    Summary

    There are many things Hizashi Yamada wanted to do on his night off.
    There is a stack of bills on his coffee table that desperately needs his attention, for one. Mr Mao also needs her litter changed, and there are several clubs still open at this hour that don't have him on their ban lists.
    Tripping on a dead body in this stinky alley way was not on the agenda!
    He's mortified and probably going to have nightmares for years, but damn is this a little sad. Calling it in and covering the poor guy with his jacket to give him some semblance of dignity, he goes home with the intention to drink until he can't think about it anymore.
    Waking up to find the aforementioned dead guy in his living room was also not in his schedule.
    And neither is the absolute clusterfuck of a mission that the man (zombie? or uh ghost??) slaps him with either.
    But he's got the next week off and just enough self respect left in him to consider doing something good with his time on this shitty planet. Might as well take down a human trafficking ring or two.
    The fact that dark, brooding, and tragic is exactly his type helps a little.

    Summary

    Hermione
    One bad decision would change my life forever. I couldn't have anticipated when I walked home from work that night that I'd bear witness to the murder of our city's most notorious gangster. The bad guys didn't notice me at the time, but I sure have their attention now. I've sacrificed everything with one goal in my life, to be a doctor, and to save lives. Nothing, not the criminals who walk our streets or Detective Harry Potter, the mule-headed cop determined to protect me, is going to get in my way.
    Harry
    I took a vow to defend and serve. First, in the royal marines, and now, as a Detective for Hogsmeade PD. Women and romance have no place in a life like mine. But from the moment I laid on eyes on Dr. Hermione Granger, she's sparked every protective instinct I have. Smart, stubborn, and a little bit of a badass; I can't help it if she reminds me of myself. If I keep showing up at the same places as her, it's only to keep her safe. I don't do relationships after all. However, I'm not the only one watching her now. If she's not careful, I'm going to watch her get herself killed.

    Summary

    Winter in Os Alta was serious business; it’d been snowing since the sunup and according to the forecast on her phone when she’d opened it to check about making plans, it wasn’t going to stop anytime soon. 

    But that didn’t explain just why it was so damn cold in their house. 

    Well, her step-dad’s house.

    Summary

    He had pushed it away.

    It was dangerous and futile to have even let his eyes rest on her for more than a moment back then. She was his senior, even if he towered over her, even in high school. And now here he was staring at her at length, her beautiful eyes lowered on the label of the beer. He had been protecting himself when he pushed away the image of her, too embarrassed by what he’d been witness to the last time he saw her. He was too young and ashamed, enraged and frustrated.

    But then the real reason it was dangerous to even look entered the frame.

    Nanami watched, his heart sealing up, as Gojo Satoru stepped into Utahime’s space and touched her.

    Summary

    In this world, there are things that are not seen, but are to be believed. Magic exists, hidden away in the shadows for their own protection... and protecting our own.

    Minato Arisato is a witch who has several personal issues with magic following the deaths of his parents and who has trouble following him wherever he goes. His bubbly cousin, Kotone, on the other hand... is the exact opposite. Together, the two of them are bound to stir up something in the city of Iwatodai when they're given the opportunity to spend the second year of high school there.

    But then again, like with everything else in this world, Iwatodai might not be exactly what it seems. Minato's and Kotone's lives are about to change — both for the better and for the worst.

    Summary

    “You could ask Santa for a boyfriend at the Christmas Party!” Morgan cried in excitement. “Isn’t that what you told Auntie Peggy? That you needed a boyfriend or you might actually die of horn--”

    “Okay! And that’s enough out of you!” Tony clapped his hand over Morgan’s mouth in a futile attempt to hush the little girl up, as if she hadn’t already said about the most embarrassing thing humanly possible in front of the world’s hottest security guard. “Mr. Barnes, thank you for the information on the Christmas party, and uh--uh we’ll see you later?”

    “Have a good night, Mr. Stark.” Armed with the information that apparently Tony wanted a boyfriend for Christmas-- and pausing long enough to watch the way that booty moved when Tony hurried towards the elevator-- Bucky picked up his phone to text one of the other security guards.

    From Bucky: Stevie, let me be Santa this year

    From Steve: Why so you can have that hot science teacher sit on your lap?

    From Bucky: .... yes?

    From Steve: OH MY GOD BUCKY

    Summary

    The invitation did hold an option of a Plus One and it would be beneficial to have the detective somewhere he could monitor him. He sighed a weary sigh that Ranpo just knew meant he was considering to give in. With a beaming smile, Ranpo chimed "Thanks President, I knew you'd see things my way!" and walked out the office. He's handled Ranpo for just over 12 years, he could handle 2 weeks.

     

     

    Edogawa Ranpo and Fukuzawa Yukichi have gone one a cruise sponsored by one of Fukuzawa's former clients from his bodyguarding days. It seemed that they were going to have a nice typical mini vacation as they head towards the Philipines but this gets grinded to a halt the moment a wealthy heiress on board gets murdered.
    Ranpo would have to use his detective skills and keep his wits about him in order to solve the case and find the murderer in time before more people got killed or worse, before a rival detective figures out whodunnit first.

    Summary

    A ragbag of little vignettes, some ridiculously serious or blasphemous, sweet or smutty, but all are wrote four hands with no other link between themselves than being a tribute to Erik and Charles, those men in love, whom Marcel Proust would have called in another place and another time, Charlistes. (That's a codename for gay men in Proust's Remembrance of Things Past, which is a pretty coincidence if we think of it, isn't it?)

    Summary

    Adam just wanted to get his deal and get out, but the hot guy with the nice eyes had a different agenda.

    “This asshole is trying to steal Declan’s Instant Pot.”

    “And I told you, I had it first. You’re trying to steal my Instant Pot.”

    “Oooo,” Matthew said delightedly, “are you going to duel for it?”

    Ronan snorted. “No, I’m going to create a distraction and you’re going to reach in and grab it.”

    “You know,” Adam said slowly, “if you’re trying to come up with a devious scheme, you should probably go make plans in secret. Over there. Where the guy you’re trying to con can’t hear you.”

    Summary

    If you told Xiao five minutes ago he was about to join some enthusiastic stranger’s band, he probably would have laughed. Even though he pretty much never laughed. If you told him right then, right after it happened, he might have still laughed. This wasn’t his life, and he had no idea who was driving it anymore, but now he was in a band and the frontman could only be described with one word in Xiao’s mind: trouble.

    Oh yeah, and Trouble (spelled V-E-N-T-I) has an odd habit of making Xiao hallucinate. There’s that too.

While they're inclined to only engage from afar, the holiday spirit -- and a meddling a pair of teenagers --keep shoving them into close quarters. There's only two ways this can end: classic Christmas Movie, or classic Christmas Catastrophe.

    Summary

    In the midst of the buzzing in the coffeeshop, the only thing you could hear was the ticking of the clock. It made you feel numb. And that was good, you supposed. You tuned out everything until it was all a haze, and work doesn’t seem so daunting anymore.

    As always.

    Yuuji was thinking of how to word his finding when an answer involuntarily escaped him, “Nothing. There was nothing there, no ghosts, no spirits, no demons—” his breath hitched slightly at that “—the shed didn’t even shake.” No, that’s not what happened. Why...?
