    Summary

    During the First World War, a Moroccan farmwife named Samira is among hundreds of people forced to flee their wartorn countries and take refuge in England. After a series of chance encounters at King’s Cross Station, Sami finds herself at a boarding house in Dorset. Here, she meets and befriends a number of internationals, including a peculiar Belgian named Hercule Poirot.

    When one of Sami's new friends ends up implicated in a murder, Sami learns that Poirot is a formidable former police detective. He enlists her as an aide, roping into her an investigation that rapidly proves deeper than it seems. Together, Poirot, Sami, and a mysterious wayfarer calling himself Henri Defense stumble upon torrid affairs, byzantine intrigues, and frightening truths about the people they've sought refuge with...and even themselves.

    Summary

    DCI Barnaby sends Sergeant Troy out for coffee and everything changes (or: Gavin Troy learns how to fit the shape of his skin).

    (title from Ocean Vuong's Into the Breach)

    It's simple: I just don't know
    how to love a man

    gently. Tenderness
    a thing to be beaten

    into. Fireflies strung
    through sapphired air.

    You're so quiet you're almost

    tomorrow.

    Summary

    Steve didn’t know why he did it. Fury would have his neck if he found out anyone else was smoking in his back alley. Patrons were supposed to go out the front. But since his boss was already on his way to vacation in Seattle. Well?

    The other man was a good six inches taller, and when he leaned in to mooch off Steve’s light, he got a good close look at his face. Handsome, clean-shaven, chiseled features, he made a fine soldier. Steve couldn’t help but feel a twinge of jealousy.

    He also couldn’t help but feel a little bit of desire.

     

    Setting: 1950s, Alaska, during the Korean Conflict.

    Summary

    In a scientific study, a control group is used to establish a cause-and-effect relationship by isolating the effect of an independent variable. In contrast, the experimental group is where the independent variables are introduced, which may alternate depending on the nature, type, or anticipated outcome of the experiment. In the case of the experiments performed at Hawkins National Laboratory, scientists experienced a near-total loss of the control group. But what only a handful of people knew was that many of the members of the experimental group survived...and now they were being targeted.

    Also known as a "Steve has powers" fic, because I just love those! Enjoy!

    Summary

    James and Sirius had tracked him down when they were working as hired guns the previous spring. They’d tailed his pawprints, trying to find the beast responsible for halving a town’s sheep population, and found him.
    He still remembered the lofty look in Sirius’ eyes. “You’re no wolf,”
    Covered in the proof of his own transgressions, clumps of his fur stuck under his fingernails, Remus had despaired. Oh, but I am, he’d thought.

    --

    Remus, Sirius and James are outlaws on the run. Sirius insists they do one last job and go out with a bang. The aftershocks are more than they can escape on their own.

    Summary

    Your life was pretty good. You lived on a ranch with your parents, living off of the land and raising various livestock. Sure, it was simple and sometimes even a tad boring, but it was your life, and you wouldn't really want to change it.
    But when your parents start behaving odd, you take notice. Every night they leave the house, and you don't know where or why. One night they leave you and don't come back.
    When secrets are uncovered, a certain cowboy shows up to your door with a purpose, marking the beginning of a journey that could either give you answers or get you killed.

    Summary

    “Well, it’s too bad because I do feel like dancing. If you won’t, I think it would not be hard to find someone who will."

    “God damn it,” I muttered and took a deep breath. Embarrassed as I was, the idea of watching him dance slowly in the dark room with another man set my newly sharpened teeth on edge. I can’t say it was out of concern for the longevity of his dancing partner’s life. Jealousy flared in me in a way I’d never known before. Both literally and figuratively, Lestat had turned me into a green-eyed monster. He smiled and reached for my hand, knowing he’d won yet another battle. It wouldn’t be his last victory, not by a long shot.

    Summary

    Captain Robert Chakotay has lived his whole life by a code of survival, and in the midst of World War II it's taking everything he's got to keep himself and his bomber crew alive. But he's also lived by a second code - secrecy; carefully hiding in plain sight from a world that would ostracize and oppress him if they knew the truth.

    When orders take his squadron to train under the Women's AirForce Service Pilots, he begins to contemplate more than simple survival. The lead flight instructor, Kathryn Janeway, takes him by surprise in the air and on the ground, his heart yearning suddenly for this bold beautiful woman. As he considers letting Kathryn see his true self, an unexpected loss puts the survival of his crew in jeopardy, forcing Chakotay to reckon with his past if he is to have any hope of a future.

    With lives on the line, Captain Chakotay must save his friends and his entire base, though choosing the greater good comes with immense personal risk; revealing his secret could cost him the woman he loves.

    So come along to the era of big bands, bullets, and war bonds as the Voyager crew do their parts to defeat the Axis powers and find their own personal victories.
