    N.B. The publication of Le Cri du Moloch means this fic is now AU. Though not by much.

    Summary

    I spent ten months writing Erik, a novel-length piece that emerged from darkrogue's excellent Project Faust series. As I wrote it became both a look at what reincarnation would be if one's memories were intact, and an exercise in wishful thinking. Erik leaves the de-aged Colonel Olrik resolved to learn from past mistakes and make a few new ones as he attempts to live within society and use laws and conventions to benefit himself. Naturally, I kept thinking about the future beyond the story, and the result is a series of snippets, mostly fluff.

    Summary

    This is a continuation of What Goes Around, which was itself inspired by the Project Faust series. What we have here is a fanfic of a fanfic with an age regression theme. "Ivan Ostrovsky" (the former Colonel Olrik) has undergone the Sato rejuvenation process and finds himself in a ridiculous situation. This won't be too much of a "cute kid" fit, because Olrik was never one of those, but I want to explore second chances, nature vs. nurture, and the mind body connection in my own silly way.

    Big thanks to darkrogue1 (Lily_Haydee_Lohdisse) for support, inspiration, and beta reading. I appreciate you!

    EDIT: What was originally a short story is turning out to be a short novel that I'm writing for... maybe three people? If you're one of the three, feel free to ask for a specific shout out in the comments. I'm already adding a few. (-:

    EDIT: This turned out not to be a *short* novel at all, but now it's done and I'll probably revise and cut some fat at a future date. A note on the chronology: obviously I've made up a lot of details about places and events. There is no Parthenon, Redwing Building or Silver Birch Academy, but they're based on real places. Movies, concerts, moon phases, etc.? All real.

    Summary

    «Fruit de coïncidences» est comme le prélude d’une petite histoire qui me traîne depuis quelque temps déjà dans la tête. Celle-ci étant centrée sur une poignée de personnages jouant un mauvais rôle dans les histoires d’Edgar P. Jacobs (en vérité mes «méchants» favoris des aventures de Blake et Mortimer) qui ne se sont, dans les albums, jamais retrouvés tous ensemble, j’ai décidé de commencer par décrire dans quelles circonstances, en résultat de quelles curieuses coïncidences cette petite équipe aurait pu se retrouver réunie. Cette séquence d’épisodes, organisée par ordre chronologique, se compose des rencontres (tout à fait aléatoires …) de ces hommes, puis des épisodes postérieurs qui introduiront l’histoire en soi, mon prochain travail (si j’arrive à venir à bout de celui-ci … :\ ).

    Summary

    The summer months were often a confusing time for Captain Blake and Professor Mortimer. It was a time, just like any other in the year, when things could 'come up', but for the most part nothing particularly special occurred, and both men simply went about their daily routines, although with far fewer layers on.
    -or-
    Thoughts on the pair in relation to summer. Inspired to some extent by 'Blake and Mortimer - Whimsical Head Canon' by Blackpenny (https://archiveofourown.org/works/8449342).

    "Now that's what I call beautiful."
    "Really?" Captain Blake regarded the red Jaguar in front of him with a blank expression. "It looks like a car to me."
    -or-
    Blake just can't seem to understand what Mortimer sees in cars- they all look the same to him, all do the same job. Maybe the professor can explain.

    "Good evening, Francis!"

    Summary

    "Squadron leader, isn't this your stop?" When Blake looked confused, the soldier- Young, he seemed to recall,- continued. "I assumed you were going to Professor Mortimer's hut…I'm sorry if I was wrong…"
    "No, Young, it was just right." Blake replied, getting off hurriedly. "Thank you."

    -or-
    Blake is worried about the future, but he can't talk about it. When he tries, he only worries Mortimer as well.

    Summary

    "Why did we stop here?" Mortimer asked, his voice slightly husky.
    "I thought you would be…interested to see what normality is."
    Mortimer turned slowly on the spot, taking in the charred trees and collapsed rooves, snapped beams protruding from the wreckage like knives in the back of the world. "So this is what Damdu's weapons did."
