    Summary

    Mary Bennet agrees to spend the London season with the newly married Darcys. She discovers that she would still infinitely prefer a book. But hiding in the library at balls and parties is not the solution, as an odd young man keeps turning up there.

    “'Miss Bennet', she says. I did not know my Conscience would have such an ordinary name.”

    “I am not your conscience, sir,” Mary said, feeling made fun of and annoyed to be shaken out of her reverie for nonsense. “And whimsicality such as this, whilst charming in a child, is not so appealing in a grown man.”

    “Wait,” he said. “Do wait. I am so used to speaking in that silly way with silly young women that I quite forgot myself. Please stay and talk a little more.”

    (from the prompt "Mary's season in London. Her moralising is a trial to her sisters but in the end she outshines them all.")

    ETA Thank you to Prinzenhasserin for helping me bounce around some ideas, and to Burglebezzlement for the offer of betaing!

    Summary

    Life surprises a Dragon Age fan who wakes up in the body of Kaaras Adaar. When push comes to shove, what else can you do but help to save the world?

    Corypheus better watch out. This dimensionally displaced Herald will certainly create havoc as they sing and awkwardly flirt their way across Thedas.

    “That's how it starts,” Varric whispered conspiratorially, “the Herald offers you a drink and the next thing you know, you're rescuing kittens out of trees with him.”

    Lovable character is earning their esteem with the little things he does, not with posturing and suck-up speeches.
    Author's got funny lines.

    Summary

    In which Desmond ends up back in time and doesn't so much decide to use it to deal with some hangups he had about Ezio's life as much as sort of... falls into doing it because of bitterness and spite and some very questionable medicine.
