    Summary

    “I wish you had gone to juvie.” 

    There was one of those automated clap-tracks on the television as another contestant got the question correct. Gallagher’s eyes were dark as the blue lights of the television screen threw weird shadows onto his face. Mickey wished, almost idly, that there was more lighting in the Milkovich household, if just so that Gallagher didn’t look so ominous. He picked up the remote and muted the TV.

    A canon-divergent story from 1x09, in which Tony Markovich suspected foul play and coerced an unwilling Mickey Milkovich into revealing the truth about Kash Karib.

    Summary

    He knows his name, Uzumaki Naruto, but what does it mean? Where does Uzumaki come from? Is that really even his name? It can’t be a standard name they give orphans, because even when he still stayed in the orphanage, he was the only one with that name. Plenty of kids had no last name at all, which makes it more believable that Uzumaki is his real family name.

    But what does that mean? Who are the Uzumaki? Is he the only one left? How can he find out? Were his family shinobi? Merchants? Regular civilians?

    He is determined to find out.

    Summary

    “Atlantis has always had a King,” said Merlin, a worried frown settled on his features. Arthur longed to kiss his worries away, were it not for the impossible task still ahead. “Now, it needs something more.”

    The Trident’s recovery a constant weight on his shoulders, Arthur returned the intense gaze of his gorgeous companion. “What could be greater than a King?”

    “A Hero.”

    ---

    Arthur is a half-human, half-atlantean warrior, popularly known as the Aquaman. Following his world saving feat with his fellow League heroes, he does his best to use his natural abilities for the good of humankind. Enter captivating, fierce Merlin, a Prince of the Seas, who insists on Arthur’s help to stop his power hungry half-brother King Mordred from forcefully uniting the oceanic people to conquer the surface world.

    The Kingdom of Atlantis needs its one true heir to take the throne, but can Arthur set aside his anger at the people who murdered his Queen Mother for bearing a half-breed? Amid Primordial Creatures, Legendary Weapons and Powerful Sea Sorcerers, Arthur must stop a great war and save everyone, while enduring Merlin’s irresistible self.

    Easier said than done.

    Summary

    World War III came and went, and with it the discovery of magic was made. Discovered, dragged straining into the light, and accused of being the power of the devil himself.
    Since, the world has become a dangerous place - fatally dangerous - for any with the spark of magic. Merlin has always known this. He's known it for as long as he could remember, since his father told him at a young age that he must keep his magic hidden. More than that, he knew from the memory of the past lives he'd lived, lives that only those imbued with magic could recall. Watching sorcerers captured, tortured in the streets, dragged off like rabid criminals by the authorities only confirmed what he already knew. Merlin has been exposed to this time and time again, with strangers, then with his father himself. The authorities have ways to subdue sorcerers. Merlin did his best to avoid them, until the time that he... couldn't.
    When Arthur awoke it was to a world he didn't know. A broken, dark, horrifying world of confusion and hatred. With only his memories of a forgotten kingdom to hold on to, he claws after the only person he knew to still exist. If only the world weren't so huge it would be far easier to find him.

    Summary

    Arthur has always had distant dreams of leaving Camelot. They were never more than a wistful fantasy, at least once he grew up.

    Finding out about Merlin’s magic changes everything though, and not only because Arthur would do more to keep Merlin safe than he cares to admit. What follows are secrets upon secrets, allowing the dreams to slip back in as all his father’s lies unravel around him. Slowly but surely, Camelot feels less like a home and more like a gilded cage, and Arthur isn’t so certain anymore whether he’s the right person to carry this legacy. If he even wants to.

    One final secret, one opportunity, and suddenly the dreams aren’t mere dreams anymore. Merlin wouldn’t be Merlin if he didn’t follow wherever Arthur goes, and as they try to outrun Uther’s manhunt for them, they have to learn to live a life that’s about more than duty, other’s expectations, and a destiny that has never once cared for them.

    Or: Arthur long since expected that one day, he might have to flee Camelot with Merlin. He just never thought that he would be the reason.

    Summary

    Take heart; for when Albion's need is greatest, Arthur will rise again.

    Agent Arthur Pendragon is the best assassin the agency has ever seen, trained and honed to be MI6’s finest weapon.
    He does not need a voice in his ear telling him how to do his job. He does not listen to stubborn geniuses who apparently had no sense of self-preservation and enjoyed baiting professional killers.
    He certainly does not fall in love with quartermasters with haunting blue-gold eyes and an irritating habit of saving his life.

    But Merlin has secrets of his own - a heritage he can't face, and a past he’s been running from for twelve years. Not to mention the impossible magic coursing through his veins, the likes of which the world hasn't seen for an age.

    And as London’s days grow darker, as old loyalties are pushed to breaking point and the fragile trust they’ve built between them is more crucial than ever, Merlin is forced to admit that maybe you can’t run from the past forever, and that secrets aways come with a price.

    Summary

    A fast ship, a good crew, a treasure, a Clan to lead -- that's all Arthur Pendragon has ever wanted. He sits on the Council, he supports his father's kingship, and he keeps an eye on the Imperial Conglomerate when they come too close to Pirate space.

    One day the Conglomerate infiltrates the Clans and poisons the King. Arthur must search for a cure to keep his father alive and the Clans from civil war.

    An escape route, a sharp knife, a target, the shadows at his command -- that's all Merlin has ever needed. He fulfills his assignments, he uses the Sterling to sustain his once-royal House in their exile, and wages a private war against the Imperial Conglomerate.

    When he learns of an elaborate plot to assassinate him, Merlin does the opposite of what's expected. He flees onto a Pirate ship.

    There's a saying among the Pirates: that one's fate is written in the stars. Destiny will always set to rights what has been made wrong.

    Arthur and Merlin know that they were meant for the other from the moment they meet. They can feel it from across the galaxies separating them. Nothing can stop them from being together or from fulfilling an ancient prophecy.

    Summary

    The Soldier is the best of the best, the assassin his employers send when they don't want it to look like a murder—or when they want it to be an all-too-obvious murder, when they want a shot from a position that no one else could have made, a death so blatant that no one else could have pulled it off.

    Well, almost no one else.

    There's the Captain, of course, although the Soldier hates to admit it. But the Captain is his equal, and the two of them have spent years thwarting each other. Their employers are most often on opposite sides, and the Soldier has come up against the Captain so often that the familiarity he feels when he sees him is dangerously close to fondness.

    ~o~

    In which two hitmen discover, against all rational thought, that they have feelings for each other.

    Summary

    The absolute last thing Mickey expects when he goes to the bar is to get badgered into doing softcore porn, but the money sounds good. And this redhead won't leave him the fuck alone until he agrees. And maybe partnering up with him for a couple POV shots wouldn't be the worst thing on the planet.

    Mickey's smart enough to recognize a slippery slope when he wants to. But he's gotta want to. And tonight the slippery slope is wearing body glitter and short-shorts.

    Summary

    Fresh off a prison sentence, Ian Gallagher is lost, wandering aimlessly through a life that doesn’t feel like his anymore. So when Lip offers him a fresh start halfway across the country, he takes it. He’s not sure what he expected from the small, Northern California town of Charming, but it certainly didn’t involve a closeted, dark-haired, blue-eyed member of the local motorcycle gang turning his life upside down. His head tells him to get the hell out of dodge, but there’s just something about him Ian can’t let go. And maybe he’ll fly too close to the sun and get burned. But it’ll be a beautiful fucking fire.
