    Summary

    "Harry Hart (1960-) is one of this century's most renowned painters. Hart is known by the country's elite and the public for his Royal portraits, as well as views and landscapes of London wherein his training in Florence and Camberwell shines through. Though his portraits have inspired comparison to the work of Sargent or Boldini, his landscapes are reminiscent of Martin or Pether. In this twenty-first century, Hart's work has the old-fashioned, well-loved, academic quality that lines museums even nowadays[...]"

    Harry Hart is fifty-six, and bored.

    And then a boy smashes into his life like the first smear of paint on a blank canvas.

    Summary

    It’s long been instilled in Harry that marriage was not to be taken lightly, and yet here he is, about to be—literally—unceremoniously fake-married to a boy less than half his age, his protégé even, all in the name of Kingsman and country.

    Summary

    “Oh, my God,” Roxy mutters, giving up her usual decorum in favour of slumping her head into her hands. “We’re going to be married, you idiot.”

    Oh. Oh.

    “Not if that’s how you’re gonna ask me,” Eggsy tells her indignantly. “Honestly, Rox, is the romance gone already?”

    (Or: Roxy and Eggsy have to play at being married for a mission. Meanwhile, Eggsy struggles to understand just why, exactly, Harry has been acting so rotten lately.)

    Summary

    The Weeping Angels, Eggsy reads on the stolen Torchwood intel. Aliens that pose as statues, and kill their victims by sending them back in time and feeding off their years not lived in the present. The politest psychopaths in the universe, a note reads, scrawled in what looks like a doctor’s chicken scratch on the edge of the page by someone who clearly had a perverse sense of humour. A one way trip, the report concludes; you get transported by the angels, and it’s the slow road back to the present for you.

    Eggsy lays his head back on the wall, takes stock of his situation. He’s lost 30 years - three years more than his entire lifespan up ’til now - in the blink of an eye, and now he’s stuck here, in 1988. Three years before he’s even born. Arthur, the prick, is sure to be heading up the Kingsmen, and Merlin, if he’s even there would be…20, maybe. Fuck, so fucking young.

    Shite, even Harry’d only be…

    Alive, Eggsy thinks, and finds himself sitting down hard from where his knees can’t hold him. This is 1988, and Harry’s 23, and alive.

    Suddenly, being stuck in 1988 doesn’t seem so bad.

    Or, the one where love means changing the future. Harry/Eggsy, Time Travel Fix-It.
