    Summary

    RE6 ends on an apocalyptic note, and Chris Redfield leads a small group of survivors in the aftermath. Who should join them but Wesker, somehow alive again and as infatuated with Chris as ever. Chris would have to be losing his mind to love his old rival. Apparently he’s halfway there, though, because whenever he sleeps he’s leading a double life — one without zombies where he and Wesker are married.

    Summary

    Was this what lust could do to a man? This was no natural lust, he conceded, for he had never felt such a passionate longing in his life. This was the lust that must strike the heart of a man who has come to know Satan's bed. Should this be weakness, he must own to it. He must exalt in it. Surely this was the fire that gleamed red in the heart of the Carpathians.

    Summary

    An AU where David is Polly's adoptive brother, who has lost most of his long term memory due to an attempted suicide, he left no note and their relationship was strained at the time, so why David did it is a mystery. He's been okay with that. For the most part. He has many questions about his past. Including why he has a box filled with voyeuristic surveillance photos of a blond man he does not know. His best guess is that it's the same man who called his landline demanding to be left alone, the week after the accident. And when, years later, David crosses paths with the man again, purely by coincidence mind you, his curiosity is far too strong to ignore. He was never one known for having self control. Polly will have to not only be her brother's voice of reason, but Joel's as well. Joel wants nothing to do with David, he has his own shit going on. Like recovering from a meth and alcohol addiction. He's just gotten sober. He doesn't need whatever shit David has to bring with him. But here's the thing. Addiction often needs to be curbed through refocusing an obsession, restlessness, and misery. And Joel isn't just miserable, he's bored to death. David is a shitshow, but Joel's already bought first row tickets for it.

    Summary

    My heart aches, and a drowsy numbness pains/My sense, as though of hemlock I had drunk… /That I might drink, and leave the world unseen,/And with thee fade away into the forest dim.../ Now more than ever seems it rich to die,/To cease upon the midnight with no pain…

    - Ode to a Nightingale, John Keats

    -----

    Giuliano, Francesco pondered, was a Nightingale; free and unrestrained, he flew through life with his wings spread wide. Beautiful and unhindered by the burden of responsibility or cruel, cumbersome love. He did what he wanted with no care for the consequences (or at least it appeared that way- secretly, Francesco thought that most of Giuliano's actions weren't as thoughtless as they seemed).

    But then Simonetta came along and his beautiful wings were suddenly clipped. His world shifted to orbit hers with a devotion that made something hard and bitter curl at the back of Francesco's throat. It bit him, like thorns in his mouth, leaving it bloody and tangy with the taste of copper.

    Summary

    From that first moment they met, there was an undeniable chemistry that surprised them both. When Lucifer flirted with the new lieutenant, neither of them had expected him to flirt back and a tiny kernel of an idea was planted. Just as it seemed likely to pass without further comment or action, the undercover operation happened, opening their eyes again.

    A self-involved, pleasure-driven, fallen angel and a bitter, emotionally closed-off, suicidal immortal - what chance could they possibly have to build something meaningful together?
