    Summary

    “How did you get here,” Vanea demands, a lot more hostile than Tyrea’s used to, “and of all the many valuable, defunct pieces of machinery in Agniratha, why did you choose to raid the ether accelerator? Why are you still standing in the chamber?

    Shulk shuffles his feet but makes no attempt to move. “It’s... kind of a long story?”

    “I have time,” Vanea says sharply.

    “Well, this should be fun,” Tyrea mumbles, though clearly not quietly enough, because now Vanea’s giving her the evil side-eye. “Awesome. Wonderful. Fall in, team. Let’s tell this story exactly how it stands.”

    In which Shulk, Melia, and Tyrea come to the unfortunate realization that spacetime is a lot more fragile than it seems, and doing the right thing while going fast is seriously a pain.

    Summary

    These differences between British and American terminology and culture below are all ones I have seen in Sherlock fic or that are likely to come up in Sherlock fic. It is not exhaustive and I know that I will think of or spot at least 10 more as soon as I post this, but it is a start. If you have read fic set in America written by a Brit you will know that these things jar and spoil the flow quite a lot, so here you go.

    Summary

    “YOU!”

    Aether points at himself. “Me?” he asks, confused.

    “Yes, you!” Beidou stalks over and gazes at him through her eye. “You’re the little rat who sneaked onto my ship!”

    Ningguang turns. “He sneaked onto your what?”

    “Now now, is that any way to treat my- and by extension Ningguang’s- son?”

    Aether snaps his head back. “I’m sorry, whose son?”

    Ningguang feels the blood drain from her face. “You didn’t tell him about the plan?”

    Zhongli places an arm on his shoulder. “There is no need to worry...son.”

     

    Or, Zhongli and Ningguang decide to adopt the Traveler to allow him access to Inazuma. He doesn't stop there.

    Summary

    “Quick question,” Bucky said.

    Steve looked up, but didn’t stop moving passports and stacks of cash into a nondescript blue duffel, his mind busily ticking through logistics. He’d grab the glock taped behind the hidden drawer in the desk on their way out, and they could buy new clothes once they got across the border into neutral territory, so they didn’t need much else, apart from whatever Bucky wanted to bring. One duffle should be enough. “Yeah, honey?”

    “What the fuck.”

    Summary

    There’s a boy standing in front of him, clad in purple robes more expensive than anything Wei Ying has ever had in his grasp, a scowl on his pale, regal face.
