    Summary

    Summary: 1955. Under the placid veneer of suburban playparks and middle-class conformity churns a hidden London: femmes and butches dancing close in basement bars; clandestine love between women. To Sherlock Holmes, struggling private detective and mistress of disguise, it’s a realm she renounced years before. To Johnnie Watson, daredevil ambulance driver turned auto mechanic, it’s become a little too familiar. But when someone is murdered in the washroom of the city’s most notorious lesbian club, the investigation will lead both women to reconsider their assumptions about themselves, each other, and the world in which they live.

    Summary

    “I know what Midsummer is,” said Nicky as they climbed the wooden slats that make their ascent from the docks. “We have it in Sweden.”

    “Believe me,” said Sasha, “You’ve never seen it like this,” he grinned. “We have drinks, vodka. Flowers— I’ll get you a crown!” He mimed placing one on Nicklas’s head, and Nicklas swatted his hand away. “Food, girls,” he went on. “Listen. The sun never sets.”

    For all it sounded like he was promising miracles, Nicky knew he spoke truth like a holy water spring. He tried to look unimpressed anyway."

     

    Sasha, Nicky, Sweden, Russia, war, peace, winning, losing: historical AU, Summer 1710, the Great Northern War.

    Summary

    God supposedly had a plan. Whether it was one that would ever be shared with Nicklas was irrelevant, but sometimes he really wished a bush would burst into flames and tell him what to do. That sounded very relaxing.

    Oh, look, the other miracle-ridden, angst-laden, slow-burn romantic, theologically dubious yet highly compelling, hair-raisingly beautifully written road trip fic where Nicky is a priest that makes me scream into a pillow whenever I remember it exists!!! Really can't have enough of those tbh I fucking live for this shit

    “I hope you’re going to tell me that you’re in a loving, committed, long-term relationship,” Jen said.

    “Well. No,” Sidney said. “We’re—it’s a casual thing.”

    “Not anymore,” Jen said. “Congratulations, you’re in love.”
