    Summary

    Love is a dagger. It’s a weapon to be wielded far away or up close. You can see yourself in it. It’s beautiful. Until it makes you bleed.

    Various one-shots of Sylvie and Loki hooking up in wildly varying settings. Read the tags. Enjoy.

    Summary

    It's possible some people reading The Corinthian's Lady have been wondering if I am going to Go There. Well, I am. I know some reviewers of the original novel have suggested - given a couple of things Louisa and Cedric say about his past - that Sir Richard is not entirely, exclusively heterosexual. Perhaps he isn't. (There are also some odd reviews that suggest that his being gay is why he falls for Pen dressed as a boy, but I'm not sure *that's* really how human sexuality works. He knows she's a girl, we can be absolutely sure, right from the beginning, because he's had his hands on her body, which I've never seen anyone mention. There is a LOT more *accidental* (or is it?) physical contact between the protagonists in Corinthian than is usual in Heyer).

    Some people don't like fanfic that could be seen as undermining the central relationship, which is why I've posted this separately. (Also it's much more explicit). But I hope you will agree that I'm not trying to do that here. Quite the reverse, in fact. But when Sir Richard described his romantic past to Pen in chapter 16 of A Corinthian's Lady, he didn't go into much detail, and he might also have left something out...

    Summary

    A prompt from the list of additional Whumptober prompts, but not treated as whump at all: just Philippa touching Francis and being glad he is alive. Pure, tooth-melting fluff.

    From the scene at the end of Checkmate where she runs towards him, expanded on as an exploration of sensation.

    Summary

    Emma pressed her thumbs to the hot pink flush of his cheeks, a little less than gentle. “Darling Mr Woodhouse,” she said, watching his eyelashes flutter, the corners of his mouth curl upward, “I can barely stand how much I love you, how much I’d thrill to keep you here forever.”

    “Then keep me,” he said quietly, firmly, “keep me, Emma, I’m yours.”

    Summary

    After the Box Hill incident, Mr Knightley thinks he's lost Emma to Frank Churchill. And then everybody starts behaving oddly.

    'Discomfited, he turned to go and found himself confronted by the gang of Mrs Goddard’s girls, standing shoulder to shoulder, with their eyes fixed upon him as if he were a particularly desirable ribbon.'
