Title: Solitary Confinement (Chapter 4 of ?)
Author: Merucha
Characters: Criminal Minds/Torchwood
Rating: Some chapters definitely not safe for work. Disclaimer: Oh, please. If I owned them, would I let some of those idiots write the scripts? And if I were making any money off them, would I be where they could find me?
Summary: Aaron Hotchner's secrets and the real reason for the existence of the BAU team is revealed when a terrible serial killer strikes...
Author's Note: People are the only mirror we have to see ourselves in. The domain of all meaning. All virtue, all evil, are contained only in people. There is none in the universe at large. Solitary confinement is a punishment in every human culture. Lois McMaster Bujold. Mirror Dance.
Author's Note: Fire and Ice, by Robert Frost


Part one is here; part two is here; Part three is here


My mother's favorite poem is Fire and Ice by Robert Frost. I once asked her why, of all the words of all the authors she had studied, all the great poets, playwrights and novelists, she loved that little nine-line stanza with no set meter or rhyme the most. It teaches you what to look for, she had said, and refused to say anything else, although she smiled as if keeping a secret. At the time I'd thought it had been just another symptom of her illness.

Part one is here; part two is here

“You have a key to the back door of the American Museum of Natural History.”

The disbelief in Reid's voice make Hotch want to laugh out loud. Instead he gave his subordinate one of his best raised-eyebrow looks. “Have I managed to impress you?”

Reid grinned at him. “Ultimate geek cool.”

Title: The Queen's Magicians: Past Grief (3/4)
Author: Emma
Characters: Canonical Torchwood Three members… sort of.
Rating: Some chapters definitely not safe for work.
Disclaimer: Oh, please. If I owned them, would I let some of those idiots write the scripts? And if I were making any money off them, would I be where they could find me?
Summary: Jack is back, but trouble arrives in the form of one of his oldest enemies

Author's Note: the title comes from A Winter's Tale, Act 3 Scene 2: What's gone and what's past help Should be past grief.

Author's Note: Gwenllian was the daughter of Prince Llywelyn the Last. As her father had no male heirs, she was first in line to her father's throne. When she was just a few months old her father was killed and she was imprisoned for life in a monastery on the orders of Edward I. In “my” history, Llywelyn and Edward, after years of inconclusive fighting, betrothed their children. After their deaths, the Kingdoms of England and Gwynnedd descended to Edward II and his wife, Gwenllian, Queen of England and Princess of Wales.

Title: Bred in the Bone (19/20)

Author: Emma

Characters: Jack Harkness, Ianto Jones, Andy Davidson, Toshiko Sato, others

Rating: Starts PG, but hey, it’s got Jack and Ianto in it!

Disclaimer: Oh, please. If I owned them, would I let some of those idiots write the scripts? And if I were making any money off them, would I be where they could find me?

Summary: Andy Davidson must embrace his inheritance in order to protect Jack and Ianto’s daughter Gwen

Author's Note: This is an AU where Gwen and Owen were killed by Gray. So if you want to know why Martha is married to Rhys and Jack and Ianto have a CP and two adopted daughters, you may want to read Evolution first

Author’s Note: The title is shamelessly stolen from Robertson Davies’s magnificent novel. It’s also an old saying: what’s bred in the bone will out in the flesh
