Summary: "And remember: Star-Burns died for your sins."
This will be an episodic series of twelve installments. Each installment will be fairly self-contained, but they'll all string together to form a larger overarching plot, so you can stop reading at any point, etc. This is effectively an alternate Season 4.</p>
[personal profile] irisbleufic wrote the perfect alternate episode where Troy and Abed finally realize that they are in love, and do something about it. Then, as if that weren't awesome enough, she wrote another episode, and now there's going to be a whole alternate season four. The season four that could have existed if the show had been picked up at the end of season three by HBO or Showtime.

Relationships: Will Graham & Hannibal Lecter, Will Graham/Hannibal Lecter
Characters: Will Graham, Hannibal Lecter

Series: Part 1 of Staccato

Will lets something slip to Dr. Lecter in one of their conversations. Dr. Lecter isn't about to let it go.

This is the first story in an ongoing series/WIP, and I'm linking to the whole thing, but it's easier to use the sharing code for a story, since there isn't any equivalent for a series on AO3.

I'm loving the slow build and how much the negotiation phase is a kink in itself, which fits especially well with Hannibal's character. This is a guy who likes to listen.

Relationships: Maree Mallory/Rupert Venables, Roddy Hyde/Nick Mallory
Characters: Roddy Hyde, Nick Mallory, Maree Mallory
Additional Tags: Siblings, Sleep, Pasta, the trouble with forgetting, First Crush

Nick isn't quite all right yet, but it's nothing a little magic and kindness can't fix.

This is the closest thing that currently exists to the Maree/Nick fic that I so desperately crave. Really lovely funny Maree&Nick gen post-Merlin Conspiracy.

Oh, gosh! Thank you for the rec :-D I just came over here to see what RL shenanigans you've got going and found this (well, and Marcus Aurelius \m/) I'm kind of flabbergasted that I posted Part 5 of this nonsense yesterday. IT DOES NOT STOP.
I'm using this unexpected sick-day as a reread-everything-penned-up-till-this-point and plot-everything-that-needs-to-happen-in-the-back-five-or-seven-installments brainstorm session. Also having a what-is-my-life moment in the process...
Thank you <3 But seriously, I needed the time-out. My body's good at pulling the plug on my bullshit every once in a while.
