    Summary

    Ed is an engineer aboard the Revenge, an interplanetary research vessel on a multi-year mission to study Jupiter's moon Europa. An accident requires that Ed awaken from cryostasis over six months early, and finds his only companion to be Stede, the ship's onboard AI. They develop an unconventional friendship, but is it possible to have more?

    This is classic mutual pining with a sci-fi twist, inspired by all of my favorite stories about the nature of personhood.

    “You–” Ed was struggling to parse what Stede was saying. “You’re playing your version of this song for me, right now? Like, in real time?”

    “Yes, Edward, that’s correct,” said Stede softly.

    Ed’s brain momentarily seized up. He supposed it made sense that Stede was capable of learning a set of rules to do something like arrange and play a piece of music. There was something unnerving about this song, though. It felt, well–it felt organic . Reactive. Almost collaborative in a way. Ed was lost in the push and pull of it, until the last notes softly petered out.

    “So, what did you think?” asked Stede. It sounded nervous again. Why the hell would someone program an anxiety response into a bot?

    Summary

    When Hannibal pops up next to Will in an FBI Academy graduation photo, the result is innocent enough...until Will's coworkers play with photoshop and make the image so much worse. Will would laugh it off, but it seems he can't take a picture without Hannibal showing up in the background.

    Can Will shake his persistent photo buddy? And more importantly...does he want to?

    Summary

    Hannibal Lecter and Will Graham have been expelled from Ilvermorny as a result of a sad, sad incident.
    Thanks to Hannibal's chaotic history, Hogwarts is their last hope to save their education and possibly their future. Yet, Hannibal's person suit is still a work in progress, and Will's metamorphosis is a violent one at best.

    On the other hand, Harry, Ron and Hermione just begin their fifth year at Hogwart and they already have a lot to deal with. The two new boys are clearly not on their list of concerns. And why should they? As far as the Golden Trio can tell, they seem likeable enough, even if a bit weird.

    A story following the events of The Order of the Phoenix, featuring Murder Husbands in the making.

    Summary

    Izzy is glaring at all of these fuckers prancing about the fucking beach like this is normal. He can’t believe these bloody idiots brought children to interact with fucking pirates. What kind of irresponsible parenting is that? And there’s Jim, teaching the fucking daughter how to throw fucking knives? No- he’s not gonna do it. Not getting involved none of his fucking- oh bloody hell. With a growl Izzy storms over to them. Not like they’re gonna listen to him but better he try to intervene now before the girl earns a stab wound and Mary tries to murder Jim. Something tells him she has that in her.

    Life on the ship goes on. Izzy continues to be forcibly adopted and bullied by the crew while learning what emotions are, their newest crew member settles more fully into her new home, all the couples continue to be disgustingly in love, and Lucius is fucking done with being the only crew member with fucking eyes.

    (If you're just joining there's a quick and dirty summary of the series in the notes)
