A Simple Plan – Chapter 12 – Lerah99

Chapter 12 – Laying the Groundwork “Using the runic circle I’ve constructed and Lord Black’s blood, I can suppress the loyalty oath for as long as it takes for Lord Black’s blood to dry on Sirius’s heart and solar plexus chakras. Once it dries, I’ll have to scrape it off with a razor and apply new blood. So talk quickly and obtain the knowledge and consent for your ritual in three hours. This loyalty oath…

Swingin’ on the Vegas Strip – Interlude by LuvzDiNozzo

“What does this mean, Doc?” Danny asked, but Spencer stayed quiet. Shaking his head, he turned his gaze to Aaron wishing his mate was awake as his mind began turning over the possibilities. Somewhere in the background, he heard Emily explaining quietly to Danny about him solving puzzles in his head. Then, at some point, they left as Jasmine came back, but Spencer didn’t comment. Instead he tried to figure out what was happening to The Community, because it was painfully obvious to him that something important was changing.

Undercover Boss – Chapter 5a – Goddess47

  John crawled out of bed early, so he could swing by a local deli for something for breakfast. Since they had a reasonably decent dinner and he knew Norah would make sure that lunch would be decent, he didn’t feel too bad about indulging in some not necessarily healthy breakfast. He pulled into Rodney’s driveway at promptly six-thirty, and Rodney was immediately out the door to greet him. John handed Rodney a large coffee.…

From Out of the Ashes – Chapter Eight by Starkindler

Chapter Eight   “So, I hear through the grapevine that there was some excitement in your Magical Beings class last week.” Stiles stared flatly at a smiling Dr. Richards. “You could say that.” “So. Harpies. We haven’t really talked about them yet, have we?” “No. Kind of glossed over that when it came up, but it’s not like it’s my only issue, so…” He shrugged. “That’s true. You are kind of a hot mess,” she…

Sing Out Your Dead – Part 2 – quicksylver28

A hot and heady wind kicked up the loose dry dirt of main street, clinging to the hem of the simple black dress and pointed black boots as they strode across the way and up unto the creaking, sun bleached porch of the general store. The sharp clang of the bell above the door seemed to stop all conversation and as the clack clack of sensible heels echoed through the near silent store.   Deft…

Darkly Loyal-Chapter 30c – Keira Marcos

Draco shot forward from his place and leaned down in Dawlish face. “Just seven. Another soul has already been chosen to replace Riddle.” He laughed, cold and hard. “Tell me, John, how is your grandfather going to react when he discovers that he’s repeatedly driven the soul of his only son to kill himself? This whole mythology he built—it was just to punish Magic and Zir for the death of his son. You realize that right? His prejudice drove Ewan to kill himself, and Flamel has been seeking revenge for hundreds of years.”

From Out of the Ashes – Chapter Six by Starkindler

Chapter Six   “Wakey, wakey.” Stiles groaned and shoved his head under his pillow. He thought about hitting the invader with it, but considering who it was, he’d regret it horribly if he gave in to his impulses. “Go away.” “Can’t do that. Sorry, Stiles,” Lydia said, plopping down on his bed. “It’s time for all good boys to get up and help with the food prep for tonight and tomorrow. Plus, there’s more baking…

Darkly Loyal-Chapter 30b – Keira Marcos

They’d dosed Dawlish with a surgical sedative and dumped him in a single cell they’d created in the trunk for prisoners. Killing him was definitely on Harry’s ‘to-do’ list, but they wanted to make sure that the Flamels were in their grasp before they extinguished the only genuine link to they had to the Lux Ordinis. They’d decided that eliminating the Flamels would take center stage as the others in the sect would be much…

A Simple Plan – Chapter 9 – Lerah99

Chapter 9 – Sirius   Sirius feels the dementors leave. Knowing human guards will come by soon he shifts into his human skin. Azkaban is even colder without his fur. It’s not a meal time. It’s early morning but the sun hasn’t started to rise. “Good. Maybe they’ll kill me.” Sirius thinks with a vicious pleasure. Anger and resentment churning deep in his belly. It won’t be the first time a couple of guards have…
