Summary:

The evolution of Partially Deceased Syndrome through the notes and articles of the doctors who treated them and, through blogs and newspapers of the time.

We, the undersigned, seek a waiver for the following proposed clinical trial [Neurotryptiline: its therapeutic and restorative effects amongst a Partially Diseased Syndrome cohort], citing the clinical condition of the study participants and the precedent that the need for ethical approval can be waived if study participants are deceased.

Bookmarker's Notes:

This collection of documents, emails, and social media gradually builds a very disturbing picture of people's responses to PDS. The zombies aren't the monsters; we are.



without thought of thorns (6169 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Sleepy Hollow (TV)
Rating: Mature
Warnings: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings

Summary:

How did Abbie escape the dollhouse?
 
Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

Bookmarker's Notes:

Harrowing. Convincingly nightmarish. I had a hard time getting through one section, but it was worth it for the back-story and this testament to Abbie's strength of will.



Books - Horatio Hornblower

On Land and At Sea (8283 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Hornblower - C. S. Forester
Rating: Explicit

Characters: Horatio Hornblower, Barbara Wellesley, William Bush
Additional Tags: Polyamory
Summary:

Hornblower introduces his captain to his wife. (A missing chapter from the beginning of Commodore Hornblower.)

Bookmarker's Notes:

All my favorite porn this yuletide has threesomes! Barbara knows that something's been going on between her husband and Captain Bush. She's determined to face it head on, and perhaps convince them to indulge a little fantasy of hers. It turns out that Barbara likes giving orders, Bush likes following them, and Horatio has one hell of a praise kink. Mmmmmmm.

Fandom: Scarborough Fair - Simon & Garfunkel (song)
Rating: General Audiences

Relationships: Narrator/True Love
Additional Tags: Yuletide Treat, Drabble, Break Up, Angst, World War I
Summary:

Tell her to buy me an acre of land? But it is 1916, and land is bought with blood.

Bookmarker's Notes:

Once you've sent your true love off to the trenches of France, what is there left to say? 100 words of perfection.



A Haven of Iron (4938 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Tam Lin (Traditional Ballad), Tam Lin & Related Fandoms
Rating: General Audiences

Summary:

After being kidnapped as a child and raised by fairies, Tam Lin has a difficult time adjusting to life among humans once more.

Bookmarker's Notes:

A clever story featuring Tam Lin and the woman who rescued him from the Faerie Queen. It's not all magic and happily-ever-afters. This isn't THAT kind of faerie tale.



How To Write Good Fanfic (100 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: @WorstMuse
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Worst Muse (@WorstMuse)
Additional Tags: Yuletide Treat, Drabble, Bad Advice
Summary:

The Worst Muse takes on fanfic

Bookmarker's Notes:

It turns out that fanfic's worst habits aren't the writers' fault, at all. For shame, Worst Muse! Also, check out the recipient's found poetry using the contents of the drabble. Divinely-inspired, indeed.



Adiabatic (3532 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: The Young Protectors (Webcomic)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Red Hot | Kyle, Spooky Jones, Fluke | Paul
Additional Tags: Queer Gen, Spooky Is a Good Bro, Past Rape/Non-con
Summary:

Kyle has some issues with heat transfer. Spooky thinks Kyle just needs to chill. Systems are always more efficient in theory than in practice.

Bookmarker's Notes:

Here we have two high school kids with superpowers. One can't jerk off because when he gets hot, he literally catches things on fire, and the other had his formative sexual experiences in Hell ... it's a delightful friendship story, and one that makes me want to go check out the source.
