Avengers - Loki sweet and innocent

Review: Thor The Dark World

Title: Thor The Dark World
Rating: 12A
Chris Hemsworth ... Thor
Natalie Portman ... Jane Foster
Tom Hiddleston ... Loki
Anthony Hopkins ... Odin
Christopher Eccleston ... Malekith
Faced with an ancient enemy that even Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must reunite with Jane Foster and reconnect with his estranged and imprisoned brother, Loki, to save all nine realms.

First off I will hold my hand up and say I am a huge Marvel movie fan and an even bigger Tom Hiddleston/Loki fan, but I LOVED it.

Free Ebook for All Hallows Read - In the Event of Death by Sophie Duncan and Natasha Duncan-Drake

Trick or Treat :)
Last year Soph and I created a book for All Hallows Read and this year we are continuing the tradition.

What is All Hallows Read I hear you ask? This is what their website says:
All Hallows’ Read is a Hallowe’en tradition. It’s simply that in the week of Hallowe’en, or on the night itself, you give someone a scary book.
It was started by Neil Gaimen and we think it is a wonderful idea. So Sophie and Tasha have each written a spooky short story and we have put them together in a book called In The Even of Death.

Last year we put the book on Amazon because we wanted as many people to see it as possible, but the restrictions of KDP Select (the only way to have a free book when we actually need it) were uncomfortable so this year we have put it on Smashwords and on our website for free download. The link below will take you to the main page for the book so you can choose where you would like to download it.

We very much hope you like the stories and would greatly appreciate it if you would tell your friends about the book. Many thanks.

by Sophie Duncan and Natasha Duncan-Drake

Four Drabbles for Halloween (Harry Potter, Avengers, Teen Wolf, Sherlock)

Here are 4 drabbles in 4 different fandoms for Halloween.

Title: Trolls
Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing: Harry/Draco
Rating: PG

No matter what, at Halloween, Harry always thinks of trolls. A troll is not something you forget and it was his first real memory of Halloween. Of course there are other recollections too, but that is the easiest one. Draco insists on throwing a huge party every year and ever since they got married everyone who is anyone turns up.

This year they even have a troll. Not a real one, but it is animated. It makes Harry smile and not think of other things and he rewards Draco with many kisses. When it chases Ron, Harry can't help laughing.

Title: Not Forgotten
Fandom: Marvel Movies
Rating: PG

Loki wrapped his cloak around himself and sunk into shadow. He was not sure why he had come to Midgard, only that he had followed a whim. Thor loved these mortal ants and Loki was curious.

The way they celebrated their feast of Halloween was almost charming.

He was watching a small vampire demand gifts when something caught his eye: golden horns. For a moment he was struck speechless, then he laughed. He was no longer forgotten, it seemed, as a small boy proudly announced he was Loki of Asgard, even if he was a monster instead of a god.

Title: The Real Thing
Fandom: Teen Wolf
Pairing: Sterek (if you squint)
Rating: PG

Real vampires on Halloween was just his luck. Oh and there was nothing romantic about being bitten; it hurt, a lot. Stiles had screamed as soon as teeth had met flesh, but there was no one to hear him. He was going to die and there was nothing he could do about it.

Being suddenly thrown forward was unexpected and jarring and all he could do was lie there in a dazed heap, listening to loud, vicious snarling.



The last thing he expected was Derek gently helping him up.

"I missed you," he said and gracelessly passed out.

Title: Not Dead Then
Fandom: Sherlock
Pairing: Sherlock/John
Rating: PG

John opened the front door and just stared.

"You're very solid for a ghost," was what he decided to say.

"You are the third person to make such a ridiculous statement," Sherlock replied; "what is it about Halloween that brings out the idiot in people?"

"Not dead then," John concluded and turned, leaving the door open behind him.

"You are not reacting how I calculated," Sherlock said, following him in.

"Shock," John replied, "I'll be very angry later. Would you like a cup of tea?"

"Yes," Sherlock replied. "Should I get you a blanket?"

That made John laugh; definitely Sherlock.
