Bad Moon Rising by joidianne4eva (Hansel/Ben; PG13; Romance, Supernatural)

What he hadn’t planned on was sticking around long enough to be captured after he managed to cut the creature’s head off. He definitely hadn’t planned to wake up chained in the very attic where he’d almost had his throat ripped out.

Worth Dying For by lyricaxxx (Robbie/James; PG13; Ghost Story, Near Death Experience)
Summary: Robbie sees it in slow motion, like a film slowed to half time, as he runs towards them. The two men struggling in a pool of twinkling white light. The man turning, his hand coming up, the shining object connecting with the side of James’s skull. James tilts, listing ridiculously, a tall, blond Leaning Tower of Pisa.
There’s a horrendous cracking sound. Rotten wood splintering.
James falls. Still in slow motion. He crashes through the cracked railing. Pieces of wood and his body cart-wheeling in the air. Falling fast as time speeds up again.
There’s a loud splash as James hits the water. Smaller splashes as pieces of the rail pepper the river.
Robbie doesn’t even try for the bridge. He cuts and heads straight for the river bank, kicking off shoes, dropping his scarf, yanking off his heavy overcoat as he runs. The moment his hand rips free of the coat, he launches himself through the overhanging trees into the river.
