    Summary

    For Stormpilot Week 2018: Historical AU.

    Finn and Poe are Army Aviation reservists, thrown together as buddies for annual training (AT) exercises- the "two weeks in the summer" that the recruiting ads mention. This takes place circa 1998. That's only 20 years ago, but I'm calling it a historical AU because I think it is proper and correct to think of DADT as a historical era.

    Summary

    There’s something unnerving about Tom Riddle.

    Hermione’s never quite been able to articulate just what it is about him that unsettles her so: after all, Riddle’s popular and charming and adored by Hogwarts staff and students alike. Still, she’d swear that there’s something lurking beneath that warmly polite veneer of his, something that lies in wait like a serpent in the dark.

    But it’s not until her sixth year at Hogwarts, when she rashly confronts him over an unprecedented act of violence, that the full force of Riddle’s chilling regard is abruptly and wholly turned on her.

    Summary

    There is Dave with teenage angst; there's Vera with her sense of justice; there's Chuck with his love for all things Disney. Then there is Martha, a dog who is often mistaken for a rug; there are Pyramus and Thisbe, two fat, old cats, who resemble pillows more than actual, living beings.

    And then there are John and Paul, who somehow manage to keep the chaos at bay.

    Aka that modern au where Paul and John are an old married couple, have kids, and live chaotic, good life. No plot - just boring, perfect everyday life on Thomas Lane, Liverpool.

    Summary

    (Hiraeth (Welsh) – a homesickness for a home to which you cannot return, a home which maybe never was; the nostalgia, the yearning, the grief for lost places of your past.)

    The Yugoslav Wars of the 1990s: welcome to hell.

    As Rey grows up in a country which officially isn't at war, even though its consequences are felt everywhere, she forms a strong bond with Kylo, an odd young man whose personal involvement in the conflict may run deeper than it seems. Years go by, the war rages on and the political plots thicken, and Rey must learn the difference between idealism and doing the right thing, discovering the price of personal happiness.

    Also known as "what happens when you take the Star Wars plot and put it in a real place, in a real time, in a real war." Comes with lots of swearing, awkward flirting, old characters in new roles, angst, feels, drama, fluff, all-round Slavic shenanigans, and references to some pretty cool music.

    Summary

    They didn't have much, if anything, in common. It's 1998 and Dean Winchester just started junior year at probably his twentieth school. He'd like to think of himself as the outsider; but, to the nerdy sophomore Castiel Novak, he's just another of the popular kids. That is, until he isn't. What he truly IS, remains unclear to Castiel as the two pave the way to an unlikely friendship. Dean's only hiding one important detail: he's already fallen head over heels for his sweet angel, Cas. Things aren't as easy as they seem, though. Dean has no idea of the not-so-dusty skeletons hiding in his angel's closet. Meanwhile, Castiel is in the dark about the things that go bump in the night and the world that Dean has always been part of. With so much to hide, is there hope of a foundation of love from something that was doomed from the beginning?

    Summary

    "So what's the real plan here? Got some highly questionable spells stuffed in that rucksack of yours?" Louis narrows his eyes. "Killing curses?" he gasps, making a show of shifting backwards away from Harry, clutching his knees closer to his chest, back pushed against the van's door.

    Harry huffs, rolling his eyes. "This isn't some book you've read, alright? But, uh... sort of."

    "Oh, great! I've got a real-life witch in me van who's armed with dangerous magic and on the run from other dangerous witches who want to curse your backside. Terrific!"

    "Don't forget the helping me find my aunt part," Harry adds, "or I've screwed up my whole family's lives all by bloody nosing around where I wasn't supposed to." He shuts his eyes, whimpering as he cradles his bandaged hand. 

    "Right. Real lives are at stake. Even better." 

    Or: a late 90's urban fantasy AU in which Louis wants to befriend the strange boy next door, Harry is just trying to keep his family together, and falling in love is most inconvenient for a witch that may have accidentally reignited a centuries old curseꟷone that kinda messes with that.

    Summary

    In which Hitoshi Shinsou takes a part-time job as a driver for a dodgy shipping company, and maybe finds himself along the way.

     

    Hitoshi is a failing student in dire need of cash. Dire enough to look past the fact that his new employer naps in a sleeping bag under his desk, and that the clients are, let's say... special.
    A nineties' AU urban fantasy series in which Shinsou finally gets to be the hero we all know he is.

     

    This fic is episodic. Every chapter is its own little arc.
