    Summary

    Hopeful to ride out the throes of this grief, Jason flees to the wilderness with his beloved Braixen, only for another wounded man to fall against his breast. Meanwhile, she drags her nose over the scent still imprinted in the earth, lusting after the Lopunny who left that paw print behind.

    Summary

    When Kozume Kenma attended an imperial assembly, he did not expect to become a new minister. Likewise, when Kuroo Tetsurou intervened with an ambush, he did not expect to become a general. Neither of them expected to be anything more than fellow acquaintances.

    As a peasant, Kuroo’s presence brings unwanted attention from the all-noble court, but gratitude isn’t the only reason why Emperor Oikawa recruited him. Soon enough, Kenma is forced from his detached way of life and thrust into a deadly game of political strategy where he has to survive schemes, conspiracies, all while attempting to keep his feelings for his new general at bay.

    Summary

    Luke slumped against the bulkhead and closed his eyes. It was the easiest way to shut out his throbbing head, the ache in his wounded leg, and the flickering hints of someone not-quite-substantial from the corner of his vision. If he didn't try too hard, he could almost see Callista silhouetted against the blinking lights of the control panels on the far wall. Or imagine he did, at least.

    Soft wings brushed against his face, then faded as Vel crawled down his shoulder. Her proboscis tickled his collarbone as she lapped at the sweat-stained edges of his coveralls, which had flopped free in his last desperate scramble from the Sand People into the unlikely sanctuary of the Eye of Palpatine's gun room.

    "A moth daemon?"

    Summary

    Ambiguity... It is the reason why the mysteries that we least know about are among the most mysterious to us. Without knowing details about them, we could only guess. As they are too ambiguous to know for certain. Too ambiguous to know truths. Too ambiguous to know the full truths...

    Summary

    Tony’s always had a complicated relationship with his shifted form. Which, considering the general consensus on shifters is that your shift is the window to your soul, insinuates some uncomfortable things about how Tony views himself, but he chooses not to dwell on that for too long.

    It’s just that, well, his animal is not the most loved animal there is. Because Tony is a raven shifter.

    Raven, the animal that most people associate with bad luck, ill omens, and death.

    And after Afghanistan, things only get more complicated
