    Summary

    A few days afterwards, I worked with Lyra at the archery range, loosing arrows at the targets known as “butts.” I still enjoyed her hands on my waist as she adjusted my stance. I had become much better at hitting the targets. I could not yet match the speed of the young archer I had captured soon after my arrival on this planet, but the act of taking an arrow from its quiver and fitting the indentation on its end, known as a “nock,” over the bowstring, an action known as “nocking,” had become very fluid.

    “There are actually,” Lyra told me, “ignorant fools who call it ‘notching.’ Should you meet any, shoot them with arrows.”

    “I shall do so.”

    “No, don’t really shoot them. I was jesting.”

    “This world’s breeding pool would be improved, would it not?”

    She sighed.

    “I must remember not to encourage you to kill people.”

    ---

    John Carter and Dejah Thoris of the Burroughs novels are mis-directed to the world of Game of Thrones, fulfilling two separate prophecies. Carter is a Confederate officer; his ideas might be considered unenlightened. Dejah is very good at killing people, but she feels bad about it.

    Summary

    The second prequel of two to “Seize the Deity” (for the first prequel, please see "Zelda Invictus" at https://archiveofourown.org/works/24228373/chapters/58374028 ). This being only a prequel, you might find "Seize the Deity" a more well-rounded work.

    The world was over. What do you do when that happens, and you find yourself on a deserted tropical island? Your prospects are bleak – no matter how pleasant the surroundings – when it all boils down to a universal variant of thermodynamics and poker: you can't go home, you can't start again, and you're functionally immortal.

    Prior military life had prepared Sonic for just about everything. It hadn't prepared him for nothing, and there was a lot of nothing in this quiet place. At least until a Deku Scrub came into his life and forced him to face the world again. To face himself again.

    His nemesis was still out there, somewhere. It could only be a matter of time before this world, too, met its end.

    Summary

    First awareness was the urge to cough; second that of bright light; third that wherever the pirates had dumped him he was in unfamiliar land with unknown predators and variables. The jungle grew to the sky, starting with a very few shorter shrubs on the sandy knoll he lay on. Exerting great effort, he hauled himself upright and saw what he had suspected to be: they had dumped him on the beach, just above the tideline, with nothing to his name and no indication of where he was or how long he’d been there.

    Summary

    "You wished for the deaths of Arya Stark, Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow when we viewed the 'Game of Thrones' program from Jasoom. Do not deny what you know to be true. This story fulfills your wishes. You are your own Mary Sue, Dejah Thoris."

    "I am not!" I said, petulantly slapping my hand on the table before me. "Many people of both planets will have wished for the death of Jon Snow. He is portrayed by a stone-faced actor who can say no more than 'Yarmuh kweeeen,' whatever in the name of Iss that might mean. The acrobatic skills of Arya Stark are not believable, such are not taught to assassins. It is she who is the Mary Sue, not I."

    Summary

    The sun crested the distant cliffs across the vast expanse of sand and dirt in front of them, and in a blink the purple of the Barsoomian night was chased away by brilliant daggers of sunlight. Dejah whooped and shouted “It is three days’ ride— follow me!”

    John Carter does not know much about Barsoom, Tharks, Helium or the struggles of red men. During the three days' ride to the river Iss, and then Helium, he learns.

    Or: John Carter's Crash Course in Socio-Politic Relations Between Barsoom's Major Sentient Races: A Gonzo Ethnography.

    Summary

    The Koba warned the Porters of the ghost in the trees the day they arrived in the village. Jane and her father had spent three long weeks at sea, sailing first to France, then on to Africa and the Port of Boma, then three long days on the river to the Koba territory bordering on the jungle, listening by day to the raucous chorus of jungle birds and by night to the screams of hidden predators. Jane was ten, and tired, and overwhelmed by the hugeness of her new country, and more than inclined to believe what the villagers had to say.

    Summary

    I finished reading LXG Volume 6: The Tempest a few weeks ago, and I was immensely disappointed. The story was shit, the characters were flat, and the whole thing was just a real crappy way to end a saga.

    So, I have decided to write my own ending. With blackjack and hookers! In fact, forget the blackjack!

    Starting with the revelation of the Antichrist's identity, I'm putting my own spin on how LXG should have ended out, and hopefully do it with the same creative storytelling spirit that the series started out with.

    Summary

    Bucky Barnes survived the the American Civil War but never left the battlefield behind. He joined Hydra, a mercenary group, and for the last few years, he's done a lot of terrible things. On a mission, he gets lost in the Wakandan jungle and comes across a man he believes to be the victim of some terrible crime.

     

    There were scars all over this man’s body, some of which seemed like leopard scratches and even what may have been old bullet wounds. His hair was wild and filthy, cascading over his shoulders. Really, the man was quite filthy in general. Some spots, though, Bucky was sure were massive bruises instead of dirt, and they reminded Bucky of the photographs of gorilla attack survivors.
    Gorilla attacks. Leopard scratches. Bullet wounds.
    “Oh God,” Bucky gasped. “Y-you’re him... You’re the Ape-Man! They... they were right..!”
