    Summary

    Connor stands there in the snowfall and thinks of Gavin Reed, a man it had met only twice and with varying levels of antagonism, but had lived through a lifetime with. It thinks of his strength of spirit, his perseverance, his fortitude. And it wonders what it might be like, being loved by him. If his capacity for love is great enough to carve a path through the cold, plastic casing of an android.

    Connor stands there in the snowfall and it wonders if Gavin would even care enough to try.

     

    (Or, an alternate universe fic where soulbonds are real, memory-sharing can happen at any moment, and a certain android sent by CyberLife is about to be in for a rude awakening concerning those first two points.)

    Summary

    Reigen has been lumbered with a huge crush on Serizawa (who is surely about to move onto better things). It would be great if that was the extent of his problems, but now he suddenly has a toddler aged Mob on his hands and a whole gang of teenagers trying to 'help' him. And maybe the Sun Psychic Union has put out a hit on him?
    (or Reigen thinks he has his life together but he kind of really doesn't, but maybe he will by the time this is all over) (rated for later chapters)

    Summary

    On a warm July night in 1994, Charlie Weasley's former classmate arrives at The Burrow through a blood-soaked tear in space, pulling Frank and Alice Longbottom along with him. Aaron was supposed to be dead, and no one knows where he has been, what condition his mind is in . . . or where his loyalties lie, especially after a series of terrorist attacks that have the signatures of the Death Eaters, and Aaron, all over them.

    When Aaron is brought into the wizarding world in 1984 to attend Hogwarts, he can't even use magic. Someone made a mistake, or so he thinks. Worse, when the headmaster isn't missing, he is drunk, disturbed, and violent; someone is killing muggle-borns and leaving them strung up like marionettes; and the depleted Aurors are out of options. It's only a matter of time before Charlie, Aaron, and the rest of their classmates are involved.

    This story is a prequel to the HP series, starting seven years before HP and the Philosopher's Stone and spanning about ten years. It will eventually weave into the events of the HP series, though the focus will be on the characters and the world operating in the background. The characters you know belong to JKR, and those you don't are mine.

    Summary

    What happens when “the one that got away” suddenly comes back into your life? Riley Nevin is living in New York and working as a waitress when the first man to ever break her heart walks through the door of her bar. Seeing him again is too painful and learning all of the half-truths he ever told her makes it worse. Circumstances allow her to hide who she really is, but will she be able to keep up the ruse when she is swept off to Cordonia to compete for the hand of a prince...who just so happens to be the best friend of “the one that got away”. Finding love gets complicated when secrets are in the mix and a friendship could hang in the balance.

    Canon meets AU - MC is Riley Nevin from my “Not Quite Cinderella” series but with this twist, it will diverge a lot from Canon.

    Summary

    It was difficult to imagine Princess Ursa, a woman who moved with gentleness and grace, whose soft, shy smile lit up like a pearl under the moon, who delighted in a simple theatre play, doing anything as unseemly as murder. She sat poised and prim, offering him a sweet jasmine tea with a steady hand that had long since been washed any trace of blood.

    'It is wonderful to see you again, Iroh. I would love to catch up.'

    Twelve Imperial Firebenders guard the entrances to her quarters. They are comfortable, full of plush furnishings. It doesn't look like a prison cell.

    ———

    Ursa took not one but two lives that night. Or, she had tried to. Ozai's life dangled on a thread that she had not pulled tightly enough. A fatal misstep.

    (A retelling of Princess Ursa's story).

    Summary

    The tale of the great pirate Blackbeard has been told throughout the Seven Seas. But what of her origins, her humble beginnings?

    Once, she was Akahana, daughter the daimyo Isamu, and apart of the Mao clan, a legacy of warriors and heroes. Yet, unlike her brother Twig, she was not to be a hero. Rather, as a herald of the next generation, a simple wife. But Akahana had other plans, and one day, she left her country and ventured to far, distant lands, where both men and women alike could achieve greatness; the frozen Svellands.

    But war had been devouring the Svellands, and Akahana was now caught in the middle. However, despite the danger, Akahana had a chance to earn her glory and be recognized as a hero. Even so, this was no black and white tale. Secrets and hidden truths lurked at every corner, and the war was never as it seemed. Read on, and uncover the legend of Blackbeard.

    (I don't own Great Great Aunt Blackbeard. I own my ocs Asmund, Kanin, Sköll, Hati, Ryota, Takahiro, Bjorn, Bjarke, and the Marauder King.)

    Summary

    my initial goals for this piece were to make it somewhat canon-compliant, explain why Vega and Shepard feel like they have this close bond before ME3 begins, try to make the story funny and suspenseful and real-feeling, and MAYBE give James Vega the happy ending i came to feel he deserved in ME3 (but never really had a chance at) (i'm looking at you, developers).

    now that i'm done with the first installment, i feel like i maybe succeeded 80%? not sure how close to canon i remained. i might be the only person who finds a lot of this story hilarious. perhaps the suspense angle falls flat. however, for those of you who enjoyed it, i'll see you in the first installment of The Hallway, where we shift back to Shepard's POV. dunno when i'll start posting again; it will probably depend on when inspiration strikes.
