    A story of what would happen if Albus Dumbledore and Voldemort's plans fail... Well at least most of them, and as an added bonus Harry has a twin sister.

    Summary

    He regards you with a cool nonchalance, eyes dancing across your form, before returning to the chess board. All his inhibitions slip away, and his eyes glaze over, like a solider about to take his shot. He moves his pawn, and it begins. And you cannot fight the sinking feeling that you've already lost. At the game, and at him.

    _______

    Alternatively; in which you and Soviet chess champion Grandmaster Levi Ackerman find yourself playing more games than one.

    Summary

    When her mother deliberately crashes their car, it ends Beth’s life as she knows it and strands her at Methuen Home. She has yet to learn of the chain of events this will set in motion. The one that will start with her introduction to the world of chess, give her a new mother, and take her far beyond the borders of Lexington.

    As she works her way towards the very centre of that world, she meets numerous other people along the way. But among weak opponents, friendships, rivalries, and hardships there is one person who sticks out from among them all. Vasily Borgov, the intimidating World Champion from the Soviet Union with a face that is much harder to read than the sixty-four squares he rules over, catches her eyes from the start and she finds it impossible to look away.

    Or, we follow Beth through canon and into the years beyond as she struggles with finding her place in the world, creating bonds with others, and substance abuse, but also finds the good things in life, such as success, friendship, and love.

    Summary

    As they began climbing the stairs, Max glanced behind her, slipping the Walkman back on. Leaving it set to the radio, she found a spot between stations filled with nothing but static—and listened.

    Can’t wait for Season Four? Me either!

    Join the Party—both in Hawkins and California—for a theoretical take on their next chapter.
    I will try to update once or twice a week at least until Season Four Vol One comes out. Then we’ll see…
    Even though I’ve taken inspiration from the trailer and fan theories, as well as some of my own speculation. I have nothing to do with The Duffer Brothers or their creations.

    Summary

    “Listen,” he started, and his voice lost the edge that it had carried moments ago, “I can slay the beasts. I can best the cold, and I can quench the hunger,” he pulled his torso to slightly lean over his outstretched legs, and looked solemnly into his lap, “But . . . I can’t fight the loneliness.“

    The solitude of the Constant finally breaks Wilson, and there’s only one person he’s able to talk to.

    Or: Jisung thinks his life is finally going great. He has wonderful friends, a job he enjoys and a home to feel safe in.

    Too bad it's all a lie.

    Summary

    The storm had finally come, and the supernova turned red. Gellert becomes an auror and while his husband plays political chess, he has to solve a few problems on the way to a happy ending.
    Features: a lot of angst, a chupacabra, a phoenix, Gellert being a simp for Albus, Albus being a badass, and a hint of fluff. You know the drill.

    THIS IS PART TWO OF THE SUPERNOVA SERIES (can be read as a standalone, but I recommend reading White Supernova first–some plot points will be continued here).
    Updates on Sunday and Wednesday.

    Summary

    Mordin and Shepard forge a strange friendship over late-night talks, chess, and language - which in turn leads them to explore culture, philosophy, and even conspiracy, over time. (An increasingly canon-divergent take on Mass Effect 2 and 3, inspired heavily by linguistics, a more realistic take on trauma, identity, and closer friendships. Also features multiple created languages.)

    First chapter is a table of contents. (Note: mature-content warning is for violence. No sexual content.)

    Summary

    Chess is a game of strategy, tactics, cunning, and sacrifice; full of terminology and hypotheticals.

    Marcy is going to tell Anne all about it, and by Frog is she going to listen.

    In other words, the author is going through a chess phase and wanted to write about it and it’s symbolism.

    Summary

    based on the prompt from Write-it-Motherfuckers on tumblr

    You’ve dreamt of him for months now. Every time you manage to push past the insomnia and go to bed, you dream of him. He feels so real to you, though you know its only a dream, that such a man could never really exist. You’ve noticed his deathly pallor, the glimpses of fangs and teeth that shift and change, so glaringly inhuman each time. You’ve noticed his long fingers tipped in claw like nails, moments where the shadows surrounding him seem to writhe, bubble and hiss, and you’ve stared willingly and endlessly into the deep unnatural hellfire within his eyes. You see all of this, but it is still he himself that confirms it. A vampire, he tells you solemnly, a monster. Despite his admission, you still find yourself inexplicably drawn to him....
