    Summary

    Jackson has spent the last 16 years running away. Everything he’s ever accomplished has felt like an accident which just feels ridiculous to him, because how do you become world famous by accident? How did he build himself a seven foot tall closet by mistake? If this was all coincidental, then why has he ignored everyone that ever cared about him?

    Except for his daughter. When she shows up, he knows he can’t ignore her.

    Summary

    Meeting in person was a big deal, but friends are just meant to be. The nerves seeing that other person for the first time are normal, right? The quickened heartbeat, the lingering looks? All just part of getting to know your best friend better.

    But it's never that simple

    Night terrors, a few misspoken words, a few pushed boundaries, and a fateful night in Vegas quickly throw what was an easy friendship into uncertain territory. And neither quite has the words to really convey how they might really feel . . .

    The format is going to be dual POV from both Dream and George's perspectives, there will be indicators for the changes in perspective so hopefully that won't be confusing.

    I wanted to learn to write romance, and I think these two have such a cute dynamic! I've written the entire fic already, so just have to edit/beta before posting chapters.

     

    Final note- the main reasons this fic is rated M is for language and the implied sexual content. It's pretty mild all around though, nothing graphic, but a healthy peppering of cussing. Cheers!

    Summary

    Humanity is still very young by the time a certain teenager stumbles into the Demon Realm. Without the help of her tribe, she'll need to rely on both her own abilities and the knowledge of a woman with an affinity for owls.

    Eda Clawthorne didn't expect anything out of the ordinary for the day. She was selling various bones and herbs that she'd acquired from the human realm when she heard a strangled cry from within her tent.

    Edit: Chapters 1, 2, and 3 have been rewritten!

    Summary

    Viola Potter était supposée devenir la Survivante, l'Elue, la parfaite représentante de la Lumière. L'ennui pour le monde sorcier anglais, c'est qu'un kitsune déteste faire ce qu'on lui ordonne, et elle se plait nettement plus à San Fransokyo.

    Forcément, il y a des répercussions. Même si ça prend du temps à celles-ci pour éclater au grand jour -- la génération suivante, en fait.

    Summary

    Perhaps, Edd reasoned, it was the almost reverent tone with which some kids said it: Kevin’s pack. It wasn't thrown around as a playful moniker but rather, loaded with a certain measure of respect. (Then there was the way Kevin said it, when he thought no one save his fellow comrades were within hearing vicinity. His pack.)

    Summary

    Immediately after the War of the Ring, Legolas lingers in Gondor to see Aragorn crowned. Unfortunately, as one of the only Elves to be seen in that country for several centuries, he is an object of intense curiosity among the people of Minas Tirith, an inconvenience his friends find endlessly amusing. He must also acclimate himself to all things Gondorian if he is to return and help King Elessar rebuild his war-torn kingdom. And there are some woefully inadequate historical documents he would see revised.

    Summary

    A girl dies and wakes to a sea of flame. A girl dies, but can never die again.

    Figures.

    The ships still burn at Losgar and the blood has not yet dried on the swords of the kinslayers when Mara O'Malley, aimless college graduate and recently dead person, finds herself thrust into the middle of the Flight of the Noldor at what can be generously described as a bad time. Whatever she thought she knew about Middle Earth is irrelevant faced with a world where the sun hasn't risen, Men won't wake for years, and this Enemy makes the flaming eyeball from the movies look like a sideshow.

    There's also the fact she can't seem to stay dead, no matter how hard she, or anyone else, tries.

    She'll get a lot of practice from here on out.

    Summary

    The Hylden have fallen. The Pillars of Nosgoth are no more. The Elder God is vanquished. Nosgoth's history has resettled, and the land itself is once again peaceful, fruitful, and alive.

    Raziel knows this has to have happened, because his memories are there, but so are the memories of his time as a wraith and his existence as the Soul Reaver. Nature abhors a paradox, but Raziel is not so easily compressed into a single, clean history. From here, he will have to figure it out, piece by piece, at his own pace.

    (First-person perspective Raziel navigates a resettled timeline as an "averaged" Raziel: part vampire, part human, part wraith, and entirely too tired to go on quests. Until then, he can sleep in the village hayloft with the cats and think about his circumstances a bit.)

    Summary

    Claude attracts a very specific kind of crowd.

    Claude wouldn't call himself an animal lover. He likes animals, sure. Only a monster could look at a kitten or puppy and not feel something. He's human, just like everyone else. Animals, on the other hand, seem to unanimously love him. They sense his carefully hidden soft heart, he's sure of it. It's the only explanation. They capitalize on his weakness and extort him for all he's worth. He folds like a house of cards every time a kitten so much as looks at him. Behind closed doors, he doesn't mind too much. Maybe he even goes so far as to enjoy the companionship. But he's aware no one will take him seriously if his little weakness comes to light. It's his greatest (mundane) secret.

    Unfortunately, he doesn't have enough blackmail material to silence the entirety of the Golden Deer when they find out.

    Aka Disney Princess!Claude

    Summary

    Once Ron comes home from Korea, he and Carwood decide to take the big step and buy a house together. It all feels perfect: They have finally plenty of time alone, they have an entire house of their own to furnish and make their own, and the stores are bursting with new products from new food products to various electrical appliances.

    It should all be smooth sailing into the dream life they have earned, but they are both ultimately unprepared for what has is happening in Washington, and how close the new policies to weed out the lavender menace can come.
