    Summary

    Power, Corruption & Lies: "Post hoc, ergo propter hoc". The priori; with the bad moon rising at the horizon, beyond the heavy and mysterious sea of Mist, no blood is thicker than the ink belonging to a collection of stories, tails, vignettes, thoughts, reckonings, short poems of a world who revolves around the tip of the spear, gray alike the clouds that lightened and obscured of their own history.

    Laughing Stock: "If faith is what driven us together in search of ourselves, then we must try to do it on a leap". The posteriori; from the idyll to the youth to the decay of substance, life goes on and on in this real life fantasy, alike the path taken by the Crescent and her ancestors, who once shared of same blood ingrained on that red coat. While her youth dreams are kept alive, only the fear, the failure and the spear can block the way to achieve a purpose in a life under the rain.

    Summary

    He is chewing the minty flavor of his story, making bubbles of sorbitol and gum base… He choked. Eating was hard. Breathing was hard. Living was hardest.

    The lies keep rolling off his tongue with ease.
    Eating according to hunger, eating what you crave, stopping when you're full, one cookie, two. "Why?"

    Spitting food daintily into napkins, folding it under the table, hiding the unsafe bites of food in plastic wrap for later, grocery hauls full of pastries, sweets, bread. An attempt to fill a void by filling the mouth. Endless hours with the numb stupor of food and vomit.
    "Why not?”
    His sense of worth entirely contingent upon the ability to starve or purge.

    He has expired.

    Summary

    We all know the diary soul fragment of the heir of Slytherin, but what if Tom Marvolo Riddle's path lead him elsewhere a year before his first Horcrux? If his circumstances could not have tempted him into Machiavellism, if he had found roots in friendship and the thing people call love? (Hogwarts, from 1943)

    Summary

    Katsuki's always thought Quirks were dumb. People got hyped up over shit that went down every day of their miserable lives, what the fuck were they so excited about? Well, it probably helped that they could actually interact with Quirks. That was Katsuki's Quirk, Quirk Immunity. Quirks didn't work on him, but as a side effect, Quirks (basically) didn't exist. There was no way for him to see, hear, touch, taste, or smell anything Quirk-related (mutation Quirks, transformation Quirks, Quirk-made items, etc.), Sometimes, Katsuki can't help but empathize with the people in the Middle Ages and magic. You knew something was amiss, but you couldn't interact with whatever whacky things were going on. God, and it didn't help that Izuku got all excited over the most random things. Oh yeah, and somehow, Katsuki accidentally got involved (read: became friends) with the dumbass heroes-in-training, and their shitty archenemies, the League of Villains.

    Summary

    "It seemed to be a fact of their nature at this point. Grantaire was snide. Enjolras was angry. Joly was worried. And it seemed that everyone was always shouting. But it was comfortable and familiar, and felt almost like a strange sort of home."

    In which, Grantaire develops Tuberculosis and must come to terms with what he hasn't been able to face and has been eating away at him for so long. Time is no longer on his side, and there is so much left to be said.

    I'm not great with descriptions, but if you're looking for something with a literary vibe and a side of rose-tinted tragedy, you've come to the right place.

    Summary

    Roman tries to be upbeat and hopeful despite all the shit that’s happened to him. And a lot of shit has. These days, the bar is so low that all he's really looking for is his brother back and a good night's sleep. His luck hasn't been that great, though. But his new foster home is with two literal rays of sunshine (and a sarcastic asshole). How is Roman going to keep pretending he's okay when years of baggage catch up to him?

    Summary

    He believed them and their sacrilege until he didn't. Whispers of rumination, of void and stars, hanging in balance, of something holy and higher and of heaven - and he believed. Maybe that's the worst thing of all.

    But he found the dragon, and he fought the dragon, and he befriended the dragon. The story is his to shape, and he's not a hero, but the villain is a role few can claim, anyways.

    And this story doesn't have an End, not yet. This is only the beginning.

    -

    Or: Dream somehow manages to steal an ender dragon, rides her off into the sunset, and maybe-accidentally commits a few crimes along the way. It's so not his fault that his face is so damn wantable.

    Now, won't these bounty hunters just leave him alone?

    “Every step of the Exalted Council, Evelyn kept the same mantra in her head. Just a little further. It was a lie, but one she clung to. Take everything in steps. Survive this minute, then survive the next.”
