    Summary

    Six years after the rebels of Celestial Mechanics turned the Lunar Gravity Well inside-out, and put an end to humanity's role in space, the new unified space program founded to understand and confront an actualized alien threat to Earth is long dead. Its three children now pick over its corpse for scraps. Each faction has a radically different vision of humanity's future in a world that no longer belongs to them, and each will fight to the last to ensure that their particular flavor of extra-terrestrial diplomacy is realized.

    It is the eve of humanity's second civil war in space, and three young women, brought together by circumstance, will come to shape the course of human history. Luna willing, they'll get into some hot-blooded mech fights and sloppy makeout sessions along the way.

    Actual play in-character logs based on Heaven Will Be Mine , post-Celestial Mechanics Ending. Powered by Fate Worlds: Volume Two - Worlds In Shadow (2013; Chapter 6; 'Camelot Trigger').

    Summary

    Inspired by/a continuation of Reach Heaven by Violence by mongoose_bite.

    After the Dragonborn, Rath, failed to kill Mercer Frey at Irkngthand, they engaged in a violent mutual pursuit, until Mercer set his sights on something else. Having acquired the ability to Shout, by means mysterious to Rath, Mercer began to fill the role of the Dragonborn. Apparently invincible and capable of far more than she'd imagined, Rath resolved to learn what was really going on with Mercer.

    Rath continues the chase. When Mercer issues a challenge to travel to High Hrothgar using only her mind, Rath begins to walk a road that will see reality crumbling around her. The world, it seems, is more flexible—and more breakable—than she'd thought possible.

    Summary

    The androids' attempt at a revolution has failed. Markus is dead. His killer, the RK800 unit known as Connor, returned to Cyberlife to be deactivated. The remaining deviants were splintered or killed in the raid on the abandoned freighter Jericho.
    For mankind, life is slowly returning to normal.

    Hank Anderson is not sure what he's still sticking around for.

    The RK900 model sent to replace Connor is seemingly a cold, unfeeling machine. Hank's been barred from continuing to investigate deviants. All that's left for him is the few unanswered questions he has about Connor's fate.

    But out of the blue, he receives contact from an unexpected source, one that will throw him into the middle of Cyberlife's dirty backlog and the lives of the remaining deviants left in Detroit.

    Summary

    It was a weekly ritual of theirs, show up at the end of each Monday, complain about their existences, before sympathizing, then planning out how they were going to survive what next week would bring.

    In short: it was a support group—as much as manga characters could be said to have one, at any rate.

    They never thought it would ever do much harm, until it threatened to erase them from existence

    Summary

    “A loop like Titan?” Tony’s sensors are instantly on alert, hand in the air. Looking at different timelines, future after future after future that would now never come to pass. Enough to break a man, or his mind, if Thanos and his minions didn’t. That much devastation and death. “Red alert?”

    “No,” says Strange in a distant tone, caught in some memory. “It’s me. Stuck on the wrong track.” He snaps out of it. “It threw me towards –” You.

    Summary

    His expression was bleak, but it wasn’t empty. His deep voice croaked when he spoke, from his own anguish. “Wandering around at night like this... it was prohibited in prison. Didn’t think I’d ever get the chance again.”

    Rantaro had a question that’s been on his mind for a while. He didn’t want to seem rude, but asked anyway. “Why’d you get arrested? I thought you said you destroyed a Mafia boss. Shouldn’t that be a commendable, if not heroic action?”
