    Summary

    Shang Qinghua goes to take a self-indulgent peek at his baby protagonist son and gets a kick to the shrivelled heart for his troubles. He gave up on changing the story years ago! Yet he finds himself helping his protagonist son's adoptive mother anyway. Just this one change won't matter too much, right?

    One little change leads to more. Shang Qinghua never meant to care, but he becomes invested in making sure that his new family survives the looming plot. With the changes to the world cascading around him, with his position as a traitor pulling him between his sect and a certain ice demon, and with the protagonist growing up so quickly, how is one displaced author meant to ensure that everything turns out all right?

    A Pre-Canon to Canon Divergence story.

    Summary

    Kingdoms rise and fall for the want of a nail. Uchiha Madara desperately wants Konoha to be part of his World Omelet of Peace – and has to crack a few eggs to make it, like a six year old nail named Inuzuka Tsume. Shimura Danzo doesn’t want a kingdom of his own – he wants the village for which he sacrifices everything to thrive. Tsume just wants to be wanted, and finds herself collecting a kingdom of strays, from a newborn Kakashi abandoned at birth by his mother, to a naked 3 year old Naruto seeking refuge in Tsume’s dog kennels in the dead of winter, and a cranky old man named Danzo.

    (Madara started it. Tsume regrets nothing, even if her taste is questionable. Danzo regrets himself into becoming a decent human being. Well, somewhat decent.)

    Summary

    Starscream's home on Sol-3 was modestly sized, by Cybertronian standards—it definitely couldn’t support Skyfire transforming—but the humans had built it some four thousand years ago, and it had probably seemed titanic to those little things, especially at that time in their development.


    Optimus Prime visits, which is very unexpected, because Skyfire and Starscream didn't know he was, you know, on earth.

    Summary

    ‘It’s a lovely morning in the village, and you are a horrible goose.’

    Well, not exactly, but Chihiro is certainly someone’s goose in someone’s village, and they never cared overly much for little things like Isekai people respecting the consistency and integrity of the known timeline. Which, of course, meant they immediately stuck their gremlin hands right into the center of everything as soon as they shared the same world as Touya and Tenko, because why not?

    Summary

    Side-story to YuyaVision

    Jack Atlas can't honestly believe that Yusei Fudo would somehow end up as the savior of the Synchro Dimension. The last time they met, Yusei sank into the waters of the Commons, never to be seen again.

    But Yusei has been reborn on a mission, to protect the Synchro Dimension from the machinations of Leo Akaba, the Fusion Dimension and from themselves. To help bring about the resurrection of Lord Zarc and usher in paradise.

    Jack knows that he needs evidence, so he decides to see the story in full, and hopefully figure out a way to stop Yliaster and undo the damage they've done to Neo-Domino.

    If only he knew that too much TV was bad for him...
    -----
    A slow-burn LGBTQ romance within the halls of Yliaster starring a crabhead, a reaper and an android as they prepare the Neo-Domino for the return of the Supreme King and the formation of paradise.
