    Summary

    Timelines are supposed to become doomed when a loop can't be closed properly. They can't feed into themselves, so they die and are eventually consumed by the horrorterrors. Davesprite can't let that happen again.

    So when the timeline becomes doomed due to his actions, he undertakes the responsibility to find a way to close the loop and get back on track, with a little help from the Maid of Time.

    John Egbert is unsure of his(?) entire identity. Vriska had given him some girl clothes to use for a prank against someone else (at least, he thinks), so why does he like wearing them so much?

    Tavros needs to be brave for once. With help from a mysterious human named "June" that had contacted him, as well as help from a romance-obsessed catgirl, he finally feels confident to stand up to Vriska when he couldn't before.

    Summary

    "The Endless," spoke her brother in his white suit, fingers running through his white hair, "aren't real, Persephone. They never were. It's a story, a myth. Like the idea of Chronos and Nyx in Greek myth. We know the Olympians and the Titans and all that exist, in a way. Paradise Island, after all, says that much. The Endless are just a just-so story."

    "No," Death said, as she held up her hands. "I know they're real."

    Daniel Hall shook his head. "Persephone, you've had this belief for a long time." His stare was a hooded one. "None of it is real. You do have your powers, but after the scenes in Metropolis I'd think that would reinforce what you really need."

    He leaned forward slightly and for a moment she caught a faint glimpse of white hair that seemed blond in the right angle and a horridly familiar smile.

    "That's one thing that's good about this city. They're good with metahuman patients. They'll teach you that control."

    Summary

    When an impoverished artist who likes writing fanfiction gets the attention of the Chaos God Tzeentch, she is pulled into the Warhammer 40k universe. She embarks on a quest with her new friends to discover the secrets of the Warp itself so that she may return home. A grimdark take on the Wizard of Oz with a twist of black humor. An epic "weak to strong" tale as a possible new God-Empress of Mankind navigates her uncertain future in a frightening new reality.

    This is primarily a Warhammer 40k fic embellished with bits of Oz lore. Knowledge of the Wizard of Oz and other Oz-related lore is not required to enjoy this story, but it certainly makes it fun. I try to gently introduce Warhammer 40k lore as I go along for anyone who isn't very familiar with that universe, and is here because of the Oz tags.

    Usually updates at least once a week (with an occasional week off), typically on Friday/Saturday. Sometimes, I update more frequently.

    Summary

    Set just prior to the events of Ocarina of Time, this fiction serves to reveal the back-story of Telma: a significant supporting character in the War of Imprisonment series, and to reveal hidden clues about the Gerudo themselves; in this time period.

    It is a very sad story: How a little girl is cast off from her tribe in a desperate attempt by her mother to save her life. She struggles in the unknown world of the Hylians against suspicion, bigotry, and shame. But in the end, she may find happiness in her adopted home.

    Fan creation, back-lore supporting The War of Imprisonment Series.

    Summary

    They named him Creth’kar - or, in a long-lost Cthonian dialect - the 'Stolen Son.' Deprived of heritage and memory, his path to becoming an Astartes of the Black Legion is fraught with pain, strife and the absence of something he eternally yearns for, yet cannot find. This is his story, his sworn testament - and possibly his salvation.

    ['The Stolen Son' takes place both before and after the events in 'Choices: A Black Legion Monologue']

    Summary

    "Today, the world ends again. This is not the grand and cataclysmic death that stories and song can only dream of describing in all its awesome detail. This is not the shattering of the ways of life the planet Tilan and her people had come to know. This is not the catastrophic coming of the Gloom, which devastated the globe and enforced its cruel design upon her inhabitants some thousand years ago. This is a personal and quiet end, a world of one collapsing in a tragic spiral of self-destruction."

    Welcome to Etalyr, a grand continent in the world of Tilan. Etalyr is home to much trouble and turmoil, suffering and strife. But it is also home to heroes, noble souls willing to sacrifice everything make their world a better place for those they leave behind. The world, a mixture of high fantasy and dieselpunk influences, is as much a villainous force against these heroes as those who live within it. There are many who seek to make the best of the bad without concern for the fate of those around them. And there are those who delight in causing suffering to others. Danger lurks around every corner, as the invisible fog of the gloom weighs down upon everyone with equal measure.
