    Summary

    "“To grow old is a gift” doesn’t apply here. That little proverb is for people, normal people. People who get to live full lives that aren't woven with a too short thread. Old age may be what takes him in the end, if a poorly timed fall or the cigarettes he plans to quit don’t get him first. And yet, it gives him no respite, since for him, at the rate he’s dying he won’t see the better side of forty-five.

    With the Patriots and their System gone, he has nothing really to distract himself anymore. No way to pretend his end isn’t hiding in the shadows around the corner, waiting. "

    David doesn't have an external purpose to fulfill, so for his last days on Earth he looks inwards for something to live for.

    Summary

    Summer 1722.

    Edward awakes to Stede's lips on his forehead, soft and barely there. "There you are," Stede says when he stirs. He pushes Edward's ever-greying hair behind his ear. "The clouds are upon us."

    There’s an ache in his left leg from the weather. Stede flexes his own wrist, a tell that he feels his bones ache, too. Edward reaches for the bad hand, gentle. Ever since Stede broke it from falling off a ladder, it’s never been quite right. Stede allows him to take it, to massage it, to kiss it better.

    And with perfect dramatic timing, the sky opens up above them.

    Summary

    You will grow to love her. And she, you. Give it time.

    In the sixteenth century, noble marriages were still being made in the attempt to strengthen the crown through political, and religious duty on a global scale. Couples were picked by the monarch; love was a perk, offspring a requirement, and neither a guarantee to fulfil either party’s happiness.

    Or,
    Against all odds, here’s what may have happened had Humphrey & Sophie learn to trust, understand, and even grow to love one another.

    Summary

    Decades after the traveler came and left Teyvat, all was well. Life has returned to normal, minus the large construct floating in the sky overlooking every inch of the land. The battle and the fall of Celestia marked a new page for the people of Teyvat and life resumed as per usual. The Archons themselves had resumed their more mundane life, living amongst the humans, no longer in need of their godly powers. And, all was well.

    Summary

    Remus has never been to a Barnes and Noble before which is honestly shocking with the number of books he reads, but today was a special day because Harry's son was born. Remus could hardly believe it. Remus is 45 and has a fucking Great-nephew. He still remembers when he was 16. He reminisced for a bit on his teenage years before remembering the errand Sirius had sent him on, to pick up some baby books for the baby. So that is how he finds himself walking into the books store on July 16 of 2005. That's how he finds himself faced to face with the book series about his family's life. When Remus saw the green book sitting on the new-release table he could hardly believe it. There in big bold letters read the words, "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince." Right below that was a picture of a boy holding a wand and had round glasses next to a man with a long beard. No... How could that be? Remus shook his head he was being silly. There are plenty of people named Harry and Potter is a very common last name. Still, Remus found himself approaching the books to further investigate. He felt like his jaw dropped to the floor.

     

    "Holy Fucking shit," Remus breathed.

    Summary

    Come meet the Lupins, one of the wizarding world's most fascinating families!

    In an AU in which Remus and Tonks survive the Battle of Hogwarts, how will they and their unusual young family find their place in the newly reconstructed wizarding world? This is the story of the Lupin family through the next generations, in which Remus and Tonks get a chance to be a family in a world without war, but not without prejudices and other obstacles.

    This story centers on the Lupins' marriage, their relationships with their children, and the challenges they all face following the Second Wizarding War. Told in alternating POVs between Remus and Tonks (with some guest POVs from their children!), this fic begins immediately after the Battle of Hogwarts and concludes decades later as the Lupin family grows and morphs over the years.

    Sequel to "Collide." Pre-reading not necessary but recommended.

    Update schedule: one chapter each Tuesday and Thursday.

    Summary

    The fundamentals of a successful football career should not include good grades. But for Jungkook’s terror, his school's stupid rules have determined he will not be allowed in the team if he doesn't improve his test results. Luckily there's someone a few desks away who has just the right mixture of knowledge and naivety that makes him a most valued resource for the students in need of saving a semester. Too bad that said resource, a.k.a Kim Taehyung, can't stand Jungkook. And the feeling is mutual.

    Summary

    The world says that creatures like him are something to be frightened and wary of.

    Monsters.

    Personally, Keith doesn't think he has much to fear from a man who compulsively straightens his friends' collars and blushes every time a woman calls him cute, undead creature of the underworld or no.

    基本上是京浮兩人的過去與未來發生的各種事,由於這兩位加起來至少至少接近兩千歲,所以時間跨度較大的時候會以[大約時間]或[重要事件前/後]標註
    實在久遠到無法以原著推算時間點的狀況會直接放棄治療寫上[非常久遠以前]
    提及部分小說補足的設定,會出現原創浮竹家成員以及偶而出現的京樂家僕人

    大致上是兩個已經和結婚了好幾世紀沒兩樣的超資深隊長的故事(雖然基本上不公開關係)
    以及他們年輕時的一些劇情,保證不虐
