    Summary

    In the land of Yggsdrasil, such things as spells, magic hammers, and rainbow bridges were everyday things. The Grandmaster of Sakaar was another matter.
    After fifty years of quiet, it was rumored that the Grandmaster was about to terrorize the country again. He had threatened King T'Challa's sister and had killed Wizard Stark, who had been sent to deal with her. So when a moving black castle, blowing dark smoke from its four thin turrets, appeared on the horizon, everyone thought it was the Grandmaster. The castle, however, belonged to Wizard Banner, who, it was said, likes to smash the hearts of men and women alike.

    Summary

    In the land of Ingary, where such things as seven-league boots and cloaks of invisibility really exist, being an only child is a combination of confusing and infuriating.

    Bakugou Katsuki was an only child and tended to see the situation as more infuriating than confusing.

    When his life is derailed by the Witch Uraraka and a curse from the Witch of the Waste, Katsuki finds that he has no idea what fate will bring him. Apparently, it has something to do with Uraraka.

     

    Basically, the Howl's Moving Castle AU that I haven't gotten out of my head!

    Summary

    “You can't just 'whip up’ a dimensional portal,” Raistlin says, both derision and frustration dripping from his voice.

    “Clearly I can,” Howl drawls with the same amount of derision, looking up at the other man. “I’m assuming you’re also a wizard since you have so many opinions, so maybe if you study some more you’ll be able to do it yourself someday.”

    Just beneath the black hood, the sneering twist of lips is visible. The voice, when it answers, is cold and quiet-- even quieter than usual. “You have no idea what I am. Or what lengths I'll go to in order to get information that I want.”

    “Are you threatening me?” Howl asks.

    You know those two separate 80s fantasy properties you love? Here are both, mashed together, with a dash of romance. You're welcome. (Aka a crossover idea that started as a joke and became its own beast.)

    Summary

    There was once a land where a boy named Michael Fisher spoke to a star as it fell due to a misunderstanding with his tutor - in that land, the star grew skittish with Sophie’s arrival, and Michael had someone with him who could talk life into things. The trouble was that this land was not that land.

    Summary

    Now that Howl has his heart back and it’s no longer in Calcifer’s possession, a demon arrives to steal it, seeing it as ‘up for grabs’. Howl, Sophie and the others try to keep the demon away, which proves to be more difficult than they thought. And for some reason, Sophie is showing signs of magic, even though she isn’t magical. When the reason is discovered, Howl must help Sophie control the magic until the problem is solved. And just what does the black portal lead to?

    (A slight crossover with the book. However, you don’t need to read the book in order to read this. Unless you actually read the book, you won’t even be able to tell I crossed over.)

    Adventure/Romance/Fantasy/Humor/Friendship/Supernatural/Family/Drama. Pairings: Howl and Sophie. Rated just in case, for minor violence.

    Summary

    She could do this, she was sure of it. After all, hadn’t she spoken another ten centuries of life into a fire demon? Hadn’t she put a man’s near-lifeless heart back into his chest and made it beat, through sheer will and determination? Nothing to a little bit of baking, then. As long as she didn’t talk to it—magic hats were one thing, but magic pastry struck her as something else entirely.

    Summary

    Ingary is in trouble (again), leaving Howl and Sophie no choice but to traverse worlds to ask for help from Chrestomanci, a powerful nine-lived enchanter.

    Post-canon for both series. Makes more sense if you've read both, but not strictly necessary.

    It’s the first night since Sophie’s curse has been lifted. When Howl is hit with the realisation that a young woman is sleeping under his roof, it’s only natural that he offer to share his bed. Who could object? Of course Sophie would, to Howl’s bewilderment. [One shot]
