    Summary

    You can't feel true guilt. Not in a striking way in which you realise it... it usually wins in a numb, hollow way, remaining unnamed as it decays inside.

    AKA: a fairly glum 'character study' on England in which I explored a version of England far more active in the dark activity of his kingdoms, Empire, and government.

    Summary

    A ragbag of little vignettes, some ridiculously serious or blasphemous, sweet or smutty, but all are wrote four hands with no other link between themselves than being a tribute to Erik and Charles, those men in love, whom Marcel Proust would have called in another place and another time, Charlistes. (That's a codename for gay men in Proust's Remembrance of Things Past, which is a pretty coincidence if we think of it, isn't it?)

    Summary

    Just as the connection between Dazai and Atsushi deepens, a mysterious group appears with the capability to steal and clone special abilities. Atsushi's "Beast Beneath the Moonlight" remains the most coveted power and becomes the target of this group. After a failed mission, Atsushi becomes captive for two weeks before Dazai and the others find him. As the narrator, Dazai copes with the loneliness in falling in love while unraveling the chilling mystery of this case, leading the Armed Detective Agency far from Yokohama to a remote island in the Pacific where "Beast Beneath the Moonlight" powers the manufacturing of monsters and abilities alike. On the island, Dazai and the others are met with horrors much greater than they could have ever imagined.

    *This is heavily inspired by a "No Longer Human" by Osamu Dazai. It's an attempt at recreating the tone and voice of Osamu Dazai's narrator, along with other motifs. In general, I packed this fic full of all literary reference from a number of novels and poems. Aside from NLH, "The Island of Dr. Moreau" by HG Wells also majorly inspired this piece.

    Summary

    "I swear, I'll catch my death following you."

    "Then why follow me?"

    This is a sequel work to the events in Little Witch Academia, except instead of centering around everyone's favorite accident-prone witch, it centers around everyone's favorite handsome viscount: Andrew Hanbridge. This is a tale of honor, friendship, and love. Through high school, college, and beyond, we follow our dear Andrew through all of his adventures. Andrew is my muse and quite possibly the love of my life, and this fanfiction is dedicated to him and to everyone else who loves him.
    Nota Bene: This fanfiction is riddled with references to other things. If you spot one that you know, you win points. The points are utterly worthless, but you get the joy of participating.

    Summary

    A Cheshire smile crept my mouth. “Well, I intend to play the game, of course—until I hear the word checkmate.”

    Sebastian chuckled and kneeled, raising my hand to his curved lips. “In that case, I shall be your pawn and knight. So then . . .” His voice dropped to a silken whisper. "Move me into place.”

    When girls from Lizzie's academy begin vanishing without a trace, the Queen's guard dog delves into the case with Sebastian. There, the duo find strange ciphers left at the scenes of the disappearances. However, it soon becomes clear this is no ordinary kidnapping scheme when Sebastian uncovers a clue from Cielle's past. To complicate matters, as the pair investigates in tandem, the essence of Cielle's soul starts to change. A change that, for the first time ever, tests Sebastian's impeccable aesthetics—and restraint. P O D F I C Here ^^

    (The last few chapters contain some of the smuttiest smut I've ever written, ever. EVER. This story was neverr supposed to be this way, but #2020 so OH wellss..)

    Summary

    “It’s just not the same. I just… I’m so depressed, Soobin. You know, I looked forward to dying. It was what kept me going, really. Knowing that one day I could sleep forever, a deep peaceful sleep, with no thoughts to pester me.”

    Summary

    In peripheral vision, Jisung's eye caught the polished glint of a black shoe's surface. The candles, almost obese in melting wax dimmed under the presence of the other man and he dared not turn around.

    "Good evening." A mellow voice echoed through the hall, blending lines between his soft timbre and the rainfall lurking behind the dusted windows.

    "Good evening." Replied Jisung.

    He cautiously rocked around on his heels, lifting his hands up in the air as strings of pearl jewelry dangled from his hungry pockets. The man was wearing a white blouse tucked into a blood-red suit, a name sowed in cursive onto his upright pocket. 'Lee Minho' it read.

    He seemed to be faking a blind eye to the robber's ragged clothes, drenched hair, and eyes fearful like one of a cornered lamb.

    Minho smiled. "How long will your stay with us be?"

    Summary

    Pot pourri de vignettes écrites à quatre mains, qui n'ont pas d'autre lien entre elles que d'être toutes un hommage à Erik et Charles, ces messieurs qui s'aiment et que Marcel Proust aurait appelés en d'autres lieux et à une autre époque des adeptes du Charlisme. (C'est ainsi que dans La Recherche, l'auteur dénomme les homosexuels, ce qui est en soi une trop belle coïncidence, n'est-il pas ?)

    Summary

    “So what I’m getting from this conversation - is that Hikari and Yamato make love to each other. Whereas Sora, Taichi, and Koushiro fuck like animals.”

    The Angel of Light and Wolf of Friendship have rewritten the stars and will give birth to a new love - their beautiful lily.

    Project Alstroemeria was going to do more during her lifetime than guide the Real and Digital World towards a state of harmony.

    OR: Having defeated a demonic creature from the Dark Ocean, Yamato and Hikari tie the knot while waiting for the birth of their first child. Since Gennai’s warning of engaging in sexual relations was proven to be a red herring, the Chosen Young Adults rekindle their bonds and work together once more. Starting with Taichi and Sora, who continue their night on the town. But the brothel owner has second thoughts, leaving the hitman heartbroken.

    The reunited seven Chosen navigate through their adult passions together, all while being at odds and embracing each other. Unbeknownst to them, malign forces continue to watch over them; with some members coming from a place that's near and dear to their hearts.

    (YamaKari, AU after the events of 02 & will have an eventual OT3.)

    Summary

    When Akechi showed up at LeBlanc's 8 months post-Maruki, I stayed with Futaba: I knew Akira's grief well enough that they needed to be alone.
    But Futaba's been a different person since he's come back...
    Ann left for those months, but her heart stayed with Ryuji and Makoto. But we've found out if something bad happens to a teammate, we all get a little crazy. And some of them are even angrier than before... At least Haru and Yusuke seem to be staying safe..
    But this won't end with one fight! No one will admit that, but they all feel it. Everyone seems to be changing, and they're fighting even worse shadows than before. And Akechi still has to fight his cognition: a snapshot of his darkness from before, that Akira's mind had made, the only one that came through from Maruki's world...
    But I'm starting to think they might be going at this all wrong.
    So what do you wanna do? Are you gonna read?
    -Mona
    (Akechi's Note: While the cat wrote this, going involves all the Thieves... And more. With an increase in darkness, there comes an increase in age: So be prepared for a mild amount of filth, a modicum of 'fluff', and more violence than even I'm expecting...)

    Summary

    The coming of end times are finally far behind them as Crowley and Aziraphale look forward to getting on with their unusually 'normal' lives. But during a single game of drunk charades, the angel and the demon begin to realize that the worst may not yet be behind them as they have the misfortune of finding something neither of them can truly discern from being holy or unholy.
    But one thing's for sure.
    It's about to become their next serious dilemma.
    Well....at least that's what Aziraphale thinks. Crowley's just happy to have them around for tea.
    ___________________________
    "AN EXCELLENT QUESTION." The creature happily shouts, lifting it's arms. "I'M HERE TO LOOK AT YOUR STRANGE HUMAN SYMBOLS!"

    "You mean read?" Crowley inputs.

    "OH NO. I CAN'T READ."

    "What!?———What in heaven and hell's name have you been doing then for the past three weeks!?"

    Summary

    Letters had always seemed more personal to Spencer. There was something about seeing another persons penmanship that made him feel more connected to the person writing the letter than a text did. Maybe it was the fact he could see the pressure in the pen or the parts that they rushed that made him understand more. And so, signing up to a pen pal service just made sense.

    Talking was difficult for Elizabeth. She never wanted to say the wrong thing or make herself seem like a fool. She did however want to try something new. So, when encouraged by her friend to sign up to the pen pal service the post office is offering, she gives it a try.
