    It's when Keith sees his opponent, a boy with a bright smile and even brighter clothes, that he knows he's already lost.

    Well, he'll win the match, but his heart? Yeah, that's lost for good.

    Summary

    Follow still since so thy fates ordained,
    The Sun must have his shade,
    Till both at once do fade,
    The Sun still proved, the shadow still disdained.

    "Feel my heart?" Hamlet forced Horatio's hand to expand so that all of it could feel his steady heartbeats. "It is still alive, and it beats with my requited love for you."
    -

    Or fate proves once again that no matter what, the two beloved friends need each other and will never let their affections go. Horatio needs a reminder and Hamlet needs emotional support.

    Summary

    Bucky Barnes has finally come home.

    A year and a half after the events on the helicarriers, desperate for a safe haven and a chance to finally rest, Bucky takes Steve at his word and returns to the dilapidated row house in Brooklyn where he and Steve once lived.

    Room by room, he slowly starts to fix up the house as he works on his own recovery, while Steve starts to circle closer and closer. It's not easy; it was never going to be easy, and as Steve and Bucky draw even closer to each other in their dance, there are new steps to learn and old wounds to heal.

    But nothing has ever been able to stop these two boys from Brooklyn, and as they start to share food, trips to Home Depot, late night runs and eventually laughter, it turns out that Bucky isn't the only one who needs help healing.

    That's only if Steve can get Bucky to believe in himself and the life they have started to build together, and convince Bucky to stay.

    Summary

    After Han Jisung erased Lee Minho from his memory, he finds a box containing a million pictures of him, and throughout each one of them he unfolds their love story, from the beginning to their tragic end.

     
    "What is this?" He asks.
    "A picture of you," I say. "I'll take one everyday I'm in love with you." Minho doesn't know I took a million pictures of him already.
    He smiles, and for the first time I know everything's going to be alright. But nothing lasts forever: the memory faded in an instant.

    Summary

    There are certain metaphors we use to understand our lives, but when we refuse to see things as they really are they become even more difficult, even more drawn out. Even more painful.

    Summary

    The one where uninspired chef Dean Winchester has a one night stand with the male (!) food critic who described the flavour of his garlic bread as 'closeted' and accidentally ends up dating him to try and prove that he's a kick ass chef, thank you very much.

    (He may have a point about the 'closeted' thing).

    Summary

    I tried to fit in and I changed myself in every way you can imagine. I just wanted to be part of the game. And then I realized - well - I create the game.
    - Conchita Wurst

     

    Picks up right after the events of Violets, Violins, Violence. Maybe the hero's journey for Clarice Starling came to an end, but that doesn't mean that she was ever guaranteed a happy ending. Now, perhaps unwittingly, she's being pulled back into another chess game, with the stakes even higher than before. No one is exactly who they seem, and not even the chess pieces are black and white.

    Summary

    After the Battle of Hogwarts, Severus Snape lives a quiet life as a biochemist in San Diego. His body is slowly deteriorating -there's only so far he could undo the organ damage created by Nagini's venom. Not to mention the side-effects of his high-potency, experimental antivenom potions. But just as his physical and psychological suffering is becoming too much to bear, a comet enters his atmosphere, as if to brighten his final long orbit around the sun. Or, rather... not a comet, but a moon. Set ten years after the events of book seven. Hurt/comfort, angst, weight appreciation, and food kink/feederism related elements.

    The Big Apple, a common pseudonym for New York City. What if it was taken literally?

    This fic starts out with a metaphor, then sinks slowly into an ocean of them. Where will it end?

    Summary

    Steve and Bucky are really just trying to live their best life, with nice cooked meals, a nice house and a nice friend.

    Except that neither of them really sleep, both of them have nightmares and everything is kind of shitty. Also, Bucky disassociates and it usually ends very not good.

    If he could, Steve would formally send a letter with nothing but a hyper realistic drawing of a middle finger on it to Hydra. For now, he'll stick to making Bucky food when life gets tough (which is always.)

    Summary

    Are you looking for trash fiction? Well you have found it, my friend. We are the spark that will light the dumpster fire that will burn your computer/mobile device down.

    Set a bit before The Force Awakens and ending concurrent with The Last Jedi, Deadlock is a comedy/thriller/love story/pain train that explores important questions such as: Where are the Knights of Ren? What is up with Snoke (and all the lamé)? How did the Force Bond between Rey and Kylo form and why? What is with the stick up Amilyn Holdo's butt? And most crucially, what is a babbit? Don’t worry, it has the sex too. LOTS of SEX.

    Summary

    Once you listen to your favourite song for so long your brain stops responding to the stimuli like it did before, causing your brain to look for something new. Once you live the same version of your miserable life for over three months and feel nothing but heaviness in your chest, your brain gets tired. It looks for something new and eventually you'll get so tired of your life that your brain will switch the channel.
    Except this channel if your life, and there's only one other channel you can change to.

    Summary

    The Fey King’s throne loomed over the hall like a church’s gargoyle. It faced the door so that one could not set foot in the room without being subjected to it’s ominous presence. The candles strewn throughout the room provided a flickering, inconstant light, but it was like the room was underwater. The light reached a few feet above eye height before weakly filtering out and dying just as it touched the foot of the stone base of the structure.

    It was just as empty as the rest of the castle.

    Kakuzu curled his fist tighter around the iron spike. There was no sign of any Fey Folk anywhere, nor either of the missing Uchihas.

    Summary

    Shun and Yuya are alone in caring for their terminally ill younger sister, Ruri, after their parents disappear. However, when Ruri dies during a trip to the zoo, she is magically brought back to life by a mysterious hippo hat. The hat possesses her and orders the brothers to find the Hippodrum, if they want Ruri's miracle to continue.

    Although neither of them have any idea what the Hippodrum even is, there's no way they're going to let their sister die. Together, and along with a mysterious cast all tied together by the same long ago terrorist incident, they will search for the true meaning of the Hippodrum, and decide what it is that they want to protect most of all.
