    Summary

    “I’ve told the plants what I think about sssspotss!” Crowley hisses, savage. “It had one job to do, and it messssed it up. It has to be punished. It should have done better. It’s a disssappointment and a failure and a worthlesss—”
    He breaks off, seeing Aziraphale staring at him, too-perceptive eyes wide and comprehending and horror-stricken.
    “No. No. Never worthless,” the angel breathes.

    ~ ~ ~

    Aziraphale walks in on Crowley and his houseplants.

    Summary

    [Audio Length: 17:02]

    Original Summary:

    This had been a mistake. His Jaskier, warm where Geralt was cold, soft edges where Geralt had hardened, Jaskier who fucking smiled when Geralt looked at him and fell in love like it was something you could give away for free. Jaskier who found the plainest girl in the room and danced with her until dawn as though it was an honour, leaving her flushed and her enemies jealous. Jaskier who used touch to talk just as much as he used words –

    The warm body beside Geralt shifts and rolled over, and Geralt keeps his back turned, keeps looking over the side of the bed at the broken floorboard and the sharp nail sticking out of it, anything other than turning and finding –

    Jaskier.

    (or: after finally falling into bed together, Geralt wakes up and promptly freaks out. Thankfully his bard knows him.)

    Summary

    Jeongin loves control. He loves planning. He loves games. He loves chess.
    For someone like him, the world is nothing more than a chessboard, the pieces all at his disposal to do with as he wishes.

    But sometimes, someone who plays chess doesn't know he is a chess piece on the board at the same time.

     

    Or: Jisung thinks his life is finally going great. He has wonderful friends, a job he enjoys and a home to feel safe in.

    Too bad it's all a lie.

    Summary

    A coming of age story, childhood and recent trauma, relationships and their struggles, ghosts, and answering the question do you really think that friendships can last more than one lifetime?

     

    “The thing about Aang was that he always knew how to have fun. No matter the situation, circumstances, or even where they were; he would always find a way to at least enjoy himself. Even if something tragic were to happen to him--which it has--he would find the bright side to it. And that really pissed Zuko off. (Uncle would like him though. Uncle did like him.)”

    Summary

    You're dead, you're supposed to be dead, and so is the poor child whose body you're piloting - or maybe they're you. Maybe they've always been you.

    Todoroki Shouto has memories that he didn't make on his own, motor skills his brain doesn't know how to parse, and a love of science and mathematics and physics that means he broke down his Quirk into its most intricate, universe-bending components at the age of seven.

    This changes more than a few things.

    Summary

    But what if -
    Ben and Rey meet in a bar. Ben is a hot-shot lawyer who tells Rey he’s a garbageman. Rey tells him she’s a kindergarten teacher when really she’s a policy advisor, his mother’s right hand.

    And what if -

    Rey and Ben both know who the other is really, know they’re pretending, but they don’t care as long as they can keep meeting in different hotel rooms as often as possible?

    And how long can they keep that up?

    Summary

    The sea wants to rise, and the sky wants to sink. All of its life, the sea wished for wings while the sky wished for fins.

    None of them ever gets it.

    Instead, they were given a line.

    Summary

    Dusk had crept upon them, and the choice loomed over the horizon.
    Would they take the leap and traverse the Seas? Or would they stay back among the ruins of what had been and fade into history?

    This choice, however, had never been theirs.
    Too soon, they had been pulled apart from what had always been familiar, from what had once been home to cross the Sea, to walk blindfolded over a tightrope and try not to stumble.

    And so, they had set forth, weary elves burdened with the weights of their regrets, their thoughts, and of the silences left festering.

    Alternatively,
    The last of the elves set sail to the Undying Lands, to face uncertainty.
    Glorfindel arrives in a world he thinks he knows, where he becomes a mystery.
    Thranduil has his words caught in his throat, words eating out at him while silences linger.
    Ecthelion vows to hold on this time around, but the face from his memories has returned remade, yet unchanged.
    Erestor once spoke without thought, and in what followed, lost his words.
    Elcallon has so much to say, he reaches and reaches, for someone who hides.

    Or,
    Idiots pine, fail to communicate, and suffer.
    And then, heal together.

    Summary

    It was supposed to be a simple mission - take out a missing-nin, collect the body, get paid. Next thing Iruka knows, he's waking up with a whole new thirst for blood and instincts he doesn't quite know how to control yet. Things could be worse, though. At least he hasn't killed anyone... yet.

    Summary

    Yanli and Xichen are letter-writing friends.

    When the Wen Sect launches their devastating attacks, they each come face to face with war, death, and destruction. Over time they grow closer - first through their letters, then in the camps over the course of the Sunshot Campaign.

    It's hard to handle everything alone, but it's also just that much easier to deal with it all together.

    Especially the most daunting yet important task of all - looking after their precious little brothers.

    Summary

    "It takes a village to raise a child"

    Uzushio is that village. She's been alive longer than anyone else, has loved and lost more children than anyone can comprehend. She's more than just the ninja village and after the Fall she has had enough. She ventures out into the world to look for her lost children. Along the way she becomes a magnet for abandoned, lost and dangerous children (She wonders if all adults are incompetent at childcare? Maybe she should write a parenting manual at the end of all this? Sage knows the parents and villages her foundlings are from could do with one!).
    Mama Uzu builds a family and feeds them. Maybe she fixes some problems along the way, after all isn't that what mothers do?

    Jinchuriki-centric (because those babies were hard done by), strong female characters (because they were also hard done by) and people have conversations and hugs (because they are necessary for healthy growth).

    Next Chapter - Utakata Part Six:
    Uzu is causing trouble in Konoha. Utakata meets someone. Saiken is enjoying his Jinchuriki's discomfort. Uzu is not a happy woman/entity. Utakata wonders how diplomacy will go when Konoha learns his Kaa-chan has kidnapped a child.
