    Summary

    "Witcher business?” Eskel asks, recognizing the fury burning in Geralt's eyes, the one that stemmed from innocents being hurt by monsters who deemed themselves men.
    Technically it is in that Valdo will be blacklisted but the rage, the want to show him how monsters are dealt with isn’t. It would never be sanctioned, should never be.
    “Valdo Marx is blacklisted. Every chapter to be notified. He’s not welcome here, better for him if he doesn’t make it through the doors,” Geralt’s words are calm, but it’s the danger that lurks in the spaces between. Lambert looks over his shoulder at Eskel as he shifts to the side, keeping an eye on Geralt. This was broad strokes measures, actions with repercussions that couldn’t be easily undone.


    We all know the story of how the White Wolf saved the Songbird, but this, dear reader, isn't that story. This is the tale of how it would have gone should the White Wolf find out long after blood has been spilled that someone else ensured the Songbird lived to sing another day.
    This is how the Songbird gains an army of Wolves to bring the monster to justice all while learning he's just as strong with a damaged wing.

    Summary

    Why did Clark have to invite Bruce to his farm? Of course it’s not the fact Bruce secretly wants to deep down inside! Or how he wants to meet the woman named after his own mother.... or the fact he actually likes the thought of friends and told Alfred about it in hopes he’d force him to go.

    What is Smallville even like? I guess Bruce will see as soon as they arrive, after a long road trip that is.

    Summary

    In the grim darkness of the far future, there is only war. However, this is one of the many planets largely untouched by mankind's unceasing battles against the menace of the universe. Despite their security, the streets of Hive Tealu will soon run red with blood, if an effort is not made to stop the nefarious schemes hatched in dark labyrinths beneath it. Join a Sister Hospitaller mortician who has never taken a life, and her friend, a police-soldier who's fame cannot quite quench his thirst for it, as they start to unravel the mystery and get swept up in a much grander crime than they ever suspected.

    Summary

    The whole world is against Marat.

    Being a young boy in a family of 7 is hard enough as the only son. But matters only get worse when you're a impoverished immigrant from the Fynwi region. Having gone to Hisui with his family to seek a better life, he works hard every day to feed his younger siblings.

    Despite his efforts, bad luck clings to him like burrs on felt. Dealt the wrong cards from the start, he lives with a cruel father and an equally bad mother. His oldest sister sneers at him. Mocks him. Laughs at him. There’s never a moment of peace. Except out in the wild.

     

    While exploring for berries to sell, his luck sends him straight into the jaws of a hungry pack of Pokémon. However, a relationship that might just stand the test of time follows him. Perhaps this was a gift from Arceus. A gift that will keep giving and provide him with something he’s never felt before.

    Kindness.

    Summary

    Born into poverty and driven into a corner as just a child, Itadori Yuuji, 8 years old, jumps at the chance when a kind stranger stretches out a helping hand and offers to save his life. Even as a child, he wasn’t ignorant of the blood that lingered under the kind stranger’s fingernails, but Itadori chose to ignore it. Besides, he didn’t care if his saviour was a good person or not, he was just happy to be alive. Because wasn’t that what his Grandad had always told him?
    “Only care about yourself. No one else matters. There’s no such thing as a proper death.”

    ——

    “I’m glad you remember my name.” Itadori replied, a wicked grin stretching across his lips, his smile pulling at the heavy tattoos that crawled across his cheeks.

    He hadn’t had those tattoos when Fushiguro had seen him last.

    “I thought you died.” Fushiguro said, wincing at the crack in his voice.

    “Sorry man, didn't mean to deceive you. S’all just part of the plan.” Itadori shrugged. “A bit like how, now, I have to kill you.”

    ——

    OR A Villain!Itadori alternative timeline where Itadori didn’t grow up with the support system he deserved and the wrong people get to him first

    Summary

    Sakura is lost, injured and alone in a forest far from home. The circumstances that led up to this are much less clear. A mysterious mental fog blankets her mind, impenetrable and obfuscating her memories.

    After scouring the land, she arrives at the horrifying conclusion that she’s been transported back in time to the Warring States era. Incredibly out of her depth, she has to navigate the old nation’s dangerous climate without becoming ensconced within their politics – a feat easier said than done, for a clan-less kunoichi.

    It's just her luck that the Uchiha start sprouting from the woodwork. It seems she can't escape them, no matter what century she's in.

    Summary

    An original story fanfic crossover of Madoka Magica and Warhammer 40K Universe.
    Part 1 tells the backstory of Toyo Sumire, an 11 years old girl being dragged into the world of magical girls, while also being a Psyker. (Space wizard from 40K)

    The dark God of fate and change Tzeentch has a lot in his mind for Toyo Sumire, calling her a promised champion and weaving her fate to become his champion in an oncoming small scale great game amongst the champions of rival gods.

    Magical girls, Daemons of the warp, copious amounts of angst and poor grammar. Planned as a 5 part story which becomes progressively more cocaine fueled, join me as I am writing the most cringeworthy cheap and flat humor fanfic you’ll read. It is so bad it loops back to good.
