    Summary

    It was hard enough for Patxi to wake up and realize that his own Lostbelt had been eliminated, and the prospect of aiding Chaldea in their efforts to destroy the other six is a lot for a single Yaga to handle, but he's going to make the best of it in the hopes of bringing back the world Fujimaru and Mash treasure so deeply. It's not like he's really got anything else to live for, or for that matter any real idea of what 'living' actually means. Especially since he's now adrift in a world he was never supposed to exist in.

    Summary

    Definition: R-phrases, also known as Risk Phrases, specify the particular danger(s) of a hazardous substance.
    The influence of Bakugou and his Followers was a powerful influence on Izuku's personality and childhood. Despite these negative influences being around for nearly all his life, he grew up to still hold a strong sense of heroic spirit; but what would have happened if Izuku had a positive influence in his life? What if there was someone who was there from the beginning to encourage and help him to reach his dreams?

    Summary

    A proud and stubborn proprietary architect shortly designated as Dariam has been sent by his User to work as a temporary co-administrator to reshape the Grid. What his User had failed to mention is that She was about to leave The Realm of The Invisible to visit his new system Herself.
    Meeting Her face-to-face and memorizing the sensation of Her hand threading static in his hair proved the first steps onto Dariam's slow descent into madness.

    This is a destructive codependent relationship between a devout self-righteous program and the idealist young engineer who gave him his signature;
    one featured through relatively self-indulgent short vignettes and drabbles unfolding on the Grid.
    They are mostly told through the Basic program's perspective, along with some bittersweet Alan & Tron (secretely Tron/Alan) shapped against the background in the silences of what's left unsaid, and in few pieces of advice they are asked for.

    Summary

    One had lost five years, and the other had spent them chasing, hunting, and wondering if this was the life they were destined to spend without their sibling. The day of the promise had finally come, and with it came the beginnings of the rebellion against the Empire and its allied forces. The Kingdom's prince was alive, but far from well. It would take all of them to bring Faerghus's future king back from the brink before they could even begin to fathom a world without war. (BL, AM, B!Sibling AU)

    Summary

    “In a Holy Grail War, it is a prudent tactic to eliminate enemy Masters,” the black knight explained without a hint of regret, “it deprives Servants of their mana supply, reduces their fighting capability. It is the most convenient way to assure our victory.”

    The Master glared now at his Servant, features creased in frustration and instinctive distrust.

    “That’s not what I want to do,” Shirou said, heated frustration in his words, “that’s not… that’s not right. To kill someone just for an advantage!”

    It went against everything he wanted to be, everything he had spent the last years trying to accomplish. To kill someone so coldly and so emotionlessly, like some kind of machine? That wasn’t–

    Saber adjusted himself, and leaned over his seated Master imperiously.

    “Tell me, Master. Why is that unacceptable?” he queried, “why is it that, in such a War, you refuse to draw blood?”

    Summary

    This was supposed to be their time, their Era. Era 3 in which both of them and everyone they knew and loved could live happily without having to fight or worry about anything anymore.

    AU from 'I AM My Monster', in which Steven couldn't be calmed down.

    Summary

    Orga has known this all along, but he’s made too many mistakes. Too many times, “there is no choice but to move forward” was an excuse to take the actions he might’ve not taken otherwise.

    This was a chance to do everything over, and to do it right. Whether it was a dream, a nightmare, or a vision of a groundhog loop he’s forever stuck in, like his own personal brand of hell, Orga owed it to everyone whose lives he’s gambled to at least try.

    Summary

    Caitlyn Hawke and Anders have big plans. With noble support and a useful, if corrupt, ally in Mother Petrice, Hawke intends to use the Qunari crisis to get Grand Cleric Elthina replaced with her own ally. She also has a certain big ambition of her own and a list of goals: limit Meredith Stannard’s influence, reform Kirkwall’s Circle, spark reform everywhere, and get the backing of Divine Justinia to safeguard her position as a mage ruler and protect her and Anders’ mage son from being taken away. But Meredith also has allies and is not ceding power without a fight—a very dirty and bloody one if necessary, one that challenges Caitlyn not to become a tyrant too.

    Meanwhile, Anders doesn’t think Caitlyn goes far enough with her reforms, and he—or perhaps Justice—also thinks she risks failure by playing by traditional political rules against a foe who thinks she is above rules. Meredith killed a previous Viscount, after all....

    (Canon-divergent. Reading Part 1, Spells of Healing, is recommended but not strictly necessary. Edited & illustrated!)

    Summary

    Layla knew that Will and Warren had both made choices, sacrifices really, to be with her. She only let herself feel guilty about those choices late at night when she was walking alone. Somehow, she could confide that to the Earth when she couldn’t to her partners.

    Possibly because the Earth didn’t think it mattered, and then, amazingly, it didn’t.
