    Summary

    Now revised and much better (I hope)
    Nico has never had a support system. He’s always dealt with his own problems and has no inclination to force other people to bear the weight. Pain has always been his best teacher so he takes the few small parts of his life that he can control and holds on as tightly as he can. He can feel himself dying, he knows its only a matter of time, but he’s always been patient.
    *****
    When he had been forced into the infirmary a week ago, Will had given him a full examination. He had tutted at Nico’s weight, gasped and recoiled at the infected werewolf scratched, and then he had seen the scars. They covered his hipbones and thighs. Too clean to be a monster attack, to many to be explained away. Will hadn’t said anything. Nico wasn’t even sure if he wanted him to say anything. It’s not like he would have offered any clarification.

    Will just caught his arm before he left at the end of the third day, “If you ever wanna talk, I’m here and a pretty good listener.”

    Nico hadn’t said anything, he just walked back to his cabin.

    Later that night he gave the scars more company.

    Summary

    Honestly I have no idea how to describe this thing. Basically, Luz leaves the Boiling Isles in am AU where Agony of a Witch doesn’t happen and things go on as normal, then Luz leaves at the end of the summer and returns four years later as the Beta version of herself. Shenanigans ensue. The tone ranges from shitposting to sobbing your eyes out at 3am. No matter who you are, there’s probably something for you.

    Summary

    Keqing’s lungs seize up. Her fingers curl into fists and Ganyu tilts her head up to meet her eyes and—

    "Ganyu, this is Keqing. Your bodyguard."

    Ganyu pulls down her mask. "Keqing?" she repeats, mouth slightly parted.

    She tries to smile. It comes out more like a grimace. "Hi."

    Ningguang purses her lips. "Do you know each other?"

    "No," says Keqing quickly. "No. We don’t."

    It turns out six years after they've cut off all communication is when everything begins.

    (or: Ganyu is a world-famous idol, Keqing is her bodyguard, and somewhere in there: a love story waits for them.)

    Summary

    The head of the Camorra, Santino D’Antonio, is known to have clever hands and a cleverer mind. In another life, he might have been a world-class thief, but in this one, he's the head of the Camorra and one of the stronger of the Twelve Families of the High Table, as slippery as a shadow in the dark and more vicious than any of the killers in his retinue. He's also more than a little insane, if rumor holds true to form. So when he shows up in Viggo's living room asking John to play a game, John agrees.

    And somehow, they never stop playing.

    AU in which: Santino was always head of the Camorra, Gianna is quite a bit younger, Gianna wants to steal the Camorra, and Gianna offers a Marker to John Wick to kill her brother (his lover) and uses a rather different proposition than the one made in canon.

    Summary

    Adachi Kiyoshi was an average Twenty-Nine year old office worker. In fact he was excessively average; single, only one friend, middling success at work, nothing really interesting or noteworthy about him and his life except the fact he was extremely socially awkward and prone to messing things up. He figured that was how things would stay, until one particular mess up ended with a broken phone and a text sent to a wrong number. Somehow, one awkward conversation turned into more, and he found himself falling into a strange friendship with the anonymous person on the other end of his phone, someone who he could be himself with, without having to expose all the insecurities that plagued him in his real relationships.
    Question was, what to do when his attachment to the mysterious stranger started to grow, and he began to want something real with them too? Would they stay anonymous penpals, or would he find a way to meet the smiling face behind the messages?

    Summary

    A missed connection on the way home from Hermione's family ski trip in the middle of fifth year changes everything, and causes Hermione to question some implicit assumptions of the wizarding world.

    It also lays the groundwork for her inexorable collision in the Department of Mysteries with the /last/ woman to hold the title of "Brightest Witch of Her Age" -- Bellatrix Black Lestrange.

    And their battle will lead to the very situation they both want least--together, a struggle to survive, far away from any support.

    I originally wrote this story back in 2015-2017. This is a translation project, and also an attempt to fix the numerous cultural errors and plot holes present in the original version.

    Summary

    Sapnap narrowed his eyes onto him. “He just called your father a prick and you’re smiling?”

    There was a small tug at the corner of Dream’s lips, his eyes remaining on the ground. “No one has ever spoken about my father like that before.”

    Sapnap scoffed. “Yeah. Because they know they’ll get cindered if they do.”

    “Exactly.” Dream finally brought his eyes to his friend, his smile widening slightly. “Makes him that much more interesting.”

    Following the death of Queen of Salacia, George is thrown into kingship. And in reluctantly preparing for an indefinite war on the account of avenging his mother, George's vision seems to get blurred by the unlikely and unexpected bond he forms with the Prince of Vulcan: Dream.
