    Summary

    "Through Power I gain Victory."
    Failing that, the Alliance Commander was prepared to sacrifice herself in an attempt to stop the Superweapon from snuffing out all life - allies and enemies alike - on Iokath. What she wasn't prepared for (as if her uncharacteristically selfless, borderline suicidal plan couldn't backfire spectacularly, as if they weren't on a planet littered with astonishing technological feats) was ending up in stasis for an impossible amount of time.

    Summary

    Chenle tries to drive every thought out of his head with distractions. He witnesses the fall of the Berlin Wall through a TV screen, an old VHS tape left by his uncle, but he feels it as if it's happening right in front of him. The first brick comes down and Chenle thinks that this must have been what it was like to be there that day, to witness the change of a nation divided in two.

    Chenle imagines that he's divided in two but there's no wall here and no cameras to capture the debris.

    There is not a single star that he can wish on to give him what he wants.

    Summary

    It had been near two centuries since the quirks starts showing up and most of the quirkless individuals were either put into a facility or they are given to powerful individuals who can afford to protect them or to powerful heroes who are willing take them in.

    Bakugou Katsuki never thought that he will see Izuku after he was taken to the facility. He never thought to see him on the day he was supposed to choose a slave as his prize for winning.

    Summary

    Summary

    Vincent knelt down, holding up the kid's t-shirt, and he was level with the bruises. With his son’s kitten nipples, sharp and pink and shadowed with splotched purple. Marked. Bitten, and Vincent pulled the t-shirt down again. He looked up at Ciel’s closed white face.
    ‘What,’ he said, ‘the fuck is this?’
    ‘Nothing,’ said Ciel, again, and he opened his blue eyes wide and wet and fluttering. Faltering.
    ‘Where were you? When I was looking for you?’
    ‘Garage.’ Concrete scuffs, raw on his bare knees.
    ‘With who?’
    ‘Mhhm,’ said Ciel. His little pink mouth was pressed closed. His chin was crumpling. ‘Nobody.’

    People are talking about Vincent's kid.
    Vincent doesn't like it.
    He doesn't like the way Ciel looks at his daddy's grown-up friend, either.

    If you like plot, culture, and literary references, feel free to read my other works: there's NONE of that here. It's a vent.

    UPDATE: It now has a plot, and some literary reference too. But it's still a vent, and I'm still not apologising...

    Summary

    So here's the thing: Merle Dixon is dead as fuck. And as it turns out, Beth Greene is the only one who can see or hear him. Which is weird considering she's never met or even heard of this guy, let alone anyone with the last name Dixon. That's her first problem.

    The second problem? Merle won't leave her alone. He insists that he will literally haunt her entire family if she doesn't help him resolve some kind of weird conflict concerning his death. And for some reason it concerns his brother, too. So Beth has no choice but to confront and try to convince the living—and extremely stubborn—Daryl Dixon to not only believe her, but also help her.

    Admittedly, she has no idea what she's getting herself into. And who could? A fake psychic's cryptic advice, a bunch of brotherly angst, a mysterious Swamp Witch, a deal with a demon, a battle against time for the fate of two souls, and a shit ton of repressed childhood trauma. Oh, and on top of all that... the relentless Merle Dixon and his ever enlightening commentary.

    Summary

    The HPSC President laughs dryly. “I hate to say it, but Villain Rehabilitation Services might actually be the department best equipped to handle Todoroki right now. Difficult, fraught, potentially lethal cases aren’t exactly uncommon for you.”
    “What does it say about Heroes that their best and brightest has a psychological profile like that,” Izuku mutters.
    “If we wanted sane, we would’ve run out of Heroes a long time ago.”

    In which Midoriya Izuku is a Quirkless pencil-pusher, and Todoroki Shouto is at a record-setting personal best for his Terrible Days Hot Streak.

    Summary

    In a world… Where everything seems to pressure them to have sex… Geralt and Jaskier are courageously resisting. Although, in Jaskier’s case it’s more about simply losing hope.
    It begins… Where the show stopped because such an intense set up needs a pay off before 2021.
    Set in locations with names that never appear in neither the books nor the show but sound like lazy modifications of the ones that do… The drama unfolds.
    Trapped in a plot-less void where every event exists solely to motivate interpersonal communication, with villains who have a suspicious interest in their personal lives… They struggle to make sense of the growing closeness between them.
    Surrounded by war, existential doubt, boundless human cruelty, and bloodthirsty monsters… They fight to survive.
    As Nilfgaard slowly floods the Continent with the blood of the innocent, and structured lives of people who cultivate the land unfold into chaos…
    As the growing collective dread begins to appear as an inevitable consequence of fundamental flaws in human nature which can lead only to slow deterioration and painful social decline…
    Only one question comes to mind…
    Will they or won’t they?
    They definitely will.

    Summary

    Vera's world ended not with a bang, but with a whimper: the year is 2095, the world in the throes of late-stage climate change. The Earth will keep going, the humans - not so much. As it turns out, the apocalypse is contagious: either that, or she has spectacularly bad luck. Waking up naked on a bloody altar isn't the best introduction to a new place, but you make do with what life hands you. After a rocky start, Vera finds herself in Markarth, trying to make a new home for herself amidst the violence, corruption, and Thalmor zealotry. But just when things are finally settling down - as much as they can in the city of blood and silver - a Nord and a Dunmer roll into town with the mother of all bad deals. Always read the fine print.

    This story starts about a year before the events of the game and will continue through the timeline and the DLCs. This is the first installment. Canon-compliant(ish), but skews towards a lot of original content. Narration is in 3rd person limited; the protagonist is not the Dragonborn.

    Please note: content warnings applied to individual chapters.
    Updates roughly once a week for the foreseeable future.

    With deep gratitude to efmrider for her keen beta-ing eyes and support
