    Summary

    This is basically a dumping ground for me to show off my absolute geekiness and overanalyse various aspects of the Harry Potter universe. The first chapter has me taking my linguistics obsession to an extreme by "tracing" the etymologies of Hogwarts and the four founders to extrapolate their possible origins. The second chapter has me tackling the head-scratcher that is the wizarding economy as I try to figure out the basic value of a galleon. The third chapter is an addendum to the second.

    Come and geek with me about Harry Potter in the comments!

    Summary

    "No," his mother whispered into her palm. "This temple has never asked for a sacrifice!" He didn't know what that word meant, but he understood the sound of fear. His little heart began to pound in his chest and his breath shortened, his body going rigid.

    Summary

    Ever since the seraph were discovered, there's been one rule society has had to adapt to: stay out of open water. Powerful, determined and aggressive, the octopus-human creatures are in a league of their own and have no qualms with taking what they want and attacking what they don't. Now, children learn to swim in man-made lakes and beaches are deserted save for researches and the fool-hearted.

    Dean Winchester is neither of those things. But a hunt has brought him and Sam, his brother, to one of the many abandoned beaches, where Dean is left with no choice but to take refuge in the water. He should be safe, he thinks, he doesn't go too deep - just deep enough to hide himself and to deter his pursuer.

    He forgot just how fast the damn things could be, and how determined they were once they had their eyes on something.

    Summary

    Usually, when Death is involved, the earth shatters and apocalypses threaten mankind. Only worse things happen, bigger catastrophes — like when Death finds out that his beloved Cadillac's carburetor is ruined and his trusted mechanic has perished. A story about two lonely men, about classic cars and the hunt for the perfect 1959 62 Series spare part, involving Ebay, fast food and, as strange as it might sound, love and little brothers.
