    Summary

    Here’s the thing: Geralt isn’t real.

    Jaskier sings about him, sure, and people seem to assume the tales of the White Wolf are true, and sometimes they ask the bard where his traveling companion is. Jaskier always makes something up, because it’s easier than the truth.

    Geralt isn’t real. He’s a figment of Jaskier’s imagination, has been for years, and sure, sometimes Jaskier hears his voice telling him that his songs are wrong, but he was always a fanciful lad. It’s just his brain working overtime.

    Summary

    As the Avengers slowly grow closer to each other, they begin to notice some oddities about their resident gamma expert, oddities that he is not even aware of.

    Prompt from tumblr user pushingcrazies: What if Bruce also had some of the more traditional (if there is any such thing) DID personality types/archetypes. Obviously the Hulk is the Protector Archetype. What if Bruce also had a child personality, or a punk personality, or….I dunno, I’m trying to think back to my psychology class and when I used to watch United States of Tara, but I’m coming up blank on some of the more common personality archetypes. But you know what I mean.

     

    And, like, thanks to the Gamma radiation, each personality type would manifest itself in a physical variation of Bruce.

    Summary

    This is a world in which Mob and Reigen’s paths have never crossed, in which 10-year-old Mob found psychic guidance in the form of the aging, retired tv personality Keiji Mogami, in which Reigen followed through on his plans to close the Spirits and Such Agency, in which a cruel twist of Mob’s powers forces him to confront how dangerous he really is.

    10 year old Shigeo Kageyama has vanished, his trail instantly cold, and his case gathers dust in police archives as a kidnapping never solved. Four years pass before a chain of events causes his path to cross with that of the despondent, unfulfilled fake-psychic-turned-fake-investigator, Arataka Reigen. Reigen finds himself in over his head caring for an escaped victim of abuse who, for reasons unfathomable, has been taught to believe his very existence is a horrifically dangerous thing…

    Bookmarker's Notes

    One of my favorite stories. Not just in terms of fanfic, but in general. I'm not exaggerating when I say that reading about Reigen and Mob healing together helped me repair some of my own wounds. I valued myself less before I read this back in 2018.

    It's not finished, and it probably never will be. But there's a beauty in unfinished things and I'm so grateful that we got as many chapters as we did. It also ends on a pretty stressful note, and is a pretty stressful story throughout. I know the author got a lot of undeserved flack from people who didn't understand, but the struggling and the blood is a big part of what makes this story valuable. Wounds that need exceptional care are also exceptionally painful. And reading about someone else stitching up their deep gashes almost feels like sewing up your own. It only makes sense. We need difficult, rewarding stories.

    The author is also a wonderful writer and plotter, and though I haven't read their other fics (I don't know much about BNHA but I love SU, I should really read them), I'm sure they're great too. There are so many scenes in the fic that stick with me- Reigen catching the blade, Mob sitting in the apartment while Reigen takes out the garbage, Ritsu not being able to imagine what his brother must look like now that years have past- and I haven't ready any other fics who's payoffs are nearly as satisfying.

    I swear this isn't a vie for you to revive this story and I hope my comments don't put any undue pressure on you. This is purely a thank you! Your fic was a turning point for my mental health, and helped me as I headed into one of the hardest years I've had yet. I really cherish it!
