    Summary

    The faint glint in Eren’s eye calmed Levi’s flare of indignant anger. “Just… let me…” Eren slid his hand down over Levi’s parted lips, gently brushing them with his fingertips. Levi felt the shudder in his spine just as Eren replaced those fingers with a kiss so tender, he nearly missed it. Just a brief touch of the lips, but Levi felt it far deeper than the surface of his skin. It crawled down inside his chest, settling into his belly and replacing that strange, gnawing feeling with something far greater, and much more unsettling.

    After he bid Eren a good night for the second time and closed the door behind him, he leaned against the old, pitted wood and closed his eyes against the vacuous space of his quarters. His own fingers traced the lingering sensation of Eren’s lips against his as the realization struck him.

    This man will destroy me.

    - -

    Levi has known nothing but immense, continuous loss in his time -- it has hardened him. But one stubborn, foolhardy man breaks down the walls Levi has erected around himself, much like those surrounding their world, and shows him just how much lies beyond. Beyond these skies, beyond this life, and further yet. A story of love and loss.

    Summary

    New York City is still rebuilding in the wake of the Chitauri army when the biotech virus Extremis is released, upgrading a lone domestic terrorist into a posthuman threat. Tony would’ve been happy to keep going on playing with alien tech in his lab, saving average citizens as Iron Man, and pretending not to notice these other people moving into his tower, but sometimes a person just can’t have nice things.

    Summary

    Life was fine until the hurricane of Yu Ziyuan came crashing into his desk on a boring Wednesday morning and said, “Get up, Wei Wuxian. You’re getting married.”

    Marriage is a very foreign concept to Wei Wuxian.

    Summary

    Darth Vader, the strong arm of the Sith, held loyal to his Order since they took he and his mother from slavery in the deserts of Tatooine. Until he became convinced they killed his wife. He abandoned his Order and disappeared in the chaos of the Clone Wars, presumed dead by all sides.

    That young Skywalker is known around town as a widower and homesteader; a Nabooian who emigrated to avoid the trade blockade; a father of overly-energetic twins and warding a Togruta war orphan; a decent mechanic if your farm equipment or maintenance droid is acting up.

    Anakin is a paranoid, over-protective hot mess doing his best to raise his weird pack the way Padmé would have wanted. How the hell is he supposed to do that when his kids and not-apprentice make him haul a half-dead Jedi Master home like a lost pet?

    Summary

    What if, before Wen Chao found Wei Wuxian in Yiling, Lan Wangji went looking for him?

    What if...

    "Tell me who did this to you."
    "Aiya, Lan Zhan, I really don't know what you're -- ah!"
    Lan Zhan tugged hard on the blue line that bound them together, and Wei Wuxian all but flew across the room, crashing into the bed with a pained groan and sinking to his knees on the floor. He supposed, slightly hysterically, that this must be something like what Jiang Cheng had felt when he had hit Wei Wuxian with all the force of a biting insect the day after his rescue.
    "You have no spiritual energy."
    "Haha, Lan Zhan, that's funny, because actually it's just that I --"
    "You have no golden core."

    This diverges from MDZS canon rather than CQL (so no yin iron, etc)

    Title from Sunlight by Hozier (which is SUCH a wangxian song it actually causes me pain)

    This is a FULLY COMPLETED WORK!! Updates will be every Tuesday and Friday :D
