    Summary

    Premise: what if God were given consistent characterization? He’s clearly abusive—not the type to arbitrarily give favors or gifts. Chloe isn’t a gift, she just happens to have grown up with the idea that desires are a pointless trap, so being around Lucifer simply doesn’t affect her. From there, he self actualizes vulnerability in her presence. God doesn’t save Chloe from Malcom as a favor—Lucifer saves himself. This series starts in parallel with Season 2 of the show and diverges from there.

    Summary

    No one knows Frenchie's real name.

    Not even Frenchie.

    Not sure what this is yet. A study in Frenchie.

    There are mentions and allusions to his childhood, references to abuse and some other nasty stuff, so please read on cautiously. I mostly want to explore the character, what is known, what isn't.

    Please feel free to comment.

    Summary

    It turns out that the death of the Calamity doesn't prevent more things from falling apart.

    A year after the fall of Calamity Ganon, eighteen year old Link goes back in time to before the end of the world, before the fall of Hyrule, before he ever even drew his sword, and starts to fix things before they can go wrong. It takes a while before he realizes he might be able to regain pieces of himself, too.

    Summary

    Ames grins, tossing another gummy into her mouth. “You hate him.”

    “I don’t hate him,” Dara says.
     
    “You do--oh my god, you totally do!” She laughs. “You were all cold eyes at him--like that!--and you barely said a thing to him. You gotta admit it was assholish, even for you.”

    Dara shakes his head. “I don’t hate him.”

    “But?”

    But Lehrer shoved a file on his background at Dara a few weeks back at a dinner reservation he’d arranged for them. First time in God knows how long they’d spent time together, especially since the campaign began, and despite everything Dara marked the date down on his calendar with red pen. Lehrer told him, between sips of vintage wine, “He’s an orphan--just like you.”

    Except Dara isn’t an orphan, and his father doesn’t make slip ups. Lehrer’s marble eyes glinted above the rim of his glass.

    --

    basically it's just the story if it was set in our time and there are no witchings. dara falling in love with noam w/out the telepathy and the need to take down a nation, but with the alcohol, the abuse, and the terrible communication.

    "Oh, no, common misconception," says Spike. "Rupert and human Rupert are different people."

    Or: Spike adopts a very dumb orange cat who helps him experience the power of friendship and, more importantly, psychologically torment Giles.
