    Summary

    If he’d been born in another time and place, Bertrand Bell would’ve spent his days packing weights into sacks of flour. Or he’d be passing bricks off as copper ingots, or he’d be telling stories—a jilted young man with a ring worth a great deal of money and nothing else, wanting only to go home—well, okay, in his youth he’d pulled that one a couple of times.
    If he were a different person he’d be a different person; there’s not much point in dwelling on it.

    Summary

    After a harrowing trip through Underfell, Frisk is nearly ready to go meet King Asgore. Their adoptive brother and good friend Sans would rather they go anywhere else—anywhere at all, as long as they don't get to that throne room. After all, in this world, it's kill or be killed.

    That's just this world, though. How about the next one over?

    Summary

    “Regard your soldiers as your children, and they will follow you into the deepest valleys; look upon them as your own beloved sons, and they will stand by you even unto death."

    Summary

    There must be balance, the Universe said, finally. You will lose something, too.

    “I understand.”

    He will be your Angel. Your Hand in the mortal realm. I will heal his wound, and he will carry out your will and mine. He will live.

    “And in return?” Kristin’s voice trembled.

    You will return to your realm. He will remain here. You will no longer pretend to be a mortal, you will no longer live at his side, and you will no longer live in this world.

     

     

    Or: Philza Minecraft, the Universe, and the lengths the ones who love him will go to.

    Summary

    Conspiracy, noun: a secret plan by a group of people; a word to describe a group of ravens.

    Keyleth never claimed to be a good liar. And yet, in spite of that fact, she was able to lie to her closest friends, her family, for an entire year. She hadn't meant to...it just sort of happened.

    Like so many things following the fall of Vecna, it was unplanned and unexpected.
