  2. Summary

    "Alone, static and still, on a stark white wall, carefully-labelled and observed, a work of art is simply a relic, a file folder of medical analysis. [...]

    People are beautiful because of where they are placed, and where they are placed is beautiful because people are in it. Not everyone understands art. Not everyone needs to. But everyone foolishly thinks if they just found the right words, they could. Just place the painting on a white wall, in a large hall, and give them a pen and pad." --Hester in Season 1, Cassette #6: for Oleta

    This is a series of fics focused on exploring the "culture" of the Society and the suppression of the characters' cultures (or non-cultures, as the case may be). The characters of Within the Wires are stripped of or denied not only "national" identity, but family, tradition, and virtually every other naturally-occurring kind of trend found in human communities. What's art without culture?

    What's life in a monoculture?

  3. Summary

    The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt but it's just rewriting every scene with the Wild Hunt so that it's obvious Geralt has a very involved and personal history with them, delving into some of his memories from his time riding with them and incorporating his knowledge into his plans/expectations/nightmares.

    Because you can play that whole game and never be told that Geralt rode with the Wild Hunt and is entitled to call Eredin a bitch on a personal level, and I think that's bullshit. CD Projekt Red introduced this really cool concept at the end of Witcher 2 and then did The Least with it and I personally think it's time I fixed it.

  4. Summary

    Family is built out of trust and love and, in the Wolverines' case, attempting to kill each other at some point or another. Maybe things can be easier for the little ones, if they do it right. And maybe things aren't as bleak as they seem, if they just remember the strength of the ties that bind them together with the ones they love.

  5. Summary

    The Underworld had a long and storied history well before Prince Zagreus drew his first breath twice. Despite the vast population, the kingdom of the dead can be a lonely one without the right company, and Hades and Persephone know that better than most.

    Summary

    Roy pauses by a bench and grips one of its metal arms, leaning his weight on his right side for a moment. At the edge of the park on the opposite side of the road Roy can see a telephone booth bathed under the light of a streetlamp. It’s right there. He could go in, for a moment. Make the call. What would another bad decision be on his long list of ones? Could the Homunculi have access to every telephone line in Central?

    Would his Lieutenant be happy to hear from him?
     

     

    (Or, some time after Fuhrer Bradley takes everything away from him, Roy calls his Lieutenant.)

    Summary

    THIS FIC IS ON AN INDEFINITE HIATUS, I DON'T KNOW IF IT WILL BE FINISHED OR NOT (really genuinely sorry about that, life just got in the way)
    ---------

    This is the story of a man named Joseph.

    Joseph worked for a company in a big building where he was Employee #432.

    Employee #432's job was simple: he sat at desk #432 and wrote emails.

    This is what Employee #432 did every day of every month of every year, and although others may have considered it soul rending, Joseph didn't think about it much. His fingers typed the words automatically, precisely, as though he had been made exactly for this job.

    And Joseph was satisfied.

    And then one day, something very peculiar happened.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    The full story of Employee 432. Who he was, what happened to him, and what the story was like before it was about Stanley. I'm using the few clues we have about 432 to craft an actual narrative for him, so a lot is based on headcanon. Enjoy watching this poor little office man lose his goddamn mind.
