  1. Summary

    While being pursued by a monster the likes of which they’ve never seen, Geralt, Ciri, and Jaskier attempt to escape into another universe. When the portal collapses with Jaskier still in it, he’s thrown off course and someplace that looks similar to home, but is just a little to the left of normal. Now, Geralt and Ciri must travel the multiverse to find him, before the monster catches up to them and devours them all.

  3. Summary

    Yennefer was able to save Jaskier's life after the djinn and Geralt's unintentional wish, but at the cost of his voice. Now the man whose identity was built on his singing, wordplay, and verbal charm has to figure out how to exist in the world without those things. Thankfully, navigating that is easier when you have people who love you trying to help you manage it.

    Summary

    Before he knew it, he was on the road.

    He sat back in the old seat of the van, a wave of gratification nearly taking the breath from his lungs. He let out a laugh- somewhere between relieved and terrified.

    “I did it,” He breathed. “I actually fucking did it.”

    There was a rustling behind him, he barely even registered before-

    “Whut d’ya do?”

    Wilbur screamed.

    Or

    Wilbur is driven (pun intended) to take a road trip, and finds a stowaway in his van that's going to make everything just so much harder.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    even if the sequel doesn't get posted/finished/whatever this is fantastic. Wilbur's dying and can't stay home. Tommy's trying to survive and needs a home. Somehow they make the van a home and they both get more family than they bargained for along the way. GUTTED ME ENTIRELY. this is the geraskier trucker au all over again i'm a wreck.

    Summary

    Tommy had lived and died as Theseus, Icarus, Orpheus and Sisyphus. But all he wanted to be was free.

    In which Tommy Soot, originally born in 1509, is cursed to be reborn, to never reach adulthood unless he figured out the Greek myth of his lifetime. He had one rule of not allowing himself to get attached to people but he would have never guessed that a foster family of the creator of Minecraft, an anime stan and a Soundcloud musician would break that rule.

     

    ~ SBI Foster AU but with Greek mythology.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I really can't explain why this fic is so good, it just IS. Tommy's been reincarnated bc Dream's a manipulative asshole.

    If you replace all the broken component parts of a thing with new unbroken ones, is it still the same thing? If you replace all the shattered component parts of a person and their life with healthier repairable ones, are they still the same person?

    In which Tommy's life is the ship of Theseus, and he is Ariadne searching for Dionysus.

    Summary

    In September of 1971, Severus Snape finds a forgotten portrait of the Slytherin family in a dark corner of the Slytherin Common Room. At the time, he has no idea that talking portrait will affect the rest of his life.

    On 31st July 1995, Harry Potter disappears from Little Whinging a few minutes after midnight. The means of his departure are unfathomable, and the Order's only relief in their concern is the fact that Voldemort was not responsible.

    The rest of Wizarding Britain is too busy tearing down their Wizarding Savior via the press to be much concerned, at least until certain Slytherin allies decide that enough is fucking well enough.

    Summary

    There’s definitely something wrong with my threat assessment module, because I know this is a stupid decision but I’m making it anyway. “Okay, no way around it. I’m going to have to go talk to this White Wolf person. I don’t suppose you have a map to where he lives?”

    I’m not letting a Rim corporation take over this fucking mudpit without at least trying to stop it.

    The fact that this WORKS is a huge reason to read this on its own, but it's also really good.
