  1. Summary

    While I'm still new to actually writing fanfiction, a while back I ran across a fic tagged Evil Author Day. Upon some digging, I learned that it's basically a tradition of posting snippets from unfinished works every year on or around February 15th. There is no guarantee that the snippets will ever turn into published works, but it's still a fun chance for authors to show off.

    Each chapter is a different snippet, which comes from one of a variety of fandoms I've been experimenting with writing in.

    I've tried to indicate in the notes some idea of where the snippets fit into larger works. As these snippets end up published in finished works, I'll indicate as appropriate.

  2. Summary

    What happens when Obadiah Stane is a bit more strategic in his betrayal of his protege, setting Tony Stark on the path towards a very different future than the one that he thought that he would have? And how will these changes in Tony's fate snowball outwards into SHIELD and the Avengers, the Earth, and eventually the entire Universe?

  4. Summary

    This series started from a simple idea that has become a popular theme since the release of the new Fantastic Beasts film.
    Specifically, what if the Dursleys' abuse (which everyone agrees is canon, at least to some extent) led to Harry becoming an Obscurial. Given that jumping off point, I decided to explore the consequences of this notion. In this case, things kick off well before Harry reaches Hogwarts age with the emergence of the Obscurus in Part 1.

    Part 1: Unexpected Consequences is complete. It covers Harry and Sirius' initial reunion in 1985.

    Part 2: A Tale of Two Letters is complete. It takes place six year later, in the summer of 1991, and covers the Hogwarts invitations and the realizations that come in the aftermath of those letters' delivery.

    Part 3: Irregular Homecomings is complete. It takes place starting in the summer of 1994, and is the events of Goblet of Fire in this universe.

    Part 4: Appendices are reference notes for the series. Each chapter is independent, and chapters are posting periodically.

    Summary

    From a Hobbitkink prompt:

    The battle was over, and Thorin Oakenshield awoke, naked and shivering, in the Halls of his Ancestors.

    The novelty of being dead fades quickly, and watching over his companions soon fills him with grief and guilt. Oddly, a faint flicker of hope arises in the form of his youngest kinsman, a Dwarf of Durin's line with bright red hair.

    (Follows the story of the War of the Ring).

     

    (Bagginshield, Gimli/Legolas) In which recovery takes time, the dead members of the Company take to watching Gimli as though he’s a soap opera, the living struggle with being left behind, Legolas is confused, Khuzdul is abused, and Thorin is four feet and ten inches of guilt and anger.

    Summary

    Dumbledore doesn't make it in time for Harry's trial, and the outcome is very different. Harry is expelled, his wand snapped.

    But he refuses to give up. And he is done waiting around for Albus Dumbledore to give him information.

    Deciding to take his life into his own hands, Harry asks for training from several Order members, preparing himself to fight Voldemort while the whole wizarding world believes he's helpless and back in the muggle world.

    Meanwhile, his friends are at Hogwarts, tackling their own problems in the form of Dolores Umbridge. Harry hadn't expected the separation to be so difficult - or for a certain mischievous redhead to make the waiting game they'd entered into so very excruciating.

    He might have lost his home in Hogwarts, but with Sirius and Remus around, Harry begins to learn that rebuilding a family isn't as hard as he'd anticipated.

    Summary

    In the original universe, Peter Parker met the symbiont who would become known as Venom after he had possessed others, after his mind had been corrupted by inappropriate hosts and his true purpose lost to insanity and insatiable hunger. If Peter had met the symbiont while it was still intact, its mind clear and its purpose undecided, would he have so easily rejected the symbiont?

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Utterly different take on the Klyntar from the Venom comics, set in the MCU in the time post the first Spider-Man movie and before Infinity War. Featuring a well-meaning dad Tony and mom figure May, along with a precious cinnamon roll Peter and besties Ned and MJ.
