    Summary

    There are some great quick guides to HTML on A03. This is not one of them - it is a comprehensive guide, dividing all of the available tags into the following categories:

    1. Text Formatting (in-line HTML)
    2. Page Formatting (block HTML)
    3. Tables and Lists
    4. Links and Images

    Each tag will have - at a minimum - a link to the w3schools page about it (so you can learn more), a code example, and the result of the code example.

    It will also introduce tag attributes, ways to further refine formatting, for a few simple - but widely applicable - cases.

    Summary

    'Standard Island'.

    That is her destination. Assigned to her by a certain somebody. Working in conjunction with someone else alongside her ability Time Machine. For the sake of the past and future. It is a grim assignment, one she prefers not to linger on. Over-thinking won't make the situation any less esoteric, let alone pleasant. She leaves for the island tomorrow. She has no doubt she won't ever return to her home. Standard Island is her final destination.

    And yet, for the sake of them, H.G. Wells agreed, head held high and fierce determination burning her heart to ash.

    Thus, the woman responsible for her 'assignment' makes an offer too tempting to refuse.

    Summary

    [Podfic of writingfromtheshadows's work Equivalent Exchange]

     

    Without the Katsuki line to protect and maintain the laws of magic, Great Mages have become so few and far between that many believe the age of magic is coming to an end. However, when he comes across a young man weaving tales with figures of fire, Viktor begins to wonder if magic is truly dead, or if it lives on in the body of the storyteller with warm brown eyes.

    Summary

    “I like this being our dirty little secret. Besides, you and I both know that the walls here are very, very thin,” Dazai had joked. It was an incisive remark and he definitely meant for it to be exactly that. And normally, it was a remark that would’ve earned him a sharp elbow in the gut as a result. But the unspoken addendum, thinly veiled in the low husk of his tone, is what saved him, and finally made Yosano agree to come tonight.

    'And if you let me have my way, I promise you won’t be able to keep quiet, darling.'

    Or

    Dazai and Yosano decide to quit messing around and finally do this thing for real.

    Whatever Yosano had expected to come out of tonight, it wasn’t to spend a night with a Port Mafia executive.
    Not like she minded.
