    Summary

    The problem with Hermann—aside from the obvious factor of their being Mortal Enemies, but both he and Newt tended to gloss over that—was that he was nowhere near as loose with following the Rules as Newt, nowhere near as... lax in respecting authority. (Though, Newt supposed, that was for the better; Newt’s unsquashable rebellious streak was what led him to Fall, after all.) Hermann was too fixated on impressing the Higher-Ups and getting pats on the head for it. And normally, Newt would put up with it, maybe prod a bit of fun at it and Hermann’s father, who was definitely in the running for Absentee Parent of Existence Award, but this was the end of the world they were talking about here. “Dude,” he said, empathetically. “Come on.”

    Hermann fidgeted some more. Then he began to visibly Fret.

    “I know you’d miss me,” Newt said.

     

    (OR: inevitable PR/GO fusion wherein hermann is a terrible angel, newt is a terrible demon, and the end of the world is a little more sci-fi than either of their sides anticipated)

    Summary

    Hermann and Newt live in a world ruled by words. True love is found through a shared "Core Lingua" or Core language that only two people can share and fully understand. But things prove difficult if one of them has made a Vow to give up speaking until the war is finally over.

    An original soulmate AU based on language.

    Summary

    "I would love to accompany you." Elias offered him a wonderfully warm smile. "I know a Thai restaurant in the center of London that would be absolutely perfect."

    "Ah, the center of London, you say?" Peter was starting to look more and more like a fresh croissant—flaky as hell.

    Elias went to put his coat on, half-expecting Peter to vanish again as he was so fond of doing. But instead he helped Elias with his coat, like a gentleman, which was unsettling on many levels. Of course, Elias couldn’t let him catch on to that. "Thank you, dearest. I trust the location won't be a problem for you?"

    "For you, anything," Peter said with a smile, almost shy. "Shall we?"

    Playing into Elias' hands again. But looking at his expression, the delicate blush on Peter’s cheeks—were they really just playing?

    Summary

    There is an eye watching over us, listeners. It hangs above in the moonless sky—yes i know, listeners, that thing up there, that looks like the moon, but that is not the moon—and the eye does not blink. It does not look outward,, no, this is the eye that views our interior, our dreams, the deep cracks and crevices of our souls where we hide our darkest fears. It watches. And it records.
    And it’s British! Oh, it’s great to see that the Night Vale Tourism Board initiatives are working and that visitors aren’t being put off by our, ahem, TOTALLY NORMAL mortality rate.

    But anyway. To our new friend: Welcome… to Night Vale.

    (Or: fear, love, threats, and small towns where the apocalypse is the fixed point around which life turns)
