    Summary

    War wounds deeper than most men have the strength to heal. To give himself a fighting chance against those bleeding war wounds, Sam takes a summer job as a ranger in a national forest. Patrolling his designated areas and keeping an eye out for fires, campers, and wildlife replace his day job and therapy sessions. His only companions out in the semi-wilderness are the two other faceless rangers on the other side of his walkie-talkie, his letters from home, and his scars.

    Albert Rosenfield, a moody punk on a bench, wouldn't expect anyone to ask for his help. Especially a doe-eyed out-of-towner.

    Summary

    Thanks to the Plot Device Fairy (aka Shadi, aka Number One on Yami's Shit List), Yugi and friends encounter their badfic stand-ins, get roped into (among other things) a mermaid (er, merMAN) AU, and must battle the various and sundry evils of badly written fan fiction in their quest to find the ultimate power of the multiverse: the Millennium Spork.

    Or, you know, just an excuse to write everyone wildly sarcastic and meta, and poke fun at some of the fic that has tried to melt my brain over the years.

    Whichever.

    Summary

    It wasn't her fault that she wanted to go on a road trip, and it most definitely is not her fault when Mao turns to her and presses his lips to her own. It can't be when she'd always called him a friend. "Friends," she says as the headlights come closer until she can't see anything and her breathing's stopped.

    But she has to admit, it's been bittersweet.

    From the pink leather jacket Hokke had given her, Makoto's famous waffles, Subaru's antics, especially Mao's warm hugs. It was a good run.

    So maybe the road trip was her fault, but Mao's kiss was definitely not. And maybe he knows this too, because now he's holding her body tight and crying.
    ~
    Mao invites Anzu to stay with him during the summer in a small town. It was only supposed to be the summer, but after something comes up she's forced to stay longer, and maybe it's for the better.

    She meets the biker gang, Trickstar, and is dragged in the middle of a turf war with fine. School is interesting, filled with some of the most interesting people she's met. And even back at home, with Ritsu throwing things at her and Mao fussing, maybe this town isn't all bad.

    Even if her teenage life gets in her way.

    Summary

    adj. (so͞o′pər-năch′ər-əl). Of or relating to existence outside the natural world.

    Mako, the mountain witch, really needs to improve his magic skills, but he can't do that without a familiar. He's expecting his familiar to be something fierce, something ferocious and fearsome. Maybe a boar, a giant black dog, or maybe even an eagle? Well, guess what, Mako, it ain't gonna be any of those animals.

    ((I haven't really planned any huge plot for this fic yet, but it will come to me at some point. I just had to write the premise, because I love it a lot))

    Summary

    “What’s up with you and Barbie? She looks like you just promised her the sun, moon, stars, and fresh produce for life.” Katya eyes Trixie, already working on corrections with her red pen at her desk. She’s biting her bottom lip like she does.

    “Don’t worry about it, maybe I did.” Ginger lights her pipe and puffs on it a few times as she scans Katya’s face.

    “Don’t get into anything you can’t get out of,” Ginger mumbles. Katya rolls her eyes.

    Summary

    The harmonic sounds of guitars and singing silver voices becoming one waded down the road like they were meant to be heard by him. He took a drag of his cigarette and let a knowing smile form on his face. He removed his sunglasses from his face and dragged them up onto his head to hold his hair back. It was longer now, long enough to be tied back and braided, something he wished he had done. He took a deep breath and propped his guitar back onto his back, picking up his sole suitcase afterward.

     

    The suitcase held his very essence and existence now.

    Summary

    Disclaimer: first person narrator and lots of dialogue.

    Armie Hux comes from Northern Ireland to London to enlist in the army and start from the lower ranks. He wants to prove his father, Lieutenant Colonel Brendol Hux that he can earn an officer's position the hard way.

    While in London he stays with Phil Asma, a sergeant under his father's command. One Saturday night, to celebrate the visit of a bunch of colleagues and that Armie is being drafted next Monday, they take the scaredy small-town boy to a club in Soho, where he meets Lola.

    And Armie is not dumb but he can't undestand why she walked like a woman but talked like a man.

    Inspired by the song "Lola", by The Kinks.

    Summary

    “Hey.”
    Phil reaches over the counter. Leaning one elbow on it, he puts a finger underneath Dan’s chin, gently tilts his head back up. Dan tries not to tremble. He darts his eyes up and they catch at his lips, stay there as he speaks. (He wants to taste them so bad.)
    “I don’t know what kind of people you’re friends with,” he starts, “but if they aren’t nice to you, maybe you should consider switching them out for some that are.”

    or: it's 1978, everything is a bad influence, catholicism makes you a bit sad sometimes and dan finds the answer to all his questions

    Summary

    For David, falling in love with the beautiful girl downstairs was never meant to be this complicated.

    Unfortunately, he'd never counted on the little boy in the stairwell, the weird kids down the hall, the supposed lesbians next door... or the fact that literally everyone thinks he's gay.

    {1970s Gwenvid AU loosely based off directium's teenage Dadvid AU. Credit for the last names Greenwood and Santos goes to Forestwater. Apologies for not adding this sooner!}

    Summary

    New York in the 1970s, when the trains didn't run on time, struggling artists could make do in a walk-up, and the Son of Sam terrorized the city. Maybe not the perfect place for anyone or anything, but it might be the only place where some like-minded oddballs could play their part as the rock scene mutated into something else entirely. New Wave AU inspired by the Talking Heads; Nagamas giftfic for tumblr user sshining.
