    Summary

    After Arya's life is shattered by a string of tragedies in her early twenties she moves in with her sister. There's some kind of sickness moving south from the wall which has come, at last to Winterfell just as a charming new neighbor with pale dead eyes moves in next door.

    This story is very influenced by 80s horror, especially The Lost Boys, Fright Night, and An American Werewolf in London.

    Look, its pretty goddamn ridiculous. I just hope it's fun to read.

    Summary

    She caught the eye of a guy in the back corner completely by accident; she’d seen him before, always hovering at the edge of the crowd and wearing that same ugly plaid jacket. He smiled at her and then just as quickly stopped, the expression passing over his face like a cloud through the sky.

    Someone was going to throw a bottle. She could feel it.

    Summary

    It begins at an award show. Dean Winchester is a well-known actor, standing before a crowd with Charlie at his side. The world looks at him and sees someone that has everything. The fame, the fortune, the life. They don't see the loss or what he refuses to tell. Then Charlie, his manager, sets up an interview with a journalist that seems to know how to get at the truth. It seems to take no time before Dean is sharing more than he intended, and Benny is ready to capture it all on camera. Because some stories just must be told.

    Summary

    A collection of ficlets and snippets inspired by Tumblr and #xmentales chat.

    So far: Charles is a cat or a Renaissance-era muse or a professor or an imprisoned high-level telepath or a young man of the senatorial class in Rome or an Oceanid. Meanwhile, Erik is sick or a talented but struggling painter or a graduate student or a spy searching for his missing telepath or a former gladiator-turned-slave or a pirate. Also they are both seahorses. Or fae. Or gods. Or platypuses. Or genetically-modified fruit. Or space travelers. Or on a date. And there's one with Wesley Gibson and Brandon Sullivan. And one with Wesley again, but also Max, Simon, and Brian. And a couple of A/O snippets, one on a boat and one in a bedroom.

    Summary

    The year is 1985. Humans and mutants have lived together for a hundred years and now co-exist peacefully.

    That is, outside of high school. Charles Xavier happens to be an ordinary human being, but that's not the worst of his troubles. He's a true geek, with so few friends he could count them on two fingers, and he also happens to be the school's favourite victim.

    Erik has always looked down upon humans without any powers, thinking he is superior to them.

    Naturally, he's not pleased at all when for some unknown reason, Charles latches onto him after only one lesson of group work as though they were the best of friends.
