    Summary

    «Come facevi a sapere... che sarei stato io ad occupare questo letto?» volle sapere l'orco.
    «Perché l'ho previsto. Ho avuto un sogno premonitore la notte stessa in cui sono arrivato qui» spiegò con assoluta nonchalance l'umano «Ho visto che il mio compagno sarebbe stato l'ultimo ad arrivare e che sarebbe stato qualcuno... che attirava l'attenzione» s'interruppe e sorrise «Ti ho riconosciuto subito anche se nel sogno non mi sei apparso».
    «È per questo che mi hai fatto cenno di sedermi con te?» chiese ancora Thrall. Adesso iniziava a capire tutto.
    «Esatto. Ti avevo riservato il posto» dichiarò soddisfatto Khadgar.

    Summary

    All things considered, Lyn Trevelyan has every reason to be anxious about attending her field's most high-profile conference this year. She's no longer a graduate student and is attending as a full-fledged PhD, she's not at all sure how her research presentation critiquing video game narrative structure is going to be received, and - best of all - she has a make-or-break interview for her dream job at Holy Flame University in Haven. Her friends may be committed to making sure she stops worrying and has a good time the night before the big event, but Lyn's about to find out that some stories - whether video game or "real life" - rely on painfully awkward twists.

    The "DA:Inquisition, but everyone's an academic studying media" AU that's basically just a lot of meta in-jokes and fandom references that may only amuse the author.

    Summary

    It’s a new year, a new semester. Looking out across the classroom, taking in the bright-eyed students in their winter gear, the crowded desks, the aisles choked with backpacks and bags, Luke can’t help but feel that it’s going to be a good year.

    “Welcome to Transformative Journeys: Pilgrimage and Practice in Global Buddhisms,” he says, with a smile. “I’m Professor Amidala-Lars."

    Summary

    Hux prided himself on being a man who managed to have interests outside of the military. His newest interest; history so old that many thought it useless in the modern age. And he could have been quite content, reading articles and books on ancient cultures if it wasn't for Kylo Ren, who seemed to have made it his goal to inject himself into Hux's academic pursuits when he wasn't destroying the ship through his apparent self-destructive tendencies.

    Summary

    Derek Hale, Stiles thought, indignant, was a goddamned scholiastic menace.

    In which tenure-track Professor Derek Hale is polite and friendly to Stiles Stilinski, ABD, every year at the academic conference they both attend; and Stiles tries to be contented with pining after him—until after one night at a bar, far too many doubles, and some injudicious texting, thanks to his total inability to know when to stop talking, Stiles just may have ruined everything.

    Snippets of Eggsy’s life in the midst of vaguely scientific fuckery.

    Summary

    Tony Stark: billionaire playboy philanthropist engineer. Also, terror professor. Sanity questionable. Genius intellect undoubted. Relevant quote: "Genius, madness! The only difference between them is success!"

    Steve Rogers: Beefcake American History professor. Stern, uptight, but kind. Rumors suggest war veteran. Makes muffins for people in infirmary. What even.

    An Academia AU from whatever I read in Marvel Comics and watched from Marvel.
    Because a college dynamic is the most volatile there is.

    Hawke stares at the three-word phrase that’s going to ruin his day, his week and – possibly – his life, inscribed in large, square letters on the otherwise pristine whiteboard: science vs magic.

    He’s going to need more coffee.
