    Summary

    After his application to the doctoral program was rejected due to his incomplete entrance essay, Yuuri Katsuki scores a job running a small local bookstore. Sure, it’s not his dream but it’s simple with few surprises and little stress. That is until a world renowned Shakespearean Scholar, Dr. Viktor Nikiforov, stops in one day and reminds Yuuri just why he applied in the first place. When Viktor happens upon an old uncompleted paper Yuuri had been working on, he realizes just what a genius Yuuri is, and vows to help him not only get in, but graduate with top honors. However, just being Yuuri’s mentor isn’t really what Viktor had in mind.

    Summary

    "There are rules, Nimona.”

    “What do you mean, there are rules?” Nimona throws her hands up in exasperation. Her face is twisted into it’s ‘I do not understand these morals of which you speak’ scowl. “If it’s already happened to you, why would you follow the rules? And besides, isn’t that the whole point of tenure? That you don’t have to follow the rules, anymore?”

    or

    That modern academia AU where Nimona doesn't understand why Professor Blackheart cares about silly things like departmental regulations or 'right and wrong' because he has rules that he lives by or some boring nonsense. Nimona really doesn't know why he and Professor Goldenloin haven't managed to pull their heads out of their asses and hook up, already. Does she have to do everything around here?

    Summary

    On his second semester at the University of Scildan, Professor Rogers was already known to the graduate students in Bucky’s cohort to be a confrontational asshole. So Bucky really wasn’t looking forward to TAing for some young, entitled punk in one of his last semesters in academia—in an lower division class, no less—until he met the punk himself.

    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

    “Luke?” Poe calls, the sound of the front door rattling shut accompanying him. “You upstairs?”

    Luke opens his eyes, glancing out the office door, but just raises his voice slightly. He’s in the middle of a sentence and the voice-to-text recorder’s still going — he’s going to lose the thread if he stops now.

    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

    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.

    Summary

    *On hiatus, not currently being updated*

    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.
