    Summary

    Karkat Vantas is dead, which means he won't be graduating college. He's dead, he's pissed, and he's being followed by some tries-too-hard-to-be-helpful jackass with blond hair and a shitty attitude.

    Dave Strider has been dead for quite some time. He's resigned himself to a liminal existence, and takes it upon himself to guide any lost spirits he happens across.

    Rose Lalonde is a ghost-spotting paranormal enthusiast. Along with her girlfriend, she plans on documenting the happenings of the Space Between, a realm where unsettled spirits go to ponder what binds them to this world.

    Kanaya Maryam, girlfriend of Rose Lalonde, just wants to help guide her childhood friend to the afterlife. Of course, the presence of soul-devouring demons might complicate this a little...

    Summary

    Sansa Stark is a troubled young woman who wants to disappear from the face of the earth. After boarding the train to London and sleeping rough for several days, she meets Petyr in the King's Landing area, a borderline manic nutcase who comes at her with such overshooting care and kindness that it instantly invokes thoughts of flight. Although the equivalent of a human boomerang (Sansa just can't get rid of him), Petyr really has the best of intentions. Slowly Sansa warms up to him, but why does she and everybody else she meets in King's Landing seem to be unable to leave this doomed, depressing place?

    An "afterlife" fic in which purgatory is not just a place of fire and brimstones but an AU set in modern times, everyone is trapped in his own kind of personal hell, and Sansa has to find a way to get herself and Petyr out of here.

    Summary

    The first thing Jungkook learned was that dreaming is the mid-way point between living and death. It was the human spirit's way of dipping its toes into insubstantiality. A practice round in anticipation of the final, inevitable unravel. At the onset of birth, every body was dying, just at different velocities.

    Theoretically, once gone, nobody could return.

    But Jungkook is a revenant. An exception. A die-er and comeback-er.

    Summary

    After meeting the wrong end of a blade, Gerard wakes up in a mysterious realm called the Under. He's surrounded by demons who all seem to think he's something special, but none of them will answer his questions. They reveal nothing except the fact that he died too soon. The only person willing to help is Frank, his self-appointed guide, who swears he can bring Gerard home. He escorts Gerard across the Under, and together they confront enemies, unexpected feelings, and secrets of the darkest kind.

    In the end, all it takes is one misplaced soul to bring worlds crashing down.

    “The most important thing to take away from this is that you’re dead,” Saperstein said, waving his hand towards the wall. Everything’s great! was written in curly script.

    Summary

    Joan declares, "I will not waste my time instructing a spoiled city girl with a pretty concept which she will drop the moment her blouse rips."

    "I don’t quit," says Angelica evenly. She wants to grab this child – no, this woman, Angelica keeps forgetting that she herself is physically only twenty-two now – by the shoulders and shake her until she understands that Angelica Schuyler-Church does not get rejected. Angelica’s had the most powerful men in the Western world eating out of the palm of her hand. A request for swordfighting lessons from the vacationing commander of her good friend should not encounter resistance. "I desire to learn to defend myself."

    "What you desire is of no interest to me," Joan retorts, tucking an errant curl behind her ear and returning her gaze to the illuminated scroll smoothed over her thigh.
