    Summary

    AU/Continuation, unavoidable spoilers. The story didn't end when the two finally got together. When dark forces emerge from the depths to threaten mankind, one will learn that she is more than who or what she thought she was. For when it was said, years ago, that one might encounter something not quite human at twilight, all present might be forgiven for not considering that the entity in question might be oneself. OC x natural born Pacific!Iowa

    Summary

    "'Death did not hold the name then that he holds now.'"

    In Mip's most notorious life prison, Death appears in a strange disguise.

    It had seemed for a while that the plan would work: a bold conspiracy by a group of idealistic prisoners and sympathetic guards to stop abuse at Mercy Prison. Then betrayal occurs, and Tyrrell finds himself in a new life prison, with new rules to be learned. No longer is he in a position of leadership; now he is surrounded by men who question his most fundamental values.

    He has new allies as well: fellow prisoners who like what they see in him, a healer who refuses to accept current conditions, and guards who may or may not provide the help that the prisoners desperately need. But Hell's messenger, Death, visits Compassion Prison, keeping his face hidden until it is almost too late for Tyrrell to recognize his touch.

    Boilerplate warning for all my stories.

    Summary

    The Lions have not had the best track record as a hockey team, but junior James Potter is determined to lead his team to victory. At least he has the support of his friends at his back, who show up every game, until one unfortunate day when none other than Lily Evans make an appearance. As a past figure skater, she naturally dislikes James and any other hockey players, who are smelly, ruin the ice, and take valuable practice time for them. Still...for reasons unexplained, Evans continues to show up to James' games.

    Summary

    "I am thinking it's a sign, that the freckles in our eyes are mirror images. And when we kiss they're perfectly aligned." I sang softly, nearly overpowered by the sound of my guitar. I was rusty, but all in all I didn't think it sounded too terrible. I didn't dare glance up to see what my boys thought of it. "And I have to speculate, that God himself did make us into corresponding shapes. Like puzzle pieces from the clay. And true, it may seem like a stretch. But it's thoughts like this that catch my troubled head when you're away. When I am missing you to death."

    I had been stoic and strong through this whole thing. I had to, I wanted to for the sake of the men I loved. They needed an anchor, and I was capable. But playing one of Dan's favorite songs now hit me so painfully hard that I was afraid I would just lose it right then and there. I got the strong sense that this would be the last time.

    Summary

    Kissing Liam Payne has made Niall Horan feel more daring. It’s time to finally use that fake ID, and Niall’s ready to skip school, at least once.

    Kissing Liam has also made things more complicated. How can Niall and Liam date when nobody knows they’re together? Should they tell their friends? What about prom? (Oh, and what counts as sex, and how do you know when you’re ready for it, and is it really a good idea to share a tent with your hot boyfriend?)

    And then there’s the question that runs through it all, the one Niall wonders about the most: how should he say the words he keeps practicing in his head?

    With his journal by his side, Niall’s going to figure it out.

    Summary

    In some ways, Harry felt like Louis was his older sibling as much as Gemma was. He certainly showed just as much affection as Gemma did. Whenever Harry would succeed in something they knew was difficult, both Gemma and Louis would celebrate by placing a loud, smacking kiss on Harry’s forehead.

    As they got older, Gemma pulled back her affections. She was tired of her brother constantly hanging around, and she found ways to elude him. Harry couldn’t blame her, really. The hardest part for him, though, was not being able to be around Louis as often.

    Louis never withdrew his physical affection like Gemma did, though. He continued giving Harry kisses on his forehead, much the same way he did with the ever growing number of younger sisters he had at home, to say hello and goodbye. Harry had come to rely on it. Gemma would bid him hello and goodbye with a soft smack on the side of his head, and Louis would kiss him wherever her hand had landed.

    Or the one where Harry was always Louis' best friend's younger brother...until they grow up and once innocent forms of affection come to mean a little bit more.

    Summary

    When Liam, an EMT, signs up to volunteer at the local animal shelter, he doesn't expect to get attached to the animals. Zayn doesn't expect to get attached, either, and when a split decision has to be made but Liam doesn't have the time to care for an animal, Zayn adopts him. Simultaneously, Zayn becomes the guardian of his younger sister Waliyha, and with college, work, and the necessary function of sleep, co-parenting has never been seen on such a grand scale. Featuring uncomfortable crushes, knee-jerk reactions, and too much thinking.

    Mostly a big a ball of fluff.

    Summary

    I'm setting this story in the Fascist Dystopia that I know best, which is Sinclair Lewis' prescient book, It Can't Happen Here. If I do this thing right, I'll add in enough details that you don't need to have read the book to understand the story.

    Basically, the story is this: A Fascist gets elected as President of the US. One of his associates knows of Tony's homosexuality and alcoholism, and uses those to pressure him to work for the Administration. While in Washington, Tony meets Loki. Loki is a trans-character (although in the context of the time this story takes place, it's not completely understood that way). She's working as a sex-worker, victimized by members of the Fascist government. Tony takes her away from that, and gives her a new life as his partner. They take in an orphan, Peter Parker, and make a family for themselves.

    Tony finally manages to escape himself. In exile in Mexico, he tells the story of his past, and nerves himself to go back and rescue his family.
