    Summary

    Vincent's been waiting for German to find the right ladder to climb so he could reach for the stars. In the meantime, the longer German's search takes, the higher the retainer and finder's fee that would be in addition to a future income when he got a new identity. Being a janitor only pays so much, and any gainful part-time jobs only helped so much. Fixers are the gatekeepers of the underworld, and so Vincent asks if there's anything not too onerous that would turn up a bit of extra for him to sock away for a rainy day.

    Summary

    And in that moment, I swear we were infinite.
    ― Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower

    Before they met, they were two separate entities, two separate people but in that moment that they met, something extraordinary happened.

    Summary

    “I’ve been waiting for two weeks for this book to be returned to the library but it still isn’t back so I waited until all the librarians were distracted and I got your address from their computer system, hand over the book.”
    (Via the wonderful awful-aus tumblr, Awful AU #176)

    My friend Dollie loves unilock! I found this prompt a while ago and I thought it would make a perfect unilock AU.

    I took liberties with the prompt, as one does. The more I worked with it, the more it morphed into an alternative how-they-met story in which John is pretty damn smart, Sherlock is pretty damn impressive, and, despite the fact that their interactions are extremely minimal, they fall in love anyway.

    I have no idea where their entirely fictional university is, except that it's obviously in London, where the two of them belong. Any resemblance to an actual London uni campus would be a freaking miracle, to be honest.

    Happy birfday, Dollo! I love you. I hope this puts a smile on your face!

    Summary

    After being held hostage by Garrett Jacob Hobbs' survivalist cult and nearly dying of heat death, Hannibal tries to recover. Will is determined to bring Hobbs to justice, but the stakes against his sanity are high, and Will's instability may be their undoing. Hannibal has been able to keep a lid on Will's fragile psyche before, and had taught him how to keep the demons of his empathy at bay. But Hannibal himself may be less than stable after his near death experience, and the piercing shadows of the devil's horns are set to cage them both.

    Summary

    The simulation, thanks to all of his hypemen, was a total failure. He’d like to thank the academy for this marvellous screw up that was blessed upon him to this day, adding to the list of things he can’t even achieve and will still be compared to for his ‘utter lack of skills, Cadet Kogane could have done better’ to four. Four miserable times he would for sure hear the comparison to the guy who dropped out, far more than a dozen times he’d hear it in the halls, in the classes, by the looks of people’s eyes. It stabbed at his back, thorns of roses gripping at his legs and knifes finding home in his heart.

    Summary

    Free! UA where Rei was part of the original relay team and Makoto becomes the new fourth member of the Iwatobi Swim Club. Follows the structure of the anime going by the subtitles produced by HorribleSubs, but bases back-story more closely on High Speed! and includes references to the FrFr! specials and drama CD content where appropriate.

    I am sorry for the long hiatus(es)! I cannot promise a weekly update, but I want to finish this as soon as I can, so please bear with me!

    To new readers: I had previously revised every chapter in search of inconsistencies, spelling errors, and parts that were in desperate need of improvement, but now they are undergoing yet another revision, this time to make any amendments called for by High Speed! 2 and Free! Starting Days, respectively! Chapters have been revised up to Chapter 55, or Part 5 of Episode 10! Parts 2 and 3 of Episode 8, or Chapters 40 and 41 have been amended and now include extended references to High Speed! 2, with one old, out-of-place anime reference removed to give way to a more relevant one! Stay tuned!

    Summary

    Captured by Pandora, tortured by her lover, and severed from Death's power, Abraham has no choice but to accept the help reluctantly offered by those who ought to hate him most - even though doing so will force him to confront his wrongdoings in ways he's never had to before. But with the threat of an eternal winter looming over Sleepy Hollow, Abraham is not the only one struggling to cope.

    As Abbie wrestles under the weight of a mysterious illness and a dangerous secret, Jenny suffers in silence over her trauma at the hands of a vengeful goddess and the grief of losing a man she was just beginning to love. Ichabod, meanwhile, feels helpless as he watches two of the most important people in his life begin to unravel at the seams.

    Over time, however, Abraham will learn that there is more to Death than just killing, and together, he and Team Witness come to realize that they each have the power within themselves to make a difference in each other's lives. (And maybe the power to save the world, too.)
