    Summary

    Author's Summary: Twenty years after The Great Purge and the continuing effects of a High Priestess’s curse, Albion is a nation on the brink of collapse. Not even High Chancellor Uther Pendragon’s Compatibility Regime can curb the plummeting population. To add to his troubles, his wayward son, Arthur, makes no disguise of his unwillingness to wed. With good reason. Arthur is secretly leading the Movement, a covert organisation plotting to overthrow the government and return magic to Albion. Not to mention, it’s been foreseen that Arthur’s future, his destiny, is an indomitable union with a warlock—not marriage to the farm-boy matched to him by Uther’s Compatibility Machines.

    Summary

    After a war devastated a majority of the land and its cities, Aether was built; a shining blue city of progress, luxury, and exclusivity. The few people who straggled in from the wasteland made it to the outskirts of Aether only to be met by a mighty electric fence. Now, a colossal divide gapes between the filth of Dreck valley and the extravagant city of lights.

    When Dean Winchester, a sweet talker who is both clever enough to sneak past the fences and charming enough to con his way into the beds of the wealthy, meets Castiel, a lethally trained Sentry charged with the protection of Aether, they are forced to decide between opposing loyalties. Neither expects their alliance to challenge both the brave new world and the old one of ashes.

    Summary

    Since Registration passed on and Sentinels started guarding the streets instead of superheroes, the USA has come to resemble Dystopia more than an united country. A young group of masked teenagers are fighting back the undemocratic and unconstitutional ways, lead by Captain America.

    And Steve Rogers is a handsome, but awkward student leading a double life. He is also head and heels in love with Tony Stark, the son of the government's arms dealer.

    Summary

    Looking at Akashi, Kise realizes, for the first time, that Akashi’s remaining eye is rimmed with red and his lips are just as dry and chapped as his own. He’s seen Aomine like this, too, knows that they all get nosebleeds at random intervals for seemingly no reason. They’re not allowed to dream, and Kise thinks that that’s maybe what is killing them all. He turns his head and looks at his computer monitor, gazing at the fine layer of dust over a dark screen. When he raises his hand and swipes it against the monitor, his palm is streaked with black.

    Casually, Kise wipes his palm against his jeans and pretends that he can’t feel the dust digging into his soul.

    Summary

    "I figure I shouldn’t get so worked up about a blueprint because it’s not like I can do anything with it. I mean, what could I possibly do? Burn everything down? Destroy the wall that separates our world from the outside? Pull a Jaeger and attempt and likely fail to destroy the system? I’m just a bookshop manager. I sell adventures, not participate in them."

    Underneath the twisted reality of Sina, the dome that "protects" humanity, there's a secret organization run by middle aged criminals. Jean sells illegal books until he, some college dropout friends, and a fortune teller named Marco are forced by the circumstances to join that organization and aid in destroying Sina from the inside out, for the sake of freeing humanity. Yeah, you could say Jean is a very, very unlucky guy, but that's just because the Universe loves him.

    Rated T for now because of Bad Words. Rating is gonna go up eventually.

    Summary

    So to the Alpha Man came God’s hand, and in His protection the Alpha Man fell into a deep sleep. The Lord God cradled him as He took one of the Alpha Man’s rib bones and closed its place with the dust of stars and the salt of the sea. He fashioned from the Alpha Man’s rib bone a second in His image, hollow but for love for God and love for the Alpha Man, and that was the omega man. When his eyes opened for the first time the Lord God blew dust from the Earth into his sight and blinded him but to love for God and love for the Alpha Man and He did tether them with dust and salt as sat in the Alpha Man’s wound.

    George doesn’t believe in all that catechism anymore, but in the grand scheme of things, and in Clevedon, it doesn’t matter much.

    This is a really plotty, meta, metaphorical, semi-dystopian-but-following-X-Factor-timeline-and-with-a-happy-ending, crackships-ahoy Alpha/beta/omega fic. Alpha!Harry/omega!George.

    Summary

    Crime dystopia AU. Amidst the ruins of a ghostly North America, four prominent crime families have risen to power in what used to be New York City and is now called Kingsfall. The authorities are on the verge of losing the city to them, and the federal government is resorting to drastic measures to contain the nationwide decay.

    Here the Starks are a family rooted firmly in the law, in justice. However, they've so far proven no match for the four families who are fighting for control: the Tyrells, the Baratheons, the Lannisters, and the mad Targaryens. And as for those Targaryens—no one really knows what they're thinking, but rumor has it that the Targ patriarch's little girl is all grown up and ready to propel her family back into greatness. If you can call an empire built on blood money and deceit 'great', that is.

    In the middle of all this is eighteen-year-old Sansa Stark, caught between family loyalties, increasing bloodshed, and the odd allure of Margaery, the Tyrells' golden girl.

    Turns out that you don't have to dig very deep to get to Hell.

    Summary

    Наш мир через сотню лет, возможно, изменится до неузнаваемости. Магнитные полюса сместятся, моря обмелеют и высохнут, последует ряд техногенных катастроф, и Европа станет пустыней. Люди научатся выживать в таких условиях, ислам - религия, рожденная в песках - станет доминирующей, преобразится, впитав в себя множество верований, и породит в испуганных душах страх перед разрушающими силами. Каждую весну и осень сирокко – ветер, что когда-то лишь нагонял тоску и жалил неосторожных – приходит в средиземную пустыню и разрушает уцелевшее и воссозданное. Чтобы умилостивить сирокко, каждую весну и осень ему приносят жертву. Джаред, глава пустынного города, покупает зеленоглазого раба и готовит его к встрече с безжалостным ветром. Раб должен с наслаждением отдать себя сирокко, и у Джареда для того, чтобы научить непокорного раба, есть всего пять дней.

    Summary

    In a world where humans are now an endangered species and werewolves have taken over, a resistance is forming. When Peter Hale, a high ranking general in one of the most powerful werewolf packs, learns of the resistance, he sends his nephew, Derek, to infiltrate their camp and bring them down from within. Derek is more than up to the task, ready to prove himself to his uncle and their pack. What Derek wasn't expecting was to grow to admire the resilience of the humans and their will to fight and live. And he definitely wasn't expecting to fall for their second in command - the loud, obnoxious, sarcastic, smart, witty, and gorgeous - Stiles Stilinski - or that Stiles might just return his affection. What will happen when Stiles discovers Derek is the very creature he’s been raised to hate? Will Derek betray his own pack to save the human he was never supposed to care for? Could their love be the very thing so desperately needed to bring together two warring factions and end a decades old feud?

    Summary

    “C’mon, c’mon...” Stiles urges Derek closer, hands cupping his neck.

    Derek kisses down his ear to his shoulder, pushing off his threadbare vest to get his mouth on Stiles’ chest. It slips to the ash-covered ground, mingling with the dust and dirt. Stiles makes note of where it lays. Useless as it is for warmth during the nightly chills, it’s something to protect him from the daily waste-storms.
