    Summary

    "'Ah, that's Katya for you. Ever since she married her little Polish bride, she can't stand to even hear of the business.' Braginski lifted his glass of wine to his mouth before he spoke again. 'Natasha, however, is wonderful. She just came back from finishing school, and it's already as though someone has given my father back that... 'spark' she's been missing.'

    'How old is Natalia now? She was only seven, the last time I saw her.' His father asked.

    'She just turned fourteen.' Braginski smiled, the way Alfred's father smiled, as if he could see the stacks of bills he would trade his little sister for. Alfred wondered if that was why Braginski was so comfortable; perhaps any money he spent on Alfred would come right back into his pocket."

    Summary

    In a world where Omegas are treated as worse than even second class citizens, Cas has managed to survive living in "The District". The District is where all umated Omegas, and those without guardians are sent to live. It's a slum where they are easily forgotten. Crime and prostitution abound there. After being tossed out in his first heat, Cas is taken in by a great aunt who lived just long enough for him to secure a teaching degree. After her death he was sent to The District. He avoids aggressive Alphas that would force him into prostitution or claim him against his will. At 40, he doubts he'll ever find his true mate.

    Dean is a successful Alpha unlike most others. He respects everyone, but he has held out for years in hopes of finding his true mate. By age 37 he has all but given up, so when he meets a pretty Beta while out shopping and she asks him out, he says yes. He just wants to be happy for once in his life.

    When their paths cross, they realize they've finally found their true mate, but someone else says they have a claim on Cas, and things are about to get messy. In order to save Cas once and for all, Dean has to save all Omegas.

As it turned out, you became Lelouch’s controller and together, the two of you managed to uncover a deadly secret. A secret that seemed to have its reaches far up in the hierarchy of power. A secret that people would kill for….

    Summary

    There are any number of worlds, each as real as the last, and in each the nature of reality is somewhat different from all the others. There's a world where trees walk and stones speak. There's a world where there are only twenty souls to go around and every thinking creature has to share. There's a world where every human is only one small part of a whole.

    There's a world where stars fall to the earth, and when they land are neither stone nor fire.

     

    Very loosely inspired by the book/movie Stardust by Neil Gaiman. Rating and tags may change as the story progresses.

    Summary

    Enjolras' feelings towards Grantaire were complicated and Enjolras had absolutely no time for complicated in his life, so he never dwelled on what went through him when he could feel Grantaire's eyes on him, the few times their fingers had accidentally brushed while working or what he had felt the last time Grantaire had gotten hurt on a mission.

    Summary

    It's 2073 and the Ghosts have a tough time ahead, what with the threat of the Valkyries, a team specifically designed to hunt them down. In a crapsack world where family is meaningless and love is a thing of the past, each day that Jack survives is a victory. Besides, he'd rather have ammo and someone to watch his six than a kiss. Rated M for cursing, violence and adult stuff.

Mutants have become Humanity's last chance for survival, one that is taken grudgingly. Magneto now rules over a divided world, along side his most elite Mutants, who's powers provide the life saving vaccine the Human depend on. But storm clouds gather and the uneasy truce between the survivors is tested to a breaking point.

    Wolverine, one of the Mutant Elite, is sent out to deal with a band of trouble makers who have been stealing shipments of Beast's life saving vaccine.

    Summary

    So we just hold on fast / Acknowledge the past / As lessons exquisitely crafted / Painstakingly drafted / To carve us as instruments / That play the music of life.

    Once, there was a revolution that started for the sake of one man. But revolutions do not end after a day; a country could not be rebuilt based on changing a single law.

    Still, this revolution is led by those who have looked upon history and learned from it; by those who looked upon the faces of those who suffered and said, no more. And so change comes: slow, halting, meeting with obstacles every turn, but utterly inexorable.

    Sequel to all sinners crawl, covering the 18 years that passed between the ending of the fic and Epilogue 2. Please don’t read this before reading all sinners crawl, because nothing will make sense. Chapters will be post once a week, on Sunday.
