    Summary

    Trolls and humans have been at war for twenty years. The surface of Earth is little more than a massive war zone. Humans have fled to the safety of the sky, where a massive floating kingdom, known as Skaia, has been established. Trolls have gathered in the sprawling underwater metropolis of Alternia. Neither territory is perfect, but years of war have nurtured countless numbers of residents willing to fight for their home.

    Amidst all this is a brother-sister fighter pilot duo from the Nation of Skaia, and a pair of Alternian dissidents. When the four meet, their worlds begin to fall apart, only to be reassembled in the most unexpected ways.

    Summary

    The only thing that Louis could think of when he got shot was that he’d never get to tell Harry he loved him again. He was going to die, in the rain and the mud, amidst gunfire and explosions, and he was never going to get to hold Harry in his arms or kiss him or make love to him ever again.

    Summary

    Ariel would look back, almost a hundred years back, look back to her past and trace her sins and mistakes to that long-ago moment, to that desire to know more, to ask for more than what she was given. Ariel would look back with a thousand words that crowded her tongueless mouth, as the world turned underneath her bleeding feet and wonder to herself, was it truly worth it - all of it - to know what I know now?

    ***

    A radical reinterpretation, deconstruction, and expansion on Hans Christian Andersen's and Disney's The Little Mermaid.

    Summary

    "Just go pick up some Eurotrash from the docks."

    Harvey looked between all three of them with wide eyes and a furrowed brow, tapping the grey ash from his cigarette into a clear ashtray. "Don't tell me you haven't seen 'em. Crawling onto the docks- all fresh off the boat from Ellis island."

    "Well, they're desperate- they'll take anything if it pays more than a cent. You could probably get one to do both jobs."

    Joe looked thoughtful, Pete looked interested, and Andy looked sad. Their personalities could not have been more perfectly outlined in their reactions to the news of masses of hungry-for-work, starving immigrants.

     

    "The docks, eh?"

    Summary

    The old lie: it is sweet and honourable to die for one's fatherland. - Wilfred Owen.

    'He thinks of her eyes, the blueish glow they have whenever she looked at him; the lights of her hair; the shadows within her curls; their secret meetings; the feel of her lips; her smile when he'd asked her to become his wife - the vibrancy of her life soothes the ringing of death in his ears. In truth, he feels it is the only reason he has not lost his mind.'

    A WW1 AU told by different points of view, highlighting the struggles faced in the trenches and on the home front.

    Summary

    Amongst dead eyes attached to dead expressions attached to dead bodies, Levi meets Eren, a shining ray of hope in a hopeless war.

    A story about finding the will to live and dealing with loss. And probably other things because I don't know what I'm going to do with this. I suck at summaries.
