    Summary

    Wishing to back out of her suicide attempt only after she hit the ground, the fallen human finds that she is unable to move. When a voice offers to save her for a price, she is too terrified of the darkness to do anything but accept. At first the voice seems helpful, promising to guide her out of the Underground so that she can see the sun again. But as time goes on and her control over her own body begins to slip away, she is forced to face the horrible truth of what she has allowed herself to become. Now she seeks the answer to but one question: can a soulless person save the timeline from shattering?

    Summary

    A year after Ellie saved the monster world from tyranny, the citizens of the world were living in peace with their Kings and Queens, including, but not limited to, King Meade skipping the hypnotism and Ethan treating Nathan less like a slave and more like as close to a person as a monster can get.
    But you can't have your happily-ever-after quite yet.
    Recently, there's been a lot of whispers about something in the legends. A mysterious seventh kingdom, one that was forgotten long ago.
    Ethan has been notified and security has been increased quite a bit, including the implementation of cameras in the other kingdoms, radios, e-mail services, and guards outside all of the Gates. You can't be too careful.
    The one thing not increased was internal security.
    Who's going to except an attack from the inside a peaceful kingdom?
    Obviously no one.

    Summary

    "We'll show them," Kuina breathes, wiping blood from the corner of her mouth as she looks to her sister. "Girls can be swordsmen too."

    Zahra nods dutifully, holding her tongue between a jaw clenched tight enough to crack; I think I’m boy, she wants to say - he wants to say, but doesn't, feeling sick as his stomach tightens. Traitor, it seems to taunt, his body a riot against him, traitor, traitor, you're a traitor, she just wants you to understand, she just wants you to be a girl.

    Summary

    She planted a little seed in Jane’s head because, well, objects of magic have rules. Like her mother’s staff, one that she’s never allowed to touch. That one’s liable to transfer allegiance depending on which holder is strongest, and it’s full of darkness. Not that she’s stronger than Mother. (She can’t be, because—)

    This one? A wand infused with light, with good, and that means it cannot simply be taken against the holder’s will. In order to transfer hands there has to be genuine care from the taker towards the holder…

    Mal voices the thought that everything now depends on… “But you—is it that you won’t take it from me, or that you can’t?”

    ::

    AU ending, because segregating the worst villains as prisoners does not logically look like a half-humorous cohort of “has-beens”.

    Summary

    “He’s not dead,” Obaachan said. Keith turned his face fractionally towards her. “I would know if he were dead.” There was a sneer of contempt, of anger, just beneath her voice. Pilot error, she seemed to scoff between her words. As though Shiro hadn’t been the best pilot Galaxy Garrison had ever produced. He felt the same rage simmering below his skin, tempered only by the numbness that came with Shiro’s absence.

    When Keith is flung from the portal, on a dying lion in the middle of a Glara controlled sector, he is left with few supplies and few choices on how to survive, and only old memories to keep him company.

    At the same time, Shiro struggles to pull himself together with the pieces scattered across the universe.

    Summary

    This work is a mix of MCU canon, Norse myth, and my own imagination. The movies show us so little of the past, and this story contains my random imaginings and mythological inspirations to create a possible past.

    I did go with Norse myth for the names of Loki's birth parents—Farbauti is his father, and Laufey is his mother. In the myths, Loki chose to use his mother's name for his last name (Laufeyson) due to childhood difficulties with his father, which works just as well in the MCU. It's always frustrated me that the writers at Marvel dropped the ball on this detail, so I am setting things to rights in this story.
