    Summary

    “Are you sure you’re willing to do this?”

    Aizawa barely recognized his own voice, ashen in the grasp of a stormy summer night.

    Under the glare of his living room lights, Toshinori’s leathery face held a smile. A ghost from times long gone.

    He stirred a cube of sugar into his coffee, fingers bony and shaking around his mug.

    “If there is one good thing I can do for this child, as dangerous as he is… then it will be this.”

    Aizawa knew, once the words fell from his comrade’s mouth—a more solid declaration than the deaths he’d witnessed—that there would be no changing his mind.

    [ In which Toshinori Yagi, a shadow of his former self, raises an orphaned Izuku as his disciple... with a little bit of a twist. ]

    Summary

    Exeter, 1762: a ten-year-old Simcoe is, well, just as you would imagine a ten-year-old Simcoe who dislikes school and dreams of becoming a famous general to be... Or is he?

    For all those reading "The Colonel's Portrait", this one-shot features the wig-incident referred to by Simcoe in chapter 14, in which he recounts his childhood misdeeds, in case you are curious.

    Summary

    In an unfamiliar familiar place, Roxas finds familiar unfamiliar faces. Whatever he'd thought to find upon returning to Sora, it wasn't what he got. Faced with something he'd known all along that was entirely new, the story Roxas had thought was over had only passed into the next chapter.
    Having chosen to vanish forever, Xion comes face-to-face with a reality she wasn't prepared for. In her search for a sense of self beyond what had been borrowed, she finds an unexpected and unpredictable ally. With the help of friends, she seeks something she'd never considered she'd be allowed to find.
    Ten years earlier Ventus opens his eyes on a beach and discovers he isn't as alone as he'd thought, and the person there with him isn't exactly the person he thought he'd known.
    And above all else, Sora's heart is a place with its own kind of magic.
    Canon divergent as of D23, hell yes. Includes elements from the BBS novel adaptations that are not found in the game canon. Canon-adjacent. Two stories for the price of one! Increasingly implied VenVan.

    Summary

    'I like your kitchen,' Pyon said. She was annoyed with herself for being so boring and saying the same things. She was usually much better at speaking.

    But when she was with Cheadle -- alone with Cheadle -- she suddenly ran out of words.

    'You're very pretty,' Cheadle said out of nowhere. She had her back to Pyon, cutting a lemon.

    'Thank you!' Pyon said. 'So are you.' She played with her curled hair.

    Cheadle turned and smiled. Her blue eyes were so soft and kind, and her freckled nose wrinkled up with the smile. Pyon had a sudden urge to kiss her.

    Summary

    Some dreams we have are nothing else but dreams,
    Unnatural and full of contradictions;
    Yet others of our most romantic schemes
    Are something more than fictions.
    – Thomas Hood, The Haunted House, Part I

    One is the last daughter of a dead planet, trapped in the Phantom Zone. The other is the sole prince of a decimated kingdom, adrift in the Well of Stars.

    They both dream... and in those dreams, they meet.

    Summary

    Alec is standing suspiciously casually across from her room, as if he'd been about to knock on her door but had instead taken a few steps back when he'd heard her approach. He's acting shifty, his eyes darting around and there's a distinct tension to his shoulders. Something is definitely up.

    Summary

    Tsumugi Shirogane isn't a person. Her role in life is to play the side character, only observing the protagonists passively. It was a life she was content with. At least, that's what she told herself.

    Rantarou Amami holds much of his values in his family. That would be fine had he not been floating aimlessly, wondering what he truly wanted to do with his life when he had spent all his time answering that for twelve other people.

    Miu Iruma is a young inventor, nothing more, nothing less. Who is she, if not an inventor? Is she even an inventor? She isn't sure she wants to find out.

    Kokichi Ouma describes himself as an enigma and intends to keep it that way. No one could hurt him if he stayed wrapped in his cocoon of lies. It was better this way, safer, more fun. But he knew he was lying even to himself.

    Four people, four identities, four secrets, four lives, all about to be connected in ways none of them could have ever predicted.

    “A true friend is someone who will always love you—the imperfect, the confused, the wrong you—because that is what people are supposed to do.”

    Summary

    A peek into a topsy-turvy universe where Faith is Called a whole three years before Buffy or Kendra, Hank and Joyce get divorced earlier than they do in canon, Buffy stays with Hank (who is battling his own demons--heh) instead of moving across the country to live in New York with her mother, and the closing of the Sunnydale Hellmouth a whole 7 years earlier leads the gang (minus Buffy, of course) to set up shop in Los Angeles.

    In which sixteen-year-old Buffy Summers' life (and self-esteem) has hit an all time low. But just when she thinks all hope is lost, she finds her luck is about to change, but will it necessarily be for the better?

    Think of this as a Cinderella AU, but with more trauma, and instead of a prince and a happily ever after, our heroine gets superpowers and a new family....and also more trauma. Whoops.

    Wedding happens, crime doesn't, Mary isn't pregnant and Sherlock isn't the one who doesn't belong to ''The Sign of Three.''

    Summary

    The Airbender, Avatar Aang, was never released from the iceberg, and died a few years after the war reached its peak - one hundred years after he ran away from his destiny. The new Avatar is born into a world where the Fire Nation has completely taken over; even the Earth Kingdom has fallen to its knees in submission. Renya, of the Southern Water Tribe, is reluctant to become what this world so desperately needs. Surely, there must be teachers out there willing to show him the way of the elements, but it's more so a matter of whether or not he is willing. He must eventually come to accept his fate if he is to save the world and maybe even himself.

    So shall begin his journey to master the elements and restore peace to the world.
    Sound familiar?

    Summary

    The drums of war are sounding, and the Empire is finding itself besieged by the forces of Mehrunes Dagon.

    But a new threat is rising to threaten the fragile balance of power. Umaril the Unfeathered has chosen this moment to return and his acts of revenge against the Nine could finish breaking the barriers between Mundus and Oblivion. Unable to wield the relics or don the mantle of Divine Crusader; they must instead find other ways to face down the unholy threat of the Sorcerer-King before he can seal the world's doom.

    Summary

    More than four years after Korosensei's death, class 3-E still holds reunions. However, Manami can't help but feel like they've grown distant. Friends like Karma-kun, to whom she could confide anything, have grown to be mere acquaintances.
    However, this specific reunion doesn't go like the others. Mostly because after it's over, the redhead in question waits for her, claiming he has something to talk about.

    A story about growing up and redescovering oneself, about love and friendship and mostly, about the assassin that sleeps within each of us.
