    Summary

    "Turn back, turn back, thou pretty bride,
    Within this house thous must not abide.
    For here do evil things betide."
    - the Brothers Grimm, "The Robber Bridegroom".

    When the services of a "nanny" became required at the Nikiforov Estate, Yuuri Katsuki stood in to take care of Victor Nikiforov, son and heir of the fallen Nikiforov bloodline... and a doll.
    And his presence within the household is as much of a hindrance as it is an alluring danger.

    Or, the events of Bluebeard's Wife from Victor's point of view.

    (I recommend reading Bluebeard's Wife before starting The Erlking, for better understanding of the events.)

    Summary


    [spoilers for the whole game!]

    my line falls with an empty hook,
    yet fools the world.


    a split second decision with long term consequences...

    in the engine room, the phantom thieves leap into action in time to save akechi goro's life. now, with one of their greatest threats holed up in the attic of cafe leblanc, each of them must take the time to try and understand this boy - neither friend nor foe - who doesn't know where he stands with even himself.

     
    (OR: akechi goro deserves a real redemption arc and a chance to connect with each of the phantom thieves individually, whether they become friends or not. so i'm taking things into my own hands. vigilante (poetic) justice style!)

    Summary

    "It's really not for me to say, Frank," Karen Page says, from the edge of his hospital bed. She's got hair the colour of gingersnaps, and stardust crammed under her fingernails. When she speaks it's like she thinks she's losing a war. "But I think your family must have loved you very much."

    Summary

    "The title of this entry is a misnomer, but I trust you will understand the reference. I often contemplate the nature of dreams, the random firings of neurons that that sleeping organic minds experience. The chaotic assemblages of memories mixed with fantasy and neuroses that organics say inspire feelings of fear or hope. But the answer to the question posed by the title is no."

    EDI reflects on life as a sentient AI in a crew of organics.

    Summary

    A single auburn hair and Gin knew it was her and was surprised to discover it was Sherry who had taken the first move. Why is that I wonder? What past warrants their interaction on that snowy hotel roof; supplies the context of their witty banter on romance; led Gin to spill so much of her blood across the snow? Blood the color of roses: her favorite color. And yet left her so much unharmed.

    This backstory spans from when Gin (26) and Sherry (19) meet for the first time when he shoots through her coat collar in order to threaten an insubordinate Organization member who was threatening her, until it meets up with canon. It covers the two years leading up to file 242: A White World. This story offers an explanation to questions regarding the context of Sherry’s interaction with Gin on the hotel roof by piecing together hints and theories about their past.

    Summary

    “What are you doing here, you problem child?”

    There’s a familiar, exasperated tone that reaches Midoriya’s ears, and Midoriya opens his eyes.
    The source of the voice turns out to be Aizawa-sensei. They’re also seated across each other in the staff room, just the two of them, like the time when Aizawa-sensei was chastising Midoriya about his, well, recklessness.

    Strange, Midoriya thinks, because he swears that roughly thirty minutes ago, he downed a handful of sleeping pills.

    AKA in which the seven deadly sins become an intervention squad after midoriya’s suicide attempt.

    Summary

    Following the panicked plea of my inner voice, I scramble out of the bed and immediately crash to the ground. It is ironic that this happens at least once a day, me falling out of bed like an unruly toddler. But I dismiss it, my heart beating wildly as I use the nightstand as leverage to rise. My muscles are tired, body protesting, complaining about the interrupted rest.

    “Ser?” My voice echoes in the empty room, panic lacing my voice. “Ser?” Nothing. I grab a candle from the nightstand and open the door, purple eyes scanning the desk where he normally sits. It is empty. Then they flicker down as the gurgling sound rings out anew. Louder this time. What I see lets my blood run icy cold.

    #######

    Story focuses on Hailey and Cullen, how they handle the Lyrium withdrawal, individual weaknesses; as well as developing and strengthen the bonds of their unusual relationship. Events of Dragon Age Inquisition get addressed as background to show the story's progress and timeline but aren't the prominent theme.
    This story is heavily NSFW.

    Summary

    “You should come with me,” Rikku said, apropos of nothing.
    “What?” Auron asked, stunned.
    “Come with me to Luca,” she said. “Get out of Besaid. See a little more of Sinless Spira, figure out what you’re gonna do with yourself. We both know you’re not going to find what you’re looking for here. You can stay with me until you figure out a new path.”

     

    Ten years after the beginning of the Eternal Calm, Auron finds himself alive on Spira once more. With no explanations and no purpose, he embarks on a journey to find his place.
