    Summary

    As the Company recuperates at Beorn's house, Kili is captured on a solitary hunt and presented to Azog by a band of rogue goblins. After days of searching, Thorin believes his sister-son to be dead, abandoning the rescue and continuing on towards Erebor. But Kili is very much alive. And as time passes and hope of rescue fades, the youngest heir of Durin is forced to forsake his family ties, the customs of his people, even his own humanity, in order to survive.

    Summary

    A spying mission from Earth to Alternia goes wrong. Instead of simply piloting a troll body, John Egbert finds his consciousness fully embedded into a troll's. With no support whatsoever from the world he knows, he must stumble his way through troll life, find his team mates and find a way out.

    But nothing is ever easy, especially for a fish out of water. Things are bound to get in the way. Namely, quadrants.
    Quadrants, and one troll named Karkat Vantas.

    Summary

    GODDAMN do you hate this place, these weirdly-colored hornless people who move through the streets in overwhelming swarms with their constant suspicious glares, the endless disturbing roar of vehicles on the streets outside and in the sky, that hideous and malicious sun, but you don't hate any of it as much as you hate yourself for talking yourself into this mess to begin with.

    That's you right there, Karkat motherfucking Vantas, eternal master of making astonishingly bad decisions that he can't do anything about but regret and then brood over endlessly, and you think you probably would have slit your own throat with one of your sickles long before the entire quarter of a sweep you've managed to stand being stranded here if not for the presence of the troll who's abruptly and gently knocking on your door.

    (This is a fic focused primarily on Karkat Vantas but involving a whole lot of other characters and pairings, as well as chapters from many other POVs. It's set in a Trolls On Earth style AU that's pretty detailed. Concupiscent and conciliatory porn present but not the focus of the work. A lot more pale porn than other kinds, though.)

    Summary

    Clint would have come to help. Like, really. If it hadn't been for just a tiny detail—the kind which causes the best laid plans to spiral into chaos.

    It's not like Clint had a plan, anyway. Still, this whole slavery thing is supposed to be Loki's punishment. Maybe Clint's being petty, but it sounds more like the joke's on him.

    Summary

    Karkat Vantas does not like company. Unfortunately for him, he can't seem to get rid of the strange alien girl he finds on his doorstep. It's only because of her blood color though, he wouldn't actually take care of her because he cared about her or anything. Not at all.
    Especially when she starts attracting the attention of genocidal trolls.

    You don't have to know Alien Nation at all to read, understand or enjoy this fic! You should probably read Home Is Where The Heart Is and All's Fair In Love And War first, though.

    Summary

    This is not my world. Unless I am in another dimension where Earth has two moons, this isn't even Earth. If so, these barbarians are not ancient Norse people. I fell into a cave, hit my head, and woke up in a world with torches, leather, and swords. I'm lost and not understood, and my only friend has a penchant for blood warpaint.

    Full Description: Written in the first-person, "Hero by Mistake" is the story of Deborah, an American archaeologist who has a terrible accident on a dig site in Norway and loses consciousness. When she wakes up, she believes she's been abandoned by her colleagues, and doesn't know she's not in her own world. She believes that the first people she runs into are local Norwegian archaeologists, but is very, very wrong.

    Summary

    Yâsithâlh barufur, zyungur; yâsithâlh gem.
    Those that marry with family, with love; those that marry three.

    -

    On the long road to the Lonely Mountain, Bilbo Baggins was becoming quite the scholar of Dwarven customs, whether she liked it or not. It often felt as much a curse as it did a blessing, but as this quest proved, her boldness and curiosity had a nasty habit of overriding her good sense.

    And, of course, her ill-considered fascination with one burly dwarf in particular was simply another example of that.

    Summary

    He killed The Brain, he didn't understand what the moding deal was, he had told them he was a survivor, how could they not realize that he'd meant that he had killed things before, at first it was a Reach soldier here or there, then other scavengers and thieves who tried to steal his food, and now it's become anybody who threatened his family.......... it figures they wouldn't understand, he had lost too much too soon, never given a real chance to see the world as black and white............. Because when all you have for weather in the moded future is nuclear winter you get used to seeing shades of gray.

    Summary

    The war has ended, the prophecies have all been fulfilled, and the world has been put back together by the sacred power that only a Purple Dragon can wield. But after the final blast, just where did Spyro and Cynder end up...?

    Battered and bruised from the battle with Malefor, the two young dragons wake to find that not only are they still intact, but they've also been taken in by a community of dragons that has remained hidden since the war began. The inhabitants of Cliff Town pose an interesting new challenge for the healing heroes, as they find that they know next to nothing about draconic society and are thrust into a crash-course on socializing with their own kind. Saving the world is a piece of cake compared to trying to make friends your own age! Not to mention how strangely accepting the entire town is towards a certain black dragon...

    Summary

    Dave and Rose did not realize how ludicrously different the trolls were to them until they were sleep deprived and newly paranoid of clowns.

    Well, it wasn't that bad. Not when the trolls made some ridiculously cute noises.

    Summary

    Once upon a time, Indoril Nerevar, great leader of the Dark Elves of Morrowind, was betrayed by those closest to him and doomed to be reborn again and again until he atoned for the mistakes made by his friends.

    A few thousand years later, Steve, “an individual of no rank or consequence”, is sent to Morrowind, not knowing the role he will play in that nation's history, or that this is not the first time he has attempted to walk this path. In this lifetime, though, he will have some help.

    (Fusion of the Avengers with the Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, with many artistic liberties taken. Will be updated irregularly.)
