    Summary

    Starfleet Academy was supposed to be easy: he had one of the highest entrance exam scores on record. Yet before Spock can study warp theory and diplomatic philosophy, he must first survive Starfleet’s six week initial entry training, where he will learn to handle awful roommates, arbitrary regulations, absurd hazing rituals, jealous peers, and the wide spectrum of human illogic.

    Summary

    Karkat Vantas always accepted the fact that he was not going to live past nine sweeps. It was just a certainty of his sad, miserable life. At least, that was until his friends found out and decided to hatch a plan to get him out of the Alternian empire. A plan that actually worked.

    Now, he was stranded on an alien planet, at the mercy of some strange creature that was either trying to help him or going about some freaky ritual of flirting with your food before you eat it.

    Also, aliens have sunglasses.

    He was better off dying on Alternia, wasn't he?

    Summary

    Iroh offered him a strange smile, one that bordered between his usual goofy grins and something harder; almost cruel. Something that seemed much more at home on the Dragon of the West's face than the uncle that Zuko knew. "Make him be the unreasonable one. Bend him to you instead of trying to break him."

    Summary

    Ever since Carlos was little, he and his daemon have been fans of Dr. Lyra Belacqua. Both as the most groundbreaking experimental theologian of the 20th century, and as the heroine of dozens of fantasy-adventure children's stories (based very loosely on her own mysterious childhood).

    But Lyra's true legacy is still bigger than Carlos ever imagined...until he took a team of scholars to study Rusakov particles in the most theologically interesting community in Hispania Nova. Now his own day-to-day life is full of things like angels, witches, hooded spectres, portals between worlds, vague yet menacing branches of the Magisterium, and a man who walks around without his daemon and can read an alethiometer as easily as a stop sign.

    Summary

    "We left Middle Earth, never to return, and shall never speak of these lands again." As those words of Finwë became law, the fate of his first child, a son taken by the Shadow, remains a taboo never to be shared with any of his children. But in Angband, the son of Miriel is not dead at all.

    Fëanaro abandoned his half-brother only to meet a full-blooded one, more alien to him than Nolofinwë will ever be.
