    Summary

    Instead of an ambush, an accord is struck between two kings. A princess of Nohr for a princess of Hoshido- an arrangement of marriages for the sake of peace. Now grown, the children in question must live with the arrangement. But is it merely duty to their kingdoms, or will there be more?

    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

    Thus started the tale of how a young mech of the Primes lineage became the mate of a nomad of the Wastelands, for the better and for the worse.

    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

    When Ichigo volunteered to join the diplomatic mission to the newly rediscovered planet Hueco Mundo, he wasn't expecting to be stricken by a strange ailment of unknown origin. Even if he had, somehow, managed to predict that, he certainly wouldn't have guessed that the ailment would leave him craving touch and desperate to be taken. And to complicate matters further, it's not a drug or infection--CMO Unohana says it's something to do with the gaps in Ichigo's knowledge of his family tree.

    Fuck-or-Die, GrimmIchi style. In space, because everything is better in space. Multi-chapter, ultimately about a fifty-fifty plot-to-porn ration. Ichigo has a lot of fantasies about a lot of people, so be aware of that if you're not into other pairings. Orihime is his ex, and she doesn't come off too well, but I wouldn't call it Orihime bashing, either. Bottom Ichigo, but NO MPREG. Updated weekly.

    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.

    Summary

    Connie was used to not having any friends. Two years after getting trapped in a magic bubble, she has plenty- but whether it's her own inexperience or the fact that most of them are literal aliens, it's not always easy. All everyone can do is try their best to muddle through it.

    (Loosely connected one-shots centred around Connie's interactions with each of the Crystal Gems).

    Summary

    "There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy." - Hamlet

    The history of Middle Earth is long, stretching back many ages, to even a time before the sun and the moon graced the sky. In the long years, much has happened and much as been lost, even a whole race. The Cementumenosse, in the common tongue, 'the wielders of earth'. Are naught but legend, even among their kin, the Elves. However, their history, and especially, one of their number, will have a marked effect on the world. It could be for good or it could be for evil, for all of the Cementumenosse are Darkness Marked. The pain of their history etched into their very soul.

    Summary

    "Her Imperious Condescension wasn't a game abstraction, she was a person, a horrible, vile person that Roxy doesn't regret killing in the slightest. However, killing people, troll or otherwise, was something that weighed heavily on a fragile human psyche. The various trolls, far more accustomed to the act, had given her their counsel in an attempt to soothe her mind. It helped, but that didn't stop the nightmares."

    A post-game fic where, three months into the new world, everyone is dealing with the various weights and burdens they carry. Resolving them will hurt, far more than any death, dream, just, heroic, or otherwise. They'll all learn, slowly, just how strong they really are.

    AUTHOR'S NOTE: The Character Death and Depiction of Violence tags are for PAST DEATHS AND VIOLENCE. There will be none of that in the story's present day. I sincerely hope you enjoy the work, whether as catharsis, venting, joy, or any other kind of emotional imperative!

    THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR 1000 VIEWS!

    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?
