    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.

    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

    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

    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 other POVs. It's set in a Trolls On Earth style AU that's pretty detailed, and while there's definitely porn in it, it's also heavy on character development and plot. Also lots of soul-warming moirallegience action.)

    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

    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.

    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.)

    Summary

    Splitoff timeline—the battleship catches up with the meteor on its trip to the next session. John, Jade, the sprites, and the consorts assimilate themselves into everyday life in the troll's former ectobiology laboratory. Faced with what could well be the end of the existence of two races, relationships form and dissolve, tension rises, and in the middle of all this John comes to the disconcerting realization that Karkat is actually kind of cute. Like a puppy dog, or a little kid. Not cute in that way, definitely not. No.

    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.
