    Summary

    Erik has just finished helping liberate Genosha, and is still very scarred by his own time as a slave. He has no way to realize that in Westchester, 'slave,' means something more like, 'an indentured servant who has human rights and whose owner is responsible for their care and keeping to the terms of the indenture contract.'

    So of course, he can't possibly exploit the beautiful boy he finds in his bed. Charles is extremely put out by this.

    Summary

    Heats only ever happen when omega biology is kickstarted by drinking bloodwine - and Tony's never drunk a drop. Part of it was because his father made it clear how omegas could be taken advantage of during their heats, and part of it was because, when he made the decision to share in the monthly ritual, his chosen partners turned out to be... not that great.

    Now, on the Avengers team, he wants to help his fellow omega Bruce out, help Bruce show Natasha he's interested, and Bruce makes it a condition that if he goes to the Dance, Tony must go as well. Tony briefly considers leaving off, but hey, he's old - who'd want an old omega? And this could finally be the time he could experience his heat under the watchful eyes of the Wardens, so no one could take advantage of him.

    What could happen, right? Only, Tony didn't expect anyone to choose him - least of all Steve Rogers. But Steve Rogers has a different reason for picking Tony than Tony suspects…

    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.

    [[An epic with significant focus on Karkat and Kanaya in a universe where, after a brutal three month war ending with a sudden change in politics, the Alternian Empire attempts to repair species relations by sending volunteers to live in the Sol system. Chosen pieces on an unknown board flock unwittingly toward one place with only the barest of hints as to their purpose, fates, and abilities...]]

    Summary

    Christopher Maxey thought he was ready for China. Christopher Maxey had actually never been more wrong.

    "I speak about six words in Chinese, despite thinking that I was pretty fluent before I ended up in this Godforsaken country, and every one of them seems to revolve around ordering a drink and finding the toilet."

    Summary

    Artemis is one of two non-metas on her team, and normally she's certain that that just makes her cooler, but when Robin and Batman get trapped and tortured, she's the first one on the scene to rescue them, and she has to deal with everything that reveals about them, and about herself. Plus, there's these kids at her school who won't leave her alone until she goes to prom with them, and Robin isn't acting right (who would, really, after that?) and seems to think it's perfectly okay to break into her room at night.

    Summary

    Karkat, opening for him, glared until he spied his not really injured but definitely pitiful state. And rolled his eyes. "I knew you wanted to learn troll customs, but getting here like any other troll through ' hardships untold' or whatever, is ridiculous." Or, in Karkat-ese, you idiot, you're not bleeding to death and I can't tell if you're injured, but you look fine to me. "Get your fat sack seat inside."
