    Summary

    Cassiopeia Black knows what she's getting into when an owl gives her an emerald-inked letter. She tucks her father's hair into a ponytail and cracks her knuckles and tells herself it doesn't matter what they think anyway, even if the way they all look at her hurts a little.

    George Weasley blinks a little at the girl's last name, but he mimics Black's spearmint and knife flash smirk at his twin, and Fred nods back. Mum and Dad had invited Black's mother over for tea once or twice, and they had rather liked her smirk too, though Black's mother has a smirk more closer to rock 'n' roll and lemon juice. That's that, for the most part.

    Cedric Diggory didn't learn her last name at first, he learnt her slight, shy smile for when she was nervous and what a Walkman was, and that was more important than a last name.

    Adrian Pucey thinks her a little bit of a riddle, but he's no Ravenclaw, and he won't go searching too far for answers. Luckily for him, Cassiopeia Black wonders about him too. Him and his blue blooded, slender hands that are so deft at chopping up potions ingredients.

    Summary


    That's the world. Everything you build, it tears down. Everything you've got, it takes. And it's gone forever. The only choices you get are to lie down and die or keep going. He kept going. That's as close to beating the world as anyone gets. – Varric Tethras, Dragon Age: Inquisition

     

     

     
    I should start this by saying, I really should have known better. There was no such thing as coincidence , especially not when you recognized the world you were born into as something from a game that people used to play.

    Perhaps my first clue should have been that, that I remembered such a world existed. But it wasn’t.

    Never underestimate the power of denial.

    Summary

    Lanse is many things. Or, he was, before the war left him without a home or family or mentor. Now he’s just a Paladin, one without a team or crown to be loyal to. But as long as he has Blue, the two of them won’t rest in their search for new Paladins to reform Voltron. Being captured by the galra is just a temporary setback.

    Or: In which Lanse struggles to live up to his predecessor’s legacy, Blue is as stubborn as she is supportive, and Keith has no idea how far in over his head he’s gotten until it's way too late.

    With art by aru-paru.

    Summary

    The monsters wonder why they thought humanity could have changed, why they believed a small child's words that their species were not the same evil creatures that they had been thousands of years ago. Why they allowed themselves to hope. As they are torn from loved ones- from family- thats all they can ask themselves. Why.

    -----

    You are a nobody, a small-town waitress just trying to get by. You don't expect anything to ever happen to you. But one day you find a man living in a cardboard box behind your diner. No, not a man, a monster. And this monster doesn't have a collar. What's a girl to do?

    Summary

    You fell in love many years ago, shyly, with a golden-haired friend. He was a Prince among Dwarrow, even in Exile, and you took a long time to realise that he looked your way as often as you did him.
    When he gave you a necklace for your birthday - a gift made by his own hand, no less - you thought he wanted the same thing you did. A week later, you realised you had simply been deceiving yourself, when he broke off whatever small flirtation you had managed.
    But you kept the necklace; making it a symbol of remembrance, touching it every time your heart wanted to smile at him. You never told him, of course, keeping your distance as best you could...

    This is what happened when Fili learned the truth.

    Summary

    Conkers is a game of skill and fun, a perfect way to let off steam to prevent many in-families assassinations from ocurring, and most of all, training. Because in Hobbit culture, many things are sacred, but very few as sacred as generosity and constraint. And sometimes, of course, a hobbit becomes overly greedy.
    It happens even in the best of families —Bilbo's, even, has a perfect example, coughLobeliacough—, and so, the hobbits long devised a solution: the Most Ancient and Sacred Hobbit Remedy for Greediness.

    It works nine times out of ten, and the one that doesn't is usually due to death or severe injury meddling in the process.

    Summary

    The entire walk back from the alienage, all she can think of is the smell. Sweat, waste, damp, decay—the smells of a city. It’s a foreign smell that’s become too familiar, and the familiarity makes her stomach churn as much as the smothering press of people, the ambient clatter of too-heavy footsteps and wheels and voices (above all, voices), and the weight of her kinsmen’s despair. Not even the estate will block it out. She needs green, true green, and the vhenadahl will not suffice. So, after delivering her evidence, she returns to her room and trades her dragon leather for deerskin, Starfang for her dar’misu, and leaves.

    A tale of bonds formed, bonds severed, and the inevitable emotional crisis that occurs when you're the current Last and Best Hope of Thedas.

    Summary

    When the mysterious Court of Thorns and Roses, a pure-blood political alliance of families that hails back to Salazar Slytherin's days, resurrects a dead custom - the Calenmai Fesitval - all unmarried pure-bloods are required to register, attend, and compete for the coveted title of May King and May Queen of the festival. At the end of the contest, all participants are to be matched by the ancient magic of the Beltane Bonfire and married off, thus carrying on the 'sacred duty of furthering pure-blood dynasties in wizarding Britain'.

    When Draco is volunteered by his mother to represent their family at the games under the banner of the Night Court, he asks his best friend, Hermione, to stand at his side and help him pick a worthy bride from the available witches.

    ...But can Hermione really do as is being asked of her, and give up the man she secretly loves to some other woman, all in the name of friendship?
