    Summary

    The beautiful, graceful merpeople are neither benevolent nor predictable: they resemble the ocean they live in, cruel and mercurial and perfectly willing to take human lives. Likewise the fourth prince of the sea, heir to the Sea King, and possessing a matchless singing voice, is as inhuman as the rest of his deep-sea kind. Callous as broken coral, sneering and cynical, most indifferent to the world above the sea — yet still a human manages to intrigue him.

    The human’s name is Ivan Zimanovich Braginsky, a young nobleman rumored to be an illegitimate son of Catherine the Great, but spurned for the low class of his dead father and thus cruelly known as “Ivan the Forgotten.” The fourth prince begins to feel for this Russian noble and eventually sacrifices his magic, his sea home, his very being for a chance to live alongside him. However, he has no idea that the agony he'll experience will not be of a physical nature.

    What's everyone doing nowadays?

    Fangan Ronpas.

    Guess what I'm doing?

    "LOL" - Monokuma, probably.

    Summary

    12 years... For 12 long years, I've rotted in the nauseatingly cheerful depths of Hell, tormented endlessly by its singing angels and nightmares of my worst defeats. All while you've lived your lives in relative peace and comfort, but no longer. For you may have destroyed me in every conceivable way possible, I have returned... and you will all know true despair once more.

    Summary

    The world as we know it, ended long ago. Years after the dead began to walk, some countries and communities have managed to halt the infection, closing themselves off. But, for those people who still manage to survive in places where the infected still roam, life is a short and brutal hell- a never ending nightmare.

    Levi Ackerman has spent his whole life running and whether he likes to admit it or not- he's chasing something that'll make him feel alive. He wants to feel something other than fear and anger, to lead a life worth living. He's searching for a splash of sunshine in the dark, cruel world he lives in.

    Summary

    Clones have their place in the universe, beyond the schemes of Palpatine. Events conspire to place Rex on the path of a new fate, one which will affect the future in ways not even the Jedi could foresee. Canon-compliant with Films+TCW, extremely loyal to source material and characterizations. Starts between seasons 5 and 6 of TCW and explores Rex's reaction to Fives' dying words and subsequent events. Variety of canon characters. No ships. Ace and Aro friendly. Strong focus on certain friendships (Rex and Cody, Jesse and Kix, etc) with those friendships playing major roles. Trigger warnings for war-related PTSD, trauma, despair, digging into clone enslavement, etc in later chapters. Not to be taken lightly.

    Summary

    Note: I have no idea what I'm doing. What began as a standalone piece has turned into a mosaic of a bunch of different ideas. I was never very good at finding all the pieces. Perhaps it will just be content as a bunch of random thoughts, loosely woven together with a thread of introspection. Perhaps there will be cake. Who knows what the future will bring? Sure as hell not me.

    In the aftermath of Haven, Olivia Trevelyan finds herself struggling to keep afloat on the tide. While it seems everyone else has placed their faith in her, her own faith lies in ruin, and she stands caught between the security of her old life and a new one she doesn't understand. Doubt, sadness and loss abound, and the thing she wants the most in it all is the thing she's the most afraid to reach for.

    Summary

    Petra knew that one day she would die, but she had no idea that it would be this hard to let go...Rivetra.

    These are two Rivetra fanfics I wrote. They do work kind of like two chapters, but I wrote them as separate stories before I decided, "Hey, these two sound good together!"

    Summary

    Dean was laying on his bed, eyes closed with a large grin on his face shutting out the world while listening to Metallica, humming away to the music. Dean was a twenty-four year old reckless punk, always getting himself into some sort of trouble, drag racing, public intoxication, vandalism but what he would get himself into trouble with more than anything else was his anger. The second he felt threatened or someone threatened the ones he loved he’d pounce on them. But that was the old Dean, the troubled Dean, before he had met ‘him’.
