    Summary

    Hubris: In Which Leonardo da Vinci Discovers He Does Not Know All.

    Leo embraces the proposal(s) of a certain spurned and scorned Serpent to do much, much more than pursue The Book of Leaves which leads to angsting and intriguing as ancient animosities, inverted narcissism and secret societies delay their odyssey amid anachronisms, clichés and dei ex machina to keep this tale with too many grandiose words from getting too unwieldy (though this fandom is lacking bad epic fic) before there is a showdown in Florence between friends and foes.

    Spoiler Alert: This tale begins its general deviation at the end of "The Devil" (1x06) with no retconning to align with character histories revealed during the second season since their backgrounds have already been altered.

    Projected Length: Twentysomething installments if the plotbunnies stop plotting with early chapters subject to tweaking to fill in, say, plotholes.

    Summary

    A bow in her hand and a mark far into the countryside is what keeps Eri happy, well-fed and busy. Fighting alongside her shield-siblings is all that Nasima needs in life (that, and a hardy cup of ale). Kell just wants to study, take care of the college and do whatever he wants without stuck-up Jarls asking him for favours. He hadn't intended to free those people... He didn't even know they were there!

    An adventure in accepting fate and kicking some Nordic butt.

    Summary

    To one place Eris drew them all, the fearful Battle-queen,
    beheld of none, but cloaked in clouds blood-raining:
    on she stalked swelling the mighty roar of battle,
    now rushed through Troy's squadrons,
    through Akhaia's now;
    Phobos and Deimos still waited on her steps to make their father's sister glorious.
    From small to huge that Fury's stature grew;
    her arms of adamant were blood-besprent,
    the deadly lance she brandished reached the sky.
    Earth quaked beneath her feet:
    dread blasts of fire flamed from her mouth:
    her voice pealed thunder-like kindling strong men.
    Swift closed the fronts of fight drawn by a dread Power to the mighty work.

    Summary

    Metatron's plan dies with him, leaving Cas the prime suspect for his and Naomi's murders. On the run, he discovers how to cloak himself from Heaven's new 'democracy'. Working a ritual that leaves him as a demi-angel, Cas starts a human life and keeps his distance from the Winchesters. Meanwhile, demons start dying off en masse and nobody knows who's responsible. Sam gets a taste of the life he wants and tries to approach his brother about it. Of course, Abaddon is freed, Crowley is weirding everyone out with his personality shift, and Cas' self-imposed exile is hitting Dean hard. Then Cas asks for Dean's help. Hellbent on dragging him home, Dean arrives in Idaho to find that he's supporting himself and two children-one psychic-off his pittance. He agrees to find a home for the kids if everyone comes back with him to Kansas. The daily grind becomes weekly, then monthly. Sam moves out, Kevin gets a job and Crowley goes globe-trotting. All the while, Cas and Dean find themselves accidentally raising a family; their feelings becoming harder to bury. But peace is often fleeting and even Abaddon struggles with confidence when an apocalyptic rumor is born. One in which Cas' role is vital. Sometimes Destiny can only be delayed.

    Summary

    The Alpha Pack has declared it's presence in Beacon Hills, and things aren't looking good. Stiles has found a ritual that would tie a Hunter, a Mage and a Werewolf together, making them almost undefeatable. If he can pull this off, then he can make sure that Beacon Hills stays safe. The problem’s going to be finding a Hunter and a Werewolf willing to enter into the bond with him - and Scott and Allison are out of the question.

    Peter isn’t trying to redeem himself, but he is trying to move on. With no one trusting him however, this is difficult to accomplish.

    Chris is trying to find his way in a world where everything he stands for has been turned on its head, and maybe the werewolves aren’t the worst monsters out there.

    And in the background, Loki's watching as the Hale pack fights for survival.

    Summary

    In the year 96 AD, all Rome is aware that their gods have begun to Mark certain people with their gifts -- the healing power of Apollo, the metal control of Vulcan, the deathly touch of Pluto, or the mental powers of Minerva. When those gifts fall to slaves or barbarians instead of the Romans themselves, strict control is necessary.

    Then a gladiator from Judea meets an enslaved scribe from Britannia, and the repercussions will shake the Empire itself.

    (Now with illustrations from the awesomely talented LooLooBee!)

    Summary

    Yep... I'm writing one of these... Trapped in that locker, Taylor Hebert triggers, and gets all the powers of the Queen of Blades. Too bad half the school sees it happen. So much for a secret identity. Disclaimer: This was a rush job. (Feel free to steal any of the ideas here-in.)

    The lesson here, Susie thinks, is that tricking Death is tricky business. How do you outwit the personification of oblivion? Chess, obviously, won’t be the answer.
