    Summary

    Hubris: In which Leonardo da Vinci discovers he does not know all.

    After the prologuey chapter, it begins with The unquiet mind studied the starlit sky in its demise as Leo angsts over a certain spurned and scorned Serpent until you, dear Reader(s), having survived slash clichés with food and snake metaphors during kissing scenes, arrive when the angsting ends (maybe) and the arguing and intriguing begins over the search for The Book of Leaves with surprises that'll shock your knows-it-all protagonist but it's more--or mostly--about the repercussions of what happens when Leonardo accepts an "amicable partnership" in this tale not so much of woe but of anachronisms, clichés and dei ex machina to keep it from getting too, too long (though this fandom is lacking bad epic fic) before a showdown in Florence between friends and foes.

    Spoiler Alert: This tale begins its general deviation from the television series at the end of 1x06.

    Projected Length: I don't know, maybe 22?

    Ye Olde Disclaimer: Fanfic is always for fun, never for profit.

    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.)

    Summary

    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.

    Summary

    When he offends their enemies, Thor finds himself in a series of strange Asgards. Somehow he has to get home, not least so he can back to the version of Loki he expects, but some of his encounters make him start to question what he's always believed.

    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

    After the events of the Avenger's movie, the Avenger's try and forge a normal (ish) life out of the rubble of New York. Relationships form, change, and grow as they become more of a family. Steve goes from single to being in an active relationship with Tony Stark, Bruce Banner, and Jarvis. Insanity happens. This is long, but awesome. Included: Cuteness with puppies, Extremis, Asgard adventures, how to balance a threesome, jealousy, marriage, how to deal with crazy reporters, an off shoot of Thorki which joins back up with this story line much later, and lots of other stuff. Should be adding a chapter or so a day as I proof through the rps.

    Summary

    The portal snapped her up and shook her like a doll. She hadn’t been planning on any of this- it was supposed to be her vacation from school, a breather with her siblings before she dove into her PhD. Instead she’d gotten a wormhole, and a one-way trip to the 1940s. And she didn’t even get an adorkable alien in a fez out of the whole thing.
