    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 little to no retconning to align with character histories revealed during the second season since their backgrounds have already been altered.

    Projected Length: Thirty-plus since plotbunnies won't stop plotting with earlier chapters subject to tweaking to fill in, say, plotholes.

    This story idea was suggested by an anonymous friend.

    One day later, Levi wakes up to find himself being brutally assaulted in a dark, cold cell, unable to remember the events leading up to his capture. Will he and his fellow prisoners be able to fight back and escape their nightmarish confines?

    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 practically human, Cas takes to the road and keeps his distance from the Winchesters. Meanwhile, demons start dying off en masse and no one 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

    When God came down from Heaven to visit sixteen-year-old Frasier Crane, neither of them could have imagined the events that would unfold afterwards (not to mention before). Not really a fanfiction, more a solemn report of events.

    Summary

    Darcy Lewis is the only person in the world with a broken soulmark, until Jane Foster's experiments with the Einstein-Rosen Bridge go awry and she lands in the middle of a forest, surrounded by Scandinavian-looking Peter Pan wannabes.

    Legolas Thranduilion was Blank for over two millennia, and when his soulmark finally did appear, it was...not right. Not in any dialect of Sindarin or Quenya or Common or even Khuzdul. And then Darcy Lewis, quite literally, landed on his doorstep.

    Shenanigans ensue as they get to know one another, and each other's respective cultures and friends and families. They're both strangers in a strange land--depending upon whose world they're in, and thanks to Heimdall, they travel between the two a bit.

    If you ever wondered what Legolas would say when someone called him Leggy for the first time, or how he'd react to the Incredible Hulk, read on. And the Darcy/Thranduil interactions are nothing to sneeze at, either.

    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.
