    Summary

    Scott Ryder's life has been turned upside down these last few years. He's not sure he's ready to deal with everything at once, but he has always been commited to doing what's needed of him, and this time is no different. Gil Brodie is an engineer and top-level poker player who loves what he does, but is stuck in a bit of a rut. They've both hit the reset button in their lives to find new purpose and adventure, to explore new and uncharted horizons and be part of something great. And that is exactly what will happen, but in a completely different way than either of them had anticipated.

    Summary

    In the aftermath of his father's death, Kylo Ren tries to commune with nature and work through his problems through hiking the Pacific Crest Trail.

    It doesn't seem to be working.

    He's far more concerned with beating this guy named Hux (and his cat) to the end of the trail than any actual self exploration. Personal growth is overrated anyway.

    After a series of hardships and childhood trauma, Isak Valtersen is forced into the gruelling world of street prostitution, a nightmare in which he feels completely alone.

    When Even pulls up to Isak's corner in the early hours of a dreary Thursday morning, neither of them can expect how similar their respective desires are, despite their vastly different social rankings.

    *Or the Pretty Woman au that no one asked for.

    Summary

    The thing about machines is that they did unwanted jobs: bagging groceries, assembling cars, and sweeping floors. Things no one had the time or energy for in such a busy world.

    That was why Tyler hated the robot. He didn't need an assistant. He wasn't an unwanted job. He was normal.

    Summary

    The story of the Last Dragonborn has been told and retold until it has become legend.

    But people forget that she was a woman before she was a hero. People forget, or choose to ignore, that their hero was as caged by her circumstances as they were.

    Through her eyes, being Dovahkiin is no blessing.

    ~~~

    Snippets of the Dragonborn's life, and her many adventures, told from her perspective and thoroughly lacking in glory.

    Summary

    Matt can’t sleep.

    It’s not like this is a new occurrence. Sleep has been evading him for years now, and he can’t even remember what a proper restful night feels like.

    He sometimes thinks of when he was still at the Garrison, how he used to think he knew what stress was, how he used to bemoan the pressure from instructors, the rigorous training, the way he could only ever seem to get no more than six hours of sleep a night, and he yearns for the simplicity of back then.

    Past-Matt didn’t know how good he had it.

    -x-

    [Matt adjusts to being in the Castle of Lions.]

    Summary

    Honestly, local troublemaker Mae Borowski thought that things would get so much simpler and be easier to deal with after having literally confronted a cosmic deity and a cult of selfish, middle aged kidnapping/murdering adults, but no. Once again, life has more in plan for her and her friends, what with her hometown still dying just as before, only now at a less brisk pace and now there's a new taco place. So while the universe continues to not care, Mae will just have to cope how she usually does, this time though, she doesn't have to worry that she's going crazy, well at least crazier than usual. It's not like she's having weird dreams again and the possible ghost/madness induced manifestation of her dead best friend is haunting her when she goes to sleep. Or maybe that's exactly it.
