    Summary

    Poe had heard the tales before. The stories were ancient pilot lore, passed down between smugglers and spice runners who recounted their encounters with the unexplained in wild space. Warning young pilots to avoid the temptations they might find lurking hidden in the far corners of star charts.

    Perhaps he should have listened.

    Summary

    Stiles clapped his hands together listlessly. “Oh, boy. This is gonna be good.” He closed his eyes, sighing in silence.

    “What’s good about that?” Jackson scrutinised him critically, oblivious the obvious sarcasm.

    Isaac, on the other hand, understood very well how Stiles meant what he had said. There was a very conflicted expression crossing his features – and it didn’t get better as someone seemed to express exactly what he was thinking.

    Theo scoffed. “So, they were getting the blowjobs of their lives, I suppose.”

    Summary

    Helvägen is the path to Nifelheim or Hel, the realm of the dead in Norse mythology, governed by the goddess of death, Hel. A place freezing cold, without natural life or any kind of joyous emotion. Helvägen (Swedish) is an ancient Norse funeral song, telling of the sorrow and anxiety man has felt for the inescapable and fatal fact of our own death.

    Whether Yrsa is fortunate, or unfortunate - it's for the Gods to decide. Some days, she wishes she'd been born a simple churl, being able to farm the lands during the day and cuddle down with a loving husband at her side during the nights. If the Gods were kind, her fertility would allow them several children, running about their small farm, playing and shouting, as children do.
    But alas, Yrsa's fortune was not in happiness nor a simple life. Instead, she has the constant feeling of walking the path to Hel.

    This fic is an AU, somewhat based on the Skyrim-universe, but in a Nordic context. The fic contains a lot of spoken Old Norse, Swedish and Norwegian, but do not fret, I've translated it all into English and the majority is written in English.

    Summary

    Early in the fall of 1831, a young ambitious Gascon arrives in Paris. He is a descendant of the Great d' Artagnan and hopes to live up to his family name in the service of the Musketeers*. The world however is not that of his great ancestor. This is France after the Revolution that deposed the Bourbon monarchy and after the fall of Napoleon. Louis Philippe is now King of the French, assisted by his powerful advisor, the vampire, Minister Guizot. It is also a world in the aftermath of the sinister events of March 1817 that ended with the disappearance of the two English magicians, Mr. Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, and the coming of the Raven King who now rules from the Throne of Rome. Since then, boundaries between this world and the Other Lands have collapsed unleashing powers no one has been able to contain. A new prophecy speaks of new heroes, allies, and a sacrifice of love but the Raven King suppresses it because it clearly is not what he had expected. Who are these heroes and how are their destinies intertwined with the strange fate of the two lost magicians?

    *Dear Reader, please note that historically, the Musketeers had been disbanded by this period. I hope you can suspend your...disbelief!

    Summary

    Dean and Castiel were never meant to be together but the invisible force of love that existed between them even before Dean was born was what altered their destiny.

    A connection so strong will they choose eternal happiness together on earth promised by the cunning Devil? Or would they rather suffer in separation for a place in heaven and graces of the Lord?

    Now don't worry, this isn't a religious story per se. It's a love story that defied all challenges. Thanks for reading :)

    Summary

    Lower Bavaria, 13th century.
    Son of Henry XIII, Louis III (or Len, as he likes to be called) is about to marry Isabelle. As any other marriage in royal medieval Europe, Len has seen her only twice, to say that much. But there is a problem. A girl who's been visiting his dreams since he can remember. And he won't stop until he finds her.

    ((This is the first part of a long series slightly based on my favorites stand-alone songs by Hitoshizuku-P x Yama, so I'm not sure if it's an AU? Anyway, there will be some worldwide History compliant facts as you can see, but it ain't boring, I swear,,))

    Summary

    Killed a man, have you? I recognise the signs – the tremor of your hand as you fill the glass, your gaze distant and unfocused, the bottle clutched like a hand in the dark. Did you watch the light go out in his eyes? Did you see him buried? Did you know his name?

    As to that, let me tell you a tale.
     
    Once, there was a hunter, and his quarry was …well, you’ll see.

    Summary

    Jungkook disappears into the water one day. A different, new Jungkook comes out.

    "A demon?" He repeats. "Couldn't be farther from the truth. Demons can't possess humans for more than a week."

    "Then what are you?" Jimin asks desperately, "Why the hell are you in Jungkook's body?"

    Not-Jungkook was looking increasingly petulant now. "I'm still Jungkook. Just... improved."

    Summary
