    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

    Ten years after the Reveal and his mother’s death, Stiles Stilinski is doing okay.

    Sure, monsters are real and that’s changed his life in unimaginable ways; having to move away from his childhood home, the loss of his best friend and the constant threat of danger and Supes moving in on their settlement. Despite all that, he’s hit a stride, has become a forerunner on Supe knowledge and an efficient Raider for the settlement.

    Until one night his world is turned upside down again when he meets a mesmerizing Wolfe with winter blue eyes and gets back someone he thought he’d never see again. Things just get stranger from there, but Stiles is nothing if he’s not adaptable.

    Summary

    Cadence Bell sat on uncomfortable grey rocks at the far end of the curve of the dull grey shore, and watched the waves crash over and over under the looming grey sky. He’d been sitting on stone long enough for his left leg to go numb. He ignored it.

    Summary

    Your first day enrolled at Elsewhere was a Tuesday. It was nearly five o'clock, the sun was just going down, and you could hear things. You'd turned, wide-eyed, pale-faced, to your RA, Jenna, who had rolled her too-bright eyes and said ‘It's Tuesday,’ and was so entirely unconcerned you had had to believe there was nothing to be concerned about.

    Spoiler: there are lots of things to be concerned about at Elsewhere U.

    Summary

    “Mmm… but what was it that made you decide to come back?” Seokjin rephrases.

    Taehyung glances at Jungkook, and deliberately, his lips twitch up into a smirk, eyes darkening just a little bit. “I’m a human after all. Foolish. Figuring out my intentions shouldn’t be rocket science.”

    For a moment, the other three in the room just stare at him. Taehyung doesn’t let the stares unnerve him, only deciding to cock his head to one side, eyebrow raised as the silence drags on. And then finally it breaks when Jimin shakes his head before letting out a true blue giggle, “well. He’s interesting at least.”

    -

    (or: Jungkook is a god, Taehyung just wants to be his friend. They both end up as something more.)
