    Summary

    Barry was in his favorite cafe when he saw him.

    He was a couple years older than Barry with a huge house in the middle of the forest. He was kind, and funny, and one of the most attractive people he's ever met. How could he not be attracted to him?

    The fact that he started having nightmares and disappearing days at a time after he met Eddie was only a coincidence.

    Summary

    "Black dogs are of evil things," said Adginna severely. "They bring bad luck. People say there is a heath hound made of mists and shadows that walks this countryside, a huge black dog with fiery red eyes, and all who see it or hear its howls will be dead by morning."

    Summary

    Lumina Lightbringer, aside from her odd name, is a rather ordinary college student. Living in a dorm with a gay male roommate, she wakes up one morning to find her shadow is darker than other people's, but thinks little of it. It is later that she find out that a powerful entity has possessed her shadow as its host, and can manipulate it into solid shapes, including a black shadow figure to interact with others, as he pleases. Said entity in Lumina's shadow, who she names "Doppelman," openly claims every action he does is driven by one or a combination of three motivations: Curiosity, boredom, or self-preservation.

    Though at first Doppelman tends to mess with her and embarrass her in public, things change during an encounter with Jeff the Killer. Soon the unwilling duo find themselves embroiled in frequent battles against Creepypasta villain after Creepypasta villain, including a being made entirely of dust, a Legend of Zelda ghost-virus named Ben, insane insomniacs prevented from sleeping by a Russian gas created by the former Soviet Union, zombies with brain parasites that persuade their victims to let them in instead of busting down doors, a wandering and murderous angel statue, and so much more.

    Summary

    Предупреждение гласит: не сходи с тропы, иначе эльфы заберут тебя. Иногда так и происходит. (Или как усталый наемник Крис Эванс влюбился в эльфа, а тот полюбил его.)

    Summary

    Ok, so I did this:

    Epic of Gilgamesh(Twin Peaks) + Egyptian book of the dead(Night Vale) + occasional pornishness = TwinVale

    What we're working with is he premise is that NV is an afterlife of sorts, and a couple characters from TP are psychopomps, and Denise specifically is Sidduri. Most of the other souls in the "friendly desert community" are just that - souls who either don't know or choose not to acknowledge they are dead. However, life continues as normal, for varying values of normal. Until StrexCorp, which is pretty much BOB having graduated from individualized evil to a larger scale.

    This is new and somewhat disjointed, so bear with. Not every chapter will be SuperSerious(tm), so once in a while I'll veer off into silliness. Even if nearly everyone is a ghost or a shade, they still have to live their (un)lives, so it's not terribly supernatural. They still have to go to the grocery stores, have sex, do taxes, etc.

    So enjoy this tour through my madness!

    Summary

    In all her life, Enjolras has never been to a party before, has never left the village she grew up in. The first time she decides to join her friends and try to let go a little for once, she meets R, a strange liar/storyteller who lives in the woods. Things kind of go from there.
    (this is very very very loosely based off Jerusalem, the play, but like very loosely. The only thing I reckon is the same is the aesthetic of it all)

    Summary

    Long ago, the ancestors of Hiccup Haddock III befriended the dragons of the Archipelago. Long ago, their descendants conquered the islands on dragonback and forced a peace between dragons and vikings. They named greatest of their number as their King, and his descendants have ruled the peoples of the Archipelago since.

    All this happened long ago. Before Hiccup's own parents were even born. The men and women who fought the wars of the past are all long dead. But the consequences of those wars are not. They ripple outwards, warp and change into forms that no one recognizes. In time, it is the grandchildren who find themselves fighting the wars of their grandparents.

    Summary

    The stories are all the same, anyway, he thinks: tales about the old gods, tales about when the People lived forever, tales about Lavellan’s flight from the Dales, tales about when elves lived in cities.

    ***

    An exploration of Dalish folklore and how Lavellan's relationship with the People's stories has changed through his life, with a particular emphasis on fixing some VERY ANNOYING plot elements tied to those stories. SPOILERS FOR THE ENDGAME OF DRAGON AGE: INQUISITION, especially in later chapters (when they are posted).
