    Summary

    The path is gone. No trace of it between the gnarled roots of oak trees casting lacy shadows on the forest floor. Darcy steps carefully over a tumble of rocks, that might have once been a wall and now stand as the marker where the veil is thin. Parkland becomes the wild woods of the stories held in memory, and tattered books rotting with age.

    ---

    Summary

    It's not that unusual for there to be two conventions taking place in a hotel at the same time. But in this case, yeah, maybe it is just a little bit odd.

    Summary

    There was a legend between the gods. That when the red moon has risen, and everything is enshrouded in darkness and chaos, the Fifth Horseman would arrive. It was tale long before the earth was formed. Everyone thought of this as a myth, a tale to spread fear in the gods. The gods laughed it off thinking it was nothing but a fairy tale.

    It was not so. Not for one Seraphina Pitchiner, Goddess of the earth, and Mother to all Nature. Not when visions began to come to her in her sleep. She would bare the child whom all would be subjected to cower under. This child would bring death to those that walked in its path.

    So when Seraphina found herself pregnant with the child of a unknown stranger. She hid herself from the world and every god out there, thinking no one could nor would ever find her. She was wrong. Terribly wrong.

    Summary

    One dark autumn night in the Shire, a rejected suitor leaves a harvest festival with a heavy heart - and a head swimming with eerie stories. Particularly of a new terror never seen in the Shire before: the ghastly spectre the locals call the Faceless Horseman.

     

    Those familiar with The Red Book of Westmarch will recognise this as a rustic, romanticised, and garbled hobbit-centric account of certain alarming events that occurred in the Shire in the autumn of TA 3018, on the eve of the War of the Ring.

    Those familiar with more recent literature will note that this story bears such a strong resemblance to the plot of Washington Irving's story "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow," one realises Mr Irving must have had some passing acquaintance with Middle-earth folklore.

    Summary

    Dean Winchester is sworn to protect the town of Willowsbend, and he takes his job seriously. Somewhere along the way, however, he realized he wasn't alone; he has a great partner named Benny, his brother Sam, a bunch of crazy friends, and of course, his long-term partner Cas, who just so happens to be a witch.

    When Cas moved to the town of Willowsbend, he did so with two goals in mind: 1) Start a coffee shop, and 2) fit in. So far, things are going according to plan, but somewhere along the way, he got sucked into small-town life, and he found himself getting attached to the residents of Willowsbend. Cas does what he can to care for his friends, but he's learning that it's not always easy.

    When a newcomer arrives in Willowsbend and takes an interest in one of their own, the residents of Willowsbend are forced to examine their own preconceptions, and they're reminded not to take what they love for granted, because it could easily be stripped away from them. After all, children can be so trusting....

    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

    "Deberíamos olvidar que esto alguna vez pasó, dejarlo aparte de nuestras vidas y pensar que todo esto sólo fue una agradable equivocación. Un efusivo error."

    ♠♠♠♠♠♠♠

    Sakura es una chica promedio que tiene una vida rutinaria de estudiante, por lo menos en parte, ya que su mejor amigo Deidara ha estado actuando extraño desde que se unió a ese grupo misterioso llamado Akatsuki. Deidara no habla mucho del grupo, pero si menciona de su relación con varios de sus integrantes, en especial Sasori, quien parece tener aficiones parecidas con su concepción del “Arte”. Deidara compromete a Sakura en un encuentro con Sasori, en la que debe hacerse pasar por su ex-novia. Sin embargo, Sasori les dice a ambos que está interesado en Sakura y ve un cierto potencial en ella. Deidara no lo acepta, ya que Sasori dice abiertamente que le interesa que ella participe como miembro activo en Akatsuki.

    ¿Qué harás, ahora que ves a Deidara temblando de miedo por malos recuerdos de Akatsuki? ¿Qué oculta en realidad este grupo del que no sabe nada? ¿Y por qué han empezado a ocurrir sucesos extraños precisamente después de éste encuentro?

    Summary

    Jean is a brat stranded at the seaside in what he's completely sure is going to be the worst summer of his life.
    Marco has eyes like deer and freckles like stars, and smells like salt and the sea.
    Both are boys far from home for very different reasons; but home doesn't always have to be somewhere so much as someone. Especially when the sea hides secrets and strange things that are sometimes forced to come ashore.

    Or; in which one Jean Kirschtein's ruined summer is vastly improved by a certain Marco Bodt.
