    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.

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

    Summary

    This is an essay, not fic. A while back I remember saying that I was going to be writing a little bit about Beauty and the Beast stories and Red and Liz and the Lizzington ship. Since I needed to reconnect with the characters right now, I thought this would be a perfect opportunity. This is meta, not fiction. Assumes a Red/Liz pairing bias.
    [Now Added] -- a second piece of Red-centric meta, Red, Schrodinger's Daughter, and the Rusalka, on Red's destructive/self-destructive tendencies and my theory of why he may be so drawn to Liz.

As Bolshevik resentment grows, Stiles is thrown head first into a world of magic and folklore that he'd only previously dreamed about. This is what happens when a boy from the city meets a wolf in the snow.
