    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.)

    Summary

    For thousands of years, humans have wondered about the world around them. In search for answers, they came up with stories to entertain themselves and explain life's greatest mysteries; stories that despite changing times, are still well loved and told to this day. The same is true for the inhabitants of the pokemon world.

    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

    In a long line of purebloods, it was forgotten that the Malfoys once had banshees in their blood line. Though Lucius is aware of this, he believed that the trait is quite diluted that it would never show up in his son or in any generations.

    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

    Sehun loses his favorite shirt, but whose fault is it really?
    Around midday on the college campus, a small creature skirted under people’s feet. Where it came from, no one in the courtyard could say. It was only a mere two feet tall and slightly greenish, its head too large for its body. Its horns caught on clothing and snagged pants left and right; surprisingly its long claws and teeth did not tear anything. It moved quickly under the crowd’s feet, it seemed disoriented. The wooden club the small hairy creature carried scraped along the ground behind it.
    Too bright. Too noisy.
    Someone shrieked. The creature shook and bolted away from the crowd, not to be seen for quite some time after that.

Through love and companionship she will be calmed, but through anger and fear she will burn her malefactors. Though her power is chaotic, her soul is strong yet tender. She shall not be destroyed."

    Summary

    Legends say that the gods and goddesses of the world once wandered the land, bestowing their blessings upon the many people and villages who gave offerings and made worship to the heavenly beings. The most powerful of the deities was that of the moon; both benevolent and malevolent, he was most beloved and feared of the gods.
    But one night, a harrowing storm shook the heavens; and it is said that the moon, which once shown bright in his place in the sky, was stained crimson as if he had been soaked in blood.
    Ever since that night, a shadow has passed over the moon. A blackness that brings misfortune to those caught under his sight and evil things of shadow and flame that roam the lands and corruption to the hearts of even the most pious of people.
    Slowly belief in the moon deity was shunned and forbidden for threat that it would cease the spreading corruption across the lands, but it was for naught.
    Thus, after several generations the benevolence of the celestial being faded from memory to become merely that of a cautionary tale told to children to be wary of darkened nights.
