    Summary

    'I don’t want to die here, I don’t want to die here' he repeated to himself, over and over again until the words had lost their meaning and felt large and obtrusive in his mouth. “How old are you, boy?” Captain Styles asked, plainly. Louis hadn’t been expecting that, no, he’d been expecting the Captain to demand a case from Louis.

    “Eighteen, sir” Louis replied, following Zayn’s guideline as to how to address the Captain. At the very least Louis might be treated to a kinder death than the boy before Zayn if he addressed him properly.

    The Captain squinted, “You don’t look it, boy, I don’t appreciate liars. Now why don’t we try that again, shall we?” he offered nicely, obviously taking pity on Louis. He was showing mercy to Louis, a trait he had heard the Captain was not exactly famous for. The dread began to crawl up Louis’s throat and he feared it might just rise out of him. His took a deep breath before daring to open his mouth again, forcing the feeling back into his stomach.

    “Going on seventeen, Captain” Louis said again, quieter now.

    Or the one where Louis is trying to start a new life as a pirate. Harry just so happens to be a most notorious pirate of the time. It's 1680. Love happens.

    Summary

    7th year Battle of Hogwarts

    Harry Potter stood before Voldemort, knowing he had to die, for Voldemort to be killed. Surrounded by laughing Death Eaters, Harry wondered why, why did his life had to end this way. Why did he have to be the one to sacrifice his life, for people who barely cared for him. As the green light of the Avada Kedavra spell raced towards him, he wondered, ‘If I had to do it all again, would I still make the same choice, I wonder?”

    Summary

    'The first thing Shouyou noticed was that he had been wrong, about Kageyama’s eyes. They weren’t cold. They were instead like the kindling for a flame, intense and boring straight into Shouyou, lighting him from the inside out.

    The second thing he noticed was that Kageyama was staring back at him with the same expression Shouyou was sure was on his own face.

    Pure, unfiltered desire.'

    --

    When lowly acolyte Hinata is tasked with bringing his temple's monthly tax payment to the Centurion's Villa, he hardly expects to have an encounter with Kageyama, the lavishly wealthy landowner and decorated army general himself. But Kageyama turns out to be far more interested in Hinata than the money, believing him to be a gift sent from the gods themselves. Before Hinata realizes what's happening, he finds himself agreeing to stay at the villa, where Kageyama can spoil him to his heart's content.

    To Hinata's surprise, he soon finds himself growing attached to the brutally blunt yet strangely sweet Kageyama; but he is worried he won't be able to hold the attention of a man who has everything, even as Kageyama starts to become everything to him.

    Summary

    Stand up. Breathe. Run. Survive.
    Back on his knees, Harry can wipe the blood from his eyes and see again, blurred and in slow motion, but he can see. He doesn’t think, he just moves. He gets to his feet, stumbling as his brain goes white in time with the lightning strike.
    Run. Run. Run.
    It’s 1985. All the cool kids are wearing Members Only jackets and acid wash jeans. The gay rights movement might be gaining traction around the country, but for a small town in Colorado, even listening to Queen is an invitation for a beating. Louis Tomlinson’s life is turned upside down when he comes face to face with the afterlife, and is given one seemingly simple mission: save Harry Styles.

    Summary

    When the Statue of Liberty slides into view, the whole ship roars. It’s deafening. Bucky throws his fist in the air and yells along with everyone else. His heart is in his throat. The Statue of goddamn Liberty. Bucky wants to climb up her robe and kiss her sour green face.

    The cheers rise up again as they go by her, and then die back down; most of the guys are just happy to sit and smile and watch the city float lazily into focus. They know they’ve got days more of barracks and bunks and cheap train seats before they’ll get to see their families in Pittsburgh, or Columbus, or Chicago. But Bucky’s home, he can see Brooklyn, and he laughs and shades his eyes from the sun and feels crazy with happiness, and this has to be the slowest fucking boat in the world, but at least he has a good view while he dies of impatience.

    ------

    In 1945, Bucky comes home from the war.

    Although the Joestars have long since come to terms with Jonathan's death, for Dio, the end of the nineteenth century is still yesterday. The world has changed much, but people are still the same. He is still the same. And he still wants what he cannot have.

    A reimagining of the years between Dio's rediscovery and the start of Stardust Crusaders featuring wildly artistic interpretations of Jojoverse mechanics (specifically Ripple, bloodlines, Stands, vampires, immortality, and 'Heaven').
