    Summary

    If he knew the last secret Goro still hid from him, would Kurusu still have insisted he live? Would he still show so much compassion? Or is it the very reason why he shows compassion in the first place?
    He must have known. It's the only reason Goro can think of for Kurusu to save him like this. Not for himself, of course, but for Kurusu's child. Of course. That must be why.
    Not for Goro.

     

    Goro finds out he's pregnant, and everything changes, because the father is dead — until he isn't. He finds support where he never expected to.

    Until someone finally lets Gerard hold onto them, and that person stays with him.

    Summary

    Most of the time Changkyun enjoyed living in a small town, because of how quieter it was compared to bigger cities, but not too quiet. His town, however had something about it, something that made Changkyun's skin crawl, and maybe it was the fog that seemed to always hang over the tress and buildings, or just how paranoid he always was about things like this, which was more possible. (Still, there was something incredibly unnerving about the shadows that lurked in the darkness whenever he closed his eyes at night.

    If he could, he'd stay at home forever.)

    Summary

    Tony is a mutant.

    Despised by his father, and rescued by Charles Xavier, Tony grew up in a school for people just like him. Eventually, as all children do, he has to leave. Tony goes to run his company at the age of twenty one, and somewhere along the way, accidentally becomes a superhero, not just a mutant.

    He has a new team, full of people who don't understand who he really is, but when Magneto rises out of the woodwork to do battle with the armoured Avenger, maybe they'll find out.

    And of course, his old family and team are waiting for him.

    Summary

    Love is a shambling thing, gray-faced and gasping. It moves in from the west, the setting sun behind it. Those who see it avert their eyes. Love does not eat or drink, love separates its many teeth and consumes. Love is a shambling thing, grey-faced and gasping. -Let’s not dwell on our corpse strewn past. Let’s celebrate our corpse strewn future!

    Expect: Sex. Romance. Freedom. Violence. Mystery. Intrigue. Embarrassment. Candy. Vapors. Swords (and other weaponry). Blood. Fire. Consequences. Black Humor. Kink-shaming fine art. Beauty. Elegant and finely crafted links. Music. Mercy. Reconciliation. Murk. Mire. Liars. Truth. Magic. God. Miracles. Monsters. Cold hard science. Dick jokes. Vaj jokes. Even more fart jokes. Drugs. Politics. Revolution. Love. The glorious war of sibling affection. Ghosts. In this Family, we bury our secrets and our relatives alive. Speak, or eat your heart raw and flush with blood. Wolves. Winter. Demons. Hell. Freedom. Beauty. Truth. Love.

    The secret to a long life lies in how acutely you perceive Time; and if you're afraid of the dark, which can't be seen through, don't be. Most of the truly frightening things are too small to be seen or inside your body already.
