    Summary

    The first day of the Archaeological Symposium has been long and tiring and Erwin just needs one cup of coffee before he attempts to find his way back to his hotel.

    “Just a long black, please.”

    The barista drawls something in Arabic, sounding mildly irritated as he points at the menu.

    “Coffee,” Erwin clarifies intelligently. He’s hot, he’s tired, he’s confused. He wants caffeine as soon as possible.

    Summary

    He knew on an intellectual level that everything was strange and scary. It should have been alarming, but all he felt was an all-encompassing nothingness— so heavy and overwhelming it wearied him just to think of engaging with the outside of his head.

    After pirates, after war, recovery dragged on at the speed of a slime crawler, and was exactly as disgusting an experience.

    Summary

    Being a slave on an alien planet was about as miserable as it sounds. The fact that the master of the household had slaughtered your friends, family, and neighbors like livestock, only added to your misfortune.

    However, you still continued to work without complaint, the last thing you need was to be murdered as well.

    But what happens when the capricious, aggressive master of the household (whose name you've still have yet to learn) suddenly had his eye on you?

    Summary

    So first of all, it’s totally not weird to watch your night scout sleeping.

    And finally, Emil really, really doesn't have a crush on Lalli.

    Summary

    Imagine how pissed off you would be if you somehow ended up in Middle Earth in time to help, but you didn’t speak Westron. Or Sindarin. Or Khuzdul. All you have are proper nouns, and some random phrases like Mellon, and Amralime, and, oh yeah, the inscription from the One ring. because that’s going to go over well when you start spouting off long forgotten verse in the black tongue of Mordor….
    So instead of eloquently explaining yourself and saving lives and falling in love with a character of your choice, you have to chase them around like a slightly more verbose Hodor, trying to learn a language and keep the dumb bastards alive.
    ------------------
    Well, it had to happen to someone eventually, and Pissed Off is definitely the way to describe it when it happens to her. But she still tries to do her duty to the fandom and keep the Durins alive just in case it isn't a nightmare after all.

    Summary

    “I guess you understand that I have no idea what you’re saying, huh?” You cocked your head at him with a disconcerted frown. “I’m lost. I have no idea where I am, and I’m terrified.”
     


    You, the reader, are one of many survivors of a war that has almost single-handedly destroyed Earth by 2030. Content that life couldn't get any worse, you're suddenly thrust into a world where everyone speaks gibberish, nobody can understand you, and you're hearing a voice in your head that insists they can help.

    You battle demons, close a few rifts, and you're suddenly being called the Herald.

    Suddenly, the decaying streets of New York don't seem so bad anymore...
