    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

    "You're sure this will work?" Lothar questions.

    Khadgar gives him an innocent look. His hands are already outstretched in front of him, ready to cast the spell. If they are going to continue to fight the orcs who are still scattered over Azeroth, they are going to need help. He found a spell that is supposed to summon a being of equal or greater strength and wit. The description is a bit vague, but it is all they have to go on for the moment, and they can’t afford to waste time.

    Summary

    Lumen is the Listener of the Dark Brotherhood, and a very reluctant Dragonborn. She is also the most unlucky elf to have ever existed. If being forced to face Alduin wasn't proof enough of that, then being sent to Thedas most certainly is.

    A Skyrim/Dragon Age crossover. This series will primarily be short drabbles.

    Summary

    You don't remember all of the details, on account of the nasty bump you took to your noggin upon impact that knocked you out for the last three hours, but you remember enough to know that you were in a super awesome space battle with an Alternian drone, trying to keep them from delivering some very important data about your home planet to their evil alien empress, and just as they opened a wormhole to escape, you desperately tried to stop them by propelling yourself forward with a gust of ion charged space wind and ended up getting sucked through the tear in space as well, like a spider getting flushed down a toilet. Now you are here...wherever here is.

    (John has to survive in this weird place full of glowing things and intelligent(?) salamanders until help can arrive. He's not the only one who crashed here, though, and the other one is NOT happy. Is this planet big enough for two?)

    Summary

    Alternate universe. In this world, there was no Sgrub session, and a few events from the human space age have happened earlier, but these are only minorly related to the plot. After a failed Alternian invasion of Earth, humans managed to turn the tide and end up winning the war, and enslaved the entirety of the Alternian people.

    John decides to purchase a troll without being fully aware of the reality of the situation, instead believing much of "common knowledge" instead, and realizes the reality of what humanity has really done and tries his best to cope with a language and cultural barrier and create an environment for his new troll to live in.

    Rating and warnings are for later chapters, and are a bit conservative, but I prefer to rate my fics higher if I'm on the fence about a rating or warning.

    Summary

    Karkat Vantas always accepted the fact that he was not going to live past nine sweeps. It was just a certainty of his sad, miserable life. At least, that was until his friends found out and decided to hatch a plan to get him out of the Alternian empire. A plan that actually worked.

    Now, he was stranded on an alien planet, at the mercy of some strange creature that was either trying to help him or going about some freaky ritual of flirting with your food before you eat it.

    Also, aliens have sunglasses.

    He was better off dying on Alternia, wasn't he?

    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

    There is both a good side and a bad side to Olivia's situation. On the good side, she finds herself meeting not one, but two, of the most beautiful people she had ever seen. On the bad side, she had almost drowned and now finds herself in foreign lands surrounded by people who speak a foreign tongue. She finds herself quickly getting sick of the outdoors, but has no way of getting back home. Chaos ensues.

    It was bound to happen. New Yorkers aren't known for their temper, after all.
