    Summary

    Dean Smith is bad at stepping outside of his comfort zone, at being spontaneous, at living. But he learns more at college than he expected when he repeatedly crosses paths with a mysterious, blue-eyed restless punk named Castiel. Set against a backdrop of bookstores and bars, concerts and cappuccinos, Dean learns that sometimes living is as much about the paths we don't decide to take as the ones we do. He learns that the ultimate question isn't 'How do you find love?' because sometimes it finds you, but 'How do you make love stay?'

    Summary

    The setting? Modern day, regular world Earth as you know it. The story? Romance with a side of ugliness on top of that. Our main character would think it'd be easier if he didn't happen to be so clumsy. Maybe he's right, maybe he isn't. Ensemble

    Summary

    Will finds himself in Florence a year after "that night" on the trail of Hannibal. Still recovering from the psychological and emotional fall out, he seeks another, yes, psychiatrist to keep him stable. Unknown to Will, Hannibal and Bedelia have settled in Florence, too. Unknown to Hannibal, Will is in Florence with his new psychiatrist. Doctor Daniel Clayton has some empathic gifts of his own and it will be his misfortune that he bears a striking resemblance to Will. Each of them has an agenda and while Daniel and Will engage in therapy one chance encounter places them in a deadly game between Hannibal and Bedelia. But sometimes things are not always as they appear.

    A viper will devour another viper. But a mongoose can be trained to temper its bite.
    Whatever you are doing with Will Graham; stop.

    This story is updated with new chapters every weekend like a serial. If Fate should gather the shattered teacup and bring Hannibal and Will together again after Mizumono, then this fic should be most appealing.

    Summary

    Where Doctor Jem Moriarty looked down at what she had created as its pale eyes first opened. She took a step back. She shuddered at the hideousness of her creation. Oh, not its form. Its form was perfect. She had computer modelled every aspect of its flesh. She had accomplished what no other Alpha had. The creation of life without needing an Omega to gestate that life. To enter random chance into that creation. Her work. All the perfection that went into it was a horrible contrast with its watery eyes as it came awake for the first time.

    Where she turned away and where her creation went next.

    Summary

    She nodded, lips pursed thoughtfully. Her lipstick was perfect, like her hair and her neatly pressed blouse and skirt, and he wondered if that was because a pretty woman needed to project absolute control to be taken seriously, or for some internal reason. But they weren't here to talk about her. "How do you feel about 'Mister J?'"

    That was the way anonymous patients were referred to in psych literature, he knew, just a title and a letter, but that was also the kind of 'how do you feel' he could really get behind.

    His grin felt more real than it had in a long while. "Mister J will do," he pronounced. "Doctor Q."

    Summary

    When Sasuke learned that now he was going to be an editor for an A-list author, he felt proud. And then Itachi handed him the last chapter Naruto Uzumaki wrote. "This is shit," Sasuke uttered decidedly and hit the blonde on the head with a neatly pinned heap of paper. "Who are you?" the blonde blurted out, and the brunette's eye twitched. What. /AU, yaoi, rated M for later chapters.

    Summary

    "Icarus is flying too close to the sun
    Icarus's life, it has only just begun
    This is how it feels to take a fall
    Icarus is flying towards an early grave..."
    -Bastille, Icarus

    His name has become synonimised with falling.
    A flight too close to the sun.
    It grew too hot, melting his only support, and then he fell in a trail of burning feathers and scalding wax.
    Most assume this was the end of the story.
    But what if that boy has something else to tell?

    A Story set in an alternate future where the world is ruled by major empires and their royal families, a cyborg monster stalks the corridors of the Labyrinth where the worst criminals are sent for punishment, and romance sparks between a servant and a Prince.

    More warnings may be added later on.

    http://pw-kink-meme.dreamwidth.org/3082.html?thread=7046922#cmt7046922

    Apollo tries to impress Mr. Wright by being the office whore, having sex with numerous people, and using literary devices to enhance his recollection of the sex. Unfortunately, his boss is a total hard-ass, and to finally please him, Apollo must use a forbidden recourse...

    Crack!porn at its absolute WORST. Be warned. Some of you might think that this is genius, while most will believe that this is shit. I subscribe to the latter camp.

    Done for the Phoenix Wright Kink Meme, Part 28.

    Summary

    "And the only solace I find is that you and the rest of your ilk will never grace the halls of human history with your wit or ingenuity. You will die, and your absence of an impact on the course of the human race will doom you to be forgotten. You will amount to nothing." Double Dee says what's on his mind, and Kevin holds him to it.
