    Summary

    When the broken, half-crazed second prince of Asgard fell from the BiFrost, he fully expected to die.

    He didn't.

    Instead, he lands in what can only be described as a world so hellish it defies description. At first, he thinks perhaps he might have hope of rescue. That his family, despite it all, might come, and things may be fixed.

    But time passes, and no one comes, with no weapons or tools at hand to keep away the dark and what lurks within it. The things lurking at the edges of the universe have gone too long without a tool to ignore a fallen god, but the Trickster does not go down easily. Struggling to hang on until there is barely any sanity remaining, an unexpected source of help comes, in the form of another lost, abandoned soul.

    Taking up arms together, the two are reborn anew, and together, the new hybrid steps out into the universe, thirsting for vengeance against a mountain of injustices and a universe seeming to conspire to tear them apart. If the Mad Titan desires the Tesseract so deeply that war must be waged for it, then the Trickster and his other half will be all too glad to give a show...

    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.

    Summary

    HELP THEM, SAVE THEM, I TRIED. The story of the downfall of Freddy Fazbear's, told by a mistreated fox. The Mangle, as most now call it, used to entertain the children with her pal Polly. This changed after the first day. With a horrible experience on her first day, the children saw her different. As only a robot, instead of a living breathing being. She chose to look on the bright side though with help from her friends. But only she could see the truth. Behind what was really happening. The truth behind the mask....A puppet's mask.

    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

    Eggsy thought that finally his life was turning out to be that kind of movie. A good movie with a damn good happy ending. But it wasn’t. Because he was responsible for numerous mistakes he had made, regretful for what he had (not) said, and guilty for what he had (not) done. Above all things, he missed Harry Hart. A bit much, probably. He could imagine Harry still being around him so vividly that he thought he almost saw it.

    Wait, he did.

    Summary

    When Bucky Barnes starts having visions of disaster befalling the Earth, he returns home to warn the Avengers, only to find that he's too late. The world has become a desolate mess, and somehow, in all of this, the only other survivor he can find is Natasha Romanoff. The two of them journey across the ruins of New York City—now plagued by hungry dinosaurs and marauding robots—to reach Stark Tower and learn more about what has happened to the world so that they can fix it. That should be easy enough for people like them, but emotions—and Natasha's own treacherous memories—might get in the way...

    A story of dinosaur battles and post-apocalyptic companionship containing minor poetry and major robots. Mostly compliant to comics canon. Takes place sometime after Black Widow #8.

    Summary

    This will be my baby. Inspired by my prompt fic, Amen, or Whatever. I'm reworking it to be a somewhat canon-compliant timeline, with alternate events taking place. So basically it plausibly could be canon.

    The chapters are short because I'm doing about one a day. (I like torturing myself.)

    Castiel is an angel in his Father's army sent to pull the Righteous Man from perdition before (or so he believes) the man can break the First Seal of the apocalypse.

    Dean Winchester sold his soul to give his brother a second chance at life, and now has to pay that price in Hell. But was the price too steep?

    An in depth retelling (and occasional reworking) of events that have happened on The Road So Far. Possible canon divergence later on.

    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

    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."
