    Summary

    A vignette a day until season 12 begins... These are a mixture of the happy, the sad, the plausible, the ridiculous, the short, and the very short — basically as many possible ways I could write in short order, with the whimsical thought that one of them might be where the writers are going too.

    Summary

    After Papyrus leaves the Underground, his first stop is the closest cemetery in order to search for bodies and find a Font capable of waking his fallen brother Sans and/or release Horror from their underground prison. However when he gets there he finds that someone else has not only had the same idea, but also has already taken all the bodies! To make matters worse, his stupid friends get themselves into trouble with a bunch of Fonts and now Papyrus and Flowey must work together to rescue them before they get themselves killed.

    Unfortunately that's hard to do when you're suffering from constant memory loss.

    Good news is, Sans hasn't really fallen down, he just got his full font back and is sleeping heavily like Comic Sans tends to do...or maybe that's NOT good news, because now Papyrus only has a limited amount of time before his brother wakes up and turns into a destructive cartoon! Can Team Cute Truth rescue everyone before time runs out? And what do they do next if they succeed?

    This is a comedy/horror and you won't understand it if you don't read Fonttale first. Enjoy your story!

    Summary

    It started with a relatively simple shift, many many years ago. And from there, a great many things began to change throughout this particular timeline. Some characters are absent during the events of the main story, while an old friend with a new face rules the Underground. The Prince pulls double duty as Royal Scientist, and under his rule the Underground has been focused on scientific progress. After all, there has to be another way...

    Into this high-tech panoply of despair, one last human falls. Those who climb Mt Ebott are said to never return. You wonder why exactly that was, as you enter the cave. You can't help but feel like you've been here before... As you approach the hole, you fail to see the old root as your foot snags on it. The hole seems to rush towards you as you fall into the depths of the Earth. ...why is this so familiar?

    [Name the fallen human]

    Summary

    He is a man out of his time, a man out of time. It’s subtle, small – but so is a splinter, and eventually it will start to ache and ache, like the bittersweet pain of pressing a bruise, the teeth of gears that are just a little bit imperfect for each other. He doesn’t belong, in this era of fancy gadgets and silent wars that are fought without being fought, and nothing lets him forget it.

     

    Or, into the mind of Steve Rogers.

    Summary

    In Magnussen’s office, Agra intended to kill Sherlock and shot in the heart.

    "The bullet is foolish, the bayonet is wise". It seems that Alexander Suvorov was good in "surgery".

    In this paper, I discuss mostly medical aspects of Sherlock’s wound and give some information in forensic medicine and ballistics. In the final part, I consider a possible motivation for the assassination.

    Summary

    Агра пришла к Магнуссену с целью убить Шерлока и стреляла на поражение.

    "Пуля дура, а штык - молодец" (А.В. Суворов). Похоже, Александр Васильевич неплохо разбирался в вопросах "хирургии" )

    Первоначально эта мета планировалась как ответ исследованию британского врача, которая совершенно неверна с медицинской точки зрения. Мета опубликована, и автор перевода дала разрешение на использование ее текста для анализа. Однако, разбор «полета» превратился в большое исследование, в котором итоге приняли участие не меньше 20 человек — профессиональных врачей и софандомников. В этой мете я доказываю в основном медицинские вопросы и вопросы судебно-медицинской экспертизы, также касаюсь ситуации, в которой был произведен выстрел, а в конце предлагаю возможный мотив действиям Агры, потому что без мотива преступление понять нельзя.

    Summary

    "Well I'm stuck here," Bucky says, indicating his crutches. "And everyone else is either gone or busy. You could...if you could stay for a couple hours until my folks get back, I'll pay you for your time. I got an allowance. Ten bucks a week."

    Steve's jaw nearly drops onto the ground before he recovers. "Whadaya want me to do?"

    "Just...stick around? I'm bored. I got some games I need another person to play with, and my sister's not home. And...and, y'know, if I get hungry you can run over to the kitchen to get a snack for me. Stuff like that. You'd be like...like my personal manservant or something, for the day."

    Steve looks troubled.

    "I'll still pay you the five bucks," Bucky says, with a cheeky grin. "Please, it's so boring being laid up."

    Steve looks even more troubled; he glances at the other houses lining the street, and Bucky can tell he's calculating the likelihood that anyone else would take him up on his offer of janitorial services. A gust of wind blows by, coating Bucky's face with cold; he sees Steve shiver and, unconsciously, fold his arms across his chest.

    "Goin' once, goin' twice..."

    Summary

    When a twenty year-old Dishonored fan bearing an uncanny resemblance to the fic's author manages to somehow fall into the world of Dishonored, she decides to take it upon herself to fix everything that went wrong by saving the unjustly killed-off Jessamine Kaldwin.

    This single, theoretically simple, plot-altering action sets off a chain of events which become increasingly more unpredictable, and the (not brave, not-skilled-in-the-martial-arts) heroine realises that her knowledge of Dishonored doesn't mean she's all-powerful...

    Summary

    When you’ve done something embarrassing, it’s often best to face up to it gradually. Bit by bit. That was the approach Armitage Hux took. Although to be quite accurate, it was not a deliberate approach, more a case of how things eventually panned out.

    This is a story told in fragments, long and short, of how a ridiculous, self-important, stand-offish little nerd finds his awful trashy goth prince.

    Summary

    This is a multi-chapter handbook and meta (long) analysis that will show you in subsequent chapters the incredibly epic events foreshadowed (in the subtext) for the upcoming Season 10 of BBC's Doctor Who. (I'm getting my tissues ready.)

    If some episodes seem wrong or odd to you, like "Kill the Moon" (where the moon is an egg), that's great! Steven Moffat, the showrunner, wants you to notice and to ask why.

    We'll examine why there are weird things going on, like dragons hatching from the moon. This really is a sci-fi show, so what is going on? It may not be what you think. In fact, you have to look at the subtext for the real story of the Doctor.

    We’ll look at various metaphors like clocks and time, actual mirrors, character mirroring, along with colors, imagery, themes, and other subtext elements because they all add to and/or change how we should be viewing the episodes.
