    Summary

    Josh has a great life, but that doesn't mean he's happy. He's spends all his time working at Guitar Center, being a loner at school, and pining for the unattainable Tyler Joseph who probably doesn't even know Josh exists.

    Except that, unbeknownst to either of them, they've started sharing dreams.

    Get the tissues. We're going to face our issues.

    Summary

    Modern AU: Hawke's name might almost be funny if it weren't quite so true, but through such accuracy and tragedy she's led towards family she never expected to find, towards healing and salvation she never could have believed she'd ever deserve.

    This story is centred around neurodivergence and broad mental health issues, and how powerfully music can affect tones, moods, and even lives is going to be a strong theme as well. Warnings will always be placed in the tags, which will be updated as needed, as well as in the beginning notes of each chapter, even at the cost of potential spoilers if it ever comes to that.

    Summary

    Tentokrát to nebylo kvůli Snapeovi. Běžel za nimi a pak se zastavil, nekřičel. Nebyl schopen cokoli říct, jen ho sledoval odcházet.

    Když půjdeš dál.
    Když se mě pokusíš zastavit.
    Neuděláš to.

    Summary

    "You- you're not real," I stutter, and grip tighter onto the ladder, looking down at the red-haired boy.
    "Um," he pinches his left forearm, "pretty sure I am." He frowns and raises his dark eyebrows. "Now, can you please get down from there so we can talk?
    I shake my head, and crawl into the treehouse closing the trapdoor after me. There's the sound of a steadily approaching creaking noise and I hide in the corner shamefully, tucking my knees up to my chest.
    There's desperate knocking on the trapdoor.

    Summary

    When Elijah moved to a new town, he expected the typical small town bigotry. He didn't expect to meet a vampire. A very attractive vampire. Who was also attracted to him. But not everything was as it seemed. Elijah had a secret.

    This story is an extended metaphor. It was created as a paper for a class. We were instructed to write a fanfiction or story that used vampires as a metaphor for a social topic (issue, problem, etc.). I invite everyone to guess what the metaphor is. In the 11th chapter, I will explain it.

    This is mostly an original work. I use the idea of a vampire family unit. But that is it. The vampires don't sparkle. (I feel confidant labeling this as an original work with several Twilight influences in the way the world is set up. Anything remotely Twilightesque I do not claim any right too.)

    A.k.a. Stiles’s journey to the wonderful world of aphrodisiac foods, including but not being limited to fellating a banana, eating fresh figs, and arranging a chocolate fondue.

    Summary

    Each year, a mysterious mark shows up on an innocent person who must face the Five Kings: demon, gods, or otherworldly beings that reign in absolute terror. They reside in the hearts and minds of each person, turning neighbors and friends into faint shadows of themselves, or driving the unsuspecting mad. The power of the Five Kings seems to last eternally, unable to be stopped or killed. And it is up to the Hero Victoria to succeed where countless others have failed.
