    Summary

    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

    Sometimes Steve forgets that Tony is human underneath all the metal, under all the red and gold. After Tony dies he spends time in Tony's workshop, goes through his schematics, his unfinished works. It's there that he discovers binarily augmented retro framing, and there where he decides he's going to finish the program so maybe, just maybe, he can see Tony again and tell him all the things he should have.

    Summary

    In the year 2021, Victor Nikiforov, retired professional figure skater and Number One Husband, steps into a taxi to make his way home from the grocery store, arm full of vegetables and fruits to bring home to his beautiful husband and loyal old dog. A sharp sound and a blur of color is the only warning before Victor wakes up in the year 2016, sitting in a first class seat on an ascending airplane headed for Fukuoka, Japan.

    --

    A "Victor died and time traveled to the past to relive falling in love with Yuuri but it's a secret for some reason" fic from Yuuri's perspective. Rated T (currently) for hopefully-not-too-excessive use of swears. Follows the anime with slight divergence until the cup of china, where the rating will change and so will the rest of story. Companion fic to be released at the conclusion of this one.

    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 when it comes to that.

    Summary

    Steve is haunted by the ghosts of his past. One ghost in particular. But he doesn’t mind very much.

    Unrepentant tooth-rotting fluff, garnished with just a teeny tiny sprig of angst. For flavour.

    Summary

    Train stations are the best place to watch, permanent fixtures in a world of transience - caught in a stream of movement and travel but always forever stationary.

    jughead would leave, he swears, if there wasn't so much to stay for.

    Summary

    When extremist Ronan the Accuser broke away from the Kree Empire and embarked on a genocidal crusade of his own, a small world of totally serious, pretty literal people strove for survival by forging a peaceful (albeit begrudging) alliance with Xandar.  Drax the Destroyer was among this planet's four representatives, who were elected by their planet's largest tribes and were the first of their species to speak with Nova Prime.

    Needless to say, the road to Xandar wasn't easy to travel.  

    In a metaphorical sense.  

    Because a road between two planets isn't feasible to build, unless one of the planets involved was technologically advanced enough or mind-bogglingly rich enough to afford the incredibly heavy duty materials required  to make the thing safe enough to cross, and you very well can't travel an unbuilt--alright, alright, I'll stop right there.

    The first of a three-part origin story about how Drax the Destroyer wound up a miserable asshole doing time at Kyln.

    Our evil is just a product of our good.

    Blurryface believes this.

    After all, it's the goodness in others that brings out the bad in us.

    Summary

    The shadow was there out of habit, out of conscious and very real fear of failure. Habit because he knows that there is no one there. But he can never be certain.

    The flash of red could be so many different things. A flash of red accompanied by yellow, and green, his past and ending. A flash of red, his sins, goals, and retribution?
    But no, he knows what that flash of red means, because if he catches it long enough it will turn green.

     

    Jason is bleeding out on the dirty floor of his second to worst safe-house, in the third worst part of Gotham. He has to make a choice. Seek help or succumb to the darkness always moving closer in the corner of his eye.

    Summary

    Stiles grew up on a ship with his mother Claudia until he was fifteen. After a whirlwind of events, he ends up back on his home planet with his father and is thrown into normal, civilian life, complete with school, work and unrequited love. It takes years to adjust from his previously explosive lifestyle. However, just when he believes he can put his past behind, he's quite literally swept right back into the thick of things.

    A futuristic, steampunk inspired universe with witty mechanics, an unfolding mystery and a ship crew that must be some kind of alien species because their eyes keep glowing.
    .
    .
    .
    “I heard a rich ship landed in the docks just a few hours ago," Mary called from near the oven.
    Stiles couldn’t help his piqued interest from showing as he sat up a bit straighter on the stool.
    “You and yer gossiping,” Doc shook his head as he wiped down the counter for anticipated customers, “going and givin’ the boys ideas, now.”
    Stiles blushed and shot the man a sheepish smile.
    “Oh, stop it. He’s done with all that shenanigans, now aren’t you darling?”
    With a mouth full of bread he grinned and mumbled out a ‘yes ma’am.’
