    Maybe it’s not this guy’s fault he’s not helping Matt to die. Fisk never did like the easy way out.

    Just as well, Matt decides, testing his strength against the blanket and failing and not crying don’t you dare cry. He never liked the easy way much either.

    Summary

    The term "emortality" is intended to indicate near-immortality as opposed to absolute immortality.

    It is by the Gods what we do, who we are, and what we become. It is by the Gods that we die, appraise, that we crave revenge. From so, the merciless, remorseful mega-giants are aonian and eternal because, well, that's just the way of the universe.

    Or at least that's how it used to be.

    Now, no one's heard from Gods for centuries, since the Gods allowed humans to decide their short fates.

    Because in reality, Zeus is gone. Persephone is dead. Hera has taken control. Some have chosen to live among mortals, while a few are still confined to their immortal duties, such as workaholic Hades (David) who's placed on mandatory vacation and is to room with the Luck Deity (Lenny). But when he meets the reincarnation of his late wife (Sydney) he's torn to stay on Earth or to remain a God. But Gods are prohibited to be with mortals anymore, no matter who they are.

    Meanwhile a malevolent spirit is out for Hades' throne while he's away, planning to use Hades' precious metals, his high position, and his face as a path to become all-powerful.

    Summary

    The story of two souls... Their fates entwined as hard as the rope in a sail... A story of love, betrayal, adventure and the belief that if you love someone... you will always find each other... A story of the lives of Thorin Oakenshield and Thranduil The Elven King, starting from the very beginning...
    Kind of long songfic: Demons - Imagine Dragons (each chapter - one lyric)

    I was shivering at your energy. You were so unbelievably close. I could feel your breath; a soft warm puff ; rhythmical and increasingly quickening, at the side of my neck.

    I could taste the need in your aura. I could see and feel it in your eyes and body. My purpose in my eternity had shifted. From now on, I knew. I knew that my life was yours.

    Summary

    Elrond, newly arrived in the West, and Celebrían discuss family, Rivendell, getting settled in Tol Eressëa, missing Middle-earth, the House of Fëanor as pastries, and the Breaking of the World. Includes brief depiction of Celebrían’s torment in the dens of the orcs, and a fencing lesson with Maglor. Probably in this particular version of Arda, it was Celebrían who invented Lembas.

    Follows from In Avallónë by the Sea

    Summary

    During their seemingly regular first year of college, the Powerpuff Girls' and Rowdyruff Boys' lives change in ways they could have never imagined. "We can know only that we know nothing. And that is the highest degree of human wisdom." -Leo Tolstoy.

    Companion to Hard to Control Myself, but can be read without it! Rated for language, action, mature themes, and some tame teenagery fun. Now complete!

    Summary

    Lailah made Rose feel odd sometimes...certainly not in a bad way, though...or maybe it was bad and she was too dumb to see it? If ignorance was bliss, she didn't want to know...didn't want to give up those feelings.

    Summary

    In a world forged with black-steel skyscrapers and lights that gleam like a million molten stars, there is but one unicorn left as humankind forgets in the face of technology, and magic immemorial dies down into an echo. Bewildered by this revelation, the unicorn decides to venture out beyond the safety of his lilac wood in search for the others. Along the way, he encounters six strangers who may either help or hinder his quest.

    A boy who may be the last descendant of the old magic. An ex-pianist drowning himself in verse and graveyard shifts. An underground rapper, purveyor of indie music and chronic bibliophile. A dancer with a sunlit smile and bleeding heart. A cat who's by no means an actual cat and doesn't even bother to hide it. A prince — the son of an acclaimed entertainment company's CEO, cloud-soft, lonely — who almost certainly knows more than he lets on. And the last unicorn.

    Summary

    "All his life, he would remember that moment: the silver bells of Hithlum greeting the rising sun, and then, as if in answer to the bells, voices raised in song, the voices of the Eldar, impossibly clear, impossibly beautiful. "

    In which Hador Lórindol comes to Hithlum, swears fealty to Fingolfin, and follows his lord to the end. And doesn't regret a thing. (Well, maybe that one embarrassing misunderstanding about the Feanorians....)

    Thanks to pp for beta reading.

    Summary

    Bedridden Thane and Joker must defend the Normandy from a mercenary attack while the rest of the crew is on shore leave.

    Thought it would be cool to have two characters who never interact come together and muse about illness and mortality. Probably in three-ish chapters?

    Summary

    You are not a good person, and you never were. Society made that decision for you. Ah, but some just have a tendency to be born that way.

    If you must, call it the City of Angels. But only few were ever brave enough to lift their eyes to the hole in the sky from which those angels fell.

    They gathered the bones and feathers from the dust and formed their own wings. And so shall they rule, or die trying.

    Summary

    Meng’s messages to Jinling and Jingyan are short and carefully edited. He writes about the skirmishes that lead to battles and the battles that lead to stalemates. He writes about the snow, how it drifts in the valleys and low places, how it melts beneath the sun and freezes again during the night. He writes about his generals, his lieutenants, and his captains. He writes about his strategist.

    He writes, Mei Changsu is a skilled tactician. His insights have led to profitable battles with low casualty rates. He silently mouths to himself, He can no longer ride a horse. I don’t know how he will travel back to Jinling, and then writes, With Mei Changsu’s assistance, we will win this war quickly and with lower costs than anticipated.

    He says to himself, “Mei Changsu is the cost,” and then covers his mouth with his hand, the scales of his gauntlet pricking at his skin.

    ---

    Meng spends a cold winter caught in a war with two fronts--the Greater Yu army on one front, and a dying strategist on the other. It's basically ten thousand some-odd words of Meng-feels, Meng&Lin Shu bromance, and the slow breaking of a man's heart as he watches his best friend die.
