    Summary

    As many of you who are following the official story know, I sometimes go a little overboard in my attempt to recreate the feel of a new season of a TV show. At this point, I figured why not go all out?

    One of my favorite things about anime is the extra materials, the fanart, the official art, character songs and Omakes, published short stories and such. That's why I decided to take a crack at it myself. This, and my Tumblr (posted inside) will be home to all the fun extras you could imagine!

    Featuring: Concept art, (in process of being) recorded character songs, polls, deleted scenes, playlists, contests, pleads for help because I am horrible at languages but half my characters are multilingual, and more!

    Summary

    "Joker was a Metaverse manifestation of what Akira longed to be: confident, competent, and courageous. He certainly felt none of the above as his body racked with muffled sobs in the dim, artificial glow of Leblanc’s patron bathroom."

    Akira's resilient, meticulous thinking had beared his weight for years. But every machine eventually rusts and he feels the acute oxidation seep through with the memories of The Interrogation. Dealing with his own shit had never been Akira's strong suit, but he must choose between a passive Enough or an affirmation of Willing if he wants to survive this. He has plenty of motivation between a found family, a sense of duty, and flowering affections.

    Right?

    Summary

    Jeongguk and Jimin's families have been rivals for decades, immersed into a life of extreme fortune and success. They've been groomed, since birth, to feel nothing but resentment and hatred for each other. Despite knowing that they're not allowed to interact, that they're meant to be competitors and nothing more - they can't help coming back to each other. Through the years, since teenagers, they can't help the intense attraction they feel towards each other.

    Summary

    I made a timeline for this so that's probably why I'm posting this even though it's a bit disjointed. Basically there's this dude who's going to kill loads of people in a theatre but like really vaguely. Imagine a Criminal Minds episode but from the murderer's point of view. And also I love Dante's Divine Comedy.

    Summary

    He squeezes her reassuringly before going on. “You’re with me, and he owes me a favor. Besides that, they know we are coming, and Michelle would sooner leave him staked to the ground at dawn than allow a single hair on our head to come to harm. We are as safe as we can be, Tina.”

    Summary

    The holotape stopped, an abrupt click into silence, and he played it again, and again, and again, as he had for the longest time... Such a long time... He needed to hear her voice. Just one last time, he told himself, as the next time became the last, and the time after that, too.
    But he had to keep moving forward. And he did keep moving forward. Nora was gone - but Shaun... Shaun was still out there, and Nicholas would travel the entire wasteland if it meant finding him.
    He would do this, when all he wanted to do was leave the world behind him.

    Summary

    It’s a weird realisation when the thought comes to you that life continues outside of the story. That after your own personal fairytale finishes, your life continues. After the love story, after the wedding bells, it keeps going. Beyond your wedding night, beyond the kids, beyond the divorce. It never stops. Not until death do us part– if your life is the romance novel. Viktor’s life is not a romance novel. It’s not the love cliche he thought it once was.

    Summary

    When people speak of forbidden love it always sounds so romantic. Something that quite a few young people enjoy daydreaming about.
    Two people against the world with the odds stacked against them, holding on to hope for a happy ending but, even if they die at least they will die together knowing that they held on to their love for one another until the end.
    I wonder, would they still day dream about it if they knew the truth?

    Speaking of the truth you should know since now what type of story you are about to be told so allow me to inform you. This story -my story- is a cautionary tale, a reminder if you will, that light and dark can not -will not- mix no matter how hard they may try. This story is not for the faint of heart and only has a "happy" ending from a certain point of view.
    This is my story -our story- and with everything I've just told you I only have one question to ask of you.

    Are you sure you would care to listen to this tale?

    Summary

    to forgive, divine.

    It’s a matter of perspective.

    At least that’s what he tells himself so he can sleep at night. His sleep isn’t sound, instead riddled with nightmares and roaming hands. Hot whiskey eyes and bony fingers make themselves at home in his mind and he can’t escape. There’s a bomb, ticking away, set to explode – or perhaps implode? – in less than a month and yet he can’t help himself from wanting to play with the wires.

    Summary

    “Hello Will.” The voice that is the narrator of his dreams, the man that is the keeper to his mind, the guardian of all his secrets opening the door and welcoming him inside to warm himself at his hearth. It is almost too much for Will to believe, he feels like a pagan worshipper meeting with his god in human form, out of his depth awaiting the trick that turns the juice from the pomegranate into blood dripping down his chin, consciousness taken from him as easily as fruit plucked from a tree.

    He walks in regardless of the swirl of thoughts in his brain, a quagmire of confusions that threatens to pull him down into its heavy, dark depths. Hannibal is the light that he can see if he tilts his head up just before drowning, the light that shines in his eyes and beckons him to kick his legs and fight. So he sits as he always does and takes the glass of thick, velvety red wine attempting not to taste pomegranates as he brings the liquid to his lips and swallows.
