    Summary

    “How can you justify placing a price tag on another human being?”
    “Simple. Once you start playing God, anything can become pawns on a board. Everything is on the market for the right amount. All that’s left to do is find those with ambitions and bottomless bank accounts.”

    Life’s all love and liquor, or so it seems to be. Taehyung is a talented tattoo artist by day and a charismatic bartender by night. Stretched thin between jobs, it helps that the bouncer at the club he works at is also his boyfriend. But when Taehyung suddenly disappears off the face of the earth, the two of them are thrown into a clandestine world of silenced voices and corrupt power.

    Summary

    Lex and Gwen never expected that a night shift at the JFK 4th terminal would change their lives forever when Flight 753 from Berlin imported the outbreak.

    Neither were prepared to face what was going to happen, not even Lex the survivalist. They were going to need all the help they could get to fight the plague.

    And that was just what the Sun Hunters were looking for.

    The Strain, from the perspective of original characters.

    Rated M for graphic violence. Not suitable for the faint of heart, nor seekers of erotic content.

    Summary

    It was never meant to go this far. It shouldn't have lasted this long. She knew she should stop, that their relationship should be purely professional, but there was something so addicting about breaking the rules with him that she couldn't.

    But soon, he'll break her. She's always been strong-willed and stubborn. With him, there's something different in the air.

    God, what has she gotten herself into this time?

    ** Warning; this fanfiction aims to be highly realistic regarding character traits. It will not cut corners, and it will show you the dark side of Gorillaz. Sometimes, in your chest, when you meet a bad guy yet he does something so sweet and you can't bring yourself to walk away, you just can't. You will watch a human being break. It will not happen right away. But when she does break, it will get ugly. Perhaps, if you're an empath like I am, you will feel her suffering and pain. I will try to be as realistic and as in character as possible with this. However, if you can't handle pain, I don't suggest reading this.**

    Summary

    Life in Heleus City proves hazardous to yet another person’s health and it falls to Lt. Scott Ryder to solve the case. But not without getting re-tangled up with his estranged siblings, landing in the number one spot on the shit-list of every ambitious thug in the city, and butting heads with his unfairly irresistible ex, i.e. The One Who Got Away, with depressing frequency. Between all that and his captain riding his ass about all the unused PTO he’s accruing—not to mention that it’s been raining so hard for so long, anyone with any common sense has migrated south or started building an ark—Lt. Ryder deserves Olympic gold just for keeping his head above water.

    Summary

    Ramsay Snow starred regularly in Sansa’s dreams.

    He was her curse, the monster who had shaped her, the darkness that had left his mark on her. She felt powerless in her nightmares, defenseless, wishing she could feed him to his dogs again, wishing naively for some golden knight to strike him down.

    But she wasn't a child anymore, and golden knights were rotten inside. She knew that now. So instead she daydreamed about the way Jon had broken Ramsay's face, about the blood and snow, about the sound of bones crunching.

    “Teach me,” she told Jon. “Teach me how to fight.”

    Summary

    Biologically, Stiles is weak. When he presented as an omega, he knew that to be the truth but that never stopped him from running his mouth as a defense mechanism. However, it could only save him so many times before he ended up pissing off the wrong person. After he's attacked in the parking lot outside of school, Stiles realizes he can no longer protect himself with just pure wit and sarcasm. When the attack lands him in the hospital, his dad forces him to pick between two options, report the alphas who attacked him or join a kickboxing gym run by omega rights activist and alpha, Derek Hale, a man Stiles has been in love with for many years.
