    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 lives is 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

    In the year 2453, Ignis Scientia has based his history thesis around the possibility that there was a strong reaction from the Scientific Community undermined by political moves in his era of study. How does he plan to do this? By applying for the prestigious and highly regulated privilege of traveling back in time.

    While posing as a college student during the upheaval of the academic community following the 2016 election, Ignis met Prompto, a twenty year old man from Kansas. He was Ignis’ roommate, visiting DC on his own exchange program. Prompto – a self-proclaimed Otaku – spoke enough Japanese that Ignis’ possession of maybe half a dozen words in English was not a problem. As their lives played out over the course of the following four months in their small shared dorm room, Ignis began to realize the importance of apologies, regret, the impact of his own actions, and why it’s sometimes better to do something when you know it will make you feel worse in the long run. Mostly, he learned what it was like to fall in love with someone you really shouldn’t.

    Summary

    It was charming. Even more importantly, the room fell within the price-range her parents had deemed acceptable. Besides, she was tired. She’d viewed (and discarded) a lot of ads over the past two weeks. From being too expensive to being too far from campus, she had yet to lock something down. The current ad was notated with ‘New!’, having just gone up the night before and, though suspicious of its newness, she didn't mind the coincidence of it.

    Alternate universe, set in modern-day Ithaca, New York. Crysania, a newly-accepted graduate student of Cornell University, rents a room from Raistlin Majere. (No warnings apply; future chapters will be notated accordingly.)

    "I want to hold you close
    Skin pressed against me tight
    Lie still, and close your eyes girl
    So lovely, it feels so right
    I want to hold you close
    Soft breasts, beating heart
    As I whisper in your ear
    I want to fucking tear you apart"

    Summary

    **WORK CURRENTLY IN PROGRESS**
    Ian has awoken with mild amnesia after having presumably fallen off the deep end. Though with as deep as he was, he is shaken to discover that he could fall even further down. He's now stuck battling his own mind in his attempt to piece together his memories of what had happened, of what he did. He finds himself committed to a rather long mandatory stay in the psych ward, which has potential to be extended even further. Upon arrival he's met by his new roommate, a man who he finds oddly intriguing yet incredibly intimidating, a mysterious, new stranger. The two quickly learn to coexist, yet their delicate balance becomes repeatedly tested during their stay in a struggling mental health facilty surrounded by other dysfunctional patients and an alarming underworld cycling within the center's walls. When Ian finally does decide to take the help offered to him, will he be able to convince his new companion to take the help too? And when they learn more about each other and reveal their painful, hidden secrets, will they still be able to accept one another? Or will it be too hard to swallow?

    Summary

    In the days following Operation Pitfall, Newton and Hermann must come to terms with the dubious peace that grasps the world. Memories, emotions, and monsters threaten their trust, challenging the scientists to find a peace within themselves following their shared drift event.

    TW: In regards to tags, if you are on the fence, I want to clarify that there are no graphic depictions of self harm, and no graphic depictions of abuse. In dialogue and narrative they are alluded to, and talked about, but descriptive violence is a minimum, relegated to consequential injury due to mostly stupidity. Discretion is honored, a free choice, and respected!

    Summary

    It’s a strange thing to look at himself in the mirror and not really recognise the person he sees there.

    It’s weird seeing his body so unblemished. It’s weird seeing himself looking so wholesome. He still feels anything but, but he guesses that this is part of the recovery. This is one of the steps in the right direction.

    And now that he looks better, he just has to find a way to feel better.
