    Summary

    Jasper Jordan lives with his mother, father, and cat in a detached house in the cool suburbs of a quiet American town. His father teaches at the town’s college, and his mother works a part-time job in the library. There is space between the houses, but not quite as much as Jasper’s dad would’ve liked. His wife loves it though, says it’s cozy, so he settles eventually; over the years, he will grow to love it.

    Jasper has always been an excitable kid. So when it is announced that they are going to have new neighbors (Miss Nancy of number 23, left to their house, had passed away that fall; it was summer now), it is no surprise that their son, seven years old, ends up running laps around the house in excitement, letting out a few battle cries full of energy. When he is done running around, he steps inside, breathing heavily, but beaming ever so bright. He asks if they know who their neighbors are and when they are moving in. His parents tell him that they do not know the answer to his questions, and smile when he sighs. Jasper Jordan goes to sleep that night, wondering if he will make a new friend.

    (OR: modern day au where Jasper and Monty meet when they are seven and Monty moves into town)

    Summary

    Siegbert has never had any real interests besides his studies, and, perhaps, upholding his family name. He had no hobbies, no real social life, and he certainly didn't have any romantic relationships to speak of. That is, until one day he's asked to pick up his cousin, Forrest, from his dance lessons.

    Summary

    After a ten year long Winter, Sandor Clegane emerges from the Quiet Isle. Against his better judgement, he finds himself in Winterfell to help with the rebuild. There he will once again meet Sansa Stark, a woman grown and drastically changed from the girl he had once known in King's Landing.

    Sandor's POV takes place in the present, while Sansa's story will be told piece by piece through flashbacks.

    This fic deals very much with past hurts, emotional scars, crippling guilt, and eventually healing and self-forgiveness. It will take some time for our girl to get there, but I am looking forward to the challenge of writing this. I hope some of you will be interested enough to trudge along with me!

    Summary

    "It happens in a way that keeps you from really realizing just how detrimental your actions are.

    At one point you are sitting in your room, overwhelmed and helpless, crying to yourself about how you just can’t do it anymore, can’t function, can’t go on without something having to give.

    Then you find yourself driving, driving aimlessly, driving recklessly. Your mother texts you, worried and scared. She doesn’t know where you’ve gone. She doesn’t know what started this."

    Summary

    You walk into a skeleton one frozen winter day and surprise him by apologizing. You don't think anything of it - You're Canadian, after all! - but to him and his friends, it means the world to them.

    I wanted some more romance and a more realistic, super slow build up than a lot of the SansxReader fics I read on this site, so I decided to write something of my own :) It starts with some background SansxToriel, then it moves to a platonic friendship with the skeletons and their friends. I also wanted a much more assertive reader - There be no damsels here, whether overprotective Sans likes it or not.

    A lot of the content in this is based on real events in my life, just rearranged to fit the story I want to tell. Many names have been changed to protect the innocent.

    Summary

    (Post-Civil War. There will possibly be spoilers for allof the MCU movies released before May of 2016.)

    When Bucky went into cryo-freeze in Wakanda, he thought he was giving up everything--his chance at life, love, and the possibility of redeeming himself for the crimes he committed under HYDRA's control. So when he wakes up in 2017 in a vault under a secret military base in Nevada, he has a LOT of questions. Unfortunately, no one seems to know the answers, and the harder he searches for them, the more questions he uncovers.

    Meanwhile, intent on finding and capturing Captain America and the Secret Avengers, Everett Ross hires the world's most talented personality assassin: Dick Spanker, an ex-comics writer with a talent for coming up with absurd, horrifying smear campaigns.

    (I started writing this right after Civil War came out, but due to recent events, I've retconned the story to include my new least favorite person, Dick Spanker. Also, this is taking a lot of brainpower to write, since I haven't had a lot of experience writing some of the characters involved and I really want to do them all justice. Which means updates will be slow for a while.)

    Summary

    "Xie [...] had invented an entire pleasure-industry by combining superior visual aesthetics with impeccable personal attention. Drasha salons were by that time a feature of any even half-decent house of repose in every pleasure district in the British Isles, but once upon a time, when Xie debuted, there had been only one, and Xie had named it: the Icehouse."

    *
    Deep-cover Unity operative, the Face, finds himself drawn into the orbit of the otherworldly Xie, a world-famous "drasha" (drag+geisha) artist in a London house of repose. As a resistance plot unfolds, the secrets each of them keeps will draw them together even as they threaten to drive them apart.

    Summary

    “You can’t send me with him,” you hissed to Locus.
    “And why is that?” he asked. You could imagine a single, unimpressed raised eyebrow under his helmet.
    “I broke his wrist,” you said flatly. “And I’m pretty sure he’ll try to kill me.”
    “Then break his other arm,” Locus replied dryly. “Any injuries he has are due to his own incompetence.”
    You blinked. That hadn’t been the response you were expecting.
    “Besides,” Locus continued, as if he hadn’t suggested that you maim his partner, “we need you to unlock your suit for the information. I would expect that Felix’s love for money would override any immediate urge to incapacitate you.”
    "I'm right here, assholes," Felix growled.

    In a maybe-not-so-unfortunate turn of events, you are thrown into the partnership of the deadly mercenary duo Felix and Locus.
