    Summary

    Rather than submitting to the Inquisition when his plan to alter time fails, Gereon Alexius casts a spell to escape with Felix. Fuelled by the unstable Veil and the magister's pained desperation, the spell blows out of proportion and transports the father and son to a completely different realm, which seems to be experiencing quite a Dragon Age of its own.

    Summary

    Time makes you bolder / Even children get older / And I'm getting older, too

    As a knight of the Macedon Guard, Palla is sworn by duty to serve the current Arl of Hyram Valley, Michaelis Drakon. His younger sister Minerva, recently appointed Guard-Captain, however, resents him for reasons unknown to Palla-- though she'll confront them head-on when she becomes Captain Minerva's trusted lieutenant. Meanwhile, Palla's younger sisters, Catria and Est, have their own problems-- Catria struggles under the persistent workload of having to care for Est and keep the house while Palla works to keep the three sisters afloat, and a chance meeting with Clair, nobility from Freygar, makes her feel truly young and independent. Through all of this, Est feels like a burden to her sisters, as she's too young to work and helping Catria only goes so far. She doesn't mean to cause trouble, but if she's gone for a time to help her friend Genny track down her absent mother, nobody will notice, right?

    As the time passes and tensions in Macedon conflict with Palla's ability to be there for her sisters, relations between them grow strained. What happens when it all comes to a head, and where will that leave them?

    Summary

    “Just because a situation may seem bad now, it doesn’t mean you cannot change it for the better.” A slight twinkle in Professor Heine’s eyes. The sort of look that told you that everything was going to be okay. “Your Highnesses, while bearing presents on one’s birth has become a tradition, do not forget that the most cherished gift is the company of others. Not long from now, all four of you will be going on separate paths. Possibly leaving the kingdom, depending on what the future has in mind. Until we arrive to that crossroad, spending time together as a family is the greatest treasure that anyone could ever ask for.”

    Summary

    The Past casts long shadows in the hearts of Dwarrow, Men, and Elves.
    With a little understanding, many things might be different in the lives of the Children of Mahal.
    A story of courage, love, and a touch of darkness.
    A "What if?"-story that found its nascent beginning in the question "What if Celebrimbor had a child with Narví?" and wouldn't let me go.
    This story focuses on the events of the Hobbit, with a multitude of side-stories forming the rest of the series.

     

    For Azi, who always loved a good story and enjoyed the previews enough for me to post it here. I hope you like it, ye crazy Scotsman!

    With so many skeletons in the closet, sometimes it's easier for the children of House Il'harren to invoke other ghosts. They won't share power and they can't share trust but sharing stories surely can't hurt.

    Summary

    This can be read as a standalone piece, but it was written with the intention of including it as a Side Story in my "Misadventures" Series as "Real Person Fiction" written by one of Harry's classmates (with at least some of the content being based on true events). I had Flash in mind when I wrote it, but it could potentially be written by someone else. It utilizes a 2nd person POV and intentionally attempts to obscure some hints about the identity of the writer and contains details that are warped by the narrator's personal bias and incomplete/compromised memories. I am personally imagining the content being written as part of a journalling exercise that's intended to be therapeautic. Mostly just an excuse for me to experiment with another writing style.

    Summary

    The storyteller pauses and stares mournfully into the flickering hearth. “I miss him, boy. He was the best Nemesis a devil like me could ask for.” The boy attempts to make himself the picture of understanding, in case his input is required. At the same time, he eases out from under the Pirate’s arm and slides backwards, until caught in place by a loud creak. The Pirate’s gaze remains fastened on a distant, sparkling past, and he takes a breath to continue.

    “My Nemesis was the bravest, most noble Commander that ever put a sextant to the horizon!"

    (Notes: Barrett's Privateers is heavily referenced, but the characters are from Hark! A Vagrant.)

    Summary

    “I won't start with long ago because it makes the tale seem ancient and it's not. Nor in a distant land because it happened right here.” Maurice tapped a finger on the arm of his throne. “So why don't we use the most classic line of all?”

    Once Upon A Time...

    Summary

    He found that those fluffy and sweet fan fictions were starting not to be enough anymore. His feelings for Otabek weren’t of the innocent type, and while he was already used to fantasize about them, he’d gotten so used to actually reading that one day he just slipped.
    He found a pretty vanilla one, and promised himself that it would be enough. It was a one time thing, it had to be.
    It wasn’t.

    Summary

    «— Итак, чем займёмся? — Клинт вытаскивает себе стул рядом с Сэмом, и Сэм закатывает глаза.

    — Тем, чем мы занимаемся каждую субботу, Бартон, будем Наблюдать За Бакеном, — отвечает Сэм, указывая ему за спину.

    Стив испускает долгий вздох.

    — Опять? Всё ещё Бакен? — Клинт приподнимает бровь, а затем вытягивает шею, чтобы увидеть, чем сегодня занят объект привязанности Стива. Тот, как обычно, сидит за ноутбуком и яростно печатает, время от времени останавливаясь, чтобы пролистать книгу, лежащую рядом с ним. Он хмурится, затем кивает, а потом снова начинает печатать.

    — Всегда Бакен, — говорит Райли, наклоняясь к Сэму. — Бедный Стив сражён».

    Это история, в которой есть поистине ужасная кофейня, писатель, который не может ничего написать, а также Шкив и Бакен.

    Summary

    If you want to make it big, you’ve got to start off small. This is something that Jimin acknowledges, for he just carries on singing features for underground rappers in the hopes of breaking into the mainstream scene even when the lyrics mean nothing to him.

    If you want to make it in the scene, you’ve got to fake it in the scene. This is something that Yoongi understands intimately. But he’s never been one to be a poser, and there’s only far stuntin’ can get you before you burn out like the end of a cigarette.

    Yoongi finally wants to move on from his bad past and take the gamble so that he can drop his first mixtape as ‘D-boy’, and he can’t think of anyone more perfect to feature on it than rising talent: Park Jimin.

    Jimin really wants to break free from nights spent singing at hip hop clubs for a pittance and finally have his name on an official track in the music charts, but he’s going to need some help navigating the brutal world of music contracts and the paparazzi; and being involved in a scandal the likes of which the industry has never seen before.

    Summary

    What he sees, while looking at Lavellan, is nights of forgotten stories and stolen moments- sweet curves pressed lovingly against the hard lines of his own. A time before he was known as the traitor, a time when he was simply Fen'Harel- the wolf who rebelled. His chest tightens each and every time he stares into the reflection which Lavellan lived. So how could he deny Varric a story that should have remained within the memories of the fade when she is staring him down with expecting jade eyes?
