    Summary

    Dean should know by now to expect the worst when his brother calls him in the middle of the night with words like, we have a situation on his tongue. Still, he's more than a little surprised when Sam asks him to take in a young man recently rescued from a cult.
    Castiel - malnourished, abused, and afraid - might be more than Dean can handle, but someone's got to do it. Dean searches and finds a bright, loving man buried under those years of abuse, and he'll do just about anything to help Castiel feel whole again.

    Summary

    "It figures," Charon says, blankly, and the Wanderer turns to him, a puzzled look on his face.

    "What?"

    "You are the only decent person I have served, and now you are actively trying to get yourself killed."

    The Wanderer loads his shotgun and grins. He's no longer the frightened child that approached Charon at the Ninth Circle all that time ago; now, he's angry, vengeful, determined—far too confident for his own good.

    "Trust me. I'm not gonna die," he says. "I'm gonna burn the Enclave to the ground."

    Summary

    “What happened? After I died.”

    Two and a half years later Grantaire has finally made it home... but home is a word that's lost its meaning, and part of him still feels like he's on a planet millions of miles away. Sequel to the Martian AU that no one asked for.

    Summary

    The twenty-first century sees Steve alone and hurting. His STRIKE unit is really all he has. The worst thing about this time, other than not having Bucky, is that no one ever touches Steve. It isn't normal now like it was in the '40s. He misses it. Touch-hunger is a thing, especially for an Omega.

    He ends up doing a complicated dance with his STRIKE co-commander, Brock Rumlow, to get what he needs without scaring the Alpha off....or leading him on. Eventually they settle into a somewhat comfortable routine. And it just gets more comfortable as time goes on. He finally starts to move on, move forward with his life. Then the helicarriers come crashing down around him and he has to deal with the weight of being betrayed by everyone he cared about most.

    He...he had bonded with Brock. And Brock betrayed him. Brock held his first Alpha hostage. But how had their bond broken if Bucky was still alive? And why was Bucky flinching away from him, and curling into Brock's arms?

    Shit for summary, in my typical style.

    Summary

    It seems like everyone in the extended family that surrounds Phoenix Wright and Miles Edgeworth is getting their happy ending, or moving on to something new and bright - except for Klavier and Simon. They just seem to be stuck in limbo, with neither of them moving on from the events of the past eight years. That's not all they have in common, they both have an imprisoned elder sibling they visit on the same day of the week. Starting at awkward encounters during these visits, they gravitate towards each other during the year-long build up to the Wright-Edgeworth wedding. Maybe, with help from each other and the family, they'll feel more alive by the time the rings are exchanged.

    Summary

    Ten years ago, it's the middle of the afternoon.

    High above Alstor Slough, the sky is a brilliant edge-of-summer blue, so bright it hurts to look at. Clouds make tiny white smears against it, like whipped cream on top of one of Iggy's meticulously constructed cakes. And there, hanging in the vault of the heavens, is the sun.

    Prompto stares up at it, stunned into silence. It burns his eyes, but he squints and raises a hand above him and peeks through the fingers, not quite able to look away. He stays like that for a long time – so long his eyes water.

    He tells himself that's all it is.

    Summary

    Technically, Cassian could just take it. Leave. Even take the whole trunk and look for it later. This man wouldn't—couldn't—stop him. Couldn't report him without getting caught by the Empire, or if he managed to find a local government official without his wanted picture, explaining what he had that was so important to a rebel spy and why he’d had a moment of weakness strong enough to bring a stranger into his room. But being forceful caused problems, gave Cassian zero deniability. And—

    In another life, he would've picked this guy up at a bar because he wanted to. And Bodhi was a lot more attractive and a lot gentler than most people he did this with.

    Cassian Andor, he thought, you are really kriffed up.

    Well. Nothing to do about it now.

    ---

    In which Bodhi has Galen Erso's holo message, and Cassian is tasked with getting it. (I'm so sorry for the title pun.)

    Summary

    Dalish Warden Lyna Mahariel is the Hero of Fereldan, Champion of Redcliffe, Arlessa of Amaranthine, Redeemer of the Urn of Sacred Ashes, and broken-hearted former lover of King Alistair Therin of Fereldan. For the sake of love, she agreed to Morrigan's dark ritual. She perseveres and wins against yet more darkspawn and conspiracies, and stumbles into yet more dark secrets of the Dalish, the dwarves, and the Wardens. She will go through more, if she must, in the greatest quest of her life: to find a cure for the Calling, and discover just what a living hero must do to cope with their own legend.

    (Canonish because no one said it *didn't* happen, and I've made sure it fits into the lore, timeline, and more. I obsessively checked the wiki, codex entries, fiction, world books, throwaway dialogue, you name it.)

    Summary

    Castiel Novak, 34, rich, translator, lonely and oh yeah.. asexual. He has built up a life in solitude, working from home, enjoying the simple things in life.
    Something is missing in that life - a gap he doesn't know how to fill. The need to care, the need to provide.
    There's just nobody that needs him. However, when he goes on a mandatory work trip, he finds someone that does.

    Introducing Dean Winchester, 24, who suffers from involuntary age regression - making him a baby in an adult body whenever his brain feels like it, unable to take care of himself properly. Panic attacks, periods of regression and overall touch-starvation and loneliness had been his life for the past two years.

    Fate had a hand in putting Dean's motel room next to Castiel's that day.

    Summary

    A hopeful story with eventual canon divergence that explores the relationship between Solas and Sene Lavellen, as well as the deeper, more troubling aspects of Solas’s past and the fall of Arlathan. Desperately in love and striving for manhood, Solas finds himself redeemed early on. He has already changed his heart, and his struggle now lies in striking a balance between the difficulties of the past and the good fortune of a present in which he is surrounded by friends and comrades who love him in earnest. The son of a healer and an architect, Solas longs to build a life in this world, to carve out his place in it as a lover, a partner, a family member, and a friend. Achieving this, of course, is no easy task.

    This is, at its core, a character-driven hero's journey for both Solas and Sene. As Solas embarks on his quest, Sene must find herself as well. It is an acknowledgment that fully-formed relationships, no matter how you define them, are never simple and must be continuously earned, especially when the stakes are high and the landscape is war.

    Summary

    In the day, she smiles at him, plays her part as the prodigal sister finally having seen the light and found her brother and her blood. Only in the night can she allow herself to hate him, to hate what he has done to her and what he has turned her into. So she hates him wrapped up in his arms and safe in his hold, and hates herself for never slipping from his arms and leaving. Every night, she knows, she could.
