    Summary

    In 1997, Anna and Castiel Novak moved to Sioux Falls for a fresh start. They were a little broke and a little desperate, but they were determined to make it work. For better or worse, they moved in next door to a scrapyard called “Singer Salvage” where Bobby Singer, a mostly-absent John Winchester, and his two sons Sam and Dean lived. Castiel and Dean became unlikely friends who decided when they were nine years old that they would take on the world together. And even though life wasn’t perfect, the bonds these neighboring families formed challenged small-town conventions and proved that family doesn’t end with blood.

    Summary

    Sometimes the hardest battle isn’t enough to change a heart, sometimes all the war and blood in the world isn’t enough to shift a single destiny.
    Sometimes a simple touch is enough to break down the strongest of barriers, sometimes a single word is enough to make the world quake.
    Sometimes the most reaching of changes comes in the form of a little boy sad enough, strong enough, and kind enough to make friends with a monster.
    Sometimes one change makes waves.

     

    Naruto has been hearing the rumbling growl in the back of his head for as long as he can remember. He’s seven when he tries to talk to it for the first time. He’s the dead last, the failure at everything, so he doesn’t actually expect to succeed.
    And when he’s suddenly standing, knee deep in murky water and face to face with a demon, he has no idea what to expect.
    As it turns out, the world could use something unexpected. 

    In which Naruto discovers the real meaning of the word monster, Sasuke discovers power and strength and learns the difference between them, and Sakura discovers that being herself is not as selfish as she thought.
    Where Kakashi learns to fight again for what he loves, and Obito never stopped.

    Summary

    A relative peace has settled over the sister cities of Gotham and Blüdhaven, as well as their respective vigilantes. Jason has returned a changed man and made amends with his... family, though he remains plagued by the insidious rage of the Lazarus Pit. Dick is his only confidant in that regard, and the two quickly grow close in spite of their lurid history. And everything seems to actually be okay for a while—Jason finds a tentative happiness in being a hero, in allowing himself to open up to people again. It's too bad he loses everything in the span of a singular, horrifying moment, following a chance encounter with an unknown villain that ends with him being propelled through space and time into a world so very alien to his own.

    Meanwhile, Dick finds himself buckling under the weight of his lies, his losses, and a future without Jason. Conventional morality is abandoned as he embarks on a violent crusade for revenge, accompanied by an unlikely slew of allies. He will find Jason, or he will die trying.

    Summary

    Spider Lily Baytown is a mouthful, and close to two hours out of the nearest big city. It’s quiet, the sidewalks are a sandy color, the cracks uneven, it’s humid and the sun bakes the clay soil in the summer, and during the off-seasons, the town clears out to just the residents, leaving it empty with an echo of waves down Main Street.

    He’s the last person she told.
    “You’re leaving us?”
    He didn’t take it well.
    “Look, I just want to do my part f-”
    “You’re abandoning your friends!”
    She can’t understand why he’s acting like this.

    Summary

    We talk about women, we talk about work. We throw around each others’ lies like batting practice, scaring everyone around us into ducking the ball—even though the laughter comes a beat later. I lift things from people incessantly; he takes them back with a shove. I brag about my grandfather; he groans about the times. We don’t discuss his daughter, and I don’t talk about my father. Sometimes we chat about Jigen and my crew. I try to get him some friends.

    It’s Christmas time at Interpol, and I've gotten myself arrested. No big deal.

    Well, except for the whole, "someone's trying to kill me" thing. There is that, I guess. But I never said I couldn't handle it.

    OR:
    Lupin, Zenigata, and a skeleton crew of cops are snowed in at the ER, and it's bringing back a lot of bad memories for everyone. Thanks to the failed heist that nearly got Lupin killed and a redhead from Zenigata's past, it's also turning into a game of Clue—except, the murder hasn't quite happened yet. Zenigata might be able to clear Lupin of a terrorist bombing and get them out alive, but only if the mystery of the thief's dramatic flashbacks (and his crime) can be solved in time. Unfortunately, Lupin isn't making it easy....

    Summary

    At 18, Eugene’s life changed forever when he decided to follow family tradition and walked into the Marine’s recruiting office downtown instead of applying for colleges like his mother desperately wished. When he returned to Mobile at 22, everyone expected him to follow one of his old ambitions and get a degree or a job but Eugene just couldn’t do that, couldn’t do much of anything, certainly he couldn’t look his mother in the eyes and tell her that the son she knew had died somewhere in the middle of the desert on the other side of the world. By the time he turned 24, Eugene had had enough of everyone’s poking and prodding so he loaded up his car, headed north, and never looked back. With the help of a new city, an old friend, and a struggling flower shop, Eugene was finally able to start making progress with his life but whatever peace Eugene managed to find in the city and in his shop was shattered with the arrival of his new neighbors and at 27 Eugene realized that his life was about to change forever once again. He just hoped that this time it would be for the better.

    Summary

    People say that life flashes before your eyes right before you die. In between those split seconds of life and death, caught in a vortex of memories as they fly by, fragments of images, scents, thoughts all around while you desperately try to grasp them and they flow through your fingers, ephemeral bits and pieces of yourself, dying away and burning out like candles in the wind. They say that you stop breathing under the onslaught of memories, choked with regrets as you watch it all happen, as all your choices lead you to this very moment, creating an endless spiral of memories until death mercifully claims you and you sink into its arms, blissfully free of the chains of memories around your heart and inside your head.

    Yuri Plisetsky knows that this is a lie.

    "Shhh," Cathy says. "It's past one in the morning, and we'll answer Esme's questions when she's old enough to ask them. Right now I'm tired and I'm getting cold, and I believe I asked you to take me to bed."

    Caro leans into Cathy's finger and whispers, "Make me."

    Cathy smiles.

    Summary

    Dean and Castiel know everything about each other—until they don’t. Eight months in, and they’re still trying to figure it out, and Dean never spent enough time in a relationship to figure out how to get past a fight.

    Maybe the most important part is that they’re willing to try.
