    Summary

    Alexandria Hypatia treads unfamiliar territory - the people she once knew and worked so closely with now shy away from her, as if she were a stranger, and the black market sells a copycat recipe of her elixir for an outrageous price. Desperate to make amends for her absence, she reaches out to the community and, by chance, stumbles on the heart of the criminal operation that has been taking advantage of those she once toiled to care for.

    As she goes to confront them, she finds a surprising kinship with one of their alchemists. They show understanding for her recurring nightmares, and the two steadily form a bond over shared experiences. But when the realities of their respective pasts and the criminal underworld bleed forth into the present, Hypatia learns that some injuries don't quite heal, passing with time, and must confront the monster born of neglect if she is to ever move forward.

    Summary

    She's a mess, tangled with her confidence.
    She thinks she hasn't sinned.
    Well, she's unstoppable,
    Her walls are impassible.

    Oh, she thinks she's better off looking alone.
    'Cause the boys that chase her hips can just go find their way home.
    And at the end of the day she thinks to herself,
    "My body is a product being sold on a shelf."

    "Tell me I can change,
    Tell me I can change."

    Summary

    Sans and Papyrus have been missing for months now, and still, no sign of them can be found. Though their friends have faith that they'll find them, such faith is beginning to wane.

    Wingdings and Aster, still trying to figure out their pasts, had just begun settling in when, once again, their worlds are flipped on a head, and they end up in a different reality known only as "The Void." As the traverse the dangerous landscape, they uncover clues and answers that tell of what happened to them, how everyone forgot them--and what happened to the skeleton brothers.

    But such things don't come easily, as the Void is full of both old and new acquaintances, lost in limbo, with one goal on their minds: to keep the twins from escaping.

    Summary

    They tell him he won’t fly again - not for the New Republic military anyway - while he’s still in the hospital. The news splashes over his skin like a scald, refusing to sink deeper but leaving a burn that will remain tender for years.

    The nurses suggest it first, mixed with ‘too much damage’ and ‘potential for prosthetics’, maybe you could- but his attention always slides away before they can really finish. It’s like he knows the refrain, but he doesn’t like the song.

    An emergency ejection during a training exercise ends Poe Dameron's flying career before it starts, at least for the New Republic. General Organa steps in to ask him to take a special assignment elsewhere, and Poe accepts, seeing no other value to his life.

    Summary

    This is Inquisition rewritten from Dorian's POV, twisting Bioware's "own canon" (canon compliant in outcomes and decisions, but not necessarily in their delivery). The Inquisitor is Female Lavellan romancing Solas, but this relationship develops in the background, influencing Dorian's friendship with the Inquisitor. Among other things, I'd like to include a lore-building arc including Dagna and M!Trevelyan OC that will also, hopefully, touch the topics of Cole's nature and Solas's revelations.

    Peridot knows she's hiding something deep from Steven, but she doesn't want to anymore. She knows he has to know- or at least someone has to know about the pain and trauma she'd been hiding behind her bright green visor.

    ~POV switches back and forth between Steven and Peridot with every new chapter~
    ~Takes place after Lars's Head~
    ~Trigger Warnings: Abuse, Rape, Past Abuse, Past Rape, Graphic Depictions of Violence, Major Character Death~
    ~Named after the beautiful song 'Without the Lights' by Elliot Moss: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SmnXGvXYpKg~

    Summary

    "Stiles ran through the woods dodging branches that seemed to leap out of the blackness of the night and leaping over fallen logs that appeared determined to trip her. Just a bit further-almost there. Crashing sounds from behind her-right on her tail. If she were to look behind her, she would undoubtedly see the red-black eyes of a dark witch. The same witch that slaughtered her pack one by one—saving Stiles for last."

    Stiles is the last surviving member of the Hale Pack and is fighting to destroy the witch who decimated her pack. Stiles succeeds but dies in the process. Except she wakes up in the Hale House before Kate and the Hale House Fire takes place. She doesn't know how she got from dying in her present to being ten years in the past but she is determined to save her pack and the Hales--even if it kills her...again.
