  1. Summary

    There are many characters with stories to tell, stories that don't quite make it to the page or the screen. Characters, like living people, suffer, and their suffering involves more than just the physical. Here you will find an extensive project of mine: to examine characters across my favorite fandoms in the context of canon, but through the lens of my lived experience of several mental illnesses.
    The content may be disturbing, so please take care of yourself and don't read any of my works that you predict might cause you distress; I will tag with the appropriate trigger warnings, but if you have the chance and the energy, please read these character studies. I am hoping these stories will show all the ways mental illness affects or doesn't affect the lives of those who live with it.

    Summary

    A thing that started off as a thought experiment, and a distraction from researching sailing boats. (Researching sailing boats is way less complicated than transcribing UN treaties, which might teach me to actually do my damn work).

    An exploration of what the Sokovia Accords might have actually contained, the work that would have gone into them, and the people they affected.

    Summary

    Tony just can't understand how people can be so cruel. How can they look at Peter and not see what he sees?

    Or: the one where Tony finds out Peter is being bullied and he is not happy.

    Summary

    Death by poster. Yuuri had already avoided that humiliating fate once in his life, moving faster than a bullet train to rip all his Viktor posters down before the living legend himself had bounded into his room in Hasetsu. But it seemed like Yuuri would not be able to avoid that fate twice, not with the heartfelt way that Nikolai Plisetsky stared at him now.

    “For Yuratchka,” he said in halting English. “For birthday. Please.”

    *

    Or the story of how Death comes for Yuuri on little leopard feet after he signs a poster of himself for Yuri for his birthday.

    Summary

    Yuuri is asked by the JSF to attend the NHK Trophy even though he's not competing so they can get some promotional shots and so forth done with him.

    Yuuri says yes partly because his sister and Minako have promised to visit him with Vicchan and partly because Victor is competing and he wants to see him skate.

    It's not like he's going to actually MEET his idol right? Right?
