    Summary

    Imagine a world where people born with the ability to manipulate magic are forced to choose between being second-class citizens and working for the government in what amounts to modern slavery.

    Tony Stark, playboy billionaire genius, is the CEO of the world's number one manufacturer of Anti-Psionic technology, like his father before him, and his grandfather before that.

    Loki Olson, a warlock raised by the staunchest supporter of anti-magic regulation, dreams of a better future where he no longer is a fugitive hunted by the government, and works to make it happen.

    Then their paths collide.

    This is a story of change, personal growth, friendship, love, and, most important of all, hope.

    This is the story of a revolution.

    Summary

    The higher-ups call it Operation Watchtower, but to Bucky Barnes and the rest of the men on the ground, it's Operation Pestilence. Bucky doesn't mind that much. He was the one stupid enough to enlist, after all, alongside a bunch of other guys stupid enough to enlist. It's their own damn fault they're sitting in muddy holes in the ground getting malaria and eating whatever they can steal from the dwindling Japanese food caches.

    Sometimes Bucky crunches his way through a tin of fish heads and gazes out at the sea, wondering if the US Army's forgotten them there on Guadalcanal, wondering if there's a US Army or a Navy even left to remember them or if the Japanese have won and nobody's bothered to let the GIs know. Then he decides fuck it and chucks his tin of fish heads at Foghorn because he's in the mood to wrestle and Foghorn's always up for a fight. They both come out of it laughing and a little bloody and feeling better because, hell, Bucky figured out pretty quick that living or dying is largely just a matter of chance, so why worry?

    Summary

    All across the country, strange things are starting to happen - although "strange" is relative for Gerard Way, whose day job is hunting monsters alongside his changeling brother, Mikey. But now something is coming, something too big for even the Ways to handle. Hunters and monsters alike are running scared, so Gerard and Mikey pack up their secrets and their nightmares (and their extensive collection of firearms) and set out in pursuit of information. Their quest for answers will take them and their old Trans Am all the way from the small towns of New York State to the swamps of Louisiana, crossing paths with the burnt-out ruins of the legendary crew Leathermouth and America's last prophet. It's a dirty, dangerous job, but someone has to do it. And before long, the Ways find themselves thrown together with vengeful rival hunters, highly-strung psychics, voodoo queens, chaos magicians and homicidal barmaids - as they prepare to face an ancient evil.

    Summary

    Sebastian Moran is a rebel without a cause (literally - pro patria mori is a pile of shite). Jim Moriarty is an evil genius in need of a right hand (not literally - he’s already got one of those in the freezer). It's a relationship meant to be.

    AKA The Life And Times of Sebastian Moran, Bastard Extraordinaire. Spanning seven years and three continents, containing 496 uses of the word "fuck", multiple murders, several criminal acts, a couple of explosions, a large amount of violence and sex (often combined), an utter disregard of rules and morals, and somewhere in the middle of this something that almost looks like a happy and loving relationship.

    “This is your shot, dude. You want in?”

    Gansey blinked groggily. “In what?”

    Ronan couldn’t keep from smiling. “The orgy, dumbass. Menage a cinq. Whatever the fuck you call five dipshits who are too codependent to functionally date anybody else.”

    Summary

    "It's hard not to love Rin," is what he says instead, because that's what brought them to this. It's nobody's fault, especially not Rin's, but it feels like they've both been sleeping for so long. Maybe it's important to remember, sometimes, that it's not just Rin who has changed - Haruka and Makoto have been growing up too, if with less notice.

    “I didn’t ask for you to do this,” Steve says, as he cleans Bucky’s back, a few minutes before Steve’s mother will come in and take over. And no, this, this is the most offended Bucky has ever been, because he knows, and nobody needs to tell him what he should or shouldn’t do because he knows, he’s always known.
