    Summary

    A dimension where Rick never left Beth and her mom, instead growing into a nice pudgy #1 grandpa who doesn't really go on adventures and mostly only does safe science. The Beth and Jerry in this dimension never have Morty, and instead end up having another daughter a few years later.
    Since this Rick is Morty-less, and what the council deems as “unfit to protect his dimension”, he ends up assigned Combat Morty number 32. Number 32 was raised in the citadel and is very good at his job, but is also very weirded-out by normal social conventions and a bit of a paranoid hoodlum.

    Its an adjustment for everyone involved.

    (A series of ficlets based on cannibalshark's Combat Morty AU.)

    Summary

    Jim Kirk is nine when a massacre on Tarsus IV leaves him without a family and without a home. Spock is twelve when a strange boy in the desert saves his sehlat. Families aren't born; they're made. The look in mother’s eyes at his correction remained a mystery long after the colors of the night sky and the complex patterns of distant nebulae had become translatable by means of distinct and relatively straightforward equations.

    Summary

    In which Stiles goes along with one of Derek’s plans and ends up in an alternate universe as a result. He should’ve known better. He did know better, actually, and that means he has no one to blame but himself.

    Laura wants to lure the kid in with food and kindness and make a pet of him, like a feral cat. Derek wants to have him arrested for stalking. They’re at an impasse. (And the rest of the family is staying emphatically out of it in a way that suggests bets have been placed.)

    Summary

    Stiles was supposed to be exorcising a demon, okay? He does not have time for being pinned to the wall by Laura freaking Hale.

    or that fic where Stiles is sent back in time and decides to be a meddler.

    Summary

    Written for castielinablanket's suggestion that Night Vale isn't real - just delusions from a mentally ill Cecil, living in a mental hospital after a traumatic experience leads him to break down, and that Carlos's visits are rare as he finds it too painful to watch the man he loves deteriorate.

    Just gonna throw it out there that I'm not a med or a psych student, so there will be liberties taken with what little I do know of psychology and the sciences.

    Title taken from the Platters song "Twilight Time."
