  1. Summary

    Some ten or fifteen years post-game, Frisk, Chara, and Asriel do their best at the whole adulting thing: Navigating the challenges of physical and mental health, of maintaining good communication in their polyamorous relationship, and also weathering the strain of two partners working demanding political jobs that often require them to travel abroad on short notice while the third partner is an agoraphobic Big Time Homebody.

    Thankfully, their friends and family are there to be a close-knit and helpful support network.

    (And they have an enthusiastic sex life, too.)

  4. Summary

    Some weird sadde A/B/O AU for Madoka that exists at least 90% as a shameless excuse to play with worldbuilding.

    Marked complete for now but may accrue additional oneshots here and there if I get any other ideas for this setting.

    Summary

    "I'm sorry," he said again.

    "Sorry's not enough, Sev. Be fucking better." Lily shut the door in his face.

    He spent the summer reading in the library, the park, and then sneaking home when he was hopeful his parents would be asleep. He tried to think about bravery, but sometimes he just thought about Lily's hair, the way it went more golden in summer. He tried to think about nobility, ethics and grace, but the clouds chased each other, fat and white, across the sky and he wasn't sure what any of this had to do with him.

    His father took him fishing by a dreary brown creek and they sat in silence. Severus could hear every creak, every lap of the water, every inhale and movement his father made. He thought maybe if he just said nothing, nothing ever, he'd never say anything again that made Lily's face go so flat and distant. If he said nothing, maybe nothing would hurt.

    His father reached for a beer can in a swift movement and Severus froze himself unflinching. He sat in that silence afterward, slowing his heartbeat, picking apart the sudden rigid shell of his shoulders. His father hummed, cracking the can open like a gunshot.

    (slight AU in which Sev is better at life)

    Summary

    When Harry was eleven years old, his Hogwarts letter came by owl. He'd been accidentally blowing windows open and lighting cauliflower on fire for years. James took Harry to go get his wand at Ollivanders, and Lily took Dudley to the Owl Emporium where he tried to convince her they should build an aviary in the backyard. They came home with a fat black cat who hissed at everyone. Dudley named him Spooks, and Lily called him Monster.

    "Did you have to?" said James. "That is the meanest beast I've ever met, and I've known Remus unmedicated on full moons and a pubescent Sirius thwarted in love."

    Lily, who had ink on her cheek and a ballpoint pen stuck behind her ear, waved vaguely at the living room without looking up from her arrest report. Dudley was asleep in an armchair. The cat sprawled across his lap. Both its front paws were wrapped around Dudley's arm as it cleaned his wrist with aggressive fondness.

    "Alright," said James. "Yeah, you had to."

    Summary

    Once upon a time, Harry Potter hid for two hours from Dudley in a chemistry classroom, while a nice graduate student explained about the scientific method and interesting facts about acids. A pebble thrown into the water causes ripples.

    Contains, in no particular order: magic candymaking, Harry falling in love with a house, evil kitten Draco Malfoy, and Hermione attempting to apply logic to the wizarding world.

    Summary

    "Hi," you say. "I’m Jane. Last year I fell through a mirror and into an upside-down world full of sentient playing cards where I overthrew the evil queen. And if you even think of laughing or pretending you don’t believe me I am going to stab you with a fork."

    He’s facing you full on, now. Staring.

    "Well?" you say. "What was yours?"

    "...Magical pony adventure," he says finally.

    Summary

    “Indeed?” purrs Karkat, shifting his attention suddenly and prowling closer to Dave. You watch, transfixed, as he reaches out and strokes one finger down Dave’s cheek, then the very tip of his claw continues its trail south, down his throat, over his collarbone, down his chest. You can see Dave’s hastily-suppressed shiver. Karkat takes a step forward, and Dave takes a step back. “I hardly think you are in a position to be making demands,” Karkat says, and there’s a flurry of movement and before you know what’s happening Karkat has Dave spun around and bent over the arm of the sofa, pressing hard up behind him.

    “Oh, Jesus, hello,” says Dave.
