  1. Summary

    Chiaroscuro—the use of strong contrasts between light and dark, usually bold contrasts affecting a whole composition.

    Ostensibly a collection of batfam stories, but really just an excuse to write Damian character studies. Fics are arranged chronologically, but can be read separately. Updated irregularly.

    Summary

    Alternate Universe. The Western Army is defeated; the country stands, uneasy, under the hand of the Tokugawa.

    The only Rurouni Kenshin AU fic that matters. Also it has A+ pining.

    Summary

    A DC universe where moms are awesome and raise their kids right. Now with more melanin and queerness. Also, Gotham's in Michigan and Metropolis is in Connecticut. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. Fics are in chronological order but are all standalone.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    The superior DC canon, and the best possible version of Bruce Wayne. Literally better than every Batman comic I've ever read.

  4. Rec *

    Summary

    The one where Vader turned double agent for the Rebellion about three years after ROTS, and Leia is now his primary contact with the Rebellion.

    This is a collection of oneshots that all fit into the same universe, but posted in no particular order. Updated when the muse strikes me.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Manages to keep the heart of Star Wars intact even as it dramatically changes the details. Pitch perfect characterization, particularly of Leia. The best Tatooine worldbuilding I've ever seen anywhere, including in the actual Star Wars movies.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Pitch perfect and heartbreaking. There's something endlessly bittersweet about the characters you've loved, the characters that feel "real" to you, becoming legends and stories and fairytales before your eyes. It hurts in the best way, and so does this fic.
