    Summary

    By the time he’d hit his 17th birthday, he’d sorted his life out.
    It came down to this:
    His name was Stiles Stilinski. He was the son of the Sheriff and his wife, deceased, and his best friend was Scott McCall, an ex-asthmatic werewolf with a nurse mother and an absent father. He was the cleverest in his class, after the strawberry blonde he had a crush on, and he had been diagnosed with ADHD at the age of seven. On full moons, he ran around and cooked for the local pack of werewolves. And he was a demon changeling.

    Stiles has managed to avoid Hell and its natives for near 16 years. He's almost managed to fool himself he's human. And best friend who smells of wet dog or not, he thinks he'd got a pretty good deal with this second chance at a life, and is planning to stick with it. But, unknown to Stiles, the new king of Hell has other ideas...

    Summary

    As the war between Jotunheim and Asgard reaches its head, Laufey hears word of how Odin intends to change the tide in the realm eternal’s favor by thievery of both item and soul. Desperate to save his child and his home from a terrible fate, Laufey has no other choice but to send both of Odin's targets into hiding. Surviving in a completely different world while hiding from the all-seeing eye of Asgard, bounty hunters, and natives is no easy feat as Loki struggles to find a way to help his people while protecting both himself and the Casket.

    At the same time, Tony Stark knows he is living on borrowed time as the device that was meant to keep him alive slowly poisons him. As strange things start to occur around Malibu, it seems that life was offering him one last mystery to solve before he kicks the bucket. Becoming obsessed with finding the answers, his search has him crossing paths with many interesting individuals, but one mysterious beauty of a man is seen both everywhere and nowhere.

    Being pulled into a planet threatening game of cat and mouse with a splash of secret agents, scientists as crazy as himself, magic, and aliens was not what Tony signed up for.

    Summary

    Seventeen years old Shadowhunter Maryse Trueblood ends up in the Seelie Realm after a botched mission -- wounded and in need of help. A handsome Seelie saves her and they fall in love.

    Maryse eventually returns to her own world, sick and acting unlike herself. Robert Lightwood inadvertently becomes involved with this, as he is infatuated with Maryse, and the two seek out Magnus Bane for help in searching for a warlock healer to treat her. Eventually this bonds the group, forming a alliance btwn Nephilim & Warlocks...with a secret so incredible yet potentially a threat to the existing order -- that it was voluntarily struck out from Shadow World history by an extensive memory wipe -- everyone forgets, including the warlock enacting the wipe himself.

    With the alliance and all related events erased from memory, friends become foes, the Last Stand of the NY Institute still occurs, and events carry on as everyone knows them today.

    18 years later, to the very date that the memory wipe was enacted, Alexander Gideon Lightwood hears music in the winds swirling about him...along with a sweet yet sinister lilting voice beckoning him to come home...

    Summary

    A wish has been made to the Norns. One that must be granted. Time and space has been folded to see it fulfilled, but such an act always has consequences. History will be rewritten. Previous events will be lost or molded into an entirely new shape. A new villain will emerge on Earth, one who kills for sport and likes games.

    Will Odin believe in the power of a second chance? Will Thor catch a clue? Will Loki even agree to assist lesser beings?

    There will be humor as well as angst and plenty of opportunities for some to receive the slap upside the head they deserve. The story begins just prior to the conclusion of the fight between the Avengers and the Chitauri but does not start on Midgard.

    Summary

    What if Loki was able to warn his past self, so he did not lose control during his regency and was able to act as he normally would? What if he had been able to remain calm and in control of himself, and the situation?

    "How?" Loki demanded.

    "Betrayal," his future self stated simply, rage clear in every syllable. "But you must control your reaction and come to see me, or you will repeat my mistakes and we will miss an opportunity to take control and alter things in our favor."

    It would have changed everything.

    The Convergence is over, the Reset has done its work, and Odin is awake. Having spent nearly 7 years as king, Loki is more than ready to hand the kingship back.

    Loki's determination to be a good partner to Sigyn will bring his duties into conflict as he seeks to win her back. They may be planning a wedding, but they're still so far apart.

    And then there's Steve...

    Summary

    Sequel to The Long Game

    It's been five years since Loki became king after Thor's banishment, and over three years since the old guard revolted against him. Three years where Loki has struggled to rule well, raise two difficult children, and grieve for his missing wife. Lonely and frustrated, Loki's sanity is starting to fray, but the return of the missing Vanaheim and the intentions of its newly crowned queen will test Loki's hard earned maturity and open the Nine Realms up to new possibilities as the Convergence approaches.

    Tested to the extreme in a way he has never experienced before, Loki must find a new kind of strength within himself to have a chance at the life he desperately wants.

    Summary

    Loki has learned that the only way to get what he wants is to play the games he's good at. Now, Thor is banished, Odin sleeps, and Loki is king; a role he never wanted, but must uphold until Odin wakes, whenever that may be. Loki has to ensure his brother is safe, his kingdom avoids war, and his illegal marriage to Crown Princess Sigyn of Vanaheim remains a secret until the right time, all the while dealing with the truth of his heritage. He longs to show everyone that he can make Asgard great, but in the process he may lose what matters most to him.

    Balancing politics, affairs, love and family, this will be the longest game Loki has ever played, but he is determined to win.

    Summary

    She almost smiles, and true alarm starts to build in his chest. “I’m afraid I’m not here for something so small. Professor Roberts has resigned.”

    “Good,” Draco says honestly, “Would you like a list of suitable alternatives? I know a number of competent potions masters abroad, but then of course you’d have to hire another teacher to act as the Slytherin head. I’m afraid you’ve dried up all the half decent Slytherin Potions masters.”

    “Not all of them,” she says quietly.

    He blinks. She can’t be serious. “You can’t be serious.”

    “Gravely,” she says, “Mr. Malfoy, I am not above begging.”

    What the bloody fuck. “I don’t even like potions!”

    ~

    Draco returns to Hogwarts.

    He has a duty to his blood and his name and his house, and he will fulfill it.

    Summary

    The debates about Dark and Light aside, the Jedi widely accepted three ways of viewing the Force, which were the Unifying Force, the Living Force and the Cosmic Force.

    A few cultures were quite happy to let them keep their delusions on the matters of Wild Force and Undying Force.

      Series: ever upward by stranglerfig
      On a cold winter night, 8 year old Harry gets thrown out into the garden by the Dursleys. There, he meets a garden snake who cajoles Harry to leave the Dursleys and live with it and its family in their den - "It’s better than this place. Warmer, darker, more meat." - only to realize that Harry's to big to get even partially into the den when they arrive.
      But his new friend and its family don't give up. After all, it has promised Harry a home. And the snakes know of a bigger den: "Biggest one I know of. Can certainly fit a two-legger like you." Okay, there's supposed to be a 'scary' snake, and it's far away, but the snakes are determined that Harry has to go there.
      And so he does.

      A wonderful tale with great worldbuilding and well worth the read.

      Fic 1: to leap and love the fall - 1/1 - 6.685 - G
      The centaur tilted his head. “And what is a human boy doing riding a thestral into the Forest?”
      “I’m going to visit a friend. Well, a friend of a friend. Sort of. It’s a snake in the castle.”

      In which Harry meets a garden snake, discovers magic, and sets off for a better life.

      Fic 2: to be known as himself - 17/17 - 51,601 - G
      Living with the basilisk is going to take some adjusting, like learning to navigate hidden tunnels, keep himself secret, and figure out how to use magic (easier said than done). The castle and forest are full of dangers, and as Harry tries to fit into a world of elves, ghosts, and talking portraits, he'll find out if he's up to the challenge.
