    Summary

    Jisung never wanted to fall in love with Hyunjin.

    It was something that happened without warning, without fanfare, and he's been dealing with the consequences of it for almost five years. It would be fine, he thinks, if Hyunjin loved him back; but he doesn't, and Jisung does his best not to let that hurt.

    Or at least, this version of Hyunjin doesn't.

    The discovery of a stone circle in the woods shows Jisung that their current life together might not be the only one; and maybe, if he ignores the way it seems to sap his strength and his warmth, Jisung can find a life where Hyunjin adores him the way Jisung wants to be adored.

    But their current lives keep ticking on regardless; and as things begin to shift between the two of them, it becomes apparent that in searching so desperately for the Hyunjin he wants, Jisung might lose the one he has.

    Summary

    "Lonely little life
    And nobody believes you now
    You're bleeding magic out."

    He was convinced she was not like the others. She was one of a kind. An anomaly. A mystery he was all too eager to unravel.

    inspired by IDKHow's Bleed Magic

    Summary

    Pirate AU set in 17th century England. Tony Stark is a rich Baron, a sweetheart of the king’s court, and a philandering celebrity reigning over all the balls and taverns in London...until the day it all changes. Disillusioned after witnessing the horrors committed by the British empire with the very weapons he made, Tony closes shop, gives away his fortune, and puts his life of decadence and debauchery in London behind him. He moves to his abandoned country estate in Cornwall, which sits atop a cliff, underneath which a caved in beach serves as a hideout for pirates.
    In his absence, the notorious pirate, Steve Rogers, known as the Rogue Irishman, often squats in his house admiring the beautiful portrait of the manor’s master when he’s not robbing the rich neighbors, seizing their merchant ships, and setting any and every slave ship he comes across free. Tony’s conflicting thirst for solitude and adventure and Steve’s thirst for Tony leads to a bodice ripping affair and lots of pirate shenanigans.

    Summary

    some forget that their enemies are much the same as he who fights to slay them, whilst others relish in knowing the pain they have brought to those they most despise.

    Kuma Sabiston has fought a long battle against so much: against the man who stole his heart and slaughtered his parents, against the humans who think it their birthright to slay Kuma’s species, and against his very self. Things are not easy, but as a war general, he learns to prevail.

    Mizuku Rashiko has been angry for a long time: angry at the one who took his parents away from him, angry at the species their murderer once belonged to, angry at the Hunters for not doing better to protect his parents like they once promised they would, and most notably, angry with himself. Mizuku allows that anger to fester into a searing rage that gives him the strength to get out of bed and continue to fight that without that anger he would otherwise lack.

    They were never meant to fall in love, and how they did anyway could only be speculated about with mystified eyes, for not even they themselves knew how. They were supposed to hate each other, they were supposed to kill each other:

    So why could they not?

    (This is a first draft.)

    Summary

    November 1643 to December 1644.
    Even for a soldier like James Buchanan Barnes, the phrase uttered by one of his fellow fighters drawing comparisons with the nearly three decades of blood and destruction over in Germany is terrifying - 'a war well-managed can be made to last many a year'. Yet with the two sides so evenly matched victory seems far away for either, so they each try to bring in outside help. With rather different results.....

    Summary

    October 1642 to November 1643.
    The advantage is mostly with the king in the first year of major fighting, but he fails to make it pay against his often divided enemies. Parliament loses its leader in John Pym but manages to stay in the fight (just) and after the first battle fought at Newbury the war seems to be going nowhere fast. Also Luke gets married, which means – gulp – there will soon be gra.... children of children for a certain nobleman!
