    Summary

    “Thank you,” he says, holding out his hand for her to shake. “I’m Scott. Scott Moir.”

    “Tessa Virtue, nice to meet you.” She can’t help but smile back, despite the palpable awkwardness in the air. “Are you new at the paper?” She’s never seen his face before, and she wonders what desk he works for. Sports, maybe? It would fit the build.

    He nods and grins sheepishly. “Yeah, first day. Really started off well, running into staffers and all. I’m assigned to the metro desk, covering city politics for the start. You?”

    or

    Tessa and Scott both work for The Globe and Mail, in 1970s Toronto.

    Summary

    This substantial fragment was found in Hugh Addis’s Brother GX 6750 daisywheel typewriter at the time of his sudden death in 2001. It appears to be an unfinished contribution to a volume of reminiscences of Capt. Richard Vautrin, GC, privately printed as The Vautrin We Knew to mark the 25th anniversary of his killing at the hands of the Provisional IRA. Addis’s memoir, for reasons which will become tolerably obvious, was not included.

    *

    Strikethrough text and notes in square brackets indicate visible emendations made to the TS. Except where they may be of interest in revealing Addis’s state of mind at the time of writing, typographical errors have been silently corrected.

    Summary

    Set fifteen years before the first Street Fighter game, Dan Hibiki's father: Go Hibiki, is tasked with being a teacher and wants to mentor the prideful and aggressive Muay Thai fighter Sagat, solely because he sees great potential within the young fighter and the fact that his Muay Thai instructor is very corrupt and cruel.

    To make matters worse, the school has associations and sponsors with a powerful mafia that has sinister intentions with both Go and Sagat. If it couldn't get any worse, Go is also in a race against time, as his wife is in Hong Kong and is nine months pregnant and their child could be born at any minute. Man, I don't even want to imagine the ulcers Go is having right now!

    It's a story filled with tension, suspense, laughter and many other things that I hope you the reader feels while reading it! But will you feel it!? Will Go Hibiki make it out okay!? Well I guess you got to read to find out!

    Summary

    My most recent obsession has been A Way Out. God, I love this game. I finished it some time ago with my brother and thought to do some basic Writer’s Interpretations of a scene or two.
    This’n in particular is the part right after the beginning Infirmary stealth scene. It was short and quick so, why not? I also added a few of me own spins on it, just ‘cause.

    Summary

    In a diner outside Detroit in 1974, a recently-divorced long-hauler with a sharp tongue and a volatile temper is about to give up on everything. Just before he throws in the towel (and his cold breakfast across the diner), he meets a stranger with a bizarre accent, a vexing palate, and a messed up philosophy about life and death.

    Our unreliable narrator wasn't looking for a friend or trouble when he started hauling steel out of the Motor City, but as fate would have it, he finds both.

    Summary

    (I am the one who says 'fuck you') - Benjamin Garcia, 'Ode to the Corpse Flower'.

    Petunia Evans has always lived in her vivacious older sister's shadow. Plain, fretful, and unremarkable, she resigns herself to a bitter existence as Lily's resentful follower. In spite of this, it is Petunia, not Lily, who is the witch. All she can do now is attempt to make some sense of the sudden absurdity of her previously well-ordered world. Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, the Marauders, and a war on the horizon all conspire to make this rather difficult. (A witch!Petunia and muggle!Lily AU, covering the Marauders' years at Hogwarts and the First Wizarding War).

    Summary

    Note:Please read my other RnM fic “Love and Loneliness” before reading this one, or else you'll get lost really fast, and it'll answer your questions about the Rick/Julie relationship and such pretty quickly. This takes place during chapter 14 of that story, when Rick and Julie(my version of Rick’s wife) are dating, but not yet married. I love these two so much and one story wasn’t enough for me! I also wanted to expand on things from the original story. If anyone says anything about Diane, I counter with the fact the memory was fake, and while I do like the RickxDiane ship, I highly doubt she’s the “real” version of Mrs.Sanchez, for reasons.

    By the way, most characters in this story are OCs, I'd advise not reading this if you don't like that. And by the way, the rating MAY become E, I'm not a hundred percent sure yet, we'll see.

    Muskegon, Michigan 1978(again)
    A couple of months after getting together, Rick and Julie intend to have a nice relaxing getaway on a resort planet, but danger always seems to follow them.
