    Summary

    Even the infinity of time had its limits. Even the novelty of immortality had an expiration date. And even the eventuality of fate comes to fruition, one way or another. For most, death was inevitable; inescapable. We all have an end stalking us, creeping behind us as we travel through life until the very last breath. It is the natural balance of the universe: to live and to die. Except, there are the very rare few who don’t get to tear through the ribbon at the finish line, forced to run the lap again, and again, and again, until… Well, there was no knowing when these people would get to stop running. Hyunjin didn’t know when he would finally get to stop running.

    OR: Hyunjin (an immortal) and Minho (a time traveller) keep meeting in different timelines, and somehow it's always when one of them is in trouble.

    Summary

    That night, 1984

    Steve sits at the kitchen table, a pack of frozen carrots wrapped in a tea towel against his swollen purple face. "I'm fine," he says. It’s over. They fought the monsters, and they won. Now he can rest.

    Except in real life, the credits don't roll, and they don't get to skip ahead to Christmas.

    Summary

    “The rhythm of the city. You know. Tempo. This city’s got a beat. You gotta hook into it. Once you got the beat, you can do anything.”
    “I can?”
    “Absitively posolutely!”

    It's early March of 1988. Wakko Warner was separated from his siblings about two years ago, but he kept one thing in mind: they would meet at their old home, the place they lived before their parents died. By the time he's made it to New York City, he's determined to get his family back together again, whatever it takes. But that family might just be a little bit bigger than he imagined.

That changes when up-and-coming actor and superstar Dream barges through his door, begs for a place to hide from the paparazzi, and spins his world the other way around in the process.

    Summary

    'Grabbing the cleaning stuff from behind the counter, Mara walks around towards the table, not looking where she’s going at all, and immediately regretting it when she crashes into someone and feels the oddly familiar feeling of icing down her front.

    “Oh, I’m so sorry,” a woman’s voice, nervously polite, and Mara looks up to say that it’s okay and finds her words stuck in her throat. Standing in front of her, clutching a crushed cake box, is a 5’11 goddess of a woman, blurting out polite apologies.'

    Or, how Mara and Hope crash into one another in a small town in the 80's, and fall in love.

    Summary

    -Mirtilli. Mirtilli idiota. Mirtilli. Pensa ai mirtilli-
    Era una frase tipica che si ripeteva in testa, aiutava nelle situazioni di panico, principalmente quando i suoi genitori erano dei completi imbecilli nei suoi confronti, quindi praticamente tutti i giorni. Era una parola che le venne insegnata dalla sua psicologa a 7 anni, quando i problemi cominciarono. Nonostante la sua fosse una famiglia purosangue e assolutamente contro qualsiasi cosa avesse a che fare con il mondo babbano, Nerva venne subito portata a farsi visitare. Ormai la sua situazione era diventata ingestibile ed i suoi genitori non sapevano più cosa farne.

    So he did not get home before that fucking American showed up.

    “I’m Dream,” the man greets, something arrogant at the corners of his lips. “And you must be George.”

    Spring, 1987. An American without a family comes to stay in Britain, and George does all the things he thought he’d never do before he runs back home across the Atlantic.

    Summary

    “You don’t believe in ghosts, do you Mr. Meng?” Yu Ziyuan asks, standing in his doorway, but not taking another step into the room as she brushes invisible lint off the sleeve of her turtleneck. She’s barely looking at him, but Meng Yao still feels as if he’s underneath a microscope.

    “I can’t say that I do, Mrs. Yu.” Meng Yao answers, dodging the full truth of it. If he admits that he does, he might just be out of a job.

    “Good.” Yu Ziyuan answers, clasping her hands in front of her and lingering for just a moment longer, “Maybe you won’t go running off in the middle of the night like the last two bookkeepers my husband has hired.” With that Yu Ziyuan turns to leave, but stops again, her chin raised.

    Summary

    So... there was a discussion on Tumblr and then this happened and I absolutely, completely and utterly, categorically refuse to take responsibility for it. It's all Polynya's fault.
    Artwork courtesy of the wonderful Polynya. Go and show that lady some love because she puts up with a lot from me and she absolutely deserves it.
    Please note that due to later chapters, the rating has changed from mature to EXPLICIT. Explicit chapters are clearly marked in opening notes, and CAN BE SKIPPED if you so wish.
