    Summary

    '"I think I loved some friends."

    "The ones from college?" She shakes her head at this. "The ones from high school?" Another shake of her head.

    "The ones from the east." She replies quickly, removing her chin from her hand and using her left hand to smooth out her hair again, it's a way of fidgeting for her. "I don't remember their names...but I know, they were special?" She's confused, not ready to speak again. There's old memories that seem to fill in her brain, the kind that you'd see when you're having a flashback.'

    A fashion designer and a model discuss business along with other subjects.

    Summary

    The year is 1994. The Iron Curtain has come down, the oligarchs have begun their rise to power, and Kyril Ren, a powerful member of the infamous crime syndicate Solntsevskaya Bratva, has been given a job: hunt down an estranged uncle who has been snitching to the FBI.

    Irena, nicknamed Rey by her adoptive father Luke, is a Krav Maga instructor in New York who has finally been able to obtain her original birth certificate from Russia. Turns out she was born in a little village named Vershinino, but if she wants to know more than that… she’s going to have to go there herself.

     

    TL;DR: What up here's a Russian Mafia AU.

    Summary

    Shiro is a fresh-faced cop placed in the worst precinct in the city where kids are constantly cycling in and out of the criminal justice system. He catches Keith joyriding after stealing from a liquor store, chilling out on the edge of a cliff overlooking the ocean and sitting on the hood, beer in hand. They talk and Shiro lets him off, saying that he sees himself in the kid and hopes he gets his act together. He doesn’t, but probably because it’s an excuse to see Shiro again.

    Summary

    "Look at her and tell me her eyes are not a house fire waiting to happen." - Topaz Winters, 'Infernal/Inferno'.

    Ginny Weasley is sorted into Slytherin, much to everyone's shock, horror, and later on, delight. Seventh born, only daughter, desperate for recognition and even power, if it means people will listen to her for once instead of dismissing her outright, Ginny begins to find her place among the cunning and ambitious. Riddle's diary leaves marks unseen, but some fires burn a bit brighter with every passing year, and serpents are known to seek out heat. Another war approaches, and Hogwarts learns not to underestimate grinning girls with fire in their eyes and snakes in their hair. (A Slytherin!Ginny AU, for the most part still canon compliant).

    Summary

    Tina and Graves rescue a teenage boy from his abusive mother and quickly learn he's not just a no-maj. Knowing they'd lose their jobs for attacking his mother, but unwilling to let MACUSA experiment on Credence, they keep him hidden until they meet Newt, who may be able to help.

    Credence has never had so many people who care for him. People willing to put their jobs on the line just to keep him safe, people who want to teach him magic and tell him he doesn't deserve the constant beatings. But his crush on Mr Graves can only end badly, so he agrees to go to England with Newt, Queenie and Jacob, and start school at Hogwarts if they can get that obscurus out.

    Harry's starting his fifth year under the hateful eye of Dolores Umbridge. But the new Gryffindor in his year needs looking after, and Harry's good at that. He and Credence quickly find out they've got a whole lot in common.

    Summary

    I was waiting on a moment

    But the moment never came

    All the billion other moments

    Were just slipping all away

    A retelling of the original 1972 manga (with other Good Shit from various other adaptions/canons that we like), but taking place in the 90s. Or perhaps there lies more to our story...?

    (The mikimiko isn't a side pairing in this, it's in your face.)

    Summary

    (Hiraeth (Welsh) – a homesickness for a home to which you cannot return, a home which maybe never was; the nostalgia, the yearning, the grief for lost places of your past.)

    The Yugoslav Wars of the 1990s: welcome to hell.

    As Rey grows up in a country which technically isn't at war, even though its consequences are felt all around them, she forms a strong bond with Kylo, an odd young man whose personal involvement in the conflict may run much deeper than it seems. Over the years, as political plots thicken and the war rages on, Rey must learn the difference between idealism and doing the right thing, discovering the price of personal happiness.

    Also known as "that squatting Kylo in a tracksuit fic you didn't know you wanted." Comes with lots of swearing, East European shenanigans and references to some pretty cool music.

    ‘Because–’ Yoongi starts, but realises his tone is loud and harsh and that’s giving Namjoon exactly what he wants. So he takes a deep breath and another elongated sip of whiskey before starting again. ‘Look he's a classical musician, right? They're always dickheads. Just because their parents paid through the nose to get someone to teach them “Every Good Boy Deserves Food”. You can’t just buy talent. Fucking wankers.’

    'Wait, didn't you use to take piano lessons?' Namjoon smirks.

    'Yes, but I’m a wanker with talent.'

    Namjoon nods. ‘I know. I’ve walked in on you too many times. Impressive.’

    Summary

    "He could get used to sitting next to Yoongi like this. To have him around. To have the band around. To smile and feel happy. To see Yoongi sitting in front of an instrument and having him play just for him.

    'If this was my happy ending,' Jimin thinks, resisting the urge to lean his head on Yoongi's shoulder, 'if I wasn't who I am, I'd just let you have me whenever you want. You could have me anytime.'"

     

    As spring turns into summer, school band Cotton Candy unexpectedly loses its singer and the members are forced to look for a new vocalist. Six boys find one in the form of the promiscuous pink haired boy Park Jimin who makes a home in their hearts and finally finds a place he belongs.
