    Summary

    Hank and Don Hall are brothers and polar opposites to each other, but the things they do have in common help keep them closer than other siblings. Like their love for their parents, their need for justice, the fact that they're about to be given powers by a disembodied voice and become superheroes--

    Wait, what was that last one?

    (Set in my own personal universe, Earth-224)

In the past three years, much has changed, as Macy and Harry navigate life as a bicoastal married couple, alternating between the Azores Islands and Vera Manor. Macy has a mysterious dream one night, and since her daughter Maya is so precocious, how hard could a 2nd pregnancy be? Meanwhile, Abigael and Mel live together in NYC, want kids someday, and nobody trusts Abigael with their own. A suspected Sarcana rebel strikes Macy's she-shed. Harry spirits Macy away to Portugal. At Casa do Alentejo, a former Moorish palace, Harry and Macy learn Kizomba, a sensual ballroom dance from Angola. They reignite their passion hours later, in the deserted dance hall. While teaching at her NYC design studio, Rani is notified of her Great-Aunt Celeste's murder and investigates with her girlfriend Nico (Mel's ex). Macy keeps having odd dreams. Throughout this, Macy must learn to accept help from others, even if it means working with a past arch-nemesis who could be her sister-in-law someday.

    Summary

    Much to his chagrin, Revali heard many stories about how his parents met. The village told the cautionary tale of a beauty being stolen away by the villainous Master of the Gale, champion of Ganon. His father would tell him about a star falling from the heavens into his lap. His godmother would reassure Revali that story in particular was a load of quackery. The story of the Gale Master and the Star of Rito Village is all and none of those stories combined.

    Little did Revali know that his parent's story paved the path to right the centuries of wrongs under Ganon's sovereignty. That is, if Revali was brave enough to be more than the villain he was born to be.

    Summary

    Wade Winston Wilson is ugly. His skin's inside out. It ripples and moves every second of every day, at constant war with the cancer. Vanessa put on a brave face for him when she first saw the changes, but it turns out even she can't stomach the sight for long. He's ugly and alone and nothing will ever be good in life again -

    If only that were his only problem.

    But Weapon X is at it again, under crisp new management, turning orphans into super slaves and bringing out the big guns to make sure nobody interferes this go around (namely one Pool comma Dead). So now, not only is Wade alone and ugly forever, but he's got a bit of a pest problem in the form of a black-clad murder-happy man spider with a collar around his neck and an unhealthy obsession with tying Deadpool up.

    So maybe it's not all bad...

    Summary

    ‘Why should I apologise for the monster I’ve become?
    No one ever apologised for making me this way.’ 

    In a world where Harleen faces one too many harsh events growing up, she snaps early in her life. Striking an unlikely friendship in high school with the shy outcast Jonathan Crane, the two begin embracing their alter-egos; Harley Quinn and Scarecrow from a young age. Staggering through juvenile life together they both turn out scarred, damaged and eagerly drawn into the chaos that is Gotham city. Though being stuck in Arkham Asylum means that no one’s told the king there’s a new clown in town. But who better to disguise their way in and help break him out?

    ♦ • ♥ • ♦

    The Joker in this story is based off pretty much entirely on Heath Ledger's Joker, NOT Leto's. I want to explore the more villainous, manipulative Joker type that Ledger portrays with his more dangerously controlled insanity and see how he'd react to an entirely independent Harley Quinn.
    You’ll see the darker, rawer sides of these characters as they tread a similar path to Harley's backstory as shown in briefly in Suicide Squad.

    Summary

    Four friends sit around a table drinking, recording their conversation in a transcript for posterity. It seems that Mayfeld has quite the tale to tell about how he joined Ranzar Malk's crew, and got his hands on some of the biggest, darkest secrets the Empire had to offer...

    A short extract from The "Beskar Heart" Series.

    Summary

    This work is an expanded version of the seventh season of Once Upon A Time. I am altering some aspects of existing episodes and also adding new material. It is meant to be read as a supplement to season 7. I expect the reader to assume things happened between chapters as in canon, except when otherwise specified. Some chapters are altered versions of existing episodes, while other chapters are entirely new material taking place between existing episodes.

    Summary

    Robin would have existed with or without Batman
    [Because Dick was never one to be on the sidelines, he was born and bred to shine in the spotlight. He was never anyones push over, never anyones sidekick. He’d been told, been raised by his parents to always ensure that he is known as an equal to others, a partner, a leader. He would not be sidelined.]

     

    Or: a different origin story to Robin.

    Summary

    Drift thought he'd seen everything down in the Dead End. What he hadn't seen as a skiv he'd seen as a streetmech, and what he hadn't seen as a streetmech, he'd seen as a gun-for-hire. Then he receives a job offer with a bounty too large to ignore. The mech in question? "Megatron", as in "electron", as in the bomb. A miner, from Tarn. The crime?

    Poetry.

    Or: Four and a half million years ago, a bounty hunter from the Dead End met a miner who fancied himself a poet, and that alone changed everything.

    Summary

    “To be burdened with a love spell… I wouldn’t wish that upon my worst enemy, sorceress. But I’m not a miracle worker, or a charitable person, nor do I attempt to be either”, she says, and her words come out kinder than intended.

    She tells herself it is to soften the disappointment. Perhaps there is a part deep inside her, a part chained to dungeon walls along the row of all her repressed urges and desires, that is relieved to be finally accused of all the crimes she worked so hard to commit.

    Witch of the Wilds - the title suits her.

    Summary

    Three white wings shielded an embarrassed Cupid from the Speaker’s indignation. His hood up, wrapped in the shadow of Lucifer, he kept his eyes down, covering his guilty lips as if he were kissing a holy relic.

    Hiding the object of his crime wasn’t much use, because his arm was bleeding from the fragments of a broken arrow, and his face was pink with shame and the spell of love.

    Summary

    The beginning. Way before humanity became humane once again. Far before the seemingly winning cards were torn into shreds and tossed into the nearest garbage dump to rot.

    Far before humanity even had a chance against itself and a scorched world of its own creation.

    The pages are turning. Handwriting’s pretty atrocious, but they still turn.
