    Summary

    A collection of Samurai Champloo oneshots, most probably all of them Fuugen.

    Summary

    In the small country town of Garreg Mach in the early 1980s, Edelgard von Hresvelg has recently graduated high school. Bored to death working at her father's small woodworks store, the light of her life rests inside Byleth; a woman she has adored for many years. On the night of a party thrown by Mercedes, Edelgard decides two things; the first? She's going to tell Byleth she loves her. The second? She's going to follow up a lead on something kind of weird she saw outside her father's store today.

    But when weird turns into sinister, Edelgard von Hresvelg finds that she could never have prepared for the truth behind her small town's sleepy facade.

    Summary

    “Fine…” After a pause, Ernst shifted his weight away from Hanschen, sucking in air before asking. “Who do you like?”
    “God, this is boring, give me a dare.”
    “I gave you a truth! Answer it!”
    “I don’t wanna! Give me a dare!” Ernst shook his head, resting his chin on his knees and staring out, across the quiet night. Hanschen watched him for a few breaths, trying to find in his gaze what he was looking for. Then, he turned to stare out across the lake, searching for whatever had caught Ernst. “And make it a good one…” He almost whispered, hugging his knees even tighter.
    “I dare you to kiss me.”

    -Title from "When You're Smiling and Astride Me" by Father John Misty-

    Summary

    At the moment Peter is 17 years old, plus 8 months, 19 days, 11 hours, 1 minute and 32 seconds. He is supposed the be the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man of Queens, New York. Only instead, he's on another planet, staring down a dude who looks like the California Raisin got jacked, and he's scared shitless.

    When Peter is 17 years, 8 months, 19 days, 11 hours, 1 minute and 33 seconds old, he is still Spider-Man. He is still from Queens. He is supposed to be... somewhere. Probably not a hospital bed in 1987 Massachusetts. What the hell did he do this time?

    Plot-divergent AU starting from mid-Infinity War, in which Thanos decides to test out his newly acquired Infinity Stones in an interesting form of revenge or mercy or torture. (Let's face it, he's a fan of all three.)

    Summary

    He is nineteen when he first sees her.

    She comes to the rink alone, laces her skates alone, strokes warm-up circles alone...

    He looks at her, really looks her in the eye, and he decides he likes what he sees.

    She may be young, but she is hungry and angry, and for now? That’s enough for him.

    It’s not like he has a lot of options.

    Summary

    Presidio, Texas. 1980. The beginning of a new decade. Arthur Morgan, a man of who has processed several odd jobs and a past crime-ridden enough to make Al Capone blush, has landed a new gig as a private investigator, doing the work the police are too busy, or in this case, scared to do. He gets sent on a task to investigate a series of drug deal-locations that have all ended in violence. On one particular massacre, he comes across a suitcase, right above $4 million dollars. He takes it. Unknowingly, he becomes the prey to a predator, Dutch Van der Linde, and his infamous gang. Arthur, a veteran of the Vietnam war, believes he can defend himself and his wife, Mary, from this war he's engaged them in. However, after a series of miscalculated mistakes, the consequences of his actions engulf his life and sanity.

    Inspired by No Country for Old Men, this is a take of that story mixed with some Red Dead juiciness

    Summary

    She gives him a questioning look. “I thought it was a work of fiction.”

    “Doesn’t all fiction have some basis in real life experience?”

    A mental hiccup kicks its way through his brain as he remembers he never once hinted to anyone – the editors, the interviewers, even his father - that there was a hint of truth to the story, and yet the confession settles there, idling between the words. She smiles like she has caught him in an admission of guilt, and he thinks offhand if the scales of fate were controlled by a girl like her, he would willingly offer up his pound of flesh for her judgment. “To some extent,” he adds like a last ditch effort to mislead her.

    He feels like something has been taken from him, and he gave it up too freely. She turns her green eyes back to the first page, rereads the first sentence, and he watches her gaze sharpen with interest, not so polite, something with more intention.
