    Summary

    This is the story of The Legion, F.J.S.J, before they are taken by the Entity. Through the diary entries of Susie and Julie we are witness to the evolution of a monster. Fully dashing regard for the guise of innocence, their journey encompasses numerous stops typical to that of the average troubled youth at the turn of the century. The destination, however, was darker than they ever could have imagined. A winding path paved with friendship, vice, and depravity; barelling into the Fog. Each chapter is a single entry, the author and date of the entry are indicated by the chapter title. This information is also listed at the top of the text. There are a lot of entries.

    Summary

    “On the street I see you walking ahead
    I take a picture of the back of your neck
    I wont do it to myself again
    I wont do it to myself again”

    A stolen Jeep Grand Cherokee, a country kid, an Italian, and a lot of States. What could've gone wrong?

    Summary

    Maybe it’s a biased opinion, but when it comes to soulmate marks, Jeremy’s is certainly the prettiest. And it’d be all the prettier if he had someone to share it with. But Jeremy has spent so long on Nintendo 64, amateur filmmaking, and selling himself for rent money that it’s easy to think it might be too late, especially now, when Michael is so certain that the new millennium spells their doom. Even if Jeremy found that soulmate, would he even have a chance to fall in love before the world completely went up in flames?

    Maybe it’s a biased opinion, but when it comes to soulmate marks, Rich’s is certainly the most frustrating. Once a modern day Shirley Temple turned teenage indie darling, Rich has nothing left to show for his days in the spotlight beyond crippling addictions and graphic burn scars. Between a menial customer service job and alternating liquor stores before the clerks get too friendly, Rich hardly has time to regard the peculiar blue of the mark on his arm or the eyes which correspond with it.

    And maybe it’s a biased opinion, but when Rich and Jeremy finally find each other, they’re certain that even the impending apocalypse isn’t enough to separate them.

    Summary

    He pulled my arm back more before letting go of my hand and whispering in a voice that I would be unable to hear if he wasn’t pressed against me. “Now throw it, Ernst.”

    The rock definitely flew. Not as far or as gracefully as Hanschen’s had, but it skimmed the water like his. I held my breath and counted, one, two, three skips across the surface before it slipped beneath the water.

    “See. I told you that you would remember.”

    When Hanschen stepped away, I felt an odd sense of emptiness. Like I felt better when he was there, guiding my body like his own. I stumbled a bit to catch myself before I tried to lean back into his touch. Hanschen laughed a quiet laugh from behind me. “But you must’ve forgotten how to stand in the process.”

    Summary

    Summer, 1994

    Sakura is home from college for the season doing her best to have a boring time while she works at the local pizza shop. It’s weird to be back in the small town she grew up in, especially after trying so hard to leave it. But it’s not so bad. She has her boys and her best friend Ino and it turns out that some people are way more interesting when you’re not stuck in high school with them. And a lot cuter, too. It’s not like she’s trying to have a fling, but if something good comes along, who is she to say no?

    Summary

    His face is on the news again. Unsmiling, a little wild-eyed in the flashbulb burst. Awkward bowl cut, split lip. A red bar beneath his chin reads: "106 MINORS SEIZED FROM STATEN ISLAND RELIGIOUS COMPOUND...."
     
    Credence is not technically a minor. Technically, according to the documents folded in a manila envelope on Tina's kitchen counter, he was supposed to have turned twenty-four in November. A minor technicality.

    It’s January, 1996. DOMA is in the works. The newscasters on WNET are inappropriately attractive. Clinton is trying to hold office. People can make phone calls anywhere, cordlessly, from brick sized phones. Credence Barebone has been freed from an abusive religious cult, and nothing makes sense anymore.

    Summary

    Tony Stark was always smart, people forget that. He was always resourceful and far too clever for his own good. Only, before, he was angry and young and reckless. You could argue he's like that now, minus the young part, the only difference is that he happened to have friends that were the same.

    It was a stupid idea, created by bored children at auctions and charity galas, named ‘the council of the future’, alluding to their inheritances, how they are the future, how they cannot escape it — or, that's what Tony likes to think. Sunset rolls her eyes and tells him he’s being dramatic.

    Now, they're all older and less naive and a lot more hurt.

    This is gonna be something.

    OR,

    Tony Stark before he was 'Tony Stark.' All of those boring charity galas have to pay off somehow, right? Basically influential, rich, damaged children that are somehow friends, and all that comes along with it.

    Summary

    Keith huffs out a breath, shoving his hands into the pockets of his ripped light wash jeans and kicking at an empty can of coke next to his feet. He’s just about to turn around and leave, give up on this stupid thing he’s managed to finally talk himself into doing, when there’s the shifting of movement behind him, followed by a loud thud, like the soles of boots hitting the ground.

    Boots worn by someone tall and broad and heavy; as if someone with a body packed with muscles just hopped down from the bleachers to join Keith back here.

    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 officially isn't at war, even though its consequences are felt everywhere, she forms a strong bond with Kylo, an odd young man whose personal involvement in the conflict may run deeper than it seems. Years go by, the war rages on and the political plots thicken, and Rey must learn the difference between idealism and doing the right thing, discovering the price of personal happiness.

    Also known as "what happens when you take the Star Wars plot and put it in a real place, in a real time, in a real war." Comes with lots of swearing, awkward flirting, old characters in new roles, angst, feels, drama, fluff, all-round Slavic shenanigans, and references to some pretty cool music.

    Summary

    [“There’s this thing that you do,” says Alec, exasperated. “This power you have that makes you look indestructible.”

    “You know that’s not true,” says Magnus, his breath warm against Alec’s chin.

    “I do,” replies Alec, “But even then … there are times when I’m not so sure.”]

    --

    1992, New York, a city hanging on to politically-tinged Cold War feelings. Alec Lightwood is a Corporate - a superhero for hire - jostling with a secret identity, holding on to a sense of a normal life, and the fact vigilantes keep turning up murdered in the gutters with no explanation.

    Things can only get worse when Magnus - an investigative journalist - starts peeling back Alec’s carefully-crafted mask … and then there’s the mysterious vigilante with the power to move things with his mind who keeps turning up wherever Alec goes - Alec just can’t cut a break.

    A neonoir slow-burn superheroes AU about identity, truth, and falling in love without knowing someone’s real name (ft. everyone has superpowers because I couldn’t help myself).
