    Summary

    A thousand years passed quietly as Xie Lian was banished from the spirit realm he once called his home.

    His existence was complicated, an ancient forest god that lived inside a mortal body, his punishment for crimes long since atoned. Each day is never the same as he roams around his domain, caring for the plants and animals that adore him. There was nothing he truly missed from the past, he would be content to live the rest of his life in such a way.

    Yet, one day during a sudden storm, he comes across a fox he had never seen before.

    Those simple days of his would never be the same again.

    Summary

    Emma Swan does not believe in soulmates.

    Or so she says. Because if her soulmate did, actually, exist, he should have shown up by now. So, she must be a fluke, a broken cog in a system that really doesn't make much sense anyway. It is, she figures, why she agrees to meet David's friend before Regina and Robin's wedding. This guy doesn't believe in soulmates either.

    She's intrigued.

    Until she hears him talk. And everything flips after that.

    Summary

    “What are you doing the rest of the day?” he asks as they pick up their trash and toss it into the bin under his desk.

    She shrugs, “Just some errands. Some donor wrote us a really nice check and you know how Jackson trusts technology about as much as you do, so I offered to deposit it today since I was off. I’ll swing by the grocery store on the way home. Anything particular I should get for the week? I already grabbed the list off the fridge.”

    He gets up to kiss her goodbye and then she's out the door, saying goodbye to the rest of the squad as she leaves the precinct.

    He hasn't even been back at it for an hour when the work phone on his hip starts to vibrate. He unclips it and looks at the number in confusion. He swipes to answer and brings the phone to his ear.

    “Clarke?” He's not sure why she'd be calling this number and not his personal cell phone. Or why she’s calling him at all for that matter, he just saw her.

    There’s no response and he's about to say her name again when he hears gunshots on the other end and his blood runs cold.

    -

    Or the one where Clarke finds herself in a hostage situation and Bellamy will do anything to get her out.

    Summary

    Her mom is away a lot and her small town is kind of boring, but Jester thinks her life is overall pretty great. She has friends; she has Fjord and Beau. That’s all that really matters. She’s pretty sure she loves them even when they get all sad and distant in a way that makes Jester’s chest feel like it’s filled with pointy rocks.

    Then a long-lost friend starts appearing in her dreams, revealing potential she never knew she had.

    “I want to make Fjord laugh more and Beau hurt less,” Jester decides.

    “That can be arranged,” says the Traveler.

     

    (Or: The summer before her junior year of high school, Jester becomes a magical girl, wrestles with growing up, and falls a little deeper in love with her best friends. Not necessarily in that order.)

    Summary

    “Yes…” Sansa nods and tucks a strand of hair behind her ear. “The parts of history I’m interested in, I’m never able to find any books about.”

    “Like what?” Jon leans forward, resting his arms on his desk, looking at her with his complete attention.

    She opens her mouth to answer, but then, she closes it again and shakes her head. “It doesn’t matter. There are probably no books on it because no one knows anything about it.”

    “Tell me,” he says. “Please. Perhaps I can find something and create a lecture around it.”

    Summary

    Still grieving for his cousin after fifteen years, Harrison starts to forge some unexpected friendships, and wonders if there is more to Sören Sigurdsson and his family than meets the eye.

    Won't make sense if you haven't been reading Verhalen's Chains of Eternity. Familiarity with my fic The Ways of Paradox (which is set in a different universe) might be helpful but probably isn't required.

    (If they don't kill each other first.)

    Summary

    President Steven Grant Rogers was gearing up to run for president again and he had yet to deliver on his major campaign promise from the first term: reverse the effects of climate change by at least 40%. Luckily for him, billionaire genius inventor Tony Stark had just the technology to do it.

    Less luckily for Steve, he was totally into Tony, who had no idea Steve was gay because essentially no one knew Steve was gay. If Steve has to choose between a second crack at the office or a first crack at true love, which one wins?

    +++++++

    The "American President" re-telling no one was asking for (except my subconscious), where Steve is President and Tony is ... well... himself.

    Thanks to Aaron Sorkin for some of the dialogue and the general inspiration and to all of these yahoos for being so much fun to muck around with.
