    Summary

    Garrett Hawke is a simple guy. He likes simple things. Things like playing MMORPGs with his friends. Their guild, Wicked Grace, has been pretty exclusive for a while. But, when the guild becomes interested in recruiting a new member - an elven warrior named Fenris - what used to be a "fun way of passing time" becomes "Operation: Hard in Hightown" (or, as Isabela calls it, "Operation: Get Hawke Laid"). Needless to say, this operation is anything but simple.

    Summary

    When Harry Met Sally...Met Reylo. Modernized, gender swapped, angsty and funny. Rey is Harry. Ben is Sally.

    -----
    Excerpt:

    His phone buzzes. The preview shows an eggplant emoji.

    “That’s my number. You’re not gonna ghost me again, are you?”

    He shakes his head. His number has been in her phone for eight years? Eight years.

    “Because I can’t be friends with someone who just disappears like that.”

    “I’ve been trying to disappear for the last six months and it hasn’t worked yet.”

    “It’s weird,” she says, looking up at him. “At any other time in my life I would be asking you to take me up to your place right now.”

    “You wouldn’t have to ask. At any other time,” he adds.

    “I’m too sad to fuck someone. I didn’t know that was even possible.”

    “You just described my early twenties.”

    It gets a laugh out of her. An actual laugh. It feels like a victory.

    “You may be the most attractive person I have not wanted to sleep with in my entire life,” she says, starting to walk south again.

    A flicker of rejection passes across Ben’s face, but he thinks he covers it reasonably well as he catches up to her.

    “That’s wonderful, Rey.”

    Summary

    “This can’t end well,” Wells warned, and Clarke waved him off as she grabbed her purse. “Clarke,” he said, sterner this time. She jerked her head up to look at him, her eyes wide in response to his sudden seriousness. “I don’t want you to get hurt.”

    “I’m not going to. I know he doesn’t want a soulmate, so it’s not like there’s anything he can say to make that hurt any worse,” she replied, and his eyes faltered.

    The Soulmate AU where Bellamy needs a fake soulmate to convince his ex he's moved on with his life and Clarke is totally okay with being recruited to be a fake soulmate to her actual soulmate that decided years ago he didn't want a soulmate. It's complicated.

    Summary

    Blackwater Bayou seems like a nice enough place just like Joffrey had appeared once upon a time. But under the gentile façade there’s corruption. Trapped in an abusive marriage to the alcoholic, pill-popping sheriff’s son who is also a cop, Sansa turns to the old gods for help. She’d heard there was once magic in the blood of the First Men and with an old book of spells and in her desperation, she begs for a protector to help her escape her violent husband. Instead, they send an avenger…

    Jon Snow knows a lot about the magic of the First Men but, tormented by his desire for his cousin Sansa, he left home to serve the Nights Watch six years ago. He had no idea everything would turn to shit for the Starks as soon as he swore his vows though. Murdered by his own men six years later, he finds himself unexpectedly returned from the dead. With a somewhat skewed moral compass and a new purpose in his life, he returns to the bayou to find Sansa…and kill everyone who’s ever wronged her.

    Summary

    Instead of murdering the shit out of people, Beyond has fucked off to Japan for an era of caffeinated self-care and anime escapism, participating an incredible new therapy called 'ignoring L's phone calls'. Then one day Light Yagami walks into his coffee shop without a death day hanging above his head, and somehow everyone gets what they need.

    2018 AU. (LABB never happened. The Death Note finds Light Yagami later in life, even more jaded with the justice system, but with a better idea of how to make real change. No one dies.)

    Summary

    For Eddie, senior year is supposed to be an under-the-radar kind of year. He's been avoiding all of his friends for months and his mental health has been steadily declining. Why rock the boat and make everything worse? His plans consist of getting into the local community college (easy) and avoiding Richie, the worst sort-of-ex-boyfriend ever (considerably harder.)

    Then Bill drags him to a stupid party, and Eddie's plans are thrown through a loop. Suddenly, "under-the-radar" seems like a cop-out. Eddie decides, once and for all, to stop settling for decent, for alright, for enough.

    Eddie's going to take his life back if it fucking kills him.

    Summary

    Castiel has been thinking about his strict, disciplined Boss for a long time. The way his neatly set hair would be a great handful to pull, how his broad chest would feel slick with sweat, or how his cock would feel inside Cas.

    When Cas is called into his Boss' office one day, he may be getting a punishment a little different than the normal ones.

    Summary

    Vincent had been coming to the café every weekday night at 10:45 for a while now, long enough that Leo recognizes him and knows his regular. A simple espresso with soy milk, sometimes with a muffin. He tried to give Vincent his number before, but Vincent didn't take up the offer, and Leo didn't push him; until today.

    Barista! Leo and Customer! Vincent. The cafe AU that every fandom needs.

    Summary

    What if the Sokovia Hydra Base wasn't the last one? What if Bucky Barnes joined the team early and relayed dozens of Hydra bases throughout America the Avengers had yet to discover?

    At one of these Hydra bases the Avengers recover a young mutant girl who takes a strong liking to Wanda Maximoff.

    AKA What would the Marvel Universe be like if Marvel actually cared about representation?

    NOTE: This was created because I was feeling really gay today so I decided to reimagine the Marvel universe where there's all sorts of LGBTQ+ representation.
