    Summary

    Given my love of taking dark and gritty things and making them light and fluffy, I suppose that in a monkeys writing Hamlet sort of way it was inevitable that I would write a Metal Gear high school AU where the various Snake brothers actually are obnoxious teenagers instead of just acting like it, and where Otacon's family situation is not yet completely hopeless.

    Summary

    Moira O’Deorain has won. Her rivals within Talon destroyed, her trio of loyal Weapons - the Changed and copper-eyed Tracer, the silver-eyed Oilliphéist, and golden-eyed Widowmaker - at her command, to remake the world.

    Talon scrambles, reasserting its positions in the aftermath of its civil war. Moira O'Deorain's control over the board grows, as she brings on ever more allies, while simultaneously looking for even more candidates to be Changed, to further extend her influence.

    But her adopted daughter - and loyal Weapon - Lena "Tracer" Oxton is unhappy, as are her wives. They demand, unexpectedly, that nothing else proceed until Angela's wife Fareeha is properly fixed, and her unsettled mind calmed, once and for all.

    This story - a side-step/alternate-ending sequel to The Armourer and the Living Weapon - will be told in a series of eddas, sagas, fragments, texts, and cantos, all of which serve their individual purposes. To follow it as it appears, please subscribe to the series.

    Summary

    n. the sad awareness that the unfolding plot of your life feels new and profound but is not unique, just one of a few dozen possible riffs on the same chord progression, while the tunes reverberating from the jukebox in your chest are all covers of old standards from the Great Emotional Songbook, which is 98% identical to that of the chimpanzee.

    or, in other words, wonwoo is fine, until he's not (he never was, he's been lying) and then he has to deal head on with the fact that he’s been wasting his life both searching for and running from things that do not exist.

    Summary

    Moira O’Deorain has won. Her rivals within Talon destroyed, her trio of loyal Weapons - the Changed and copper-eyed Tracer, the silver-eyed Oilliphéist, and golden-eyed Widowmaker - at her command, to remake the world.

    A new and better world needs a new and better architect to help design it, and Moira and Angela - and Tracer - know precisely who that should be. To Oilliphéist's disappointment, this acquisition doesn't involve violence - because at least this once, Talon has a much more enticing alternative to offer.

    Summary

    (It all starts with Peter Pettigrew dying twice.

    First, Peter kills Wormtail (discreetly), and then Sirius kills him (less discreetly).

    It's never easy losing a friend, even in a war, but it's far worse when it means you lose the last of your childish hopes.)

    War is a complicated, messy thing. The Marauders have their fucked up shit to deal with, but they also have each other. It's not all that easy, though.

    Summary

    Moira O’Deorain has won. Her rivals within Talon destroyed, her trio of loyal Weapons - the Changed and copper-eyed Tracer, the silver-eyed Oilliphéist, and golden-eyed Widowmaker - at her command.

    Lena Oxton hasn't been flying the kind of aircraft she used to fly - the kind she loved to fly - since the Slipstream accident. Sure, she's handled the personal light flyer once in a while, that's been fine. But anything with complicated aeronautics - or that reminded her too much of the Slipstream test aircraft - has been off limits. But one day, when she's out supervising Oasis Security forces, a fighter jet flies overhead, and suddenly, everything seems to have changed.

    It's been over a decade since Emilie's death. Gabriel has ruined his relationship with his son, and has given up on his wife. His only solace comes from one who grew from a small girl into a strong, smart, beautiful woman under his eyes, one who knows as well as he does that this is no longer a fight for the balance of the universe, but simply a playful rivalry.

    But the important question isn't what happened these last 10 years; it's what's going to happen over the next 10

    Summary

    Summary

    “Is that your way of asking me to cook for you sometime?” Alec says. “'Cause I will.”
    The moment the words escape his mouth, Alec finds himself slightly panicking. Because he does not talk like that, ever―in a way that might even be considered flirting―and he still doesn’t understand what it is about Magnus that brings stuff like that out of him. More importantly, he has a boyfriend.
    Magnus, however, just looks mildly surprised as their eyes meet.
    “My, my. Master chef, good family name, and charming?” Magnus tilts his head ever so slightly. “Careful, Mr. Lightwood,” he says in a low, teasing voice, mouth curving up in a smile. “You’re gonna make me swoon.”
    ---

    One night, Magnus spots a handsome stranger in the elevator of his apartment building – which wouldn’t be a big deal if said stranger didn’t turn out to be dating Magnus’s neighbor. The stranger soon becomes Alec, and their paths end up crossing more than once. A tentative friendship develops as they slowly get to know each other, and they both find that it’s effortless in a way neither of them has ever known. It's only when other kinds of feelings start getting involved that things become a bit more complicated.
