    Summary

    How did Xiao get here?

    It seems like just a few moments ago, he was a fearless and respected soldier for the Liyen army, under the command of the man whom he admired most.
    A few minutes ago, he was on a ship, hundreds of miles out from Liyue harbor, indulging in a life of piracy under the command of a man he quite despises.
    Now, he was aimlessly walking into a cave not yet explored, being pulled in by a melodic siren song ringing through his ears, convinced he was about to die.

    Or, how the goody two-shoes soldier turned pirate fell head over heels for a stupid little mermaid.

    Summary

    Dick Grayson had gone through many challenges throughout his lifetime, it would be ridiculous to state otherwise. He should have gotten used to them by then, and yet that seemed to never be the case. Somehow, the biggest challenge he had yet to face had a name just as pretty as her face, stolen from the Greek goddess of Spring, the symbol of re-birth and change. Yet neither of those were necessarily ever good, he had come to learn that at a high cost with time. They say you never forget your first love, and he couldn't help but wish it was a lie. He had tried hard, but nobody ever felt like her, nobody came close to her. In another life, perhaps, things could be different, better. But in this one, he was left wishing he could forget that night, dancing underneath the rain.

    Summary

The heroes have started making deals with villains to get their quirks back, and Overhaul is more powerful than ever. So when an up-and-coming undercover cop, Midoriya Izuku, gets an opportunity to infiltrate the Shie Hassaikai, it seems like the only option.

    Prequel to The Words We Never Said
    Sebas has been serving in the army for a few years now, though with a promotion, new duties arise.

Draconis, a weasel of a boy not particularly cut out for army work, though it's his duty to mould him into a half-decent soldier at least. Easier said than done, especially when you can't seem to get him off your mind.

    Summary

    After the Second Wizarding War, Eighth Year student and budding journalist Gabriella Ainsley is promised her dream job at The Daily Prophet if she successfully completes an assignment - interview and get the scoop on the Malfoy Family.

    Who was Narcissa Malfoy's first love? How did Lucius and Narcissa meet? What was the REAL reason their precious son and fellow Eighth Year student Draco Malfoy worked for one of the darkest wizards of all time?

    The longer she spends on this project, the quicker she discovers there is more than meets the eye to the haughty, flaxen-haired family.

    She also begins to find her loyalties tested: between her boyfriend, Montague, and her growing attraction for the young Malfoy heir; and - more importantly - between publishing lies to keep her coveted job, or telling the truth.

    But what IS the truth about the Malfoys?

    Summary

    “Why are we even here?” Wen Xu groused.

    “Yeah! That’s right! Why are we here?” Wen Chao immediately chimed, very obviously taking his cues from his elder brother – much to the latter’s irritation, judging by his immediate scowl.

    Lan Qiren knew that he needed to pick his next words very carefully. With recalcitrant students, a teacher only had a few opportunities to really connect with them. If he allowed them to dismiss him or categorize him as an enemy at this early stage, it would be an incredibly uphill battle to gain enough respect in order to teach them anything, and in this case, given the strength of their background and the fact that this little teaching session was both likely to be short and definitely completely unauthorized, it would quite possibly make it completely impossible to ever get through to them.

    “You are here,” Lan Qiren said solemnly, each word slow and thoughtful, “because your father is an ass.”

    Summary

    You are no longer human. You are not allowed to feel. You must master your heart so that it doesn’t corrupt you. You must gain the strength to tear it out.

    ***

    Childe trained for ten years to rid himself of all emotion. He followed his masters’ teachings to tear out his heart and become an unfeeling harbinger of death. Now, after the events in Liyue, he finds himself dying of a disease that could only mean one thing:
    He has fallen in love with the god who played him for a fool.
    He allowed himself to be corrupted by golden eyes.
    And now he will pay the ultimate price for failing to tear out his heart.

    Summary

    She killed him. But magic, even corrupt, has wants and needs and it wants its creator (half the Nowhere King or not) to live. It will never let him go and he knows it.

    Read this and know that this is as angsty as I can possibly write, angsty in later chapters.

    Summary

    Lan Wangji had just moved into a new apartment block. He had gotten everything set up just the way he wanted, with minimal problems. Having moved for the first time in his life, he hadn’t acquired too many things, which had made the whole process a lot quicker than he had expected. In fact, he was able to begin preparing for bed at eight thirty, changing into his pyjamas and about to brush his teeth, when he began to hear the cries of a small infant outside his door.
