    Summary

    Having fled from Halifax in the wake of an abrupt break up with his girlfriend of ten years, Josh finds himself back in his home city of Toronto, trying to rebuild his life. Entering the volatile world of startup culture, he meets Avi...

    ...who at thirty-one, is not exactly working her dream job or living her best life. Hell, she's not even sure her boyfriend is actually right for her, handsome, successful and dreamy though he is.

    Through video games, sci-fi references and cheesy team events, Josh and Avi work on muddling through this thing called adulting in a post-pandemic world as best as they can...

    And the results? Well. Only time will tell.

    Summary

    “It was a pleasure doing business with you, Major.”

    “Forgive me when I say the feeling is far from mutual.”, he grimly took the hand: “Goodbye, Professor Xavier.”

    He turned to walk out of the room, but before leaving he stopped by him, grabbed him by the collar and yanked him up to whisper in his ear:

    “You are no longer my problem. The Professor is now your Master. I heard some things about him. I wouldn’t anger him. See you.”

    Stryker threw him back on the floor and left without another word. Left him alone. Alone with a foreign human. The room was warm. He started to tremble.  
      
    -------

    At the end of the war, the allies freed the prisoners in the concentration camps all over Europe. Thousands could walk free for the first time in years, millions would never walk the surface of the earth again. And a few just disappeared. Some fled. Some were killed. Some were captured.

    Only one was send away. And now, years later, his remains are discovered by one Charles Xavier on the mission to save his little sister. But there is not much left, not even a name.

    Who is this man?

    And all those nights I walked you home

     

    At the end of the day, all that Childe has ever been is a chess piece in an Archon’s hand.

    Why had he expected it to be any different when it came to Zhongli? 

     

    Well they meant nothing 'cause you up and walked away

    And I just wonder what it'd take to make you stay

    Summary

    Izuku Midoriya was always a mystery to those that knew him. He was supposed to have a quirk, yet he didn’t. He was supposed to speak, yet he usually didn’t. Everyone just assumed that Izuku was invincible and didn't feel pain, after all he never cried. They were correct on one account. No-one truly understood Izuku's quirk until the day it comes roaring to the surface.

    (AKA Izuku has a super powerful quirk that nobody understands, sorry, I'm bad with summaries)

    Summary

    Jooheon feels his heart literally stop.

    The figure in front of him had red eyes and awfully pale skin. Red horns coming out from his forehead and fangs peaking out from their mouth. Their veins bulging out from their neck with a red outline all the way to the cheeks. But most importantly, Jooheon couldn’t believe that this thing in front of him looked exactly like Changkyun.

    Summary

    Despite what some sharp tongues with grudges would tell you, Sadık loves to share. His fortunes with his friends. His cooking with his guests. His country with interested visitors. His bed with Herakles.

    And because Herakles asked him, because he liked Michele good enough, because Michele's Irish friends seemed like fun, he's sharing with them. Tea, coffee and stories until the sun rises over the roof terrace.

    Summary

    One barrage of meteors from the starry yet cloudless sky had secured his triumph in conquering the realm. The Blue-Star Moon had foretold them of the successes to befall tomorrow, but the rift in the sky beckoned for the opposite. Heaven’s Will was never to be defied and the consequences were something that even Gods feared.

    In a single night, he turned into a wisp of a lone soul, contracted to his obligations of the realm that he fought so hard to conquer, but left with no one to accompany him. Yet it was no matter. He was unafraid of waiting, passing time idly, in the hopes that one day he could fulfill a promise made amongst a sea of plum blossoms, and carry it out to the edges of heaven, and the corners of the sea.
