    Summary

    On Halloween of 1981, Averick Potter's life changed for good. Her twin sister, Hyacinth, had been hailed the savior of the entire Wizarding World and Averick had more or less been thrown to the side.

    Not that she remembered that, of course.

    St. Joseph's Catholic Orphanage of Bristol was no place for a child to be raised. Unfortunately, Averick Smith was an orphan and didn't have the luxury of having a choice. Given to Mother Superior at the ripe age of fifteen months old, all Averick had ever known was the dreadful place she was forced to call home. Averick was sure that her fate was to meet death in the orphanage - either by the hands of the Sisters or her fellow children.

    That is, until, the day of July 31st, 1991.

    Her eleventh birthday.

    Summary

    A series of oneshots following a new arrival to Eorzea's Public Relations and Animal Control Unit: Aza Lynel, renowned for outstanding service on keeping the peace on the Azim Steppes.

    He'd take a good old fist fight over this whole thing. But at the end of the day, they were halfway across the world, as civilians as Avengers get.

At this point, all Steve wanted was for Tony to have joked about the Captain America statue.

    Summary

    Todoroki Natsuo was an upstanding citizen. He goes to school, tries to spend more time with his mother and siblings, and tries to get used to the increased fame surrounding the Todoroki name now that his asshole of a father became No. 1. His biggest offence was probably some illegal hacking at school that one time he missed a deadline for an assignment. He has no business getting involved in the fights between the Pro Heroes and villains, even if the other half of his family were very much involved in them.

    This doesn’t explain how he got himself embroiled with Dabi of the League of Villains.

    Come to me,

    all you who are weary and burdened,

    and I will give you rest.

     

    --Matthew 11:28


    Praimfaya.

    Certain death racing at her in a great wall of blistering heat.

    And then, falling.

    No transition. No in between.

    Just everything. And then nothing.

    Summary

    It’s the summer of Harry’s fourth year, and Harry's holiday isn't turning out to be particularly normal even by wizarding standards. Most young wizards don't include a promotional book tour in their holiday itinerary after all! During his tour Harry meets werewolves, a hag, and other interesting characters, and visits the fascinatingly unique magical districts of Paris, and Libreville in Gabon.

    His snake Storm's company on his many outings are causing Harry's denials of being the Heir of Slytherin to wear thin in many people's eyes.

    Well, at least Harry can hope that the Quidditch World Cup will be relatively uneventful.

    Summary

    Granger?
    I knew that name. Why did I know that name?
    It really DID sound fami-… Oh.
    A mop of bushy, untameable hair. Books, everywhere one looked. The obvious lack of other interests.
    Oh, wonderful.
    I had always thought her a very flat character, with no more use than being the personal library and research assistant of her friends, and what I had seen of her life ‘till now emphasized that conviction.
    Bloody. Hell. I was Hermione fucking Granger.

    Summary

    Hobbits, being the smallest of the free races and less inclined toward violence, knew that they would be at great risk from dark or greedy forces. So, the Hobbit leaders banded together to create a plan. The plan was domestication. Let the other races think them like animals. Dogs, Cats, Birds and others have been cared for by the taller folk with only companionship and love as the exchange. So why not Hobbits as well? After all, what is more comfortable than having food, shelter and protection provided for you?

    For ages the Hobbits have been considered creatures of comfort. They are the most versatile animals in all of Middle Earth. They can cook, sew, clean, be trained to guard livestock or even read small words. They are great judges of character and once one has been chosen as their family they instantly achieve positive social status. Most importantly though, Hobbits are the greatest companions that love unconditionally.

    And Thorin will find one for his nephews if its the last thing he'll do.
