    Summary

    Irritated by the public disruption of peace due to a stupidly dramatic break-up, cynic Lee Minho just wants the pathetic loser at the window table of his favourite café to shut up and stop crying. The pathetic loser in question is Han Jisung who proceeds to tell Minho he loves him in the very first few minutes of meeting him. Charming, isn't it? (Note the sarcasm.)

    Minho isn't entirely sure why but he allows Jisung into his life. From then on, everything becomes a spiral for Minho to question his life choices. But maybe he finds more than questions along the way.

    Summary

    Power, Corruption & Lies: "Post hoc, ergo propter hoc". The priori; with the bad moon rising at the horizon, beyond the heavy and mysterious sea of Mist, no blood is thicker than the ink belonging to a collection of stories, tails, vignettes, thoughts, reckonings, short poems of a world who revolves around the tip of the spear, gray alike the clouds that lightened and obscured of their own history.

    Laughing Stock: "If faith is what driven us together in search of ourselves, then we must try to do it on a leap". The posteriori; from the idyll to the youth to the decay of substance, life goes on and on in this real life fantasy, alike the path taken by the Crescent and her ancestors, who once shared of same blood ingrained on that red coat. While her youth dreams are kept alive, only the fear, the failure and the spear can block the way to achieve a purpose in a life under the rain.

    Summary

    Short volumes about two god-like hand brothers and the many fighters, people, creatures, and other beings they meet and their adventures. Oh, and the letters that are given to those who are invited to compete in the Smash Tournaments. (The degree of the Hands' importance varies between volumes, but they're more-or-less constants in each of them.)

    Please consider the following:

    I deleted the volume end notes and added an appendix for notes, references, and headcanons that will be updated as the volumes come along.
    I also changed Green's name to Leaf to better reflect the canon name of the female protagonist of FireRed and LeafGreen.

    Thank you for considering the following.

    Summary

    Life always had a way to fuck things up for MC. After a recent falling out with...everything that had meaning in their life, MC had decided that the best course of action would be finding peace. Writing letters to people they loved, and apologizing for those they would inconvenience, MC bids everything they had ever known farewell. They stared out the window, gazing at the beautiful moon, wishing they could be just as free as her, even though she wasn't as free. Even just a little freedom would be nice...

    The chair falls, resounding a loud thud that accompanied the creaking and gasping. The moon was still as beautiful as darkness and death embraced MC.

    Summary

    A one shot dialogue piece, and my first entry in the now ongoing September prompt list for FFXIVWrites2021, as run by Moen Moen on Tumblr and Twitter. This piece is for Day One Prompt: Foster.

    Post 5.55 spoilers, no sexual themes, some adult themes, light romance. Brief DRK 50 spoilers reference.

    I wrote something that essentially reads as my Warrior of Light relating to a certain someone their thoughts, regarding questions others ask her fairly regularly about what her life is like as the Warrior of Light, and how she views being a hero. A one sided dialogue, revealing her perspective on this way of life that has consumed her existence for years, and how it truly makes her feel. As well as how she sees it influencing others, both in her answers to their questions, and the answers she holds back from giving.

    Summary

    Jessica Jones, PI.

    A Netflix MCU fic, this occurs in a nebulous post Season 3 world, either pre-Snap or in a timeline where it doesn't happen. Jessica stayed in NYC and ended up splitting the biz with Malcolm properly.

    I needed a very specific setting in a specific locale for the plot so I made it up; the location of the case incident is not real.

    Prompt: curtain fic/team bonding/slice of life

    With thanks to my beta, who always makes my work better.

    Summary

    "When I bring myself to look into her eyes — after a debate that lasted hours in my head, but seconds in real time — I can see the deadness. I expected to see tears somehow, some wet glistening. It was more like she was laughing. At me? The world? Who knows?

    Crow’s feet crease around her eyes when she cracks that Cheshire smile I love. It is scary now, though. There is malice in it, then it melts away into a vague sorrow.

    'That’s the thing about people. They just don’t know what to do with themselves.' "

    The world gets to everyone, eventually - but sometimes all it takes is one good person to make it better. A reflection on how love goes both ways, even when it feels like it might not.
