    Summary

    The man’s clothes looked like a group of beggars had taken pity on him and given him their cast-offs. He looked like he’d been thrown out of a haunted swamp for bringing down the vibe of the swamp. He looked like how a hangover felt. He was not well groomed.

     

    The man looked up and gods, he looked tired. His eyes were dark little pinpricks of exhaustion and bitterness, bloodshot and sunken.

    ‘Gods,’ said the man in a voice that sounded like the gritty dregs of a coffee pot with a damp cigarette end chaser, ‘you look awful.’

    Mic had already been pitied by a Zombie today, he wasn’t going to be told he looked a mess by this human bin fire.

     

     

    In Ankh Morpork, a Banshee meets a man with backwards magic. They both have the same problem - the hourglasses of their lives are faulty, and so Death cannot allow them to die. Death's super polite about it, but still. It's a whole thing. And it's up to them to find out why, and how to fix it.

    Love & loss, a chase across the world, a found family and an inappropriate shirt.

    Summary

    Souls don't come in steady flow in Amestris. It's always too much or too few, and Death doesn't like the workload he gets because of that

    Summary

    There was not a banshee, or anything pretending to be a banshee in the attic. The scariest thing about the house's attic is that it had been designated as her bedroom. Or so she thought.
    --

    When Susan's youngest charge claims that there is a banshee in the attic, she is naturally skeptical. After all, the scariest thing meant to be in the attic in this house is her. However, it soon transpires that some spooks are stubborner than others.

    Summary

    In a life where being smart means not being beaten or starved, Harry Potter turns out to be someone who should never be underestimated - someone who would go to the very edges of morality to preserve his life and to enact a vengeance on those who deserve it.

    This work aims to massively expand the canon as it is given in the books, as well as slightly tweaking amny canon facts/implications. It is, in essence, a complete re-write of the books, starting with the 2 months leading up to Book 1. It's gonna be an extremely slow burn, both in plot as in eventual relationships. All relationships tagged will be those that are central to the actions of certain characters (such as Lucius who would die to protect Narcissa and their son, or Xenophilius who loved his wife so dearly that even after death he makes decisions in her memory).

    Currently, Act I has been concluded - Act II has newly begun :D

    Summary

    A gentle thread that spun itself from the fact that in HOGFATHER, we learned there were Captain Carrot toys for happy children.

    There were almost Sam Vimes toys.

    Thankfully, Sam Vimes did something about that.
    Successive chapters will be elsewhere in the Discworld, and Hogswatch-themed, and with plenty of other characters

    Summary

    Death is unimpressed with Voldemort's quest for immortality, especially when it involves his property, but is determined to be patient nevertheless. Voldemort is unimpressed with Death's interference and is most decidedly not going to be patient. The ensuing confrontation can only be described as ...FUN.

    Summary

    An alternate universe story about what our beloved characters would do under Jack Frost's Santa and what would happen if Scott failed to regain his Santa-ness in the third movie. Needless to say, Jack isn't very good at instilling the Spirit of Christmas, which has magical ripple effects across the board.

    Summary

    When an overactive Rift disgorges a strange alien artifact into the living room of Dr. Gregory House, Torchwood must travel to New Jersey to track it down. But what starts as a routine expedition quickly goes bad when a member of Torchwood comes down with a mysterious illness. Suddenly, aliens are invading the hospital and the teams from Cardiff and Princeton-Plainsboro find themselves in the middle of a war across time and space that will ultimately determine the fate of the universe itself.

    This is the first part of a larger series but it is also a completely self-contained story and so readable on its own.

    Summary

    Ella Rust believes in rules. She has to. Considering that killing comes as naturally to her as breathing, without rules, she'd just kill everyone. She needs the rules to tell her who she can and can’t kill. That same preference for rules is why she has repeatedly failed to graduate her first year at the Assassin's Guild School - Despite the best efforts of the guildmaster. So when she's sent on a seemingly impossible mission, she's damn set on completing it anyway.

    Accompanied by a troll who may and may not be the goddess Anoia, an unusually honest lawyer, and the Disc's only qualified Normal-To-Ella translator, she sets out after the biggest target on (or under) The Disc. But with the help of the mad artificer Kallionates, the ever-deadly girl is going to have to do the one thing she doesn't want to - Make a life-or-death decision, all on her own.

    Set on a world barely too far to see and far too close for comfort - a story of action, adventure, chellonicide, and a dog named Ig.

    Summary

    Me: let’s practice writing drabbles by having Wei Wuxian walk into a bar and meeting random people from different fandoms.
    Evil Voice in my head: but wouldn’t it be so much more fun if the drabbles were all connected and took place in the same universe?
    Me: that is not the purpose of this exercise!
    Evil Voice: you could set it in the Chinese Underworld during the years Wei Wuxian was dead.
    Me: *throws hands up in defeat*


    "Not my jurisdiction," the fourth god in a row said. "Here’s the paperwork to prove it."

    In which Wei Wuxian’s arrival causes a giant wave of nope in the Chinese Underworld and its bureaucratic apparatus decides to ask Discworld’s Death to be his minder instead.

    Fortunately for Wei Wuxian, it had also been no one’s job to inform Death that while Diyu’s eighteen circles of hell included many things, bars were generally not one of them.
