    Summary

    After giving up his career as a figure skater, Park Sunghoon feels lost in a direction-less existence with little excitement in his life. One evening, he stumbles upon a travelling circus called “The Castle” that seems to be alive with magic. There, he’s drawn in by an ethereal trapeze artist with a hauntingly beautiful voice, and strikes up an unlikely friendship with the members of the group.

    Suddenly, his nights become filled with mystery and mysticism. There’s only one catch; he has to leave before dawn, and when the sun rises on each day, the circus is nowhere to be found.

    Summary

    "He began to both dread and yearn for his dreams—uneasy over what he might see, but still filled with inescapable longing just to be near the two of them."

    After having lost Eliza & Isaac and avenging their deaths, Arthur struggles to cope and keeps his grief intensely private, refraining from even journaling about them. His intense emotions grapple with him until they leak into his dreams, the only outlet he's left for them. Memories first, then regrets, then wishes and lovely imaginings for what could've been.

    *This is the third work in a series. While you can absolutely read it as is, it might make a little more sense if you read "Only Fools Hold onto Hope" and Part 2 of "Disaster Road" first. This works picks up after "Disaster Road" chronologically.*

    **While this work is not graphic, there will be one chapter that is very emotionally intense. I know it might seem like it from the tags, and it does have some fluff, but this is not totally a white-picket-fence story!**

    ***New chapters added regularly! And comments always welcome!***

    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

    Scott Collins was stressed and beyond that- he was having difficulty finding a worthwhile job after graduating from university. Nothing seemed to be working for him. After a while of struggling to make ends meet, he comes across a letter given to him by his grandfather. It had been hidden away deep into his drawer and he'd honestly forgetten about its whereabouts. Inside was a yellowed piece of paper; the deed to the old farm.

    Emmett Flores needed a change of pace. Coming from a well-off family, he had many expectations put upon him. From being forced into the film industry as a child actor in hopes to force the timidness out of him, to achieving excellent grades, he never quite had the chance to be or find himself. He was trapped and despite being an adult, much of his life was still being puppeteered by people who didn't treat him like a genuine person. He desperately wanted a way out.

    Both in a dire need for change, the two friends leave their pasts behind to move to a place called "Pelican Town", the epitome of a quaint and peaceful life. But will they be ready when the past comes back to bite? Only time will tell...

    Summary

    Welcome to the Rogue Universe, place of misfits, mishaps and misfortune. Every day, there's something happening somewhere in this universe we call home. Everybody is the star of their own story, and not every story neatly ties together with some almighty whole.

    A Terran pilot in exile has nothing to do with the civil war being waged on the planet Tull; just as a notorious scoundrel's antics on the corporate world of Bládderun don't tie into the furious crusade of a bitter vigilante. Life is chaos: the chaos of so many different peoples with their stories and their own histories that often times have nothing to do with one another.

    The universe is a big place. That just means that there are a lot of people out there with their own tales to tell. Maybe one day some of those tales will grow into something more, while the rest fade to obscurity as time forgets what history deems unimportant.

    -

    A collection of short stories based on my original setting. Mostly written during lulls of other projects in order to keep the creative juices flowing, but also to do some world building outside of the areas where bigger stories would hog the spotlight.

    Summary

    Capitán Armando Salazar thinks himself very righteous in his pursuit of pirates. We know he despises them because of what they have done to his family. His soul is full of Pride, an evil Pride which has become an obsession. Was he always this way? How could he know the words of simple Franciscans, have been miraculously saved in battle, and then in what he believed was the end of it all, think he had been abandoned by God? He had other reasons to risk his life in an attempt to purify the seas of pirates – the orders of his King, the honor of his Faith, and the rescue of his Love. This is that story.

    A kiss of the sea air. It can linger for days if it has entwined with your hair. Or it can pass leaving no mark at all.
    My first fanfic and all grammatical errors are mine. I’m an artist not a writer but I needed to get this story out of my system. Cliché? Perhaps. But this is Pirates darling! Do acquaint yourself with tags dear reader. Comments welcome!!

    Summary

    When an abrupt transfer from Ilvermorny shows up in the dead of night, Hogwarts students can't help but to be interested in her origin. Unlike some, your time at Hogwarts is only temporary. You've got secrets that must remain hidden and trauma that will take more than just a school year to heal from, so when Draco Malfoy offers to distract you from your troubles back home... how could you say no?

    Pretty easily, had you known he surrounded himself with Death Eaters that loathe the likes of you -- a half-blood.

    Cue Fred Weasley; the friend that you'd been teetering on the edge of casual flirtation and secret affair with since the beginning.

    Putting an ocean between yourself and your problems doesn't solve them, but there are lovely distractions inviting you into every dark corridor of Hogwarts, and that's enough for now.
