    Summary

    There are no more Napoleons.

    That's what Jay Waringcrane thinks. No one person can change the world—certainly not him, a college dropout from suburban Cleveland. Bitter, cynical, and disillusioned, Jay wants only one thing: to go to a different world, a world where he is the protagonist.

    Jay gets his opportunity when he meets a devil granting wishes in exchange for souls. One contract later and he's transported to Whitecrosse, a fantastic realm of knights, fairies, and monsters. Whitecrosse teeters on the brink of calamity; it's desperate for a hero, any hero, to shape its destiny. It's exactly what Jay asked for.

    But nothing's so simple. The real world, the world Jay left behind, isn't keen on letting someone escape its ironclad logical order. And the embodiment of that order, Jay's uptight and meticulous sister Shannon, will do whatever it takes to drag Jay back home—even if she has to follow him to the gates of Hell.

    Summary

    "Hubert," she said softly. "You once told me that before your father, no Vestra has ever betrayed House Hresvelg, right?"

    Hubert couldn't even say yes. But he did.

    "Well, you have always been a realistic student, so tell me this, Hubert. For more than a thousand years, there is not a single member of a family that has betrayed the liege lord they serve: does that sound realistic to you?"

    Hubert opened his mouth. "I... but..."

    "The answer is simple," said Byleth. "There is no House Vestra, and there never has been. There is only, ever, your father."

    Summary

    After long exile and lonely wandering, Maglor is given a second chance to fulfill the Oath of the House of Fëanor. But though the Silmarils are brought once more within reach, the Doom of the Noldor remains in effect, and Maglor’s road turns darker and more perilous than he could ever have feared. Events are set in motion that cannot be undone and the fate of all of Arda is cast into jeopardy.

    This tale takes place in the Third Age roughly during the events of The Hobbit, but is slotted into the gaps between stories.

    Summary

    During a particularly harsh Los Angeles heatwave, John Constantine finds himself sent on a case which will ultimately lead to his grisly and unexplained demise.

    Finding the body in the bathroom of the apartment we share, and at a loss over what has happened, I find myself on the edge of intentionally joining my lost lover until a man in a white suit steps in with another choice.

    Knowing that John Constantine's love for me was what partially kept him out of his grips, Lucifer suggests taking me to a reality where the exorcist and I never met and fell in love. I have three days to make John Constantine fall in love with me for a second, or rather, first time. If I do, he will make it so Constantine is alive once more and we return to the true reality.

    However, if I fail, Lucifer gets the soul that he has wanted for a very long time.

    My own.

    Summary

    Nobody escapes Death- not even Tom Marvolo Riddle.

    Albus Dumbledore was not someone Death could trust. Wizards seldom are.
    Except for Morrigan Gray. Morrigan Gray had the spirit of a collector merged to hers and was now in England, ready to hunt down Voldemort and push him to the depths of oblivion.
    and for that she needed the help of a wizard named Lucius Malfoy, but what to do when he is revealed to be a follower of her enemy?
    Offer him a better, much better deal.

    Summary

    “It’s a simple game, young man. You press this button, and you’ll get $100 deposited directly to your bank account. But each time you press this button, someone you know will have the longest, strongest, most powerful sexual climax of their life."

    I misheard her. I must have, right? Did she just say every time I press the button, I get a hundred bucks, but one of my friends cums?

    ...how is that a catch?

    Summary

    You've always been warned - all magic comes with a price. For so much of your life, you've outright ignored it - after all, it didn't matter how many rings of mushrooms you walked through or how many wishes you'd made on a falling star, nothing ever happened. You'd been chasing magic for so long, and you'd never seen the slightest hint of it.

    It's the exact reason that you weren't particularly concerned when a poofy-haired stranger in a ridiculous cape strikes up a conversation with you in the parking lot of a bar as you're waiting for an Uber home. It's also the reason that when he makes you an absolutely insane offer, you don't even hesitate. After all, you reason, only a drunken idiot would go around unironically calling himself the 'Goblin King', and only another equally drunk idiot would play along.

    Sometimes, you don't need to go looking for trouble. Sometimes, trouble finds you.

    **Ya'll won't be seeing smut til at least past chapter 15. Sorry**

    Summary

    “Enter the forest where the trees throw the deepest shadows, far out behind the hills.
    The path will lead you where you have to go.“

    “And then?“ Rose asked.

    “Then they will find you.“ Martha‘s pale blue eyes darted around nervously, anxious someone might catch them talking about the Bright Ones.

    “And you sure hope it is one of the kinder ones and not him.“


    Only a foolish girl would go into the Dark Forest.

    Only a very foolish girl would make a bargain with its Lord.

    But Rose has no choice.
    Not if she wants to save her sister from a cruel fate.

    And if she has to deal with a cunning little fox to do so, she will.

    This peasant girl will not go down without a fight and the notorious Fox Lord might have finally met his match.

    Summary

    Jack knew who his man was as soon as he entered the diner. Sitting in a corner by himself, a closed leather-bound book in front of him and an expression on his face as he looked outside the window that Jack could only describe as thoughtful but also somehow tired, the man didn't turn to look at him even as Jack sat in front of him.
    "I want you to heal someone for me."
