    Summary

    The year is 2019. Itexicon Worldwide stands poised to capture the biotechnology market with its pioneering brain-interface chip.

    There's just one fault in their plan:

    Roland ter Borcht, the project lead, has vanished, and taken with him more than a decade's worth of trade secrets that could expose a worldwide conspiracy with devastating implications.

    Meanwhile, a man by the same name has awoken, cut off from his own time, stranded in a bizarre future America. Guided by an unusual artificial intelligence, accompanied by his world-weary former coworker, he's tasked with transporting a cache of mysterious documents to the only man who can decrypt them.

    The clock's ticking, and things are not as they seem.

    Summary

    “Okay,” says Desmond, not overthinking it, “I’ll accept your spiritual Fedex delivery on behalf of Earth.”

    “His name is Cloud,” she says, like she nearly forgot to mention it. “Cloud Strife.” Desmond gets a fleeting mental image of wild-looking blond hair and a disgruntled expression, which is kind of funny.

    “Hell of a name,” he says.

    “He’s, um…” He means a lot to her, in complicated ways. “He might not… remember stuff… correctly. You’ll keep an eye on him, won’t you?” she asks a little bit desperately.

    “I mean, I don’t really have any guardian angel-type powers in the Grey,” says Desmond. “Otherwise I’d be watching Earth like reality TV all the time, believe me.”

    “Ah,” says Aerith. “About that."

    Summary

    Being trapped in Coldharbour for thousands of years left Nerevar slightly mad, but that wasn't about to stop him from taking an opportunity to escape. Tamriel in the Second Era is a wild romp even if a lot of people are very silly. There's quests to do, things to hit, and most importantly, staying very far away from the ex-wife who murdered him.

    Summary

    "When he rounded the corner, he first thought that Peeves had somehow dumped a giant fish of some sort. But that was unlikely because the fish was sobbing and had impossibly long hair. The last time he’d studied creatures, magical or otherwise, no fish had hair."

    Severus has had a secret for years. And now Hermione does, too.

    Summary

    Peter thinks, for the first time, about what he had told them all he would do, and about what he actually did, and -most importantly- about who he’d brought back with him.

    As soon as his feet felt solid against the floor, he ran.

    The direct sequel to "A Light Across The Ocean," this story begins a fraction of a second after the last one ended, with Kurt and Peter arriving in modern-day New Jersey following the tumultuous events that took place in WandaVision. Kurt struggles to adapt to a world of aliens, deities, temporary genocide, and Netflix without the X-Men. Peter searches desperately for his lost nephews. For convenience and company, they share a house with Agent Jimmy Woo and Dr. Darcy Lewis- to mixed results. Meanwhile experts in science and magic race to figure out how exactly they were able to get here in the first place. (Having read "A Light Across The Ocean" is helpful but probably not entirely necessary.)

    Summary

    Hunter is an outsider. He always has been and as far as he's concerned, he always will be. Even his name is more of a title than an actual name. Abandoned as an infant in China and looking different from anyone else, he has never felt he belongs anywhere and the only person he's ever been able to rely on is himself... Or so he says. From rags to riches he has turned himself into a fearsome and skilled warrior capable of great heroism, or deep darkness. Now a reputable Bounty Hunter living in rural China, he earns a decent living taking on various contracts to take down bandit gangs or even for assassinations, doing his part to keep China safe from threats.

    However, his life is soon to be changed forever, for better or worse. After receiving a message from the Jade Palace itself, he is dragged into possibly playing a part in an ancient prophecy. Hunter is hired by Master Shifu to track down the mystical 'Heir of China' who is rumoured to be able to bring stability during these dark days of uncertainty and strife. Will this just be another job? Or will Hunter find something more valuable than just gold coins on this journey? Will his mysterious past be revealed? And what exactly is the price of true happiness?

    Summary

    Everyday life becomes a thing of the past when one Matou Sakura stumbles upon a diminutive, sword-bearing stranger. The stranger’s circumstances fair little better, as he discovers he’s further from home than he thought, and worse, that where he’s landed is vastly different than from where he left. And his presence continues to affect the lives of those around him. Like the idealistic Emiya Shirou, who aspires to what others may consider a laughable goal, and the enigmatic Tohsaka Rin, who strives for perfection in all things.

    But is the stranger really the worst thing they have to worry about?

    Summary

    After a rough week of school, practice and general adult life, Kirishima finds a secluded section of beach where he can sit with his thoughts and just relax. Except, there is a really persistent splashing. He goes to investigate, only to find a giant orange fish stuck in a fishing net. A giant orange fish with a human torso, arms and head. A mermaid. After cutting it out of the net and watching it swim off, he's left hoping he didn't just dream what he saw. So he returns every night for the next few weeks, but never sees the mermaid again.

    But one night, he stumbles upon a strange boy in a whole in the cliffs, who is very naked and can't talk. But Kirishima swears he's seen him before.

    In other words, this is the story of The Little Mermaid, but make it spicy, with a tiny bit more science. (Rating for one part in the distant future)
