    Summary

    Once upon a time long ago, a Midgardian village was being menaced by a ravenous, blood-hungry troll. The terrified people beseeched the gods for help. Odin Allfather heard their cries and sent his young but mighty son Thor to exterminate the creature.

    He didn’t expect him to fall in love with the damned thing.

    Summary

    I am traveling across Spain right now. Since I love folklore and local legends, I am asking around in the villages I visit for stories about the place, and Hetalizing them. Some are AU, some are canonverse. Most are Spamano versions of whatever I am told. Independent oneshots I can update daily. Bad side: In the road there are no betas or spelling-checker, and English isn´t my first language, so mistakes are going to happen. Take it for the antropologic value.

    Summary

    Ryan Ross could see the future. He could also see the past and present, but people never seemed to care about that part.

    As the one and only Oracle, Ryan Ross has a lot on his plate. He has to deal with frantic rock stars, violent nightmares, visions that rip him out of his ordinary life, and on top of all that, homework.
    But when one day at school Ryan is confronted with a horrible vision of the school priest getting murdered, Ryan is thrown from prophesying adventures from the sidelines to the middle of the action. And this all is made even more complicated by the sudden appearance of a boy he has been dreaming about for nearly half his life. Ryan never saw himself as a hero. But with the help of the new boy with the dorky haircut and impossible powers, anything can happen.

    (Set in the same universe as The High Way to Hell, but can be read separately.)

    Summary

    After the October Revolution of 1917, the one of the largest empires the world has ever known is thrown into a devastating civil war. Coming on the heels of the three year bloodbath that was World War I, it seems the Motherland will never know peace.

    Rey is a young Bashkir woman, an orphan who grew up a scavenger in the arid wastes of Turkestan, who has no use and less love for a tsardom that she believes has failed everyone like her. Kylo Ren is the formidable leader of the feared Knights of Ren, a paramilitary group influenced by strange foreign mysticism of the Far East, and the Knights have allied themselves with the White Army, seeking the return of the Russian Empire.

    The summer of 1918 will be one that changes everything. Again.

    Based on art by LynxCancer (see notes) depicting Rey as a Bolshevik and Kylo as a White Army officer.

    Summary

    “And I’m not a vandal,” the man shoots back. “My name’s Dean. And I think there’s been a misunderstanding—”
    “No,” Castiel hisses. “I have watched you. I have seen you creep around with your shovel and your gun and I have seen you trying to desecrate the graves, my graves, so do not talk to me about a misunderstanding—”
    Dean holds his hands up and shakes his head. “Shit, man, I swear I’m not trying to—”
    Castiel has had enough, though, so he flicks his wrist and pushes Dean over one of the tombstones and down to the ground. Dean falls with a grunt and tries to stand up quickly, but Castiel keeps him pinned to the ground with a raise of his eyebrow.
    “I am the guardian of this cemetery,” he states when he stops and looks down on the struggling man. “I will not be made a fool of, especially not by someone like you.”
