    Summary

    Hypothesis: Given the ambiguous nature of bending genetics, the cultural significance of the moniker “nomad”, and the prodigious mobility of airbending, it is highly improbable for the Fire Nation to successfully render an entire gene pool extinct. Therefore, the series title is false, and there is at least one other airbender.

    This study will focus on one such singularity known as Ty Lee.

    Summary

    Class 1-A was having a relatively normal day compared to most. So, of course something had to go and ruin it. They were definitely not expecting for four other Midoriyas to show up in their living room. Because of course they do.
    ----
    The entity known as Clouds has become restless, but she has devised a plan. And she was not afraid of the repercussions.
    ----
    One of the Midoriyas knew that he wasn't the right one, that there was only supposed to be one of him. And it wasn't any of the ones that had fallen through the portal with him. He needed to fix this.

    Summary

    Emboldened by the fact that Sarah is expecting their second child (and by the fact that he doesn't want to miss another pregnancy), Andrew demands that the Royal Navy allow her and their children to accompany him to his assignments. He doesn't see what the difference is between them and his parents being stationed in Malta. When the Navy declares that it's a security risk, he chooses his family over his career. Bad enough that he got her pregnant again with a nine month old, she can't be expected to do that alone.

    Edward has just broken up with his longterm girlfriend when he runs into Sophie Rhys-Jones at a tennis tournament. He insists that they're just friends, but it quickly becomes something more.

    Though Charles and Diana insist that they have a happy marriage, cracks are beginning to show among the Waleses union, especially when the press begins to compare them to that of the Yorks. Diana herself is jealous of the love and attention Sarah gets from Andrew. Charles thinks she should be grateful for what she has. She married the crown, didn't she? Why does she suddenly think she needs to be loved?

    Summary

    The clear blue skies, the briny sea, the free life of a pirate... What isn't there to love about One Piece? Okay, sure, there's a genocidal and super restrictive World Government. And sure, there's all kinds of dangerous Devil Fruit users crawling around the globe, and the baseline durability of the worlds' citizenry is way more than a normal human's. All I know is that I'm stoked as hell to be here! Even if I have to deal with BROB. [One Piece Self-Insert]

    Summary

    A butterfly’s wings pushed the cloud ever so slightly, and five seconds after Akira walked out from under the awning, thanks to the current lack of rain, Kamoshida called out to Ann. Ryuji sulked behind a thin, messy haired teen he didn’t bother talking to.
    It doesn’t take that long to make a difference.
    Slightly AU + some headcanons my bad.

    Summary

    You wake up slowly. Some distant spices and years-old dust dance their way past as you roll over, pointedly ignoring the light streaming from the grimy window.
    A window that you swear wasn’t there when you went to sleep.
    It's April 10th, you're living in a cafe, and none of this is right. Oh, and you remember how this year is supposed to go, and you're determined to fix what went wrong, damn the consequences.
    It'd be nice if you knew a damn thing about yourself, or the person you definitely weren't when you fell asleep. Oh well. It'll be fine.

    Spoilers abound. Be warned.

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian died.

    Wei Wuxian died, twice over.

    Once, when his golden core was gifted to his dear Shidi. Twice, when he sacrificed himself to destroy the Stygian Tiger Seal.

    And unfortunately, death is not a kind thing, not to a human mind already wrought with pain and grief and regrets.

    So when Wei Wuxian opened his eyes, in a body made by magic and shadows and the sacrifice of one Mo Xuanyu, it was understandable, then, that he returned somewhat… other.

    And somehow, this makes all the difference.
