    Summary

    “Okay, it was actually a lot more complicated than—I mean— we’re not actually sure it was a murder, though? Dirk says it looks like it could have been an accident. It’s just… very weird.”

    "Is this part of our case? Is this part of another case? Is this going to stop us from taking the other case?”

    “I… maybe? To any of those questions. But I mean—” Todd huffed a soft laugh on the other end of the line as Farah twisted in her chair, fidgeting with her pen in one hand. “Maybe we’ve finally hit on that ‘something bigger’ you wanted.”

    ----

    Five months after Bergsberg, the Holistic Detective Agency is finding a groove, and Dirk is maybe—just maybe—starting to trust a good thing to last. But a bout of cat-subsidized calm draws to a sharp close when Dirk and Todd find an impossibly-severed head on a rare day off. Unbeknownst to the Agency, the ever-accumulating Rowdy 3, or even the enthusiastic new leadership at Blackwing, a decades-old play for control is poised to ripple across a fractious, fractured, and fractal Universe. Survival will mean holding true to oneself, even in the face of friends and family—whether given, chosen, or fatalistically entwined.

    Summary

    Castiel has spent millennia travelling the universe, helping his fellow angels to restore planets whose native species had brought them to the brink of destruction. He never questioned his mission, accepting that the possession and control of sentient beings was necessary for his success. That was, until his latest mission led him to earth and to two human brothers, who taught him about free will and showed him that not everything was as it seemed. Trapped between two opposite world views and pressured to act fast, Castiel has to make a choice – something he was never meant to do.

    Summary

    An Existential Fairytale


    A woman awakens in a strange and unfamiliar body to find herself in the dangerous realm of Eorzea, with no knowledge of who she is or how she got there. When she meets an oddly-familiar, heroic traveler teaching an obscure, mystical sword art, she joins him in a series of escapades and humorous misadventures to learn his unusual style of magic, help him solve a mystery from his past, and regain her memories.


    Eventual spoilers: RDM & MSQ thru 4.1 but can be read fandom-blind

    Who'll likely enjoy this the most: Anyone who grooved to "The Guardians of the Galaxy Awesome Mix vol. 1", got most of the references in "Ready Player One", and was disappointed by "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies".

    Who'll get the most authentic experience: Anyone who hasn't played FFXIV before &/or has a hazy memory when it comes to movies/pop culture from the past 8 decades. If this is you, just go with it. Hope you're comfortable with recurring déjà vu.

    Summary

    Castiel is a young priest, and as fate would have it, he runs the confessional. He grows to know two young men with time. They grow on him in more than just one way, though. More than what should be appropriate, he realises, as he can't help but feel attracted to them both. Even though every fiber in his being is telling him to stop. It's a sin he's committing, after all...

    “God’s forgiveness is all-encompassing. He doesn’t judge. His love for you is granted, no conditions. You can safely tell me, and him, whatever’s burdening you,” Castiel let him know.

    “Oh, but what I’m about to say is pure blasphemy, Father…” Dean replied.

    Summary

    Some of his vital functions appeared to have been terminated. That and other strange...anomalies had left X6-88 disoriented enough that he was being forced to build a new operating baseline. Somehow these changes had preserved his functionality despite sustaining what should have been a critical degree of damage.

    Perhaps not a malfunction, then, but rather an upgrade--the better to serve their stated goal of achieving revenge against the Brotherhood of Steel. X6-88 thought he could work with that.

     

    (The beginning of X6-88's life as the first synth vampire.)

    Summary

    Dean Winchester is a man who used to believe in foolish things: Wishes. Signs. True mates. He’s over all that now. Personal pain and messed-up biology cured him of those.

    And then in walks Castiel Novak, alpha extraordinaire, who smells like heaven and throws him into hell.

    Cas has always believed in true mates. He knows they exist—his family is full of them. He had his doubts about whether he’d have one himself, due to his biological “gift,” but when he meets Dean Winchester, his omega, it seems that destiny has finally smiled down on him.

    Too bad his true mate hates him.

    Forced by Dean’s medical complications to be together, Dean and Castiel must learn how to reconcile the past and the present, fate and choice, protection and sacrifice…before it’s too late.

    Summary

    Fourth story in this series. Things keep going wrong, the Apocalypse is basically in mid-swing, and after one difficult night, Dean turns to one person he knows he will come through for him when he's torn up inside over all it - Manda Chambers, the female hunter he still loves. But Dean reaching out is going to come at a cost to both of them this time. There will be a price to pay, a choice to make, sacrifices neither saw coming, and a whole lot of heartache for the two hunters that never quite caught a break in being together and still couldn't quite stay apart whether it was possibly out of love or fate as they might find out the reason why they met in what could just be their ultimate end.
