    Summary

    I always felt that all our heroes have had more tragic pasts and horrible things that have happened to them than what the game and in-game conversations have told us. The one big thing lacking in Vermintide 2 was character progression, but thankfully the Castle Drachenfels trilogy and the daemon whispers in particular offered some *very* interesting additional insight into the minds and souls of Ubersreik Five. This story was my interpretation on the personality of one Sienna Fuegonasus, and what causes her singular drive to burn things to a cinder.

    Summary

    Glasbo Drokk is not an interesting man. One of teeming billions in a galaxy of only war, he fills his days with monotonous labour, humble pleasures and faith in his God-Emperor. He's not getting any younger, just poorer, sicker and closer to being tossed into the sump hole with the morning refuse and the mutants. In his whitewashed world of midhive almost-luxury in the neighbourhood of Breckside he is bored out of his blessedly ignorant mind. So before he meets his master on Terra, maybe he can live a little. What harm could it do, really?

    Summary

    “Seeing values beyond what is possible. ‘Tis the nature of a hero. It kills him, of course, ultimately. Remember that, my Love, heroes don’t get anything but dead… in life, the monsters always win.”

    Soren Amell had never intended to be a hero. Nor a mage. And definitely not a Grey Warden. He was just another piece of street rat trash raised in the gutters of Kirkwall and, frankly, perfectly content to stay there. After all, these days the monsters were just in his head...

    Summary

    Flying over a moonlit plain one night, a young military-trained pegasus named Sora finds herself tangling with a grounded adversary—one who, admittedly, is a little bit on the deranged side of the fence. Having attracted strange cloaked ponies that seemingly want said adversary dead, Sora decides to act and takes her foe to be detained for her crimes—taking into account her worse-for-wear state.

    Yet with disapproval from a whole army's worth of ponies in uniform, especially those few in a high position of power who order her around, Sora stubbornly clings to her decision. This is something that she does know could spark either an event as harmless as a dischargement... or lead to less than favorable consequences—though such things she has taken as seriously as she would her duty to said lofty few. Whatever the result, she'll have to make do, as will her adversary and anypony else who decides to get involved with them.

    But there is a wise saying of ages long lost, one Sora follows to the letter—it is short, simple, and much to her chagrin, the particular predicament she's wound up in. As a wise soul once said, all those countless ages ago: "keep your friends close, and your enemies closer."

    Summary

    When a barrier between two worlds breaks, it provides an ample opportunity for two separated cultures to interact for the first time in ages. However, a band of ponies and gryphons on one of these two worlds come upon a spoken legend that foretells the end times that follow the barrier's destruction—whispers of aggravatingly vague omens to come. In addition to this, said group find six mares and a small drake from the sister world, each as perplexed as ever as to why the barrier broke.

    Yet none know how fast the clock ticks, nor of the forces at work in the shadows. Should they fail to stop whoever or whatever is behind the mess, a fated tragedy will strike—with all being plunged into their final, and darkest hour. But how will the differing groups stop the impending calamity, when they have but one meager piece of a proverbial puzzle, and such vast worldviews that are radical enough to spark fights between them?

    Summary

    Izuku must learn his place in a broken and cruel world. He must learn the cost of being a hero. He must learn the cost of changing the world to his own image. In a world divided by factions vying for control, oppressive governments, and sympathetic villains, Izuku must decide his place amongst the chess pieces. He'll have to decide what to make of the broken dreams and shattered faith of an indifferent world. He'll need the power to rise above the mire and muck of despair.

    Thankfully, he was never quirkless.

    Sometimes quirks hide until they are triggered. Izuku tasted death and found it lacking, every flavour bitter and lacking spice. In the moments between death and life, he gazed into the howling abyss and it followed him home. Everything he thought he knew about the world is a lie. There are monsters lurking in the dark below, always waiting and always watching.

    They wait patiently, waiting for one to sit upon a throne of crystal madness and eternal suffering. They have waited for aeons and will wait until the end of eternity.

    They wait for Izuku Midoriya.

    There were small differences, but in the grand scheme of things, his and Griffith's fates were intertwined like the strands of the rope his parents were hung from.
