    Summary

     “This next bit is important, so pay attention, would you?” John asks, a scold if there ever was one, as if the movie is starting and he must tell you to stop playing in your seat. “We must trust in the Lord with our whole heart. And not rely on our own insight — you can’t presume to know the reason to understand His meaning.”

     “I don’t know what I’m doing here,” you repeat, fear cracking like melting sea ice in your throat.

     “Yes you do, or in time you will, you needn’t be afraid. Have courage and your purpose will become clear. You must only listen to the Holy Spirit until you are ready to repent and allow Him to work through you. It is natural for you to be scared and confused. I was frightened, too, so let us have courage. Okay? Courage, but don’t— do not run from me again.”

    So, I got reborn into a new world? Great!

    Summary

    Cregan Stark has been watching Westeros from the afterlife for all these years.He noticed both House Stark and House Targaryen made some...questionable decisions as of the last 25 years. He grinned and bared it through all this time but we all get to a breaking point and the former Hand of the King is no different. After seeing "Bran the Broken" be named King and Sansa name herself Queen of a wasteland,neither of which can carry on the House Stark name yet still send their cousin,the only person who could possibly further his line to a life of chasitiy (again) because a grumpy eunuch said so. Well enough is enough. Cregan makes a deal with the Gods,he gets to walk the walls of Winterfell once more,in the body of his youth but what does he have to give up in exchange? Is becoming a kinslayer worth it to make sure your line continues? Well let's find out.
    He is as much of a fan of the Catelyn Stark written ending as the next person and will do all he can to change it but nothing in Westeros is ever that easy.
    Cregan enters the Game of Thrones once more and he has no time for the mummurs farce that is season 8.

    Summary

    Long distance relationships are hard.
    For close to six months Loki and Della have been trying to stay in touch as much as possible, but when an opportunity came along for Della to take on a seemingly simple physical rehabilitation job in England she jumped at the chance to be closer to Loki. And as an added bonus, it was a favour to the Odinsons as the patient is an important member of their company.
    But things start to turn sinister. The patient keeps getting worse, the house is strange and secluded, the family is unsupportive and difficult.
    It's typically nothing Della can't handle, but something else troubles her - Loki started telling her lies.

    Sequel to "Healing Factor" but with a different feel. More plot and mystery - modern AU MCU meets Gosford Park/Agatha Christie.

    Summary

    It was one thing to take care of May, who despite her skills was at least a normal girl. It was quite another to take care of Nezuko, a blood-thirty demon who could attack them at any moment. Scar wasn’t sure why he’d agreed to watch over her, but as far as he was concerned, she was no different than the homunculi and alchemists he fought.

    She was a monster. The second she did something, he’d put her down.

    Summary

    "Do you know why I'm not attacking?" Tajima finds himself in a good mood: of the two of them, he is not defenseless. The Senju heir? He scampers up onto the rock, nothing in his hands. "Is this where you've been hiding?"

    "I—"

    "Don't answer that, boy." Tajima stops moving and everything takes a pause to breathe. "I won't kill you now. I know how it feels for a son to die before their time." A beat.

    Senju Hashirama tilts his head, a curious little bird stuck in a cage with its door wide open.

    He grimaces and it deepens the scowl he's already wearing, snarling. "Which is why I'll kill you in front of your family. Run!"

    (This kid is wandering too close to his clan territory and Tajima will eat his sandal if it doesn't have to do with a certain someone. What is Tajima going to need to do to scare off this one scrawny teen? Is he going to need to spray herbicide on his oldest son?)

    Summary

    Joseph froze, gaze rising to meet Antonio's. He saw the glassy shine of threatening tears in his eyes and it brought some to his own. Crying had long since been normalized for them. That didn't mean it hurt any less.

    "You've grown comfortable with me, dear," whispered Joseph with a smile.
    "And you grin with tears. Have I lost my mind or is this the comfort you speak of?" returned Antonio with a chuckle.
