    Summary

    Louis comes with a familiarity Harry has never felt with anyone else before. After their fateful meeting, their chemistry became undeniable, and soon after, Harry had felt like he hit the jackpot when it came to finding the person he would spend the rest of his life with.

    But all relationships come with their own unique problems, and Harry soon realizes that their relationship is no different. When their problems go from unordinary to nearly bizarre in nature, he takes it upon himself to find an answer to their troubles. What he stumbles upon are terrifying coincidences between his and Louis’ story, and the ill-fated mythological couple, Orpheus and Eury. But it’s all they are; just coincidences, ones that feel as frighteningly familiar as Louis.

    Except… what if none of this is a coincidence? What if everything Harry has always seen as fiction is true, and myth—or rather, history, is about to repeat itself?

    Summary

    "This song was written for... The one I love. They're gone now, I don't know if I'll ever see them again."

    The voice was all too familiar to Jongdae, who stepped farther and farther into the dimly lit pit. He sat in one of the chairs, placing his gin on the coaster provided, the name of the club printed on.

    ORPHEUS' LYRE.

    Summary

    A loner knight has been roaming the mystical lands of Niart in search of fame and fortune, but a mishap with an enchanted sleeping prince quickly derails her plans. Now she has to escort the prince back to his elusive castle before their magical destinies get irreparably twisted together.

    "Lake smirked. It always worked on Tulip when she overslept, so why not now? She flicked the air a couple of times as preparation, then she leaned down, close to his face, and flicked him in the forehead.

    His waking was nowhere near as peaceful as she imagined it would be. The boy sat up in a rush, knocking her to the ground.

    “Ow,” she muttered under her breath, rubbing her head.

    “WH- WHERE AM I?” he yelled, moving his head frantically back and forth. From her spot on the ground, Lake watched him jump to his feet and then start swaying like he was dizzy. On impulse, Lake rushed to his side fast enough to catch him just as he lost his balance and tumbled into her arms."

    Summary

    She rubs her fingers together, smearing the ink as it bores into her skin. She hurriedly flips to the next page, the next, and the next—

    It has taken over the pages of the book, written shakily in crimson. Across diagonally, straight down. The handwriting grows frantic.

    She flips the page.

    And besides, we lovers fear everything.

    Flip.

    And besides, we lovers fear everything.

    Flip.

    And besides, we lovers fear everything.

    Summary

    Your dreams are the only chance I get to be separate from you, to see you. I... I don't think you remember them in the morning. You don’t seem to remember me at all. You pause, sometimes, but I can never tell what you're thinking or feeling.

    I never realized you had such an imagination, Nonagesimus. Some of them seem like you could have pulled them right out of my comics. (Don’t even try to tell me you haven’t read them, I know you used to go through my stuff. Maybe my soul being tucked in with yours is rubbing off on you too.) Some of them seem like a perfectly regular life in a world that definitely isn’t ours. And others are more familiar, our lives but a little to the left.

    (remember chapters 40-42 of htn? yeah i shoved it in my bag and sprinted into the night. 9 different AUs. one lovely comic. have fun!)

    Summary

    Martin’s been alone in a world that isn’t his own for about a week. It’s been quite a bad fucking week, if he’s honest, considering it started with the man he loves dying in his arms. He can’t think about that too hard, though, because, well, mostly, he can’t actually remember it.

    Edges, sure. The blood. The completely unearthly shriekinghowlingshattering of tape violently rewinding and coming free of whatever was spooling it. Jon gasping for air and the ragged dying whining rattling exhales that followed every gasp. Martin unable to look at him. Unable to move. Unable to pull his hand off the knife.

    It’s fine, though. It doesn’t matter. He doesn’t need the blanks filled in. He doesn’t need to dwell on the fact that he couldn’t even do the love of his life the courtesy of looking him in the eyes as he died. It doesn’t matter, because he’s going to bring Jon back.

    Summary

    BOOK TWO OF DESOLATE PARADISE BUT CAN BE READ AS A STAND ALONE

    In which Tommy is hailed as a god by the people of a hidden island and SBI tries to get him back from the grasps of a sinister masked prophet.

    Tommy woke to the taste of blood, eery darkness, and unbearable pain. Like every bone in his body had shattered into tiny shards and pierced into his skin like steel knives. Like he’d been lit on fire from the inside out.

    Burning raging pain across his skin on his left arm and wing, raking across his skin in tiny, sharp bolts of pain as he desperately tried to move- to do cry out in pain, to roll over, anything.

    “He wakes! His eyelids are fluttering, my lord!” A voice yelled and Tommy winced backwards at the sound.

    There was a sound of a scuffle, and Tommy glimpsed a faint white light growing stronger by the second.

    And then, pressure over his wounded wing. Claws, sinking into his feathers, ripping away at them, scorching him. Fire exploded through his veins, burning, scorching his insides like liquid magma.

    Then agony subsided into the welcoming darkness of unconsciousness.

    Summary

    Dean closed his eyes and prayed, just like he had done every night since he fell asleep on the cold, hard floor of the dungeon. He prayed to whatever entity The Empty was. Dean prayed to it to bring him back to Earth. At the very least, to let Dean trade places with him. At least then, Jack could have his actual father back instead of this sorry excuse of a stand-in.

    You will do it my way.

    AKA: Orpheus and Eurydice in the Underworld, except its Dean and Cas in The Empty
