    Ginny Weasley has the most powerful Voice in the British Isles. She can sing a field to full harvest, scream a storm into being and croon a cure for fatal diseases. What she can't do is sing life back into her husband's dead body. She needs Harry back, but she's not powerful enough to return his soul to the mortal realm. Or is she?

    Tom Riddle achieved his goal: immortality. However, none of his research warned him he’d have to take over as Ruler of the Otherworld. Now a God with even more power and a long list of duties to go with it, Tom needs something he never expected: a consort.

    Almost a millennium later, Tom discovers a boy who shares his gift. He decides to train this new parselmouth, and in the time they spend together, Tom recognizes everything he had wished for in a consort in this boy. But it'll be years before Tom would want more than companionship from him. Needing to return to the Otherworld after his time away, Tom descends and leaves Harry to find his own path, for now, but he’ll be back soon. Or will he?

    Harry Potter is tired of leaving and being left. He's always losing someone precious to him, one way or the other. Now that he's dead it's no different.

    Or is it?

    Emmaline Wheaton's life is not going according to plan -- that's because it has no plan.

Emmaline could care less and is planning on coasting through her last two years of high school, until she meets August Davidson, charismatic star of the football team and ladies man of Curling Blue High. Soon, she's inducted into the school's jazz band and meets more friends: fiery lesbian Amber, who wears Converse with her little black dresses; J.P., August's best friend and trusty farmboy; and Jaewon, the loner who spends his time on the roof playing a recorder.

    Alone, they are students at Curling Blue High. Together, they become Walking on Starlight, Curling Blue's student rock band. And they're about to take the city by storm.

    Summary

    Sidious sends out Order 66 and at the hands of the Clones, General Obi-Wan Kenobi dies.

    The death of the galactically famous general is all over the Holonet, but Maul is a firm believer in the 'No Body; No Death' rule when it comes to Jedi. He assumes shoddy reporting. That is, until, Kenobi's death is confirmed.

    Maul, being who he is, goes apoplectic with rage because he wanted THE ONE THING, to kill the Jedi who ruined his life, and even that Sidious took away. Join Maul in his quest as he dedicates himself to becoming a thorn in Sidious' side before he swiftly makes that someone else's problem and then ditches the galaxy to its own power struggles so he can bring Kenobi back to life just so he can kill the man himself. As you do.

    It's angry. It's chaotic. It's Maul.

    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

    “Lan, heed this old king. You may enter the gates of Diyu and witness for yourself the Ten Courts of Hell. What you see will forever taint your mind and spirit, as for the wish you so beg of me...you may try. I will give you no map, nor guide to find him, and if, by chance you do, you may lead him back to the mortal realm. On one condition”
    Wangjis heart was rapid, he knew the journey would be near impossible, and that he would face the consequences, however, the coward in him feared for himself.

    Imagine if James and the Hamiltons got their chance, ever so briefly, to follow their passions, their plans. There is no argument, no politics, no ferrying people away in the dead of night. Instead, as they sail towards hope, the pardons still in hand, the Navy brutally take Thomas' life under bright daylight, in the middle of a vast ocean, and dump his body overboard.

     

    Thomas is dead.

    They were so close, they were on their way to Nassau, young and naïve and full of hope and determination, and then England said no, and ripped Thomas straight from James' hands.

    But James doesn't do no. He is determined, he will undo this, he will dive down into the Underworld itself if he must to get Thomas back. Except nothing is ever as easy as that, and James finds himself faced with choices beyond anything he could have ever imagined possible. For he is not the first to try convincing the Guardian of the Dead to release a lover, and he won't be the last. And the harder he tries, the more entangled he finds himself in the deep...
