    Summary

    Set in Whitechapel, circa 1888. Korra and Bolin are browbeaten detectives working in London's H-division.

    Summary

    Harry looked at the blond kid who had just saved his life and wondered. "How the hell did I get here? Where ever here is... and why do I suddenly owe this innocent looking kid a life debt? Is that a walking carpet? And why are they so insistent on not letting those guys in uniform get a good look at Luke? Oh, hell! My magic has done something strange again!"

    Summary

    Seokjin knew better than to randomly give people a ride but there was something in him that stirred when he saw this man. Maybe it was his loneliness, or it was the way this man looked at him, his smile soft and warm. He couldn't explain it, but Seokjin was instantly drawn to him.

    Instead of forcing himself to churn out an answer, he gestured to the empty passenger seat beside him.

    "Hurry up and Get in."

    Seokjin, a lost boy, picks up 6 other lost boys and they realise that maybe together, they aren't so lost after all.

    Summary

    "For someone who lived in Dema all her life, you're pretty good at running."

    "It's probably just about the only thing I'm good at."

    Running and lying, she reminded herself.
    Both of things had gotten her to this point in her life, and she didn't know whether or not it was a good or a bad thing. Well, she supposed to herself, being free of Dema and of the Bishops was a good thing, but having to lie to those she was growing close with, well... That was probably the bad thing.

    Summary

    None of this made any sense! The pain in his chest was becoming a very urgent, very much physical burn that rapidly became all Stiles could focus on. His bond. His mating bond. Oh god.

    “I…” His voice felt like it had been stolen by a dementor it was so quiet. “I think I need to see the nurse now.”

    Summary

    Querido Deku,
    Mi terapeuta me dijo que debería escribirte cartas. Es parte de alguna mierda curativa, pero… bueno, no sé. Tal vez estés aburrido, donde sea que terminaste.
    …Mierda, esto es tan cursi.

    Summary

    Noctis wakes up again, 16 and untempered. His father is still alive, and somewhere out there in the wider world, Ardyn Izunia is opening his own eyes again.

    He expects Ardyn to hunt him down, demand answers that he doesn’t have. Answers the Astrals won’t give him - they seem content to remain silent to him now, scorning him as they scorn Ardyn.

    (Perhaps in the end he wept a little too much for the man he killed, a man that on some level, he came to rely on as much as the others around him. A man that shaped him with violence and ill-will, that taught him his boundaries and just how far he could push them. Perhaps his world grew a little too grey with him gone, and the last fragments of will he had were swept away, his fate solidified.)

    Instead, Ardyn comes to him dressed in the crimson of an altered Glaive uniform, and bends knee.

    (If he won’t allowed to die as Noctis’ enemy, he’ll die as his most stalwart defender instead, a Shield crafted from the bones of a Healer-King, broken and forged anew.)

But he knows Credence Barebone had mattered far too much to Percival, and if saving this boy he's never met can be the thing that will keep him sane... Theseus isn't going to let him slip through the cracks again.

    Summary

    In a world of shattered glass and broken dreams, some mechs have it harder than others- and it seems like Whirl has drawn the short end of the stick.

    What follows are the adventures of a therapist thoroughly out of his depth, and one of the most traumatized mechs he has ever known, his new patient, Rung. Together, the two of them navigate through the rough waters of friendship, made all the more difficult when one of them can't speak and the other doesn't know what to say. From painful separations and evil Autobots to dangerous journeys and odd travel companions, the two begin to heal as they learn the meaning of having faith in others.

    Which Whirl thinks is a bit too sentimental for his tastes, but who cares about what he thinks, anyway?

    Summary

    Being a hero is about averting tragedies and saving the people you can- but sometimes that’s just not good enough. The USJ Massacre resulted in too many body bags with too few answers, sending shockwaves that threatened to topple the entirety of hero society. At the center of the storm, UA homeroom teacher Eraserhead is given an unexpected opportunity to set things right. Sent back in time by a former student’s powerful quirk, teenager and aspiring hero Aizawa Shouta must dramatically alter the timeline to avert a tragic future.

    Reliving the last 15 years of his life is a price he’s willing to pay.

    (Inspired by and kind of a crossover with the anime Erased/boku dake ga inai machi)

    Summary

    Shouta Aizawa is an underground pro hero. Taking a mission to go undercover in Japan’s biggest mafia was one of the worst things he could’ve done. Then he learned someone he thought was his biggest threat was anything but. Discovering what bound a big-hearted child to a life of evil was what turned this job as a mole into a rescue mission.

A well-known assassin for Japan’s biggest mafia. Saddled with two and a half Quirks of his very own, and a long list of sins on his back, he knows he’d never be someone worth being called a hero.

    Then someone tells him he's worth something and it all falls apart.
