    Summary

    Yara is a Syrian refugee, and life doesn't get much shittier than that, does it? Unless you're a Syrian refugee who suddenly finds herself in a place where no one understands what she's saying, there is no wi-fi, and how did she even get there? Through all the gloom the stars are twinkling, just like the eyes of the people around her.

    A good fic if you like elves, language barriers, and OC's who break the mould. Not as depressing as the tags seem. Actually quite uplifting. Not a mary-sue, and not a tenth-walker, but the fellowship will come into play. Bear with me :)

    EDIT: So, I've noticed this is definitely going to end up being, well, long. It's turning out to be a story just as much about finding your place in the world as it is about finding adventure in Middle-Earth. I hope you enjoy it, anyway, and if you don't, feel free to leave constructive criticism :)

    I hope the language setup works for you. Please critique my Quenya and Sindarin. I have no clue about Swedish or Arabic, sooo... not even attempting those.

    If you at any point decide to stop reading this story, I would be very thankful if you could leave a comment telling me what made you lose interest. I want to improve!

    Summary

    "Serendipity. Look for something, find something else, and realize that what you've found is more suited to your needs than what you thought you were looking for." - Lawrence Block

    Based on the visual novel Ikemen Vampire, this is my take on MC and her interactions with our favorite boys. She's tough, smart, and thrives in her crazy and dangerous lifestyle. But, she's thrown into a world of supernatural and suddenly she's not the smartest or toughest in the room. While she's anxious to get back to her own time, this is also a great opportunity to slow down, something she hasn't done in many years.

    Translations by Google.

    And we're going to expect all the characters know English because that makes my life easier.

    Summary

    The logical side is gibbering about how she was just finishing up insurance paperwork and ignoring her family’s text messages, but the emotional side is twelve ambulance sirens in a wind tunnel.

    No surprise which one she ends up listening to more.

    In which a modern day pyromaniac with chronic pain crash lands into a game she doesn't even really like anymore, and spends so much time trying to science lyrium she forgets to pretend not to be suspicious. It's ok though, not as if anyone can understand her anyways, since she's seemingly lost all understanding of language.

    Summary

    What is he afraid of? A little bit of gossip? He's dealt with that his whole life anyways. It's not like they're going to say, "Oh, that Martin Blackwood, he's probably got an eldritch abomination in his attic, you know."

    Except he does! That's exactly it. But he can't not invite them in, right?

    Summary

    "No!” Lup says, vehemently, shaking her head for emphasis. "No doctors."

    Barry's paralysed. This is such a shitty trope, some part of his brain is shouting at him. They always say that in movies just before the hapless sidekick has to sew up the protagonist. He can’t sew at the best of times, let alone when there’s blood everywhere!

    "Why not?"

    She bites her lip worriedly, not meeting his gaze.

     

    Lup and Taako crash land outside the tiny village of Faerun. Lup's lucky enough to find somewhere to recuperate, but she soon discovers that she's feeling something she never expected for the man taking care of her. Taako's lost, alone, and scared, but he knows one thing - he'll raze this planet to the ground to find Lup.

    Summary

    Not that she was feeling rattled; no, it was more the unreality of what was happening: here she was, millions of miles from home, in ritual combat with an alien who she was finding increasingly fascinating—and okay, kind of hot.
