    Summary

    When the family divides after the Deep Roads, one set of twins find themselves. Friends become family and that family... ends up being a community.

    Story of coming together, love, hurt, truths, fighting against a system and customs.

    ~~~~
    Starts off VERY late in Act 1, bordering on Act 2. Very very AU. Time-line/most Canon's gone out the window, like way off into the distance gone.

    I also can't stress enough - NOT canon compliant, at all. Nothing is in the story. You are basically warned. *Smirks*

    Summary

    This is Berk. We sing crude songs, shout simple battle cries, and our distinction between communication and violence is a little on the vague side. Only somehow we've ended up with three languages in my house alone. and real communication gets a whole lot more complicated than that.

     

    As the Riders try to physically recover from the Berserker betrayal which almost cost them so much, Hiccup starts reaching out in search of allies in the battle which he fears is only going to get worse. At this time of year, the only way to reach other islands is going to be on dragonback, and perhaps it is time for Berk to start opening up some of its secrets to the rest of the world.

    But Berk still needs chiefing, his family still needs him, and he realises almost too late that he can't look away from what is happening on Berk itself just because he needs to look to other islands as well.

    Summary

    'We Fett clones were great soldiers. No one could or would ever try to argue with that. We were engineered, conditioned and trained to be versatile and skilled on the field of battle. In war, we knew what we were doing and so we were mature, confident, and serious. Then there was our spare time...'

    Commander Wolffe's hobby was recording stories from the people he encountered during the Clone Wars. Some stories were nostalgia about the strange upbringing of clones on Kamino, some were adventures recounted by soldiers or Jedi, some were just etiological. And since the tone of the war was tragic, Wolffe insisted that all of the stories had to be funny.

    Each chapter is three little stories.

    Summary

    Viktor's Japanese has been slipping since moving back to Russia. With Yuuri's help, he comes up with the perfect plan.

    ----

    “There’s a word for it.” Yuuri fished for the English term. He could handle two languages at a time, but throwing in a third was fogging up his brain. “Immersion. That’s it. You learn better through immersion.”

    Immersion,” Viktor repeated, still frowning. Yuuri nodded and pressed a kiss to his cheek. Viktor’s face relaxed, but he didn’t melt into Yuuri like he usually did. How could Yuuri show him that he was enough, no matter how much Japanese he knew?

    Summary

    When Laxus and Freed visit Ivan Dreyar in prison, Ivan finds out about their relationship and yells the expected slurs. But then he drains Laxus's magic with strange runes, and Freed watches his boyfriend slip into a coma.

    Nobody knows how long Laxus will live. Freed gets help from the one person who may help--someone Laxus hates. Someone who's tried to kill Freed before.

    Meanwhile, Laxus wakes up but rumors have spread that he's defenseless and old enemies surface. An exhausted Freed keeps saving him, and Laxus hates it. It would all go away if Laxus just got his magic back. But there are runes written on his lacrima itself, activated now by who Laxus is and whom he loves. Sacrificing Freed may be the only way to regain his power.
