    Summary

    “And? What’s your name?”

    “Fedyor.” There’s nothing else for it. “Fedyor Mikhailovich.”

    “Ivan,” the other man responds curtly, just when Fedyor thinks he won’t. “Ivanovich. Fine. Go upstairs and get cleaned up, you can stay the night. In the morning, I’ll call someone to take you back to the mainland. You’re a long way from Moscow.”

    “You don’t need to,” Fedyor says, a little too quickly. “I mean – I’m on a leave of absence, traveling around out here for a while. They’re not expecting me back any time soon.”

    Summary

    In the long list of rules that Dream gave him, there were four that stuck out as the most important. Four rules that he could never break.

    Stick close to the island when swimming. Always be back before seven. Never complain or hesitate to give Dream his pelt. And never, ever interact with humans.

    Tommy didn’t break any of those rules often, and if he did it was a one time thing, a mistake. But this wasn’t a mistake. This was a very deliberate, very stupid move on his part and Dream would kill him if he knew what Tommy was doing. Fifteen years Tommy had lived here, and never once had he intentionally broken one of Dream’s rules. Until now.

    He swims closer to the three humans.
    .
    Tommy's a selkie living isolated on an island with Dream as his caretaker. Wilbur, Techno, and Phil are the new lighthouse keepers next door. Surely there's no way for this to go wrong.

    Summary

    It's lonely work, being a lighthouse keeper, but Dick's okay with that. It's a decent job, honest work, important. And he loves the sea, always has. He's satisfied with his simple, lonely life - until he meets someone unexpected, someone he can't stop thinking about, someone who shouldn't exist.

    Soon, there's very little more important to him than the comfort and safety of Miles Edgeworth. But with the cold of winter coming on fast and the secrets of Miles's past catching up, will they find a safe harbor in time? Or will Miles disappear from Dick's life like he'd never existed in the first place?

    Summary

    Everything Izuku's done since his world fell to ruins has hurt the people he cares about.

    It's time for him to make amends.

    Every lost soul is a step to redemption, even if it feels like his own is beyond salvation.

    Finally the lantern is lit, and up close its less like a beacon of hope and more like a dying sun.

    He shields his eyes from the blinding light, and climbs down into the lighthouse to watch over his strange, isolated share of the ocean.

    And if he sees the handprint on the foggy glass, fingers too long to be his own, then he has other things on his mind.

    ~

    Izuku had hoped that becoming keeper would be a beginning of something for him.

    The lighthouse has stood ruined over his childhood in a picturesque seaside town for as long as he can remember.

    Now it's repaired he can spend his days there reading in the sunsets and his nights bringing home lost ships, just him and the sound of the ocean.

    And one arrestingly gorgeous lost soul.

    Summary

    "The sea was churning, waves leaping up from the surface of the ocean to meet the pouring rain. Gino Gambino kicked against the chill water, trying desperately to keep his head above the waves. The warmth was leached out of his bones; bitter salt burned his eyes and filled his mouth. Above him, there was no sign of the airship that he had fallen from, only dark, looming clouds."

    After a storm leaves Gino Gambino and Marius stranded on a tiny island, they'll lave to learn about each other, and themselves, to survive.

    Summary

    Lieutenant Commander Data escapes from the Enterprise for some rest and reflection and to come to terms with his emotion chip in his own way. Set between Generations and First Contact.
    I have bent canon a little bit with Data's admission to the Borg Queen that he only had sex with Tasha Yar
    This is pure fluff and smut with no plot but a bittersweet ending (all good things and all that)

    Summary

    Every three weeks Seungcheol is tasked to navigate the treacherous strait to reach the island where the lighthouse stands, bringing supplies to the keeper who lives there, alone amongst the crags. He hadn't planned on getting stuck there, though. What unfurled afterwards was even less planned; how he would come to feel about Junhui least of all.

    (or: of course resurrecting a century-old witch and stepping into the land of the dead to break a curse would have some rippling effect, what did everyone expect?)

    Summary

    'He had hit all the milestones that most people only wished to have reached within a year of being in Scotland and he wanted to be as happy as Greg was. He felt guilty for not being as content as his husband and he had started to wonder if he was perhaps selfish for wanting more.

     A part of him often asked him when he was alone with his thoughts or when he was in bed: what now?'

    Summary

    Two years ago, Alex fled Evanston with his band to follow his dreams in LA, leaving behind his family and childhood best friend, Willie. Now, he’s promised his sister he’d come home for her winter showcase, and he’s flailing at the realization that none of his friends will be coming with him.

    When he gets home, he finds that Willie never quite forgave him for their last interaction. He insists upon making it up to him, but he’s not sure how. He's only got so much time, and midnight pancake runs and minor instances of breaking and entering can only go so far.

    Summary

    It's silent, only the creaking of the oars as they dip down, dragging through the water, steadily pushing them forward, cut through the stillness. He's sitting in the back, sun relentless over him, but he doesn't dare to ask for water since he's already been scolded for nearly falling into the water as he got on the boat. Taeyong has his back turned against him and he can feel his disapproval radiate from how his shoulders are tensed up. He understands though, if the tables were turned he probably would have wished for someone more experienced too. Instead he got him, Yuta, who really doesn't know anything about nothing when it comes to the task laid before them. As they near the island the familiar sounds of waves crashing against rocks and screeching seagulls break up the tension somewhat. Even Taeyong seems to relax, suddenly seeming eager, as if he can't wait to get to shore. Yuta looks up at his new home for the summer. It's not really a friendly looking place, all sharp rocks, crashing waves and then, rising up from it tall, in a sort of intimidating majesty, the lighthouse.

    Summary

    "After a life spent in southern California, this was the coldest place she’d ever been — and probably the least populated, too — but there was something extraordinarily peaceful about it.

    This was an outcrop of rock surrounded by water that would sooner kill her than treat her with kindness, and she was in the middle of it. Catra had never thought of herself as one for poetry, but the coast told her differently. It had a mind and a heart that was all its own.

    In front of a vast and ruthless sea, Catra closed her eyes."

    Or: Catra, an oceanographer working on her dissertation, moves to an abandoned lighthouse at the northernmost point of Washington to finish her work and escape her past. There, she meets Adora: a local fisherman with an inexplicable sense of haunting that surrounds them. In each other, they search for companionship, understanding, and acceptance at their most vulnerable.

    Summary

    'He believed that it was only with nature and his isolation from the rest of the world that he would be able to create something beautiful.  It was after reading Walden that he had felt inspired to accept the post. He wondered if being in the Scottish highlands in order to look after a lighthouse would allow him to live deliberately and see the essential facts of life, and would perhaps learn what it meant to live. He hoped that he would be able to discover how sublime the world could be once more, he had only experienced the meanness of it over the years. '

    Mycroft ends up taking an opportunity as a lighthouse keeper in Scotland to take comfort in the isolation to avoid his past. Greg has been running the local bakery for the last three years after a life in London.

    Summary

    Life has become so mundane in the past few years that there’s very little that sends a thrill up Luke’s spine anymore. It’s that idea that had him saying yes to the idea of moving out here for a few weeks anyways: the knowledge that this was a completely new place where no one knew his name. He could be anyone he wanted to be here, within reason. He wouldn’t be seeing any of these people again after May, so what’s the harm in becoming a new person for a bit? Someone not so bogged down by the shit in their head that they can’t get out of bed some mornings. Maybe this is a step in the direction of the person Luke wants to be in the future anyways.

    Or, Luke inherits a beach house on a tiny costal island that needs some work. He didn't plan on falling in love with the guy at the hardware store.
