    Summary

    Crowley hadn’t meant to cause any trouble in Babel, really he was just enjoying how very clever the humans could be and resting on the laurels of the Flood (who else could take credit for making humans so evil they had to be wiped out, after all). But, he was there and he encouraged them to ask ‘how high can it be built?’ and well... that never ends well. The Tower falls and the language of the Earth is shattered. Angels can still understand all the languages but demons lose that ability. Worse- because Aziraphale and Crowley were at the Tower when it fell, they share in the curse of Babel and can never again understand each other’s words.

    Explores how an angel and a demon learn to trust each other when they cannot speak, how the Arrangement comes to be without negotiation, and how they conspire to stop the Apocalypse when they cannot plan.

    The fallout from the Tower of Babel incident from Babel itself to The Apocalypse.

    Summary

    Mordin and Shepard forge a strange friendship over late-night talks, chess, and language - which in turn leads them to explore culture, philosophy, and even conspiracy, over time. (An increasingly canon-divergent take on Mass Effect 2 and 3, inspired heavily by linguistics, a more realistic take on trauma, and closer friendships. All fictional languages are true languages, but are still in development!)

    First chapter is a table of contents. (Note: mature-content warning is for violence. No sexual content.)

    Summary

    The door opens midway through Luke's second round of furious knocking, and his horror at the situation doubles when a man steps out on the threshold. He’s only slightly taller than Luke, a little broader in the shoulder, but the way he takes up the doorway makes him look big.


    Luke is a grad student trying to finish his PhD after an unexpected leave of absence. His neighbor, Din, is a single dad and delivery guy at Pizza Parsec.

    (Actually, Pizza Parsec is just a front for the bounty hunters' guild. But Luke doesn't need to know that.)

    Tilion of the silver bow loved starlight and the hunt and the shining dew of Telperion in the gardens of Estë, and so it's not much of a surprise when he falls for Tyelkormo son of Curufinwë as well.

    Summary

    My conlang (constructed language) for Hylian as it will appear in any of my Legend of Zelda works. It's definitely way more in-depth than it needs to be, but hey, this was fun to make and there's always the chance I might need a word! I'm posting this so any of my readers interested in seeing my verb charts, as well as any randos who'd like an idea of how to build their own little conlang, can see what I'm working off of.

    If anyone wants to use this "Hylian" in their fics, feel free! Just credit me, please.

    Summary

    A Tale of Three Perspectives:

    Mischa Starling, the rebellious daughter of three polyamorous cannibals, keeps a journal as her twenty-first birthday approaches.

    Will Graham, the less dramatic half of the Murder Husbands, tells Mischa the story of how he met her mother.

    And Clarice Starling, happiest of all Trophy Wives and keeper of the basement keys, enjoys her special life in their Murder House.

    Crack ensues, but less cracky as we move along with the actual story. A little drama and a lot of humor, mixed with food, sex, and the occasional splash of blood.

    Summary

    The crew of the spaceship Sleepy Bois Inc. just wants to get off of the planet without any trouble. It's going fine until Wilbur finds an injured child. Now they have to deal with a 7 year old Tommy, who's literally been abducted by aliens and is rightfully freaked out. Not to mention, he's a human.

    To the galaxy, humans are an incredibly dangerous species. The galactic council decreed that their planet be left alone until they naturally find their way into space. The few poachers that have been daring enough to take a human have all met gruesome fates at the hands of the humans. Even children are seen as dangerous, so SBI is a bit concerned about the new addition to their ship.

     

    This is yet another humans are space orcs fic, featuring actual child Tommy.

    Summary

    When Ishigami Byakuya left his descendants behind to help his adopted son, he didn’t realize that by the time Senku woke up, he and the inhabitants of Ishigami Village wouldn’t be able to understand each other.

    Luckily, since Senku is Senku, he’s going to turn the situation to his advantage.

    (a.k.a. what happens when you introduce linguistic realism to Dr. STONE, bc no language is gonna be exactly the same after 3,700 years. that’s just not how languages work, my dude.)

    Summary

    At first, it’s intimidating, in a way. Knowing that he has the ability to do this, to soak up this wealth of information and retain it in a way his brain had previously refused to do. He always thought of himself as a doorway, a gate between the living and the dead. Translation is just a different kind of door. One that is also his to hone, but one that he is not burdened with.

    Or, a study of Klaus's relationship to foreign language, his powers, his family, and how close he manages to make it to contentment before it's snatched away.

    Summary

    When he was a child, the words on his tongue were many flavored things, dancing from his lips in accordance to his mood and situation, and of course the understanding of those he addressed.  Languages were passed down in lieu of heirlooms, the language of his father and his father, back and back and back, and the language of his mother and her mother whom he’d never met.
