    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, and his family.

    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

    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

    Flashback!

    A mysterious party is trying to dig their claws into Beau's inheritance.

    Something sinister is lurking in the heart of Eiselcross. To distract herself from all the other bullshit going on, Beau agrees to go on an expedition with the tall, muscular ex-soldier Yasha, and the asshole in a technicolor dreamcoat, Molly.

    Things will change far more than she ever could have expected.

    Summary

    No one addressed this, she considered thoughtfully. Originally a racial epithet applied to Vulcans, even then it had made little sense considering the fact that Vulcans were far from uniform.

    Summary

    My rendition of the Wordmasochist Challenge, found here: https://primarybufferpanel.tumblr.com/post/86685591344/primarybufferpanel-blackestglass

    Poetry that showcases the linguistic hot mess that is English, a language that is 3 languages in a trenchcoat mugging other languages in a dark alley and rifling their pockets for spare words.

    Summary

    Важно помнить, что когда человек говорит, что ненавидит тебя, он делает это без романтического подтекста.

    Страшнее человеческого безразличия только человеческая ненависть. В конце концов, у них только два слова для дружбы.

    Или так нам казалось.

    Summary

    After the events of Future, Steven makes a friend on the road. A strange friend, who acts more like a dog than a human, but is nice. After working out a way to communicate, Steven determines that he's called Finn, and that he's not from around here. Finn, on the other hand, knows what's coming; that all things end, even the world Steven knows. He wonders if he has the right to change that.

    Summary

    "Help me." She asked and he responded. He woke up and scared off the pilot fish. Only it was too early and he paid for it with a small (light, hardly even worth mentioning really) neural implosion. Then, he went back to sleep and it all should have been fixed when he woke up.

    Except.

    Except he's up now and talking to some awfully bold Sycorax and no one understands a bleeding word he's saying.

    (Or; It turns out there are consequences to implosions in one's head and now the Doctor can't stop speaking Gallifreyan. The TARDIS is less helpful than one might hope.)

    Summary

    In retrospect, Leo figured that all this was punishment for looking at porn when he should have been grading.

    He’d thought that the actor’s face looked familiar: the perpetual scruff, the tousled brown hair, the sun-kissed copper of his skin. Maybe it had taken him a second to recognize who it was because, absent his trademark boots and scarf, and dressed only in scanty leathers, he could have passed for someone else. But once he realized who it was, the horror of discovery combined with the thrill of scandal kept his eyes glued to the screen.

    Mendoza. Isaac Mendoza, member of his cohort and fellow advisee under Professor Gutierrez, was definitely and undoubtedly in a gay porn flick.

    Life in a small linguistics department becomes unbelievably awkward for Chinese American graduate student Leo when he discovers that, not only is his classmate Isaac starring in porn, it's incredibly hot porn. Isaac's not shy about his side hustle, and soon both of them know each other's secrets. When Leo ends up being the last one at Isaac's after a party, their mutual attraction comes to a head, and Leo finds his fantasies becoming unexpectedly real...
