    Summary

    When Ivan Dreyar finds out his son is dating another man, he uses an old curse to drain Laxus's magic. With Laxus in a coma, Freed frantically tries to keep him alive by any means necessary, even ones Laxus would disapprove of.

    Finally, Laxus wakes...but he has no magic. None.

    Ivan sends people to attack Freed for unknown reasons, making Laxus feel like a scared child all over again. He hates watching Freed defend himself and being unable to help. And Freed seems to be keeping secrets. Laxus has to end this. Even if it means facing his father.

    (Laxus dealing with PTSD from childhood emotional/physical abuse.)

    Summary

    Yara is a Syrian refugee, and well, life doesn't get much shittier than that, does it? Well, 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 the hell 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. Also, 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.

    Summary

    “How much further?”

    “Not far.”

    “Be more precise, please, Porthos.”

    He grins over his shoulder at him, a wide beam though the edges are tired, he sees. “A mile, tops.”

    Athos merely raises the middle of his brow high at this intelligence, makes a pointed heft of his burden.

    Porthos, uncowed, merely says: “It’ll be worth it. Trust me.”

    *

    Another instalment in the long series of pieces based around the black box that is the Musketeers during the Spanish War.

    Summary

    Summary

    When he was eight, Izuku woke up in a world entirely unlike his own. There were no quirks, it seemed like nobody spoke Japanese, and he was pretty sure that circle around him matched the human transmutation circle from that one old TV show he’d watched a lot.

    Life seemed to be settling down for Ed. He was engaged to Winry, honorably discharged from the military, and content to teach the odd student alchemical theories here and there. Then his first and only apprentice died doing the one thing Ed had made him promise not to, and Mustang dropped the child his apprentice had summoned practically onto Ed’s lap. How did the man expect him to take care of a kid he couldn’t understand?

    Summary

    Blame it on his line of work, maybe, but his brain is wired to make connections, follow leads, and dig up secrets. And now that he's noticed this hang-up, he's curious: What's the deal with Venom's name?

    Summary

    A fanfic about a blind Undertale protagonist, written by a real blind person.

    Currently undergoing major revisions. Most likely won't update until those revisions are completed, but we'll see.

    When in doubt, read the preface of the story, and the summaries and endnotes for each chapter as you go along. They're important... especially later on.

    Copious swearing and pop cultural references.

    Also if anyone has read far enough in the story to know what the "Soulology," "Psychophysiology," "Magitry," "Ethermetry," and "Translationism" tags are, congrats.

    As of 11/28/2017, Visiontale has a TV Tropes and Idioms page! Update it, and link to it on other pages on TV Tropes at your leisure.

    Summary

    If you could see your whole life from start to finish, would you change things?
    Maybe I’d say what I feel more often.

    When alien spacecrafts arrive in twelve major cities around the world, linguist Jemma Simmons is recruited by S.H.I.E.L.D. Director Coulson to join his team in identifying why the shuttles landed on Earth. Assigned to work with engineer Leopold Fitz, the pair are tasked with learning to communicate with the alien species inhabiting the shuttles. But when mysterious dreams suddenly begin to cloud Jemma's mind, she'll soon learn her true role in this mission and the repercussions of learning a language out of this world.
