    Summary

    Yang's all burning embers and reckless smiles, and Blake knows that the girl with a too-bright smile will be her downfall, that touching Yang will leave her broken with half-kept promises lingering bitter on her lips.

    Blake's drawn to fire, and Yang makes her burn from the inside out.

    I promise, she says, and she can't take it back.

    Summary

    Over the years, John and Paul had shared jokes and stories. They'd shared meals. They'd shared song lyrics and melodies, strummed on guitars or picked out from the keys of the pianos in whatever room they'd happened to find themselves that night. They'd shared stages, and microphones, and studio recording spaces. They'd shared ideas, and they'd shared heartache; they'd shared triumphs and they'd shared loss.

    From the basements of Liverpool to the rooftops of London, without realising it, they'd been sharing her all along as well...

    Summary

    Hardly anything had been more difficult to endure for Matthias Køhler and Lukas Bondevik, two strangers unaware of each other's existence at the time, than the losses of their beloved cats. Fortunately, new furry companions came into their lives. They were at once poor and lost strays, but they were just as lovable. Although, they could never completely wash away the lamentations Matthias and Lukas held regarding their original companions.

    Someone along this journey of grief, these two strangers do cross paths. As they bond, perhaps a simple, hidden truth would rise out of the shadows: "One often meets with those whom one never expected to see again." (quote from Voltaire, Candide ou L'Optimiste)

    Hetalia and it's characters belong to Himaruya Hidekaz

    Summary

    The Camelot Library and Archive of Arcane and Magical Artifacts' board has a new director and a new member. Merlin, the head librarian, is unimpressed by the flagrant nepotism. He is also unimpressed by the new board member's arrogance, looks, and attitude. Especially his looks. Especially unimpressed! He isn't affected at all. Nope. Not one bit.

    There will be adventure, and eventually there will be smut.

    Summary

    “I’ll cut straight to the chase,” Liam announces. He leans forward, and Zayn is met with steely eyes and steepled fingers. “I’m willing to offer you fifty grand if you’ll enter into a small…partnership with me. This would be in addition to your salary at Payne Innovations, of course. Think of it as a bonus.”

    Zayn narrows his eyes. “What kind of partnership?”

    “A fake engagement.”

    “Oh,” Zayn says, relieved it’s nothing illegal. “Wait—what?”

    “A fake engagement,” his boss repeats slowly, as if he’s convinced Zayn’s comprehension skills are significantly lacking. “For six months. Maybe less if I can pull it off sooner but don’t worry—you’ll be paid the full sum regardless of how long it takes.”

    Zayn’s suspicious, and he doesn’t even know why. There’s nothing to be suspicious of because, clearly, Liam’s lost the plot. Zayn’s having a conversation with a complete nutter. There’s no other reasonable explanation.

    He clears his throat, searches Liam’s eyes for a sign he's taking the piss. “How long what takes?”

    A smile plays at Liam’s lips. “For me to be hired as the CTO at Titan Technologies.”

    Summary

    In the aftermath of the Cilenti arrests, Charles Parker is given the thankless task of purifying the police and pursuing criminals at the same time. He's not happy about it. But at least he has expert (if unofficial) help.

    Updates planned but will be irregular (sorry.) Feedback welcomed, especially as revising to make crossover fic non-obnoxious to those with knowledge of only one fandom is underway.

    Summary

    [In military science, Force Multiplication is an attribute or a combination of attributes that multiplies the effectiveness of a soldier or weapon, giving a small number of troops or individuals the ability to accomplish greater tasks than without it.]

    Jack Morrison is 26, just completed the first half of his Special Forces "Q-Course," and just got airdropped to a secret base in the snowy mountains of Idaho along with the other "supersoldier candidates."

    [Common force multipliers are: terrain, geographical features, weather]

    He doesn't really know how to feel about his new "number" (76) or the fact that he's joined a program that will "genetically and phenotypically modify him, as well as train him extensively, to survive better against the bots."

    [Training and experience]

    He never thought he was particularly "special" (though he'll be the first to admit he's always hoped for an adventure worthy of legend).

    [Tactics and intelligence]

    And he thought SEP would just be more training

    [Morale]

    Until he met "Soldier: 24"

    [Friends]

    Gabriel Reyes

    [Inspiration]

    And Jack experienced a revelation

    And they changed the course of history.

    Summary

    “I’m going to say something,” Theo says, no, announces, after having barged in on Liam’s bedroom like he owns the place, because Theo can never just walk in somewhere, oh no, god forbid, “and you are going to wait until I’m done to say anything else.”

    Liam stares. He had been in the middle of Chemistry homework before Theo had rudely interrupted him and now he’s lost all track of where this equation is going. Or his life, but hey, that one went off track way earlier.

    “Good.” Theo nods to himself as if Liam’s silence is agreement and not a direct result of being smacked in the face with unreasonable demands on an otherwise ordinary Saturday afternoon. “And you can’t follow me after.”

     

    or, alternatively, the one where Theo has something to say, Liam has an epiphany, and Mason really needs to step up his metaphor game.

    Summary

    Alex and Piper both teach at the same school. Alex is falling fast, but Piper is determined to keep their relationship hidden from her family. How long can it last? (This is a sequel to Carry Your Heart, but also works as a standalone too. Recap in first chapter.) Plenty of smut, some jokes, and a load of largely unnecessary literary references. Let's have a laugh.

    Summary

    "There are chords in the hearts of the most reckless which cannot be touched without emotion. Even with the utterly lost, to whom life and death are equally jests, there are matters of which no jest can be made."

    Summary

    Many eons ago, I started posting photos of my doll collection on DA just to show them off. I set them up in room boxes and posed them for photographs and the stories began. About three years ago I took a drastic move and ended up selling most of my collection. I am back in a spacious place now and have started the comics over. So here they are. They are egregiously silly, please do not expect anything serious from them.

    But enjoy.
