    Summary

    There once was a tumblr post that reimagined Les Amis as Gothic fiction tropes. My mind went wild with the idea, and here we are: Les Amis, reimagined, with gratuitous literary references to various Romantics and other assorted writers.

    This is a work in progress; I will add tags and warnings as we go along.
    (I can promise that this will stay pretty much PG, though, except for the occasional creepyness along the lines of ETA Hoffmann or EA Poe).

    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

    In this modern day retelling of Hades and Persephone, Kylo and Rey are rulers of neighboring nation states that were once embroiled in a millennia-long war. After a particularly devastating battle along a shared border, they enter a marriage of convenience that serves as collateral for a much-needed armistice.

    Chapter 10 Excerpt:

    “Hello, Persephone,” he murmured – fingers itching to brush a silken lock of chestnut hair away from the one-eyed mask she wore. It was crafted from leaf after leaf of red, yellow, and green Devil’s ivy – the same that grew in Rey’s orangery. “How very… Lush you look this evening.”

    Her color deepened, and as she chewed on her lower lip, he felt certain that she’d nibbled at that delectable expanse of flesh exactly like this – when she’d touched herself at his command.

    Summary

    He’s just merging onto the highway when he starts thinking again. The nightmares. Sure, he's a Winchester-- nightmares are like in the fucking guidebook of being one, --but these are new, though. And they’re about Cas. Which isn’t. Well. It’s certainly unprecedented, but the source is dubious. It’s not some freaky ‘hellgate’ thing because the nightmares aren’t that sort of creepy. That’s not to say they aren’t fucked up. It’s just that…

    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

    All Eren Jaegar wanted was to get revenge on the Grimm that killed his mom. All Mikasa and Armin wanted was to make sure he didn't die in the process. Neither quite got what they wanted. What they got was a war. They, along with the rest of their newfound companions from the students of Beacon Academy, are about to uncover a world quite unlike what they knew or wanted to know. Only one thing is clear--Grimm are far from being their greatest enemy. A quest is given: one that is far from just difficult--it is impossible. But like the suicidal maniacs that have gone before them, they will do it anyways.

    A fusion-crossover AU with Attack on Titan characters in the world of RWBY.

    Summary

    Alfred and Matthew live a comfortable and boring life in the English countryside, in a house that is most likely not haunted. It all becomes more interesting when a pretty Russian lady shows up at their door one night. At 2 AM. During a storm.

    It's the start of a story that spans several years and features, in no particular order: Russian confectioneries, crappy English weather, journeying through pre-WW2 Europe, lots of story telling and fine Italian art.

    Chapters 1-4: Matthew develops a passion for Dostoevsky and Alfred really wants to find out why all the heroes in Russian stories are named Ivan.
    Chapters 5-6: Alfred goes to Florence, finally meets a man named Ivan and gets his first kiss. It's not exactly what he expected.

    Summary

    Fate, destiny, karma- whatever it is you believe, some paths were bound to intertwine and influence. These common objectives could be found within the soul at its awakening point. Or, in this case, too many wine glasses and blood.

    Alexander and John have their individual sorrows and conflicts- whether it's aimlessly chasing stars or seeking an invisible silver lining. Against all odds, Love and Time allow them to meet once again...under a few conditions.
