    Summary

    What if Jim used his second chance a little more sensibly? What if he knew better than to leave everything to chance? So, he promised himself to intervene only once. Only one time, because now he doesn’t have any armor or a big sword to back him up. He only has his memories … and he will not give them to just anyone.

    Summary

    When the Baudelaire orphans wake up in a mysterious seaside village, and are given numbers rather than names, they are surprised to realise that they can find the answers to which they seek. The misery, heartbreak and unending woe, however, is less surprising, so please turn back now, before you read any more.

    Summary

    The Herald and the Prophet. Earthlings. To make it in this new world, they will have to work together. And not die. The Prophet's convinced that everything the universe over is trying its best to prevent just that. The not dying part, that is. There's no such thing as coincidence and more than one person's doing the creeping. Keep your friends close and your sketchy, elfy mentors closer.

    At least they understand each other's jokes.

    Summary

    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. A quest is given that is beyond 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

    In England, Peter falls in love with a brilliant, beautiful girl with the steadiest hands he’s ever seen. No healer on Narnian battlefields could stitch with such precision as she can, and her status as one of the first black female doctors in Britain is not an unwarranted one.

    Peter eventually proposes to her, but not before telling her of Narnia, of its green glens and wild dances and grand battles. He tells her of sibling monarchs and omniscient lions, of brave warriors and river gods.

    When Peter is pulled back into Narnia a few days later, his hands are near permanently stained with the ink of his doctoral dissertation. (The subject: the recurrence of messianic figures throughout cultures in world history.)

    Peter is not a commander anymore. His voice is softened by years spent in a library, his command of armies dulled by quiet debates with professors and peers. He is sentimental in softer ways now- his gestures of grandeur have been minimized from countrywide spectacles to candlelit dinners in his flat.

     

    (Peter Pevensie is told he can never return to Narnia. When he gets pulled back into Narnia for the third time, he is a far different person than the King he once was.)

    Summary

    AU/canon divergent. It was a game, Aizen told himself, to see if could pull Gin into his sphere of influence, and more importantly into his bed. Then cast him aside when he got bored. But the reality was very different, and he was just deluding himself. Gin, however, decides to play along with his game. And it becomes a battle of wits to see who falls first. Even if it's completely unnecessary.

    Eventual smut. Some lighthearted silliness fuelled by caffeine and late night writing sessions. AU in which Gin is a lot older than he is in bleach canon.

    Summary

    "The marriage of Sigyn and Loki is a mystery waiting to be revealed." So says the entry on the official Marvel site. Well, wait no longer. Set between the events of The Dark World and Ragnarok, this is my version of the courtship of the God of Mischief and the Goddess of Fidelity. Painstakingly MCU compliant as of Ragnarok, which is clearly the latest movie I have to worry about, right?

    When Loki finds his charade as the Allfather has become tedious, he hatches a new scheme to ruin the happiness of an old rival. What he doesn't plan on is falling in love in the process...

    Chapter Three Posted: Loki makes Theoric an offer he can't refuse, and Amora crashes his party.

    Summary

    "All warfare is based on deception." - Sun Tzu, The Art of War

    Book 4 of the Avatar Zuko series follows Lu Ten's adventures at Ba Sing Se. Nothing is fair in love and war. There's a lot of singing, writing, mutual pining, questionable battle sequences, and untold amounts of angst. You have been warned. It does get very dark towards the end, but I promise you, Lu Ten will get his happy ending and everything will be resolved in the last book of this series.
