    Summary

    Remus, for as long as he can remember, always had a messy life. His years at Hogwarts, a school of magic where the names Sirius Black and James Potter were worth something, Peter Pettigrew was almost as strange as him, and girls seemed to be just an endless enigma, turned out to be the best years of his life. Years of friendships, love, self-discovery.

    This, of course, before the war changed his and his friends’ life forever.

    (fic about the Marauders’ time at Hogwarts (from fourth year) and the first wizarding war.

    mostly canon-complaint, bigger diversion from canon is that Remus is the one who raises Harry after the Potters' death.)

    ! CURRENTLY IN THE SUMMER BETWEEN FIFTH AND SIXTH YEAR !

    Summary

    Devotion. Ruthlessness. Utterly amoral, unbending loyalty. Nothing else in this world matters but you. I would defy the stars for you. I would set the world on fire for you. There’s nothing left to do but prove myself to you. If I sacrifice everything, I would do it all for you.

    Summary

    The night Shlee hatches in the trunk of a skycar, an asari watches and cries. She promises he will survive, at all and every cost. Shlee believes her. He stomachs the resentment of his alien sisters forced into hiding with him, and dreams about the stars.
    But the Milky Way is vast, swirling; painfully interwoven. And when Shlee begins to wonder who he is, who he should be, and what secrets keep this fragile galaxy from splitting apart, perhaps it’s already too late.

    Summary

    Eddie believes three core things about the art of performance. 1. all the world's a stage. 2. performance is both a weapon and a shield, he wields it as both. And 3. you can’t act death.

    To quote Stoppard: “It’s not gasps and blood and falling about—that isn’t what makes it death. It’s just a man failing to reappear, that’s all…”

    And Eddie had gasped and bled and fell about, and was foolish enough in that moment to believe that was death. But he forgot a crucial step: he reappeared.

    Or: Steve is taking it day by day, flitting between the high school and the hospital and Hopper’s cabin, locking any thoughts of Eddie Munson away at the back of his mind. Meanwhile, Eddie is just trying to get out of the Upside Down, with nothing but a nail-shield and the world's worst company.

    Summary

    “The way I see it, there’s a point in everybody’s life where they need a major transformation. And when that time comes you have to grab it by the tail. Grab it hard, and never let go.”

    Summary

    In any case, he walked in just in time to catch one of the books falling off the end of the shelf. It was Ulysses, too, so he might have saved my life… and he didn't even make fun of me. Just asked if he could borrow some of the books, and offered his own shelf for book overflow.
    Oh, I almost forgot. His name is Ed!

     

    Olu&jim: Having Ulysses in your room in case you want to read something before bed - very smart.

    Olu&Jim: having ulysses in your room in case he attacks you - very smart.

    Summary

    “There’s a shade of blue one can only find in Yokohama.”

    Dazai Osamu is thirty-three, a best-selling writer, the youngest winner in the history of a prestigious literary prize and an Alpha.
    He's a father, a genius and — some say — a disappointment.

    Nakahara Chuuya is twenty-five.

    Summary

Including but not limited to; Sapphires' sexual flare-ups and the needy boys she lives with, magical mishaps of the highest variety, kidnappings(?), the job that Xros hates, but worst of all; getting up on some kind of time, truly the scariest threat of mankind! Numerous characters will be introduced to them in their day-to-day life and they may join in on the fun. We'll suck, fuck, bite, fight, laugh and cry during this crazy, noisy adventure of ours! Note: Some of the tags may solely be for the referencing purposes but I might include a character or two from a different franchise if you want me to/ if I feel like it. I am serious about having some other folks show up so just bear with me when I say those tags aren't entirely for show.

    Summary

    Perhaps it was Alicent Hightower who had noticed Rosyln Tyrell's thorns when she made her her little secret thief, but Aemond Targaryen was the one who really saw that behind those curious fawn eyes was hidden some sort of poison that very few possessed.

    Luckily for him, he knew everything there was to know about mithridatism.

    Summary

    Johnny Silverhand died a legend, but she has no use for those.
    She wonders if he has it in him to be something else.
    This is a (mostly) canon-compliant story about V and Johnny Silverhand, their relationship through the game and beyond, the ever-important quest of burning corpo shit and trying to survive in a world that wants to kill you. Shipping tag, but really mostly platonic/slow burn in this part.

    Summary

    Geppetto loves his new dear son made of wood Pinocchio VERY *much*- so much, that he wants to keep him safe from all and any harm ...and that includes *EMOTIONAL hurt* (which he still accidentally causes). When Pinocchio expresses a wish to go to school like other 'real' kids, his Father who had lost so much before he came along gently tells him that the outside world is a dangerous place, and that he will be laughed at and told by the other children and adults that he's hideous- deformed/disfigured compared to other children. No; it is *MUCH better* to stay in here, where it's safe... Pinocchio doesn't quite understand, and is not a little hurt, but says that he does in order not to upset his Father.

    -But how can one become 'real' if they are shut away from the world??

    Seven years later, Pinocchio comes across a MUCH *different* Fox and Cat duo when they try to hide in his and Father's home to get away from the people chasing them, offering him a deal in the process...

    Summary

    Yes, my name will be hers. “Manon to Marguerite”. The man himself wrote it in flourished script on the first page of my story. Humility, he wrote, and I still think, whose? That word is foreign to women like Marguerite Gautier and me. That word means nothing, it is naught but worthless promises. As in reality all promises are. At the end of things.

     

    Marguerite came to know Manon through theatre and literature, but Manon came to know Marguerite first. And she describes her in detail, and she describes her well.
