    Summary

    Donghyuck doesn’t know what to do other than observe the boy in front of him.

    Broad shoulders covered in rich light blue silk that Donghyuck couldn’t fathom being woven other than by the stars that managed to stay until the morning to make sure that the sun doesn’t stay lonely for long.

    (Donghyuck's mother sets him up on a blind date, only for his date to never show up, and somehow being dumped equates to being transported back into the Joseon Dynasty. And there's a prince named Minhyung who tries to help him come back home.)

    Summary

    Everyone knows that nothing ever happens in quaint, sleepy New Exeter, but to hear Jared Padalecki tell it, the town's rife with adventure, from a fairy princess searching for her true love to neighboring mice redrawing the borders and engaging in mortal combat. Of course, everyone, from his parents to the mayor, also knows that Jared's been making up stories ever since he learned his ABCs, and his friends, the eccentric owners of The Amber Moon Magic Shoppe, only encourage him. So when Sandy and Jeff give Jared a magic ring, it doesn't mean an enchanted prince will be arriving to claim it. Or does it?

    Readers Note: I had a little help with this one - my son played young Jared. My son is...now an adult. This was posted for Podbang 2010 on 12/20/2010

    Summary

    Davina and Kol just went to Mystic Falls to check in on their niece and research a mysterious dark object that just appeared on their kitchen counter.

    Next thing Davina knew she was waking up the day after the Harvest, and last thing she clearly remembered was dying. Now she's stuck in her 16 year old body! Well... Since she's here she might as well fix things before the Mikaelsons can mess it up, again. History isn't stuck on repeat after all.

    ‘Everything. What’s your name?’

    Summary

    Fanart for the Flameborn multiverse, most of it made by DumpsterPhoenix, Detergent, SemperViridis, and CogitatingKerfuffle, with some occasional commissions.

    While some of the pieces are silly/memey in nature, most of the art is serious. Some of the art is of DumpsterPhoenix's and Detergent's OCs (canon-era Elf OCs, and Elves reborn as human OCs), and some of it is of canon characters (Elves as Elves, such as Maglor). Most of the art is safe for work - anything NSFW* will be labeled accordingly.

    Most recent additions to the collection:

    129. Maglor | 130. Anthony/Sören | 131. Anthony | 132. Maglor | 133. Sören with cat

    Coming soon: Maglor, Anthony, Finarfin, Fingolfin, Fëanor, Anthony/Sören, Celegorm, Curufin, Caranthir, Glorfindel

    For ease of navigation, recs are linked in the beginning notes.

    *Shirtless dudes don't count as NSFW; anything suggestive is labeled NSFW to err on the side of caution. That said, there is no full frontal nudity or otherwise explicit art in this collection.

    Summary

    Something in him knew without a doubt that there was more to Kim Sunoo than just an otherworldly beautiful face, but Heeseung couldn’t even begin to guess what it was, or how he would find out, or what he would do if he ever found out. Every time he’d crossed paths with Sunoo it somehow felt like he was taking one step closer to the edge of a cliff with no bottom and it at once thrilled and terrified him.

    or,

    Sunoo isn't exactly human. Heeseung definitely is. They try and make it work.

    Summary

    Whether by mistake or someone's intent, she was released into a world she thought she knew - by the books she read and the movies she watched. But none of it prepared her for living in the Wizarding World. Especially not in 1990 before Harry Potter even enters Hogwarts, and certainly not by arriving on the Ministry of Magic's front doorstep.

    Summary

    Once, the fae retreated from the world of men. Magic hid behind secrecy, and the queens and their courts receded further beyond the mists. But war strikes not only the hearts of men, and sometimes one needs to flee back toward Albion in hopes of sanctuary.

    Summary

    Sirius Black wasn't born a blood traitor.
    Nor was he born a blood supremacist; he was just born powerful.

    The family talks, the paintings whisper, and Sirius listens, and Regulus watches.

    The family tree boughs bend as Sirius listens. Regulus watches.

    Summary

    The truth is that no one knows where magic comes from. It’s highly disputed. What is commonly accepted by the majority of the community is that magic originated with life - as in, with water. Water was where magic came from and creatures/plants eventually evolved around magic. Certain creatures were able to harness magic; others evolved away from it.



     ~ Origins of Magic, chapter 1 line 10

    Chanyeol always calls him reckless. Sehun likes to think of it as dangerous but with benefits. It's practically his job, anyway, what's life without a little adrenaline?

    This, however - this, being Muscular Person 1 and Muscular Person 2 standing in his apartment, one with a gun trained on his head - might be a bit too much to handle.

    In the ensuing silent panic, Sehun is just glad Chanyeol isn't here; he really was in over his head with this.




     
    OR: It would be fairly accurate to say that sparks flew when Sehun first met Jongin.
     
    Too bad that fires are so hard to tame.

    Summary

    I dreamt of a stranger last night; a stranger, though I felt I knew him.

    ‘I’ve been here,’ he said, his smile as sweet as the summer perfume in the air. ‘I’ve been here, my love. You just couldn’t see me.’

    When Jeon Jeongguk’s sister dies, the grief in his heart consumes him. The blackness of the night provides neither comfort nor love; no words could bring her back, no story could lead him home, no touch could provide him absolution.

    The day he meets Min Yoongi, however, he remembers what he had once known for certain.

    The most magical of fairy tales always begin in the dark.

    Summary

    There are souls without bodies, and there are bodies without souls. This Scaramouche knows very well. Better than his own name, even, which he has all but forgotten, except by candlelight on nights when a thunderstorm rattles the paper screens like teeth in a dead man’s skull and his name steals back up on the doorstep, ghostlike, to whisper in his ear.

    In a village that knows more monsters than heroes and loves them dearly, Scaramouche meets the young master of the Kaedehara clan while on a mission to poison the Raiden Shogun's already paranoid mind. He has his own troubles that do not fold away as easily as rice paper screens do, including a name that refuses to die, and the fact that Kaedehara Kazuha cannot know who he is.

    Summary

    Ten years ago, Jeon Jeongguk's parents - the leaders of the infamous Seoul Jeon Syndicate - were caught and imprisoned for life, and Jeongguk was quietly moved to the seaside city of Busan to grow up without their reputation hanging over his head. Now he's moving back to Seoul to attend university and start his own life... but barely a week in to his first year, and someone spills the tea on his identity.

    Now he has to struggle to keep his head down and not get caught out, and the only help he has are six strange boys who seem to be far too familiar with him, and are maybe part of a delusional wiccan cult?

    Summary

    You would think that being a love god would be impressive with tons of advantages. That, it would be spectacular and glorious...

    An individual’s reality seldom lives up to the imagination of the masses.
    --
    In which Kuroo Tetsurou is a normal human being and Tsukishima Kei is the cupid assigned to his case.
    The only problem; Kuroo Tetsurou refuses to cooperate.

    Summary

    After being caught kissing a boy after Sunday's mass, Choi Soobin's parents sent him to Father Edward Institute, a Christian boarding school for troubled boys. Soobin hoped that his life from then on would be a little more peaceful. However, he should've known better with the friends he had.

    Especially the one who decided to unleash Hell on Earth, quite literally. And some bad guys who try to make life hard.

    Mix that with a crippling crush on his best friend, a ghost haunting them and people trying to cleanse him from the devil, it was safe to say that Soobin was very stressed.

    Sketchy antagonists, vengeful spirits, all that's to do is to catch them if you can.

    Summary

    Sebastian has never given two thoughts to the writer who lives on the beach. He probably hasn’t said more than five words to him the entire time the man has lived in Pelican Town.

    Elliott needs a muse. He’s sought a simple, impoverished life hoping to spark creativity. Now running out of his novel’s advance and time to get it to the publisher, he doesn’t know if he’s got what it takes to hack it.

    On a cold, rainy night in early spring, two lost souls accidentally touch. What happens next is something neither expected.
