    Summary

    Dan Howell is living at home while he’s saving money for college, which isn’t easy since his parents don’t understand him. Unlike them, he loves dogs, is a vegetarian, has no interest in the family business, and he despises the supernatural. He struggles to accept things that are illogical, even though he is a kitsune. Kitsune are foxes whose powers involve the ability to cast illusions, but Dan just wants to be normal. Phil Lester has just moved to London, where he works as a dog walker. When his path crosses with Dan, Phil is eager to get to know him. Unfortunately, Phil soon finds that being friends with Dan is far more complicated than he could have imagined.

    From chapter 19 (teaser):
    “I’m never going to get tired of looking at you.”
    “I like looking at you, too.” He gave Phil a sad smile, since Phil didn’t seem to have taken what he had shared earlier seriously. Or maybe they just had different outlooks. Phil was an optimist who believed that they had the rest of their lives ahead of them, and Dan was a pessimist who believed that they only had two weeks. At the moment, it didn’t matter since they both wanted to spend those weeks together, and Dan was sure that they were going to be the best of his life.

    Summary

    Sidney Evergreen is your roommate, best friend, and the closest thing you have to family in this fucked up world.

    He is also the man that snatched you away from Death itself after a college party ended in tragedy ten years ago. But, hey, being a reanimated corpse has its benefits, and you aren't a shuffling Hollywood-style monster, either.

    Unfortunately for you, Sidney forgot to tell you some things. For example, he's not the only one of his kind out there.

    Neither are you.

    Turns out, that was a pretty important thing for him to forget. Now, ten years after your death, you're trying to stay alive in a world that doesn't even think you exist.

    After all, Necromancy--despite its blossoming pop culture influence--is just something that H.P. Lovecraft made up, isn't it?

    (No. The answer is no.)

    Summary

    Contrary to human belief, gods and goddesses were not immortal. The illusion of immortality survived. As such, energy was reborn into a new soul upon birth: the exact moment the previous host perished, the energy entered a new life.

    On October 6, 1994, the bright energy of the goddess once known to the ancients as Persephone entered its newest host, Lee Jooheon.

    Alternatively, a modern (gay) retelling of the story of Hades and Persephone with a dark twist.

    Summary

    The Fifth Blight was beaten back by the heroes of Ferelden - King Alistair Therin, Warden Carys Mahariel, and Warden Martin of Highever. With the breaking of the Blight came the breaking of the fellowship - and some who survived wish they hadn't. Martin, warden no longer, finds himself exiled to Kirkwall.

    Resigned to a fate of obscurity, Martin somehow finds unexpected notoriety in his exile... through a certain woman named Hawke.

    This is a novelization of Dragon Age II. Expect moderate AU with extrapolation, clarification and some addition to both the story and lore of Dragon Age II in order to better tell its tale. Changes to the deep lore are minimal, but expect most events to play out differently than they did in game. Martin's origin is unique from any in Origins.

    Credit to FenxShiral and Project Elvhen for the occasional reference for elvish.

    Summary

    magic shop is a psychodramatic technique that exchanges fear for a positive attitude.

    ~

    the magic shop sends the six of them on their way. it’s fulfilled its purpose once again. creating love out of fear, as it has done for a long, long time.

    because human minds are foolish, easily baited and easily tricked. they’re slaves to their own emotions.

    as long as humans feel, the magic shop will profit.

    that’s just how the system works.

    Summary

    Odin gives Loki a choice when he is brought back to Asgard: imprisonment, or execution. When Loki chooses the latter, Odin increases his punishment twofold, and Loki is sent back to Midgard in order to repay his debt. Bound by his own magic and forced to obey whatever order Steve Rogers lays out for him, Loki is forced to attempt a redemption he neither wants nor deserves.

    This fic is a mix of character study & headcanon building, comedy, angst & genuine - slow-developing - plot.

    Note re: the intersex!Loki label: I'm a trans dude under this umbrella myself, and the intersex label isn't used fetishistically. It's simply a part of how I portray Loki and his character.

    Summary

    "You know how I sometimes call you a horse's ass?"
    "Yeah?"
    "It's a hell of a lot more accurate now." 

    It's the same old story: another day, another bad guy with designs on the planet showing up in New York City. But prepared as they are for weirdness—and Steve and Bucky thought they'd seen and suffered it all—neither of them are quite ready for where this particular tale winds up.

    Or, to be completely accurate, where this pair of tails winds up.
