    Summary

    You didn't actually mean to summon a demon, but there you were, in the middle of your inherited house, drinking tea with one. And you definitely had not meant to touch him in a way that made him go wild. But once again, there you were, with a golden demon unraveling beneath your fingers.

    Your grandmother had a lot of explaining to do, should you meet her in the afterlife.

    Summary

    "Be careful, Luffy," Makino would chide, fearing for him every time he stared into the sea too long. Her hands would shake as she dried the seawater from his skin and wiped the sand from his feet, "If you aren’t careful, the sea gods will take you."

    Summary

    A new girl moves to town and Edward struggles with his control around her and stays away to try and save her soul.
    But what if she doesn’t have a soul?
    The Cullen’s learn the hard way that they are not quite at the top of the food chain and their are things far scarier than sparkling veggie vamps lurking in the shadows.

    “If you think you’re damned then what the hell do you think about me? Oh fuck. Don’t tell me you’re a religious fanatic and start spraying holy water on me.”

    Edward/OC

    Summary

    Thor is distraught by Loki's sacrifice on the Dark World. He never in a million years would have thought it would happen. He is determined to fix it somehow. He is forbidden from bringing him back... but Odin didn't say Thor couldn't stop it from happening at all. This time, armed with knowledge of how much his little brother bottled everything inside, Thor was going to ensure mistakes weren't repeated.

     

    A Time Travel Fix-it where Loki really did die and Thor goes back to save his brother before he needs saving. A strange hybrid of marvel bits and actual Norse mythos all crammed into angsty wrapping. Epic Length Story Warning

    Summary

    "They have bodies black as the smoke of hell and hide their identities with the skull of God's beasts. They have hands sharper than a man-made blade. They're born in the fear of the silence and revel in the score of tearing flesh and crying infants. These are beings so evil, that even Lucifer himself will not house them in hell."

    Summary

    "I got nothing to say except that I think I love you." Alucard felt his eyes widen and had no idea how to address this extremely outlandish proclamation on her part. "Oh god, that made me sound crazy." Yes it did, he already had theories, but she was close to confirming them. "It's just that I am like the world's biggest Dracula fan girl." Confirmed, she was off her rocker. "This is just…awesome. Do you have any idea how funny that was. I love guys with a sense of humor. How did you guess I liked Dracula?" She was grinning like a maniac. Didn't people know what a monster he was?

    "You do know that Dracula was a brutal king." He found this to be an interesting conversation, amused at the sheer delight in her eyes. Maybe he was just amused because he was his own favorite topic?

    A girl ends up in a dangerous situation, and it keeps spiraling down from there.

    Summary

    Quiere gritar por auxilio, pero sabe que tan lejos del pueblo no tiene sentido (teme más a lo que pueda llegar a escucharla aquí afuera). A merced de Dios, no hay nada que la proteja contra la intemperie, las fieras o los indios. Martina tendrá suerte si sobrevive la noche.

    Summary

    Draco Malfoy is a liar and always has been. So when he does end up at Durmstrang (no matter what he claimed in first year), it starts to feel terribly like the past is overtaking the present.
    It also starts to feel like a trap. After all, who in their right minds would send a Death Eater's son to a Dark Arts school? Determined to leave the war behind and make amends, Draco ends up on a desperate quest to end the cycle of brilliant wizards corrupted.
    Pansy and Blaise are doing their absolute damnedest to survive the eighth year at Hogwarts as the last two Slytherins left in the school.
    Harry and Company just want to move on and finish their year. But old habits die hard, and soon the survivors of the Wizarding War find themselves tangled up in a desperate race to make amends, right wrongs, run away, and figure out what exactly Malfoy is plotting.
    This fic is vaguely inspired by the Russian folkloric tale Koschei The Deathless.

    Summary

    He should have seen it coming, but he hadn’t. An attack from behind with a blunt object in an area with virtually no witnesses, what a way to get taken from the streets. How inconspicuous, a white van trailing your every turn. He had to give credit where it was due, however. A van, sure. A van with steel plating and sound-proof walls? That took effort.

    Summary

    “So,” he starts, and Jimin turns towards him, still munching on a piece of bacon. “You’re not, like, vegan? I mean, you’re technically a plant, right?”

    “No. I mainly get my sustenance from sunlight and water, but in this form, I can make do with anything, even meat.” Jimin explains.

    “Right,” he says, and because he was giving out his all on acting like an idiot—“And that’s not cannibalism or anything?”

    “What?” Jimin asks, choking on a piece of bread.

    “I mean, bread’s technically made of wheat, and wheat’s a plant so—”

     

    Or: Jeongguk somehow speaks to trees. Jimin is a tree nymph. (loosely based off Patrick Ness’ ‘A Monster Calls’ and The Little Prince. First part of my ‘old gods rising’ series.)

    Summary

    The Midoriyas’ mushroom cottage up the hill was a peaceful little place; away from social ridicule, and also, quite boring – until Inko and her son were tasked with hiding a Witch in their home. Things get more complicated when the boy decides to bring home a wolf too big for its size. While outcasts get to know one another, a great evil slowly makes its way through the woods. //Medieval/Fantasy/Fairy tale Alternate Universe//

    Summary

    Suddenly, gloriously, Dex was there, skidding in like like he was dumping someone off the puck and grabbed Derek by the back of his hoodie. He tugged and nearly slipped over, Derek scrabbling his feet against the ice to try and get some traction to help Dex haul him backwards.

    “Fuck off!” Dex yelled, which was so startlingly him that Derek nearly burst into hysterical laughter.
