    Summary

    There's a place hidden deep in the wildest parts of the Scottish Highlands where spring never comes.

    A nameless mountain looms large over the landscape, and all that falls within its shadow is eternally winter-bound.

    Or so the story goes.

    Whether a curse or a quirk of nature, the fact remains that the village of Hogsmeade has not seen a summer in more than five hundred years.

    But of course, no rational-minded person in this day and age would believe in things like curses.

    Eighteen-year-old Harry Potter has just moved to Hogsmeade with his family. His parents, Lily and James, both scientists who study weather patterns, are intrigued by the meteorological puzzle Hogsmeade presents. Harry and his two younger sisters are somewhat less enthusiastic.

    Harry himself is at a crossroads in life, having decided to take a gap year before going to uni. No longer a child, but also not quite ready to become an adult.

    When he meets a strange young man named Tom Riddle, Harry’s life changes in ways he couldn’t have possibly imagined.

    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

    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

    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

    "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."

Taehyung is the 21st century reincarnation of the late monkey king Goku and likes to fuck around promiscuously until a stern Jungkook appears out of nowhere to discipline Taehyung into a state of miserable submission. Jin is an exotic nine-tailed fox that consumes the hearts of the men that he had seduced but for some reason he finds himself unable to fathom the thought of killing a sturdy man named Namjoon who has been harbouring the kindest of intentions. Amidst all the complications associated with the three demons, Hoseok is the Jade Emperor so done with watching all of Yoongi, Taehyung and Jin's bullshit from heaven contemplating how he gon reincarnate all these trouble-making fellas out of his own universe.

    Summary

    "Now come rest your head on my lap.”

    You quirked a brow at your husband as he moved to sit with his back to the headboard. The God and King was about as subtle as a blow from Stormbreaker.

    “Really wife, get your mind out of the gutter,” Thor teased, patting his leg. “I mean only to help you relax.”

    “Mhm,” You murmured, suspicious though you moved towards him anyway.

    “Don't you think if that were my intention I might come up with a better way to go about it?”

    Your cheek twitched in a wan smile as you lay curled on your side, your head pillowed by his mighty thigh. “With you, elskede, there is no telling.”

    You can deal with this. You can handle whatever else this universe had to throw at you. All you had to do now was show people that your being special and famous and, damn, some kind of savior, didn’t mean you didn’t have normal wizard problems.
