    Summary

    Lee Minho can't be crowned the picnic packer of the century, but he sure does make a mean charcuterie board, packed with tiny crackers he'd bought on sale and cheeses that were priced so high he gets a pressure headache even thinking about them. He's not the master of outdoor lunches, but he's damn lucky that Jisung is so easily impressed. Or in love with him. Maybe it's both.

    --

    In which Minho takes Jisung to a botanical garden.

    Summary

    Midoriya Izuku used to worship heroes. He wanted to be one, but he didn't have a quirk. This is how the normal anime goes, right?
    But what if his mother was an administrator at a hero agency, and what if he actually put in work to be a hero beforehand thanks to a radio interview? What if he took off the rose-tinted glasses he somehow has? And, more importantly, what if he has a Death Note?
    or:
    Midoriya Izuku loses his hero worship, but gains a Death Note.

    P.S: You don't need to read/watch either Death Note to read this. Obviously watch/read it, it's good and it's more context, but you can still enjoy it :)

    Summary

    Shouyou wonders what the people watching him go by would think if they knew. You see that one guy, Japan’s top scorer? I once played a game against him and won. You see the one making his Olympic debut before he’s even turned twenty? After matches, we would walk home together. He doesn’t like to hold hands but he likes to pull you close. We’d walk with our arms knotted together and stars dotting the sky. It always smelled of cherry trees.

    Kageyama must be on top of the world, right now. Shouyou isn’t there with him. 

    It feels bittersweet, in a way. He’s not there, but he will be. Just because he took a detour doesn’t mean he’s stopped running; he might be taking the long way home, but he’ll get there when the time is right. He made a promise, after all. 

    He sends Kageyama a text. I saw you today. You were amazing.

    Then he races.

     

    Or, Hinata Shouyou takes the long way home. Featuring the universal experience of being other, untranslatable words, Carnival-induced catharsis, and of course, hunger.

    Summary

    A coming of age story, childhood and recent trauma, relationships and their struggles, ghosts, and answering the question do you really think that friendships can last more than one lifetime?

     

    “The thing about Aang was that he always knew how to have fun. No matter the situation, circumstances, or even where they were; he would always find a way to at least enjoy himself. Even if something tragic were to happen to him--which it has--he would find the bright side to it. And that really pissed Zuko off. (Uncle would like him though. Uncle did like him.)”

    Summary


    Izuku has been a vigilante for a few months and this is the first time he's dared to let his guard down even a little bit. Eraserhead is a good hero, he knows. It's just a matter of whether he's a good person for Izuku.

     

    (The answer to that, of course, is that he is. In fact, he's the best.)

    Summary

    When Kozume Kenma attended an imperial assembly, he did not expect to become a new minister. Likewise, when Kuroo Tetsurou intervened with an ambush, he did not expect to become a general. Neither of them expected to be anything more than fellow acquaintances.

    As a peasant, Kuroo’s presence brings unwanted attention from the all-noble court, but gratitude isn’t the only reason why Emperor Oikawa recruited him. Soon enough, Kenma is forced from his detached way of life and thrust into a deadly game of political strategy where he has to survive schemes, conspiracies, all while attempting to keep his feelings for his new general at bay.

    Drabbles and ficlets to meet Kinktober prompts. I intend to have fun with this!
    Also I refuse to commit to doing them in order as prompted, because ADHD. I need to ride the creative wave however I can, and out of order is fun and subversive. =)

    Summary

    ★ OT3 Story started in 2017; Hogwild Tags(™)

    ❅ Chapter 76 (GENTLY NSFW): "Lucid Dreaming."
    Samantha Rosalyn Floravale did not possess a tongue reminiscent of any precious metal, nor a zeal for spoken language. But for Aymeric, she spun her best impression of an Echo; an aged recollection on the trip to Anyx Trine.

    "He was not the most appealing of companions.”

    -
    ✦ SPOILERS! Heavensward, future to (~4.56). Chapter One = T.o.C./Warnings.

    Tale of INTENSE emotional triangulation between WoL, Estinien, and Aymeric. BLM/WHM finds love in Ishgard, every azure facet. Multi-POV. Slow burn and past romance(s), family dynamics, friendship. Fluff, smut, angst, repeat! Follows/expands on MSQ. Adult (18+) writing.

    ★ Adult writing; marked "E" for Ch. 31, 41, 47-48, 55, 61-63, 68-73, 75.

    ✧ ☄ ☽

    Foul and flare, frost and fire. Within her dwelt both shadow, and light.

    Aching moments in the Mists, two creatures of rime.
    Warmed then, in Ishgard—thawed and kindled full aflame—

    Tenuous faith ... Stillness, calm and blinding ...
    A love to drown and smother three splinters of stardust:
    — a blaze, a comet, a constellation.

    ☾ ☄ ✧

    Summary

    “I’ve told the plants what I think about sssspotss!” Crowley hisses, savage. “It had one job to do, and it messssed it up. It has to be punished. It should have done better. It’s a disssappointment and a failure and a worthlesss—”
    He breaks off, seeing Aziraphale staring at him, too-perceptive eyes wide and comprehending and horror-stricken.
    “No. No. Never worthless,” the angel breathes.

    ~ ~ ~

    Aziraphale walks in on Crowley and his houseplants.
