    Summary

    Blue’s desperation was a series of ocean waves crashing unrelenting into the beach, her fear a stark, deadly cold. Her anger was a river tumbling through its ravine, slamming into rock with a force that carved mountains.

    She couldn’t protect her Paladin.

    Pidge looked into the huge yellow eye that angled down at them. It bored into her.

    Her strength, her speed, her skills-- none of it would help.

    She felt Blue’s terror, her helpless anguish.

    None of it mattered.

    Pidge pushed harder, but more blood seeped through her fingers.

    ______________

    Pidge had first come to space to find two people she loved. Instead, with the loss of Shiro, her list of people to save is only growing longer.

    How can she move forward when she's been pushed so far back? How does she hold her world together, when it just keeps falling apart?

    Set between seasons 2 and 3.

    Summary

    Modern AU: Hawke's name might almost be funny if it weren't quite so true, but through such accuracy and tragedy she's led towards family she never expected to find, towards healing and salvation she never could have believed she'd ever deserve.

    This story is centred around neurodivergence and broad mental health issues, and how powerfully music can affect tones, moods, and lives is a strong theme, as well. Warnings will always be placed in the tags, which will be updated as needed, as well as in the beginning notes of each chapter, even at the cost of potential spoilers when it comes to that.

    Summary

    Bucky Barnes has finally come home.

    A year and a half after the events on the helicarriers, desperate for a safe haven and a chance to finally rest, Bucky takes Steve at his word and returns to the dilapidated row house in Brooklyn where he and Steve once lived.

    Room by room, he slowly starts to fix up the house as he works on his own recovery, while Steve starts to circle closer and closer. It's not easy; it was never going to be easy, and as Steve and Bucky draw even closer to each other in their dance, there are new steps to learn and old wounds to heal.

    But nothing has ever been able to stop these two boys from Brooklyn, and as they start to share food, trips to Home Depot, late night runs and eventually laughter, it turns out that Bucky isn't the only one who needs help healing.

    That's only if Steve can get Bucky to believe in himself and the life they have started to build together, and convince Bucky to stay.

    Summary

    There can be worse things, Rey supposes, than being stuck in this English Romantic Poetry class. Professor Ren—or if you prefer, Professor Byron—is dark, moody, and mysterious. But they run into each other constantly, blessed by fate or sheer luck, and she can no longer deny that there's something inside of both of them that only the other can understand.

    Or: Romantic poetry and conversations over black coffee. Dark and light, parchment and leather, push and pull. A companionship borne through snippets. And eventually: how to face the past.

    Summary

    "I take it introductions aren't your forte."

    "I take it you get threatened with knives often." Will countered, and Hannibal's mouth did the strange little quirk again that implied a smile, but didn't answer.

    Summary

    The sun was bearing down on the park, on Andrew, on Neil Josten’s sketch, his auburn hair and blue, blue, blue eyes.

    After a dozen tries, Andrew clicked through his photos. All the way to the first one. The one where Neil was staring straight at the camera.

    Andrew’s breath caught.

    Summary

    A night out with your roommates' sorority sounded like a good way to wind down from exams season, but your good intentions to keep from ruining someone's nice carpet have you end up in the middle of the forest. In the middle of the night. Very, very drunk.

    Good thing you found a random house to sidle up to and ask to use their phone. Less of a good thing that the skeleton monster that lives in it is only placated by your sloppy jokes.

    -

    Eventually going to culminate in a "Six Skeletons" sort of set-up, but you don't get off as easy by knowing Classic Sans first.

    Summary

    Shun and Yuya are alone in caring for their terminally ill younger sister, Ruri, after their parents disappear. However, when Ruri dies during a trip to the zoo, she is magically brought back to life by a mysterious hippo hat. The hat possesses her and orders the brothers to find the Hippodrum, if they want Ruri's miracle to continue.

    Although neither of them have any idea what the Hippodrum even is, there's no way they're going to let their sister die. Together, and along with a mysterious cast all tied together by the same long ago terrorist incident, they will search for the true meaning of the Hippodrum, and decide what it is that they want to protect most of all.

    Summary

    The one where uninspired chef Dean Winchester has a one night stand with the male (!) food critic who described the flavour of his garlic bread as 'closeted' and accidentally ends up dating him to try and prove that he's a kick ass chef, thank you very much.

    (He may have a point about the 'closeted' thing).
