    Summary

    “I bet,” Hob starts speaking, and he just knows he’s going to say something he might regret later, “that you’d find my food appealing. I’ve had so much time to perfect my recipes.”

    Really?” Dream’s got that glint in his eyes. He sits up, drawing his feet back and leaning in.

    “Yes. One of these times I’ll invite you over, and I’ll cook for you,” Hob promises.

    Alright, Hob,” Dream says.

    “Deal? Damn, I’ll have to clean my place for you,” Hob laughs.

    ◉◈◉◈◉

    Death sets up her emotionally constipated brother and a peasant from the middle ages. Dream doesn’t care for peasants. Hob’s enjoying the benefits of immortality. Neither of them realize just how much they’ve been in each other’s lives. A slow-burn for the ages, featuring twink himbo Dream and a surprisingly emotionally mature Hob Gadling. Be forewarned: both of them are stupid--and in love.

    Summary

    Yoon Soo-Hyun is just minutes too late to prevent Kim Ga-On from attacking Do Yung-Choon outside the courthouse.

    Kim Ga-On spends three years in prison and is released during the worst of the economic crisis. Unable to find “honest” work, he gets a job as an escort.

    Kang Yo-Han hates people, especially in large groups, where they crowd him and make suggestive comments. An escort, he finds, makes an excellent shield against some of the more persistent and inappropriate people he’s forced to socialize with. Escorts follow rules and expectations, at least until he meets Kim Ga-On, who burns with rage underneath his polite exterior and keeps insulting the Foundation’s Directors in a way that’s just subtle enough that they don’t notice – but Kang Yo-Han does, and instantly senses a kindred spirit.

Now he's trapped in a world crawling with zombies and all manner of aliens that want to kill him, tasked with one goal: escape to Tommy's safehouse. The only problem is, he has no idea where to find it, and the only person who can help him is his worst enemy: Benrey. And when they seem more hellbent on fucking with him than helping him, Gordon wonders if they'll ever actually make it to their destination.

    A roadtrip AU in the post apocalypse, featuring zombies, skeletons, and two fucked up idiots learning to love.

    Summary

    Oh God... Was all that was thought when Cyno entered through the door. I mean, it wasn’t everyday that something like this would happen, wait, nevermind scratch that, This happens more often than he would have hoped. Mostly because of his exceeding knowledge about “Why people should start actually using their common sense to keep themselves safe”.

     

    Also Known as:
    Cyno sees Tighnari after he keeps falling asleep at his desk again, and again whenever he visits; Cyno makes it his job to make sure Tighnari looks after himself :)

    Summary

    They both lean forward, and he feels both their lips touch his neck. He registers it as the whispers of a love eons old urging for them to never stop, a familiar sweetness filling their mouths, and they both purr, their mouths and hands stained with Guillermo's blood. They remove their lips from his neck and both let out a sigh. Their heads rest against Guillermo's own and the room seemed to shudder at the sweetness of it.

    “Say it,” Guillermo whispers, voice breaking with need, his breath stuttering, “Say what I taste like.”

    *
    Tensions run high in the household, Guillermo's patience breaks, blood is drunk, and a baby vampire is born. Courtesies to Laszlo and Nandor, of course.

    Summary

    It's been a little over a year since the world almost ended. Aziraphale and Crowley's respective head offices have left them alone and their lives on Earth have been quite pleasant and relatively uneventful since. Until, that is, at the end of a seemingly ordinary day, they become aware that they have inexplicably become human. Crowley adjusts relatively quickly. Aziraphale... takes a bit longer. The new states of being come with ups and downs, discoveries and realizations, and, hopefully, the answers to a few questions.

    Summary

    Time travel. It shouldn’t be possible. Well, theoretically it could be… but actual, REAL time travel… It’s unbelievable.
    ---
    “Ta!”
    Derek spins around, startled by the sudden shout behind him. A man is standing there holding a long stick with a dangerous looking blade on the end. He’s young, twenty-something, and staring straight at Derek. Those eyes are piercing and aware. Derek gulps as he raises his hands in the air. He takes a steadying breath. “You can see me?”
    ---
    Or: Derek time travels, meets a totally awesome guy (if Stiles does say so himself), keeps some secrets, and saves the world.
