    Summary

    “Try a piece of yuanyuan bread,” Lan Wangji read aloud, tracing the double gold characters for hope on the package. “Do you know what this means, Ge? I thought this was supposed to be pumpkin bread.”

    Lan Xichen laughed. “It is. But from what I have gathered, double-hope bread is any kind made with the help of the baker’s children. The handprints are his son’s.”

    Intrigued, Lan Wangji turned the loaf over and squinted at the fine print on the bottom.

    “They have a dine-in bakery in Hubei,” he noted. “Lotus Pier Bakery, run by Jiang Yanli.”

    (Or: the one where Wei Wuxian owns a bakery, and Lan Wangji falls in love at first bite.)

    Summary

    Spoilers for The Hanged Man by ellispark.

    Dean is hanged after his plans for mutiny and escape from the cult he was raised in are found out, but survives as he is discovered just in time by a park ranger with blue eyes and PTSD. He later learns that the cult's leader, his father Samuel Campbell, and his mother Deanna are actually his grandparents, and Samuel abducted him from a supermarket as a child to get back at his daughter Mary for leaving him. The seeds of revolution that Dean managed to sow before his attempted execution help Deanna and the half of the camp not loyal to Samuel escape. Reunited with both his biological families as well as finding a new one in Cas and Bobby at the Park, Dean has everything he needs to make a new beginning. Except escaping his past may not be as simple as refusing to look back at it, and though Dean might not live in an apocalypse shelter in the middle of the forest anymore, something tells him he isn't yet out of the woods.

    An analysis of complicity, and of the grey space between victimhood and monstrosity where the bystander will go to die. Basically my love letter to what is undoubtedly one of the finest thrillers i have read this year, please do check that out.

    Summary

    There is no healing, there is not ever going to be enough time to mourn for a loss you never prepared yourself for. There are only the steady gears of life moving along, creaking as the rust falls over the surface and creeping against each hidden part of yourself like a permanently staining shadow. 

    As years go by, you grow to forget. But forgetting isn’t healing.

    Summary

    "I swear, I'll catch my death following you."

    "Then why follow me?"

    This is a sequel work to the events in Little Witch Academia, except instead of centering around everyone's favorite accident-prone witch, it centers around everyone's favorite handsome viscount: Andrew Hanbridge. This is a tale of honor, friendship, and love. Through high school, college, and beyond, we follow our dear Andrew through all of his adventures. Andrew is my muse and quite possibly the love of my life, and this fanfiction is dedicated to him and to everyone else who loves him.
    Nota Bene: This fanfiction is riddled with references to other things. If you spot one that you know, you win points. The points are utterly worthless, but you get the joy of participating.
