    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

    He went back the only available seat next to curly haired guy. Stiles subtly cleared his throat. The guy was sitting in the aisle seat, wearing earbuds, looking at his phone, and his blue backpack was on the seat next to him. The only way it could be more clear that a seatmate was unwelcome was if he physically removed the window seat from the train.

    And, judging by the glare he was shooting Stiles, that option hadn't been ruled out entirely.

    "Can I sit here?"

    The guy pulled out one earbud, "What?" he asked.

    "Can I sit here?" Stiles repeated. The guy didn't move, and Stiles mouth ran off without him. "You know, common courtesy, shared space. All that."

    Summary

    After royally screwing up, Izaya is admitted to a behavior hospital by his parents, and given the ultimatum that this is his last chance. He believes them. So he promises to actually try to get better this time.
    All he has to do is avoid pestering his new therapist until he quits, not start wars in the ward, and refrain from antagonize any of the other patients. Which, for Izaya, is all easier said than done.
    Especially when some of the other patients on the ward are hell bent on making his life a living nightmare. One in particular.
    What's a mentally unstable, almost-adult to do? Besides avoid the resident sociopath, that is.

    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.

    he wouldn’t mind letting the light from this sun blind him.

    or
     
    namjoon has photophobia and hoseok is the sun

    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

    Five years after the war, a plumpening Hermione resigns from the ministry to begin teaching at Hogwarts. Severus Snape is surprisingly alive, and has returned to do research at the school. Even more surprisingly... he's also put on over ten stone.

    Now the burden of an entire nation is no longer on his shoulders, it seems that much of that weight has slipped and settled around his middle. Suffering serious moodswings, he has a love-hate relationship with his body (and his burgeoning sexual renaissance). As he and Hermione orbit into a passionate relationship, who else in the castle will notice the changes he's been through? Will Hermione be enough to satisfy his long-starved soul? Will Hermione be strong enough to support a severely depressed partner AND maintain her own mental health? SS/Adult!HG Romance with multiple consensual branching-off relationships / poly flair.

    Post-DH, EWE. FAT KINK - GLUTTONY KINK - FEEDERISM / FEEDING KINK. This fic sexualizes obese humans that enjoy eating ridiculous amounts of food for various psychological reasons, including the glorification of gluttony. That being said, this fic strives to be highly inclusive, also representing fat bodies doing more 'normal' fun sexy stuff.
