    Summary

    He couldn’t bear to see another tortured soul be crushed. He didn’t want to put himself through that. He had seen the way husband’s howled over the bodies of their wives. Children squawking for lost parents and dogs roaming aimlessly for an owner they’d never find. It was easier this way. But why was this young man cracking the very foundation he fought so hard to maintain?

    Summary

    This began as a pre-Overwatch, military backstory for Jack and Gabe, and has grown into something rather larger than I initially intended. This story is meant to run as closely parallel to the official canon as possible, as far as it has been revealed. It will eventually catch up with the game chronologically and will likely surpass it, in which case, it will obviously become canon-divergent. The characters I have written are necessarily far more complex and fully fleshed-out than the game characters are able to be, due to the mode of play and paucity of lore surrounding the game's narrative. As such, they should be treated only as an artist's interpretation, not as by-the-book facsimiles (meaning that they will likely diverge in some ways from the official canon and some popular fan-canons, and I will not be altering them to suit either). All the events of the story are integral to laying a foundation for the characters' later actions and choices and to demonstrating who they were, relative to who they eventually become. That said, this piece is very sexually explicit, so just to be safe, let's call it good old-fashioned smut.

    Summary

    Qrow Branwen has never asked for much in life. Sure, his sister's in prison and his brother-in-law is a bit of a wreck, his best friend is missing a few limbs and Qrow left a few bits of himself back in Afghanistan... but he has a steady job teaching, a small house, his family and his friends. And if he drinks a little more than the average person, or uses a little something to help him sleep, well - life doesn't turn out all sunshine and roses for people like him.

    Until, that is, the eccentric Ozpin Pine walks into Qrow's life and turns it upside-down.

    Summary

    "In neurospace, nobody can hear you scream."

    ---

    Chris is fresh out of Chicago's police academy with an implant in the back of his neck designed for linking up with AI. Hawker is a 15-foot, 6-ton decommissioned piece of military equipment brought stateside after the nuclear holocaust of the Siberian War. Nobody was expecting Hawker to do anything but beat the living daylights out of every recruit who tried for compatibility with him, what with losing his previous pilot and best friend to a horrific gang fight 4 months before - but Chris finds himself, somehow, approved for training with the HLX-9 Vanguard unit. But the two have dark pasts and things to prove, and everyone at Chicago's 42nd precinct contends with the nagging feeling that Officer Chris Celn will either wind up out the door one of these days, or worse: in a body bag.

    This is the story of a twink pilot and his giant, metal, Kevlar Daddy and how they save the world, one post-WW3 Chicago at a time.

    Summary

    [In military science, Force Multiplication is an attribute or a combination of attributes that multiplies the effectiveness of a soldier or weapon, giving a small number of troops or individuals the ability to accomplish greater tasks than without it.]

    Jack Morrison is 26, just completed the first half of his Special Forces "Q-Course," and just got airdropped to a secret base in the snowy mountains of Idaho along with the other "supersoldier candidates."

    [Common force multipliers are: terrain, geographical features, weather]

    He doesn't really know how to feel about his new "number" (76) or the fact that he's joined a program that will "genetically and phenotypically modify him, as well as train him extensively, to survive better against the bots."

    [Training and experience]

    He never thought he was particularly "special" (though he'll be the first to admit he's always hoped for an adventure worthy of legend).

    [Tactics and intelligence]

    And he thought SEP would just be more training

    [Morale]

    Until he met "Soldier: 24"

    [Friends]

    Gabriel Reyes

    [Inspiration]

    And Jack experienced a revelation

    And they changed the course of history.

    Summary

    Eames hasn’t spent much of his life thinking about what Arthur gets up to in his free time, but he sincerely doubts it usually involves getting strung up from ceilings by his wrists and electrocuted.

    For an incredibly brief but entirely legitimate two seconds, Eames considers burning the images and getting back in bed. However, it would be rude not to do something about Arthur’s predicament and at the end of the day, Eames’ mother never let rudeness slide.

    Or guns at the table, but that’s another matter entirely.

    **

    Eames is thirty-six years old.

    He has been a dream forger for eleven years.

    He has four permanent addresses and lives nowhere.

    **
    A story about wasting time and making up for it again.

    Summary

    “My parents left for Blackwater before war broke out. They thought they could try to mediate things.” He sighs. “They died when Aerys had everyone in the Red Keep murdered just before he bombed Casterly and blew up half of the city. I like to think they’d be proud of what I did of the family heirloom.” He glances at the ceiling, then back down to the ground. “I don’t know. But I tried my best.”

    “I can see that.” Theon says nothing for the next few minutes, then a hand touches Robb’s wrist tentatively as he gifts Robb one of those small, real smiles of his. “And you’re doing better than you think.”

    “I’ll let you believe that for the both of us,” Robb smiles back, and thinks that out of everything, he doesn’t regret having picked him, nor having gone back to Harlaw even if he was told he was a waste of time.

    He really doesn’t.

    Or: in which Robb Stark has take a hard decision to ensure the survival of his people after five years stranded in outer space, deal with his feelings for his best friend and second in command and try to lead what's left of the people who once lived on Westeros's nine planets to a better life before their resources run out.
