    Summary

    Three Reasons to Read:

    Hermione, survivor:
    "Fuck my skin," Hermione mumbled, reaching again for her pack of Belomors. She remembered the kind soldiers who had given her a pack on the night that she had learned how many people had died in the nuclear war Voldemort started. She had wandered away from where the British wizard refugees were staying, crying, horrified at her failure. The cancer-sticks were a sort of self-flagellation that had brought her comfort on that night, and she'd never looked back.

    Bellatrix, wondering about her priorities:
    For a moment, Bellatrix’s life, the screams, the abuse, the loveless marriage, the murders, the tortures, the fourteen years in Azkaban, the baby born in her sister’s house, the nukes, the wars, she could see all of it. But especially, most of all, she could see Delphini. She could see her daughter, who would be an orphan exactly like the Dark Lord.

    A choice:
    “Michael’s Coup. When Romania changed sides, the outcome of the war against Hitler was not yet decided. It opened the entire southern flank and allowed the success of the Jassy-Kishinev Offensive to turn into an absolutely devastating strategic blow to the Nazi Empire,” Hermione explained.

    Summary

    Lio is the god of Fire in the Greek-like city of Promepolis tasked with keeping Fennel Volcano from destroying everything. He had long accepted his fate until one day he finds Galo Thymos being brought to him. Something is wrong with this picture

    A mythology/deity inspired AU

    For those wary on some topics, there is a thwarted sacrifice and Lio has a primarily monster design. Kray Foresight gives flavor to the plot, and there is a happy ending.

    Summary

    Hermes darted down on impulse.

    “Wait! I think I can help you out,” he offered, stopping just before the apparition.

    This wasn't any different than helping a stranded shepherd or traveler, right? He answered their prayers all the time. This was just another lost soul, literally. He wasn’t infringing any boundaries by doing this. Probably.

    Summary

    "Eons ago, before the Present time, there was a prophecy. One that would announce the deaths of the Olympians at the hand of a God Killer. There was someone said to stop this God Killer, a powerful half-blood hero. A Nephilim child. But what if he didn't want to save the Olympians, what if he knew how they acted like and what if he only thing cared about was keeping what he had, safe from harm"

    Or in other words, how not every person with superpowers has to be a demigod or be a legacy of the gods.

    Well....at least the Greek Gods...

    Summary

    Gaia Nereida Thomas had thought her adventure had ended when she finished moving to Japan from St.Thomas, V.I. and settled down with her Mom in Tokyo. Only to then discover that Fate, as always, had a different view on that hot take. Little did she know, that once she got pulled down that well with Kagome, so would the wool around her eyes be pulled down with her. She will quickly, and harshly, discover that the world, family, and people she thought she knew, hadn't been as honest as she thought.

    It's not just the Shikon Jewel shards she will have to piece together.

    Summary

    The King breathes a delighted laugh, and he looks at you like he’s starving for whatever he sees in you when he focuses his pale eyes. You find yourself having to school your features to keep your mouth from smiling back because even if it hurts, even if it claws at your insides with shame and promises of failure; admitting your darkness somehow makes you a little freer, like you have just let go of an old wreath of flowers.

    “Your blood is that of the Greeks’, Priestess, but your heart is like ours.”

    This is a retelling/romantization of the Greek myth of Persephone’s abduction with Ivar as Hades and you as Persephone. The Reader character is a Greek/Byzantine woman, follower of the Greek Pantheon/Religion, and a devoted follower of Persephone. This takes place around the time (to take into account character ages) of season 5a-b, but ignores most of the canon past season 4b (I want everyone to be happy, okay?)

    Summary

    "What would you do to save them?" purred Abraxus.
    "Anything," said Kim Seokjin.

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Death has been killed, and his usurper has taken to playing with human souls.

    In one part of Seoul, seven boys—once best friends—have been reunited by inexplicable circumstances. Memories that never happened and pain that should never have been draw them closer as they fight to escape their fates.

    On the other side of the city, another group of old friends comes together to discover that maybe they aren’t human at all. Maybe a greater purpose has been given them, something they can only truly understand by passing through the gateway into the Midworld: a land between life and death, where monsters lurk in the shadows and greatness waits for those who will take it.

    The battle between monsters and men grows stronger while the loop threatens to reset at any mistake. Does any happiness await them at the end, or will the false Death keep their souls forever?

    Summary

    What if a Norse guardian, sworn to protect and uphold her duties, fell in love when she was not meant to. The Hamingja was like any other guardian angel for all the descendants she protected over the centuries, till the day her journey brought her to a place she would never forget. To a man, she would come to love and a tragic death she could not bear. This Hamingja defied the Norns and weaved her own fate, a fate that could change everything. Odin was more than happy to oblige his little spirit and perhaps bring happiness and luck to those who's fates did not.

    Summary

    Bedworth, Massachusetts seemed like it was dying. The buildings are crumbling, the fields are rotting, and strange graffiti litters the sides of buildings. Even the habitable center of the wretched town seems like a poor skin graft resting over a festering wound, threatening to corrupt it.

    Marina Lhu, 11, can't understand why her parents brought her here. Of course, they came to fix up the old asylum on the hill, being the respectable doctor and psychiatrist that they were. It wasn't as though she had a say in anything, not even when they moved in with her mute mechanic uncle and her creepy twin cousins who found it hilarious to scare her.

    But then, everything changes when she accompanies her parents up to Ashray Asylum and finds a sentient disembodied head in a jar. He warns her of "some big things in the works," and if she wants to remain alive, then she should listen to him.

    [While this isn't strictly in line with the Cthulhu Mythos, there are some references to it, as well as other horror franchises. Some are more obvious than others, of course.]

    If you don't like it, or its format, don't read it.

    Summary

    Ever since he had been turned into a vampire, Sakusa Kiyoomi lived through a large number of events.

    Over the centuries, he witnessed the birth of theater, experienced a lord’s life, watched the eradication of half of Europe’s population, painted his way through a cultural revolution, survived one of the deadliest conflicts in history, and became a professional volleyball player.

    There was one common thing between them all, someone whose soul remained the same and repeatedly found its way back to Kiyoomi regardless of time.


    Or, five times Sakusa Kiyoomi met Miya Atsumu through history and had to watch him go. And one time he made him stay.

    Summary

    [Opis całej historii]
    Kiedy Morana pojawiła się w Hogwarcie, nikt nie miał wątpliwości, że wszystko jest w porządku. Tylko Severus Snape swoim instynktem byłego śmierciożercy wyczuł wiszący nad nią cień, ale nawet on zignorował ostrzeżenie, poddając się czemuś, czego nawet nie chciał zrozumieć. Choć uparty głos nieustannie go ostrzegał, nie dopuszczał do siebie wątpliwości tak długo, aż w końcu było już za późno.

    W czasach długo wyczekiwanego spokoju mrok zawisł nad Anglią, doprowadzając do wydarzeń, które zmieniły więcej, niż ktokolwiek mógł przypuszczać. Bo właśnie wtedy, gdy czarodziejski świat łapał oddech po upadku Czarnego Pana, w ciszy, zupełnie nieoczekiwanie, zbudziły się najgorsze demony.

    Demony, które nosimy w sobie.

    There comes a moment when you know that nothing will ever be the same again. For Tony Stark that moment started with a deceptively bland agent breaking into his tower and ended with him taking a suicide dive through a magic portal to blow up an alien army. So, just a regular Tuesday.

    Summary

    In the aftermath of the War of the Ninepenny Kings, Branda Stark, daughter of a mountain clanswoman and a wandering wolf, finds herself wedding a relatively minor lord of the Stormlands, while her more demure younger sister is betrothed to their cousin Rickard, heir to Winterfell. While Branda finds love and happiness in her 'lesser' match, taking up residence at the mysterious Amberly, Aerys Targaryen takes the throne, Rickard Stark begins to dream of a southern alliance, and Branda's adventurous children, always in the shadow of their prideful cousins, find themselves scattered across a realm edging closer and closer to civil war.
