    Summary

    Allura Altea-Smythe is autistic. She struggles with social interaction, preferring to read and study rather than form friendships. Plagued by bullies slating her disability and her dads’ relationship, she grew to hate school.

    But sixth form proves to be a welcome change: Allura meets Katie Holt. Katie is kind and supportive, and proves to be the sort of person Allura has always wanted to know. Although she does begin to wonder if Katie’s feelings for her are not just platonic.

    But as Allura finally starts to feel like she fits in, her once stable family life is crumbling around her. Her ill father takes a drastic turn for the worse, her dads argue all the time, and her brother has a secret that threatens to damage the already fragile family relationship.

    Unable to cope with the changes, Allura is drawn to Katie and her ‘normal’ family. But when she discovers that Katie’s family life is not as it appears, she begins to wonder whether or not a traditional family is as important as many others think, and if who you are, rather than what you are, is really what matters.

    Summary

    Another foster home. That's all Tony saw this as. He didn't think kids got to go to back into fostering after group homes. But here he was, walking up the steps to another weird family with three other weird kids.

    So, no, he doesn't see anything coming out of this. They'll ship him off in four to five months just like all the others. They'll get annoyed and find him too wound-up even if he tries really hard not to be, just like all the others. They'll call him stupid, too, just like all the others. He's sure if it.

    And then these people do the craziest thing and... don't.

    Updates every Tuesday!

    Summary

However, he's determined to save his team, and beat Altea University's biggest rival--Galra Tech--in the biggest Quidditch tournament of the region.

    Summary

    “That’s me,” he says, and that’s when Kyungsoo notices the curl of his tail peeking out behind his back.

    Kyungsoo is both a polite man and a master of understated reactions, line of vision quickly tripping down from the fur to Junmyeon’s denim jacket, to their hands as they shake. Hands? Paws?

    Summary

    Alex learned to play the drums when they were very young, and the sound could shoot through the stuffy auditorium like a persistent heartbeat, screaming, thick wet Alive, the veins all singing - they started playing then because their teachers thought it might help them focus their energy.

    Summary

    Garrus Vakarian in canon seemed personally enraged about Saren's actions on Eden Prime. A colony slaughtered. A Spectre dead. Geth, everywhere. He dropped everything to see justice done when the opportunity presented itself. That's not normal, not unless the losses and betrayals were personal.

    Maybe they were. Maybe... they were *very* personal.

    Begins the tale of Mass Effect just a little early, starting in 2167. T minus 16 years until Eden Prime. A story of talented people who aren't exactly whole inside, but find some of the missing pieces in the warm regard of unexpected friends.

    Caffeine addictions. Spectre missions. Boring council meetings. C-Sec. The people behind the legends, and bullets. Many, many bullets...

    Summary

    Alternately titled "In Which Tony Has All the Author's Health Problems Because He Has Half of Them in Canon Anyway"

    A character study/exploration of the canonical health issues Tony is faced with throughout his life, plus a few more I threw in because a) I identify strongly with Tony and shoved all my problems onto him for stress-relief; and b) having had a lot of his canonical health problems myself (i.e. anxiety, PTSD, heavy metal poisoning, insomnia), it made sense for certain things to be happening behind the scenes, things a normal audience wouldn't have the context to realize just from watching the movies.

    Heed the warnings—should you read this, you will know a LOT more about what chronic illness is like, and what sort of mindset it engenders, than you probably ever wanted to know.

    Summary

    “God Tetsuya, why are you like this?”

    He knows it’s a rhetorical question said with exasperation and fondness, but he still spares a second to seriously consider an answer. And after a brief moment of contemplation, he comes to a conclusion, ‘I have a deeply rooted fear of dependency because I’ve been taught that most comforts are temporary – a mindset which has been reinforced by my time in Teiko.’ But instead of sharing this insight he shrugs; a gesture which goes unseen.

    Or,

    The death of his grandmother sparks a series of life-altering events. Tetsuya has to hit the bottom before he allows anyone to pull him back to the surface.

    Summary

    Bethany Hawke did not choose the life of a Grey Warden. For her, it was not a Calling, a desire or something she wanted in life. She had dreams of princes and silk dresses. Of freedom and being normal.

    "Being a Grey Warden is not a cure. It is a calling." That's what Stroud told her sister, and yet Hawke gave her to the corruption thinking it would save her. Of course the Taint never saved anyone - what a foolish notion.

    Now Bethany must endure what the Maker has given her in life whether she wants it or not, but the thought is always there in her head - "What if I can't?"

    Summary

    Maybe it was his demeanor, that dash of cocky confidence mixed in with humility and naiveté? More likely, I thought, a decade-plus of repressed wants and needs were finally bubbling beyond the point I could control them, and they just happened to reach a breaking point as this mystery man came into town. Bad timing on his part, I scoffed internally.
