    Summary

    Committed to Arkham State Hospital for his violent obsession with rats, Willard Stiles is placed in a room next to the infamous Arthur Fleck.

    It’s been several months since Arthur was arrested for multiple murders. There’s little left of the passive victim he had once been. Something about Willard nabs his interest, and he’s determined to goad the introverted Stiles into reveling in his true nature, rats and all.

    Hunter’s murky past has brought her to Gotham where she takes a job in housekeeping at Arkham. She forms a potentially dangerous bond with Stiles and Fleck and is swept into their escape plan.

    Things are almost too easy for the threesome, since those in charge seem oblivious to their growing relationship. Someone is watching them carefully, though--someone with designs on Joker and an offer that means either freedom or death for the trio.

    Summary

    Shielan’s destiny was preordained. Before she could talk, walk, or cast her first spell, Keeper Deshanna named her the First—a title that came with an arranged marriage and one hell of a lie. So, in the middle of the night, before the halla rose to graze, before the Hunters woke for breakfast — before the scars of her vallaslin had begun to heal — Shielan ran.

    For ten years, she’s survived as a shadow, slipping through the cracks of Thedas in search of a family she knows nothing about. But the truth of Shielan’s origin is far more than she bargained for — and its discovery may be more than she can survive.

    Based on THE HIT twitter thread by @RydingEdvin and @ValterSkarsgard

    Summary

    Assumption: the act of taking control or assuming authority

    One day they would speak of her in admiring tones. “What a remarkable woman!” some would say. And there would come a time when disdainful whispers would dog her every step like dark spectres. “What sort of a woman would do something like that? She should be ashamed of herself!” they would sneer.

    But who are they to judge her when they don’t even know the half of it?

    How did Marisa Coulter become the woman she was? As these things often do, it starts with an unhappy family. (A look at Marisa’s life before the affair, from childhood to her time at St Sophia’s.)

    NOTE: You don’t have to read Part 1 (Asriel’s backstory) in order to follow the events in this story.

    Summary

    The year is 1996. A hungry young orphan "caterpillar" with nowhere else to go enters a very special school, and seven years later, a deadly "butterfly" emerges from that chrysalis of dark knowledge to find her place in the world... and a name of her own. Rated T for the time being, but that might be subject to change.

    Summary

    The second story in the Becoming Benedict Bridgerton series, this story opens with Sophie Beckett as a child. Her story has many major changes that fans of the books/television series will notice immediate. In this alternate origin story, Sophie is a child of mixed race and never lives with her father or stepfamily. In Regency England, money could buy many things and one of those things was a place to hide problems.

    Miss Sophie Beckett was a problem and her father's solicitor placed her at Mrs. Taylor's School for Girls in the country. At this school, she learned to read, figure, and write. She also learned that society was not kind to bastards, even ones born to an Earl. The only light in her life came from a woman who would visit occasionally.

    When the chance to attend a masquerade came up, Sophie thought all her dreams were coming true.

    Doing a new version of the original Cyrus run, I'm feeling back into his mood and I hope I can get some better stories this time!

    Chapters 1-6: Cyrus breaks free from the Special Directive, becoming a vigilante to protect the first human to show him kindness. Even if it means putting his life on the line to face an old monster.

    Chapters 7-14: Wanting to learn more about the hero scene, Sidestep meets Owl, Sparrow, and Overlord, becoming entangled in their personal drama, while becoming Charge's sidekick.

    Chapters 15-19: Cyrus begins getting closer to the rangers. Meanwhile, Psychopathor causes a spectacular prison riot and escapes, setting dozens of other dangerous villains free.

    Chapter 20-?: Cyrus are now friends and perhaps soon to be more than that.
