    Summary


    A woman awakens in a strange and unfamiliar body to find herself in the dangerous realm of Eorzea, with no knowledge of who she is or how she got there. When she meets an oddly-familiar, heroic traveler teaching an obscure, mystical sword art, she joins him in a series of escapades and humorous misadventures to learn his unusual style of magic, help him solve a mystery from his past, and regain her memories.

    Who will likely enjoy this story the most:
    Anyone who grooved to "The Guardians of the Galaxy Awesome Mix vol. 1", got most of the references in "Ready Player One", and was disappointed by "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies".

    Who will get the most authentic experience from it:
    Anyone who hasn't played FFXIV before and/or has a hazy memory when it comes to movies and other popular culture from the past 8 decades. If this is you, just go with it. Hope you're comfortable with recurring déjà vu.

    Summary

    “She seemed nice,” said Edward.

    “Nice? Nice? She was—she is a vision!” George was trying very hard not to be sent into transports at merely the sight of the back of Miss Foxley’s neck from a distance of some yards away, as she retreated. “I knew tonight would be special! Didn’t I say so?”

    “You say that before every ball, in order to get us to go, and it never is,” John pointed out. “Last week a girl spilled wine on you to get you to be quiet.”

    Summary

    "It's appropriate," Tyler says, "that something simmering underneath America for its entire history is what wound up destroying it."

     

    We're watching the barely-visible coverage on the Tulsa news as they talk about the very improbable eruption of the Yellowstone supervolcano an hour ago. The newscaster looks sick to her stomach, her pale face in sharp contrast to the deep purple of her blazer. The ash rains down outside; it poisons everything and everyone.

     

    This is exactly what I would expect Tyler to say to this news.

     

    "You're getting predictable," I tell Tyler.

     

    The narrator worries for Marla at the end of American civilization, and, in his way, Tyler settles things.

    Summary

    Beacon never fell. The Brother Gods and Salem may or may not exist. Team Ruby lives a (mostly) normal life. A series of snippets from four years of Beacon, with Team RWBY celebrating various holidays together and falling in love. Won't be twelve months in a row; it's twelve months over the course of 4 years.

    Underage because Ruby (at least at first)

    Also, shameless experiments with the pop culture of an alternate universe. Parodies and Pastiches abound.

    Summary

    De lui, certains voyaient un profil de somptueuse cathédrale gothique flamboyant de ses derniers feux ou l'intimité d'une minuscule chapelle romane d'une sévérité monacale. En effet, il méprisait la richesse avec la facilité qui vient lorsqu'elle n'est pas à acquérir et s'il détestait sa richesse, il n'aimait guère plus sa noblesse. Brève esquisse, prélude à un portrait de Robert de Saint Loup.

    Summary

    Eventually, I came to wonder if perhaps the flaw in my taxonomy had some more significant meaning. Miss Mori, after all, had found even the songs of Type 2 beautiful. She was always the more romantic of us, a word I mean in its artistic sense as well as its conventional one.

    If she had been right all along, I wondered, what else might I have overridden her on in error?

    Summary

    Someone is stealing computer equipment from across London, and no one can work out who or, for that matter, why. With alarm bells ringing, the legendary Flying Squad turn to Peter for help, and Peter turns to Dr David Mellenby, an astrophysicist who knows rather more about magic than Peter expected. In an investigation that criss crosses the capital, but especially the river, Peter learns more than he ever wanted to about quantum, cryptocurrencies, and just what it takes to destroy a computer.

    Summary

    Requested by UltimateCCC on Fanfiction.Net. This is yet another chapter of Rouge's Brothel: Bondage Night. And yes, rdphoenix07 gave me permission to write this too. I would have added this as part of the Bondage Night fic, but SuperSonicBros123 wanted the fic to stay as it is. So it is up to your imagination as to whether or not this is part of that fic. Also, despite the title, there isn't actually bondage in this one, sorry guys.

    Summary

    You listen well and follow my voice, I’ll say. Just you, without a name. Attaching a name attaches you to the world of fact, riskier, more hazardous: who knows what the chances are out there, of survival, yours? I will say you, you, you, like an old Temple song. You can mean more than one.

    You can mean thousands. Can mean a Temple filled with love.

    I’m not in immediate danger, I’ll say to you.

    I’ll pretend you can hear me.

    But it’s no good, because I know you can’t.

     
    At the end of the Clone Wars, the Jedi Order fell. Please note that "to fall" does not mean "to be killed."

    Summary

    A bit of Dief appreciation, inspired by what I fondly call the "Animal Pity Party" children's books by Holly Webb, illustrated by Sophy Williams, which have such heart-wrenchingly sad titles as "Sky the Unwanted Kitten", "Lucy the Poorly Puppy", or (why mince words?) "THE SADDEST KITTEN", with cover illustrations of even more heart-wrenchingly sad furballs. I thought "Dief the Deaf Wolf" would fit right in.
