    Summary

    “Stop being a fucking weakling, Shimakage. How do you expect people to respect you when you can’t even respect your own damn self?”

    It’s strange, she thinks, that she feels so shocked by his words. Maybe it’s because no one has ever called her out so brutally. No one has ever smacked her in the face with her own truth. Her classmate is brash, loud-mouthed, and rude, but he is just as determined as she is. He knows what he wants.

    She came to U.A High to become a hero, and at first, she only wanted to become a hero in order to make someone else proud of her. She wanted to earn the respect that he refuses to give her, to force him to see her as more than just a mistake.

    It took coming to U.A for her to realize just how broken she had let herself become.

    “Believe it or not, there are a lot of people who give a shit about you, and acting like you deserve this crap is disrespectful to all of them and yourself.”

    A story where a girl discovers friendship, love, danger, and self-worth.

    Summary

    Welcome to the Singularity Coalition, the Eastern side of the world’s last-ditch military effort at fighting the twenty-year-long colonization efforts of the Others, a breed of extraterrestrials far more intelligent, destructive, and patient than the world had ever anticipated an alien race trying to take over Earth to be.

    Park Jimin is a fresh-off-the-porter recruit in the newest batch of civilian enlistments. Min Yoongi is a Second Lieutenant, and one of the two leaders of Jimin’s home squad, The SC Bionics Guerrilla Task Force. Through their own personal struggles and the ones of their comrades, the two are reminded of the darkest moments of their pasts at different phases of their everyday lives. Yoongi sees them in everyone he loves; Jimin sees them when his eyes close.

    In a world where everything might end tomorrow, learning to freely love those who might very well break you by dying the next day is... fucking difficult. Yoongi struggles with truly opening up again, despite the support of those he holds dearest— a soldier through-and-through, affected by the war more than most of those his rank or status.

    Jimin shows him that it’s all worth the risk.

    Summary

    She barely remembers her childhood in Ostwick, but that has long ceased to matter. Liviana is a slave, bound to the Ludus Atropos of the mighty Tevinter Imperium, and that is her lot in life. And for the most part, it is a relatively comfortable life and she is content, having sold her conscience and soul years ago in order to survive.

    Until her friend takes an unimaginable risk and fights back against the ties that have bound them, and Liviana is forced to choose between freedom and death, or worse. She decides to run, but everything is so new and the world is suddenly so very lonely and large. What's a former slave to do with her life now that she is free? And why the hell is she agreeing to stay in Kirkwall? Surrounded by the taint of blood magic and finding herself in the company of mages, of all things, Liviana struggles to discover what it means to live.

    And maybe, even how to love.

    Spans DA2 and DAI.

    Summary

    The last chapter to Happily-Ever-After was supposed to be written with the End of War Manifesto that banished the villains from Auradon, but no one planned for Maleficent's Master Plan. Twenty-four years after the war is over, King Benjamin is about to ascend the throne, but there's one major roadblock - a daughter of Maleficent who has been cursed to become Queen of the Isle of the Lost with him, or else. Now, Ben and Mal need to learn to work together to rule an increasing number of kingdoms, including an Auradon in uproar over a new Queen, an Ancient Kingdom desperate to survive, an Island that has been completely severed off of Auradon to fend for itself as a new country, and a massive war that has been going on for thirty years above their heads. It's now or never. There is no time left. Updates on Wednesdays. Text spoilers posted every fifth chapter in closing notes.

    Jensen moved from Dallas to Portland in an effort to escape his helicopter parents. For the past four years, he's been living that Pacific Northwest Life. His boss, however, warns him about going "full Portland hipster."

Sadly, even record stores need working lights. Cue Jared Padalecki, a tattooed, pierced, half-British, half-Texan master electrician.

    Incredible, right?

    But Jensen has Baggage and a few issues to work through. Can he move forward? Should he call Jared back?

    Featuring vinyl records, a Nat King Cole soundtrack, the use of text emojis, British and Texan accents, and numerous Portlandia references.

    Summary

    Peter has this theory.

    He thinks that if he and MJ actually start dating, like in a way that’s defined and serious, where Peter is her boyfriend and he calls MJ his girlfriend, that everything will just become too intense and all consuming. Like he’s hydrogen and she’s oxygen and once there’s a spark, they’ll explode into a fire that they’ll never be able to put out.

    When he texts all of this to Ned, his phone immediately lights up with a response of: DUDE. Seriously? Can u 2 just bone already?

     

    [Basically Peter and MJ growing up, growing apart, and then back together. I think. Yes. That's what this is.]
