    Summary

    For the truly wronged, real satisfaction can only be found in one of two places: absolute forgiveness or mortal vindication.
    This is not a story about forgiveness.
    So sit down, grab a drink and let me tell you the story about a man, who could not forgive...

    ----

    In this world the elite called "the nobles" holds all the power. They live in the big cities, have all the rights to do whatever they want to anyone but of course to another noble.
    If you are not a noble you are considered low and have no rights. The non-nobles are called "Dirts, who live in slums, trying to survive in a place with terrible diseases, constant rape, murder, abuse, hunger, thirst.
    To kill, beat or rape a dirt is not considered a crime, because they are no human to the elite, just objects to do whatever with.
    If a dirt want to have a better life, that dirt can offer himself up as a slave at the trading markets for other nobles. If a noble buys a dirt and makes him his slave, that dirt will get an ID and a name chosen by his owner. He will live under the roof of that noble, obey to every order and please his new master until death.

    Summaries are real shit....ugh...

    Summary

    The credits to The Bourne Identity rolled. "That's me," the stranger said.

    "You're the hero?" Titus asked skeptically as he got up to rewind the tape. He looked nothing like Matt Damon. His jawline was superior, to start with.

    “No, I mean how the rogue agent knows things but doesn't know why he knows. Difference is I know I can fly a helicopter, build a bomb out of household chemicals, and field-strip an antimateriel rifle, and I got a good idea why, but I get blindsided by the normal shit I can do, like load an icebox so the meat don't get dripped on, or boil a shirt.”

    “Far be it from me to judge what is and is not normal,” Titus said, “but normal people don't boil shirts.”

    Summary

    "My baby Blue. Let me see those beautiful eyes..."

    | - · · · | · - · · | · · - | · |

    "I have a job for you," he said, and Blue sat to attention. "Go to this address and kill the man who lives there."

    Blue did as he was told --- he always did as he was told. Failure was not an option.

    But, this time, he made an exception.

    | - · · · | · - · · | · · - | · |

    I do not own Avengers, Disney does. I only own Blue and his story.

    This story contains mentions and scenes of physical abuse, animal abuse, and medical abuse, along with blood and gore. If you are uncomfortable with these themes, I recommend you do not read this story.

    Takes place Pre-Winter Soldier.

    Summary

    When you're a Quirkless orphan on the streets, you have to fight twice as hard for just about everything. Survival. Respect. Allies. Most of the time, you're just barely scraping by. And, for that matter, so is everyone else around you.

    So Izuku does what he does best: he helps. Sometimes that means mediating gang disputes; other times, it's something as simple as grocery shopping. It's not like anyone else will, after all.

    With so many hopes riding on him, there's only ever been one option. Quirk or no Quirk, UA or no UA—he's going to become a hero.

    Summary

    New work that has been playing in my mind. This is a huge deviation from my normal character creation when I play Skyrim. I never support the Imperials and I usually don't play an elf, but Cylfin has been hammering away in my head. This work may come in fits and bursts cause I am focus on Dragonborn's Journey, but this little Bosmer wont shut up.

    Deviates a bit from cannon. She's not exactly evil, but she certainly isn't going to be nice either. It's hard to be attracted to something you despise. Follows the Thieves Guild quest lines and may dabble in the main quest and Dark Brotherhood quests, I haven't gotten that far in yet, but I feel like I may make another connection
