    Summary

    None of them heard a goddamn thing, except for Leo. 'Course he did. Apparently being blind had given him echolocation or magic powers or something.

    Set in a future in which the Foot took over the East Coast for over a decade. The three surviving turtles have finally killed Shredder, but remain bitter, jaded, scarred, and more than a little distrusting of humanity. Lots of hurt/comfort/psychology. Involves a baby.

    Summary

    Dorian: That little trick, Cole, when you dip into someone's mind and take a drink?
    Dorian: Do you choose what you're looking for, or is it random?
    Cole: It has to be hurt, or a way to help the hurt. That's what calls me.
    Cole: Rilienus, skin tan like fine whiskey, cheekbones shaded, lips curl when he smiles.
    Cole: He would have said yes.
    Dorian: I'll... thank you not to do that again, please.—Dragon Age: Inquisition

    OR: What if, in the years before and since his association with Dorian Pavus, “Rilienus” went through a few other incarnations, as well? The final ones being, of course, Herald of Andraste and Inquisitor. What will happen when the star-crossed pair meet again during the rise of the Inquisition? How will Thedas react to an elf-blooded Inquisitor from the Tevinter Imperium? And will true love triumph over everything, even when nothing less than everything is at stake?

    Summary

    Tyler was like most people. He wished that he had the chance to start over, a new sheet, and make different decisions, write different words. He wished that he could be different, maybe have a different name, instead of one that seemed to be all-too common for his comfort. He wished he were someone else.

    But, in the same regards, Tyler wasn't most people. He couldn't be. Most people didn't have a gun pointed to their head.

    Summary

    In retrospect, it was probably a bad idea for two people with trust issues, insecurities, hoards of secrets, and intense truth-seeking tendencies to stay in the same house. But after Klavier forced Apollo to go to the emergency room, he didn't really have a choice of whether or not to extend the invitation. And Apollo didn't really have a choice of whether or not to accept it.

    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

    Chirrut was disappointed that they had much less time to spend together now that Baze had become a monk—he almost regretted it, even, and had to pray most ardently for the Force to teach him wisdom and patience in this, now that he had gotten all of his wishes.

    (Sometimes, Chirrut was insufferable even to himself.)
