    Summary

    Laying on an old and dirty mattress, with nothing around but a tiny and worn down sheet, next to the leaking window, the lonely “mistress” of the rundown shack stared up at the falling snow.

    Eren's life is a never ending nightmare. From being married off young, living impoverished, and with more children in an unhappy marriage, Eren can't seem to find an escape to his miserable life.

    That is until one day a kind stranger gifts him something he so desperately needs. What he doesn't know is how he would affect the life of another who is struggling in an unhappy life

    Family. Legacy. Respect.
    Dorian bartered away his freedom and independence to purchase them when he’d resigned himself to walk the path his father had designed for him.

    A visit from a mysterious doctor threatens to turn his household, his world, and his heart upside-down.

    Summary

    Canon Divergent AU where Levi and friends aren't recruited for the 23rd Scouting Expedition.

    "Muddy, wretched, shit-stained sinkhole. With every rich pig above pissing down on us in the dark, and makin' us pay for the pleasure. The only people down here making any kind of living are selling quick death on a blade, or slow death in a bottle." Levi turned away from the scene of squalor to glare Farlan right in the eye.

    "We've been ruined enough. We're not letting Isabel rot down here too."

    It's 844, and Levi is the strongest thug in The Underground. But then an illness threatens Levi's life, and prevents him, and his friends, from being pressed into the Survey Corps. The price of Levi's survival has him desperately clawing a different path to bring his fragile family from darkness up to the light.

    Summary

    “I have a proposition for you,” Namjoon said, radiating a calm Jungkook could not copy for the life of him. His heart was still in his throat, mind switching between increasingly scarier and more intense thoughts. He looked like the type of person who’d like to be called daddy. “I need eyes and ears in this area. Reliable eyes and ears.”

    “Why me?” Jungkook said, voice so soft and squeaky it was barely audible, but Namjoon had no problem catching on to it as a dimpled smile crossed his face.

    “I had a gut feeling you’d be cut out for the job,” Namjoon said simply, putting his hands in his pockets, making his white blouse stretch over his chest and pecs. Jungkook was pretty sure it wasn’t okay to drool in front of Kim Namjoon. “And so far my gut feeling has always been right.”

     

    or: Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer. When Namjoon suspects Jungkook is a spy sent to gather intel on them, they decide to recruit the boy and keep a close eye on him. Things don't really go as planned, but nobody complains.

    Summary

    “When you play the Hunger Games, you win or you die. There is no middle ground.”

    Jon Snow is not a lucky boy. Being born a bastard in District 12, the poorest district of Westeros, isn’t exactly a cakewalk, whatever that means, but Jon is even less fortunate than that. He never knew his mother, and his father died in a mining “accident” five years ago. But he’s never thought of himself as unlucky either. Jon feels like he has a lot to be thankful for, actually. His father was a good man, who took him in and treated him no different from his trueborn children. He has a roof over his head and food most days. And most of all, he has five half-siblings that he absolutely adores.

    Which is why it’s so devastating when it turns out that the male and female tributes for the Quarter Quell of the Hunger Games will be brother and sister.

    Summary

    Deep into his investigation into the Zenin Family, Nanami Kento finds himself assigned to pose at Jujutsu Technical College as a teacher and blend into school life in order to bring Zenin Toji down once and for all.

    What he did not account for, however, was one clingy teacher head over heels for him, twin brothers needing some sort of stability, and the child of the assassin seeking refuge in the shadows.
