    Summary

    „Every great magic trick consists of three parts or acts. The first part is called "The Pledge". The magician shows you something ordinary: a deck of cards, a bird or a man. He shows you this object. Perhaps he asks you to inspect it to see if it is indeed real, unaltered, normal. But of course... it probably isn't. The second act is called "The Turn". The magician takes the ordinary something and makes it do something extraordinary. Now you're looking for the secret... but you won't find it, because of course you're not really looking. You don't really want to know. You want to be fooled. But you wouldn't clap yet. Because making something disappear isn't enough; you have to bring it back. That's why every magic trick has a third act, the hardest part, the part we call "The Prestige".“ (Cutter, in The Prestige (2006))

    An epic tale about Thanos, a song, and two mages in a weird and rather unkind world, who might be a tiny little bit afraid that love might be what they are starting to feel for each other.

    Summary

    "Before humans existed there were Titans, though they were nothing like the Titans we have today. They had names, identities, distinguishable appearances, and unique abilities not unlike our shifters. These Titans gave birth to what our ancestors called Gods, who later created the human race. What if those individuals our ancestors called Gods were not truly deities but merely glorified humans? Godlike if you will, who possessed the abilities of their Titan ancestors? What if Titans are our ancestors?"

    Summary

    “And what would you give child, to do it all again? To erase the infinite, and revive the slain? To have a chance to wipe away all your love one's strife and pain?”
    “Anything” she promised.
    The old witch smiled wickedly, red eyes gleaming. “Then it's time for a new reign.”
    Arya opened her mouth to ask what she meant, but it was too late.

    In other words; Arya Stark goes back in time in an attempt to change the past.

    Summary

    “I need you to kill me,” Tony says, not a trace of joking in his voice. His lungs feel like they are still filled with more water than air and broken bones grind against each other as he crawls slowly across the room to lay his life in Steve’s hands.

    “I can’t,” Steve says, but Tony knows he will do it. He might hate himself for it later, but he can be trusted to always make the hard choice.

    - Tony and Steve get captured, which only turns into a real problem when their kidnappers dose Steve with an unknown substance that antagonises the serum. Rendered helpless, he has to watch Tony being tortured right in front of him. Even all but broken, Tony finds a way out for them, although Steve is not sure whether he can live with himself afterwards if they go through with it. Tony, in turn, is utterly too happy to lay down his life for Steve.

    Summary

    “Get the hell away from him!”

    Stiles looked at the Eichen Knight.

    “He knows who Batman is,” Scarecrow simply stated, dragging the sharp edge of the needle against the skin of Stiles’ arm. She lightly laughed when Stiles flinched. “You seem attached.”

    “Get out,” the Knight demanded.

    “Or?” Scarecrow pressed.

    The Knight drew his sidearm, pointing the barrel directly between Scarecrow’s eyes. “I told you—step on my toes, and I’ll do what Batman never had the guts to do.”

    “And if I call your bluff?” Scarecrow carefully asked.

    The Knight took a step towards Scarecrow, pressing the cold metal barrel against her forehead as he clicked the hammer back. “Have you ever seen me bluff?” He dared her.
