    Summary

    Matt hated fear above all other things.

    He hated the feel of it. He hated the way it made his actions jaunty. He hated the way it made his chest ache. He hated the way it forced him to hesitate, to wait, to risk one more person’s life.

    He didn't trust his body anymore. He didn't trust his own mind.

    He was beating out his fear on the streets, earning more bruises and broken bones than ever before.

    Matt barely knew who he was. When he woke in the confines of his former orphanage, he didn't even recognize his name; not as Father Lanton said it to him over and over.

    When he ran out, he still hadn’t remembered his last one.

    So he was in the streets dressed in black, all traces of his former self boiling down to a monosyllabic identifier -- one he wasn’t sure he identified with anymore. People called him the Devil. It felt more right than the former.

    Summary

    Oliver Queen has never done what his family expected of him. He took a gap year after high school instead of going to college right away. He quit his fraternity sophomore year to join the student newspaper, switching his major from business to journalism. He became a photojournalist for a wire service instead of taking a place at Queen Consolidated.
    He went missing after six months instead of coming home for his sister’s twenty-first birthday.
    He survived five years of captivity in a war zone when everyone thought he was dead.
    He came home.
    But home didn’t have a place for him in it anymore. His parents were both dead, casualties of their own mistakes and a city they had turned against them. His sister was all grown up, the CEO of Queen Consolidated with a fiancé and a dog and a life of her own. Oliver didn’t belong in his old life, but there was nowhere else for him to go.
    He was a man without a home, without any way of finding one, until he stopped by the IT department of his sister’s company to get files off an old, battered memory card, and found a woman with curly blonde hair and bright, intelligent eyes chewing on a bright red pen and swearing at a computer screen.

    Summary

    Lillie wasn’t permitted to compete in the junior figure skating championships until she was 14. She was still too clumsy by far, her mother said. A rock that had yet to be pressed into a diamond. She would embarrass the family. Expectations are high, after all, with your brother who he is, with your mother who she is. Best to stay off the ice until you’re stronger, my dear. It’s for your own good.

    So, when Gladion was taking home his first gold junior championship medal, Lillie was behind the barriers with her mother, watching.

    Yet it wasn’t her brother that held her attention during that final bout on the ice. What she couldn’t take her eyes off was the silver medal winner. A girl with short brown hair, accompanied on the ice by a Popplio.
    --
    In which Lillie is an anxious figure skater who just ran away from home, and Moon busts in declaring herself her new coach.

    “The Fade didn’t change you.”

    “Yes it did,” Hawke says, and Fenris peers at her. She doesn’t have the words. She wants now, in a way she never did before. Towering want, beyond her own safety and the safety of those she loves. She wants something she has not yet glimpsed.

    Summary

    What if Kenshin had found little Sojiro in the rain at the Seta's house instead of Shishio? What if little Sojiro was taken in by the Kenshingumi and lovingly cared for instead? A family AU that basically ignores a lot of the timeline.

    Psst! This story has lots of chapters, but don't be intimidated - each one is relatively short!

    This is a very long story full of whump and TONS of hurt/comfort with no forseeable end in sight as of yet so don't @me, thanks. If you like gratuitious hurt/comfort, this is the fanfic for you.

    Summary

    Obviously completely AU-
    The Earp Family has been in power over the Ghost River Triangle for over 400 years. Wynonna had never wanted to be Queen, but when she is thrust into the position unexpectedly she very quickly starts to make changes to all the rules. With her sister, Princess Waverly, and her best friend and bodyguard, Nicole Haught, by her side she is determined to avoid the supposed Earp Curse and change the face of the Monarchy forever. With threats coming from unexpected places, the only thing this trio knows for sure is that it's them against the World.

     

    A/N: So this story totally started as one thing and ended in a completely different place. That being said, I am really proud and excited to share this with you all. It takes a lot of unexpected twists and turns so going into this without any expectations might be best, haha. I hope you all enjoy it but, hey, if not you always have the option to stop reading. For those of you who make it through this entire journey with me, I thank you kindly. You are the reason I share stories on this site.

    Summary

    Griffith never faltered.

    Everything to which he committed himself he followed through to the last meticulously planned detail. He was ambition incarnate; graceful, charismatic and ruthlessly determined. Beautiful as a waking dream. He moved through life like water over a creek bed, flowing and shifting effortlessly over every stone, his turmoil and strife unseen beneath a gleaming surface.

    Griffith never faltered. . . until he met him.

    Summary

    Morgana suspected, in the few moments she’d concerned herself with the idea, that her final resting place would be the Shadow Realm.

    In the direct aftermath of the Eternal Night, floating through the darkness, she believed perhaps that time had finally come.

    Until, she, severely weakened, fell back to Earth. Then she thought her demise would be at a crossroads, also fitting.

    Except then she is found by the Trollhunter's mother of all people and the woman, for some unfathomable reason, refused to kill her.

    Now, trapped in the woman's home without magic, Morgana slowly begins to see the world in a way she hasn't legitimately considered for a very long time.
