    Summary

    “During a long time, different societies tried to find reasons to explain the gender dynamics in human beings. Some believed it was a natural law, some believed it was a punishment, some believed it was a destiny, and some believed it was just a detail. I ask you, why not all of them? We are hormonal creatures, no doubt, and we can’t run away from our biology, but we can evolve and change, we can dream. If there are religions explaining gender “hierarchy” and omegarism as a plan of god, there are ones dedicated to the mother omega and the equal participation in the sacred aspects. Science can explain our behavior based on our anatomy, history can explain based on our antecessor needs, but there’s a lot more to be discovered yet. Why the concept of soul mates is considered antiquated, for example? Who decided that mating should be only a physical response to smells? Why, we, as a society, can’t get rid of old prejudices even after fighting for equal rights to every gender?"

    Chanyeol is a hired mate. Kyungsoo hates the moon.

    Summary

    Perhaps their eyes met. Perhaps this priest was just scanning the crowd, pausing here and there as he did so. But once Dio observed his lean body underneath his vestments, noticed his full lips and, most stunningly, the strangely intense haughtiness in his eyes and in the way he lifted his chiseled chin, he decided that this priest would be his.

    Today, Black Friday, Dio waited at the end of the line, waiting for his turn to partake in reconciliation. Today, he had something to confess.

    Summary

    Spin-off of inukagome15's The Last Archangel, with permission from the original author.

    There was Mikha'el before Michael, and Bucky Barnes before the Winter Soldier. The thing that seems to be shared, between all of them, is the capability to be a soldier-- through Heavenly War, through the Second World War, through orders and assassinations.

    It becomes harder when they discover who they used to be.

    Summary

    It had been years since Norman could see the Dead, and he wasn't complaining. He had built a comfortable life for himself on the West Coast: had a good job doing something he liked, and people who genuinely cared for him. Even if he had felt something was missing. However, a chance encounter with a mysterious set of twins overturned all that he had built, sending him headlong into a journey of danger, supernatural fright, and a divine conspiracy that stretched beyond centuries. Where will the journey lead? Will he even like where it goes? Will he find the thing he has striven for the most? Or will his whole life fall to ash?

    Summary

    Some say that a cross is a heavy burden to bear.

    Yugi always thought that was nothing compared to the weight of divine prophecy he must carry from birth to tomb.

    (The Living Horus still walks the earth as a god. Mary Magdalene is his consort and well-beloved figure of the people. Judas Iscariot betrayed his god, but only once. John and Peter follow in the Pharaoh's footsteps as though he hung the stars in the sky.

    Atem is no king, save being called ruler of shadows. He wanders the land with his disciples, teaching love, peace, and respect for the common man.

    But a problem arises: Yugi becomes infatuated with a mortal man named Judas.)

    Summary

    Revolution is brewing in New York City. On one side, the ruthless gang boss George King and his large army of Redcoats. On the other side is once-loyal ex-Redcoat George Washington, attempting to oust his previous leader with nothing but a small, yet vicious force. The NYPD is powerless to stop the oncoming gang war. When the violence leaves innocents dead, the NYPD face facts: they cannot do this alone.

    Enter FBI Agents Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, specialists in gang wars and violence. Heading up a small task force, the two aim to end the War of The Georges, bring both leaders down, and restore peace to NYC. In theory, a routine operation. They're professionals, experts.

    But between an eccentric King, a ruthless George Washington, and a simultaneously cute and frustrating young gang soldier named Alexander, Jefferson and Madison have unknowingly embarked on their hardest assignment yet. Can they end the violence before too many die, or will they be lucky to excape with their own skin?

    Summary

    The prologues consist of the story behind the old photograph, an intro to Adachi's time with Iwai, and a look at who Niichan is.

    While our main story resumes with Tohru and Ryota heading into the TV World to check on some hunches. Nanako finds out, of course. And then finally faces her shadow!?
    Tohru and crew head over to Naichou on another excruciating car ride. Once there, Tohru has to wrangle everyone into using their personas IRL and getting along and—Okay why does Namatame have his Izanagi but isn't fighting with the rest? Why do he and Ito get to take it easy?? And are those evokers Elizabeth gave Ryota!?
    What else? There's a fake relationship that gets a little too real. Teddie finishes building his boat with the others. Tohru makes everyone finally play King's Game. Tohru and Kanji experience a body swap!? Will this make them understand each other a little better? (Poor Kanji!) And why is everyone playing DDR...? (Please don't tell me they're going to go to karaoke, too.)

    We’re really going to begin digging into what makes humans and other beings (shadows, gods, etc) separate.
