    Summary

    When Dabi is struck by a de-aging quirk that regresses him to the most important part of his life, he finds himself turned back to a sixteen year-old U.A. General Studies student with a lot of self-esteem issues, parent problems, a destructive quirk that he can't manage, and no memory of the five years that he's lost - not the mention the fact that his little brother is now the same age as him and one of the top students in the U.A. hero course. In U.A.'s attempt to make up for what they missed and help the Dabi of the past, present, and future, he is placed with the only students that know him and have yet to find out what truly makes the difference between a hero and a villain. There, they must face the question of whether he can change or if his destiny is already set in stone.

    Summary

    The story of Edd and Kevin as seniors in high school - using a trope, but one that works in my opinion. I've noticed Kevin is often portrayed as an aggressive (sometimes asshole) half of the pair, who often bullies Edd even though he likes him. I changed that up and made Kevin mature a bit into a much sweeter version. Rated teen for some mature themes and some swearing. Rating and warning and tags will change should I deem it necessary. (See notes at the end for an explanation.)

    Story is pretty much complete, so updates should happen fairly regularly.

    Summary

    If James Tiberius Kirk was anything it was adaptable and he already had practice at dealing with crap from alternative realities to help with that. Still, finding himself actually in one was slightly new, especially when he had been dressed for a night of bar hopping with Bones and Scotty and no one believed he was Starfleet.

    Summary

    Park Jimin isn't asexual. Sure, his boyfriend just broke up with him because he doesn't enjoy having sex with him, but that doesn't mean anything. He's just stressed and it's taking a toll on his body.
    Actually, this is a good thing. It finally gives him time to focus on his giant crush on Min Yoongi.
    Min Yoongi who dates one person after another, who probably has more sex in a month than Jimin could bear having in his whole life.
    But that's okay. Because Park Jimin isn't broken. He just hasn't found the right person yet. Right?

    Summary

    It was impulsive, greedy, animalistic, the way that she took hold of Kenny’s face. She had to prove to him—if not herself—that she was worthy of being seen as attractive. That her body, with all of its scars and imperfections, was still precious and worthwhile of being loved. Beneath her sad lips, she felt a smile on his face widen.
    “Relax, Heidi,” he whispered sweetly, “I’m not going anywhere."

    Summary

    Sebastian is seen as evil in "Happy Thoughts", which he was for many years. When he finally broke free to become a person, he was shown that the world was not how it was ment to be. After this, he questioned his whole life and his own reality. He is also now victim of the horrible experiment of Project Libitina in his dreams.

    Behind every person is a story. All you have to do is see behind the mask that they show you. Beware for what you see, it may not be what you expect.

    Note: this story, to some extent, can be read without reading "Happy Thoughts", but some of the purpose will be lost without looking at the 1st.

    Summary

    Here's the first thing Kendall does in the morning: he calls Jo. Even with the difference in time zones, she picks up. "Kendall? I've been really worried. What was up with that yesterday, were you-"

    "The article was sort of true, I guess. I'm gay, Jo."

    "Oh, okay. I- I'm glad you trust me enough, to tell me."

    "You know, I'm kind of tired of pretending." He pauses to think. "I don't think Griffin would go for it, though. Doesn't exactly fit his ideal."

    "Well, you are Big Time Rush's resident bad boy..."

    He smiles. "That's true. Shouldn't have given me the title if they didn't want me breaking the rules.

    Summary

    Grace loves Dragon Age and is in love with a fictional character, Solas. After a failed suicide attempt, she is offered the chance to continue living in Thedas instead of dealing with the terrible consequences of her actions. She accepts even though she knows she will be herself, with all the issues she has, and won't be able to be affected by healing magic or potions. She can't die, but if she happens to not-die she will suffer terribly.
    She is now the Herald, a really weak one, unable to defend herself, and she finds out she has magic, but doesn't know how to use it.
    This story can be heavy in the beginning, she really loathes herself, but it has nice moments. It has a big focus on friendship and self-discovery.

    Summary

    Haunted by the mistakes of her past, Evana Lavellan feels (reluctantly) compelled to stay and help the newly dubbed "Inquisition" close the Breach. But no longer than that. After all, they only care for her welfare because of the mark on her hand.

    Unfortunately, every mission seems to take her further away from her goal instead of closer to it. But each refugee saved and disaster averted also brings with it a sliver of tranquility, a fleeting taste of atonement for past wrongs. Surrounded by new people - new friends - she discovers a wider world than she'd ever imagined with her clan, a world in which she has the power to improve the lives of both elves AND mages.

    Strangest of all, she finds herself drawn to an unlikely friend and confidant in Inquisition's ex-templar military advisor who, like her, is all too familiar with the bitter taste of regret... and the fragile touch of hope.

    **Game scenes/dialogue included but also tons of original "in-between" moments, dialogue, character development and introspection. Super mild AU for shuffling conversation locations and tweaking the order of events. Quizzy is my own. Rating will update with content.

    Summary

    This is a spin-off of Dress Rehearsal, starring my homeboy Magnus on his way to self-discovery and realizing that he's not just a six in a group of sevens.

    It will spoil Dress Rehearsal, so if you want to read that story, start with that.

    You will be able to enjoy this story without having read all the dark, angsty shit that's DR, so I decided to publish this separately. Inclusion, people!

    There might be some darkness lurking in here too, it is *my* fic after all, but not much. And happy endings! So, so many!

    Tags added later if need be. I literally make these up as I go along.
