    Summary

    "Are you happy now, that he's on the ground
    And do you realize the words you say make bruises that don't fade away
    Are you happy now, that you've brought him down
    And he's thinking that he won't fit in
    'Cause you said something's wrong with him
    Are you happy now?"
    Are You Happy Now by Meg and Liz
    ---

    Percy is near his breaking point.

    He just can't do it anymore. It's become too much. One night, when he attempts to jump off the Astronomy Tower, he's pulled back at the last second by the last person he ever thought would be there.

    ~~

    Oliver Wood never bothered to get to know his dormmate. They'd essentially lived separate lives. Now he felt guilty. Guilty for treating him like he wasn't there. guilty for not recognizing the signs.

    He decides he wants to get to know Percy Weasley. And that year, the boys develop a deep friendship. Over the course of that year, Percy feels a sense of belonging. he feels love and acceptance for who he really is.

    ~~

    As of July 2nd, 2021, there are twenty chapters finished. I'll be posting every Friday. Hopefully in the meantime, I'll get others completed so I can keep that schedule

    Summary

    Maybe it was fate that gifted Adachi this ability. An ability that would – in its own roundabout way – cause romance to blossom between him and his (very male) colleague. But what if life had been less kind to Adachi and he had turned out slightly more... broken.
    A complete rewrite of the series from Adachi's POV with main focus on his relationships with other characters. The greatest deviations from canon include Adachi's familial backstory, his history of abuse and Tsuge's lack of virginity and thus mind-reading abilities.

    Excerpt from the text:
    “Oh, you've got to be kidding me. He dragged a hand over his face in a frustrated fashion. He didn't want to have to deal with this first thing in the morning. He quickly finished up brushing his teeth and retrieved the first aid kit from where he had stored it the evening before. Adachi took off his shirt clumsily, trying to be as gentle as possible as not to aggravate the wound on his back any more than he already had."

    Summary

    Wherein Jiang Cheng and Lan Xichen had been in a secret relationship for five years, married for two, and have a son together- thanks to his Yu genes.

    Four months post Guanyin temple and Jiang Cheng has a mental breakdown, his husband is in seclusion, his nephew is out there somewhere with his other more fun uncle, the recent reveals still fresh on him, and his son is now 10 months old- a stress in itself.

    No longer caring, he marches over to Cloud Recesses just to have a goddamn break from everything, he wants- no needs his husband to be there with him because he cannot do this alone.

    “I’m here to see Xichen.”

    “Sect Leader Jiang, it is of public knowledge that our sect leader is currently in seclusion and would not be entertaining visitors- even ones as esteemed such as yourself, if you would just-“

    “I want to see Xichen.” He said, resolute despite the constant denial of entry. No one seemed to notice- or maybe they just didn’t mind the bundle he held in his arms.

    Summary

    "Is this okay?" Seungwoo whispers when he pulls away, hand returning to its place on Seungsik's waist, fingers curling over his skin.

     

     

    "Of course," Seungsik says, trembles, "Anything for you."

     

    "That's just you," Seungwoo even laughs, happiness bubbling up in his eyes, but there's also concern. "You give so much, you need to make sure you keep enough for yourself."

    Summary

    Twelve years is a long time to know someone, even if you don't particularly get along. Sometimes empathy and understanding are built piece by stressful piece, and stability, not power, can be a reason to gravitate towards someone. Even mortals brushing the limits of divinity are just people infected with an isolating madness; just as flawed, just as weary, just as alone. It is relief that guides a person to seek out another's presence, and that can be enough.

    TLDR: A linear series of moments showcasing an unlikely bond between two very different people.

    Summary

    All my poems, posted in mostly a chronological order of when they were written. Can serve as a journey through recovery; and the teenage years of a self-harming, socially anxious, depressive, suicidal, autistic (but doesn't really know it yet) girl - in other words: me...

     

    Not expecting much traffic for this work, just wanted to have them all in one easily-accessible place.
    I bear my soul in this poems: if no one reads them that's fine with me!

    Summary

    The small Yukon town of Ptarmigan's Roost is isolated and cut off from the rest of the country. Snow and ice reign there for eight months of the year, and when a virus begins to spread through the locals, your team of humanitarian doctors are called in to help. Everything is as expected until one night a strange, giant man attacks your team, and you realized that following your oath as a healer may be more challenging than you anticipated.

    This fic is inspired by RobotWendigo's superb "Human" series (see Notes) and is based in the same world. As such, the Tyrant in this fic is not Mr. X (despite the tag, AO3's tags were limited), but is a similar T-103 model.

    Summary

    Sirius Black is stage manager for a production of Romeo and Juliet in which his best friend, Remus Lupin, plays the lead. When the play's new director, Severus Snape, coaxes Remus into a relationship, Sirius notices something isn't right. He's always been very protective of the man he loves with an almost romantic zeal that goes beyond a typical friendship, and he'll fight to save him from Snape's abuse. But it's hard to convince Remus that he's worthy of real love and care.

    BTW, the title is a slightly altered quote from Romeo and Juliet.

    Summary

    "Marinette please let's just go home, your gonna get sick out here." She said as a chuckle escaped my lips. While staring out upon the dark water.

    There's a certain beauty in the ideal of darkness. It's never just applied to one situation, it's an ever-expanding force. That can sneak up on even the kindest of people. Marinette Dupain-Cheng is learning that lesson quite well. Overwhelmed with the pristine image that is of Ladybug. She's hanging by a thread as a certain sly fox corrupts those around her. But, as she stitches with the swirling dark thoughts it can eventually become comforting. As the balance of what was once a clear image is now becoming clouded. Memories of what she once knew are fading away. Sinking further in the abyss only to create her own justice. Though how far can one descend past the light before they start drowning?

    Summary

    Warning! This is NOT a light and breezy fic. Mind the trigger warnings listed in the first chapter. I mean it. When I wrote one of these chapters, I gagged. Literally. Managed to trigger myself a couple dozen times throughout the rest of the story. Be safe and prioritize your mental health, friends. I’d love for you to read my story, but not at your expense. *The work is completed, I'm just having a hard time getting her uploaded.*

    Bucky loves Steve. Of course he does, Steve's his best friend. He just wishes that's all the love he had for Steve.
    Steve and Bucky learn each other, lose each other, and find each other again. It's a love story with tons of feels and probably way too much smut. But that's how life is sometimes.

    This is my rewrite of how 'Civil War' could have gone if the guys running the MCU weren't cowards and just gave us our damn love story. No Sokovian Accords. Thanos is taken care of off screen. This fic is canon-compliant (mostly) ONLY until the beginning of Civil War. Then, I took a hard left turn and never looked back.
    (to the tune of Avril Lavigne's "Girlfriend")
    Hey, hey, Civil War!
    I don't like your movie!
    No way, no way, I think you need some Stucky!

    Summary

    He'd not counted on falling in love again, not after breaking off a relationship that had lingered in the most sinister of ways, but perhaps this is the univere's way of telling Zedaph that the time has come for him to finally move on.
    And, God, has the universe outdone itself when presenting him with Tango.
