    Summary

    When I stepped off that curb, I had no idea that my life was over. I was blissfully unaware of anything outside the realm of my own contentment. With my earbuds tucked firmly into my ears, blaring directly into my eardrums, I touched down on the black asphalt like an airplane coming in for a landing. Above me, the clouds hung heavy and laden with moisture. The humidity pressed down on me, the air almost tangibly thick.

    And then the world ended.

    Summary

    Tony,

    I’m surprised you ever gave me the chance to know you after the things I said when we met. But when I saw you fly that nuke into the sky, knowing it was a one way trip, I knew then how wrong I was. You didn’t just lie down on the wire, you threw yourself headlong into the fray, knowing it would mean your death, because it was the right thing to do.

    You’ve been on that wire for years Tony, protecting humanity, saving lives, doing good. You’re a better man than I ever gave you credit for, a better man than me because you were always a friend when I needed you.

    I understand if you never want to see me again after all the ways I’ve let you down, I’ll understand. I’ll go away Tony, I’ll give you whatever you want, because you’re everything to me, and I owe you that.

    Steve

     

    Tony folds the letter carefully and tucks it into his pocket, stares out the window at the stars, and proceeds to get blind drunk.

    Summary

    Several months and some change after the averted Second Great Collapse, the coins are still falling. Heads or tails? Either way, the pain will stay with them forever.

    Ch. 3 (technically ch. 4 but the real ch. 3 isn't posted yet)

    Leo’s breath is ragged as he runs, heart pounding a furious tempo. Will’s hand is on his shoulder but he can’t hear what the blond is trying to say through the roaring in his ears, he just knows that he has to get them away from the King of Depravity’s creations.

    “What’s wrong with him?”

    “How should I know?” Zapp gripes. “He was carrying you, not me.”

    “Would you want to start from the beginning?”

    “My sister came to visit me,” Leo says, and he opens his eyes to stare up at the ceiling, blinking a few times to let them calibrate.

    “Just, just let me get through this, okay?”

    Summary

    If Ochako had to choose anyone to be psychically connected to as a result of an unfortunate quirk, Bakugou is about the last person she would choose. Really the only people who she'd hate being linked to more is Deku, who broke her heart last year, or Minetta for obvious reasons. Naturally, that means that when she is in a fight with some evil child-killing bastards after a long day of saving lives it has to be him the villain ties to her mind. They say two minds are better than one, but Ochaco doesn't think they meant it for this particular context.

    Summary

    George Denbrough had been dead five long years the night he woke his brother Bill up at one in the morning.

    Bill shot up, heart pounding painfully in his chest. Reality took hold and screamed dead dead dead your fault into his ears. The real Georgie was miles below where Bill sat now, probably already rotted down to the bone, surrounded by the other dead children of Derry. Georgie was dead. This could be a dream, a hallucination, the aftereffects of the really shitty weed he’d shared with Beverly the day before, but it could not really be Georgie. And yet, some hopeful part of Bill’s heart begged for it to be real, for one more chance to hold his brother.

    Or,

    Bill is haunted, Richie is in love with more than half of his childhood friends, and Stanley can't sleep.

    Summary

    “What is it that you do not like about him?” Josephine asks suddenly, and Ellinor looks at her, open-mouthed. Scandalized.

    “What is it—that I don’t like?” she sputters. “It’s Cullen who doesn’t like me! He—he chastises me. He underestimates me. He’s always in a bad mood and—and he just…” She takes a deep breath. Stop it, she thinks; she’s let her emotions get the best of her. A rare loss of control. She smooths her jacket instinctively. “He looks at me and he sees a highborn girl with nothing to offer the Inquisition but a mark on my hand. He judges me entirely by who I was. Not by who I’m trying to be.”

    Summary

    In a world of heroes, sects of martial arts practitioners protect villages from the monsters and demons of both land and sea. All Might, the Master of the Yakushima Sect, has just come out of seclusion to declare his successor at the Celestial Summit. However, when great power is concentrated to a single location, no one should expect things to go smoothly.

    Izuku finds himself in a race against time in what starts out as an investigation of a theft that quickly snowballs into something far more sinister. As Izuku navigates his way through the halls of the Todoroki mansion, he also has to deal with his growing feelings for a certain hero of ice and fire, along with the dark family history painted across the backdrop of the estate. Eventually, he must answer to the question that every hero grapples with: Which is more important--the desire of the sect, or his personal desires?

    Summary

    When Harry's name comes out of the Goblet of Fire, he is kicked out of Gryffindor Tower by those he thought of as friends. It isn't until Snape finds him that the truth comes out about The Boy Who Lived

    ‘freaks sleep on the floor, freaks stay in cupboard, freaks don’t get to have friends.’ His Aunt and Uncles words filled his head as sobs finally overtook his small frame. This is were he belonged, on the dusty floor all alone. He should be near other people; nobody wants to be near a freak.
    That night Harry cried himself to sleep as panic and sobs wreaked havoc on his too-small body. He paid no mind to the cold or the aches in bones. When he woke up the next morning he refused to move. This was his place now, and this is where he would stay."

    Summary

    “Lady De Sardet?”

    She can’t quite muster the courage to look him in the eye, but years of training means she gets quite close.

    Court mask fixed firmly in place, she smiles as she reaches down to retrieve her cup of tea from its delicate saucer.

    “Your cousin, is he-”?” She takes a small, polite sip as her suitor tries again. "Is Constantin the reason you are not-?”

    The mask upon her face shudders as she swallows, and the tea tastes like bitter poison as it slips down her throat.

    Still she smiles.

    “I have no idea what you mean, monsieur.”

     

    There's always been something between them. A tension that neither has ever truly acknowledged to the other. But when faced with the unknown they will need to rely on the bond between them, and when tragedy hits the clarity it brings could very well destroy everything.

    A slow-burn about the complex and layered relationship between Lady De Sardet and Constantin beginning before the events of Greedfall. Will have spoilers from the game in later chapters. Rated for future chapters.
