    Summary

    Wei Ying has a lot on his plate right now.

    It’s finals week -- which isn’t so bad. He’s never had to study much to do well in classes. But that just means that things are that much more tense with Jiang Cheng, who, as far as Wei Ying can tell, only takes study breaks long enough to glare at Wei Ying where he sits on the couch playing video games.

    It’s not studies that have Wei Ying stressed out. It’s everything else. It’s the lack of participants for the research trial he’s coordinating. It’s jiejie and her impending marriage to His Royal Douchebag Jin Zixuan. It’s the part-time work at the palliative care facility. It’s Wen Ning’s worsening condition. It’s Wen Qing talking about dropping out to care for her brother and Wen Yuan. It’s the way Wen Yuan never seems to have enough food.

    So, yeah. There’s enough on Wei Ying’s plate already, meaning it’s not entirely welcome when he comes home and finds a man standing in his bedroom. A man in extravagant white robes, a ribbon tied around his forehead, long hair gathered into a topknot, fist clutching a sword at his side, who asks him, “Where am I?”

    Summary

    Before Anders was the wrong man in the Inquisition, he made the wrong choice in Kirkwall – at least according to some. A prequel to The Wrong Man, this story is set in the same version of the universe and tells the story of Anders' life in the City of Chains before he became the Inquisitor.

    Summary

    Tony lost Pepper in the Snap. What he gains, what EARTH gains, is a 'gift' from Thanos: Soulmates. Some say that the mad Titan used the stones to do this out of respect for Earth's role in his grand design, others say it's to make those left behind complacent, docile-- even grateful.

    Tony isn't grateful. He's pissed. His Words are a cruel slap in the face, and the whole concept is bullshit. He spends a year doing right by the world with his company and then settles down to build his lake house. Tony falls for his smart, gorgeous architect as easy as breathing, all the while feeling self-righteous about the whole 'inevitability' of Soulmates. He's beat the system, fallen in love the old-fashioned way. All Tony has to do is get her to actually speak to him, instead of by text or email.

    And then she does. She says his Words.

    Summary

    The Warrior of Light has done the Source a tremendous amount of good, but he is only one man, and perhaps over the course of his journey a very important cause may have passed by unnoticed. Bound to the Crystal Tower, the Exarch has suffered and toiled for more than a hundred years to see his dearest inspiration safe, to save two worlds. Yet...what is his faith built upon if his inspiration was never there in the first place? And what is the Crystal Tower, that the Allags should have no record of its completion, that the people of the First should have no memory of its arrival?

    This is the story of my miqo'te Warrior of Light Evi'a Llyrhai's time on the First. This will loosely follow Shadowbringers, but there will be a number of divergences from the main plot that will likely increase as the story goes on.

    Summary

    This, this is his warzone, his shell shock, his PT-whatever letters Bucky wants to call it; Steve doesn’t care. Because it's here. Not a Hydra facility, a plane, or an entire world war. This is what will break his brain, in fact it has, already it blurs the edges of his vision, tunneling, drawing Steve's conscious away from the reality that's in front of him. The disconnect is so far, further than the distance he watched Bucky fall. The worst part is that Steve’s still holding on, he has Bucky in his arms, hands gripping tight and pushing hard against blood that is slipping through his fingers, promising useless words with a soundless mouth and praying hard, but nothing is doing anything but sending Bucky closer to death.

    If he’s not there yet.

    Summary

    Summary

    “I never knew Professor Notfound knew your boyfriend over there.” He says to Sapnap.
    Sapnap gives him a look. “Yeah, well, I never knew you were into hot professors who look like they’re fresh out of Vogue, but I guess even after years of friendship, some things remain in the dark.”
    “Fuck off, Sap. He’s not my type.”
    “I never said he was. I said he was hot.” Sapnap smiles at him provokingly, knowing full well how to push Dream’s buttons.
    “That’s inappropriate.” Dream replies weakly, knowing that the boy knows him like the back of his palm.
    “Sure, Dream. He’s looking over here though.”

    Summary

    Maybe this time he'll stay...

    Hajime attends university as a Theatre Major and is stage managing this semester's production of the musical "Cabaret". The professor directing the show keeps casting Nagito in shows Hajime works on, not realizing how distracting Nagito can be to Hajime. But, maybe this time, Hajime will be able to separate himself from the production and be brave about his feelings.

    You do NOT need to know the musical "Cabaret" to enjoy this fic, but you will enjoy it more if you do! I highly recommend finding a production of the 1998 revival.

    Summary

    At first, you only—really, really—wished Eren Jaeger didn’t look so much like Isabel. But he had stared at you and you’d been stumbling half-blind around him ever since. And those were definitely bite marks on his thumbs.

    At first, Eren only—really, really—wished you weren’t friends with Jean Kirschtein. But you had stared at him and he’d been trying to keep your eyes on him ever since. And that was definitely a knife in your pocket.

    Summary

What if someone else was waiting for a chance to see the light of day again, biding their time in the depths of Hybern. Follow their journey towards acceptance and belonging in a world of death and wonders.

    Follows acowar's story pretty closely with some minor changes.

    *Does not take anything from acosf into account because I made this story long before I knew the book was coming*

    Summary

    When Marinette falls through one of Bunnyx's time burrows, she never expected to wake up in an alternate universe, yet here she is. Hawk Moth is gone, replaced by Le Papillon, and nothing is the same. Her best friend is Chloé Bourgeois. She's (apparently) madly in love with Félix Graham de Vanily. The only thing that makes sense is Ladybug.

    Marinette can't go back now, she knows. The only thing she can do now is live.

    (or, an AU where Marinette Dupain-Cheng falls into the universe of the Miraculous anime PV and discovers her true self along the way.)

    Summary

    He's cruel, mean, and sadistic. Lumine cannot fathom why he has the followers he does, but she won't fall into his hands like the rest of them.

    It was unknown to her at that time how such a stance would cause the biggest uproar the schools ever seen.

    This is the silly drama filled high school/college parody AU nobody asked for filled with Lumine not giving a shit and Childe trying to buy his way out of problems. (Hint: neither of these things work on feelings.)

    Summary

    After he commits every single weapon in the hold to memory, Din finds himself cataloging more and more things about Skywalker instead, small observations that carve out a space in his mind unbidden.

    ---

    As much as Din likes to tell himself that he’s just been taking a well-deserved break, the truth is that for the six months following their daring rescue he’s been nothing but truly and utterly lost. That is until Luke Skywalker gives him a ship and hires him to help figure out what the hell the Empire needed the Child’s blood for.

    As they drift through the empty void of hyperspace, they slowly find unexpected companions in each other and realize their respective paths might not be as set as they once thought.

    Summary

    Ingrid's type in men is predictable.

    She has a consistent record. Sweet, gentle dorks who like literature or art. Really, really sweet dorks, which is why Sylvain never really could hate them. Even if, well, he wanted to be the one to go on picnics with her, buy her nice (not too expensive, she'd strangle him) things and to be called hers.

    Hers. And her, his. That'd be nice. Sigh.

    But it's cool, it's fine, as it has been since Continental Year 3018, when she was with Ashe. Or in Continental Year 3020, when she was with Ignatz.

    Yeah. He can wait a little longer. Even though it's Continental Year 3028 and he's thirty and he's been in love with her since he was twenty-one and Dorothea is getting sick of his cowardice and might out him and—

    Oh, yeah. So:

    What the fuck is up with Claude von fucking Riegan?
