    Summary

    George hadn’t heard from Clay in many years, his last letter lay on George’s nightstand, worn and memorized down to the swirls of Clay’s clumsy signature at the bottom. He had left many years ago, leaving nothing but memories of a blonde boy with endless determination and sweet laughter that had blurred as the years passed by.

    (or: George's childhood best friend Clay leaves George and their rural village behind to turn up years later as the infamous mercenary Dream.)

But when a five year old Max Bennett dies unexpectedly and a now seventeen year old Bianca di Angelo falls into Elysium, Jason Grace doesn't know what to think. But people falling from the sky should be the least of his worries. In order to go back to where they came from, the three of them must face the Death Trials, a series of tests to prove if one is worthy of returning to the mortal world. Jason doesn't know what the three of them will have to face in the trials but he and the others know one thing for sure: Nico cannot find out.

    Summary

    "Was I just a piece in your game the whole time?" She barely made these words out, as her hands found their way through her messy locks of hair.

    "I didn't mean to mess up your chess game, Azriel. All I ever wanted was to just figure out who I was supposed to be- not fake my life for years," Diem went on, as she faced away from him. Her hands were shaking now, as Azriel still walked towards her.

    "I-I'm sorry, Diem. I didn't mean.. I didn't mean to make you fly so high, okay? It wasn't my intention for these things to happen, I told you to have an exit pl-"

    Diem cuts him off. "I didn't think you'd given me wings made of wax, Azriel. My life will not be a myth," She declares, and walks back into the labyrinth.

    -

    In which a half Fae, half Illyrian woman may be all the hope Azriel needs, and Azriel may be all of the reassurance Diem needs.

    Summary

    Jimin knew he owed his life to a boy, but he never found out who that boy was. After the worst night of his life, Jimin dreamed about how much worse it could have been if the boy with the golden-brown eyes hadn't been there. In order to get his mind off that night, Jimin agrees to put his relationship on hold to go to Tokyo with his friends for the summer. Fatefully, the boy who saved his life that night has a ticket for the very same flight to Japan's most famous city.

    ...

    Jungkook moved closer, the water rippling around him. The lights from the hot tub illuminated Jimin's face as he began to lean in. He smiled at the way Jimin's lips parted.

    "My heart is beating so fast," Jimin whispered, his breath becoming shallow and desperate.

    Jungkook placed his hand on Jimin's bare chest, feeling the rapid rhythm of his heart. He then grasped Jimin's wrist, putting his palm on his own heart. "So is mine."

    At that, Jimin leaned even closer, his breath mixing with Jungkook's. He stalled a bit before wetting his lips, feeling Jungkook's heart beat faster as their lips collided.

    Summary

    There was a butchered dragon on the forest floor.
    ---
    Wei Wuxian smiled and folded his hands on the tabletop. "It's a good plan. You'd need to pick terrain not too close to any major towns or landmarks, to be sure they don't suspect a trap. Has to be natural though. Who would take a dragon out after they were attacked for trying to keep it safe?"
    Jin Ling raised both of his brows. "I'm a Jin. We're known for being pompous and showing off. If anyone would take a dragon out after something like that, it would be the Jin sect."
    -—
    When Jin Ling discovers a butchered dragon in the woods, and then his friends find a small nest of dragon eggs, a case unravels before them. But like most things in their lives, it’s never just A Case. It has to be dangerous, and include far more violence than any of them actually like. The Juniors have to navigate taking care of a baby dragon, keeping each other alive, and tracking down the man that dared to kill a dragon in the pursuit of power.

    Summary

    No powers AU: Lena is taken into Witness Protection as she is set to testify against Lex. WITSEC places her in Midvale as a flower shop owner where she meets local teacher Kara, her cop sister Alex, and neighboring shop owner Jess.

    This is my first attempt at a first fanfic... Likely multi-chapter mix of dram-edy with action/ suspense sprinkled about. Not 100% sure where this will all lead or how quickly I'll be able to write/ post.

    Summary

    When living in the middle of nowhere, waiting becomes a game. Waiting for someone, or something, that will change the horizon in front of you.

    Feliciano has been waiting for a change, and these strangers that have accidentally ended up in his town might be the answer he's been looking for--specifically, the strange German man who seems awfully serious.

    However, his brother Lovino would rather he become comfortable and content with what they have, just like he has learned to do: settle. But maybe, just maybe, the strange happy Spanish man can help break that hardened heart -- or so Feliciano dreams.

    Summary

    The silence was deafening. Her heart was beating against her chest and her breathing was starting to quicken. Mikasa could feel her pulse pumping in her ears and on the sides of her head; it was an erratic pattern that she wished Armin wouldn’t be able to hear.

    Erwin opened the paper.

    Summary

    Sara Lance (loud, awake at weird times and annoyingly smug) starts as a freshman at Legends University and becomes roommates with sophomore Ava Sharpe (structured, uptight and trying to get some goddamn work done). They don't hit it off, to put it lightly. Prepare yourself for a lot of tension, back-and-forth challenging, a wild but secretly depressed Sara, and eventual smut. Slowburn, y'all.

    Simpler said: the university/roommate AU we definitely don't need but still have a weakness for.

    Summary

    Wooyoung's eyes stung as they shuttered open. A hot white light filtered in first, burning his pupils.

    Was this heaven? Was it supposed to hurt this badly? He took a moment to assess his condition: limbs in tact, definitely not dead, and holy shit—who the hell was that guy with his hand pressed to his chest?

    “No need to thank me,” the man grumbled. His voice was deep and gritty, laced with what Wooyoung immediately recognized as a heavy dose of annoyance. “Don’t look for me after this, got it? I was never here.”

    (Alternatively: After waking up from a fatal fall, Wooyoung develops the strange ability to freeze time and the inability to die, and a strange man might have something to do with it)
