    Summary

    After the battle against Nyx Avatar and Nyx, Makoto Yuuki and Kotone Shiomi gave their life to form the Great Seal using her bonds, blocking Erebus from reaching Nyx and enacting the Fall. Everything continues like normal until after March 5th 2010, when the two protagonists "died" holding out their promise to make it to graduation, the two universes naturally merged together into one as the events taking places in both are too similar to be seperated, rendering the Seal sacrifices to be overkill (as it only takes 1 human soul and no more). Now no longer needed for the Seal, Kotone is now brought back into the real world again on a new adventure, this time meeting some familiar faces in that one dream she had.

    Summary

    The Shil'vati, a giant, purple-skinned and tusked alien race of mostly women, have conquered Earth- and want humanity.

    Elias, a disaffected and neglected human child who feels his culture is being eroded, wants to fight back.

    Brought up in a wealthy but distant household, he's forced to watch as his world is twisted into an image found pleasing to Humanity's alien overlords. Piece by piece, history and culture rewritten to form a more convenient narrative for its occupiers. Shil’vati Nobles slowly stifle any chance Humanity might have to express themselves, or fight back.

    Even before the invasion, young Elias didn't have many options to make himself heard.

    But as the dreaded Emperor of Earth, he just might.

    Summary

    "Be the person you want to be." For some these words mean surpass your perceived limitations or disregard the things holding you back. Other take it to mean that it's a right to be who they want to be without consequences. Minami Hanajima didn't think these words would spread so far or that people would blame her for their poor decisions. She chose the path to become a hero to change things internally, but doing so might be more difficult than even she foresaw.

    Welcome Advocate Hero: Minami

    Ikigai: loosely understood as 'reason for being'; an intersection of something which gives your life worth, meaning, and purpose.

    Summary

    At the end of his life, Harry is given the chance to alter the course of the dark reality his son Albus and Albus' friend Scorpius create when they use a Time-Turner to save Cedric Diggory's life. With the hindsight bestowed by a lifetime as Auror, Head of the DMLE, husband, father, and friend, he will make very different choices as a seventeen-year-old wizard to try and save the people and the world he loves.

    But if he has to do it all over again, simply defeating Voldemort won't be good enough: there's a never-ending scroll of tragedies to avert and one newly-installed Headmaster of Hogwarts to talk around (if he manages to get a word in edgewise before getting hexed). The good news is, as always: he's not fighting alone.

    Summary

    The first time Hitoshi met Bakugou Katsuki, he’d called him arrogant, sent him a challenge, and basically pulled every trick in the book to piss him off. To him, Bakugou had been someone who had everything handed to him on a silver platter—a powerful quirk and enough strength to make it into the hero course—where Hitoshi had to fight tooth and nail for every little thing in his life.

    He’d thought it’d be just that—a clash with the angry boy, and maybe another face-off at the Sports Festival—but it seemed that there were more situations where they’d meet. Far too many odd run-ins which left him frustrated and confused.

    Coincidences. Perhaps there was something bigger at play.

    It didn’t matter, he supposed. What did matter was the fact that Hitoshi had gotten to know Bakugou on a level far more personal than he could have ever anticipated, and he’d discovered that they had a lot more in common than meets the eye.

    Summary

    Evan Hansen has been trying to get himself together. He wants to prove to himself that he can be self sufficient and not crushingly mentally ill. He packs up and moves to New York City, prepared for a city that is every bit as cynical as he is.

    But then, there's a gorgeous guy on Evan's train. Connor, with his vintage new wave charm and his devastating smile. At first Evan dismisses it as just a fleeting infatuation, one of those public transit daydreams. He's fallen in love with plenty of strangers for a few moments before. This is nothing.

    Until, of course, it isn't. As they get to know one another, Evan becomes the sort of person who looks forward to his commute because of his subway crush. So, naturally there's a snag: Connor isn't someone with a vintage sense of style. He's literally vintage. Unstuck in time and trapped on the subway.

    ****

    Summary

    In the near future, social media is consumed with World War III. Pro and Con accounts upload sensitive materials constantly, feeding the machine that is society obsessed with the current thing. Everywhere pictures, videos, drone footage and security camera footage of servicemen of all sides are being liked, shared, and commented on. Snuff films and gore aren't contained to the Dark Web anymore. Access is as easy as a Twitter account and society doesn't care if it's sensitive or not: they want to see it, and some will pay big money for it.

    In the midst of the conflict, a squad of United States Marines are sent on a patrol along the outskirts of enemy Russian territory and everything goes wrong. Captured by enemy forces and brought back to a unmarked prison as prisoners of war, a sergeant must watch as one of his own is cruelly abused and tortured.

    Unbeknownst to the squad, the whole world is also watching.

    This story is inspired by current events where everything is monitored, judgements are made, and the internet is forever. This is fiction, but it's happening now.
