    Summary

    A 4.7 on an eighteenth birthday is an anomaly. But then, so is Oikawa. Even Hajime knows that a 4.7 is a score Oikawa should be ecstatic over not— this. He doesn't know what to call it. Disappointment? If Shittykawa expected a 5.0, Hajime'll have to beat some sense into him.
     
    Hajime's own rating currently stands at 3.6. Above average. Good, even. Not good enough for his best friend, though. Mid-threes and high-fours don't hang out with each other.


    Alternate Universe based on the Nosedive episode of Black Mirror. //

    In a society where every interaction is rated on a scale of five stars, and initial ratings are given out to teenagers on their eighteenth birthdays, Oikawa gets rated a high-four. He starts to pull away from his friends and teammates, who have been rated mid-to-low-threes, without any explanation for his behavior.

    Years later, long after Iwaizumi has come to believe his time with Oikawa is over, he receives an invitation to a wedding, a phone call from a national volleyball team manager, and has run-in with someone from his past.

    Summary

    When All Might told him he couldn’t be a hero without a Quirk, Midoriya refused to give up his dream. For fourteen years, he had been told to quit, to accept the status quo silently, but he refuted all attempts to crush his dreams. Why should doubt from his favorite hero be handled any differently than the doubt from his mother, his teachers, and classmates?

    If he cannot become a hero the traditional way, then maybe it’s time for unconventional means.

    Summary

    They were attending a protest in DC, for the umpteenth time this year. But they couldn’t stay quiet. Not when the government was ripping children away from their parents, some of them infants, and kept them locked in cages. Steve had watched the reports with growing outrage, had seen how some decided the relevant thing to do here was to debate whether they were really kept in “cages” or if being allowed to watch Moana somehow made up for being taken away from your parents. Bucky had said “motherfucker” a lot.

    ---

    Steve and Bucky react to the Trump administration's policy of separating children from their parents and detaining them in camps.

    Summary

    There are over 560 federally recognized American Indian and Alaskan Native tribes in the U.S. and yet comprehensive data on violence against the women under tribal jurisdiction does not exist because no federal, Indian agency nor organization systematically collects this information. These women are relegated to the shadows.

    Names lost. Faces forgotten. Hope abandoned.

    Chief Mathias Stillwater has not forgotten them. He has not abandoned them. He will not give up on them without a fight, no matter the cost.

    Sheriff Cady Longmire has learned the truth. She has seen the faces of the forgotten. She has heard their names and watched justice pass them by, leaving them to their fates.

    No more.

    Summary

    Ever since his wife Lisa died, Dean Winchester has been willing to do anything for his son Ben. When Ben decided he wanted to adopt a halfling, Dean said yes without hesitation - provided they did so the right way, by giving whichever half-human they decided to bring home the respect and dignity it deserved. Half-octopi Castiel isn't exactly what they were looking for in a pet, but, then, they aren't exactly what Castiel was expecting for owners, either.

    Love, attraction, devotion, regardless of what you call it, It's not as simple as they'd have you believe ...

    Summary

    The greatest heroes, the greatest humans, were said to be made of steel. Unyielding and unrelenting. They were bright, in all senses of the word. Arima Akaiyoru was made of untreated iron. Weaker, uglier, and worthless on her own. She was dull, in all senses of the word. She was brittle; more likely to break than bend, even when the latter would be the best thing to do. But she'd change the world. She had to.

    For what else was there for her to do other than press on? To run, to walk, to crawl as far as she could even as she rusted away, even as she deteriorated? To fight, when it was the only thing she was good at?

    ...she couldn't remember.

    Summary

    Nog had noted several years back that the Federation may claim that everyone is equal but, in actuality, some races seemed more equal than others. This observation became fact in Nog’s mind after he was finally promoted to Captain and immediately transferred from an active job as a first officer to a wholly inconsequential desk job in San Francisco.

    A few weeks into the job, and he thought he would rip his own lobes off if he had to deal with one more stack of PADDs that was nearly as tall as he was. And, it seemed obvious that they would never give him a ship of his own. Nog told Jake about his suspicions but Jake seemed to think he would get a ship one way or another saying, “Even if they don’t hand you a ship then that’s no reason for you to sit back and take it. Just do what you’ve always done in the past - fight for what you want.”

    This is an original story set in the Star Trek universe and using canon characters like Nog and Jake as a jumping off point to explore a host of OCs and typical Star Trek plots. It was mostly inspired by this post about Captian Nog.

    Summary

    Petitions for the return of ancestral remains, cultural treasures and 'give us back our sacred relics, you bloody colonisers' were all well and good, but sometimes, it wasn't enough.

    That was when Addy stepped in.

    The British Museum called her a 'cultural terrorist'. Various art and antiquity museums cursed the very existence of the 'unknown thief'. No small number of indigenous populations considered her the next best thing to a time machine capable of preventing or mitigating colonisation in the first place.
    Addy's girlfriend called her 'The Museum Raider', because why should well-off white people have all the adventures? Especially when those 'adventures' were 'which colonising group gets to exploit the stereotyped natives under the guise of Good vs Evil'.

    It wasn't totally an altruistic cause, though.
    Sacred items were sacred for a reason, and the longer they were away from their rightful home, the weaker the protection they once provided grew. For all it's flaws, Addy liked the world not over-run by demons and beings from assorted hell-dimensions, and the barriers that held the darkness at bay grew weaker every year.

    The Museum Raider was the world's only hope.
