    Summary

    In an insignificant mining complex on an alien world, five individuals torn by harsh societal prejudices are thrown together in a quasi-random event. With a history of abuse and loneliness behind each of their personalities, they will learn to fend for each other among the cold and unforgiving stars. A killer, an amateur, a slave, a drunk, a freak -- collectively, they are what some now fear as... "5-Piece IKEA". (See tags for potential trigger warnings.)

    Summary

    The Venture Unit is known for being a generally shady organization. What with their dealings with pirate-gangs, corrupted planetary systems, trafficking, information dealing, and every other colour in this wide spectrum of highly illegal and dangerous flip-side of the GLA Universe. The Venture Unit, however, is not known for putting together a team of highly irregular Beings (even by galactic standards) and sending them off into a vague mission that has no particular objective other than to deliver a single OrTank to a remote planet in a System that has been proclaimed abandoned for the past millennium. So it’s safe to say that no single Being in this mission is particularly pleased- maybe except for the Zhak’gri but then again, he did say he was looking forward to, at least, blowing up a planetoid if he couldn’t blow up a moon.

    Summary

    "You think we’ve been deliberately misinformed,” he muttered. He hadn’t said it loudly, but he didn’t need to. They were all listening. There was a space of breath before Yoongi continued, “Don’t you?”

    “Misinformed implies they’ve lied to us,” Namjoon was quick to say. He held his hands up in a calming gesture. “I just think they’ve withheld information about what this mission we’ve picked up really entails.”

    “Misinformed, not informed, same thing,” Hoseok objected, pulling back from the window. He did not look happy. “Both gets you killed, Namjoon.”

    Summary

    Following a nearly fatal rescue mission, Lance can’t seem to shake the fear that he’s not as important as he thought he was. He wants to belong on the team, he wants them to trust him, but one thing happens after another and Lance isn’t sure anymore. Things are harder still, when the voice in his head comes to life.
    With repeated attacks from Space Pirates, family fights and the ever-growing fear that Lance isn’t good enough, and he’s barely keeping his head above the water.

    Lance doesn’t want this.
    This wasn’t the adventure he wanted in Space. And when Lance overhears the crew talking about him… Well, the things they say drive him away. He doesn’t even say goodbye before he leaves.

    Lance finds a new family among the stars, where he’s free to be himself. He’s happy, he’s accepted, he’s wanted.

    But Voltron didn’t mean to push Lance away. He is their brother, they love him, they miss him and they worry for him, somewhere out in space. Is he alone? Is he still fighting? Is he even alive?
    They don’t know and they can’t know until they find his trail, and follow it to the end?

     

    But is the Lance that left the same one they’ll find…?

    Summary

    The only reason they docked was to refuel. Deep space ports like Shiganshina Prime didn’t have much to offer other than black market trades. But a visit to a local tavern leads to more than Captain Levi bargained for.

    Summary

    One hundred twenty and one concubines fill the Imperial Emperor's court, and each of them hold a special place in His heart. But what of the newest of his ladies, bright eyed and fresh from the backwaters of the galaxy? What stories will she tell him upon a night dreary?

    Chapter One:
    "Hundreds of women comprised the ranks of the Emperor’s Chosen, each one hailing from across the galaxy. Humans, Avexians with their horns, Dillorions with their scales and feathers, Xhverge and their mysteries, dozens of species and houses had sent representatives to the Emperor’s court.
    For she was one of them now, and she would be just as desperate for the single glance of approval from an Overseer as they, her everything dependent on the whims and machinations of nameless and faceless men who each wore the lion-dog’s cowl of the Overseer.
    "
