    Summary

    Jake was supposed to keep Amy distracted for the rest of the night so she wouldn't die of anxiety while she waited for the results of her equivalency exam to be released. But because he's an idiot he brought up the nervous game to his attractive, opposite sex coworker that he had 100% non-platonic feelings for even though he knew she couldn't possibly feel the same way. He thought his partner was going to roll her eyes at him and dismiss it as immature, but when she doesn't...

    Summary

    After some unexpected recent developments on Steven Universe, I found myself trying to piece together my thoughts in hindsight. Most (but not all!) of these will be focusing on Lars and the humans. Sorry. In my excuse, we're in Season 5 and I have thoughts.

    First chapter is a spoiler-heavy table of contents.

    Summary

    You're known by many names, outside of the confines of your own rooms.

    The Dragon King of Derse. King Dirk. The son of the late King David and Queen Rosaline. The prince who became a king too soon, the ugly dark crown atop your head sat there too early. The last hope your kingdom has left to push back against the apparently unstoppable force of an invasion that's lasted for too long.

    It's with the weight of your very identity, of your ancestors and their accomplishments, of your land and position, that you asked for help.

    Summary

    "Shit," she growls, dragging herself to him. He doesn't look too bad off, a little roughed up, easy enough to wake with a jostle, and as soon as his eyes snap open, she's hissing, "what the hell are you doing here? How are you here? You shouldn't be- oof!"

    He's got her gathered in his arms, laughing with a manic kind of relief, "Oh my god, oh my god, I found you!"

    She sighs, but latches onto him, incapable of denying herself the comfort of a gentle touch, not after- not after everything. She closes her eyes, breathes him in, lemon rinds and snowdrops and Pack, lets herself melt into the touch, soft and tender.

    "You found me," She says, "but now somebody needs to find you, huh?"

    He pulls away a little startled, blinks at her, smiles sheepishly, "Uhh, yeah. I guess so."

    She huffs out a breath and cuffs him, "Idiot."

    [Or: The one where Stiles finds Derek's missing Betas, gets captured and tortured by the Alphas, all while everyone else looks for him. Add a few creepy dreams, some wings, and a whole lotta magic.]

    Shun and Yuya are alone in caring for their terminally ill younger sister, Ruri, after their parents disappear. However, when Ruri dies during a trip to the zoo, she is magically brought back to life by a mysterious hippo hat. The hat possesses her and orders the brothers to find the Hippodrum, if they want Ruri's miracle to continue.

    Although neither of them have any idea what the Hippodrum even is, there's no way they're going to let their sister die. Together, and along with a mysterious cast all tied together by the same long ago terrorist incident, they will search for the true meaning of the Hippodrum, and decide what it is that they want to protect most of all.

    Summary

    Tensions are high between Cole and Stefan— they've done things they shouldn't have, and now they're stuck wondering how to deal with their feelings for each other. Stefan thinks Cole's too good for someone like him, and Cole's held back by his dreadful track record. It doesn't help that all eyes are on them as up-and-coming Homicide detectives, judgement coming from peers, superiors, and citizens alike.

    They hope nothing will change, but with someone as observant as Roy Earle, that's practically impossible.

    Summary

    the girl sat fat with child, amade of sex and tin, the red-soaked supper of any night filling her mouth and her belly, upon the floor upon the land where the great sea-god brought down his mighty weapon and cleaved the world in three. A godless dinner, a meal unpresipatrided, a line of three and her in the middle, unremarked and afraid, eating and hoping no peril would come of it.

    Dinner, among the greentree eternal unyielding when the winter comes, among the smooth stone banks of the river slipping out to sea, among the harvest plains to feed an army. Among the land of fairies, oaths made and forgotten, history fantastic. Among the land of gods, one and seven, her septon's candle melting into her skin. Among the land of dragons, kind, gentle dragons to save the maids and give them their lands, and then be destroyed by cruel, blundering knights. Among the land of war, always war, harvest burning, trees burning, stones burning, army burning. The cool blue river always red with blood. Silverfish drifting up to surface.
