    Summary

    There is very little he knows for certain, but he knows this: his name is Daniel LaRusso. His feet are bare and his clothes hang in tatters. He knows that he's far from home, that he is scared, and alone, and that he's forgotten something terrible. He knows that he needs to move, to run, and that his legs might not hold him if he tries. And finally, Daniel knows that thirty minutes ago he was completely and unequivocally dead.

    -

    Daniel disappeared without a trace in December of 1985. In January of 1989, he comes back but he comes back... different. Plagued by guilt, Johnny is desperate to set things right and will go to any lengths to do so. Even if that means getting his hands a little bloody.

    Summary

    Where does a heart come from? Does it descend from light or float up from the darkness? Can it be made from vivarium echoes? If they're stolen, can they be used by something else? Where did a heart come from and why were they so painful to keep, to protect? Roxas had no idea what he'd do with one of his own, yet alone three of them.

    Summary

    A semblance of disgust flickers within him. But more prominently, is intrigue. Joseph realizes, not without a modest amount of horror, that he is intrigued by the strange turn this has taken. He is intrigued by Aesop.

    Summary

    “He is fated to die today, the fourteenth of April in 2019.” Andromache tilted her head as she studied Yusuf’s body. “That is immutable. He has already died. But we could give him another chance at the day.”
    “Restart it?” Nile leaned forward eagerly. “We could warn him, or stop-”
    “No. He has to thwart death on his own terms, and it will hunt him throughout this process. He will repeat this day, with memory of those before it, and if at the end of seven days, he survives to April fifteenth with his soulmate at his side, he can live. If he dies on the seventh day, then that is his final death and time will progress from there. Is that understood?” 

    Joe is an art restoration technician who has been falling in love with Nicky, a baker near him, for the last two months. He's sure they're soulmates and is confident in their future together.
    The only catch is his death. At least he's got a spirit guide on his side to avoid it.

    Summary

    (Scattered AU)

    The new server turns out to be a death trap.

    Grian is very aware of this, given it's his death messages filling up their broken chat. When he's finally saved from his glitched spawn, it becomes rapidly clear that none of them will remain the people they started as.

    Summary

    The world of Menarths has gone for a long period of time without any disturbances of the greater peace (for the most part, excluding the time there was a war between the country of Mistfold and South Pelinath, but that's besides the point), but when the princess of Mistguard disappears through a treacherous gate on the other side of the known world, the King holds a tournament to search for the best fighters in the land. Hopefully, in creating a solid party of adventurers, the princess can be safely found and brought back to the place she belongs.

    His hires include the paladin Harvard Lee, infamous for solving a werewolf problem without silver, a sportfuck bard from a noble house, Aiden Kane, a monk from a part of Lowtown with a heart of gold (and, perhaps, a surprising understanding of the blade), Eugene Labao, the renowned monster hunter Seiji Katayama, traveled from the largest city in the world just to be hired, and an underdog fighter who cost a lot of people their bets, Nicholas Cox.

    This was, to put it lightly, an utterly terrible idea.

    (Note: I'm blatantly unsure of whether or not the violence will be too graphic, so I put the warning on to be safe, just keep that in mind before reading please!)

    Summary

    Fear is inescapable. A burden that never fully leaves, but just shows up every once in a while. Fear visited her when she was saving Mu from the TNT and mafia, fear visited her while fighting the Mafia boss, even without the ability to die, The fear of death still remained. It was always going to be scary, whether you can die or not. She was fearing the pain, the fight, death, and just wanted the thing to be all over. Fear visited her when Mu realized the power of the timepieces, and fear visited her when she saw that both birds were using the timepieces as props, worried of their soon-to-be corruption. Fear visited her when she got that phone call. That fear struck her once more as the elevator was descending, she needed to get her timepiece back.

     

    (or, What if both directors lost the award ceremony?)
    (Yes, I'm aware Killing Two Birds exists, i just wanted to spice it up a bit)

    Summary

    What is a body but the sum of its material parts? No matter how mangled it gets, it can always be fixed if patched up right. At least, that was a grieving man's final thoughts as the monster he'd created was the one to brutally end his life.

    All Might, unaware of the circumstances surrounding the sole survivor of that small house, took in the seemingly inoffensive child. He would soon learn of the unusual and horrific truth behind the boy that was once called Izuku Midoriya and learn that some lines are not meant to be crossed no matter the desire.

    Summary

    Asterope Malfoy had always wanted nothing more than to make herself gold, whether it meant being her parents' golden child or breaking free from her family's extremely dark and shockingly evil reputation. After being sorted into Hufflepuff, Asterope chose the latter of options, she changed her name, disowned herself from her family, and did everything her family wouldn't do. The last thing she wanted was to wind up in the Triwizard Tournament, have a year long identity crisis, all the while falling in love with her best friend and yet, that's exactly what happens.

    While Asterope couldn't have predicted that she would be tossed into a game of survival alongside Harry Potter, she should've known fate would have it out for her. After all it was well known that things never did go easy for the members of the noble and most ancient house of Black who tried to free or better themselves. Traitors to the Black family have met cruel fates dating back centuries and unfortunately, Asterope was no exception. She would find herself the centre of decade old prophecy that could end with her dying as a villain painted black rather than living as a hero made of gold.

    Summary

    By his understandably shoddy memory, Jaskier had died over 1300 times since he first drew breath several hundred years ago.

     Somehow, none of those deaths ever seemed to hurt as much as the dreams of Geralt.
