    Summary

    Joan is eleven years old when she first realizes that there is something different about her: she can cause impossible things to happen that defy explanations. Eventually she discovers an entire secret world of people like her - atypicals - who have all kinds of strange abilities that she can use while in close proximity to them. Being atypical carries its own share of dangers, however, and as Joan dives deeper into the atypical world while keeping her own ability a secret, she has to decide how much she is willing to risk as she finds answers, friendship, and ambition waiting for her.

    Summary

    "I’ll be honest, I don’t often take new patients, and I want to make sure that the service I provide here is a good fit for your needs. Would you like to start with the reason you decided to set up an appointment with me today?”

    Jon twists the newspaper clipping in his hands again, then notices Dr. Bright looking down at it. His face gets hot, and he quickly tucks it into his pocket. “I, uhm. I saw your ad. It, ah, caught my eye, I suppose you might say.”

    Dr. Bright smiles. It’s a genuine smile, one that crinkles her eyes at the corners, but it also does very little to help Jon gauge her response. “Of course. It’s not exactly the most… typical method for advertising a therapist. Was there any particular reason it drew your attention?”

    Jon chews on his lip. “Well, ah. I don’t know that the sort of problems I have could be helped by any typical therapist.”

    ----

    Or, Somewhere Else, Jon finds a therapist.

    Summary

    It occurs to Mark that maybe he should be ashamed of the pathetic empty box of photos he calls a home, but he doesn't have the energy. Just being near Damien, just walking in silence, feels like a drain on his reserves. At least he knows better than to drink.

    He's not sure why he thinks that's worth any points when they end up in his bed anyway, hardly ten minutes in the door.

    (In other words: 20k words of Damien being a kicked puppy and Mark being spiteful, but horny.)

    Summary

    PODFIC of write_away's fic my power was constricted in my heart
     

    Prince Byron Marcus Bryant - or, as he prefers to be called, Mark - has been in love with his servant and food taster, Oliver Ritz, ever since he was accidentally poisoned five years ago, but that's hardly his biggest problem right now. The King, his father, deeply despises aberrants, people with abilities outside the norm, and Mark... well, at least he's not the heir. The king wants him to be normal; Mark just wants to belong. The tension comes to a head at Mark's sister's engagement feast when a slow-acting drug gets past Oliver's test, and both men find themselves incapacitated and kidnapped.

    To their surprise, they are rescued from their certain fate by a trio of young aberrant -- or atypical, as they call themselves -- women trying to gather supplies for their camp. Despite misgivings and fear of the King's vengeance, the girls grudgingly take the men back to their settlement of atypicals in the woods where they can begin to discover who they really want to be.

    Tl;dr: A vaguely fantasy medieval royalty AU about finding love, trust, family, and acceptance when you’re not sure you deserve it.

    Summary

    The year is 1815, many years since Samantha Barnes was last home, and she desperately hopes that she'll be able to hide her trips from the new visitors on her doorstep. Mark Bryant hopes that he too can keep his shit together, even when a face from the past resurfaces at a masquerade ball and threatens to pull his whole life apart.

     

    She takes a breath and turns the knob, swinging the door open to reveal a man and a woman stood waiting on her doorstep.
    “Hello!” the man exclaims with a smile. “I knew there was someone here.”
    “I’m sorry about my brother,” the woman grimaces. “We’d just heard you arrived here and wanted to welcome you to the area. My name is Joan Thompson and this is my brother, Mark Bryant.”
    “Nice to meet you, m’lady,” Mark winks and Joan nudges him in the side without breaking eye contact with Sam.
    “I’m Samantha,” Sam rushes to say. “Samantha Barnes, that is.”
    “It’s lovely to meet you, Miss Barnes,” Joan smiles, her tone friendly but her eyes sharp and critical. Sam becomes painfully aware of the dust that still covers her dress.
    “Oh, I — thank you, I suppose,” she mutters nervously. “It’s odd being back here.”

    Summary

    Sam has two goals for the summer: adjusting to her new job at the AM and navigating how to stay friends with Mark in the aftermath of their breakup. But between that and taking an opportunity to expand the scope of what she can do with her ability, she eventually comes to a realization about her feelings for Joan that threatens to upend the entire balance of her life. Because nothing good can ever come out of falling for your co-worker/friend/former therapist/ex-boyfriend's sister, right? (She's wrong about that, by the way.)

    Summary

    The fire licks up and down his arms. It doesn’t hurt nearly as much as he’d have expected it to-- and, though he buries the admission deep down the moment it arises in him, it doesn’t hurt as much as he wants it to. In fact, it doesn’t hurt at all. It feels warm, it tingles a bit, but it’s nothing like the searing heat that had burst out of him when he’d found Caleb.

    No, what hurts is the sight of the front door Harkness Tower. The candles burning sadly down to little puddles of wax on the steps, the photos of Caleb that are starting to curl with water damage from the last few days’ rain, the drooping bouquets, the prayers and “gone but not forgotten”s and the way Caleb’s name has been spelled out in candles that have long since melted down.

    Or: Adam gets to the tower too late.

    Summary

    Not all individuals who encounter trauma will manifest; likewise, not all who manifest have faced trauma. In spite of this, there is a startling correlation. This paper will examine several case studies and seek to understand how we may more closely study this phenomenon.
    ---
    Adam can’t breathe.

    It’s worse - worse than what, he doesn’t know anymore, because his brain is mush and his head is spinning and his memories refuse to contextualize - hospital, bathtub, locker room, sticky sharp pain, bandages that itch, scars like moonlight - but he knows it’s worse. The world has closed in on him.
    ----
    A canon divergent AU where Adam Hayes manifests as an atypical during Safe House that explores his journey as he struggles to control his new ability, contend with his family’s shady history with the atypical community, and communicate with the people he loves. Framed with snippets from an academic paper about atypical manifestation that explores how trauma can be a trigger for many atypical abilities.

    Summary

    Losing Adam was blue. Blue like Caleb had never known. More blue than any of Adam's deep oceans of emotion that he let Caleb close enough to feel. More murky than the blue of missing old friends or family. Tinged with the purple of regret, orange anxieties of what ifs, and slimy icky sludge of something Caleb still hadn't quite grasped.

    AKA: Alice makes Caleb listen to Taylor Swift and it reminds him of how much he misses Adam after they kind of break up. Very angsty but if I can write the whole thing it'll end up alright :) Takes place between seasons two and three.

    Summary

    Caleb Widoghast has been out of the AM for years now. He’s finally got a person he feels comfortable with and a way to keep researching while saving up enough money to far far away from the AM. Far enough that they won’t ever be able to track him down. But when he hears of people being kidnapped in a way that feels far too familiar, will he be able to match wits with his old teacher and prosecutor? Will his fire and the rag-tag group of atypical and atypical-adjacent people be strong enough to get everyone out safely?

    Summary

    But Frankie’s already up out of his seat, heading towards the door. The lights are starting to flicker and he has tiny sparks flying from his fingertips. He shoves his hands into his pockets, trying to stifle them. “I was right, I was--”

    He dives for the door. Sadie can hear his footsteps thudding down the hall.

    She runs after him.

    Or: Frankie isn’t doing great after the fight at Yale and someone needs to make him some hot cocoa and give him a hug.
