    Summary

    Ulysses is a high school dropout who kind of just hangs around. Ariadne has her own drama to deal with, Herakles has issues at home, Orpheus has been dumped by his girlfriend, and Oedipus, well... He just wants to get out. The five of them end up vaguely working together on a project, while their lives unfold around them.
    Oh, and all their teachers are immortal, because of course they are.

    Summary

    Toys play pretend, some are very good at pretending and the Toy Soldier might just be the best. It can't have silly real emotions, only easy pretend ones. It especially would never pretend to "love" anything, "love" was definitely a people thing.

    After all, a Toy couldn't be hurt if It was only a pretend thing.

    Summary

    After reading Eric Delano’s Statement and talking to Martin, Jon decides to follow through and gouge out his eyes to try and escape monsterhood. He doesn’t expect to wake up years earlier in his old flat, where everything’s almost the way it used to be. He doesn’t expect to have more eyes than before, and new problems, and new nightmares.
    But he also doesn’t expect Martin to be a Mechs fan, or the chance to actually change things this time around.
    As it turns out, sometimes you need to give yourself permission to heal, and be open to the kindness and help of others in order for life to improve.
    And that’s definitely not just the case for Jon.

    OR: monster!mechs!jon travels back in time into a slightly different reality, and is bullied into healing through the power of found family.
    Everyone will live and there’s a happy ending... but until then, I'll do what I want. There shall be angst and fluff and crack-treated-seriously, and not everyone who’s dead in canon is dead here. I will basically rewrite everything, so … it's going to be LONG! Defintely a slow burn in far more ways than one ♡

    Summary

    Lyfrassir didn’t know what they had expected, being the last surviving person of a cosmically destroyed galaxy. There hadn’t been much planning involved other than ‘Run’. So, it’s lucky that the narrative finds it suiting to find them. Just in time.

    Summary

    “No sign of her?” Raphaella asks, hands on her hips. “Not even a scorched tree branch or something?”

    “Nothing,” Tim replies. “I’ve scanned the area a half-dozen times, and if my eyes can’t pick up anything, there’s nothing to see.”

    Jonny rolls his eyes. “You have a lot of confidence in those eyes, given that we’re the ones who put them in your dumb skull.”
