    Summary

    "So what was the plan? You corner me in the bathroom, and then what? You piss me off until I beat you up and call it a night?"

    Is it so obvious?

    Jon can't help but let out a mirthless laugh at that as Tim's fists tighten on his collar.

    "Actually yes."

    Summary

    Naruto loses Jiraiya in the in-between of painstaking stages.
    It's only fair he slowly learns to let go of his mentor in stages, too.

    (Or: Sasuke has the uncanny ability to show up with the worst timing, and he does so in the aftermath of Pain's destruction, in the thick of Naruto's grief. Naruto experiences first hand death through every breath in and every breath out, through a loss so fathomless it taints his world gray, but past has a funny way of catching up and Sasuke somehow takes the plunge to call him out on his bluff. Because, for once, Sasuke is the one who helps Naruto save himself.)

    The twist? "I think Naruto is haunted by a friendly ghost."

    Summary

    War doesn’t simply begin at one specific moment. It simmers under the surface, bubbling up like hot lava in different places at a time until it bursts and covers everything, the way a volcano erupts and covers all the earth around it with devastating substance.

    His war began a long time ago.

     

    “Don’t what, Granger? Don’t tell you what it was like? But everyone else wants to know. Does it hurt your fable on how all Death Eaters think this thing is a gift? On how we’re all willing to serve him forever, until death do us part? How we’re all sadistic shits who get off on torture and pain?”

    Summary

    While his husband, Gabriel, and half of the tribe's braves are away on the quarterly hunting trip, Sam and the remainder of his village are attacked by bandits and slavers. Those who aren't killed are taken to be sold. Sam wasn't supposed to be taken, but his assistance on keeping his fellow braves safe, get him captured as well. Terrible things happen along the road and after the market where they are sold, but Sam and the ladies keep the faith that someday they will get free and get back to their homeland.

    Little do they know that help is on the way in the small but powerful form of one wrathful husband named Gabriel.

    (Loosely inspired by Horizon: Zero Dawn video game. I like writing tribe stories and their usage of all sorts of tribes (and bandit slavers) jumpstarted my brain).

    Summary

    Sometimes, I wish we were young again, when we could run around, carefree, without a single thing to worry about.

    “You’re mine, and I’m yours, right?” It was barely a whisper.
    That’s right, but… Something about that tone chilled him to the bone. “Mmhm.”
    “My perfect angel. My Sun.”
    That was new. The goosebumps were also new. And when did it get so cold in here? The tone was just chilling, and he couldn’t pinpoint exactly how. “Kookie?”
    “Hm?” He couldn’t move and felt like a rag doll as he was pulled into Jungkook’s lap.
    “I love you.” That always calmed him down. When he got…like this. In a state that made Jimin fear something was bubbling up to the surface. But he didn’t know why now. Nothing was agitating him.
    “I love you too. I don’t know what I’d do without you. I couldn’t handle it.”
    “Would… You wouldn’t ever hurt me, right?”

    Summary

    Dick never really understood the meaning of the phrase deal with the devil before, how anyone could get themselves wrapped up in something so obviously rigged against them.

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian mumbled into Lan Wangji's shirt, "We’re inviting horrible sadness and pain and they will come whether in a week or a year to end… whatever this is.”

    "I love the way you think." Lan Wangji smiled and kissed Wei Wuxian's head.

    (Or: sex friends AU where Wei Wuxian moves in with Lan Wangji after he accidentally sets his own apartment on fire. They’re just two housemates pretending not to have feelings for each other. Nothing to see here.)

    Summary

    Donghyuck knew he was lucky.

    Extremely lucky even. How many Hybrids could say they had been bought by a wealthy family, that had treated them with nothing but respect and showered them in love? Not many.

    He had been given the chance to push down boundaries and to challenge the system that abused Hybrids as lesser beings. There was no excuse for failure! He had no room to slack off when others like him suffered!

    So why could he not shake the demons that haunted him, why could he not forget and overcome this anxiety that made him wake up in a cold sweat and gasping for air?

    Why was he so weak when he didn‘t want to be?

    Summary

    "You feelin' comfy, buddy?"

    I can hear DJ's soothing, yet goofy voice from next to me.  I smirk, as I curl myself tighter into the ball I'm in.  

    "I'm fuckin' fried, dude."

    It hurts to talk a little because of how much talking I've done today, and also because of how raw my throat feels from the chronic purging, but I really want to try to cherish the time I have with these two before they're kicked outta here.

    I can hear a light laugh coming from DJ, as he pats my back.  "That's why you're here."  He smirks playfully.  "Everyone's gonna help ya, James.  You won't feel so fried from small things forever, I promise."

    Summary

    "I'm the only one that can give you want you really want." Harry spun Draco around and held his arms at his side and he pressed against his back, whispering against his throat. "That can force you, that can humiliate you… that can hurt you, and you want it. You want me."

    Harry is having a bad day. Draco just cannot learn to keep his mouth shut. Neither of them would have predicted it would lead to this.

    This was supposed to be a filthy dirty one shot pwp, but actually seems to have developed a plot all on its own. It is kind of one of those super powerful Harry stories, and I do so love tormenting Draco.
    It does end up going a bit dark/twisted, but Harry is still on the 'good' side. My Harry is sometimes violent, frequently unstable, but never evil.

    This story is a repost of a deleted story and is already complete - I'm editing / fixing up it up and will post chapters as they are edited.

    This story is like my Harry Potter guilty pleasure :D
