    Summary

    More than anything else, David wants to believe he's not sick because that means he isn't crazy. It means he can fall in love and live happily ever after. But if he surrenders to that hope and he's wrong, then there's no coming back.

    The Shadow King is victorious, but the battle for David Haller’s soul has only begun. David fails to escape Division 3's intervention and is forced into therapy. With his relationships ruined, his mind split, and his past a lie, death seems like the only choice left. But Farouk is pulling the strings to keep him alive. As David's friends and family work desperately to save him, David must reclaim his past and present to avoid losing his future to the monster who destroyed him.

    Summary

    “It’s a chess move, you see. Pawns must be strategically sacrificed in order to achieve the goal. I know that sounds harsh, but think about it. When the goal is so beautiful, what do those pawns matter?” He glanced eagerly over at Bruce, searching for approval.

    “They matter more than ever. You can’t just let people die to get what you want. You know that, Jeremiah.”

    His eyes darkened as he gazed out the window, disappointment clouding his pale face. The blueprint in his hand began to crumple as his grip around it tightened. He had been so sure, so very sure that his friend would realize how important this was. For Jeremiah, for the city…

    For them.

    His voice was soft when he spoke, but laden with disappointment.

    “I thought you would understand.”

    Summary

    Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that he shall also reap. -Galatians 6:7

    It has been four years since Aiden's death and the Battle of Kaer Morhen. Lambert is licking his wounds after a particularly shitty contract when he finds himself face-to-face with a certain merchant of mirrors. And he has a very interesting proposition...

    (This story is a direct sequel to my other large Lambert/Aiden work, Silver for Monsters. However, it can easily be read as a standalone fic. Updates every other week on Mondays.)

    Summary

    Byleth is here to change the future goddamnit, his new omega status be damned.

    Or:

    Byleth gets involuntarily thrown to the past by Sothis with a new body. A clearly omegan body which is strange since Byleth was pretty sure that he was an Alpha before all of this.

    Oh, and his father doesn't know him.

    Summary

    “What do you want from me?”

    The car’s fogging up and daylight is soon to creep over the horizon, but neither notices as Oikawa closes the space between them, indifferent to the silt and mud skimming the backseat leather, all to frame Iwaizumi’s face in his palms.

    Oikawa’s touch is deathly cold and hesitant and nothing resembling the man he’s gotten to know three months ago. It’s a shallow attempt at soothing him, thumbs grazing over wet cheekbones, and when Iwaizumi clasps the other’s elbow, the look he gets in return makes him question if he had ever really met Oikawa until today.


    Iwaizumi, jaded and haunted by past circumstances, returns to his childhood home after years. Something's amiss.

    Summary

    Graeme Amell has grown from a doomed pawn in the Circle to be the reluctant Hero of Ferelden, then took on the responsibility of rebuilding Vigil's Keep and leading the remaining Grey Wardens. And if talking darkspawn and conspiring nobles wouldn't be enough, he has to face treason among his own ranks. Amell becomes a runaway apostate, searching for purpose and a place for himself, and that is how he finds out about distant relatives of his living in Kirkwall. By travelling there, Amell finds more than family and a former lover thought to be dead. He finds a cause he can fight for.

    In short: A story of love, betrayal and revolution before and during the mage-templar war.

    Summary

    For some reason, Sayu had just assumed that she’d have more time.

    She couldn’t really say why.

    It was probably in the same vein as most things in childhood- time slips by and you can’t keep track of it.

    Hell, it had been so long since she’d given any thought to the future that she’d nearly forgotten. But she’d needed help with her homework, had gone to Light, only to find his door locked- and just like that, everything had come flooding back to her.

    Summary

    As far back as I can remember, I've dreamed of flying...

    The closest I could ever get was the Air Force... Until a rogue missile shot me down and literally shot a hole through my life. For all my trying, all I gained was a wheelchair and a healthy helping of scarring. Yay, go me.

    I still dream, though.

    Summary

    Matt Murdock has been missing for just over a year when he comes back out of seemingly nowhere, determined to make the most of his junior year of high school (despite having a shitton of issues that literally no one wants to touch with a ten-foot pole).

    His former best friend can't seem to reconcile him with the Matt he used to know, everyone's torn between treating like he's glass or like he's some sort of freak, and his supersenses in a building full of hormonal teenagers ensure that it's going to be far from an easy school year.

     

    Luckily for Matt, things start to look up with the arrival of a new student: rumored troublemaker and delinquent Frank Castle. School suddenly seems a lot more interesting.

    Summary

    trauma has a way of catching up to you, of leaving all your fault lines bare and tearing you open from the inside out

    recovery is slow and hard and sometimes you take more steps backward than forwards.

    sometimes you help others as much as you are helped, sometimes you're buried ankle deep in regret and fear.

    eventually, you reach the end.

    or; Dick Grayson and trauma, recovery, and his siblings. Something's wrong with all of them but they work through it, eventually.

    Summary

    When you die and get reborn as one of Marvel's most well-known villains, you don't follow their path.
    The new Ultron is probably not the best person for this job, but they at least know that much.

    First to go is the evil-AI name.

    Summary

    "Ever since York died in the accident, she had been pouring her heart into her work. Distraction could only do so much in that situation, and she was well aware of it, but at least for a little while she had to fill her brain with something that wasn’t her sense of guilt. Not that it was easy, she was the one at the wheel. Plus, it was right because of York that she had moved to another country: he would study ancient Japanese folklore and she would admire the beauty of the locations, working as a freelance photographer. They had moved with the idea of starting a new life, they had gotten engaged and perhaps they would have started making plans for a family, in fact they were happy to have bought a big house because one day they would have raised their children in there.
    …But that couldn’t be a reality anymore, so all Carolina could do was take another picture, and then another picture, and then another."
