    Summary

    . . .

    Siren hadn’t uttered a word since he’d unmasked Tommy, but Tommy could hear his breathing: startled and rattled through his mask, almost in horror. That wasn’t good. Tommy would be more reassured by the predictable: teasing, forcing vulnerability, questions about who he was and what he wanted. The silence was worse.

    "Unpredictability is dangerous," Dream had warned him. "It means the best and the worst can happen at any time, any place, any circumstances."

    It meant Siren could return Tommy’s mask and let him go, or slit his throat.

    . . .

    To most heroes in the Nox superhero organization, catching the Syndicate's eye is a death sentence. Dream and Tommy are the city's top heroes, bent on taking down the mysterious family running the city's criminal operations. When Tommy's first solo mission ends in sabotaging Siren, one of the Syndicate’s leaders, it's all over the news.

    A few startling discoveries, however, send Tommy's life spiraling. Stripped of his status as a hero and branded a traitor, abandoned by Dream and the hero organization he's given up everything for, what does Tommy have left to do?

    Become a fucking vigilante, of course. Syndicate be damned.

    Summary

    It was a cruel twist of fate really, well maybe not fate exactly but cruel nonetheless.

    Or for an unforeseen, impossible twist of fate Wilbur ends up in the DSMP Universe, and has to find a way to get back to our universe while trying to survive, protect c!Tommy and maybe stop his character from incurring in the ending he wrote for him.

    Summary

    “You have to use your power at some point, Wil,” Tommy said, wiping off his hands on his sweatpants and taking a seat at the table with him. The uncomfortably shaped plastic of the foldable chair dug into his spine as he leaned back.

    Wilbur didn’t look up from the paperwork. “I have the stabilizer now. I’m fine, Toms.”

    Tommy sighed loudly, but his brother stubbornly refused to acknowledge him. He poked Wilbur’s forehead to get his attention.

    That made him look up. “What?”

    “You have to use your power eventually,” Tommy repeated. “Better sooner than later.”

    Wilbur put down the pen and put his elbows on the table, fingers fiddling with the edges of his sweater. “It’s not that simple.”

    “Then make it simple.”

    Or: Wilbur doesn’t want to use his power despite the risk of his condition worsening, and Tommy has to come up with a way to make him. Part two of ndaod in which Wilbur is emotionally constipated, Tommy is patient, and the past is revealed in all its ugly glory.

    Most people, when almost drowned by the song of a siren, wouldn't use this as an opportunity to make a new friend.

    Wilbur Soot is not most people.
