    Summary

    All the hair on the back of Lan Wangji’s neck stands straight. He finds himself pressed between the trunk of the tree at his front, and Wei Wuxian at his back. Wei Wuxian has a firm grip on the wrist which carries Bichen, and on his left upper arm. It feels...proprietary. Suddenly, and entirely inappropriately, a very old, very shameful memory surfaces, of a long-ago dream from which he had woken sweaty and shaking. The place on his chest where the resentment pierced him begins to throb painfully. Wei Wuxian breathes heavily against his ear for half a moment longer, and Lan Wangji feels himself flush.

    Or; reuniting with Wei Wuxian after their year apart is complicated by a mysterious and deadly curse.

    Summary

    Lan Wangji looks down at his own hands, steadying himself. It is easier to think clearly when he is not looking into Wei Wuxian’s eyes. He takes the scroll from his pouch.

    “Research has uncovered a method,” he says. He does not mention the forbidden hours and nature of said research, nor does he elaborate on the method itself. He will not venture to speak it aloud. He hands the scroll over.

    Wei Wuxian looks at him for a long moment as he takes it, and Lan Wangji holds his breath, waiting for him to decide. Waiting to see if he is at least interested enough in the possibility of a new core to read it.

    He is. He does. Lan Wangji might be relieved, if not for what comes next.

     

    Lan Wangji offers to help Wei Wuxian develop a new golden core via dual cultivation. He struggles to keep his feelings in check.

    Summary

    After Horde Prime is defeated, there's still much left to be resolved. What to do with all his abandoned clones? What punishment does Hordak deserve for his role in Etheria's suffering? How to restore the Fright Zone to Scorpia's family and what to do with all the indoctrinated soldiers still living there? What to do about the possibility of more magic-based worlds that were converted to weapons by the First Ones - or the possibility that Horde Prime was smart enough to make a backup of his consciousness? And the most important question of all - will Catra and Adora ever be allowed some alone time to explore their newly admitted love for one another?

    COMPLETE as of 2020-09-10: Written as a sort of "Season Six", this story covers the post-war fallout, a long space adventure to find and destroy Prime's backup consciousness, a slow-burn exploration of what a Hordak redemption arc might look like, and lots and lots of Catra/Adora character study, hurt/comfort, fluff, and occasionally smut. There are some violent action scenes, but no character death.

    Summary

    Adora notices when Catra’s body changes, okay? She just knows better than to think about it too hard, than to do anything about it. That does not mean she wants anyone else to think about it, either.
    Catra knows she chose the absolute worst person to fall in love with, but she did not get very much of a choice either. She just has to watch Adora be her oblivious, golden self and pine for the first thing she could never have.
    (AKA a story about jealous and yearning teenagers).

    Summary

    In the Horde, Catra learned quickly that she was different. Not in the way that Adora was different, not in a special way, but more of in a “control your animal instincts and aberrations” way. She spent years building careful control over herself, her purr, her tail and her claws. Then she arrives in Bright Moon and suddenly being different is not so dangerous anymore.
    (AKA Catra learning to let go and let her cat tendencies show).
