  1. Summary

    In which I have no intention of sticking to three sentences and go absolutely hog-wild on prompts after a LONG dry spell.

  2. Summary

    The idea for this series struck after reading a ficbit Ceryskitty wrote on tumblr and wondering, 'could I just scoop Prowl up and get him out of IDW now, please? Seriously, comics, he's had enough.' So - the first story here could be set in the original G1 cartoon or in IDW G1 comics'verse, whichever you prefer, but the second and third instalments are very firmly set in IDW and veer off sharply from canon after That Thing With Devastator.

    This series is all about reclaiming your body, healing and comfort, though please note that Prowl is in a very dreamy headspace for the second fic and could be interpreted very differently to how Prowl sees things - it's porn-o-vision, essentially, and while the author is aiming for hurt-comfort Prowl makes some guesses about how things work that aren't as clear-cut as they might appear. Third fic should clear that riiight up, though. I don't do bad endings and there will be none of those shenanigans in this 'verse.

  3. Summary

    This is the story, or rather the collection of stories, of what happens when one small change alters the flow of history. Orion, the dock worker who becomes a Prime; Megatron, the revolutionary who writes poetry when he's not overturning corrupt regimes; Prowl, the psychopomp of Praxus who gets just a little too involved in a certain mech's life; and Nightlight, the white-sheep outcast from the Highest Family of Vos, who just wants to raise his sparkling in peace.

  4. Summary

    Prowl is a psychopomp. Jazz is a skeptic. Somehow it works.

    Summary

    In a dank cave in the Blue Mountains, a stripling just barely past the cusp of manhood looks up at a cyclops looming over him and raises his arm in a futile effort to ward off the massive hand as it swings towards him.

    On the banks of a river, hundreds of miles and precisely five decades later, to the day and the hour and the ticking second, a man raises his hand to deflect the arrow hissing towards him and knows he’s going to be too slow.

    Both of them have the exact same thought as their deaths approach:

     

    Lambert is never going to forgive me.

    Summary

    It wasn’t bone. It was too smooth. It caught the light like something greased.

    “A curse,” Lan Wangji breathed, because it could only be such.

     

    The Twin Jades of Lan get turned to jade.

    Summary

    Wangji shuts his eyes and rocks A-Yuan and thinks about Wei Ying, Wei Ying. The sound of his laugh; the rage in his eyes at any cruelty, no matter how small. Water running down his face, mixed with tears and mud in the rain. The smell of his sweat and his combing-oil when he stood too close in the cold spring. His face when he’d said, I’ll carry you, too many years ago. If there is anything left of him, Wangji will still love it. It’s not even a question.

    When he opens his eyes all the candles in the room sputter at once, and go out.

    And then they come back again, as easily as they were extinguished. Wangji looks up, to find a tall shadow in the doorway.

    Wangji is not afraid.

    “Wei Ying,” he says. “Come in.”

    Summary

    It is unexpectedly easy; he does not even need to lie outright, just let them follow his gaze to where Wen Zhuliu's body sprawls on the floor. “They caught me in Yiling,” he says, and holds out one hand to each of them.

    Wei Wuxian tells the truth, sort of. AU diverging when Jiang Cheng and Lan Wangji find Wei Wuxian in episode 20.
