    Summary

    There have been many lies in Asami Sato's life. Some she lived, and others fed to her. But, since you can't stop progress anymore than you can stop the world from spinning, unraveling the truth, about herself and everything around her, always takes a back seat to the current crisis. Of course, the strongest and most debilitating lie of all is the one she forces upon herself.

    Since, to focus on herself would be unforgivable. Selfish. Arrogant. If so many are suffering, how can she allow herself to grieve? To put her own well-being first? To be happy? She can't. Not yet. But maybe, once all of this is over...

    Maybe.

    And yet, no matter how hard she fights, or how clever she is, she can never turn that "maybe" into "now".

    This is the story of how Asami Sato went beyond the impossible, time and time again.

    From her lowest point to her greatest triumph. Drowning in denial and grief to shattering the laws of reality to find happiness.

    How she turned "maybe" into "forever".

    Loosely inspired by the American folk tale of "John Henry the Steel Driving Man"

    Summary

    1983 - Reagan, Michael Jackson moonwalks for the first time, the internet is starting to take off, and arcades are at the peak of their popularity.

    Jackson, Wyoming. Ellie's got a past, and she's trying to see a future. Dina wants freedom, from herself and society. Abby can't let go of her demons. Jesse wants to grow out his mullet.

    Or, the one where they all struggle to avoid the boxes that the world wants to keep them in.

    TLDR; 1980's AU with all the good stuff you come here for.

    Summary

    AU: Joel lives because Abby & co. never came to Jackson.

    A series of oneshots about Joel repairing his relationship with Ellie and being a supportive dad/grandpa and moments of Ellie/Dina fluff. All in all, a lot of family bonding.

    Doesn't really matter if read out of order, except for a couple characters who show up, i.e. Shoshana (Dina's mom) and Esther (Joel's love interest)
