    Summary

    It’s a legend told in countless songs, countless stories: of how the humans and the faeries warred, great and terrible as all wars are; of how greatest human knight slew both himself and the Faerie King with a rose of flame.

    And of how, on that night, a young hero lost himself to darkness.

    Swearing a terrible oath, he grew from a boy into a man in one night...

    It’s only a legend—but when the rebellious young nobleman Killua Zoldyck is sentenced to slay a savage giant, he soon discovers that this legend is more real—and more human—than he could ever have dreamed.

    Summary

    From a Hobbitkink prompt:

    The battle was over, and Thorin Oakenshield awoke, naked and shivering, in the Halls of his Ancestors.

    The novelty of being dead fades quickly, and watching over his companions soon fills him with grief and guilt. Oddly, a faint flicker of hope arises in the form of his youngest kinsman, a Dwarf of Durin's line with bright red hair.

    (Follows the story of the War of the Ring).

     

    (Bagginshield, Gimli/Legolas) In which recovery takes time, the dead members of the Company take to watching Gimli as though he’s a soap opera, the living struggle with being left behind, Legolas is confused, Khuzdul is abused, and Thorin is four feet and ten inches of guilt and anger.

    Summary

    The idea behind the whole system is pretty simple. You pay a dollar, answer some questions, and out pops a couple of names of people you’d be compatible with. Compatible as in, you know, dating-wise.

    Gon, though. Gon never really knew why he signed up. And neither did anyone else.

    It wasn’t like Gon was ever without friends. Just the opposite, in fact. Everyone liked Gon. He talked to people, made them open up in ways no one else could.

    So, it was as big a surprise to Gon as to anyone when the high school's matching system paired him with the one person he had never uttered a single word to during his past three years at Hunter High.

    (a fic in which social butterfly Gon Freecss is accidentally paired up with social outcast Killua Zoldyck through a matching personality test; as Gon is thrown head-first into Killua's world, he slowly becomes more and more drawn to Killua in ways he could have never expected)

    Summary

    Ros and Alba reflect on all of the scars the hero has gained during the year Ros was away.

    "Do they hurt?"

    Alba smiled knowingly, sadly. "No."

    Because there was only one that truly hurt, the invisible one that had been carved deep into his heart and soul—the scar that Alba received when his most important person left him behind. Even so, that one was finally starting to heal too.
