  1. Summary

    (Ignis fatuus - Medieval Latin for “foolish fire.” Also another name for will-o-the-wisps, which are also sometimes referred to as “fairy fires” or “ghost lights.”)

    Aurum est potestas – gold is power. For centuries, the Fowl family has followed this three-word motto to the letter, through everything from legal business ventures to the shady dealings of the criminal underworld. Not a single generation of Fowls has gone without acquiring gold for the family vaults, and of all the Fowls to grace the gilded family tree, Artemis Fowl the Second is perhaps the most dedicated to upholding this creed.

    However, despite his skill, Artemis is still but a child, and one day, months after his father disappeared in Russia, he makes a mistake. Mafia bosses do not take kindly to being robbed blind by a child, especially if said child is a Fowl. Fortunately for Artemis, his determined refusal to die in the face of a Mafia assassin saves his life and awakens his Dying Will.

    And now that he has a new supernatural power at his fingertips and a whole new world to explore and, best of all, exploit… well, never let it be said that Artemis Fowl doesn’t know how to take advantage of new opportunities.

  2. Summary

    Run after run, timeline after timeline, the same constants are firmly fixed in place. Frisk wakes up on a bed of flowers, they and Chara travel through the Underground and help break the Barrier. Once on the surface, it's a race against time to try to get the monsters the freedom they deserve before the next Reset rewinds time around them and starts the whole thing over again. Hundreds of timelines, THOUSANDS of timelines of this repeating cycle, and Frisk is beginning to lose hope that the monsters will ever get their real happy ending.

    Then one day, Frisk tries something new. They reply to an anonymous email sent by one of monsterkind's online supporters that offers them aid and a plan of action to finally get the monsters out from underneath the mountain. They don't expect much to happen. After all, how much can one person change?

    As it turns out, quite a lot - if that person is Artemis Fowl.

  3. Summary

    In a world where Stan never let go of Ford's hand, and the Zodiac's purpose of defeating Bill was achieved, the ten humans who stood on that circle become something a little more - or a little less - than human.

    (Inspired by the Transcendence AU)

    Summary

    Now, see, Fury is a pretty reasonable guy. He puts up with Tony Stark without killing him, yeah? That has to count for something. Especially when taken into consideration that he's Director of a spy--sorry, intelligence--agency. But even he has to resist the urge to pull out his nonexistent hair when there's HYDRA, and the fact that a good third of his agents' loyalties are mostly towards their mysterious cousin...who tipped them off to the snake infestation in the first place.

    Fury is a pretty reasonable guy. He just wants to know if this cousin is another fucking alien, and then he'll figure it out from there.

    (He isn't, as it turns out, but he does open up a whole new bag of cats. Insert a long-suffering sigh.)

    Summary

    Frisk, absolutely desensitized to any sense of danger after their experiences in the Underground, finds themselves in an inky situation. Determined to repeat their previous success in making friends and freeing innocent souls, Frisk makes a few leaps in logic that, while not correct, certainly improve the situation at this eerie studio.

    Summary

    Sirius Black grabs his godson and flees to Italy after Godric's Hollow. Landing in the middle of organized crime, curses, and malevolent ghosts was most definitely not part of the plan, but there might be a few perks.
