  2. Summary

    Notes: Post 'Freak Nation.' This is a series of stories to fill my claim for 15_song_titles. Each one can be read as a short stand alone story, or all together for one longer story arc that ultimately makes up my answer to candycentric's request (see series notes).

  3. Summary

    This is an Alternate Reality Series called Parallel Lives, based on the prompts from the Drabble Thread at Polar Attraction, to help fulfill my mission_insane claim. These stories are all inter-related, not chronologically, but because they all take place in the alternate reality, which will be revealed as the stories go on. In some stories, the difference won't be evident, because somethings remain the same (most of Season 1, in fact). Things really begin to diverge right before the second season. So, Michael, Max, Isabel and Tess are aliens. Liz (and Kyle) were shot and then healed by Max. Michael works at the Crashdown. The rest will be revealed as the stories go on.

    Summary

    Debby did Dallas, but Darcy does Tony, Clint, Steve and Thor. Individually, and in that order.

    And then she does them again.

     

    Darcy just.... does.

    Summary

    Lily will not stand for her prodigal son's refusal to fulfill his newfound duties, and demands that action be taken to remedy this. The response she receives instead sends her reeling.


    Fair warning: This is Wrong-Boy-Who-Lived!Lily, whose fame has utterly gone to her head. Her personality may be argued to have very little to do with her canon self.

    Events of the backstory have also altered Petunia's personality. If you're expecting the harridan from canon, you will be disappointed. Part of the point of this fic is the changes in the personalities of the Evans sisters. Pointing out that they are highly "out-of-character" by canon standards is about as relevant as pointing out that Harry doesn't actually have a twin brother.

    Summary

    Harry has reached a very bitter and jaded thirty. His efforts to reform the Ministry haven’t lessened the corruption or pure-blood bigotry one bit. That’s when he finds out that he’s apparently a part of a pure-blood nobility he’s never heard of before; he’s Lord Potter and Lord Black. Unfortunately, that revelation’s come too late for him to be a reformer. All Harry wants to do is tear the system down and salt the earth. And with a double Lordship, he just might have the power to do that.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I really love this story, even if I think I would have trouble articulating exactly why, so please bear with me. While a very straight forward plot, it addresses some of the biggest flaws of J.K.’s world in the manner of allegory and exaggeration as Jonathan Swift did, while pulling you along on an adventure. It also addresses the very real ideas of underlying and ingrained prejudices, even in people who we don’t realize have them, including ourselves. Even Harry realizes that he is ultimately selfish and prejudiced in his own ways, and I like that. At the same time, it is a charming, engrossing and original story. I loved it.

    Summary

    Revenge is the misguided attempt to transform shame and pain into pride. Being forsaken and neglected, ignored and forgotten, revenge seems a fairly competent obligation at this point.
    Skylar is the boy who lived, that's why he's important. I'm not Skylar.
    Going to Hogwarts is part of the plan, waking the basilisk is part of the plan, taking potions, learning spells, being tortured, murdering others, watching people di-

     

    I’m going to tell you a story, although it’s a bit long. I’m going to make you listen, because I want you to understand how you made me a monster. I’ll call this story antithesis, and you’re going to learn every single moment where things went wrong. I want you to cry, and beg for me to kill you, and when I’m done with this, you’re going to want to do that to yourself. You’re going to listen, because in the end, you owe me that much. You owe me so much more, but here we are, and this is how it’s going to end. Who knows, maybe this useless battle between you and me and this bloody world, well, maybe we always were fated to kill each other.

    Do you know what it is like to be unmade?
