  1. Summary

    With the Greeks, resurrection is left to the kids, where the gods can turn a blind eye, or they when involve the dearly departed becoming gods, however minor, themselves.

    The Egyptian Gods are a whole other mess for that matter, barging into whole other pantheons (they’re very good at making friends), and avoiding the whole matter of death entirely. (Most of the time, at least)

    However, the Norse prefer to be slightly more involved in post mortem affairs, especially when there’s a possibility for a bit of friendly Duels-to-the-Death (Now on Tuesdays!).

    Summary

    Geralt's muscles heave backwards, flinging him down against the bed. He tries to struggle upwards but it feels like he’s been buried beneath a mountain. Every inch of him is pressed completely still. His eyes close, and he’s left in the dark with nothing but his racing heart for company. He’s not tired, he’s never been less tired. But the curse wants him to sleep, it seems. It’ll force him to lie here until he does. How much of his life will it start to control, now that he’s declared war against it? Now that he knows it’s lurking in his bones, now that it doesn’t have to be subtle?

    He swallows. Takes a long, deep breath, gathering every bit of courage he has to stop himself from slipping back into panic. He still has control over his lungs. He still has that.

    For now.

    (Or: Witchers don't retire. They stay on the Path until it kills them. They hunt monsters and they want nothing from life. This isn't exactly by choice.)

    Summary

    (And Zuko wants to laugh, he does, because he’s twenty-one, and he's the guardian of a five-year-old sister he didn’t even know existed until his mother died in a car crash, and he's legally responsible for his nineteen-year-old sister who’s been admitted for almost a year of her short life, and rent is due, and his temp job doesn’t pay nearly enough, and he wishes he had someone to help, but he has no clue where Uncle is, and no other adult has ever cared enough to help, and he’s tired. 

    He’s just so, so, tired.)

    Summary

    When a villain attack happens at Kiyashi Ward Shopping Mall, a green haired teenager takes a hit from multiple haywire quirks at once. The results are... unexpected, to say the least. After all, who could guess the overlapping quirks would summon seven strangers out of nowhere? All with the same quirk(s???) as the kid to boot!

    Not anyone in the crowd, that's for certain.

    Subliminal @sleeprocks -

    Green kid just noticed the strangers and they're having a staredown.

    Summary

    '#RIPallmight' was trending. This wasn't unusual for celebrities, which limelight heroes certainly were, but this one was odd - namely because it cropped up just seconds after a live interview with the man himself abruptly ended when he rushed off the stage with a hurried "my son is sick and needs me" thrown over his shoulder.

    The first instance of the tag came from the account @greenvalleymom, whose only other tweets included a killer katsudon recipe and knitting projects.
