    Summary

    His best friend's grief very nearly did result in John Morris setting out alone.

    (Underage warning is ticked there because it's not just implied, it's directly referenced. I can't seem to stop writing various iterations on "Gwen dies, then dies for real, Eric falls to pieces, John has many emotions about this", and it keeps hitting me how damn young Morris & Lecarde really were in 1917. Parenthetical is the working title, it's in Spanish because I'm just that pretentious.)

    Summary

    John Morris, unlike his father, was an obsessive diarist.
    Jonathan Morris, unlike his father, didn't really want to read his father's notebooks until he was nineteen.
    Charlotte Aulin, somewhat like a distant ancestress, is (still) stuck dealing with an heroic idiot who doesn't know how to process his own grief.

    (Or: it's 1945 and you killed Dracula last year, do you know where your heart is at? Or: this is the closest thing I've written to curtainfic in a very long time; starts off gloomy but gets less so I swear.)

    PLEASE HEED THE TAGS. I know there's a few of you out there who do follow my work who are also MASSIVELY SQUICKED by arbitrary trans AUs. This is one, and consider this your warning.

    Summary

    Dear mid-90s Konami, you can’t just mention a character finally decided he’d be a vampire hunter because his lover got turned and then not use her as a boss at some point like that, what the heck.

    Or: Several hours' drive from Pisa, Italy, Eric Lecarde's past catches up to him... and she's not happy.

    (Working title of "why don't we do it in the road" finally replaced with a final one on 5/19/18.)

    Summary

    Sometimes pretending you're someone else makes it easy to get off. Sometimes - especially after traumatizing experiences - even that doesn't work. Soma "Eternally Awful Luck" Cruz is about to learn this the hard way.

    Summary

    Post-game. The former Balamb Garden Disciplinary Committee is on a train, starting to realize they've got the whole world ahead of them. Fujin's got some unfinished business to attend to, though.

    (Inspired by and titled after the song by The Hiders. Disciplinary Polycule is hinted at but not the focus, so no ship tag. Rated as it is because... well, this is a quick little thing that grew out of some really dark speculation involving how much control B-Garden's ward-students had of their own bodies.)
