  1. Summary

    Solf J. Kimblee returns the philosopher's stone like a dutiful soldier, gets ptsd post war, gets sent East on a mission to recruit some Elric brothers, and then, on top of all of this TERRIBLE time he's having without a philosopher's stone - the homunculi tell him he has to make sure the human sacrifices (ie. the Elrics) don't die. That'd be all well and good, but the Elric brothers are death-seekers.

    Also, Maes Hughes is his friend. Because Maes Hughes is the type of person who'd look at Kimblee and say: sometimes, once in a blue moon, he can be friend shaped. Good enough for me.

  3. Summary

    Hi! You ever feel robbed that Harry Potter's characters are much too caricaturized and that the divide between good and evil is way too clean for your liking? Did you think to yourself, wow, Voldemort & the Purebloods & the World Building are really much too simple and definitely not explored enough for my liking? You ever wanted to read a story where 'bad' and 'evil' characters are humanized without having their actions excused?

    You're in luck! This is what Retired Prometheus is. A fic that details how Voldemort's life is a shitshow and that he’s fucked up on an astronomical level. Want to get deep into the world of pureblood toxicity and how their culture and way of thinking has influenced the air of magical society?

    But how about we go DEEPER and have it be a canon divergence where Voldemort doesn't resurface in 1991 because he's in hiding, trying to piece together his mental health, pretending that he's dead because he realises, that, oh golly, oh jeez, living through the great depression, ww2, & the wizarding war is enough trauma...that he might want to be a teacher for a bit - but oh shit!

    Hermione Granger winds up being his student & finds out he's Voldemort

    Summary

    Tom Riddle was perfectly content to avoid England and its blood purity. Until rumours came of a new Dark Lord. Abraxas Malfoy, they said, The One-That-Must-Not-Be-Named.

    That, he thought, was well worth coming back.

    Or was it?

    Summary

    “So how do you know?”

    “I just do.” Avery shrugs. “It’s like…”

    He doesn’t finish the sentence, and the conversation feels awkward. It occurs to Riddle that this might make Avery walk away, along with all future alliances.

    “Like if you know that you’re born to rule the world, but everyone looks at you and just sees a sixteen-year-old orphan?” he tries.

    Avery gives Riddle a strange look. “No, not at all like that, because you are a sixteen-year-old orphan and that’s not going to stop you from ruling the world someday. This—” he gestures at himself. “This isn’t something that’s going to just change through hard work.”
