  2. Summary

    A series of mostly unrelated YGO fic written using a 100 prompt table from LJ. (Some of these have spawned their own series and are linked.) In the case of multichapter fics, I may use more than one prompt for that story, so the final story count may not add up to 100.

    There will be AUs, canon-compliant, head-canon, humor, angst, Puzzleshipping (because it's me), gen, fluff, etc. But there will also be some things you might not expect to see in my stories, because I want to use this to explore different takes on characters and canon, including characters I don't usually focus on (like Seto and Joey).

  4. Summary

    A collection of ficlets and drabbles taking place after the last televised episode of the anime series. Departs from canon with "...Whom the King Loves" by exploring a romantic relationship between Yami and Yugi. This story also explains why Yami has his own body separate from Yugi, and why the Pharaoh did not go on to the afterlife after the final duel. Mostly slice-of-life and established relationship.

    Every story in this series, even the ones categorized as "gen", presumes that Yami and Yugi are a couple (Puzzleshipping). Stories are posted in the order written rather than chronologically. Ignores the movies because I've only seen "Pyramid of Light".

    My sillier post-canon stories are collected under a separate series title (Epilogue: Crackfic Division).

    Summary

    Jango Fett marries Shmi Skywalker and decides he’d like his step-son back from the Jedi, thanks very much. Obi-Wan Kenobi would much prefer if the notorious bounty hunter could stop stalking his Padawan. Maleena Wendin, of Coruscant’s Children and Family Support Services, just wants this whole mess off her desk.

    (Could Mr. Fett please clarify what he means by “the Jedi taking a nine-year-old into an active warzone”? No reasonable adult would – oh. Oh no.)

    Summary

    A Prime is never late, nor is he early. He arrives precisely when he means to… give or take that one small paracausal nudge.

    Or, that time the Matrix got impatient and stole a truck... And thus set in motion the aversion of a 4-million-year war.

    For those who prefer to know in clear terms what a fic is peddling:
    ✔️ Optimus Prime being iconically wholesome
    ✔️ Cybertron being an exotic mechanical wonderland
    ✔️ Political, theological, social, scientific, medical, economic, industrial, environmental, legal, ethical, geometric, culinary, artistic, athletic, educational, cosmetic, and electromagnetic intrigue
    ✔️ Not so much a slow burn as a long fuse
    ❌ Civil war

    Summary

    Inspired by (unsurprisingly) "Where Our Intrepid Hero Doesn't Get Away" but not a direct sequel to any of the story's chapters.

    Vir'tarukh is on her first mission for Ary'ush. The young Noghri aims to not only complete the main objective but perform beyond expectations. She just may succeed.
    But, not in the way she ever would have imagined.

    Vir'tarukh and the title of 'Har'ay'ush' belong to sparklight. She was just very generous in allowing me to use both for this little story. I promise to pay for any Therapy Sessions Vir'tarukh will need after this. xD She will be dealing with Skywalkers after all.

    Summary

    There was a time, once, when the goblins were more than gibbering, mindless creatures, and the Goblin King more than a flouncing dilettante.

    A well-written gen fic focusing on Jareth. A rare find in this fandom.

    Summary

    Someone asked me how Bruce Wayne's company is structured and I went a little overboard, so now I'm archiving it Because Reasons. Feel free to use this for your own fics if you are also writing a universe where the Wayne family turned spite and pettiness into a billion-dollar empire.

    If I ever write another Batman fic I'm working something from this into it. Somehow. Other DC fic writers should use this because I want to read All The Fic about Bruce's wacky companies now.
