    Summary

    "What d’you say? – if we get a chance, you and me’ll slip off and set up somewhere on our own with a few trusty lads, somewhere where there’s good loot nice and handy, and no big bosses."
    "Ah!" said Shagrat. "Like old times." - J. R. R. Tolkien, The Two Towers

    The War of the Ring is over, and a few surviving Orcs, after having escaped the carnage at Cormallen, have settled in a fortress in Rhûn and are trying to make it through the winter. Little do they know that winter is going to be the least of their troubles.

    Summary

    The thing about nightmares is that no matter how twisted and terrifying they become, you always wake up.

    The problem was he no longer held a clear demarcation between apocalyptic landscapes, fracturing memories, or suffocating boxes of obsidian. That for every moment he spent blinking awake, there was a moment he spent wondering which was the real him-- wondering in which of those little fever dreams did his 'fortunate' reality lie. Too often, he found himself staring into the lava curtain wondering if it was always just the same box with a different shape, a different sky. Too often he'd ask himself why it mattered.

    And maybe a year on the outside of Pandora's Vault isn't a long time, but inside of it? It's an eternity, and forever is just enough time for everything to go to shit.

    Dream is a god with a person complex, and getting locked in his own prison creates less of a solution and more of a problem.

    Summary

    Noun. Fear of seeing one’s own reflection.

     

    For a full minute, there was little sound save the whirring of machinery, and it took all of Phil’s willpower to stay still and keep looking unconcerned to the scientists around him. He was at the heart of the complex now. He couldn’t slip up. Finally, a large cylinder of metal and frosted glass at the back corner of the room split, the halves retreating into the floor and ceiling, and revealed its contents. Standing there, blinking owlishly at the lights, was a child.

    .-.-.
     
    The Angel of Death has discovered that someone has been systematically collecting his fallen feathers and spilt blood for years. The trail has finally led him outside a nondescript building at the outskirts of a city, an answer to why waiting inside...

    Summary

    There are some great quick guides to HTML on A03. This is not one of them - it is a comprehensive guide, dividing all of the available tags into the following categories:

    1. Text Formatting (in-line HTML)
    2. Page Formatting (block HTML)
    3. Tables and Lists
    4. Links and Images

    Each tag will have - at a minimum - a link to the w3schools page about it (so you can learn more), a code example, and the result of the code example.

    It will also introduce tag attributes, ways to further refine formatting, for a few simple - but widely applicable - cases.
