  1. Summary

    While being pursued by a monster the likes of which they’ve never seen, Geralt, Ciri, and Jaskier attempt to escape into another universe. When the portal collapses with Jaskier still in it, he’s thrown off course and someplace that looks similar to home, but is just a little to the left of normal. Now, Geralt and Ciri must travel the multiverse to find him, before the monster catches up to them and devours them all.

  3. Summary

    Yennefer was able to save Jaskier's life after the djinn and Geralt's unintentional wish, but at the cost of his voice. Now the man whose identity was built on his singing, wordplay, and verbal charm has to figure out how to exist in the world without those things. Thankfully, navigating that is easier when you have people who love you trying to help you manage it.

    Summary

    Claire shows up at the bunker a day before Dean was planning to leave, with her hair cut short and a fresh tattoo on her left arm under a bandage.

    ---

    Chuck is dead, Jack has given up his godlike powers, and Cas is back from the Empty, which doesn't make it any easier for Dean to talk to him. Suddenly finding himself in a world without monsters, supernatural forces, or any need for hunters, Dean's solution is to go on a road trip. Claire tags along.

    Dean figures himself out after everything. Maybe Claire helps. Maybe he helps her too.

    Summary

    A 14.13 Lebanon rewrite. When Dean uses a wish-granting pearl to try and kill the archangel Michael before he can escape the cage in Dean's head, they instead wind up with a newly-resurrected John Winchester.

    It's been more than a decade since John died, and a lot has changed: Mary is alive, Sam and Dean have what passes for a proper home in the Men of Letters Bunker, and they're living with angels. John doesn't know angels are real, he doesn't know about the fragile new relationship between Dean and Castiel, and most of all, he doesn't know that Dean said yes to Michael, or that Dean's plan to defeat Michael would send him to a fate worse than death.

    Now Dean must contend with both his father asking questions he can't answer, and his loved ones learning about the darker truths of his childhood, all while constantly battling the archangel trapped inside him. But Dean coming to terms with his history may be the difference between this being the beginning of a journey—or the end.

    Summary

    When Petunia Dursley refused to take Harry in she forfeited his birthright protection, so Dumbledore took the baby to the safest place he knew: Hogwarts.

    The applicable staff (mostly just… not Snape) took Harry in on a rotating schedule as he grew from baby to toddler to child. They traded extra credit for babysitting among the older students, and Harry grew up knowing a few dozen different laps that were safe and warm to nap in.

    This was a Harry who grew up among books, among old transient walls and learned professors. They gave Binns night duty sometimes, and let him talk young Harry to sleep. This was a Harry whose world changed, on principle, daily. The stairs moved. The walls became doors. You had to keep your eyes open–you had to pay attention. So he did.

    He grew up in a school. Knowledge was power, but knowledge was also joy. This was his sanctuary. There was magic in his world from birth.

    Dean's in love with Cas. Dean does not *realize* he's in love with Cas. Dean is an idiot but honestly who can blame him at this point?
