  1. Summary

    While I'm still new to actually writing fanfiction, a while back I ran across a fic tagged Evil Author Day. Upon some digging, I learned that it's basically a tradition of posting snippets from unfinished works every year on or around February 15th. There is no guarantee that the snippets will ever turn into published works, but it's still a fun chance for authors to show off.

    Each chapter is a different snippet, which comes from one of a variety of fandoms I've been experimenting with writing in.

    I've tried to indicate in the notes some idea of where the snippets fit into larger works. As these snippets end up published in finished works, I'll indicate as appropriate.

  2. Summary

    What happens when Obadiah Stane is a bit more strategic in his betrayal of his protege, setting Tony Stark on the path towards a very different future than the one that he thought that he would have? And how will these changes in Tony's fate snowball outwards into SHIELD and the Avengers, the Earth, and eventually the entire Universe?

  4. Summary

    This series started from a simple idea that has become a popular theme since the release of the new Fantastic Beasts film.
    Specifically, what if the Dursleys' abuse (which everyone agrees is canon, at least to some extent) led to Harry becoming an Obscurial. Given that jumping off point, I decided to explore the consequences of this notion. In this case, things kick off well before Harry reaches Hogwarts age with the emergence of the Obscurus in Part 1.

    Part 1: Unexpected Consequences is complete. It covers Harry and Sirius' initial reunion in 1985.

    Part 2: A Tale of Two Letters is complete. It takes place six year later, in the summer of 1991, and covers the Hogwarts invitations and the realizations that come in the aftermath of those letters' delivery.

    Part 3: Irregular Homecomings is complete. It takes place starting in the summer of 1994, and is the events of Goblet of Fire in this universe.

    Part 4: Appendices are reference notes for the series. Each chapter is independent, and chapters are posting periodically.

    Summary

    Harry finds a better life with the basilisk, but that doesn't mean it's easy. From inter-being feuds, to bloody prophecies, to elven unrest, Harry is in the eye of a hurricane that will change the wizarding world forever.

    Involving thestrals, merfolk, house elves, centaurs, acromantulae, and various other friends, denizens, and allies.

    This series is: Queer in a multitude of ways. Morally complex. A massively canon-divergent AU. Filled with oc's and non-oc's. A story about relationships, love, trust, friendship, healing ... and revolution.

    There are seven novel-length fics, plus a prologue (to leap and love the fall) and two short stories (with courage unyielding and the gentle sunlight). All are posted in the correct reading order.

    Summary

    From a Hobbitkink prompt:

    The battle was over, and Thorin Oakenshield awoke, naked and shivering, in the Halls of his Ancestors.

    The novelty of being dead fades quickly, and watching over his companions soon fills him with grief and guilt. Oddly, a faint flicker of hope arises in the form of his youngest kinsman, a Dwarf of Durin's line with bright red hair.

    (Follows the story of the War of the Ring).

     

    (Bagginshield, Gimli/Legolas) In which recovery takes time, the dead members of the Company take to watching Gimli as though he’s a soap opera, the living struggle with being left behind, Legolas is confused, Khuzdul is abused, and Thorin is four feet and ten inches of guilt and anger.
