  1. 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?

  3. 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

    In the original universe, Peter Parker met the symbiont who would become known as Venom after he had possessed others, after his mind had been corrupted by inappropriate hosts and his true purpose lost to insanity and insatiable hunger. If Peter had met the symbiont while it was still intact, its mind clear and its purpose undecided, would he have so easily rejected the symbiont?

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Utterly different take on the Klyntar from the Venom comics, set in the MCU in the time post the first Spider-Man movie and before Infinity War. Featuring a well-meaning dad Tony and mom figure May, along with a precious cinnamon roll Peter and besties Ned and MJ.

    Summary

    The Hidden Leaf Village in Naruto's time seems to have forgotten just why the village was founded and have lost their way. Through a mishap with a hiraishin seal, Tobirama finds himself during Naruto's time and he is having none of this nonsense. His brother may be gone, but he won't stand to have Hashirama's dream trampled so.

    And if he has to cause a civil war or burn the village down to the ground? Well that depends on how much resistance he meets.

    All Tobirama does know for certain is that no child will suffer underneath the protection of Konoha and if he has to take them in and care for them himself, then he will.

    **here's to hoping updating existing chapters doesn't send out update alerts/emails. I'm doing some sporadic editing of this fic. Just some grammar, punctuation, and small facts. Sorry if I confuse anyone.**

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Fun fix-it fic where Tobirama Senju travels to the future instead of dying like he does in canon and ends up adopting a chibi Naruto as his cub and heir early, years before the main canon begins.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Rather lovely star wars au circa the clone wars and beyond that features a non-human (winged) female obi-wan who is a very different being due to her heritage and how this difference changes some of the events of the fall of the republic in interesting ways.

    Summary

    What if Tony decided in Siberia that he couldn't just go home? He was used to being the scapegoat, but this time the cost would be more than he could pay.

    Ross would have the ammunition he needed to get Iron Man under his control, and what he'd do with the tech didn't bear thinking about.

    Tony decided to use Protocol Pass The Torch. He'd be fine. A penniless fugitive's life would make a nice change of pace. Everything would be peachy keen.

    (Tony miscalculated the pull the world had on him. He also miscalculated how many people would join him. Ultimately, Thanos underestimated him.)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    MCU AU starting from the end of Civil War up through Infinity War. Some character bashing, especially of Maximoff/Rogers/Romanoff, and very Team Iron Man.
    An excellent alternative version of the build-up to and take down of Thanos.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Rather splendid Tolkien AU which starts from Thorin reliving the quest and spirals out from there to encompass both The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings. There's even a redemption arc for Smeagol/Gollum. Note that there's only one explicitly romantic pairing and it's het, though there are a few more implied.
