  1. 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

    The rumors spread throughout the Outer Rim. Never openly, never where just anyone could hear… but they spread. Secretly, slowly, they spread. And changes were coming. Slaver’s ships were disappearing, lost without a trace in the darkness of deep space. Without a trace, save for the slaves turning up unharmed and free all over the galaxy. Slaves were disappearing from planets, again turning up free and safe on other planets. Masters were dying, often in accidents, sometimes by murder.

    A rather simple little one shot in form, it is powerful in its simplicity, despite having almost no true dialog.

    Summary

    A woman’s honour is different than a man’s; men seek to cleanse their honour with blood, while any woman can tell you that it’s hard work that removes stains.

    A kunoichi’s heart is strong and enduring; it bruises where a shinobi’s breaks.
    Hatake Sakumo was a woman, not a man; her daughter Kakashi is the Silver Wolf, the legacy of the White Fang.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    A rather lovely alternate universe version of Naruto, in which the Hatake family (Sakumo and Kakashi) are female instead of male and many things are better in Konoha because of that one fact. Some tragedies are still unavoidable, so it's not completely fluff, but it's still a lovely version of Konoha set chronologically before the canon events.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Epic Buffy Alternate Universe centered around the pairing of Angel/Xander starting from the very beginning of the show. There is a mild crossover with the Sentinel that gradually becomes more significant especially in the third part.
    Some of the pairings become quite curious as the series progresses, including multi polyamorous relationships.

    Intriguing story about an android Coulson, which takes place mostly before or early on in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (aka pre-Avengers).

    Summary

    No species is all good or all evil. The tok'ra like to believe they are the "good" side of the onac race--the symbiotes who developed into the goa'uld. However, the tok'ra never mention Shamash or Samas, the ancient Sumerian god who was really one of the early queens. She (or really Samas prefers to be called a he) remembers the onac before the corruption of Ra, and he tried to lead his people back to a life in the water. He failed. However, thousands of years later, one gunnery sergeant on a suicide mission stumbled into a South American river, and Samas found he had another chance. The SGC and later Atlantis gave Samas a chance to save his people and make a few changes for the better in this universe. Samas once allowed Ra to take everything away from him. This time Samas is going to make sure his people are strong enough to stand up to any enemy. And to serve that end, he's going to make sure that those that he trusts--Tony, John, Rodney, Teyla, Ronon, Elizabeth, Major Teldy, Radek, Miko, Kyli and others--have the power to combat anyone who tries to take Atlantis from them.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Epic series that is a cross-over between Stargate and NCIS. It is mainly a Stargate story with the inclusion of a few NCIS characters (Gibbs, Tony, and later Abby), with the first story set during late SG-1 (season 7/8?) and the rest matched to Atlantis.
    Note that the Gibbs/Tony romance is featured heavily throughout, with other pairings (homosexual or not) coming in later. The series is marked as incomplete, but as far as I can tell, that's only so the author has leeway to go back and add new stories in the universe if desired not because the main storyline isn't complete.
