    Summary

    Previously titled Universal Crimes.

    By nature, Steven is a giver. By nurture, Spinel becomes a taker. When the vengeful gem storms Beach City with weapons at the ready, she easily overwhelms the Crystal Gems. While Steven struggles to heal his friends, Spinel taunts and teases. But, watching him care for them sends her into a jealous spiral. It isn’t long before jealousy turns into obsession. And obsession…into possession. Steven doesn’t know it, but he isn’t just on a time limit to save his friends and the planet from Spinel, but to save himself as well.

    Summary

    “Heya, Steven. Y’know what?” Spinel hisses quietly into his ear, her breath fanning against him. It makes him want to shiver.

    "What?” Steven whispers back, figuring he should play along. Nausea flows through him, and he swallows it back, waiting.

    “You’re really my best, best, bestest friend.”

    Spinel decides to stay on earth, and Steven's empathy becomes a weakness.

    Summary

    Stevonnie doesn't crash the Star Skipper onto that jungle moon. Instead, they crash on a craggy fragment of rock suspended thousands of miles away from its associated colony, long forgotten.

    On that lonely hunk of rock is a domed garden.

    And standing in that garden, just as lifeless seeming as the rest of it, is a pink Gem.

    Summary

    Harry Potter, raised and abused by the Dursleys ever since his parents died, lives in the cupboard under the stairs. He has no friends or family who love him and his life is dull until one day a letter arrives arrives for him, written in green ink, that promises freedom. Sounds familiar, right?

    King Thomas Riddle's illness combined with his political paranoia pushes him to arrange three royal balls, after which his son, Prince Tom Riddle, must choose a guest to marry, thereby securing the kingdom's future and solidifying their strength in the eyes of their allies/enemies. Tom is convinced that he will be able to defy his father and choose no-one, or at least he is until at the first ball he meets an attractive stranger with dark hair and glasses who won't tell anyone his name...
