    Summary

    On a night submersed in rain, Sasori picks up young “trimmigant” Deidara half a mile from the Garberville bus station out of sporadic pity. An isolationist and a scorpion amongst frogs that prefers to keep to the woods, Sasori is thrust into taking on this new apprentice in tandem with “The Suna Three”, his niece and nephews hiding out from their relatives for the season. Within the forests of the Emerald Triangle in Northern California, we explore a tale of mental illness, family, and the cutthroat world of marijuana’s black market.

    Summary

    “What were you listening to”, she asked.

    Tobin wasn’t sure what to make of the interaction. Most of the kids in school just avoided her and she never did anything to change that, in fact, she preferred it.

    “It’s a mixtape… that I made”.

    “Really?”, the new girl’s eyes lit up even more than they already were. “How’d you do it?”

    Tobin shrugged her shoulders. “I listen to the radio and when they play a song I like, I record it”.

    She nods. “So what song was playing before I interrupted?”

    Summary

    Elphaba always knew there was something wrong about her. No, not the green skin thing; that was obvious, of course. This was something... different. Unusual. Strange. And for her small town in the English countryside, a child who was both green and could do magic wasn't quite seen as a good thing. So, when a mysterious letter arrives at her window, Elphaba decides to take a chance and embark on the greatest journey of her life, into a world of witches and wizards who may just be able to look past her atypical appearance and see who she truly is inside.

    Summary

    It was just another idiot John Cusacking at his estranged girlfriend. They were probably high school sweethearts, separated by scholarship opportunities and bad luck and he’d soon be serenading about giving him a second chance.

    Izzy snorted, ashing his cigarette onto the lawn before the asshole opened his mouth and started crooning:

    Today is gonna be the day that they're gonna throw it back to you.

    "Oh, fuck." Izzy’s smile fell immediately and his heart backfired like an old truck.

    Oh, fuck. Oh, God. That's his idiot.

    Izzy leaves town for college and Jack misses him a whole lot.

    Summary

    Bucky Barnes, certified dork and generally uncool nerd, starts 9th grade without friends and still carrying a torch for Steve Rogers, all round popular kid and star athlete at school who is so far out of Bucky's league he may as well be the moon.

    Then Bucky makes a new friend, new student and fellow dork Kamala Khan.

    Kamala is putting together a band, which is certainly a lot cooler than anything Bucky has ever done and he gets swept along for the ride, gaining new friends and a newfound confidence on the way.

    Which is just when Steve Rogers seems to notice him, and Bucky wonders if the moon isn't so far out of reach after all.

    Summary

    Summary

    In the autumn of 1992, up-and-coming alternative rock band The Avengers are trying to take their music to the next level. It would be complicated enough, but the anonymous reviewer for the local free arts newspaper hates them as much as their lead guitarist hates Debbie Gibson (though not as much as he hates it when people point out what terrible decisions he makes while drunk).

    Not to mention that their lead singer's personal life is about to explode in ways he's been trying to avoid since ninth grade, their rhythm guitar player is struggling to stay clean, their drummer's wife is pregnant again, their bassist might be leaving, and nobody knows what the hell is going on with the keyboard player. Or even why they have a keyboard player.

    Summary

    A story of Chrissy Cunningham and Eddie Munson reconnecting after ten years. Eddie is losing a grip on his career as a musician. Chrissy feels guilty for things that happened so long ago. Set against the backdrop of 90s New York City.

    Set post-Season 4. Alternate ending where Vecna is gone, and Eddie and Chrissy are very much still alive. Some implied Dustin x Suzie and Nancy x Steve. I've put individual chapter warnings for harsh language, explicit sex scenes, discussions of eating disorders, etc.

    Summary

    She inches forward, her feet perched precariously close to the edge of the roof, her fingers gripping the metal rail. The cool night breeze whips her red curls back from her face as she breathes it in. She wonders if this is how her father felt, if this means she’d gotten the worst parts of him after all. She thinks of her mother and of Cal, how this would slam a wrecking ball into all their plans. The thought of it is suddenly wildly delicious, in a way that frightens her.

    Rose takes a steadying breath and leans into the stillness. Maybe she can simply stay up here forever, perched over the town like a gargoyle. Maybe she can somehow will herself to become a Gorgon like Medusa. She pictures herself, her curls a tangle of snakes, her gaze silencing the gossip and the rumors with a single, terrible glance. Rose feels herself sway forward again.

    The voice comes from behind her then, equal parts pleading and commanding, and it’s as though she’s been waiting for it, summoning it. Hearing it is like feeling a cool breeze on a hot afternoon or surfacing from underwater. It’s like coming up for air. It shocks her back to herself with three words:

    “Don’t do it.”

    Summary

    The other man stops talking, looks straight at him. And Trent was wrong, the look he had fixed on him earlier was not a smile, not really. Because now he is smiling at him, and it is nothing short of a beam, bright and open, and there are dimples, and even though the other man has a face that is more narrow than not, all Trent can think of as he looks at him is ‘corn fed’.

    Trent does a year abroad in the states, gets assigned a football player as a roommate and has his life turned upside down. It's all horribly cliched, until it isn't.
