    Summary

    "Bred to kill them all,
    Victim of what said should be.
    A servant 'til I fall,
    Soldier boy, made of clay.
    Now an empty shell,
    Twenty one, only son.
    But he served us well.
    Bred to kill, not to care.

    I was born for dying."

    Eddie had died. Was dead. Is dead.
    Dustin had held him as his heart stopped beating. Watched the life leave those once bright eyes. His hands had been coated in Eddie's blood. He had scrubbed his hands raw to clean his skin of his friend. He had died.
    So the only possible conclusion as to why Eddie Munson was sitting in his room, looking like he just ran like a bat out of hell, was a twisted, guilt conjured hallucination.

    Or

    Eddie Munson returns from the dead. Not exactly human. Looking for help. And starving.

    Summary

    The peace left in the wake of the revolution and the Templar's occupation of the New World is a tentative one. Connor and his Assassins do what they can to hold things together, but the wound is still too raw, the world still too angry. But they manage - they always, somehow, manage. Injustice may be a pestilence that will prove incurable, but it was never in Connor's nature to give up, and now that the revolution is done he turns his attention to other things.

    And, for a while, all seems to be well - until two wounded strangers turn up on his doorstep and whispers of a new Templar threat rise upon the wind.

    Summary

    Ancient and vengeful vampire Kylo Ren accidentally acquires a stray human pest, who eventually isn't a pest at all.

    "At the border of his land is where he found her, nestled in the corpse of a treant trunk, shivering and wearing that soaked, filthy burlap. She was curled in on herself protectively, as though her fetal form would save her from the biting cold of the night, or unforgiving instinct of nocturnal predators. Her hair clung to her skin, her dry lips cracked and parted with shallow breaths, a feverish tint to her skin and sweat coating her brow.

    Kylo should leave her there, he really should, what was one more human dead?

    And this one had followed him from the archers camp, he knew, from several nights past.

    A weak thing she was.

    He found himself pulling her to his chest, and lifting her in his arms. "

    Summary

    Work as an Auror led Jade down an incredibly dark path that she never anticipated. Every case that she was assigned showed her one more horrible thing that a person could be capable of; one more facet of humanity that left her bruised and broken. Regarded as a famed heroine after what would become the First Wizarding War, Jade is under heavy scrutiny at every turn, especially when she chooses to stand trial against her best friend for... murder. This endeavor lands her with the chance of a lifetime: she's headed back to Hogwarts, this time as a professor.

    Jade's new job connects her with another old friend... one who is none too thrilled to see her. Severus Snape is nearly unrecognizable, no longer anything like the boy she knew in her youth. Jade is in for a bumpy ride with each year bringing her a new challenge to teach her something about herself, as well as the boy that became a man somewhere in the space between graduation and her return to Hogwarts.

    It's a long and difficult road, but Jade inevitably learns what happens when one makes a whole out of two broken souls.

    -LOOSELY follows canon, but there's so many big divergences that I couldn't really call it a retelling. WIP but it will be LONG-

    Summary

    "When Barbara Holland died that night in 1983, pulled into the Harrington family’s pool by a creature she thought scarier than death, that was that. Death was an irreversible thing that no one could escape, and time was something that was fixated in their world. No one could just turn back time to make Nancy Wheeler hear her best friend calling out from the Upside Down, nor could you turn back time to make Steve Harrington hear the same. You couldn’t turn back time and convince Barb to leave her best friend to go to the little get-together on her own, and you certainly couldn’t reverse time to bring the life back to her eyes."

    This fic strays away from the idea of only Billy and/or Eddie surviving in the Upside Down, and it adds the idea of everyone who had an Upside Down-related death surviving. This focuses on Barb at first, and then we get to see everyone show up as they 'die'!

    Will Include: Barbara, Bob, Billy, Chrissy, Fred, Patrick, Jason, and Eddie.

    Summary

    In the summer of 1988, exactly a month before the start of their senior year, Mike packs the whole Party into his shitty, run-down crapshot of a car (which technically isn't even his, officially, but that's being needlessly pedantic) and drives off into the blinding taillights of the congested Indiana interstate. They're done saving the world. Now it's time to see it.

    Summary

    The oldest Sinclair sibling, Tonya Sinclair. Has fought and struggled their entire life in Hawkins. They have found a strategy that helps them survive in their cursed nowhere town. Everything seems to be working out fine for them until they meet a west coast douchebag named Billy Hargrove. The two teens face highs and lows trying to achieve friendship, eventually turning their world upside down.

    Or that Harringrove/ Buckleway fic where they have friends from all walks of life who defend their love. And would protect them with everything they have. A true love story that actually tries to tackle homophobia and racism in the 80s in its storylines.
