    "A spiral of brilliant, impossible to name colors, whirled around him, the force of the wind buffeting him as he stared at the sacred fire with abject wonderment and terror. He was once again worthy. He had once again, somehow, won the faith of the old masters. He was blessed by Agni." (Chapter 22)

    Summary

    This fic is the slowest of slow burns. It was intentionally written to build gradually as a cohesive narrative that expands over time because you can't get a good emotional release without FOREPLAY.

    What if Ed didn't go full 'Evil-Ed' post Stede? How would Izzy react to an Ed that still wasn't quite right even though Bonnet was gone?

    What would it be like if they thought Stede Bonnet was fucking dead, but then he wasn't?

    Themes include: grief, loss, guilt, forgiveness, hurting people you love, healing, backsliding, the effects of childhood trauma, consent, power dynamics.

    There will be no themes of sexual assault/violence in excess of the show.

    I'm not over tagging this jawn because I don't want to spoil the whole story ahead of time. Where's the fun if you know half of what you can expect from the tags alone. Don't you just want to let a story unfold, friend?

    Fuck counter: 237 fucks (I mean the word. They haven't fucked 237 times. That would be ludicrous)

    Summary

    After breaking free of his HYDRA programming, James 'Bucky' Barnes finds the world is very different from the one he left. With the help of friends and allies, he's managed to piece most of his memories back together but after the Battle of Earth, he finds himself walking a razor-thin wire. With a therapist who is constantly pestering him, and his childhood friend by his side, Bucky is given a pardon for his past crimes but as a condition of his parole, he needs to have a partner with him at all times.

    The only problem is that his new partner is a nightmare.

    Elena Constantin is a disaster of a human being in Bucky's opinion. Too hostile, too brash, and certified bat shit crazy not to mention she has a bad habit of stealing his socks but shockingly she's the only person who's not afraid of the parts of The Winter Soldier still lurking inside him. Somehow Elena knew before everyone else that HYDRA was a devil with the power to control a master assassin and they've met before.

    As Bucky untangles the thread binding their lives together he finds that trying to live a normal life is way harder than any mission.

    Summary

    "Every heart sings a song, incomplete, until another heart whispers back."

    Historia's world tips upside down when her girlfriend of one and a half year, Ymir, unexpectedly passes away at the beginning of their third summer together. Being seventeen is already hard enough without the weight of grieving a lifetime in which she could have been someone else. Friends, future projects, her own person; it all seems suddenly bleak, as if her dreams vanished with the person who inspired them.

    But Ymir left something behind: the photo album Historia gifted her for her birthday, filled with the best pictures Ymir took during their years together. The discovery brings many familiar memories back, but also many surprises, namely pages and pages of never seen before pictures with notes scribbled on their back, and raises many questions. How much can you find about someone after they left? How much can you uncover from smiles captured for eternity?

    What will the seasons of Historia's first year without Ymir make her discover about others and herself?

    Summary

    Después de una guerra quedan heridas que no necesariamente son físicas. Muchos siguen su vida pero otros toman malas decisiones y deben empezar por sanar su alma y perdonarse a sí mismos antes de darle un nuevo sentido a su existencia, sabiendo que para curar las heridas emocionales se puede requerir tiempo, pero más que todo, es imprescindible aceptar los acontecimientos tal y como sucedieron para poder dejar ir lo que un día hizo tanto daño. EWE.

    Summary

    Sakura is the best at chakra control in Team 7. What she does with it is decidedly… unconventional. Naruto is dumbfounded. Sasuke is quietly scared senseless. And her sensei? Kakashi couldn't be prouder of his little voyeur in the making. A connected series of 100 word drabbles where Sakura and her team learn some much-needed lessons. Mostly slice-of-life, high T rating. Mature-rated here to play it safe; the worst is some nudity right off the bat and underage drinking forthcoming.

    Summary

    “If hate has its eye on you, then all you can do is fight it.”

    [Year 1] Back when magic was different, when guardians held their protective hands over people, wishes were still miracles that could conquer even death. But the price is a journey with cruel obstacles. A long road, one which Luna finds herself at the beginning of when she is chosen by a small sylph to be a Seeker.
    With her wish on her lips and courage in her heart, she enters her first year of Hogwarts under the Seeker's Star - only to be hunted by shadows. For the Guardian of Hate is against her quest and the objects themselves hold a danger that cannot be controlled.

    Summary

    "De repente, todo o calor que o vinho lhe trouxe acumulou-se em seus olhos, umedecendo-os, e nem a brisa fresca que soprou seus cabelos pôde contê-lo. Ela se lembrou então do poema de Podrick. 'A felicidade é areia que me escorre pelos dedos, chance que escapa diante do meu olhar.' E não havia nada mais adequado para descrever o que Sansa sentia ao ver o homem por quem se apaixonara sorrir e rir para sua irmã mais nova – porque a verdade era que ele sorria para Arya e apenas para Arya."

    O Professor Tyrion Lannister é famoso por suas ideias infalíveis em destruir seus alunos, seja psicológica, financeira ou emocionalmente. Sansa Stark nunca fora afetada por elas antes – ao menos não antes de ser emparelhada com Gendry Waters, um rapaz ríspido e mal-humorado por quem ela não pode evitar se apaixonar. Eventualmente, no entanto, ela percebe que talvez ele seja o cara certo para outra pessoa – e aceitar isso dói, assim como dói aceitar tantas outras coisas. Mas, embora a vida machuque, sempre se pode aprender algo de bom e bonito com ela. E tudo isso será essencial para dissecar seu eu lírico do poema que Sansa escrevera no lugar da sua real história, com a ajuda de seus amigos e de alguém novo também.

    Summary

    Senior year was the last mile in a very long race. She was going to go through with it the same way she has the previous years. By respecting the rules she's made for herself. Keep her head bowed, study hard, and don't engage with others more than necessary. Being invisible meant being safe. Her mental health depended on it, and so she ignored the darker emotions festering in the deepest corners of her heart.

    Then Damian Wayne sat next to her, an unexpected, unwanted guest in the journey she's planned thoroughly for herself, sending everything off the rail. Neither one expected the deep ramifications that would follow.

    AU! to Providence, no vigilante universe. This work portrays Damian and Fay meeting in an alternate world, as different people and under different circumstances. Many of the characters in Providence will also have an alternate version of themselves, including the Batfam, but familiarity with Providence (on-going) is not needed to read this fanfic at all. This is a stand-alone work.

    Summary

    Kim Seungmin, son of the Kims who ruined Hyunjin’s parents’ business, is the perfect student, always disgustingly diligent, always dressed in dry-cleaned, posh, designer clothes, and always the one Hyunjin is getting compared to by his parents. As far as Hyunjin knows, Kim Seungmin is like his parents and thinks athletes are lowlifes leeching off of college resources, so why the hell was he at Hyunjin’s soccer game? Had he been there the whole time?
    Hyunjin scoffs to himself, thinking, He was probably here to judge or to feel better than everyone else.

    If you couldn’t guess yet, Hyunjin dislikes Seungmin, and he’d rather avoid him, but if Seungmin thinks that he can just show up to their games and feel all smug about it, he better think twice about expecting Hyunjin to just let it slide.

    Summary

    Adam grew up hating the Butterfly Family long before he ever met them. He knew of the Family's penchant for tyranny, cruelty and megalomania. He knew how they brutally enslaved, tortured or executed all who opposed them. The Butterflies are unstoppable and absolute - their dark shadow stretching across almost every dimension in the multiverse.

    So when Adam acquires magical powers from a mysterious fragment of a wand, he sets out on a mission to put an end to the Butterfly rule. Permanently.

    Until he winds up thrown through a portal into another multiverse. Now, he's trapped there, surrounded by ghosts.

    Unbeknownst to him, though, his world is catching up to him. The Dark Butterflies are coming, bringing a whole multiverse of slaughter with them. Whether he likes it or not, Adam is going to have to protect the kingdom he hated most.
