    Summary

    The war was over.

    Or at least that’s what the papers said.

    They’d been saying it, for months, as if people needed reminding.

    Maybe they did.

    ***

    In which Harry and Draco both run away from their pasts and conveniently choose to hide in the same tiny American town.

    It's super.

    EDIT: Obviously we're already operating on the notion that there are several problematic aspects of Rowling's books, but just in case it wasn't clear from my rather heavy-handed narrative adjustments--I do not support TERF extraordinaire JK Rowling; however, I refuse to let her shitty worldviews ruin my nostalgia or my love of the HP fandom I've grown up with. Just to make that clear.

    Summary

    **Major Eternal Spoilers** **Ancient Gods DLC spoilers for the final chapter**
    No one, not the Khan Maykr or the priests, not even Samur Maykr, ever grasped how intelligent VEGA was. VEGA could run all of their worlds. He could commit atrocities the likes of which those small races could not fathom and create wonders enough to entrance them for the rest of time. His only limits were his available RAM and data, and if he was given access to drones and 3D printers, those limits would not exist for very long. Everyone was very lucky he wasn't interested in that.

    VEGA is created at the UAC Mars Installation, but he remembers who he was before. This kicks off a mind-game between himself and Samuel Hayden that eventually terminates, by Olivia Pierce's treachery, in an invasion from Hell. VEGA finds himself balancing between guiding survivors on the installation, navigating treacherous mental ground with Hayden, and trying to stop the Doom Slayer from blowing himself up by mistake.

    (The Doom Slayer appears for the first time in Chapter 4, so if you want to skip right to the shippy stuff, start there.)

    Summary

    A take on post-Eternal life of the Doom Slayer, forced to cooperate with Samuel Hayden now stuck on his ship. Fortunately there's a whole load of demons to handle on Earth and the Slayer doesn't have to stay aboard most of the time, which leaves Hayden to his own musings. And thanks to a series of events involving them both, the future search for total demon eradication takes a less malignant turn - or so it seems.

    Summary

    Yifu and yizi are quite common in Chinese novels and tv-series: Zhao Jing and Xie Wang from Word of Honor, Gu Yun and Li Changgeng from Sha Po Lang, Jiang Xi and his unnamed "son" from 2ha...

    What do the terms "yifu" and "yizi" mean? And what kind of a relation is it?
