    Summary

    Jonathan Sims likes books more than people, but when he applied to do a Masters in Egyptian Archaeology, he couldn't anticipate how many PEOPLE would become part of his life. Between oversharing collaborators, creepy supervisors, obnoxious assistants, unhinged acquaintances, anxious and confusing second-years, and a woman literally living on his sofa; he really can't cope with any extra pressure. So, when discrepancies start appearing in the research around the Serapeum of Alexandria, Jon does what anybody would.

    He keeps on searching. And everything that emerges; conspiracy, friendship, fear, vulnerability, mugs of tea; can't always be found in books.

    (University AU, loosely inspired by the mentions of the Serapeum in MAG 53: Crusader)

    Summary

    On the first day of Lan Zhan’s first class of senior year, Wei Ying walks into his classroom.

    “Oh, good morning, Wei Ying!” says Professor Song cheerfully, because she has betrayed him. She smiles at Wei Ying, because she has betrayed him, and then she gestures at Lan Zhan and says, “This is Lan Zhan, have you two met before?” because she has betrayed him.

    “No,” Wei Ying answers, and sticks his hand out at Lan Zhan. “Nice to meet you!”

    “The two of you are going to be TA’ing this class together,” Professor Song goes on, like she has not just thrown off Lan Zhan’s entire day and possibly his entire month. “And, of course, helping out with my research together as well, so I hope you two can get along well!”

     

    or; Lan Zhan tries very hard not to be Wei Ying's friend. He does not succeed.

    Summary

    What do you do when you get dumped by the love of your life?
    Cry. Eat ice cream. Watch movies where high school jocks fall in love with nerd girls and try not to remember how you're "too gay" for your ex.
    Maybe even arson.
    But you don't quit your dancing career, stalk your ex-boyfriend across the country, and enroll at the same Ivy League Law School as them.

    That would be crazy.
    And stupid.

     

    And like the plot of a romantic comedy or something.

    Summary

    Born in the 90s, university student, short and with lots of human friends: Persephone really has a terrible divine curriculum. Mortals don't worship her, Gods don't invite her to their mundane events, and all in all it would be fine for her. Or at least this is what she thinks.

    Everything changes when at a conference she meets Hades, God of the dead. His too is a heavy baggage: three hundred thousand years of age, seven feet tall, at least twenty titles on his name. But he's also the only one understaning Persephone's passion for law subjects, as well as the only one who seems uncomfortable among the other deities as much as her. How couldn't they get along?

    They find themselves intertwining their destinies and working together to issue a controversial judgement, collaborating in a trial of souls in the court of the Underworld. And so, halfway between irony and seriousness, fairness and rigor, life and death, this is the (semi) modern reinterpretation of a myth that has never stopped being told.

    How is she supposed to put the pieces of her broken life back together when she can't trust anybody, including herself?

    Summary

    Láeg is hoping for a quiet year in which he can obtain his Master's, a job offer, and a sense of purpose, with the absolute minimum of drama. What he's got is a seventeen-year-old undergrad as a flatmate, and life around Cú Chulainn is anything but quiet or drama-free...

    Literally just a ridiculous college AU in which Láeg and Cú Chulainn are flatmates. Occasional smatterings of angst, but mostly fluff; nobody's *dead* so we're automatically doing better than the source material. Featuring ballet, group chats, procrastibaking, crime, and general shenanigans, but anything resembling a plot is coincidental. Absolutely no planning or editing went into the creation of this fic, and that's the way I like it; you've been warned.

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian is the first person in recent memory to drop Law Review without something like a death in the family to excuse the snub. It’s the talk of his 3L classmates, and by lunch, the entire campus seems to be buzzing with the outrage of it. Especially when Editor in Chief Nie Mingjue and Staff Editor Lan Xichen post to the Journal’s social media and confirm that they will not be filling the vacancy.

    Wei Wuxian refuses to explain himself. Lan Wangji refuses to let it go.
