    Summary

    In the small country town of Garreg Mach in the 1980s, Edelgard von Hresvelg has recently graduated high school. Bored to death working at her father's small woodworks store, the light of her life rests inside Byleth; a woman she has adored for many years. On the night of a party thrown by Mercedes, Edelgard decides two things; the first? She's going to tell Byleth she loves her. The second? She's going to follow up a lead on something kind of weird she saw outside her father's store today.

    But when weird turns into sinister, Edelgard von Hresvelg finds that she could never have prepared for the truth behind her small town's sleepy facade.

    Summary

    At the moment Peter is 17 years old, plus 8 months, 19 days, 11 hours, 1 minute and 32 seconds. He is supposed the be the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man of Queens, New York. Only instead, he's on another planet, staring down a dude who looks like the California Raisin got jacked, and he's scared shitless.

    When Peter is 17 years, 8 months, 19 days, 11 hours, 1 minute and 33 seconds old, he is still Spider-Man. He is still from Queens. He is supposed to be... somewhere. Probably not a hospital bed in 1987 Massachusetts. What the hell did he do this time?

    Plot-divergent AU starting from mid-Infinity War, in which Thanos decides to test out his newly acquired Infinity Stones in an interesting form of revenge or mercy or torture. (Let's face it, he's a fan of all three.)

    Summary

    Frank is as pessimistic as they come and for a gay man, he's rather homophobic. He's never sat to think about how the world might not be as terrible as he thinks; but when this poet with his jet-black hair and olive eyes gets his way with him, he finds himself starting to see things in a different light.

    Summary

    “Fine…” After a pause, Ernst shifted his weight away from Hanschen, sucking in air before asking. “Who do you like?”
    “God, this is boring, give me a dare.”
    “I gave you a truth! Answer it!”
    “I don’t wanna! Give me a dare!” Ernst shook his head, resting his chin on his knees and staring out, across the quiet night. Hanschen watched him for a few breaths, trying to find in his gaze what he was looking for. Then, he turned to stare out across the lake, searching for whatever had caught Ernst. “And make it a good one…” He almost whispered, hugging his knees even tighter.
    “I dare you to kiss me.”

    Summary

    Ferdinand von Aegir looks like both Duran Duran and Spandau Ballet grouped together and vomited on him, and he manages to turn every single head whenever he walks into a room, but only one leather jacket-wearing weirdo catches his eye.

    Gratuitously smutty and ridiculous 80's AU. Hubert is in a punk rock band and Ferdie is... Ferdie.

    Summary

    She gives him a questioning look. “I thought it was a work of fiction.”

    “Doesn’t all fiction have some basis in real life experience?”

    A mental hiccup kicks its way through his brain as he remembers he never once hinted to anyone – the editors, the interviewers, even his father - that there was a hint of truth to the story, and yet the confession settles there, idling between the words. She smiles like she has caught him in an admission of guilt, and he thinks offhand if the scales of fate were controlled by a girl like her, he would willingly offer up his pound of flesh for her judgment. “To some extent,” he adds like a last ditch effort to mislead her.

    He feels like something has been taken from him, and he gave it up too freely. She turns her green eyes back to the first page, rereads the first sentence, and he watches her gaze sharpen with interest, not so polite, something with more intention.

    Summary

    The Blossom twins went out on a boat ride just after dawn. Only Jason Blossom returned alive, his twin slumped over him, shot in the chest, their clothes (once white) drenched in her blood. Sheriff FP Jones has no choice but to arrest the Blossom boy. Jason swears he didn’t kill her. She was his twin.

    Shooting that girl was an accident, but Fred had to admit that he was glad to benefit from the boy’s arrest. Murdering Hiram had been a lapse of judgement on Fred’s part. Things can go back to normal. Except that Hermione has shown up and insisted they marry.

    Veronica Lodge doesn’t know that she believes that Jason Blossom killed her father. His sister? Sure. Everyone has been whispering about how close – too close – the Blossom twins were. The facts for her father don’t add up. Why would her mother have uprooted their lives from the Dakota and Spence to Riverdale and – ugh – public school, and why would she marry a blue-collar construction worker if she wasn’t trying to hide something? Her new stepbrother is a typical jock, and the only person whose remotely caught her eye is his girlfriend, Betty.

    Betty Jones. The girl next door. Accidental-acceptor of Archie Andrews’ second grade proposal.

    Summary

    The year is 1989, roughly three decades after the emergence of the first quirks. Experts speculate these strange new phenomena to be a byproduct of the nuclear tests conducted nonstop by the world’s warring superpowers. All the excess radiation in the air seems to have accelerated the rate of generational mutations, and now more than 20% of the world’s population has an enhanced ability of some kind. This isn’t exactly good news, though. Further studies soon indicate that those with quirks statistically don’t live to see their thirtieth birthday.

    Despite this, Katsuki and his friends are doing their best to live out normal lives, doing normal teenage things like hanging out at the mall or going to the movies. They try to ignore the world’s insanity - and the fact that three of them have developed quirks.

    One new discovery might throw a wrench in their efforts.

    Summary

    France, 1986. A lot of things had changed in ten years. The last time he was in Paris, Erwin had been young, in love, and the country’s most acclaimed cellist, his future so bright ahead of him that it was easy to pretend.
    Now, he was a broken man, hollow and resigned to drown under the weight of his shattered pieces. His past was all that lay in front of him, and he had been a fool to believe he could resume his life where he’d left it. For one, his salvation had been torn from him, for he would never be able to hold a cello in his hands ever again.

    Unless there was another empty soul who needed it just as much as he did.
