    Summary

    "Hey, kid," Hawks said, in such a markedly serious tone that Izuku was turning to look up at him almost before he was aware of it.

    "Are you sure that you want to be a Hero?"

    It was irony, probably, that the day Izuku and Todoroki celebrated the latter getting his Provisional Hero License was also the first that Izuku ever questioned his decision to become a Hero.

    Summary

     


    Arranea Serket and Meenah Peixes once led a motley collection of rejects and outcasts - disgraces to their blood castes and outlawed from Alternian Society. But if you wanted something messy done without anyone looking too closely, they could help you out - for the right price. That all ended one day and none of them much like to talk about it.

    When Arranea and Meenah are approached by a mysterious benefactor with deep pockets and vague requests, they're suspicious. But then they're given an offer they can't pass up: A chance for their past lives to be wiped clean. A chance to have their inner-most needs and desires fulfilled in ways they never thought possible. And all they need to do is a single job - a simple heist for the mystery client.

    By the time they realize what's really happening, it's too late to back out. They must discover the truth behind their enigmatic patron and unravel the truth of what happened to them a half a sweep ago - before their very world is destroyed.

    Summary

    How has he given Sebastian this power? How has Sebastian figured out all these things about him when they haven’t shared anything but each other’s bodies? If he weren’t so convinced Sebastian’s shame mirrored his own, he’d think him a spy. He’s let him too close. He risks too much.

    He forces his pistol between their bodies, where it settles snug and reassuring at the small of his back. “I wish I could hate you.”

    Sebastian’s hands fall away. “You do.”

    He takes a deep breath. “Not enough.”

    [Sebastian Smythe and Blaine Anderson are members of rival gang families. Any interaction between their family that isn't business or murder is unthinkable. But the two of them crash together and start a dangerous relationship that could prove their undoing. The relationship they build could mean their deaths.]

    Summary

    In a forgotten church, on a desolate coast, in an orphaned city, enters a woman. She walks with purpose, slowly and methodically, over the creaking wooden floors. Eyes casting around, looking for… something, even she is not sure what. Patterns. Data. And their inverse; Pattern breaks. Outliers. Things which do not belong.

    Summary

    “Best you don’t try anything,” Alfred warned, getting back in his car. “That’s all I’m saying.”

    Jerome turned out his pockets methodically, and then unbuttoned his sleeves, rolling them up.

    “There’s not a weapon on me above the ankles,” he said, hands in front of him. “Scout’s honor.”

    “No time for this,” Jeri sighed, revving the Mustang’s engine. “Ride with him. Meet us there.”

    Jerome shrugged at her, turning back to Alfred as he set his pockets in order. “That kosher?”

    “Peachy,” Alfred muttered, unlocking the passenger-side door. “Get in before I change my mind.”

    Summary

    “You’ve been pushing something down ever since you got back from Revachol. It’s been festering in you since you shook hands with Kim in the whirling. A mind project has been slowly turning like the cogs of a run down machine. A different kind of thought experiment this time. It feels different, is what you mean, but you don’t know how. It looms.
    You’re afraid of it.”

    Summary

    Licking the Philosopher's Stone was perhaps not something Harry would have done if he'd known what it was. But that act, along with so many others, started him down his path to building a library with Hermione and Millicent while Tom lurked in the background. So, he was happy with how things turned out.

    Summary

    A return to Canterlot for a funeral inspires some existential questions in Ponyville's resident librarian, but the answers she finds may better serve the Goddesses of the Dayspring and the Nighttide.

    Luna offers her a sympathetic ear and takes her on a journey into dreams.

    Summary

    “Are you sure God should be cursing?” Taehyung goaded. He was probably enjoying the whole thing too much. But how often does one dream about meeting an odd representation of God? “Wait, is this the part you tell me that I’m actually not as human as I thought I was? Because that honestly would be the shit.”

    “No,” God said, already massaging his temples. “You are absolutely a part of the mundane human species.”

    “If you put it that way, it’s sad.”

    “Not as sad as the world ending, Taehyung.” The purple haired man attempted.

    “And how is the world ending exactly? As far as I know you’re just telling me all this as some sort of prank. You know what happened when they said 2012 was the end of the world? I almost—”

    “Tae, I swear, shut the fuck up,” the other man hissed, slapping a hand on Taehyung’s mouth, only to be met when a warm and wet sensation hit the skin of his palm. “Did you just…fucking lick me?”

    Or

    In which Fate fucked up and Taehyung has to win his soulmate back.

    Summary

    In order to function as a team, as guides to Homeworld immigrants, and as eventual galactic ambassadors of peace, the Crystal Gems first and foremost must work out what they mean to each other. Friends? Family? Something beyond the platonic boundary?

    Summary

    title as in "the mortifying ordeal of being known," except with a bonus of Excessive Trauma And Anxiety And High Profile Status, with people only seeing the rock-star prosecutor who looks like his brother, and the imposing Twisted Samurai....

    Will probably only be a few chapters, but I'm having fun, so. Basically I want to exhibit, as a queer-nonbinary-gray-aspec-it's-complicated person myself, the whole 'shared bond' dynamic where they deeply care about each other - without getting romantically involved. AKA, Simon and Klavier connect on a visceral level as friends and queerplatonic partners.
