    Summary

    “You’re in a car with a beautiful boy, and he won’t tell you that he loves you, but he loves you. And you feel like you’ve done something terrible, like robbed a liquor store, or swallowed pills, or shoveled yourself a grave in the dirt, and you’re tired. You’re in a car with a beautiful boy, and you’re trying not to tell him that you love him, and you’re trying to choke down the feeling, and you’re trembling, but he reaches over and he touches you, like a prayer for which no words exist, and you feel your heart taking root in your body, like you’ve discovered something you didn’t even have a name for.” - Richard Siken

    Aka 5 times Richie and Eddie have a heart to heart in Eddie's drive way, and one time they maybe don't talk as much.

    Berlin slowly turned around and looked at the person who spoked. And there he was. Martin was a lot thinner but more tanned and still beautiful in Andres's eyes.

    Summary

    It's been a month since the events of the Resonance Cascade and the living hell that came with it. Gordon Freeman has been plagued by nightmares that keep him stuck in the past while everyone else around him seems to be moving on. It doesn't help that he can't seem to stop dreaming about Benry. Or that he's pretty sure Benry's back from the dead.

    Summary

    But the worst are the questions, asked by people with wide, concerned eyes, and sometimes even stupid fucking brimming tears like his fourth-grade teacher, opening their stupid mouths and asking are you alright there, Katsuki? Who did this, Katsuki? Who did this to you? as if he’s fragile or some shit.

    But it won't be like that at U.A.

    Summary

    The thing is, it’s pretty difficult to do anything when your body feels like a live wire. Having a body that’s constantly buzzing with electricity in a way that’s honestly completely indescribable--he’s tried to explain it, the way that it feels, but obviously no one could truly understand--makes everything harder. Sleeping. Studying. Workouts. Anything that requires a lot of concentration or sitting still.

    The truth is, Kaminari Denki is kind of a mess. But he knows how to handle himself, and he’s the expert in finding humor and happiness in things. He feels a lot less tired and crappy when he’s around his friends, when they laugh together and do stupid things for fun. That’s who Denki is, the fun guy, and that’s how he gets by.

     

    AKA the Kaminari angst/vent fic no one asked for but I needed.

    Summary

    Ten drinks to forget, Jaehyun smokes to get through the day, Taeyong stops eating in hopes of reaching an unreachable goal and Johnny learns the hard way that he can't save everyone.

    The only good thing to come out of all of this is each other.

    Summary

    Unbeknownst to everyone, there are side effects to a slowly breaking heart.

    Summary

    For the DC kink meme:

    ABO AU where omegas are stereotyped as pure, innocent, naive, childlike etc. Omegas are expected to bond young, give their alpha a big family and take care of the home.

    Dick is already Robin and has been for several years when he unexpectedly presents as an omega instead of a beta like both of his parents.

    Shit gets worse from there.

    Summary

    Chenle would’ve loved to be fully immersed in the dance, but there was something more pressing commanding his attention.

    His chest hurt.

    It had only been half an hour, long enough to run through the dance three times all the way through, and he felt as if he’d run ten miles without a break.

    Summary

    After the Raid a sudden meeting is called for pro heroes, including Hawks, which was incredibly ironic considering it was basically about him. Kind of. The Commission instead revealed the GT Program to the heroes Hawks just so happens to work with. As painful memories are brought up time and time again Pro Hero Eraserhead does everything in his power to let the younger hero know that he is not alone in the troubling times. The younger hero isn't even sure if he wants to push on after everything he discovered.

    Summary

    "Hello, Chris," sings a honeyed voice from behind.

    Chris' attention snaps toward the intruder, his gun already out of its' holster and aimed at whoever it is — a boy, apparently, with braided russet hair, a red jacket, and wise eyes. He's wearing a gas mask, but Chris can tell by the way his eyes crinkle around the edges, the way sun-burnt sand swirls in his irises, that he's smiling.

    Chris cocks his gun.

    "You killed my father," he says.

    "No offence, but he totally deserved it," the stranger agrees with cheerful solemnity.

    "What the hell are you doing in my home?" Chris demands. The kid is perched on a windowsill in Chris' office, as nonchalantly as if this were something he did every day, as if they were familiar.

    "I was just wondering," the kid speaks softly, fond amusement sewn through with a peculiar resignation, "how you'd feel about putting down some nazis?"

    Summary

    Virgil got a girl pregnant when he was 16.
    Realized he was gay when he was 17.
    Got kicked out that same year.
    Was left with a baby and nowhere to go.
    He figured it out.

    ‘Virgil stares at the small baby in his arms, feeling half way between mortified and exhilarated.
    His aunt, bless her soul. Gave him money for a place to stay just until he could get on his feet. So there he was. just tuned 17, two mouths ago, sitting on the bed of a hotel holding a 2 week old in his arms.
    “You’re so tiny.” Virgil said, giggling to himself.
    Of course the baby barely acknowledged his existence and continued sleeping.
    Virgil wasn’t an idiot, if he ended up not being able to take care of Patton he would put him in the system. But if there was even the smallest chance virgil could actually raise this kid, he owed it to himself, and to Patton, to give it his best damn shot.’

    Summary

    [Sequel to Love Language]

    [INDEFINITE HIATUS 5.28.2020]

    With almost two whole years at her back, Agent 3 has finally returned to Inkopolis. To her home, her family and her friends, to Marie.

    What she failed to account for, was the fact that she may not be able to repair the damage she left behind her - and the gaps in her memory that no one seems willing to fill for her don't do her any favors, either.

    -The title is a placeholder because I suck at naming things. Please send suggestions ( ;ω;)

    -I always thought persona had some good whump potential and I like Akechi so... Tags update along with the story, ask me for future tags if you need so!

    -Always open to suggestions! If you'd like to see something, leave a comment and I'll try to get to it if it fits. But I already have the basics of the story planned and written, so I hope you won't mind if I won't integrate yours.
