    Summary

    After taking a tumble off a cliff, Arthur Morgan has lost all memory of who he is. A group called the Pinkertons offer him a choice. Join them and hunt down outlaws or hang. At the time it seemed like an easy decision but now, looking at the grief in Hosea's expression, he wondered if maybe he'd spoken too soon. "son" he had been called. "my boy" the gang leader had said... how did they know him? And why did Agent Ross and Milton get so much enjoyment out of the situation? And why is everyone in the gang looking at him like he betrayed them?

    Summary

    With music being as important to him as it is, it’s never been just something to fill the silence. Music fills a piece of him that has always been empty. Music is a part of him, filling the gaps in his soul and sewing together all of the things that have been ripped from him too soon. Every lyric is attuned to who he is, telling his story with its poetic harmony. Peter has spent his whole life pouring his heart and soul over every word, finding ways to release his pain with the utterance of every syllable. The music is his, and he is the music.

    Now, it seems the music has a bigger hole to fill.

     
    Or, Peter succumbs to madness and vigilante-style tendencies following the events of Endgame.

    Summary

    13 years ago, Wei Wuxian ran away from what he had done, turning his back on his friends, his family, his future, and the one person who had began to matter to him the most.

    Now, on the cusp of thirty, Wei Ying finds himself back where it all started with a low profile job, exactly two friends in all of the country, a masked neighbor who seems to be a different person entirely than what everyone says, and too many memories he would rather forget.

    At the same time, his old classmates are turning up dead in a grisly manner...and the prime suspect is him. Worst of all, the head investigator for the case is none other than Lan Wangji, the person Wei Ying wants to avoid at all costs.

    Summary

    Congratulations!

    You are now 18 years old, meaning you are of the eligible age to get your DNA tested and see who your destined Alpha / Omega is! You don’t have to take the test once you’re 18, but it is mandatory for every Alpha and Omega to take it before they reach the age of 26. After you take the test, please note that it takes one month for the results to come in. In the occurrence that your results come as void, it means that your destined soulmate has not taken their test yet, so you will need to wait until you are contacted again. Please also note that it is also possible that you do not have a destined soulmate, but it is a very rare phenomenon.

    Congratulations once again, and may you live a happily ever after with your destined Alpha / Omega!

    Summary

    Still blindly following Clave orders, Alec infuriates Magnus and gets kicked out of the loft. Magnus nurses his emotional wounds and Dot shows up.

Alec unwittingly gets caught in the middle. This doesn't bode well for either of them in the (tumultous) aftermath.

    The currents of time flow only ever onward, with little variance. Misrule takes is place in the eight corners, the Brass Tower walks, the Trice-Blessed fall.

    Summary

    The untold stories get buried in a grave of secrecy and illness. Nevertheless, trauma and violence demand attention. Murder will out. Atrocities emerge, if not symbolically, if not through language, as illusions, fantasies and ghosts.

    Bucky recognized he was fucked in the head. A broken skull and electricity often resulted in brain damage. He relearned how to walk and speak. He kept his name written on a piece of paper to carry around. He holed himself up in his room for days and yelled at anyone who crossed ways with him. Steve was convinced it was all part of the onerous path of recovery.

    Until Bucky started going psychotic.

    Summary

    "(Kevin’s) a guy that’s suffered extreme physical and sexual abuse his entire childhood, and at an early age, started to dissociate and fragment...He doesn’t want to be alive…And so the rest of the group has to keep him out of consciousness because when he gains consciousness he’s really ready to commit suicide...

    (Split) reveal(ed) that the villains and the heroes and the antagonist and the antagonized are actually way more similar than we thought."

    -James McAvoy

    Both Barry and Dennis love Kevin fiercely and work tirelessly to relieve him of his suffering. As the years go by and Kevin shows no signs of improving, Dennis is persuaded to pay an unthinkable price in the name of protecting his charge, but Barry doesn't believe such an offering is theirs to give.

    He soon comes to realize that even a brotherhood forged by struggle and pain is not exempt from being offered up as a sacrifice to the alter of the Beast.

    Summary

    Like a gargoyle he watched the streets below. The lights around these buildings highlighted his body with a myriad of colors, but luckily for him nobody ever seemed to look up. Another wintry breeze made him shiver, forcing him to bury half of his face into the silvery capture weapon around his neck until it died down. He reached up and lifted the goggles from his face, rubbing his eyes with an exhausted sigh. It seems tonight would be another wasted night. Searching… for what exactly? He didn’t know.

    Eraserhead stood and was about to move on. At that moment the hairs on the back of his neck and his arms raised, and he knew it wasn’t from the cold. Something clicked within him as he grasped his capture weapon and scanned the streets.

    “Where…?” He growled to himself as his whole body tensed.

    He whirled around to look down into the alleyway and froze. There, at the end of the alley, a dark shadowy portal rose from the ground.
