    Summary

    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. The White Tower is doomed to crumble, the Tower of Snow is destined to bleed, and one way or another, the Wheel will turn on the Last Dragonborn. It matters little where, or on who.

    One hapless Snow Elf finds this out the hard way.

    (Now with tasty translations for your reading convenience.)

    Summary

    The house on Neibolt was standing again.

    Bill was talking about going in alone. How?

    “So does somebody want to say something?” Eddie asked, still breathing, still fucking breathing and alive and not dripping his Goddamn organs out of his chest.

    “Richie said it the b-best when we were here last,” Bill said.

    “Holy fuck.”

    Summary

    sub·mer·sion (v): the action or state of submerging or being submerged
    sub·merge (v): completely cover or obscure

     

    First year high school student Yuugi Mutou is an avid gamer, an unfortunate social pariah, and the shortest kid in his class. Aside from that, though, he's a relatively normal teenager. A relatively normal teenager who has just solved the Millennium Puzzle, a supposedly magical Egyptian artifact, in the hopes that by doing so, he will be granted his wish for friends.

    Amazingly, his wish is granted. He's gained two new friends! But they're not all he's gained.

    By completing the puzzle he's unleashed a spirit of the shadows, and as he comes to realize, the price he must pay is horribly steep: the spirit has chosen Yuugi as its host.

    Darkness is descending on Domino City.

     

    -Or-

     

    The loss of identity and the sands of time force the Puzzle spirit into an almost animalistic mindset, a dark soul clings too tightly to the light, and no one reacts well to realizing they're possessed.

    Summary

    "There you are, Midoriya Izuku."

    By all means, it should have been the soft, calm way Kacchan spoke that clued him in. It should be the fact that he had not seen his childhood friend since that horrible night in the mountains where Izuku had been just too weak and slow to reach him in time.

    But its not.

    It's how the face and the hair were the same but the person hiding behind his eyes was different. What were once bright, lively eyes full of energy were now alight with something deceptive and sinister and wrong , hiding among familiar ruby red like a snake in the grass. The sight of that angular face, not darkened by its usual frown but smoothed out by eerie, unnatural, uncharacteristic calmness set the hair at the back of his neck on end.

    Kacchan then smiles. It's a soft grin, as pliant and serene as the look in his eyes. It's the smile of someone who has all the time in the world. Someone who could do anything they wanted and they were confident that the world would bend to their will.

    It's at that moment that Izuku understands that the person behind those eyes wasn't Kacchan at all.

    (Or; In the face of mortality, All for One makes a decision.)

    Summary

    The team gets struck with an Ability causing anyone in the vicinity to fall head over heels for Ranpo, of all people.
    It can be reversed easily enough, so there's no reason for concern, right?
    There's a catch, though. There's one thing causing a problem.
    Kunikida isn't acting any different.
    Meanwhile, Chuuya and Akutagawa become friends, and maybe more, despite their differences (and probably because of their shared hatred of one Osamu Dazai).
    It all goes downhill very quickly.
    These are two very different paths that have been chosen. They're intertwined more than anyone knows.
    Or, the one where four lovestruck idiots have to dance around each other and ask their friends for relationship advice while juggling trying not to die and getting screwed over by life.

    Summary

    Izuku narrows his eyes as he stares at the sunset. "You told me to jump off a roof and I did. I don't think I can forget something like that, even if I really tried to." He grumbles.

    Katsuki pauses. He then scoots a little closer to Izuku, eyeing his face curiously. ".. Even if someone brainwashed you?" He questions.

    Izuku glares at him from the corner of his eye. He scoots away. "I will bite you, Katsuki," he says.

    Summary

    "For someone who lived in Dema all her life, you're pretty good at running."

    "It's probably just about the only thing I'm good at."

    Running and lying, she reminded herself.
    Both of things had gotten her to this point in her life, and she didn't know whether or not it was a good or a bad thing. Well, she supposed to herself, being free of Dema and of the Bishops was a good thing, but having to lie to those she was growing close with, well... That was probably the bad thing.

    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

    "What I'm trying to say is that I won't ever be able to understand the pain that you're going through, but I understand the feeling of being so helpless, that you just want to give up. It's so much easier than to keep on fighting; to slip away and never have to deal with the burden that weighs on you… but if you're able to fight back, then why not try and live?"

    Summary

    Thirteen years ago, their parents went missing. The Tsukishima house was left ravaged beyond repair, and all that was left behind were the meaningless numbers pressed into the uncertain palms of a frightened child, and an unfulfilled promise of return.

    Eight years ago, Tsukishima Kei became a victim of child abduction.

    Several years after an incident that scars both the Tsukishima brothers for the remainder of their lives, they are left with only the memories of the morbid past as they learn to overcome their hurdles and trauma through togetherness and self-discovery, though the shadows of the past are never too far behind.

    This story takes place in three timelines:
    Past: Before the incident.
    Concurrent: The incident itself.
    Present: After the incident.

    Contains heavily implied rape, abuse and trauma. Proceed with caution.

     

    Strongly inspired by the movies 'Kidnap' and 'Gardens of the Night'.

    Summary

    Izuku was always there, following after him. Stumbling stubbornly even as Bakugo continuously threw abuse at him. It infuriated him to no end.
    So when did he stop following him? When did he give up? How did he not know? He was right behind him!
    .
    .
    .
    Why didn't he notice the signs until it was too late?

     

    But fate granted him a second chance, and he would be damned if he didn't use it.

    (or the timeline where Izuku jumps off the roof at Bakugo's suggestion, and Bakugo tries to make amens by applying he and Izuku to a team program that allows support course students to become pro-hero's with their partners. Bakugo was never caught by the sludge villain, so all might never meets Izuku.)
