    Summary

    Barry knew Lup would absolutely adore Angus, and he ached thinking about how much she would love the domesticity of it all, taking care of just the best kid in the world. It was sad to think he’d finally gotten some piece of that domestic life, and none of it was how it was supposed to be. He and Lup weren’t raising a kid together in a nice home with all of their friends around to help out. Taako was supposed to be the cool uncle who was a bad influence and Magnus was supposed to balance him out by being an excellent influence. Davenport was supposed to teach him important life lessons and Merle was supposed to balance that out by teaching him terrible life lessons.
    Instead of that beautiful fantasy, Barry was in a cave he had haphazardly turned into a home, half-raising a kid who wasn't his to raise, all by himself.
    And yet, he was grateful to be able to do it.

     

    The one where Barry pseudo-adopts Angus before he's recruited into the Bureau.

    Summary

    Inquisitor Taako Taaco.
    Everyone's favorite gay wizard chef.
    Need I say more?

     

    In short, this idea wouldn't stop bothering me. I should not allowed to write this but as they say "be gay, do crimes." Because oh boy, this fic is a crime.

    There are spoilers for the entirety of TAZ Balance (the spoilers start immediately). Technically you don't need to know Dragon Age Inquisition but I don't trust myself to explain well enough...so read at your own risk. Honestly this fic is just very self indulgent.

    Updates will be sporadic as I am an indecisive lil bitch with ADHD

    Summary

    Taako and Kravitz fell in love fast after the Crystal Kingdom, but perhaps it was a bit more complicated than that. When the Story and Song unfurled through the planes, Kravitz remembered his own impossible past. The strange, beautiful realm that spread across the expanse of an asteroid belt. He remembered Taako, and how they’d fallen in love there, too, but it was soft, slow, and in secret.

    It was the 71st cycle of the Stolen Century. The Starblaster crash landed on one of the asteroids of this plane, and the Light of Creation fell far away and out of sight. They must find it before it slips into the wrong hands, before Taako falls too far in love to back out, before the Hunger arrives to destroy them all.

    Summary

    Taako’s life went to shit after his sister disappeared, he can’t take the memories of her that linger in the home they used to share so he moves away to a remote cottage in the woods. There’s definitely nothing weird going on there, his new neighbors aren’t suspicious at all and the forest probably isn’t hiding anything sinister...right?

    Summary

    Barry has known Lup and Taako since kindergarten. He knows how they can be when they want something. Lup wants nothing more than to protect her brother, and Taako- well, let's just say that he's come to the conclusion that Kravitz and Barry are a bad influence on his sister.

    Maybe he's right. But those anomalies aren't going to kill themselves, and someone has to keep the existence of monsters under the wraps.

    Summary

    ...

    Lup looked out of the window at yet another world they couldn’t save. She felt Magnus set a heavy hand on her shoulder as he walked over to look out the same window, even though he could barely make out anything other than the steady pattern of varying depths of darkness broken only by lightning. Taako hung back on the couch across from Lucretia as she wrote down every final detail that she could before they were torn away. He didn’t want to watch; he had seen it enough times already. He knew what it looked like, what it felt like. Merle… wasn’t there. But at least he had the patience that year to have only left them recently. Davenport stood white-knuckled and with gritted teeth at the wheel as always, expertly piloting them out and away from the planet, from the oozing blackness. And Barry held Lup’s hand as they both silently contemplated the Hunger.

    ***

    A deep dive of each year of The Stolen Century, centered around the development of Barry and Lup's relationship as well as the growth as individuals of each member of the IPRE crew. Accompanied by an exploration of the disturbing nature of The Light of Creation and The Hunger, and a century of planets explored.

    Summary

    Lup and the rest of the crew are stationed at a small coastal research facility to investigate a strange patch of unknown magic. It's a pretty sweet gig, all things considered, even if Lup doesn't put much stock into the whole 'mermaids' theory. Things take an ominous turn when they discover that the magic may not be as harmless as they believed - and maybe, the ocean is not as shallow as they think.

    Summary

    Barry doesn't feel pain in this form. Or, he shouldn't. He doesn't have glands, or a brain, in the typical sense, and he definitely doesn't have a heart. Despite all of that, what he's feeling can only be described as heartbreak.
    Lup's gone. His family doesn't remember him, except Lucretia, and she... Well. They're not on speaking terms. And he doesn't even have legs. How can a single malfunctioning robot save the world?
    Of course, none of that means he's giving up. It just means he's got to get creative.

    Summary

    Lup climbs on top of him, her tiny frame frail in comparison to how big he is. She puts the pool cue on his throat and pushes down. He chokes and grabs at the stick to try and pull it off of him. She changes the way she’s sitting so that she can put her knees on either side of it, her whole body weight pushing against his throat.

    -

    It’s three on one. Magnus swings wildly as they surround him, taking hits and giving as good as he gets. Then, finally, he gets one of them back on the ground, and the other two come to help their friend as Magnus slams his head into the concrete. There’s blood pooling around them, the flickering street light reflecting off it.

    -

    Lup and Magnus both have anger issues. The Starblaster is a big ship, but not big enough for all that rage to be a secret.

    Summary

    "Mavis stared out the window of Merle's hippie VW van and popped another lemon Skittle into her mouth, chewing pensively. Beside her, Mookie's voice chattered on and on, asking about what they would find in their new home. Merle occasionally answered noncommittally but mostly drove along content to let Mookie ramble.

    New home—that's something Mavis hadn't been expecting when she got up this morning."

    While their mom's sick at the hospital and they're being shunted between relatives who don't want them, Mavis and Mookie are surprised by Merle showing up and taking them to a home in the country. Together, they rediscover how to be around each other, how to be a family. And if they discover a little magic along the way? Well, the kids aren't complaining.

    Basically, this is a retelling of Ghibli's My Neighbor Totoro in which Mavis is Satsuki, Mookie is Mei, and Merle is their dad (obviously). Other characters to be revealed as the story goes. ;) Technically, this is part of a series, but they're only connected thematically, and this can be read on its own.
