    Summary

    [Opis całej historii]
    Kiedy Morana pojawiła się w Hogwarcie, nikt nie miał wątpliwości, że wszystko jest w porządku. Tylko Severus Snape swoim instynktem byłego śmierciożercy wyczuł wiszący nad nią cień, ale nawet on zignorował ostrzeżenie, poddając się czemuś, czego nawet nie chciał zrozumieć. Choć uparty głos nieustannie go ostrzegał, nie dopuszczał do siebie wątpliwości tak długo, aż w końcu było już za późno.

    W czasach długo wyczekiwanego spokoju mrok zawisł nad Anglią, doprowadzając do wydarzeń, które zmieniły więcej, niż ktokolwiek mógł przypuszczać. Bo właśnie wtedy, gdy czarodziejski świat łapał oddech po upadku Czarnego Pana, w ciszy, zupełnie nieoczekiwanie, zbudziły się najgorsze demony.

    Demony, które nosimy w sobie.

    Summary

    The woods are a humid, dark place. Things unnamed lurk in its shadow, basking in ancient magic, and not all of them are benign.
    The woods are no place to wander. And yet, she finds herself under its cover when luck forsakes her.

    A fantasy AU no one asked for and no one needs, but maybe one you'll like.

    Summary

    "We all have our own battles to fight, Mingyu-sshi. The question is, for what are you fighting for..." He paused, averting his eyes to another person who was approaching them, “Or for who?” he said in a softer voice like he was letting Mingyu in a secret, a secret he might even bring to his grave.

     

    (or a Supernatural/Fantasy AU inspired by Fate/Stay Night that no one asked for. Legends and myths are real. There are worlds beyond our world. Humans aren’t the only race living here on earth. There are fights between races every 1500 years to claim the "Holy Grail". This time, which race will be the victor to make their wish come true? Oh, and Seventeen will be fighting each other.)

    Summary

    “The chance which now seems lost may present itself at the last moment.”
    ― Jules Verne, Around the World in Eighty Days

    She had always thought that as long as she avoided trouble, things would get better for her and her grieving mother. Four years after the loss of her father, and a year since she came back to Japan - Artemis sticks to her books, her tapes and her two close friends, her life couldn't be any more mundane. However when finally taking the time to go through her father's things that had been recovered from the ship at sea, she finds what seemed to be a letter addressing her. To her horror, her father didn't simply disappear as authorities had her and her mother believe back in 1983. But instead, was murdered by a monster named Dio when discovering his coffin. The same Dio that had cursed the Joestar bloodline. That point forward, Artemis is driven to hunt down the man and get revenge for her family. Along the way, as they face Stand users that represent different cards of the Tarot. Artemis must also make a choice between two of the boys before they face Dio in Egypt.

    Summary

    Nathaniel watches the boys pop out of the pits they dug, wondering if their foxholes provide shelter from the burning sun. Nathaniel felt the heat of the dirt through his shoe soles like asphalt. He knew he didn’t have eighteen months here, or anywhere, and Romero knew it too. Shooting fish in a barrel. Nathaniel curled his toes to redirect the restlessness pooling in his feet and looked out to the horizon.

    Summary

    Wendy Dawson was weird, some people even called her crazy. She knew things, things she couldn't possibly know unless she was peeping through bushes. She spoke more but said less in that eerie way of hers that half the people in town thought she was on some kind of drug. Wendy Dawson was weird. There was no doubt about it.

    Summary

    Jon frowned, seemingly unsatisfied by Martin’s answer. "Which do you think is the truth?"

    "Pardon?"

    "About her motive. Why would she take the elixir of immortality?" Jon seemed particularly troubled by this, surprising Martin. "Was she really so selfish as to leave him behind?"

    "I don't think she would leave him on purpose," Martin said, smiling fondly at Jon. "She loved him. You don't just leave those you love without good reason."

    or

    I rewatched Over the Moon and got sad about Chang'e and Hou Yi again and decided to project that onto Jon and Martin

    Summary

    Alastor thought he had it all worked out.

    Yes, there had been a few hiccups in his ultimate plan and sure, not everything had turned out the way he had envisioned it… but those were just minor setbacks! Nothing serious! Nothing that could possibly get in the way of his darling Charlie’s certain ascension to Heaven!

    Right…?

    Summary

    I don’t dislike investing my energy evaluating myself and the ones that surround me. In fact, I live for the unpredictability. Observing life is one of my many passions. But as interesting as being the voyeur on sex instances can be, being the pain-inflictor is just as exciting.
    Between us, this is not my first and last meddling with human's issues.
    For them, I’m only a newcomer in Red Grave City. I’m fresh meat in this wolf's lair, a less-than-average person you could inquire. Came from nothing and will probably end a nobody in some eyes.
    Opinions aside, I do intend to take a long break. A vacation, I might tell the inquisitor. I’m putting on hold my side-job as Guardian of Dimensions, “Hell” per say. You're welcome.
    Now go! Resume your relentless life of fear, in addition of this deity barging your doors with a sucker punch, just for fun, the ever obnoxious me.
    Blessed be the devils that can finally roam free from The Bottomless Pit and take a fresh air. It does get crowded there. All I’m saying is I’m creating more employment than your pitiful government. 'Cause someone will need to clean the inevitable mess of my next mischiefs. And It won’t be me, noble witnesses. So Let’s rock, shall we?

    Summary

    “Ugh, this city,” scowls Keith, wiping his shoe off the concrete after he’d stepped into something nasty.

    “This city,” comes an awed whisper from Lance, gazing at the lifeless concrete buildings scattered around the warehouse district. His giddiness was the kind only non-human creatures could have for the mindless cogs in human society. Their warehouses, their storage facilities, the houses for their dead things- their technology.

    Summary

    One moment, she had been picking her own forget-me-not, and the next she saw Claire pressing her hands to the center stone, the tallest one, and disappear, as if falling through solid rock as a ghost. Elizabeth should have run for the car. She should have sped back to the village to tell the authorities, but she hadn’t thought of the consequences when following Claire’s actions. Elizabeth, with her pale hair whipping about her face, pressed her own palms to the center stone, and felt the world fade to black, as the roar of the wind rang in her ears, and the ground fell out from under her feet.

    Nothing could accurately describe the experience of falling through time.

    Summary

    In the oncoming threat of a calamity, the Greater Magic will respond. No matter where, even if the calamity is far from its influence, it will respond. Gandalf knows this. Elrond knows this. Galadriel, Thranduil, and Saruman know this.

    But those who know the legend expected something more. Something that wasn’t a redheaded spearman who seemed to be just a Man.

    Aka: Li has one goal and that’s to fight a dragon. He did not count on having to protect a bunch of Dwarves in the process.
