    Summary

    The owner doesn’t lower that judgmental eyebrow, and Ritsu just shrugs, staring at the floor. The blush of roses—innocent pink and sinful scarlet—scream at him with open mouths, blooming too ripe, too soon, close to death. Too obvious.

    Summary

    Nobody ever thought quirkless, weak, weird Midoriya Izuku was dangerous.
    This perception carried over to his first year high school class, because really despite the super strength Midoriya didn't have it in him to be dangerous.

    That was their first mistake. And the one that would see them fall.

    Summary

    Where does technology end and magic begin? Kaiba thought he needed a duel. Atem thought he needed to help Kaiba accept the inevitable. But neither stopped to ask themselves what “closure” means in a world where wish fulfillment is possible. And both forgot that when you chase after something so desperately, you run the risk of losing sight of just what it is that you’re longing for. Set at the end of the Yu-Gi-Oh! movie, Dark Side of Dimensions, but the story stands on its own.

    Summary

    “I’m taking a break from work, thought I’d drop by Henrietta for a week or two,” Adam muttered, tapping his fingers against his knees like he used to on Ronan’s thigh under cafeteria tables, “And it’s been too long since I’ve been home.”

    Please don’t this to me, Ronan prayed to the peeling ceiling paint.

    Ronan agreed, grunting as he stole a bite of pie off Adam’s plate after snatching Adam’s fork. Eleven years was a whole lifetime of being apart, a torturous wound as deep as the distance that separated Adam Parrish from Ronan Lynch.

    (Ronan has been a harbouring a crush on the employee of his mother's bakery for years.

    Eleven years later, he returns, causing Ronan's life that he built with an Adam Parrish shaped hole to collapse.)

    Summary

    The Doctor and Missy walk into a diner.

    What Happens Next May Shock You.


    "Thank you,” Missy says at last, though the Doctor can’t be sure what she’s responding to. “This will be a happy memory.” She swings their clasped hands between them like they’re much younger than they are. “You’re very wise, Doctor; thank you. And thank you for more than that.”

     

     

    "Well," the Doctor says, blushing somewhat under her praise, "950 years has to count for something in the wisdom department, I'd hope."

    Selfishly, Missy wants to press him to her, lace their fingers together. Instead, she ponders what he said to her. “You’re my present,” she says eventually, with a small twitter at the double meaning. Just now she has, as best she can, laid two souls to rest."

    Summary

    “Billy.” She repeated smartly. “I imagine this is a lot, to suddenly see your father in an hospital bed. It can be quite shocking.”
    “You said somethin’ ‘bout an illness.” He interrupted her.
    “He was diagnosed with Alzheimer five years ago.” Layla looked confused. “You didn’t know?”
    Billy shook his head. “Haven’t talked to him in eight years.” He revealed to her.
    Her eyes widened slightly. Looked at Billy’s expression, then at the man lying down on the hospital bed. “I feel like you had a good reason not to.” Layla added. “But at this time even specialized care won’t take him. He’s too far gone his illness and needs a familiar face around to help him settle at the bad times.” She paused, looked at him. “We are as of now discharging him into your care. You are legally obligated to take him, honey.”
    He felt fear as an electrical shock from the floor up through his whole body, inside every single one of his bones. “Is he going to recognize me?”
    Layla pondered. “Maybe. Maybe not. It varies. He may also recognize you in one minute and remember nothing on the other.” Was her answer. “Alzheimer is a very fickle thing.”
    Billy just nodded, turning to her. “Where do I sign?”

    Summary

    Everyone with a soulmate had heard the warnings of what was called Maze Mind. It was a natural occurrence that happened between two halves; some kind of test of the bond from the universe. Strong bonds tended to have simple mazes, as it wasn’t hard to find each other and solidify the bond. The weaker the link, the more complicated the maze.

    And Jimin was looking at the king of all mazes.

    Summary

    Quartz is the second most common mineral in Earth's continental crust. It is called by the name 'Amethyst' when it is purple, 'Citrine' when it is yellow, 'Prasiolite' when green, and 'Chalcedony' when found mixed with moganite. It comes in almost every colour, and is not particularly expensive.

    It holds magical power most easily, and there is no other variety of gemstone that can be so useful as a magical battery. Indeed, ancient quartz pieces are the cause of the most muggle deaths upon being tampered with, giving forth huge bursts of uncontrolled magical energy, usually in elemental form. We can appreciate the dichotomy of this, and perhaps take a lesson from it: that the most common of gems can, truly, be a diamond in the rough.
