    Summary

    The adults are always saying your teenage years are the best. They’re delusional.
    First Lydia is nearly poisoned by corned beef, then dementors surround the supposedly safe school. After that, Lydia accidentally (okay not so accidentally) overworks herself to the point of an intervention, has to leave school (and right after returning from getting her back sliced open! really, fate?) for America, and when she comes back all her friends are worried for her. That’s not even mentioning the werewolf-professor and loose murderer situation!

    So yeah. Thirteen fucking sucks.

    Summary

    After his mother's death, Ryan accepts the offer to rule hell with Dallon.

    Everything is a paradise there- until the servants get restless, and Dallon's life is ripped apart.

    Brendon only stole food for his starving family; he doesn't think he deserves to be in hell, let alone be one of the new kings' servants. Every glance he sneaks at the two of them kissing only makes him miss his own family more, waves of jealousy crashing over him.

    But even though he's angry, he definitely doesn't condone what the other servants are doing to the new kings.

    Summary

    How he managed to become friends with a Ghost, Princess and Formling he'll never know. But, without them, he doesn't know what he'd do. Together, the four of them have their own issues. With two of them being filled with anger against Ninjago, another one who wants to protect Ninjago and the other from a entirely different realm, you could say they have slightly different opinions.

    As opposite views and betrayal begin to ruin their new family, Lloyd's other family and the return of the Oni complicate matters further.

    (Takes place after Lloyd defeated the Overlord for the first time, so it's a few months after season 2)

    Summary

    Under the searing sun of the summer of ‘96, you led way through old street roads that Erwin was a stranger to.

    You were patient with him, and you were keeping pace with him, and your grip was neither chafing nor bruising. But you were messy with the sticky feeling of oranges, and cheap Crayola crayons, with a too-big shirt and choppy, uneven hair that somehow suited you. Every motion you created was an animated picture, and it made him want to follow your every move, a dance of two.

    And then, you left.

    Told in a series of drabbles.

    Summary

    A tragic, redemptive story of two men who shouldn't be together for so many reasons, but are drawn to each other regardless. Francis Moore, the doctor of a small town in Georgia and patriarch of a nuclear family, who hides a tragic past and heart he can never express. The other is his patient, Damian Glass: precocious, successful, cold, and an executive at a major technology firm that's using the Doctor's small town as a test site for experimental tech. Intertwined through devious machinations and basic instinct, they'll have to navigate the waters of what they can live with... and what they can't live without.

    or: a hot sociopath stalks a seemingly nice married daddy doc with a dark past. shenanigans ensue.

    Summary

    Wizards were dependant on Muggles. That was a truth that Petunia was brought up with. Eileen Snape was the one who taught it to her through potions and ancient runes. In the little house on Spinner's End, there were things that needed magic and things that did not. Potions did not.

    A look at Petunia's teenage and young adult years, from a simple apprentice to Mrs. Dursley through the lens of the first war against Voldemort. All to answer the question "How does someone belong in a world that is inherently against them."
