    Summary

    (Hermione closed her eyes, and she thought she could remember something- a flash of green light, someone screaming. A cold hand, a white hot burst of pain.

    A baby was crying.

    She opened her eyes.)

    AU. The Wizarding World might have forgotten their mudblood Girl Who Lived and left her in an orphanage for 10 years without any knowledge of magic, but Hermione is determined to succeed, to show them what she is capable of. Of course, being sorted into Slytherin doesn't help matters much.
    (GWL, Chosen one!Hermione Granger)

    Summary

    Tom Bertram meets Fanny Price in Portsmouth and is shocked by the state of poverty and neglect in which the delicate young lady lives. So he makes the rash decision to marry her and bring her back to Mansfield with him as his wife.

    After all, what good is having a clergyman for a brother if you can't get married when you want to?

    But Tom never stopped to wonder if Fanny would be welcomed in her new home, or if he'd be responsible enough to look after her (he's not).

    And when Tom suddenly falls gravely ill, Mary Crawford (who isn't even betrothed to Edmund yet) begins planning her future as Mistress of Mansfield, unthinkingly displacing Fanny, who she considers all but a widow already.

    It's most certainly not the fairy-tale ending Fanny or Tom envisioned for themselves.

    With the looming fear of an uncertain future for his wife, Tom realises he needs to put away childish things for good and become a man worthy of inheriting Mansfield at long last.

    Summary

    ~Warm blood trickled down her shoulder while shielding him. There were spots onto the ground. Head hanging low from the recoil of agony, she didn't stumble. Just gritted her teeth to bear the pain.

    The man froze. His eyes widened the slightest bit. "Well that was a stupid idea."~

    Satoko Takashi is a 20 year old woman, who happens to be quirkless. Living in poverty and on dangerous streets, she was abandoned as a young child. As if it were fate, she came across Dabi, whom she shielded from danger.

    One thing’s for sure, Dabi is persistent to get her to join the League of Villains. But Satoko has something about her.
    She has a deep hatred for heroes and villains.
    You may look at Satoko as Y/N to put yourself in her shoes. We do our best to try to portray each character as they should like in the manga. If this story becomes popular enough, maybe, just MAYBE I might make it into a comic.

    Updates: I'll try to daily!

    Summary

    Ajax "Jax" Radziewicz has been floating through life, not really conscious of where he was going or what he was doing. For a long time, being alive and mostly free was enough for him. All it took was one look in the mirror and it all came crashing down around him. Throwing himself headfirst into the roiling, growing dark mass of turmoil he'd been nurturing inside of him since he was eight years old, Jax finds himself overwhelmed and unable to process any of it. In an attempt to return to the peaceful oblivion he'd grown used to, he attempts suicide, only to fail. Now left to pick up what's left of himself and try to figure out where to go from here, if it's even worth it to go anywhere from here, the high school he attends assigns him one of his fellow students as something of a therapist.

    But Jax has never been a talker. He's been an action man since the start. And the only way he can get the truth out is over time, by recording it on his phone. Find here the recordings detailing Jax's gradual recovery from his lowest of lows.

    Aizawa x Reader, kind of dark, very depressing, murder and stuff, with many flashbacks. Some smut, but not a lot of it.
