    Summary

    Kurapika has spent the better part of his princely life cursed and alone, believing himself to be good at nothing more than killing and striking terror in people's hearts. But when he runs away from home to escape a deadly betrothal and hunt down his family's murderers, he finds that belief challenged every step of the way, especially when he meets three other boys who somehow makes him remember what a home feels like. It is for their safety that he finally sets aside his goals and comes back to the castle, but that decision soon catches him and his friends in a tangle of death and destruction and betrayals, one that he's not sure he'll ever get out alive of.

    However, there is one more thing that he hasn't seen coming, one thing that could very well make all the difference in the world:

    He fell in love.

    [Written for the HxH Big Bang 2021!]

    Summary

    Seventeen-year-old Rapunzel has been locked up in a tower ever since the Plague arose with her birth. When Gothel, the only mother she's ever known, takes her demand for freedom and usefulness much too far, Rapunzel sends a desperate plea to the one person who's kept hope ringing inside of her. Or, the spirit, more like.

    After hearing a plea awfully hard to ignore, Jack Frost, one of the Guardians of Childhood, finds his way to an island he's never heard speak of before. He convinces an indecisive Rapunzel to follow him into the outside world in order to both see her mother's lies for herself, and find the freedom she's always craved to have.

    But when things go awry, the two are forced to team up in order to take down a force that should never have returned. And Rapunzel might just be the key to stop it.

    Summary

    In which the Crown Prince of XianLe ascends for the third time, but he and Hua Cheng are already married. Needless to say, the Heavenly Realm is shocked out of their robes.

    Just in case, major spoiler alert for the entire novel. Some events happened way before their chronological order, and there’s mentions of them here.

    The overall rating of the story is the same of the novel. I rated it E because of some added scenes that will come later (easily skippable if you're not interested)

    Summary

    He was a badge. She was a merc. He was ice. She was fire. Never expected them to fit together like the last two pieces of a fuckin' jigsaw puzzle. Yet, somehow they did. Un-fucking-believable. Samurai, could 'ya pour bleach into my eyes so I don't gotta witness this shit firsthand? Thanks.

    Summary

    Anika Rose is a student at UA, this is the story from her perspective.

    This fic is being written purely for fun as I'm writing it for practice. I want to stay as faithful to the original story as I can with the addition of my self-insert OC. Expect a bit of extra head-cannon-y things in addition to a healthy amount of self-indulgence. So far I'm having a lot of fun imagining how these situations would differ if my OC was a part of UA, as well as how she'd react and what her personal journey would look like. So sit back, relax, and come with me on a journey through a novelized My Hero Academia from the perspective of a whole different character!

    Summary

    Tale as old as time - woman pulls heist, woman loses friends and credibility, woman ends up alone with a Night City Legend erasing her identity and replacing it with his own. Not by my choice, I'd add. Things seemed manageable for V alone until they weren't anymore, and she found herself on a path that put her in front of Detective River Ward. She's thankful she met the badge, and I'm just thankful she waited to fuck him 'til after he changed careers.

    V never fucking listens to me, but maybe this time... it'll turn out better than I'm expecting it to.

    Summary

    As tensions grow and a string of mysterious attacks occur across the land, Kanda struggles to balance his responsibilities as both an exorcist and the sole heir to the throne. But when things begin to get a little more dangerous, he’s forced to step down as an exorcist, focusing entirely on the drudgery of advisor meetings, royal obligations, and a potential (and unwanted) courtship.

    Nothing is ever simple, though. And things get even more complicated when the stable boy he’s fallen for is ripped away from his life, a terrible darkness threatening to destroy them both.

    Summary

    The truth is that that night, three days ago, I was utterly and completely terrified. Because I know Snow: he is a gigantic pain in the ass, he is obnoxious, egocentric and, frankly, rather ignorant, but he is also extremely brave. The burning courage in Snow’s heart is second to no one: I’ve seen him rushing towards dangerous situations since he was eleven. He never backs down, he never gives up.

    So, what happened to him? What was horrific enough to break the Chosen One?

     

    Writer's note:
    This story is my own take on the Carry On series. It is a retelling of the story, only keeping the same settings and the four main characters in the tags. For the rest, the story is a total rewrite of how the seventh and eighth years went, so there are major changes diverging from the original story. Enjoy the ride!

    Summary

    "This is my punishment for tarrying too long with a dh'oine," the man said, laughing bitterly. "If I continue, Eredin will take my left as well, and then my heart— he has corpses preserved in his palace, set with eyes carved of wood and hearts of stone. It amuses him to punish his kidnapped riders so—when their eyes and hearts fall upon another, he takes them from them."

    or,

    Tam Lin, Roveth style.
