    Summary

    So here's the thing: Merle Dixon is dead as fuck. And as it turns out, Beth Greene is the only one who can see or hear him. Which is weird considering she's never met or even heard of this guy, let alone anyone with the last name Dixon. That's her first problem.

    The second problem? Merle won't leave her alone. He insists that he will literally haunt her entire family if she doesn't help him resolve some kind of weird conflict concerning his death. And for some reason it concerns his brother, too. So Beth has no choice but to confront and try to convince the living—and extremely stubborn—Daryl Dixon to not only believe her, but also help her.

    Admittedly, she has no idea what she's getting herself into. And who could? A fake psychic's cryptic advice, a bunch of brotherly angst, a mysterious Swamp Witch, a deal with a demon, a battle against time for the fate of two souls, and a shit ton of repressed childhood trauma. Oh, and on top of all that... the relentless Merle Dixon and his ever enlightening commentary.

    Summary

    "Don't leave," Oikawa says, "Please, don't leave."

    Hajime exhales. "You already did."


    Set in a world where your social rating— a score based on others rating you during or after interactions with them— determines everything about your life. Iwaizumi Hajime's best friend abandons him when their initial ratings, given to them at 18, are too far apart. Maybe it'd be an easier grudge to move past if he hadn't been in love with him at the time.

    (Universe inspired by the "Nosedive" episode of Netflix's Black Mirror, no prior knowledge necessary.)

    Summary

    After she realizes that Inuyasha has chosen Kikyo, Kagome returns the Shikon shards to the Sengoku Jidai in the dead of night, and vows she will remain in her time and never return. But there are some choices capable of setting the entire future on a different path. When Kagome wakes up to an entirely new future, only she, with the help of Kikyo (who is now a fixture in her soul), can undo the tragedies to which her single choice gave birth.

    (events take place between Manga chapters 175 and 176)

    Summary

    About to enter his senior year as a business major in college, Tom Riddle is placed in a prestigious internship. But his hopes for entering the business world successfully seem thwarted when he realizes that his supervisor, Hermione Granger, is the woman from his hometown whom he obsessed over as a teenager.

    Written for the Tomione Smut Fest 2020, CEO/assistant prompt.
    “You must be Tom!” Hermione - his supervisor for the next ten weeks - was far too enthusiastic for 8am on a Monday.

    Suppressing a grimace and pasting a smile on his face instead, Tom replied “Yes, I am. Are you Hermione?” The question was mostly for show - he already knew the answer - and when she replied in the affirmative he held out his hand for her to shake.

    Hermione had a firm handshake. Not surprising, but it did nothing to help his unreasonable attraction to her. They locked eyes for just a second beyond the realm of typical social interaction, and then she looked away. Tom thought he saw the faintest of blushes on her cheeks

    Well. He knew what he looked like, and while he might be pleasantly surprised that she was attracted to him, mutual attraction was always dangerous.

    Summary

    No one really knows why they’ve set foot into this room. They can only assume that their bravery has pushed them to seek out a partner for the night, shrugging off their daytime roles and responsibilities to relax in the comfort provided by the touch of strong hands that lead them with a practiced ease, or gentle ones that acquiesce to their every move on the dance floor. Perhaps all these people are acquaintances in the daytime, but now they’re masked and free to take on a different identity, maybe one close to their own.

    Summary

    Vincent knelt down, holding up the kid's t-shirt, and he was level with the bruises. With his son’s kitten nipples, sharp and pink and shadowed with splotched purple. Marked. Bitten, and Vincent pulled the t-shirt down again. He looked up at Ciel’s closed white face.
    ‘What,’ he said, ‘the fuck is this?’
    ‘Nothing,’ said Ciel, again, and he opened his blue eyes wide and wet and fluttering. Faltering.
    ‘Where were you? When I was looking for you?’
    ‘Garage.’ Concrete scuffs, raw on his bare knees.
    ‘With who?’
    ‘Mhhm,’ said Ciel. His little pink mouth was pressed closed. His chin was crumpling. ‘Nobody.’

    People are talking about Vincent's kid.
    Vincent doesn't like it.
    He doesn't like the way Ciel looks at his daddy's grown-up friend, either.

    Summary

    Vera's world ended not with a bang, but with a whimper: the year is 2095, the world in the throes of late-stage climate change. The Earth will keep going, the humans - not so much. As it turns out, the apocalypse is contagious: either that, or she has spectacularly bad luck. Waking up naked on a bloody altar isn't the best introduction to a new place, but you make do with what life hands you. After a rocky start, Vera finds herself in Markarth, trying to make a new home for herself amidst the violence, corruption, and Thalmor zealotry. But just when things are finally settling down - as much as they can in the city of blood and silver - a Nord and a Dunmer roll into town with the mother of all bad deals. Always read the fine print.

    This story starts about a year before the events of the game and will continue through the timeline and the DLCs. This is the first installment. Canon-compliant(ish), but skews towards a lot of original content. Narration is in 3rd person limited; the protagonist is not the Dragonborn.

    Please note: content warnings applied to individual chapters.
    Updates roughly once a week for the foreseeable future.

    With deep gratitude to efmrider for her keen beta-ing eyes and support

    Summary

    “I’m leaving as well, to help take care of my mother since we’ll probably need to let go of her nurses… but I can reach out to the faculty, we’ll find some place for you if it’s needed. There will be several students in a similar position, I presume, and all of the international students as well, maybe the administration can reconsider letting the dorms open or…”

    “Thanks, Professor Gideon, but that really isn’t necessary. I’ll figure something out, there’s no need to involve the faculty.”

    “Ms. Sharpe, it’s not a-“

    “I mean it, Professor. I’ll be fine.”

    Her resigned tone was so different from her usually challenging, infuriating one that it made Sara’s stomach drop. A vague idea started to form in her brain, so ludicrous that she tried to push it down before it took form. She couldn’t possibly… there was just no way, it was the worst-

    “You can stay with me.”, she blurted out, shocking all three of them. It seemed to work as a defibrillator on Ava, because suddenly all the fire was back to her eyes.

    “Are you insane?”

    OR

    Sara and Ava do social distancing together.

    Summary

    edward has something he wants to tell jacob and their relationship changes quickly

    pack dynamics also come into play

    cw: homophobic language and slurs

    i don't know what this story is, it was supposed to be about edward and jacob liking being naked around each other but now it's that plus social commentary on straight men and homophobia! also the irony of straight men doing gay things with each other but still being homophobic is just *chefs kiss* and i exaggerate that here for sure!

    will they become better people? idk i haven't thought that far yet so we'll all see!!!
