    Summary

    Wei Wuxian is down on his luck.
    He’s probably the only legit medium in the city of Lotus, able to contact all manner of dearly deceased spirits and gaggles of ghosts. Still, he makes his living off of bunk palm readings and crystal ball tricks, and it’s barely enough to keep him going. Wei Wuxian is broke. And, he’s about to be very down on his luck. A plague of suspicious hauntings brings him to the attention of the Bureau of Investigation, but he has no idea how involved in it he will be until he meets…

    Lan Wangji is the youngest detective in the Bureau, with one of the highest closure rates within recent years’ records. He’s sharp and obsessive, which lends well to his work with investigating. The one thing he can’t account for is ghosts, and he’s a constant skeptic when it comes to the question of their presence…that is, until, he meets Wei Wuxian. They’re thrown together by way of crossing paths in an investigation, but after Lan Wangji’s eyes are opened to the fact that his culprit might not be fully of the flesh, he finds Wei Wuxian more indispensable than he ever thought he would.

    Everybody needs a good partner.

    Summary

    Between Sea, Between Stone
    "Being a selkie without their coat is like… is like when the amulet was sitting in the sunlight after Kanjigar died. It's right there, but you can't reach it. It's like… if your books were in the sunlight. They're right there, you remember what they feel like, smell like, what they say inside. Being by the ocean without my skin is like finally getting those books back, but opening those pages to find them blank. It hurts. You'll live, but the pain never quite goes away."

    Summary

    What if it was a fathers love rather than a mothers love?

    Not everything is what it seems, and as always, Harry Potter is right in the middle of the chaos.

    Note: This version, 1.0, has Dumbledore not knowing that Harry is BWL. 2.0 has him knowing.

    Differences are mostly situational until after school starts.

    Summary

    Fantasy AU.  Our world is rebuilding itself from the aftermath of an apocalypse, resulting in a very different order to things.  Angels are gone, the only trace left of them is the planet’s devastation, the lineage they left behind in their Nephilim children, and fables most humans don’t even believe anymore.  That is, until Gabriel is pulled into a war, sending Castiel three countries away to warn them, only to leave him stranded there with no way to get back.
    Castiel finds trouble of his own, trying to steal a spell from a witch.  Cursed, he is forced to find a way back to Gabriel by tagging along with a group of humans.  He does not understand their customs, but he likes them much more than he ever expected.
    Castiel had one job - deliver a message to John Winchester.  Who knew one simple task would take him worlds away, through many challenges, and change his life forever?  Not even Gabriel saw that coming.

    Summary

    In the Austral Confederation of the Sea of Fire, ten years before the events that happened at the End of the World, two friends visited a witch asking for an astral reading. They wanted to know what the stars said about their futures, but they're unable to see just how true the messages are. Perhaps in time, they can look back and realize that they'd been warned about it long ago, but until then, the fight continues, and so does the fire.

    Summary

    Zuko really wants to fix the spirit problem with Aang, but that's kind of hard to do when he keeps getting sucked into another world with not-bending and weirdly concerned adults.

    Todoroki wants to be a hero. He did not sign up to rule a country. No, your actual ruler being missing is not an excuse.

    Or - Chaos in the form of two of my favorite boys and world-switch shenanigans.

    Summary

    “…The modern viewer must remember that prior to the 1960s, soulmark portraits were the ultimate in taboo. But one can see how an artist like Captain Rogers would feel compelled to pick up his sketchbook…

    ...Captain Rogers never did a self-portrait; we can only speculate who his soulmate — or soulmates — might have been."

    Summary

    So, let me get this straight. A little girl becomes a God, decides she's had about enough of this shit, runs off to some non existent universe to make her own world, and ends up fucking everything up. Sound about right?

    Well, you missed the part where the world hinges on her own happiness.

    Or that she's a psychopath.

    Or that conflict is the only way to keep her entertained.

    Summary

    “When she can't sharpen her nails on the people who offend her, at least. Bloodthirsty woman,” Pendrash said grimly. “I suspect that something will have to be done about her eventually, her and a great many others. Twice, Vardok. Twice has the Emperor sustained serious injury at the hands of the Paladins, and the High Houses have taken note. Zarkon is not invulnerable in their eyes anymore.”
    Vardok hissed. “Treason?”
    “Not yet.” Pendrash glared pensively at the scarred surface of the table for a long moment. “No, not quite yet. They are still very wary. He still lives, and he is still powerful, and Haggar stands ready to destroy anyone who threatens either him or herself, and the Houses do not dare make any move just yet... but they know about the bone spear, and that a Paladin can use it.”

    Summary

    Wherein Jack comes to Trenzalore, and stays for quite a long time. If you’re watching The Time of the Doctor, this entire book, all 280-ish years of it, takes place between the scene where the Doctor walks away from Barnable telling him he might leave tomorrow or the next day, and the next scene with Tasha Lem’s voiceover beginning, “And so, to the fields of Trenzalore, came all the Doctor’s enemies.” It’s about one third romance, one third worldbuilding, and one third sequel to the other books in the series - that’s the angst and trauma recovery part - which is to say, not impenetrable if you’re looking for Trenzalore stories and don’t want to read the others. 900 years is a lot of time and I really wanted to see some of it. It does also provide a satisfying resolution to my little trilogy (plus extras), never fear. Sequel to Fire the Crucible and A Long Shadow Cast.

    Updating Mondays and Thursdays.
