    Summary

    Some people choose to tread carefully and partake in honest discussion to get their friends to accept help. Other people choose to secretly engage in a two-year war of attrition against the very concept of an ascetic lifestyle.

    Summary

    Haru thought of her own room, pristine and well-decorated. She liked her rococo furniture, her airy patio and the charming pastoral paintings hanging on the walls. She wondered what would have happened if her tastes hadn’t ended up aligning with what young ladies of money and status were encouraged to like. She wondered what would happen if she uprooted the primroses and pansies from the pots on her patio and planted wild climbing vines instead, roses that hadn’t had the sharp thorns bred out of them, bushes of cooking herbs, planters of hemlock and nightshade.

    [ In which Haru talks to a father, and Sojiro talks to a daughter. ]

    Summary

    "She has her beauty, Mother says. If she just behaves herself, the world could be theirs, and hers too. So sit up straight, Rinea, and sip your tea with one pinky out, and dance the right way with tiny steps and no passion at all, and never, ever talk back to your elders and betters. Rinea strives to reshape and mold herself into the daughter they want, one who smiles and curtsies prettily. One who doesn't spend time out in the garden digging in the dirt, or baking with the servants, or learning white magic to heal injured baby birds. One who doesn't flush when pretty maids pass her by, one who will secure a high-ranking noble husband. That's all they want for her, and eventually, Rinea fools herself into thinking that's what she wants too. At age sixteen, Rinea is ushered from her garden, and she goes to a ball, with an invitation her parents fought and schemed to secure. And against all odds, the most noble suitor of all takes interest. Is it any wonder things turned out the way they did?"

    She's always been known for her boundless love. But now it's time for Rinea to learn how to love the subject she finds most difficult of all - herself.

    Warning for emotional abuse. Not a Berkut-friendly fic.

    Summary

    Nothing but this, the whole summer, just the two of them; Akira taking a well-deserved break, and Ryuji running from his failures.

    That’s always been something he’s been good at, at least. Good to see nothing’s changed.

    Summary

    Basically me trying to answer the question, "What if the P4 Protagonist was one of Akira's available Confidants?" in a manner befitting other Confidant narratives. Ships will be minor, probably.

    Akira hadn’t been planning on picking up any animals when he first came to Tokyo, but of course, Morgana had other ideas, and now he’s stranded with an annoying not-cat to take care of and no clue what he’s doing. Luckily for him, a short exploration of Shibuya’s business district leads him to the front stoop of an eccentric-looking pet shop.

    Summary

    It probably wasn’t the most opportune time, but it was also the only time they had, so Gwen asked him about it halfway down the elevator shaft into Fisk Tower’s secret lab. Noir was leading the way, moving gracefully and monochromatically from elevator shaft to heating vent, Peter Porker in his wake.
     
    “Does she know?” Gwen hissed, knowing his mind—like hers—was still back in the dining room. “Your version.”

    “What?” Peter hissed back. “Know what?”

    “You know,” Gwen gestured from him to herself, crawling on finger- and toe-tip directly down a vertical concrete wall. “This.”

    “Oh,” said Peter. “Yeah, she knows.” He was smiling behind his mask, she could tell from his voice. “She's always known.”

    “Oh,” Gwen said. “Good.”

    Summary

    There wasn’t a rule, exactly, that said that Ritsu wasn’t allowed to spend time with his brother. It was just something that was understood, like how Ritsu understood he wasn't supposed to press his hands along the sharp edges of his mother’s kitchen knives.

    (or: an age swap where only Mob and Reigen's ages are changed. Shigeo asks his little brother if he wants to walk him home after school. Ritsu should say no. Ritsu does not say no.)

    Summary

    Midnight stares at the mousepads with her chest as cushions, lip curling. Mount Lady looks at the body pillows with her face plastered on it, torn costume over her skin, fists clenching. Uwabami flips through the magazine spreads, her body curved unnaturally, eyes fluttering shut.

    No one tells this to girls. No one tells them this side of being a pro hero, when you’re a lady.

    Summary

    They’re the broken ones. That’s what Clint figures the rest think about him and Barnes. Clint with his eardrums trashed, Barnes with a regiment’s worth of trauma and a psychotic cybernetic arm, put in the same room and told to make nice while the others get to go on missions and do important things and save the world.

    Well they're not broken. So of course they got bored and tired of being sidelined and decided to entertain themselves. And of course they ended up wanted, running through the streets of Paris with bananas down their pants and gendarmes in pursuit. Of course they did.

    Summary

    Prevent the Fell Dragon’s awakening before Ylisse is subjugated by the power of True Evil, and bring peace to the world. Simple enough, for a hero!

    Well, that’s how it’s supposed to go. Then her mother’s suffering from a broken heart, her other mother doesn’t even know Cynthia’s her daughter, her sister’s going to take her frustration out on the next poor sap to cross her path, and the tales to be told of her to future generations are morphing from epics to comedies right before Cynthia's eyes.

    Looks like she and Severa will have to save their future in more ways than one.
