    Summary

    "I saw pale kings and princes too, / Pale warriors, death-pale were they all; / They cried—‘La Belle Dame sans Merci / Hath thee in thrall!" -John Keats

    "And as one, they surround her – these thirty-six dead women who she might someday be – and form a human chain around her, their faces so sad, so solemn, so lined with both tenderness and grief.

    "And even as she holds her own hands up to twine her fingers with theirs, Katarina promises: “Then I will make myself worthy of you all, I swear. For you all and for myself, I will survive no matter what devils come for me.”

    This fic is a non-canonical AU take on the universe created by Palhinhaea in Best Laid Plans. Like Palhinhaea’s Katarina, mine starts off with the knowledge that she’s been murdered by men at least three-dozen times before in other lives – and is motivated to do anything she must to prevent that tragedy from happening once again. Even if she must seduce and scheme her way through half the eligible men in Sorcier…

    Summary

    The odyssey of Rachel Gardner, who isn't actually as Quirkless as she once thought and has zero compunctions against using that to get what she wants.

    Being stuck in Japan is a bit more of a hurdle than a death sentence and a high security institution, but she and Zack have dealt with steeper odds, she's pretty sure. Plus Ultra, as they say.

     


    note: while the overall tone is intended to be humorous, this story will involve heavy themes of coming to terms with past abuse, maladaptive coping mechanisms, suicidal ideation, irresponsible divergence from medication schedules, depictions of gratuitous violence and gore, codependency withdrawal, and strong language, among others

    Summary

    Darcy felt that she'd handled accidental timetravel very well. She'd adjusted to the "technology" of the time, the fashion, the slang. Of course, when confronted with mistletoe and her crush...she isn't even sure she can blame timetravel for that, that might just be how her luck works out.
