    Summary

    Everything happens, somewhere in the multiverse. Every choice is reflected and refracted across infinity until the resulting images are unrecognisable — or all too recognisable, when they're wrong in every respect.

    An orphaned boy sculpts himself into a murderer. The most powerful being in the galaxy craves nothing but what little power still eludes him. A woman with the blessings of the gods uses them to devastate the world.

    And there are certain people — still, always — who say no. No more. This is where it ends.

    If not me, then who?

    Summary

    Beautiful, I watch you try
    to see yourself through others’ eyes.
    But mirrors are a losing game —
    they only show you backwards anyway.

    The magic and the misery
    come and go so easily.

    (And when you gaze long into the abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.)


    Usually, when Cypher goes up against Owlman, it's about puncturing the man's mystique — showing everyone what he really is, how fear turns a petty mobster into something untouchable and unstoppable. It's not about risking his life to steal back stolen mystical artifacts, rescuing runaway child assassins, or outsmarting an unknown enemy who seems to know Cypher better than he knows himself.

    Summary

    You would think it would be difficult to accidentally rob a bank! So did I.

    (From a post by Feynites: “I’d like to see John Mulaney play a live action Riddler. But not, like, as any character other than John Mulaney? Just this socially awkward disaster man who somehow becomes a supervillain because of a misunderstanding he couldn’t correct without ‘seeming rude’.”)

    Summary

    Bilbo liked Erebor, he really did. Even if everyone seemed convinced he was going to leave.

    In which soil causes international incidents, Thorin is over-dramatic, and dwarves are rubbish at keeping secrets. Oh, and they build a garden. Eventually.

    Summary

    Two years after Bilbo returned from his adventures, he's made his peace with being back in the Shire. He still wonders what might have happened if things were different, but figures all that is behind him now. A mysterious visitor turns out to be someone he never thought he'd see again, and he's shocked by the news he hears.
