    Summary

    The year is 1994. The Iron Curtain has come down, the oligarchs have begun their rise to power, and Kyril Ren, a powerful member of the infamous crime syndicate Solntsevskaya Bratva, has been given a job: hunt down an estranged uncle who has been snitching to the FBI.

    Irena, nicknamed Rey by her adoptive father Luke, is a Krav Maga instructor in New York who has finally been able to obtain her original birth certificate from Russia. Turns out she was born in a little village named Vershinino, but if she wants to know more than that… she’s going to have to go there herself.

     

    TL;DR: What up here's a Russian Mafia AU.

    Summary

    Ever since Carlos was little, he and his daemon have been fans of Dr. Lyra Belacqua. Both as the most groundbreaking experimental theologian of the 20th century, and as the heroine of dozens of fantasy-adventure children's stories (based very loosely on her own mysterious childhood).

    But Lyra's true legacy is still bigger than Carlos ever imagined...until he took a team of scholars to study Rusakov particles in the most theologically interesting community in Hispania Nova. Now his own day-to-day life is full of things like angels, witches, hooded spectres, portals between worlds, vague yet menacing branches of the Magisterium, and a man who walks around without his daemon and can read an alethiometer as easily as a stop sign.

    Summary

    For Carlos, there were many truths.

    It was truth that Night Vale seemed nigh incomprehensible. It didn't follow any of the known rules Carlos had studied all his life. It was infuriating, and fascinating, and dangerous and beautiful, and he was quickly learning that if he wanted to stay here for any amount of time, some of his truths were going to have to adapt.

    A companion to the first year of Welcome to Night Vale, from our favorite scientist's point of view.

    Summary

    In the weeks following the grand opening of Starlight Beacon, the newly titled Jedi master Elzar Mann finds himself returning to the station to research the force. His visions are flaring up, images of mass destruction, jedi falling all around him and an all too familiar voice crying out in pain. Avar Kriss, the woman he had loved since childhood, was on this station leading the jedi base here. She probably had no time for Elzar, and besides, jedi aren't allowed to fall in love.
