    Summary

    You have a not-especially-vested interest in not bringing up the Emperor’s dead Hands, those who betrayed him (at least half) and those he preferred to you (probably all, you anemic milk-slick, you eclipse-shadow of greatness). Your position is precarious. You are intimately goddamn aware of it.

    But at least you have the same old advantages as always: in the deep and twisty vessel of you there is not one scruple nor drop of shame. And you are accustomed to being the overlooked sister.

    --

    John and Ianthe deal with the fact that his only remaining Lyctor is the one he never liked much. Maybe they can bond over the fact that they're both egotistical manipulators who lie like breathing? No?

    Also, God sees ghosts. Ianthe doesn't help.

    Summary

    “In dreams,” Shimano deigns to explain, “it’s much harder to lie. The subject brings his own fuckin’ baggage to the table. Gives you a pretty list of all his vulnerabilities, his pressure points. Where do ya gotta push to get ‘em to hand over what he owes?”
    “The kneecaps, usually.”

    Dreamshare comes to the yakuza in 1994. Majima can think of about eleven ways this could blow up in the Tojo Clan’s face.

    Summary

    "The truth poured on her like a deluge, seeping into her mind, filling in each crack of doubt and unearthing every root of denial. She never felt so hollow, and now she knew why.

    She was alone."

    What if Spinel was a lot less competent, and after failing to steal an injector or a rejuvenator, finds herself at the wrong address to boot? Instead of savior of the galaxy, the homicidal pink gem finds herself tied to the depressed, self-destructive human, Dusty?

    (Not a self-insert or reader surrogate fic. I wanted to explore the idea of instead of Spinel finding comfort and healing in another just as damaged as her — a la Pink Pearl — she found someone whose broken edges were a little more sharp. There’s no smut in this whatsoever and never will be. Sex will be mentioned and referenced, but never detailed.)

    Summary

    Time does not slow as her hands close around Catra’s wrists, still inches from her chest. There is only the honeyed ease of it, like plucking a fruit from the vine, or a note from a string. Slayer reflexes, she realizes.

    What dissipates then instead of heat is an entire childhood of evenly matched competition; is last week when they wrestled here on this very grass and had gotten tired and laughingly called a truce before either of them could stay on top for more than a minute.

    A Buffy the Vampire Slayer AU. No knowledge of Buffy necessary to read! Expect: high-school and then college-age modern au, Adora acquiring superpowers and fighting the supernatural forces of darkness (but was that really such a good idea?), and high drama right beside the mundane.
