    Summary

    post mortem (in chess): the analyzing of a game by player(s) or spectator(s) after it has concluded to improve understanding and technique for future games.

    Tubbo has nightmares. This is no secret, and no surprise: children made to be soldiers and strategists and spies will have nightmares. It is the way of things.

    These dreams are haunting, all-consuming, and from them he wakes with a heart pounding like a drum, fear rippling throughout his entire being. They are memories, dragged up from the depths to torment him every night, and for a long while, Tubbo would forgo sleep altogether to avoid them.

    On some nights, though?

    On some nights, Tubbo’s nightmares give way to something far, far worse.

    On some nights, there is Dream.

    Summary

    He told Mr. Freeman (who he’s been hearing about for years) that it was instinct. In a sense, it is. Instinct isn’t what’s making him aim so well, but it is what’s making him make his aim so good. It’s deep rooted in his mind, something he has known since he was a small child.

    A small child who had held a gun before, who’d fired it only once. He doesn’t like to think about it, so he’s decided it doesn’t count.

    After two years of careful planning, Obi-Wan makes the decision to Fall. It saves the galaxy.

    He becomes a whisper collector, a shadow follower, an echo creator. What is the difference between negotiating and manipulating?
    He is the rebellion, even if there is no true word for it yet.
    Palpatine may think he is the puppeteer, but there's always a bigger fish, and this fish has friends.

    Summary

    Mordin and Shepard forge a strange friendship over late-night talks, chess, and language - which in turn leads them to explore culture, philosophy, and even conspiracy, over time. (An increasingly canon-divergent take on Mass Effect 2 and 3, inspired heavily by linguistics, a more realistic take on trauma, and closer friendships. All fictional languages are true languages, but are still in development!)

    First chapter is a table of contents. (Note: mature-content warning is for violence. No sexual content.)

    Summary

    When Wilbur and Quackity's lives fall apart they fall together. Funny how that happens.

    Disclaimer: This is not the actual content creators and purely based on the characters. As far as I know both ccs are comfortable with character shipping but I'll take this down if they say anything different.

    Chapter titles are based on the works of Edward Hopper for any of you art nerds out there.

    Summary

    " You and the Devil sit down for a game of chess. If he wins, he takes your soul. If you win, you take control of Hell. As the Devil prepares his first move, he simply smiles and knocks over his king. “You win.”
    -writing.prompt.s
    -------------

    “So,” you played off, resisting the urge to clear your throat, “We play Chess and you kill me if I lose Mr. Death, sir?” 

    “Are you so eager to die you make up rules so swiftly? My, my, you are rather fascinating,” he said with wide eyes.

    Under your breath, you muttered: Of course it takes me going to Hell to get at least one decent compliment.

    Summary

    “-and now I’ve got you, you, following me through this hotel for no goddamn reason. So why in God’s name are you here? Why the fuck are you even in Paris?”

    It's more of a demand and less of a question.

    Dream stares at him for a moment, in a sharp purgatory between incredulous disbelief and genuine confusion.

    “For you,” Dream answers finally, caution prevalent for the first time since they’ve been reunited. “I’m here for you.”

    George is a chess prodigy saddled with unhealthy habits and a ex-lover, Dream, who won't let their connection die. So the pieces are pulled out, the board set, and they begin again.
