    Summary

    After a life-changing accident, that leaves him with mental as well as physical wounds, medical student Jaemin intends to live a life free of drama and love. Unfortunately, he must share a room with Lee Jeno—former famous child actor, most desired man at the university, and the quiet kid he once knew in elementary school.

    While Jaemin tries to keep Jeno at a distance, their paths keep crossing as life connects them through a shared death, family, and the past.

    Amidst the chaos in which they soon find themselves, they become each other's biggest support and find their right path. And, eventually, they fall in love.

    Summary

    Red has lived with his brother, Edge, for years at their newest foster home. He's made a few friends, ones he sees on the regular. And he's told Undyne and Alphys that they can bring over friends of their own anytime they want. They'd never taken him up on that offer before.

    Now, Alphys comes over with a new friend. His name is Sans.

    He's weird. Red doesn't mind, but when Sans runs out in the middle of movie night it raises some red flags. Is Sans okay? Probably not. But is it Red's place to care?

    VERY alternate of an AU: Monsters were never Underground, and the social dynamics are totally different. It's literally so AU it's practically an original work with the same characters. Oops.

    If you came here from my other fic, One Step Back, this is NOTHING LIKE THAT ONE. Well, maybe a little, but not enough for that to be a good comparison for whether you'll like this or not. This one gets darker. A lot darker.

    Summary

    "Hello, Chris," sings a honeyed voice from behind.

    Chris' attention snaps toward the intruder, his gun already out of its' holster and aimed at whoever it is — a boy, apparently, with braided russet hair, a red jacket, and wise eyes. He's wearing a gas mask, but Chris can tell by the way his eyes crinkle around the edges, the way sun-burnt sand swirls in his irises, that he's smiling.

    Chris cocks his gun.

    "You killed my father," he says.

    "No offence, but he totally deserved it," the stranger agrees with cheerful solemnity.

    "What the hell are you doing in my home?" Chris demands. The kid is perched on a windowsill in Chris' office, as nonchalantly as if this were something he did every day, as if they were familiar.

    "I was just wondering," the kid speaks softly, fond amusement sewn through with a peculiar resignation, "how you'd feel about putting down some nazis?"

    [Or: The one where Stiles goes back in time and subsequently fucks with everything.]

    Summary

    Loki makes a split second decision that changes everything. Little by little he finds his place in the universe, and Mobius’ arms, as he slowly learns that he is worthy of love. Well, with some help from the friends he meets along the way.

    This can technically be read alone, but I do strongly recommend reading Love, and Other Lies first.

    Summary

    Поттер даже не оглянулся, прежде чем его растрёпанные чёрные волосы исчезли среди толпы, втекающей в лифты.

    Драко провёл ногтями по макушке, вибрируя от едва сдерживаемой злобы и кипящих эмоций, которые заставляли его чувствовать себя плохо в собственном теле. Если Поттер собирается придерживаться такого поведения и дальше...

    Всё будет куда сложнее, чем Драко ожидал.

    Summary

    Since being stranded here, I have concluded the following: 1. I’ve been in a dust storm for several sols. 2. Shit. I suppose I’ll just have to think of something. Or die. Nicky, my love wherever you are, remember how we always joked that I was the very lowest ranked member of the crew, and that I would only be 'in command' if I were the only one left?

    Well I'm in command now.

    or;

    katsuki's hatred for izuku runs deeper than anyone would ever realize and for all of the wrong reasons.

    ch 23: katsuki is fine with pretending everything is fine. even with his reoccuring feelings of pressure pushing him into the ground with every breath, if he just nodded his way through the motions it would all be over soon enough, right? well, that fucking worked until the possibility of his mom going to jail was brought to head and everything went to fucking shit.

    !!!new ch 24: katsuki doesn't know how he's supposed to process his situation, but he thinks he has a handle on it, until he realizes that it's still not over, his mom has a very high chance of going to jail, he may get kicked out of school, and he's going to be known as the freak on meds whether he stays at UA or not. he tried to keep up appearances as best as he could, but as soon as he's out of watchful eyes, he starts to crash until someone intervenes-- for better or for worse.

The question is can he be stopped, and what will happen when one of the most respected superheroes finds himself falling head over heels to kneel before a serpent? Will he turn against his family, both blood and built, to be with his love, let their fiery passion die out, or sacrifice more than blood sweat and tears to try and bring The King to the surface for good?
