    Summary

    "You smell the same," he slurred, giggling against Bruce’s flushed face.

    The Kevlar, the sweat, the faint whiff of cologne that still lingered under his suit, in a secret spot where Bruce the man and the Bat met. It was tantalising and comforting, in a way it should’ve not been.
    Jason bathed in the familiarity of that scent ― he was still there, his Bruce.

    From the anon prompt: Unhealthy relationship? Like, sex is the only way they can connect with each other without all the blood and violence.

    Terry Silver never planned falling in love. He planned on consciously, logically, calculatingly choosing to, when it was convenient. Deciding he'd ought to. The very word was distasteful; 𝘍𝘢𝘭𝘭𝘪𝘯𝘨. The uncontrollable, whirlwind act of helplessly thumbing down an endless rabbit hole, unsure where or how one will land or even when such an event will take place. Or with who. And much like all cataclysmic events - much like any enemy surprisingly attacking in an ambush - he figured, if it ever happened, he'd eagerly declare war.

    Summary

    A ragbag of little vignettes, some ridiculously serious or blasphemous, sweet or smutty, but all are wrote four hands with no other link between themselves than being a tribute to Erik and Charles, those men in love, whom Marcel Proust would have called in another place and another time, Charlistes. (That's a codename for gay men in Proust's Remembrance of Things Past, which is a pretty coincidence if we think of it, isn't it?)

    Summary

    Pot pourri de vignettes écrites à quatre mains, qui n'ont pas d'autre lien entre elles que d'être toutes un hommage à Erik et Charles, ces messieurs qui s'aiment et que Marcel Proust aurait appelés en d'autres lieux et à une autre époque des adeptes du Charlisme. (C'est ainsi que dans La Recherche, l'auteur dénomme les homosexuels, ce qui est en soi une trop belle coïncidence, n'est-il pas ?)

    Summary

    Unsure of what perils he was about to face, Chuuya followed on the winding road ahead. Should he even be trusting such an annoyingly charismatic man?

Opportunities like this were as rare as seeing a glimmering comet in the sky and he made a promise to himself to bask in every moment on this new venture.

    Or: Chuuya stumbles upon a universe where everyone forgets their past life and owns flower gardens that enhance their powers

    Summary

    Unconventional relationships can take many forms: some are founded by whimsy, others necessity and convenience. They fade like embers in the night or, fueled by loyalty and emotion, grow into an all-encompassing inferno. When those aren't enough, the most obstinate can still find something to cling to in the ashes.

    Summary

    Обстоятельства собирают бойцов со всего мира, чтобы те спасли мир - и не только свой.

    Этот фанфик был написан в период с 2003 по 2005 годы и является вещью своего времени и места - когда доступ в интернет был не у всех (не у автора так точно), информация бралась из журналов и пересудов во дворах, диск с "профессиональным переводом" был на японском, а Capcom вообще не планировали выпускать продолжения Street Fighter - и пришлось самостоятельно отвечать на вопросы без ответов.

    Summary

    Mary Summers is a sweet nine-year-old girl who’s going through a hard time. She just learned that she’s autistic and doesn’t know how to deal with it. Her parents have started arguing a lot more, kids are bullying her at school, and one day, she discovers her mother’s blog and is horrified by what she sees. Feeling like nobody cares about her, she decides to run away and even leaves a note. But before she can come up with a plan, a mysterious train picks her up and she finds a glowing number 120 on her hand. Plus, every train car has its own world and inhabitants...and she thinks it's the best thing ever. Why would she want to leave when all that’s waiting for her at home are a mother that hates her for being autistic, bullies who want to make her life miserable, and being constantly told she’s not normal? She befriends a talking hamster, Vic, and Blanca, a sentient, shapeshifting marshmallow. They decide to embark on a journey to see what the train has to offer, with Mary intent on reinventing herself and realizing she isn’t just some bothersome girl...but Mary is completely unaware of just how concerned her family and friends are when they see her note.

    A fanmade, original Infinity Train season of my own making.
