future of archives

whenever life is looking unpleasant I think about the fact that the future holds 8 more stormlight archive books and a total of 30 or more cosmere books and life gets this warm glow about it again

1. It [Kaladin’s original name] was Merin, but it did rhyme with Perrin and Verin. He was actually still using Merin when he was halfway through the first draft of the published WoK. I was totally used to it and thought it was a fine name, but Kaladin is better.

2. Sadeas used to be a guy called Meridas. One of Meridas’s things was wanting to marry Jasnah (and Jasnah did not return the interest). But Sadeas didn’t have that interest. So Meridas became Amaram’s first name instead.

3. Dalinar’s second wife in Prime was one of the craziest things.

4. More of Way of Kings Prime will be revealed eventually, but at this time some elements of it are still spoilers for future books in the Stormlight Archive.

After meeting the brother he believed he had killed many years ago, Hanzo’s already troubled life came crashing down around him once again. Following after Genji in an attempt to make up for his past and, perhaps find a real future, Hanzo finds himself joining up with the newly reforming Overwatch when his brother responds to the recall.

Hanzo doesn’t know what to expect from the strange group of people Genji drags him to meet, some of whom definitely know the brothers’ history. His brother, with the help of several of these new acquaintances, will attempt to drag him kicking and screaming out of the past that had devoured his life, all the while Hanzo finds comfort with a mysterious soldier who seems to understand what it means to regret one’s past. this is all further complicated by a ghostly ex with a grudge .

Edited by a friend and now posted. It’s a little late but I hope people like it. New characters keep coming, some of whom are even important.

When the Sun Kisses the Sea - Geertrui - X-Men: First Class (2011), X-Men (Movies), X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) [Archive of Our Own]
An Archive of Our Own, a project of the Organization for Transformative Works
By Organization for Transformative Works

WRITTEN BY: @geertruis
ART BY: @thacmis

Chapters: 4/8 (updates every friday unless noted otherwise, 36k so far)

Pairings: Charles/Erik

Rating: Mature

Summary:

With every year the schism between the merfolk and the humans of Genosha’s kingdom grows wider, stretched further by the hunting ships and their harpoons that swarm the oceans on only one mission.

Unmarried, Prince Lehnsherr holds little power in rectifying the shattered alliance with the people of the ocean; but when Erik is saved by a creature with eyes as blue as the sea from which he hails, he falls into the murky secrets and hidden past of his palace, uncovers the truth of Genosha’s history, and slowly, steadily, finds his heart isn’t something to hate.

Especially not when it’s treasured by a mermaid like Charles.

Jesus. Stab me through the heart why don’t you? I really enjoyed this. It was really cool to see the way that the pack interacted outside of the “sterek” light while also watching Sterek’s relationship blossom. I also like how the author did the last chapter because I was worried how the ending would play out through texts.

Torch the Stars - 5.7k so far

By Organization for Transformative Works

Fandom: Haikyuu!!
Rating: Mature (rating will probably change in the future)
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Iwaizumi Hajime/Kyoutani Kentarou
Characters: Kentarou, Hajime, Oikawa, Watari, Shigeru, Kunimi, Kindaichi
Additional Tags: Medieval AU, Trans Male Kyoutani, slow burn

Chest heaving, Kentarou snarls, “Why don’t you send down one of your knights to face me? Those geezers could afford to learn somethin’.”

“Very well!” King Tooru’s smarmy grin only broadens as he folds his hands beneath his chin. “Our newest squire is in desperate need of humbling. Would you care to oblige him?”

Sir Hajime grins from where he’s leaning against the castle wall. “As you wish, your Majesty.” It would be my pleasure. It’s unvoiced, but the sentiment’s written plainly on Hajime’s face as he unsheathes his sword.

OR: IwaKyou Medieval AU for my secret Santa exchange. Merry Christmas, @goodfellowes!

Have you ever wondered what’s going to happen when our generation dies out?

I mean… everything we are, for most of us, is spread out across various sites on here.

Are great-grandkids going to be able to look up photos from their grandparents’ first kegger party?

Will descendants be able to trace families trees back through Facebook connections?

Can your nude selfie from 2001 inspire people in the future with that body type? Will it become a vintage instagram/snapchat piece that will be sold at auction many decades after your death under ‘anonymous’… a conversation piece on some new-age technohipster’s wall?

Anthromorphic races of the future looking through old internet archives and mistakenly believing that Earth had known about them long in advance… and were open to the idea of interspecies offspring…

This generation being the turning point for many social issues, ancient blog rants are now published in textbooks as ‘proponents of freedom’… though the author’s true names are never known. Their blog titles are immortal…

Archaeologists of the future using social media sites and fandom sites to determine what kind of peoples we were, the millenials?

-

I have odd thoughts…

…but imagine, one day there will be millions of disembodied, unattached, stagnant FB profiles and blogs floating about the internet… the ones who updated them are gone (to fight in the eternal skeleton war), and their descendants, struggling to find unique usernames to use the interweb.

It will be the last thing left of many, a technological thumbprint that will slowly fade as new technology forces the old into an obsolete format; and then, everything that was will be left floating disembodied as degrading electronic ghosts in the atmosphere… picked up, maybe, by aliens trying to fine-tune their intergalactic GPSs on the way in, as nothing more than static and the faintest hum of ‘Mmm Whatcha Say’.

Emma’s eyes move over the paper as she reads the ads for the open apartments in Storybrooke while she chews on her food. They told her parents two weeks ago they were going to look for their own place, and of course, they both got upset.

They didn’t want them to move out, loving having their family under one roof, but after the other morning, her mother now has a better understanding.
