A magical accident sends Stiles back in time. Now he’s stuck in New York, living with Derek and Laura, and the only way to get back to his own time is to learn to use magic. Meanwhile, he must figure out how much he can tell them about their future. Can he warn them about the dangers they face? Can he change his own past?
And can he trust the creature known as Bookworm, who seems to know him better than he knows himself?
“Why weren’t you at school?” Scott asks concerned. “I wasn’t feeling to good this morning and I threw up last night. Dad let me take the day off” Well it wasn’t exactly a lie he just left the part out where he spent all day in bed with his boyfriend snorting coke off of each other’s chest and smoking pot.
He wanted to be gone. He longed to be high, to be so gone that the sofa looked nonexistent from the sky, but it wasn’t like that anymore. It was just slow burning, black numbness. Dying would be better then this. Maybe that was what he should do, because there was nothing left for him.
Stiles Stilinski is a recovering addict seeking to rehabilitate his public image through a dance reality show. Derek Hale is the professional dancer tasked with getting him through the competition.
Unfortunately it’s harder than Stiles expects: not only is he managing his own illness and press scrutiny, but he needs to act professional around Derek when all he really wants is to climb him like a tree.
Their marriage hadn’t always been this facade - this twisted pack of lies to keep the truth from their friends. Stiles is sure Scott’s been cheating on him for a while. Things can’t get much worse, but they always do.
Red/Blue Dex Entry: A Pokémon that has been overhunted almost to extinction. It can ferry people across the water
OR/AS Dex Entry: People have driven Lapras almost to the point of extinction. In the
evenings, this Pokémon is said to sing plaintively as it seeks what few
others of its kind still remain.
The first and most recent dex entries for Lapras. Its one of my favourite pokemon, but I’ve always found it poignant how it seems to represent dwindling populations of real world cetaceans (whales and dolphins) that have too been hunted to near extinction in the recent past, despite being gentle and intelligent creatures. Anyway, I’d thought I’d do a lil’ biological overview of them (which is in no way canon, just something I wrote based on irl cetaceans and fossil plesiosaurs!)
Lapras are large marine reptilian pokemon, found in polar and sub-polar waters. They are endothermic (warm blooded) with a thick layer of fat for insulation. They feed primarily on fish pokemon, such as remoraid, but also forage on the seafloor for benthic pokemon, such as Krabby, or Shellder. They possess a single horn on their head, used to form and sustain air holes under layers of sea ice. They are extremely long lived pokemon, and adults often have dense encrustations of a small binacle subspecies, only found on Lapras. They are highly intelligent, and have a sophisticated communication with conspecifics (other Lapras) via singing. Lapras travel to warmer, temperate waters to breed and rear young, for example they can be spotted off the coast ot Kalos in the Azure bay. Males sing endlessly during this period in order to compete for females. The calves are born via vivipary (live birth) and are reared in the shallow warm waters until they are mature enough to travel back to colder waters, where food is more abundant. Calves stay in the protection of their mothers for years. Females travel in pods of closely related mothers, aunts, sisters, daughters and grandmothers, whereas males lead a more solitary lifestyle.
Unfortunately, due to their gentle nature, and valuable oils and fats, these Pokemon have been hunted to near extinction, and are classified as a highly endangered species.
Title: Time’s Fool Author: Lunabeegood Word Count: ~79,000 Rating: Mature Status: Complete Summary: After the 2nd Wizarding War, Hermione works as an apprentice at Hogwarts where Severus is still the Potions Master. She performs a time-turner experiment using Severus in the demonstration, and things go horribly wrong. Follow the pair as they arrive in various times, in unfamiliar roles, and try in vain to come back home while learning about each other and their true feelings.
“Bloody stop that!” She snapped as she pried his hands from her person. “I don’t have my wand.”
“Neither do I,” he said with disdain.
“Severus!” A woman called from inside.
“I think that’s my bloody wife,” he said as he looked back toward the room.
“You, married? The horror,” she said in a shocked voice.
If the other Sailor Soldiers were the leads in their own stories:
(Excluding Mina, obviously, because she already has her own story, and Chibi Moon, because it would ultimately be the same kind of story as Moon's)
A slice of life/underdog story about a painfully shy and lonely genius as she follows her dream to becoming Japan's youngest doctor. Dodging bullying from her peers and attempted sabotage by her superiors, it's a story about a loner overcoming isolation and winning in her own quiet way, supported by an ecclectic but excitable background cast. A similar moral to modern interpretations of Cinderella with a sleek 90s shoujo art style like Wedding Peach.
A distant, motivated, powerful and beautiful young shinto priestess is trying to live her own life and achieve her goals of becoming rich, famous and successful, but she has to waste time warding off evil demons, lost spirits and smitten boys. Kind of a cross between Ghost Sweeper Mikami and Mushishi, with a heavy, retro art style similar to Devilman.
A tall, strong schoolgirl is consistently mistaken for a delinquent and accidentally becomes the leader of a bike gang, when all she really wants to do is open a combination florist/bakery. Love confessions are mistaken as challenges for this poor Rambo romantic! A bombastic art style with shounen leanings like Binbougami Ga and Slayers.
A more relaxed and mature approach to time travel combining & contrasting it with the mystery and thriller genres. A shadowy figure cuts through time and space, piecing together mysteries and transplating people into the right places at the right time. Reuniting lovers, averting catastrophes and bridging generations without ever committing her sacred Taboos, the story slowly unravels the central character's past and her own unfixable mistakes. A solid, minimalist art style as per Naoki Urasawa's Monster combined with abstract textures and colouring like Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei.
An unfathomably graceful, rich and beautiful young lady encounters a series of problems she solves by sheer magnitude of her perfection. An affectionate parody of extravagant 70s shoujo manga serving as an elegant counterpart to One-Punch Man, with a style heavily referencing The Rose of Versailles.
Unfettered shoujo romance featuring an androgynous lead whose womanizing tendencies lands her frequently in hot water. Gathering rivals from around the world in racing, classical music and vintage automobile collecting, she must avoid their constant attempts to best her while chasing her elusive and elegant "first love" from so many years ago. Dramedy/romance with a ornamented but dynamic style like Magic Knight Rayearth or Revolutionary Girl Utena.
A slow-paced, Gothic horror/thriller manga centered around a frail and amnesiac girl, who finds herself one day incapable of leaving her family's enormous mansion after one of her father's sinister science experiments goes awry. The house has transformed into a dark maze defying any logic, and she must travel through its endless rooms to try and save him while uncovering their painful past. A visual and directorial approach like a Junji Ito version of Alice in Wonderland.
Thank you. Thanks for breaking my heart. Truly. Thank you for doing something that I was too afraid to do- let you go. Thank you for your infidelity that ended what we had, even though it caused me excruciating pain. Thanks for allowing me to be free so I could do the things I didn’t even know I wanted to do. Thank you for loosening your grip on my heart so that I may have room to fill it with new adventures. Thank you for opening my eyes to the endless opportunities that I didn’t see because of you. Honestly, thank you, because that pain was the best thing that ever happened to me. That pain created a better version of myself without you. The heartache is gone and I have never been as happy with myself as I am now. And for that, I thank you.
Title: In His Rooms Author: Hikorichan Word Count: ~65,000 Rating: Mature Status: Complete Summary: When Hermione Granger is given the opportunity to save Severus Snape, she willingly spins back through time to give him a chance to survive Nagini’s bite. After all, he deserves it. And how hard can it really be?
“That is enough!” shouted Snape, sitting up violently. “How dare you insult me in my own rooms, you little—”
“Mudblood? Is that what you called Lily too?” I spat back.
What little colour there was drained from Severus’s face. He leapt across the space between us and grabbed my arm, yanking me up to my feet and pointing his wand at my throat. I had an odd sense of deja-vu, and my wrist twinged in pain as he tightened his hold on it.
“Ah, so you do like torture like the Carrows,” I said, staring defiantly at him.
Summary: A magical accident sends Stiles back in time. Now he’s
stuck in New York, living with Derek and Laura, and the only way to get
back to his own time is to learn to use magic. Meanwhile, he must figure
out how much he can tell them about their future. Can he warn them

Also there is death in this part, hopefully it will be fixed in the sequel!
She started reading, eyes darting back and forth across the lines of
words. Almost at once, the silent tears started to fall. She reached up
and wiped them from her cheeks with the cuff of her sleeve, not taking
the chance of them dropping onto a page and spoiling the book. Derek
didn’t know what to make of it. When she reached the bottom of the page,
she closed her eyes again and sniffled gently.
“Are you alright?” he asked. “What did you see?”
soul,” she whispered. “Poor little broken soul, surrounded by so much
blood. He hides it all with smiles and laughter, but he’s surrounded by
death and he blames himself. Poor little broken soul.”
She opened her eyes and looked directly at Derek, a fierceness behind the tears.
I’m already hunting down YoI fanfic because I really need it, and I found beautiful things that I’m going to list right here! Like, really, thanks to all those talented, amazing people who started writing OS, mini-long, long and everything for this fandom. Enjoy!
