Chapter 1: Magic // Sugar Daddy
“Jay, you know… I’m not with you because you keep summoning all these nightmarish plagues of biblical proportions, or the constant lurking threat of you bringing down the apocalypse on Gotham through the dark powers of your unholy resurrection. And I’m definitely not with you because you threatened to sacrifice Bruce to Anubis or whatever while you were still a raving nutcase because the way Ra’s brought you back combined explosively with your inherent latent and hitherto unknown magical powers to drive you literally crazy for a while.”

Jason’s still staring at him uncertainly, so Tim rolls his eyes. “I like you, okay?”

Birds of a Feather - Skalidra, firefright - DCU [Archive of Our Own]
A shooting star in Hell's sky can only ever mean one thing, and there's no way Slade is going to stand back and let another Fallen Angel be ripped apart and enslaved by its demonic denizens. Bringing the boy - Jason - back to his sanctuary is easy. Getting him to accept his new status and find the will to live through it, on the other hand... That's a whole other conflict.

fuckin demon fucking
The Gates of Janus are enormous things set into a fence too wide to see the ends of and too tall to climb over. Made of a black stone that burns to the touch, they surround a wide swath of Hell’s territory near the veil between their realm and Purgatory. On either side lie two gates, both open in times of unrest and closed in times of peace -- that is to say, they’re never closed.

How to Get Scientific with Folklore and Legends, Dammit - possession is 9/10ths of the law
LJ is a far darker place than ever I'd realized. Like, there are people hanging out here who voluntarily listen to "Aqualung." And who get all...philosophical and shit. *wary look* At least I know who the troublemakers are now. Freaks.

Since I can't properly smudge my LJ to purify it of that taint, I'm doing the next best thing: updating with a wee bit of archaeological neepage that goes heavy on SPN-related resources. Check this out:

Wild Ambition Fortune's Ice Prefers - Chapter 1 - amberfox17 - Thor (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
When Thor went storming into Jotunheim he was looking to start a fight, but accidently winds up a pawn in Odin and Laufey's plans for a permanent peace between the realms; namely, in exchange for the return of the Casket of Ancient Winters, Laufey is offering his firstborn child Loki, the Aesir-sized sorcerer, in marriage to Thor. Such a momentous decision is not to be taken lightly, so Odin sends Thor to live on Jotunheim - without Mjolnir - for a season with Loki, to get to know his prospective consort and to teach the wilful prince some diplomatic sense. Thor is horrified, his parents are insistent and no-one really knows what Loki is thinking, but he hasn't stopped smiling...
Or, a jotun AU arranged marriage worldbuilding fic, featuring a confused Thor, a manipulative bastard Loki, Jotunheim politics, a slow burn developing relationship and a motley arrangement of characters from Marvel and myth.//

Tapestry - Chapter 1 - Arvensis5 - Marvel Cinematic Universe [Archive of Our Own]
While in prison on Asgard, Frigga devises her own punishment for her wayward son – she bestows upon Loki the curse of watching the different pathways of what might have been during the attack on Midgard. In one thread, he accepted the drink from Stark. In another, Stark saved him from death. In every thread, the infuriating mortal captures Loki's attention. Now, every time he closes his eyes, Loki walks the threads of fate that never were and that never will be, and in doing so, he must learn from the past to find the future that Frigga has already foretold from the tapestry of fate.//

The threads stop when Frigga dies, but it turns out she was prepared for that and spoke to Tony in secret.

When Lightning Meets the Ground - Chapter 1 - Skalidra - DCU (Comics) [Archive of Our Own]
Jason is what people call a 'god-touched'; one gifted power by a god and sworn to their service. Dick is one of the fae, with lightning at his fingertips and running through his veins, not that Jason is told any of that when he's set to hunt Dick down and kill him. It's only once they meet that Jason considers any course of action apart from following the orders of his god, and Dick... Well, there's no easier way to sway a fae than with the taste of a god's power.

brother of the Furies (of blood, bullets, and gun smoke) - InfinityIllusion - DCU [Archive of Our Own]
Jason, like most people, has his altar to his patrons. Said patrons just happen to be a little more than most people can handle, but then, there's no kill like overkill, and Jason has always wanted justice (and vengeance).

(Aka: This was supposed to be serious and just took a left turn to crackishness.)

The One Consumed - Zillabird - Batman (Comics) [Archive of Our Own]
Jason is a nature god with too much power and not nearly enough control. A mistake makes his father, King of the Gods, send him to the Underworld for a short period of time to see the consequences of further reckless behavior. There he meets King Richard, ruler of the Underworld and god of the dead, lonely and desperate for affection. But nature gods weren't meant for darkness and death and soon Jason is eager to return to the surface.

Only Dick might not be ready to let go...

Permanent Resident
Alec is Persephone and just wants to spend a weekend with his boyfriend in peace. Only issue: Magnus is Hades, and visiting him means taking a trip to the land of the dead. Magnus is understandably wary, but Alec’s not deterred – all they have to do is make sure Alec doesn’t eat anything from down there and everything will be fine.
Also starring Jace as a traumatized Hermes, Maryse as a furious Demeter, and Izzy, Clary, and Maia as the Fate Sisters reeled in to help with an unprecedented dilemma.
“I think I would remember if I had–” And then the words catch in Alec’s throat as a single, terrible thought occurs to him. He slowly turns to look at Magnus, whose face has gone deathly pale from the same realization. Against his will, his gaze drops to Magnus’ crotch. Alec – Alec definitely had something in his mouth while he’s been down here.

[Hockey] unquenchable thirst in our throats - helveticaneue
He spends those decades learning how to play, until he’s good enough to make it, he thinks. He’s not a natural like some humans are. The water, frozen white, is not like the wine dark waves of the Mediterranean where he used to swim with his sisters, off the rocky shores of their remote island. He trains the cold and the wrongness of the ice out of him until he loves it, loves it like he’s never loved anything.
It’s okay to love things. It’s not like how humans love. It’s like how he once loved wrecking ships on rocky shores.
