Imbalance - northerntrash - The Hobbit - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
Summary: “He looks more like a dryad than the Lord of the Underworld,” the newcomer remarked, coldly.

In which Bilbo inherits the Underworld, Thorin can't get the hand of growing things, and neither of them have a clue what to do.

|| Bilbo, newly formed God and recently installed ruler of a Kingdom that he did not understand, was having a bad day.

It had been easy enough when he had first burst into creation, for he had been a free thing then, brimming with laughter despite the war that had raged between the new creatures of the divine realm and the old: he had not played as much of a role in the war as others seemed to assume, but his habit of passing unseen through dark places had proved to be of some significant use. As such, when it had come to dividing up existence between them all, he had been allocated one of the greatest lots of them all.

The problem was, he didn’t really want it.

aos_challenge: "Mortal Beloved" by inlovewithnight- Pirates of the Caribbean
CHALLENGE PROMPT: Ghosts AUTHOR'S NOTE: Futurefic. I love Greek myths too much.

Elizabeth dies in bed.
Her throat is cut, sliced from skin to spine, a fitting death for a pirate king, but she is in bed and on land without a wave or a current to be found. She does not die at sea. This puts her spirit on an entirely different path than the souls the Dutchman collects and ferries, one that never skirts the edges of Davy Jones' Locker.

treknovelfest | Illustration for "Three T'kay Stories"
I was quite intrigued by the stories, but was disappointed that the text-only archive version of From The Terran Coyote to The Klingon K'Ortar that she'd recovered had only descriptions of the illustrations, rather than the original color plates.

So, since I live in the area and have access to the library at Starfleet Academy's Annapolis campus, I offered to search the collection of the art library there to see if I could find other images of the objects in question and reconstruct, as far as possible, the original pages.

treknovelfest | From The Terran Coyote to The Klingon K'Ortar: Tricksters of the Alpha and Beta Quadrants
The below tale is but one of hundreds of "Trickster Steals Fire" folktales that can be found in almost every culture across the Alpha and Beta Quadrants. It was originally transmitted orally, and the first written record of T'Kay (also known as T'Lei, and in some variants from the Southern hemisphere, a male figure known as Saa'n) appeared in fragments of the pre-Reformation poetry recovered from the Kir Region of Northern Vulcan in 1521 C.E.

There have already been several attempts to fictionalize the last days of Sunnydale, the otherwise ordinary Californian town that was destroyed by the collapse of an underground cave system four years ago. This ambitious semi-autobiographical first novel, aimed at the young adult market, is a fusion of fantasy and magical realism in which high school students rub shoulders with demons, the narrator's sister Billie is secretly in love with a vampire, and the town literally falls into Hell.
