Not Ready to Swallow Oblivion - the_rck - Sky High (2005)
Layla kind of hated having to hope that all Warren wanted was pets because that meant admitting that it was up to him. Everything that happened-- or didn’t-- was at the whim of a fifteen year old boy who’d decided he wanted them based on a week’s acquaintance. She supposed it wouldn’t matter much to her or her friends if Warren destroyed them accidentally or deliberately, just how much it hurt getting there.

// This is a dark AU that currently has two branches. The first branch is complete in the first story. The next four stories comprise the second branch. There may be other branches later, but I consider these two branches complete. (94,425 words)

Bloom in Winter - e_va - Boku no Hero Academia | My Hero Academia
Izuku Midoriya used to want to be a hero. It seems a distant dream, now, after everything that he's done—after everything that he's been made to do. But it's still there. It's a dim, flickering flame, burning lower by the day.

He doesn't have time to concern himself with that though, these days he's too focused on staying alive to think too much about what he can never have.

Then All Might takes a job teaching at UA, and the universe says hey you know what would be fun? What if we fucked Izuku over even more than we already have? and thus, Izuku ends up in the General Education class of UA with strict instructions to report everything he can, because, thank fucking no one, he just can't catch a goddamn break.

AKA Hisashi Midoriya is a member of one of the most notorious underground supervillain organizations, and Izuku is being forced to help them (even though, trust him, he'd really rather not). Too bad that they don't predict that Izuku's going to get adopted by half the faculty when they send him to spy on the prestigious hero academy. (74,981 words so far)

the boy and the fox - cyan96 - Naruto
In a universe where Namikaze Minato died without being able to summon the Shinigami, Uzumaki Kushina, in a last-ditch containment effort, seals Kurama's ying into a container made from her own blood and chakra. The Saidaime picks up two newborns in the wreckage of October tenth, unknowing one of them is quite literally the Kyuubi wearing an infant's face. Fortunately, nobody knows about Kurama's dilemma but Kurama. Unfortunately, he's stuck, both in Kushina's two-second slap-dash should-not-exist human shell, and with Uzumaki Naruto, who is possibly the most annoying being in Kurama's two thousand years of existence. He is not pleased.

What Kurama really wants to do is get the hell out of dodge, return to being a giant demon-fox, and then preferably blast all five ninja villages and their smaller derivatives out of the map. This is, unfortunately, a harder task than originally thought. (83,198 words so far)

Xenoethnography - Therrae (Dasha_mte) - Transformers - All Media Types
It also didn’t help that the average glyph message was only three characters long, used no articles or prepositions, and usually had no verbs. What was the proper response to:: Curiosity; Sensation of great speed? Was it a question? A comparison?  Why, after a brief visit by National Security Director Mearing, did four different ‘Bots send:: Emphasis; overlapping? Why was a particularly bad joke by Bulkhead derided as ::Undercharged when there were actual glyphs for Not funny and Humor fail? How did any of that work? (101,743 words so far)

Man in Twilight - binz, shiplizard - Pocket Monsters: Sun & Moon | Pokemon Sun & Moon Versions
It's about ten years before the events of Sun and Moon, and freshly-retired Agent 000 has just come home to Ula'ula.

He's still having nightmares about the encounter with UB Glutton. He's exhausted all the time and convinced more than ever that he's a failure and a fraud. The island of his childhood has changed while he was away, too-- his home town is half deserted, there's a strange new Foundation in town, and there's something unnatural lurking on the black sand beach under the ruined Megamart.

But that's not his problem anymore. He's retired.

Right? (70,524 words so far)

know what i've made by the marks on my hands - simkjrs - Boku no Hero Academia | My Hero Academia
Midoriya Izuku just wants to lead a quiet, peaceful life. This is foiled by the fact that a) he can see spirits, b) his good nature demands that he help anyone he sees in trouble, and c) he, by all rights, should not exist.

Helping the heroes who have fallen victim to the new quirk-breaking drug is a terrible idea for many reasons, the first and most important being that he hates attention and avoids it like the plague. But he's the only one who can help, so he does.

This is, Izuku decides as he breaks in, more trouble than it's worth. (46,561 words so far)

Venture Out Of Boredom - izanyas - Katekyou Hitman Reborn!
Hyacinthe Faure is many things. Lazy, ill-tempered, rude, greedy. A criminal by association. A decent lay. A heavy smoker. His one friend is only slightly better if you disregard their body count. He takes his job to heart, though, so when Reborn steals a century-old thesis about Japan's monstrous sea life, Hyacinthe goes after him. He's not Vongola's head archivist entirely for nothing.

He really should've looked at the fine print on that. (39,152 words so far)

for gold and rust (for diamonds and dust) - blackkat - Naruto

pull down your dreams (because you live on a totally bullshit ninja continent and should focus on that) - Electrasev5n - Naruto
Jiraiya makes a sealing discovery! By that he means he has accidentally managed to summon a very confused, unhappy human. Obviously, everyone should focus on the positives and not give this too much thought.

She would very much like to unsubscribe from all of this. (10,877 words so far)

Lovefool - Kittendiamore - Captive Prince - C. S. Pacat
It starts, embarrassingly enough, with an ad from Craigslist:

"I’m a 21 y.o art student (male), writing a thesis on the relationship between performance and the awareness of the audience. You don’t care about that. I’m an actor offering to give you the most dramatic night of your life. I’ll be your date to any event/function/family gathering, and convince your friends/family members that I’m either: the biggest mistake of your life or the best thing that ever happened to you. Up to you. I’m very good at what I do." (4,909 words)

Early Is On Time - wafflelate - Naruto
Aoba had always known that missions of any rank with Nara Shikako would involve confusion and terror, but reporting to the Hokage to give his mission report about the S-Rank he was given 11 months in the future is weird even by Team Seven standards. // Notes: Inspired by Dreaming of Sunshine by Silver Queen. This contains spoilers for, at the very least, everything up to and including the Land of Hot Springs arc of Dreaming of Sunshine by Silver Queen, which hopefully you've already read if you're reading this since this is a recursive fic! Most of this has been posted in the recursive thread on DoS's forum but I've rewritten a little to post it here. (18,412 words so far)
