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.

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)

The Audari were nothing if not consistent, so Kaneri was certainly going to die, and that death was certainly going to be unpleasant, but he’d known for years that it was coming, eventually.

The Revolutionary - astolat - Transformers Generation One
Ratchet couldn’t quit poking at his own diagnostics afterwards, even though he knew better. On a meta level, he did know what had happened: he’d taken on a heaping truckload of new emotionally-charged experiences and data, and then he hadn’t defragged for forty-nine hours and had stalled out all his conscious emotional routines. So his subconscious routines had pulled all the input down and started chugging through it for him. They were still going. Trying to short-circuit that process now would just give him a bunch of neurological knots and a bad headache, but dammit, he still wanted to know what he was thinking.

Near-death experiences were good for giving the emotional subsystem a jolt, but he could tell it hadn’t been a simple kick. First he’d almost died, and then, nearly four astroseconds later, based on some subconscious conclusion, his core emotion processor had decided actually the world wasn’t so terrible and it was safe for his feelings to come back out, so it had rebooted them.

Cyclonus slowly raised his head and looked at them: he had not been wrong, he thought distantly. They were his brothers in arms; they would be. And every other Autobot in this city—and the very city itself—would be dead. He was in a parallel universe, but one so close to his own that it was nearly identical.

Nocturne: Book 1 - venusm - Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling
You can’t end a war with a single death. The hatred, the divisions, the cruelty, the heartbreak, it doesn’t end on a single morning. As the wizarding community in Britain struggles to rebuild, magic itself begins to fracture, mirroring the fractures in society.

Spells fail, wards fall, and unpredictable explosions of power shatter brick and mortar, blood and bone.

The Ritual of Reconciliation is an ancient blood magic ritual that should, if successful, slowly begin to heal the wounds War brings.

At its heart, the rite marries two people, one from each side. The husband must come from those who lost. The bride must come from those who won.

The more tied to the conflict the respective spouses, the more beloved by their respective peoples, the more successful the ritual, because blood magic is old magic and the oldest magic?

Requires sacrifice.

Or, how Harry and Draco wind up in an old fashioned pureblood-style traditional marriage and have to fuck every night lest magic die.

TLDR: kink, worldbuilding, darkness, love, drinking, pureblood customs, potions, wizarding homes, jewelry, sex, pain, roses, body adornment, rituals, and a dread portal python named Arky. (6,584 words so far)

SATOKO - YourIdiotWriter - Naruto
Being a ninja isn't as cool as one might think. It generally involves a lot of horrified screaming and praying for your life to a bunch of gods you've never even heard of. I mean, it kinda makes up for itself if you can shoot lightning from your finger tips and spit lava from your mouth, but you don't get any of that cool shit when you get to replace the ostracized and totally hated main character who can do exactly neither of those things and more. I'm really looking forward to this, guys. Not.

((Or: SI replaces Naruto and proceeds to try and solve her problems with explosions and fire, and glitter. Is convinced the universe is out to get her because every time she tries to do something right, everything becomes worse. 116,488 words so far))
