    As per anon's request, I'm uploading a bunch of my Khaba/Ammet oneshots (at least the relatively decent ones.) Enjoy my trash and feel free to post your own because there is too little content for this ship.

    Summary

    It all starts a little something like this.

    Bartimaeus is eighteen years old, scrappy and acerbic, jaded far past his time. He’s made up of fluid angles, foot to ankle to hip to neck, all crammed together in a lithe body tanned a perpetual summer-brown. The day he moves away from home, he throws all of Nathaniel’s things that he can find into a battered cardboard box.

    And then he chucks that box into a lake.

    Summary

    Jack has been kidnapped by a Goa'uld named Kek. While he suffers through unbearable torture, SG-1 is dealing with a different conflict. The Scarlet Lord, a "god" who is being held in the cells of Stargate Command, has decided to tell them the information they need in order to rescue him. But with the Goa'uld promises of information comes with a story about a young boy named Jackie. Captivated by his story, the SG-1 eagerly listen to how he managed to change the life of a lonely librarian. Do they trust the words of a previously confirmed liar, or do they cast aside his touching tale of loss and friendship?

    Summary

    When he was five years old, Nathaniel's parents discovered a startling fact - their only child had the potential to become a magician. They could have easily given him up to the government and taken the reward. But they loved their son, so they decided to pretend that his gifts had never existed. It became a closely guarded secret; even Nathaniel was unaware of his latent abilities. Years went by. They raised him the best they could, showering him with love and affection. They imparted their strong sense of justice onto their son, who grew to despise the magicians from their oppressive rule. It was only when he turned ten that he realized he had the means to overthrow them - for reasons unknown to him, he could easily summon their demons.

    Summary

    In another world, magic is what fuels the actions of its people. It is what drives them to become just rulers or courageous heroes. It is what fosters the avarice in the hearts of many. Magic is the life force that all are grateful for.

    But in modern day London, magic is nothing more than a fairy tale. Magic exists only in stories and distant memories, something that has long since been farchiveofourowno.comotten. Its occupants go about their lives without ever knowing of the magic that once was their life force. The world of Earth has grown to farchiveofourowno.comet its origins.

    Then, on Halloween, all of that changes.

    What could only be described as portals suddenly appear in the old city. And the three teenagers they appear before choose to go through it. They end up in a world that is better suited towards fiction than reality. If they're going to survive in this strange new world, they're going to need to work together. But with secrets and magic running amok, will they be able to move past their differences?

    Summary

    It seems that the spirit she thought was dead and gone isn’t so dead after all. Kitty could spit she’s so furious.

    “This is about the worst way you could tell me you’re alive, Bartimaeus,” Kitty grits through her teeth. Her fingers curl against the countertop, nails nearly cutting into the wood.

    The man gives her a confused look. “Sorry,” he says carefully. “I think you’re mistaking me for someone else.”

    Summary

    Kitty shifted nervously her weight from one foot to the other. The simple suburban little house looked like a gallows platform to her eyes, which she was absolutely forced to climb up. True, she would have asked Asmira, who gladly would have made her a favour; but Kitty would have felt an awful person sending her roommate to recover lock, stock and barrel from her own house. After all, they were just ten minutes.

    Summary

    Summary

    Or: The story of art shops, blueberry muffins, seven crowns per hour, weekend days off spent in a library or that odd café next to the train station, and how accidentally appearing in the wrong universe ended up being the best thing to ever happen in Simpkin’s life.

    (Crossover with my fantasy setting- prior knowledge not necessary to enjoy. I need a place for this that isn't my hard drive, you know...)
