The members of a fundamentalist congregation discover a brand new way to show devotion.
Jamie is 19 and fresh out of high school, taking a gap year before committing to four years of post-secondary education before entering the workforce. He’s always been fascinated by Japan and saves up enough money working during the summer to go on an overseas trip for the holidays. He makes his way from Kyushu in the south all the way to snowy Hokkaido in the north, where a strange encounter at an old onsen up in the mountains changes his life forever.
Being smart is difficult enough without wanting to change the world too and Robbie’s had enough. Maybe he can find a different way to make the world a better place, and maybe he won’t have to use his silly little head as much for it.

Renowned explorer Evander Gladstone has set off on one of his daring adventures in search of the Mighty Golden Rod of Asclepius, a wand said to possess the power to heal any affliction.

Little does he know that the maze is a far deadlier trap than he could have ever imagined.

Memory and intelligence is such an interesting multifaceted subject. Had a great time discussing it during Psychology lectures.
The reason I bring it up is because Tom Holland cannot remember not to spoil the endings of his movies. Every interview he forgets to stop talking but doesn’t forget the story.
Episodic vs Semantic memory, explicit vs implicit. Question to the Pink Fairy. How much damage can it do to a boys intelligence if you surgically remove their ability to remember events of their lives, but leave the rest of their cognitive facilities intact? Present your findings to the group.

A/N: As I’ve expressed before, fanfiction is not a thing that I like to do, especially in the context of this blog and story requests that I receive. I wrote this for a friend. Please don’t expect fanfiction to be more common on this blog. It will not be. I might start an Archive of Our Own account if I decide to write more fanfiction and future works will be posted there.
Persona 5 AU – Akechi Goro and Kurusu Akira are in university now, and continuing the work of the Phantom Thieves, keeping Mementos in check and making sure to collapse any palaces that crop up. A mission goes awry, however, when they face a shadow unlike any they’ve fought before.
It’s election season, and having missed the last one because he wasn’t old enough, Gavin is more than ready to do his civic duty and vote. He knows things can get pretty crowded since he’s living in Manhattan, so he goes to his local polling station bright and early only to find that it’s already packed and that there’s an hour-long wait. Determined not to let the travesty that was the last election happen, though, he decides to stay and see this through. Things aren’t quite as they seem when he enters the DIQ-sponsored polling station, but he leaves plenty satisfied that he’s done his job as an upstanding citizen and a new supporter of DIQ’s progressive agenda in congress.
