Memento Mori (D.Gray-man) - A Miranda and Lavi-centric oneshot of fifty years after the war. Very dark and angsty.
Whom Gods Destroy (D.Gray-man) - Oneshot of 14th's childhood. His father would always come home with a bottle in his hand... (Think this is my worst fic, despite the most reviews I've ever gotten for a story.)
Before I Sleep (D.Gray-man) - Short meandering view from Allen's perspective based on the idea what if the N. American Branch Incident been far worse? ABANDONED.

Counterpart, My Other Half (Blue Exorcist) - First published AnE fic. Anime-universe view of Yukio's subconscious and conscious feelings about his position, himself, and his brother. Title based on another fic by Anditends. (Actually, this one is the most peculiar and my favorite of all my fics because of the writing style.)

Sleeping in Light (Blue Exorcist) - Future fic. 80 years after the series, Shiemi receives a call from the True Cross Order that Rin is coming home for the last time. RinxShiemi.
Prometheus (Blue Exorcist) - Future fic. In the middle of a fight with the King of Fire, Iblis, the Kurikara shatters and transports Shura ten years into the future, where half of the Asian continent is a wasteland, demons are common knowledge, and her student has become twisted in search for absolution. (In research hell on this one. Anyone familiar with Indian culture in the Thar Desert and demographics?)
This Mortal Coil (Blue Exorcist) - After the Japanese government loses all contact with a coastal shantytown, they request the True Cross Order's help in determining what happened. Yukio, still recovering from his traitorous stint with Toudou, is sent.
"'There is a greater darkness than the one we fight. It is the darkness of the soul that has lost its way. The war we fight is not against powers and principalities, it is against chaos and despair. Greater than the death of flesh is the death of hope. The death of dreams. Against this peril we can never surrender.' The future is all around us, waiting in moments of transition, to be born in moments of revelation. No one knows the shape of that future, or where it will take us. We know only that it is always born…in pain." - G'Kar, Babylon 5
"Babylon 5 was the last of the Babylon stations. There would never be another. It changed the future…and it changed us. It taught us that we have to create the future, or others would do it for us. It showed us that we have to care for one another, because if we don't, who will? And that true strength sometimes comes from the most…unlikely places. Mostly though, I think it gave us hope—that there can always be new beginnings…even for people like us."- Susan Ivanova, Babylon 5 (1995).
"Earth. Even the word sounded strange to me now... unfamiliar. How long had I been gone? How long had I been back? Did it matter? I tried to find the rhythm of the world where I used to live. I followed the current. I was silent, attentive, I made a conscious effort to smile, nod, stand, and perform the millions of gestures that constitute life on earth. I studied these gestures until they became reflexes again. But I was haunted by the idea that I remembered her wrong, and somehow I was wrong about everything." - Chris Kelvin, Solaris (2003).
