Eye'm the cutest!
Norse mythology suddenly got a lot more interesting when a woman came crashing from the sky in the city of Svalbard. This woman, clad in old Norse armor and speaking in a very archaic Norse dialect quickly disappeared following this event. She was later sighted beyond the city limits trying to apparently find her way back home. But with a team of government agents on the look for her and several local farmers trying to aid her quest, will she ever return? Or will she become living proof that the Valkyries were real after all?

The Harbinger of Strange
An episode in a show about a heavy metal band which fights supernatural monsters and forces with The Power of Rock. Said episode, featuring the undead necromancer Gravehammer and his legions of undead mooks, was equally praised and criticized for being MUCH darker in tone than the usual goofy, lighthearted fare and for permanently killing the bassist, one of the most beloved characters on the show, inciting a massive fan backlash. In an attempt to address the backlash, the creators of the show brought back the bassist as the band's wacky ghost companion, rock-impaired due to his inability to hold his bass guitar.

So...yeah.
For thousands and thousands of years, ever since scripture was invented, unbeknownst to humans, Earth has been the scene of a desperate and bitter struggle between two races. There are the Phenices, who take their tremendous power from devouering the potential for inspired thought that is lost to humanity when a book is burned. And there are the Muses, who derive their power from the energy that the collective web of creative thought generates.

For thousands of years, the Phenices and the Muses have warred with one another, one kind inspiring humanity, and the other destroying the fruit of inspiration. Sometimes there was a period when the Muses gained the upper hand over the Phenices, sometimes it was the Phenices who gained the upper hand over the Muses, but on the whole, it balanced out.

But now, the Phenices are putting in motion a plan of such magnitude as never before and the Muses are scrambling to prevent it. Our young protagonist becomes embroiled in their conflict as both sides try to obtain him/her for themselves, because he/she has a rare gift that will decide the outcome of this battle. Suddenly on the run and with no-one to turn to, the protagonist findes him/herself at the centre of a war, with nothing less than the future of the human mind at stake.

Complicated - because simple is simply too simple.
A black comedy about a serial killer trying to explain to his latest victim why he uses blades, as opposed to the more efficient guns, more elusive poisons, or more exotic gadgets such as, I dunno, iron maidens. This proves to be quite frustrating for the killer since his victim has counterpoints for everything.

When the last two holes of Grumptionally Hill golf course were destroyed in a terrorist attack the last two holes were never rebuilt out of respect for those killed in the attack, leaving a '16 Hole' golf course. The story follows the tale of Detective Juha Ethirty as he attempts to unravel the mystery of which organisation actually performed the attack, as at least 43 have so far claimed to be responsible. Will he solve the mystery? Will he bring the perpetrators to justice? Will he seduce the beautiful 26 year old daughter of the club's manager? Find out, in '16 Hole'.

[up][up] A botch in the afterlife system causes a certain Howard Elises to reincarnate in the clubroom of hardcore dinosaur geeks... as an expensive plastic velociraptor model. Howard figures that he might be able to fix things if he goes back to the place where he died, so he escapes; however, he had a tracker on him, and the geeks hunt him down, unable to stand losing their most prized figurine.

Creepy adorable little girl
After a hangover that lasted for five years, Mike Harris sobers up to a completely different world. A world of iPads, the Higgs Boson, Justin Bieber, and the Interpol trying to find him for a crime he doesn't remember committing. What did Harris do in his unnatural drunken haze, and will he be able to clear his name in a hangover he didn't deserve?

Bitter Hateful Cynic
The empowering and humoristic story of a young woman who decides to go against social norms and become a firefighter, only to fall in love with the reporter running a multi-part story on her plight as a would-be-firefighter. Dodging nosy friends who think she's in it to meet fit blokes, a mother who doesn't seem to think she has it in her and a father who couldn't be more proud of his daughter, and her future co-workers and friends who haven't decided yet how to respond to this pink new whirlwind in their lives.

Monty Python's Flying Circus

 148 Ars Thaumaturgis, Sun, 17th Mar '13 12:50:53 PM Relationship Status: I've been dreaming of True Love's Kiss
An anime about a man-sized talking snake who runs an airborne circus. Unfortunately, his habit of eating the occasional customer (but only one or two!) has attracted the attention of people in the village below. While none of them are ever taken — only ever foreigners — they are afraid that the reputation that his predations bring may drive work from their village.

So a small group of locals gather what weapons and courage they have, buy their tickets, and ascend to the Flying Circus. There they must navigate past gorilla bouncers, man-faced dogs and stranger attractions yet, all the while chasing the elusive Monty towards an inevitable confrontation that will change everything that they thought that they knew about their town- and indeed, their world.
