  • Recommended by: SMARTALIENQT
  • Comments: She's written three JA fics so far, and all are very carefully crafted, with elegant writing in a way that really makes you feel what the characters are feeling, whether it's disgust or domestic love or anger or sympathy.

Stories focused on the family and the friendly relationships of the cast. Plot-focused stories or light day-in-the-life stories. Pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance.

The Socio-Parental Urges of Apis Mellifera by takiki16

  • Synopsis: I'd like to think that Kiza is the one who likes the bees, she tends the hives and sells honey at local state fairs and weekend farmers' markets, she has a little side business going while her dad takes care of Aegis business (and farming, apparently?). Like, she came to live with him on this little backwater planet and so he indulges her hobby, because it makes her happy and that's important to him.

  • Synopsis: One of the Abrasax gets de-aged as a 4-6-year-old or whatever and mentally as well. That person then ends up screaming that 'they want their Mother. NOW!!'Once they see Jupiter it's all 'Mama/Mother!' and wanting to be with her all the time, wanting cudddles, Mother, play time, Mother, naps and did I mention Mother? Basically baby duckling Abrasax, following her everywhere and being the sweetest thing (in their way) and Jupiter thinking that they are the most adorable person ever. The De-ageing is only temporary and they remember everything when they 'grow up'.
