An original (in progress) Sci-Fi Slash Romance that spans multiple universes.

Noah Newport is a shy, timid twentysomething with a boring job and uneventful life. Unbeknowest to him, he's also the target of an interstellar terrorist who's been murdering alternate versions of him throughout the multiverse. An ancient order of futuristic knights sends Grant Bjornlund to protect Noah, who he reluctantly begins to fall in love with.

Major tropes present in Hero Complex are:

  • Welcome Episode: Noah is introduced to The Brotherhood in "Brave New World".
  • Wham Episode: "Bed of Revelations", in which Noah discovers the truth about the multiverse and Grant's identity.
  • When Dimensions Collide: Earth 1012 and the Dead Earth are forcibly merged by The Ascendant toward the end of the story.
  • Your Universe or Mine?: The main source of contention between Noah and Grant. The rare times that they argue always involve the logistics of maintaining a relationship across two universes.
