Synopsis: This is a fanfic based on the Johnny's groups Kanjani8 and NEWS.

Years ago, Hiroki Uchi used to be childhood playmates with the boys who would later become the leaders of Heisei Gakuen. However, after unforeseen circumstance, Hiroki transfers to Showa Gakuen.

As time passes, both sides become more desperate, and Ryo Nishikido, the leader of Heisei Gakuen's Class 2, is contacted out of the blue by Showa and presented with an impossible choice: betrayal of his school and Heisei brothers or ultimate power. Just how strong can lifelong bonds of friendship be…before they break?

Lydia (koryoslore)
Title: Mute
Synopsis: The earth is a dump, and the human race has long since decided to leave. All that remained to seed a brand new world were the worst criminals of human society. And this is a new world- with limited technology, an inhospitable climate, and monstrous animals, it takes a lot of luck to survive to adulthood. Young Nur is doing her best, but the odds are stacked against her: after a horrible childhood accident, she's taken from her home and placed among the lundi, the lowly caste designated to care for the war-beasts known as brima. Brima are descended from parrots, but their size is elephantine and their power unmistakable. Nur may very well be killed by Mash, the brima she is assigned to care for, as he grows larger and more furious. However, she gradually realizes that she and Mash have more in common than meets the eye: with no power to control her own life, she, like him, is mute.
