Part of the Captain America Reverse Big Bang, Alby's original artworks included numerous hand drawn pieces including chapter dividers. From the summary: "Six years ago, Bucky left the hamlet of Lynbrook to battle against the Knights of Hydra. Steve has missed him ever since, and refuses to believe he's dead. One night, Steve finds a frog at the well— a frog with one metal arm."


Our Memories Are Numbered

A collaboration with author Rufflefeather, Our Memories Are Numbered was posted on December 21, 2012 as part of the Teen Wolf Big Bang. There were various hand drawn works including a story banner and chapter separator. From the summary: "Stiles’ Jeep grinds to a halt, he sees someone running through the rain, he's not expecting it to be Derek. He's not expecting a Derek without any memories either, or an Alpha pack that's coming for all of them. He probably should've, because lately nothing goes the way he expects."


Flying Change

Flying Change is a collaboration with Magnolia822 for the Paperlegends challenge in 2013. The black and white drawn artwork included a story banner, divider of Arthur riding a horse, and images of Merlin and Mordred. From the summary, "After a few false starts, Arthur and Merlin find common ground in their exasperation, affection, and concern for Mordred, and their mutual attraction quickly blossoms . . . but an unforeseen event threatens their fragile happiness before the summer ends."
