    Summary

    “You are fascinating Johnny Boy. You seem to be the average Joe don’t you? Seem to be the simple boy with the good grades and the lily white reputation…” He leaned forward, so that he was pressed into John’s personal space, looking darkly into those baby-blues. “But you aren’t are you? You. Are so. Much. More.”
    Sherlock Holmes is the leader of a gang of greasers at Baker High. He is also incredibly bored. That changes when the new kid gets in his way, and does something very unexpected. Sherlock is interested, and tackles the new mystery - who is John Watson?

    So the prodigal returns. Didja miss me? No?? Well, TS cause I'm back anyway!

    When Sherlock Holmes meets John Watson as a child in 1949, he has no idea what he's in for.

    Summary

    Marissa loved working at the library. She knew most of the townsfolk in Jupiter, but she had never seen him before. It was not cold outside but he was wearing leather gloves that matched his jacket, under which was a white t-shirt paired with jeans. As he walked up to the front desk Marissa could see he was taller than her, but not as tall as Andrew was. He had tousled dark brown hair and deep brown eyes. He leaned on the desk, and smiled at her in a friendly way.

    Marissa picked up one of the flyers and glanced at it, intrigued by what was shown on it. “Oh, this looks like an interesting show. Are you one of the performers?”

    “Yeah, I am. They call me the Lobster Boy,” He laughed. “But my real name is Jimmy Darling.”

    Summary

    Comfort is something we all yearn for; being comfortable with how we act, who we're with, and what we use to dress ourselves. However, comfort doesn't always equate to "socially acceptable" and Eren Jaeger couldn't give a damn about that. Not when he has a stellar boyfriend and a bitching dress on to match.

    Summary

    It was when Luke thought for a split second that he knew life thoroughly, from soup to nuts, that he realized behind the horizon he had always seen so sharply, was a whole other world. A whole other world that was waiting for him, every morning when he rose from his uncomfortable bed and thought it could not get a lot worse.
    Maybe, if he had known beforehand that it would go like this, he would have never ran away, that August in 1950. But in all honestly, no, he would not have done it any differently. Because if he would have, there was no chance he would have met the one he loved now. He would have never met Ashton and that thought was a whole lot more frightening than the thought of his current life.

    The story of a man falling in love with someone he's never met. The story of another man falling in love with a man who died in his arms.
