    Summary

    Leather is a material that you'd always found comforting, as weird as it may be. It's soft, in a way, and the texture of it has always been able to calm you down.
    That, and a boy you have a rather embarrassing crush on wears it nearly all of the time.
    You wouldn't have such a problem with that if you weren't a boy too, and if you didn't live in Southern Oklahoma in the midst of the 1950's, where that sort of thing is much more than unacceptable.
    Now, on top of that, you seem to be struggling with a few less than desirable mental health issues, which your father isn't willing to take you to the doctor over in fear of you being thrown straight into the loony bin.
    You, despite being a very happy person, are not having a good time.

    Summary

    Summary

    Bilbo was the epitome of cool. His golden-blonde hair was always combed to perfection and slicked back in the latest style. It seemed he had a permanent smirk glued to his face, as though he knew every dirty little secret. Thorin, on the other hand, was the epitome of square. Everything from his polished penny-loafers, to his ironed button-up and lame glasses.

    So when Bilbo greeted him with a lazy, “Hey, there,” his lips curving into a dangerous smile, Thorin was quite befuddled – and more than a little nervous.

    Summary

    There are times when Cronus Ampora feels it in his bones that he's something special. That he, and Dirk, and Meenah, and Porrim, and Rufioh, and even Eridan, are all part of something bigger. There are times that he feels the history of the future running through his veins. No matter how much his father tries to convince him otherwise, there's just enough evidence that no, this generation of youth is somehow different.

    Most of the time, Cronus is just trying to live his life, but then there are times when that sensation becomes almost painfully present. Sometimes, changing the radio station is enough to ignore it, but when this symptom of the history-to-be lands right in his lap, it isn't as easy.

    As Dirk would say; the person Cronus wants to be would grab this bull by the horns and ride that high of youth rebellion into oblivion. Key word being "would".

    Ambiguously set in USA in 1958. I am not an american in 1958, and so - though I've tried to stay true to the era - this fic is more concerned with understanding feeling and setting rather than getting all the details correct down to a T. Hopefully you will enjoy it just as much as I enjoyed rolling around in 1950's Americana.

    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

    She hated the way her curls perfectly framed her face, how they glowed in the sunlight outside during lunch, and bounced with each step the girl took. She hated the way that her chest fluttered, every, single, time, that their eyes met, a calm, blue ocean fighting against a wild, green forest. She hated her and yet absolutely revered the girl who sat two rows behind her, who threw balls of crumpled up paper at her back throughout the class, who started arguments with her over the current subject, just to get a rise from the ever studious blonde. She didn't know if she wanted to lunge forward and capture the girl's lips between her own or wrap her fingers around the girl's slim throat and shove her to the ground.

    or the 1950's high school AU where Lexa is a bad ass greaser who falls for the studious schoolgirl Clarke, or maybe it's the other way around. Basically the story that you never knew you wanted, and trust me, you'll want this.

    Summary

    Summer, 1956. An unexceptional town, somewhere in the middle of America.

    “I saw a doctor.”

    “Down a back-alley? You in trouble, or something?” He shifted again, hand resting on his hat, as if he was about to run. Unease flared in her stomach. He was definitely trouble with a capital T but she didn’t want another dead person on her conscience. “Let me see your arm.”
