    Summary

    "He didn’t know why he was taking all those photos of him, he didn’t even know his name. But the way he looked over the crowd, the way his lips pressed against the mic, the way his fingers danced along the fretboard, and the way the lights hit his face with a mesmerizing glow—a whole new world opened up for Luke, and he found a new art to capture."

    or

    Luke is a photographer that thinks only scenery is what’s worth capturing, but a struggling musician changes that, and Luke can't stop looking at his picture.

    Summary

    The girl is sprawled out across the cement, looking up at her with wide, frightened eyes. She has soft features, a small nose with round cheeks and arching eyebrows. Her hair is short and wild and bathed in the golden light of the sunrise. Hell, all of her is - it’s as though she were the one glowing, not the sun.

    Jesus Christ, she was gay.

    Summary

    The year is 1985. Sakura Haruno waitresses at a local diner and wonders if dropping out of nursing school means she'll be stuck in sleepy, small-town Bedford Falls for the rest of her life, forever in her best friend's shadow. Sasuke Uchiha's a man on the run, thrust into a world deeper and darker than he ever anticipated.

    The chilly Northwestern wind brings change as lives collide, and hearts are bared (as well as broken). The Double R Diner sits at the center of it all- but its foundation will need to be strong enough to weather the storm

    (Falling in love with your best friend can be just as bad as falling in love with your worst enemy).

    Summary

    A soul mark that suddenly swirls and reforms into a new name at least once a month has some interesting implications for society. First of all, it’s not always a name in a language the wearer can read.

    Some unlucky souls have marks that vanish, never to reform. Does that mean they’re so unlovable that no one could want them? There’s an unbearable thought. A soul mark is a lot like an appendix, everyone has one and one day it could destroy you.

    Brock Rumlow is eighteen years old and a Blank. He's never had a soul mark. And it's killing him.

    This is a 1980's Teen Movie AU.

    Summary

    “OK, first, I need to tell you this. I thought about this date all week long, OK? I mean, all week long and that’s not a joke, Jiminie.”

    “Hmm, Yoongi,” Jimin said around his slushie straw, his lips lifting up into a smile. “That’s cute.”

    “Huh?” Yoongi hummed, lifting his eyebrows as he did. But his boyfriend just carried on sipping at his drink, which meant that he should continue explaining. So, he shifted on the wall and tried to think of the right words to say. “Well, you put a lot of thought into the first two dates, so, that meant that I needed to do something special too. But, I ain’t in Gangnam-gu, and it’s hard to find out about all of these new cool places to visit, yeah? And Seodaemun-gu is pretty much dead of an evening, which meant that I really had to think to find the right place. That’s when it hit me.”

    “What hit you, Yoongi?”

    “Something special, somewhere special, there’s only one place in this district like that,” he stated, before quickly adding. “The arcade, Jiminie: Electrozone.”

     

    A.K.A. that oneshot in which Yoongi is highly competitive whilst playing Galaga, Jimin bets kisses, and everything is soft like always™
