    Summary

    The year is 1984 and it's a great time for movies and movie fans. John Watson is a struggling film school student with dreams of being a screenwriter. It's a dream come true when his friend, Mike, gets him a job reviewing movies for the university paper.

    Sherlock Holmes is also a film school student with dreams of directing, but he's also struggling to get his life back on track. The job at Baker Cinema is supposed to help him do just that, but it's SO BORING.

    Until, that is, a young movie reviewer buys a ticket to Footloose and Sherlock's life suddenly becomes very, very complicated.

    Summary

    It begins at an award show. Dean Winchester is a well-known actor, standing before a crowd with Charlie at his side. The world looks at him and sees someone that has everything. The fame, the fortune, the life. They don't see the loss or what he refuses to tell. Then Charlie, his manager, sets up an interview with a journalist that seems to know how to get at the truth. It seems to take no time before Dean is sharing more than he intended, and Benny is ready to capture it all on camera. Because some stories just must be told.

    Summary

    A collection of ficlets and snippets inspired by Tumblr and #xmentales chat.

    So far: Charles is a cat or a Renaissance-era muse or a professor or an imprisoned high-level telepath or a young man of the senatorial class in Rome or an Oceanid. Meanwhile, Erik is sick or a talented but struggling painter or a graduate student or a spy searching for his missing telepath or a former gladiator-turned-slave or a pirate. Also they are both seahorses. Or fae. Or gods. Or platypuses. Or genetically-modified fruit. Or space travelers. Or on a date. And there's one with Wesley Gibson and Brandon Sullivan. And one with Wesley again, but also Max, Simon, and Brian. And a couple of A/O snippets, one on a boat and one in a bedroom.

    Summary

    The year is 1985. Humans and mutants have lived together for a hundred years and now co-exist peacefully.

    That is, outside of high school. Charles Xavier happens to be an ordinary human being, but that's not the worst of his troubles. He's a true geek, with so few friends he could count them on two fingers, and he also happens to be the school's favourite victim.

    Erik has always looked down upon humans without any powers, thinking he is superior to them.

    Naturally, he's not pleased at all when for some unknown reason, Charles latches onto him after only one lesson of group work as though they were the best of friends.

    Summary

    The Young Avengers' band is also called The Young Avengers, because they're very subtle. They've written three songs together: "Destroy You," "Superpowered," and "Unnatural Love," which, given the percentage of people in the band with the same equipment fucking each other, you might think was about gay liberation, but actually chronicles the time Loki read them the juicy parts of Flowers in the Attic on a trip up the coast.

    Summary

    It’s six o’clock in the morning. Thomas is sitting alone at the bar of the club he arrived at, at 11:30 last night. The electronic music playing is loud, almost loud enough to drown out his own thoughts, and the colorful lights dancing around the large building create the illusion of a party scene, but the place is nearly empty. The only people left are the ones like Thomas, who have nowhere better to be, because there is no place they ever really want to be.

    "The only gay cause I was going to fight was mine, which chiefly involved meeting other guys and getting laid."

    It's September, 1989.

    Summary

    Spock is a lonely post-graduate student at Columbia who is just coming to terms with being gay. Jim is a bright, vivacious young man with as many secrets as scars. They both find an outlet for their emotions in the alternative club scene in late 1980s Manhattan – and in each other. But will Jim’s dark past ruin the tenuous relationship they’ve built?
