    Summary

    Hux prided himself on being a man who managed to have interests outside of the military. His newest interest; history so old that many thought it useless in the modern age. And he could have been quite content, reading articles and books on ancient cultures if it wasn't for Kylo Ren, who seemed to have made it his goal to inject himself into Hux's academic pursuits when he wasn't destroying the ship through his apparent self-destructive tendencies.

    Or: Academia brings two idiots together and builds a new regime

    Summary

    Nix is a cosmology researcher at the University of Chicago, plumbing the secrets of the universe, but his time is running out. As the end of his grant approaches, he knows it's time to head back to New Jersey, to the family job awaiting him there, to his wife and his increasingly unhappy marriage. But everything and everyone he loves — the research that gives him purpose, the students he's grown unexpectedly fond of, his colleagues, in the form of Ron and especially his best friend Dick — are in Chicago. Are his career and the life he's carved for himself in Chicago worth destroying his family's expectations?

    Summary

    Victor Nikiforov was one of those vanishingly rare creatures; an archaeologist feted by both academics and the general public alike. One of the brilliant minds of his generation, he had first entered the public eye when he was fast-tracked to receive his PhD at the age of twenty-three, with a thesis which fundamentally changed the accepted literature on Ancient Mesopotamia. His extensive television appearances were celebrated for expertly bringing the past to life, without compromising on complexity or academic integrity. Moreover, whether writing, presenting, or lecturing, he appeared genuinely likeable; never anything but gracious when talking about even his most virulent of detractors, witty, personable and charming.

    His pre-eminence in the field was obviously why Yuuri Katsuki, studying for a Masters in ancient archaeology, had covered his room in posters of the man. Obviously. It had nothing to do with his blue, blue eyes and his jawline sharp enough to strike matches on, or the way he would sometimes flick his silver hair out of his eyes and wink at the camera…

    Archaeology AU: expect hot boys being clever, bad jokes about digging, me pretending I know what I'm talking about. Phichit being a babe.

    Summary

    Victor Nikiforov is hot shit in the physics world right now; a rising star whose PhD research got published in Science.

    Yuuri Katsuki is just another run-of-the-mill PhD student trying to pull himself together after his disastrous mess of a Master's degree. He's read all of Nikiforov's papers, but there's no way in hell that a scientific living legend would ever notice any of Yuuri's work.

    Is there?

    (Citing him a dozen times certainly couldn't hurt.)

    Summary

    After his application to the doctoral program was rejected due to his incomplete entrance essay, Yuuri Katsuki scores a job running a small local bookstore. Sure, it’s not his dream but it’s simple with few surprises and little stress. That is until a world renowned Shakespearean Scholar, Dr. Viktor Nikiforov, stops in one day and reminds Yuuri just why he applied in the first place. When Viktor happens upon an old uncompleted paper Yuuri had been working on, he realizes just what a genius Yuuri is, and vows to help him not only get in, but graduate with top honors. However, just being Yuuri’s mentor isn’t really what Viktor had in mind.

    Summary

    "There are rules, Nimona.”

    “What do you mean, there are rules?” Nimona throws her hands up in exasperation. Her face is twisted into it’s ‘I do not understand these morals of which you speak’ scowl. “If it’s already happened to you, why would you follow the rules? And besides, isn’t that the whole point of tenure? That you don’t have to follow the rules, anymore?”

    or

    That modern academia AU where Nimona doesn't understand why Professor Blackheart cares about silly things like departmental regulations or 'right and wrong' because he has rules that he lives by or some boring nonsense. Nimona really doesn't know why he and Professor Goldenloin haven't managed to pull their heads out of their asses and hook up, already. Does she have to do everything around here?

    Summary

    On his second semester at the University of Scildan, Professor Rogers was already known to the graduate students in Bucky’s cohort to be a confrontational asshole. So Bucky really wasn’t looking forward to TAing for some young, entitled punk in one of his last semesters in academia—in an lower division class, no less—until he met the punk himself.

    Summary

    «Come facevi a sapere... che sarei stato io ad occupare questo letto?» volle sapere l'orco.
    «Perché l'ho previsto. Ho avuto un sogno premonitore la notte stessa in cui sono arrivato qui» spiegò con assoluta nonchalance l'umano «Ho visto che il mio compagno sarebbe stato l'ultimo ad arrivare e che sarebbe stato qualcuno... che attirava l'attenzione» s'interruppe e sorrise «Ti ho riconosciuto subito anche se nel sogno non mi sei apparso».
    «È per questo che mi hai fatto cenno di sedermi con te?» chiese ancora Thrall. Adesso iniziava a capire tutto.
    «Esatto. Ti avevo riservato il posto» dichiarò soddisfatto Khadgar.

    Summary

    “Luke?” Poe calls, the sound of the front door rattling shut accompanying him. “You upstairs?”

    Luke opens his eyes, glancing out the office door, but just raises his voice slightly. He’s in the middle of a sentence and the voice-to-text recorder’s still going — he’s going to lose the thread if he stops now.
