    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

    Daniel knows that he met John Sheppard because of maths.

    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

    in which college maths professor Shiro takes a break from teaching after an accident that almost lost him an arm, but in order to keep himself occupied accepts to supervise the maths class for the local community college. He doesn’t expect to find in between his new students Keith, one of the uni’s janitors (incidentally, the one he might have been crushing on for a while, to his TA’s amusement). Then it turns out the guy isn’t just good at maths - he’s actually beyond gifted. Shiro might be over in his head here.

    (Or: the sort-of-Will-Hunting-inspired AU you probably didn’t know you wanted.)

    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

    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.
