    Summary

    “Ooh,” Liam hums as he pulls open the door. Getting in, he wiggles excitedly in the cracked leather seat. He stops moving after a moment, seemingly lost in thought. “Just imagine, only one more year until I can drive, too.” His words are quiet, as if afraid he’s said the wrong thing.
    “When you’re ready, I’ll teach you, babe,” Zayn says gently, flashing Liam a grin. When Liam’s put on his seatbelt, he zooms out into the street, making the car jerk at the sudden shift.
    Babe. Liam’s heart patters at the word, the newness of the syllables against Zayn’s tongue.
    Babebabebabebabeba–
    (Or a fetus Ziam, American high school AU [featuring shy, choirboy Liam, and a slightly older Zayn that tries to break Liam out of his shell, bit by bit]) (Based on the Tumblr prompt: Who likes to drive with the music blaring and who is too shy to sing along? )

    Summary

    "Fairview was the finest friend a man could have, and the finest battle-companion. I dared not risk doing anything that might break our friendship."

    On a hot summer's day, on a high hill surrounded by the enemy, the best battle-companion can turn out to be the truth.

    Rook and Fairview have worked alongside each other for years, first as officers in the navy, then as officers on a steamship, and finally as colonels in an invading army. Members of a nation where tiny differences in rank are considered all-important, the two men defy convention by treating each other as equals.

    But now their life-long bond is about to meet its greatest strain, when they are ordered to seize and defend a hill whose landscape is unknown, in the company of soldiers who may be incompetent or treacherous. Will Rook and Fairview's friendship remain by the end of the battle? Or will their lives take an unexpected detour as they struggle to survive on Spy Hill?

    Rated mature for violence. I'm serializing this novella weekly, but it's completely written and edited.

    Summary

    "This is the right place for you, boy. They'll school you here to be a right-standing man, one who can keep control over his actions, like any good man should. You just got to keep yourself open to learn and to grow."

    How far can trust grow, when you're in a place you despise?

    Arrested for a crime he doesn't regret, Bat ends up handcuffed to a group of fellow city boys and sent on a long journey into the countryside. He knows that he is being transported to a prison for delinquent servant boys, but what form will his imprisonment take?

    Tattooed with the rank-mark of servant, Bat must learn how to keep from losing his temper with the men who carry the keys to his freedom. But in the unbelievable world where he has been deposited, in which a genial master orders strict punishments and a servant acts like a master, will Bat be able to locate the door to his release? Which of his fellow prisoners can he trust to help him?

    And will he survive long enough to find out?

    Inspired by true events at a turn-of-the-century reform school, this novella (short novel) is set in an alternative version of the Chesapeake Bay region during the 1910s.

    Summary

    "The High Seeker surely could not know in full what Vito was thinking and planning. If he'd known, he'd have ordered Vito strapped to a rack."

    It was his duty to transform the prisoner's soul. But which one?

    When Vito de Vere is assigned a prisoner who is not quite what he appears to be, Vito must penetrate the mystery of his prisoner's unexpected appearance in the Eternal Dungeon, arrested for a crime that is no crime.

    But Vito himself is hiding a mystery from the other members of the dungeon. Increasingly filled with tenderness toward his vulnerable prisoner, can Vito accomplish his secret mission without sacrificing his prisoner?

    Boilerplate warning for all my stories.

    Includes an illustration by Everybery in the end notes. I'm serializing this novella weekly, but it's completely written and edited.

    Summary

    Louis stuffed out the cigarette and made his way over to the bar, blue eyes meeting green as soon as he entered. He smiled to himself as he made his way over to the three, amused at the confusion shining in the emerald eyes.
    “Louis Tomlinson.” he greeted reaching the three staffers, “You have a minute?”
    “Depends on what you plan to say?” Harry responded for the rest of them.
    “I want you to come work with Senator Lucas’ campaign.” Louis replied simply.
    “We already have jobs.” Liam replied.
    “Right.” Louis scoffed, “What you’re doing now is wasting your talents. You and Horan are brilliant. And Harry, here, is a genius who is being toted out to show off that he’s working for Cowell. Senator Lucas wants all of you, he’s in it to win, to rip the rug out from under Cowell. And you lot are the key to that. What do you say?”
    After a beat, Harry smirked, “I’m in.”

    Summary

    AU/Continuation, unavoidable spoilers. The story didn't end when the two finally got together. When dark forces emerge from the depths to threaten mankind, one will learn that she is more than who or what she thought she was. For when it was said, years ago, that one might encounter something not quite human at twilight, all present might be forgiven for not considering that the entity in question might be oneself. OC x natural born Pacific!Iowa

    Summary

    Eric sent you these?” Zayn asked, the name coming out like a slur. He stood, towering over Niall who tried not to cower into the back of the couch. “Where the fuck did he get them, huh?”

    “Hey, wait a minute, Zayn,” Liam said, finally. He walked around the couch and stood between Niall and Zayn, setting a hand on Zayn’s chest and gently pushing him back. “I know those pictures look a lot like you, but maybe Niall’s right and you and Eric just look a lot alike.”

    “Liam don’t be stupid! Those are pictures of me that I’ve taken. Those are all on my Facebook page! Some creep out there is pretending to be me!”

    or

    Niall is catfished by someone pretending to be Zayn.

    Summary

    “Hey, how are you?” Harry asked. He’d found that sometimes just a smile and a kind face was all that was needed to brighten someone’s day.

    “Oh, uhm. I’m alright. Can you validate me?”

    Harry chuckled inwardly, but decided to go ahead and take him literally.

    Or the one where Harry worked in a parking garage and he totally didn’t mean for this, the whole validation of people as well as their parking tickets, to become a thing. It just kinda...did.

    Summary

    This idea was borne of some questions I had from the start of The Man in the High Castle's first season over on Amazon Prime.

    Mainly; what would've happened to Audie Murphy in Philip K Dick's AU of the Second World War?

    Well, say hello to his AU alias in this spin-off. Featuring a few familiar faces, it will be mostly original character-centric.
