    Summary

    Victor doesn't have a problem.

    In fact, he has the exact opposite of a problem if he's being entirely honest with himself. (He's not.) The cashier of that hole-in-the-wall bookstore was cute, but he wasn't the only reason Victor returned to Sweetest Reads early the following week.

    Or: Bookstore AU where Victor keeps buying more books than necessary just so he can continue to see the cute cashier again.

    Summary

    Tuesday-Thursday Noon 'til Nine, the neatly printed sign in the door reads. Thor breathes out a little sigh of relief; it hadn’t turned out to be as short a walk as he’d thought, and he'd more than half expected to find the shop closed already.

    Three small bells clink and jingle as he pushes the door open. There's no one around; just a sleek black cat stretching and yawning in a blanket-filled basket at the base of the counter. The store smells richly of ink and good paper. Beautiful.

    In a world. Where angels. And demons. Secretly coexist with humans. Accidents. Don't always happen accidentally.

    Dean Winchester was looking forward to his last year of high school when he found himself invited to a party being thrown by kids from the private school in town. A chance encounter with a pretty girl makes him the target of a jealous would be boyfriend but a cursed rabbit's foot turns what should have been a lethal encounter into the surprise of a life time.

    Castiel expected to slip through his last year in private school quietly, like all his previous years of high school, but when he's invited to a house party and runs into a nameless omega his life takes a wild turn. He wakes up the next morning to discover he's half bonded to his soul mate and only has five days left to find them before his time runs out. There's just one problem he doesn't even know their name.

    This Fall worlds collide in an epic Cinderella story: You're Not The One I Was Looking For.

    (PS. If you're looking for a fic with an epic romance and declarations of undying love: This Is Not The Fic You Were Looking For!)

    Summary

    In a shop, on a street corner, there was a bookstore. Not an old, dusty bookstore filled with sagging shelves and mishandled books, nor yet a bookstore that was one of a chain and cared only for profit: this was Bag End Books, and that means comfort.

    Summary

    Velichor vell·i·chor [vell’ēkär] n. the strange wistfulness of used bookstores, which are somehow infused with the passage of time

    Keith is a wanderer by nature and when he finds himself in someone's dusty old bookstore it's not much of a surprise. He picks up a book to read and to his horror it's some amateurs first novel. Its terrible, it's fascinating, its utterly brilliant, with characters so heartbreakingly human they almost seem real. But the worst thing? It's unfinished. Being totally above casual pettiness, Keith decides to write himself into the story and leaves it for the owner to find. Said owner is not best pleased but he has a duty to finish his story - and apparently now Keith does too. Keith is soon horrified to learn that the main character of the book is most definitely a self insert, and even worse - Keith is hopelessly in love with him.

    OR

    That one in which Lance is a wannabe Scifi writer and Keith is (willingly) dragged into his mess.

    Summary

    Lance is a struggling florist with a passion for poetry and coffee. Keith is a highly frustrated barista at the bookstore-slash-café a few blocks away. Their inevitable meeting causes their individual worlds to change forever—for the worse, obviously. The course of true love never did run smooth, but this is just ridiculous.

    title from the gambler by fun.
