    Summary

    You know all that garbage you read in books that you love, but you know it's total crap and will never happen in real life? There are days when Suga knows all of it are lies, because in what universe does some person just show up out of nowhere and you find yourself falling for them almost immediately? But then he finds himself rethinking everything he's ever learned about fiction and real life, and starts to wonder if the cliches aren't so bad after all.

    I'll amp up the rating and tags as we get to those parts. And all customer horror stories are probably real. Maybe. Possibly. Okay, guys, you can’t make this stuff up.

    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.

    Summary

    By a small twist of Fate, Viktor and Yuuri meet in the Katsuki's secondhand bookstore 'Bound to Please'. Friendship comes fast as they offer something the other has never experienced before. As they strengthen and grow individually, they realize the other holds the pieces to make them whole.

     

    “And there’s your ‘Ode to Aphrodite’,” Yuuri said, smiling at the man.

    “That was somehow…” Viktor said, touching his chin with a lithe finger as he thought, “disappointing.”

    “Disappointing?” the young man echoed, confused.

    “Yes. I thought it would take all day to hunt it down. Spend all day in the store, poring over every volume in the place. This was the third store I’ve been to,” Viktor explained, “I don’t often get the pleasure of visiting used bookstores, but I like to make the most of my visits.”

    “Oh,” Yuuri said, feeling the tops of his cheeks heat in an embarrassing blush, “If you really want to stay, we can look for a book I know we don’t have.”

    Summary

    Limerence - the state of being infatuated with another person.

    Percival Graves was a man with a rather simple life. He enjoyed his job at the local bookshop, some days more than others, and he certainly enjoyed reading a good book on the side as well. So when he gets the chance to meet the author of one of his favorite books he's obviously delighted.
    .... Perhaps a tad bit more than delighted.
