    Summary

    Ben Solo is the bane of bookshop employee Hux's existence. He moves all the books, doesn't put them back properly, distracts his fellow employees and never buys a damn thing. Hux has had just about enough of Ben's ridiculously handsome smile, his stupidly contagious laughter, his obnoxiously mesmerizing eyes. He's determined to let Ben know just how he feels--that is if Ben doesn't beat him to the punch with a confession of his own.

    Summary

    Helena dropped her head onto her arms in front of her laptop. “Write a romance novel, he said. It’ll be great for your career, he said. Bollocks.”

    Helena, finding herself at a spectacular impasse on her latest novel, decides a change of scenery should help her finish the nightmare of a book she reluctantly agreed to write.

    Myka has been contentedly living the laid back life of a bookstore owner on the Big Island of Hawaii.

    Perhaps a little romance is what is missing from Helena's romance novel.

    Summary

    People gave up on the gangster. Tsukishima doesn't think much of him either until he decides to skip class and go to the rooftop. There he is, staring at the sky. When Kuroo makes him join his biker gang, nothing for them will ever be as it was.

    Kuroo returned and noticed the leather glove that took him almost the entire day to realize was there. “You...that...you're wearing it?” he asked Tsukishima.
    “Clearly.” He couldn’t wait for Kuroo’s indecisiveness any longer.
    “Do...you remember?”
    “I do. I rem—”
    “Wait, wait, wait. Are you wearing all your clothes underneath this table? Because if you aren't, then this is a dream.”
    Tsukishima couldn't stop himself from turning red at his words. “I'm going to hit you. Seriously.”

    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

    “You keep bringing that up,” Keith mentioned, shifting in his chair so he was leaning forward, towards Lance. “Mine and Shiro’s relationship. Why?”

    He met Keith's piercing eyes and didn’t blink. He wasn’t frozen, not exactly, because he could read Keith’s eyes. Could see that he was only curious. Slowly, he let a smirk slip onto his lips and looked over the two of them. He moved to meet Keith, inches apart. “Would you like me to ignore your boundaries? I thought it was common courtesy to give taken people some room.” Lance whispered.

    Keith paused to look back at Shiro before gazing at Lance. He felt Keith’s eyes wander across his face, from his hairline to his eyes, nose, lips and chin. He tilted his head, eyes hooded and smirk present, “Fair enough.” He responded, leaning back in his chair.

    _______
    Lance's life hadn't always been lonely. It had been full of love and support at one point. It was due time he felt that love and support again.

    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.”

    It takes him a little while longer to appreciate the danger to his heart. By the time he comes to terms with his feelings, he's faced with a painful choice: to distance himself from temptation and retain his sanity, or go down the Norse rabbit hole after the one person he can't bear to lose.

    Summary

    Humming a curious note, she picked up the comic book, which featured a heroine in a red spandex suit covered in black polka-dots. The heroine was holding a small black thread and swinging across the buildings, looking determined at another costumed character. The character was also in a skin-tight suit, though she skated on roller blades and wore a helmet. The helmet-wearing character was reaching for the polka-dot character, an angry snarl on her face.

    A bright, curvy font declared yet another unusual title: "Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Chat Noir"
