    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

    Sam never thought he would fall in love. Not the type in which the other person doesn't just use him.

    Sam never thought he would even make it in the FBI Academy in the first place. Not knowing he would later be a successful agent.

    Sam never thought he would sacrifice himself for someone. Not someone from his family anyways.

    He was so wrong.

    Summary

    Looking at something so delicate and stunning, Harry felt breathless.
    He was a bouquet of pain, secrets and wild flowers.
    He was renaissance.
    He was beauty.
    He was sadness and silence yet there was nothing silent about him.

    He was Louis, he was painfully beautiful and Harry never felt more out of place, more inadequate to deal with the complexity of an universe fit in a body of fragile sharp bones and soft tones.
    or
    an au in which harry is a pop star who meets pale ocean eyes and wants to drown because everything is unfair when you're world wide famous and meet the only person who's never heard of you and you have friends who have known there were angels walking among humans and failed to notify you

    Summary

    Cordelia found that there was an odd charm to secondhand bookstores that was often underappreciated. They were usually found hidden in corners, tucked away from busy main roads and those who would not appreciate them, as if they almost wanted to challenge those who sought them out to look where no one else thought to. Inside were books you’d be hard pressed to find physical copies of anymore, giving the stores a niche only they could fill.

    A niche that includes vintage romance novels.


    Seconds before she had just resolved to go search the shelves herself, the was a loud clatter in the back, followed by a cry of pain, then loud footsteps...and from the back door stumbled through the most adorable woman she had ever seen, as well as the most disheveled.

    Yuuri starts finding notes from a “secret admirer” tucked into books on the store shelves. Who might they be from?

    Summary

    Bucky had no way of knowing that Roger wasn't eight hundred pounds (which wouldn't matter to him) or several dogs in a trench coat (which honestly might be a bonus) or just a normal guy (which would be kind of a let down, given the other two options?). All he knew that the friend he'd only met through Whatsapp and Tumblr meant a lot to him, may or may not be unemployed and starving, and was definitely his real friend.
