    Summary

    Man is not the sum of what he has already, but rather the sum of what he does not yet have, of what he could have.
    — Jean-Paul Sartre

    Dan Howell is an insomniac, a pianist, and possibly a modern day Nostradamus, as his twisted dreams seem to be pointing towards the destruction of the world. When plagued with such dreams he does what any sane and natural human being would. He gives up sleep.
    No sleep. No dreams. No end.
    Phil Lester is a humble barista who feels like a daydream and somehow manages to keep the monsters, which come with such twisted dreams at bay.

    Summary

    ‘I finished the book you lent me.’ Lexa said without turning. ‘It was actually pretty good.’
    ‘Thought you didn’t like romance,’ the blonde replied, playfulness seeping into her voice so that Lexa could sense her smile.
    ‘What can I say,’ she said, turning to face her. ‘I guess you just bring it out of me.’

    Summary

    Lance is the star athlete of his college swim team, and the best diver they've had in decades. He's a watercolor artist who's brilliant use of palettes and textures has given him regional recognition, often displaying his work in multiple student galleries. He'll never admit it, but he loves art museums and talking about technique and styles of art. He's an active member of his fraternity and holds his role as Vice President very highly. He gets good grades and works hard to be recognized - he even tutors English Literature to other students on Saturdays.

    He didn't know he'd be talking about conspiracy theories with an unknown number on a Tuesday night, until his phone went off at three in the morning.

    Summary

    "Every morning. Every single morning for as long as Castiel could remember. The man in the apartment building across from Cas’ –and the same floor (as their kitchens both faced the same way), with the dirty blonde hair and the deep green eyes, would always wake up at six in the morning and brew himself a cup of coffee with those weird and colorful cups he would always collect. He was always too tired to look up from that darn coffee machine to notice Cas, but Castiel sure as hell noticed him. With that bed hair that would decorate the top of his head every morning and Cas would pray for the attractive man to look up and notice him.

    Cas tried, and oh did he try, to stop staring at the green-eyed man, but after a while, it kind of became a reflex; to wake up, go to the kitchen, brew himself a cup of coffee and then just look up to see the man across the street from him doing exactly the same –except for looking up at Cas.
    Until one day, he did."

    Summary

    “I’ve only ordered once from you. How do you know that’s my regular?” Guren asked, his purple eyes challenging, even as he handed over his credit card and travel mug. “...And you don’t even need to leave room for sugar!”

    The blue eyed barista gave him an easy smile, taking his payment and filling his mug. “You seemed to be a bitter person, that’s all,” The barista finally replied, his smile unchanging.

    “...I should have you arrested for slander,” Guren muttered under his breath as he elbowed the man behind him who sniggered loudly at the barista’s comment. “I am not a bitter person.”
