    Summary

    I'm not good with summaries, but here is the best I could come up with:
    When Jim is accidentally abducted as a kid he discovers that humans are not alone in the universe. No one believes him in his small town and thinks he's crazy.
    He looks to the stars, grows up and becomes an astronaut.
    After being overlooked for the first manned mission to Mars, Jim is sent to work in a secret R&D department.
    There, Jim meets his new boss, a weird guy that wears beanies all the time and doesn't like to be touched or to touch anyone. Jim swears the guy looks familiar but he just can't figure out where he knows him from.
    Jim then discovers that there are others that know the truth and even work to keep Earth safe.

    Summary

    Willas Tyrell doesn't really want to go down the Mayflower, Tyrion's pub deep in the more gentrified end of Flea Bottom. It's his local boozer, his friends pretty much live there, but he has important scientific research to complete and a cheeky half usually descends into an all-night session and rampant hang overs the next day. But Jaime asked Brienne asked Willas, and it would be rude to say no.

    Moral of the tale - never get drunk when Ramsay Bolton lurks with intent.

    It is the vampire comedy that everyone wishes hadn't happened. Raise your glasses, things might get a bit bloody round here.

    Summary

    “Prepare,” Thomas says and everything feels weird. Newt’s stomach turns cold. Does he know this victim? When he finally looks a the body, he can’t but just gape.
    “Well, fuck,” Newt says under his breath. Thomas nods beside him. Because on the pavement, next to the body, next to the signature “RH”, are for the first time something else too. There are four new letters, there are four letters to break pattern. Their serial killer are really starting to appear genuinely mental. And stalkerish. In blood, messy but readable, is the name “NEWT” spelled out.

    Or the one where Minho is a serial killer and Newt has the job to catch him.

    Summary

    Alex was just going to get burgers with his best friend Aaron, the way they always did when they had good grades to celebrate, but their evening is interrupted by an argument at a nearby booth, commencing in a bet from his friend with ice cream at stake: chat up the cute boy who just stood up to the bigoted douchebag and get digits.
    Being roped into a "ragtag activist trio" working to prevent a major nuclear weapons research facility from setting up shop nearby was most decidedly not part of that bet.

    Summary

    “I would give up now. Your way of painting is too hollow, and people won’t be able to find themselves in it. If you can’t connect to the audience, then you don’t deserve to paint.”

    -

    Bilbo ruins paintings, though he doesn't particularly care about the wasted effort. To him, it's all worthless if it can't connect to others, and it never has. Until Thorin.

    Summary

    When investigative journalist Charles Xavier is convicted of libel after publishing disastrous allegations against a wealthy corporation, he is faced with the choice of either losing the trial or revealing his greatest secret—his uncanny ability to read the mind of any person he touches. But his charges come with more than their fair share of consequences: in attempting to expose Lehnsherr Group for its involvement in sex trafficking, Charles inadvertently piques the interest of its CEO, the persuasive criminal Erik Lehnsherr. (Loosely based on The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo)
