    Summary

    Because college sucks and he's broke, Lance winds up working at the Comet-Mart, a convenience store that may or may not be the death of him. It pays decently and since it's never busy, he can study and attempt to be a good student. So things are all fine and good, that is until some dude with a mullet and a bad attitude decides to come in and be a complete jerk.

    filled with sexual desire; lustful.
    "concupiscent dreams"

    Weathering a professional crisis back in New York shortly after managing a personal one, Natasha Romanov finds herself back at a familiar nexus: her emotional dysfunction causing trouble in her recently upended world. Freshly thirty and still no closer to having answers about her internal struggles, Nat makes a decision to undertake the emotional work to figure out once and for all what exactly keeps her at arm's length from everyone else. Join us as Natasha navigates her failures in love and burgeoning opportunities, managing a successful sex toy company on two coasts, and does some of the hardest exploration of all: the ups, downs, upside-downs, on tops and from behinds of just what in the hell goes on inside of our own heads and hearts.

     

    Alternately, Sticks and Stones May Break My Bones But Whips and Chains May Force Me To Confront My Own Gaping Chasm of Existential Dread

     

    (Head's up - this is graphically, comically, unflinchingly, gynecologically sexual - just more leather this time)

    Summary

    “C’mon Lance, back me up here,”
    “I just want to say if it is true, fuck you to whoever is controlling me, but also thanks for the flowers.” Lance shrugged, putting his middle finger to the sky. Hunk put his face in his hand and Pidge cackled with victory.
    Lance decidedly stuffed a muffin in his mouth, making an exaggerated noise of pleasure just as someone walked in. Hunk tried to hide his smile and Pidge just cackled harder.

    Summary

    Logan Fray has been running his flower shop, Aster’s, for about three years now. He hasn’t run into too much trouble yet—other than the occasional presence of his friend, Roman Prince, who runs a Broadway-themed café across the street—and his life had been relatively quiet for quite some time now. That is, until Patton Sanders opens up a gift shop next door that prides itself in pun-filled cards. That's when Logan's life gets a bit...louder.

    Summary

    ‘Hello, my name is LAPIS’
    ‘Hello, my name is PERIDOT’

    Those were the words inscribed on the two girls’ name tags so customers could be introduced to supposedly cheerful-looking workers. Ironically, they’d be workers who did not give a shit.

    Lapis and Peridot are the staff of a nighttime convenience store that work in chiefly customer service. As they cope with long hours of tedium and their own company, joined by customers who BARELY show up in the store every night, they try to make their time exciting by any means possible. Starting off with getting to work late for the 7th time in a row.
