    Summary

    When corporate bullshit threatened his love of the stage, writer and Creative Director Graham McTavish walked away from all the comforts his former position afforded him. With no funds, a tiny stage, and a handful of actors hoping to find employ elsewhere, putting up an original play in time for a competition seemed like a lost cause.

    Finding the perfect man to play his male lead provided some relief, although it also brought an entirely new set of complications. Not the least of which was: how could he convince Richard to join him?

    Summary

    "They didn’t know what to make of each other. There was Kyle, who seemed as though he might be on meth, Dan, who had the strangest hair any of them had seen outside of a film (and Will had seen shit), Woody, who looked like the schoolyard bully all grown up, and Will. Will looked like Will, there was no other way to describe him.

    When they opened the door to their new home for two months, they all realized how in over their heads they actually were."

    Summary

    Jean doesn't mind his job at the Opera Populaire. Sure, he doesn't love it, but he doesn't hate it either. Honestly.

    He could deal with the antics of the gossipy ballerinas, and the tantrums of Levi, the opera's primadonna. He could perhaps even cope with the insufferable attitude of the parimadonna's protege, Jaeger. All of that just sort of comes with the territory.

    If only it weren't for the ridiculous superstitions of the cast. Really, who could ever believe in something as silly as an opera ghost?

    ...

    The Phantom of the Opera AU in which Marco tries (and fails) to woo Jean with his mysterious phantomly ways, and Jean just wants everything to run smoothly for one damn time.

    Yup.
    You're Dirk Strider and your holiday just got a lot more complicated.

    Summary

    "The thing is, Stiles has no interest whatsoever in going on a TV dating show. Deep down, in his heart of hearts - and publicly, to anyone who is foolish enough to bring up the topic - Stiles thinks it's kind of pathetic. Because it's all fake, for starters, like all "reality" TV is fake, but also he thinks the people who go on those shows are more interested in attention than love, so what's the point? It's like narcissistic masturbation with some television exhibitionism thrown in for good measure. And letting the entire nation - nay, the world - mock your lack of pick-up prowess? Noooo thank you."
