    Summary

    As China's most popular and most charming young novelist, Zhang Yixing is living the life of his dreams. That is, until his editor and longtime best friend Kris Wu is assigned to Huang Zitao, EXO Entertainment's newest young author—and Yixing's biggest online anti.

    Once, when their partnership was still young, Yixing sat down and wrote a list of pros and cons of having Kris as his editor. He's since destroyed the list, more for the sake of Kris' ego than any other reason, but he has it memorized and constantly updated in his head. On the list of pros, in approximate order of importance: his ability to wrangle extensions from their publisher like water from stone, his almost-smothering attention to detail, his willingness to go to bat for even the most half-formed of Yixing's writing whims, his smile, and his collarbones when wearing a v-neck.

    On the cons: his almost-smothering attention to detail, especially when it came to Yixing's writing; his inability to let anything go, always acting like a dog worrying its favorite bone; and, underlined twice, his tendency to appear uninvited and unasked for in Yixing's private space.

    Summary

    "I haven't slept in two days, cause cold nostalgia chills me to the bone."


    Kirishima Eijiro was an author, currently in the midst of a crisis. He had a deadline in 5 days to have the first 5,000 words of his book written for review by a publishing company and he had about 600 words, a blank brain and some song he’s heard about 600,000 times playing over and over again as he lip-synched the words. He needed something fresh in his life, and speaking of fresh, a fresh coffee would help him too. He hadn’t gotten a full night’s worth of sleep at a regular time since he could remember.


    "I'll watch the night turn light blue but it's not the same without you. Because it takes two to whisper quietly."


    Kirishima, who is dead for inspiration and to be honest, all hope of life, meets a freelance artist in control of his life and that's where the answer to a gaping hole in his heart he's been searching for for years comes served to him on a silver platter.

    Summary

    Constantly on high alert, Genjo Sanzo, the egotistic president of Kinzan Publishing Co., had always derided the threats made on his life. Like hell he cared about that. Putting Son Goku, his ever-optimistic, ever-dogging assistant, in said harm’s way, however, caused the pompous man to seek and spill blood for the first time in his solitary life.

    Summary

    I believe Saeko's quote sums up this story quite nicely.

    “Don’t ever sell yourself short, you hear me? If you have something to say, say it. If you have something to do, do it. Don’t ever rob yourself of an opportunity when it presents itself.”

    Or, the slice of life/serial-killer/K-drama Haikyuu AU that no one asked for. What a strange combination.

    Summary

    I never planned it would get this out of hand. Writing always came naturally to me, something that was clearly my strongest talent all the way back in elementary. But millions of fans? Incredible expectations? The amount of fanfiction I’ve found on my characters is utterly shocking. I’m seen as the greatest writer of the century, and I just don’t see it.

    Noticing my confusion, one of the librarians calls me over. “Hey, need any help?” Oh man, this kid is cuter than the library. “The poetry, I’m assuming? You look like the type.”

    He’s wearing a burgundy cardigan and wide rimmed glasses, honey cinnamon hair poking out underneath a black hat and swiped behind his ears. “Yeah, could you point me in the right direction?” Am I blushing? Oh my god, I’m a millionaire writer, and I’m blushing at the saccharine librarian. I’m so uncool.

    Or, Pete's a writer and Patrick's a librarian who doesn't know he's falling in love with his favorite author.

    Summary

    Kylo Ren knows how to write a bestseller. All he needs is a good enough monster and a small enough town, a cast of people who are relatable but maybe not very bright, and an editor who will sit back and let him do his thing.

    First Order House’s newly-promoted senior editor Hux, however, is not that editor.

    Summary

    Though no one knows how or why, at midnight on a person’s 16th birthday, they get writing on their wrist, almost like a tattoo. This writing, whatever it says, has something to do with your soulmate. It’s usually something like the first thing they say to you after it appears, or an inside joke you two will have, maybe a phrase they say a lot. Simply a push in the right direction, fate’s little nudge-nudge wink-wink about what future you have in store. This is the story of what happens on Kuroo's birthday.

    (WARNING: Panic Attacks are included in this installment, but can be skipped if you read the notes at the beginning.)

    Summary

    Based on an AU prompt I have long since misplaced... something like: I’m a writer and your my character and wtf how the heck did you just literally climb out of my first draft?

    Sherlock grumbled as his fingers hovered over the keyboard. There had to be a better word than ‘engorged.’ Not only better, but given the fact that he’d used it seven times in the past three pages, alternative. Substitute. Interchangeable. Equivalent. Replacement. UGH! He snarled and rifled his fingers through his hair, shaking his curls loose and, hopefully, the cobwebs. He hated deadlines.

    Summary

    Steve is the managing editor of Les Vengeurs, a hipster, money losing publishing imprint in London. Nick Fury thinks he will win them a Pulitzer price. Tony thinks he is only wasting her money.
    Tony is a genius, philanthropist, egomaniac, mechanical engineer that sometimes has to don pretty dresses to go and instill some financial sense into fancy creative people that think money rains down from the sky.
    They both have cryptical marks on their arms. Marks that burn like hell once they shake their hands in polite greeting.

    Summary

    Eren Jaeger, soon-to-be college student, loves reading. His favorite author, Ackerman, is known only by their last name. No one knows what they look like, or even their gender. Extreme popularity seems only to make the author more secretive. But once Eren meets this author without realizing who it is, he eventually manages to break down Levi's shell of secrecy.

    But Levi, living a quiet life away from attention, has a much bigger secret than his identity. His own health is in danger, and only Eren can get him through his illness.

    Summary

    Tony Stark hasn't published anything since he was 25. As far as the world knows, the former literary genius hit a slump after his parents' deaths—a slump that's lasted five years—a truly tragic ending to the career of a man who published his first work at 17. When Bucky Barnes gets hired to be Stark's 'glorified coffee bringer' at Stark Publishing, it's as far as what he knows too. Tony Stark just stopped writing.

    Of course, that's not quite the case. So when Bucky finds a hidden manuscript on Stark's computer, he demands that he be allowed to edit it. And proceeds to fall head over heels for Tony as they make margin notes, argue over metaphors, and cry over deadlines.
