    Summary

    Is it vain to write your main character as a writer? I guess it’s just like naming them after yourself. So, that would make the answer: yes. But does anyone write for any purpose other than vanity? Putting their thoughts and ideas on a page is first and foremost for the writer themselves. Purely selfish. Selfishness is a part of humanity, letting oneself feel joy, despite whatever responsibilities or consequences.

     

     

     

    Or where Louis skips classes and tries to write. Zayn wants him to stop sleeping with his sister. Harry publishes books and wants to help. Liam is kind of there. Niall just likes making fun of them all.

    Summary

    Eren Jaeger's life finally takes a turn for the better and he lands his dream job at one of the most esteemed publishing houses. Just when he is convinced that his days of career worries and self-doubt are over, he is faced with an inconvenience in the shape of an ex who is a bit hard to get over.

    Or that story about student worries transforming into twenty-something worries transforming into more worries; constant flurries of "what am I doing with my life?!" mixed in with questions of love, and could something that once failed miserably and silently ever start again and actually succeed?

    Summary

    Matt is an author looking for a lucky break, Jeremy is a technichian, and Kdin is not what he seems. But what does all this have to do with the long dead kings and the history of the kingdom? Maybe it's the history hiding behind Matt's eyes or the illegal magic that Jeremy is looking for. Maybe it goes deeper than just a handful of people and just maybe everyone is hiding secrets. But just how far does it go?
