    Summary

    When Simon gets offered a job at the glamorous, high-fashion Natasha Magazine, he can hardly believe his luck. But being assistant to the complicated, rude, and quite frankly beautiful Editor-in-Chief Basilton Pitch makes his job a lot more difficult than he expected. Especially when he accidentally-on-purpose gets emotionally invested in the world of gossip, scandal and family drama... and finds himself falling for his boss.

    (Basically, the Ugly Betty AU where Simon is SUCH a Betty.)

    Summary

    Aspiring author Elijah Bennet's entire world is turned upside down when he meets publishing house owner William Darcy. Despite being part of two completely different social classes, William finds himself drawn to the spirited writer - leaving him questioning his sexuality and values. But when a misunderstanding leaves them on opposite sides, gender is the least of their problems. Can these two men overcome everyone's expectations, and their own prides and prejudices, for the sake of love?

    A modern Pride and Prejudice with a big twist.

    (Currently undergoing mass edits, will repost as new chapters become available.)

    Summary

    He’s finally here in this lovely and quiet little beach cottage, and the rest of the year seems to stretch out infinitely before him. Time will pass, though, and it will pass faster than he realises, but in the meantime he will stop worrying about writer’s block and deadlines and not even having the foggiest clue what his next novel’s going to be about, and live.

    New York Times-bestselling author Viktor Nikiforov arrives in the sleepy seaside town of Torvill Cove to cure his writer's block. After encountering local wallflower Yuuri Katsuki at a party, he discovers that this mysterious dark-haired man has a couple secrets up his sleeve.

    And Viktor will be damned if he doesn't find out just what those secrets are.

    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’m overcome by a sudden heavy sadness. I can’t expect him to understand, and it hurts more than I dare to admit. I wish I could see the sea, the colour of the sky, the way he’s looking at me now. I wonder what he looks like. Maybe he has blond hair and bright blue, intelligent eyes. I wonder what it’d be like to be able to see him smiling, to be able to read his expressions. I don’t think I’ve ever wanted anything quite as much as to see Marco.

    “You don’t have to see to know, Jean,” he murmurs, and I feel the warmth of his hand resting on my shoulder. I know he’s trying to help, but it’s too much too quickly, too overwhelming. “Focus on what you can hear, what you can smell, what you can feel all around you.”

    “I can’t, I-I can’t. Marco, please, I can’t.”

    “I know you can.” His voice is a whisper in my ear, the warmth of his body so close to me making me shiver.

    He taps the pen against my wrist in a steady rhythm, encouraging me to take it.

    “I believe in you, Jean."

    Summary

    Victor stands on Yuuri's doorstep in the pouring rain with a bouquet of flowers. It's the middle of the night. The tall man is out of breath, soaking wet, and his eyes are red.

    Yuuri sighs, letting his ex-boyfriend in like the sympathetic fool that Victor knows he is. "What are you doing here?"

    He hurries to catch his breath and reply, but his mouth is dry.

    Victor doesn't exactly have an answer to that question.

    Summary

    Velichor vell·i·chor [vell’ēkär] n. the strange wistfulness of used bookstores, which are somehow infused with the passage of time

    Keith is a wanderer by nature and when he finds himself in someone's dusty old bookstore it's not much of a surprise. He picks up a book to read and to his horror it's some amateurs first novel. Its terrible, it's fascinating, its utterly brilliant, with characters so heartbreakingly human they almost seem real. But the worst thing? It's unfinished. Being totally above casual pettiness, Keith decides to write himself into the story and leaves it for the owner to find. Said owner is not best pleased but he has a duty to finish his story - and apparently now Keith does too. Keith is soon horrified to learn that the main character of the book is most definitely a self insert, and even worse - Keith is hopelessly in love with him.

    OR

    That one in which Lance is a wannabe Scifi writer and Keith is (willingly) dragged into his mess.

    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

    "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.
