    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

    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 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

    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

    Levi is a broken, grumpy, little man (not old though, don't assume) with sleeping problems and a never-ending wish for his best friend, Hanji, to stop trying to set him up. He wasn't interested in dating. That's why he wasn't expecting the attraction that he felt for the boy who stepped into his private office that morning. He knew though, that this brat was something else and someone he wanted by his side for as long as humanly possible. Will it be hard for him and the bright-eyed man to push away their pasts in order to stay together?

    Summary

    John Watson is attempting to write a novel. However, he's stopped fairly soon in his tracks by an unruly barista who just loves to stick his nose in.

    "This was John's hold on his lies, his livelihood, and his love that were trickling through his fingers. Now, there was no hope for any of it, and John was certain that he was going to remain in the clutches of the trickiest of fiends. Dramatic to the extreme; the only thing stopping him from getting what he wanted.

    Which, now that he was in the midst of it, was more than a little bit rubbish. In his opinion.

    And it had all begun with a small coffee shop, situated in Soho."

    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

    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.
