    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

    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

    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

    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.
