    Summary

    Dean Smith is bad at stepping outside of his comfort zone, at being spontaneous, at living. But he learns more at college than he expected when he repeatedly crosses paths with a mysterious, blue-eyed restless punk named Castiel. Set against a backdrop of bookstores and bars, concerts and cappuccinos, Dean learns that sometimes living is as much about the paths we don't decide to take as the ones we do. He learns that the ultimate question isn't 'How do you find love?' because sometimes it finds you, but 'How do you make love stay?'

    Summary

    "Castiel is all out of his calming chamomile tea because he’s spent the past week drinking it by the gallon (not that it did much but make him need to pee) and he’s been texting Charlie non-stop, looking for both reassurance and also someone to blame for this whole thing. It was Charlie, after all, who said it was about time he finally did it."

    Wherein astrophysicist Cas is baffled by society's arbitrarily assigned relationship timelines, and his childhood best friend and current sexual partner, bookstore owner Dean, is just mad that Cas beat him to it.

    Summary

    Bookstore AU. At Survey Books, 27 year old Marco Bodt is lucky enough to be friends with everyone he works with, until grade-A jerk Jean Kirchstein transfers from another store, and in spite of his bad attitude, Marco can’t seem to help but fall for him. Too bad Jean is oblivious and/or just plain stubborn, and everyone else thinks this is Marco’s worst idea ever. But in retail, you end up spending a lot of time with your coworkers regardless of what you want, and Marco will do his best to make every interaction with Jean count until they get somewhere. Or at least until Jean gets less awful.

    Summary

    Working in a bookstore was great once Aoba overcame his fear of heights and could manage the ladders he had to use on a daily basis. What wasn't great was the piercing-obsessed, coffee drinking, weird punk that his boss explicitly warned him of. What wasn't great was that his brother and eccentric coworker, Clear, seemed to be setting him up with said punk. What wasn't great was his best friend's obvious distaste for the teenager. And what wasn't great was that, despite loving books, Aoba had never read Dorian Gray before. Until now.

    Summary

    Jesus Christ, that's a pretty face
    The kind you'd find on someone I could save
    - "Jesus Christ" Brand New

    Ever since Lucifer rebelled and hundreds of angels fell, no angel has ever been allowed to interact with humans, let alone allow their presence to be known to humans. Not even guardian angels are allowed to reveal themselves to their charges, which isn't a problem for Castiel, at least not until he is assigned to watch over Dean Winchester.

    For years Castiel watches, but never acts even as Dean slowly loses everything; his mother, his father, the close bond he had with his younger brother, and any faith he had left. Then one night he sees Dean alone in the middle of nowhere, with a gun in one hand and a bottle of whiskey in the other, and decides that this is the one thing he cannot watch.

    However, Castiel is unprepared for what unfolds once he stops Dean from pulling the trigger.

    He blames Erica.

    Or

    Summary

    John sipped his tea in amicable silence with the stranger who had read him like a book and who, apparently, also read Portuguese.

    Mrs. Hudson walked by once or twice, but did little more than warm his tea and cast a sweet smile his way. This must be why the door to the shop didn’t read “book store” but rather “Mrs. Hudson’s Reading Room.” She clearly had a respect for the sacred quiet of reading.

    Alternate first time meeting fic. Written for the Springlock Gift Exchange on tumblr. Prompt was the simple and elegant "Reading". So in honor of that, I replaced Speedies with Mrs. Hudson's Reading Room. Then I waited for two men who never fail to meet, to make their way to one another.

    Summary

    “You’ve got to name the store,” Stiles says in greeting, stripping his gloves and scarf and throwing them at Derek’s head, “It’s not right, I don’t know what to tell people when they ask me where I am. I mean, what am I supposed to do? Give them coordinates?”

    “You could walk down the street,” he answers, “Tell them you work at Barnes & Noble.”

    ***

    Or, the one where Derek owns a book store and hires Stiles to do the business side of things because how else will he get Stiles to spend time with him?
