    Summary

    Clint purses his lips, walking to the back of the store. “You like history?”

    “Not particularly,” she says carefully, dragging a finger across the shelves as she follows him. “But I would like to learn about it, I think.”

    (aka the AU in which Clint is retired from S.H.I.E.L.D. and owns a used bookstore in Brooklyn, and Natasha takes the wrong direction on the subway, and as it turns out, there are a lot of secrets between people who run from their past lives.)

    Summary

    No one expects Dean Winchester, the leather clad, tattooed and pierced, lead-singer of a band, to be a good father to his three year old daughter Elsie. He just doesn't seem the fatherly type. And quiet, bookish Castiel, who owns their local bookshop, doesn't seem like his type either, but that doesn't stop Dean falling head over heels in love with the man.

    Summary

    It’s the perfect day to cuddle up with a good book. The rain alternates between drizzling and pounding, as it has been for the last week. Anna built a fire before she left for her ukulele class an hour ago, so the entire house is nice, warm, and quiet. She also brewed a large pot of tea, so Hael doesn’t have to disrupt Hester’s nap anymore than she already has to for bathroom breaks.

    The only problem is that Hael doesn’t have any books to read.

    Where Hael goes to her favorite bookstore, and Claire happens to be filling in.

    Yeah, that William Thacker - former resident of Notting Hill, now married to superstar Anna Scott. Who is rumoured to be making a werewolf film in the UK with - guess who - Derek Hale...

    Is Stiles going to get to meet the crush of his life?

    Summary

    It appears that Jordie must have zero concept of how many people actually visit this bookstore, because Jamie walks in, the first Monday of September and Jordie is sitting in the lounge area, debriefing their newest ‘teammate’ (Jordie’s word for employee) on the book store protocols.

    Summary

    To keep making money for his family Marco Bodt works extremely hard at Titanic Books right across the street from Survey Sips were Jean Kirstein works slightly less hard to make money to afford pizza. Marco stares a little too long, and Jean notices. They start talking...with white boards. Jean,( who normally doesn't talk to people or wear pink on Wednesdays), begins to think that maybe this Marco guy isn't all that bad.

    P.S.
    Marco may be into a certain British chick flick involving Andrew Lincoln, and Jean may just take that into consideration.

    Summary

    Hermann Gottlieb loved his work.
    He loved his work because it was quiet, because it was respectable, because the people were kind and smart and respectful.

     

    Then Newton Geiszler, with the wild eyes and the half-scar tissue, half-tattooed arms, enters The Shatterdome, and things get confusing for the both of them.

    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

    Angling his body towards Castiel, he held out his hand and introduced himself. "Hi. I'm Dean Winchester, fourth year Psychology major with an English minor and currently contemplating the stupidity of my choice in adding said minor."

    Castiel slowly reached out and took Dean's hand before tilting his head back just the tiniest bit and looking up at Dean through long black lashes that only emphasized the absolutely gorgeous blue eyes staring up at him. Dean sucked in a sharp breath as Castiel parted his chapped lips and replied, "Hello, Dean."

    ---

    Written for a friend's birthday prompt: Little homey bookstore and I want Cas working there, and they can be college students maybe in their last year, and Dean needs to write a paper or something (I'll leave how they meet up to you). Cas's brothers Gabriel and Balthazar work there, too, and maybe poke fun at Cas or something?

    Kinda strayed a little, but I may write a second installment. (;

    Summary

    Jensen Ackles is used to small towns and finds himself lost in his new home, a bustling city. Here for college, the city doesn't seem to offer anything besides getting him hopelessly lost.

    Summary

    Louis was born blind, completely blind, leaving him with nothing but the absolute blackness that his lack of vision produces.

    Harry, on the other hand, is deaf. No sound can be registered by the two tiny ears his rowdy, chocolate curls obscure so well.

    The first time Louis and Harry meet, it’s sort of an accident.

    Summary

    Levi wasn't normally one to believe in silly things such as love at first sight, but when his steel-grey eyes found a boy with shaggy brown hair and perfect tan skin, he realized he may have to revoke his former opinion.

    Wow this is cheesy... don't judge me writing is hard

    Summary

    Castiel is a well-known gay erotica writer. Well, James Bartlett is a well-known gay erotica writer. Castiel Novak, however, is intensely private given his propensity toward the awkward. But his publisher, Gabriel, and cousin, Balthazar, are pushing him to finally do a book signing just as Dean Winchester, bookstore owner and not-so-secret fan of Bartlett, comes calling.

    Castiel, however, just can't quite shake his nervousness.

    This might not bode well.

    Summary

    Your housemate Suzy has a meeting one day, leaving you stranded in the middle of town on a hot summer day. You finally find refuge in an air conditioned bookstore, which is run by a few cute guys. One of them really sparks with you though.
    Author note: Any chapters involving explicit sexual content will be marked off and most likely not very crucial to the plot, that way you can skip them if you don't want to read them.
    Also, had to change the rating from Teen & up to Mature because mild sexual content in the second chapter. Rating will change to explicit soon though.
