    Summary

    It's the summer after the gang's first year of grad school and Lafayette is off to France, Hercules is off to parts unknown, and John and Alex are moving into their own apartment. With three months on their own and few obligations, they're looking forward to spending their days studying ghosts, working on their own projects, and being disgustingly in love. And that's certainly how the summer starts--hanging out with Molly, going to baseball games, having lunch with Alex's foster brother, and going on trips with von Steuben and his harem fill the first few weeks of summer, a steady stream of fun to distract them from the rest of the world.

    But the world has a way of getting in, and after John drops sharply into a deep depression, Alex is left to try and figure out what's wrong with him and why it hit him so suddenly. With their friends thousands of miles away and John alternating between refusing to get out of bed and putting himself in mortal danger, Alex struggles to get to the bottom of John's trauma before he hurts himself or worse.

    (AKA everyone has a shitty summer)

    Summary

    This wasn't the first time he had seen something like this. Over the last month alone, he had lost maybe an extra hour of sleep each time he stayed up to see just what she thought was so important at such an ungodly hour of the night and interrupted his sleep. If she was going to do so, he was going to see the spectacle!

    Summary

    Modern setting AU. Maedhros/Fingon. Maedhros owns a bookstore. Fingon is in grad school. Expect appearances from varied members of the House of Finwë. Except Finwë--he's already dead in this story. This is a modern take on how Maedhros and Fingon meet and develop a relationship. Obnoxious brothers, prying little sisters, echoes of canon and an overall need for this not to all end in flames.

    Summary

    One Fighter. One Sacrifice. One unit, one team, bound by a name written on their bodies. It’s a mark that distinguishes them from others, and to each other, for the purpose of engaging in magical combat.

    The idea is a noose tied with red thread, but a name cannot be denied. It simply is, and simply will be. Against all alliances and all reason, there is no fighting a name—

    —unless you don’t have one.

    A Loveless AU.

    Summary

    “Okay like first of all, your deadpan is way freaky and it’s going to take me a while before I don’t immediately take you seriously,” Stiles says. Then he smacks Derek on the ribs. “Secondly, you’re kind of a dickhead.”

    “Well, to be fair, you knew that about me already, and you’re still here,” Derek points out.

    Stiles huffs, then leans in to kiss his neck, then the edge of his jaw, then his mouth again. “I’m still here,” he says. “I’m not going anywhere.”

    Summary

    You can respect that your best friend is dating your bro (who is technically your father, but you're not acknowledging that part). Hell, it barely even affects you, given that you've moved to another state with your girlfriend to study for a doctorate in paleontology. Or it didn't used to affect you. Now Bro's acting weird and trying to be nice to you and you're pretty sure it's John's fault.

    Summary

    After his application to the doctoral program was rejected due to his incomplete entrance essay, Yuuri Katsuki scores a job running a small local bookstore. Sure, it’s not his dream but it’s simple with few surprises and little stress. That is until a world renowned Shakespearean Scholar, Dr. Viktor Nikiforov, stops in one day and reminds Yuuri just why he applied in the first place. When Viktor happens upon an old uncompleted paper Yuuri had been working on, he realizes just what a genius Yuuri is, and vows to help him not only get in, but graduate with top honors. However, just being Yuuri’s mentor isn’t really what Viktor had in mind.

    Summary

    It has been three years since anyone last saw, heard, or otherwise sensed Derek Hale. Stiles had no regrets about what happened between them, he just wanted to see Derek one more time, to ask him why he left. He had resigned himself to accepting that that probably won't happen. Until it does and everything goes to hell (of course).

    Summary

    “Riley grows up in academia, learns how to be quiet by sitting in libraries while term papers are written and rewritten, how to read by quizzing her parents with flashcards, and how to love in the too-small apartment she doesn’t remember by the time she’s five.”

    Summary

    Stiles doesn't mean to sneak into the Hale wedding, and he certainly doesn't mean to have cliche coat-room sex with the bride's uncle, but what had happened, happened, and it wasn't like he could just leave. At least, not until he got to have some of that cake.

    Based off the tumblr prompt "I crashed your family member’s wedding for the free food but hi there”

    Summary

    Bodhi Rook is just your average grad student, waiting for a bus to meet up with an old professor. Only, he forgot to bring a book with him, so he is forced to stare at the gorgeous, if a bit odd, stranger at the bus stop. It turns out the stranger is even odder than he bargained for. As is everything else.

    Summary

    "Yes, that Taeyong," Johnny said, and Doyoung flipped him the bird for no particular reason. It wasn’t an out of the ordinary occurrence, given the circumstances.

    Doyoung sputtered, "But I thought he was—"

    "He’s been contracted back here in Korea for about a year," Johnny said.

    Shortly after breaking up with Doyoung, Taeyong moves to America for a graduate program and a lucrative job opportunity. Life, pushing all the stupid little pieces together, brings Taeyong back five years later for a work contract-- and to partner with Doyoung in planning their best friends' wedding.

    Summary

    --“Where is my skin?” She gives Peridot a withering look.

    “I’ve hidden it.” Peridot asserts smugly, “just as the book says to.” She points to the fairytale book she'd been referencing.

    Lapis clenches her jaw, “Give it back.”

    Peridot shakes her head, “no deal. You’re MY servant now. And you’re going to have to-”

    “Wife.”

    “Make up for all the weird salt water, and as our servant-

    “Wife.”

    “Help with our study.” She finishes briskly, “wait, what?”

    “Didn’t you finish the book?” She snaps.

    “I mean, I skimmed the important parts, women come onto to land to play and then put their skin back on to go to sea, blah, blah, capture their seal skin.”

    “And they’ll marry you and bare you lots of children.”

    “Bare you lots of…” Peridot can feel the blood drain from her face.

    “Now, at least untie me. Wifey.” She smirks at her. Smartass.--
