    Summary

    Sorey was so looking forward to his future. He graduated from high school with honors, he has a loving family and great friends to support him, he had plans to major in archaeology and history in colleges he applied to, and he had plans for a wonderful summer. His future looked bright, and Sorey couldn't have been happier.

    ...That is, until a drunk driver took his beloved mother's life. From there, the world seems to fall apart all around him. Sorey can no longer live in Camlann, so he is sent to live with his estranged grandfather in the faraway town of Elysia. None of the colleges he applied to have accepted him, and he can't be with his friends anymore. All of those sudden changes would be hard enough, but with Sorey being autistic, it's extremely overwhelming. Now, Sorey is struggling to cope and deal with all of these circumstances, and he isn't sure what to do. Once he used to see everything with a smile, like sunshine, now all he wants to do is cry. He can't take all this.

    He may not know it, but a little helping hand from an unexpected source might be exactly what he needs to deal with the changes in his life.

    Summary

    Psyche had been taught love, now it was time for her lesson in pain.

    After striking a deal with the goddess Aphrodite, Psyche completed her three tasks to earn the right to speak to her God husband, Eros once more. But the chance was taken from her the moment Aphrodite caught her cheating and Psyche was forced to turn from the temple and away from her husband.

    Left to wander the world alone for an eternity, Psyche vows to make the best of a bad situation. With the help from an unlikely source, she finds herself moving on in life as she leaves behind her royal past for the future of a common individual and soon her pain just becomes another familiar friend.

    It isn't until her world is completely upsided by the arrival of her husband, Eros, who claims he had been searching for her for the last several thousand years and the painful memories slowly resurface. Will Eros find out the ugly truth of Psyche's punishment? And will she be able to reveal over two thousand years worth of secrets?

    A modern telling of what happens after Psyche completes the trials set by Aphrodite and veers completely away from the original ending of the myth.

    Summary

    This is my take on the first two acts of Romeo + Juliet, with Phil as Romeo and Dan as Juliet. As I'm sure you've already figured out, this isn't the traditional telling! It's inspired by the Leo/Claire version of the movie, but with a few twists of my own!

    I've received a lot of requests for more Dan and Phil, so here it is! The Dan and Phil fanfiction you didn't know you needed!

    If you like Dan and Phil, come check out some of the other Phan stories I have posted!

    “But hold me fast, and fear me not,” whispered Edward, pleadingly, his fingers tightening urgently around Oswald's wrists, “and I'll do you no harm. What am I?”

    “A riddle, from the sound of things,” said Kathryn. “And it did you all the harm in the world.”
