    Summary

    John is a freshly retired man with no ambitions, hobbies, desires, or... anything. To keep himself busy, he takes up a job at what should be a quiet, easy-going flower shop only to meet Merle Highchurch and send that whole 'calm retirement' shtick in the fucking garbage.

    He now has his hands full of loud coworkers determined to befriend him, battling wits with his boss who is his opposite in every way, and right, at some point, he starts coughing up flowers.

    An AU in which John works at a flower shop and contracts Hanahaki, a 'curse' in which the victim expels flower petals as a result of unrequited love.

However, when a child seeks his expertise in the school of magic he was once known for, Taako finds himself on an emotional journey that may be what he was looking for.

    It should work out fine. Kravitz is good at making deals, and this is no different.

    Summary

    "Taako starts to cough. It’s soft at first, the sound muffled by his sleeve, and he waves off the questioning glances Lup flashes him as they prep dinner for that night. By the end of the meal, he’s out of breath, and Lup feels dread pool in her stomach. She knows that if the wagon-driver finds out, they'll be thrown out onto the street without a second glance. She doesn't know what to do."

    There's a sickness going around, a fever that can kill within a few weeks if left untreated. Taako falls ill, and Lup knows there't not enough money to get him the treatment he needs. Luckily for them, a kind apothecary's assistant is willing to help them out.

    Summary

    *aka "his husband, his sister, and his brother in law."
    **aka "annoys his family"

    Taako is supposed to die on the 18th of October, 652 A.H. Taako knows this. Taako stole Kravitz’s calendar-slash-agenda and on 10/18/52, it is marked in red: “Take Taako home.” There’s an asterisk mark with the addendum, “buy flowers maybe?”

    Summary

    "Thanks, goofus," Lup said, ruffling Taako's bouncy curls until he protested before she slipped off the counter, book in hand, off to see Lucretia.

    This was what Lucretia needed — a wakeup call, a plea, begging her to come out and be a part of them. A quiet, breathless call to action to be in their family; Taako and Merle and Magnus and Davenport and Barry and her own fucking self all needed her. Lucretia was vital, a gear in their ever-running machine.

    They needed her. Lup needed her.

    Summary

    Refractory
    adj. (rih-frack-tuh-ree) 1. Stubborn or unmanageable. 2. Resistant to a process or stimulus.

    Kravitz, a young orthopedic surgeon, is thrust into what feels like a different reality when he meets psychiatric patient, Taako. In a strange flurry of events, he finds himself being drawn toward this man, spending more and more time in a department that he used to hate and becoming invested in a patient who isn't one of his own.

    Taako, an in-denial anorexia patient, is forced into a long-term hospital stay by friends and family who worry about his waning health. When he meets an attractive doctor from another wing, he begins to wonder if maybe this was the star-crossed love that he was always destined for. At least, that's what hundreds of episodes of Grey's Anatomy taught him.

    In other words, the hospital drama nobody wanted but everyone got. Updates on Wednesdays and Saturdays!
