    Summary

    Pete is a freshly qualified attorney working for Chicago’s Public Defender’s Office, a job he's done for six months and already thinks he might be starting to hate. Defending thieves, meth heads and weekend drunks isn't exactly changing the city for the better. Patrick Vaughn is an eighteen year old petty thief and troublemaker who crosses his path quite by chance one November morning. A fleeting and mostly inconsequential meeting, they don't even exchange a single word.

    So why does Patrick goddamn Vaughn keep showing up at the most inopportune moments? Why can't Pete get the kid out of his head? Why doesn't “inappropriate conduct” seem to be enough to stop him…

    Like Romeo and Juliet if Romeo were an idiot and Juliet had the foulest mouth this side of Lake Michigan.

    Summary

    There was something so awfully strange about him that I don't think I could put it into words if I tried. He was so distant, so out of touch with the world around him. He could stare at something, and stare for hours, but never really see it. It was like he wasn't living in the same world as me. If I saw something solid and definite, to Gerard that something would simply be present in his vision but, somehow, not there at all. It was as if he lived in a state of continuous dream, like everything around him was solid but malleable under his palms if he needed it to be.

    Summary

    How much can change after a month away from college? Drama follows the boys of suite L325 into their spring semester of freshmen year: Gerard and Ray’s rocky and sometimes odd relationship could work to Frank’s advantage if a figure from his past hadn’t shown up to rehash nightmares. Mikey and Pete prove to have a self-destructive relationship while at the same time being easily distracted from each other. And a third band appears to contend with rivals My Chemical Romance and Fall Out Boy. It’s time for the bands to fight for the coveted spot of main stage opening act for the college’s annual arts festival in April, while some boys fight for coveted spots in the lives of past and future lovers.

    (Or: the one where things get dark and lots of sex is being had. 2/3.)

    Summary

    The six boys of suite L325 are, like everyone else on L street, silly stressed out college freshmen. Drama passes the time even for the boys: Frank is pretty set on getting the boy he likes, Pete is pretty set on losing the boy he likes, and Gabe is set on fucking anyone that can vote. And the two freshmen bands gaining traction, My Chemical Romance and Fall Out Boy, are fighting for notoriety on campus. The question is whether their forward-thinking school full of gay kids and pretentious art snobs can handle it. And whether those pesky student loans were worth it.

    (Or: the one where Frank is an idiot, Gerard is an asshole, and Mikey and Pete need to just work it out already. 1/3.)

    Summary

    The thing about it being hot isn't really the actual heat. It's the sweat, and the walking in the sunshine after they've run out of gas because they were afraid to leave the highway and get trapped where there were more buildings and more potential to have their flesh devoured.
