    Summary

    I started writing Reprise in November of 2015 after... well, I can't remember the details. I remember being hellbent on reading a good time travel AU, and not finding any that featured Ben Kenobi physically going back in time instead of mentally reappearing in the body of his younger self. So, naturally I decided to write one myself.

    If you want something done...

    I was fresh into a new graduate program, stressed, and lonely, and this monster came tumbling off my keyboard faster than I have written anything, ever. After I hit 100k words, I figured I should start splitting it up into easier-to-chew chunks. It's been my pet project ever since, and frankly, I did not know I had the ability to write this much this quickly. This story has taught me how to critically edit, how to cut chunks and rewrite them, how to listen to an editor (and voice of reason, thanks dear), how to use at outline, and how to plan a long, long plot.

    Ten months after penning the first page, I'm 230k words in and gearing up to start writing the third (and hopefully final) installment of this AU. Hopefully, it'll go as smoothly as the first two parts.

    Have fun reading!

    Summary

    They couldn’t be more different if they tried. Louis Tomlinson is 17 years old and in his last year of the most prestigious private school in Doncaster. Everyone who attends his school knows him thanks to his incredibly rich family, sassy attitude and gorgeous girlfriend, Eleanor Calder. If there’s one thing that completely annoys him, it’s that there is a poor community college right across the street.

    Harry Styles is 19 years old, and (once again) in his last year of college. He goes to community college in Doncaster. He never shows up to classes and if he actually bothers to, he’s either high or drunk; sometimes both. His skin is littered with tattoos and if there’s one thing he absolutely hates, it’s the snobby students attending the private school right across from his.

     

    Or a sixth form!AU where Harry is the fucked up bad boy with too many problems, Louis is the perfect rich boy with too much money and their schools are right across from each other. They meet at a party and that’s the last (and maybe the only) thing they need.

    Summary

    He’s not spent six years hanging his whole hat on sailing halfway to Dunkirk, he’s not plagued by the sound of Spitfires in his dreams. He thinks he’s rather moved on from all of it, as much as he can, and the guilt that hits him, when it hits him, is momentary, fleeting. There and gone like those moments when you’re alone, in the dark, and it occurs to you afresh that one day you’re not going to wake up, and there’s not a damn thing you can do about it.

    Usually he can bottle it up, store it away inside him somewhere it won’t come rolling back out if he can help it. He can’t today, only half his mind on Aristotle.

    The other half of his mind thinks the boy’s eyes were green.

    Summary

    By some strange quirk of biology, Starks have two soulmarks.

    This causes more than it's fair share of problems.
