Shousetsu Bang*Bang is a webzine for original gay fiction/boy's love oneshot stories, intended as an online, English-language text equivalent of one of those All Yomikiri Bimonthly Summer Special 100 Extra Pages!! manga phonebooks where every story is about the torrid romance of an ordinary schoolboy and his soccer club captain - or a yakuza boss and his faithful lieutenant - or the prince of an exotic desert country and the emerald-eyed winged youth he rescues from the sawtoothed sand monsters of G'or, self-contained in 30 pages and heartwarmingly predictable.
This Collection is the AO3 archive for stories that ran in past issues of SSBB.

Nicholas Larsson is pretty happy with his life: sure, he's a closeted NHL player in a relationship with a teammate who's got even more to lose than he does, but things seem to be going okay. Then the Sochi Olympics turn everything on its head, and Nick has to cope with Kolya's fear, his own uncertainty about the future, and the very real pressures of Russian propaganda law on top of the baked-in homophobia of so many hockey players.

Nikolai Mikhailovich Kudryavtsev has played for the New York Rangers for five years when he's asked to take on more of a leadership role. Balancing more media attention with a secret gay relationship with a teammate is a challenge, to say the least. It becomes even more difficult when Nikolai finds out he and his boyfriend haven't been nearly as discreet as they thought, and some of the team already knows about them.

Xanthos' full mouth twisted in displeasure. "I have been ordained to full priesthood within the Church since last we spoke, Thought-Captain. You will address me," and his lips curled up in a cruel smile, "as Father."
Cyrus didn't bother to hide his smirk. Xanthos had always been such a pompous little shit, and Cyrus was glad to see that even that hadn't changed. "My most sincere apologies," he said, lowering his head in mock obeissance. "Father." He let the word linger on his tongue like a lover's name, and kept his eyes downcast.

Only one of the beds in the infirmary was occupied, at the very far end of the ward. The curtains were drawn around the bed, and a lone medic stood in wait outside.
Darael stomped moodily three paces behind Commander Nigellus as they walked down the row of empty beds. He kept his cloak pulled tightly around him and stared down at Nigellus' heels, his expression carefully blank. A muscle jumped sporadically at the corner of his jaw. The infirmary was windowless and grey. Nigellus and Darael's dark blue uniforms were the only colour in the claustrophobic space.
Second Lieutenant Simenon has fallen gravely ill, and it's up to the 6th Company's mage, Darael, to (very reluctantly) figure out what's wrong with him.
