    Summary

    “So what about the good guys? The singer-songwriters who make good shit and are still trashed by the press?”
    “I’m not saying it’s fair. I just think people eventually get what they deserve. You think your music is good, but critics don’t seem to care? Screw ‘em. Make music until fans are selling out your shows and screaming your name from the crowd. Eventually, the critics will catch on. By then, you probably won’t be concerned anyway.”
    Harry looked at him curiously. “If that’s how you feel, then why are you in this field?”
    Louis shrugged. "I care about music. I like writing, but I’m shit at playing instruments. This was the compromise.”
    “Becoming the enemy?"
    “Telling the truth.”
    --
    Music journalist Louis Tomlinson will do just about anything to get a story he’s passionate about. Including spending a week on tour with the hard-to-manage rockstar-in-the-making Harry Styles. In the late 60s, every long-haired kid thinks they can make it in music, and Louis’ job is to figure out what exactly makes Harry so special. That is if he can get him to put down the bottles and guitars to answer a question truthfully.

    Summary

    Her fingers hovered gently over the steel blade of her old sword, rusted over by the passage of time, and yet familiar to her all the same. “You kept it?”

    “I kept meaning to give it back to you, but we were always so fleeting... just two ships passing in the night.”

    “It’s been a long night,” she joked, then they both let out noises somewhere between sobs and laughter as they looked over the room, which was full of the various artifacts that they’d collected. Centuries worth of countless possessions filled the room, covered the shelves, and hung from the walls.

    “This is every piece of the story we’ve written,” Ben told her, walking around to her other side as he lifted a framed photo of them outside of her apartment in 1922, and looked at it closely. “The good...” He gestured to the photo, then he set it down, and moved on to the plague mask resting on the table nearby. “The bad...” His gaze fell next on the candlestick, which had rested on a mantle piece in a French castle that had long since fallen to ashes. “And everything in between.”
    --

    Ben and Rey are rendered immortal after being struck by lightning at the precise same moment, and keep running into one another as the centuries drag on.

The parties, the hobnobbing - she needs to get away so she can focus on producing the next great English novel, instead of the trashy yet entertaining dramatic romance series she's known for. She's off to spend the spring and summer months out in the Welsh countryside to see out her fathers dying wish that she publish his memoirs, and with the hope that inspiration will strike for her next novel without any distractions. No, no distractions, whatsoever.

    None at all. Nope.

    ...Oh, bother.

    Summary

    “Well, guess we’ll have to move to Plan B.”
    Natasha reappears with a toothbrush. “I hate Plan B,” she states through a mouthful of paste.
    James crosses his arm. “Yeah, why can’t you and Stark play happy marriage this time?”
    “Because, my dear soldier, no one would ever believe I could be with someone like her,” drawls Stark, which gets him a bottle of vanilla-scented lotion chucked at his head. He dodges with ease. He’s not so lucky with the tube of lipstick. “That could have been open.” Aghast, Stark inspects his suit for any red smudges.
    “Just once I would like to kick back and relax while the two of you be the couple,” Natasha grumbles.“I mean, come one, it’s the 60s.”
    .
    .
    .
    The Man from U.N.C.L.E AU or the one where James and Natasha pretend to be a couple (again) and Stark has the worst sense of timing ever.

    Summary

    The opening to the castle is high and wide, almost tauntingly leading you into the dark empty hallway. Getting a closer look at the castle, it’s covered in hundreds of vines crawling their way upwards. The river surrounding the walls of the castle are accompanied by a plethora of aquatic plants twisting their way out of the moat. Some shining eyes glare from beneath the tranquil waves if you look hard enough.

    Yuta steps out of the van looking back at his group of friends, “C’mon, it looks like the caretaker is back.”

    OR a castle, a fortune teller and five nosy kids. What could go wrong?
