    Summary

    The paper cranes were Betsy’s idea. She’d brought it up to him in one of their sessions and explained that it could be used to help center Andrew during his depressive episodes. At first, Andrew thought it was an incredibly stupid idea. But as usual, Betsy was right. Creating something from nothing but a scrap of paper did help.

    Whenever Andrew felt too destructive, too angry, too hollow, the small paper cranes were enough of a distraction for him to get a grasp over himself again.

    Andrew is a high school student struggling to juggle his depression, therapy, and discordant family life when he meets the mysterious new student at Palmetto High, Neil Josten, a former runaway that makes Andrew fall fast. As suggested by his therapist, Andrew makes origami cranes to cope with the mounting pressures of life.

    Summary

    After college Andrew left behind both exy and Neil. Five years later, he’s built himself a stable life with nothing wanting. Sure, he hasn’t had a meaningful relationship since college, but he hasn’t found anyone compatible and he’s not overly interested in romance, anyway. He has friends, family, and pets; he’s not missing out on anything.

    Or so he thinks, until a chance encounter brings him back in contact with his unfairly attractive ex. As he and Neil get to know each other again, Andrew starts thinking that maybe, just maybe, he’s allowed to have it all.

    Summary

    Ten years ago, Neil and his mother fled from his violent Fire mage father, leaving the kingdom of Ravenar and his childhood friends behind. Now alone, his magic stripped from him, Neil finds himself a spoil of war, sold by the new king of Ravenar into marriage with the prince of Palmetto in an attempt to buy peace. Nothing goes quite as he expects: he regains his lost magic, makes new friends, and reconnects with old ones. But even as he starts to form a magical bond with Prince Andrew, a threat lurks on the horizon, and he must stop it before war breaks out again.

    Summary

    The sea has flooded the earth. Allison lives on a circus boat, floating between the scattered islands that remain and trading dazzling and death-defying feats for food from the islanders. Renee lives alone in a lighthouse in the middle of the ocean, with only the birds and fish for company. As penance for her past, she works as a gracekeeper, tending the graves of those who die at sea. A storm brings them together, but under clear skies they must part. When one of the Foxes goes missing, Renee joins to help. It’s meant to be a temporary escape, but Allison might be a reason to stay.

    An AU of Kirsty Logan's The Gracekeepers.

    Summary

    Summer smacks its lips and swallows Andrew whole in its oppressive heat. It would be easy to erase his existence from this shithole country, melt him down to a mere sweat imprint on a worn out mattress. That’s just how the story always ends, for the monster, the villain. Instead, he wakes a slicked tangle in silk bed sheets, limbs loose enough that he wonders if he’s finally managed to melt in. The sunlight burns; his wrists echo the sentiment.

    Andrew looks down to see red spider lily fingers poking out of the cuts in his wrists. He brings his wrist to his mouth, red spider lilies crawling down his throat, and bites the stems. It temporarily stops the growth, and yet does nothing to stop the pain. He probably should put every resource into searching for a cure. But, well.

    Or, the one where Andrew, Prince of Columbia, forms a binding Witch's contract with Neil, an enigmatic Witch on the run.

    Father won't accept anything less than the best.

    Nathaniel shuts his eyes and wills himself to a dreamless sleep. Or at least one without knives and blood and pain.

    It's the best he can hope for.

    ...

    Neil falls asleep easily, and he knows he has someone with him to battle the darkness back where it belongs now.

    Neil is thirty, and he is wrapped in his husband’s arms with two cats purring next to them.

    He fights his own nightmares, and he has his family at his side to help.

    He’s home.

    (Neil's nightmares and what happens after, ages 5-30.)

    Summary

    Andrew teaches modern literature at Palmetto State; he has friends he actually likes, a badass motorcycle, and a rather lovely collection of single malt scotch. He's fine. He's good, even. So what if not a day passes that he doesn't think about a certain blue-eyed menace with a voice like velvet and a penchant for Beatles songs that he knew once upon a time in juvie?

    Summary

    When his brother gets engaged, Aaron doesn't expect it to send his head spinning as much as it does. Marriage has always felt like a dream, or a nightmare, one he never thought either of them would be able to achieve.

    In that moment, Aaron remembers what he's always known, what keeps his head above water. He wants to be with Katelyn forever. That's never been a question. But marriage hadn't been brought up. For so long it was this abstract concept, a fantasy. He'd always reasoned with himself that it would happen, rationally of course it would, but now...

    Now Andrew has made the idea a reality, and Aaron has to confront his own wants for his future.

    Summary

    The first time Nicky meets Erik Klose, Erik pads into the kitchen, takes one look at him, and freezes.

    Nicky’s first thought is that Erik looks exactly like one of those boys you’d take home to meet your mom. Clean face. Tall, but not lanky. Some stubborn baby fat still sticks to his cheeks.

    His second thought is that only a boy like Erik would wear a t-shirt two sizes too big that says, I bee-lieve in you! across it in big, blocky letters. A cartoon bee spirals toward his armpit.

    “Ähm,” Erik says, and stops there.

    The life and times of Nicky Esteban Hemmick, a closeted foreign exchange student in smalltown Germany, and his journey toward self-actualization, absolution, friendship, and love.
