    Summary

    "Shouldn't you be with your girlfriend? The girl every guy would kill to be with?" Louis asks, sharp and bitter and then promptly sucks his lips back into his mouth and turns away, staring resolutely down the lifeless, dark allyway. He hears Harry laugh again under his breath.

     

     

    "Would you kill to be with her?" Harry asks, lips quirking.

     

    Louis quickly look back at him, his eyes burning into him. "No."

     

    or an AU based in the 1970's where Louis has a boring life, working in a little cafe in Prague when the city's most famous celebrity returns with a mystery boyfriend who isn't such a mystery to him anymore.

    Summary

    Despite his anger there was something captivating about the way the other sang and danced on stage, it was so beautiful and coordinated.

    Every grind against the microphone stand was deliberate, and every hand gesture meant something in Gallifrey.

    The slick bastard was taunting him.

    Summary

    The year is 1975. The Vietnam War is finally over, but a new crisis has emerged in the Australian Government. Yet young reporter Lapis Lazuli finds herself sidelined, sent away from the corridors of power to make a routine, unimportant report on a stolen diplomatic car dumped in Canberra's north. It should be a boring, menial job to keep her away from the 'men's work' at Parliament House.

    Except there's an empty folder in the back of the car entitled 'Woomera' - a simple name that will put Lapis on a collision course with the nation's greatest secret - and the shadowy men determined to take it for themselves...

    Summary

    "Hey Danny," John twirled around, his pink dress wrapping his legs as he lifted up a pointed finger. "You know when you try it once..." He warned.

    "Yeah I know," Dan grinned, his floral dress fluttering as he hurried offset behind Eric. John felt blush run to his cheeks, drag may not be funny, but it sure as hell looked good on Dan.

    Summary

    “Yeah?” came a voice from inside, muffled, “Who's that?”

    “Private investigator.”

    “Wh— I didn't do anything recently— oh, right.” There was a shuffling sound, then the door swung open. Hidan leaned on the doorframe, arms crossed over his chest. He looked Kakuzu up and down, then an expression of recognition came over him. “Hey, you’re that guy from last night, right?”

    Summary

    She shunts the car into a higher gear as she speeds up along the dirt road freeway, reaches out a hand to rest atop of Trixie’s knee once she’s able to maintain a consistent momentum, her foot pressed heavily on the gas pedal. Trixie taps her clammy fingertips along Katya’s clenched knuckles, entwines them with her own when Katya’s expression softens, her attention briefly filtering to Trixie, disregarding the empty road ahead.

    Her forehead is dripping with the heat - it’s the hottest summer on record, Trixie knows that ‘76 will go down in history - and Trixie lifts the napkin she’s been clutching for half of the ride to the droplets that skim Katya’s brows, fall to her lashes. Katya grins appreciatively, beams so that her teeth glint comically in the sunlight, and focuses her concentration back on said road.

    “I love you more Harry, more and more every day…” Louis replied, watching the way Harry’s curls bounced with each step he took.

    “I promise you…”

    But will this promise endure the ultimate test when Harry gets deployed, leaving his entire world behind? Will true love conquer all or will there be other barriers standing in their way?

    Summary

    Rey did not like Kylo Ren the first time she saw his band play, and she had no problem calling him out on his bullshit--wait... how did she not notice that he was a babe?

    Preview:
    “If you keep staring at him like that, he’s gonna think you’re a groupie,” Rose sniggered, stubbing out her cigarette butt in the ash tray on the bar.

    Rey tore her eyes away from the tall, dark, and handsome guitarist on the makeshift stage and eyed her friend with amusement. “That’s the idea.”

    Summary

    “We should make a wish,” Lance says, gesturing to the night sky, black fabric sprinkled with stars.

    “What are you gonna wish for?” Pidge asks. And then, to test her theory, “Keith?”

    “What? Why’d I wish for him?” Lance squawks, face flushing. “I was thinking more along the lines of good grades for our finals, not Keith Mullet Kogane.”

    Pidge hums, staring upward. She doesn’t want to make her wish, because it’s so far out it can’t possibly come true: a world where she can be a girl and a scientist at the same time, a world where her father and Matt aren’t stuck inside the web of a never ending war, a world where Lance isn’t so afraid to be himself. And so she just stares at the glowing pinpricks, blazing balls of fire light years away.

    (On growing up.)
