    Summary

    "Tell me a story," Shizuo says. "To pass the time."

    Izaya quirks an eyebrow at him. "What makes you think I'm a good storyteller?"

    Your voice, Shizuo thinks. "A gut feeling," he says instead.

    Izaya chuckles, but then he looks up into the cloudless sky. "There's a story my mother used to tell me," he says. "It's about an emperor who owned groves and groves of apple trees, and wanted to find the best one..."


    It's their second summer of high school. Shizuo Heiwajima has found a summer job as a farm hand. Izaya Orihara is on a rare family vacation, out in the countryside with no people to watch and no internet access. Left with nothing else to do, Izaya decides to wander around the local apple orchard. Their paths cross, Izaya steals an apple, and Shizuo throws a wheelbarrow at him.

    Summary

    He pulled my arm back more before letting go of my hand and whispering in a voice that I would be unable to hear if he wasn’t pressed against me. “Now throw it, Ernst.”

    The rock definitely flew. Not as far or as gracefully as Hanschen’s had, but it skimmed the water like his. I held my breath and counted, one, two, three skips across the surface before it slipped beneath the water.

    “See. I told you that you would remember.”

    When Hanschen stepped away, I felt an odd sense of emptiness. Like I felt better when he was there, guiding my body like his own. I stumbled a bit to catch myself before I tried to lean back into his touch. Hanschen laughed a quiet laugh from behind me. “But you must’ve forgotten how to stand in the process.”

    Summary

    Jeon Jungkook is a self-proclaimed loveless, who thinks commitment is a prison to his own happiness, thus enjoys living sleeping around with strangers whose faces he forgets the next day, with no strings attached and a stick of cigarettes after sex.

    Kim Seokjin is a man with too much love to give, albeit no one to receive them, whose heart is withering slowly while he watches the man he loves embraces someone that isn’t him.

    Their paths crossed at the backstage of a theater, where Jungkook sees traces of red on Seokjin’s palm, as he coughed out blood and tainted flower petals.

    Jungkook watched him withered a little more with each passing day.

    Summary

    “To be fair, beheading, immolation, and stakes through the hearts kill most things, living or not.”

    But Rock Lee can’t afford to play those guessing games: not when a storm of the undead is brewing over his Konoha town, and definitely not when his friends are depending on him to get to the bottom of a mystery crawling with gang violence and vampire politics. When a new crew of vampires pops up (like so many morning-after pimples) Lee and the other Slayers are convinced that they’re the shadowy enemy they’ve been tracking – but will Lee learn to keep his feelings separate from his duties to humanity? And when the time comes, will he know where his loyalties lie?

    Summary

    In a slightly alternative universe to our own, the pop world of 1996 is on the lookout for the next big boy band to sweep Europe, after Take That has disbanded. All the hottest candidates come from Asia, after South Korea started the Hallyu wave in the late 80ies.

    Meanwhile, in a renowned music school in a valley in Central Switzerland, two groups of hopeful musicians, one Thai, one Korean, is chasing after their dreams of freedom, independence, music, fame, and, maybe, love?

    This story is a crossover between three different things. It was inspired by the fashion presented at #LazadaWomensFestival in May this year, which reminded me of the mid-90ies and its different youth subcultures. It also combines two fandoms - 2wish (who are the main characters) and the Korean idol rock band IZ.

    The characterisation of the Thai boys is based on the subculture their outfits reminded me of when I saw them on the catwalk.

    Summary

    It’s January, 1996. DOMA is in the works. The newscasters on WNET are inappropriately attractive. Clinton is trying to hold office. People can make phone calls anywhere, cordlessly, from brick sized phones. Credence Barebone has been freed from an abusive religious cult, and nothing makes sense anymore.

    They make for an interesting pair...to say the least.

    Summary

    (Hiraeth (Welsh) – a homesickness for a home to which you cannot return, a home which maybe never was; the nostalgia, the yearning, the grief for lost places of your past.)

    The Yugoslav Wars of the 1990s: welcome to hell.

    As Rey grows up in a country which officially isn't at war, even though its consequences are felt everywhere, she forms a strong bond with Kylo, an odd young man whose personal involvement in the conflict may run deeper than it seems. Years go by, the war rages on and the political plots thicken, and Rey must learn the difference between idealism and doing the right thing, discovering the price of personal happiness.

    Also known as "what happens when you take the Star Wars plot and put it in a real place, in a real time, in a real war." Comes with lots of swearing, awkward flirting, old characters in new roles, angst, feels, drama, fluff, all-round Slavic shenanigans, and references to some pretty cool music.

    Summary

    [“There’s this thing that you do,” says Alec, exasperated. “This power you have that makes you look indestructible.”

    “You know that’s not true,” says Magnus, his breath warm against Alec’s chin.

    “I do,” replies Alec, “But even then … there are times when I’m not so sure.”]

    --

    1992, New York, a city hanging on to politically-tinged Cold War feelings. Alec Lightwood is a Corporate - a superhero for hire - jostling with a secret identity, holding on to a sense of a normal life, and the fact vigilantes keep turning up murdered in the gutters with no explanation.

    Things can only get worse when Magnus - an investigative journalist - starts peeling back Alec’s carefully-crafted mask … and then there’s the mysterious vigilante with the power to move things with his mind who keeps turning up wherever Alec goes - Alec just can’t cut a break.

    A neonoir slow-burn superheroes AU about identity, truth, and falling in love without knowing someone’s real name (ft. everyone has superpowers because I couldn’t help myself).

    Summary

    Min Yoongi is the starplayer of his high school's basketball team, but nobody really knows who Park Jimin is.

Somehow, over the course of the summer of 1996, the two boys become best friends.

    Each month of the year tells a story about the pairs' adventures: a fun Halloween party with them dressed up as zombies, an unexpected New Year's Eve spent watching Home Alone 2, a horrible Valentine's day or them sneaking out to an underground bar in the middle of the night - just to list a few. But there's a place they always come back to.

    And that place is Elisabeth's where everything started.
