    Summary

    Allura Altea-Smythe is autistic. She struggles with social interaction, preferring to read and study rather than form friendships. Plagued by bullies slating her disability and her dads’ relationship, she grew to hate school.

    But sixth form proves to be a welcome change: Allura meets Katie Holt. Katie is kind and supportive, and proves to be the sort of person Allura has always wanted to know. Although she does begin to wonder if Katie’s feelings for her are not just platonic.

    But as Allura finally starts to feel like she fits in, her once stable family life is crumbling around her. Her ill father takes a drastic turn for the worse, her dads argue all the time, and her brother has a secret that threatens to damage the already fragile family relationship.

    Unable to cope with the changes, Allura is drawn to Katie and her ‘normal’ family. But when she discovers that Katie’s family life is not as it appears, she begins to wonder whether or not a traditional family is as important as many others think, and if who you are, rather than what you are, is really what matters.

    They are what happens when runaways and drop outs grow up. They are the thieves, the artists, the dealers, the strippers, and prostitutes. They are the ones with positive status, track marks up their arms, and not a dollar in their pockets. In this city where lives are bought and sold, they find each other, seeking a reason to survive.

    Summary

    A young man reflects on when he was twelve years old and reminisces about the good times he had back then.

    I'm writing this out of a mix of boredom, wistful nostalgia, and some mild frustration and the story will be told on the fly.

    Comments and feedback are appreciated greatly.

    Summary

    If you’d asked Otabek a month ago where he thought he’d be two weeks into his time at Penn, this was about as far from what he could have possibly imagined.

    But there he was: in the Gayborhood in Philly, with a group of gay and bi students from Penn’s LGBT club, watching a drag show.

    Summary

    Fifteen-year-old Yuri Plisetsky is the coolest kid in school – at least if you ask him – and he has a pretty great life. Except for the fact that his cousin, Victor, seems to think that they’re best friends. To make matters worse, his ex-step-cousin (don’t ask), Otabek Altin, has recently enrolled in a local university, and Yuri can’t seem to get a moment’s peace. At least he can set Victor up with his equally annoying neighbor. When Isabella Yang transfers in from a school in Toronto, Yuri and his best friend Mila decide to take her under their wing. And, well, it’s not his fault she gets a crush on the stupid jock in their algebra class. Yuri just has to teach them all how to be as cool as he is. That can’t be that hard, right?
    (A Clueless AU wherein Otabek is Josh and Yuri is an emo kid version of Cher)

    Summary

    There’s a new bag in the breakroom, which, Yuri figures, probably belongs to the new boy at the counter that he passed on his way in. His boss didn’t tell anyone they were getting a new employee but in the beginning of Summer kids are getting jobs in between red Solo cup parties and updating their Top Eight which means, in turn, the store needs some more help.

    Yuri put himself right in New Boy’s sightline, feet spread, asserting dominance. That was his counter to lean on, after all.

    “What’s with you, asshole?”

    --

    In which Yuri owns a flip phone, a MySpace page, and definitely doesn't have a crush on his coworker.
