    Summary

    Sherlock Holmes is about to graduate from high school in midwestern America. Despite his intelligence, his prospects are bleak due to poverty, an indifferent, alcholic father and poor choices. One day, at work, he sells a riding crop to a handsome blonde Brit and his life is changed. He doesn't know what hit him - until he does.

    This is a story of a journey to love and self-acceptance and explores many themes along the way: drug abuse, grief, coming out, age difference, consent. Lots of sex but so much more.

    Summary

    "Ma io non appartengo a questo posto," insiste Louis.
    "Perché dici così?" Chiede James.
    "Queste persone sono tutte tossicodipendenti o alcolizzate", Louis fa spallucce.
    Qualcosa scintilla negli occhi di James.
    "E tu invece non lo sei?"
    ---
    Louis non si è mai sentito abbastanza. Per il suo patrigno, per il suo migliore amico, per la vita che avrebbe dovuto desiderare. Dopo un incidente che quasi gli costa la vita, i genitori decidono di mandarlo in riabilitazione, dove sarà costretto ad affrontare i suoi demoni. Sulla lunga e difficile strada che dovrà percorrere, Louis affronterà anche le verità che ha evitato per tutto questo tempo. La verità sul suo futuro, sulle sue relazioni e soprattutto sulla sua autostima. Perché prima di poter amare chiunque altro, deve prima imparare ad amare se stesso.
    PS: la storia non è mia, ma è una traduzione della storia di crinkle-eyed-boo (KimmieRocks) su ao3. Lei è stata solo molto gentile e carina a darmi il permesso di tradurla.

    Summary

    “Why are they all so tall?” Chenle hisses in Jisung’s ear.

    “I’m taller than Jeno now,” Jisung recalls.

    “Okay, shut up, not all of us can be as tall as you, Mr. Puberty-hit-me-like-a-train.”

    “It did not.” Jisung kicks at Chenle’s toes.

    “It did too! You got all tall, and pretty, and you have cheekbones now, and--”

    Chenle abruptly stops talking. Jisung is just staring at him, in complete shock.

    (Jisung and Chenle go to homecoming together. As friends.)

    Summary

    Life's not going right for Jungkook. His parents ignore him, forget about him, but point out the littlest things he does wrong. Not to mention his only and best friend died, leaving him to be completely alone. Well, except for Kim Taehyung but he doesn't matter.
    Taehyung's life isn't all sunshine and gold like everyone thinks it is. No one knows the real Taehyung, his very few friends only knowing what he's told them. He's also helplessly in love with a certain cold-hearted boy.

    Chapters are kind of short since it's back to school time. And some of it's unedited so sorry for the conventional errors.

    PLEASE DON'T READ IF YOU ARE EASILY TRIGGERED

    Summary

    Niall bit his thumb. “What if we fall out?”

    “We’re not going to fall out.” Louis bounced on his toes. “Aren’t you excited?”

    Niall shook his head and watched as the teenagers stretched the balloon out along the sun-warmed grass. The basket was on its side and it looked like an actual basket, the kind his grandma had in her living room. It didn’t look sturdy enough to carry anyone up into the air.

    “I said yes to make you feel better."

    ::

    When Niall joins his heartbroken best friend Louis on a hot air balloon ride for two, the last thing he expects to find is a bit of romance with their young tattooed pilot.

    Summary

    In his parent’s will, Donghyuck is set to inherit the family owned liquor store, all of his mom’s jewelry, an unknown but hopefully substantial amount of money, and as many of his dad’s souvenir salt shakers as he desires.

    He’s also supposed to inherit the haunted plot of land his father’s never managed to sell and that his mother has never allowed them to part with. A piece of land he’s now officially in charge of, what with his parent’s vacation and the season 5 premier of The Ghoul Guys featuring his property.

    But will aside, there’s a reason that land has earned the reputation it’s gotten. And like it or not, Donghyuck is going to find out.
