    Summary

    Jimin is tired.

    He's tired of the bullshit that is school, and he's tired of the asshole kids who can't get enough of pushing him around, and he's tired of trying to fill in for the father he never even fucking liked in the first place. And he gets that life isn't fair and all the shit, but really?

    But sometimes when things seem to be finally falling apart once and for all, it just means that they're unravelling into something new- something better, or at least that's what Jimin is hoping for when Tarehyung Kim, his stupid-pretty brother and his damn band, and some cute blonde kid decide to crash his life.

    Summary

    Around four in the afternoon on day two, Harry was dropping kisses on Louis' chest and heading downwards when he abruptly stopped.
    “I can move back here,” he said, propping himself up on the mattress with his hands.
    Louis' eyes popped open and he looked up at him, totally lost. “What?”
    “For a while,” Harry continued, the idea taking hold. “Hang out with my mom. Work on my script. Be with you.”
    Louis had already resigned himself to the fact that this weekend was a crack in the space-time continuum that would soon close, sending him and Harry back to their respective,
    very different lives. It would be a memory that would keep him warm when he was an old, old man – that time one of People’s 50 Most Beautiful had kept him on his hands and knees for two days straight.
    He wasn’t so stupid as to hope for more.
    “You’re crazy,” Louis scoffed.
    Harry’s eyes shone. “Am I?”

    A few weeks after Louis and Harry, *ahem*, reconnect at their high school reunion, Harry temporarily moves back home. Louis isn't sure he has the emotional fortitude for a prolonged fling with the man of the dreams.

    Summary

    When a foul-mouthed, seditious foreigner turns up at your door, what are the benefits of letting him in?

    So wonders Carr, a young man living in a bayside nation that is troubled by internal battles. In his world, servants fight against masters, tonging watermen fight against dredging watermen, and landsteads eye one another's oyster grounds with greed. It seems to Carr that the only way in which to keep such warfare from entering his own home is to keep very, very quiet about certain aspects of himself which his family would not be able to accept.

    But "trouble" is a word that appears to delight the new visitor. He is ready to stir up danger . . . though he may not be as prepared as he thinks to confront what lies within Carr.

    (Note: This is set in my Toughs universe, and nearly all the characters are my own. However, one of Maculategiraffe's characters has taken a stroll into that universe, with kind permission from Maculategiraffe.)

    Summary

    Harry is fine on his own. Really. He's doing just fine. In fact, he's lost fourteen pounds this month, so he'd say he's doing pretty great, actually. He's trying to lose the weight, he really is.

    Louis' not doing so great. He's starving all the time but his scale is laughing at him everytime he steps up. Everything is telling him he's too scared to get anywhere in life, but he's trying to toughen up, he really is.

    They're trying, just not hard enough.

    Summary

    “It’s just easy with him,” he says, tracing a finger over the Skinnygirl logo on the label of his wine. He loves that they still sacrifice their taste buds for the joke of buying it after all these years. “He’s so easy going, he can laugh things off, but he’s not, like, a pushover. Like one time, I tried to order for him at a restaurant and he was so smooth about interrupting and ordering himself. He didn’t make me feel like an asshole, you know? I don’t think the server even noticed. It wasn’t a big deal or a fight or anything like it would have been with–”

    “Louis,” Aimee finishes, tilting her head and watching him carefully. She’s the only one who really knows what a toll that relationship had taken on him. And not just the breakup, but how hard it had been for Nick to always feel like a consolation prize, some kind of runner up. Second best. Story of his fucking life.

    Until recently.

    Spring 2021. Four years after breaking up with Louis and moving to New York with his best friend Aimee, Nick runs into Niall and they start dating. When their relationship gets serious, Nick struggles to tell Niall how much he means to him.
