    Summary

    2021.

    Notting Hill, London, U.K.

    Stede had a mid-life crisis and gay awakening simultaneously, which resulted in an amicable separation from his wife, a not-so-amicable separation from his father, a complete wardrobe overhaul, and the purchase of a bookshop.

    This left him more content with life than he had ever been, but also made him crave someone to share it with. He’d never craved anything before. 

    Los Angeles, California, U.S.A.

    Ed Teach shot to higher levels of fame than he’d ever imagined he would. He truly loved acting, but it became a chore when suddenly the whole world knew his face and he couldn’t ever let the mask slip, even when the cameras weren’t rolling. He missed home, he was tired, and he was just so bored.

    He needed something to change before he lost his mind.

    Summary

    --Alternate universe. A mix of the show characters, book characters (Solitaire/Radio Silence), and the comic characters all together (because I love all of them). Everyone is aged up so we can explore more adult situations. Everyone is in their early to mid 20s. Eventual SA situation/discussion, will put a warning on chapters that may trigger some people.--

    Nick is lost. He lost rugby, he is losing Imogen, and now he might lose his mom. He doesn't know where to turn or what to do. A late night walk brings him to a small bookstore with a tea shop. A warm light invites him in, while a pair of deep blue eyes drown him in new powerful feelings.

    Summary

    Jon didn't mind it. It wasn't like he hadn't been used to that grind, always on, always working. The only difference was where his work took him. He'd seen pretty well most of the world already. He didn't mind that his work now only took him down a flight of stairs.

    Summary

    When Tim Stoker came to Pinhole Books, it was like someone jammed a foot on the accelerator of Gerry's life. After a health scare, a wedding to his (let's be honest) soul mate, and the exponential growth of the shop, it's showing no signs of slowing down.

    Now, Pinhole is opening a second location, their beloved Fiona Law is retiring, and Tim and Gerry are bringing a new canine member into their family. But even good changes can be overwhelming, and Gerry finds himself dealing with old trauma he thought he'd left far behind him. Plus, Tim is unexpectedly forced to face old conflicts, which takes him places where Gerry can't follow.

    With all these stressors on top of the typical growing pains that come with a still-new marriage, Tim and Gerry have to learn to work through their issues together.

    It's either that or fall apart.

    Summary

    There are only a few things Actor Kim Mingyu really has to worry about:
    1. Making sure Soonyoung doesn’t murder the writer with a set prop
    2. Making sure his manager doesn’t murder HIM with a set prop
    3. Making sure a serial killer doesn’t murder them all
    Seungcheol would argue it’s highly unlikely he’ll ever cross a serial killer, ever, but the FBI’s crime stats would beg to differ.
    He could prove it with the right book research. He’s definitely going to the bookstore every day instead of memorizing lines for research purposes only and NOT because he wants to kiss the owner. Definitely not that.

    Summary

    Mickey Milkovich owns a small bookshop near the campus of Northwestern University.

    This story should feel like the perfect autumnal drink of hot tea, all lemony and sweet at the same time. Romantic, seasonal fluff with a guaranteed happy ending. There's no great plot, there's no amazing art, just a fic that feels like fall.

    Summary

    Sakura e Ino sempre foram o típico casal perfeito de contos de fadas, mas a verdade nunca contada sobre romances inigualáveis é que nada é tão perfeito que não possa ser abalado. Aos trinta anos, no que deveria ser a “idade do sucesso”, acontecia o que muitos - inclusive elas - achavam ser impossível. O processo de divorcio, iniciado por fatores que apenas as duas poderiam compreender, era como um balde de água fria em suas vidas quase perfeitas. Agora seriam obrigadas a lidar com sentimentos que ainda existiam e que provavelmente jamais deixariam de existir. Mas para elas, o pior processo era, sem dúvidas, o de aceitação, superação e cura. Lento, cruel e doloroso. Agora, com uma família desestabilizada, Sakura e Ino precisavam torturar a si mesmas com a presença uma da outra em prol da felicidade do filho. Em meio a correria de uma nova fase como mães separadas, a única opção que lhes restava era ter que lutar contra seus corações traiçoeiros ao mesmo tempo que o pior momento de suas vidas acontecia diante de seus olhos. Mas um dia teriam que contar para o pequeno Nico sobre sua história de amor com início, meio e… Fim? Ou, quem sabe, recomeço.

    Afinal, almas gêmeas deveriam nascer para viver seu final feliz.

    Summary

    “You’re what– Five? Six years old?”

    Tubbo was wary of the man in front of him. Sam had given him enough lessons of Stranger Danger, and he was not afraid to stand up for himself if given a chance. Even so, he kept staring at either the ground or the table.

    “Eight.”

    “Wait really?”, they ask, seemingly surprised.

    “Yeah. Mr Wilbur says I’m small because I don’t eat enough.”

    “Mr- Wilbur?”, They ask, cracking a smile. “I’m his friend actually.”

    Now, this is something Tubbo didn’t expect.

    (Yeah, Techno doesn’t know if he likes the kid or not, but he ain’t doin’ too shabby with his first impression.)

    “Mhm. My name’s Technoblade.”, Techno replies.

    “Really?!”, he whisper-shouts, lifting his head up so fast he almost gives himself whiplash.

     

    So THIS is what he’s up against?

    This is his COMPETITION?!

    HA! He’s an anti-social WRECK!
    All Tubbo needs to worry about now is how he’s going to be friends with him!

    ‘I’m Toby, but you can call me Tubbo.”, he smiles.
