    Summary

    Will Turner, recently fired from Starb*cks for sass and dumped by the mayor's daughter, is press-ganged into service for The Flying Dutchman, the last artisanal coffee shop left in the quickly gentrifying city.

    The Dutchman is literally...still The Dutchman. After the fall of piracy, the ship pulled into port and converted into a shop, under the tyrannical leadership of the still-very-much-an-octopus-man Davy Jones. Beloved by the city for their strange appearances, they've become a tourist trap and have managed to slow the tide of modernity through tax fraud.

    City Councilman Cutler Beckett is out for blood. Part-time realtor, part-time politician, he's determined to snatch up the prime locations of both The Dutchman and Calypso's Corner, the oldest bookshop in the city, run by the mysterious Tia Dalma. Nobody knows she's been living there for centuries, except for Jones himself--a secret they share.

    Projected 50k+ with overarching plot, EXPANDED LORE. A "what-if" timeline divergence if all the main characters besides Calypso and Jones were born much much later. Oh, and gay sex.

    Summary

    Steve had just about everything he could want, and he wasn’t even forty yet. A nice penthouse in Brooklyn, heated floors in all bathrooms, and a closet full of tailor-made suits. It was almost complete, but one thing was missing.

    A sub, preferably a twink. Maybe a partner as well? He’d also love to have a sugar baby to spoil.

    But Steve was too busy with work to jump back into the dating scene, as bringing Tony’s fantasies to life was time consuming. Had it really been a year since he hooked up with someone? It felt longer, considering he’d been active in the lifestyle for over a decade.

    Then came an encounter on a late evening, when he ran to the nearest store in need of paint. It was as if his thoughts were heard and the perfect match for him had fallen into his lap. An adorable twenty-something with beautiful blue eyes and short brown hair. Unfortunately they were about to close, so he hadn't had the chance to talk to the cashier beyond exchanging a couple of words.

    But what were the odds he was interested in kink too?

    Or: A customer comes into Taehyung’s bookshop one day, and she and Jungkook become friends. As the two get closer and closer, Taehyung starts to feel like Jungkook gets further and further away. Once Jungkook finds out how Taehyung is feeling, he’s quick to take him into his warm, familiar arms and tell him how much he loves and adores him while refusing to leave his side to make up for their time spent apart, and things easily start to fall back together.

    Summary

    Ben Solo knew better than to let himself get attached. He had managed to stay away from all the possible dangers his childhood and adolescence had taught him. Unwillingly, because he had most certainly not wanted it at that time. But he got it. And he was fine now, 3459 miles away.

    He had been twenty-three when he decided that passing to other people the knowledge of the one thing he was actually attached to and was sure would never ever leave him, was the way he wanted to go. And he had been twenty-seven when he started teaching it to another crowd of people.

    As a newly thirty-year-old, he was in the same place. He was still fine. The addition of challenging hazel eyes, odd hairstyles and a bright smile wouldn’t completely mess with the calculations of his life.
    That’s one thing he didn’t have to worry about.

    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

    "I've always been the good-time guy," Tim finally says. "At work. With friends. With people who want to fuck me. 'Tim's always good for a laugh, just invite him out every few months then never talk to him in-between.' 'Tim's good for a bonk. Don't worry he never gets attached.' 'Tim will take it in stride. He always does.'"

    Having always used humor and sex as a deflection and a wall to keep people out, Gerry knows exactly what he means. He can't say he has a ton of people who would drop everything to be there when he's hurting. Not that he would drop his own act long enough to actually ask for the help anyway.

    He realizes this isn't at all what he thought. What he's seeing right now is something rare, an overlooked treasure. His favorite kind.

    "People always want me around to be fun and then they never want to be around me when I'm like..." Tim gestures at himself, "this."

    Before he can control himself, before he can suppress the thought, Gerry thinks, I do.

    Followed quickly by, Oh fuck.

    Summary

    Steve's just trying to run a bookstore here.

    And yes, technically, that means he's trying to sell books, but his best friend--who doesn't even work here!--insisting that the hot guy who came in absolutely has to buy a book if he wants to get out of the rain is maybe going a little too far.

    And that's just the start.
