    Summary

    Akaashi always thought life gave Bokuto everything:
    fame, money, friendship. Eventually, even true love.
    What Akaashi didn’t know is that a perfect life always comes with a price,
    and now it was time for Bokuto to pay it.

     

    Or, less dramatically, a Circus AU featuring an untamed lion tamer, an acrobatic fire dancer, a mysterious master of horses, the world’s greatest illusionist and a guy who’s only supposed talent is to be good with animals.

    You’ll get lots of purple, glitter, magic tricks, lions, junk food, an epic seaside trip and a secret from the past that threatens to take everything away from Bokuto. Especially Akaashi.

    Summary

    Hanzo dropped his bags in front of the designated spot his contact told him. The crew was already pulling up colourful tents of enormous sizes and shapes, animals being unloaded from their cages off trucks. The elephants snorted loudly, as if in pain. He didn't want to be here, he wanted to go home.

    No, he willed himself. Clutching the piece of crumpled paper in his palm, he walked straight up to the man in a funky sort of costume, presumably, the Ringmaster and boss of this freakshow. He was only a few steps away before the man turned to look at him, glancing at him from top to bottom and grinned.

    "Mr. Shimada, we've been expecting you,"

    Human!Pennywise.
    1990!Pennywise/Reader.
    2017!Pennywise/Reader.

    The circus rolls into Derry twice-yearly. As a child, you were fascinated by Robert Gray, also known as Pennywise the Dancing Clown, the owner and head-clown of the circus. You never failed to turn up when the circus came to town, and you made fast friends with his son, a half-feral boy called Junior.

    You leave Derry aged sixteen, when your father takes a job in Chicago, but you never forget the clowns. Returning to your hometown as a young woman, you reunite with the Grays when the circus comes back…but things are a little different now.

    You never expected to marry your childhood crush.

    You never expected his son to declare his love for you, on the morning of your wedding.

    Yeah. Things are a little different now.

    Summary

    Who can blame them? Who can tell them they’re at fault? Who can condemn them for what they did? They were two children, living off of applause and empty praises. Garnering all the love they could find. And when the love they found was not enough they shared what little they had with each other. Yes, so it came to be, the sad little story of The Fire breather, the Dancing Princess and the Tragedies of Existence.
