    Summary

    Allen and Joe are getting married. At the stag-do Ben meets someone he hasn’t seen for years, and if he’s honest, has had no particular interest in seeing again.

    But as soon as his eyes catch Ben’s, Ben lets out a small breath. It’s him. It’s the Gwil he knows. His eyes widen a little and immediately he realises that the other recognises him, too, with the way his lips tug up in a small smile.

    “Ben!” Gwil greets him, the small smile so familiar and fond that it hurts to look at. “You look good. Did you do something different with your hair?”

    Summary

    The mark had been there for nearly seven months, and every time John looked at it, he became more frustrated. It was one of the elaborate ones, a gigantic set of wings that curled around his forearm, and he knew once it was colored it was going to look amazing, regardless of what the color turned out to be. But his frustration came from the fact that it wasn't yet the red of eternal love or the blue of eternal friendship. It was still just a pale pink etching, meaning that his soulmate had yet to reach their twenty-third birthday.

    Or that they were already dead, but John was choosing not to think about that possibility. He really needed more positivity in his life, not more negativity.

    or: John and Bobby had a past relationship that John tries to forget. But Bobby hasn't forgotten it at all, and a chance meeting at the coffee shop where John works forces John to remember. John is still counting on his soulmark turning red and being able to leave Bobby behind once and for all, but there might be other plans at work from fate, destiny, and all that bullshit.

    Aizawa is a tired barista by day, and an equally tired hero by night. Life is exhausting, but he's managed to get by on copious amounts of coffee and five hours of sleep, until now...

    Hizashi has an urban legend to uphold: he's never been to the same coffeeshop twice! Well, that was true until he met the abrasive barista at the Extroverted Hermit. Even so, he can't let anything get in the way of his grand debut as the Voice Villain: Present Mic! His first order of business? Get rid of the hero Eraserhead!

    When Hizashi realises the barista he's taken a shine to is the selfsame hero he's promised to destroy, will he be forced to turn a new leaf or will he use the situation to his own twisted advantage?

    Summary

    When Magnus Bane returns to his favorite coffee shop after weeks of being out of town, he doesn't expect that place to be more packed than usual. He also doesn't expect sharing a table with a stranger and actually having a good time. And most importantly, he doesn't expect that stranger to be surprisingly funny, interesting and kind. But if Magnus learned one thing over the years, it's that life doesn't exactly ask for your opinion.

     This time, Magnus genuinely laughed. “I’ll drink to that.” He picked up his cup and jokingly raised it in his neighbor's direction. He took a sip and then placed the cup on the table again. “I’m Magnus, by the way,” he added, holding out his hand a little awkwardly.

    Clearly startled, the stranger looked up from his notes. “Huh? Oh…yeah, hi. I’m Alec,” he said, quickly taking Magnus’ hand and shaking it, almost knocking over his coffee in the process.

    Magnus smirked. “Nice to meet you, Alec.”

    Summary

    Between being forced into doing psychology projects that they don't want to do by their roommates, full course loads with group projects that have (ugh) assigned partners, and being the star player of the football team, college is a lot more work than it was set up to be. But hey, at least everything's better when you have a talking animal companion (and some unexpected, but well-meaning friends) at your side to guide you through thick and thin, right?

    (A light-hearted, multi-chapter piece exploring a college-age daemons au with the main cast of Bones.)
