    Summary

    There, every morning, right in front of the door, is a pair of boots.

    Black leather with a thick heavy sole and a dozen pairs of eyelets, neatly placed together where Steve can’t miss them. So he can make a choice.

    Most mornings he’ll move them to one side, place them back with their various other pairs of sneakers and shoes and head outside to enjoy his first cigarette of the day.

    Today’s not most mornings.

    Summary

    Jiāng Chéng shifts again, clearly uncomfortable. 'Look, I did something very stupid and I know you will be too polite to laugh at me for it. But-' He drums his fingers on the table again, falling quiet briefly. 'My sister asked if I was going to bring someone, then Wèi Yīng got involved and I might have blurted out I was dating someone.'

    When Jiāng Chéng doesn't continue, Jīn Guāngyáo asks, 'But you aren't dating anyone, are you?' A creeping suspicion rises within him. 'And so you asked me here today to be your fake date?'"

    Summary

    “Kate, my TA, will be distributing the syllabus,” Professor Crane said to the lecture hall, nodding towards the back of the room before busying himself with his laptop, pulling up his own copy that was then projected on the large screen.

    Anthony turned in his seat towards the back of the room.

    That was when he saw her.

    (also no icky weird age gap/power dynamics at play here, I promise!)

    Summary

    Tommy didn't know what he'd done wrong.

    He had lived with this foster family for over a year now. He'd had a cake and party for his birthday, Christmas presents, he'd been included. But never once did Phil call him his son.

    He was never referred to as his child, never a real part of the family.

    So, he tried his hardest to get Phil to call him that. Even if it meant becoming something other than himself.

     

    ~ 5 times Tommy tries to be Phil's son + 1 time he found out he didn't have to try.

    Summary

    “How,” Steve clears his throat, “how did you tell Claudia? That you loved her?”

    “I left my failing marriage for her and asked if I could take her last name instead,” his mom says, “Really, Steven, it’s quite simple.”

    “I don’t have a failing marriage to leave,” Steve complains. 

    “Oh,” his mom responds. “Oh, Steven. Honey.”

He’s pulling solid B’s at Indiana State University and is working his way through his internship as a student teacher at a local elementary school.

If only he could figure out what to do with his feelings for his fraternity’s sweetheart, Eddie Munson.

    Summary

    “So let me get this straight, you’re called The Jadmani Quartet but only one of you is a Jadmani.” Leah points out.

    “Correct.”

    “Doesn’t that seem very big headed of you?”

    “No it just means those other fuckers have real boring last names.”

    “You’re kind of cocky you know that?”

    “Yeah? Then why’re you smiling so much, Sweetheart?.” Fatin winks.

     

    Or the one where Rachel drags Leah to a concert she really doesn’t want to go to but suddenly Leah is VERY interested in the whole thing once the lead singer walks on stage.

    Summary

    “Who the fuck are you?” Tommy blurted out, before he could think about what he was saying.

    The man’s brown eyes went wide, before he burst out laughing. “Well, that’s not the greeting I expected but, uh, I’m Wilbur. Wilbur Soot.”

    “You weren’t here yesterday.” He responded in an almost accusatory voice.

    Wilbur chuckled, looking around nervously “I mean, that’s usually how people work? They’re not in the same place 24/7.”

    Tommy suddenly realized how ridiculous his words were and backtracked. “No, I mean I’ve never seen you here before. This stand has always been empty.”

    “Oh! Yeah that’s fair, I’m pretty new.” He laughed, “I bought this stand last week, but it took me forever to set it up.”

    He nodded, still wondering about the keychain, the one with Wilbur’s picture in it he found the day before. “That makes sense. Welcome to the mall. Also, sorry about toppling your stand yesterday.”

    Wilbur blinked “You did what?”

    Or, Mall AU where Tommyinnit is homeless, hiding from foster care, and trying desperately to ignore both a stalker, a haunting, and his own crushing loneliness.

    Summary

    Regulus hates his brother—this is fact—and as his best friend, Remus would never betray him by falling in love with aforementioned brother.

    Sirius hates his entire family—this is also fact—and as his best friend, James would never betray him by falling in love with a member of it.

    The problem is, none of them are even aware that it's happening.
