    Summary

    Paul wasn’t able to process it before it was too late- the hot, scorching pain that crawled up his right side to his elbow. He was left gasping for air, leaned heavily against the wall as he shot without any aim. And it dawned on him- his time was limited now more than ever. He’ll never be able to experience anything he wanted to do because he was the socially awkward, ordinary guy that nobody reached out to.

    Summary

    When she doesn't know what to do with everything that she's feeling, Emma goes to the dance studio. Ever since she's had her bike, or, more recently, her driver's licence, that's how it's been. Sometimes she talks it out with Hidgens. Sometimes, when it's worse, like it is now, she goes into one of the studios, puts in her earbuds, and starts moving.

    She's not expecting the very boy she's all in her feelings about to walk through the door looking for her.

    She's not expecting him at all.

    Summary

    Emma's been dancing since she was three. She loved it, but that didn't really matter. What mattered was that Jane wanted to take dance lessons, so Emma had been signed up along with her. When Jane wanted to join the competition team, Emma was dragged in to audition.

    Finally, when she's twelve, Emma meets Paul, who's one of the first people to see her as Emma and not 'Jane's little sister'. She knows it's not Jane's fault, but being around Paul frankly feels incredible. He sees her as her own person, and he's funny, and he's cute when he gets all pink and nervous.

    Among the other things she hasn't quite figured out that Paul makes her feel, there's this thing he does that she can't quite explain, that not many others do. It's like... he doesn't ask anything of her other than her best.

    Summary

    Emma didn’t paint her nails often. She usually had a reason when she painted her nails, be it a particularly bad day, a fancy party, a life event that warranted nice-looking hands. Events she never anticipated that, as it turned out, warranted nail polish were; her and Paul's first date, their wedding, the night they finished all their papers to adopt a child... things she'd never anticipated for her own life. Yet there she was. Doing it. Celebrating it, even.

     

    an account of my own extended paulkins universe told through emma and nail polish.

    Summary

    It didn’t take long for Linda to realise that it was a knife that was covered in… blood?

    Surely not. Linda got a whiff of the smell around her once more. God, it smelled like a rotten corpse.

    Linda froze. No, this was her mind messing with her. She began pulling at the leash again but Honey would not budge. Linda walked closer to the dog so that she could pick her up instead when she finally saw what Honey had been so interested in.

    “Holy shit!!”

    -

    Linda finds Stanley’s corpse and goes to Becky’s house to break the news. It turns out that Linda knows way less about Becky than she thinks.

    Summary

    Paul's coworkers and niece think he doesn't know how to flirt. Paul would beg to differ. He just liked to take things slow. If slow meant 'he learned her name after a month only because she told him what it was'. Most everyone seems to think that translates to 'no flirting'. He just needed to get his act together. Easier said than done.

    It's been six years since the last time Charlotte has seen Ted when she hears from him over a voicemail on her old phone she hasn't touched in a long time.

    And then another.

    And another.

    And then a few more, until she isn't sure what to think anymore.

    Summary

    Emma had never been a ‘kids’ kind of person. She’d always said she didn’t want kids, and she’d always been patted on the shoulder in a grossly dehumanizing way and told that someday she’d change her mind. She’d never thought that… she would actually reconsider?

    my take on trying to make paulkins kids plausible because i'm soft for them and they're my comfort parental characters, so.

    Summary

    'Fiancee' was a weird word. Emma never thought anyone would want to be her fiancee. After she moved to Guatemala she could hardly keep herself together, how would she ever help take care of someone else? But there's something about that Paul Matthews. He makes marriage seem nice, rather than a deathtrap. Maybe Emma's good for something after all.

    a kinda-sequel to my other paulkins one-shot, but it can stand alone but for some random mentions about a ring pop which isn't plot relevant, you don't have to read the first for this to make sense :).

    Summary

    When a new barista began working at the coffee shop a few blocks down, Melissa had no idea what she was getting herself into. Having to see this new barista every morning would be a gift from above, if she wasn't so terrified of talking to her.

    Emma, finally getting her life together, takes a shitty job at a coffee shop. And one customer comes in every morning. She's very cute, but she never says anything.

    Coffee Shop/No Apotheosis AU involving a crabby barista and a timid secretary.
