    Summary

    Rey Sanders of Resistance Books squares up against business rival and CEO of First Order Pages, Kylo Ren. What neither of them realize is that their rivalry comes second to their anonymous online romances—with each other.

    A You’ve Got Mail Reylo AU in which Rey is not as delicate as Meg Ryan, Kylo is not as charming as Tom Hanks, but their chemistry (online and off) is just as ridiculous.

    Summary

    It's this fucker again.

    Sidling up to the counter with his hands in his pockets, sporting yet another horrifyingly vivid Hawaiian shirt (this one is red and green with palm fronds and coconuts). The shirt is paired with leggings, of all things.

    Sliding one (one!) pack of hot tamales onto the loading bar. Smiling with those stupidly sharp teeth as he chirps "Check-out, please!"

    Summary

    “How the actual shit did you manage to confuse a briefcase of flower seeds for a one with TWO FUCKING COMPACT SEMI AUTOMATICS, A LAPTOP FILLED WITH ENCRYPTED FILES AND A SHITLOAD OF CASH.”

    “And a couple dress shirts.” Jimin pointed out.

    “NOT THE POINT, HYUNG.” Taehyung groaned. “Fuck, now whoever this belongs to is going to hunt us down and I’m going to fucking die because my prints are all over that laptop. That’s how it always happens. The innocent best friends always gets knocked off first. And it’s gonna be all your fault.”

Before he can ask the stranger for his name, circumstance rips them apart; but fate or other meddling forces might just bring them back together...

    It all starts when Marya asks him to take care of her flower shop. Luckily, this is not, as far as he is concerned, a nineteen century Russian novel.

     

    (That part where he was sick, he’ll admit, was a bit nineteen century. But the next day was definitely normal.)

Sadly, even record stores need working lights. Cue Jared Padalecki, a tattooed, pierced, half-British, half-Texan master electrician.

    Incredible, right?

    But Jensen has Baggage and a few issues to work through. Can he move forward? Should he call Jared back?

    Featuring vinyl records, a Nat King Cole soundtrack, the use of text emojis, British and Texan accents, and numerous Portlandia references.

    Taking up gardening as a way to recover from addiction, Adam Jones lends his green thumb to the local nursery.

    Summary

    When every second counts, an otherwise inconvenient time might become convenient all the same, especially to a runaway artist who quite unsubtly makes deep-going emotions known to a timed presence. All it costs is the innocence of sharing a meal in a public place.

    At night, comes out a skilled mercenary that hides in the shadows, hunting down people whom he's paid to hunt or ordered by his boss. He's famous around to those who know and see his work.

    Summary

    Bakugou Katsuki is a reasonable man.

    He does not go out to party a lot, drink, or do drugs. He goes to class, does his homework, and browse social media as people do.

    How he ended up stalking an anonymous writer named Deku, he'll never know.

    Now if only a certain cashier will stop being so damn weird about it, he'll be fine.

     

    Passage:

     

    “Christ this is stupid...”

    Fucking shitty hair and his ideas.

    He claims I need to ‘get out and see what the world has to offer... and maybe get a boyfriend’, but what does he know? I’m perfectly fine in my routine: sleeping in, going to college, going to work, and being single.
