    Summary

    --Alternate universe. A mix of the show characters, book characters (Solitaire/Radio Silence), and the comic characters all together (because I love all of them). Everyone is aged up so we can explore more adult situations. Everyone is in their early to mid 20s. Eventual SA situation/discussion, will put a warning on chapters that may trigger some people.--

    Nick is lost. He lost rugby, he is losing Imogen, and now he might lose his mom. He doesn't know where to turn or what to do. A late night walk brings him to a small bookstore with a tea shop. A warm light invites him in, while a pair of deep blue eyes drown him in new powerful feelings.

    Summary

    Nene has always loved being a Flower Shop owner on Aster Row. The other shops had a lot of bustling customers, but she didn't get as many making it a quiet comfortable place to work. With her best friend operating a clock shop just next door as well, it was practically perfect. But damn it, if that self-proclaimed star walked into her shop one more time, she might scream.

    Summary

    "That boy", Seokjin observes, watching Jungkook leave the bookstore with yet another ridiculously underpriced volume clutched to his chest, "Is going to bleed you dry."

    "That's odd", Taehyung says absently, gazing at his retreating figure with a dreamy look in his eye, "Seeing as I'm the one who's the vampire."

    Summary

    Zoro hurried down yet another street, searching for some familiar landmark. He knew it was pointless, though. No matter how hard he tries, all the tidy streets looked the same. He was not lost, damn it! He was just cursed to live in a town where every quaint street looked the same.

    Summary

    Emily had encountered a lot of vampires in her life. They weren't all that common in the States anymore, but she'd travelled enough that they weren't a curiosity for her. Of course, she'd never really made friends with one – that wouldn't have been acceptable in the Ambassador's eyes – but she knew what they were like. At least, she thought she did...then, she meets Alex Blake.

    Summary

    If there is anything Kaveh expected upon leaving his very warm and comfortable home this is not what he expected. And he certainly did not think this would happen in his life. Ever. Kaveh has decided that today is officially the worst he had lived in his 28 years of living.

    The blonde’s eyebrow twitched at the sight in front of him. The loud pattering of the rain did not stop, in fact from the sound of the crackle coming from the skies would not stop soon. The electricity had gone out and his favorite outfit got ruined by the rain because he forgot his umbrella.

    “It would be sunny my ass…In what world is this sunny?!” He groaned.

    Floweshop au except it is not really too much focused on the flowers (-w-)

    Summary

    Heather’s life is easy. She’s an only child, her dad loves her, enough to let her inherit a good sum of money. And she opens a sex shop.
    Her only rule is: Don’t fuck customers. That’s it! But of course, her two best employees, well, her only two employees - Billy and Eddie, just have to be horny.
    “Can either of you tell me why during this timeframe, both of you weren’t in the store?”
    “I was helping a customer out,” Billy says.
    “I was too,” Eddie chimes in.
    “With what?”
    “Demonstrating him…” Eddie mumbles, “how to use handcuffs.”
    Billy looks down and breaths out softly. “How to finger himself.”
    Heather sighs, utterly frustrated. Is it her fault that the two only employees she has end up fucking their customers?
    No. Absolutely not.
    Well, maybe just a little bit.
    Okay, it’s really all her fault, she should not have trusted them at all.

    Summary

    Castiel was content with the constant flow of his life. He had his brother Gabriel, had his coffee shop and the weekly book club meetings as well as a small but solid group of friends. If there was one thing his hateful family had taught him, it was how fast things could go wrong if he let too many variables shape his life.

    So when he met Dean, a gradual regular at his shop, Castiel knew he was trouble, because Dean was like a comet, beautiful but beyond reach.

    Ever since his father died, there wasn’t a single constant in Dean’s life. Moving on, never stopping, never getting attached to one thing for too long had made him a drifter for the past seven years. Being the only hearing person in his family hadn’t been easy with a father like John Winchester, so as soon as Dean saw an escape, he took it.

    Settling down to open his flower shop was anything but easy, especially when he met the elusive deaf owner of the coffee shop next door. The more he discovered about Cas, the louder the voice in the back of his head whispered that maybe Castiel was the person finally worth staying for. And maybe, just maybe, Dean was willing to listen now.
