    Summary

    Jonathan Sims enjoys his work as an editor for Leitner Press, even if it does put him in touch with a rotating cast of bizarre occult and esoteric authors (bug-enthusiast Jane Prentiss and flagship author and recluse Jonah Magnus to name a couple).

    Then one day, his publisher and mentor Gertrude Robinson disappears without a trace and is replaced by her boneheaded son, Michael. To make matters worse, Jon has been assigned a new assistant (who he absolutely does NOT need, thank you very much), Martin Blackwood.

    Martin has a couple secrets up his sleeve:
    1) His very undistinguished secret career
    2) His all-consuming crush on his new boss

    Summary

    “You’re like erratum texts on every draft you give me. It's irritating.”

    When Editor Nanami Kento received an email which contained a cute drawing of a male reproductive organ and a song for him that weirdly came from a certain jojocatoru_15@gmail.com, he felt highly irritated and sent an impulsive email back that its contents could possibly ruin his career as an esteemed editor. In retaliation, jojocatoru_15@gmail.com asked Kento to be his editor for one year in exchange for not revealing what he said through the email.

    Kento blocked him.

    Summary

    You've been desperately searching for a job. After all this hard work, you get a position as an author's assistant, to the amazing author known only by J. But you can only conduct that business through emails. The other part of your job is far less enjoyable dealing with an ever-annoying Kim Seokjin. A voice in the back of your head is telling you more is at play here, but you don't know if you'll be able to stand Seokjin long enough to figure some of these mysteries out.

    or, a silly enough idea that involves lots of writing and mentions of editing for the author is a nerd about that, but it comes in cute, shorter bursts of chapters, as this story would take far too long to write if the author wrote long chapters. Enjoy c:

    Summary

    One year after the bestselling, International Booker Prize-winning Double Black hits the shelves, burgeoning literary savant Dazai Osamu disappears from the public eye. His social media goes dark, his known residence is vacated, and, perhaps most significantly, he is taken off the Contributing Authors page of the PM Publishing website.

    (Notably, his coauthor, co-editor, and begrudging muse Nakahara Chuuya remains plainly in sight, with three new projects announced the week Dazai goes dark.)

    Summary

    Bakugou writes books. It's what he enjoys doing and he's made a solid career out of it. What he doesn't enjoy are the nagging editors at Yuuei Publishing that he's forced to work with. He never has one for long before he's successfully destroyed their desire to be an editor (they're incompetent anyway) or they realise he's not worth the money they make with his aggressive attitude and unorthodox "research methods".

    Then Yuuei launches an initiative that forces Bakugou to open his home to a new editor, Kirishima Eijirou. They're meant to live and work under one roof.

    Bakugou has no intention of letting that fly.

    Summary

    "Then why are you here?"

    Baz blinks twice. Snow's face comes into focus bit by bit like his brain's stubbornly refusing to place that voice (annoying, how it makes his poor heart race) with a familiar face (even more annoying, how stupidly stunning Snow is). "What?"

     

    (in which Simon and a drunk Baz have a very long corporate's Christmas party)

    Summary

    An artist finds her muse; but that was never really her intention, though. It was the poet’s; who instead ends up finding a little brandy to keep her musings at bay.

    Or, Amity Blight is a struggling artist by day, bartender by night. Her life seems like an utter shitshow until an aspiring-but-also-struggling-(maybe-even-more-than-Amity) novelist stumbles into her bar.

    Summary

    “Don’t be fucking stupid,” Diluc says.

    Sounds like Diluc Ragnvindr,” Venti decides. Then he brightens up. “Say, can I write a piece about you, not naming any names, of course—noble but struggling writer friend gives in and betrays his sense of integrity to make some quick cash by publishing erotica under a pseudonym on the internet—”

    --

    or: in which Kaeya Alberich is a prominent writer of erotica, Diluc is an opinionated "literary writer", there is some questionable poetry and philosophising at nude art modelling sessions and flower theft in the countryside, and at some point both of them meet in the middle.
