    Summary

    Bilbo Baggins is the best selling author of “Happy Ending” (originally titled “The Impiety of My Mother's Love” ... but let's not get into that). He's got a great apartment, a great best friend, and an absolute prick for an editor. But just one more book, and he's out of his contract — and Thorin Oakenshield is out of his life. The only problem is… he's got no idea how the novel’s going to end.

    Thorin Oakenshield is an independent editor at the end of his rope. His publishing company is on the brink of bankruptcy, his father is ill, and his sister is a pain in the ass. He needs that stubborn little shit’s book to succeed. At any cost.

    Summary

    Based on an AU prompt I have long since misplaced... something like: I’m a writer and your my character and wtf how the heck did you just literally climb out of my first draft?

    Sherlock grumbled as his fingers hovered over the keyboard. There had to be a better word than ‘engorged.’ Not only better, but given the fact that he’d used it seven times in the past three pages, alternative. Substitute. Interchangeable. Equivalent. Replacement. UGH! He snarled and rifled his fingers through his hair, shaking his curls loose and, hopefully, the cobwebs. He hated deadlines.

    Summary

    I never planned it would get this out of hand. Writing always came naturally to me, something that was clearly my strongest talent all the way back in elementary. But millions of fans? Incredible expectations? The amount of fanfiction I’ve found on my characters is utterly shocking. I’m seen as the greatest writer of the century, and I just don’t see it.

    Noticing my confusion, one of the librarians calls me over. “Hey, need any help?” Oh man, this kid is cuter than the library. “The poetry, I’m assuming? You look like the type.”

    He’s wearing a burgundy cardigan and wide rimmed glasses, honey cinnamon hair poking out underneath a black hat and swiped behind his ears. “Yeah, could you point me in the right direction?” Am I blushing? Oh my god, I’m a millionaire writer, and I’m blushing at the saccharine librarian. I’m so uncool.

    Or, Pete's a writer and Patrick's a librarian who doesn't know he's falling in love with his favorite author.
