    Summary

    Jungkook was a pawn that his boss could move as he pleased. For the past nine months, he had been working for Kim Taehyung: a calm, cold but terribly dangerous man. Kim Taehyung had built an empire in the shadow world. He had built a giant chessboard on which he was the King. His supremacy was the most important of all.

    And Jungkook was completely devoted to him, even when Taehyung's crown began to wobble, about to fall off.

    "At your command, sir."

    Summary

    Letters had always seemed more personal to Spencer. There was something about seeing another persons penmanship that made him feel more connected to the person writing the letter than a text did. Maybe it was the fact he could see the pressure in the pen or the parts that they rushed that made him understand more. And so, signing up to a pen pal service just made sense.

    Talking was difficult for Elizabeth. She never wanted to say the wrong thing or make herself seem like a fool. She did however want to try something new. So, when encouraged by her friend to sign up to the pen pal service the post office is offering, she gives it a try.

    Summary

    The City of San Rosé is split between the west district of Las Nevadas and the eastern district of L'manberg. For years, the two districts have hated one another and have been at each other throats for nearly as long as the city has been around. Tired of constantly trying to keep the districts from murdering each other on sight, the city's government threatens to end district funds and arrest them if they don't stop the seeming ever-lasting violence. In an effort to try and create some peace between them, The two districts try and arrange a courtship between two of their members: Wilbur of L’Manberg and Dream of Las Nevadas, both of which are not at all stoked at all at the news. But when The government Begins to pull some shady deeds they will simply have to try and figure out what's going on together. Will they learn to get along? Or will they let their hatred for one another create an even bigger divide between them and their families?

    Summary

    ‘You and I,’ Spock thought, isn’t appropriate for this situation, because I don’t know where you end and I begin. We are one.

    ----

    Spirk one-shots for 31 days (Spanning over a few months); on a mission to track my writing progress/improvement. Each chapter (under 500 words) will be a snapshot of Jim and Spock's domestic life - how it's been around the Enterprise ever since they bonded. Much fluff is to come. Enjoy :)

    Summary

    Nightmare lost everything. Everyone left him the moment he showed weakness, even though that was when he needed them the most.

    Killer stayed. Killer wouldn't leave him. Killer would always be by his side. He had sworn to do it.

    So Nightmares figures were gone except for the king and queen, had either defected to the opposing side or simply left. Dream clearly had the upper hand in this game.

    But nobody expected outside interference. The only question was which side they swear their loyalty to. Will it be the warm, intense sun or the cool, gentle moon?

    Summary

    “Nicholas went out with Thomas Levantis? On a date?”
    Seiji asked the question with the same unnerving intensity that he brought to his early morning practices, every bit as laser focused and pointed as his flèche, and the first Bon laughed uneasily, obviously unsure of what had changed, only certain that something had, and he was none too happy about it.
    “Well, yeah.”
    The other Bon, a bit slower on the uptake, gave a tiny coo, like a lovestruck dove.
    “Why, Katayama, were you hoping it’d be you?”

    Summary

    Osamu’s own legs twitch at the sight of it. His throat feels full of rocks, voice flattened by the weight of his own desire. He wishes the FIDE had some sort of standard banning intimacy between players, and shit, maybe they do, but nothing gets in the way of a match more than your brain being full of nothing but post-orgasmic mush.

    He can’t breathe. He clears his throat, loosens his tie, and undoes the top button of his shirt but nothing can take the pressure off his windpipe. It’s only the twelfth move, but his head won’t clear– a rolodex of Keiji, Keiji, Keiji flipping through his mind with no end in sight. He’s perfect. Osamu hates him.

    Summary

    [EDIT - 05/10/2021: IN THE PROCESS OF BEING HEAVILY EDITED!]

    [Welcome to the first instalment of "Institute of Reflections and Inquiries of the Seoul" (IRIS for short), my dark academia AU!]

    Jung Hoseok, newly admitted fourth-year student at the prestigious and selective IRIS, had always lived his life under the rules his parents imposed.

    Kim Namjoon doesn't seem to like Hoseok very much, which shouldn't bug him as much as it did.

    What's to happen when they have to work on an assignment together and try to understand the other just a bit better?
