    Summary

    When Anthony Bridgerton and Kate Sheffield meet it is hate on first sight. Anthony encounters her in the hospital where she works as an ER doctor, tending to his thrillseeking brother Colin, who has picked up parkour and has injured himself.

    The two immediately get off to a rocky start and are glad never to see each other again but meet three months later on a wedding. That meeting is also a disaster but as much as Kate and Anthony try to avoid each other their paths cross repeatedly whether they want to or not.

    What's worse; Anthony's attention is drawn by Edwina; Kate's sister and he tries to pursue her for he feels she might be right for him..

    But is Edwina truly the Sheffield sister that holds the key to Anthony's heart?

    THE STORY IS MINE BUT THE BRIDGERTON CHARACTERS ARE NOT.

    I do not own anything related to Bridgerton; just so we are clear.

    "I will."
    "No. You won't."

    Summary

    "Tomorrow. Fourteen years," Patrick repeats, firm and insistent, and his eyes bore into Jonny's, the blue of them going hectic, bright, like they're trying to shock Jonny into realization, and—

    "Oh," Jonny says, lungs squeezed dry of air on the next breath, and it shouldn't feel so much like the world's been swept from underneath his feet.

    Summary

    If you asked Jane, she couldn't even give you an explanation that wouldn't sound like a bad rom-com. Yet here she was chilling on a sofa at Chris Evans' California home. You might be wondering how she ended up there. It's quite easy: being German who was only in Los Angeles for work and study related things when suddenly the world goes to quarantine with no flights back home, no hotels allowing her to stay and a colleague/ friend arranging a place to stay.

    Summary

    started writing this wee ficlet last month when the US supreme court allowed SB8 in texas to outlaw abortion, and I finished it this weekend as people protested around the US for reproductive justice. google 'national network of abortion funds' for info on how to help.

    May angels guard and protect those who administer abortions, at risk of jail, assault and murder. May demons torment those who use their power to deny abortions to those who need them.

    Thanks to Laura for cheerleading and improvements.

    Summary

    Charlotte Heywood works for the Office for National Statistics in England. Her current assignment is going door-to-door to complete the Census Coverage Survey. Luckily for her, Sidney Parker is one of the select few chosen to be part of this survey…

    Story posted in real time from 26 May - 26 September 2021.

    Note 1: All ‘current’ events in this story, including the vaccine rollout and other Covid-19 information, were an accurate representation of the state of play in England (not necessarily the whole of the U.K.) on the day the chapter was uploaded. Will much of it frustrate you? Absolutely. Will you disagree with the actions of some of the characters with respect to the pandemic? Absolutely. Those reactions are also a reflection of reality.

    Note 2: Footnotes are provided where I deemed them appropriate. Please be sure to look at the version of any url from the date of the chapter (the Internet Archive should make that possible) as policies or procedures by the time you read the chapter may be different as the pandemic continues to evolve.

    Summary

    Alex shook his head, and Michael could see clearly the tears welling up in his eyes. He frowned forcefully as if to stave them off. It didn’t work. Michael pulled him closer, as Alex willingly collapsed into the man’s arms. He wrapped a caring arm around him, rubbing his back and removing his hat, so he could rest his head down gently into Alex’s, which rested gently against his shoulder

    “What was it all for?” Alex lamented. “What were we even doing?”

    Michael shook his head as well, not sure what he should say. Somehow, words still managed to emerge from his mouth.

    “Your best.”
