    Summary

    Oliver never gets the chance to go to Italy in 1983. Instead, he meets Elio for the first time on a spring evening in 1988. They are attracted to each other like magnets, but life’s impossibilities pull them apart in the morning. To make it easier to say goodbye, Oliver suggests a pact to meet ten years later; same time, same place.

    Takes place in two timelines: on May 16th, 1988, and on the same day in 1998.

    Summary

    Over the years, John and Paul had shared jokes and stories. They'd shared meals. They'd shared song lyrics and melodies, strummed on guitars or picked out from the keys of the pianos in whatever room they'd happened to find themselves that night. They'd shared stages, and microphones, and studio recording spaces. They'd shared ideas, and they'd shared heartache; they'd shared triumphs and they'd shared loss.

    From the basements of Liverpool to the rooftops of London, without realising it, they'd been sharing her all along as well...

    A NOVEL IN THREE PARTS:

    Summary

    A simple act of kindness can go a long way. When [Y/N] finds a wounded Bucky in the park she helps without hesitation, unbeknownst to her that he's the infamous mob king. Bucky becomes completely infatuated by her and wants her for himself and Bucky Barnes always gets what he wants. Now [Y/N] finds herself trapped in a dark world with no way out.

    Without a doubt, Bucky loves her, as any good husband would so he's gentle with her, afraid she'll crack at the slightest touch. [Y/N] knows it's all a facade because there's deep darkness within Bucky that will never disappear. Just like him she creates the persona of a good wife but harbors disgust and contempt for him. For who could ever truly love a hideous beast?

    Summary

    It's January 1990 and Oliver is in Venice. That's all I'm going to say to avoid spoilers.

    The story will have a happy ending, but there will be angst. You have been warned ;)

    Narrated from Oliver's POV (this may change in future chapters)

    The usual warnings apply: I've never lived in Venice so forgive the mistakes, I do not own these characters, and please do not repost my work on other platforms without my consent.

    Summary

    Clumsy hands in a dark room. Crossed out. There is something

    underneath the floorboards.

                       Crossed out. And here is the tabernacle

                                                                                                    reconstructed.

    Here is the part where everyone was happy all the time and we were all

                   forgiven,

    even though we didn’t deserve it.

    He got 8 of them.

    Summary

    A few years since we last saw any of them, the Peach Creek Boys and the Merry Men run into one another at just the right time, working together to undermine an oppressive city government as well as their burgeoning insecurities. An action-comedy-drama character study about friendship, leadership, self-esteem, and the divide between who we're born as and who we choose to be. And it's set in a neutral-ground third universe.

    A common criticism of Ed, Edd 'n' Eddy is that all the characters are irredeemably unlikable in some way, while even the animators of Robin Hood called their film a really cutesy piece with "no soul." I intend to remedy both of those things.

    Fair warning for profane and sometimes offensive language, but I can give you the Dobanochi 100% No-Gratuitous-Explicit-Scenes-That-Don't-Advance-the-Plot-or-Develop-the-Characters-in-Any-Way Guarantee.

    Reviews, even negative, are welcomed and encouraged. I want to see if my writing style can fly with normal people. :P
