    Summary

    Mark has felt fucked up about holding onto the pendulum of control so fiercely each time it swings to him, but he tells himself not to bother. Eventually you hit a breaking point, where the internal turmoil dries up like a puddle in a forest fire.

    He'll admit that it's unfortunate that a forest fire is an apt metaphor for his love life. Sex life. Shit.

    Summary

    "I’ll be honest, I don’t often take new patients, and I want to make sure that the service I provide here is a good fit for your needs. Would you like to start with the reason you decided to set up an appointment with me today?”

    Jon twists the newspaper clipping in his hands again, then notices Dr. Bright looking down at it. His face gets hot, and he quickly tucks it into his pocket. “I, uhm. I saw your ad. It, ah, caught my eye, I suppose you might say.”

    Dr. Bright smiles. It’s a genuine smile, one that crinkles her eyes at the corners, but it also does very little to help Jon gauge her response. “Of course. It’s not exactly the most… typical method for advertising a therapist. Was there any particular reason it drew your attention?”

    Jon chews on his lip. “Well, ah. I don’t know that the sort of problems I have could be helped by any typical therapist.”

    ----

    Or, Somewhere Else, Jon finds a therapist.

    Summary

    It's always been different with him. The green was always vibrant. Easier. The blue never fought against the yellow. Caleb never understood why his empathy was easier with Adam, he thought they were soulmates. What if it was something more? Not that it mattered now because they've been broken up for a year. Then a phone call flipped his world upside down.

    AU, rated M for adult themes, mental health. No noncanon character death. Possible smut, we'll see. More characters than just the tags, but it is still very much a work in progress.

    Summary

    5 times when Joan and Owen stay late and 1 time she leaves early.

    She’d thought she was ready. And she was, but not for him. She hadn’t believed in love at first site, but if she looked back she supposed that was what the butterflies in her stomach were. She’d just assumed they were nerves. But when he broke her heart, she remembered why she didn’t believe in love at all.

    Summary

    His brain was rushing. Everything was going too fast. The revolving fan on the ceiling was too loud, the clothes on his back too scratchy, and the air was getting thinner. It wasn't long before he could barely breathe. He crumpled to the floor. Shuffling his way into the corner of his room and curling up. If he was small, nothing could touch him. But it didn't change that he was trapped. His mind kept racing, he kept crying, his chest kept heaving, and he didn’t know what to do. It was all just too much. 

    He was trapped again. He was trapped, and they wouldn't let him out, again. Maybe he deserved it again. Maybe he was a monster again. Maybe he never stopped being a monster at all.

    Tobias has a panic attack, and Oliver helps him out.

    Summary

    Mark, Damien, and a mall parking lot.

    Summary

    “My feelings for you never went away. I should have forgot about you, but I couldn’t. I can’t. Joanie can think whatever she wants, that you still hold some control over me or something, that it’s Stockholm syndrome, but I know that’s not the case. I want you. All of you, the good, the bad, the bullshit. I want it.”

    His next words are quieter.

    “I haven’t forgiven you. I’m not sure I can, but. I can’t let you go either. I don’t want to.”

    Summary

    The weight of the key in Oliver’s hand is so much heavier than it should be. When his fingers close over it, he feels the heat of the metal warmed by Mark’s grip and he considers what it means when his heart skips.

    Summary

    Oliver's life is going fairly smoothly. He's in a committed three-year relationship, has been working through his problems in therapy, and is set to start his new job teaching high school chemistry in the fall.

    When he meets a young alchemist staying at the AM, and is offered the job of tutoring him for the summer, suddenly everything has turned upside-down and his perfectly smooth life turns into a rocky road of doubt and fear.

    And the worst part is, he thinks it might be a good thing.

    Summary

    Prince Byron Marcus Bryant — or, as he prefers to be called, Mark — has been in love with his servant and food taster, Oliver Ritz, ever since he was accidentally poisoned five years ago, but that's hardly his biggest problem right now. The King, his father, deeply despises aberrants, people with abilities outside the norm, and Mark... well, at least he's not the heir. The king wants him to be normal; Mark just wants to belong. The tension comes to a head at Mark's sister's engagement feast when a slow-acting drug gets past Oliver's test, and both men find themselves incapacitated and kidnapped.

    To their surprise, they are rescued from their certain fate by a trio of young aberrant — or atypical, as they call themselves — women trying to gather supplies for their camp. Despite misgivings and fear of the King's vengeance, the girls grudgingly take the men back to their settlement of atypicals in the woods where they can begin to discover who they really want to be.

    Tl;dr: A vaguely fantasy medieval royalty AU about finding love, trust, family, and acceptance when you’re not sure you deserve it.

    Summary

    “Huh. Byron Bryant.” Oliver weighs the syllables on his tongue, noticing how similar they sound to each other and thinking about how the lofty and dramatic poetic association of Lord Byron doesn’t quite fit someone like Mark. Well, maybe the dramatic part does, he amends, remembering pretty much every moment that the two of them have spent together since they first met. “Damn, do your parents hate you or something?”

    Something tightens in Mark’s jaw. Oliver worries that he might not realize that he’s joking, but then to his relief Mark laughs. “I mean, yeah. But not when they named me, weirdly enough.”

    ---

    Five times that Oliver called Mark "Byron" over the course of their relationship.

    Summary

    It's been a long time since they talked about their feelings for each other, Mark wonders if it's been too long. He hopes he's not right.

     

    He holds the memory of that night and hopes that it has not slipped away from him, though he fears that it’s too late, that in waiting for them to be ready they’ve waited too long. How long do you wait for love? When is the someday that they’d agreed on? Does Oliver even really remember and if he does, is he simply waiting for Mark to forget?
    As it is, Mark is in some kind of purgatory, too afraid to hold tighter, too afraid to let go.

    Summary

    After the events of The College Tapes, Mark is ready to have a calm and relaxing week. The universe has different plans for him, however, and instead he embarks on several busy days of talking to friends both old and new, doing his small part to help reunite a friend group, and (most importantly) coming to the realization that he is more than a little in love with Oliver.
