    Summary

    Many things have changed in Portorosso since Luca and Giulia left for school. With that comes many new things Alberto has to adjust to. He's been less lonely, he smiles more, and he's making friends. But there's one thing that's missing, and the seaside town feels a little less vibrant to Alberto. He misses Luca, and even though he doesn't actually say it to anyone else, it's obvious.

    Luca's been having a blast at school and exploring Genoa with Giulia and her mother. But the whole time, he can't shake the thought that this would all be perfect with Alberto right by his side. He finds many things that remind him of the other boy and on some occasions he even sends them back home to Alberto in the mail. But talking over the phone and sending letters sometimes just isn’t enough.

    What if there was a way to get Alberto to come and visit them in Genoa? Like a school dance, perhaps?

    i.e. both Luca and Alberto miss each other dearly, and Luca might just have a temporary solution to see Alberto before summer hits.

    Summary

So what happens when a sea monster who doesn't know his past shows up and insists on hanging around?

    Summary

    Three years ago, Luca was finishing his graduate degree in education, when Alberto abruptly left Portorosso to travel Europe without ever saying goodbye. In the time since then, Luca and Giulia have become teachers in Genova. They started to fake date as a way to dissuade one of Giulia’s colleagues from continuing to ask her out.

    This summer, when Luca returns to Portorosso, Alberto is there with a similar request. Luca thinks nothing of it. Except that everything about pretending to date Alberto feels entirely different and he doesn’t know why.

    Summary

    Luca has been adapting to school in Genova for the past month, and he's been thoroughly enjoying being here and learning all that he can beside Giulia. Other than the longing for the companionship of Alberto and the love of his family, he's feeling pretty good. The school was full of things for him to learn, and he even made a few new friends in his class. Adapting to living as a human being after thirteen years was hard enough, though. And if anything could make it worse, that would be a bully at school. Ercole was one thing, but this one seems completely different. He didn't single out Luca specifically, and he had Alberto and Giulia beside him to help him handle that jerk. Leonardo Armani was someone he was going to have to face on his own, or else the entire school would hear of his true nature. But here, nobody knew what was really happening. He had to tread lightly, even around those he trusted.But despite his best efforts, Giulia knew something was wrong. And she knew the best chances of getting it out of him would be Alberto Scorfano. So with just one letter sent back to Portorosso behind Luca's back, Alberto shows up for class. But will he be able to figure out what Luca is determined to keep hidden from everyone?

    Summary

    Growing up, Alberto's nights were often plagued by nightmares, while Luca's days felt like one long, static nightmare from which he would never escape. But in their chance meeting, their friendship opened the doors to a new life. Luca could finally explore the world and go to school, and while Alberto couldn't shake the nightmares, at least he wasn't alone anymore.

    For Alberto, he knows his dreams include having Luca in his life, even if he doesn't have the name for his feelings yet. But does Luca share that dream? What feelings does Luca hold in his heart? And even if they do match now, dreams and feelings can change after awhile.

    What will those dreams and feelings look like as the years go by?

    Summary

    Alberto Scorfano hated sea monsters; he and every other person that lived in their small, coastal town knew what they were capable of. Underneath the sheeted darkness of night, the creatures the lurked beneath the Rivera's shallow waters ravaged the town, kidnapping and feasting on locals who didn't know better. He was tired of feeling afraid for his family, tired of being helpless against the havoc they ran. He knew how dangerous they were, he 𝘬𝘯𝘦𝘸 how risky it was, but he didn't care. He was determined on finding a sea monster as soon as possible: and killing it.

     

    That is... until he met Luca.

    Summary

    Luca Paguro had had anxiety his entire life. He always felt like one wrong move would completely ruin him, so he learned to stay out of the sun. Even though he wanted nothing more than to make a friend, or finally gain the courage to talk to Giulia Marcovaldo, he knew it would all be for nothing. The moment he spoke, they would know he was weird and different. Even he knew he was weird and different. He just didn't know how different he was. At least, not until a boy with eyes the color of sea glass came into his life.
    Alberto Scorfano always knew he was useless. He knew he was the person who ruined everything, the person everyone grew tired of. So he found it pointless to make friends when they would eventually leave him... Just like his dad had. It's not like he did it on purpose. He probably just wasn't as interesting as he thought he was. And the only interesting thing about him, he had to keep a secret. There was no way anyone here would accept someone like him. Though those thoughts always swam around in his head, it was growing incredibly hard to ignore the doe-eyed boy that always had his head in the stars.

    Summary

    (formerly known as 'no cloud is beautiful but that which crowns the peak'.)
    Alberto could cry. He really could. Seven years spent pining after his best friend and he couldn't even meet his eyes.
    The tenderness in his heart felt as natural as the air in his lungs, the water in his gills. He just didn’t know when it had changed. It had become… private, somehow. Something he shouldn’t act on, something to be always felt and never talked about.
    Then why did it seemed like Luca was hellbent on defying his silent resolve of pretending his feelings didn't exist?
    Or
    Alberto is submitted to the mortifying ordeal of being known.

    Summary

    Luca and Alberto are closer than two scales on a fish. It’s been this way since the moment they first met, just over five years ago. Now at the age of 18 and about 20 respectively, they still have never said a word about the feelings they both share. Only one thing holds them back: fear.

    TLDR: Luca and Alberto very gay but also scared of society

    Summary

    “Giulia. Coffee?” Luca asks from his seat at the kitchen table, in what he hopes is a pathetic enough tone that she’ll make it for him. Giulia gives him a sympathetic look over her shoulder, her hair already tied up in a messy bun. A curl bounces at her temple as she shakes her head.

    “Sorry, Luca. All out.”

    “Giulia…”

    “It's fine, I have a better idea. You know where the science building is?” Luca nods as Giulia is already scribbling the directions on an old pizzeria-flyer, “There’s a little campus cafe just on the far side of the grass, you know where people sometimes study? My brother works there, just tell him I sent you and he’ll sort you out with something. You'll be caffeinated in no time.”

    (Luca needs coffee and Alberto has coffee. Seems like a simple enough equation for something that ends up being anything but.)

    Summary

    It didn't matter how many times his mind told himself that it would all end up the same way it did when he was thirteen, at least Alberto knew now that found what he didn't even know he was searching for. Surprisingly it all started with a cone of gelato and heavy confusion.

    Summary

    Luca tried to be normal and keep up with the other sea folk his age, but his body worked against him. How was he supposed to play tag if his joints locked up when swimming, or go exploring if his brain spiraled at every wrong turn, or even just hang out if his body would decide not to move some days?
