    Summary

    Hux is a child of a District 12 Hunger Games Champion, and the brother of a fallen tribute. Once he gets into the games, he knows he needs to be crafty in order to win. What no one could expect was that he would become interested in Kylo Ren, a District 2 Career, who most definitely could kill him.

    The Hunger Games are hard enough without love. With love, they're damn difficult.

    (Rated E for later chapters! No violence/smut in the first two chapters!)

    Summary

    Mia Panadera first came to the United States from Puerto Rico in search of the American dream and ended up grinding away at two jobs at a bakery and a hair salon, and married to an angry, neglectful, abusive husband.
    And then he walks into the bakery one morning, with his long hair, round face, Danish accent, and monumental appetite. He’s short, he’s sexy, he’s the drummer, he won’t shut up, and his name is Lars. She feeds him and is willing to spark a romance with him through his stomach, but there’s her marriage, her friends, and most of all, her parents.
    She’s also got those bruises and scars all over her body, and to him, they seem to be coming out of nowhere. But instead of pulling away, he only finds her more attractive and intriguing. He wants her to follow him and his band around for their tour, and Seattle is beginning to appear to be a better place for her, but she didn’t come so far to turn her back on the place she worked so hard to be at and ultimately, her husband.
    She has to confess to him at some point, that is if she confesses at all.

    Summary

    City life isn't as glamorous as one would think it is.

    It's bright and blinding, distracting from how it truly is.

    It's not for you, but that doesn't stop you from slipping on those shiny black heels and go party it up with your friends every Saturday night when work is over.

    Before you left, you meet a skeleton wearing a blue scarf and carrying boxes stacked high to the ceiling. He's charming. He's cute. You both become fast friends. And you find yourself choking out that glitter-stuffed taco he gave you.

    Why are all your friends so bad at cooking?

    Summary

    “Well, looks like I'm going to have to call him.” Peter huffed putting his hands on his hips as he hunched forward exhausted.
    “Who?” Derek panted, his knees wanting to give out under him. Who, could you reasonably ask for help in this mess?
    “Stilinski,” Peter replied as though he should know. He raised an eyebrow amused at his nephew’s confused expression. “You'll like him, he's a good kid.”

    A good kid? Debatable. A good swing provable, but that would come later.

    Attempting a magical ritual to commune with the deceased Hale pack matriarch leads to a monster on the lose. The remaining Hales must hire a dangerous Fox freelancer to clean it up.

    Summary

    Cheryl allowed a smile to grace her lips, and then Toni was staring at her with number 8 eyes and cotton candy hair and tiger teeth, and it was like the colors had come back. It didn’t feel like a lie though. It felt real.

    “I can’t believe you really exist,” Cheryl whispered, hand resting on Toni’s warm cheek indulgently. The contrast of their skin reminded Cheryl once again of how different they were, but for some reason, Toni felt familiar. Sort of like coming home.

    ----

    Chrome - Chromium plate as a decorative or protective finish on motor-vehicle fittings and other objects

    Early 19th century, from Greek Khromas, meaning color (having brilliant colors)

    OR

    Cheryl copes with pain by twisting it until it finally resembles something pleasant. But then Toni comes along, and suddenly everything feels real. Too real.

    Summary

    At first, it's easy. Mob likes takoyaki. This, Reigen can remember.

    When Teru moves in, things get a little more complex, but it's fine. He only has to feed one kid on a regular basis; he can handle this. But before he knows it, he's memorized all of Tome's favorite restaurants and he's keeping a stash of snacks in the office just in case Shou visits. This whole "family" business has gotten out of hand.

    [Five times Reigen treated his kids to a meal, and one time they returned the favor.]

    Summary

    "I'm perfect for a killing game," she smiled, "I don't have any faith in humanity."
    --
    During the first trial, rather than pointing out Kaede as the one who murdered Rantaro, Shuichi takes the fall for her, making everyone else believe that she put the trap together, but he was the one to roll the shot put. With Shuichi gone, it's up to Kaede to try and unravel the mysteries behind Rantaro's death and Shuichi's sacrifice. She's no detective, but she can try.

    Also, she's hearing voices in her head.
    --
    AKA, in which Kaede is a bit smarter, Miu and Kokichi get treated a bit better by their peers, and Maki is a bit less threatening. Strap yourselves in; your faves are gonna die horribly.
