    Summary

    Career jostled by a poor performing movie and stuck in romcom hell, Alex Claremont-Diaz is in a rut. When the opportunity he's been looking for finally shows up, the role goes instead to Henry Fox, the darling of London's theater scene looking to break into Hollywood. Trapped in a swirl of animosity, they end up cast opposite each other as a gay couple in a period drama. As they come to an understanding and surprise one another, will what's on screen make its way into reality?

    Updates on (hopefully): Tuesdays and Fridays. Hopefully.

    Summary

    Henry Fox is a nurse at the New York Cancer Center. He’s happy with his job, content enough with his life, but it all gets turned on its head when he connects with a patient with a brain tumor—Alex Claremont-Diaz.

    ———

    Henry is a nurse, Alex is a patient, I suck at summaries.

    Summary

    100-word drabbles. Mostly unrelated. Don't be put off by the fact that it's incomplete - each chapter is a story in and of itself.

    Title taken from Nora, while Alex is on FaceTime with her from the guest kitchen in Kensington:
    “... Watch it all unfold through a pair of binoculars.”

    We jump around in time, visiting different characters at different times, but almost always sweet and fluffy as I'm apparently incapable of writing anything else.

    Each little drabble stands alone and unrelated.

    Prompts:
    - morning
    - map
    - tour
    - redo
    - underwhelming
    - Renaissance
    - turkey

    Summary

    “The beauty of love is that you can fall into it with the most unexpected person at the most unexpected time.” - Ritu Ghatourey

    Henry expects the coming school year to be much the same as the previous ones. He couldn't be more wrong.

    Summary

    “So, Henry,” Alex says, “Will you make me the happiest man on this goddamn airplane and drive through this storm with me tonight?”

    Henry pinches his brow and releases a weary sigh. “This is the most ridiculous thing I’ve agreed to all year.”

    Hook, line, and fucking sinker.

    “Don’t worry, Sweetheart,” Alex soothes. “It’s only March.”

    _____

    Alex and Henry have one thing in common: they desperately need to catch their flights in Chicago tomorrow. Splitting the cost of a rental car and driving through a deadly storm is the only logical solution. What could possibly go wrong?

    Summary

    Henry – Prince Henry, third in line for the throne of Windsor and Alex's goddamn betrothed – has very soft hands. Alex knows this because he is literally holding them in his, both of them standing in front of just about everyone with a title in either of their two kingdoms, while a man in an extremely large hat has them repeat oaths and other things Alex has been learning by heart since he got engaged.

    *

    Looking back on their time at the altar, Alex should maybe have read a little more into the way Henry kissed him like it was the last time.

    Summary

    “I thought I was ready to date again, but—”

    “You’re not over your ex,” Thomas finishes. “I get it.”

    Alex gulps. He hadn’t even mentioned his breakup. Is he so obvious that Thomas can spend one evening with him and spot his broken heart? He was never supposed to be this guy. He was supposed to move to Oxford, complete his Master’s in Political Theory, have a few flings, and return to the United States with broadened horizons. Henry had taken that plan and had shredded it to bits before leaving Alex a broken shell of a man.

    Months after a horrible and completely unexpected breakup, Alex is just trying to move on and get through the holidays. Then his ex shows up.

    Summary

    Henry raises an eyebrow. “I wouldn’t have pegged you as the kind of person to not know what the Magna Carta is. Shouldn’t aspiring politicians know that kind of thing?”
    Alex has a scathing response on the tip of his tongue, thank you very much, but then Nora, who is still braiding June’s hair and not even looking at them, completely derails his train of thought.
    “I *would* have pegged you. But I didn’t think you were ready for it back then.”

    Or: Alex gets his entire worldview rearranged within twenty minutes. Featuring pub quiz nemeses extraordinaire, competitive bitchiness and realisations™.

    Summary

    “I’m not gonna ask you what happened. I’m not gonna ask you how you’re here. I’m not gonna call anyone, I promise.” He thinks back to his house, to his bedroom door that he’s left open, and the decision is made. He can sleep on the floor for one goddamn night. “But I’m not gonna walk away either. So you can let me help you up on your feet and walk back to my place, or if you can’t I’m calling an Uber.” He brushes Henry’s hair away from his face and lowers his voice. “I’m so fucking sorry about her.”

    He doesn’t need to say the name. Henry knows, and for once, searching Alex’s face, he realizes someone else does, too.

    Henry is outed against his will and Mary kicks him out of her house. Alex finds him.

    Or, 5 times Henry discovers what it means to have a family and 1 time he lets himself realize he has one.

    Summary

    Alex Claremont-Diaz isn't the 'bad boy of ballet'. He's just good at playing the tortured roles. But his latest role, where he's partnered with Beatrice Fox, is coming to an end, and they're announcing the new season's program soon. He might never be the romantic hero, but maybe it's time for a change.

    Chapters come twice a week and there are only seven of them, so there's no danger of this being a forever WIP.

    Summary

    Alex and Henry always seem to be falling asleep together.
    And just because Henry is arguably good looking and quite attractive DOES NOT MEAN that Alex is attractED to him.
    Because that would be stupid.

    And even though Alex sometimes finds it difficult to tear his eyes away from Henry, DOES NOT MEAN he'd like to kiss him thank you very much.
    No way.

    A series of (sort of one shots I guess but not really idk it doesn't have the low points in the plot just their significant moments) moments and their relationship slowly develops into something a lot more...

    Summary

    "Are you alright?"

    It took a moment to register the question and when he did, it took him another moment to respond.

    "Yes, totally fine. 100%, thank you."

    The voice was distinctly British and Alex assumed that was to blame. Everyone in America knew that you didn't talk to anyone visibly insane on public transportation (did planes count? he was too stressed to even consider it) but maybe people in Britain were just blindly ignorant to that fact.

    "Are you sure? You've gotten quite pale and you're… shaking."

    Trembling like a leaf could have been used, but maybe the stranger was too nice to admit it.

    "I'm just not a big fan of flying."

     

    Or; Alex is a nervous flyer, and Henry is too pretty of a distraction to pass up
