    Summary

    The year is 2019, and life has become quite dull for you since graduating from university back in 2011. You used to do stand up comedy at uni but lost yourself in routine. One night, your best mates decide to encourage you to try comedy again and this is where you stumble across your old friend and old flame, Rhys James. Your life flips over and you dive into the world of the close-knitted comedy circuit. In the midst of it all, you end up meeting a particularly distinctive red headed fellow who could become a confusion for you and your past feelings for Rhys. Is life bringing back meaning to you again?

    A/N: Had to update the timeline of this story for it to make sense to when Rhys James went to uni because otherwise the reader would not have met him there! Whoopsie.

    Summary

    Who would have known a BDSM club to be such a great place to meet someone? James certainly didn’t, not until he met Ed.

    Summary

    You meet James Acaster at Ed Gamble's birthday party and the two of you hit it off. The story's a bit of a slow burner but after a while, you get closer and realise there's something more than just friendship. If you're just here for the smut skip straight to chapter 5 lmao

    Summary

    During a recording of Off menu, James gets a little irate at some of the guest’s choices, completely ignoring Ed’s orders that he had in place from the beginning of the recording in the process. James knew the rules, and now, there were punishments to be dealt out…

    Summary

    Moonlight streams in through the windows, gentle rays of soft, hazy, blue tinged light bathing pale skin in its cool hue as it enters through half closed blinds. All is quiet aside from delicate breaths, soft and relaxed limbs entwined together, half covered by crumpled, linen sheets.

    Summary

    A oneshot that went way too long, based on the song 'Cliche' by mxmtoon. There are minimal James Acaster fics online, and although I'm not much of a writer (especially when it comes to romance) I thought I'd throw my hat into the ring (I really hope that's the right context).

    Summary

    From the dialogue prompts:
    "We're not friends and you fuckin know it"
    "You look at me and my heart skips a beat"
    .
    .
    “I believe I was promised he would be on the other end of the table” You tried to project as much annoyance as possible at her.
    “Opposite sides. I said opposite sides, not opposite ends.” she says with a touch of laughter.
    “You’re lucky you’re my best friend because otherwise I would throw hands right here in the middle of your dining room.”
    “I love you too.”

    Summary

    James doesn’t want to listen, and he actively tries not to. He closes his eyes and tries to focus on the sound of distant traffic outside but now that he’s heard it and he knows it’s happening he can’t stop hearing it. He hears isolated words, soft moans, occasionally the smack of skin against skin that he doesn’t want to think about too much. He doesn’t know if the girl says anything, but he hears the rumble of Ed’s voice without even trying. It’s second nature to tune in when Ed starts speaking.

    Summary

    "Do you trust me?" He hears as Ed sets down a tray on the table and sits down. James looks up, eyes squinted.

    "Absolutely not," he says like it should be obvious. James remembers all too well the things Ed has talked him into doing while he was drunk or half crazed from Fringe exhaustion or both.

    "Close your eyes," Ed tells him, and James watches him as he transfers the drinks from the tray, noticing a plate covered with a serviette.

    James closes them.
