    Summary

    Summary

    Told in Past/Present pairs, Alexander Hamilton survives losing his mother, being publicly outed as illegitimate, and the Washingtons.

    Summary

    It didn’t take long before Murphy’s apartment building came into view. Bellamy really was quite familiar with it. From drug busts to domestic abuse, it simply wasn’t the sort of place that a teenage boy should be living all alone. He almost couldn’t bear to pull into its parking lot knowing that once he did, he would have to hand Murphy back over to his regularly scheduled shit-show of a life and try to forget that he had ever met him. Because Murphy wasn’t his problem. It was as simple as that.
    *************
    In which Bellamy is a police officer who falls for a troubled orphan.

    Summary

    "'Death did not hold the name then that he holds now.'"

    In Mip's most notorious life prison, Death appears in a strange disguise.

    It had seemed for a while that the plan would work: a bold conspiracy by a group of idealistic prisoners and sympathetic guards to stop abuse at Mercy Prison. Then betrayal occurs, and Tyrrell finds himself in a new life prison, with new rules to be learned. No longer is he in a position of leadership; now he is surrounded by men who question his most fundamental values.

    He has new allies as well: fellow prisoners who like what they see in him, a healer who refuses to accept current conditions, and guards who may or may not provide the help that the prisoners desperately need. But Hell's messenger, Death, visits Compassion Prison, keeping his face hidden until it is almost too late for Tyrrell to recognize his touch.

    Boilerplate warning for all my stories.

    Summary

    The credits to The Bourne Identity rolled. "That's me," the stranger said.

    "You're the hero?" Titus asked skeptically as he got up to rewind the tape. He looked nothing like Matt Damon. His jawline was superior, to start with.

    “No, I mean how the rogue agent knows things but doesn't know why he knows. Difference is I know I can fly a helicopter, build a bomb out of household chemicals, and field-strip an antimateriel rifle, and I got a good idea why, but I get blindsided by the normal shit I can do, like load an icebox so the meat don't get dripped on, or boil a shirt.”

    “Far be it from me to judge what is and is not normal,” Titus said, “but normal people don't boil shirts.”

    Summary

    Him. 2D. I could see him even now, his goofy grin while holding the water gun like a hunting rifle, lining me down the sight. His hands ruffling my hair, one eye closed in a squint as if sizing me up, as if looking into the sun.

    ------------------------------

    The year is 2003. Five months have passed since Gorillaz ended things terribly in a rented Hollywood Hills mansion after their movie deal was dropped. 2D is working at his fathers funfair in Eastbourne, collecting ticket stubs when he's not out prowling the streets with newfound friends to find the next lucky lady he'll leave lonely after a one night stand.
    For Sloane McLeod, Tusspot Fairground is a chance for her and her brother Lou to start over after a run-in with the law back at home. Her plan is to lay low and turn up for work on time. Lou's the one who'll cover the wheeling and dealings, she's just gotta make sure she's around to keep him out of trouble, meaning no distractions. Especially not blue haired ones that come with black eyes and an adorably gap-toothed smile.

    Summary

    Sinbad is a young man trying to get by. By getting by, it really means stealing food from marketplaces and sitting under the tree on the hill to relax.

    Ja’far is a nature spirit that lives within the tree Sinbad likes to sit beneath. If only he could befriend him.

    The only way Sinbad could give Ja’far a human life is to capture the dungeon near Balbadd and, to get the boy he loves, he will risk his life to give Ja’far a real one.

    Summary

    The sexiest thing about a guy is when he acts normal. A celebrity who always knew he was going to be famous? Okay, sure. A celebrity that always wanted to be a vet and cries over videos of homeless dogs? Now, that's sexy.

    Choi Seungcheol wasn't normal in the slightest - at least not since his promotion. He had the potential to be stunning, but he was far from it when we worked together. Stressed, pushy, cold. Nothing you'd want from a manager, nevermind a lover.

    Unsurprisingly, I fell in love with him anyway. It's a story about him, after all, and it's exactly what you'd expect.

    Summary

    Katya hated home. She hated how her pantry never had anything on the shelves, how easily screams and bottle shattering echoed through the narrow halls, and how few places there were to hide when things got scary. In fact, the only thing she didn't hate, was how close it was to her best friend, Trixie. Katya trusted Trixie more than anyone else in the word, and Trixie loved that Katya was the one person she could truly be herself with. The two had been inseparable for as long as they could remember, but they were starting to realize that the older they got, the more complicated things were going to be.

    Summary

    Keith was by no means a good person. He’d gotten into one too many bar fights to be considered normal, he’d stumbled back to bed drunk more than once, and his main source of income was bike racing. Illegal bike racing.

    And yet here he was, hauling some passed out, frostbitten guy back to his shack in the middle of a blizzard at 11 o’clock at night.

    Summary

    Od pewnego czasu Stilesowi nie powodziło się najlepiej. Teraz można by nawet powiedzieć, że nie powodziło mu się w ogóle. Ale kiedy na uczelni znalazł ogłoszenie o badaniach nad parami ludzko-wilkołaczymi, poczuł, że los w końcu się do niego uśmiechnął. To było to. To absolutnie było to, doskonały sposób na podreperowanie jego budżetu.

    Musiał tylko znaleźć wilkołaka chętnego pójść na taki układ… ale od czego miało się swojego alfę? Derek zdecydowanie nie był z nim w związku, ale przecież małe kłamstwo nie zaboli…

    Skąd miał wiedzieć, że przez to w ciągu niecałego roku wydarzy się tak wiele?


    Czyli:

    Historia człowieka i wilkołaka, którzy najwyraźniej powinni być ze sobą od lat, bo nikt nie wątpi w ich udawany związek
