    Summary

    Rhys never thought he'd be the partying type in college. Sure, he expected to attend a few parties, make a few bad decisions. What he didn't expect was to join the biggest fraternity on campus, which was known pretty much exclusively for parties. Why did he join? A hot guy, why else?

    ---

    Or, the one where Rhys is a freshman in college who joins the same fraternity as Jack, a senior, and becomes his pledge. (Rated E for later chapters.)

    Summary

    “So eager to meet death again, Rhysie ?”
    “Hm. Like the time you left me for dead in the Plaguelands to fight off the Scourge alone because you were too busy being Kael’thas’s puppet ? Or like the time the Lich King turned me into a banshee shortly after ?”

    (A Borderlands/World of Warcraft crossover AU, where Rhys is a night-elf death knight, and Handsome Jack is a blood-elf death knight. This is pure sin with angst, poor "undeath" choices, and tomfoolery. Not for weaklings.)

    Summary

    Word spreads like wild fire in Helios.
    If it's anything interesting, people talk.
    While the infamous Handsome Jack enjoys picking off his employees,
    feeding them to his air-lock, an disgruntled worker mumbles a few words. Rumours.
    His ego growing, a sickening grin splayed, he amuses himself at the thought.
    Maybe he'll pay a visit to this boy who claims to know him, used to be his...
    previous lover.

    -

    Or:
    After a hideous breakup with Jack, Rhys finds himself writing his feelings. Ultimately
    becoming an up and coming artist going by the alias of "Pumpkin".
    His songs aren't quite discreet, suggesting Jack is the man he sings about, along with his signature opening, which entails him taking off a replica Jack mask from his face.
    And if you think the psychotic man himself doesn't know everything, you're dead wrong.
    Everything circles back to him, and he doesn't quite enjoy loose ends.
    Especially personal ones'.

    Summary

    Rhys is a long-term patient in the Helios St Angel psychiatric hospital. He's went through some hard times that led to some bad life choices, leaving him crippled and considered a danger to himself. He is content with his life, though. In the asylum, he is safe.

    Rhys' life turns upside down when he gets a new roommate. The notorious CEO of Hyperion, Handsome Jack, was admitted by accident, and his (doubtful) sanity becomes the push the young patient needed. With Jack, he is going to leave the safe walls of the asylum and face real life. And this time, he is determined to win.

    But this kind of illnesses doesn't heal on command, and Rhys has a long way full of medication, therapy, love and talking to his friends ahead if he wants to finally beat his demon. He is not alone, though. This time, he just has to win.

    **** Tags will be added when they appear in the story, because tagging 80+ words in one go would kill me. Be aware that the Explicit rating is there for a reason, and as always, this story will get a little dark. But just a little. Otherwise it is a pink cotton candy tagged Slow Burn. ****

    Summary

    Jack decides to steal Katagava Jr.'s pet. He spoils it and has fun with it.

    This work is HEAVILY inspired by @TQ121's work. Like, entirely. You should go and check it out before reading this (it's Chapter 26 of the Kinktober 2019 series). I don't know how tagging works on AO3, but hopefully it won't be hard to get there.

    Summary

    Rhys is Handsome Jack’s personal assistant.
    Rhys does his best to put up with a homicidal maniac and Jack tolerates his outspoken assistant.

    Summary

    Fresh from one of the top culinary schools in the country, Rhys lands an internship at The Diamond Pony, the heralded restaurant of both infamous and legendary chef 'Handsome' Jack Wolfbaine. But as his first day turns out less than stellar, Rhys isn't sure the cooking world is all it's cracked up to be, and starts to doubt his career choice or if he was ever built to handle it. Plus, turns out the Pony is now a washed up novelty from yesteryear with barely the ability to fill its dining room, its staff full of miscreants and over-inflated egos. When the reasons why become evident, Rhys bucks up and decides to stay on, making it his duty not only to pull the restaurant back into the spotlight, but to also impress the non-impressible Chef Jack.

    Summary

    Handsome Jack finds himself once again out and about in his AI form. It takes him by surprise at first, especially after being locked away for so long, but he can learn to embrace it. Even if he is very limited in what he can do.
    But after chatting with Grace Steele, a Hyperion Scientist who has managed to survive on Pandora longer than most of his employees, it seems there could be hope for Handsome Jack yet.

    Summary

    We all know the story: Rhys is a data-miner, almost makes Head of Security, but gets booted to Janitorial thanks to his asshole rival. So, what if Rhys never found out about the deal on Pandora? Would he just stay; twiddling his thumbs, hoping a Hero will save him from his new state of total boredom; instead of just hacking into Hyperion's systems and sending Assquez on a one way trip to Promethea? Of course he would. Because of one teenie, tiny little change made to Canon.

    Handsome Jack Wins.

    Oh. And Rhys might be completely obsessed with him.

    Summary

    Everyone thought Skies the Bodyguard died with Handsome Jack in the Vault of the Warrior. But in actuality, she had managed to disappear into the Pandora expanse. With no one to trust, and missing an arm and eye, she would eventually die out there or completely lose her mind. Or that was the plan, before she meets Rhys.
