    Summary

    "Dear diary,
    I am Jung Hoseok."

    Jung Hoseok, a 21-year-old club bouncer, isn't exactly a people's person. Ever since he discovered his ability to communicate with beings outside Earth, which he calls "Consciousnesses", and everyone else calls aliens, he hasn't cut ties with those forms of life. But not everything stays the same when he decides to face his childhood fears, and come into contact with one of the most powerful beings of all. Could this turn out to be the strongest connection he ever made? And at what consequences?

    Follow Jung Hoseok's life, in the small town he was born in and never left, the way he documents it in his own diary pages. An unexpected friend but also an old grudge, a murder case never explained, the gaze of a photo on a grave, and a person pretending to be something they are not.

    Are you ready to open his diary?

    Summary

    More than the loss of the skin—which was enough of a problem to be getting on with, thank you—the problem was, Aziraphale had done the wrong thing.

    If he could say to Gabriel that he'd simply seen a creature in distress and decided to help, he might not be forgiven, but he probably wouldn't be cast out. But, knowingly saving a human from drowning was beyond the pale. He was meant to be spying on them, not helping them.

    OR

    Aziraphale is a selkie whose lost skin is somewhere in the village of Tadfield; Crowley is a fay who considers Tadfield his personal garden to cultivate and protect. They're drawn to each other, but neither is willing to divulge their secret. Naturally, a lot of inconvenient feelings and small-town hijinks ensue anyway.

    Summary

    Ben Solo is a well-known pastry chef in Las Vegas but he quits after receiving word that his grandmother had bequeathed her beloved bakery and homestead in his name. As part of the stipulation for him to inherit, he'll have to run the bakery and restore the farmhouse. Of course he couldn't do all that alone so he posts an ad in the local community board. He has absolutely no idea that his new handyman housemate was in fact a woman.

    Sweet-toothed Rey is a scholarship student that needs cheap lodgings. She exchanges her skills as a handyman for a discount at the farmhouse that's being renovated. It's a pretty good deal too seeing as her housemate loved to bake. Who else would benefit from all those experimental desserts?

    Hilarity ensues as City Boy tries very hard to Countryside and not fall in love.

    Summary

    Lance is used to the big city - full of people, lights and all sorts of action, he just drinks it all in. However, his life changes when his job gets relocated to the middle of nowhere, where the people aren’t as friendly, when it gets dark, it gets dark, and there’s barely anything going on, and if there is, it sure as hell isn’t good.

    Summary

    Musutafu Bay is a small coastal town where nothing good ever happens. Having lost his parents to a mysterious accident at sea, Bakugou returns to the bay, determined to leave as soon as possible. When he finds a wounded creature at the beach, his plans change. Because the creature is half-human, half-shark and is currently bleeding out in his bathtub.

    Deku needs to confess his love to Shouto this summer because he has merely 60 days until his best friend leaves for college. Shouto, however, is busy hunting the shadows of his past. Three years ago his brother Touya took his life by the cliffs, months later the marine research laboratory was built on top of his watery grave. And Shouto is convinced this can't be a coincidence.

    Kaminari is facing the most miserable summer of his life. Having failed to graduate, he keeps himself afloat by working at Hawks' surf school and finds himself stuck living with his former teacher Aizawa. On top of that, his roommate for the summer is Shinsou, a smug smartass working for the hated laboratory of the Bay.

    Touya is dead. But Dabi lives. And he is out for blood.

    Summary

    David gulps, and continues moving until he's right in front of Jack, who in turn presses himself flat against the truck and winces. "Jackie," David whispers, then hesitantly brings his palm up to rest against Jack's cheek. Jack takes in a sharp breath at that, and then David gently guides Jack to tilt his head up, to look at David, and--

    David’s eyes go wide. "Oh, my God, Jack…"

    Summary

    🎪🌷/*/🎠/*/🌷🎪

    Jimin Park and Jungkook Jeon were the briefest of acquaintances before they became clandestine lovers. In the summer heat of 1955, fate brought two lonesome souls together for a fast and furious, whirlwind romance. One man jaded and weathered by life’s circumstances, the other, a kind, wide-eyed and naïve youth longing to escape the small town he grew up in...

    It was a fleeting and taboo affair, but a heart and eye-opening one for a very young Jungkook. He found love with another man, in a time period where anything that deviated from the nuclear family, husband, wife, 2.5 children, cookie-cutter norm was considered to be wrong.

    Abnormal.

    Sinful.

    How could something so beautiful be called such horrible things?

    🎪🌷/*/🎠/*/🌷🎪

    ---

    This is a story of love and loss as well as coming out. Modern and retro, circus and slice of life, set in 1955 and 2011. Shocking news that elderly Jungkook receives on an ordinary Sunday morning will change him and the rest of his life forever. But, before he can move forward, JK must face his past (and himself). How will his final Third Act in life end up?

    Summary

    He’d thought that his feelings for Quentin would diminish. A longer half life than normal, but fading nonetheless. But he’d had to actively push Quentin from his mind, working at losing him piece by piece (—two rivers, a continent— he thinks), but it was work, an active extrication, dulled by alcohol and drugs and sun-soaked, over-waxed men. It had taken time and the death of brain cells, his sobriety and losing the life he’d tried to build—

    —but Eliot is sure, as soon as Quentin walks into his patisserie, that all of that resistance, the repeated acts of forgetting, was for nothing. Eliot thinks, gripping the edge of the counter as he stares— God, he’s staring— that Quentin in his twenties was surely beautiful, but the man in front of him is something else entirely. Softer, somehow, deep laugh lines at the corners of his eyes, his hair short now— and somehow, that’s worse than the loose bun he used to wear because it’s wholly different, betraying all the time lost between them. His dimples crease as he catches Eliot’s gaze, and he pushes his glasses up the slope of his nose. He’s—God, it’s so corny, and Eliot is so fucked—Q is artistry, perfect form, Eliot’s long-buried wanting made manifest.

    Summary

    Growing up as a magicker in a small town where magic is practically condemned is hard enough, but just wait until you're president of the school's failure of a magic club.

    Also, there's a mysterious and powerful new kid in town who may just be everything you've ever wanted in a guy.

    Also, you still have a maybe-almost-thing going on with your childhood best friend who's drifting further and further by the day.

    Also, someone did something they shouldn't have and now everything is thrown into chaos and you're dealing with forces you shouldn't even know exist.

    But at least there's a new donut place.

    Summary

    Emmaline Wheaton's life is not going according to plan -- that's because it has no plan.

    Her dad's new job has uprooted her from her big city life and plopped her right in Curling Blue, Ohio, population thirty thousand boring people and a bunch of cows. Emmaline could care less and is planning on coasting through her last two years of high school, until she meets August Davidson, charismatic star of the football team and ladies man of Curling Blue High. Soon, she's inducted into the school's jazz band and meets more friends: fiery lesbian Amber, who wears Converse with her little black dresses; J.P., August's best friend and trusty farmboy; and Jaewon, the loner who spends his time on the roof playing a recorder.

    Alone, they are students at Curling Blue High. Together, they become Walking on Starlight, Curling Blue's student rock band. And they're about to take the city by storm.
