    Summary

    Possible Triggers: Mention of Miscarriage (later)

    They were a small town scandal. A high school student with a bright future seduced by the outsider brooding high school teacher that came out of nowhere. Married at eighteen with a just-visible bump under the empress waistline of her off-white wedding dress, everyone was stunned when it was the girl who took off two years later leaving a pair of twins with a disgraced teacher trying to make ends meet.

    Six years later, Rey MacGregor Solo returns to Takodana just in time for the famous "Takodana Winter Festival", the first one to be held in four years since a tornado ravaged the small Texas town. Her best friend Rose Tico, an up and coming country artist, is the entertainment and begged Rey to come with her. Rey's plans are to drift in and out of town with her (probably ex) husband and children never knowing she's there. However, in a small town word gets around fast and before she knows it Rey is face-to-face with her (probably ex) husband in the Mos Eisley Bar...

    Rey knows she doesn't deserve a second chance to reclaim her world, but the town matchmakers and perhaps Ben Solo himself have entirely different ideas.

    Summary

    The last chapter to Happily-Ever-After was supposed to be written with the End of War Manifesto that banished the villains from Auradon, but no one planned for Maleficent's Master Plan. Twenty-four years after the war is over, King Benjamin is about to ascend the throne, but there's one major roadblock - a daughter of Maleficent who has been cursed to become Queen of the Isle of the Lost with him, or else. Now, Ben and Mal need to learn to work together to rule an increasing number of kingdoms, including an Auradon in uproar over a new Queen, an Ancient Kingdom desperate to survive, an Island that has been completely severed off of Auradon to fend for itself as a new country, and a massive war that has been going on for thirty years above their heads. Meanwhile, neither is sure of the other, their forced partner who may have all their best interests at heart or who may betray them at any time. Can they balance trust, duty, want and need? It's now or never. There is no time left. Updates on Wednesdays. Text spoilers posted every fifth chapter in closing notes.

    Summary

    It felt like hours that he stared at Izuku, coming to terms with the fact that a man, his childhood best friend, whom he hadn’t seen since their senior year of high school, was there in front of his very eyes. Then his brows furrowed and his jaw clenched before he uttered through gritted teeth the very name Izuku had longed to hear for years.

    “Deku.”

    Summary

    He doesn’t move, but sees Victor slowly turn until the blurred shadow of his silhouette lies parallel to him. The chill of the ice still clings to his clothes, the smell of old coffee a rich note with each gentle exhale. Even in the darkness the soft blue of his eyes shine like a distant lighthouse through the mist.

    They used to be his anchor, his way home. But now he’s more lost than ever, the sea of everything going on around them forever beating him back against the rocks until he lost the energy to even try and swim away.

    Summary

    Tim found soothing comfort in Alex's hold whereas he never felt anything in his supposed to be devoted lover; Jay's own who cheated on him with his deceitful best friend meant to be by his side during hard times. Proven terribly otherwise as what was done is over where still it made him feel extremely as well, suddenly conscious over his self-worth yet the taller, gangly man reassured his painful worries by whispering sweet nothings in his ear. Gentle, caring and respective words being uttered carefully with such controlled ease made him feel in a sudden instant butterfly flapping their wings in his stomach doing backflips every time. Almost to the point it was sickening however, it's just first, his mind trying to get over the fact he’s been cheated on while his body dealt with this new feeling he never gotten before so, no worries, right. This right here when alone with the other man, not his boyfriend he somehow felt more safer almost to where he’s able to be content in staying over for just a night to sleep off the pain of rejection.
