    Summary

    Louis Tomlinson is a 35-year-old father of a fifteen-year-old girl, he's married and has inherited his father's company at a relatively young age. He has his best friend as his assistant and all the money he could ever ask for, a huge house in London and he's seen more cities than he can even remember.

    But Louis Tomlinson isn't happy, isn't excited - isn't living.

    Until one day he flies from L.A. to London and is forced to sit beside a young man who doesn't have any idea how a regular person would act around a complete stranger, let alone what personal space means. After that, Louis Tomlinson is definitely alive.

    or, a story of two very ordinary, a bit messed up people, who grow dependent on each other and think the other is everything but ordinary.

    Summary

    Derek has a new neighbor who won't stop looking.

    Excerpt:

    “You’re blind,” Derek said flatly, the anger draining from him so suddenly he felt almost woozy. His vision cleared, his claws sliding back into blunt fingernails.

    “Thanks for the memo, genius,” the kid said acidly. “I can still fucking defend myself, so don’t take another damn step.”

    “Fuck, I...I’m sorry,” Derek stuttered.

    “What?!” The kid’s brow crinkled. “I mean — what?! You’re fucking sorry!?” His lips thinned into a harsh line. “What, is this some kinda Hallmark movie where you’re discovering the error of your ways because you don’t want to rob a blind person?! That’s fucking condescending, man. I’ll have you know that —”

    “Just, wait.” Derek interrupted what was apparently the start of a convincing argument as to why he should rob the kid after all, feeling his head start to spin. “This is — it’s a misunderstanding. I’m — I’m not robbing you. You’re — you’re safe, okay? I’m taking three steps back. Just — just let me explain.”

    “Explain why you came busting into my apartment? Yeah, go right ahead, man, I can’t wait to hear this epic tale.”

    Summary

    "Oops," is all the lanky boy says. His name, according to his nametag, is Harry.

    "Um, hi?" Louis chokes out, staring at Harry as if he's just disrupted the perfect dream when, in actuality, Louis was just thinking about how to make sure he got the best slots for the week.

    "Sorry about that," Harry says. "Just, um, finding my sea legs?"

    Louis doesn't mean to laugh in Harry's face, but he's left with no choice. Considering the ship hasn't even set sail yet.

    "I'm sorry, mate. I promise I'm not making fun of ya. I'm Louis," he says, trying to make amends for his behavior. Louis can be a clown, but he never wants to make someone feel like they don't belong. It's sappy, but he thinks everyone belongs on the sea.

    "Erm, I'm Harry. Which you probably knew from when my name tag collided with your face." Harry says, pointing to his chest.

     

    OR

    The one where Louis is a workaholic and tries not to fall for Harry but fails miserably. Oh, and they're out at sea.

    Summary

    Let it never be said that Stiles wasn't able to keep his cool when faced with awkward situations. It'd be right maybe, but it should never be said.

     

    Stiles gasped and spun around, eyes finding Derek immediately. The poor guy looked a bit shell-shocked.

     

    “Oh my god! Dude!” Stiles flailed his arms and lunged forward, tripping a bit and catching himself on Derek’s arms. “You have to fake date me!”

     

    “What?”
