    Summary

    Makoto volunteers at his university's Student Help Hotline, set up as a safe space for students to call when stressed. While working the graveyard shift one night, he gets a call from a student that sets the ball of fate rolling. Cute, slightly angsty, and the perfect recipe for some good old Free!style drama.

    This work mentions stress and anxiety, so if this is a trigger for you then please be aware!

    Summary

    Modern AU, the prequel to Wisteria.

    From his first day of college, Jean Kirschtein is determined to be different: the guy he always wanted to be. The student who gets good grades without trying, the painter whose art blows everyone away, the cool kid, the guy who gets all the girls. He's tired of being the youngest brother in a privileged, impressive family -- the kid with no reason to be angry all the time and no plans for his life other than to paint. He's tired of being afraid of everyone, wondering if they can tell what he's hiding.

    Art college is his dream. This is his year. School, art, girls, freedom, independence, hell yeah. And then he meets his new roommate. Marco Bodt sweeps him off his feet -- or more specifically, knocks him on his ass.

    Forget Me Not is a collection of memories. It's the struggle of a boy who falls in love with someone who accepts him for who he is, when no one ever taught him how to accept himself. It's the story of choosing duty over love; family over his own failures; what he thinks is right over what he knows he wants. Told by the man who knows how the story ends, but has to make sure you know how it began.

    Summary

    Modern AU where Marco Bodt is 26, the proud owner of a flower shop in New York City, perfectly content by himself having discussions with his flowers, when the man who broke his heart six years earlier walks through the front door.

    Jean Kirschtein is a police officer, successful at his job and engaged to an amazing woman, living the dream his parents gave him. We got a straight male over here, that's right. But still, he walks past Bodt's Flowers every day just to see Marco's name and remember the boy he met in college, the boy he left. When it's Marco himself behind the counter, Jean's entire cookie-cutter perfect world changes.

    Wisteria is about a police officer that finds an excuse to buy flowers every day just to see the shop owner blush. It's also the story of love, and whether it can survive the tests of timing, fear, and duty to others.
