    Summary

    A reworking of Stephanie Laurens' A Secret Love. Lord Arthur Morwellan is desperate -- otherwise he would never have approached such a dangerous gentleman as Mr Gabriel Eames. While they grew up together, a misguided fight in their youth resulted in their estrangement from each other. But Arthur knows that Eames is the only person who can help him now, and he must find a way to gain his assistance -- even if it means deceiving him as to the true identity of the person in need. But what happens when Eames discovers his shocking secret?

    Summary

    Arthur meets a far-too-appealing stranger when he brings a foundling kitten to Arthur's pet store. This is their story. Or, as zolac_no_miko said to me, [It] is all gerbils and pigtails and fluttering hearts.

    Summary

    A story that starts with a spiral, ends with a fire, and is stained with ink and blood in the middle.

    (In other words, a tattoo shop AU that totally took on a mind of its own.)

    Summary

    It doesn’t matter that they’ve been virtually inseparable since they met last summer at Patrick’s house, when the idea of having a real band was still a pipe dream. It doesn’t matter that they’re polar opposites who shade in each other’s missing colors. It doesn’t matter that sometimes Pete will look at Patrick in a certain way, the way he did just now, that makes it seem like Patrick’s stifled, constantly beaten-down feelings may be reciprocated. None of that matters.

    At least, that’s what Patrick tells himself.

    ###

    Patrick graduates from high school. Pete climbs through a window. They watch a sunset and kiss under a concrete dock near a beach in downtown Chicago. And somewhere along the way, they realize what Patrick's mom and Joe have already accepted: that they're destined to be together.
