    Summary

    It’s not really a hotel, but it makes him think of a brothel. Maybe it used to be. Jared doesn’t know its history, he hasn’t lived here long enough.

    Everything’s old timey on the outside like a lot of older Bourbon businesses, neon scarlet lights, crumbling brick. The teepeed sign half out in the road says LIVE JAZZ and STRIPTEASE, boasts the most beautiful girls in the world.

     

    (Jensen's a dancer in a New Orleans burlesque club. Jared only knows him as Jenny.)

    Summary

    “If you hadn’t noticed, I don’t have many friends,” Louis whispers, the blossom of insecurity in his stomach unfurling and clawing its way into his throat.

    Harry is silent for a long time, and then he speaks; a soft, slow uncurl that makes Louis’ stomach shake. “I’ll be your friend.”

    -

    1970’s AU. In a tiny town in Idaho, Louis’ life is changed forever by the arrival of a curious stranger.

    Summary

    University!AU (kind of, very little University actually involved). Louis and Harry have decided, as Harry is going off to Australia for way too long, to be non-exclusive. Now all Louis has to do is actually find someone other than Harry that he wants to fuck.

    Established H/L, everything else develops. THERE IS A LOT OF POLYAMORY. This is, at heart, an OT5 fic with some pairings more focused on than others. It's a little angsty but it is mostly just people being happy about being in love Basically written as an antidote/supplement to all those OT5 fics with lots of porn but no examination of the feelings involved.

    Summary

    “I want Harry to be my captain,” the dragon says after a long moment, and Harry can feel bitter disappointment radiating from the women.

    “I’ve never even seen a dragon before,” Harry tells it, somewhat gently.

    “I’ve never seen a human before today,” the dragon counters. “I want you as my captain, or I won’t have one.”

    Or, Harry accidentally becomes the captain of a rare dragon, Louis is assigned to train her, and dragon racing is a popular sport.

    Summary

    Liam breathes hotly through his nose, eyes twitching shut as he squeezes a bit more on Zayn’s neck. “Do you know how dangerous what you’re doing is?”

    Zayn draws in his own ragged breath. “Do you?”


    Zayn is a doctoral student who goes to great lengths to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Liam is heading the biggest serial murder investigation London has seen in half a century. And before this, he'd never been sent a love note via corpse.
