    Summary

    ,,I just moved to Moscow and I don't know many people here.” Karen explains himself.
    ,,Oh” Andrey makes. ,,Well if you want to get to know people you probably should not ask me for lunch.”
    ,,Why?” Karen asks and his smile is honest and confused. A smile only someone could have who comes from a small village. A place where everybody knows each other and every one is friendly and says hello on the streets. A place so different from Moscow.
    ,,I am … I am not exactly popular.” Andrey says and looks away. Great, he knows the guy for two days and he already managed to come out as a loser. The main reason why he is not popular is probably himself and not others.
    Karen shrugs his shoulders. ,,Who cares?”

    ---

    Or: It is 1988 in Moscow. Karen is a promising boxer that just moved to Moscow. Andrey is a promising tennis player, struggeling with his past. They meet and everything changes ....

    Summary

    Stede Bonnet is trying to get home to Chicago for Christmas, but his plane is grounded in Wichita and he can't seem to escape a particular leather clad, tattooed man. (Basically it's Planes, Trains and Automobiles but gay)

    “Here you are,” he said grabbing a key from behind the desk. “Last room in the motel.”

    Stede’s eyes went wide. “Last room?”

    The room was worst than he imagined, with cigarette burns on the comforter, stained carpets, moldy shower curtain. And one bed. There was only one bed.

    Stede glanced at Ed, who returned his astonished look with a grin.

    “Wanna take a shower?” Ed asked.

    “What? No,” said Stede a little too quickly.

    “I meant do you want to go first,” he smirked.

    Summary

    Islington, 1989. Stede Bonnet’s knowledge of London’s gay scene is lacking in everything but rose-tinted glasses, as he leaves his marriage to run a halfway-house for ‘waifs and strays’ in the city centre.

    Izzy Hands, the best mate of Bonnet’s new paramour, has been without those glasses for years.

    OR: an 80’s AU from two different sides of the coin. Also, Ed runs a Greasy Spoon café, and Lucius has a great deal of shit to outrun.

    Summary

    “I’ll always know you, Rey. You’ll always be the little dragonfly I found in the creek.”

    “I’m not the little girl I used to be anymore," Rey countered.

    “Oh, believe me, I know,” Ben replied softly, lips parting as his eyes scanned across her frame with an intensity that made her shiver.

    Summary

    Different men got different things out of their calling. Some leaned into the steady pulse of being scholars, digging a warm little burrow for themselves out of theories and books and academic debate, and settling down inside to sleep the winter away. Some found it an outlet for their rage and fear and self-contempt by weaving wild sermons against the bugbear of the day; whether it be sex, drugs, or rock ‘n roll. Cobb Vanth had no such ambitions.

    He’d said he wanted a quiet life, a place to stow himself away, and a way to make his momma’s soul happy. And he’s got it, hell.

    Or: A new man starts coming to mass at Father Cobb Vanth’s small, unremarkable parish in Northern Virginia, and brings a sea-change in his wake.

    Summary

    Contrary to popular belief, the big bang never existed. Instead, the universe was created by the intertwined hands of a burnt-out artist and an aspiring writer.

    (or, the one where Albedo is hired by Kaeya to be the illustrator of his first book. They go off course along the way, but things are never truly written in the stars, aren't they?)

    Summary

    Summary

    “Well… I died. There’s nothing I can do about that, right? It took me long years to make peace with that. I’m not about to deny it. Speaking about how, though, it is traumatic for some ghosts...” Her face pulled into a concentrated one and Adora frowned.
    “I’m sorry.” Catra simply shrugged and kept looking around the room. “Are you here to haunt me?” Adora scratched her arm at the sudden fear she felt at the possible answer.
    “Not unless you want me to.” Catra grinned at her.

     

    When Adora wrote her thesis centered on Oral History titled "Beyond the Eyes of the Living, How the Dead Speak" she didn't mean it literally. Hell, she didn't even think she would be offering to solve this Magicat's murder.

    Summary

    “I don’t want to hear it hyung.” He was angry, Sunghoon could tell. Yet his voice flowed like honey, his words sweet. “I know what you are going to say. I know you didn’t mean it… But it still hurts.”

    “I’m sorry.” Is all he managed, while he closed his eyes. “I’m sorry Sunoo.”

    It’s the early 80’s in Korea, and upcoming prodigy and figure skater Park Sunghoon has nothing but his youth ahead of him. At the blooming age of eighteen, on his last year of school and skating career taking off, he can’t help but feel on top of the world. Though soon he begins to taste the bitterness of life and comes to know that life isn’t as beautiful as it once was. However, despite confusion arising in his heart, there is also Kim Sunoo, with whom he keeps running forward. With fire in their hearts, they face the powerlessness of their beautiful youth that teaches them that in between friends, family, compromises and promises, it is okay to fall and cry. That is what they find to be the beauty of the moment.
