    Summary

    Summer 1980, Allegheny County, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Levi Ackerman has been drifting through life aimlessly since he graduated high school two years earlier. The son of a German-Jewish immigrant family who fled Berlin after the onset of World War II, Levi finds himself constantly at odds with his uncle, Kenny who still bears the scars of the catastrophic war that took the lives of most of his family. When an old friend from high school offers Levi the opportunity to bring some excitement into his life by stealing from rich, white-collar workers in the Pittsburgh suburbs, Levi jumps at the chance to shake up his humdrum existence. However, one of their jobs goes terribly wrong, and Levi is caught stealing from a young, cerulean eyed hot-shot lawyer. Rather than turn Levi into the police, Erwin offers him an unpaid assistantship with his law firm to make up for Levi’s attempted theft. As Levi is dragged into Erwin's sordid world, he realizes the divisions in his Pennsylvania community are far more treacherous than he ever knew. When a string of anti-semitic attacks start occurring in the city, Levi begins to question his growing bond with Erwin, where the young lawyer’s loyalties lie, and his own place in society.

    Summary

    The stars circled above them close enough to touch, yet Delphine's head remained lolled to the side; eyes glued to Cosima. Oui, she thought, blinking slowly at the moon reflecting off of the girl’s glasses. Oui, I could lay here all summer. Je pourrais rester ici pour toujours.

    Summary

    Blood trickled from his nose, staining his lips crimson as Tenko gazed down at his bloodied knuckles. His hands were shaking on his lap. (Monsters in real life don't live underneath your bed—or in your closet. They exist in human flesh.) He couldn't remember hitting anything, but the throbbing in his hands reminded him that he did. (Every jeer, every judgmental stare, every cutting sting of the belt....) How could he forget? Every nerve in his being screamed, Remember, remember.... (He wanted them all to disappear. He wanted to disappear.... But that low, insidious voice whispered to him how much he was wanted.) A voice told him it was alright to forget.

    Summary

    Kim Taehyung shows up at his door at 5am in the morning wearing a fucking suit.

    Jeongguk squints at him with tired eyes. Its only when cold air comes in through the open door does he realize that he’s only wearing boxers and bunny slippers.

    He blinks, suddenly wide awake.

    “Fuck,” he spits, stepping backwards. “Fuck you. Why are you here?”

    Taehyung's eyes are dark and narrowed. His jaw clenches, and Jeongguk is painfully, painfully aware of the cold and his morning wood and how hot Taehyung is.

    “I - I mean,” Jeongguk rushes out, jaw dropping. “Oh God. Not fuck you. Can I unfuck you? Oh my God.”

    (or, taehyungs a mob boss, and jeongguk gets stuck in a mafia war)

    Summary

    A year after her delayed graduation from Hogwarts, established in a promising Ministry career, and beginning to put the past behind her, Hermione Granger's world collapses into a single moment's careless mishap.

    Uncertain if she is dead, dying, or truly thrown out of her own time, she finds herself revisiting an earlier world. Partly from exhaustion and exasperation with a lifetime of following the rules, partly because she's convinced it's all in her head and none of it will matter anyway, she decides that, this time, things will be different.
