    Summary

    Adora, anxious to get a fresh start after the death of her parents and twin brother in a car accident, moves to the small town of Bright Moon. She’s far from happy about it and just wants to forget about her ongoing complications from the accident, graduate, and get out again.

    Catra is just as desperate to get out of Bright Moon herself. Stuck in a house with an emotionally abusive mother and keeping a lot of secrets, Catra knows that the only way she’ll ever feel okay is if she gets the hell out. After a string of awkward encounters, both are perfectly fine with keeping a mutual avoidance policy in place.

    But then the first body is found, and Catra and Adora are thrown together in grizzly circumstances where one thing is certain.

    Nothing will ever be the same again.

    Summary

    The life he came from wasn’t this. Not Karl; the neon of his shirt, the unkempt laces, the pink on his nails, the shifting sound of driveway pebbles beneath every step. Not the neighbor boy with shorts that rode a little too high on his legs, the subtle tan to his skin promising that he dressed like this all the time.

    This was not what George knew. He felt muddled.

    In the summer of 1995, George moves away from home with an intent to set himself free. He didn’t predict the unkempt confidence of the boy next door, or how complicated he’d make him feel.

    Summary

    In 2005, Rey Johnson has it all - she recently graduated from college, has a well-paying engineering job, and just bought a townhouse in Chandrila, VA, where she attended high school. She certainly didn't move back there to see how former best friend and maybe-something-more Ben Solo is doing. Not after he betrayed her.

    However, when she sees Leia's ad in the paper listing his old Ford Falcon for sale, Rey jumps at the chance to own such a classic car (no other reason, obviously). Once she buys it, she finds that Ben left behind his treasure trove of mixtapes...including one she's never seen before labeled "For Rey".

    It's a mid-90s/mid-2000s AU, filled with flannel, grunge, AOL Instant Messenger, Ben Solo's A+ decision making, and Rey's flawless processing of emotions.

    Summary

    “It’s really not all that interesting,” the tired boy protested, shaking his head again.

    The sober teen crossed his arms, shrugging.

    "I don’t really care," he said before mumbling. "I like the sound of your voice anyway."

    In his befuddled state, the boy tried to hide his hot growing cheeks, too tired and drunk to object to his friend again. He groaned loudly.

    “Alright. Fine.”

    or

    Tommy finds himself in Ranboo's bedroom, beat up, drunk and asking his friend for a hand.

    Summary

    Ben stares at himself in the floor-length mirror, wearing nothing but the electric-blue Speedos he bought specifically for this little American adventure. He worked hard on his body for this; not that he doesn't always, but still. He looks good. Puffing his chest out, he strides out of the bathroom with a towel draped over one shoulder.

    A horrified gasp greets him as he passes through the sitting room of the Stafford's presidential suite, his wide-eyed boss sitting up from her perch on the sofa, the twins whipping their heads around so fast to stare at him that they look like a bright orange flash.

    "Ben! What. Are. You. Doing?!" demands Ms. Rose.

    "Going for a dip, Madam. Do you mind?"

    His boss has more to say, but none of the words reach his ears as he suddenly comes face-to-face with a total stranger, a blush across her spray of freckles, wide hazel eyes flitting slowly down from his face to his chest to his abs to... well, down, baggy overalls, messy ponytail, and all, and he's certain that this is the future Mrs. Benjamin Solo. He's always been an absurd romantic.

    Summary

    A modern AU set during the Don't Ask, Don't Tell years of the US military. Geralt is a former soldier, Jaskier owns a gay bar. They meet on the day that Geralt leaves the base for good, with nothing but a dishonorable discharge and his backpack. Features themes of found family, love, and healing from violence.

    A huge thanks to Stressedspidergirl, you are a constant source of inspiration and a wonderful co-creator. It would not be the same fic without you, thank you!! You're amazing!!

    Please note that this story can be pretty intense at times, especially in later chapters. It deals with (internalized) homophobia, depression, trauma, broken families, AIDS, and a whole host of other topics that can be uncomfortable or triggering. There is also, however, fluff, deep family bonds, humor, and smut ahead. Enjoy!

    We are back off hiatus! Chapter 12 is up and 13 is in the works!

    Summary

    “What were you listening to”, she asked.

    Tobin wasn’t sure what to make of the interaction. Most of the kids in school just avoided her and she never did anything to change that, in fact, she preferred it.

    “It’s a mixtape… that I made”.

    “Really?”, the new girl’s eyes lit up even more than they already were. “How’d you do it?”

    Tobin shrugged her shoulders. “I listen to the radio and when they play a song I like, I record it”.

    She nods. “So what song was playing before I interrupted?”
