    Summary

    Oh Sehun is your average stressed, depressed, somewhat well dressed post-grad who has managed to land a project at a biomedical engineering lab. The research is interesting, but even more so is his love life—especially since not-so-average PhD student Kim Jongin's blushing, shy smile makes Sehun wish Son Youngjae would stop flirting with him in the walk-in freezer every morning.

    Summary

    "Slowly but surely, their weeks start to take shape. It’s ass-backward course design, and Ava still has no idea how they’re going to frame the class or if there’s any thread running through it that isn’t just 'texts your two professors managed not to kill each other over,' but it’s something. Progress."

    Summary

    Five are the wildfires
    Playing through the night
    We know one of them
    Will surely have to die

    Four are the starlights
    You have left behind
    Their pain is a memory
    that shines so clear and bright

    Three are the years
    the deadly pass of time
    Regret is a bloom
    That rips your soul apart

    Two are the people
    that answer to your name
    the mask of the past
    you are now left to tame.

    One is the earth,
    the chaos and the dark
    the shape of the void
    that wants to eat your heart.

    Summary

    Shelby Goodkind is getting her PhD in queer studies, but her parents don’t know that yet. Then she meets Toni Shalifoe, a PhD candidate who’s in her GSS seminar. When they continue dominating class with their (frankly, pedantic) arguments, their instructor presents them with a punishment: they have to co-write the final seminar paper worth 80% of their grade. Feelings come to the surface, and Shelby has to face her family’s disapproval more directly than she ever has before.

    OR: the AU where Shelby and Toni are grad students who hate each other but love each other, and Shelby learns how to deal with her family trauma for real.

    lightly inspired by "matilda" by harry styles

    Summary

    Rey looked at the envelope. It was thick, heavy paper, and reminded her of a wedding invitation. Her address was written in calligraphy, in dark blue ink. The return address only said “Exegol House”.

    Summary

    Tom slides his finger under the envelope flap that Greg has tucked in rather than sealed shut, and flicks it open. The card inside is quaintly retro, a picture of two eggs with cutesy faces holding hands in a frying pan. The frying pan is surrounded by a red heart trimmed with white lace, and written in block capitals along the edge reads ‘MAYBE I’M JUST SMALL FRY, BUT I’M A GOOD EGG WITH A HEART OF GOLD, BE MY VALENTINE’.

    Summary

    Professor Thomas A. Anderson and Dr. Tiffany R. Chadwick meet again. Technically a spinoff of chapter three of my other equally ridiculous fic, I shall suffer and act again.

    (I kind of wrote myself into a corner because I said they had never really interacted before the events of that fic, so let's just say this is another version of that same sim???)

    Summary

    Publish or perish has never been more apt. Professor Aziraphale Eastwise finds himself in the privileged position to engage with a Xenoerpeton anthropoides (or merlotl). An elusive, semiaquatic evolutionary cousin shrouded in mystery. And the answers he receives aren’t what he expects of a simple creature—even one who is human-like.

    Crowley is a social pariah among his kind who is undeniably funny, curious, sensitive, and intelligent. His discovery of the depths of merlotl thought could cement his fame and renown for decades to come, but this opportunity comes at a cost—Aziraphale is trapped in a cave with slowly dwindling supplies and rapidly diminishing hope. The longer he’s trapped, the more he finds himself considering questions of a forbidden nature. Questions that can’t possibly be ethical. Or wanted. Besides, surely it isn’t productive to even consider what attraction or mating behaviors look like in merlotl. After all, if a primate and an amphibious creature fell in love, where would they live? And Aziraphale needs rescue soon.

    Or: How budget cuts lead to the discovery of a century—and Aziraphale's heart. A story about falling in love with the subject of one’s research grant.

    Summary

    Greg is bemused as to why Professor Wambsgans is even speaking to him. Tom Wambsgans is on track to become a tenured professor in the next three to five years, with his latest article in the New Yorker, ‘Political Debate on Primetime: The Persuasive Effect of ATN’, being the most talked about thinkpiece for the past few months. Greg has a note taped to his fridge ranking every flavor of pop tart from best to worst, that he wrote while high on a strain of weed called cherry vanilla cookie.

    Summary

    When the young idealist Sociology major Rey Johnson and the jaded and cynical Political Sciences postdoctoral fellow Ben Solo met, it was hate at first sight.

When Professor Snoke, Ben's mentor, decides to ruin Rey's life and her career, their relationship is tested – as well as their beliefs.

    Summary

    From:] Journal of Medieval Studies (jms.eds@jms.com)
    [Subject:] Ad-hoc note from the editor

    I have noticed an uncommon level of animosity in your responses to your reviewers (or rather, one reviewer in particular). I am writing to ask if you would please do your best to keep your interactions civil. In fairness, I have also sent a similar request to the reviewer you seem to have this friction with. I trust you will both try and remain more professional in the future.

    Again, thank you for submitting your work to this journal.

    Sincerely,
    James Copley, PhD
    Editor-in-Chief
    Journal of Medieval Studies
