    Summary

    Castiel Shurley, pen name Castiel Novak, was once a confessional poetry wunderkind. Now, though, he’s 34 and hasn’t published a new collection in almost seven years. He can bemoan the vagaries of writer’s block and the challenges of parenting a teenage son while teaching full-time all he wants, but excuses aren’t going to impress his agent, his publisher, or his tenure committee. He’s in serious danger of becoming a washed-up literary fluke before even seeing middle age.

    At the end of his rope, Castiel repairs to his sister Anna’s vacation home on Lake Pend Oreille, hoping a change of scenery will ungum his creative works. On one of their first trips into town, Jack strikes up a conversation in the parking lot of the local grocery store with the most beautiful man Castiel has ever seen, and that’s when Castiel feels it: his muse coming back after a half-decade of dormancy.

    No matter what, he has to see this man again somehow. Too bad he has no idea who he is.

    Summary

    Ranboo thought of himself as a rather indifferent person- for lack of a better word- when it came to most things. He loves his parents and they try their best, but they aren't always there. While his friends assume the worst, Ranboo doesn't correct them, unsure how to tell them the truth without making them worry further.


    Or, Ranboo tries to keep up and not lose himself in the labyrinth that he's constructed himself, made of white lies and reassurances to keep his friends off his case about the nature of his living situation, while also struggling with his worsening memory problems.

    However, he soon comes to find himself watching his carefully built maze collapsing in on itself, and soon, he may have no choice but to come clean

    Summary

    I can get bored really easily and today's idea that came from the boredom is this! A modern muggle AU where all the Marauders Era characters work at a grocery store together. Is a lot of it going to be dramatic fluff? Yes. But is it going to include some of the greatest ships of all time? Yes. So if you're into funny and dramatic entertainment to pass the time, then you should read this. You are very welcome. CW: There will be some swearing and drinking throughout, but nothing sexual, that's not this type of fic

    Summary

    "Thanks for calling the Sleepy Bois Supermarket, This is Tommy!"

    "Hello, I-"

    "Oh, sorry. This is actually an automated message, dickhead. Don't tell Dad that I called you a dickhead, I might lose my job! Anyway, hang up now, or I'll do it first. Tubbo? No, get out I'm pre-recording an automated message because everybody in this place is anti-social except for me and Dad."

    "Hello! Go away, please. We are introverted and afraid of social interaction!" A new voice chimed in, Tubbo swatted Tommy away who was shouting curses at him in the background.

    "What are you doing?" Somebody else had walked into the room, actually, make that two people.

    "Who're you talkin' to?" Technoblade and Wilbur stood in the doorway with their arms crossed, looking as twin-ly as ever.

    "Tommy is breaking the rules, he's setting up a recording so that he can slack off and not answer the phone!" Tubbo held the phone out as he yelled, not wanting to startle anybody who was still listening.

    "What was that, mate?" Philza poked his head into the doorway.

    "Bye!"

    Summary

    He fidgeted with the buttons of his jacket, the right words to babble at that moment not seeming to want to leave his mouth. With a little bit of courage, and maybe also a lot of accumulated excitement since they left the house, Keigo approached his lover and rested his chin on Enji's pec, eyes of an abandoned puppy giving him an innocent look before he easily broke that image in seconds by saying

    “I wanna eat you out so bad right now”

    or

    The one time Keigo couldn't wait till they got home, so they end up in a dirty bathroom with Enji's ass out in its full glory and ready to be played with.

    Summary

    While he tried to do the mental math, he was distracted enough to not pay attention to where he was going. Tommy tripped, falling over another pallet truck and into the pallets stacked on top of it. He blinked himself back into focus, barely noticing the way his knee and elbow ached. He… was stuck. He’d gotten entangled with the mass of empty pallets and metal parts and quickly found out he was unable to move. His ankle was caught under the truck he was pulling and his body was weighed down by the pallets that had tumbled off of it and onto him. His vision was still swimming, and he felt a familiar sense of panic set in. He knew someone heard that. Now they were going to come over here and see him like this and then they would know something was wrong-

    “Tommy? You alright?” Wilbur’s voice called.

    Summary

    Tommy knew that messing with the most important shipment of the quarter was a bad, awful idea.

    Now he was alone, at eleven pm, nothing to defend him against the cold as he pulled in shopping carts but a thin red hoodie.

    Luckily, he had a few people in his corner for him
