    The year is 1973. All Dove Rogers wanted was a fun summer. Just one last hoorah before being thrust into adult life.

    Summary

    Ben Solo is a well-known pastry chef in Las Vegas but he quits after receiving word that his grandmother had bequeathed her beloved bakery and homestead in his name. As part of the stipulation for him to inherit, he'll have to run the bakery and restore the farmhouse. Of course he couldn't do all that alone so he posts an ad in the local community board. He has absolutely no idea that his new handyman housemate was in fact a woman.

    Sweet-toothed Rey is a scholarship student that needs cheap lodgings. She exchanges her skills as a handyman for a discount at the farmhouse that's being renovated. It's a pretty good deal too seeing as her housemate loved to bake. Who else would benefit from all those experimental desserts?

    Hilarity ensues as City Boy tries very hard to Countryside and not fall in love.

    Summary

    It really hadn’t meant to turn out this way, to get so out of hand but what could he do when faced with that smile? The sparkle in those stormy eyes that lit like lightning down Wangji’s spine? Say yes, of course. Every. Damn. Time.

Everything's going well until Wangji is literally bowelled over by the love of his life, local tattoo artist Wei Ying. Wangji isn't good with words and feelings, but Wei Ying is good with tattoos... and, well, that might be a way for Wangji to get his message across because love has made him an idiot, it seems.

    OR

    Love is hard, but tattoos are easy?

When he finds a wounded creature at the beach, his plans change. Because the creature is half-human, half-shark and is currently bleeding out in his bathtub.

Three years ago his brother Touya took his life by the cliffs, months later the marine research laboratory was built on top of his watery grave. And Shouto is convinced this can't be a coincidence.

    Kaminari is facing the most miserable summer of his life.

On top of that, his roommate for the summer is Shinsou, a smug smartass working for the hated laboratory of the Bay.

    Touya is dead. But Dabi lives. And he is out for blood.

    Summary

    This is completely based upon the Horror AU by @RottyPunk on Twitter!

    George is the heir to a large fortune, but before he starts being a Responsible Adult, he decides to spend a year in a coastal Oregon town called Nethermire.

    Obviously, he meets some pretty interesting people: Wilbur, a PI with a mysterious past; Sapnap, a local college student who becomes George's best friend and always smells like campfire smoke; Technoblade, who George doesn't trust for some reason; Skeppy, a boy richer than George's parents and louder than the ocean; and Dream, seemingly the most normal person in the town.

    Upon encountering something he can't quite explain in the woods, George slowly realizes that his year in Nethermire won't be as quiet as he had hoped.

    If you've ever watched the show "Midnight Texas", this story is lowkey that.

    Nethermire is inspired mostly by Brookings, Oregon.

    Summary

    Neil peered into the dark of the forest and knew with creeping certainty that something peered right back.

    “I am not afraid of you.”

    It was watching him, waiting for him to step closer.

    “You will not make me afraid.”

    He raised his chin.

    “I have faced worse than you.”

    And with his final words, he grinned his father’s grin.

    “And I will protect them. Even if it means burning this entire forest to the ground.”

    Summary

    High School A/U - based on Naley from One Tree Hill - with twists.

    After years of bouncing around, it was the longest he'd ever spent in one place. Almost four years in the small town of Alicante, and although he has gotten used to it, and it's definitely the best living conditions he has had in his almost 18 years on earth, Magnus still couldn’t stop himself from counting the days until he left the place.

    Robert Lightwood, the mayor of Alicante, used to be the star basketball player at Alicante-High, and was now living out his glory days through his son. Since he was very young, even before he could walk or talk, Alec’s house was basketball driven, it was never a question of “if”, but more of when he will start playing - which was as soon as he could.

    What happens when a cruel bet bring the two boys together?
