    Summary

    Aristotle isn't impressed with his first month of college. He spends his nights buried in a book and bathing in solitude, avoiding any opportunity to branch out.

    Dante wants to try everything. He doesn't want to sit on the sidelines and watch everyone else live their lives while he stands by.

    When Dante meets Ari, he makes it his mission for the two of them to have the true "college experience"- going to parties, getting drunk, breaking a few laws, and maybe falling in love along the way.

    Summary

    This is a NSFW extended scene that comes at the end of Chapter 27 of The day after (and the day after that). Like most of my extended scenes, it can stand alone (though I do hope you'll read the whole fic from which it originates!). I put the last few paragraphs of that chapter at the beginning to provide context. The asterisk * denotes the beginning of the new material.

    Summary

    Rated "Mature" due to eventual plot events. May change to "Explicit".

    In an alternate universe where Mexico has become a monarchy, the Mexican Empire’s Prince and heir to the throne, Aristóteles Mendoza, is sick and tired of having to appear and act perfect for the sake of the crumbling kingdom’s image. And being expected to meet and marry his soulmate within the year only adds to his misery. But when Dante Quintana, Mexico’s most outstanding artist, is summoned to El Paso, Mexico’s capital, to paint a new portrait of the Prince, Aristóteles might just make a new friend for the very first time.

    And he might also recruit said friend to help him investigate a mysterious photograph of an unfamiliar young prince that resembles his parents, a feat that leads the boys on an adventure filled with the unraveling of a million secrets, a revolution that turns the kingdom upside down, and the development of an unlikely romance.

    Or: Ari's a prince. Dante's a peasant. A royalty/soulmate AU.

    Dedicated to lostintheverse. Thank you so much for your friendship and letting me ramble about all my ideas. You're a truly amazing soul.

    Summary

    I kissed Dante.

    And Dante kissed me back.

    And just like that, I no longer wanted to hide away in my room, or listen to overrated songs in the radio, or look outside my window to find someone I had pushed away.

    Just like that, I did not want to be alone anymore.

    Summary

    I love two parallel reality concepts: One, that we have certain relationships, certain outcomes that are fated, and the paths we choose to get to each one are where our free choice comes in. But for every incarnation of us (assuming there are many), these certain cosmic promises always come about, sooner or later.

    The other possibility with parellel realities is that our paths tend to be the same, but every outcome that can happen, does, so the longer we are incarnate, the more our lives branch out into infinite tendrills, and nothing is promised except the journey.

    This was a published fic (Rain), but I'm turning it a collection, with each chapter being its own short story that is a parallel reality for A & D. In the vast majority of them, they end up together, because frankly Ari/Dante is my safe space and I need it. But once in a while I'll get brave and throw in a reality where it doesn't work out for them - at least not in the fic.

    So if you've read Rain, check out the next chapters as they unfold. Each its own ficlet, unrelated to the ones before and after.

    This is a NSFW "extended scene" from chapter 13 of my fic The day after (and the day after that). It's written so that it weaves right in to the chapter.

    Summary

    Ari and Dante experiment with kissing, but we see it at a new angle.

    This is a script re-imagining of two select scenes from Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe. It was originally written for a college class with the goal of providing new insight into Ari's emotions that the book doesn't give. In other words, a sweet kiss scene and feeling confessions with some new lighting direction! ;)
