    Summary

    Grantaire, having developed an allergy to paint thinner, becomes a sculptor.
    Ostensibly a Pygmalion AU with Enjolras as Galatea, really just canon era bohemian artist nonsense.

     

    Enjolras sighed tolerantly. "As long as the cartridges you cast aren't counterfeit."
    Grantaire smiled. "Of all the things I cast, cartridges are the only things which are not counterfeit, for they are cartridges themselves and not likenesses of cartridges."
    Enjolras touched his own cheek, almost unconsciously, and frowned.

    Summary

    " The brush of his thumb, slow and soft across Taehyung’s bottom lip was as warm and lovely as ever. Taehyung swore some of the warmth sunk into him, that a piece of whatever Seokjin had given him didn’t leave. There was still a flush of red wine on his lip as he leaned closer, his face nearer than it had been since he had dug Taehyung’s eyebrows out of the marble."

    Or, Taehyung was a statue, built to be admired. His creator had no idea that he'd been admiring him, too. Inspired by Pygmalion and Galatea.

    Summary

    Yixing is an artist, and a good one at that. But when Junmyeon brings some marble to the studio for him to work on, he finds himself lost in the things this simple stone awakens in him. Things that, in every sense of logic and sanity, don’t make any sense—and shouldn’t really be happening at all.

    Summary

    “Would you still have killed me, had you known?” That traitorous voice speaks again.
    “I would have had to. You were a witness, a liability. Even if we had not met tonight, you would always have died by my hands.”
    “But would I have needed to? I would have seen you, but would I truly have been so difficult to mold?”
    “The true sculptor knows that he is not molding a shape, but freeing it from the stone it is encased in.”

    Summary

    Beautiful. It rises unbidden from the depths of his mind, and Kazuya quickly takes a step back to look around and see if someone had spoken. But no; he is the only living thing in his studio at the moment.

    Setting his tools down, he gently raises his left hand and cups the statue’s cold jaw, thumb smoothing over its sharp cheekbone in a tender caress. As if realizing what he has done, he quickly snatches his hand away, his own cheeks tingeing red in mortification.

    What the hell, Kazuya chastises himself. It...he is just a statue.

    Renowned sculptor Miyuki Kazuya falls in love with a statue of his own making. But there is more to his work than meets the eye.

    Summary

    Writers hope to bring their characters to life, but Hux never imagined it could happen like this.

    [excerpt]:
    Hux lets out a yelp and scrambles to sit. His legs get tangled in his sheets which has the unfortunate effect of dumping him, ass first, onto the floor, but that's the least of his worries because holy fuck, there's a living, breathing person in his bed.

    "Hux?" Apparently, the stranger is concerned for Hux's well-being, if the worry in his very deep and very sexy voice is any indication. "Are you okay?" A head suddenly appears from over the edge of the bed, and Hux stares, dazed.

    Because the person who's staring back, lush-lipped and tousled-maned and with biceps the size of Hux's waist, is heartbreakingly gorgeous. Mouthwateringly so.

    "Errrrgh," Hux manages before snapping his mouth shut.
