    Summary

    Roy sleeps with Riza when he’s drowning in guilt, when he needs someone who understands the burden of flame alchemy, the pain of it. When he needs to run away from the fire, he goes to Maes.

    (The rather more angst-filled prequel to Dress Blues. Can definitely be read alone, though.)

    Summary

    The sun was bearing down on the park, on Andrew, on Neil Josten’s sketch, his auburn hair and blue, blue, blue eyes.

    After a dozen tries, Andrew clicked through his photos. All the way to the first one. The one where Neil was staring straight at the camera.

    Andrew’s breath caught.

    Summary

    I7 has grown in success, sure, but things aren't looking so great for the recently award-winning idol unit. A flu epidemics has ravaged their ranks and issues have kept piling up from there, to the point only Tamaki, Iori and Tsumugi are still standing to tend to everything else.
    As everything starts to get back in order again, the managing duo faces things head-up. It'd be a shame if something was to happen to any of them now that everything's getting better, right?
    Sometimes, it'd be better if you didn't listen to your own thoughts.

    Summary

    Jeno can smell bad intentions.
    Usually, people smell putrid to him.
    Like decomposing flesh.
    But Renjun smells like sweet but tart apples.
    Like summer nights,
    Like blooming chrysanthemums,
    Like everything Jeno ever wanted but didn't know he could have.

    Summary

    "A dream assassination is the perfect way to murder MacGyver," Murdoc promises HIT. "After all, nightmares are basically irrational- and that just so happens to be my territory. He's too much the scientist. He'll never see this coming."

    What's to stand in his way? Nothing.

    (Excepting a certain plucky niece with dreams of her own, that is...)

    Summary

    “I don’t even know where to fucking start with that sentence, Stiles.”

    “Any normal, good-mannered werewolf would start by renouncing their homophobia so they can support their friend in the pursuit of pastures peen, Derek,” Stiles says primly, standing up and shaking his head forlornly. Derek rubs his hands over his face, which doesn’t help.

    Pastures peen, Jesus Christ.

    ***

    Sometimes it’s not so bad to give someone else control.

    Summary

    There can be worse things, Rey supposes, than being stuck in this English Romantic Poetry class. Professor Ren—or if you prefer, Professor Byron—is dark, moody, and mysterious. But they run into each other constantly, blessed by fate or sheer luck, and she can no longer deny that there's something inside of both of them that only the other can understand.

    Or: Romantic poetry and conversations over black coffee. Dark and light, parchment and leather, push and pull. A companionship borne through snippets. And eventually: how to face the past.

    Summary

    "Proofing, also sometimes called final fermentation, is the specific term for allowing dough to rise after it has been shaped and before it is baked."

    Less than a year has passed since the final battle, and the Ministry is already up to its old tricks. Harry would very much like them to stop ignoring due process, tossing people in Azkaban, controlling the press, and menacing the populace with dementors.

    He would also like, if at all possible, to bake a passable loaf of bread.

    or: a story where Harry bakes a lot, argues with a house elf, and overthrows the magical government - not necessarily in that order.

    Summary

    Bucky Barnes has finally come home.

    A year and a half after the events on the helicarriers, desperate for a safe haven and a chance to finally rest, Bucky takes Steve at his word and returns to the dilapidated row house in Brooklyn where he and Steve once lived.

    Room by room, he slowly starts to fix up the house as he works on his own recovery, while Steve starts to circle closer and closer. It's not easy; it was never going to be easy, and as Steve and Bucky draw even closer to each other in their dance, there are new steps to learn and old wounds to heal.

    But nothing has ever been able to stop these two boys from Brooklyn, and as they start to share food, trips to Home Depot, late night runs and eventually laughter, it turns out that Bucky isn't the only one who needs help healing.

    That's only if Steve can get Bucky to believe in himself and the life they have started to build together, and convince Bucky to stay.

    Summary

    "The heart of the tale and the ideas behind it are simple. Time has altered and condensed their nuances, made them more than story, greater than the sums of their parts. But that requires time. The truest tales require time and familiarity to become what they are." -The Night Circus, by Erin Morgenstern

     

    Within a mysterious circus, its Inventor and Illusionist fall deeply into love.

    A Cirque Des Mille Soleils story.

    Summary

    Junmyeon is someone who has always doubted himself. Dubious of the colours and the light of the outer world, because of the way it threatens the monochrome patterns in his mind. His world was all smoke and mirrors, cold marble and blurred reflections. That is, until he takes a risk, and falls in love with a lanky boy with a gruff voice and silly smile.
    He loses himself in the colours that he sees in the boy's soul, in the galaxy he finds within, its colours vibrant and beckoning.

    He thought he was the darkness whose existence made the stars shine brighter. But to Yifan, he was the stardust that completed his galaxy. And it's only when Yifan leaves, taking away everything Junmyeon has ever known, that Junmyeon realizes who he's meant to be. But the question is, where does Yifan belong in the new universe Junmyeon is constructing within his mind?

    Love can burn out like quickly a flame, but old stars don't die so easily.

    I can’t be the only one who found that flashback scene of Hannibal feeding Will Abigail’s ear erotic.
