    Summary

    "I saw him everywhere. In my classes, the library with Bunce, the food court, my favourite cafe. Hell, I even saw him in my favourite obscure record shop! Every time our eyes found each other, the air became electric with his hatred and my lust. I should’ve hated him, I should still hate him. In classes, all he did was prove that he was a moron but still raising his hand, blushing wildly when he got the answer wrong or smiling so brightly, that I truly believe an angel gets its wings every time, when he got the answer right. In the library, he was either being too loud and smiley or falling asleep whilst Bunce read silently. He never got in trouble for either, always managing to charm Mildred, the 67 year old librarian."

    When Baz and Simon first meet at a welcome party, it goes as about as well as it ever does. Yet, they're forever drawn to each other. Until Simon stops coming to University. When their lives and those of their meddling friends are thrown together again, maybe - just, maybe - they can discover why they're so intrigued by each other [despite their obvious good looks and tremendous social skills, naturally].

    Summary

    In 2013, when Gemma T. Leslieʼs final book of the Simon Snow Series was ought to be put out, Cath tried herself to give answers to all of the questions still left unsaid and to elaborate her own final chapter for her hero.

    Flash forward to 2021, in a parallel universe, here I am trying myself to do what Cath wanted to. (Only, I am real and Rainbow Rowell is too.)

    Simon Snow, The Ex Chosen One, The Blue-Eyes-Bronze-Curls-Leather-Wings-Anxiety Boy, and his dead handsome boyfriend are coming back to England after their "trip" to America.

    Things have changed and stayed the exact same way they were in America, and now itʼs up to Simon, Baz and their friends (some new, some old) to sort it all out. Will The Ex Chosen One save the day, again? Will Baz’s quest for his identity lead to the hoped conclusion? What’s Shepard’s role in this? Can Agatha and Penny see their worth, in the end?

    There's only one way to set things clear: looking for the answers at Watford.

    Summary

    What do you get when you cross an art teacher who's also a dog dad, a classic lit professor who loves blonde haired boys, and a nosy best friend who likes to play matchmaker?

    You get a soft fic with lots of fluff and romance... like this one. You should read it. Or not. I'm not your mother. But it'd make me very happy :)

    Summary

    After the war with Napoleon, all Simon wants is peace and quiet in the country with his friend Penny, but night terrors and panic attacks weren't the only surprises awaiting him back home. Dowager Lady Salisbury saw news of Simon's exploits abroad and arrived on his doorstep with the shocking revelation that he was her grandson. At his grandmother's insistence, Simon accompanied his newfound family to London, overwrought by excitement at the chance to finally belong, and anxiety from the struggle to fit his new role.
    Baz is heir to two very wealthy and well-respected families in England, but that hasn't stopped tongues from wagging. Baz has always been more interested in fashion and philosophy than in helping his father run the estate, and he refuses to settle down. Despite his recent sterling showing at Oxford, Baz's father has begun to lose all patience with his recalcitrant son. Matters went from bad to worse when Baz's fiancé threw him over only days after their engagement became public, rekindling rumours the family hoped to quash. Against his father's wishes, Baz has trooped off to London for another season with his friends, but the looming death knell of his good name has soured his last act of rebellion.

    Summary

    “Snow,” He stage-whispers. There’s only a few inches between their faces; Simon Snow smells like cinnamon and sweat and strawberry shampoo. There’s a freckle on the tip of his nose that Baz hadn’t noticed before. It’s faint, and vaguely heart-shaped. He’d like to kiss it.

    “Yeah?” It could be a trick of the light, or Baz’s hyperactive imagination, or maybe just stupid hope, but he’d swear it on his mother’s grave: Simon glances at his lips as he says it.

    “Did you know,” (Baz can’t say he’s been this close to anyone except Penny or Wellbelove, and it was very different then. His heart didn’t beat this fast and his breath didn’t come this short and he most certainly wasn’t fighting the urge to kiss either of them.) “That I’m the gayest man this side of California?”

    He can hear the hitch in Simon’s voice, and then a wide grin replaces the anxiety on the boy’s face. “Shit, really? Which side? That’s like, directly across or something.”

    -------

    After drunk texting the Crown Prince, Simon gets caught up in a fake relationship with Baz. While dodging the paparazzi, their friendship develops, and Simon struggles to keep his secrets.

    Summary

    This story picks up just after "Wayward Son." Simon, Baz, Penelope, Agatha, and Shepard head to the airport and plan to face the danger back home. This work started as a way to finish Baz and Simon's conversation on the beach and ended up developing into what I would envision and hope for in the final book of this trilogy.

    The group takes on the threat against Watford, discovers the truth about what happened to Lucy and Natasha, unlocks the secrets of Simon's magic, and finally learns once and for all the meaning of the Chosen One prophecy. It's full of humor, tragedy, revelations, and most of all- love.

    Summary

    Adulthood is supposed to be Simon Snow’s happily ever after. Instead, he’s adjusting to mundanity as well as a former Chosen One could - awfully. (Honestly what the fuck is he doing with his life?) At twenty-three he thinks he’s done with the adventures. The problem is that trouble tends to look for Simon.

    This time he’s taken back to Watford School of Magicks. To open the Third Gate, slay the Sixth White Hare, and maybe find the fairies in the process. Meanwhile, the NowNext are setting up shop in London, his ex-girlfriend is unofficially a vampire slayer, his best friend’s in love with a Normal, said Normal is still cursed and running out of time, the dead spots are closing (maybe Simon isn’t as Normal as he thought), and on top of all of it - Baz is back in the country after being abroad for several years, looking good enough to eat.

    And Simon is still hopelessly in love with him.

    Summary

    [Implied Sexual Content] 18+ Simon and Baz.



    It’s been a year and a half since the day we came back from America and I broke up with Baz.

    It was the right thing to do. He was better off without me. I was a broken Normal, and Baz... Baz was everything. Everything I wasn’t and could never be.

    I encouraged him to go back to America to Lamb because I knew he would be happy there.
