    Summary

    The night that Katsuki found out about his new home, he added a quick message to the end of his stream.

    “Alright, listen up, extras! I won’t be going live for a week. My shitty parents and I are moving to some tiny-ass town in the middle of nowhere, so it’ll take some time to set up over there.”

    Katsuki quickly scanned the chat.

    Rokkuman25: If you hear banjos, paddle faster!

    “Yeah, Yeah! Bye, assholes!”

    MightyIzuku: From one small town boy to another, I hope you find happiness there, Dynamight!!

    Just as quick as the message was sent, it was swept away by the waves of other messages. Dynamight’s stream ended, filling the room with silence. Izuku let out a long sigh, feeling alone in the sea of people.

    He really did hope Dynamight found happiness wherever he went. Maybe he’d have better luck than Izuku at living the small-town life. He bet that Dynamight wouldn’t feel so isolated, bringing along his online army of followers to keep him company. Someone so amazing must have tons of friends.
    ----------------
    Izuku is trapped in a small town, working at a café to support his mother and himself. His idol, Katsuki, a famous Twitch gamer, moves to town.

    Summary

    Obi-Wan's been gone for too long. Anakin, supposedly, hasn't been waiting.

    "Anakin’s name shouldn’t shock him to his core, but it does. Anakin is just a ghost. He’s just someone whose birthday Obi-Wan used to celebrate, whose favorite foods he used to eat, whose old sweatshirts still take up space in his wardrobe. Seeing his face in a picture feels like reading an old diary, like listening to an old favorite song, spinning around the room and letting the words take him away all over again.

    Anakin, in a word used to be—well, everything."

    Or: in which Obi-Wan, a famous actor in a spot of trouble comes back to his hometown and discovers that some people are happier about it than others. But if there's one thing he's determined to do, it's make everything right again.

    Summary

    One cheating ex-boyfriend and impromptu exchange application to the UK later, Louis finds himself in a tiny seaside town in the south of England miles away from the rest of civilisation.

    Well, he did say that he wanted to escape his past life, and this was about as far away as he could get to anything resembling it.

    But when a familiar face from a drunken one night stand makes an unfortunate appearance in Sailor's Point, Louis quickly learns that it's not that easy to live with someone you absolutely, definitely, 100% hate. Especially not when they start getting under your skin a little bit too much and have these piercing green eyes you can't seem to get out of your head...

    ...

    Or, the one where Louis hates Harry because, well, of course he does, and a shared love of Fleetwood Mac and Louis' obsession with figuring out Harry's mysterious backstory leads them down a road neither of them anticipated travelling.

    Summary

    She thinks about calling her mother, but knows she’ll be busy; she’s always busy. And her dad—she can’t even think about calling her dad. Robb’s out, and Arya’s probably wasted and there’s only one person left to call. He answers on the second ring.

    ‘Why didn’t you take your car?’

    Sansa works the grit between her teeth. ‘Harry said he’d get me.’

    ‘Where is he?’

    ‘Obviously not here,’ she snaps. ‘He is obviously not here, and I am obviously freezing my ass off in an empty parking lot. Did I not just explain that?’

    That sound again, the low vibration of a laugh. Despite herself, she can feel the beginnings of a smile threatening her lips.

    ‘You need a ride?’

    She nods at the sound of him, at the shiver of the night. ‘Yeah. Yeah, I do.’

    Summary

    “What’s with you?”

    “Nothing. I’m nervous to meet your friends. Which is not nothing, but it is nothing you should worry about. Just me being me,” he shrugs, then shakes his head vigorously. “I like meeting new people but I also don’t like the pressure I put on myself before that can even happen, and I end up feeling like an idiot because it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. It won’t be bad, right?”

    “Oh Mark, you’re a mess.” Johnny snorts, his shoulders bouncing with the boyish laughter. 

    (Johnny convinces his younger brother to follow him on his summer vacation in a small town to meet his friends, and for a young heart like Mark's, the experience changes his life.)

    Summary

    After a tragedy upended his life four years ago, Sidney Parker fled London for a small town in Vermont, where he’s been hiding from the world ever since. But despite his best efforts, the town hasn’t quite let him be an outlier, especially after his elderly neighbor died and left him with a bookstore to run and Daisy the German shepherd to look after. Still, he couldn’t complain: he loved reading, and it was always nice when Charlotte, the new waitress at the local diner and a Ph.D. candidate in literature came in. Maybe, just maybe, the clouds that have been hanging over him are finally starting to lift.

    Summary

    Obi-Wan knew one day he'd have to return home. As long as his father still lived, a piece of him would always be there. No matter how much he wanted to forget—he was raised there, he learned and grew, and spent his most formative years there. It's also where he first fell in love.

    He couldn't disconnect himself from that world—he would always be inextricably linked.

    He just didn't expect his return to be quite like this.

    Summary

    “They’re pen caps!” Comes another voice, from seemingly nowhere. Shinji yelps in surprise, narrowly avoiding hitting his head on his own window. “Oh, sorry. Didn’t mean to scare you,” a boy sits behind another open window, adjacent to his. “I was trying to get your attention,” he admits, sheepish.

    “Well, it worked,” Shinji says, the confusion giving way to annoyance. “What do you want?”

    Summary

    Ten years. It had been ten years since John Winchester passed away, since Sam moved off to the city to pursue law, and since Dean had fallen into the same daily routine of working on cars and spending his paychecks at the bar. Now their small Kansas town was full of forgotten secrets and hidden scandals...one of them being the epic love story of bad boy Dean Winchester and Pastor Novak’s son, Castiel.
    But now that the holidays have rolled around, that means the lost return home. Dean never thought he’d see Cas again, but there he is with a ring on his finger and a woman glued to his side. Dean didn’t think he’d be heartbroken, but years of passionate feelings come flooding back and he knows he has to fight for what was once so strong and to help Castiel accept his true self, not the version of himself his parents put out to maintain the reputation of the town’s “perfect family”.
    Lies, secrets, and sneaking behind the prying eyes of homophobic town leaders, this Christmas is about to break a few hearts.

    Summary

    "Tell me, do you think dragons are real?"

    "No, Jaem,” he replies with a chuckle. They were, once, but not anymore — and they definitely weren’t what Jaemin thinks they were. “I don’t think so."

    "Well, they could have been, once upon a time," he argues, and before Donghyuck can say anything, Jaemin taps the watercolor on his wall. The vast sea, the vast sky. He realizes then that none of them have ever seen anything like that in real life. "See, the world is so big. Why is it so big for, if not for dragons? It doesn't make sense, to me, that something like this exists if not to be seen, known and, well, conquered."

    He stays silent for a little while, and then adds: "It doesn't have to be dragons, Hyuck. It could be just you and me. That would be enough, don't you think?"

    (Alternatively, Donghyuck has the power to charm anyone and anything into doing things, including liking him. Luckily, Jaemin is willing from the start.)
