    Summary

    (How a boy living in the desert falls in love, and then kidnaps, a teenager with ocean eyes.)

    Lance's strong, he knows this. It's something his Mama told him through daily phone calls, in every unspoken conversation between them after frustrating talks about finances and fake promises that it would be okay.

    But he can only hold out so long when it's just him, Keith, and wilderness of Arizona's deserts around them.

    This is the story of Lance's captivity over twelve months, and how even the strongest of people can break. But don't worry - Keith will be there for him. Whether Lance wants him or not.

    Update: There's now a soundtrack at my tumblr, https://anawriteshorror.tumblr.com/post/186960729489/im-only-doing-this-because-i-love-you-how-a-boy

    Summary

    “You said if you don’t break the curse before you’re twenty then you’ll … you know.” Keith couldn’t even bring himself to say it. “But that means there is a way to break it, right?” He searched Lance’s face desperately, although it was difficult to read his expression in the dimness.

    Lance hesitated, holding Keith’s gaze for a few lingering moments before he looked away again. “I …” He scratched the back of his neck. “I have to kiss my true love.”

     

    Keith is a mage and Lance is a knight, and they've been best friends since childhood. For years, Keith has known that Lance carries a dark secret: that if he doesn't kiss his true love before he turns twenty, he'll die.

    Now only three days remain before Lance's twentieth birthday, and Keith and Lance are sent on a dangerous quest to rescue Romelle––who Lance believes will be the one to break his curse. ... But what he doesn't know is that Keith is already hopelessly in love with him.

    Summary

    Tasked with finding and teaching fifty students with the potential to reach his caliber as a pilot, Shiro instead finds one who has the potential to surpass him. But first, he's got to get the scrawny delinquent to shape up and fly right.

    On impulse Shiro shoved the low table out of the way, and drew his chair closer to Keith. He bent forward, elbows on his knees, and held out his hands, palm-up. Keith was already cornered—literally and figuratively, on so many levels—and Shiro wasn't about to make that sensation worse. But he could show he came unarmed.
