    Summary

    The “Partners Weekend” at Merrick Industries was a bit of a joke, and in more ways than one. Who actually had time to spend a long couples weekend with people you worked with? But Joe had slaved away too many hours at his desk to blow off his chance at a promotion just like that. Particularly when all he had to actually do for it was spend a weekend in some manor house in the English countryside with his colleagues.

    Which led him to his current predicament: Who of his friends would agree to pose as his spouse for four days – and at one week’s notice?

    Double fake-dating AU: Joe asks Quynh to pretend to be his wife for an important work social at Merrick Industries. Andy brings her good friend Nicky under a similar guise. Only of course none of them is actually straight, and of course none of them is willing to admit that.

    A dumbasses-to-lovers story.

    Summary

    Primo never had anything but the back of his father’s hand and a beat up car that was secondhand even when he got it, and when his uncle said “So what are you going to do, take a girl out in it?” his father snorted and said “He doesn’t have a girl” and that was that, a lost cause and everyone knew it. But he grew up kissing saints, so why not this boy with a face like a Renaissance martyr?

    Summary

    “Today I met a boy who escaped al-Quds,” Yusuf says, and Nicolò stares back at him this time. His clean face is solemn, his pale eyes almost sad, and Yusuf wishes he could see some anger in them. Anything but this. “They killed his whole family.”

    “When you say them,” Nicolò blinks, and there is a twitch in his strong jaw. “You mean me. My people.”

    Yusuf feels he has been running his whole life.

    He ran from his duties as the family’s heir when he refused to marry the woman chosen by his parents. Yusuf eventually made a new home in Jerusalem, and he thought he was done running. Then the Franks laid their siege and Yusuf was killed and brought back to life too many times. Before he realised, he was on the run again. Only this time, he is not alone.

    Or; a road-trip around the Mediterranean in which Yusuf struggles with his new life, searches for the women in his dreams and learns how to open his heart. Also, there is only one bed.

    Summary

    "Yusuf knows when he arrives, can feel it in the shaking breeze that floats through the whispering trees. He grins as he feels it, and the ground beneath him becomes a pathway of marigolds and myrtle bushes as he gets to his feet and sprints.

    He breaks through the forest, the draped leaves of the willow trees brushing over his shoulders in farewell. They barely tug, leaves dropping as he passes the precipice of autumn, blessed by the delightful return of his lover."

    A Hades/Persephone AU; explicit and flowery.
