    Summary

    It’s ridiculous how surprised Alex is when Forrest asks him out. His heart is broken and he’s surprised that people don’t steer clear of him and his aura of sadness and self-pity.

    But Forrest decides they’re going to be friends and it seems Alex has no choice in the matter. But maybe a new friend would be nice. A new friend could be exactly what he needs. A new friend who’s not afraid to demand he talk about his secrets, desires and loves. Maybe talking about this love will finally help him understand it.

    This is an Alex Manes & Forrest Long friendship fic. No sex but conversations about sex and relationships abound.

    Summary

    'He knew how it worked. That when your soulmate laughed, you would hear it that night in your dreams. His father, Ibrahim, had spoken of the joy he had, growing up and hearing his mother’s light laugh every night. How happy he’d been, knowing his future partner was so carefree and easy to laugh. How he’d felt his heart would explode when he’d heard that laugh, outloud, that fateful day in the market. How it had speared him through his heart. And Yusuf had sighed at the romanticism of it.'

    (Soulmate AU where you hear your soulmate's laugh in your dreams)

    Summary

    At times, it seemed like all they did was no more than a single raindrop of hope in an ocean of despair and chaos, but together all those raindrops had evidently helped.  Copley had captured it all, the last one hundred and fifty years of their lives condensed down into a few dozen photos and newspaper clippings.  It seemed so small, and yet, all encompassing at the same time.  

    Kind of like how a declaration of love in a van during an abduction had condensed down all nine hundred and twenty years of an epic romance into a few hundred words.  It seemed an impossible feat, but then, his Yusuf was just the kind of guy to pull it off.

    Or, the stories behind the speech in the van.
