    Summary

    In his mind, Victor had pictured Yuuri in a bespoke suit, cigar in one hand, martini in the other, made with the finest gin and vermouth, a squeeze of lemon and the tears of his readers.

    --

    Famed author Yuuri Katsuki’s bestselling Ice Prince trilogy took the world by storm. But that was over five years ago. He hasn’t written a word since.

    Victor Nikiforov might have had something to do with that. Katsuki’s biggest fan, he was unsatisfied with the way the series ended. Under a pseudonym, he published a fic with an alternate ending that spread like wildfire, with many fans saying it was better than the original. But Victor never expected Yuuri to actually respond online, sparking a war that ripped the fandom apart.

    Now working as a temp in NYC five years later, Victor is sent to the residence of a reclusive author with a bad case of writer's block…

    Summary

    It should've been simple: Severus falls for Lily, Lily falls for Severus, and the pair live happily ever after.

    Instead, Voldemort is rising, and the Ministry is corrupt. With her options in the wizarding world curtailed, Lily quickly aligns herself with the Order of the Phoenix, whilst boyfriend Severus remains deliberately apolitical.

    After all, as a full citizen, he's got rather more to lose. With Lily forbidden from earning, he's keeping them both, with all of his spare time eaten up by his apprenticeship and his casual hours behind the bar at the Three Broomsticks.

    Not to mention his little side-hobby. Avoiding Azkaban. Touting illegal potions carries a rather harsh sentence, you see...

    Summary

    Love is everywhere. Often it's not particularly dignified or newsworthy but it's always there. An office romance. An old married couple. A connection between strangers that transcends all barriers.
    Nine lives. Nine stories. Nine loves.

    Summary

    They’re allowed to do this, Yuuri tells himself. They will do this whether they mean to or not, whether they know better or not, stumble over each other and disagree and say things they don’t mean.

    Yuuri worries that Viktor is doing too much. Viktor worries about more important things.
