    Summary

    The photos don’t do a great job of capturing it, but Adora knows that she saw the she-ra at the edge of the forest that night. Yes, it was twilight and long shadows can play tricks on the eyes, but the meadow was still illuminated by the last rays of the setting sun and the giant mass of blonde fur streaking towards the woods was unmistakable. No other animal on the Etherian Peninsula is that large, and it was clearly running on two legs, not four.

    News of the she-ra sighting goes national when the reporter from the Seattle Tribune picks up the story. It quickly spreads from the Tribune to the tabloids and eventually the story ends up in the opening monologue of the Tonight Show. By then, half of America has heard of Adora Gray, the park ranger and wildlife ecologist who claims to have seen the legendary she-ra.

    On the other side of the country, a reporter pulls an assignment to spend a month on the Etherian Peninsula investigating Adora Gray and her supposed she-ra sighting. What her editor doesn't know is that she and Adora have a history with the she-ra that stretches back long before news of Adora's photos broke.

    Summary

    “I don’t think you’re ready for how sexy he is,” Puffy teased, to which George scoffed.

    “Just show me,” George said. And oh, did Puffy show him.

    Her finger slipped off the person’s face, revealing one of the most handsome boys George had ever seen in his life. It was like time had stopped, George’s eyes entranced by the image of Dream. His slightly creased eyes from his bright, cheeky grin. His freckles dotted across his cheeks and the bridge of his nose. His perfectly styled mullet, fluffy and wavy. His golden eyes that sparkled charmingly, defined brows, perfect lips that George would bet anything were addicting to kiss—

    —Not a thought a man should be having about another man.

    George’s experience in America, so far, could have been worse. Besides the teasing, occasional shoves, and desperate girls, he’d say that he was just getting by thanks to his three new best friends. But when he meets an exceedingly cocky jock who goes by the name Dream, George starts to question a few things.

    Summary

    “Jungkook... look at me.”

    Jungkook fiddled with his thumbs and peered through his lashes as his boss, Cho Yangeun, craned over the mahogany desk. Yangeun's hair shone grey in the fluorescent light, but the muscles straining under the skin of his forearms was a stark reminder that he was still as powerful – and dangerous – as ever.

    “You need to go to Busan,” he said, “find me this mole, and kill them.”

     

    OR; Jungkook, one of the top members of the Yangeuni Family gang, must go back to his hometown of Busan to find a mole leaking information to the police. There he meets Jimin, the boy from his childhood, falls in love, and finds much more than he bargained for. But can gang life and love go together? Or will he always be at war with love? When his whole view of life is challenged, what will Jungkook choose?

    Summary

    He was so occupied, in fact, that he did not notice the 2359th person in the museum approach him.
    “How did you do that?” demanded the voice. If Merlin thought about it, he would realise that the tone was more curious than accusatory, but he will be forgiven if his mind was at the moment more concerned with how the man was unaffected by his magic.
    Before he even finished turning around, he felt a slight intrusion through his mind that made him sway a little on his feet. He clutched his head with a gasp and blocked whatever it was. “What – did you just get inside my – stop that,” Merlin hissed.

     

    Merlin finds himself in New York, following a personal cause that is, in his opinion, nobody else's business. An intrigued Charles begs to differ.

    Summary

    Spring of 1988. Seniors are preparing for adulthood, although they really don’t act like adults. They still live their youth, messing around after school, slacking off, you know, normal teenage things. Everyone had their hobbies, and yours was photography.

    This particular Salon has always been a comfort place for you. Petra was always there. It may have been your eye for scenery but you really did love the comforting and safe people who worked there. You always offer to take pictures of hair models for their posters. You found yourself visiting more than you intend to. You always notice a black haired man peacefully working, never paying mind to you. There’s something special about him that you couldn’t really see though.

    Summary

    "I didn't write this to forget who I am as a person nor did I write it for money out of desperation. I wrote this because I know, one day, someone will find this story in the corner of a library, squeezed between forgotten stories with a dusty appearance. Maybe they'll pick up this book, look at the hardcover of the scripted title and give it a read, and maybe they could relate to our lives; to our struggles, and maybe, they won't feel as alone.

    Despite the demons that never cease to exist as they will never go away, we will always remain together as 𝒆𝒊𝒈𝒉𝒕 boys with our 𝒆𝒊𝒈𝒉𝒕 different lives telling our 𝒆𝒊𝒈𝒉𝒕 different stories tied into one in the year of 𝟏𝟗𝟖𝟎."

    Summary

    Brian May led a simple but somewhat lonely life. He thought it was enough to own a record store and to dabble in his side interests. His success in the dating world had hit an all time low and he had thrown in the towel. Little did he know his life was about to get turned upside down. When a famous music group is in town for some shows he has an unlikely encounter that not only shifts his future but literally and figuratively rocks his world.

    Roger Taylor is a bored and burned out rock star looking for something more meaningful in his life than one night stands both on the stage and in his bed. He meets someone who makes him question his future and his true desires. Will Roger risk everything to have something deeper than a top 40 single? Will Roger find what has truly evaded him for ages? Happiness....

    This takes place in an alternate universe away from Queen. I have borrowed some things from their real lives to enhance the story and give it some familiarity. The story takes places in the 1980's. MTV exists in the way that it did then. Each chapter title will be a song and I will reference the name of the artist. Go to YouTube to listen before reading the chapter.
