    Summary

    Worldwide pandemics are hard enough as it is, but Tang Fan's apartment lease falling through seven months into quarantine feels like the final nail in the coffin of his financial stability. Lucky for him, his ever-dependable long-time friend Sui Zhou swoops in immediately and offers him a place to stay. It's an offer impossible to refuse! So, he doesn't.

    It's a huge change and a big adjustment, co-habitating with someone after living alone for so long. But to Sui Zhou, it's more than worth it to make sure his Fan-di is taken care of. Even when, as time passes and casual intimacy is in abundance, keeping his crush under wraps becomes more and more difficult.

    For Tang Fan, it feels a lot like coming home. It's great, always having his Zhou-ge so close by! They can eat together and play games and cuddle whenever he wants! After all, it's not like Sui Zhou has caught onto his pathetic pining yet... So if they're going to be living in close quarters, he's going to make the most of it!

    Because really, after all these years, how likely is it that their relationship can progress any more than it already has?

    Summary

    Requested by stevetonystuffings
    I really liked your idea so I'm giving this multiple chapters.

    When a secret admirer starts to send gifts containing fattening foods, Robert breaks his diet and begins to gorge. However, he has yet to find that there is something more to these gifts than he realizes. Will there be any hope of stopping it?

    This is for 18 and up audiences because this is a fetish fic. Do not click or read if under and I had put the mature tag for adults.

    Summary

    Clinging to a crumbling marriage, BJ hasn’t written to Hawkeye in five years. A phone call from an old friend after the death of Hawkeye’s father sends him across the country to fix his mistakes.

    Something like dread begins to pool in his stomach, seeping in through the carefully sealed cracks. Margaret wouldn’t call like this without it being an emergency, he reasons. If she wanted to get back in touch with him, she would write. This feels important.

    Margaret seems to steel herself. “Just…have you heard from Hawkeye lately?”

    Ice flows through his veins. His stomach drops. “No.”

    Summary

    Joe’s brow knits together in the middle of his forehead and his dark eyes are so full of concern that it makes Booker’s stomach ache when he whispers, “I know what you’re going through, Book. I know how hard and scary this is. But I want you to remember that, no matter what happens, Nicky and I have got your back. We’re going to see you through this, understand?”

    “Okay, Joe,” he murmurs. “I think I’m ready.”

    Booker, at 42 years old, gathers his friends and family together in one place to finally come clean about a secret that he’s been holding close to his chest for almost two decades. A secret that will finally allow him to truly be himself.

    Summary

    Aizawa Shouta knew, fundamentally, that his quirk could be useful when it came to helping others; however, after his parents died and a few, unsuccessful jaunts around the foster-care system later, he comes to realise that the world of heroes isn’t for him.

    Because heroes only showed up some of the time; then, if you were lucky, they’d rush onto the scene, seek their glory in defeating villains and then vanish behind a screen of adoring-fans, TV cameras and fame… leaving the ordinary people behind to sift through the fragments of their broken lives themselves.

    No one had saved him from the ruthless reality of being an orphan too old and too damaged to be adopted and no one gave a damn about the shady area ensconcing the care-centre he was raised in either, and so, he decides to give a damn.

    What follows are the tales of Café Owner Aizawa who hasn’t adopted several kids, intimidated the local gangs, scared off the pimps and caused multiple villains and heroes to catch feels for him, no sir; he just serves drinks, provides decent food and helps struggling students with their homework.

    It’d be irrational to think otherwise…

    Summary

    Ranboo sighs shakily. “You know that if you - if you want me gone, I wouldn’t… make it difficult, right? Like if you don’t want to talk to me you can just… tell me.”

    Tubbo frowns, wracking his brain for anything he could have done or said in the last day that could’ve made Ranboo think that. He comes up blank. “Of course I don’t want you gone, Ranboo. Why’d you bring it up?”

    Next to Tubbo, Ranboo half-shrugs. When he speaks, his voice is still laced with anxiety. “I don’t know. I just… Tommy doesn’t seem to really like me?”

     

    Or: Tubbo finds out about how Tommy's been treating his husband.

    Summary

    Yes, sometimes you wish he were there with you, not only in parties but in your daily life and share a flat with him. You wish you don’t have to say that he’s living far away from you and that you don’t have to justify that you’re fine with your relationship. Why don’t you date someone else who’ll be there for you when you need it? Why would you date someone who’s far away? Is it worth it?  All these questions, you asked them to yourself years ago, before making the decision to go long-distance.

    Summary

    A modern AU set during the Don't Ask, Don't Tell years of the US military. Geralt is a former soldier, Jaskier owns a gay bar. They meet on the day that Geralt leaves the base for good, with nothing but a dishonorable discharge and his backpack. Features themes of found family, love, and healing from violence.

    A huge thanks to Stressedspidergirl, you are a constant source of inspiration and a wonderful co-creator. It would not be the same fic without you, thank you!! You're amazing!!

    Please note that this story can be pretty intense at times, especially in later chapters. It deals with (internalized) homophobia, depression, trauma, broken families, AIDS, and a whole host of other topics that can be uncomfortable or triggering. There is also, however, fluff, deep family bonds, humor, and smut ahead. Enjoy!

    We are back off hiatus! Chapter 12 is up and 13 is in the works!

    Summary

    Liu Sang had been certain, the moment he ran from his captors there are only two ways this could end. First, is he makes it out the woods and to freedom. Second, he will die trying to get his freedom. He never imagined the possibility of a third outcome, an outcome where a shifter snatches him from the clutches of his captors.
