    Summary

    Luca couldn't put a fin on it, but something was different about this summer. Maybe it was something in the air, or something in the way the salty breeze came in off the docks. Perhaps it was the look in Alberto's eyes as he and Luca made eye contact - happiness and mirth in his expression, but a hint of something else behind his sea-green eyes.
    Luca returns home for the summer after graduating from college. He hasn't seen Portorosso in years, nor has he stepped in the ocean in ages. He's ecstatic to be home - but he's hiding a huge secret.

    Actually, two secrets.

    For one thing, Luca is gay. And on that note, when did his best friend, Alberto, become so incredibly attractive?

    And the other secret - well, he swore an oath with the Italian government not to tell.

    In short, Luca wrestles with his feelings for his childhood friend, drinks a lot of wine, and balances precariously on the precipice between being true to himself and keeping his secrets safe.

    Summary

    Alberto Scorfano was determined to get rid of every single sea monster that tormented Potorosso. He was sick of being afraid for his family's safety, and he wasn't going to let those vile creatures kidnap and kill the people he loved any longer. He was dead set on finding a sea monster as quickly as possible, and killing it.

    That is... until he met Luca.

    OR

    An au where Alberto is born a human and is Massimo's biological son; where the town's "anti-sea-monster" rhetoric warps his perception of what sea monsters are, until he meets Luca for the first time :)

    Summary

    Victor Nikiforov was on his way to becoming a Living Legend in the sport of figure skating. After hitting his stride and winning back-to-back World Championships, the sport's biggest star was the overwhelming favorite to win gold in his third Olympics on home ice in Sochi, Russia.

    But when Yuri Katsuki pulls off the upset victory in Sochi at the young age of 21 and takes the gold, Victor begins to see his world and the people in it in a very different light -- and it turns out they see him differently as well.

    No longer knowing who he can rely on and finding he didn't know those close to him as well as he thought, when his skating career falters Victor makes a shocking choice that turns his world upside down in ways he did -- and didn't -- expect.

    Summary

    Learning a language for your bro was totally a reasonable thing to do, Reki decided. A best bro. A bro who you wanted to spend the rest of your life with. A bro who you would follow across the universe. A bro who you loved so much, as a friend, that you genuinely couldn’t imagine your life without them at your side.

    -

    It's almost time to graduate, and neither Reki nor Langa have any concrete plans for their first foray into adulthood. But they'll have to decide what to do eventually--whether it's going to university, finding a full-time job, or trying to make skating a lucrative past-time. There is only one sure thing: Reki wants his future to include Langa no matter what, even if that means following him halfway across the world.

    Sure, Reki's aware that learning English won't guarantee that he and Langa spend the rest of their lives together, but he figures it'll at least give him a fighting chance.

    Strangely enough, he's right.
