    Summary

    Legolas is sent to Imladris on a mission for his father. He is going to Rivendell to research all there is to learn about Dol Guldur from Lord Elrond and his large library. Elrond is an imposing and impressive figure, someone Legolas is looking forward to meeting until it all goes wrong. Elrond and Legolas are not impressed with the other when they meet them, something that leads to misunderstanding after misunderstanding until they are both weary of each other.

    Both Elrond and Legolas want to represent their homes well and both feel like they are failing. It feels impossible to leave the cycle of small talk and forced politeness they find themselves in. However, in time, books and nature are two things they realize they can agree upon, and that is where they glimpse that they might be more alike than they previously thought. They start to grow closer until they are on a cusp of something new entirely: something new and thrilling and terrifying. And then Legolas is called back to Mirkwood to complete his mission, leaving them both wondering what had just happened between them. Will these proud elves ever follow their hearts back to each other? Or will they choose to protect themselves-- cutting each other off forever?

    Summary

    Crowley (generally known to the staff as That Demon) was unusual in that he was obviously aware of his library codename, and delighted in returning the favour. Thank goodness, he showed no apparent signs of mental illness, or awkward exhibitionism, or even potential danger.
    What he was was bloody annoying.

    Aziraphale adores his work as a public librarian. He finds fulfillment in answering questions, recommending titles, and planning programs. He likes his co-workers (well, most of them), and loves the small city he serves. The only thing marring his happy life is That Patron.
    Until one spectacularly disastrous Summer Reading Program throws them into a most unusual Arrangement.

    Summary

    Lan Wangji saunters over to the mystery section. He can hear people whispering, but he isn’t close enough to make sense of the conversation. The lilt in the voice makes it sound like one person is asking a question. Hmm. If he can hear whispering, they’re still being far too loud. He shakes his head and continues his browsing. He pulls his phone out to check the time. It’s nearly 6p. He really should get home. He still needs to feed the bunnies and feed himself and look over emails and—

    He stops in his tracks. Stops when he sees the book that he’s been waiting to check out for months now. Every time he’s stopped by, though, it’s been checked out by someone else. And now it’s finally here. Sitting on the shelf in front of him. Once he manages to collect himself, he reaches for it. His fingers don’t touch the spine of the book, though. Instead, he finds his fingers brushing against the fingers of another.

    Summary

Until he fell in love with the charmingly incompetent new hire and, completely unrelatedly, got tangled up in some kind of workplace conspiracy. Is he just being paranoid, or is something sinister really going on beneath the mundanity of life at the Magnus Library?

    Summary

    He set the book aside, and scoffed at the second one in the pile. Coming Up For Air. A bit on the nose, that, presenting him with the story of the man taking himself back to his childhood home, looking to recapture the golden years. You can’t ever go home again. That’s what Orwell was trying to say with that one. Well, Alfred had come home. And he was going to have to make it work.

    Captain Alfred Broadhurst (PhD) has a new life in his old town; new flat, new job with new students, and a new book to write too. And then there is Patrick Butcher, who is possibly the most surprising part of the whole thing.

    Summary

    Work study at the library is a pretty sweet deal. Shouto applied for this job so he could have basically a paid study hour in a quiet place. Hanta loves chatting up patrons about what they're reading. During slow periods at the circulation desk, there's not much to do besides homework or getting to know each other. Friendship is pretty sweet, too.

    That is, until a patron checking out books hits on Shouto and gets an unexpected reaction.
