    Summary

    Neil Josten hides from his father’s wrath under the guise of a friendly, non-confrontational library assistant working for the summer. It is foolish and dangerous and has every survival instinct in his body telling him to run, but he has nowhere else to heal from his latest run-in with Nathan Wesninski.

    He does not anticipate finding anything worth staying for past his recovery until a blonde boy with a scowl and a split lip begins occupying his favorite corner of the library.

    (alternatively; Neil didn’t think Andrew Minyard was a problem until he found himself sitting beside Andrew's hospital bed with a visitor's badge pinned to his shirt.)

    Summary

    It's been years since he saw the boy at the park. One day he was there and the next he was gone. But Andrew recognizes him nevertheless. Bright auburn hair and chilling blue eyes, fire and ice. Only now he's wearing a black jersey and he's glued to Riko's side.

    or

    Andrew and Neil meet as kids, but before the foxes find Neil Josten, the Ravens do.

    Summary

    “He’s joining us earlier than we anticipated.”

    “He’s a flight risk. This way there should be no more risk of him getting away from you. I’ve killed his mother. He belongs to you.”

    “Six years old and already training in the Raven’s nest. He will be a player that won’t be rivaled.”

    Nathaniel lives a hard life in the ravens nest, choosing Jean and Kevin's safety and happiness over his own constantly. Like the martyr he is. Then one day he is given a chance. It's a fools bet, and Nathaniel is unlikely to win it.

    But he has one season to take the Foxes to championships and win.

    If he doesn't, well.. he doesn't like the other options.

    So he makes his own. Win or die.

    Summary

    This is literally just a Kevin/Seth Cinder au, which in itself is a sci-fi Cinderella retelling. If you haven’t read the lunar chronicles, I would recommend it. Either go read them and come back and read this, or read this and then read them. Or don’t. It’s up to you. I will eventually get to the other books in the series but not for a while. It’s going to be Dan/Matt as Scarlett and Wolf, Allison/Renee as cress and Thorne, and Andrew/Neil as jacin and winter. There will also eventually be some minor Nicky/Erik as Iko and Kinney so stay tuned.

    Summary

    From the first moment he had laid eyes on him, a shadow behind Riko, arrogant and silent and with the kind of blankness born of fear in his eyes, something had stirred in Andrew’s chest.
    It might have just been recognition of another soul trapped under people too big for him to fight, but then he turned up on the bus, and in Palmetto, in Andrew’s space and in his life, breathing his air, believing in him -like the stubborn fool that he was- pushing him forward, demanding effort, and Andrew couldn’t look away.
    And for the life of him he was yet to learn how to take his eyes off of Kevin day.
    But for the first time in years Kevin’s eyes didn’t flick to him first.
    They didn’t look at him at all, and the blame was on his own head-

    The fic where the boys all discover that they’re better as three than a pair, but they have issues they need to confront before they have a single hope of coming together.

    Summary

    Based off of my tumblr au, "the one where someone doesn't know who kevin day is"

    Kevin's life is in shambles. He's almost failing math three weeks into the semester, the freshmen won't listen to him or Neil yet, Andrew keeps locking him out of the suite, and he doesn't even know where to start with the attractive guy he met on campus. For so long it's been Exy and school, even after coming to Palmetto. Adding boys to the plate isn't what he expected to worry about- especially ones with muddy brown eyes and winsome smiles.

    Summary

    Neil Josten doesn't believe in Gods, ghosts, nor destiny. If there is anything he has come to believe from years of out running certain death is that, firstly, not even a perfect utopia can protect everyone and second that everyone dies alone. A born wizard with a need for adrenaline, Neil knows he can only protect himself by learning combat, languages, and magic by participating in academic tournaments that are intense physical, magical, and psychological tests that honor their lineages of magic and otherworldly-given powers.

    A lapse in Neil's plans securing his passage to his next hideaway has him dumped onto the world-stage of collegiate magic tournaments after being contracted to a high-profile A1 tournament court shadowed by recent suspicious deaths and a secretive court. Neil runs the risk of his secrets finding him before he can even begin to make sense of his invisible ties to his new teammates' own pasts and deciphering strange dreams that haunt him of mother's last moments.

    Summary

    Wanting, wanting, wanting.

    Andrew had let go of the longing to want years and years ago. He had died to start over without the need to want. He was living two lives only to protect what was his, but he was ready to let go and spend the rest of his days on the shore of Burlesca, drowning his memories in the waves crashing against the cliffs.

    Wanting. Wanting. Wanting.

    Strands of dark hair peeking out from a couch swept the ground underneath him. Clear blue eyes sparkling with the joy of having healthy legs pierced him. He wasn’t allowed to want. Not even an illusion. The coniglio would disappear as fast as he crashed into his world, and Andrew didn’t have any reason to learn to live without him if he hadn’t even learned to live with him.

    Wanting. Wanting. Wanting.

    Wanting was more dangerous than any other thing that Andrew had known.

    Summary

    German Translation for The Foxhole Court by Nora Sakavic / Deutsche Übersetzung von The Foxhole Court von Nora Sakavic

     

    Neil Josten ist die neuste Ergänzung des Palmetto State University Exy Teams. Er ist klein, er ist schnell und er hat eine ganze Menge Potenzial - und er ist der Ausreißer-Sohn des mörderischen Bandenbosses, der sich „Der Schlächter“ nennt.

    Einen Vertrag mit den PSU Foxes zu unterschreiben, ist so ziemlich das Letzte, was ein Typ wie Neil tun sollte. Das Team steht im Fokus der Öffentlichkeit und eine Sport Crew, die Bilder seines Gesichts an die ganze Nation ausstrahlt, kann er gar nicht gebrauchen. Seine Lügen werden nicht ewig unter derart prüfender Blicke standhalten, und die Wahrheit wird ihm das Leben kosten.

    Aber Neil ist nicht der Einzige im Team mit Geheimnissen. Einer von Neils neuen Teammitgliedern ist ein Freund aus seinem alten Leben und Neil kann ihm nicht ein zweites Mal den Rücken zukehren. Neil hat die letzten acht Jahre überlebt, weil er rannte. Vielleicht hat er endlich jemanden oder etwas gefunden, für das es sich lohnt, zu kämpfen.

     
    All rights to this book go to Nora Sakavic, I'm only translating it to make it accessible to more people.

    Summary

    If there was one thing that haunted Chris’s dreams more than his father, it was figments. They were everywhere on the streets, trailing faithfully after their creators. Even if there were no physical figments around to remind him, the news would announce a change in the Figment Laws, a segment on proper care, people discussing charities, donations, foster and halfway homes.
    Chris couldn't escape.
    ~
    Or the universe in which Imaginary Friends (Figments) actually exist and Wymack ends up running a halfway home for everything deadly and dangerous that needs a second chance.
