    Summary

    In which Yusuf is a witch, striking out on his own and looking to make his way in the world -- what he finds instead is a very peculiar rabbit, desperately in need of his help. Destiny might have brought them together, for reasons not entirely clear, but Yusuf isn't going to abandon a soul in distress -- especially if he has the ability to do something about it. (And if he happens to fall in love along the way, well... who is he to deny his own heart?)

    Summary

    Nicky feels like he’s the only true human being in the room; he’s the only one shifting with discomfort and wrinkling his nose and feeling so sick at watching what’s going on. “Hey,” he says to the scientists, “Can’t you knock him out while you do that?”

    “Why should we? We don’t have the budget for sedatives or pain killers.” One of the scientists says blandly, and that makes Nicky feel like he’s been shoved over an abyss. There should be empathy, or professional courtesy, or common decency, but there’s just a blank look of slight annoyance.

    Instead of killing the doctor like he really wants to, Nicky pulls his silenced handgun from a pocket and shoots the victim in the head. “They’re immortal and I don’t get off on watching people writhe in pain. Even if drugs aren’t in the budget you can bet bullets are."

    Summary

    A half hour later, Grantaire had scrolled through what felt like half of twitter before he stumbled upon a random tweet that linked to an ‘Am I the Asshole?’ post on the subreddit of the same name, and he glanced at the clock before deciding he had enough time to waste a couple of hours on a whole new level of misery.

    He might’ve kept scrolling for hours, when he stumbled upon an AITA post that was surprisingly familiar.

    Suspiciously familiar.

    Like he had lived it.

    He hesitated for only a moment before clicking on the post.

    cavity-sweet, but also feelings.

    AITA should be a fanfic genre. Is it a genre yet?

    Summary

    “I always thought this would be the opposite way around,” Nile blurted out. “Nicky cooking Italian food, and you ogling him.

    “Nile, this may come as a surprise, but our Nicky here can’t cook Italian food,” Joe whispered conspiratorially, eyes gleaming. “He thinks pesto genovese is modern hippie nonsense.”

    “What? I thought you’d be, like, an Italian food snob.”

    “I refuse to recognize the unification of Italy,” Nicky deadpanned.

    How Yusuf introduced pasta to Italy. Maybe.

    Summary

    Joe needs to finish this portfolio if he wants something to propose to the showcase. And he does. He really does. But someone just sat at his table because the coffee shop is so busy, and their profile is gorgeous, and yep, he’s definitely trashed the outline again because this man is definitely going to be a part of it.

    “Is there something on my face?” he hears, and Joe pauses.

    Shit.

    Joe breathes out so heavily that his glasses fog up, and he looks up to find the man giving him a hint of a smile, tilting his head slightly to the side.

    “You’re staring,” the man states and honestly, yeah, Joe is.

    “I’m not.” Idiot.

    ---

    or joe is an artist, and he falls in love. and nicky is along for the ride.

    There's something special about coffee shop artists.
