    Summary

    “This is really, really, really weird,” Thomas tried again, looking down at his changed clothes. He was wearing a lab coat, over a black dress shirt and pants, but there wasn’t even a tie.

    His attention flicked to the giant fan-shaped thing in the corner, conspicuously dustless and surrounded by fallen papers. Thomas ventured toward it, braced for Virgil to shout and make him jump about eight feet in the air, but nothing happened.

    He picked up the papers, finding a manila folder and paper clips next to it, and frowned. It was some kind of file, with an image of the fan thing and a pug-faced white guy with the name Arnim Zola printed under him in letter type. There was an skull-and-octopus insignia in the corner of the page, completely unfamiliar.

    Everything about the situation was completely unfamiliar. It didn’t really feel like a dream.

    *

    Or: Thomas gets brain-swapped with a version of himself who works for an evil organization in a world of superheroes.

    No one is happy about this.

    Summary

    Mr. Remus Princeton, soul of a dark poet and heart shielded with years of sorrow, had lost so much in his common man's life. What little he had, he gave so that his brother could flourish. But for the first time in his life, Remus wanted something that society said he must never have: Deep dark eyes and hair as black as the depths of the sea and uncommonly long, Mr. Logan Blackthorne enthralled him with his mystery and allure the moment he laid eyes upon their host at the party he was not even invited to. How could a man of such standing see him in the crowd and head right for him?

    Mr. Roman Princeton on the other hand, could light up a room just by flouncing into it. He was a delight and all manner of young ladies swooned for him and pined after the artist's affections. But his world was turned asunder when the notable Monsieur Janus D'Ambroise took a shine to his talents. Surely his life and Remus' were about to change drastically and all for the better. They were moving up in the world and right into the mystery and delights of romance and decadence he had long since dreamed of! Why then, was Remus so disinclined to follow?

    Summary

    At the lunch table at the far corner of the cafeteria sits six friends: twin brothers Roman and Remus, their childhood friend Patton and his best friend Virgil, Roman's theater confidante Janus, and, the new addition, Logan.

    Everything is perfect — as long as they believe it to be, as long as their secrets and repressed issues don't ruin the one thing that matters to them the most: their friendship.

    But Virgil is constantly on his toes, convinced that it isn't meant to last. Patton will do everything he can to keep them all together. Remus struggles with the crippling feeling of loneliness while Roman clings desperately onto the attention and validation of Janus who seems to have his life in perfect order (or so he makes them believe). Meanwhile, Logan is burdened with having to keep their secrets, but no one is listening to his advice.

    This is a story of friends who pretend they aren't damaged...until they realize that they all are, and that they can get through the damage together.
