Hic Sunt Draconis
"Andrew is just trying to keep Kevin alive when an elf jumps into the fray, flashing daggers and blue eyes. He hires the Foxes to help him catch a demon from his past, but it starts to feel less like he's the client and more like he's the protection. Andrew hates how entranced he is by the scarred rogue, with magic on his skin and a tongue as silvered as the city's statues. It's a good thing Andrew needs something to hold his interest. Neil is doing his best to meet the expectation, whether anyone asked for it or not." (48,994 words)

The Years of John Doe
"Mary Hatford dies not in California, but along the Canadian border, sending Nathaniel nameless and running scared. Call it luck, call it a twist of fate, call it whatever you want, but Nathaniel tumbles onto the streets of Detroit and right into the hands of one Natalie Shields. Ash covered, burnt and bloody, and completely alone, Nathaniel finds himself becoming someone new with the help of this raven-haired girl he should know not to trust. Going by John Doe, he's mute and ruthless and a member of the Detroit Bloodhounds. Natalie and John fight and they lie and they attempt to face their own demons. They find unexpected allies in each other and John finds that he's breaking the promises he made his mother left and right. The only question is, will it be worth it? John doesn't know, and he isn't even sure if he'll live long enough to find out." (18,780 words)

✢ You Say I'm a Dreamer
"Neil Josten wouldn’t say his life was very magical.
His dreams on the other hand. They always seem too real. And then there's the fact that he finds himself returning to one person's dreams." (58,530 words) I quite enjoyed this one.

It Seems You've Set it Running Free
The sound of an animal breathing, heavy and low, sounded through the dark forest. Neil dared to lift his head. He saw a large, light brown wolf standing in front of him, its hot breath curling up from its nose like smoke. ‘Are you going to eat me?’ Neil asked, his own breath also visible in the air while he slowly pushed himself up. In response, the wolf took a step closer, baring its teeth, a low rumble sounding through its body.(62,393 words)

We're Just Strangers
"AU where Neil is in witness protection but still ends up an Exy junkie, Andrew doesn’t play Exy and needs a fake date to Allison and Renee’s wedding, the Moriyama’s aren’t criminals but Riko is still a dick, and Kevin has been living with his father since age 17 and just wants his friends to stop being dramatic so he can play Exy in PEACE" (83,662 words)

✢ We Might Be Hollow (But We're Brave)
"Andrew is looking to live his life in peaceful nothingness, but his new neighbor's cat won't stop sneaking onto his balcony. As much as he tries to not make it into something, Andrew finds himself drawn to the mysterious and tempting man next door. Neil is just trying to find a reason to not leave Palmetto after everyone else has moved on. But he never thought he would want to run toward something in favor of running away. (In a slightly different world, two people find themselves meeting in a softer setting and in just as much need of each other. A story about dealing with pasts, sharing secrets and a cat who is an asshole yet manages to charm everyone around it.)" (40,681 words) This is quiet and real and lovely.

If You're Wondering
"The Foxhole was a hole in the wall, quite literally. It was painted a muted orange with a series of white paw marks trailing across the wall that glowed under the pale yellow lighting of the café, with a small curled up fox painted right up against the counter. The sign said open, and the lights were on (well some of them were), but there was not a soul else in the café. The chairs were still stacked on the tables, and the register appeared to be turned off. Neil checked his watch, it read 5:26, and he figured he would have to get moving soon to keep to his schedule (even though there was nothing that required him to keep that schedule), coffee cart coffee wasn’t terrible (only it was), and maybe Renee had messed up and meant to tell him a later time (even though he had gotten his hopes up for halfway decent coffee entering his life)."

✢ To Know a Man
"In which the Foxes all work at a coffee shop run by Wymack, Neil is their newest recruit with a dark past, Andrew is obvious, Neil is oblivious, and everyone ships it apart from Aaron, who just wants to study in peace. With guest appearance by a stuffed jellyfish called Josephine." (47,928 words)

Heartlines
"The Fae king and queens have gone away, closing the knowes behind them and abandoning their offspring to the mortal world. As the Fae have spread far and wide, their bloodlines thinning if not vanishing forever as they flee from mortal persecution... two Fae have found a way to reopen the knowes - Kayleigh Day and Tetsuji Moriyama. The Fae regroup once more, the balance of power shifted amongst them, and 'changelings' appear now and then in the mortal population. Andrew Doe is one of those changelings, a young child suffering in the foster system, shunned by his peers for some reason and hearing voices in his head. Alex - the latest name gifted to him by a charm - is on the run along with his mother from his father, using their talents as shadow walkers to slide between worlds and stay one step ahead of the powerful Fae. Except even that is not enough anymore. Except that's not Alex's only talent." (291,539 words)

"Neil follows Kevin's advice and agrees to be part of an ad campaign for Exy shoes. This ends up with Neil's face on an eight-hundred-foot-wide moving billboard, and he's not at all sure what to make of it. Neither is everyone else. Especially when Andrew notices everything." (2936 words)

"Upon Mary Hatford's death, Nathaniel Wesninski makes the call to his uncle Stuart rather than continuing on the run and ending up in Milport, Nevada. Upon graduating university, Andrew Minyard turns down all offers of a professional Exy career and muddles through a 'normal' life, until the boredom and inanity of it all wears him down and he accepts an offer of a break to spend some time with his cousin Nicky in Stuttgart, Germany. There he meets Abram Hatford, a handsome and broken young man who has more in common with Andrew than he suspects, and nothing's normal anymore." (341,918 words)
