Current Projects - WIPs for you!

If you don't subscribe to us on AO3 (and seriously, why don't you? you should do that!) you might not know about our two current regularly-updating WIPs.

Broken Pieces: (Finn/Puck, Finn/Puck/Kurt) After Blaine's death, Kurt completely loses his ability to cope and function. Finn and Puck—together for 15 years—travel to New York at Carole's urging to provide comfort and support for Kurt when it becomes clear that he is on the verge of a total breakdown. The stability they provide turns into a relationships none of them could have anticipated. Updates every Sunday.

Worth Something: (Finn/Puck) Finn and Puck are nearly finished with college, and despite discussing their individual plans, they still haven’t talked about the simple fact that they could be in different cities as early as June of 2016. Updates 2nd & 4th Tuesdays.

Summary: Growing up inside SAMCOH, the Lima, Ohio, charter of the Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club, meant a life of violence, glory, and living by the club’s rules. Finn, his best friend Puck, and his stepbrother Kurt, all second-generation members, never considered any other life outside of the club, however high the cost. When Finn gets out of prison after serving 10 months for taking the fall for another club member’s lies and treachery, he has to decide whether to recommit himself fully to the life he was born to live as the heir-apparent of SAMCOH or if he can finally give himself permission to leave the club and live the life he wanted for himself—and Puck—instead.
