Down to the Bottom of the Sea – ghostofgatsby

Ross splutters as another wave crashes down upon him, soaking him further in icy water. He clings onto a piece of the starboard bow, cutting his palms on the barnacles. The waves crash into him, and he’s slipping no matter how hard he tries to stay afloat.
From the neck down his body is slowly freezing, numbness soaking through him like the cloak of death. His hair is plastered to his head and his clothes are stuck to his back. The water is a terrible, drenching cold, and there’s a feeling of doom within him.
Ross is going down with this ship, and nothing is going to save him from it.

Rating: Mature

Futuristic Dystopian AU

Random headcanons/AUs that won’t get fics anytime soon. If anyone wants to add on/chime in/create something, feel free.

In the far future, society is divided into social classes- the elite, wealthy citizens of the city, and the mongrel, poor citizens of the slums. The Elite Syndicate, the highest members of the wealthy class, control the government, and are forbidden from any interests and social pursuits that would threaten their work- except for hiring lower-class “pets” to entertain them. After Trott, one of the elite, saves Smith from rival gang members, the chance encounter thrusts Smith into the false utopia of the upper class, and the limitations and laws that control their very existence. The developing relationship tests the societal constraints between the two, and for better or worse, others begin to take notice.

except no hair color designation, no forced slavery/kidnapping, no underage, no brainwashing/stockholm syndrome/emotional manipulation by the elite love interest

Footloose, Except BDSM Instead Of Dancing, AU

Random headcanons/AUs that won’t get fics anytime soon. If anyone wants to add on/chime in/create something, feel free.

Smith moves post high school graduation, escaping from the bustle and stress of his life in the city to go to community college in a tiny Midwest town. It’s nice- nobody to tell him what to do, or where to go- and he likes having the independence and security that comes from a tightly knit community. Problem is, no one talks about their status here- no one talks about BDSM. It’s exactly the opposite of his city lifestyle- being loudly out and talkative about the things he does behind closed doors- and the decisions he makes while he’s living there throws the narrow-minded town into turmoil.

cw: xenophobia, discrimination, bullying, beating, fighting. mentions of kink, bruises.

Shower Thoughts – ghostofgatsby

The shower cubicle in Smith’s shared apartment bathroom is about three feet by three feet. Meaning, it’s just big enough for him to bend over and fuck himself on a dildo stuck to the wall.
He swallows back a low moan and flinches when someone pounds on the door.
“Smith, mate, are you done yet?” Ross yells over the rushing water. “C’mon, it’s been, like, a fucking half-hour!
“In a minute!” Smith shouts back.
Fuck.
