LGBT+ "After Breaking Up with Ex" Writing Contest For eighteen years, Ren Ashford believed that he was "just" a beta—a run-of-the-mill, ordinary, everyday human guy who had nothing truly remarkable about him. That was, until his fateful encounter with Rhys Holcroft—his long-time alpha crush—just before their high school graduation. In much the same way that their souls had been secretly doing for so long, just under the surface of their consciousness, it was as if their bodies had called to each other. And during this short period of mindless passion, Ren discovered what he truly was... And then his world came crashing down. Left with nothing but pain, he ran away and never looked back, and for a time at least, he thought Rhys had chosen to forget what had happened as well. But... when two people have a fated bond so strong that it could change the very core of who they thought they were, can they really forget just because they wanted to? And what if Destiny has other ideas?
Xian Moon finds himself the center of everyone's attention after the discovery that he looks very pretty in a wig. This leads to him being hounded to play the lead role in the film club's latest project, a gay romance that is sure to raise some eyebrows in their still-conservative country. At the same time, he quite literally stumbles across a beautiful man called Lance Hill, who he later learns is someone that others keep away from out of fear. They quickly form a friendship whose boundaries get more and more blurred as time goes on, and try as he might, Xian can't shake the feeling that Lance is hiding deep secrets... secrets that somehow have a lot to do with Xian himself. NOTE: The story continues in the second book, The Way Back to You.
***This is the sequel of Dyed in Your Color*** Qing Xue opens his eyes and is greeted by his beloved, but not as he had known him. Bai Ruyi is long-dead, and he has been roaming the earth in sorrow and solitude, searching for his love. Now, they have found each other again. Across the gulf of a thousand years, how will the continuation of their story unfold? *** "A man from ancient times awakens in the body of a youth in the modern world." This is one of the subplots of the ambitious film club project that Xian Moon is currently participating in. Drawn uncontrollably to the world of this pair of ancient lovers, Xian has willingly taken on the role of a ghost who loves another man. In the process, he has somehow gotten himself a handsome and notorious boyfriend by the name of Lance Hill. To all appearances, Lance is every bit as obsessed with this story as Xian is. And the closer and more intimate they become, the more Xian develops an ever-growing suspicion as to why. Unfortunately, even though Lance was supposed to play Qing Xue opposite Xian's Bai Ruyi, he got the role of the modern youth instead. This means that someone else would be playing the role of Xian's lover. With this and other obstacles in their way, will they be able to reach the finish line intact? Or will an ancient tragedy repeat itself? ***Please read Dyed in Your Color first to make sense of the story. Thank you!***
