when our stars collide by tattooedsiren [52k, complete]
Summary: Mike has lived in New York all his life, so he’s not unaccustomed to seeing famous people in real life. He once stood in line at a coffee shop behind Hugh Jackman. He saw Matt Damon at a restaurant once. One time he got into a cab that Anne Hathaway was exiting. He doesn’t really get star struck. Except now apparently. Harvey Specter just walked into his shop and Mike’s body is reacting, heart beating hard in his chest, breathing becoming more difficult. Thankfully Mike is distracted from his minor freak out by someone attempting to rob him. [or: Harvey is a famous actor who walks into the bookshop that Mike owns, and yes, this is exactly what you think it is.]
Shackled and Drawn by Lupismaris [65k, complete]
Summary: Mike had never been to a boxing match before. A few of Grammie’s friends at the home watched them, and he’d settle down with them so they’d have company. But he’d never stopped to watch it closely. He’d never bothered to dish out the extra money for a ticket to a live fight. That had always been Trevor’s thing, the violence, the blood stains on the fabric, the thud of gloves hitting muscle and bone. He’d always thought it too much, not something to glorify, just people brutally beating the shit out of each other. But when he first laid eyes on Harvey Specter, towering in the ring, he realized that he’d been wrong.
5U175 by Closer [26k, complete]
Summary: Harvey sometimes moonlights as a Star Trek BNF. Mike might have an attitude problem on the internet. TiberiusGhost is strangely compelling, for a recluse who never goes to meetups, and Harvey’s finding this kid Photohead vaguely familiar…
From the Heart by laughter_now [76k, incomplete]
Summary: Christmas is approaching, and with it one of Harvey’s biggest problems. For all his talents and abilities, he absolutely sucks at finding the right gifts for his family. There have been some near-catastrophes in the past that Harvey’s family has made perfectly clear better not happen again. Usually, this is where Donna comes in and saves the day, only this year she goes on strike and insists that Harvey should buy his own presents. Harvey however wouldn’t be Harvey if he didn’t have a different plan to get himself out of the disaster that is shopping for presents one week before Christmas Eve. He asks Mike to help him out. In hindsight maybe he should have seen that involving his associate was going to have consequences beyond a single day of shopping. Harvey opened a door and things just…happen from there, and definitely not in a way Harvey imagined his Christmas holiday to go.
Grande Soy Triple Dirty Chai by friskaz [38k, complete]
Summary: Harvey is (still) a lawyer. Mike is the only barista that gets his coffee order right, and isn’t afraid of a bit of intelligent and snarky banter.
