    Summary

    Five years of buried emotion, of sad smiles and wasted chances, of fear and inertia and suppressed desire. Of escape and abandonment and this inexplicable force that keeps pushing Beca right back to the woman she thought she'd left behind.

    Summary

    In 2008, Jane Howard, Kaitlyn Hutchins, Nicole Morgan, and Jessi Reynolds–as well as 40% of the inhabitants of the pre-incident Southern United States–were the only survivors of an event that became known as the Second American Revolution. The destruction and socioeconomic fallout from the event was relatively contained within the borders of the southern region of the United States.

    In the four years since the event, the inhabitants of the region have attempted to do what they can to rebuild their shattered lives. Some have managed. Some have not. Others like Jane and the ones that fought alongside her back then cling to what little remains of their lives pre-incident and have to struggle to deal with what each new day brings them.

    Full summary is in a note at the beginning of the first chapter.

    Summary

    Thea the Queen runs a thriving business of bootleg liquor, sleights of hand, and loaded guns.


    Written for GenFic Minis Round 5: Super Shift (and another doodad applied because I'm having some killer writer's block rn). There were two prompts in my assignment: an Arrow one, in which Thea runs her own lady-ruled speakeasy, and a Flarrowverse/Leverage fusion with as many ladies as I could include.* I combined them both to make whatever exactly this turned out being.

    *Some of the ladies are only mentioned and don't appear, but there's only one male character here, (because I wanted some Thea/Oliver bickering.)
