    Summary

    Al Capone fights alien invaders with a ragtag band of mobsters and bootleggers. Nucky learns that loyalty is not edible and money can't buy intergalatic peace. Chalky White becomes king of Atlantic City and doesn't even know it. Arnold Rothstein begins to feel like a father to his men, and a lousy one at that. Eddie Cantor thinks he's Dorothy while playing the Cowardly Lion. Benny Siegel walks a fine line between the worlds, Mickey Doyle is the sanest cockroach under the sun, Gyp Rosetti has the second last laugh and Luciano never grew out of his puppy love. It's all true; God is an astronaut, Oz is over the rainbow and the Boardwalk is where the monsters live.

    Set after BWE Season 2 finale. Lots and lots of characters; main characters in the long run are Lansky, Luciano, Rothstein and Eddie Cantor (however I arrived at that combo). Contains Samuel Crawford/OC later on, which I don't tag because it's background noise and nobody cares about Samuel Crawford anyway. M for booze, language, violence.

    Summary

    From a young age, wizarding children were taught to be wary of no-majs. There was no choice but to live amongst them, despite the dangers. And it was impossible to avoid them, especially in a city such as New York. So they had to blend in. Be polite, but distant. Kind but aloof. To be anything else was dangerous. Be rude and evoke suspicion and hatred. Too friendly and it drew people too close and risked being caught.

    Percival had been taught the law as a child, followed it faithfully as a teen, and enforced it as an adult. But one moment of being a gentleman towards a frazzled no-maj would set on a course that changed his opinion on the law between magic and no-maj worlds.

    Summary

    If you asked most people of Daniel J. Howell’s lot in life, they’d tell you it was pretty good. A small career writing for a fashionable magazine, the heir to one of New York’s most prestigious hotels, the convenience of youth and an ailing millionaire father… what more could an 18-year-old ask for?

    So when a night at the symphony turns into the start of a whole new double life in the city’s queer underworld, the heir to New York’s most fashionable hotel will have to learn what is what when you're dating a cabaret singer, and who is who when that singer becomes a troubled star.

    So it’s nothing but fate to blame when things start to fall apart. The catch? It’s the last half of the 1920s–

    And this romance is illegal.
