    Summary

    “You’re good at playing,” Dori said. “You could find another band, somewhere—”

    “Respectable?” Ori asked, finally looking back at Dori, whose mouth was tight and his knuckles were white against the bar top. “I doubt it.”

    Summary

    1920s AU where Clarice Ferguson and Lucas Bishop are detectives on a murder case, Roberto and James are dancers in a cabaret show, and they all end up living together in a sort of patchwork family of sorts.

    Ororo Munroe owns a cabaret place called the Murlock Tunnels and Jean Grey and Scott Summers are reporters investigating the Hellfire Club's criminal activity, and it seems as if everything's about to explode before the next 8pm show.

    In other words, there's puttin on a show for getting a case done, and maybe a kiss or two smuggled in there as the old trolleys slowly rattle on by and the summer rolls on by lazily.

    Non-Powered AU.

    Summary

    While overseas in the Allied effort to defeat Nazi Germany, Sergeant James Buchanan Barnes writes letters back home to his family. His words barely scratch the surface of his experiences.

    A comic/MCU crossover character study for Bucky Barnes, exploring his childhood while his father was stationed in the mid-west, his transplant to Brooklyn and forming of his friendship with Steve Rogers, and finally his experiences as a Howling Commando. Basically, this is all about James' relationships: the relationship with his father, mother and sisters; the evolving relationship with Steve both as a young man during the Depression and then as comrades post-Project Rebirth. Not as much original plot as my other fics, but something I wanted to do because Captain America: The First Avenger was about Steve. So this is a treatment of CA:TFA from James' perspective.

    The first 22 Chapters are a long build with many original characters.

    Chapter 23 introduces Steve Rogers, for those that would like to jump in the middle.

    Summary

    He told his ma that one day he would have a good job, a real job where he could wear a nice suit, and a swell house, and Steve would live there with him, and he’d take care of him always, the way his dad took care of his ma. And his ma got a strange look on her face. She hugged him tightly and told him not to think about things like that, it wasn’t right for a boy his age to think about it.

    Bucky wondered why.

     

    Bucky Barnes has always loved Steve Rogers. This is the story of how that love grew.

    Summary

    Sam and Dean have moved to New Orleans, Louisiana after travelling around the country in search of any effective treatment for Dean's poison-gas-damaged eyes and lungs. Bobby, a family friend, rents out a home for them and sets Sam up with a job working as a piano player in a speakeasy called "the Roadhouse".
    Sam gets a recommendation to see a Vodou bokor by the name of Lucifer to help treat Dean's eyes, and, while things all appear to be going well for a while, there are a few more powerful forces at play than anyone could ever have anticipated.

    Summary

    Alternate Universe, Prohibition era.
    New York City, 1923. After Joffrey Baratheon breaks their engagement, Sansa Stark ends up in Petyr Baelish's brothel, where she works as a dancer. She soon realizes her customers die one after the other...

    "You don't want me to dance, you say you're not here to spy on me, so why did you come?" she asked the Hound again.
    Sansa's high-pitched voice revealed her exasperation; he looked straight in her eyes and, forgetting about the chocolates, he leaned forward so that his head was at arm's length of her knees.
    "I'm your way out, girl."
    He had uttered these words in such a way it sounded like a threat.

    Sara Locke's day job was unshackling herself upside down under water in a glass case.

    Investigating spiritualists preying on the unwary after the War to End all Wars was merely her hobby. A hobby that took a slight turn for the odd.

    Summary

    1920s, New York. Height of fashion, culture, society, and crime. Alexander Pierce is the most infamous mob boss in the state, and all the states surrounding it. Bucky Barnes is his partner, pet, 'lover' (although that's a term best used loosely when describing their relationship). The arrangement works out for them both - Pierce gets a plaything, and Bucky gets money and luxury without having to get his own hands dirty.

    But Bucky's always had ambitions of his own, he's just never had the means to realise them. Cue Steve, an artist whose immigrant parents have recently died and left him with no way to get by on his own. Steve doesn't look like much at first, but then Bucky sees what he can do with a brush and some paints, and the idea for a new criminal empire starts to build that could rival even Pierce's.
