    Summary

    "'Why don’t we do a crossword?' Alfred said, trying to meet Arthur’s gaze and sitting down on the chair next to the bathtub, drenched in Arthur's blood.
    'It’ll only take five minutes. Or in your case, like ten.' Alfred continued."

    England is bombed, and Alfred stands by King and Country, proudly armed with a tattered copy of 'The Great Gatsby' and crosswords.

    Summary

    Septemer 1939. Australia. Luke Hemmings had just been drafted to go to Poland. No, it wasn't for any kind of school trip. It was a war draft. All boys who were old enough to work were required to put their names in. No exceptions. Luke never in a million years thought that his name would've been drawn out of the thousands that were entered. He didn't plan on having to go to war. Yet, here he was. What was going to become of him? Would he make it out alive? What would happen if he died in battle? Luke pushed these thoughts to the back of his mind as he boarded the plane, looking out the window to say goodbye to his mother and family one last time.

    Summary

    Violence changes a man, but not in the way people expect it to. The war turns everyone into someone else, and what used to be fear is meaningless out there. The definition of fear and being alive are not the only things that change, but also what mercy, remorse, compassion and family mean. When you learn to consider yourself already dead, there's no much that can stop you.

    Summary

    1940's AU OF MY OWN STORY

    “Lark Townsend. I’m glad to finally meet you, Steve.”
    Disarmed by her politeness and the sincerity in pleasantries, Steve allowed himself a smile in return, suddenly not as reluctant for the evening. “It’s good to meet you, too. Hope you don’t believe everything this jerk has to say about me.” Bucky shoved his shoulder playfully.
    Lark just grinned. “I guess we’ll have to see has the night goes on, won’t we?”

    Summary

    Your name is KANAYA MARYAM. You could go into a LENGTHY SPIEL as to everything you’ve ever been INTERESTED IN, but right now a FLIGHT INSTRUCTOR is walking across the airfield towards the AVRO ANSON AIRCRAFT in which you are currently seated, so you think you’d better deal with that instead.

    Your name is ROSE LALONDE. You are an INTERROGATOR for the WAAF, which is an acronym for the WOMEN'S AUXILIARY AIR FORCE. You are AMERICAN, but you happen to possess CERTAIN SKILLS that are more easily taken advantage of by the European front. Many of them enable you to do ETHICALLY AMBIGUOUS things, and you try not to TAKE ADVANTAGE of that power.

    --

    World War II AU unashamedly inspired by the book Code Name Verity (it's different, but much of my interest in this time period and particularly the women of this time period comes from that book).
