    Summary

    A reader once commented to me that just once, she'd like to see a story address the hurtful consequences that used to come to most people who were honest about their same-sex attraction. That was a long time ago. Ever since then, I've been meaning to write a story that did that, somehow it took me until now.

    This one takes place in the fall of 1980. It takes place in Los Angeles, just before the first cases of HIV/AIDS started to turn up, and makes use of a story I once read about how right after West Hollywood first incorporated as a city in 1984, the first thing the mayor did was to walk into a restaurant there, and rip down the "No Fagots" sign that the owner had put up. ...It sort of makes use of it, references it anyway. ...And by the way, yes, I am aware of the misspelling here. It's how the word was spelled on the sign.

    Summary

    Long before Iron Man or Hulk, Tony and Bruce met as teens one summer and discovered a complicated attraction and a unique bond.

    *Although not part of my “A Marvelish Romance” series, it’s set in the same universe. This Tony is more obnoxious than the adult Tony in my series. Likewise, this Bruce is more vulnerable and awkward than the adult Bruce of my series.

    This is a finished fic and will be updated Mondays and Thursdays.

    Summary

    "The only gay cause I was going to fight was mine, which chiefly involved meeting other guys and getting laid."

    It's September, 1989. Grantaire has just started an Art History degree at the University of Manchester, but one thing he definitely has no time for are the countless political societies which plague the campus. That is until he bumps into a man he can only assume is an angel, and heads to University of Manchester: Gays and Lesbians Society, against his better judgement.

    Summary

    It's the mid 1980s, and aging soap opera, As the Starlight Fades, needs a shot of adrenaline. Perhaps a new Super Couple can bring the show back to life? Set in the era when daytime dramas reigned supreme, the characters wore Armani, everyone over the age of fifty was evil, and the scent of aerosol hairspray hung in the air. And don't forget to turn up the Kenny G.

    Summary

    In which Erik Lehnsherr's the lead singer of The Brotherhood and Charles Xavier's a prep. Somehow they end up having lockers next to each other and Charles thinks that someone out there hates him because Erik Lehnsherr is essentially a shark who hates preps and Charles just wants to survive high school without getting eaten alive.

    (In other words, a 80s high school AU and something else.)
