    Summary

    1935. The Great Depression ravages the world. Fascism threatens Europe. Millions languish in poverty and despair. The nations stand on the brink of ruin or rebirth.

    Aspiring writer Jughead Jones navigates through the perilous economic and political climate of the 1930s. Veronica Lodge's wealthy father battles Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal. Betty Cooper tries to tone down the Riverdale Register's rabid isolationism just a little bit. Cliff Blossom disperses striking laborers with a little help from the Pinkerton Detective Agency. His son Jason is a Communist. Archie Andrews still can't make a decision to save his life.

    And they are all about to find themselves thrust into the shadows of conspiracy, treason, class struggle, and war.

    Or the Great Depression AU no one asked for.

    Summary

    The shots ring closer to me, and the figure above me ducks his head in the crook of my shoulder, using his forearms to cover my head, his body straddling mine tightly. I grit my teeth, squirming under him for leverage. I resist the urge to use my super strength and push the larger man off of me, partly because, if I didn't know better, these assassins were trying to shoot at me.

    The shots are coming out less frequently now, more precise and closer to me and the man in red. He looks down at me, and I'm decidedly shocked. "Deadpool." I say, rather lamely.

    Summary

    There was no way of knowing that deep inside the Interrogation Center in the northern wing, blood-curdling screams were muffled by sound-proof walls. Or that the walls and floors weren’t made of tiles for aesthetic purpose but rather because it was easier to wash off the blood that often stained them. There were no indications that within these walls, people were often dragged back into their cells or sometimes, carried to the freight elevator – an area that typically had one destination: the Incinerator in the basement of the Tower.

    ◉◉◉

    The Inspector reached out to tap her well-cared manicured nails against the glass. Damian didn’t react to the noise. He didn’t react to much at all.

    “Why can’t Grayson or Todd fill in Wayne’s position?” Inspector Drake asked finally.

    General Kent frowned. “Agent Richard, he’s specialized in espionage while Agent Jason is specialized in assassination of precise targets –”

    Once again, he was interrupted mid-speech.

    “Ah, so the Monster is your weapon of mass destruction.”

    There wasn’t a need for a clarification.

    Summary

    He thinks about going to Sherlock, wrapping his arms around his slim body, holding him and comforting him in his terrible sorrow. But the distance between them feels like an ocean, like the expanse of the cold Atlantic between here and London, and he has no idea how to cross that vast chasm, or even if Sherlock wants him to.

    They are here together, the two of them against the world a thousand miles from home--but John suddenly sees that in a profound way, each locked inside their private grief, they’ve never been more alone.

    Summary

    We all thought that when Naraku was defeated, that the adventure was over, that the well would stop working— that Inuyasha and Kagome would finally be able to fall in love and marry. We believed that everyone would finally get an end, a happily ever after, one way or another after so much hardship and loss.

    They were wrong. So blindly, stupidly wrong... for Kagome, it was only the start of much larger journey, and an even higher purpose. The likes of which she would never have believed to be possible.

    Summary

    This is a cooperative story written about the events of a Dungeons and Dragons game. All of the characters are original, as is the world (the setting is an original world created by the DM). We will not be taking note here of the actual dice rolls - this will be written out like a story based on the rolls we make and the actions of our characters. The game itself is a homebrew based on 3.0 and 3.5 rules run from first level with some additions so if you see some deviations from what you expect then they’re likely a result of how we’ve chosen to run the game.

    Summary

    Threat is imminent. Tony Stark and Steve Rogers find themselves caught in a web of lies and betrayals, without allies, without respite. Right is not right anymore when Hydra runs the very government they pledge their allegiance to. Forced to go on the run, they commit to restore honour to the Dream they vow to serve, and to remove the stain that is Hydra from the foundation this country is built on.

    And then, he whom they thought is dead, comes back. They call him the Winter Soldier. Steve calls him his brother. His family. Steve wants to save him, and Tony sympathises. Christ, his heart is not made of stone. And it bleeds anew when he finds out what's hidden in Zola's bunker at Camp Lehigh.

    Sometimes... right is just not right anymore.
