    Summary

    "And so we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.”

    1920's Gatsby inspired AU.

    As children, growing up on Long Island in the 1920's young Thor comes to base all his hope for the future on the green light that is Loki. Did he idealize the past?

    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.

    Summary

    'They had a handful of names for these ‘entrepreneurs’ who made a living breaking the law; bootleggers, rum-runners, moonshiners. In some areas of the country these people were revered as heroes, but Mako knew better. They were nothing but smugglers, just regular criminals like those he took into lock-up.' //Makorra: 1920’s AU (set during the Prohibition where Mako is an agent at the Bureau of Prohibition {these people are as original with names as I am} and Korra is our lovely rum-runner in the city)

    Summary

    Cast out by his family for a massacre he didn't commit (his brother did), Thor is on the run from Laufey's wrath. He runs straight into Tony Stark whose father is barely dead and is known for making spur of the moment choices that haunt him for far longer.

    On the other side of the law, Steve Rogers is starting to learn he should never have become a cop while he hopes that the energetic man with the deep eyes he ran into isn't a mobster like his father had been before him.

    (1920s AU, sprawling characters in all walks of life and plenty of mobsters with all sorts of weapons.)

    "Bohemianism is the practice of an unconventional lifestyle, often in the company of like-minded people, with few permanent ties, involving musical, artistic, or literary pursuits. In this context, Bohemians may be wanderers, adventurers, or vagabonds."

    The clones are all living in Greenwich Village during the roaring 20s. Everybody's queer and a criminal (even the cop).
