    Summary

    If you asked most people of Daniel J. Howell’s lot in life, they’d tell you it was pretty good. A small career writing for a fashionable magazine, the heir to one of New York’s most prestigious hotels, the convenience of youth and an ailing millionaire father… what more could an 18-year-old ask for?

    So when a night at the symphony turns into the start of a whole new double life in the city’s queer underworld, the heir to New York’s most fashionable hotel will have to learn what is what when you're dating a cabaret singer, and who is who when that singer becomes a troubled star.

    So it’s nothing but fate to blame when things start to fall apart. The catch? It’s the last half of the 1920s–

    And this romance is illegal.

    Summary

    After the big attack against Seijoh, almost everyone in the gang was dead, leaving only Oikawa behind.

    Luckily for him, he's offered a place to stay(even if it was out of guilt), but the people who fought in the invasion still had it badly. Nekoma, in particular, lost one of their best members. Their sniper, Kenma, was left horribly crippled.

    At a loss for what to do, Kuroo makes the decision to get help from other gangs so that he could protect his own. But it's when he's given a seemingly broken radio that he learns way more about Karasuno's systems. And it's Tsukishima who shows him that they've got the worst ones possible.

    Summary

    "She's a cancelled stamp, Troy."

    Oh, but she wasn't. Miss Elle Baker is the flapper niece of industrialist Julius Little, and neither of them know the other well, but they're about to face off in the streets of Manhattan. Julius, thinking she's a young lady in need of a chaperone and distraction, provides just that as he tries to find her a suitable husband so she can just go quietly home to New Jersey. He's assigned his right hand man, Troy Bradshaw, to take her sightseeing while she's on holiday in the city. But once Elle arrives it's clear that this isn't quite a holiday and Troy decides right away that he's more taken with the lovely Elle than all the sights of New York.

    A prompt for Elle/Troy -- Holiday. It turned into something that isn't quite a holiday in New York City.

    Summary

    Levi and Erwin have a routine.

    It always starts with the sun. They rise with it and go through the motions, each day, every day, always the same. Except that it’s not. They’re preoccupied. They don’t discuss why or what about, but Levi knows, they both do.

    “Do you ever feel like we’re missing something?” Erwin asks again.

    Levi thinks of bright green eyes.

    “Yes.”

    Summary

    The roaring twenties was certainly something; especially when you were a jazz singer in a bustling saloon. A group of grisly men sat over at the bar, drinking whiskey and chatting after a hard day at the city’s mine. A game of poker at one edge of the saloon, women dancing in seductive and rebellious flapper dresses at the other. Ryan stood at the head of a band on a small stage; a microphone in front of him.

    Summary

    She bounds over to him, brown eyes gleaming.

    "Oh, it's a puzzle box! Give it to me!"

    He hands it over, and she immediately presses all the parts of the box, trying to open it.

    The top face of the box has a scarab beetle decoration, it's plated with some precious metal. She presses it hard enough to make the box click, and it opens, each side flicking out a sharp triangle of metal.

    "It looks like a star. I wonder if you can put it in something, like a key, maybe?" Hange questions. She removes the lid, and sees a folded bit of paper inside.

    "Oh, a love letter!" she teases, grinning up at Erwin. "I'll leave you to open it. Perhaps Marie has finally decided against marrying Nile."

    "Hange... You know very well that I'm not interested in romantic affairs." Erwin says, softly.

    "Yes, dear brother. Just as I am not interested in science and facts."
