    Summary

    The girls are exceptional, swirling and stepping in perfect time. Large smiles grace their faces, occasional giggles bubbling forth as the music jumps and dips. Only a single flapper holds an air of regal dissatisfaction, her expression one of effortless seduction rather than jubilation; she catches Jesse’s eye instantly, and he suddenly isn’t just acting intrigued.

    Summary

    It's a brave new world; top dollar scientists are working on space travel, aliens and humans together on the same streets, and suddenly all those cartoons in the funny papers seem like a real possibility.
    But humanity hasn't quite touched the stars yet, and though aliens may be on planet Earth, they don't intend on helping with that. A brave new world it may be, but bad people, human or otherwise, will always rise up and try to control things, whether by manipulation or brutal violence.
    Lieutenant Shepard, of the 104th precinct, is going to stop them.

    Summary

    A bartender has a confusing job description: part-time performing waiter, part-time mediator, and a full-time nanny in a room full of inebriated people with impatient feds right outside the door. It doesn't help that Prohibition is starting to pick up with the swing of each jazz tune.

    Namjoon owns Bulletproof Bar, an underground speakeasy in the heart of the city, under the guise of a coffeehouse owned by Seokjin. When things start going to hell, the close-knit jazz band and wait staff pray for their hopes—and their lives.

    Summary

    Spring. Taisho Era Japan, 1920. There is a small percentage of the population that is born with mysterious, magical tattoos. When these people find each other, an inexplicable feeling runs down their spine and they somehow know the other person is just like them—especially if the tattoos have a pre-determined affinity to each other.

    Summary

    In this 1920s Modern AU, John Thorington (modern AU Thorin Oakenshield) and his wife (Wren, my original character, initially written for proper Middle Earth fanfiction) come together one cold night in a hunting cottage, where they have to share a bed for warmth purposes, according to all cliches. And despite their proper upbringing and uptight morals, they are faced with the questions of conjugal duties and inappropriate sexual gratification. Nothing but humour, smut, and plenty of sarcasm.

    Summary

    “Viktor, please. Yuuri- may I call you Yuuri?”

    The man was so charming that I could not find it in myself to resist leaning forward. It was the kind of voice that the ear follows up and down – each speech an arrangement of notes in improviso. On reflection over the years I would think back and hear again the singing compulsion of his voice; a promise of a gay sweet song just a while since, and that there were gay, exciting things hovering in the next hour.

    Summary

    Jungkook's a snitch. He's not proud of it, but he's not ashamed of it either. It was convenient and easy to get information for coppers Taehyung and Seokjin. Easy money.

    At least, that's what he thought until he gets pulled into the seedy underworld of vaudeville speakeasies by the one and only man-eater with the angelic voice, Park Jimin.
