    Summary

    1920s AU where Clarice Ferguson and Lucas Bishop are detectives on a murder case, Roberto and James are dancers in a cabaret show, and they all end up living together in a sort of patchwork family of sorts.

    Ororo Munroe owns a cabaret place called the Murlock Tunnels and Jean Grey and Scott Summers are reporters investigating the Hellfire Club's criminal activity, and it seems as if everything's about to explode before the next 8pm show.

    In other words, there's puttin on a show for getting a case done, and maybe a kiss or two smuggled in there as the old trolleys slowly rattle on by and the summer rolls on by lazily.

    Non-Powered AU.

    Summary

    Sam and Dean have moved to New Orleans, Louisiana after travelling around the country in search of any effective treatment for Dean's poison-gas-damaged eyes and lungs. Bobby, a family friend, rents out a home for them and sets Sam up with a job working as a piano player in a speakeasy called "the Roadhouse".
    Sam gets a recommendation to see a Vodou bokor by the name of Lucifer to help treat Dean's eyes, and, while things all appear to be going well for a while, there are a few more powerful forces at play than anyone could ever have anticipated.

    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.
