    Summary

    The streetcars weren’t particularly crowded this time of day. There was even a seat available as Yuri got on and he debated taking it. Most days, he would have been right on it, but sitting down seemed like a losing proposition today.

    Betting against gravity is always bad money. Yuri snorted under his breath as the words he’d heard his grandfather say so many times ran through his head. He used to repeat the phrase through giggles when he was younger like it was the best joke he’d ever heard. The idea seemed so obvious as to be absurd. Of course gravity always won.

    The absurdity of it had worn off some with age, since Yuri had discovered too many ways that gravity could pull at him for it to be quite so funny anymore.

    Summary

    "'Scuse me, miss. Can I just—" He's cut off by some sailor shoving past him like he's not even there and he taps on the woman's shoulder again. "Sweetheart, can I get past you here?"

    "Oh, sorry." She finally hears him and steps to the side, letting him through the crush. Steve glances over his shoulder to thank her and freezes dead in his tracks.

    He painted a swatch of those blue eyes just a week ago.

    "Bucky?"

    Summary

    parties, booze, and freedom. the time they lived in gave them everything. but for two men with a penchant for trouble and adrenaline, it wasn’t enough. instead, they chose the road less travelled. the road that separated them from the others. the faster road to freedom…to fortune…to fame. it was also the road to a faster death. and maybe, perhaps, that’s what they what they were chasing before they met one another. maybe it’s what they’re still chasing. but since their first heist together, they chased the high of one another’s smile instead of the next heist. and eventually the only thing they chased wass one another. the only thing they wanted to steal was another kiss from the other. the only person they cared about was one another. so they decide to get out. one last heist. and as luck would have it, all this time they weren’t chasing death at all. no. it was death that was chasing them.

    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

    In the 1920's era of prohibition, there lies a life of glitz and glamour that everyone seeks. Fresh off another world tour, and retired from the famous Ballet Russes, Viktor searches for something to spark his passions once more, and it could be that he has found just that. Former dancer Katsuki Yuuri catches the eye of renowned ballet dancer Viktor Nikiforov as he must fill in one night at one of the up and coming speakeasies on the late night Chicago strip.

    -*-*-*-

    There was a drop in the beat, and the dancer threw a hand to his lips, feigning a wide-eyed gasp, as his leg kicked up beside his head. On two feet once more, he turned over his shoulder and blew a kiss, complete with a knowing wink, towards the audience.

    Viktor was enthralled.

    Summary

    “When I lay these questions before God I get no answer…” – C. S. Lewis

     

    In a world of half drank liquor bottles and the stories that say they didn’t have a drop, answers are few and far between. And the moment you realize that choices made are based off of assumption and motive, the easier life in this city gets. The city that God can’t see, and the devil won’t bother; but, I won’t bother you with unimportant details. No one knows the name of this city…not any more.
    No, this begins with a girl caught in a windstorm called lust, staring up at a blue eyed girl who headlined “The Silver Smoke”, a lesser bar with lesser morals. Then again, lesser morals are a custom here.
