    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?"

    [When Steve puts up an ad for a model and Bucky walks into his life, things don't exactly turn out the way he was expecting.]

    Summary

    Hanzo didn't know what to expect when he left Japan, but with his brother at this side, he would do anything to keep him safe. Even leave everything he knew, loved, and understood behind. Fleeing to California seemed like an extraordinarily outlandish idea, but his brother assured him that the southwest was a land of mystery, beauty, and romance--at least that's what his novels told him. He doesn't want to look over his shoulder for the rest of his life, so without hesitation, Genji closes his eyes before the train station's map, points, and tells his brother that's their destination. A little town out in the desert, away from the lights and busy streets of Los Angeles, where they'll start anew.

    Summary

    "That certain night, the night we met
    There was magic abroad in the air.
    There were angels dining at the Ritz
    And a nightingale sang in Berkeley Square."

    A dream come true? Possibly not. But dinner at the Ritz, real or no, is not an affair to be missed.

    Summary

    Marco was probably going to blame the alcohol for his behavior when he woke up in the morning and fully questioned his actions. He was probably going to blame the marijuana for the way he laughed at anything Jean said. But right here, right now, he was going to blame the way that Jean’s arm moved around his waist just right or how soft Jean’s hair was between Marco’s fingers or how Jean smelled like the scotch and Marco thought he was getting drunk all over again.

    Right here, right now is where Marco wanted to be.

    Summary

    New York in the 1920’s was definitely a sight to behold. The parties were bigger, the shows were broader, the buildings were higher, the morals were looser, and the liquor was cheaper.

    The city is the first thing anyone sees from an over crowded, shit-smelling boat. Filled with fleas and disease. It’s a wild promise of all the beauty and mystery in the world.

    Especially to a bastard, orphan, son of a whore and a Scotsman.

    Summary

    ★★★★★New title!!!!! ★★★★★
    I guess there were some people even New York couldn't handle.
    Bill Cipher was undoubtedly one of those people.

    It is the year 1922, and Dipper and Mabel Pines are moving to New York to stay with their Great Uncles. Dipper is excited to finally be back to the city - full of mystery and danger. The big Apple is the perfect place to find just the right amount of adventure.

    That is, it would be if it didn't happen to be the domain of a certain mob boss who attracts trouble like a moth to a burning building.

    Bill Cipher. Mass murder, psychopath, and deadliest person in the city.

    And through various circumstances he also happens to be Dipper's employer.

    One wrong move could lead to Dipper, and his family's death. But what happens when, against all odds, Dipper begins to fall for Bill?

    Let's just say, it probably won't be pleasant for either party.
