Harry still has his PI business, but Murphy is his partner now since the force won't allow her to become an officer. They meet a young man who has been possessed by a light-hating demon, and after going to a speakeasy to try and find some information about who summoned the demon, Harry meets a nice businessman named Milano who offers him some help.

    Summary

    The time was 2:00 am, and the year was 1926. The stars were barely visible against the harsh, artificial glow of the city, but if they had been they would’ve been dim and flickering like lights on a Christmas tree—all but spent up. That’s what the year felt like at least, spent up. That’s how Will Graham felt. Spent up.

Soon, along with Lovino's partner Ned, they create one of the greatest hooch-smuggling teams of the decade. However, the longer they work, the more Lovino and Antonio have to focus their skills in deception on hiding their growing affections.

    Summary

    A 'modern' AU set in 'roaring twenties' prohibition, mob-run Chicago. Story based on a picture drawn by the lovely and talented doubleleaf.

    Malik is trying to squeeze his way into the good graces of the local mob Boss, and Altair is tasked with overseeing the whole initiation. For two guys that seem so up front about everything, they don't expect the secrets they discover about each other.

    Slow build (UST) type of story. Characters will be tagged in as I write them in. Rating subject to change. [ I'm terrible at writing summaries ^.^; ]

    Summary

    " Wade might of gone to work for another of the bosses had he not been locked up in crazy-town at the time.
    Might of at least asked for more cash, but electroshock makes a man desperate and it's damn hard to bargain in a straitjacket."

    Wade Wilson is the go-to muscle for Cable: the biggest, baddest bootlegger in 1920s New York City- and the only thing keeping Wade out of the local asylum. Peter Parker is just a guy trying to make ends meet selling newspapers, going steady with a cute gal named Mary-Jane who works as a dancer down in Brooklyn.
    One night, they're both in the same crowded speakeasy.

    They had no way of knowing what one meeting would set into motion.

Along with fame and fortune, Louis has managed to find love in a beautiful young woman named Eleanor Calder. Not long after proposing to her, Louis is introduced to a handsome reporter called Harry. Louis can't help but find Harry intriguing, with his unruly curls that don't fit in, and the small blonde on his arm that he seems to have little interest in. The two become friends quickly, and they begin to find themselves growing feelings for one another.

    But their love affair isn't as easy as they thought it would be, and they are soon spiraling into a trail of lies, deceit and danger.

    Cast out by his family for a massacre he didn't commit (his brother did), Thor is on the run from Laufey's wrath. He runs straight into Tony Stark whose father is barely dead and is known for making spur of the moment choices that haunt him for far longer.
