    Summary

    A loosely inspired Little Mermaid AU involving children both curious and rebellious, a very unusual confidant, a dastardly plot against two kingdoms, and a tragic love story from ten years ago. (As created under the name tornrose24 on tumblr. Somehow I'm insane enough to attempt this idea).

    Summary

    "The murderer is with us-on the train now . . ."

    Just after midnight and only halfway along its journey, the famous Hogwarts Express is stopped in its tracks by a snowdrift. By morning, the millionaire Tom Riddle lies dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside. One of his fellow passengers must be the murderer.

    Isolated by the storm, Private Detective Hercule Poirot must find the killer among a dozen of the dead man's enemies, before the murderer decides to strike again. Will it be the graceful governess- Hermione Granger? The aggressive ministry official- Ron Weasley? Or one of the many other characters joined together by a simple holiday? In a world of magic and murder mystery, there will be lots of surprises to be found.

    A re-write of one of my favourite novels, Murder On The Orient Express by Agatha Christie, I hope you enjoy this just as much as I am enjoying writing it.

    See the end-notes for the full list of what characters from Harry Potter are filling which roles from the novel.

    Summary

    The resets keep happening, but Papyrus is gone. Nearly six years of grief have warped Sans, causing him to risk his soul with self-destructive behavior and making him all but unrecognizable to his old friends. Any day now, he expects a reset that will bring him far enough back in time to reunite with his brother and erase his sins. In the meantime, he'll distract himself with Muffet's new call girl...

    You need a lot of money, right now. Unlike the majority of humans in the slums of New Ebott, you don't have any anti-monster prejudice, and you're kinky, submissive and enjoy sex. You've heard someone like you can do very well for herself, catering to monsters. Now here you are with your first client, a skeleton monster in a suit offering you a drink from a hip flask...

    Undertale gangster AU with a 1930s-era American aesthetic, essentially because I like the clothes. Status updates and story chatter at http://neroli9.tumblr.com.

    Summary

    Prohibition Era, Ebott City: A place where humans and monsters have always existed together with a strained and somewhat fragile peace. Most of the city’s denizens simply want to live out their daily lives in a simple cohabitation. Life, however is rarely so easy. There are five large gangs within the city limits, one of the more powerful ones being made up completely of monsters. The balance of power between the four human mafia gangs and the monster mob is delicate, spurring racism and acts of violence from both sides.
    Frisk, the younger sister of infamous detective Chara Dreemurr, receives an anonymous call with clues to the case against her older brother’s sudden mysterious disappearance. Unable to obtain police assistance, she takes up her brother’s mantle and plunges into the seedy underbelly of Ebott City’s criminal organizations. Each new piece of information only brings about more questions as the web of confusion and deceit is spun around her. Who can she trust in this dangerous game? Will she find Chara before it’s too late or will she become hopelessly entangled in the sinister lifestyles of the mob?

    Summary

    1932.

    Berenice Griselda Wolfe dreams that there is more to life than the crushing inevitability that she will eventually wed the charming yet dull Marcus Dunn and settle down to the comfortable yet mundane existence of a country doctor’s wife.

    A keen amateur racing driver, Marcus begins to compete at the newly-opened Holby Speedway.

    Bernie’s world is soon turned upside down when she falls beneath the captivating spell of Serena Campbell: a flirtatious, indomitable woman who is determined to reach the very top of the motor racing world in her little Bugatti Type 51.

    As the two women grow closer, Bernie’s life is about to change irreparably as she finds herself being drawn into the murky dealings of the bohemian world within an exclusive London private members’ club and the high-profile glamour of the racing set.

    Surrounded by scandal, jealous rivalries and the lingering shadow cast by the suspicious circumstances of Edward Campbell’s death in 1929, will Bernie and Serena’s fledgling relationship survive the strain?

    Summary

    "Let’s never go back," he said, so suddenly that Flint stopped the car right there in the middle of the open road.

    "What?"

    "Fuck that town, and fuck that way of life. I’m tired of busting my ass for scrap change. ‘Been this way my entire fucking life, ever since my folks went and died on me." Silver gave a shy smile. "Frankly, your way seems like much more fun."

    Summary

    1935. The Great Depression ravages the world. Fascism threatens Europe. Millions languish in poverty and despair. The nations stand on the brink of ruin or rebirth.

    Aspiring writer Jughead Jones navigates through the perilous economic and political climate of the 1930s. Veronica Lodge's wealthy father battles Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal. Betty Cooper tries to tone down the Riverdale Register's rabid isolationism just a little bit. Cliff Blossom disperses striking laborers with a little help from the Pinkerton Detective Agency and grapples with the fact that his son Jason is a Communist. Archie Andrews still can't make a decision to save his life.

    And they are all about to find themselves thrust into the shadows of conspiracy, treason, class struggle, and war.

    Or the Great Depression AU no one asked for.

    Summary

    Normally, both of them would be far more cautious, but being around someone like them—someone who didn’t completely understand what these ‘emotions’ were supposed to be or why they were so important with the exception of a selected flew like anger—that make them lower their shields.

    Summary

    Volcada: a falling step. The leader causes the follower to tilt or lean forward and fall off her axis before he catches her again. The movement requires the support of a close embrace. (Or, the Great Depression is hard on Hotel Gondolin, and Ecthelion is hard on Glorfindel's emotional well-being.)
