    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.)

    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

    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

    Sherlock plays the Naked Chef, and John wonders about that life insurance policy 'someone' made him take out. There are worries over a moustachioed new German leader, and the two idjits add to their growing list of places from which they have been banned for... well, being them. And the United States delivers rather more than just a new car.

    Summary

    He comes home and Sansa is exactly as Bran had written: different. She’d been quiet growing up, at least to Jon, but the stony, steel-spined woman who lets him hug her on the dusty porch and whisper out his guilt into her skin is leagues away from the girl he left behind.

    The girl he left behind to keep safe.

    (Those Targaryens. They’ll bite down until they taste blood.)

    When they were younger, she’d always looked at him like he was a betrayal. To what, Jon was never sure. Her mother, who loathed Jon as evidence that her husband was a flawed, mortal man. Her father, whose honour outside of Jon’s existence was beyond reproach. Her siblings, who all treated him as the brother that Sansa never did.

    Now she looks at him like the betrayed. “Welcome home,” she says with a brittle voice, but she touches the scar that runs through his eyebrow, a gift from the oil fields.

    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

    "I can look after myself." Steve bristled. "And how about you? You go around taking on three fighters from the Hip Sing Tong on a regular basis?"

    "Sure," the guy said, and then he gave Steve a big grin. "I don't like bullies either."

    "Jeez, we're two of a kind, ain't we?" Steve laughed and stuck out his hand. "Steve Rogers."

    The guy took his hand in a firm grip.

    "Bucky Dyun."

    "Bucky?"

    "Yeah, unless you want to call me Pok Chi like my ma does."

    "Bucky it is."

    Steve Rogers doesn't know much about Chinese culture when he makes a wrong turn in Chinatown. But a chance meeting gives him not only a new friend, but an entry into a whole new world. The more he learns from Bucky, the closer they get, until Bucky is so much more than a friend. But when a Chinese gang goes after Bucky and his family, Steve knows he needs to stand up and make sure the man he loves doesn't lose everything.
