    Summary

    In this story, Tony Stark and Steve Rogers are contemporaries, and both have hard-knock lives in 1939-1941 New York. Hard to say whose is worse. Steve is sickly. Tony's a whore. They become friends-- the world is going crazy with war, adding to the tension of daily life.

    Tony is/was an underage prostitute, but as that's not explicit*, I felt the warning tag was misleading, however if even that much is disturbing, I thought I'd best mention it here.

    CHAPTER 22 became EXPLICIT Sex, but at the time Tony was 17 years old, 10 months, and some days, so it's not all that MUCH underage. There was no explicit sex when he was younger.

    (There's tons of Google Research in the times and events of daily life in NYC and world events. Where reasonable, factoids have been woven into the story, but there's a lot left over that wound up in chapter notes.)

    Summary

    There never was just one Captain America. How could there be, when there are an infinite number of universes?

    In one, James Barnes lost his dearest friend to diphtheria at the age of fourteen. In another, Steve Rogers arrived in France to find James Barnes listed among those KIA in the capture of the 107th.

    And not all Captain Americas are created equal, but things always balance themselves out in the end and universes align more often than we’d guess. Thor could have told them that if anyone had asked him.

    Summary

    In the aftermath of Dean's final showdown with Metatron, Cas goes missing—though it's not so much a matter of "where" but "when." Desperate and on edge, Dean convinces a wary Sam to travel back to 1947 on a rescue mission, only to discover Bartholomew’s scheme to infiltrate the LAPD and the dark secrets of a forgotten society. To make matters worse, Dean has no recollection of recent events and struggles with lingering effects of the Mark. As he attempts to regain his memory, he fears the nightmares lurking at the back of his mind are ticking bombs, and Cas may be his only hope of keeping himself from losing his grip on reality completely.

    NOTE: Major character death is temporary and open to interpretation. Also, L.A. Noire is serving as more of a backdrop to the story. A few characters from L.A. Noire will make appearances, but they won't be the main focus. However, there may be spoilers for L.A. Noire, although I don't anticipate a need to spoil the game's ending.

    Summary

    In the aftermath of the Second World War, Erik Lehnsherr -- survivor of Dachau, former resistance fighter in Occupied Europe -- joins forces with US intelligence to hunt down escaped Nazis. A sensitive mission in Rio de Janeiro calls for Erik to recruit a new operative ... one nobody is sure whether to trust. Charles Xavier is the stepson of convicted Nazi spy Kurt Marko, a rapidly worsening drunkard and a homosexual who hardly even bothers to hide his predilections. Hardly ideal.

    But Charles is the only person with any chance of getting close to Sebastian Shaw. The one man who might allow them to complete the mission.

    And although Erik's business is keeping secrets, Charles brings something out in him that he's worked desperately to hide --

    (Pastiche with Alfred Hitchcock's "Notorious." And now dedicated to the memory of the awesome Clawfoot Tub.)

The first by the Dark Knight himself. The second by a myth far older than the City. One of the deep myths before the oldest books. A myth that's mighty, and unrelenting, and wondrous.
