    Summary

    This is my first attempt at writing about footballers in an Alternate Universe. Here, the setting takes place in South America in the 1970s. It draws some inspiration from Ernesto "Che" Guevara's "Motorcycle Diaries". The story is in and of itself an original work of fiction. I know many of the cities, and roads from when I lived in what is referred to as "The Southern Cone." Most of the characters I will weave into the story are from the teams I follow closely (Uruguay NT, Argentina NT, Brazil NT and Colombia NT), but a special focus will be on the players I happen to know more about.

    After overcoming depression, Diego Forlán takes a leave of absence from his faculty position as Professor of Spanish Literature to go on a road trip with his more adventurous and uninhibited friend and namesake, Diego Lugano (whom I will refer to as "Tota"). Forlán hopes to rekindle his love for life and overcome his writer's block. They travel to Argentina, Chile, Peru, ending in Colombia. They meet others and discover things they never knew about themselves as they give into to the experience of living life to the fullest. This story is told in Forlán's voice/point of view.

    Summary

    John Watson is a doctor who meets a gorgeous British violinist in a chance encounter in Kansas City in 1977.

    John is a native of Kansas City, and as such, he uses Midland American speech patterns, idioms, and spellings in his dialogue and his narrative.

    Note: I would like to be clear that the only reason condoms are not used in this story is because it would be anachronistic. Please be safe!

    Summary

    AU, set in the 1970's: Someone's killing gay men in Los Angeles, targeting men they find at an S&M bar near Skid Row. The police can't seem to wrap their minds around the subculture enough to catch the killer, and Vietnam veteran/burnout, Tony Stark gets involved.

    Re the tags: I'm putting in the pairings that I know will be in there. Tony was married to Pepper. She left him, because she couldn't handle the effects of his PTSD, after he came back from the war. He is definitely paired with Loki, and Steve's definitely paired with Bucky. I might add in TonyxSteve as well, depending how things work out, as the story progresses, and depending if I can generate some chemistry between them. Which is hard for me, there's something about that straight-arrow/Boy Scout type that's a turnoff for me, and it's hard to write a pairing you don't find very attractive.

    Summary

    Rick never would have imagined that his relationship with Daryl would start at a frat party, sitting in a bathtub, trying to get Daryl to sober up. He never would have thought that after such a whirlwind night like that, Rick's entire life would revolve around the desire to be with Daryl at all times. The only problem is that Shane is having none of it, Merle doesn't trust Rick, and Daryl just wants to live his life the way he wants to.

    Summary

    Nell'estate del 1974, Ryan Ross s'imbarca in uno spossante tour in supporto dell'album che portò alla fama mondiale la sua band, combattendo per sopravvivere alla pressione e alle aspettative della fama improvvisa. Mentre tenta di gestire la sua band sull'orlo dello scioglimento, tra migliori amici bugiardi e ragazze di passaggio, Ryan imbocca una pericolosa e distruttiva strada, permettendosi di desiderare l'unica persona che non può avere.

    "Sarei stato felice con un successo mediocre, un demo, dei piccoli tour, riuscire a stare con i piedi per terra. È ciò che volevo, cosa che ho probabilmente avuto da qualche parte tra il primo e il secondo album, ma che ho perso. Non me ne sono accorto. Adesso ho la mia faccia sui giornali, fan urlanti che si dimenano al mio passaggio e vorrei solo far retromarcia con quest'auto al quel momento che mi è sfuggito, quel momento in un club di Buffalo dove ho notato che un paio di ragazzi tra le trecento persone del pubblico stavano cantando le mie canzoni, e dove il mio cuore si è fermato alla conquista. Ma è troppo tardi adesso, e ormai è andata."

    Summary

    They loved like the sun and the moon, chasing each other's tails for a single hug or kiss, sometimes just to feel each other's presence. They chased and they chased, but deep down they knew they couldn't be together, not really. They couldn't be free of the challenge they faced when Castiel lost his memory, the space between them growing more and more. The flowers he got Dean for each of their dates sat atop of Dean's dresser, dying along with his hopes of getting the love of his life back.

    Summary
