    Summary

    The year is 1985. Sakura Haruno waitresses at a local diner and wonders if dropping out of nursing school means she'll be stuck in sleepy, small-town Bedford Falls for the rest of her life, forever in her best friend's shadow. Sasuke Uchiha's a man on the run, thrust into a world deeper and darker than he ever anticipated.

    The chilly Northwestern wind brings change as lives collide, and hearts are bared (as well as broken). The Double R Diner sits at the center of it all- but its foundation will need to be strong enough to weather the storm

    (Falling in love with your best friend can be just as bad as falling in love with your worst enemy).

    Or

    Summary

    A soul mark that suddenly swirls and reforms into a new name at least once a month has some interesting implications for society. First of all, it’s not always a name in a language the wearer can read.

    Some unlucky souls have marks that vanish, never to reform. Does that mean they’re so unlovable that no one could want them? There’s an unbearable thought. A soul mark is a lot like an appendix, everyone has one and one day it could destroy you.

    Brock Rumlow is eighteen years old and a Blank. He's never had a soul mark. And it's killing him.

    This is a 1980's Teen Movie AU.

    Summary

    She awakes to the feeling of something dripping onto her closed mouth. Something… sweet? - with a hint of salt that she hopes is from her sweat. Standing over her is someone silhouetted by the sun. She’s blonde, Erin thinks, and holding two ice cream cones. She doesn’t think she’s seen a better sight in the world before.

    “Hey!” The other girl says quickly, “I’m Holtzmann. You look like you were gonna burn, so I thought I’d come over here. I have this extra ice cream. Do you want one?” The entire passage is said in under ten seconds.

    Erin blinks slowly. Then blinks again. “Huh?”

    -
    In the middle of a sweltering 1980s summer, the Riverdale Holy Rollers gain a new member. But, the love that blossoms between two of their members is not so simple, and has consequences far bigger than they ever expected.

    (It's 'Whip It', but with actual lesbians)

    Summary

    It started at a drive-in in the 1980s.

    No, this isn’t the story about the immaculate conception that happens in the backseats of high school boys’ cars, nor is it the origin story for a New Wave-fueled cocaine addiction. Those two things would be interesting. Unfortunately, this is a love story; a love story about the frontman of Quantum Queef, a punk band, and a boy who drives a red motorcycle.

    Also, they fight aliens.
