    Summary

    The year is 1988 and the city of Charleston teeters perilously on the cusp of something, not by accident; later someone will remark: “they were all just too ahead of the times.” People say the era’s not ready (it’s not), but Alex Hamilton wants to watch their expectations go up in flames - fireworks over the status quo skyline.

    Summary

    Golden Lace AU: Robert Gold is a talent manager working in Los Angeles during the 1980s. Lacey French is a struggling musician who has moved to the Sunset Strip to pursue her dreams of rock stardom. The two get more than they bargained for when Gold offers her a management contract and she readily accepts.

    Kinda slowburn. Non-linear narrative (i.e. lots of chapters that are flashbacks into each of their pasts- especially Gold’s). Some chapters might get kind of songfic-y. Sorry not sorry. I'll be updating tags/ratings/trigger warnings as they come.

    Summary

    Dirk Strider was always used to having his life planned out for him, and he was perfectly comfortable with it. He'd make it through his last year of high school, get a football scholarship, and move as far away from his older brother as he could. Just as he was coming to terms with the fact that he would be living out a pre-written life, he comes across Jake English. He was an adventurous brunette with eyes like emeralds and a smile like the sun, who would certainly not be living a pre-written life.
    Throughout the course of one school year, Dirk's world is flipped completely upside down, and he finds all of his morals being completely rewritten. He can't decide which is scarier, the fact that Jake is doing this to him, or the fact that he might want him to.

    Summary

    Jack tries to be optimistic, he has all this fire and no outlet, it'd be so easy to let the flames lick his feet, stand upon the embers and let the inevitable fall into place.

    Summary

    The Iron Bull, a star on the field, doesn't quite get his roommate. Still, he never expected a prim and proper mage to come home reeking of alcohol and with cheeks puffier than his own.

    This is an alternative, very explicit ending to the otherwise mostly G-rated 'Promise'. http://archiveofourown.org/works/3985618

    Summary

    The year is 1981, and Iron Bull sits in an empty bar telling Lavellan, Leliana and Sera all about the 1970s - specifically his time near the Tevinter border, in a bustling border town called Trevis. He likes to embellish slightly. He also likes to see them squirm when he gets to the filthy parts - though Sera mostly just laughs.

    It's a story of three things: One, how the chargers came together before becoming most imposing collegiate sports teams in Thedas. Two, what it was like for Bull to be out on his own a queer kid in the 70s. Third, how he met Krem, and the long road that led them there.

    It is the 1980s, and Eren and his friends are part of the Maria High School football team, normally one of the best teams in the country. Maria is a small town with a big school, where the people live and breathe football. The school is in the top 10 for the number of kids that move on to college football, like all-state quarterback Mike Zacharius, or the Gatorade high school player of the year, cornerback Levi Ackerman. However, a decline in recent years has led the school to hire a new coach. Will the gang be able to return “The Scouts” to their former glory, win the national championship, and survive high school? Drama ensues as their friendships are tested. High school can be a rough four years.

    Summary

    ‘This is why he did it,’ Kazuya says, softer, almost subdued under the battle cries beyond the safety of their curtain, their bubble. ‘You’re live in two. This is why.’

    He doesn’t have to point or explain; Youichi knows he’s talking about the curtain, and the octagon that they’re on the head of. The screams are louder now, in Youichi’s head. Not all are for them, and not all aren’t. Some of those fifteen thousand know who they’re screaming for, and others don’t— but they all will. Soon, they all will. He’s live in two. One, now, because the screams are dying down. Live in one, if he can get his legs to move.

    Summary

    The Skywalker twins were a strong duo, and they mattered—both to Han’s small world and to the world at large.

    (Or, the 80s AU where Han is a punk without a cause, Leia has great taste in music, and Luke looks like an extra in a Wham! video).
