    Summary

    It's 1984 in Los Angeles, California, and Percy Jackson gets kicked in the head, likes some band on a guy's shirt, goes to a cemetery with said guy, and gets handed a mixtape from him one summer night. That's how his crazy flirtation with death starts and it's anything but pulseless. Punk AU. Actually happy and cute. Incredibly self indulgent and for fun.

    Summary

    If Sina, Maria and Rose were just road names in an average town, in regular ass-crack nowhere in America mid-1982, this is how things would have most likely turned out.

    80's AU where the SNK cast are teenagers doing teenage things during their summer vacation, learning about love, life, liquor and (kind of) responsibility.

    Summary

    I don't care how you do it. I don't care who you murder, what you burn or who gets caught in the crossfire. Follow my orders, see your objectives complete and I will reward you like kings, you will be untouchable. Fail and I will see to it that your corpses will be the first I tread upon as I walk into the city and take it for myself. Let me make this clear, you are disposable, you are pathetic and you are worthless in the long run, and only if you prove yourselves now will I consider keeping you as I move onto greater things. Now get to work. -Orders from English-

    Summary

    He had been drunk and stumbling and bruised, shoving and falling and being shoved, circling and dancing and not knowing the words, just letting the anger in them flow into him and wash away. And then he was letting himself tumble into the circle and Enjolras had grabbed him by the shirt, face inches away. He had found himself still, staring into the cold blue fire of his eyes: this wild animal, this avenging angel screaming “stand up and be counted, stand up and be counted,” into his face before shoving R back roughly into the crowd and circling into another direction.

    The Abased are maybe not the world's most notable hardcore band, but they're serious about standing up against the complacent, capitalist, idealized society of the mid-eighties and their friends are too.

    Well, the friends that aren't drunkenly ranting about how idiotic this whole thing is, or busy with a crush on some random girl.

    But the rest of them. Yeah.

    Summary

    Set in the time of two Germanys, a wall and a very hot summer in the 80s, Jean Kirschstein is forced to go on a vacation to Hungary with his parents.
    We have, on the one side (the West, apparently) a grumpy Jean with a penchant for Rock music and on the other side Marco Bott, having a vacation with his friends.

    And of course, they are destined to meet, even though they grew up in different nations and different political systems.

    This is about falling in love the first time, learning what's important that some things have to be accepted in order to change them.

    Summary

    Jake and Hades have a few hours to kill. (There's a little plot here but you kind of have to look for it.)

    Inspired by this image by Indelicateink, who is also responsible for Miamiverse in general, so basically totally her fault.

    Summary

    "From Stettin in the Baltic to Trieste in the Adriatic, an iron curtain has descended across the Continent. Behind that line lie all the capitals of the ancient states of Central and Eastern Europe. Warsaw, Berlin, Prague, Vienna, Budapest, Belgrade, Bucharest and Sofia, all these famous cities and the populations around them lie in what I must call the Soviet sphere, and all are subject in one form or another, not only to Soviet influence but to a very high and, in many cases, increasing measure of control from Moscow."

    (Winston Churchill, "The Sinews of Peace")

    Summary

    As their lips slide together, Santana's brain shuts down, and everything she's worried about - Sugar's inability to play even the simplest riffs, whether they're ever going to get an actual paying gig, how many more conversations she's going to have with her parents about her 'future plans', where they strongly hint that those plans better not include 'rock band' or 'Brittany' in them - it all vanishes.

    It's 1985 and 22-year-old Santana, her girlfriend Brittany, and their friends are trying to start an all-girl rock band in Lima, Ohio.

    Summary

    A collection of ficlets and snippets inspired by Tumblr and #xmentales chat.

    So far: Charles is a cat or a Renaissance-era muse or a professor or an imprisoned high-level telepath or a young man of the senatorial class in Rome or an Oceanid. Meanwhile, Erik is sick or a talented but struggling painter or a graduate student or a spy searching for his missing telepath or a former gladiator-turned-slave or a pirate. Also they are both seahorses. Or fae. Or gods. Or platypuses. Or genetically-modified fruit. Or space travelers. Or on a date. And there's one with Wesley Gibson and Brandon Sullivan. And one with Wesley again, but also Max, Simon, and Brian. And a couple of A/O snippets, one on a boat and one in a bedroom.
