    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

    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

    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.

    Summary

    Remus has been living in the past six years of his short, eleven-years-long life, by one, simple rule that needed no explaining. His parents drilled it into his mind along the alphabet and multiplication table. He couldn't remember not knowing and strictly obeying it. The rule was: all contact with peers might lead to revealing his secret. Thus, in his primary he refrained becoming closer than acquaintances, the term used loosely.
    But when he has to share a dorm with three cheerful, bright-eyed boys, he feels himself being pulled to them like tides to the moon.

    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. Eventual smut. 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

    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
