    Summary

    Something that's been swishing around in my head between bigger works. Another A/U (cause that seems to be the order of the year for me). 1980's San Francisco finds Kate, Chakotay meeting when he needs to make some money. He get's wrapped up in drama that Quincy, Kate's annoying cousin left when he disappeared weeks ago. Rated for violence, some language.

    Summary

    The way Jackson saw it... he was already dead, wasn’t he?

    Jackson was dead as soon as he walked out of Dynasty with an invitation from the son of one of the biggest kingpins in America. As soon as he felt himself longing for such an extravagant lifestyle — as soon as he wanted to lose himself in it.

    Jackson was a complete goner when a raven haired beauty stared into his eyes, barging into his life off-key and intoxicated, makeup smudged and attitude brazen.

    He craved it. The danger, the abnormal, the spectacular.

    “I accept. I accept this mission.”

    The year is 1985 and Jackson Wang, an undercover agent for the FBI, infiltrates the mob and falls for one of their best drug dealers—an ex model from the Big Apple with more issues than The Times. He calls himself Bambam.

    Summary

    Your name is Dave Strider; the year is 1999. Ever since your first trip to the Makara Bros. Dark Carnival your oversized Texan home hasn't been the same. Your sleep is plagued by night-terrors, and after a particularly vivid hallucination you tell Bro that it's time to ollie the fuck out.

    Your interest in the occult becomes ever-increasing after an acrobatic pirouette into a small Los Angeles apartment, where you find that there are already twelve pre-existing, long dead tenants living there. After a violent encounter with a less then benevolent face-painted demon, you decide that it's time to break out the big guns:

    Enter Seer Rose Lalonde and her paranormal investigation team, John Eggbert and Jade Harley. Unfortunately exorcisms never adhere to the best laid plans, and as a last resort you seek help in the hands of grouchy nub-horned demon and his eleven undead friends. Victory is imminent...

    That is, until you find out who's really been pulling the strings behind the curtain.

    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).

    Summary

    Jyn’s life is entrenched in boys, Bodhi’s rigid sports and extracurricular schedules, and a social life she was swept up in. As a loner, sometimes the only people she talks to outside of school were these boys, Bodhi’s friends. Boys she can not date.

    And when Cassian is there, said best friend, her life is centered around being in the thick of these boys, because he is one of them.

    Who she can not date.

    Summary

    The shower of rain was never enough to shed the blood covering his clothes, and the clothes were never enough to cover the demon crawling on his back, latching on with leaching teeth and razor claws.

    Gintoki clutched his sword in hand, staring up at the grey shower falling rapidly from the sky with an unreadable expression. But it was easy to predict the stone-cold colour and the lifelessness floating within them. Hijikata stared at his back, still, grasping his gun tightly without the will to speak.

    Together, their thoughts were a blank page - unready to be filled with mixed emotions and the pain of wondering whether they could look each other in the eye again.
