    My Berenice..."

    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

    Shortly after relocating to Los Angeles, struggling musician Lacey French signs a management contract with Robert Gold. Cut-throat and well-connected, he's just the right person to launch her career into bonafide rockstar status. But as Lacey's success quickly grows, so does the tension between them. 1980s/Music Industry AU.

    Kinda slowburn. Eventual smut. Non-linear narrative (i.e. lots of chapters that are flashbacks into each of their pasts- especially Gold’s). I'll be updating tags/ratings/trigger warnings as they come.

    Summary

    In all of England, there is one forest renowned for the abnormal, a place inspiring fear and wonder; the Wistman's Wood. The land is verdant, and ripe with legends from ages past. Steeped in lore and marsh for all the world to see, magic pours from it like water from a pitcher. However, this deep forest is only a tourist attraction now, a National Park for families on holiday to visit.

    But still, those who wander the woods may be lucky enough to learn its secrets.

    Summary

    Roane accidentally made me write Modern AU, inspired a little by some of my own queer adventures in the late 1980s.

    Luke is a dissatisfied farm boy with a gifted mind, all dolled up in eyeliner and mesh; Han is a world-weary cabbie with a lot of debts, a bad man on his tail, and a smartass dog. Together, they...well, they don't fight crime but they might commit some. Cobbled together from memory, nostalgia, and bits of the original movies.
