    Summary

    I'm setting this story in the Fascist Dystopia that I know best, which is Sinclair Lewis' prescient book, It Can't Happen Here. If I do this thing right, I'll add in enough details that you don't need to have read the book to understand the story.

    Basically, the story is this: A Fascist gets elected as President of the US. One of his associates knows of Tony's homosexuality and alcoholism, and uses those to pressure him to work for the Administration. While in Washington, Tony meets Loki. Loki is a trans-character (although in the context of the time this story takes place, it's not completely understood that way). She's working as a sex-worker, victimized by members of the Fascist government. Tony takes her away from that, and gives her a new life as his partner. They take in an orphan, Peter Parker, and make a family for themselves.

    Tony finally manages to escape himself. In exile in Mexico, he tells the story of his past, and nerves himself to go back and rescue his family.

    Summary

    "'You have committed a vile and savage act, one that any other nation would punish with death. Our punishment, on the other hand, will only be to give you what you want. You have sought to live in a world without boundaries of civilization, and such a world shall henceforth be your dwelling place.'"

    A cold-hearted murderer. A vicious abuser. A young man hiding a shameful secret. A bewildered immigrant. A pure-minded spy.

    All of these men have found their appointed places at Mercy Life Prison, where it is easy to tell who your enemies are. But a new visitor to Mercy is about to challenge decades-old customs. Now these men's worst enemies may be hiding behind masks . . . and so may their closest allies.

    Formerly posted as "Life Prison." Includes an illustration by Everybery in the end notes. This novel was a runner-up in the Gay Fantasy category of the Rainbow Awards 2014.

    Summary

    From the time Mrs. Barkley met them as unruly and hyper twelve year olds in middle school, she took them under her wing. She’d breathed color and hope into their dreams, helped them realize that they could actually go out and attain them. When everyone else was telling them to be realistic and see that their future was just like everyone else’s, she taught them how to do what they needed to in order to get out of their beautiful, homely, loving town.

    And now, the woman who had taught all of them such important lessons, the woman who had never failed to send them birthday cards no matter where they were scattered around the country, the woman they’d call in addition to their moms on Mother’s Day, she was gone.

    Or the one where OT5 are back together in their small hometown for just one day and maybe that's the perfect time for Harry and Louis to do more than just reminisce.

    Summary

    “If you don’t know what you’re living for, you haven’t yet lived.” – Rabbi Noah Weinberg

    Modern College & Political AU. Tywin Lannister, head of Lannister Industries, has fought Ned Stark’s attempts to derail oil business policy in New York for over a decade. When rumor spreads that Ned will run for state senator, Tywin hires his former lobbyist, Professor Baelish, to woo and use Ned’s naïve freshman daughter in attempt to sabotage his campaign. Lectures in politics become a taboo romance, makeouts in the back office, awkward shabbat dinners and moral dilemmas. And, as they say, “shit happens.”

    This fic is sweltering-hot cheese in a fondue pot. Take it. Eat it. Love it.

    Summary

    AU/Continuation, unavoidable spoilers. The story didn't end when the two finally got together. When dark forces emerge from the depths to threaten mankind, one will learn that she is more than who or what she thought she was. For when it was said, years ago, that one might encounter something not quite human at twilight, all present might be forgiven for not considering that the entity in question might be oneself.

    Summary

    Park Jimin was the quiet kid in the back of class and drew instead of paying attention to the lecture. They were the kid who sat by themselves at lunch because their best friend and QPP was in a different lunch period. They were the kid who wore over-sized hoodies and large sweaters every single day, even if it was summer. They were the kid who constantly had loud music screaming in their ears to block out the snide remarks and ugly comments from their peers around them.

    Park Jimin was known as the suicidal freak around their high school and they were ready to just quit.
