    Summary

    “You do this, you do. You take the things you love
    and tear them apart
    or you pin them down with your body and pretend they're yours.
    So, you kiss him, and he doesn't move, he doesn't
    pull away, and you keep on kissing him. And he hasn't moved,
    he's frozen, and you've kissed him, and he'll never
    forgive you, and maybe now he'll leave you alone.”

    A brutal murder on Christmas Eve abruptly pulls one Detective Nikiforov out of a holiday he was just starting to tolerate, and forces him to come to terms with demons he's been pretending not to see. On that same night, a man walks into a bar and waltzes into his life, lighting a spark that grows into a monster of its own.

    Summary

    In the 1920's era of prohibition, there lies a life of glitz and glamour that everyone seeks. Fresh off another world tour, and retired from the famous Ballet Russes, Viktor searches for something to spark his passions once more, and it could be that he has found just that. Former dancer Katsuki Yuuri catches the eye of renowned ballet dancer Viktor Nikiforov as he must fill in one night at one of the up and coming speakeasies on the late night Chicago strip.

    -*-*-*-

    There was a drop in the beat, and the dancer threw a hand to his lips, feigning a wide-eyed gasp, as his leg kicked up beside his head. On two feet once more, he turned over his shoulder and blew a kiss, complete with a knowing wink, towards the audience.

    Viktor was enthralled.

    Summary

    Once upon a time in the 1920s, a young and poor Castiel Milton comes to New York to become a wealthy man. He rents a beach house at the Long Island shore in order to learn about finance and the stock market, but is quickly distracted by his rich and iridescent neighbour, The Great Dean Winchester. This tycoon once courted Castiel's cousin Zelda. Dean and Castiel are almost immediately attracted to each other and start a passionate affaire, which the prudish Castiel never dared to imagine. But as all-consuming this love is, Dean regularly pushes Castiel away and tells him he is only really devoted to Zelda.
    After struggles with his self confidence issues, Castiel learns that Dean is truly, deeply and madly in love with him, but is afraid by the thought of being a Homosexual and losing his reputation. With the gilded glitter of the Roaring Twenties, the always present threat of war, its danger to the human soul and the knowledge that their passion for each other is a crime, can Dean and Castiel finally find a place for their forbidden love?

    Summary

    The resets keep happening, but Papyrus is gone. Nearly six years of grief have warped Sans, causing him to risk his soul with self-destructive behavior and making him all but unrecognizable to his old friends. Any day now, he expects a reset that will bring him far enough back in time to reunite with his brother and erase his sins. In the meantime, he'll distract himself with Muffet's new call girl...

    You need a lot of money, right now. Unlike the majority of humans in the slums of New Ebott, you don't have any anti-monster prejudice, and you're kinky, submissive and enjoy sex. You've heard someone like you can do very well for herself, catering to monsters. Now here you are with your first client, a skeleton monster in a suit offering you a drink from a hip flask...

    Undertale gangster AU with a 1930s-era American aesthetic, essentially because I like the clothes. Status updates and story chatter at http://neroli9.tumblr.com.

    Summary

    Prohibition Era, Ebott City: A place where humans and monsters have always existed together with a strained and somewhat fragile peace. Most of the city’s denizens simply want to live out their daily lives in a simple cohabitation. Life, however is rarely so easy. There are five large gangs within the city limits, one of the more powerful ones being made up completely of monsters. The balance of power between the four human mafia gangs and the monster mob is delicate, spurring racism and acts of violence from both sides.
    Frisk, the younger sister of infamous detective Chara Dreemurr, receives an anonymous call with clues to the case against her older brother’s sudden mysterious disappearance. Unable to obtain police assistance, she takes up her brother’s mantle and plunges into the seedy underbelly of Ebott City’s criminal organizations. Each new piece of information only brings about more questions as the web of confusion and deceit is spun around her. Who can she trust in this dangerous game? Will she find Chara before it’s too late or will she become hopelessly entangled in the sinister lifestyles of the mob?

    Summary

    Si on devait lui demander comment il imaginait son futur, Daryun aurait répondu qu'il serait simple. Les détails - le mariage, les enfants, la maison - tout pouvait se négocier. La seule chose qu'il était capable de dire, c'est : simple, comme d'autre disent "pas remarquable".
