    Summary

    A series of writing prompts I've been (inactively) working on since June 3rd, 2016. Genres/ratings vary, though a fair share are raunchy and/or crude. A select few prompts will have aspects of certain books, TV shows, or movies, hence their tagging in the fandom category.

    Summary

    I wanted to play with the power dynamics of Stannis and Davos. The setting is the mid-1930s during the Great Depression in America. The stock market collapse of the late 20s caused rich men like Stannis to lose everything, and some of them had to start over and perhaps settle for working for blue collar men like Davos. In this AU, Stannis and Davos both enjoy that power swap more than they expected.

    Summary

    It is the better part of a millennium before the Battle of Yavin, and a period of uncertainty for the Old Republic. In the throes of a depression despite a period of peace, increasing numbers of people are forced to the lower levels of Coruscant, away from the prying eyes of Republic governance - the body of which may well have the tendrils of corruption pervading it.

    Summary

    1935. The Great Depression ravages the world. Fascism threatens Europe. Millions languish in poverty and despair. The nations stand on the brink of ruin or rebirth.

    Aspiring writer Jughead Jones navigates through the perilous economic and political climate of the 1930s. Veronica Lodge's wealthy father battles Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal. Betty Cooper tries to tone down the Riverdale Register's rabid isolationism just a little bit. Cliff Blossom disperses striking laborers with a little help from the Pinkerton Detective Agency and grapples with the fact that his son Jason is a Communist. Archie Andrews still can't make a decision to save his life.

    And they are all about to find themselves thrust into the shadows of conspiracy, treason, class struggle, and war.

    Or the Great Depression AU no one asked for.

    Levi is a Boxer in 1932. It's the Great Depression and there are just no jobs to be had, so he spends every waking moment fighting or training just to be able to eat and pay rent. He's very lonely so he sometimes "seeks comfort" with a prostitute. One day he visits the Red Light District, looking for companionship, and the unexpected and almost unbeleivable happens.

    Summary

    "Just go pick up some Eurotrash from the docks."

    Harvey looked between all three of them with wide eyes and a furrowed brow, tapping the grey ash from his cigarette into a clear ashtray. "Don't tell me you haven't seen 'em. Crawling onto the docks- all fresh off the boat from Ellis island."

    "Well, they're desperate- they'll take anything if it pays more than a cent. You could probably get one to do both jobs."

    Joe looked thoughtful, Pete looked interested, and Andy looked sad. Their personalities could not have been more perfectly outlined in their reactions to the news of masses of hungry-for-work, starving immigrants.

     

    "The docks, eh?"

    Summary

    It’s the photo of the two of you when you’re older that really catches his eye. He’s in uniform, grinning. His arms around you as you smile bemusedly at the camera, your hands on his shoulders. You’re wearing a dress and a striped apron, and he thinks he sees a pin on your dress. The photo’s in black and white, but Bucky can remember the dress being in your favorite color, and the apron being red, white, and blue.

     

    Bucky seeks answers to what happened to you after he was presumed dead, but first he must tell your story. Along the way, he learns things he never knew: about you, about the people around him past and present, and most importantly, himself.

    Summary

    Steve Rogers looks for death, that elusive fucker dodging him left and right. He stares at walls, talks to ghosts and smokes a boatload of weed. He has a homeless friend who sells stuff on the sidewalk. He eats greasy burgers and barbecue chips. He works for S.H.I.E.L.D., because why the hell not? Yet, unwittingly, there are several things he rediscovers: communism, sex, and then, unbowed, unbroken and very much unhinged, the only equal to his insanity: Bucky Barnes.

    ---

    Or: Jumping off Brooklyn Bridge, a road trip through Europe, fucking up against walls and fighting over God and Marx.

    Summary

    He crawled across the short expanse of the tree house and tugged on Stiles’ shirt.

    “What, are they bringing reinforcerants?”

    “It’s reinforcements, and no, but I wanted to try something.”

    “Okay?”

    Derek took his face in his hands and smiled at him, and Stiles smiled back. Jesus, his heart was beating so quickly, and was it really that loud or could only Derek hear that? This was going to be his first kiss.

    He leaned forward and brushed his lips against Stiles’.

    And than quickly fell backwards with a gasp.

    “What the heck Stiles!” Derek moaned, hand going to the side of his face. When he looked up Stiles was holding the baseball bat they kept in the treehouse and his eyes were the size of two grapefruit.

    Or, Derek was nine years old when he fell in love with Stiles. This is their life story.

    Summary

    In a world where Cartoons exist alongside their creators, the Great Depression hits and companies are forced to take drastic measures to ensure their presence in these daunting times.
    Circa 1933, Joey Drew takes the West by storm with his Bendy Cartoons. Some say his creations will blow Disney straight out of the water.

    There's only one particular problem:
    The studio's stars are growing surprisingly restless.

    Bendy and Boris are captives for the studio they work for. Nobody knows of the truth about the Ink Machine and what it REALLY DOES.
    Either they will get the truth out to the world, or they will die trying.
    Personally, they prefer the latter over the former. Less death on their part.

    Summary

    "Steve is eleven, Bucky twelve, and they’ve been told often enough that they’re getting too old for this: sleeping side by side, sharing space like the brothers they’re not. Neither his mother nor Bucky’s has outright banned this bad habit, but he thinks that’s only because they still expect their sons to grow out of it. That’s exactly what Bucky might do, and it scares Steve, since he could happily sleep like this every night for the rest of his life."

    Summary

    "Aw, Stevie, don't be like that." Bucky's voice was muffled by the door, but even given that, it didn't sound right. "Open up."

    Steve fumbled with the lock, threw open the door, and there was Bucky, standing in the hallway, a suitcase in his hand and a bruise on one side of his jaw.

    "We gotta go, Stevie," he said. "We gotta go now."

    When Steve and Bucky get careless, they end up having to run away. But maybe running away will find them the home they've always needed.
