    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.

    Summary

    Dark AU, set in the bleak, dying world of the 1930s in Spearman, Texas.

    Shane's life has been anything but easy. Finally things seem to be going right; he's only a month away from a tryout for the Cleveland Indians. Even so, he just can't quite seem to shake the dust. Nothing feels right.

    With Rick out of town to convene the formation of a task force to deal with a string of unexplained deaths in the state, it falls to Shane to keep an eye on his best friend's wife Lori, who has grown distant and depressed by the stark isolation of her life.

    When a strange man appears in Spearman, a pull toward destruction seems exerted on everyone. There couldn't have been a worse time for a Sheriff to leave town.

    A story about the virtue of contentment, and the irrevocable nature of regret.

    Summary

    "Whadaya want me to do?"

    "Just...stick around? I'm bored. I got some games I need another person to play with, and my sister's not home. And...and, y'know, if I get hungry you can run over to the kitchen to get a snack for me. Stuff like that. You'd be like...like my personal manservant or something, for the day."

    Steve looks troubled.

    "I'll still pay you the five bucks," Bucky says, with a cheeky grin. "Please, it's so boring being laid up."

    Steve looks even more troubled; he glances at the other houses lining the street, and Bucky can tell he's calculating the likelihood that anyone else would take him up on his offer of janitorial services. A gust of wind blows by, coating Bucky's face with cold; he sees Steve shiver and, unconsciously, fold his arms across his chest.

    "Goin' once, goin' twice..."

    In which Steve and Bucky come from wildly different worlds, but share the same soul nonetheless.

    Summary

    He takes a moment to absorb Damon’s touches; the hands between his legs; his tongue licking between chin and collarbone, leaving suck marks behind. If he pushes aside the ever-growing, lust-filled knot at the pit of his stomach, and retreats into the depths of his mind where a pinwheel spins in grassy fields—thunder clouds up ahead—tranquil swishing of water between his toes—two words come to mind: radioactive and bare. James’ desire lay in one place, yet everywhere in between, stripped to the bare minimum of cloth and exposed. In a sense, this liaison connecting wilderness and vulnerability could be interpreted as loneliness, if he were unaccompanied; yet another heartbeat rumbles in the distance and it pulses, shifting the clouds—spreading dandelion fluff—rocking the waves gently—skin to skin contact is more than James could ever ask for and all he’s ever wanted. Likewise, Damon is steadily intensifying the wilderness within and he is conclusively manifesting.

    Summary

    Kylo had everything planned. It was a quick hit: they’d be in and out, within a matter of minutes– take the money and run. It was simple. It was brutal. It was a solution.

    But this is the 30s, a decade of consumption, inflation and depression. Kylo had everything planned, and the money still slid right through his grasp. No cash, no jewels, no car, no partner.

    All he got was an impeccably-dressed ginger, unceremoniously restrained by a rope fashioned from knotted factory ties, slumped over on the floor of his dingy two-room apartment.

    "Stand still, Godfrey. It'll all be over in a minute." With those words, one of the more improbable couplings to have formed within Park Avenue's gossamer bubble was born.
