    – Это чертовски одинокая жизнь – на дороге от ранчо к ранчо. Вдалеке от любой родной души. Ничего постыдного в том… чтобы желать немного человеческого тепла, Себастиан.
    И правда. Один раз выйдешь на дорогу, так рутина – это все, что у тебя останется.

    Summary

    There's no sense in being nervous. The more his body tenses up, the more this could hurt.

    He sends his mind back to the last time Steve touched him like this...a few nights ago, under their tarp, his fingers strong and gentle and so, so good, gently working Bucky open and twisting inside of him, his kisses muffling Bucky's groans.

    Yes, that's what he's going to think about tonight. That's what he's going to see in his head, as he lets a stranger fuck him in the back seat of an automobile, or up against an alley wall. And there's no point in stalling here now.

    He sets off for the docks, where the men go to be with other men.

    It's not right, God no, it isn't fair, but money is the only thing that can pay hospital bills, or keep a sick boy out of the winter streets. Money is the fire that will keep Steve's sick body warm.

    And Bucky has no kindling but himself.

    Summary

    "Well I'm stuck here," Bucky says, indicating his crutches. "And everyone else is either gone or busy. You could...if you could stay for a couple hours until my folks get back, I'll pay you for your time. I got an allowance. Ten bucks a week."

    Steve's jaw nearly drops onto the ground before he recovers. "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..."

    Summary

    It's the 1930's, and the Great Depression is in full swing. Thomas Müller can't find a job, and is forced to leave his family behind out of shame, because a man without a job is equivalent to a man without masculinity A.K.A. a woman. On the streets, he is forced to become a prostitute, and he believes his life is the worst, up until one client makes him believe otherwise...

    Summary

    During the 1930's and 1940's, social expectations between men and women were rather strict, even amidst the Depression and early news about the impending war. When a skinny boy popped into your life in 1938, you never expected where you would soon be heading.

    Alternatively: a self-indulgent fic of Bucky and the reader, and a lot of spankings, before and during WWII. There is also a lot of pre-serum Steve.

    Summary

    ╾━╤デ╦︻

    "This lissom blonde will entertain men as told, albeit with little evidence of ᗪᕮᔕIᖇᕮ or ᔕᕮ᙭ᑌᗩᒪ interest. In fact, there is hardly any evidence that she processes strong emotions at all ― yet she has the uncanny power to make men think their hearts are madly in love with her mind, soul, and body. To be easily ᗪIᔕTᖇᗩᑕTᕮᗪ by this woman is to distract yourself from saving your own life."

    But is Westergaard's courtesan a coy victim or a carnivorous villain?

    In an era reigned by mafias, gamblers, Nazis, blondes, whorehouses, and burlesque dancers, a smutty thief attempts to pick both of their locks. Hers should've been left alone, though. Along with those sparkly sapphires, that disturbing diary, and the Holy Grail between her legs.

    Summary

    This is the diary of Joanna Winchester, age 10, in Normal, Illinois, who lived during the Great Depression. This diary is fictional, and any resemblance between a character and a real person, dead or alive, is purely coincidental.

    Summary

    (The Mafia/ Bootleg AU that no one had written to my satisfaction, so I have to do it myself.)

    A multi-faceted battle is going on in the underground of the Big Apple. The Iron Family is stirring up trouble where trouble don't belong. The Hydra Gang is a developing cancer in the rise of Hitler. And the Brooklyn Boys just tryn' to get by in the midst of the depression.

    Out side all that, Tony Stark and Steve Rogers think they have found the love of their life (or as close as you can get in the homophobic society of 1934). Thing is, they don't know that one is a small time mob boss out for vengeance, and the other is a gang leader makin' profit off bathtub gin.

    Summary

    "All Bucky Barnes wanted to do was get groceries. Maybe stop by to visit the elderly lady living in the run-down building next to his and Steve's. It wasn’t in his itinerary to defend his roommate from the forces of evil yet again."

    Loosely based off the prompt, "You give me a piggyback ride after I get out of a brutal fight and can't stand."

    Summary

    I entered this three years ago in a short writing contest for Penguin. Lucky for me i actually entered it an hour later because i'm just so good at planning.

    We were to write a short (~5,000 words) story that took place in a time in history, so i chose the Great Depression, and it had to include or make reference to a real historical figure, of which i chose Bonnie and Clyde ('cause why not?).
