    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. 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.

    Summary

    "They wrote in the old days that it is sweet and fitting to die for one's country. But in modern war, there is nothing sweet nor fitting in your dying. You will die like a dog for no good reason."

    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: The first piece of Bucky Barnes that returned was, in all honestly.

    His cock.

    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.

    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.
