    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

    After suffering tragedy, Peggy is on a lonely multi-state crime spree.

    Lonely, until she meets a waitress in a nowhere-diner who can see right through the hurt. Someone who might understand her. Someone fiery. Someone who knows what she needs. Someone who might make a good partner - in both senses of the term.

    Six out of seven chapters are complete and my June writing goal is the Plus One. Also on the lookout for anyone interested in a beta read on later chapters.

    Summary

    She wants him to do that? Here, right now, in front of Steve?

    "Show him," she says in this kind of breathy way. Bucky leans over her and braces an arm on the couch near her head and he leans in and kisses her nice and deep and long, but not hard. Edna deserves to be treated nice. Bucky shifts back and circles his hands light around her knees, then down her legs to the top of her knickers, and he tugs lightly and she lifts her hips, and he takes them off slowly, one leg at a time. He loves doing this. There's no reason to rush.

    Loki doesn't know what has befallen the Avengers after Ultron rebelled against them. He doesn't know that the heroe's Heasquarters and everyone living in them are in a great danger. He doesn't know that the Man of Iron blames himself for everything that has happened.

    But when Tony Stark, the most prideful and stubborn of all the Avengers, turns to him for advice, he doesn't really mind the reasons behind it.
