    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

    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.

    Summary

    "Stand still, Godfrey. It'll all be over in a minute." Thus began one of the more improbable couplings to have formed within Park Avenue society's gossamer bubble. But if the plan of a certain daffy young socialite to catch a certain Harvard man-turned-vagrant-turned-butler extraordinaire must be deemed a success, one question remains: What happened after that minute?

    Summary

    “Oh, honey,” she had said, expression soft and sad. “Steve is a sweet boy, but…”

    You had frowned. “But what?” you echoed.

    Your older sister was far less delicate than your mother. “He’s sickly,” she filled in, bouncing her infant against her chest as she walked, trying to calm the fussing baby. “Liable to make you a widow before you’re even a bride.”

    Summary

    “But you still want my life story.” Credence says, too close to curiosity for Graves’ liking. He prefers accusation.

    “You keep that sort of thing tucked in your back pocket, Barebone.” He leans forward to tuck his cigarette behind the kid’s ear. “Whoever you were? You leave that person behind.”

    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.

    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.
