    Summary

    The year is 1933, the United States is stricken with a seemingly endless depression. The stock market's crash affects every aspect of daily life. Billions of dollars have been lost, countless hardworking Americans have been laid off and contaminated with extreme poverty. Many people live from paycheck to paycheck, unable to provide necessities for themselves and their families.

    Spending money on entertainment is out of the question for most. So a very inexpensive media outlet arose: Radio. Some programs gained large and loyal followings, while others struggled to gain traction considering the immense numbers of competitive shows.

    Arin Hanson has built a small but respectable show with his co-host Jon. But when Jon leaves the program it's up to Arin to save his life's work from tanking.

    Summary

    "Years ago, when the circus first rolled into town Katsuki heard his first cannon fire. More importantly, he felt it. The distant quake shook him to his core, beckoned him. He sacrificed a dollar that week to get a front row seat, every night, to laugh and scream as the cannon rolled out to herald the start of the greatest show on earth.
    The next summer, the circus never came.
    It's been six years, but now, it's back."

    Welcome, welcome, one and all to the My Hero circus AU no one asked for, but for some reason I had to write. (Kiribaku-centric)

    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 and grapples with the fact that 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

    "There's no one left to hear you scream. No one left for you."

    This story describes the significant moments in Oliver Thredson's life which led to the rise of Bloody Face, beginning with his birth and early childhood through the Second World War then ending with his descent into darkness as he retraces his roots.

    The inspiration behind this comes from the brilliant song 'Man That You Fear' by my favourite artist Marilyn Manson! I've quoted the lyrics at the beginning of each chapter since it brings the story together nicely.

    I don't own AHS or Oliver Thredson, which is a shame. I don't own the song either, which is even more of a shame.

    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

    George Luz’s earliest recollection is of him sitting at the table as his grandmother prepares the chouriço for lunch.
    The memory is overshadowed by the haze of time and by morning sunlight filtering through the windows, but if he closes his eyes, he can still smell the fresh ground pepper and meat from the bowl on the table, his grandmother's rose perfume, the frayed patches on the blue curtains. He hears the drip drip of the coffee in its pot.
    She explained how to make chouriço that day - what to say to warm the onions exactly right, charms to keep the ingredients from freezing during the winter.

    There is nothing George wouldn't give to be home.
    He just wants to be home.

    Summary

    I wanted to play with the power dynamics of Stannis and Davos. The setting is the mid-1930s during the Great Depression in America. The stock market collapse of the late 20s caused rich men like Stannis to lose everything, and some of them had to start over and perhaps settle for working for blue collar men like Davos. In this AU, Stannis and Davos both enjoy that power swap more than they expected.
