    Summary

    “To our last night on Earth.” Dean shouted as he raised his glass. A chorus of voices echoed his and silence quickly fell as the soldiers gulped down their drinks. Last night on Earth. The thought pounded itself into Dean Winchester’s head. They had spent nearly two months in basic training and it all added up to this.

    Summary

    Alternate Universe, Prohibition era.
    New York City, 1923. After Joffrey Baratheon breaks their engagement, Sansa Stark ends up in Petyr Baelish's brothel, where she works as a dancer. She soon realizes her customers die one after the other...

    "You don't want me to dance, you say you're not here to spy on me, so why did you come?" she asked the Hound again.
    Sansa's high-pitched voice revealed her exasperation; he looked straight in her eyes and, forgetting about the chocolates, he leaned forward so that his head was at arm's length of her knees.
    "I'm your way out, girl."
    He had uttered these words in such a way it sounded like a threat.

    Summary

    It's the mid 1980s, and aging soap opera, As the Starlight Fades, needs a shot of adrenaline. Perhaps a new Super Couple can bring the show back to life? Set in the era when daytime dramas reigned supreme, the characters wore Armani, everyone over the age of fifty was evil, and the scent of aerosol hairspray hung in the air. And don't forget to turn up the Kenny G.

    Summary

    War.

    Everything every person hopes to avoid. For it is in war that every structure is ruined; where every soul is corrupted, and where blood seeps through the fertile land. War destroys everything.

    Summary

    Fem!Barnes--Jane Austen Barnes--and Steve Rogers

     
    I wanted to write a female version of Bucky because I was honestly interested in how gender would have affected the character of Bucky Barnes. In the 40s, Jane Barnes would have had a really REALLY different experience than Bucky would have. At least socially--the expectations put on her as a young female raised an Italian-Irish Catholic.

    The war experience is different because she would not have been allowed to be involved in direct combat. But Zola and company--were looking for strong wills, not only strong bodies. Among all these men--it's obvious that some of this violence is directed at her only because she's a woman. That's just a fact of life for most women.

    There really is no difference between Bucky and Janie as the Winter Soldier because the Winter Soldier is a tool, a thing. I don't really imagine their emotional reactions being all that different either.

    I don't like the idea of 'feminizing' a character or 'masculinizing' for that matter. I want Jane to have her own experience and identity but still be recognizable as an alternate!Bucky.

    Summary

    Sequel to The Guilded Age. Won't make a lot of sense without reading that first.

      In which: time has passed, children have grown, new points of view are seen, the focus shifts, an old sailor finds love, sins of the past are revealed, everything is connected, nothing is what it seems and our authoresses completely rewrite WWI.


    Part the First

    Then, if you love me, let me sail
    While a vessel dares the deep;
    For the ship’s wife, and the breath of life
    Are the raging gales that sweep;
    And when I’m done with the calm and blast,
    A slide o’er the side, and rest at last.
    -Paul Laurence Dunbar

    Summary

    Sherlock Holmes is a prince, next in line for the human throne, in a world full of fairy tales and nightmares, where the land is divided up into kingdoms based on species. No one expects him to show a trait that has eluded his family for centuries, one that would get him knocked out of running for the throne of the Human Kingdom – the trait of magic. But with Sherlock being so close to either taking the throne or being sent away to the Magic Kingdom to become adept at what he's clearly not, they are starting to grasp at straws to keep their son with them. That was when they stumbled upon the least likely of people to ever step foot in the castle: John Watson, former knight and skinwalker.
    Now, with Sherlock's fate in John's hands, and a war brewing in the north, these two young men must put their trust, and maybe their hearts, in each other's hands.

    Summary

    World War II AU where Ian and Mickey meet at Camp Taccoma, training to be paratroopers. I'm borrowing pretty heavily from Band of Brothers which is why the boys are in Easy Company. I could not get the idea out of my head of Mickey being a combat medic.
