    Summary

    The Sons called themselves a social club, a fraternity, a secret society. They were a gang. They got away with the deception because they didn’t fit your typical image of a gang. In 1977, that word conjured up images of Hell’s Angels or poor kids from a bad neighborhood a la the Jets and the Sharks or S. E. Hinton’s Outsiders; thugs who wore dirty denim and leather proudly emblazoned with the name of their organization; boys who came across so tough you crossed the street to avoid crossing paths. On the contrary, the Sons weren’t from one neighborhood or even one school. They weren’t the outcasts, they were the rock stars. From outward appearances they were polite, upper middle class, intelligent young men who had successfully navigated the horrors of high school and adolescence. Every guy wanted to be one, every girl wanted to date one. It was how they lured you in. Waxer was in.

    Summary

    Edward and Henry Jekyll are as close as twin brothers can be, despite very different upbringings and treatment from their parents. At least, until Henry returns home one day to discover Edward to have disappeared. Frantic, he begins to search for his brother, but starts to get the feeling that Edward simply does not want to be found...
    Edward, meanwhile, has never been more nervous, or excited, to have finally gotten out of the home he owes nothing to. Though sad to leave his brother behind, he vows to leave the Jekyll family behind him and become one with the streets of London. He has to get there, first, though.

    Summary

    It started with running: with wind in their hair, feet falling heavy on the pavement, and Jack’s hand wrapped around his wrist.

     

    It started with talking: laughter, a bottle of wine, and Kath's fingertips dancing over her knee.

    Summary

    After the War, invalided ex-RAF pilot Robert Sugden moved into Hadleigh Manor Gatehouse, part of his payment for agreeing to divorce his wealthy wife. It meant he could provide a discrete home for himself and Aaron Dingle, the young man billeted at the Manor who he had fallen for (and who had fallen for him). To the World, Aaron was his driver and handyman. That was the way it had to be. But to the people who knew them and cared about them the most, they knew they were together.

    This is a companion piece to my story Love on the Home Front. It will be a series of occasional one-offs to fill in some of the gaps between 1945 and the 1953 Epilogue in that story. My 1940s take on Robron is a romantic work and a million miles away from current ED.

    Chapter 32 added 13 September 2017 - "Happy times, dark times"
    Chapter 33 added 21 September 2017 - "Moving Forward, Standing Still (Part One)"

    Summary

    The first part of a roleplay we have been doing for a few years (still in progress, this is a very small fraction of what we’ve already written, and there is much much more coming in the future. Forgive our awkwardness, we’re new at this). Following the plot of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (borrowing also from Marvel comics, real-life historic events, and changes for the sake of story). Written in paragraph roleplay format, so perspective switches between Steve and Bucky.

    This part takes place before the events of Captain America: The First Avenger. Bucky’s starting to suspect that his feelings for Steve are more than friendly, but he doesn’t have time to dwell on it because he’s being shipped out. Steve is kind of oblivious but has strong feelings toward his best friend. They feel pressured to lead the typical American Dream lives, and they each think that’s what the other wants.

    Future chapters will go through all of the movies that include Captain America and will involve all of the characters he interacts with. Tags will be added as the story progresses.

    Summary

    “What is the music?” Steve asks.
     
    “That? Oh, just the warp and weft of Creation as it births itself, moment by moment,” the pale man says, cocks his head at Steve and smiles a crooked little half-smile, and—
     
    “Teach me,” Steve says, and the man grins.

     

    An urban historical fantasy AU in which Steve Rogers' Da is an immortal sorcerer from another world. This changes some things some things a Hell of a lot, and some things not at all.

    Or: sorcery, sex, soldiering, spy craft and shapeshifting.

    Summary

    Victor steps onto the gangway behind his mother and father, letting his ears fall deaf to their idle Russian chatter, and looks up at the ship, basking in her shadow. As his feet touch soft, velvet-red carpet, he tries very hard not to feel like the Titanic is his prison ship; dragging him to America, to his perfectly-planned future in chains, kicking and screaming with every last inch of his dying will.
     
    Yuuri and Victor board the Titanic having never crossed paths—Yuuri had won his tickets in a last-minute game of cards, Victor had boarded as the first-class son of a business tycoon, destined to inherit his father's millions. The last thing they expect is to be caught up in each others' lives, and to become desperately entangled in a love affair that threatens to ruin them both.

    Summary

    Sequel to Hammer to Fall and I want to Break Free, completing the story.

    Peter and Patrick meet up for one last day before the end of their holidays. There's sex, another embarrassing encounter with the chemist, and what would have to be called BDSM if it happened to be safe, sane, and consensual. Between these two? One out of three would be an achievement.

    And theological debate and lots of 80s music references.
