    Summary

    If you asked most people of Daniel J. Howell’s lot in life, they’d tell you it was pretty good. A small career writing for a fashionable magazine, the heir to one of New York’s most prestigious hotels, the convenience of youth and an ailing millionaire father… what more could an 18-year-old ask for?

    So when a night at the symphony turns into the start of a whole new double life in the city’s queer underworld, the heir to New York’s most fashionable hotel will have to learn what is what when you're dating a cabaret singer, and who is who when that singer becomes a troubled star.

    So it’s nothing but fate to blame when things start to fall apart. The catch? It’s the last half of the 1920s–

    And this romance is illegal.

    Summary

    Lord Alfred Paget and Mr. Edward Drummond have been stubbornly avoiding each other the last few days. But when Alfred writes a letter to his Edward, there is nothing - not even an attempted assassination on the Prime Minister - that will stop Edward from making the engagement. Oysters and champagne can lead to quite a time...

    This will be an ongoing fic, fixing that tragic episode and adding more, onwards and upwards for poor Alfred and Edward! <3

    Doubt thou the stars are fire;
    Doubt that the sun doth move;
    Doubt truth to be a liar;
    But never doubt I love.

    Summary

    When Will opened his eyes, terror overwhelmed him for a moment. Shaking and shuddering as he was it took him a while to calm down again, trying to keep any shrieks or sobs from escaping his mouth. Only then did he dare to look. It was still dark, and the house lay silent in the night.


    It's the middle of February, and Will still can't sleep.
    (It's been three months, and El is still gone)

    Summary

    Everyone liked Raoul of Goldenlake. Teachers, nobles, his fellow pages and the nights that passed through the castle were all won over by the young man's friendly demeanor and easy smile. Raoul could soften up the toughest old nobles and win over anyone. And that, of course, was what Raoul wanted. He learned at a young age that he would fare better if everyone liked him. Goldenlake was on the border of Tortall, and a rough and tumble place where even Raoul's stature did not prevent him from being a target. Instead of endlessly proving himself through fights, Raoul found it was faster and easier to make sure that everyone, from servants to his fellow nobles, liked him.

    Especially since the goodwill he enjoyed helped him keep people at arm's length, if he had to.

    When Raoul left Goldenlake to begin his page training at the palace, he thought that the hard work and change of scenery would be enough for him to shut down the thoughts he had about other boys.

    --

    Or: Raoul is gay and I wrote a lot about it

    Summary

    Richie wondered what it was this time, what made them stop Eddie. Their bikes were lying abandoned a few paces away, like they had seen Eddie walking and, perhaps after following him for a while, decided to hop off when he was close enough to catch.
    Richie guessed it didn’t matter. All that mattered now was that his best friend was about to get beat up on pretty bad, and he couldn’t just wait there and let it happen.

    Summary

    I'm setting this story in the Fascist Dystopia that I know best, which is Sinclair Lewis' prescient book, It Can't Happen Here. If I do this thing right, I'll add in enough details that you don't need to have read the book to understand the story.

    Basically, the story is this: A Fascist gets elected as President of the US. One of his associates knows of Tony's homosexuality and alcoholism, and uses those to pressure him to work for the Administration. While in Washington, Tony meets Loki. Loki is a trans-character (although in the context of the time this story takes place, it's not completely understood that way). She's working as a sex-worker, victimized by members of the Fascist government. Tony takes her away from that, and gives her a new life as his partner. They take in an orphan, Peter Parker, and make a family for themselves.

    Tony finally manages to escape himself. In exile in Mexico, he tells the story of his past, and nerves himself to go back and rescue his family.

    Summary

    Sammy Lawrence’s whole life seemed like a futile struggle against one tragedy after another. After every rise, there came an inevitable fall. And yet, life persists. Through the death of his father, through the worst years of the Depression, through the decline of Sillyvision Studios, and even, impossibly, through the decades of hell where all he knew was darkness and suffering. When the ink finally came pouring off his skin and the voices of the damned quieted inside his skull, Sammy found himself a shattered, hollow shell of a man.

    Thankfully, Henry is there to help him pick up the pieces and put him back together again. Though Henry isn’t without his own traumas, and recovery is never an easy process.
