    Summary

    From as far back as he could remember, it was the fondest wish of Credence Barebone to have a friend. Someone in the world to whom he could turn when life was cruel, as it so often was. Someone in the world who cared for him, and someone who would let him care for them back.

    But sometimes... to have someone even more than a friend... he thought that might be nice, too.

    Summary

    The year is 1941. War rages across the Atlantic, but at home the warmly lit dance halls are a stark contrast to the cold, fearful blackouts taking place across Europe. It’s in one such dance hall that jazz pianist Soul Evans meets hepcat Maka Albarn, and the two share a whirlwind romance just months before the United States gets pulled into the deadliest conflict in world history. Neither of them will make it out of the war unscathed, but they might just make it out together.

    Summary

    France, 1794.

    Connor, following an attack on the Homestead by Templar forces, has travelled to England in order to retrieve the letters exchanged between Haytham and his half-sister Jennifer in the hope to forge peace between the Assassins and Templars in America. His hunt leads him to France, and consequentially to the Pieces of Eden uncovered by Arno Dorian, and the race for possession they have started.

    Arno, still reeling from the death of Élise, has returned to Paris a broken man and searching for a way to re-enter the Brotherhood. He’s determined to find the answers to his questions concerning the Apple and the Sword, and to uncover the identity of the name he pulled from Philippe Rose’s memories: the mysterious Lady Eve.

    Yet the activity is stirring up the dust, and interest, of Shay Cormac. Upon learning that two powerful Pieces of Eden have been found in France, he vows to lay his hands on them before the Assassins can do harm.

    Or basically, a story about some bloody closure on these guys after Ubisoft left them hanging.

    Summary

    On the Fourth of July, 1901, the biggest bonfire in the history of the United States was lit from the summit of Pikes Peak, the tallest mountain in Colorado. The blaze could be seen in neighboring states, and lots of people assumed that the mountain had just been a dormant volcano all that time. (This part is true.)

    On the third of July, 1901, Jyn Erso wakes up to the sound of her old friend Bodhi throwing rocks at her window. He and his weird friends need her help. (This part is not true.)

    Summary

    It's a little known fact that the Mafia and the law don't exactly go together, so when Bryce's job as a lawyer ends up dropping a case on him that's a little more trouble than he wanted, he expects his life to end very soon. He doesn't need help (okay, maybe just a little), but does Ryan, a member of the exact same Mafia Bryce is working against, see that? Not really.

    Love is the last thing on Bryce's mind, but he still finds himself stumbling into it. Or maybe he's mistaking trouble for love. That must be it. Love can't be this stressful, can it? Oh, well, in this day and age, what's a fella to do?

    Summary

    “I’ve always been lucky with one-eyed Jacks,” Faraday smirked and flung the dynamite at their terrified, panicked faces. Lady Luck grinned down at the men and held Faraday in her hands as the lit fuse reached the tube of explosive.

    All faded as the boom of the dynamite shoved him backwards and into the darkness that had crept into the edges of his vision.

    Summary

    It's 1988 and Melinda's family has moved to small town Wisconsin during her senior year of high school. Not exactly exciting. But maybe the guy who had showed her around on her first day wasn't so bad.

    Phil fell for the new girl, it was like a John Hughes movie. But you know, less creepy undertones.

    Summary

    It is what it sounds like! Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes screwing across decades! All of these will be fairly short and set in the same timeline/universe, but because I have a penchant for 1930s Brooklyn, most of these will be retro-Stucky . Porn, though!

    But I wish I was dead, dead like you." --Lana Del Rey, "Dark Paradise"

    Or, what do you do when both your soul mates are gone?

    Summary

    Goodnight has only been traveling with Billy Rocks for six months when they have a close call that's a little too close for comfort. After that, Goody just wants to make sure Billy knows knows how much what they share is worth to him, that he'd do anything for him, with him. Of course, even with all Goody's flowery words, getting that message across to Billy is a bit more difficult than it should be.

    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.
