    Summary

    "Stubborn, stupid and sweet Steve Rogers did not back down, even when the odds were clearly stacked against him. No matter how many there were, or how big or dangerous, he failed to keep his dumb mouth shut whenever some other punk did something stupid, and it often ended in alleyway brawls and bloodied noses."

    When passionate, stubborn, wilful Steve Rogers starts becoming withdrawn, the people around him worry. Bucky is particularly concerned.

    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

    AU. Post-FMA03, in the universe of CoS.
    On her deathbed after the final confrontation between Edward and Dante, Rose Thomas gives up her son to Ed to take with him to the other side of the gate. Her son being the gateway between the two worlds, it is for the greater good that he lives on the other side, where alchemy does not work, so the array embedded inside him may never be activated again. Fifteen years later, Edward and his ward, young Rudy Thomas, live in Munich, Germany, in the midst of a brewing war and a place growing more and more dangerous for them by the second. After they are struck by tragedy, a sequence of baffling events leaves them in Amestris once more.
    Meanwhile, not all is well in the newly-established Amestrian democracy. Elicia Hughes, alchemy student and detective protegee, finds herself entangled in a convoluted plot with the homunculi-and, by extension, her father's death-at the center of it. By some stroke of luck, she is accompanied by Rudy and the homeless outcast and half-homunculus Selim Bradley, and they work together to finally understand who really is the puppetmaster behind the atrocities that threaten everything they hold dear.

    Summary

    In June 1952, Father Patrick Stump is involved in a scandal so great that the Diocese of Chicago has no choice but to send him away in disgrace. He finds himself in the town of Clark, Mississippi, a town not known for its tolerance of anything other than the All American Dream.

    Pete never wanted to make the move to Clark but found himself forced by lack of opportunities and the death of his father during the war. Out of work and close to out of hope, he stumbles across a card in the general store, neither he, not the writer of the card aware that what follows will alter the course of their lives irrevocably.

    But the smallest towns often have the darkest secrets...

    Dark, angsty angst-fest, my friends, with huge heaping helpings of Catholic guilt.

    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.
