    Summary

    AU: Tony Carbonell is an omega, a social butterfly (just as his late mother would have wanted) and a mechanic whose genius is becoming the talk of New York’s luxury car circuit. He’s also completely in love with a man called Luke Vargrson (who is refreshingly unlike any alpha he’s ever met); yep, life couldn’t be too much sweeter for the freshly turned twenty-five year old...

    Until he learned that the guy he was so desperate to marry was not only an alien Prince but the leader of an interstellar crime syndicate known and feared across Earth as The Chitauri...

    Or

    Nick Fury is a dick and his super-secret boy-band of super-heroes need to work on their public relations skills; who the fuck is Howard Stark, anyway, and why won’t he quit staring?

    Summary

    The world got to them before they had a chance to grow tough. They were strong, but they were free, untempered, unfocused, undisciplined, unknowing, oblivious.
    Not yet jaded. Not yet broken.
    Strong, but not wise, and ready for what they could be, if not ready for what they would face.

    When 19-year-old Sherlock goes down to London in 1865, all she wants to do is find her brother and go home, back to the sun, back to light and spinning and Paris and sense. Instead, she gets herself killed. Four times.

    A Sherlock Holmes / Fallen London crossover.

    Summary

    In 1945, Captain America was Killed in Action.

    ...in 1960, James Montgomery Falsworth wrote a book.

    "How odd it was, the Soldier thought, that Man should have such notions. That there must only be Man or Woman, Lover or Beloved, that one must be active, aggressor, that the other be passive, servile. In Love, as in all things, one gave equally of each other to become one Heart, one Flesh, one Soul. The Captain and the Boy became One, and it was Good, and they were Glad.

    Perhaps, the Poet said, perhaps Man is wrong. Perhaps there was never truly Love until this. The Strongman said nothing. Perhaps he disagreed. But the Boy and the Captain continued to kiss, and they were naked, and unashamed."

    —Falsworth, J. Montgomery: Jacob (I Have Loved) . London: Penguin, 1960. Print.

    Summary

    When men scoff at seventeen-year-old Jemma Simmons for wanting to enter the science fair at her high-class summer resort, she refuses to be pushed aside. Fellow teen and resident gadget guy Leo Fitz isn't allowed to participate because he's resort staff, so she suggests they team up. She could use a partner, and he could use her status - as long as they can keep it a secret until the day of the contest.

    And maybe it's just the summer air, but the longer they work together, the more it seems like there's something else heating up between them.

    A Dirty Dancing AU.

    Summary

    "Succession" is a script for an historical costume drama about central Europe in the mid-18th-century. It takes a certain degree of inspiration from 'The Tudors' and 'The Borgias', and while it aims to be a bit more historically accurate than either of them, it's also not completely wedded to historical precision. A major objective is to have a more inclusive and diverse cast than is common for such dramas; this was an era with many powerful women, and this show aims to give them proper prominence. Similarly, non-white and non-straight characters should have good representation. Every scene should have a speaking role for a named person who really existed and who is not a straight white man; every episode should pass the Bechdel Test. There's also a little 'Game of Thrones' about the whole thing - anyone can die.
