    Summary

    In 1920s San Francisco, Overwatch has fallen, and the police have their hands full with the gang that's taken its place. Jesse McCree would prefer his ties to said gang left in the dirt where they belong, spending his days serving illegal alcohol in peace, but that becomes significantly harder when a newcomer sees fit to drag up his past. Old faces become fresh, memories become present reality, and Hanzo Shimada is not what he seems.

    Summary

    Welcome to Los Angeles 1926, the peak of the Roaring Twenties!

    Wealthy adopted brothers, Bucky Barnes and Steve Rogers, return home to the Stark Manor after graduating from boarding school. They, and their hoard of friends, have three months of absolute freedom before beginning their freshmen year of college. In an era dominated by the Jazz Age, Prohibition, flappers, speakeasies, automobiles, cinema, radio, gangster crime, and sexual liberation, it only gets better for Bucky and Steve when they entangle themselves in illicit affairs with the two newest foreign housemaids: Wanda Maximoff and Natasha Romanoff.

    Inspired by Titanic, Downton Abbey, The Great Gatsby, West Side Story, and several Mexican telenovelas about social class divisions.

    Titled after the popular 1926 song I'm Sitting on Top of the World sung by Al Jolson.

    Summary

    Summary

    Like all good romance, it starts in the speakeasy.

    The mob boss's protégé, Victor Nikiforov runs an illegal juice joint and lives to forget. He runs through Chicago, chased by the French battlefields he once bled in, drinking until the sun rises and getting lost in jazz numbers. Engaging in an ill-fated romance with Yuuri Katsuki, a rival gang member and press informant, is just one of many bad decisions on his part. Falling in love means splitting their priorities, caught between protecting the ones they love and escaping their pasts.

    Rival gangs move closer to the boiling point of a new urban war. The Roaring Twenties open their black maw and threaten to swallow both of them whole—the antebellum is just the beginning.

    A storm is brewing in Chicago tonight.

    Summary

    Theseus has this unnerving ability to look absolutely innocent even after all this time: as if he truly believes that ‘one drink’ nonsense, as if those words don't carry the guaranteed future of a hideous hangover, hideous memories, and hideous attempts to look co-workers in the eye the next day.

    Summary

    It's a brave new world; top dollar scientists are working on space travel, aliens and humans walk together on the same streets, and suddenly all those cartoons in the funny papers seem like a real possibility.
    But humanity hasn't quite touched the stars yet, and though aliens may be on planet Earth, they don't intend on helping with that. A brave new world it may be, but bad people, human or otherwise, will always rise up and try to control things, whether by manipulation or brutal violence.
    Lieutenant Shepard, of the 104th precinct, is going to stop them.

    Summary

    What do you say to the beautiful red haired woman who saved your life? What do you say to the man who ruined it? What do you say to yourself when you're falling apart? Nothing, nothing, nothing.

    How about this? What do you say to the love of your life?

    "I. Hate. You." Because she did. But that doesn't mean she doesn't love her. Doesn't it? Can you love and hate someone at the same time? She had no choice but to find out.

    Summary

    The resets keep happening, but Papyrus is gone. Nearly six years of grief have warped Sans, causing him to risk his soul with self-destructive behavior and making him all but unrecognizable to his old friends. Any day now, he expects a reset that will bring him far enough back in time to reunite with his brother and erase his sins. In the meantime, he'll distract himself with Muffet's new call girl...

    You need a lot of money, right now. Unlike the majority of humans in the slums of New Ebott, you don't have any anti-monster prejudice, and you're kinky, submissive and enjoy sex. You've heard someone like you can do very well for herself, catering to monsters. Now here you are with your first client, a skeleton monster in a suit offering you a drink from a hip flask...

    Undertale gangster AU with a 1930s-era American aesthetic, essentially because I like the clothes. Status updates and story chatter at http://neroli9.tumblr.com.

    Summary

    Yuuri lives and breathes (rather quickly, in fact) for the speakeasy in the basement of his home and ballet studio. Each night, a new clandestine experience filled with booze and dimmed by the warmth of oil lamps; he only truly feels alive singing and dancing, performing until all that's left of him is the glistening of sweat on his exposed sternum and the string of pearls swinging down his torso.

    Victor is running from his past. He's somehow escaped from the danger of the gulags and landed himself smack in the middle of a gang war within the Italian Mafia in New York City. If asked how he ended up in a small speakeasy underneath a ballet studio, he doesn't quite know the answer; he does know that a certain enchantress performer has stolen his heart in one night, and Victor plans on earning his in return.
