    Summary

    Mettaton was once a famous performer that everyone adored. He was once an incredible machine, a technological advancement ahead of his time. He started as an incorporeal ghost, but then was given a futuristic robotic body with an appearance beyond his wildest dreams. But with technology so new, so advanced, there was the inevitable reality that something would go wrong. And it did. He went insane, and has now become one of the most dangerous mob bosses in Ebott City. All the other mobs want him dead. And two monster mobs are working together to hunt him down until he is.

    However, that’s not the only problem he’s faced with. He currently owes a powerful human mobster a debt. And it’s a debt he can’t afford.

    But he won't go down without a fight and without some clever leverage. And that leverage? It comes in the form of a charming young sniper.

    Summary

    Matt couldn’t see any of the singers at Alexandra’s, but he fancied he could get a sense of what they looked like from the way they sang. In fact, from his place at the piano just below them, he figured he might know them better while they were singing than anyone else did.

    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

    Everything changed by 1920.

    War was no longer romantic, booze was no longer legal, and horses... horses didn't hold the same sort of usefulness as a locomotive or a Model T. Modernism had rendered entire lifestyles impotent.

    But Alex Danvers knew horses. Knew them well enough to carve a life out tending to them. So the call to the Steel Pier in Atlantic City doesn't exactly take her by surprise. But the flying horses, and the star that rides them?

    Well... Alex Danvers never planned on her.

    Summary

    Lieutenant Daniel Law is an agent for the Bureau of Prohibition. When he begins investigating a speakeasy called the Libra Lounge, he gets way more than he bargained for in a variety of ways, in the form of one frustratingly tempting lounge singer named Steven A. Starphase, a rookie crime reporter with an odd gift by the name of Leonardo Watch, and the mysterious Boss of the Libra Lounge that he can't seem to pin down.

    Basically, welcome to Prohibition and the Jazz Age in Hellsalem's Lot. It's like regular Prohibition-era New York with more booze, monsters, and strange happenings than you can shake a stick at.

    Summary

    Alternate Universe, Prohibition era.
    New York City, 1923. After Joffrey Baratheon breaks their engagement, Sansa Stark ends up in Petyr Baelish's brothel, where she works as a dancer. She soon realizes her customers die one after the other...

    "You don't want me to dance, you say you're not here to spy on me, so why did you come?" she asked the Hound again.
    Sansa's high-pitched voice revealed her exasperation; he looked straight in her eyes and, forgetting about the chocolates, he leaned forward so that his head was at arm's length of her knees.
    "I'm your way out, girl."
    He had uttered these words in such a way it sounded like a threat.

    Summary

    A speakeasy, also called a blind pig or blind tiger, is an illicit establishment that sells alcoholic beverages. Such establishments came into prominence in the United States during the Prohibition era (1920–1933, longer in some states). Due to the nature of one of the NYPD's biggest cases in the steam powered year of 1925, detective Lena Oxton thought it more appropriate to call any speakeasy that popped up around the city a blind spider, instead.

    After all, under the alias of Widowmaker, someone has opened over 57 speakeasy's all over New York in less than a year...And demolished all evidence of them the very night they hit the scene.
