    Summary

    "Who is he?" I demanded. "Do you know?"
    "He's just a man named Gatsby"

     

    Lovino, seeking an escape from the difficulties left at home by his brother and the rest of Europe, gets himself a one way ticket to America where he meets the excitable personification, Alfred. Alfred spares no expense at showing him the true life New York City has to offer, and, at the center of its splendor, there seems to be a man named Gatsby. It seems like the party will never stop for the duo, but in reality all good things must come to an end.

    Summary

    "Shut up, you're perfect," Lydia said, and pressed her lips to the space between Cora's breasts. "I won't allow anyone to insult my mate like that."

     

    Cora pulled her close, kissing her hair so Lydia wouldn't see her expression. Lydia threw the word around like she didn't know what it meant sometimes. Mates got married and had children. They didn't meet in secret in a dirty speakeasy, to fuck before someone noticed they were gone. Some rich boy would marry Lydia eventually and she'd disappear from Cora's life. She didn't mind it, so long as she didn't think about it. She was a female alpha, a mistake of genetics. Alpha girls didn’t have mates, certainly not Lydia Martin, with half of Beacon Hills as a dowry. As long as she didn't think of it, she could enjoy what she had, Lydia's sweet scent mixing with hers, that beautiful voice begging for her touch.

    Summary

    “Get the hell out of here, copper.”

    Officer Penn Zero tried to look incredulous. “Copper? Who, me?”

    The small woman in the bright red-and-black dress glared at him. “Yes, you, the moron with the dumb red hair who thought he could sneak in just like that.”

    All around them, the bar patrons watched the debacle with amusement, smoking their cigars, drinking their liquour, and peering up from their card tables.

    Penn chuckled. “Well, it can't be me! The bouncer let me in, didn't they?”

    The woman nodded. “Yes, that's because they told me there was a copper stupid enough to think he even had a snowball's chance in hell of getting in here, and I said, 'I have to see this douchesnozzle for myself, bring him in.'”

    Penn blinked, and stared. “You're...”

    “Sashi 'The Shark' Kobayashi, owner of the Chum Bucket.” She growled. “Your name, copper? Because I want to know which family to send the package to.”

    Summary

    This is the final reapings of my time during intersession. I just started writing it, and it came out to be what it is. Westeros has canon geography, but it's culture and technology mimic that of the 1920's prohibition era United States. It's just the missing part of the story between when Wex escapes Winterfell and when he meets Davos.

    The title is a Boardwalk Empire quote

    Summary

    Erwin Smith is an upstanding businessman, pillar of the Chicago community, vocal supporter of the Anti-Saloon League, and generous philanthropist. He's also the godfather and guardian of Eren Jaeger, having taken him and his adopted sister in when he was twelve, after his father's disappearance and the death of his mother at the hands of men working for a cut-throat gang calling themselves "The Titans."

    With one of Erwin's employees, a taciturn young man from the East Coast named Levi, assigned to watch him, Eren soon finds himself thrust into a world of guns, gangsters, and gin-runners.

    Oh, did I mention that Erwin is also the proprietor of Freedom's Wings, one of the most popular speakeasies in Tower Town?

    It seems that in Prohibition Era Chicago, everyone has a secret - or two - in their basement.

    (Continuation of Bottle It Up, covering both the "before" and "after" of that story.)

    Summary

    Sequel/Threequel to The Great War and overlaps events found there. Finish that story first for best clarity.

    Summary

    The year, 1932. Illegal moonshine is flowing through the south and beyond, and the rumrunners are still riding high, making millions by selling to speakeasies and the mob. Dean Winchester, son of the infamous John Winchester, owns his own still in the north Georgia mountains with Bobby Singer, John's former right-hand man, both running alcohol to Atlanta, mostly without incident until a certain blue-eyed prohibition officer gets involved with a vow to take the younger Winchester in, despite their sordid past together. An innocent chase through the hills turns into something much bigger than either can expect as the end of prohibition draws closer by the day and the two are forced to face their demons before their world crashes around them.

    Summary

    When Giulia Cappallett is fourteen, her beloved cousin Rosalina leaves. Joined a convent, her father tells guests, but Giulia knows that's not true. She bobs her hair and shortens her skirts and keeps her ears open, determined not to be kept in the dark anymore, but she never forgets what Rosalina told her about love.

    A Julie-centered prequel to Soon, We'll Be Without the Moon, converging to the same point. It's probably best to read that one first. (Like that story, this contains some implied homophobia, and very very faint hints of a pre-OT3. Julie and Tebaldo are of course cousins.)

    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

    Written for the Dean and Cas Secret Santa: Dean Barrow Winchester and Castiel Parker Novak are two of the most wanted in the USA. Told from the headlines, they were merciless murderers, bank robbers, and illicit lovers. But maybe the story was a different, more about a relentless love than Prohibition Robin Hoods.

    The Story of Bonnie and Clyde told with a twist.

    Summary

    In Prohibition New York, Tebaldo Cappallett struggles with his feelings—for his cousin Julie, who's bobbed her hair and is suddenly far too grown-up, and for a boy he met a long time ago and tried to forget.

    This time, nobody dies. But it's close.

    (There is some faintly implied temporary suicidal ideation on Tebaldo's part (much like canon, I think), faint hints of internalized homophobia, and of course Tebaldo and Julie are cousins, if that kind of thing squicks you.)
