    Summary

    (The Mafia/ Bootleg AU that no one had written to my satisfaction, so I have to do it myself.)

    A multi-faceted battle is going on in the underground of the Big Apple. The Iron Family is stirring up trouble where trouble don't belong. The Hydra Gang is a developing cancer in the rise of Hitler. And the Brooklyn Boys just tryn' to get by in the midst of the depression.

    Out side all that, Tony Stark and Steve Rogers think they have found the love of their life (or as close as you can get in the homophobic society of 1934). Thing is, they don't know that one is a small time mob boss out for vengeance, and the other is a gang leader makin' profit off bathtub gin.

    Summary

    “Greenburg’s dead…” Stiles said in a whisper. Derek didn’t answer, just stared up into the sky, trying to catch his breath. All he wanted was a steady job, to provide for his sisters. He never wanted to kill anybody.

    “Sir? We should get moving…” Stiles put his hand on Derek’s shoulder. His eyes were wide and frightened when Derek finally met them. “Please, Derek. Let’s get out of here.”

    Derek jerked Stiles into his arms. Stiles made a squeak as he squeezed too tightly. Derek couldn’t make himself care. He buried his face into Stiles neck, taking breath after haggard breath of that sweet, cinnamon scent. He wanted to bite, mark and claim and take his mate out of that awful place. Instead he ran his tongue along the length of his neck, relishing the pulse when he found it. Stiles whimpered slightly and rested his head on Derek’s shoulder.

    “You alright?” Derek asked. His fingers ran carefully over Stiles’ injured arm, trying to gauge the extent of the wound.

    “Yes,” Stiles’ breath was warm against him. “We should go…”

    Derek pushed his lips to his mate’s neck, trying to memorize the salty sweet taste. “You’re alright,” he said, his mind hazy.

    Summary

    1922, NEW YORK CITY. Welcome to the offices of Marcus Kane, Private Eye, where the kind of cases the cops can't be bothered with always seem to wash up. When a wealthy knockout named Abigail Griffin walks through his door one day, pleading for help to find her missing daughter, Kane thinks it's an open-and-shut case of a spoiled rich kid going on the lam after a drunken night on the town. Then NYPD Lieutenant Bellamy Blake - Kane's inside man on the force - discovers that six other daughters of wealthy families from all over the country have vanished this year and suspects the cases may be connected. When Superintendent Jaha benches Bellamy for overreaching, he brings the evidence to Kane. With the help of Bellamy, his eavesdropping, lock-picking sister (and Kane's assistant) Octavia, her ex-mobster boyfriend Lincoln, a Brooklyn mechanic (and occasional getaway driver) named Raven, and the pair of wisecracking bootleggers who run the neighborhood speakeasy, Kane must take the law into his own hands to rescue the seven missing heiresses, as he finds himself falling for the mysterious femme fatale Abigail - who may not be all that she seems . . .

    Summary

    “I bet you got a hell of a lot of stories, handsome.”
    “Yeah. Sure, I got stories.”

    “He owns New York city. Maybe you’ve heard of him?”

    Summary

    Thea the Queen runs a thriving business of bootleg liquor, sleights of hand, and loaded guns.


    Written for GenFic Minis Round 5: Super Shift (and another doodad applied because I'm having some killer writer's block rn). There were two prompts in my assignment: an Arrow one, in which Thea runs her own lady-ruled speakeasy, and a Flarrowverse/Leverage fusion with as many ladies as I could include.* I combined them both to make whatever exactly this turned out being.

    *Some of the ladies are only mentioned and don't appear, but there's only one male character here, (because I wanted some Thea/Oliver bickering.)

    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

    'Pete glared at him, slightly abashed. How had this man (nay, this boy), pushed his way through Pete’s wall like that. His magic didn’t fail. His magic never failed. What was this clown doing?

    “Your majesty,” the boy said, only further confirming his identity.'

    Pete was the best bootlegger known to man during the prohibition. He had all the money, all the women, and all the power he wanted. So what if he'd been the laughing stock back at home, making a joke of himself every time he failed to do something everyone else immediately mastered. So what. Amongst the humans, Pete's magic was flawless. He was a god, and when you're a god, why would you ever want to be a prince?

    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.
