    Summary

    "[...] lesbians and gay men writing letters to their lovers and friends faced the special problem of wartime censorship. Military censors, of course, cut out all information that might aid the enemy, but this surveillance made it necessary for gay and lesbian correspondents to be careful not to expose their homosexuality. To get around this, gay men befriended sympathetic censors or tricked others by using campy phrases, signing a woman’s name (like Dixie or Daisy), or changing the gender of their friends. Sailors became WAVEs, boyfriends became WACs, Robert became Roberta. There must exist, hidden in closets and attics all over America, a huge literature of these World War II letters between lesbians and between gay men that would tell us even more about this important part of American history." - Coming Out Under Fire: The History of Gay Men and Women In World War Two, by Allan Berube

    Summary

    A week before Thor's coronation, a drunk and depressed Loki decides he wants a genuine friend of his own. Of course, he turns to magic to solve his dilemma.
    There are only two problems. First, he is very aware that his current form isn't very lovable or trustworthy. Second, he actually needs a person to befriend.
    This is how Loki ends up in Tony Stark's living room, minutes after his disastrous birthday party, and in the shape of a cat. What will our favorite genius-billionaire-playboy-philanthropist make of the mysteriously appearing feline, and how will it all affect their lives, and those of the people around them?

    Summary

    You work in Sunset Animal Hospital located in Sunset City, just an hour or so away from Mt. Ebott. Yes, THE Mt. Ebott. The one where the monsters all came from. Your interaction with them had been fairly minimal until the day that two skeletons walked through your hospital doors.

    First story here on the archive! Yay. Papyrus just doesn't get enough love. I'm here to fix that.

    Edit: I have a tumblr: http://smallpersiankitten.tumblr.com/ See a cool undertale photo or have some you want to share? Share it with me. SFW and NSFW are perfectly fine

    Summary

    You walk into a skeleton one frozen winter day and surprise him by apologizing. You don't think anything of it - You're Canadian, after all! - but to him and his friends, it means the world to them.

    I wanted some more romance and a more realistic, super slow build up than a lot of the SansxReader fics I read on this site, so I decided to write something of my own :) It starts with some background SansxToriel, then it moves to a platonic friendship with the skeletons and their friends. I also wanted a much more assertive reader - There be no damsels here, whether overprotective Sans likes it or not.

    A lot of the content in this is based on real events in my life, just rearranged to fit the story I want to tell. Many names have been changed to protect the innocent.

    Summary

    Dean Winchester is a juvenile delinquent with a shady past. Raised by a stubborn, selfish alpha, Dean's life takes a turn for the worse when he unexpectedly presents as an omega and he finds himself betrothed just days after his sixteenth birthday.

    And if the situation weren't bad enough, Dean's father hadn't promise him to just any average Joe, run of the mill alpha. Of course not. John Winchester had to go and promise Dean to a son of a Russian crime boss who was second in line to take over his family's business.

    Oh, not mention, he's also a hitman.

    Summary

    Originally written for the Glee Angst Meme on LiveJournal. Prompt: Kurt and Mercedes are out one night by themselves (preferably doing something that would be seen as romantic, like dinner or a movie) when they're attacked by a group of thugs. Both of them are severely injured and can't provide details about the attack for whatever reason. Maybe they're too drugged up on painkillers, maybe one or both is comatose, maybe it's post-traumatic amnesia, whatever. But they can't help the investigators figure out who did it.

    Everyone, the media, their friends, their families, assume it was a gay bashing and that Mercedes just got caught in the crossfire.

    The truth? It was a gang of racists who thought Kurt was Mercedes' boyfriend. They wanted to... express their opinions on interracial dating.

    No character death please, and I'd prefer it to end with the attackers getting caught but that's up to the writer.

    Summary

    Jean Kirschtein has devoted five years of his life to the Trost Police Department. During that time he has been a model officer. He's never even fired a shot while on duty; until now.

    Now there's a seventeen-year-old dead kid and his blood is all over Jean's hands. The lawsuit alleges that it was a hate crime and the kid was only shot because of his race. Now the entire city seems to think Jean is a killer and a racist, and he's not only in danger of losing his job, but may even be facing time in prison to atone for the kid's death.

    Exiled from his duties, pressured into therapy, and caught in the cogs of the court system, Jean's nerves are stretched so thin that they may snap at any moment. It doesn't help that he's going through a rather unpleasant breakup because of the shooting, either. At least his patrol shift has his back; especially the surprisingly sympathetic Eren Jaeger, whose solution to life's problems is to fuck them - quite literally. He also receives unexpected support from the unlikely source of Marco Bodt, the new paramedic who just transferred from Jinae.

    Everyone is watching, and if the stress doesn't kill him, Jean is sure there are plenty of people in town who'd be more than willing.

    Summary

    The crest of waves crash beneath him against jagged rocks and the steep cliffside. He arrived just in time to watch the sun set past the horizon on the Mediterranean Sea, like he used to do on evenings so similar to today years ago. He used to enjoy the sea breeze, the smell of salt in the air, but now all it does is remind him of what he has lost. He remembers the evenings spent holding the man he loved in his arms, where nothing else mattered. Not Overwatch, not the UN, not Blackwatch. It was in those moments he thought maybe they would be able to find happiness, that somehow they would be able to weather the storms and come out stronger, together. After years of separation, he hoped, foolishly, that perhaps they'd finally be able to crawl out of the abyss after so long and start over. He doesn't deserve forgiveness, and he shouldn't be surprised to be standing here alone.

    In hindsight, he should have known their story would only end in tragedy.

    Summary

    The year is 1976. In November, Jimmy Carter will take control of the White House. Americans are meeting Laverne & Shirley at their apartment in Milwaukee. Hotel California diverges from the reign of Kool & the Gang. And the FBI is still reeling from the repercussions of Watergate, the tragedy at Wounded Knee, Operation Family Secrets, and the strategic terrors of the anti-cult movement.

    That's what Special Agent Harry Styles has been told is the basis of his mission to an abandoned farmhouse in rural New Hampshire.

    With his hair grown out long and his shirt untucked, he's going undercover to do reconnaissance on suspected cult leader Louis Tomlinson, who has led a group of people out into the middle of nowhere, leaving no record of the life he'd had before. All Harry knows is what the agency gave him: Tomlinson's name, and instructions to figure out what he's doing with the eleven people he brought with him.

    In the year that Harry spends undercover and under Louis Tomlinson's wing, he learns more than he ever expected.

    Summary

    'the silence is peaceful.' you sign to him silently.

    That’s a lie. The silence is agonizing when they all are at school and your parents aren’t here. It means your world is empty. You even prefer the yelling of your father to the utter silence when your left in your empty room alone for the whole day, almost every day, completely alone. You hate the silence.

    Maybe that’s why you like how loudly Papyrus yells when he talks?
