    Summary

    It's the twins' birthday, and a lukewarm truce has been agreed upon to let them spend the day together. They just weren't told.

     

    Rated PG at best for implied drugging, but if you're in this sub-fandom, you should already know the usual topics are far, far worse than this.

     

    Inspired by this piece of Annie and Amelie looking dapper as hell.

    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 synonymous with the Jazz Age, Prohibition, flappers, speakeasies, 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. Rating will go up as story progresses.

    Summary

    It’s the roaring twenties, and Prohibition is in full swing. But for those that frequent speakeasies and those who run the alcohol to keep those speakeasies open, the spirits still flow freely. Castiel and his twin brother Jimmy, who live in sin with each other according to their family (and most other people as well), frequent just such an establishment as customers, and Dean just so happens to supply it. While Castiel feels inadequate because of his brother’s affections for the green eyed rumrunner, Dean only seems to encourage them. Though there may be more affections than anyone expected, and this might possibly be the start of something new.

    Summary

    Frisk is closing up the bar and steps up onto the stage, she feels the need to sing. Sing about her cursed love. Deep inside of her she finds a song of pain and love.

    Firsk stood on the bare stage, an audience of chairs neatly stacked on top of mahogany tables before her. The soft warm glow from the candles flickering in the bar, a nice break from normal lights of everyday life. Her glossy eyes scanning the empty speakeasy, checking over for any whisper of life. The bartender left for the night, trusting her with closing. How did she end up on stage looking out into the dark room. The women had no reason, other than a yearning for the past. Never did she think that she would end up wanting it again. She nervously pushed her brown hair behind her left ear trying to find her voice.

    ‘Sing’

    Summary

    "Just go pick up some Eurotrash from the docks."

    Harvey looked between all three of them with wide eyes and a furrowed brow, tapping the grey ash from his cigarette into a clear ashtray. "Don't tell me you haven't seen 'em. Crawling onto the docks- all fresh off the boat from Ellis island."

    "Well, they're desperate- they'll take anything if it pays more than a cent. You could probably get one to do both jobs."

    Joe looked thoughtful, Pete looked interested, and Andy looked sad. Their personalities could not have been more perfectly outlined in their reactions to the news of masses of hungry-for-work, starving immigrants.

     

    "The docks, eh?"

    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

    When Cas first met Dean he had just finished playing his first set and sat down on one of the barstools, his hands shaking from the rush of his performance. Dean appeared from the smoke filled room, in a cheap shirt and a million dollar smile. Cas thought he was beautiful. He didn't say so of course, he was too careful back then.

    Summary

    New York in the summer of 2016 is muggy and gross; New York in the summer of 1923 is the same and the air conditioning is definitely lacking.

    “I am not wearing that,” Len says flatly, eyeing the outfit Gideon has produced. “The suit, yes, the underwear, no.”

    1920's style SpideyPool minus the powers.

    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

    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.
