    Summary

    The year is 1933, the United States is stricken with a seemingly endless depression. The stock market's crash affects every aspect of daily life. Billions of dollars have been lost, countless hardworking Americans have been laid off and contaminated with extreme poverty. Many people live from paycheck to paycheck, unable to provide necessities for themselves and their families.

    Spending money on entertainment is out of the question for most. So a very inexpensive media outlet arose: Radio. Some programs gained large and loyal followings, while others struggled to gain traction considering the immense numbers of competitive shows.

    Arin Hanson has built a small but respectable show with his co-host Jon. But when Jon leaves the program it's up to Arin to save his life's work from tanking.

    Summary

    In the 1920's era of prohibition, there lies a life of glitz and glamour that everyone seeks. Fresh off another world tour, and retired from the famous Ballet Russes, Viktor searches for something to spark his passions once more, and it could be that he has found just that. Former dancer Katsuki Yuuri catches the eye of renowned ballet dancer Viktor Nikiforov as he must fill in one night at one of the up and coming speakeasies on the late night Chicago strip.

    -*-*-*-

    There was a drop in the beat, and the dancer threw a hand to his lips, feigning a wide-eyed gasp, as his leg kicked up beside his head. On two feet once more, he turned over his shoulder and blew a kiss, complete with a knowing wink, towards the audience.

    Viktor was enthralled.

    Summary

    “Almost nobody dances sober, unless they happen to be insane.” ~HP Lovecraft

    On a night at a speakeasy, Credence and company just happen to encounter Percival Graves, Credence's long-time crush. And nothing might have happened, because neither man is particularly good at expressing feelings. But jazz and moonshine together can work miracles...and nobody in the speakeasy is dancing sober.

    Summary

    In the time of prohibition and abnormals, those with genetic mutations, Marco Bodt is situated neatly between a rock and a suspicious place. As an abnormal with a genetic mutation of enhanced strength, Marco prefers to keep knowledge of his true life swept beneath a rather heavy rug. When a waiter at the diner he frequents every Friday night for a strawberry milkshake begins to flirt with him, he finds it more than a touch odd. Unsure if the man is honestly interested, trying to get close to him to kill him, or is a cop, Marco devises a few plans to shake him loose and figure him out. When none work and he discovers Jean is just a regular guy with a genuine interest, he takes him out a roller rink where more than a few mishaps befall them. By the end of the night, Marco is convinced Jean is crazier than a box of frogs, but didn't mind that the night ended with a few kissess. The next morning a note is delivered to his place of work; someone has kidnapped Jean. Why would someone kidnap him after one night together? Why had Jean waited months before making his move? What was going on? Was it a trap; he didn't know, but he fully intended to find out.

    Summary

    “If life were one of those novels your sister favors,” he says suddenly, “this would be the part where one of us makes an eloquent declaration of tender affections.”

    She scratches his scalp when he grins at up her, eyes dancing mischievously. “How do you even know that?” she teases.

    He shrugs casually before laying his ear just over her heart, his eyes drifting closed. “I’m only pointing it out,” he murmurs and purrs when she pets his head, smoothing down his coarse hair.

    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

    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’
