    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

    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, automobiles, cinema, radio, 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.

    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.

    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.

    He looks up at her, blinks wildly. She’s grinning like she knows a secret he isn’t privy to.

    "That is...would you care to dance?"

    // Queenie and Tina are singers at a certain speakeasy. Jacob and Newt are enraptured. AU.

    Clint Barton is the most observant detective in the precinct, and he still manages to be the last to know everything. It's 1933, and no one has actually met the owner of the Iron Legion club, Natasha Romanov has a unique take on this whole 'caring for others' thing, and no one is paying Sam Wilson to flirt with the damn Hunyak
