    Summary

    AU: The reason Martin Brenner even got involved with Hawkins Lab was to save his eleven-year-old daughter, Maggie. In the years since her death passed and Brenner has become a cog in the machine until Eleven, and Maggie's memory through her, give 'Papa' the courage to face his own demons and seek redemption and the happiness taken from him.
    This fic was inspired by the sweet real-life relationship between Millie Bobby Brown and Matthew Modine and I thought it'd be a fun premise to explore.

    Summary

    C.S. Rutherford was no hero, so when a dame with dark verdant eyes and a sharp wit strode into his office, it was a good thing she wasn’t looking for one. Surviving was the only thing he was good at; the question was, would he survive her?

    Summary

    The year is 1934, and the Golden Age of Hollywood is in full swing. Paul McCartney is a new actor on the scene, fresh off his debut musical-comedy movie that smashed box office records and charmed the critics. His next role is in a big-budget thriller film co-starring one of Hollywood’s biggest names—a one John Lennon, infamous for his versatile acting ability and leading roles and attitude. It will come down to more than just top billing as the two verbally spar with each other (both in-character and out of it) and harass their fellow actors and crew to the point of distraction. Of course, it’s well-known that a solid way to measure a film’s success is through the chemistry of its leads…which might be less of a problem than anticipated.

    Summary

    1935. The Great Depression ravages the world. Fascism threatens Europe. Millions languish in poverty and despair. The nations stand on the brink of ruin or rebirth.

    Aspiring writer Jughead Jones navigates through the perilous economic and political climate of the 1930s. Veronica Lodge's wealthy father battles Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal. Betty Cooper tries to tone down the Riverdale Register's rabid isolationism just a little bit. Cliff Blossom disperses striking laborers with a little help from the Pinkerton Detective Agency. His rebellious son Jason dabbles in Soviet Communism. Archie Andrews still can't make a decision to save his life.

    And they are all about to find themselves thrust into the shadows of conspiracy, treason, class struggle, and war.

    Or the Great Depression AU no one asked for.

    Summary

    After David's marriage to a Mary Renault Mother™, Frank works out how to survive.

    *

    To Nineveh_uk's prompt: Frank/David: sixes and sevens. I'm afraid 'sixes and sevens' took my mind straight to this series, where they're slightly estranged.

    Note: period-typical everythings, c.20-year age gap between sexual partners, characters who are their own exhaustive list of content warnings.

    Summary

    Liv was leaning against the bathroom wall, a typically unimpressed expression on her face. A younger man was crouched on the ground next to her, an unfocused blur of fair hair and blue eyes. Rafael looked up at Liv. “You called for reinforcements?”

    A small smile quirked at the side of her mouth. “This is Sonny.”

    Sonny reached over and turned the shower off, briefly meeting his eyes with a mix of wariness and distaste.

    Rafael swept his soaking wet hair back off his forehead and settled back in the bath. “Glad to meet you kid, you’re a real horse’s ass.”


    When his partner is killed because of a scam gone wrong, aspiring con-man Sonny Carisi teams up with old pro Rafael Barba to get his revenge on the crime boss responsible.

    Summary

    So much depends upon a blonde boy who's ocean blue eyes hold the weight of the world's love and gentleness; all reserved for a charming boy who hated his name up until his best friend declared him a different one.

    Purpose, trust, loyalty, and love are things James "Bucky" Barnes knew of when he met Steve "I-can-do-this-all-day" Rogers. Together, they grew.

    The 1930s-1940s condemned a man for holding another man's hand, but never for shooting him. As a consequence, Bucky and Steve were inclined to reserve all romantic feelings. However, a dimly lit room was always an escape; they promised each other to stay.

    In comes the war, the scientific miracle of turning Steve into America's hero, and the curse of losing one another. Steve survives it all, but his best friend and heart doesn't—at least, he thinks so.

    Bucky Barnes stands right in front of the blonde with ocean eyes who declares his name seventy years later; and yet:

    "Who the hell is Bucky?"

    Summary

    Every other night, a tall, breathtakingly handsome writer, with still such a young frame, would come to the very same bar and share lonely drinks by his own thoughts while not so discreetly looking at the mayor's son, who easily talks to the people surrounding him and would start dancing to songs being played later on.

    At some unpredictable point, Park Jimin would do anything to keep that gaze lingering on him for an undefined, but already wished forever.

    Summary

    The streets were quiet in the Under-City, as it was still barely dawn. The slowly brightening sky casted wisps of oranges and pinks over the cobblestones, and stained the window panes of the sleepy town, a telltale sign of the quickly approaching sunrise. At first, this sight would appear quite serene, maybe even tranquil to the ignorant outsider, or the casual passerby. Frisk new better,however, then to trust the peaceful illusion presented by the empty streets of the Under- City as she stuck to the shadows of the back alley ways, refusing to so much as touch the light of the new dawn. This was Ebbot after all, and no amount of peaceful sunrises could bathe away the true grime of the Under- City that existed in the form of organized crime and corruption which clung to Ebbot like thick black tar. Though it might look pretty from a distance life was hard here, and making an honest living was a concept really only found in fairy tales.

    Summary

    The main character is Shirley, and this story is inspired by Shirley Temple. I got the idea when I saw a video on YouTube with a woman who was totally convinced that Shirley was a boy! I do not believe this in any way. It did give me an idea for a story.
    So you will follow the life and times of Shirley Temple in the dark and corrupt town of Hollywood
    This is not a historic piece and resembles in no way the Shirley Temple’s life in any way. You can say this is written in an alternative universe. This includes some of the inventions and clothes being worn.
