    Summary

    Yuri drifts between shadow and moonlight, the only two places he can exist. He's wild, Otabek knows. He's deadly. Yet Otabek agrees to ally with him to defeat a common enemy. They'll not kill each other (for now), and Otabek will do his best to hide his betrayal from their town.

    But there's a storm under Yuri's skin, and nearness to him awakens Otabek to a side of the shadows he’s never noticed. He pulls away, but his world is altered to a permanent winterscape with snowflakes falling like ash from the humanity Yuri's burning down in both of them.

    Otabek understands soon enough he's fallen in too far, so he follows Yuri until moonlight itself tastes like him.

    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 and grapples with the fact that his son Jason is a Communist. 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

    Independence Day.
    The 4th of July.
    It holds a special place in Bucky's heart for more that just the seer fact that his best friend is literally the embodiment of the holiday.

    ----

    After finally getting his episodes back under control, Bucky decides to finally start living life a bit more normally. What happens when he is greeted by what he believes to be the ghost of someone special from his past?

    ----

    A fluffy romance about Bucky and the girl he fell for before the war. There will be lots of time spent in the 1930's but also in a sort of AU present day. I say sort of AU because in this story its as though after Bucky regained his memories all of the Avengers were sort of living out their days rather happily (save from some missions here and there) in the Avengers Tower. There will be eventual love scenes but that will take a while to get to. I love a slow build and domestic fluff.

    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.

    Summary

    웃유 ╾━╤デ╦︻ 웃

    "This lissome blonde will entertain men as told, albeit with little evidence of desire or sexual interest.
    In fact, there is hardly any evidence that she possesses strong emotions at all,
    yet she has the hegemonic power to make men think they are madly in love with her mind, throat, and soul.
    To be easily colonized by this woman is to end your own life."

    But is Westergaard's wife a coy victim or a cold villain? In a world where decadence is kinged by mafias, gamblers, Nazis, blondes, call girls, and burlesque dancers, a smutty thief attempts to pick both of their locks. Hers should've been left alone, though. Along with those sparkly sapphires, that disturbing diary, and the Holy Grail between her legs.

    Summary

    What if Septimus had been motivated to save the name and status of the Weasley family on the first of September 1932?

      "Alright, then. Sort me in whatever House you think is best."

    The Sorting Hat didn't need long to think.

    "SLYTHERIN!"

    The Great Hall was stunned into silence, only a clinking of coins being heard as Alrod handed Peter his money. The Weasleys were a Gryffindor house, everyone knew that. They’d been Gryffindor since even before Gryffindor existed. Anyone who was interested in wizarding history, anyone who put importance in purity and blood-lines, any Slytherin knew that. And yet Septimus Weasley had been sorted in Slytherin, Gryffindor’s perpetual arch-nemesis.

    Summary

    WIP Podfic of southspinner's "All The Stars In Texas"

    -

    Marco Bodt has always wanted to make the history books and has come to the conclusion that infamy looks far better on him than fame. Jean Kirschtein has always wanted to get out of Depression-ridden West Dallas and chase his dreams. A chance meeting throws the spark that sets Texas on fire, and what started as something simple becomes a dangerous game of love, lust, and the birth of living legends.

    Summary

    The resets keep happening, but Papyrus is gone. Nearly six years of grief have warped Sans, causing him to risk his soul with self-destructive behavior and making him all but unrecognizable to his old friends. Any day now, he expects a reset that will bring him far enough back in time to reunite with his brother and erase his sins. In the meantime, he'll distract himself with Muffet's new call girl...

    You need a lot of money, right now. Unlike the majority of humans in the slums of New Ebott, you don't have any anti-monster prejudice, and you're kinky, submissive and enjoy sex. You've heard someone like you can do very well for herself, catering to monsters. Now here you are with your first client, a skeleton monster in a suit offering you a drink from a hip flask...

    Undertale gangster AU with a 1930s-era American aesthetic, essentially because I like the clothes. Status updates and story chatter at http://neroli9.tumblr.com.
