    Summary

    “On what planet, Hermann,” Newton groans, “is a tobacco run also a gelato run?”

    “You ridiculous man,” Hermann sighs, kissing Newton’s temple, “I’m offering you ice cream for breakfast. What’s so difficult about this?”

    “The part where you wanna smoke instead of eat something, but go to town, I guess?”

    [Directly follows Our Breath Will Still / A Short Distance Ahead and Tooth and Nail. From a Tumblr prompt.]

    Summary

    It's a sin to tell a lie. It's also a sin to steal, cheat, and kill.

    Officer/Deputy George Ryan Ross III has been polished with these "golden rules" during his Catholic upbringing in the 1950’s, while in the midst of a desolate West Texas town.

    Agent Brendon Urie is an FBI rookie in training. He's sent to the "middle of no-where" Texas on a case of dead barmaids.

    "Be sure it's true when you say I love you
    It's a sin to tell a lie
    Millions of hearts have been broken
    Just because these words were spoken..."

    Summary

    Written for DisneyDarlingGirl, who asked for "I would probably like to see something along the lines of a greaser Klaus and a good girl Caroline? Maybe they could even have been friends when they were younger but as they grew up, they split up into two different crowds?"

    Summary

    One would think that first day of Senior year would be amazing! Yeah…wrong! For Park Sayuri, it was the worst! Not only did she have to rush to school since she woke up late, she had the “opportunity” to meet up with the bane of her existence. The number one pain in the neck. The school’s heartthrob—Mark freaking Lee. After many failed attempts of getting her to go on date with him, you’d think that Mark would give up, right? Nope! There’s no such thing as rejection in Mark’s book. He and his buddies ruled the school. Whatever he said goes. He had every single girl at his feet yet his eyes still maintained fixated on Sayuri. His friends called him foolish for chasing after a girl that wanted him to jump off a cliff, but what could he say? He always loved a challenge.

    Summary

    There’s Fuck my life and then there's Fuck my life-Jaime Lannister style. The only romantic relationships he ever had are over and done with, his sister is on his ass 24/7, and the ‘50s soda shop his parents left them is more hassle than fun at this point. At least his employee Bronn, equipped with his special brand of cheer, seems to be on his side.

    Summary

    His jacket was different than the others, not only in that the serpent stitched onto it was two headed, but that on each of the detailed heads was a golden crown.

    That boy wasn’t just a snake.

    He was a Basilisk, a king among serpents. She could see it clearly now, from the way his bike was propped up just a little bit further up from the other two, and from the careful way the other two boys flanked him as they walked further into the bustling crowd.

    Summary

    “What the fuck was that for?”
    “It was your fault! You challenged me to a fight.”
    “No you goof, get with it, I was asking you to dance!”

    Enjolras and Grantaire are part of rival gangs. There is swearing and dancing and miscommunication because 1950s slang was very confusing!

    Summary

    Summary: It's 1957 in Riverdale. Jughead Jones has a penchant for bikes, books, and Betty Cooper. He's instantly smitten when he sees her, rescuing her from an awkward situation so that he can learn more about her. And Betty, who happily goes along with him, finds herself inexplicably drawn to the young man. He's well-read and a little mysterious.

    Bughead AU. Based on the 1950's era and culture. Subtle sexiness.

    Author's Personal Note: I wrote this story for myself and fell in love with it. For the sake of accuracy, I tried to select books and songs from the fifties to use in this story. I think only one of them was written around '60-'61.

    Disclaimer: I do not own the rights to Riverdale; Roberto Aguirre Sacasa is the writer of Riverdale, the TV series on the CW. I also do not own rights to any songs that might be listed in this story. This story is just for fun and not for profit.

    Please comment. Thanks.

    Summary

    “I can think of something you would find fun to do,” Shiro whispered in his ear, one hand stationed on his cheek and the other creeping its way under his shirt and sweater.

     

     

     

    Lance’s reply caught in his throat when he felt cold fingers trail up his lower back. They tapped on his spine as they crept steadily up until he could feel his shirt rising, exposing his skin to the autumn air. Goosebumps raised all along his upper body and he bit back whatever noise was threatening to spill from his traitorous mouth.

     

    Lance is a bit of a square, Shiro's not as much of a greaser as he wants to be. When they're alone, though, they're just two boys who love each other despite what the world thinks.

    (A very gratuitous Greaser/Nerd AU that no one asked for.)

    Summary

    An exhausted and stressed out superpower finds a relic of better days in the back of the hidden drinking cabinet he'd used during Prohibition, and suddenly the stress doesn't seem that bad; at least, not if he has the escape he'd long forgotten about: The glide of soft fabrics agains silk skin, the warmth of appreciative appraisal directed at him, and the comfort that - for a few precious hours - he could be anyone he wanted to be.

    If one sneaky nation hadn't intervened.
