    Summary

    On Halloween night in 1932, Chloe Beale meets a disguised stranger with whom she has an immediate, magnetic connection. She has a sneaking suspicion, based on the petite frame, delicate hands, and soft lips that it’s a young woman. According to the rules of 1930s New York high society, it should definitely confuse and potentially frighten Chloe. But Chloe has never played by the rules. She soon finds out several of those around her don’t either. In fact, they’re the ones who will make it possible for Chloe and her mystery crush to ultimately be together.

    Summary

    Bonnie and Clyde AU: Ben dives through the door of Rey's car with a bag of cash and tells her to drive. They go on to form a partnership that lives in infamy.

    ~~~
    EXCERPT:

    “Register,” said Ben, jogging out from behind the counter.

    Rey’s heart was racing, and she could hear the blood rushing in her ears. She’d spent her entire life trying to get by, just keeping her head down and doing the right thing, waiting for it to pay off.

    It hadn’t. In exchange for her faith in the universe she had a couple good scars and a ribcage you could play like a xylophone.

    She stuffed cash into the pockets of her pants and when that didn’t work she shoved bills into her shirt, under the band of linen that was an essential part of her boy’s disguise.

    Ben came skidding around a corner, a burlap sack dangling from one fist. “C’mon,” he said, grabbing her with his other hand, and then they were running through the heat, laughing and coughing from the dust they kicked up, leaping into the car and roaring off towards the sunset.

    Summary

    The resets keep happening, but Papyrus is gone.

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.

    Summary

    For years, Ben Solo graced the theatre stages with his elegant, effortless tap dancing.

    Film standards however…

    Can’t sing.
    Can’t act.
    Can dance a little.

    He had no such luck. Well, that is until a little nobody, Rey Kenobi, began charming her way through the business.

    When Ben Solo and Rey Kenobi are paired as featured dancers in a Hollywood darling’s upcoming film, they may just be each other’s ticket to making it on the silver screen.

    Summary

    Oxford University,
    June, 1935.

    The edge of summer has just begun to dawn over the university campus, exams are almost over and the dust is just beginning to settle over the desks.
    Harry Styles, in the last years of his PHD study of The Renaissance, has managed to maintain a safe existence within the walls of his books and classes and late night romances. He's made a place that's safe from the expectations of high brow society and the cold stare of his father.
    That is, until an all too sharp, all too witty, and all too handsome man walks into his life.
    Louis, the cocky man with the smile, brings with him a strange object - declaring that it's a puzzle piece from the one and only Leonardo Da Vinci. He speaks of age old mysteries, and puzzles that cannot be solved without Harry's help. Immediately, Harry is quite literally swept off his feet, and together they take their chances on the find of a life time - Da Vinci's lost works.
    But what Louis doesn't mention is the high stakes game of cat and mouse that comes with chasing things that do not belong to you. A game where nothing, and no one, is as they seem.
