    Summary

    Steve Rogers had a good life. He was close to graduating from Brooklyn’s Community Art School, he had a roof over his head, and he had his mother. For the ‘Dark 30’s’ as they were called, he was getting by.

    Until his mother contracts Tuberculosis and dies. Now he’s a dropout, practically without a home, no job, and in debt.

    As for his shredded life, he tells himself it could’ve been worse.

    That doesn’t stop him from jumping onto the nearest train speeding away from Brooklyn.

    No one told him what on earth he’d be getting himself into.

    Summary

    On the streets of 1930s LA, a pretty blonde prostitute propositions an enigmatic dark-haired gunrunner with a penchant for Marlboro cigarettes and amber bourbon.

    "Sebastian gripped onto her forearm, guiding her hand to his lips so he could trace the lipstick stain of her drugstore cigarette. His lifestyle didn’t exactly allow for close personal company but there was something fatalistic about this jade-eyed, blonde haired beauty. Something that said she wasn’t going to live past her 30th birthday and that was just fine with Sebastian.

    He’d like to make her immortal."

    Summary

    As the last man standing slumped to the floor, he took a deep breath and pondered how the power of a gun and the rush of taking someone else's life made him feel so good. He'd never known he was capable of killing someone before, and he wasn't sure he was capable of ever doing it again.

    Summary

    Summer, 1935.

    Leonard "Loki" Laufeyson needs a fresh start. Leaving New York City is only the first step; keeping two paces ahead of trouble is the most important.

    When he reaches the little town of Pine Flat, Louisiana, he thinks he may have found his sanctuary. It's quiet, simple, and most of all, far away from gangsters and numbers runners. But Pine Flat holds a lot of dark secrets, and in the midst of this sleepy little community, murder and mayhem lurk around each corner.

    When he meets and falls for the vivacious Brunnhilde "Hilde" Greenwood, Loki gets more trouble than he'd anticipated down in the deep south.

    Murder. Moonshine. Money...just your everyday average Louisiana summer.

    Summary

    “Keep it up McClain, talking like that won’t do you any good for the next sixteen years.”

    The wooden legs of the chair suddenly screeched against the wooden floor as the Sheriff stood and moved the chair to in front of the cell. “Listen here, Lance..." The sheriff said, his rugged voice almost soft. "My boys told you that you needed to steer clear Kansas,” the Sheriff took off his hat and placed it on his lap, “But not three months later, you are back! Now... the judge did not like that one little bit" The sarcastic tone dripped off of each word that the Sherrif said. "That along with the fact that you broke into that general store… Well…,” with a smirk and a hearty laugh the sheriff placed his hat back on his head.

    The flame from the match that was held between two fingers scorched Lance’s fingers as his mind held onto every word the Sheriff had spoken.

    State...

    ...judge...

    ... Sixteen Years...

    Sixteen years... Sixteen years... Sixteen... Sixteen years.

    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.

    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.
