    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. Also, come chat with other APJFM fans at the APJFM Discord server!

    Summary

    As Jeonghan begins to sing, a lamp turns on at the rear table and his eyes lock with a dark, heavy-lidded gaze. So this is him, the youngest crime boss in the city; the man with the million dollar smile that closes million dollar deals; the Prince of Diamonds himself, Choi Seungcheol. Jeonghan has done his reading, but no dossier could have prepared him for thick, plush lips and eyes that seem to undress him onstage.

    Summary

    John Marston hires Arthur Morgan, a private detective, to look into the death of Heidi McCourt, a former friend who he suspects was the victim of foul play rather than suicide. His investigation leads them into the middle of an escalating war between two powerful gangsters fighting for control over West Elizabeth’s bootlegging industry—both of which Arthur has unpleasant and unfinished history with.

    Ch 7: Arthur really wants to go to bed, but things like John falling into the lake, Hosea spending half the chapter sassing him, and revelations about both the case and his partner-in-crime keep getting in the way.

    Note: I've been sick for the past two weeks, so Chapter 8 will be delayed unfortunately.

    Summary

    It was the winter of 1930, and the Politburo of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union issued the law "About measures to eliminate kulak farms in areas of complete collectivization", and Fyodor Dostoevsky did not know about it because there are things that worried him more than politics. For example, survival.

    Summary

    To the outside observer, Will Graham and Hannibal Lecter seem to have nothing in common: one is a penniless migrant accused of murder, the other a wealthy doctor and a pillar of his community.

    In truth, Will Graham and Hannibal Lecter are just alike. They are killers who long to show their true face, but are held back by the same shared uncertainty: have they fallen in love with a mask, or the man hiding behind it?

    Summary

    Simon works in a factory, barely making enough money to keep himself going by the end of the month, but he can at least dance his troubles away when the night arrives.

    Baz is the heir to a very important company that seems to survive any economic crisis. Every single person from his surroundings expect a lot from him - be it family, business folks or bride aspirants. He has a lot, and although he is not ungrateful for it, he always felt like something was off.

    They probably wouldn't meet in normal circumstances, being essentially different in so many ways, but fate always finds its way, doesn't it?

    Summary

    Across the busy streets of Dunwall, fog drifted in from the river. The Wrenhaven was never far from people’s minds, and it seemed it did not like to be forgotten. At high tide, no-one could.

    Walking along the embankment by Olaskir Bridge, Corvo checked his watch. He had twenty minutes to get across the water and find the restaurant the Agency had named in his latest contract. The Chamber was an upscale place in the City, and anyone even vaguely familiar with the less reputable part of Rudshore knew that it belonged to the Whalers and their boss, a man named Daud.

    Summary

    They met after the great lunar wars, where she had been left with no one and nothing to come home to, in a healing world that considered her wanting.
    They had taken her in. Even though they were not human-not her people; they were bound by unshakable horrors.
    They cared for her; loved her, and she had loved them in return.

    One though, differently than the others.

    Ten years later, a threat to the family-her family, brings her back into dangers she had never thought she'd face again, and horrors of the like she had hoped she had left worlds away. Accompanied by an ambitious man, like no other, that she had only ever dreamed she would see again.

    But she is a woman now, not the child that had fled and left her life behind.

    Summary

    Mycroft Holmes was a renowned novelist. He and the charming policeman Greg Lestrade met each other at a party in April, 1930 for the Oxford v Cambridge boat race.
    If you know the tale of Edward Morgan Forster and Bob Buckingham, this would be no surprise to you---They fell in love.

    This story is loosely based on some facts of Morgan's life, and I promise a very happy ending XD
