    Summary

    A loosely inspired Little Mermaid AU involving children both curious and rebellious, a very unusual confidant, a dastardly plot against two kingdoms, and a tragic love story from ten years ago. (As created under the name tornrose24 on tumblr. Somehow I'm insane enough to attempt this idea).

    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.

    AU set in the 1930s-1940s. Black Hat, Inc. is an underground corporation infamous across the world for the selling of its weapons of mass destruction. Many deem it a myth, that such a powerful mafia could never exist—much less thrive in a world of utter economic stagnation. Yet, in times of desperation, others are willing to believe anything. Someone, something has to take blame for the world’s suffering. But, whom, or what?

    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.

    Summary

    "The murderer is with us-on the train now . . ."

    Just after midnight and only halfway along its journey, the famous Hogwarts Express is stopped in its tracks by a snowdrift. By morning, the millionaire Tom Riddle lies dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside. One of his fellow passengers must be the murderer.

    Isolated by the storm, Private Detective Hercule Poirot must find the killer among a dozen of the dead man's enemies, before the murderer decides to strike again. Will it be the graceful governess- Hermione Granger? The aggressive ministry official- Ron Weasley? Or one of the many other characters joined together by a simple holiday? In a world of magic and murder mystery, there will be lots of surprises to be found.

    A re-write of one of my favourite novels, Murder On The Orient Express by Agatha Christie, I hope you enjoy this just as much as I am enjoying writing it.

    See the end-notes for the full list of what characters from Harry Potter are filling which roles from the novel.

    Summary

    Prohibition Era, Ebott City: A place where humans and monsters have always existed together with a strained and somewhat fragile peace. Most of the city’s denizens simply want to live out their daily lives in a simple cohabitation. Life, however is rarely so easy. There are five large gangs within the city limits, one of the more powerful ones being made up completely of monsters. The balance of power between the four human mafia gangs and the monster mob is delicate, spurring racism and acts of violence from both sides.
    Frisk, the younger sister of infamous detective Chara Dreemurr, receives an anonymous call with clues to the case against her older brother’s sudden mysterious disappearance. Unable to obtain police assistance, she takes up her brother’s mantle and plunges into the seedy underbelly of Ebott City’s criminal organizations. Each new piece of information only brings about more questions as the web of confusion and deceit is spun around her. Who can she trust in this dangerous game? Will she find Chara before it’s too late or will she become hopelessly entangled in the sinister lifestyles of the mob?
