    Summary

    Viktor has been a time traveler since he turned 15. His father warned him about it — how he would wake up in a different time or place, spend a day or two before falling back right into the moment he left. It happened less to those who were happy, but Viktor forgot that detail quickly. On the eve of his fifth consecutive Grand Prix, Viktor travels to 1936 Japan, the furthest from home he’s ever traveled. Thankfully, a kind and handsome man comes to his rescue. Yuuri and the rest of the Fujimura's take him in as one of their own. Viktor, for once, doesn't travel. But the family curse that has given him everything he wants can easily take it away just as quickly.

    Summary

    Building off of Artsy Hobbitses' Humaformers AU.

    Just after the Great War, the Quintessons invaded Earth and enslaved the human race. They would hold sway for twenty-five years, give or take, during which they performed experiments on the world, its people, and harvested both for resources.

    In a war-scarred London, a man named Victor Prentiss remembers what it means to have hope.

    Content warnings are per chapter, but general CWs are violence, trauma, death, and nonconsensual human experimentation.

    Summary

    New York City. 1930.

    It’s a dark, dangerous place. Filled with criminals and scum. It’s not uncommon to hear about a murder, but this one was particularly mysterious.

    You, the fresh faced Detective Camilla DeVille are hungry to solve this one, unwilling to allow anything to get into your way.

    Unless that anything is the beautiful and seductive Alcina Dimitrescu, the lead singer of Miss D and the Pallboys who also happens to be a suspect in the murder.

    Great.

    Summary

    To start off his year of travel and liaison with a life away from work, Noriaki Kakyoin decided it was time to venture further out of the country, settling to take a week in the Swiss mountains to relax, unwind, and paint.

    The life of the idle rich escapes him, he had never grasped quite how they managed to balance the expensive trips across the globe having never of worked, and what they exactly did with their time.

    He had hoped his opening week away would be peaceful; he did not count however, on the cast of characters that were similarly escaping to the mountains, to be so intriguing. To have so many secrets to hide, and pasts for Noriaki to uncover.

    And when in the midst of the forced community, someone steps out of line, Noriaki becomes particularly drawn in by one man in the cohort. One who dresses in rich, well-tailored suits, and has dark ebony hair. Who acts cold one moment, and invites him to drink the next.

    It does not take long for Noriaki to realise, his stay at the lodge will not be at all how he envisioned it.

    Summary

    “Zhao Yunlan. Archaeologist, adventurer, and a professional treasure hunter.” Zhao Yunlan gave him his most charming smile. It worked, usually, at least on all the aunties at the market – surely it could work on impossibly pretty men, too? And the man was staring at Yunlan a little too intensely, although that could be because he did throw someone out of the window… 

    His future husband blinked. “You’re the grave robber the Curator is always complaining about.”

    “I am not a grave robber.” Zhao Yunlan protested. “But, yeah, he would probably call me that.” 

    “Shen Wei,” his future husband introduced himself, extending a hand towards Zhao Yunlan. “I’m the Head Librarian here.”

    Summary

    Upon further inspection, there was a gleam in the stranger’s eyes. “Darling,” he purred, unrecognizable whether the lilt came from alcohol or interest, “I think you and I are of the same kind.”

    The same kind. The kind parents warned their children about, the kind that was deemed morally wrong. Already floating in the clouds – inebriated on liquor, nicotine and the man’s dazzling smile, Jongwoo could not bring himself to care about the implications.

    --

    Or: November of 1929. Yoon Jongwoo, cunning private detective encounters an enticing stranger, the rendez-vous leading into indecency quicker than expected. The morning after, letters upon letters arrive at his door step, invitations to work a case for somebody. For Seo Moonjo, notoriously ruthless criminal, for a person who couldn't be more dfferent to himself. At least that's what Jongwoo needed to believe.

    Summary

    Autumn 1935, Manston Airfield.
    Eleven Squadron have been chosen to share their knowledge and wisdom with the Jagdwaffe of Germany's Luftwaffe. A move to strengthen the somewhat shaky relations between the two countries.
    Eleven Squadron, however, prefers hijinks and shenanigans over being the face of the Royal Air Force, and so their first meeting with the Jagdwaffe does not go how Group Captain Haines wishes.
    A move that leaves their visiting German's questioning how the next six months are going to unfold, or even if they can trust the raggedy crew to fly a plane let alone take anything seriously.
    With their time together starting shakily, a shockwave hits the little village of Manston when a murder is committed and a finger is pointed at one of the German pilots, the scars of the Great War not yet forgotten or healed.
    Trying to clear their comrades' name soon becomes more complex when he too shows up dead in a suspected revenge attack, and it no longer becomes a crime, but a political mess that could threaten war.

    Summary

    Daena Duleep-Singh Targarioni (her birth family was Armenian. Really.) adventurer, Sikh, and adopted heiress of the Punjab and the largest estate in England, veteran of the Women's Battalion of Death and the Russian Civil War, has a new friend in a nice club in Old Shanghai, International Concession. Her dear bosom friends and war comrades, her Lieutenant in the Death Battalion, the Kuban Cossack Valentina Igorovna Syromakha, and her former enemy, the crossdressing Jewish Unteroffizier of the Imperial German Army and talented engineer, Margrete Hoffmeyer, are both a little worried. Their Princess' new squeeze is very pretty, and talking about some plan to put the deposed Emperor of China back on a new throne. It's called Manchukuo, and her name is Yoshiko Kawashima.

    But can /they/ stop her, when Daena doesn't even want to listen to the ghost of her Grandmother? Visenya Targaryen would very much like to remind Daena that a Valyrian Stormsinger and Bloodmage has more important things to do than card games with her latest lesbian affair. Where are the heirs!? (Daena would rather fly the latest crack Seversky monoplane and romance a cute girl, that's where!)

    Summary

    To mix a facsimile of blood for use onstage, calculate the following for the needed volume:

    2 cups of corn syrup (for viscosity and color)
    1 cup of water (for balancing texture)
    10 tablespoons of corn flour (for appropriate murk)
    10 teaspoons of red food dye (for color)
    10 drops of blue food dye (for color)
    A squeeze of concentrated mint (for taste, optional)

    Does not stain, washes off the skin with soap and water and most fabrics with gentle laundering. Smears well. Intensely colored. Stays wet. Safe to eat.

    Will Graham, baritone, steps into a performance season that holds more for him in its jaws than he ever could have expected.

    Summary

    The world in 1936 is ablaze with political intrigue, revolution and a shift in power...

    In the universe of Kaiserreich, anything goes in the equilibrium of human politics, from the socialist zeal and vigor of Syndicalism to the grip of the iron fist of National Populism. Nations change on a monthly basis, economies are stricken with collapses, power drives the hunger for bloodshed. This is truly a time to be alive, in not necessarily a good way...

    Through the perspective of different characters in their respective nations at varying times during Kaiserreich's timeline, you can realize how captivating its universe really is, from the grueling hardship to the triumphant victory, and everything in between.

    (For now, the series focuses on an irreverent American journalist and his intrepid escapades on the eve of civil war...)
