    Summary


    James Daniel Kogane has only ever loved one woman. The one who left.



    «She was perfect in every aspect, the rebel archetype of everything a girl who’s about to become a woman shouldn’t be; delicious in leather pants, dark lipstick and purple eyeshadow. She rode a bike and devoured lollipops, she listened to rock’n’roll and smoked cigarettes behind the school building.»

    Summary

    Cape Cod, Massachusetts

    August, 1981

     

    Takashi Shirogane has never kissed a boy before.

    Keith remembers this fact only after Shiro presses his back into sand, still sun-warm. His lips are dry, rough, hungry against Keith’s own. They taste of salt, from the ocean, and sunlight, and when Shiro bites his way into his mouth, he tastes of the cotton candy that Keith had bought him from the wharf earlier that afternoon.

    But Takashi Shirogane has never kissed a boy before.

    Summary

    The shower of rain was never enough to shed the blood covering his clothes, and the clothes were never enough to cover the demon crawling on his back, latching on with leaching teeth and razor claws.

    Gintoki clutched his sword in hand, staring up at the grey shower falling rapidly from the sky with an unreadable expression. But it was easy to predict the stone-cold colour and the lifelessness floating within them. Hijikata stared at his back, still, grasping his gun tightly without the will to speak.

    Together, their thoughts were a blank page - unready to be filled with mixed emotions and the pain of wondering whether they could look each other in the eye again.

    Summary

    Behind the suits and polished exterior of his businessman persona, Ben was really just a huge eighties nerd. He grew up with his parents playing the likes of David Bowie and Duran Duran constantly, whilst glued to his Nintendo.

    Rey loved eighties music and movies but anyone who shared those interests was usually over the age of forty. So when Finn had told her that it was in fact an eighties themed party they would be attending, costumes expected, she was delighted, happy to partake in a rare Saturday night out.

    Both fond of an era that didn't belong to them, will these dorks find each other? Get your neon out and dancing shoes on - A Modern AU with eighties flair.

    Summary

    The year is 1985. In the wake of tragedy, Julia (14) and Monika (6) Beilschmidt have been separated from their family in East Berlin and end up in a foster care agency in Vienna. They don't stay for long and are soon whisked away by the Edelsteins - a family of bakers from Salzburg. Julia is thrilled to start living an awesome, flashy western life away from the DDR and indulge in all of the "typical" luxuries she'd been barred from. Well, maybe her life in Salzburg isn't so awesome or flashy or typical, because not only is she overly worried about caring for Monika and remaking herself, but she's stuck living with a difficult foster brother who couldn't be any more opposite. Roderich (13) happens to be a classical music prodigy, with all the pretense that entails. Not to say he doesn't have his own challenges, what with being on performance hiatus and the onset of puberty. Coming from different worlds, Julia and Roderich wonder if it's possible for them to make a sibling dynamic work for however long the girls stay. However, given time and a few adventures, the unlikely siblings slowly come to understand what it means to be a family, to grow up, and come of age in a world that can make a kid feel at odds and ends.
