    Summary

    There's a messed up arrangement between 20-something Aaron Davis and his boss, New York's crime lord, Kingpin. A reoccurring 'scratch my back and I'll scratch yours' type of deal that sends Aaron on a long-term guilt trip every morning after, swearing it'll never happen again. Until it does.

    Shame and disgust aside, it works.

    Until Fisk's itch grows into something that takes two to scratch.

    At least five minutes pass before Jeff pulls himself together. Well, enough that he finally stops retching and takes a few deep gulps of air. Slowly, he stands and turns to face Fisk, wearing the most miserable grimace Aaron's ever seen.

    "Look," Jeff pauses, drags his hands over his face. "Whatever...arrangements, you've set up with him is between you two. But, Mr. Fisk, sir..."

    His head shakes side to side and his usually steady, confident voice teeters to a plea.

    "Please, please. Leave. Me. Out of it."

    Fisk's deceptively round face hardens with a challenging smirk.

    "And if I say you don't have a choice?"

    A/N: Just give it a go? I'm only making this 80's/90's AU for the cars, the era appropriate bs, and the aesthetic (the music I mention is not going to match the era, I'm sorry) because honestly I like it and I'm mainly writing this to get it out of my head so just sit back, relax, and enjoy this fluffy gay feel-good story.

    Summary

    "I want to go find me real dad," said John.
    Paul quite nearly choked on his toast. The keys kept twirling.

     

     

    Paul McCartney turned seventeen years old in the summer of 1992, and he only wanted two things out of the holiday: to play music, and to laze about, at least until he had to go to work.

    This plan worked out excellently for him until the first day of July when John Lennon turned up on his doorstep. Holding the set of keys to a brand-new motorbike, and with the intent to track down his long-lost biological father. After a bit of resistance, Paul went along. Because how could he not?

    Thus began their thirty-day road trip across Great Britain: a journey that changed not only Paul’s perception of the world at large but his perception of himself and the people he thought he knew inside and out.

    Summary

    Sansa’s skin is incredibly flushed, feeling hot to his touch. He places both hands on her face, one thumb caressing her cheek. 

    “I’m going to kiss you now.” 

    He’s surprised by the gruffness of his voice, and by the fact he’s not asking for permission. He doesn’t need to. Her hand is tightly grasping his shirt and he’s aware of how wide her pupils are. She wants him to kiss her again, he knows, recognizes the desperate expression in her eyes as one he’s seen on himself many times. The thought that she might be as affected by this as he is excites him.

     

     

    90s AU. Jon and Sansa have a moment. Too bad she's engaged to someone else. Too bad he's in love with her.

    Summary

    «C’è questa cosa che fai» dice Alec, esasperato. «Questo potere che hai che ti fa sembrare indistruttibile».
    «Lo sai che non è vero» dice Magnus. Il suo respiro è caldo contro il mento di Alec.
    «Lo so» ribatte Alec. «Ma comunque… ci sono delle volte in cui non ne sono così sicuro».

    1992, New York, una città che continua ad aggrapparsi a sentimenti venati dalle tensioni della Guerra Fredda. Alec Lightwood è un Corporate – un supereroe che lavora su commissione – cerca di barcamenarsi tra un’identità segreta, la necessità di aggrapparsi ad una parvenza di vita normale e il fatto che i vigilante continuano a comparire ammazzati nei bassifondi senza un’apparente spiegazione.
    Le cose non possono che peggiorare quando Magnus – un giornalista investigativo – inizia a rimuovere la maschera che Alec si è attentamente costruito… e poi c’è quel misterioso vigilante con il potere della psicocinesi che continua ad apparire ovunque Alec vada – Alec non riesce proprio a tirare il fiato.
    A Cold Night for Good Deeds è una AU sui superereoi, slow-burn e neonoir, che parla di identità, verità e innamorarsi senza conoscere il vero nome di una persona.

    Только одно оправдание было у Густава Ивановича: ничего этого Густав Иванович не хотел.

    «Бардо» в буддизме – состояние «между», буквально «между двумя», как правило, имеется в виду «между жизнью и смертью», «сном и бодрствованием» и так далее.

    Summary

    A modern AU set in 1995 where Geralt of Rivia is an ex soldier exiled from the army under Don't Ask Don't Tell, and Jaskier owns a gay bar. Geralt stumbles up the street when his truck breaks down, and into Jaskier's life. Hijinks ensue. This fic was created during Pride, and I have done my best to include real gay history in it. It deals with themes like loneliness, found family, being closeted, and coming out. I have done a ton of research for this fic, which has been a blast. I have even interviewed a bouncer from an actual gay bar for source material.

    A huge thanks to Stressedspidergirl, who not only nudged me into writing this fic, but has been a constant source of inspiration, challenger, and wonderful co-creator. It would not be the same fic without you, thank you!! You're amazing!!

    Please note that this story can be pretty intense at times, especially in later chapters. It deals with (internalized) homophobia, depression, trauma, broken families, AIDS, and a whole host of other topics that can be uncomfortable or triggering. There is also, however, fluff, deep family bonds, humor, and smut ahead. Enjoy!
