    Summary

    The year is 1994. The Iron Curtain has come down, the oligarchs have begun their rise to power, and Kyril Ren, a powerful member of the infamous crime syndicate Solntsevskaya Bratva, has been given a job: hunt down an estranged uncle who has been snitching to the FBI.

    Irena, nicknamed Rey by her adoptive father Luke, is a Krav Maga instructor in New York who has finally been able to obtain her original birth certificate from Russia. Turns out she was born in a little village named Vershinino, but if she wants to know more than that… she’s going to have to go there herself.

     

    TL;DR: What up here's a Russian Mafia AU.

    Summary

    Shiro is a fresh-faced cop placed in the worst precinct in the city where kids are constantly cycling in and out of the criminal justice system. He catches Keith joyriding after stealing from a liquor store, chilling out on the edge of a cliff overlooking the ocean and sitting on the hood, beer in hand. They talk and Shiro lets him off, saying that he sees himself in the kid and hopes he gets his act together. He doesn’t, but probably because it’s an excuse to see Shiro again.

    Summary

    I was waiting on a moment

    But the moment never came

    All the billion other moments

    Were just slipping all away

    A retelling of the original 1972 manga (with other Good Shit from various other adaptions/canons that we like), but taking place in the 90s. Or perhaps there lies more to our story...?

    (The mikimiko isn't a side pairing in this, it's in your face.)

    Summary

    (Hiraeth (Welsh) – a homesickness for a home to which you cannot return, a home which maybe never was; the nostalgia, the yearning, the grief for lost places of your past.)

    The Yugoslav Wars of the 1990s: welcome to hell.

    As Rey grows up in a country which technically isn't at war, even though its consequences are felt all around them, she forms a strong bond with Kylo, an odd young man whose personal involvement in the conflict may run much deeper than it seems. Over the years, as political plots thicken and the war rages on, Rey must learn the difference between idealism and doing the right thing, discovering the price of personal happiness.

    Also known as "that squatting Kylo in a tracksuit fic you didn't know you wanted." Comes with lots of swearing, East European shenanigans and references to some pretty cool music.

    ‘Because–’ Yoongi starts, but realises his tone is loud and harsh and that’s giving Namjoon exactly what he wants. So he takes a deep breath and another elongated sip of whiskey before starting again. ‘Look he's a classical musician, right? They're always dickheads. Just because their parents paid through the nose to get someone to teach them “Every Good Boy Deserves Food”. You can’t just buy talent. Fucking wankers.’

    'Wait, didn't you use to take piano lessons?' Namjoon smirks.

    'Yes, but I’m a wanker with talent.'

    Namjoon nods. ‘I know. I’ve walked in on you too many times. Impressive.’

    As spring turns into summer, school band Cotton Candy unexpectedly loses its singer and the members are forced to look for a new vocalist. Six boys find one in the form of the promiscuous pink haired boy Park Jimin who makes a home in their hearts and finally finds a place he belongs.
