    Summary

    "A victim finding the darkest form of justice is driven by the thrill to kill. I don't think they have the chance to be redeemed...??" She was teetering over with doubt from her words—questioning her claim for a moment.

    "My dear, you can't spell 'Redemption' without spilling some 'Red'—no?" chortling, he tapped her nose.

    Summary

    He wasn't going to survive the night, a voice in the back of Zoya's mind whispered. She was going to lose him, as she lost all the others.

    Held tight in Alina's arms, the baby looked tiny and deathly pale. He was barely breathing, barely moving, but when Alina bent to press her lips to his forehead, he brightened. He opened his eyes, looked at her for a long moment, and screamed. The sound was otherworldy. He was stronger than he looked.

    It took all the strength Zoya had left to call out, so weakly, "Alina." She held her arms out, manicured fingers grasping at the air. "I want my son."

    A Prohibition-Era Southern Gothic AU filled with mystery beasts and dirty doings. Mind the tags!

    Summary

    Often folks would ask, upon learning where I’m from, is whether the Midwest “really is all that ‘wild.’” I used to shrug it off as mere East Coast bourgeois ignorance. But I’d soon realize that what they really wanted was a sense of my survival skills. For the underbelly of New York City, battleground between police and gangs and moonshiners, was wilder than anyone’s dreams—and darker than anyone’s nightmares.

    Summary

                  The year is 1922 and a speakeasy called The Patron is thriving in its element. But it wasn't always like this. A year ago, it had been in disrepair and ready to vanish into obscurity. But Patton Moore wasn't ready to shut his doors just yet.
                  The year of 1921 was one change after the other. The Kingsley twins returned and shined as musicians, familiar faces guarded the doors and bar... Calling in the cavalry meant bringing in an old friend for help, and mob bosses aren't the first thought when it comes to investing in a bar. So what happened?
                  What happened to a place that was lousy with misfortune to make it change?
                  Pull up a chair. Sit down. We'll pour you a drink and tell you a story.

    Summary

    Moving to New Orleans to start up her rehabilitation hotel for criminals hasn't been all berries for Charlie, especially if everybody thinks you're some Dumb Dora with a complete horseshit plan.

    And it's another jam that she's starting to get stuck on Alastor, the charming yet eccentric radio host next door who's never fully dressed without a smile.

    But she's all smiles too, and that's made her out to be quite the dish to Alastor - in all senses of the word - and boy, was he ready to be entertained.

    Summary

    Speakeasies and roadsters, prohibition and organized crime. New York is no stranger to the furthest reaches of man’s desire. Some want fame and will do anything they can to get it, others want money. Some just want to solve the damn problem. It isn’t all so linear, and it’s hardly a piece of cake. There’s peril, romance, and a very fine line between the two.

    A.K.A - A 1920s Newsies AU; Davey’s a detective/investigative journalist, Jack’s an artist by day and a performer by night, and Spot and Race are rival gang leaders at each other’s throats.

    Summary

    Down-on-his-luck private eye Eddie Valiant gets hired to investigate the acts in Prohibition-era Chicago after an assignment in Brooklyn left him with not an inkling left, but he’s soon in the mix with a pair of whiskey guzzlers who may do more harm than good for his next black-and-white case.

    When an idealistic gambling and sax swingin’ demon and bass-plucking wolf accidentally witness a gangland shooting, they quickly board a train to Florida disguised as the two newest (and homeliest) members of a jazz band.

    Their cover is perfect…until a lovelorn singer swings her way for the sax, an ancient penny pincher falls for a wolf in sheep’s clothing, and the king of the city is intent to keep his crown and wants to put anyone who stands in his way on ice for good.

    Summary

    The summer of 1928 would be one that Giorno Giovanna would never forget. A time of pure ignorant bliss, letting himself fall into his desires that came in the form of Guido Mista. No matter their difference in status and class, no matter their gender, the romance that blossomed between them would be remembered well.

    No matter how short such a summer would last, the melody of their love would linger on as loudly as the speakeasies themselves.
