    Summary

    Chicago, 1929
    America's experiment with banning the sale of alcohol has largely failed. However, the laws are still in effect, meaning that most people make use of illegal speakeasies to get their fix. Owners of such establishments and illegal liquor distributors are living like kings, but tensions between rival gangs are higher than ever, and threatening to break out into all-out war.

    Enter Eva Mohn, an aspiring singer from a small town who gets more than she bargained for when she takes a gig at an underground speakeasy and meets Christoffer Schistad- bootlegger, skirt chaser, and known associate of infamous crime boss William Magnusson.

    Summary

    I didn’t bother to change names or places, I left them the way they are rather than going through the hassle, but at the same time I’m not going to pretend that this is 100% accurate. But I can say that this is the retelling of fourteen specific days in Howlett Falls in the year 1923. It’s just meant to be a connection between myself and the world around me, and a way to remember those who didn’t survive the fourteen. So I guess I give you, Fourteen Days in Howlett Falls.

    ----

    Arms dealers. FBI agents. Mobs. Assassins. Informants. Bar owners. Dirty cops.

    When all these different people clash within a single city in 1923, things get ugly.

    Summary

    Flug wasn't exactly your average person, but from his perspective, he led a reasonably normal life. Sure, he comes from a distinguished family and works as an inventor of all things, but he wasn't exactly someone you'd see on the streets and go "Look! It's Flug!" He lived the same way any ordinary middle-to-upper-class American did in the 1920s. He worked hard all day and then partied just as, if not harder, at night. Minus the partying, of course. And if you asked him, it was becoming rather dull. It didn't seem as though any fancy jazz club could fill in what his life seemed to be lacking, either. But this was the roaring 20's! Where was the electricity in his life? The adventure? Didn't he deserve some excitement, too? But Mr. Slys soon discovers that you should be careful what you wish for when he befriends a certain man one fateful night and grows fearful that he may have just bitten off more than he can chew.

    Summary

    When Lee met Theodore Marshall, all he expected to get was a client, but what he got was an oddball family with the best moonshine this side of the Mississippi, and a lover who gave new meaning to "puppy-dog eyes."

    A long time ago Lee found that all it took for him to be a bootlegger was to know when to talk, when to shoot, and when to run- but he wasn't running from this, because he'd finally found a family, and he was going to protect them with everything he had.

    Summary

    Prohibition Era, Ebott City: A place where humans and monsters have always existed together with a strained and somewhat fragile peace. Most of the city’s denizens simply want to live out their daily lives in a simple cohabitation. Life, however is rarely so easy. There are five large gangs within the city limits, one of the more powerful ones being made up completely of monsters. The balance of power between the four human mafia gangs and the monster mob is delicate, spurring racism and acts of violence from both sides.
    Frisk, the younger sister of infamous detective Chara Dreemurr, receives an anonymous call with clues to the case against her older brother’s sudden mysterious disappearance. Unable to obtain police assistance, she takes up her brother’s mantle and plunges into the seedy underbelly of Ebott City’s criminal organizations. Each new piece of information only brings about more questions as the web of confusion and deceit is spun around her. Who can she trust in this dangerous game? Will she find Chara before it’s too late or will she become hopelessly entangled in the sinister lifestyles of the mob?

    Summary

    “You do this, you do. You take the things you love
    and tear them apart
    or you pin them down with your body and pretend they're yours.
    So, you kiss him, and he doesn't move, he doesn't
    pull away, and you keep on kissing him. And he hasn't moved,
    he's frozen, and you've kissed him, and he'll never
    forgive you, and maybe now he'll leave you alone.”

    A brutal murder on Christmas Eve abruptly pulls one Detective Nikiforov out of a holiday he was just starting to tolerate, and forces him to come to terms with demons he's been pretending not to see. On that same night, a man walks into a bar and waltzes into his life, lighting a spark that grows into a monster of its own.

    Summary

    “He throws his head back and laughs; and I treat myself for a moment. I let my eyes travel over the lump and hollow of his throat. How I would love to press my lips there, graze my teeth there. I shake my head to clear my mind. Sinner’s thoughts—not that I was a saint.”

    Summary

    The year is 1919, New York City is a mix of bumbling boozeheads and the fellas that make the booze. The place is the Nouveau Riche part of Manhattan, in a townhome belonging to a rich sonovabitch that most New Yorkers avoid like the plague. James Barnes is known by pretty much everyone to be a friend of an Alpha known only as N, an Alpha who happens to be the Alpha of the criminal underbelly of New York. The current Chief of Police has N to thank for his promotion, after all. Those seen entering Barnes's home are always some sort of mobsters.
    On the night of October 28th, 1919, the very day that Congress passed the Volstead Act that began the nationwide Prohibition, at half-past ten, James Barnes was seen entering his home with a very pretty blonde Omega on his arm.
    Neighbors shook their heads and let their curtains shut. It had only been a matter of time, they said. They'd see her leave in the morning in the same clothes she came in and no doubt she'd walk with her head high, the little tart.
    But the gossip mills wouldn't get to comment on the rumpled state of her clothes the next morning. No, sir. Neighbors sourly reported that by the looks of it, that bastard James Barnes hired a housekeeper.

    Summary

    The resets keep happening, but Papyrus is gone. Nearly six years of grief have warped Sans, causing him to risk his soul with self-destructive behavior and making him all but unrecognizable to his old friends. Any day now, he expects a reset that will bring him far enough back in time to reunite with his brother and erase his sins. In the meantime, he'll distract himself with Muffet's new call girl...

    You need a lot of money, right now. Unlike the majority of humans in the slums of New Ebott, you don't have any anti-monster prejudice, and you're kinky, submissive and enjoy sex. You've heard someone like you can do very well for herself, catering to monsters. Now here you are with your first client, a skeleton monster in a suit offering you a drink from a hip flask...

    Undertale gangster AU with a 1930s-era American aesthetic, essentially because I like the clothes. Status updates and story chatter at http://neroli9.tumblr.com. Also, come chat with other APJFM fans at the APJFM Discord server!

    Summary

    Edge twitches, his soul skipping a beat, but before the tone could die out, he is by the desk, pressing it against his ear. “Private Detective Edge Serif, how can I help you?”

     

    “My name is Blue Fontaine,” a light voice with British accent says on the other side of the line, sounding incredibly serious. In the background, he can hear something that sounded like quiet sobbing. “I am calling on the behalf of Sir Razz Gaster of Duskshire Manor. We have heard of your abilities and we require your assistance. Sir Razz’s husband have been found dead.”
    ...
    A late night, after yet another unfruitful day with no work, Detective Edge Serif receives a phonecall from the countryside. There seems to have been a murder.
