    Summary

    Burn Notice au based off the song Nevermind by Nanci Griffith—re-Harland Howard.

    Slow burn love story, 1931 dust bowl/fruit pickers AU.

    I had to finagle it a little bit to make it work (Charlotte is Fi's niece, not Michael's for example, in the original song, it's a daughter, not a niece). As always, I've made Charlie a trans little girl, not a boy.

    Summary

    “Sam, please don’t allow this to be in vain. If you love me, you’ll go.” A drop of water fell onto Sam’s hands, and in a bout of hysterical hope, he thought it had begun raining, that their problems were solved—but then he realized that Erik was crying, and the gravity of Erik’s resolution finally bore down on him in entirety.

    Summary

    In the spring of 1930, Wilder Mayer's stepfather dies, and Wild is summoned back from Agricultural School in Lubbock to take the reins of the Meyer-Platter farm just outside of Lea, Texas. Over the course of the next five years, Wild must negotiate not just the politics of his little farm community, but also an increasingly mystical and complex relationship with the old town church, closed for many years and a source of mystery within Lea.

    The worst storms of the Dust Bowl are raging across the country, but they always seem to miraculously pass by, leaving Lea's farms unscathed. Instead, Lea is subject to strange happenings: the birth of Wild's witchy daughter Iscah, the rise of the cult that calls itself the Church of the Redeemed Abandoned, and a series of rare but gruesome murders, culminating in an attack on the heart of Wild's family itself -- and a final encounter with the church that has protected Lea for so long.

    Summary

    Orpheus was a poor boy, with a rhythm and a rhyme.
    Eurydice was a hungry young girl, no stranger to hard times.

    She was but a wilting lily petal on the river they called Styx.
    She'd waited for the one she loved too long, so now she drifts.

    Orpheus was a sunflower, as bright as summer's day.
    Always leaning towards the light, he saw the world his way.

    When she called out to him he came, to see what she had done.
    Orpheus was a sunflower. Eurydice was his sun.

    Summary

    Silver heard their sighs of relief-- Barlow's small chuckle, Manderly's faint groan, accompanied by Flint's grunt as he rolled out of his seat and stood by the cockpit's window.

    Silver watched as Flint cupped his palms behind his back, feet planted and gaze steady on the sea of stars before them.

    He glanced at Silver, a wry smile graced his lips, then disappeared like the blip of a satellite signal. "Not bad for a pilot who's never broken through the atmosphere."

    Summary

    Town to town, train to train, tent to tent.

    By 1932, the dust had begun to blow and the jobs were gone.

    Anonymity was a byproduct of looking for work, which made it both necessary and convenient.

    Stiles had enough secrets of his own to know to look the other way when he saw something that shouldn’t be possible.

    The ghost of a tail giving enough balance to disembark a moving train.

    Near silent Latin whispered on the edge of a tent encampment.

    A flash of burning eyes.

    He had more than enough to worry about without adding the oddities of others, and besides- having unusually sharp teeth certainly didn’t make a man worse than the ones running from the wife and kids they couldn’t feed.

    So Stiles kept his observations to himself. He kept his everything to himself.

    Until he met a man. One with eyes so blue they seemed to glow- and then they did.

    Stiles tried to look away, but for the first time he was stopped.

    “Don’t be like that sweetheart. Aren’t you curious?”

    Summary

    Ecology, agriculture, man, all in ruins. Dust eats away, even at itself, cannibalistic and cruel. Not like the sand on the shore. Not nearly as innocuous.
    Only amidst the chaos of a world in ruins could they finally find their way to each other.

    Summary

    "It’s funny sometimes - what a man can get used to over a lifetime. Getting used to a job, a wife, a child, hell even the weather - that’s easy stuff. Anybody could do that. Those things are expected. It's the unexpected that's hard. A sudden death in the family, war, lost love - those things catch a man off guard. Those things take time to get used to. But something a man never thinks he’ll experience - something a man never expects at all - that is an almost impossible thing to get used to. And that is exactly what the dust is to Jon."

    A quick peek into Jon and Sansa's life in the Dust Bowl/Great Depression.

    Summary

    A few scenes from an incomplete fic. Aesthetic heavily influenced by tv show "Carnivale".

    The last few months of Bucky's life have been one devastating blow after the other. Work is hard to find at the best of times, let alone when you're missing an arm, and just when things seem their darkest the carnival rolls into town...

    Summary

    He comes home and Sansa is exactly as Bran had written: different. She’d been quiet growing up, at least to Jon, but the stony, steel-spined woman who lets him hug her on the dusty porch and whisper out his guilt into her skin is leagues away from the girl he left behind.

    The girl he left behind to keep safe.

    (Those Targaryens. They’ll bite down until they taste blood.)

    When they were younger, she’d always looked at him like he was a betrayal. To what, Jon was never sure. Her mother, who loathed Jon as evidence that her husband was a flawed, mortal man. Her father, whose honour outside of Jon’s existence was beyond reproach. Her siblings, who all treated him as the brother that Sansa never did.

    Now she looks at him like the betrayed. “Welcome home,” she says with a brittle voice, but she touches the scar that runs through his eyebrow, a gift from the oil fields.

    Summary

    In the early 1930s, severe drought struck the Great Plains. Unanchored soil picked up by the prairie winds would turn in to massive clouds of dust, covering everything in it's path. It became known as The Dust Bowl, the worst man-made ecological disaster in human history.

    Asami Sato, on her way to Chicago for business purposes, is delayed in a small Dust Bowl town when a duster rolls in. She comes to care for the townspeople she meets, especially the blue-eyed farmhand who helps her when she's injured. Unfortunately, in the small town of Republic City, Oklahoma, where Asami finds herself, residents and visitors alike will be witness to the worst storm yet, known as Black Sunday.
