    Summary

    Historical/Human AU. It's 1975, and the entire country is obsessed with spies, cover-ups and assassination plots. Except Lapis Lazuli, who'd much rather not relive her shameful past or confront her dark secrets. When a mysterious hit squad targets her for assassination, however, she's forced to ally with a nosy congressional aide and a shadowy group of women determined to expose the truth and seek justice on their own terms.

    Summary

    1935. The Great Depression ravages the world. Fascism threatens Europe. Millions languish in poverty and despair. The nations stand on the brink of ruin or rebirth.

    Aspiring writer Jughead Jones navigates through the perilous economic and political climate of the 1930s. Veronica Lodge's wealthy father battles Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal. Betty Cooper tries to tone down the Riverdale Register's rabid isolationism just a little bit. Cliff Blossom disperses striking laborers with a little help from the Pinkerton Detective Agency and grapples with the fact that his son Jason is a Communist. Archie Andrews still can't make a decision to save his life.

    And they are all about to find themselves thrust into the shadows of conspiracy, treason, class struggle, and war.

    Or the Great Depression AU no one asked for.

    Summary

    Take History. Add Dragons. Stir until a Genius makes friends with them and things explode. Take the resulting stock of Hiccup and tamed dragons and set it to simmering in 1040 AD, in the Scottish Hebrides. Add more Kings, Emperors, Romans, Vikings, Conquerors, Spies, Warriors, Thieves, Knights and Nobles, to taste. Take cover, and sit back to watch the fireworks.

    In Real Life, 1040 was the tail end of the Viking Age; Europe was 50 years from the First Crusade; the Catholic and Greek Orthodox Churches have not yet formally split, William the Conqueror is a frightened teenager in Normandy, the Byzantine Empire is collapsing after a revival under one of their great emperors, and the great Viking Harald Hardrada is a Varangian mercenary there, while the Caliphates are having a rough time from the new Seljuk Empire and their own internal tensions. The most corrupt Pope in history holds Rome, the Reconquista of Spain is underway after the collapse of the Caliphate of Cordoba, and the Norse religion is a pale shadow of what it once was, hanging on around the Baltic Sea, Iceland, Greenland... and the Hebrides.

    And into that heady mix, there is now Hiccup and Berk.

    Yeah, history won't know what hit it.

    Summary

    No discussion of Steve Rogers would be complete without the anecdote about him jumping on a grenade at training camp. What popular memory seems to have forgotten is that both of the Brooklyn Boys had a penchant for jumping on grenades. Bucky's bombs just happened to be of the more metaphorical variety.
    ----
    A Bucky-centric attempt to fill in the “deleted scenes” from Captain America: The First Avenger - what actually happened at Azzano, the rest of the bar scene, and life in the Howling Commandos.

    Summary

    Some matches are made in heaven, some in hell: and some, quite rare and quite peculiar, are made on earth.

    Knowing the King of Time adds many complications to Shiro's life; on the other hand, the talented young exorcist shows a remarkable knack for complicating the life of Prince Samael as well. Side by side, they stand before an uncertain future as... as what, really? Friends? Partners in crime? Colleagues, enemies, soulmates...? Or players in a game more vast and complex than either of them could have guessed?

    (I own nothing, just borrowing from Katou Kazue.)

    Summary

    It’s the autumn of 1941, war is raging in Europe, German U-boats are raiding Allied convoys in the Atlantic, the Luftwaffe is bombing English cities, and the cryptographers at Bletchley Park are working feverishly to decode their enemies' encrypted communications. One should consider this challenge and distraction enough for capricious codebreaker Sherlock Holmes. But the true enigmas are yet waiting to be deciphered: an unbreakable code, a strange murder, and the appearance of Surgeon Captain John H. Watson of the Royal Navy.

    Summary

    ´Always be polite, no matter the situation`, her mother taught her. She looks at the young man, looking at the cup and back at the young man again. “It’s true what they say… blondes are not really the smartest one around…”
    “The rope, Daniel,” sighs the Lieutenant, “the rope… under the promise to keep your hands by yourself.”
    “I won’t dismiss a cup of fresh tea.”
    With a nod of the Lieutenant the young man unties the rope that holds her hands together, but still he keeps as much distant as possible.

    Summary

    Coiffeur and stylist Freddie Morgan exchanges gossip with a tabloid editor in a cheap hotel room which he has transformed into a salon to service the wedding of the season. He develops something on an obsession with the ginger mullet of a certain groomsman and conspires to get the unsuspecting Simcoe under his scissors and, perhaps, his sheets.

    A not-quite-romance for people who are not-quite-royalists.
