    Summary

    In a catastrophic post-1929 Boston, the stock market crash and violent, unpredictable weather have dissolved the young nation known as America. Replacing it, a new lawless world rises, the nation-state of Independence, run by elite families who have the cash and clout to keep their grip on the survivors of the Crash. Andrew Minyard and Renee Walker, private eyes and owners of the Fleet Foxes Detective Agency, are the law, solving crimes in exchange for making their livelihood. When Andrew meets Neil Josten, jazz singer and objectively handsome man, he feels himself falling- into the realm of a new mystery, one that he isn't entirely sure he's prepared to solve, and a case that could radically change Independence forever.

    Summary

    Being a poor man in the Roaring Twenties was tough. It was even tougher if you were a Chicago Korean. Struggling to get by at a prestigious Midwest college, Seunghyun thought he knew that better than anybody – at least until one boozy, jazz-filled night in a South Side alley: the night he met the low-born and high-priced Kwon Jiyong. And then he realized he knew nothing at all.

    *With Prohibition in full swing and the Chicago Outfit poised to take control of the city in a storm of political corruption and gunfire, a chemistry student and a rich man’s plaything fight to survive and thrive amid the throes of unrequited love, racial tension, and the chaos accompanying the rise of Al Capone.*

    Summary

    The Great Gatsby AU no one asked for. I'm basically working paragraph by paragraph from the source text. If I finish this it will literally be a novel, so here's hoping. I started this in August hoping to finish it before publishing, but it turns out having readers keeps me from abandoning something for months at a time. Feedback welcomed although you'll have to take up some of the flaws with Fitzgerald and not me.

    Summary

    Rey sets her gin down on the mahogany desk and stares at Ben.
    "You want to bring me to Millennium Island? You've gone mad. Your old money friends would chase me out with pitchforks before I ever managed to catch your art thief. Which would be highly unlikely to begin with, given that I have no plausible reason for being there. The game would be up the minute I arrived."
    Ben leans back in his arm chair, his eyes hooded, and takes a long drag on his cigarette.
    "Not if you agreed to marry me."

    Summary

    ....To unlock this door with the key of imagination, beyond it is another dimension, a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. ....You're moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas, you just crossed over...., into the Twilight Zone.

    ....Hollywood 1939, amid the glitz and glitter of a bustling young movie town at the height of its golden age, the Hollywood Tower Hotel was a star in its own right; a beacon for the show business elite. Now something is about to happen that will change all that.

    The time is now...., on an evening very much like the one we have just witnessed, tonight's story on the Twilight Zone is somewhat unique and calls for a different kind of introduction. This...., as you may recognize is a maintenance service elevator still in operation...., and waiting for you.

    Summary

    The Great War and Influenza all but decimated the world of force-sensitive people. The Jedi were all but annihilated, and schools across the globe shuttered their doors. Ben Organa was sent on holiday by his uncle, in an effort to bring him out of the depression the War had buried him in. The suggestion of Monte Carlo was an odd one, but none the less, he went.

    Reyes Andor once hoped to attend Jedha, the Jedi Academy in England. Her father, Cassian, had taken her to the gates one day as a little girl and told her she would go. After the War, the school closed and the dream was dashed. Now, with her parents gone, she works as a companion to Mrs. Antilles, and hides her Force sensitivity. They've been in Monte Carlo for nearly a month and she can already tell that her employer is growing bored.

    Then Benjamin Organa walks into the dinning room.

    Summary

    Welcome to Los Angeles 1926, the peak of the Roaring Twenties!

    Wealthy adopted brothers, Bucky Barnes and Steve Rogers, return home to the Stark Manor after graduating from boarding school. They, and their hoard of friends, have three months of absolute freedom before beginning their freshmen year of college. In an era synonymous with the Jazz Age, Prohibition, flappers, speakeasies, gangster crime, and sexual liberation, it only gets more interesting for Bucky and Steve when they entangle themselves in illicit affairs with the two newest foreign housemaids: Wanda Maximoff and Natasha Romanoff.

    Inspired by Titanic, Downton Abbey, The Great Gatsby, West Side Story, and several Mexican telenovelas about social class divisions. Titled after the popular 1926 song I'm Sitting on Top of the World sung by Al Jolson. Rating will go up and warnings will change as story progresses.

    Summary

    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality... I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.

    Martin Luther King, Jr.

    With that, Sam Wilson believed. He believed that love was superior to any boundary set by man. He believed for when love was pure and true, it would vanquish the world of its inhuman ways. He believed that someday Natasha's family will accept their love, because of how selfless his love to her was.

    And he was willing to sacrifice every thing that he owned, if it meant being able to love unconditionally.

    Summary

    "Sometimes I wish that the world wasn't so cruel to us, Stevie. Sometimes I wish I could come up to stage and kiss you right there, in front of everyone, just to let them know that you belonged to me. Sometimes I wish I could hold your hand when we walked in parks, and then run, chased by those hollywood-gossip-crazy reporters. Hollywood Heartrob seen with the Boy with the Golden voice. I can already imagine the headlines."

    "You know what I ever wanted, Buck?"

    Bucky looked up at the blonde.

    "That we could live together, and if we were lucky, maybe raise a kid or two. I don't care for any of these fame or fortune, as long as we can just be together, forever, without anyone bothering us."

    Summary

    "She's a cancelled stamp, Troy."

    Oh, but she wasn't. Miss Elle Baker is the flapper niece of industrialist Julius Little, and neither of them know the other well, but they're about to face off in the streets of Manhattan. Julius, thinking she's a young lady in need of a chaperone and distraction, provides just that as he tries to find her a suitable husband so she can just go quietly home to New Jersey. He's assigned his right hand man, Troy Bradshaw, to take her sightseeing while she's on holiday in the city. But once Elle arrives it's clear that this isn't quite a holiday and Troy decides right away that he's more taken with the lovely Elle than all the sights of New York.

    A prompt for Elle/Troy -- Holiday. It turned into something that isn't quite a holiday in New York City.
