    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. His rebellious son Jason dabbles in Soviet Communism. 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

    Zarkon’s terms had been clear. He would listen to the GalraTech Omega Union’s demands for fairer treatment on company grounds, put GalraTech’s support behind the Omega Equal Persons Act, and even put in a good word for the GOU with the two other companies that hired the majority of Alteans – for one small thing in return. Keith Song, labour leader, rioter and strike organizer - and the least passive Omega in history - was to marry his adopted son.

    Keith agrees, of course. He's not stupid. But turns out, Zarkon's adopted son is bashfully sweet, a little screwed up, and incredibly attractive.

    Which complicates things.

    Summary

    In an AU where Rapture does not fall, and the horrors of splicing don't come to exist, Jack Ryan is, as Andrew Ryan's son, something of a celebrity. Shy and a bit of a wallflower, he does not thrive under the conditions of constant, intrusive press; social expectations; and his father's own willingness to use him to 'sweeten' various business deals. A few months shy of his eighteenth birthday, he takes to hiding in plain sight, sneaking out to a pub in the rough end of town to try and drown his sorrows.

    It's there that he meets a factory worker named Atlas, who saves him from blundering into harm's way, and then becomes as much of an escape as the social strata and neighborhood he inhabits.

    Summary

    In which Taehyung is convinced they’re gonna be attacked by aliens, Namjoon is a prince, and Hobi decides to run away but gets caught by this weird shorty named Sugar or something? Elsewhere, Seokjin is pretty sure he’s not a princess, Jungkook decides to become the best warrior ever and Jimin wants to dance damn it, not just cook.

    It’s pretty chaotic.

    OR

    That one BTS Prince!AU that no one asked for.

    Summary

    Other considered names for this fic include: "No, Really, Sarah Rogers Hates Calvin Coolidge" and "Bucky And Steve Are Great But Check Out Their Mothers."

    Wherever little Stevie Rogers went, Bucky Barnes was sure to follow. But the neighborhood wasn't surprised by that, not with the way the widow Sarah Rogers and Winifred Barnes got on together. And if girls in need of help found their way to those women, well. The neighborhood would always take care of its own.

    In which Sarah Rogers and Winifred Barnes are a force to be reckoned with both alone and together, provide a certain service to girls who find themselves in trouble, raise their children, survive Black Tuesday, and save each other's lives in more ways than one.

    Summary

    Feli Vargas was the kind of person someone would write a heartwarming true American success story human interest piece about; the sort of thing with the good-natured but debilitatingly-poor teenager staying in school and avoiding drugs and gangs to get good grades and achieve a scholarship, preferably while also working to help feed the family.

    When Ludwig mentioned this to Antonio, Antonio winced and grimaced.

    “Don’t… don’t tell him that,” he was cautioned.

    Summary

    To be fair, Buffy wasn't entirely sure how she was supposed to stop a giant robot about to attack Tokyo. But still, being told that someone else would handle it felt a bit weird.

    A crossover between Buffy and the Flaming Lips song "Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots, Part 1". You don't need to be familiar with the song to read it, but a passing awareness of Japanese monster movies probably helps.
