    Summary

    When in preparation to marry, one should, under no circumstances, allow their eyes to lay upon another, especially if they be of a lower class. Fraternization with those below ones own station, unless absolutely necessary, is to be avoided. Engaging in a relationship with a person below ones own station is guaranteed to have a young lady, especially an engaged one, ostracized from polite society. If this young lady's fiance were to also engage in a relationship with this same pauper, social ruin would fall upon them both. Alas, that will be the day that up is down and right is left; when two young society people and a pauper fall in love. What a harem that would be!-Polite Society for New Money, by Tina F. Lombard, Duffer Publishing House, 1870

    Summary

    "Губы Аояги разошлись со вздохом, и на мгновение Виктор увидел туманное выражение, скрытое под внешним лоском, мимолетное, как лепестки сакуры на ветру. Там было столько невысказанного, что Виктор хотел, еще больше, чем когда-либо, забрать этого человека с собой. Привести его в свой дом, подальше от сверкающего мира роскоши и грязи."
    Виктюри в историческом АУ, 1800 годы, Эдо, Япония. Юри-Аояги – высококлассная куртизанка-парень, а Виктор – безнадежно влюбленный.
    Занка – цветение (в основном, вишни), проходящее лишь в сезон. (прим. Автора)

    Summary

    The year is 1933, the United States is stricken with a seemingly endless depression. The stock market's crash affects every aspect of daily life. Billions of dollars have been lost, countless hardworking Americans have been laid off and contaminated with extreme poverty. Many people live from paycheck to paycheck, unable to provide necessities for themselves and their families.

    Spending money on entertainment is out of the question for most. So a very inexpensive media outlet arose: Radio. Some programs gained large and loyal followings, while others struggled to gain traction considering the immense numbers of competitive shows.

    Arin Hanson has built a small but respectable show with his co-host Jon. But when Jon leaves the program it's up to Arin to save his life's work from tanking.
