    Summary

    Down-on-his-luck private eye Eddie Valiant gets hired to investigate the acts in Prohibition-era Chicago after an assignment in Brooklyn left him with not an inkling left, but he’s soon in the mix with a pair of whiskey guzzlers who may do more harm than good for his next black-and-white case.

    When an idealistic gambling and sax swingin’ demon and bass-plucking wolf accidentally witness a gangland shooting, they quickly board a train to Florida disguised as the two newest (and homeliest) members of a jazz band.

    Their cover is perfect…until a lovelorn singer swings her way for the sax, an ancient penny pincher falls for a wolf in sheep’s clothing, and the king of the city is intent to keep his crown and wants to put anyone who stands in his way on ice for good.

    Summary

    AU set in 1920's America
    Illegal booze is flowing through the country and families fight for control over the bootlegger's market. Atlantic City boss Petyr "Littlefinger" Baelish, self-made man, sits comfortably in his kingdom of gambling, whores, and the the liquor-filled nights of the shore. But he soon finds himself in a precarious position between the Lannister's of New York and the Starks of Chicago.

    Note: This is mostly for fun, a far reach from cannon or cannon timelines.

    “I—I’m David,” he mumbled, eyes on the floor. “David Jacobs. Shit, I’ve already fucked this up. First day in the mob I didn’t know my father was a part of and I’m already bad at it.”

    Summary

    Every Greek tragedy needs an Antigone or a Danaë. Every King Lear needs a Cordelia. Boardwalk Empire positioned itself as both a Greecian tragedy and Shakespearean, and yet forgot that key player who binds everyone together.

    Clara Thompson, like everyone around her, is learning to cope in a post-World War I reality. The reality includes Prohibition, which her father (a dirty politician) sees as a chance to consolidate wealth and power. Her pseudo-brother Jimmy is physically back in Atlantic City, but his soul still seems elsewhere. After her father banishes Jimmy to Chicago, Clara chases after him and meets Richard Harrow, a young vet whose war damage isn't confined to his face. Meanwhile, her father's machinations put everyone's lives in danger and contributes to changing familial ties.

    Summary

    Speakeasies and roadsters, prohibition and organized crime. New York is no stranger to the furthest reaches of man’s desire. Some want fame and will do anything they can to get it, others want money. Some just want to solve the damn problem. It isn’t all so linear, and it’s hardly a piece of cake. There’s peril, romance, and a very fine line between the two.

    A.K.A - A 1920s Newsies AU; Davey’s a detective/investigative journalist, Jack’s an artist by day and a performer by night, and Spot and Race are rival gang leaders at each other’s throats.

    Summary

    As an up-and-coming scientist, you're a firm believer in logic and have always thought the tales of humans and monsters to be myths, a theory you're forced to accept as wrong when these begin to show up at the speakeasy you're a part of.

    It's the not-so roarin' nineteen twenties considering your bleak and overall lowly position in the world. Shifting between jobs as the town's bookworm and a singer for a speakeasy, while dangerous, doesn't bring much conflict or excitement into your life, most of it spent trying to survive and keeping your family afloat. Things take a turn when a gun's pointed at your head, your saviour being a large goatman and his helper a skeleton, both who help you live undercover, unnoticed, and underground.
