    Summary

    Everyone promised The Turn of the Century would bring change, but ten years later it’s hard to see much of it. The skies are still thick with smog, the cities only growing denser and more crowded, and the low, boiling frustration of years past never left. Robber barons only grew stronger, making more profit and taking over whatever they can, crushing others beneath their feet. The Church has only doubled down on their endless inquisitions and witches have grown more restless in turn. Amid the chaos, a small coven hisses and bites, spilling gas on an already open fire, though it almost never the intention or desire. Unfortunately, neither douse flame.

    Summary

    “This may not be the promised land, but I assure you I am capable of pouring beer into glasses.”

    “If this isn’t the promised land, why would you come here?” He spoke. You laid your eyes on the back of his head.

    “No one ever went to the promised land to be a barmaid, Mr. Shelby.”

    After leaving your suffocating home, with only your paints and the clothes on your back, and hopping on a train to Birmingham, the last thing you expected was to be working for Thomas fucking Shelby. You also didn't expect to be breaking the law for him, but working for the Shelby Brothers was never going to be simple...

    Summary

    He had finally recognised her: Roxanne Spencer, only daughter of the new pastor’s wife from a different marriage. They were in hot enough waters with the man, that drowning his adoptive daughter would be nothing but detrimental to himself and his mother. “What have you been doing?” 

    “Running away,” she said blithely, plopping down next to him as he returned to the task at hand. “How’s a ‘gator food?” 

    “Your mother never made you Seafood Gumbo?” he asked, yanking out the rest of the intestines. They could feed the bayou for all he cared, he didn't need them. The girl didn’t even gag. 

    “Not with ‘gator.” 

    “Bully for you,” he muttered, deciding that there was little else he would get out of this.  

    “You never gave me your name,” the girl stated in a demanding tone. He eyed her warily. 

    “You never told me why you were running away,” he pointed out.

    Summary

    There was a photograph, torn down the middle. Pieces scattered as far as the East is from the West. Thousands of kilometers separated them now, as the world fell to pieces around them. And yet, if someone were to look closely, if someone were to traverse the space between them and lay the folded and worn parchment flat on the table, if someone were to line them up just so, they might realize that the two pieces fit together like the pieces of a puzzle, Like the gears of a clock. Like a nut and a bolt.
    Almost as if they were made from the same stock.

    This is a tale of love and of loss. Of heartache and of hope. Told in three parts, follow Aziraphale and Crowley as they navigate the hardships of growing up, the horrors of war, and the miraculous wonder of finding love in the most unlikely of places.

    Summary

    When Thomas Paine wrote about 'the times that try men's souls' he was writing of events in his own lifetime - but trying times aren't limited to the late 18th century. It's everyone's favorite spy ring a little over a hundred and twenty years in the future -- and with 120% more artillery barrages, airplanes, women's rights, trench raids, and just the tiniest bit of jazz.

    A collection of somewhat connected short pieces involving various characters from the show originally published on tumblr.

    Summary

    "Master Meredith, whose entitlement to a last name had not yet been determined by the courts, was sitting in a window-seat overlooking the playing fields of Narrows School when the Third House bullies found him."

    He needs a guard.

    In his final terms of school before his university years, Meredith is faced with a host of problems: A prefect who abuses his power. A games captain who is supposed to protect Meredith but has befriended the prefect. And a legal status that makes everyone in the school question whether Meredith belongs there, among the elite.

    Unexpectedly, rescue arrives, in the shape of a fellow student who seems determined to right wrongs. There's only one problem. . . .

    "Fair play" is the motto of the Third House, but that motto takes on a different meaning when Meredith is secretly wooed by a young man from a rival House.

    Summary

    Summary

    Queen Tyanna would do anything to save her daughter from the prophecy she read in Princess Daenys' book of fates which had predicted the Doom of Valyria and now, she realised, also predicted the death of her own daughter as a child if she sat the throne. Abandoning her own life to her husband's fury, she gave her to a dusky-skinned woman in a city of soot and ash that her magic had conjured a passage to.

    A Dragon alone in the world is a terrible thing--but Daena at least had the dream of being an aeronaut.

    This is the story of a Targaryen Sorceress on the cusp of the First World War, with her dead grandmother whispering in her mind.

    It is played straight from magical realism with realistic depictions of violence, period language, and extremist politics, be warned. I decided to count the 20th century as "Modern Setting" compared to medieval Westeros. The actual number of chapters is indeterminate, but likely to be /more/ than the currently estimated 100.

    A lot of historical people show up in this story in the style of most alt-hist works.

    Summary

    The Exalt family has a profitable city estate. The position of housekeeper has been empty since Emmeryn passed and a lot of the responsibilities had bestowed upon Frederick. While Frederick insists that the extra work does not interfere with his ability, Chrom, the new head of the house, sends an ad in the paper anyway, as a means to lighten the stress on his old friend.
    Robin is hired shortly after. Coming from a vague area in the countryside, Frederick is immediately distrusting of her character and ability. What becomes of him, then, when he slowly begins to respect, and even admire her?

    Summary

    Aziraphale thought about Crowley, her offer. Perhaps it was nerves, a lack of familiarity with this whole sexuality business that had Aziraphale so completely uncomfortable.

    Perhaps Crowley had the right of it.

    Hands-on experience.
