    Summary

    Set in 1920s America, a vampire from a cult-like coven is sent to look after her incompetent Sire. Through a series of events set in motion far before she arrived, she forms a complicated sort of relationship with her Sire's former favorite, a capable and headstrong thrall (humans in service to vampires). A story of vampires, mobsters, ghosts, witches, cults, and mysteries. Oh, and *lots* of kink, poly, and queer relationships. Adding tags as they appear in the story, so keep an eye out for new ones!

    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

    The year is 1927 and Fleamont Potter has been lured out of his potions’ workshop to attend the wedding tour of his dear friend Dorian Longbottom and Dorian’s new, mildly insufferable wife Augusta. Joined by Augusta’s equally insufferable elder brother and Floo Network director Collin Finch, and her best friend Beatrice Boot, a young rising star at the Ministry of Magic, the two-week voyage aboard the SS Karnak steamship is bound for adventure.

    But the pleasure cruise is swiftly revealed to be the journey from hell as one of their number is brutally murdered aboard the ship. Fleamont is suddenly responsible for finding the killer, joined by the lovely Miss Euphemia Misra, daughter of a Bombay apothecary trading mogul. In addition to their wedding party, the steamship is also host to the notorious heiress Sabella Malfoy and her cousin, one of the wealthiest wizards in Britain, Alphard Black, meaning there is no end to the suspect list.

    Yes, the year is 1927 and there has been a death on the River Nile.  Or, Agatha Christie Murder Mystery but with Magic

    Summary

    It’s a dismal day in December of 1926 when Mrs. Neele arrives at an upscale hotel spa in Harrogate. Bemusing the hotel staff with her strange moods, this mysterious lady seems to want only to grumble over the room service, fixate on the newspapers, and avoid the chatty parlor maid assigned to keep her room. But when that same parlor maid finds her job in jeopardy for a crime she didn’t commit, Mrs. Neele’s sharp mind and particular affinity for mysteries may be just the thing necessary to clear the girl’s name. Not to mention, just the thing to distract herself from the secret burden she’s carrying.

    Summary

    A year ago, Frisk and Chara moved to a town under Mount Ebott and opened a small coffee shop. Times are hard - the city is divided between three mafia families - one human and two monsters. The coffee shop is located in the very center of the "peaceful" zone, where every family and none have power at the same time. Frisk and Chara are forced to pay a "tax" to one of the mafias, but at the same time absolutely everyone comes to them - gender, race - it does not matter to them.
    Their life would have been a little better if Frisk had not been tormented by old memories. Who will help her get rid of them? Maybe a new friend skeleton, next to which the girl can finally relax?

    Summary

    Visions of reuniting with his cherished wife in his splendorous home after a successful, fulfilling trip to film his latest production — the first he's traveled in a long time, as Celine never liked him being away for such long stints — shatter when little more remains in the manor of her than an envelope with his name in her handwriting, the message inside crushing him completely and sending him spiraling.

    Convinced that the only thing that could make it all worse would be for the news to get out, but unable to muster the strength or willpower to put on a smile and attend to any of his personal or professional matters, his life rapidly falls apart around him. Mark chases away everyone he can — god knows he can't trust them, least of all Damien.

    It hurts Damien to see Mark in this state, but there's only so much one man can do, or should tolerate; Mark is treating him terribly.

    Levia Chesterfield, an old but somewhat estranged friend of Mark's and the current District Attorney, volunteers to step in — if only for Damien's sake.

    Or, how we avoided what could have been.

    Summary

    In hindsight, Merope Riddle thought, as she watch a bit nervously from the back of the drawing room as Mrs. Riddle quizzed Mr. Black on everything to do with the wizardry world, I really should have bewitched a gardener’s son or some other handsome strapping young man. Her mother-in-law was quite terrifying.

    Or Mary Riddle in grief of losing her son and husband to an automobile accident goes to find in hope her maybe grandchild to raise and stumbles across Myrtle a few months before she is due. Thankfully she had a detective to help her out.

    In which Mary Riddle raises her grandson, and brings her daughter-in-law up to speed on what nobility is really like and organized the outcasts squibs to do something with their lives.

    Or the wizardry world won’t know what hit them since Mrs. Riddle was a force of nature. If she was sorted she would have been a Hufflepuff with Slytherin underneath.

    After all you get more flies with honey then with vinegar. Tom becoming the PM was just a bonus.
