    Summary

    Loss will make a person do terrible things they never thought themselves capable of doing. Things like wanting the mobsters responsible for your little brothers death to pay so badly you’ll summon a Demon to make it happen.

    Maya did just that, but little did she know that the Demon would ask for her soul as the price. Or that when she refused give it to him, he would put her in the path of someone possibly much worse.

    Kai is offering to help her but what he wants is so much more than her soul. He wants her everything.

    Summary

    'And now ladies and gentlemen, the Kitty Kat Lounge is pleased to present, our very own little songbird, the woman in red, Lizzy Bennet!' Hoots and whistles mingled with applause as the curtain opened to reveal a small, dark-haired woman in a red dress. William heard her before he saw her; her voice was deep, sultry, and smoky as she sang the first words of a slow-tempoed 'I Ain't Got Nobody'. Every cell in his body responded to her in a way he could hardly comprehend. By the time she came into his line of vision, he was enraptured. When he saw her, he was a lost man.

    Her black hair was short and marcelled, accentuating her fine features. Her eyes were equally dark, but even from his faraway seat William could see them sparkle with vivacity. The red dress she wore was tight along her boyish chest and hips, with fringe beginning at waist level to decorate the front of the dress. It ended at a scandalous location just above her knees. Everything about her was slight, but she exuded solid strength and confidence. This was not a woman to be trifled with. William found himself wanting to trifle with her most desperately.

    Summary

    “A million people hungry, needing the fruit — and kerosene sprayed over the golden mountains. And the smell of rot fills the country.” — The Grapes of Wrath, John Steinbeck

    The world, as it is, is intolerable. To Yao Wang, released from nineteen years on the chain gang, a convict and a pariah. To Efrosyni Katsafanas, abandoned by her son’s father. To Alfred F. Jones, upholder above all else of the law. To Feliciano Fu Ling Wang, rescued by his adoptive father, who wants the truth about himself and the world. To Ludwig Sulzbach, struggling to see outside of his grandfather’s poisonous legacy. To Francis Bonnefoy, who sees in the city of Bendición the conditions out of which a better world can be formed. They must each answer for themselves the question: what is to be done? What are they willing to sacrifice, and what are they willing to create, for the world they long to see?

    Hetalia-Les Miserables (book and musical) fusion AU, set in vaguely-parallel-historical WWI/interwar California (and Oregon) with the serial numbers filed off. Character, pairing, and tag lists will be updated when necessary.

    Summary

    It's the not-so roarin' nineteen twenties considering your bleak and overall lowly position in the world. Shifting between jobs as the town librarian 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 -- mother, father, and sibling -- 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.

    If Echo flowers bloom in the Underground, then so can your determination to succeed, helping yourself and others around you.

    Summary

    In 1923, Dr John Watson is on trial for the murder of his lover, Mary Morstan, a writer of popular mysteries. If convicted, he will hang. Sherlock Holmes sets out to prove his innocence, but finds himself more and more infatuated with the handsome doctor, and deeper and deeper inside the bohemian world of London's painters, playwrights, and poets. Will he uncover the evidence needed to acquit him in time?

    Excerpt: "Watching the man’s stoic expression from the side, I began to recognise that this was not just another puzzle to stave off my boredom. I had not often been in romantic relationships, and certainly did not believe that a person could fall in love with another person across a room, just by looking at them. But when I saw the light glinting off his hair, the look of patient fortitude on his face, and knew the effort it must be costing him to maintain his composure, I felt that I could not let him die. John Watson had to be saved, and some fate had brought me here to do just that."

    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

    The man who had rented the room before him had also been a PI, and so Detective Shane Madej’s door still read CC TINSLEY & ASSOCIATES, PRIVATE INVESTIGATORS in peeling gold letters.

    Along with the door, he’d inherited Tinsley’s desk, his reputation, and one badly-lit corridor’s worth of neighbors. These included a disreputable tattooist, an off-book accountant and, of course, The Mystic Oracle: Spirit Connexions and Communications.

    LA, 1927 – Shane’s a jaded Private Eye. Ryan’s a two-bit Spiritualist. Together, they’re going to solve a murder.

    Summary

    The walls are starting to close in for the Lackadaisy and Marigolds alike, and both are feeling the pressure.

    "In fact, that's why I'm here— with your interests in mind— suggesting you step down. There are less diplomatic ways I could go about it."
