    Summary

    Building off of Artsy Hobbitses' Humaformers AU.

    Just after the Great War, the Quintessons invaded Earth and enslaved the human race. They would hold sway for twenty-five years, give or take, during which they performed experiments on the world, its people, and harvested both for resources.

    In a war-scarred London, a man named Victor Prentiss remembers what it means to have hope.

    Update schedule is M/TH. Content warnings are per chapter, but general CWs are violence, trauma, death, and nonconsensual human experimentation.

    Summary

    “Zhao Yunlan. Archaeologist, adventurer, and a professional treasure hunter.” Zhao Yunlan gave him his most charming smile. It worked, usually, at least on all the aunties at the market – surely it could work on impossibly pretty men, too? And the man was staring at Yunlan a little too intensely, although that could be because he did throw someone out of the window… 

    His future husband blinked. “You’re the grave robber the Curator is always complaining about.”

    “I am not a grave robber.” Zhao Yunlan protested. “But, yeah, he would probably call me that.” 

    “Shen Wei,” his future husband introduced himself, extending a hand towards Zhao Yunlan. “I’m the Head Librarian here.”

    Summary

    One day in 2012, Steve Rogers encounters a doppelgänger of himself who says three words that change everything: "Bucky is alive."

    This is a story about friendship that survives war, tragedy, and the devastation of time. It eases into things with a glimpse of two friends growing up together in the 20s and 30s. It then goes DARK (mind the tags). Darkness doesn't last forever, though. It always yields to light. COMPLETE, chapters posted 2x/week.

    Summary

    The Sahara does not forgive mistakes, it does not spare arrogant idiots who set out on a journey, not equipped with any provisions, or even at least some water supply in the hope of outwitting the Lord God himself. Adele and Guillaume felt it firsthand.

    Summary

    New York City, early 1930's
    Joseph "Rumblin' Joe" Lynch quits his underground boxing career under strange circumstances. Tony Zeppeli, a private detective and descendant of a family of vampire hunters, is sent to investigate, and the two strike an unlikely alliance in a city of violent gangs, bizarre happenings, and a new mob boss who has drawn Stand users as well as undead creatures to his side.

    This is an original part of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure taking place in a new timeline. Like with Parts 7 and 8, expect some familiar names or characters to pop up in new contexts.

    - Stands are named after classic movies
    - Undead and Hamon + Stand powers
    - This will probably be a long fic
    - Will add tags and (maybe) warnings as the fic progresses
    - Updates whenever I feel like it

    Summary

    Viktor has been a time traveler since he turned 15. His father warned him about it — how he would wake up in a different time or place, spend a day or two before falling back right into the moment he left. It happened less to those who were happy, but Viktor forgot that detail quickly. On the eve of his fifth consecutive Grand Prix, Viktor travels to 1936 Japan, the furthest from home he’s ever traveled. Thankfully, a kind and handsome man comes to his rescue. Yuuri and the rest of the Fujimura's take him in as one of their own. Viktor, for once, doesn't travel. But the family curse that has given him everything he wants can easily take it away just as quickly.

    Summary

    For every trial, for every task,

    there is a corresponding mask.

    A frown, a smirk, a pout, a grin,

    They shield the soul contained therein.

    But masks and faces, and manners too,

    disguise the single face that’s true.

    The face that’s under the facade,

    the one the foolish, charmed and awed,

    profess to see, to claim to know,

    although they’ve never seen it show.

    And so they pry through charm and guile,

    in hopes to see what’s ‘neath that smile.

    However, they are unaware,

    that mask and face are not a pair.

    For those that pry soon come to find

    they don’t like what’s hiding behind,

    because the face once locked within,

    might not be that charming grin.

    And thus the wise are dread to ask

    to see what’s there beneath the mask.

    Summary

    New York City. 1930.

    It’s a dark, dangerous place. Filled with criminals and scum. It’s not uncommon to hear about a murder, but this one was particularly mysterious.

    You, the fresh faced Detective Camilla DeVille are hungry to solve this one, unwilling to allow anything to get into your way.

    Unless that anything is the beautiful and seductive Alcina Dimitrescu, the lead singer of Miss D and the Pallboys who also happens to be a suspect in the murder.

    Great.

    Summary

    To start off his year of travel and liaison with a life away from work, Noriaki Kakyoin decided it was time to venture further out of the country, settling to take a week in the Swiss mountains to relax, unwind, and paint.

    The life of the idle rich escapes him, he had never grasped quite how they managed to balance the expensive trips across the globe having never of worked, and what they exactly did with their time.

    He had hoped his opening week away would be peaceful; he did not count however, on the cast of characters that were similarly escaping to the mountains, to be so intriguing. To have so many secrets to hide, and pasts for Noriaki to uncover.

    And when in the midst of the forced community, someone steps out of line, Noriaki becomes particularly drawn in by one man in the cohort. One who dresses in rich, well-tailored suits, and has dark ebony hair. Who acts cold one moment, and invites him to drink the next.

    It does not take long for Noriaki to realise, his stay at the lodge will not be at all how he envisioned it.

    Summary

    Saul Panzer might not be a regular guy's idea of an angel, but nothing in the world could be more like all the blessed cherubim in person to me when he walked into that damned cellar, unpressed trousers and all.

    There's no man I'd rather be handcuffed to.
