    Summary

    The resets keep happening, but Papyrus is gone. Nearly six years of grief have warped Sans, causing him to risk his soul with self-destructive behavior and making him all but unrecognizable to his old friends. Any day now, he expects a reset that will bring him far enough back in time to reunite with his brother and erase his sins. In the meantime, he'll distract himself with Muffet's new call girl...

    You need a lot of money, right now. Unlike the majority of humans in the slums of New Ebott, you don't have any anti-monster prejudice, and you're kinky, submissive and enjoy sex. You've heard someone like you can do very well for herself, catering to monsters. Now here you are with your first client, a skeleton monster in a suit offering you a drink from a hip flask...

    Undertale gangster AU with a 1930s-era American aesthetic, essentially because I like the clothes. Status updates and story chatter at http://neroli9.tumblr.com. Also, come chat with other APJFM fans at the APJFM Discord server!

    Summary

    Yuuri never felt the same bond with Scarlett as he had with his son. Perhaps it was that he missed the first two weeks of her life, perhaps it was because they were too similar, or maybe it was due to the fact that Scarlett could occasionally be an absolute pill to live with. Of course every child has their terrible two's, but Yuuri had never experienced as much trouble with his son as he did with her.

    (though that could have been because he was a bit harder on her than he was on him)

    Summary

    Lady Asami didn't worry much about the world around her. She'd lived in the Fire Nation all her life, and she knew that while the radical Spirit and Nationalist Parties were always trying to cause trouble nothing bad could really happen in the place she called home.

    At least, that was what she'd always believed. But when she meets the gorgeous alpha daughter of the Watertribe ambassador, she begins to see that the world isn't as safe as she always thought. She eventually realizes that freedom is not granted.

    The beginning maybe looks futile but we needed to depict Republic of Weimar. And we needed to depict the change that happened so quickly in a republic that left a lot of freedom to its citizens.

    Summary

    As the last man standing slumped to the floor, he took a deep breath and pondered how the power of a gun and the rush of taking someone else's life made him feel so good. He'd never known he was capable of killing someone before, and he wasn't sure he was capable of ever doing it again.

    or: Tony Stark and his mob family rule New York City. En Sabah Nur and his mob family rule upstate New York. Odin and his mob family rule northern New Jersey. Blackagar Boltagon and his mob family rule western Connecticut. Each has a fragile peace with the others, a "you stay out of my way and I'll stay out of yours" agreement, but what happens when an outside force manipulates them all with a goal of controlling the entire map?

    Summary

    Monty Swann is Hollywood's hottest new thing - a good kid who's all too aware that his ascendance has resulted in the studio's biggest star, Steve Whale, being shoved aside and into sexless uncle roles so the studio can push Monty. But with his smothering but loving stage mom shoving him into the spotlight, Monty forces himself to keep his head down and do his best.

    That's one thing Clarinda, Steve's niece, is determined not to do. Outraged that Wolf Pictures has all but retired her Uncle, she takes a risk and sneaks onto the set of Monty's latest picture to give him a piece of her mind. That, unfortunately, leads to Monty losing a piece of his - head clonking against the trunk of a palm tree thanks to a shove from Clarinda, Monty's left with a temporary case of amnesia - and only the vague memory of a beautiful girl hovering over him to guide his actions.

    When Monty insists that Clarinda - "the red-headed angel", as he calls her - is his girlfriend, she doesn't fight against the impression. Now her Uncle Steve is back on the lot, Clarinda's star is rising, and Monty and Clarinda are falling in love over milkshakes and games of checkers. But what will happen when Monty gets his memory back?

    Summary

    In a world on the verge of collapse, C.S. Rutherford did what he could to survive, at least until a routine case led him down a path he never expected to cross, and a dame with dark verdant eyes and a sharp wit strode into his office.

    With nothing as it seemed, including her, perhaps it all wasn’t as hopeless as he thought.

    Summary

    Con los dedos manchados y resbalosos, de sudor, tinta y un poco de sangre, el joven inglés firma la última de las veintidós páginas de su diario de notas en las cuales plasmó sus vertiginosas últimas dos semanas. Los nudillos de la mano le dolían, y se lamentaba ligeramente de no haber permitido que le “corrigieran” la manía de escribir con la zurda.
    “La única cosa de la que me arrepiento” —se permitió pensar, no sin ruborizarse por el espacio de un par de segundos. Después, tragó saliva. La ropa sucia se agolpaba alrededor de su figura enjuta, producto de haber vivido más afuera de su propia casa de lo que lo había hecho en su vida. Ropa, papeles, y una pistola sobre la cama, le daban una apariencia romántica y hasta idílica a la habitación, y Arthur se permitió recostarse dos minutos en el centro del caos. El conejo necesitaba refugiarse en su madriguera unos cuantos segundos, antes de enfrentar a los lobos.
    Pero no lo haría solo.

    Summary

    To the outside observer, Will Graham and Hannibal Lecter seem to have nothing in common: one is a penniless migrant accused of murder, the other a wealthy doctor and a pillar of his community.

    In truth, Will Graham and Hannibal Lecter are just alike. They are killers who long to show their true face, but are held back by the same shared uncertainty: have they fallen in love with a mask, or the man hiding behind it?

    Summary

    Bonnie owns and manages a nightclub. She's been at it for a few years when an old face turns to stir up some trouble.
    . . .
    "No. Now, she sounds...not quite like little Marcy, but not this hardened, jagged Marceline that she’s become. She sounds like the woman Bonnie spent the night in a barn with, staring up through the cracks in the ceiling, because that was as close to the city they could be to see the stars. That was the fall after she bought the club, when she worried about not being able to earn back her loans; Marceline was quiet a lot that fall, as she was that night, lying shoulder to shoulder with Bonnibel as they watched the sky blossom with little, white dots of life.
    It hurts."
