    Summary

    (Hiraeth (Welsh) – a homesickness for a home to which you cannot return, a home which maybe never was; the nostalgia, the yearning, the grief for lost places of your past.)

    The Yugoslav Wars of the 1990s: welcome to hell.

    As Rey grows up in a country which technically isn't at war, even though its consequences are felt all around them, she forms a strong bond with an odd young man whose personal involvement in the conflict may run much deeper than it seems. Over the years, as political plots thicken and the war rages on, Rey must learn the difference between idealism and doing the right thing, discovering the price of personal happiness.

    Also known as "that squatting Kylo in a tracksuit fic you didn't know you wanted." Comes with lots of swearing, East European shenanigans and references to some pretty cool music.

    Summary

    The year is 1994. The Iron Curtain has come down, the oligarchs have begun their rise to power, and Kyril Ren, a powerful member of the infamous crime syndicate Solntsevskaya Bratva, has been given a job: hunt down an estranged uncle who has been snitching to the FBI.

    Irena, nicknamed Rey by her adoptive father Luke, is a Krav Maga instructor in New York who has finally been able to obtain her original birth certificate from Russia. Turns out she was born in a little village named Vershinino, but if she wants to know more than that… she’s going to have to go there herself.

     

    TL;DR: What up here's a Russian Mafia AU.

    Summary

    I was waiting on the moment

    But the moment never came

    All the billion other moments

    Were just slipping all away

    A retelling of the original 1972 manga (with other Good Shit from various other adaptions/canons that we like), but taking place in the 90s. Or perhaps there lies more to our story...?

    (The mikimiko isn't a side pairing in this, it's in your face.)

    Summary

    After making sure that the pile of stuff that he called home was neatly done, he headed off in the direction of the restaurant. The Safe Place, it was called. A safe haven for all queer people, disguised as a restaurant to the unsuspecting public. Something about tricking them into believing that it was a haven away from the chaos of their lives, while in actuality it was a haven away from them. It was there that Victor found work when he first arrived.
    Mila and Sara, the couple that owned the restaurant, took him in when they found out he had fled his home. Wash him up, make him presentable, and give him the waiter’s apron, Mila had said. And he couldn’t be happier. Being a waiter wasn’t exactly part of his plan, but money came with the job, and that he couldn’t refuse.

    A NYC! AU, where Victor’s a demigirl roller-skater working as a waiter, and Yuuri’s this cute baseball player that he’s fallen for. Set in the 90’s. VERY GAY. (A collaboration between me and @tearsonice)

    Summary

    As spring turns into summer, school band Cotton Candy unexpectedly loses its singer and the members are forced to look for a new vocalist. Six boys find one in the form of the promiscuous pink haired boy Park Jimin who makes a home in their hearts and finally finds a place he belongs.

    In which Hitoshi Shinsou takes a part-time job as a driver for a dodgy shipping company, and maybe finds himself along the way.

     

    Hitoshi is a failing student in dire need of cash. Dire enough to look past the fact that his new employer naps in a sleeping bag under his desk, and that the clients are, let's say... special.
    A nineties' AU urban fantasy series in which Shinsou finally gets to be the hero we all know he is.

     

    This fic is episodic. Every chapter is its own little arc.

    Summary

    They didn't have much, if anything, in common. It's 1998 and Dean Winchester just started junior year at probably his twentieth school. He'd like to think of himself as the outsider; but, to the nerdy sophomore Castiel Novak, he's just another of the popular kids. That is, until he isn't. What he truly IS, remains unclear to Castiel as the two pave the way to an unlikely friendship. Dean's only hiding one important detail: he's already fallen head over heels for his sweet angel, Cas. Things aren't as easy as they seem, though. Dean has no idea of the not-so-dusty skeletons hiding in his angel's closet. Meanwhile, Castiel is in the dark about the things that go bump in the night and the world that Dean has always been part of. With so much to hide, is there hope of a foundation of love from something that was doomed from the beginning?
