    Summary

    Jimin chews on his lower lip for a moment, clearly conflicted. Eventually, he meets the elder's eyes with a decisive look. "You won't get the wrong idea, will you?" He asks quietly, far gentler than he has any right to be for someone who isn't kicking Yoongi out of his room. "I belong to The Ophel Lounge, and I'm not in the business of mending broken hearts."

    (Yoongi has to admit that he has a very bad feeling about this.)

    "Doll, I'm fucking off in a few months," he hedges instead, brushing his lips against the bridge of Jimin's nose. The dancer sighs, tension bleeding from his body as he sags against Yoongi with sleepy relief. "Forget you; it's me who can't afford to get the wrong idea."

     

    Written for @httpmin_ with love.

    Summary

    1920's America, at the height of prohibition, different gangs grip New York tightly, the strongest being Aoba Johsai, who have control over both Boston and Chicago. And Oikawa Tooru is as the forefront of Aoba Johsai's rule over New York as the city's most famous drag queen.

    At the bottom of the pile sits Nekoma. Once great, after the death of their former boss, they fell from grace and now at the end of everyone else's jokes. The new boss doesn't like that and puts Kuroo in charge of sorting it out. Which is how he meets Oikawa Tooru.

    Kuroo isn't supposed to get attached. This is his job, his mission and he's supposed to be faithful to his boss and his boss alone. But things change and Kuroo can't seem to pull the trigger.

    Summary

    It's the mid 1920s, and Luke has finally saved up enough money to join his friends in the United States - something they had dreamed of since kids. Luke wants nothing more than to meet up with old pals Calum, Micheal, and Ashton, and for the four to be best friends again like they were back in Australia, but it seems that living in prohibition era America has changed his friends more than he could imagine. Some of them seem to have gotten caught up in the lucrative illegal side of the roaring '20s, yet others seem to have been drawn to the opposite side. How will Luke fit in to this new setting; will he be able to fulfill his dreams of opening a tea and cake shop, or will he get sucked into illicit activities by his old friends?

    Summary

    He believed in all kinds of magic like alchemy, prayers, voodoo, and astronomy, in magical occurrences and magical courage.
    (Or was that liquid courage? Courage in a liquid had to count as magic, right?)
    Jimin’s always believed in magic and there was something downright magical to be found in the bottom of a shined glass filled with brown water made in someone else’s bathtub.
    (Or maybe it was the magic from Hoseok’s smile after cheering on Jimin throwing back a shot in one go that awed him.)
    (Physical happiness in someone’s smile had to count as magic, right?)

    AKA,

    Jimin and Hoseok live in America during the Prohibition Era and drink way too much to be healthy but its okay because life is too short to not do things illegally. Also, Jimin might be looking for that certain push he needs to tell Hoseok something he's had on his mind for years.

    Summary

    Chicago, 1929
    America's experiment with banning the sale of alcohol has largely failed. However, the laws are still in effect, meaning that most people make use of illegal speakeasies to get their fix. Owners of such establishments and illegal liquor distributors are living like kings, but tensions between rival gangs are higher than ever, and threatening to break out into all-out war.

    Enter Eva Mohn, an aspiring singer from a small town who gets more than she bargained for when she takes a gig at an underground speakeasy and meets Christoffer Schistad- bootlegger, skirt chaser, and known associate of infamous crime boss William Magnusson.

    Summary

    Anyone in the New York criminal underworld will tell you that there's something a little different about The Dandy Daggers, Tony Stark's gang of plucky bootleggers. And it's true - everyone's in way over their heads. Bucky and Steve are struggling to make ends meet; Nat and Sam are still mourning loved ones; Thor, Loki, and Brunnhilde are going to get themselves killed any day; and the goddamn 16-year-olds just appointed themselves heads of weaponry.

    Oh, and all of them are regular attendees at Harlem's most notorious drag clubs.

    OR: the most valid Avengers + knife fights + drag balls + sharp suits + scientifically dubious 1920s booze. everyone is gay and trans and there's nothing the russos can do about it.

    Summary

    “You do this, you do. You take the things you love
    and tear them apart
    or you pin them down with your body and pretend they're yours.
    So, you kiss him, and he doesn't move, he doesn't
    pull away, and you keep on kissing him. And he hasn't moved,
    he's frozen, and you've kissed him, and he'll never
    forgive you, and maybe now he'll leave you alone.”

    A brutal murder on Christmas Eve abruptly pulls one Detective Nikiforov out of a holiday he was just starting to tolerate, and forces him to come to terms with demons he's been pretending not to see. On that same night, a man walks into a bar and waltzes into his life, lighting a spark that grows into a monster of its own.
