    Summary

    During the initial rush of young volunteers to fight in the Great War, William Poindexter is busy tending to ships and his family with steady hands and a quiet courage. Once it’s clear that it won’t be over quickly, however, he feels no choice but to enlist in the service of Queen and Country.
    In Eastern France, he meets American Derek Nurse, a singer and a poet who teaches him how to laugh and be free in a way Will hadn’t known he was even missing. Their connection is grounding in the uncertainty and dangers of the War they’ve both promised to return home from. But as is the way of War, their connection is unexpectedly shattered beyond repair.
    Unless, by some miracle, an act of fate or God or perhaps just the force of a bond that can’t be broken, they can find their way to each other again in the midst of a new age of uncertainty and danger - the Prohibition

    Summary

    Moving to New Orleans to start up her rehabilitation hotel for criminals hasn't been all berries for Charlie, especially if everybody thinks you're some Dumb Dora with a complete horseshit plan.

    And it's another jam that she's starting to get stuck on Alastor, the charming yet eccentric radio host next door who's never fully dressed without a smile.

    But she's all smiles too, and that's made her out to be quite the dish to Alastor - in all senses of the word - and boy, was he ready to be entertained.

    Summary

    Speakeasies and roadsters, prohibition and organized crime. New York is no stranger to the furthest reaches of man’s desire. Some want fame and will do anything they can to get it, others want money. Some just want to solve the damn problem. It isn’t all so linear, and it’s hardly a piece of cake. There’s peril, romance, and a very fine line between the two.

    A.K.A - A 1920s Newsies AU; Davey’s a detective/investigative journalist, Jack’s an artist by day and a performer by night, and Spot and Race are rival gang leaders at each other’s throats.

    Summary

    For the prompt, "On January 16, 1920 Prohibition went into effect...".

    Steve and Bucky would have grown up during the '20s where Prohibition was a fact of life--and so were mobsters and people trying to get around the law. Lindburgh flew the Atlantic in 1927. This takes place during spring, 1928, when Bucky would be eleven and Steve would be a bit younger. Bucky gets side-tracked running an errand for his dad, and Steve goes looking for him and winds up in a predicament of his own.

    Summary

    Down-on-his-luck private eye Eddie Valiant gets hired to investigate the acts in Prohibition-era Chicago after an assignment in Brooklyn left him with not an inkling left, but he’s soon in the mix with a pair of whiskey guzzlers who may do more harm than good for his next black-and-white case.

    When an idealistic gambling and sax swingin’ demon and bass-plucking wolf accidentally witness a gangland shooting, they quickly board a train to Florida disguised as the two newest (and homeliest) members of a jazz band.

    Their cover is perfect…until a lovelorn singer swings her way for the sax, an ancient penny pincher falls for a wolf in sheep’s clothing, and the king of the city is intent to keep his crown and wants to put anyone who stands in his way on ice for good.

    Summary

    AU set in 1920's America
    Illegal booze is flowing through the country and families fight for control over the bootlegger's market. Atlantic City boss Petyr "Littlefinger" Baelish, self-made man, sits comfortably in his kingdom of gambling, whores, and the the liquor-filled nights of the shore. But he soon finds himself in a precarious position between the Lannister's of New York and the Starks of Chicago.

    Note: This is mostly for fun, a far reach from cannon or cannon timelines.

    Summary

    The dining room of The Compass Points is awash in dim gold light that soaks into red velvet seats, gleams off of fine cutlery and white china. Everyone here is someone important, and all their eyes are trained on Fig, dinners and companions forgotten in the spell of her voice. Fig sways under the attention, cups the microphone as she croons an old standard.

    Summary

    Dean sees it in that split second he needs to see pretty much anything. Especially when he’s had to miss Cas for a week, not knowing if he was in safe hands during his heat isolation.

    This time around, he clearly wasn’t.

    Summary

    “it’s a beautiful day, today. don’t ya’ agree?”

    The human turned to her right startled, by the sudden newcomer. For a moment, she was speechless.

    Frisk was accustomed to the different looks that monsters generally had. Some were small, while others were huge. Some were more human-like, and then there were others that were the most unique being she had seen. The monster standing before her was no different. He stood just a few inches taller than herself, a creature of pure bone and magic, looking very much identical to an animated skeleton of a human. His eyes were nothing, just white specks of magic in a hollow cavern. A smug toothy grin of false joy...

    It was his clothes, however, that rattled her. He was dressed like the man killers roaming the streets of her beloved city....

    Summary

                  The year is 1922 and a speakeasy called The Patron is thriving in its element. But it wasn't always like this. A year ago, it had been in disrepair and ready to vanish into obscurity. But Patton Moore wasn't ready to shut his doors just yet.
                  The year of 1921 was one change after the other. The Kingsley twins returned and shined as musicians, familiar faces guarded the doors and bar... Calling in the cavalry meant bringing in an old friend for help, and mob bosses aren't the first thought when it comes to investing in a bar. So what happened?
                  What happened to a place that was lousy with misfortune to make it change?
                  Pull up a chair. Sit down. We'll pour you a drink and tell you a story.

    Summary

    Katsuki Bakugo was against a wall. After the death of his father, his mother and him were stuck in a financial hole that seemed impossible to get out of. Fearing the worst was yet to come, he sells his soul to the devil himself: Tomura Shigaraki, don of the League. Shiguaraki enlists Katsuki to transport "packages" from Canada to their city, bringing in illegal money to the blind pigs and speakeasies that littered their town. Quick on his feet and even quicker behind the wheel, Katsuki knows it's easy money. Bonuses come when there wasn't a palm to grease or he doesn't get caught. But when a new Prohibition Officer arrives into town, throwing a wrench into the League's plan, and Katsuki's mother falls ill, Katsuki is backed into a corner again, forced to chose if he wanted the prosperous life of crime or to do right by the doe-eyed officer that seems to have captured his heart.
