    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

    Inej had never thought herself to be the jealous type.

    Saints, the very idea of it was antithetical to the way she was raised in her caravan, the way she’d lived her whole life  — always taught to share things, to think of others and not herself. 

    For a good long while, she’d believed it, too. Generosity was a virtue, and one she figured she ought to cling to amidst the others she’d be forced to give up during her life in the Barrel.

    But now, looking across the room to where the evening’s mark blushes and giggles and places her hand oh-so-delicately on Kaz’s sleeve, Inej immediately knows — 

    She doesn’t want to share him with anyone else. Not even a little bit.

    OR: Inej watches Kaz flirt with a mark for a job and decides she's having none of it. Roaring Twenties AU.

    Summary

    “So, what’s a handsome fella like you doing wasting time with someone like me ??”

    Terra throws his head back laughing, and Riku laughs a little as well. Terra releases his hand, and Riku feels a sense of loss for a moment before that hand is under his chin, forcing him to look up and meet Terra’s gaze. The colors in his eyes swirl, like good whiskey in a nice glass, and Riku’s breath catches, he feels his heart well and truly skip a beat.

    “We’re dancing. Isn’t that what other people do ??”

    Terra’s thumb brushes over his lower lip, and Riku feels his knees nearly buckle under him.

    He’s never wanted anything as much as he wants to kiss Terra until they’re both breathless.

    “Or….are you trying to skip the formalities ??”

    Summary

     It's been several years since notorious crime boss, Urbosa Reign, was declared dead after an accidental housefire, leaving her two children, Nabooru and Ganon to take care of the family business - however, even with two years of practice, the pair seem to struggle with their duties. Nabooru in particular, hurt routinely by a conscious even she doesn't understand the origins of, lives day to day, trying to protect the women in her employ while maintaining a profit on Hyrule City's roughest streets. Fighting against them are newly appointed chief-of-police, Zelda Sagesse, daughter of the mayor, and the mayor's assistant, Impa Espoi. Enforcing prohibition of alcohol is a devil of a job without the Gerudo, Goron, Zora, and even Hylian gangs butting in on legislation. Despite their best efforts, the city has held at a standstill with elicit deals, crooked cops, and mafiosos making the rules - but one sour lover is enough to bring everything tumbling down.

    Captivated by love.
    Consumed by hatred.
    Engrossed in obsession.
    Flooded in addiction.
    Riveted in delight.
    Inundated in sorrow.
    Absorbed by greed.
    Swamped with debt.

    Summary

    Padmé purposefully swayed her hips a bit more than usual as she descended the ornate staircase into the front of the dancehall. On the stage, Eirtaé was crooning a maudlin song about lost love, and on the floor the patrons shuffled along cheek to cheek. There was nothing on this side of the wall that could earn her any trouble, but the Inspector was persistent enough that Padmé knew he had some suspicions about her other businesses.

    Summary

    "Let's get married."

     The man in front of him nearly choked on the wine he was drinking, getting his shirt dirty.

     Desolate, the man tried to clean up, making the situation worse.

     Shen Yuan - unfortunately for him now Shen Qingqiu - couldn't blame him.  It wasn't every day that a stranger asked you to marry him in a fancy restaurant after he saved you from a beating.

     The rescue had been almost entirely accidental.  Shen Qingqiu was looking for Luo Binghe but he didn't imagine ending up in the middle of a key scene.

     Oh well, patience.  So he had already intended to intervene in the plot of the novel The rise of the boss.

    Sure as hell he wasn't going to die a second time.
    --------------------

    Transmigrated to a novel set in the 1930s, Shen Yuan must survive as the son of a powerful ex-boss without his boyfriend killing him on their honeymoon.
    And what better way to do it than to marry the protagonist and take advantage of his armor plot?
