    Summary

    Katherine throws a Christmas party for the newsies but forgets to invite Davey. What does Davey say? Nothing, because he’s an idiot with zero sense of self-worth. But it becomes evident that there’s a lot Katherine and the newsies don’t know about what it’s like to be David Jacobs and they’re going to learn- quickly.

    Summary

    When Jack was young, he and his brother Crutchie were in a car accident that killed both their parents and left Crutchie's leg messed up permanently. Jack escaped with only a scar on his chin, and the memories of that awful day. Now college-aged, Jack finds himself falling for his best friend, Davey Jacobs. When a terrible accident happens, Jack must confront his past trauma and acknowledge his own feelings before it's too late.

    Summary

    “What about friends?” Jack asked.
    A small smile crept on to the other boy’s face as he grabbed Jacks hands and linked his two pointer fingers together and then switched them.
    “Friends,” David said as he signed it on his own.
    “Is that what we are?” He asked. Jack just nodded his head as he focused on how to make the sign look as perfect as David’s.

    There in a quiet classroom, empty of everybody but two boys, a friendship began.

    Summary

    "You are..." Katherine paused, and David tilted his head so he could see her as she stared up at the roof of their tent. "You are like the man the Ancients talked about. David? He battled a giant, Goliath."
    David hummed, and Katherine sighed. "His giant was smaller, though, but he was on his own."
    She looked over at him, and she smiled, but her face still hinted at the bitter sadness beneath it. "But at least he had a choice."

    Summary

    "I ain't betrayin' my brothers." I say stubbornly, trying to keep my tone level. "The strike ain't goin' down, ya can't put cuffs on freedom."
    "Fine." Pulitzer says tightly. "Mr. Snyder, if you please."
    Heavy metal cuffs locked tightly around my wrists, forcing my arms behind my back.
    Glares, insults, and shoves.
    The carriage ride to the Refuge seems like it takes centuries, but in reality it was really only about 20 minutes.

    Summary

    That is, “in New York.”

    A dime-novel romance–-or rather three. Featuring Skittery, Tumbler, Snoddy, David, and of course Jack, based on the universe of “Jack Kelly, Cowboy Hero” (jackcowboyhero.tumblr.com) and presented by the Editor thereof and yours truly.

    Here you’ll find mostly stories but also meta, headcanons, playlists, a few pictures, and lots and lots of research.

    "Jack Kelly, Cowboy Hero" is a genius blog that follows the newsboys in the years after the strike in 1899. It’s as if Jack himself is running the blog, sharing pictures that he likes, answering questions (often about horses), and letting his friends tell stories–for better or worse.

    Summary

    This season, we have eight brand new bakers who will seize the day for eighteen brand new bakes. We’ll find out once and for all, who is the baking king of New York. And, that starts right now! 

     

     

    Someone high up decided it would be a good idea to bring together eight bakers, one chaperone with some dubiously legal guardianship responsibilities, two comedians with family problems, and a pair of judges and put them in a six week pressure cooker. What could possibly go wrong? Nothing.

    ...Except maybe family drama, old allegiances, possible new flames ("The blow torches are not for setting recipes on fire"), fallen cakes, and raw dough... on this season of The New York Bake Off.

    Summary

    Pain was something that came with the “poor kid on the streets of New York” gig.

    Pain, dirt, holes in shoes and clothes, hunger pangs, that came with it.

    All that came right along with living day to day on a couple dimes a week. Fights were unavoidable when you were in charge of a group of kids, or even if you weren’t, really, and when the choice was between new shoes, lunch, or a place to sleep out of the rain or snow, well, medicine cost more than going hungry a few days. There was one right choice and two wrongs ones there, for the most part.

    Summary

    Sarah Jacobs is in love with Jack Kelly. She knows (though she shouldn't) that her brother David is also in love with Jack. Katherine and David love each other, too, in their own way. With Katherine's help, Sarah is going to make sure everyone gets to be happy.

    In other news, Jack and David uncover a conspiracy against the railroad unions, Katherine finds a new story in a familiar location, and Sarah finds herself drawn into the work of the International Ladies Garment Workers Union.

    (Or, the fic in which the author has historical notes at the end, and tries her best to explain the complexities of marriages and same-sex relationships in the 1900s - while also letting her characters push the boundaries of said relationships.)
