    Summary

    'And now ladies and gentlemen, the Kitty Kat Lounge is pleased to present, our very own little songbird, the woman in red, Lizzy Bennet!' Hoots and whistles mingled with applause as the curtain opened to reveal a small, dark-haired woman in a red dress. William heard her before he saw her; her voice was deep, sultry, and smoky as she sang the first words of a slow-tempoed 'I Ain't Got Nobody'. Every cell in his body responded to her in a way he could hardly comprehend. By the time she came into his line of vision, he was enraptured. When he saw her, he was a lost man.

    Her black hair was short and marcelled, accentuating her fine features. Her eyes were equally dark, but even from his faraway seat William could see them sparkle with vivacity. The red dress she wore was tight along her boyish chest and hips, with fringe beginning at waist level to decorate the front of the dress. It ended at a scandalous location just above her knees. Everything about her was slight, but she exuded solid strength and confidence. This was not a woman to be trifled with. William found himself wanting to trifle with her most desperately.

    Summary

    In 1920s Atlanta, the Eden's Gate speakeasy is the talk of the town. Behind a secret wall in a Christian bookstore lies flappers in golden halos, a speciality cocktail to die for, and a new headline act: a slick young jazz singer by the name of Rook.

    The Rook is charming, handsome, and quick with a wisecrack... and so is Eden's Gate's flamboyant director, who has just caught his eye.

    Liquor ain't a sin, why should lust be?

    Summary

    "She's a cancelled stamp, Troy."

    Oh, but she wasn't. Miss Elle Baker is the flapper niece of industrialist Julius Little, and neither of them know the other well, but they're about to face off in the streets of Manhattan. Julius, thinking she's a young lady in need of a chaperone and distraction, provides just that as he tries to make her go quietly home to New Jersey. He's assigned his right hand man, Troy Bradshaw, to take her sightseeing while she's on holiday in the city. But once Elle arrives it's clear that this isn't quite a holiday and Troy decides right away that he's more taken with the lovely Elle than all the sights of New York.

    A prompt for Elle/Troy -- Holiday. It turned into something that isn't quite a holiday in New York City.

    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

    Flug wasn't exactly your average person, but from his perspective, he led a reasonably normal life. Sure, he comes from a distinguished family and works as an inventor of all things, but he wasn't exactly someone you'd see on the streets and go "Look! It's Flug!" He lived the same way any ordinary middle-to-upper-class American did in the 1920s. He worked hard all day and then partied just as, if not harder, at night. Minus the partying, of course. And if you asked him, it was becoming rather dull. It didn't seem as though any fancy jazz club could fill in what his life seemed to be lacking, either. But this was the roaring 20's! Where was the electricity in his life? The adventure? Didn't he deserve some excitement, too? But Mr. Slys soon discovers that you should be careful what you wish for when he befriends a certain man one fateful night. It doesn't take long before he grows fearful that he may have just bitten off more than he can chew...

    Summary

    Peter, Ray, and Egon have set up a popular speak easy under an old firehouse in 1920's New York. The booze is tops, the waitresses are pretty, and their house singer is a fiery red-head that keeps the crowd coming back for more. But the club and its fab gin are being watched not only by the fuzz, but by a mafia man looking to be more than just a lowly thug. Winston (an undercover cop) knows more than he's letting on, and Peck (a lawyer for the Bureau of Prohibition) is setting off Peter's warning bells, but everyone is caught in the middle when the boys have to make a difficult decision about the future of the club and their own lives.

    (I'm probably over-rating this, but better safe than sorry)

    Summary

    In the bustling city of New Orleans during the Jazz Age, something rather miraculous happens in Ochaco Uraraka's life…

    Though she would quickly correct that statement and call it the absolute worst thing to have ever happened to her in her entire life! And she had just turned 24 just a few months prior, so she was still young! She had thought that the sudden lost chance to buy the old sugar mill for her and her daddy's dream restaurant would be the worst thing to happen, surely it was!

    But fate seemed to have a sick sense of humor, when it sends a certain prince-turned-frog hopping her way… oh, why did life in general have to be so cruel to her? It doesn't help when Prince Midoriya's curse not only affects his companions, but rubs off on her too when she decides to help.

    Life lesson learned: Never kiss a frog.

    Summary

    "I don't want to let go of you. Never again."

    "Crowley," Aziraphale breathed, and for one heady, impossible moment Crowley thought the miracle would be even bigger than he thought, that the embrace and the my darling would be followed with a kiss, because Aziraphale's gaze was on his mouth and there was a heat to it, as if it was tinged with desire as well as tenderness.

    Summary

    Rey sets her gin down on the mahogany desk and stares at Ben.
    "You want to bring me to Millennium Island? You've gone mad. Your old money friends would chase me out with pitchforks before I ever managed to catch your art thief. Which would be highly unlikely to begin with, given that I have no plausible reason for being there. The game would be up the minute I arrived."
    Ben leans back in his arm chair, his eyes hooded, and takes a long drag on his cigarette.
    "Not if you agreed to marry me."

'What kinda name is Alastor?' Angel thought to himself, swearing he’d heard the name offhandedly mentioned in bible study. 'Sounds like a damn demon.'
