    Summary

    A painfully oblivious Valjean falls slowly and agonisingly in love with Inspector Javert without realising quite what's happening, while wrestling with his dual identity as the Mayor of Montreuil-sur-Mer.

    This Brick-centric story is written in a meandering 'slice of life' style with extremely slow burn romance.

    Summary

    Peggy was lucky she and Michael were approximately the same height and weight; it made it frighteningly easy to declare herself Michael Carter, private with the 14th Regiment, preparing to go into battle to preserve the Union and abolish slavery from the nation. Steve wasn't pleased with her decision, but he knew better than to argue with her. He resolved he would do what was necessary to keep her secret and he knew it would be easy to convince the fellas to keep it as well. Now if he could just stop looking at her like she hung the moon.

It's not a month later when she reads an add in the paper of a man named Ben Solo in the Wyoming Territory looking for a wife. She didn't expect much to come of her letter of reply, he must have had dozens. In August, he sent her a telegram asking for her hand - now it's September, and she finds herself leaving the stagecoach in the small town of Green River.

    Summary

    The year is 1933, the United States is stricken with a seemingly endless depression. The stock market's crash affects every aspect of daily life. Billions of dollars have been lost, countless hardworking Americans have been laid off and contaminated with extreme poverty. Many people live from paycheck to paycheck, unable to provide necessities for themselves and their families.

    Spending money on entertainment is out of the question for most. So a very inexpensive media outlet arose: Radio. Some programs gained large and loyal followings, while others struggled to gain traction considering the immense numbers of competitive shows.

    Arin Hanson has built a small but respectable show with his co-host Jon. But when Jon leaves the program it's up to Arin to save his life's work from tanking.

    Summary

    From as far back as he could remember, it was the fondest wish of Credence Barebone to have a friend. Someone in the world to whom he could turn when life was cruel, as it so often was. Someone in the world who cared for him, and someone who would let him care for them back.

    But sometimes... to have someone even more than a friend... he thought that might be nice, too.

    Summary

    I'm setting this story in the Fascist Dystopia that I know best, which is Sinclair Lewis' prescient book, It Can't Happen Here. If I do this thing right, I'll add in enough details that you don't need to have read the book to understand the story.

    Basically, the story is this: A Fascist gets elected as President of the US. One of his associates knows of Tony's homosexuality and alcoholism, and uses those to pressure him to work for the Administration. While in Washington, Tony meets Loki. Loki is a trans-character (although in the context of the time this story takes place, it's not completely understood that way). She's working as a sex-worker, victimized by members of the Fascist government. Tony takes her away from that, and gives her a new life as his partner. They take in an orphan, Peter Parker, and make a family for themselves.

    Tony finally manages to escape himself. In exile in Mexico, he tells the story of his past, and nerves himself to go back and rescue his family.

    Summary

    “I think I have some news,” says Anne.

    Phillip looks up from his desk, brows raising at the sight of his wife. Anne says “news” the way anyone else might say “severed toe” or “highly contagious disease”. He sits up straight.

    “What is it? Are you alright?”

    “Fine, I’m —“ Anne says hastily, then cuts herself off. There’s a flicker of panic in her eyes. “I’m great.”

    Summary

    He couldn't really blame them, he would have probably made the same assumptions were he in their shoes, but he was tired of being prejudged. “Look, I signed up for this shitshow, and I wouldn't have done it if I weren't prepared to get my hands a little dirty.”

    “If you think this is getting your hands dirty, then you’re greener than I thought.” The agent paused, as if she were about to say something else, but then took a sip of wine instead. “I know why you were late tonight. You probably spent hours wandering around the city, maybe halfway down the bottle, wondering if you'd done the right thing today, questioning if you were still a good person?”

    “Wrong. I was never a good person,” he said, a little too quickly, then drained the rest of his glass in one go. He refilled it with a shaky hand, the crimson wine sloshed over the lip of the goblet onto the white tablecloth beneath.

    Her head tipped to the side as she stared at his face, expression unmoved. “Telling yourself that isn't going to make this job any easier, and it's definitely not going to make it true. You wouldn't be sitting here, if it were.”
