    Summary

    When men scoff at seventeen-year-old Jemma Simmons for wanting to enter the science fair at her summer resort, she refuses to be pushed aside. Fellow teen and resident gadget guy Leo Fitz isn't allowed to participate because he's resort staff, so she suggests they team up. She could use a partner, and he could use her status - as long as they can keep it a secret.

    And maybe it's just the summer air, but the longer they work together, the more it seems like there's something else heating up between them.

    A Dirty Dancing AU.

    Reading people was another skill she'd come to possess as queen, but with that aside, this was Jane.

    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

    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

    Upholding law and order in gold-mining town Nephilim Falls, population 1,700 souls, is the responsibility of Sheriff Alec Lightwood. As it is, Alec already has his hands full with the saloons and whorehouses making tempers rise and the men rowdy when the day's mining goes badly, and the constant threat of bandits in the hills. The last thing he needs is some no-count gambler setting up a gambling hall in his town. And what kind of name is 'Magnus Bane', anyway?
