    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

    In the 1920's era of prohibition, there lies a life of glitz and glamour that everyone seeks. Fresh off another world tour, and retired from the famous Ballet Russes, Viktor searches for something to spark his passions once more, and it could be that he has found just that. Former dancer Katsuki Yuuri catches the eye of renowned ballet dancer Viktor Nikiforov as he must fill in one night at one of the up and coming speakeasies on the late night Chicago strip.

    -*-*-*-

    There was a drop in the beat, and the dancer threw a hand to his lips, feigning a wide-eyed gasp, as his leg kicked up beside his head. On two feet once more, he turned over his shoulder and blew a kiss, complete with a knowing wink, towards the audience.

    Viktor was enthralled.

    Summary

    Once upon a time in the 1920s, a young and poor Castiel Milton comes to New York to become a wealthy man. He rents a beach house at the Long Island shore in order to learn about finance and the stock market, but is quickly distracted by his rich and iridescent neighbour, The Great Dean Winchester. This tycoon once courted Castiel's cousin Zelda. Dean and Castiel are almost immediately attracted to each other and start a passionate affaire, which the prudish Castiel never dared to imagine. But as all-consuming this love is, Dean regularly pushes Castiel away and tells him he is only really devoted to Zelda.
    After struggles with his self confidence issues, Castiel learns that Dean is truly, deeply and madly in love with him, but is afraid by the thought of being a Homosexual and losing his reputation. With the gilded glitter of the Roaring Twenties, the always present threat of war, its danger to the human soul and the knowledge that their passion for each other is a crime, can Dean and Castiel finally find a place for their forbidden love?

    Summary

    “You do this, you do. You take the things you love
    and tear them apart
    or you pin them down with your body and pretend they're yours.
    So, you kiss him, and he doesn't move, he doesn't
    pull away, and you keep on kissing him. And he hasn't moved,
    he's frozen, and you've kissed him, and he'll never
    forgive you, and maybe now he'll leave you alone.”

    A brutal murder on Christmas Eve abruptly pulls one Detective Nikiforov out of a holiday he was just starting to tolerate, and forces him to come to terms with demons he's been pretending not to see. On that same night, a man walks into a bar and waltzes into his life, lighting a spark that grows into a monster of its own.

    “Almost nobody dances sober, unless they happen to be insane.” ~HP Lovecraft

    On a night at a speakeasy, Credence and company just happen to encounter Percival Graves, Credence's long-time crush.

    Summary

    In the time of prohibition and abnormals, those with genetic mutations, Marco Bodt is situated neatly between a rock and a suspicious place. As an abnormal with a genetic mutation of enhanced strength, Marco prefers to keep knowledge of his true life swept beneath a rather heavy rug. When a waiter at the diner he frequents every Friday night for a strawberry milkshake begins to flirt with him, he finds it more than a touch odd. Unsure if the man is honestly interested, trying to get close to him to kill him, or is a cop, Marco devises a few plans to shake him loose and figure him out. When none work and he discovers Jean is just a regular guy with a genuine interest, he takes him out a roller rink where more than a few mishaps befall them. By the end of the night, Marco is convinced Jean is crazier than a box of frogs, but didn't mind that the night ended with a few kissess. The next morning a note is delivered to his place of work; someone has kidnapped Jean. Why would someone kidnap him after one night together? Why had Jean waited months before making his move? What was going on? Was it a trap; he didn't know, but he fully intended to find out.

    Summary

    “Humo de cigarro y puro es lo que lo recibe, humo que tamiza la, de por sí, baja luz de las bombillas; jazz acariciándole el oído e invitándole a quedarse por siempre y entregarle su vida a la clandestinidad, al tabaco cubano, al alcohol, al sexo, a la música, a las apuestas, al romance”
