    Summary

    Every Greek tragedy needs an Antigone or a Danaë. Every King Lear needs a Cordelia.

    Clara Thompson, like everyone around her, is learning to cope in a post-World War I reality. The reality includes Prohibition, which her father (a dirty politician) sees as a chance to consolidate wealth and power. Her pseudo-brother Jimmy is physically back in Atlantic City, but his soul still seems elsewhere. After her father banishes Jimmy to Chicago, Clara chases after him and meets Richard Harrow, a young vet whose war damage isn't confined to his face. Meanwhile, her father's machinations put everyone's lives in danger and contribute to changing familial ties.

    Summary

    "Hello, my dear. Its a pleasure to meet you!"

    Flashes from last night blurred your vision and you felt chills run up your spine as you remembered the psychotic look in his eyes. You slowly stepped back, your hands folding in front of you.

    Then he chuckled lowly and lifted his oval rimmed glasses.

    "I'd stay right where you are, if I were you, darling."

    Being in the wrong place at the wrong time doesn't even begin to describe your situation when you find yourself at the mercy of a murderous radio host.

    Summary

    Moving to New Orleans to start up her rehabilitation hotel for criminals hasn't been all berries for Charlie, especially if everybody thinks you're some Dumb Dora with a complete horseshit plan.

    And it's another jam that she's starting to get stuck on Alastor, the charming yet eccentric radio host next door who's never fully dressed without a smile.

    But she's all smiles too, and that's made her out to be quite the dish to Alastor - in all senses of the word - and boy, was he ready to be entertained.

    Summary

    AU set in 1920's America
    Illegal booze is flowing through the country and families fight for control over the bootlegger's market. Atlantic City boss Petyr "Littlefinger" Baelish, self-made man, sits comfortably in his kingdom of gambling, whores, and the the liquor-filled nights of the shore. But he soon finds himself in a precarious position between the Lannister's of New York and the Starks of Chicago.

    Note: This is mostly for fun, a far reach from cannon or cannon timelines.

    Summary

    Speakeasies and roadsters, prohibition and organized crime. New York is no stranger to the furthest reaches of man’s desire. Some want fame and will do anything they can to get it, others want money. Some just want to solve the damn problem. It isn’t all so linear, and it’s hardly a piece of cake. There’s peril, romance, and a very fine line between the two.

    A.K.A - A 1920s Newsies AU; Davey’s a detective/investigative journalist, Jack’s an artist by day and a performer by night, and Spot and Race are rival gang leaders at each other’s throats.

    Summary

    Often folks would ask, upon learning where I’m from, is whether the Midwest “really is all that ‘wild.’” I used to shrug it off as mere East Coast bourgeois ignorance. But I’d soon realize that what they really wanted was a sense of my survival skills. For the underbelly of New York City, battleground between police and gangs and moonshiners, was wilder than anyone’s dreams—and darker than anyone’s nightmares.

    Summary

    “it’s a beautiful day, today. don’t ya’ agree?”

    The human turned to her right startled, by the sudden newcomer. For a moment, she was speechless.

    Frisk was accustomed to the different looks that monsters generally had. Some were small, while others were huge. Some were more human-like, and then there were others that were the most unique being she had seen. The monster standing before her was no different. He stood just a few inches taller than herself, a creature of pure bone and magic, looking very much identical to an animated skeleton of a human. His eyes were nothing, just white specks of magic in a hollow cavern. A smug toothy grin of false joy...

    It was his clothes, however, that rattled her. He was dressed like the man killers roaming the streets of her beloved city....

    Summary

    As an up-and-coming scientist, you're a firm believer in logic and have always thought the tales of humans and monsters to be myths, a theory you're forced to accept as wrong when these begin to show up at the speakeasy you're a part of.

    It's the not-so roarin' nineteen twenties considering your bleak and overall lowly position in the world. Shifting between jobs as the town's bookworm and a singer for a speakeasy, while dangerous, doesn't bring much conflict or excitement into your life, most of it spent trying to survive and keeping your family afloat. Things take a turn when a gun's pointed at your head, your saviour being a large goatman and his helper a skeleton, both who help you live undercover, unnoticed, and underground.
