    The walls are starting to close in for the Lackadaisy and Marigolds alike, and both are feeling the pressure. With Lackadaisy practically miles behind their opponent, all is starting to seem lost. But, things can still get a lot worse. And maybe, if everyone plays their cards right, a lot better.

    "In fact, that's why I'm here— with your interests in mind— suggesting you step down. There are less diplomatic ways I could go about it."

    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 and grows fearful that he may have just bitten off more than he can chew.

    Summary

    *Now Completed!*

     

    “But I’m already Nan’s human,” Esme whispered.

    “No,” said Edward forcefully. “No you are not. You are ESME’S human and you will do as you please.”

     
    Everyone knows the story of Carlisle and Esme, but what if he hadn’t been the first vampire that she ever met? What if someone else got there first…and was thwarted?

    This is the story of how Esme found freedom from abuse through the Vampire community and how the Mainstreaming movement was started by the passion of the young human Suffragette, wait, apologies, SUFFRAGIST, in 1920s New York…

    …Alternatively, the story of bitter hatred between Carlisle Cullen and Nan Flanagan and the aching question that will always remain: who deserved Esme more?…

    How about YOU decide?

    Rated M for a reason.

    Summary

    Love is a shambling thing, gray-faced and gasping. It moves in from the west, the setting sun behind it. Those who see it avert their eyes. Love does not eat or drink, love separates its many teeth and consumes. Love is a shambling thing, grey-faced and gasping. -Let’s not dwell on our corpse strewn past. Let’s celebrate our corpse strewn future!

    Expect: Sex. Romance. Freedom. Violence. Mystery. Intrigue. Embarrassment. Candy. Vapors. Swords (and other weaponry). Blood. Fire. Consequences. Black Humor. Kink-shaming fine art. Beauty. Elegant and finely crafted links. Music. Mercy. Reconciliation. Murk. Mire. Liars. Truth. Magic. God. Miracles. Monsters. Cold hard science. Dick jokes. Vaj jokes. Even more fart jokes. Drugs. Politics. Revolution. Love. The glorious war of sibling affection. Ghosts. In this Family, we bury our secrets and our relatives alive. Speak, or eat your heart raw and flush with blood. Wolves. Winter. Demons. Hell. Freedom. Beauty. Truth. Love.

    The secret to a long life lies in how acutely you perceive Time; and if you're afraid of the dark, which can't be seen through, don't be. Most of the truly frightening things are too small to be seen or inside your body already.

    Summary

    Chicago, 1929
    America's experiment with banning the sale of alcohol has largely failed. However, the laws are still in effect, meaning that most people make use of illegal speakeasies to get their fix. Owners of such establishments and illegal liquor distributors are living like kings, but tensions between rival gangs are higher than ever, and threatening to break out into all-out war.

    Enter Eva Mohn, an aspiring singer from a small town who gets more than she bargained for when she takes a gig at an underground speakeasy and meets Christoffer Schistad- bootlegger, skirt chaser, and known associate of infamous crime boss William Magnusson.
