    Summary

    “Gege,” the far too handsome man called from the other side of the table, and Xie Lian looked at him, fighting the sensation of his cheeks flushing. “Gege can sit here.” The handsome man moved furtner in on the couch he was sitting on, and Xie Lian nodded, taking a place beside him. It was rather tight, their thighs pressing against each other to fit them both. The man didn’t seem to mind however, so Xie Lian didn’t mention it either.
    “Xie Lian, this is Hua Cheng,” Shi Qingxuan introduced. “He owns this club.”

    Summary

    King's Landing, 1920: At the train station, people bustle past, sweltering under the station’s glass roof like plants wilting in a conservatory. Jaime stands and waits for the 11:40 train from Sunspear. He is early, and the wait is long enough the heat gets to him, sweat beading under his collar, so he leans his cane against the brick wall behind him and takes off his jacket, laying it neatly across the handle of the luggage cart. Perhaps the Westerlands will provide the chill in the air he’s been craving, as they will be getting out of the city soon enough.

    Summary

    All Nicole Haught wants is to mind her own business and keep herself and her little family alive. But when she meets Wade Earp, she can’t help sticking her neck out for him. She finds him a job working next to her at the steel mill, and then she finds herself getting fond of him. Unusually fond.

    All Waverly Earp wants is a few hot meals and a roof over her head. Her new job promises all that and more. Maybe too much more: she falls head over heels for coworker Cole Haught. Waverly’s never been good at hiding how she feels, but she has to learn fast. No one can find out that Wade Earp’s in love with Cole Haught... least of all Cole himself.

    The more Waverly and Nicole tiptoe around their feelings for each other, hiding behind the guises of Wade and Cole, the more their secrets slip out, including one that surprises them: they've both been wronged by the same family.

    If they work together, they just might set things right.

    Summary

    In an effort to escape his duties as the only son of one of the most prominent families in the Chicago mafia gang the Death Eaters, Theo Nott Jr. moves to a small cottage on the island of West Egg just outside of New York City. Planning to spend the summer of 1922 studying bonds, his vision of a quiet few months is interrupted when he gets caught in the complicated and tumultuous love story of his cousin, Hermione Granger, and his neighbor, Draco Malfoy.

    This story initially follows the plot of F. Scott Fitzgerald's amazing novel The Great Gatsby, but eventually veers off into its own plot line involving the Death Eaters and the race to save a romance that has endured through time and circumstance. Mostly narrated by Theo Nott with some chapters from Draco's POV, with appearances by Pansy Parkinson, Ron Weasley, Blaise Zabini, Harry Potter, Lavender Brown, Seamus Finnegan, and Tom Riddle.

    Title comes from one of the original titles of F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel, before it became The Great Gatsby.

    Summary

    “CAREER OPPORTUNITY”, the newspaper advert read. “LOOKING FOR A MAN OF LETTERS WITH EDUCATION IN THE FIELDS OF HISTORY, ANTHROPOLOGY, ARCHEOLOGY, AND THE OCCULT.”

    Waverly Earp was certainly no man, but she checked all other boxes, quite better than any other man might.

    “SALARY WILL COME IN THE FORM OF ONE (1) $28.75 CHEQUE AND NEGOTIATE ONWARD.”

    Waverly supposed that was less than ideal. But she had to admit, it was certainly better than what she was making at Shorty's right now.

    “PLEASE VISIT ONE N. HAUGHT AT 465 ON BROADWAY BETWEEN THE HOURS OF 9 AM AND 2 PM. PLEASANT DEMEANOR, GOOD APPEARANCE. PLEASE ARRIVE SOBER.”

    Waverly liked to believe she was quite pleasant, and certainly good looking by the standards of most men (unfortunately). On the matter of sobriety, well- she wasn’t Wynnona, at least.

    -----

    AKA, waverly is an anthropologist, nicole is a Great War vet turned cyrptozoologist, its the 1920s and they have fun.
