    Summary

    Summary

    Prohibition Era, Ebott City: A place where humans and monsters have always existed together with a strained and somewhat fragile peace. Most of the city’s denizens simply want to live out their daily lives in a simple cohabitation. Life, however is rarely so easy. There are five large gangs within the city limits, one of the more powerful ones being made up completely of monsters. The balance of power between the four human mafia gangs and the monster mob is delicate, spurring racism and acts of violence from both sides.
    Frisk, the younger sister of infamous detective Chara Dreemurr, receives an anonymous call with clues to the case against her older brother’s sudden mysterious disappearance. Unable to obtain police assistance, she takes up her brother’s mantle and plunges into the seedy underbelly of Ebott City’s criminal organizations. Each new piece of information only brings about more questions as the web of confusion and deceit is spun around her. Who can she trust in this dangerous game? Will she find Chara before it’s too late or will she become hopelessly entangled in the sinister lifestyles of the mob?

    Summary

    “You know me?”

    “By reputation. Poe says you’re a swell tango dancer. I’d love to find out for myself if you’re as good as everyone claims.”

    The first, slow notes began but she still hadn’t embraced him for the dance.

    “Don’t worry, sweetheart. I’ll take good care of you.”

    “I’m sure you would. But I want to really test you. Be my follow?”

    “What?” he asked, aghast. Men may dance with men in the tango, taking lead or follow roles as it suited them. But women were never the leads.

    “You heard me, big guy."

     

    Ben Solo (aka Kylo Ren) is a seducer on the dance floor. But when he runs into a woman who wants him to follow her lead, who will seduce whom?

    Summary

    Some people would say that he’d been born with the world at his feet. If he were to be honest with himself, part of his way of life stemmed directly from having things given to him on a silver platter, and he had learned to despise it. Antonio Stark, by principle, hated to be handed things — literally and figuratively. He hated things that he could get easily, so of course he chased what was often too far out of his reach. That didn’t mean he never bothered trying.

    Or, Tony Stark, the youngest son of the most infamous Italian mafia in Manhattan, falls in love with Irish mob boss, Steve Rogers.

    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

    Charon's time after the war is measured solely by the repetitive track that is his employment in Elysium. Haute Speakeasy for the eminent and influential in New York. The evenings are as boring and sedate as physically possible when manning a bar at the height of prohibition.

    Interruptions are not requested or desired, but they have arrived; in the shape and form of one smartly dressed pianist, dominating the stage, soon to be consuming his every waking moment.

    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

                  The year is 1922 and a speakeasy called The Patron is thriving in its element. But it wasn't always like this. A year ago, it had been in disrepair and ready to vanish into obscurity. But Patton Moore wasn't ready to shut his doors just yet.
                  The year of 1921 was one change after the other. The Kingsley twins returned and shined as musicians, familiar faces guarded the doors and bar... Calling in the cavalry meant bringing in an old friend for help, and mob bosses aren't the first thought when it comes to investing in a bar. So what happened?
                  What happened to a place that was lousy with misfortune to make it change?
                  Pull up a chair. Sit down. We'll pour you a drink and tell you a story.

    Summary

    Earth-20: An earth based on the Prohibition era

    Sometimes it's best to not piss off someone. Especially if the person is the leader of a mafia, and his partner is a lunatic.

    Even better, don't even bother to say a word.

    But who could blame someone if they were also dressed in the most damming thing in the world.

    Summary

    The year is 1930 and the economy is unravelling. In the wake of the Prohibition Act, bathtub and basement operations have sprung up across Chicago: illegally brewing and distributing alcohol. Yeonjun is a burlesque dancer under the stage name Ginger Rose Lee. Kai is an employed kid with enough training and talent to find his way around a piano.

    -----

    Yeonjun turned his back to Kai and pushed himself up in one motion, pressing his bare skin to the wood of the piano. He lay fully across the lid, stretching his legs as if he was waiting for a lover to come between them.

    He arched his spine, twisting in time to every note that Kai played. Then he sat up, slow and determined, tipping himself onto his knees and unlacing his bustier. He threw his head back, turning away from the audience.

    When he peeled away the satin between his thighs, leaving himself completely nude, it was for Kai’s eyes only.

    [ON HIATUS FOR THE SUMMER]

    To drown is not merely subjective to water--indeed, there are a great number of situations as well as substances people may find themselves hopelessly submerged in.

    Love.
    Hatred.
    Obsession.
    Addiction.
    Delight.
    Sorrow.
    Greed.
    Debt.

    Or even...ink.

    But as every body of water has a source...every story has a beginning.
