    Summary

    This story is set in Hollywood, in the 1940s: How do eternals live among mortals? At 1500 years old, Thor and Loki are just beginning to grapple with the question. Thor is finding that his old live as a sportsman no longer has enough meaning to satisfy him. Loki for his (and her) part, discovers there is more to life than accum8ulating money and power, and that falling in love with a mortal isn't just possible, sometimes it's inevitable. Please comment if you need more explanations about anything. Sometimes I have the bad habit of assuming that because something is obvious to me, the author, that means it's going to be obvious to everybody else. Now, on wiith the story.

    *** OK, let's be honest: even though William McTavish is the stated main character, at its heart, this is really a BDSM/piss kink Daddy Kylo fic.

    Summary

    It is early 1936 and Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire are at the top of their game. Hit after hit have made the dancing-acting duo household names and famous beyond their wildest dreams. Their careers are red hot, and their movies are the only thing keeping RKO Studio out of bankruptcy. Fred's son was born in January, right after the wrap of "Follow the Fleet", and his relationship with his wife is a cold partnership of convenience. Ginger's marriage to Lew Ayers is on the rocks, both due to Ginger and Fred's affair, and her insistence on being a working actress with her own career. However, with the birth of Freddie Jr., Ginger has called for a break. Will they call the whole thing off or make up? "Swing Time", frequently hailed as their best movie, will tell the tale.

    La perfectly swell romance."

    "Never Gonna Dance" by Jerome Kern
