    Summary

    Building off of Artsy Hobbitses' Humaformers AU.

    Just after the Great War, the Quintessons invaded Earth and enslaved the human race. They would hold sway for twenty-five years, give or take, during which they performed experiments on the world, its people, and harvested both for resources.

    In a war-scarred London, a man named Victor Prentiss remembers what it means to have hope.

    Update schedule is M/TH. Content warnings are per chapter, but general CWs are violence, trauma, death, and nonconsensual human experimentation.

    Summary

    Trust his brother to betroth him the only Trades Unionist Valyrīha in Westeros. To betroth him to someone who loathed everything they had clawed for themselves.

    The noose hangs over Jon Snow like a shadow when Rhaenys Targaryen proposes an end to the feud between their families and an alibi to save him if he'll marry her wild little aunt, Dany. If only anything were that simple?

    Summary

    "On what kind of sick, personal vendetta are you, Lehnsherr?"

    In the shadowy, smokey alleys of Berlin in 1920s moral ambiguous creatures roam. Just like Erik, a post-war-traumatized detective with a broken heart.
    Then suddenly Jack-the-ripper-esque murders happen and all of them are weirdly tied to a British businessman with a way too cheeky grin.

    Summary

    It was the Roaring Twenties and Stede Bonnet was a wealthy land owner from New Zealand. He was as rich as could be and lived a comfortable life. But comfortable does not mean happy.

    Stuck in a loveless marriage with the need to get away, Stede decided to move to the land of the free to get into the bootlegging business and opened a Speakeasy. It was a rocky start, but he eventually got the hang of it and it was going great. That is until the notorious Mafia boss, Blackbeard, learned about him and gained an interest in who he was.

    At first the interest came from the story of a fancy man selling illegal alcohol, but then it grew after news came out that the same fancy man had some blood on his hands.

    Then it became something more when it turned out the man was actually horrible at his job.

    Summary

    "Will you keep your fancy clothes on, for me? / Can you bear a little longer to wear that leash? / My love, I swear by the air I breathe: / Sooner or later, you'll bare your teeth." - Joanna Newsom, "Monkey & Bear".

    He does not have to question if she recognizes him or not. For a few moments he thinks she is debating turning on her heel and fleeing into the crowd. Then he watches her face transform from an uncertain young woman of twenty four, to something resembling the tenacious, take-no-prisoners ambulance driver who saved his life. She squares her shoulders, marches forward, suitcase in hand. Crams her hat under her armpit to free a hand to outstretch to him.

    “Mr. Shelby,” she says. Her gloves, he notes, are brand new, possibly the most expensive item on her, which isn’t saying much. Spotless white. His hands are clean, but he can’t help but feel he’s marring them all the same. “Thank you for the tickets. And the letter.”

    “Mrs. Shelby,” he says, which a better-humored man might have managed to make sound like a playful joke. At best, it sounds like a judge pronouncing a prison sentence. A life term.

    Summary

    Do you like your Alastor ships? Well then, prepare for trouble and make it double, since here we present to you a very self-indulgent ship which is just Alastor.

    Alastor Laurent is but a simple man; give him a hug and a ham sandwich, and he’s all set for the day. Needless to say, for him, landing an internship at a radio station was a dream come true. Now, nothing could stand in the way of his aspirations — not even his supervisor, the great and esteemed Alastor Carlon, turning out to be a major ass.

    Or is he one really? Perhaps the devil isn’t as black as he is painted, and can appreciate a person wholeheartedly committed to their job. Maybe deciding the recent string of murders terrorizing New Orleans was the scoop Laurent would follow to prove to the host that he is more than a boy with the charisma of worn-out shoelaces would be a good idea… if only such wasn’t an actual hindrance to Carlon’s deadly endeavors.

    Will the brave intern make a goof of himself, or will he goof his way into the heart of the most straight-laced man in the city? Or will it all go wrong?

    Only one way to find out.

    Summary

    Visions of reuniting with his cherished wife in his splendorous home after a successful, fulfilling trip to film his latest production — the first he's traveled in a long time, as Celine never liked him being away for such long stints — shatter when little more remains in the manor of her than an envelope with his name in her handwriting, the message inside crushing him completely and sending him spiraling.

    Convinced that the only thing that could make it all worse would be for the news to get out, but unable to muster the strength or willpower to put on a smile and attend to any of his personal or professional matters, his life rapidly falls apart around him. Mark chases away everyone he can — god knows he can't trust them, least of all Damien.

    It hurts Damien to see Mark in this state, but there's only so much one man can do, or should tolerate; Mark is treating him terribly.

    Levia Chesterfield, an old but somewhat estranged friend of Mark's and the current District Attorney, volunteers to step in — if only for Damien's sake.

    Or, how we avoided what could have been.

    Summary

    "Oh, I've had dalliances here and there, that's true.” Wei Wuxian smiled, almost bitterly. “And there was someone, a long time ago, but we were parted before I found the courage to ask them how they felt about me."

    1928. Shanghai. So much has changed in nine years, and Wei Wuxian is not the boy Lan Wangji remembers from the sun-drenched days of his past, but a chance meeting with him at a party soon leads Lan Wangji to question almost everything he thought he knew.

    Summary

    150 years since the French and Prussian thrones were united under the Nassal dynasty, the Franco-Prussian Empire, and later the Franco-German then the European Empire has grown in both size and strength, becoming one of the four dominant powers on the continent, along with Austria-Hungary, the Russian Empire, and the Ottoman Empire.

    During the rule of Emperor Maximilian III, the Empire celebrates the anniversary with a large masquerade in the Palace of Versailles. But when the Emperor and a minor French nobleman, Raphael, meet due to a glass of water, they are instantly attracted to one another.

    So, after being invited onto the Imperial Train that travels all over the Empire on the Kaiserbahn, Max and Raph begin to explore their feelings for one another. Until things take a turn that neither of them were expecting, leaving them both reeling from its impact and unsure where they stand, or if they’re even safe.

    A stand-alone story of attraction, love, sex, and treason. New chapters every Monday.

    Summary

    1917. En medio de la guerra civil más grande que ha azotado a Inglaterra, el ascendido Teniente William Tomlinson requiere de toda la ayuda posible, pero no se refiere solamente a la guerra.
    Su vida perdida e infeliz le causan noches de desvelos al no comprender su tristeza.
    Solo anhelando su muerte.

    Porque ni el mismo Lucifer podrá castigarlo como Dios ya lo ha hecho mandándolo a la vida terrenal con su mendiga enfermedad.

    //

    Un hombre temeroso, dolido y sediento de amor.
    Engañado a base de la Palabra de Dios por su errónea interpretación; pero perdidamente enamorado de ese precioso cuerpo de ángel, un piloto que figura la reencarnación del fruto prohibido solo que con ojos verdes y rizos chocolate.
    (626)
