    Summary

    It is 1947 in rural Tennessee. The war is over, and life is slowly returning to normal. But not for Aldo Raine.

    Aldo struggles with survivor’s guilt, a taste for whiskey that started back in the 20s during his days of running moonshine, and scars from a lifetime of hell.

    When a woman from his past returns to Maynardville, he gets a shot at a second chance at life. The only problem? She is running from something, and he doesn’t know what.

    Summary

    “See, there’s this radio competition," Luke says. "A ‘Tribute to the Troops’ songwriting contest. The winner’ll be featured in some big picture. And I’ve been trying to get my name out there, you know? Give my music an audience. I figure, what better way to do that than by winning a nationwide contest and getting my face in a Hollywood film?”

    “You’ve certainly got the stubborn ambition to make it to Hollywood, I’ll give you that,” Alex mutters.

    (Or, the Bandstand AU that no one asked for.)

    Summary

    Sequel to D'énigmes et Guerre.

    So, here she was, disillusioned and sneaking her way through Diagon Alley like a common criminal.

    After the warning that Minister Leach had given her, she was trying to remain as inconspicuous as possible, but clearly, whoever was behind...whatever it was, really didn't want to be discovered, and was willing to kill to keep it that way.

    The year is 1947, and Hermione seems to have fallen right on a devious operation, one that she has every intention of blowing out of the water, but at what cost?

    Summary

    Just about NO ONE has written Niffty-centric fics (which is very much justified since she says like, four sentences in the pilot and all and the pilot has characters like Angel who are also really fun to write) and I fucking love Niffty AND I DON’T KNOW WHY, so I’m gonna write a fanfiction about her. I can’t wait for canon to blow it out of the water!!!

    The stranger doesn’t move from where they stand, but their smile for a minute, looks a little less threatening and a little more amused. She sits up on her elbows, stares at him, wide eyed. “Wh—“ Her voice catches in her throat, she’s too shocked for words. The man—a cross between a man and a deer, a mix between a shadow and static—meets her eyes.

     

    ...Just to double check, she pinches herself.

    Summary

    Lot #7770

    1947 Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd Letter.

    Description:
    Antarctic explorer Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd uses a gorgeous letterhead to send a typed "gag" letter to Secretary of The Navy, James V. Forrestal. Ten typed pages are 10x7.5" and signed in 8/10 black fountain pen ink at the bottom. The letter is tanned a bit darker than the balance of the page from years of storage, but the piece still presents very well, with original mailing folds the only other condition issue worthy of note.

    Summary

    Havers looked mostly the same as the last time the Captain had seen him, that day he left Button House seven years ago. It was unreal. His handsome face, only a few lines at the corners of his eyes and his mouth, nothing like the lines that have settled into the Captain’s own face. He wasn’t in his uniform - of course he wasn’t, but still it threw the Captain off for a moment. It felt as if Nurse Jacobs had opened a door straight to the past, and the Captain wanted to step in and shut the door firmly behind him.

    Summary

    "In times of war, you do what you must, become what you must. Some embrace it, some try to resist it, and others abuse it. I am guilty of all three."

    Virginia Carroll has been fighting her whole life, against herself and against what she is drawn to become. Burdened by her mother's scars and haunted by the shadows of a war gone by, Virginia, codenamed Eris, is pushed to the brink in Normandy risking life and discovery to gather intelligence.
    Her orders change and Virginia must embrace Eris fully to survive Europe. She can't afford to let her regrets and fears weigh her down as the Airborne falls to her rescue. She most certainly can't be distracted as she is recalled from the front and the real work begins.
    In times of war, you do what needs to be done and Virginia knows it all too well. But the longer she fights, she begins to wonder: at the end of the war, will she still be Virginia Carroll or will Eris, weighed by her mother's past, be all that's left?

    Summary

    September 1st 1939, Germany declared war on Poland. May 8th 1945, Germany defeats Europe, and the German Empire rises again.
    Born into the German Royal Household of Battenberg she knows nothing of the world before Germany’s most significant victory.
    Taught only of Germany’s greatness and that of its people, she quietly accepts the narrative sold.
    History is written by the victors, after all.
    So when a letter crosses her desk describing the world before the rise of the Third Reich, she finds herself enthralled to learn more.
    She knows that handling relics of the past is forbidden. Being caught with them is a promise of ending up in a concentration camp or receiving a visit from The Gestapo or the Einsatzgruppen. Still, she is enthralled by the mystery of the letter.
    Who wrote it, and why did they give it to her?
    Learning of a Europe that no longer exists is risky, but her curiousness slowly becomes an obsession she can’t let go of. She wants to know about the world left forgotten and forced to be erased by the man the German Empire worships like he is a God.
    Even if it means learning of the horrors committed by those who she believes are fair, kind and honest people.

    Summary

    Lukas Bondevik didn’t expect the one time he met with a Danish artist to lead anywhere. By all means, it shouldn’t have, but it’s 1961 and in divided Berlin, it’s hard not to see someone again.

     Inspired by the Elvis Presley song of the same name.
