Thanks for those who came up with ideas for the name of Dave’s Speakeasy! I love my followers!

➼ The Singing Fool Movie Storyline:
After years of hopeful struggle, Al Stone (Jolson) is on his way. “I’m Sittin’ on Top of the World”, he sings to an appreciative speakeasy crowd. But, as Al discovers, getting there is one thing. Staying there is another. Singing waiter Stone gets his huge break on a magical night when his song wows a big-time producer and a gold-digging showgirl he fancies. Broadway success and marriage follow, but sure enough, hard times are on the way. Al’s fickle wife abandons him, taking the beloved son he calls Sonny Boy with her. Heartbroken, Al becomes a devastated loner until friends from the speakeasy that launched his career rescue him from a life on the streets. Soon, Al is back in lights. But another crisis awaits: Sonny Boy is in the hospital and dying….

The year is 1924 and the prohibition is in full swing. The entire country has been dried up for nearly five years and in desperate need of a stiff drink. And for those with business minds and uneasy morals it’s an easy payday. New York City detective, Bellamy Blake, has been assigned to dive head first into the spinning world of speakeasies, excess, and black market booze. Going undercover is the break he’s been waiting for and taking down this crime family could make him a household name.

His plan was fool proof, and then Clarke Griffin sauntered into that parlor. [ AO3 ]

Magic, Madness, Heaven, Sin

If you’re reading this, it means I’m not back yet. But don’t worry about me, Jean. I’ll be okay. Don’t worry. Don’t come looking for me. And whatever you do, don’t call the coppers.

The year is 1924, and editor-in-chief Marco Bodt has gone missing, last seen at a speakeasy in the heart of Boston. When Jean takes it upon himself to investigate, his search finds him at the door of Mikasa Ackerman—the sweet-talking lounge singer at the speakeasy by night, and cold-hearted boss of the formidable Ackerman Family by day. But help from the Family comes at a cost, and the more time Jean spends with crime and the city, the more secrets he keeps from his family and friends at home, and the more he starts to think that Marco was never exactly who Jean thought he was.

Excerpt:

If you’re reading this, it means I’m not back yet. But don’t worry about me, Jean. I’ll be okay. Don’t worry. Don’t come looking for me. And whatever you do, don’t call the coppers.

That was all Marco wrote, aside from his name and an I love you that Jean knew all too well. Even if, somehow, it felt like it had been written ages ago.

In hindsight Jean should have known, before he found the note on the kitchen table, that Marco had never come home last night. When he first woke up, the bed was empty, felt empty, unused. It was like that sometimes, because Marco was always the first to leave his apartment and the last to turn in, even when Jean took the bus down from Lexington for the weekend. Jean liked to joke, sometimes, that Marco was always thirsty for something. Adventure. Justice. The perfect story. He didn’t know what it was exactly, just that Marco had always wanted that ever since they were kids.

“I shall have to mix you a Hanky Panky when we return to the city,” Art comments, and Heath gives him a soft kick until he relents and laughs. “All right, you’ve got me. The only kind of Hanky Panky worth preparing for you can be done here just as well.”
