Come With Me Intro

We start out with a new fanfic tonight. This one is one of my three top historical Manny fanfics. A good part of that is it’s a different idea and another big part is that it’s a time period that works really well. It was in Prohibition was turning petty criminals into mobsters by requiring distribution networks and connections. There was a rejection of the crusade and self-sacrifice mentality after World War I and in its place was a sense of loosening of morals and that everything went. There were things pulling people multiple directions and I think makes sense in terms of the Manny story and adds layers.

The author also put in at least some research or already knew about the 1920s. There are lots of deeper details than most of these pieces. I enjoyed it so much I pulled up lots of extras for it.

“Come With Me” – A 1920s fanfic – I’d have paid money if they had filmed this one. Danny would look gorgeous in a 1920s suit, of course Danny looks great in anything, but….
Michelle has just come back from Europe when thoroughly modern Drew convinces her to go to a speakeasy. It’s an epic night and Michelle meets Nino, Ray, and Danny. It’s an exciting time when Carmen and Bernard are fighting to get control of bootlegging industry in Springfield. When Michelle rejects Nino, he calls Frank Cooper and David Grant who “raid the joint.” Danny and Ray get the girls out safely, but Drew drags Michelle away figuring they are involved with the mob since Nino is. The next day after visiting with a few “clients,” Danny and Ray pick up Pilar who is just returning to town from Europe from the train station and then search for the girls. The girls are happier to be found than they care to admit.
Michelle compared Drew to these two actresses during this story. Here are photos so you can properly picture her.

OK, I went a little overboard with extras on this one, but I really loved the idea and the story.
