Queen of New York » by IrishBelle Sort of an alternate version of Newsies. It's from Crutchie's perspective, only this time, Crutchie is a newsgirl. She goes through the strike, the Refuge, all the events of the musical. But because she is a girl, events are a bit different. The message is also a bit more disability-inclusive, as it's written by a disabled author.

1 Bookish Afternoon by Nycnewsgirl For him reading is pointless. He'd much rather be hitting homeruns and doing kickflips. Which is odd considering he found himself a girl who seems to always have her nose stuck in a book. But, what's stranger is that he finds himself getting interested in the activity just to see the sweet smile he loves so much. Yup, there's no doubt he's gone soft for her (one shot)(modern AU)
