    Summary

    Liam’s voice, soft but clear. “We all seen Styles' handiwork, pal. We know it ain’t pretty. That’s why we’re doin’ this.” Aria watched Liam, suddenly curious about each of their reasons for targeting Styles. She’d just assumed Louis was in it for the status of hustling the biggest hustler in the city, but Liam’s voice gave her pause. Liam and Louis hadn’t planned this for the thrill of it. This was vengeance.
    Louis nodded assertively at Liam’s declaration. “Me n’ Liam are good enough to not be caught yet. Aria pulled you one in broad daylight. And we got you, with intel from the right side of the law. We can do this, but only if it’s together.”
    Aria felt a swell of pride at Louis’ compliment that mildly displaced the fear. She turned to look at Niall, who stared helplessly around at the three of them for several long moments before hanging his head and crossing himself. “May God have mercy on our souls.”

    Or, Harry "Iron" Styles is the biggest mob boss in Chicago and Louis is the small-town con artist with a ragtag team and a thirst for revenge. Their plan? Seduce, deceive, and set up the perfect sting.

    Summary

    Viktor was a perennial surprise, a Pandora’s jar that sheltered the thoughts of my future from foreboding. Viktor represented everything which we call love, gliding across the rink of Madison Square Garden in a dance of frost and carved figures. What Viktor held was, to me, an extraordinary gift for hope; a romantic readiness such as I have never found in any other person, and which it is not likely I shall ever find again.

    Summary

    "Through the haze of cigarette smoke, Sportacus made his way back to his table, another tumbler of whiskey, neat, in his hand.....He didn't come to these kinds of places often, but tonight he had felt that restless stirring in his bones that made him feel lonely and heartsick, and he had headed to the speakeasy in hopes of easing the feeling a bit."

    Summary

    The Great War woke a devil in Matt Murdock. This is why he bare knuckle boxes. This is also why he cannot love Claire Temple. But when she runs afoul of some gangsters, Matt must involve himself or risk losing her entirely. Dancing around his feelings was far easier when death, his friends' well-placed meddling, and a corruption scandal weren't involved.

    Summary

    **Felicity Smoak cursed the gravel beneath her feet as she slogged up the road to the Queen estate, a place she never wanted to come back to. The only good thing about returning to the palatial mansion was that it gave her a break from Billy. The foolish wide-eyed boy wanted desperately to marry her, but at twenty-one Felicity wasn't ready for commitment. She hadn't tasted the world yet. The Queen estate wasn't exactly what she had in mind when she told her friends she planned to explore it before putting down roots, but it was a piece of her past that she had never faced. She returned to Queen that day with a heavy heart, an empty stomach and a pound of fear in her chest.**

    Summary

Just then he is met with a pair of striking blue eyes as he sees the woman who passed him earlier. The look is held only for a second before each looks away and suddenly he feels very distracted and not at all in the usual way."

    Summary

    After Credence's execution by the Aurors under Seraphina Picquery's orders in NYC's City Hall Subway Station, Newt was the only eyewitness to a single sliver of Credence's Obscurus slithering out of the wreckage after Grindelwald's arrest at dawn on December 8th.

    Thanks to Newt's released Thunderbird, Frank who conjured up a rainstorm and diluted the Swooping Evil venom, the rampage of Credence's Obscurus has been wiped from the No - Maj's memories. Newt has said a heartfelt goodbye to Tina, promising to return with her personal copy of his future published book, Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them.

    Newt departs New York for England after midday on December 8th and ponders the thought of Credence's true fate on the four day voyage home. On the dark stormy winter evening of December 8th, Albus Dumbledore is travelling with a mysterious and magical companion on an ocean liner as they await their arrival into New York City.

    Tired after the long voyage, Albus intends to search for a hotel to stay in for the night. Having heard rumours of Grindelwald's presence in New York in pursuit of an Obscurial, the wise wizard intends to reveal his knowledge to MACUSA in the days ahead as they will need it.
