    Summary

    The streets of London are slick and dark, and not just literally, although they are also so often that. Here there is not only murder, mystery, and mayhem, but magick as well. Here people go through their everyday tragedies and refuse to see the depths behind their troubles. Here two (and a half) detectives search for the truth.

    In the dusk of autumn, as November winds are slicing down alleys, the good people of London are going missing by the dozens. It's up to Kravitz and Taako and, honestly, mostly Angus to solve the case, and maybe a couple other mysteries along the way.

    Summary

    After the big attack against Seijoh, almost everyone in the gang was dead, leaving only Oikawa behind.

    Luckily for him, he's offered a place to stay(even if it was out of guilt), but the people who fought in the invasion still had it badly. Nekoma, in particular, lost one of their best members. Their sniper, Kenma, was left horribly crippled.

    At a loss for what to do, Kuroo makes the decision to get help from other gangs so that he could protect his own. But it's when he's given a seemingly broken radio that he learns way more about Karasuno's systems. And it's Tsukishima who shows him that they've got the worst ones possible.

    Summary

    (Prohibition/Roaring 20s Era Mob AU)

    Jeremy Heere, the only son of a notorious mob boss, doesn't care for violence. He absolutely doesn't want to get involved in the family business, and avoids it at all costs, but familial pressure may force him to take that spot, anyway. He wants to pass off his prospective position of "Underboss" (one he is good at but reluctant to take) to his father's ward, Keanu "Squip" Heere, but he refuses to take it.
    Michael Mell, son of an immigrant family, joined the Dillinger family at 15 and works as a Capo and as a bodyguard to their son, Jake. He doesn't exactly like what he does, but he continues his work to support his parents and younger brother. He's fostered an unwilling rivalry with the Heere family's top member, "The Squip", after being the only one to ever successfully escape him. Fearing for his safety, he's on edge constantly.
    These two both have their own Mob related stresses, but meet under circumstances that lead to a secret relationship between them. If they're found out, it could result in their separation, or even their deaths. On top of that, the Squip is becoming suspicious. Can they survive together,or will this become a Romeo and Juliet Tragedy?

    Summary

    Shanghai [verb]: Term describing a type of kidnapping referenced in 19th and 20th century for sea work. However, women weren't used for such sea work, but rather... Sexual desires.

     If you can’t fly, then run; Today we will survive; Aim your gun! Ready! Fire! - BTS, NOT TODAY

    In the very early turn of the 1920s, there were two rival gangs. BTS was framed for being in the Shanghai business while their rival gang went scot-free despite them being the ones really in the business. During the time that BTS was framed, their rival gang kidnapped you- the prettiest girl in Portland Oregon, and they're selling you off to 3 notorious Pimps for the Asian Market. A mistake that the rival gang has miscalculated, for they knew you were BTS'- and thinking BTS wouldn't fight to get you back. However, they underestimated BTS' ability to fight for what is theirs, and the rival gang is going to find out the hard way for stealing you.

Or a young detective and a police photographer, who find the best and worst of humanity where they least expect and desperately hope to catch a serial killer who dresses his victims in white.

    Summary

    Rather salacious sequel to Playing the Hand You’re Dealt. A relationship with Redd may not be the high-stakes adventure Greyson is used to, nor actively seeks, but perhaps it isn’t completely devoid of value.
