    Summary

    Bilbo was the epitome of cool. His golden-blonde hair was always combed to perfection and slicked back in the latest style. It seemed he had a permanent smirk glued to his face, as though he knew every dirty little secret. Thorin, on the other hand, was the epitome of square. Everything from his polished penny-loafers, to his ironed button-up and lame glasses.

    So when Bilbo greeted him with a lazy, “Hey, there,” his lips curving into a dangerous smile, Thorin was quite befuddled – and more than a little nervous.

    Summary

    Once upon a time, John was normal, likely. Maybe it was back when he was nothing but an ankle-biter, but there had to have been a time. Whether or not there was, it isn’t now.

    No, John screwed that up real good when he lived in the city.

    It was Friday night.
    A darkened alleyway.
    The gun sticking to the palm of his hand.

    Now, John’s been hopping Levittowns with his family for three years, trying to avoid the police force, and he’s been doing pretty well at laying low -- though it means he doesn’t gain much popularity, and with Dad and Sis marinating in booze every night, the welts on John’s back make getting any girls a nigh impossibility.

    When John meets Sherlock Holmes, a greaser who just won’t leave John alone, and more importantly, a young detective directly connected to the police John’s been bending over backward to avoid, things start taking a definite turn -- but the question is, is it for better, or for worse?

    One thing's for sure: it isn't going to be easy, this... friendship? Partnership? with the boy that could either be John's saving grace, or could just be the end of everything he knows.

    Summary

    It’s 1955 and Werewolf greaser Kali and that heart of a warden Darach Jennifer are celebrating their first Halloween together.

    She hated Halloween; it wasn’t as if the night made holding the wolf back harder, it was the mockery of her kind that the night brought that Kali couldn’t stand. All those people running around in werewolf costumes; it made her blood boil, claws aching to tear flesh from bone.

    As for Jennifer she loved it, or at least she did now. Back before Jennifer had become Jennifer's handle she hadn’t cared either way but now, now there was power to be had for a Darach. Kali supposes it’s a suitable punishment, one made from her own two hands. It certainly served as a reminder to what she had done and almost lost, but the less she lingers on that the better. Besides they’re past that now.
