    Summary

    "What's a nice guy like you doing in a place like this?" I say, voice low.

    Grayson shrugs. "Could ask you the same."

    "Just waiting for a guy. Had a tip he'd turn up here."

    He shifts, edging closer. "Who is it? Might know him. You make a lotta friends out here."

    "And your fair share of enemies too, I'll bet."

    "Doll," he drawls, "if you get through life without pissing a few people off, you ain't done it right."

    Something about him sets me on edge. I slide one hand into the pocket of my coat, feeling the comforting presence of the gun. "So you decided the best way to deal with it is to slum it in holes like this?"

    "Ain't that the American Dream."

    ~.*.~

    A noir AU in which Barbara runs a private investigative firm in the sprawl of 1940's Gotham. When hired by Damian Wayne to dig up his family's past, she finds herself drawn into the city's underworld of organised crime and a spider's web of secrets that should've stayed buried.

    Starring the film noir clichés: a hardboiled detective, femme fatale, ruthless gangster, dodgy lighting and a healthy dose of post-war cynicism.

    Originally called 'Alias', but that was rubbish. Being reposted.

    Sherlock was all fire.
    Anyone who had any sense of self-preservation stayed away from Sherlock Holmes, but some liked to dance around the flames, see how long it took to get burned. That’s how it started, anyway. Just a game, a dare. Before the flames completely engulfed John Watson.

    Summary

    The Vipers vs. The Crocs. The two most well known gangs in South High. The school itself was huge, and had a large population, but the two gangs had the largest rivalry in the area. Despite being a large school with so many people, word travelled fast between the motormouthed teenagers who had nothing better to to than gossip.

         Which brings us to where we are now. The Vipers vs The Crocs. More specifically, Ryan Ross vs Brendon Urie. The two leaders of the rivalry. Surrounding them were a crowd of fellow teenagers who just had to make the scene and say that they witnessed 'the most legendary fight of '56.'

    (A.K.A I recently rewatched American Graffiti and was inspired to make a greaser fic)
