    Summary

    - Denerim. The city of tears, the city of thieves, of sex, of death, of love, of despair. The city of magic. The city where there were more sirens than birdcalls, more TEMPLAR officers than civilians, more apostates than registered mages. Where dreams of success came to die, and realities of dark fantasies and desires came alive. -

    Cullen Rutherford is a disgraced ex-TEMPLAR, now a Private Detective in one of the most notorious cities in all of Thedas. Ready to give up his ties to his former life and forget all the atrocities he once performed in the name of justice, all his plans are shattered by the arrival of an old friend with a new mission for him. But can he solve this mystery before someone else uses it to tear down the TEMPLAR order, and throw Denerim into chaos?

    (Pretty much contains all the main characters from the Dragon Age universe)

    Summary

    Some of the servers dropped their menus and trays, replacing them with pistols and shotguns. New cars, unmarked, inconspicuous, and missing license plates rolled up to the curb. Their engines were left running as their occupants stepped out, took cover behind the doors, and rested their guns on the edges. In the nearby canal, boats from the bay were starting to make their way to the restaurant's dock.

    “Penn, you have your piece with you, right?”

    “Never go anywhere with you without it. You?”

    “Why do you think I never let you reach up my left thigh? Is it loaded?”

    “Sorry, no, kinda against gun safety from basic.”

    “Great.”

    “Duck behind the planters, you cover me while I reload?”

    “Sounds like a plan.”

    The bullets started flying as Sashi and Penn dove for cover.

    Summary

    "Shut up, you're perfect," Lydia said, and pressed her lips to the space between Cora's breasts. "I won't allow anyone to insult my mate like that."

     

    Cora pulled her close, kissing her hair so Lydia wouldn't see her expression. Lydia threw the word around like she didn't know what it meant sometimes. Mates got married and had children. They didn't meet in secret in a dirty speakeasy, to fuck before someone noticed they were gone. Some rich boy would marry Lydia eventually and she'd disappear from Cora's life. She didn't mind it, so long as she didn't think about it. She was a female alpha, a mistake of genetics. Alpha girls didn’t have mates, certainly not Lydia Martin, with half of Beacon Hills as a dowry. As long as she didn't think of it, she could enjoy what she had, Lydia's sweet scent mixing with hers, that beautiful voice begging for her touch.

    Summary

    "Bohemianism is the practice of an unconventional lifestyle, often in the company of like-minded people, with few permanent ties, involving musical, artistic, or literary pursuits. In this context, Bohemians may be wanderers, adventurers, or vagabonds."

    The clones are all living in Greenwich Village during the roaring 20s. Everybody's queer and a criminal (even the cop).

    Summary

    “You think someone's trying to send you a message?” Penn asked, slowly putting her arm around Sashi's shoulders.

    Sashi rolled her eyes, then snuggled up closer to him. “I know so. Dead criminals, disposed off in a body of water, chum tied to their bodies. They're copying my MO except the part where I make sure the cops don't find them.”

    “This pissing you off, I take it?”

    “No, actually, I'm only angry because some douchesnozzle decided to nick my milk from my doorstep this morning.”

    Penn blinked.

    “Of course this fucking pisses me off! And I already found the douchesnozzle this morning and made them promise never to do it ever again.”

    Summary

    “Get the hell out of here, copper.”

    Officer Penn Zero tried to look incredulous. “Copper? Who, me?”

    The small woman in the bright red-and-black dress glared at him. “Yes, you, the moron with the dumb red hair who thought he could sneak in just like that.”

    All around them, the bar patrons watched the debacle with amusement, smoking their cigars, drinking their liquour, and peering up from their card tables.

    Penn chuckled. “Well, it can't be me! The bouncer let me in, didn't they?”

    The woman nodded. “Yes, that's because they told me there was a copper stupid enough to think he even had a snowball's chance in hell of getting in here, and I said, 'I have to see this douchesnozzle for myself, bring him in.'”

    Penn blinked, and stared. “You're...”

    “Sashi 'The Shark' Kobayashi, owner of the Chum Bucket.” She growled. “Your name, copper? Because I want to know which family to send the package to.”
