    Summary

    At the hotel we had separate rooms, but in the middle of the night she came sobbing into mine, and we made it up very gently. You see, she had absolutely nowhere else to go.
    - Lolita, Vladimir Nabokov

    The Assassin Order was founded in 1080 by Hassan-i Sabbah. Most scholars agree it was active from 1080-1275 before being officially eradicated by Mongol Empire. Except the scholars are wrong.

    Summary

    “I shall never forget the weekend Sansa died….” New York, 1947. When young fashion magazine editor Sansa Stark is found murdered in her apartment, Detective Sandor Clegane questions those closest to her in life: her Pygmalion mentor and famous columnist Petyr Baelish and her playboy fiancé Harrold Hardyng. The more testimony he hears about Sansa’s warm, charming character – and the more this reminds him of an episode from his own past – Sandor finds himself falling under the dead woman’s spell…but all is not as it seems. Follows the plot to the classic 1944 film noir Laura.

    Summary

    It's 1940s Hoshido and there's something rotten going on beneath the surface-- between the Shirasagi family holding the supposedly-democratic government by the balls and the secrecy surrounding the family's pharmaceutical holdings, it's hard to tell what's the truth and what isn't. Azura, Hoshido's favorite call-girl, knows a good bit more of the Shirasagi family's secrets than even they want, but she can do very little about it.

    Enter Scarlet Sykes, a reporter for the Chevois Sun and a member of the Chevois Independence Union. She's in Hoshido investigating the disappearance of an envoy the governor of Cheve sent to discuss alliance with Hoshido-- but the envoy hasn't been heard from in a month and Scarlet has set out to find out why. But that turns out to not be the only problem.

    With Azura's help, Scarlet undercovers more and more of the ugly truth, even if her life is on the line. For what else does a journalist do but seek the truth? Even as the truth itself gets uglier and uglier, and outside players and circumstances make finding the truth a danger not only to Scarlet, but to her family, and to the woman she's fallen in love with.

    Summary

    Berlin 1942
    When British born Charles Francis Xavier returns to his stepfathers home from school one day, he discovers that his belongings are being packed, ready to be sent away. His stepfather, Kurt Marko, has received a promotion and his family must move to a new house far, far away, where there is nothing to entertain a nine year old boy. A tall fence stretches as far as the eye can see and cuts him off from the strange people in the distance.

    When Charles follows the fence, he meets a boy, whose life and circumstances are very different from his own, a boy who has seen and experienced things young boys should never have to see or experience, a boy who has lost so much, a boy who changes Charles' life for better or for worse after their meeting results in friendship, a boy in striped pajamas on the other side of the metal fence.

    Or the boy in striped pajamas AU that you NEVER asked for and almost is the boy in striped pajamas but just go with the flow

    Summary

    This story takes place in an AU in the 40s where Pamela is a famous club singer and Bruce is the head of the mafia in Gotham. I was inspired by the song, "Million Dollar Man" by Lana del Rey. I do not own this song or the characters in this story. Rated M for mature themes.
