    Summary

    After Arya's life is shattered by a string of tragedies in her early twenties she moves in with her sister. There's some kind of sickness moving south from the wall which has come, at last to Winterfell just as a charming new neighbor with pale dead eyes moves in next door.

    This story is very influenced by 80s horror, especially The Lost Boys & Fright Night.

    Look, its pretty goddamn ridiculous. I just hope it's fun to read.

    Summary

    She caught the eye of a guy in the back corner completely by accident; she’d seen him before, always hovering at the edge of the crowd and wearing that same ugly plaid jacket. He smiled at her and then just as quickly stopped, the expression passing over his face like a cloud through the sky.

    Someone was going to throw a bottle. She could feel it.

    Summary

    It begins at an award show. Dean Winchester is a well-known actor, standing before a crowd with Charlie at his side. The world looks at him and sees someone that has everything. The fame, the fortune, the life. They don't see the loss or what he refuses to tell. Then Charlie, his manager, sets up an interview with a journalist that seems to know how to get at the truth. It seems to take no time before Dean is sharing more than he intended, and Benny is ready to capture it all on camera. Because some stories just must be told.
