    Summary

    "Deano," Donna says brightly. She must still be at the office; the white noise behind her is all hushed voices and keyboard clacks. "I was kind of surprised to hear from you. Word is you're on the wrong side of the law these days."

    "You know me," Dean says, sighing. "I'm always in a reasonable amount of trouble."

    Sembrava un caso semplice per Patrick Stump. Rintracciare Ryan Ross, musicista di Las Vegas in fuga in California, e farlo riunire con i suoi amici preoccupati. Ma, come ogni investigatore privato dovrebbe sapere, non esistono casi semplici. Dalla città degli angeli a Sin City e ritorno, Patrick scopre che le luci accecanti rendono solo le ombre più buie, e risolvere questo caso non sarà una passeggiata al parco.

    Tutto ciò senza Pete Wentz. Cliente. Informatore. Guai avvolti in charm e tatuaggi. Può aiutarlo a risolvere il caso, o lo distrarrà abbastanza da farli uccidere entrambi? Scopritelo in 'The Cat's Miaow'.

    Summary

    - Denerim. The city of tears, the city of thieves, 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?

    Summary

    To entertain acroamatica, who is the best: a slightly tongue-in-cheek attempt at Kylux noir. It's my first time. Be gentle.

    ~
     
    They say you’re the best. That you can find anyone. Is it true?

    I’d taken my feet off the desk, leaned forward to light the cigarette for him. Who’s asking?

    I am, and he’d blown smoke at me, those lips curved and lush. I want you to find my uncle.

    How’d you lose him? It wasn’t my best line, but I was at a disadvantage. Could be he doesn’t want to be found.

    He’d sat down on the edge of my desk, all black and white in the barred street-light through the window blind, and those eyes felt like they were unscrewing the top of my head to have a look inside. It’s complicated, he said. It’s a family thing.

    Summary

    It's a well-known fact that Michael De Santa is a fan of the classic noir; not only watching them, but is influenced by their style; as Trevor teases him once, he even talks like "a gum shoe from a film noir", "out of the side of his mouth". I'm trying to plant Michael into an AU of a 1940s Los Santos... hoping, very much hoping that he will like it. I'm trying my best to entertain him.

    ...Michael "Mickey" De Santa is the owner of two successful nightclubs in Vinewood and a newly built mansion by the Rockford Gardens: He started as a nobody, a five-and-dime grifter from the Midwest, continued as a mobster in Los Santos, and today, he's a respectable (half)legit businessman in Vinewood, married to the daughter of the deceased drug baron Charlie Griffith. When we first meet him, he offers a trivial mission for a Trevor G. Philips... at least, at first, it seemed to be trivial...
