    Summary

    "Hux had read those pulp novels with the strong jawed detective on the cover and a starry eyed dame draped over him. He would be lying if he said that it hadn't influenced his career path towards being a PI. He just never imagined that Kylo Ren would be playing the role of the femme fatale.

    But then, which other old flame of his would have the audacity to trample into his office with a dangerous case and an alluring promise of trouble?"

    Summary

    Decades ago Frank Miller turned the comics world around, rejuvenating tired heroes like Daredevil and Batman with the gritty, stylistic violence he later brought to his own gritty, fictional dystopia “Sin City.” But few people know that Frank Miller was once asked to apply his magic to another once-popular institution.

    Summary

    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

    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 in 1947, 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...

    Summary

    There aren't many opportunities for Nobodies. AnSym churns them out, and they often get scrapped a few years later. You've got to take what you can get--that's Axel's philosophy, and it's served him well in the bounty hunting business. Sure, he's gotta kill runaway Nobodies for blood money, but you can't make an omelet without murdering a few androids...or however that old cliche goes. Robots don't eat eggs, you know.

    Still, Axel's gonna quit after this one. Really, this time.

    Promise. (Written with NagaSleeps for the 2016 Worlds Connected Fanzine)

    Summary

    Agent Barry Allen is at the end of his rope, with no leads on his newest case. But 'forfeit' isn't in his dictionary, and he'll do anything to catch his man.

    Unfortunately, this time, 'anything' means paying a visit to his least favorite kind of people--private investigators. Barry really hates PIs. But this one's kinda cute, and quite the flirt.

    Summary

    Please assume these are all NSFW. Of the lot, I think only four are SFW.

    A master list of fluff and mostly smut featuring Garrett Hawke and Essa Trevelyan, before More Than Smoke. This sunken ship has caused me way too much grief. (Which I, in turn, have shared with you). Now collected and listed in rough chronological order. I would like to point out that half of these were prompts and thus this whole mess is only half my fault. ;)

    All of these (except for Say Something) occur a year or more prior to the events of Smoke. Say Something occurs between chapters four and five of Act IV.

    There is also an alternate ending to Smoke (because I am weak) and post-alternate ending prompt fills (because Tumblr is apparently also weak).
