    Summary

    Michael "Mickey" De Santa is the owner of two successful nightclubs in Vinewood and a newly built mansion by the Rockford Gardens. He started in the 1930s as a nobody, a five-and-dime grifter from the Midwest, proceeded later 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...

    - This fic is an "hommage" to Michael Townley's love for the genre of the classic film noir. I wrote it hoping he would love it to play a leading part in a story like this. Although this fic is set into a 1940s AU, some elements of his life and fate can be familiar from the canon universe; it's karma, I think.
    Final notes - about the characters, the locations and the noir endings - are at the end of the last chapter.

    Summary

    Remus Lupin is a down-at-heel private eye in a gritty city that's short on honour and tall on crime.
    What Severus Snape wants is anyone's guess.

    Not a complete work. A small collection of pictures and their accompanying "extracts" from an imaginary novel. (Imaginary in that I'll never write the whole thing - anyone wants to flesh it out fully be my guest!)

    Summary

    It's NYC in 1927. Angelus is a private-eye who's trying to make up for his grisly past. It's not the most reliable profession for keeping the bills paid and the icebox stocked with blood, and he's beginning to lose track of how many times he's been dumped in the Hudson with cinder blocks strapped to his feet, but someone has to do it.

    Summary

    "In walked a man, white-haired, in a suit that probably cost more than Vex’s last three paychecks. Given how it clung to his slender frame, she’d say it was worth the money, and she’d be lying if she said it didn’t make her sit up straighter. 'Can I help you?'

    The man looked at her and blinked. Hair aside, he was young, youthful softness in his face despite the stubble on his jaw and dark circles under his eyes. 'I’m sorry, I’m looking for Detective Byroden?'

    Vex crossed her arms. 'You’ve found her.'"

    A handsome man with a mysterious past meets a hardboiled detective in need of a client. Sparks fly. So do bullets.

    Summary

    Poe wades out into the sea of bodies that work in Galactic City like the flow of a tide; a rushing rapid of intelligent life that creates eddies and whorls on the ground level, that soars in levels above in tightly controlled patterns of traffic. At this hour, it's so thick he can't see the sky in the small spaces where he might expect it.

    Galactic City never gets cold, not down here on the street. There's too much alive, too much churning activity. It's only in the high reaches of the towers and the dark underground where the chill sets in. Poe carries his coat on his shoulders, knowing he's going miles up; to the top of the Hutt-owned towers where the air is so thin you can only breath it inside the glass boxes.

     

    A Stormpilot Noir-AU that refused to remain a one-shot. Oops.

    Summary

    “How many times can you dig another man's grave before someone digs yours, Reyes?”

    Gabriel stops cold. He turns slowly, and looks at Jesse, who is looking right back at him. He’s still sitting halfway in the grave with his face lit by the glow of the flashlight. Gabriel can’t read his expression.

    “Is that a threat, boy?”

    Jesse looks away first, then begins to stand. He walks to the hearse and only stops after he’s wrestled the back open.

    “It’s a concern, Captain. I’d hate to see a man die twice.”
