    Summary

    A noir-esque AU in which Barbara runs a little private investigative firm in the oppressive sprawl of 1940's Gotham. When hired by Damian Wayne to dig up his family's past, she finds herself drawn into the city's underworld of organised crime and a spider's web of secrets that should have stayed buried.

    Starring all the film noir clichés: a private investigator, a (not particularly femme) femme fatale, a ruthless gangster, dodgy lighting and a healthy dose of post-war cynicism.
    Sort of dark, both thematically and aesthetically, but it's not completely devoid of happiness. There's romance too, albeit in the background. It's more platonic than smushy.

Monsters and Humans never danced to the same beats, but not for lack of trying. Humans just don't like to share. But the wealth is drying up and the Family's starting to matter more than the 'blood and dust' kind, sooner or later everybody's gotta rub elbows with wrong someone to get the right something. 'Suppose the question everybody has to ask themselves is 'How much my Soul really worth?'

    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).
