    Summary

    The underbelly of Lothering was a mix of stale and sickly. A quiet rot that infected the lungs, lined them with tar, and steeped every breath with the understanding: this is it, this is all there is.

    Summary

    A quiet P.I. office finally meets the case its been waiting for, when a headstrong young woman barges in demanding to partner up with the city's best investigator. Obviously, he turns her down. This case could get dangerous for this pretty little thing and, besides, the Chat works alone.

    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 the events of More Than Smoke. I'm considering moving these to a separate work to avoid confusion, but we'll see. I may also just be procrastinating other projects I should be working on.

    This ship has caused me way too much grief. (Which I, in turn, have shared with you). Now collected and listed in rough chronological order.
    All of the before 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).

    Summary

    Set in a dark alternative universe, with a noir "contorno", a story which crosses the limits of love and morality, and falls in the depth of the heart's mistery.

    Summary

    The phone starts ringing at the exact moment when Captain Treville, of the Préfecture de police de Paris, crosses the threshold to his apartment. It hasn’t stopped by the time it takes him to hang his coat, take off his gloves and hat, and slowly walk across the living room to pick up the receiver.

    “No,” he says, flatly, as he places the handset against his ear.

    [aka, the Trevilieu noir AU.]

Si è lasciato andare, dicono. Non ha più voglia di combattere, affermano altri. La verità è che Kotetsu sta perdendo le speranze.

    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.
