    Summary

    The only people who ever use the L&L Diner these days are down-and-outs and mob members, so Angie Martinelli sees her fair share of criminals. But there’s none quite like Peggy Carter and her little group of extraordinary con artists.

    And Angie’s a girl with grand designs, she doesn’t want to be a waitress all her life – if Carter and her boys ever asked Angie in, she’d probably say ‘yes’ in a heartbeat.

    (or, the one where they’re all world-class grifters)

    Summary

    When Tom is cast as Loki in Thor, the woman he was seeing at the time shatters his heart. After that, Tom has become, and still is, a heartbreaker. He has a new lady on his arm every week. It’s his thing—getting under their skin, taking their hearts before they even realize it, and assassinating them. And like hell does he love it. It’s 2015, and he’s still at it. It helps him forget—helps him numb the pain—helps block out the fear of falling again. The media has no idea, and he’s still portrayed as being a kind, British gentleman. And whom does he lay his eyes on next? Taylor Swift at the Met Gala. But this time, he plans his attack differently—she isn’t going to last a week like all the others. He has plans for her—a long con. She’s a challenge and like hell does he want to break her little heart. Because Taylor is notorious for being known in the media as a “whore”, he wants to see if that image that’s been cast upon her is true or not. He wants to get under her skin, take her heart, and shatter it once she has irrevocably fallen in love with him. Tom Hiddleston has a long con planned to break America’s Sweetheart, Taylor Swift. Just how will it end up? Tom is about to encounter a side of Taylor he never anticipated.

    Summary

    1920s, New York. Height of fashion, culture, society, and crime. Alexander Pierce is the most infamous mob boss in the state, and all the states surrounding it. Bucky Barnes is his partner, pet, 'lover' (although that's a term best used loosely when describing their relationship). The arrangement works out for them both - Pierce gets a plaything, and Bucky gets money and luxury without having to get his own hands dirty.

    But Bucky's always had ambitions of his own, he's just never had the means to realise them. Cue Steve, an artist whose immigrant parents have recently died and left him with no way to get by on his own. Steve doesn't look like much at first, but then Bucky sees what he can do with a brush and some paints, and the idea for a new criminal empire starts to build that could rival even Pierce's.

    Summary

    "This isn’t a ghost story.
    Okay, fuck, maybe it is, but it wasn’t meant to be..."

    After a chance encounter with the paranormal when he was 10 years old, Eren Jaeger was thrown into a world of fear and horror- if he’d ever believed in the stuff. He instead realised, in spite of his experience being unexplainable, that he had a definite gift for the con. Joining forces with his childhood friend, one Armin Arlert, Eren builds up a reputation as a paranormal investigator of the highest order; but every single one of his ‘investigations’ are faked. The money is easy, people are gullible and Eren gets off on the thrill.

    But then they find an ACTUAL ghost.

    A ghost that writes notes to anyone who'll listen warning them to 'Get out while you can'.

    That is when Eren and Armin realise, with the help of a disenchanted Empath, that ghosts can be haunted too.

    And all of the bullshit becomes very, very real.

    Summary

    First in a new series titled “Perspectives: a Real Life Series” that is a crossover between Buffy the Vampire Slayer and real life, this one is kind of a prequel to the series, and deals with the matter of the occult as contacting the mob (organized crime) for favors- do that and you're their slave for life- well, in regards to the occult, doing that makes you their slave for eternity,,, a far longer time, and a far more brutal master will control your life!

    Albeit Victoria Maclay doesn't intend to invoke the mafia of eternity for this; she's sort of tricked. The moral still stands: spells are a Profoundly Foolish decision to do, and WILL Always backfire upon the doer!

    Summary

    Aristan slumped a little in the stocks. Just a little, to show Kellen that he'd won, and that Aristan had finally learned his lesson. "I hadn't known," he said. "I promise, Kelly. Now that you've dropped the charges on this one, I've learned my lesson. No more games like that one. But it was so much money!"

    "No more games," Kellen agreed. "And I haven't dropped the charges."
