    Summary

    SI Garrus Vakarian is a jaded cop yearning for adventure to pull him out of his dreary day to day. Until the day, he and his partner, SI Nihlus Kryik are called to a massacre at a posh, presidium hotel. The adventure becomes altogether too real as Garrus is pulled into the world of Jane Shepard, an earthborn heiress with too many secrets ... some of which might just get him killed.

    Some mention of past abuse, but nothing graphic or taking place in current time. Any spots where mention is made will be clearly marked and warnings posted. Some graphic violence ... it's detective noir, after all. :D And soooo much Garrus being all super cool and snarky. Definitely need to warn for that. :D

    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

    Detective Anna DeWitt takes cases with a simple expectation: the bad guy is dealt with, the investigator gets paid. The murder of Brigid Tenenbaum, one of the top scientists in the city of Ascension, seems to be another one of these cases. But as DeWitt weaves her way further and further into the mystery, she uncovers a larger conspiracy involving strange experiments, an abandoned colony on the Moon, and a mysterious substance code-named "ADAM."

    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

    There was a tingle of dread sneaking up my spine for some unknown reason and the demon was suddenly surging forward and I knew if it weren't for the sunglasses, my eyes would be black. The smell of brimstone and sulphur filled my nostrils as my sense of smell heightened. My eyes scanned the room, easily distinguishing between Normal and Abnormal through my demon eyes.

    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).

    Summary

    Jack Savage made a mistake. The kind of mistake that someone in his line of work can't afford to make, not ever, unless they want to end up face-down in a gutter. Down in the Marches, down in the places where the castoffs of Zootopia's society make their home, knowing when to keep your nose out of trouble is everything.

    It's too bad he's made a career out of doing the exact opposite.

    Now he's in over his head, and going deeper by the second. And when ZPD's finest catch on to the same trail, one slip-up could be enough to buy Jack Savage, Nick Wilde, and Judy Hopps a one-way ticket to the bone orchard.
