    Summary

    "What's a nice guy like you doing in a place like this?" I say, voice low.

    Grayson shrugs. "Could ask you the same."

    "Just waiting for a guy. Had a tip he'd turn up here."

    He shifts, edging closer. "Who is it? Might know him. You make a lotta friends out here."

    "And your fair share of enemies too, I'll bet."

    "Doll," he drawls, "if you get through life without pissing a few people off, you ain't done it right."

    Something about him sets me on edge. I slide one hand into the pocket of my coat, feeling the comforting presence of the gun. "So you decided the best way to deal with it is to slum it in holes like this?"

    "Ain't that the American Dream."

    -

    Or:
    A noir AU in which Barbara runs a private investigative firm in the 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've stayed buried.

    Starring the film noir clichés: a hardboiled detective, femme fatale, ruthless gangster, dodgy lighting and a healthy dose of post-war cynicism.

    Originally called 'Alias', but that was rubbish. Being reposted.

    Summary

    He's not happy about it. Not one bit. But he doesn't really have a choice.
    "If it helps," she said, "you can always blab and get thrown in prison."
    Don't tempt me.

    Frisk is a detective, and he's recently stumbled on some rather... interesting evidence. And her name, is Chara Dreemurr. You know, the king and queen's daughter. The prince's sibling. The brutal murderer. Although, he was the only one who knew about that last one.

    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.

    Summary

    The NCR is stronger than ever, their win in the Mojave one amongst many triumphs, but the war isn’t over yet. An unknown foe is sabotaging its long-distance water and electricity supply-lines, an enemy so stealthy they are never seen, and no faction is claiming the acts as their own.

    In the capital, NCR City, defence lawyer Lori Treichler has the opposite problem. An ex-soldier insists that he’s guilty of an execution-style murder - then two more people claim to have pulled the same trigger.

    While Lori investigates the background to that killing, a furore erupts as one of the NCR’s most wanted is brought in as a prisoner of war, charged with multiple atrocities. Lori is assigned to his defence, only to find that he too doesn’t want her help – at least, not her legal services.

    As Lori learns more about her strange new clients, she is taught some unpleasant lessons about the facts of death. The Mojave may be conquered, but its ghosts have come a-haunting.

     
    Ghosts of the Mojave is set post-game, with Eureka! complete (NCR Hoover Dam victory), and I Forgot to Remember to Forget incomplete (Boone’s vengeful ending).
