    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

    "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

How can he take crime off the streets when it was ripe and swollen inside his own department? It's enough to drive a man to drink. But the End of the Line bar houses more than just a lot of alcohol. Something's not right about the slightly sad singer Lee Hongbin or the mysterious bartender Jung Taekwoon. Just how much was Wonsik supposed to blind himself before he broke inside? And where is the line between what's just and what's right?
