    Summary

    Deathwish 5000. A Frerard, multi music fandom fanfiction set in a futuristic cyberpunk city after the fall of the Fabulous Killjoys and Helium Wars leaves the earth uninhabitable. Levitating 'zones' of cities exist, each with 5 levels. The higher your level, the more money you have.

    And then, there's Frank. Frank has a sort of unhealthy obsession with bot fighting. Ever since his dad took him to see DeathWish 3000 on the Third Level, he's been trying to craft the perfect bot for The Stadium Arcadium Arena. And part of him thinks that maybe he can make it all the way to the top, to the single most dangerous arena in the country, the DeathWish 5000 all the way up on Level Five.

    He's also hoping that if he gets into the Big Leagues, maybe he'll be able to meet his favorite fighter of all time, the young, masked prodigy Party Poison, who has seemingly dropped off the face of the planet since the destruction of the Professional Griefers Arena 8 years ago.

    What if Tony Stark did not spend three months in captivity in Afghanistan, but in Gotham City?
    What if Bruce Wayne was just as cunning, dedicated and unyielding, but without a sense of morality?

    Summary

    In the aftermath of the Circle crisis, Mei Surana tries to find her path in Denerim and Max Trevelyan works to rebuild the Circle as its new Knight-Captain. Meanwhile, Juliet Hawke navigates a delicate relationship with Fenris while her best friend Naia Tabris grapples with a demanding workload--and her attraction to a certain ex-assassin.

    All of that would be plenty to cope with on its own. But as pressure from Councilwoman Meredith Stannard puts the future of Denerim's mages in question, the four of them will be drawn into a confrontation with a deadly enemy.

    An urban fantasy AU and sequel to "Denerim Confidential." Updates Tuesdays.

    Summary

    "People are all oranges, really. On the outside, they’re just a big kinda waxy blob of mono-colour. Then when you peel off their skin (…not, y’know, literally) they are filled with these beautiful complexities you never expected. Like oranges, they have all the segments and pips and that weird white stuff that you need to peel off before you eat it ‘cause it’s kinda gross… Yeah, I’m not great with metaphors but you get what I mean, right? People; they’re more interesting than they seem sometimes. And when knowing how to peel people is what you do for a living... you know a lot about oranges…

    Eh, just ignore that. Sorry. Metaphors. Not my thing."

    Emma Swan, local Private Investigator of SWAN & JONES, is hired by writer and activist Regina Mills to find out just why her ten year old son keeps going AWOL. Written in a modern day feminist Raymond Chandler style, except in first person.

    Summary

    Kudo's lateness and an accident during a particularly long and beautiful sunset triggers a string of coincidences whose far-reaching consequences Shiho can't foresee. Talking to a stranger who shares the same bad luck in love, she takes a walk down memory lane and recalls the story Gin told her when she was a child: the legend of the ghost at twilight...
    A Shiho-centric story about the downfall of the Organization and the aftermath (pairings: Sherry/Gin, Conan/Ai, Shiho/Shinichi, Shiho/Kaito, Shiho/"stranger").
    A/N: I've edited the story. SN/Ritz/aritzen has also agreed to beta the story for me after completion. :) It will take me a while to upload the last chapters since I have to study for my final exams these days.
