    Summary

    “I shall never forget the weekend Sansa died….” New York, 1947. When young fashion magazine editor Sansa Stark is found murdered in her apartment, Detective Sandor Clegane questions those closest to her in life: her Pygmalion mentor and famous columnist Petyr Baelish and her playboy fiancé Harrold Hardyng. The more testimony he hears about Sansa’s warm, charming character – and the more this reminds him of an episode from his own past – Sandor finds himself falling under the dead woman’s spell…but all is not as it seems. Follows the plot to the classic 1944 film noir Laura.

    Summary

    Our story is about a city, and the people who live in that city. It's about the dark corners, the hiding places nobody knows where the hand of the law doesn't quite reach. It's about broken-down old buildings, about concealed switchblades. It's about what is commonly known as chiaroscuro: the intense, blinding contrast between light and dark. In this city, though, there's a little more oscuro than there is chiaro.

    The name of our city is Riverdale.

    Film Noir AU where Betty hires Jughead to find Polly. Featuring snarky narrator Jughead, both Dark and Light Betty, and more.

    Summary

    The year is 1934, and the Golden Age of Hollywood is in full swing. Paul McCartney is a new actor on the scene, fresh off his debut musical-comedy movie that smashed box office records and charmed the critics. His next role is in a big-budget thriller film co-starring one of Hollywood’s biggest names—a one John Lennon, infamous for his versatile acting ability and leading roles and attitude. It will come down to more than just top billing as the two verbally spar with each other (both in-character and out of it) and harass their fellow actors and crew to the point of distraction. Of course, it’s well-known that a solid way to measure a film’s success is through the chemistry of its leads…which might be less of a problem than anticipated.

    Summary

    "You saved my life today," Allen said, quiet and clear. His eyes snapped away from the window, and he grimaced, remembering the whine of the bullet as it passed by his head. He remembered the shocking solidity of Tyki's body on top of his, hissing, "Get down!" Tyki smelled like wool, soap, bourbon, and smoke. The bullet, meant for Allen, had whizzed instead through the casino window and caused it to shatter. "So, thank you for that. Really."

    Allen wasn't too rattled over being nearly shot. It had happened before, and it would probably happen again. Hazards of the job. He was, however, rattled by the memory of Tyki pinning him roughly against the carpet, eyes fierce with a drive that seemed protective.
