    Summary

    Andrew Minyard didn’t have a reason for surviving the wasteland until Kevin Day came looking for protection. And now Neil Josten is making appearances across the city. This mysterious newcomer, running from his past and towards the people who murdered his mother. He’s spent the last 200 years cryogenically frozen, and this new world—for all its ghouls, and monsters, and hardships—offers the first real freedom he’s ever known. As Neil searches for answers, he latches onto to both the possibility Kevin keeps dangling in front of him and the protection Andrew is offering. But neither of these is going to help him escape his past. And he’s running out of places to hide.
    --

    Kevin was less cryptic. “Why do you have this?”

    “None of your business,” Neil spat.

    “Uh-uh-uh,” Andrew tutted, raising a knife to Neil’s throat. “Try again.”

    “None of your fucking business,” Neil corrected, deciding that if he was going to die in the wasteland, a knife to the throat wasn’t a bad way to go.

    Andrew smiled something manic, and blasted a fist into Neil’s injured side. “You’re a lot funnier when you’re writhing in pain,” he decided.

    Summary

    Once upon a time the darkness reached out with claws and teeth and ripped a boy to shreds, as it was ought to do. But the boy knew of the darkness and its ways, and when the darkness looked away, the boy struck back, returning every blow. But revenge is no healing, and so two became one, less than the sum of their parts, but more than the nothing that awaits them.

    He is unique. He is singular. But he is not alone.

    Summary

    The Foxes’ vice has always been betting on money for nothing much—and Kevin Day is no better when he reluctantly joins them. He’s a terrible gambler, that’s for sure, especially when it comes to his mystery of a baby striker Neil Josten. Then he makes the mistake of betting against Andrew for forfeit instead of money to prove a point, and perhaps that’s where things start to slip up.

    Summary

    Neil Josten survived by listening to his mother's voice, echoing through his mind, her determined stare behind his eyelids every time he blinked.

    Don't stop running. Don't look back. Don't get attached.

    It's been five months since Neil was put into witness protection following his father's death by his uncle's hands, and Neil is slowly relearning how to be a human being.
    (And if accidentally meeting an unknown band at a bar helped him along the way... well, there were some things his mother wouldn't find out.)

    Summary

    AU where Neil has a genetic predisposition on the Hatford's side to a major potentially life-threatening health issue. He has no idea. One day, he collapses at a game and is rushed to the hospital.

    DISCLAIMER: i have been informed that most of the medical information i've so far written in this fic is inaccurate, thanks to the lovely ao3 user dustbottle who helped me out! kudos to them for letting me know. that being said, the amount of inaccuracies is big enough that i feel like i would have to go back and re-write the whole fic to change everything, which i do not want to do. so just be warned that most of the medical information you're reading is definitely wrong, but it's an AU anyway and it's all written for angst purposes, so as long as you're not bothered by the false information, please do continue reading!

    Summary

    On the first night of the Witch Hunt, Nathaniel Wesninski did not die.
    Still— his safety wasn't guaranteed, even nearly a decade later. Magicians were continually being hunted for bounty, and ghosts of fathers and childhood friends were hot on his trail.
    All Nathaniel wished for was a low profile and a peaceful death, but ancient prophecies and a perverse assassin seemed hellbent on making his life more difficult than it already was.

    Summary

    "Neil is always fine. He's just tired."

     OR

    After his 'reunion' with Lola, Neil hasn't been sleeping well, but for the past couple of days, he hasn't slept at all... not a wink. And so when his Foxes ask if he's ok, Neil becomes slightly unhinged in the face of it all, and his manic grin brings up a few memories he'd rather bury...

    Summary

    Natalie Wesninski has been assumed dead. Granted, she practically is--Riko had been sure to strip away very bit of her former identity except the name. It hardly mattered, she was free from her mother, safe from her father, and with Nathaniel dead she didn't have much else to live for. At the very least, she got to play Exy, for the Ravens no less. And she got to live and breathe the only place that mattered: the court. It's all she needed. And then she sees her brother for the first time in five years, telling Riko Moriyama off on National television.
    __

    “I’ll try my best at running. If not, I trust you all with a disposal plan. Especially with that one’s past,” Natalie pointed at Andrew.

    “Kill first plan later,” Andrew said with a wide menacing smile.

    “I like his style,” Natalie decided. It sounded more like a threat than an admission of admiration, and Neil felt tension crackle between the two of them like lightening.
    __

    Multi-chapter fic, alternating viewpoints (Andrew, Natalie, Neil). Tentative Title. Not Beta Read. I suck at summaries.

    Summary

    In Ketterdam’s pleasure district you can find anyone. A wayward son trying to escape his past. A pampered noblewoman who chose a different life. A recovering addict who can’t turn down a bet. A stranded pirate in need of a boat. A deserter who is looking for a place to belong. A Grisha assassin who wants to be a better person. A convict looking to regain her life. A runaway who has become a killer. A survivor who has become something worse.

    These fractured isolationists must cooperate and trust each other to achieve their goals. An impossible heist with a big payout. A revenge scheme years in the making. A high stakes con that could start a war if it goes wrong. They probably deserve better, but if they got what they deserved then they wouldn’t be Foxes.

    A Six of Crows AU where the Foxes are a gang, Neil’s good at disappearing, and Andrew Minyard is the Bastard of the Barrel.

    Summary

    “Stuff came up,” he said, in a voice that let no doubts about how much goodness could be in such stuff. None. “It involves my parents and a courtroom.”

    Nicky didn’t react while saying those words, but Matt flinched enough for both of them. Once more, he didn’t know the details, but he knew, just like all the other Foxes, that Luther and Maria Hemmick figured in the register of campus security as “unwanted: forbidden entry”.

    Summary

    "The red string had always been there.
    While everything else changed, that was the only constant in his life. It was something only he could see, a thick string that nothing could sever firmly attached to his little finger."

    Or: the one where Andrew can see the red string that connects him to his soulmate, but does nothing about it until, one day, he finds himself following it.
