    Summary

    Ryan Bergara would walk along the damp street at night, basked under the light of the moon. Inside his home, he basks in the vibrant red color that beckons strangers to his door. And someone from the shadows watches that light flicker on, every single night; But never dare do they approach it.

     

    (Where Ryan is a prostitute in the 1920's, and someone from his past becomes his secret admirer.)

    Summary

    Melbourne, anni ‘20.
    Sullo sfondo degli affascinanti Roaring Twenties, tra le stravaganze dei nuovi ricchi, i disagi della classe al margine, una band senza nome e decisamente qualche omicidio di troppo, si incrociano le strade di due improbabili investigatori dilettanti, accomunati solo dalla fuga da un paese sull'orlo della follia dittatoriale.

    Tutto ha inizio quando il gestore del caffé letterario "La Scimmia Che Balla" viene pugnalato a pochi passi dall'hotel Windsor, dove si sta svolgendo una serata di beneficenza a cui anche lui avrebbe dovuto partecipare. Per la polizia si tratta di una rapina finita male, se non dell'ennesima aggressione alla comunità italiana, ma c'è chi non è convinto di queste conclusioni affrettate...

    Anche nella semioscurità del cassone, Ermal poteva ben distinguere la luce di una rabbia mai sopita in quegli occhi scavati dalla stanchezza, e che lo stavano squadrando da capo a piedi. Sguardi come quello non lo mettevano in soggezione, in genere: c'era abituato, a quei muti identikit della gente che cercava di capire che razza di esemplare di essere umano avessero davanti...ma non poteva nascondere che, quegli occhi, un pochino lo inquietavano.

    Summary

    1920s jazz club, its atmosphere heavy with cigarette smoke and expensive perfumes, and on the stage a band fronted by the singer with a (deceptively) sweet smile and a voice that wove magic through the air. Sharp and cutting and then soft and deadly - that voice sometimes did strange things to people's minds.

    Summary

    Solbin lifts the hand holding her compass and attempts to throw it overboard. She watches her compass obey the laws of gravity and disappear into the ocean with a small splash. The compass reappears in her hand and she throws it again, this time her compass doesn't even make it the water before it finds itself back in hand her once more.

    Solbin keeps throwing the metal out her grasp, each time making her cry even more. She lifts her arm for last time, burning from overexertion when warm fingers softly clasp around her wrist.

    ”Your compass will always return to you when you feel like you've lost it,” a man calmly says. "It will always be with you as long as you are thinking about it."

    OR

    All aboard the S.S. Tang! The soulmate AU in which everyone is gifted a compass on their eighteenth birthday that points them in the direction of their soulmate.
