    Summary

    Town to town, train to train, tent to tent.

    By 1932, the dust had begun to blow and the jobs were gone.

    Anonymity was a byproduct of looking for work, which made it both necessary and convenient.

    Stiles had enough secrets of his own to know to look the other way when he saw something that shouldn’t be possible.

    The ghost of a tail giving enough balance to disembark a moving train.

    Near silent Latin whispered on the edge of a tent encampment.

    A flash of burning eyes.

    He had more than enough to worry about without adding the oddities of others, and besides- having unusually sharp teeth certainly didn’t make a man worse than the ones running from the wife and kids they couldn’t feed.

    So Stiles kept his observations to himself. He kept his everything to himself.

    Until he met a man. One with eyes so blue they seemed to glow- and then they did.

    Stiles tried to look away, but for the first time he was stopped.

    “Don’t be like that sweetheart. Aren’t you curious?”

    Summary

    As the last man standing slumped to the floor, he took a deep breath and pondered how the power of a gun and the rush of taking someone else's life made him feel so good. He'd never known he was capable of killing someone before, and he wasn't sure he was capable of ever doing it again.

    or: Tony Stark and his mob family rule New York City. En Sabah Nur and his mob family rule upstate New York. Odin and his mob family rule northern New Jersey. Blackagar Boltagon and his mob family rule western Connecticut. Each has a fragile peace with the others, a "you stay out of my way and I'll stay out of yours" agreement, but what happens when an outside force manipulates them all with a goal of controlling the entire map?
