    Summary

    1930's Hollywood AU. Stuntman- -turned actor Greg Lestrade is poised on the edge of great things. His good looks and exquisite physique have led to starring roles in many a B-picture and have ensured excellent returns for both his studio and John Watson, his agent. With the impending release of his new romantic comedy Love Among The Ashes Greg looks set to join the A-list.

    When the film tanks, Greg feels nothing but despair. He knows only too well what it means to go hungry but John Watson isn't giving up on him. He thinks Greg would be perfect for the lead role in a new series of detective movies that will be produced and directed by one of the steadiest pairs of hands in Hollywood, Mike Stamford.but realises they'll need help.

    What they need is Mycroft Holmes, Hollywood's best kept secret. No one outside the biz has heard of him. He is ruthless, pedantic and seriously particular about who he works with. John predicts fireworks when the uptight Brit meets the force of nature that is his best client.

    He might also be Greg Lestrade's last hope...

    Summary

    Jiwoo’s words echoed in her mind as the train took Chaewon deep into the Yeongnam countryside. “My little butterfly,” she had said. “Daughter of a legendary thief. If anyone can pull it off, it will be you.”

    Chaewon stared out at the rain-soaked greenery as it sped by, the miles and miles of fields in between her and the lonely, forlorn Lady Olivia. She was a great beauty, apparently, and only needed the convincing of a willing handmaiden for the plan to work. Chaewon had always loved beautiful and shiny things, had always had a special knack for picking the prettiest trinket out of a window or off a woman’s wrist. Lady Olivia, she thought, with her thirty thousand yen inheritance and her moon-pale face, might be Chaewon’s most beautiful steal yet.

    Summary

    To the outside observer, Will Graham and Hannibal Lecter seem to have nothing in common: one is a penniless migrant accused of murder, the other a wealthy doctor and a pillar of his community.

    In truth, Will Graham and Hannibal Lecter are just alike. They are killers who long to show their true face, but are held back by the same shared uncertainty: have they fallen in love with a mask, or the man hiding behind it?

    Summary

    She walked in. Tall, broad, aristocratic in bearing and nose. The angles of her face were so sharp they almost refracted light. No weapon aside from the devastating dismissiveness she could lay on you without blinking. I knew her. You’d think that would make me relax but—I knew her. The best thing about this city was that I knew no one and here she was, walking into my office like a ghost out of the grave of my former life.

    In 1930s Mercy of Kalr, Detective Breq takes on a case from a shadow from her past, the recently impoverished heiress Seivarden Vendaai.

    Summary

    Lady Asami didn't worry much about the world around her. She'd lived in the Fire Nation all her life, and she knew that while the radical Spirit and Nationalist Parties were always trying to cause trouble nothing bad could really happen in the place she called home.

    At least, that was what she'd always believed. But when she meets the gorgeous alpha daughter of the Watertribe ambassador, she begins to see that the world isn't as safe as she always thought. She eventually realizes that freedom is not granted.

    The beginning maybe looks futile but we needed to depict Republic of Weimar. And we needed to depict the change that happened so quickly in a republic that left a lot of freedom to their citizens.

    Summary

    “Please stay close to me,” Logan says, and he really means please be safe, please don’t get hanged, please don’t die because of me. He means please, let it be possible for me to linger close without putting you in danger.

    “I’ve got you,” Delilah says. She pulls him closer, leaning over him; he feels something tickley brush his cheek and opens his eyes. Her hair is coming out of its pins. She cradles his face in her hands as if he’s something precious, and Logan’s breath catches like silk on a rusty nail as he ponders the implications of that.

    (Logan/Deceit interlaced with Logicality in flashbacks. No death, che/ating, or abuse in the main ships. This story is about growing up bi in small-town Georgia, accidentally stumbling into a witch's house on a hot summer's day, and what it means to be a good man. It's porn that's been overtaken by plot, ft. teacher!Logan, farmer!Patton, and witch!Deceit.)

    Summary

    Prohibition Era, Ebott City: A place where humans and monsters have always existed together with a strained and somewhat fragile peace. Most of the city’s denizens simply want to live out their daily lives in a simple cohabitation. Life, however is rarely so easy. There are five large gangs within the city limits, one of the more powerful ones being made up completely of monsters. The balance of power between the four human mafia gangs and the monster mob is delicate, spurring racism and acts of violence from both sides.
    Frisk, the younger sister of infamous detective Chara Dreemurr, receives an anonymous call with clues to the case against her older brother’s sudden mysterious disappearance. Unable to obtain police assistance, she takes up her brother’s mantle and plunges into the seedy underbelly of Ebott City’s criminal organizations. Each new piece of information only brings about more questions as the web of confusion and deceit is spun around her. Who can she trust in this dangerous game? Will she find Chara before it’s too late or will she become hopelessly entangled in the sinister lifestyles of the mob?

    Summary

    Con los dedos manchados y resbalosos, de sudor, tinta y un poco de sangre, el joven inglés firma la última de las veintidós páginas de su diario de notas en las cuales plasmó sus vertiginosas últimas dos semanas. Los nudillos de la mano le dolían, y se lamentaba ligeramente de no haber permitido que le “corrigieran” la manía de escribir con la zurda.
    “La única cosa de la que me arrepiento” —se permitió pensar, no sin ruborizarse por el espacio de un par de segundos. Después, tragó saliva. La ropa sucia se agolpaba alrededor de su figura enjuta, producto de haber vivido más afuera de su propia casa de lo que lo había hecho en su vida. Ropa, papeles, y una pistola sobre la cama, le daban una apariencia romántica y hasta idílica a la habitación, y Arthur se permitió recostarse dos minutos en el centro del caos. El conejo necesitaba refugiarse en su madriguera unos cuantos segundos, antes de enfrentar a los lobos.
    Pero no lo haría solo.
