    Summary

    A neo noir detective AU set in late 50s - early 60s.

    Detective James Buchanan Barnes, the top brass of the homicide unit in the NYPD encounters the case of a lifetime. Women getting killed left and right under the most bizarre circumstances. Something he hadn't thought he'd see in his wildest dreams. A budding romance, with a burlesque dancer of all people. Deceit, dreams, friendship and love. Will he be able to save everything he holds dear before the inferno of a man blinded by rage consumes them all? Or will he see the world around him burn as he is left helpless and hopeless, nothing he can do but watch in pain as everything he built for himself just crumbles into the abyss?

    I've always been a sucker for the neo-noir stuff. Add in Bucky as a detective, suit and all? Ooomph. Big ooomph.

    Do leave a comment or two. I actually read all of them and try to make changes to my writing if there's a problem. I want to improve!

    Summary

    It was a foggy morning in Jing City as a young to middle aged man lay in the middle of the street, his throat slashed as blood from his neck pooled next to him. All around the body, onlookers were gasping and staring while a tall man with light skin, brown eyes, and dark brown hair dressed in a three piece cream suit overlaid with a long cream overcoat knelt next to the body, studying it. As more and more people kept coming to look at the body, a police van suddenly pulled up and a few officers stepped out, heading towards the scene.

    Summary

    The Ackerman duo. Just the mention of this name filled Hange with so many feelings. Mostly, when she reread the files of their cases over and over, until her eyes watered, she felt pricking annoyance. Sometimes, when she stared at the dead bodies of those scarce unfortunates who stumbled upon their crimes, she was filled with hatred and a pushing need for revenge. Hange couldn't deny, however, there were times when she marveled at the impudence of their crimes. And, when she was investigating the Ackerman's cases and saw just how meticulously planned they all were, she couldn't help but feel something close to fascination.

    No one knew who they were. No one had seen their faces, no one knew their true names. Almost everyone knew of their crimes.

    Hange was determined to unravel every last one of their secrets. She will put an end to their crimes and then she will get the elusive Ackermans behind bars.

    Summary

    The Hemlock Killer, Chicago’s most notorious cold case, is known for his ability to charm not only his victims, but the public at large. Despite being arrested on multiple occasions, Wayne Jonhson has walked away each time, unscathed and more beloved by the public.

    When new evidence surfaces, Detective Soojin Seo will stop at nothing to put him behind bars. Even if that means working with Seattle native, Minnie Kim; the new coroner with a polarising sense of fashion, tactless sense of humour, and weird, Martha Stewart-like, OCD girlfriend who’s enigmatic little sister is obsessed with sweaters that are two sizes too big, has a puzzling life philosophy and a kooky obsession for pruning trees. And what's up with the Texan wanna be, Californian, cousin?

    At least Soyeon is normal…ish.

    Summary

    The music started with a deep, rich note on the bass, and she stepped forward, toward the microphone, completely into the spotlight, her silver dress pure shine and sparkle, the line of her body clearly visible, so visible Ted thought maybe he shouldn’t be looking, shouldn’t be allowed to look.

    Summary

    Technoblade was supposed to be retired. Yet here he is, sitting in a cafe with his old boss. The last case broke him, it was brutal, and now someone is dead, his friend is dead. He got sick of the violence; he felt like it was slowly taking him over. Like he was being replaced by someone else.

    “This is nothing like anything we’ve seen. We need you,” Scott insisted, he sounded desperate. It also sounded like it was a personal problem Techno shouldn’t have to deal with.

    “I can’t,” Techno deadpanned, pinching the bridge of his nose. He couldn’t go back to that, couldn’t go back to hearing them.

    “Techno,” Scott sighed, his blue eyes, pleading and begging for Techno. “Please.”

    He tried to say no when they first called him weeks ago, but he declined the call. When they called him again and again, he just ended up blocking the number. He ignored the letters and emails, even the knocks on his door. However, Scott sat down across from him while he drank his morning coffee.

    “Explain the case to me.”

    Summary

    Ask Ji Jingwu, and he'll tell you that he has everything under control—even though it's been 12 weeks since the spate of kidnappings began, 4 people now stand missing, and the media is in an uproar.

    Ask Ji Jingwu, and he'll say that he doesn't need help from Mu Siyang and his team—Jingwu's detectives are perfectly capable of doing their jobs, and while they haven't gotten any new leads in weeks, he does not really see why he should just hand all their work over to Siyang and the insufferable detectives he has with him.

    Ask Ji Jingwu, and he'll say that he doesn't actually care for Mu Siyang at all, with his crisp white shirts and unruffled demeanor and habit of seeing right through Jingwu's aloof nature.

    Ask Ji Jingwu, and he'll say everything is fine. Really.

    (Narrator: It was not, in fact, fine.)

    Summary

    “I can tell a lot about people,” Xie Lian continued. “I get inside killers’ heads for a living; I know their maternal traumas before I even know their eye colour.” He turned to face Hua-Yisheng, who loomed above him. “Imagine what I can figure out about a person standing right in front of me.”

    Once out of his mouth, however, Xie Lian bit his tongue. Above him, the hanged man’s guts ceased swaying as the temple air settled.

    Suddenly, Xie Lian was reminded that he did not know Hua-Yisheng at all.

    “Geto Suguru. Surely, this whole introduction is unnecessary.”

    -------------

    They were the greatest detectives in Tokyo until they weren't. Ten years later, Gojo found himself deeply intertwined with his bestfriend once again. Except this time they're both dads, and he can talk to ghosts while Suguru killed and ate people.
