    Summary

    Oil and Vinegar is a offside passion project set outside the Zootopian Canon and the "In Cold Blood Universe".

    Set in a 1960's Zootopia, a young, yet old-school suave Nick Wilde, is tasked as an Undercover Investigator. Typically his day job is nothing exciting, filing background checks or piles of paperwork, and a divided Zootopia means usually his only clients are carnivores. However, a young, optimistic, and nosy Judy Hopps seeks out the expertise of Nick Wilde to investigate a growing criminal organization, engineering a narcotic by the name of "NightHowlers". Nick, going against his best interests, will tear the division between Carnivores and Herbivores apart by taking on Judy's case. It quickly turns out that Nick and Judy both bit off more than they can chew. Sometimes, things are best left undisturbed, and now Nick is not only caught in a high-profile case tangled with sabotage, seduction, and murder, but also a new love interest, and of all things, a bunny.

    Summary

    After the death of his partner in a standoff with a shadowy crime syndicate known as the First Order, Poe Dameron leaves the police force to become a private detective. But the life of a PI isn’t as glamorous as he imagines, every day a never ending drudge of missing persons and cheating spouses. That is, until SHE walks in.

    Rey Skywalker, heiress of the Skywalker fortune, is everything he’d once dreamed of in a client. Pretty, dim, and richer than god, she brings with her a curious case regarding her father, the reclusive Luke Skywalker. At first glance, it’s an open and shut case. But as events and clues unfold, Poe realizes there’s more to both Rey and the case than meets the eye.

    Will he be able to solve the case in time? And what does Luke Skywalker have to do with the mysterious First Order? All will be revealed during the Curious Case of Luke Skywalker.

    Summary

    The Krogans say that the only stories worth telling are those of love, sex, and war. Remix and retelling of canon with original content and AU spanning ME1-3. A reinvention of the lore and origins of Jane Shepard and Garrus Vakarian before and during the Reaper War.

    Featuring an original past of a ‘survivor’ female Shepard as a drala'fa ('the ignored') from Omega. Jane is a closed-off, somewhat mysterious femme-fatale paragade with secrets stemming from her checkered past, struggling with changes from her visions caused by touching the beacon on Eden Prime.

    The story explores multiple tones, including a noir loss of innocence story for Garrus concerning his metamorphosis into Archangel. Detailed reflections from the perspectives of other characters and crew, including a deep exploration of Thane. Includes slips into the surreal with an emphasis on canonical and original expanded lore, belief systems, and culture within the Mass Effect Universe.

    This is the complete prose and plot rework of the unfinished original version posted to fanfiction.net from years back.
