    Summary

    "See here, see here! The Great Presto the Magician, here for one night, and one night only!" A young, blond boy shouted at the top of his lungs through the street, as he did every day. A small crowd had already gathered around him on that street corner, consisting of people passing by with no evening plans who'd been lured in by the young man's bravado.

    Tommy was a born entertainer, always had been. Even as a little boy, he used to sing or perform an improvised play on this very corner (as well as every other one nearby) to anyone who would listen. He was trained in the art of making people listen— drawing them in, capturing their attention and holding onto it until he decided they could move on.

    Tommy was a born entertainer; nearly as much as Wilbur was.

     

    or, catshifter!Tommy and Wilbur are street performers (and occasionally conmen on the side). A circus arrives into town, and they accidentally find a family.

    Summary

    Merlin has walked the Earth alone for centuries, waiting for the day that Arthur would return to him. He just never expected it to be by way of the circus. But, if nothing else, Merlin has learned how to roll with the punches, and when needs must that one joins a circus, then that is what he’ll do.

    And not as a clown, as the Arthur in his head would have said, thank you very much.

    Summary

    There are places you should not go.
    There are people you should not know.
    But if your lust should lie within,
    Welcome to the Circus of Sin.

    The ringmaster is raving mad.
    A favorite lost, a new one had.
    The road ahead is certain hell.
    But in the end, all will be well.

    Lark Amadeus knew better than to approach the tents. Mama always said nothing good could come from mingling with riff-raff. But the call to adventure was much too strong for the dreamy-eyed farm boy. He’d been isolated from the town at the behest of his family for 24 years and he yearned for something new.

    There were fantastical shadows behind the billowing black folds of fabric— alluring and sensual. The ringmaster and proprietor, Edinir Strange, seemed so charming. So charismatic. His smile was like that of a theater mask. Lark wanted to know him.

    Perhaps that was his first mistake.

    Summary

    When your parents died all their debt fell on your shoulders. You did everything you could but in the end, you were penniless and without a home. Reaching out to what relatives you had left, your uncle offered you a place, living and working at his little circus in the middle of the desert. It wasn't long after you moved into this little community that you found a strange abandoned tent hidden at the back of the grounds, a large tank inside. Posted just outside was a sign that read 'DANGER! KEEP OUT!' If you had headed the warning maybe you wouldn't be in this predicament but you also wouldn't have met the two most amazing creatures you have ever laid your eyes on.

    Summary

    Gordon started rummaging through the piles of paperwork on his desk, searching intently for something. "What can I do for you, Mr. Wayne?" he asked, patting his pockets.

    "I wanted to ask about the Haly's investigation," Bruce breathed.

    Peeking under a stack of folders, Gordon nodded. "I see. Were you there for the show last night?" He yanked open a desk drawer, digging around inside.

    "In a private box."

    "For the whole show?"

    The younger man nodded.

    "And you were still there when the accident occurred?"

    "It wasn't an accident."

    ---

    The circus is in town. Bruce, investigating a series of disappearances, decides to attend a show. Instead of a suspect, what he finds is a pig mask that leads to child murder, torture, kidnapping, body horror, and religious zealotry that almost rivals the Spanish Inquisition.

    Summary

    Love so often ends in tragedy when it's meant to bring light into the lives of all it touches. Someone can be stabbed through the heart out of the grief that was purely caused by love. This short story follows a woman as she grabbles with the choice she made a child to not fall into the grasp of love and how eventually she does. Only falling in love with another woman at a time when it was deemed as unholy as alcohol.

    The setting is the prohibition 1920s at an unnamed Gay Bar in NYC.
