    Summary

    Reader has been a lone wolf for a long time, and intends for it to stay that way. However, she soon realises that having a little company and help from others isn’t so bad.

    Super slow burn fic, loosely following the events of the game (so full of spoilers), it may not necessarily be in perfect chronological order/follow canon completely. I'll be changing certain things up whenever I see fit, and while some characters may die, Arthur will not. It's going to have smut in it later down the line! Finally, this is unlikely to be completely historically accurate since I'm not a historian, but I will try and be as accurate as possible :)

    Summary

    The Pirate Queen has three years left to save her kingdom. Edward Elric is running out the clock until his brother goes mad. One needs the blood of a siren, the other the heart of a princess. It's hate, then pity, then guilt at first sight. They're not meant to be. They'll make it work.

    Even if it kills them.

    Summary

    For nearly the past decade, Kurt Hummel and his best friend Rachel Berry have made their living swindling unsuspecting bachelors. Which proves to be pretty easy on his conscience, considering he doesn’t believe in love anymore. As they always say: “You can’t con an honest man... Good thing they don’t exist.” But their mark for their last con before they go their separate ways—Blaine Anderson—may just prove otherwise, and restore Kurt’s faith in love in the process.

    Klaine Heartbreakers!AU, side Finchel, HummelBerry con artist duo

    Summary

    This is the story of the tv series as a novel. The dialog follows the series, but there are also new scenes filling the gaps in the story. I wanted to capture the spirit of White Collar and the friendship between Peter and Neal. Part 3 starts with "All in" and ends with "Hard sell".

    Summary

    Temerity Hiraeth grew up swindling drunkards out of their money; not because she liked it (she did), but because her brother couldn't have all the fun taking care of them. As we meet the siblings later in life (Petrichor and Pyra have now renamed themselves, as is common among tieflings), this ficlet explores a fleeting moment in the life of Temerity, AKA 'Madam Mystery.'

    Summary

    “Alright. New case. Someone is fucking up with dead bodies.” There’s a collective groan at that. Dealing with necrophilia was one time too many. “It’s not necrophilia,” Margo counters. “Irene McAllistair and her brother are embezzling money from the dying and the grieving. Classic grift.”
    “Cruel grift,” Eliot says. “Even I never ran that one. It’s tacky.”
    “That’s saying something,” Quentin mutters in his bowl and gets Eliot’s pointy elbow in his ribs in retaliation.
    “Hey, I’ve always grifted classy.”
    “Uh-uh, what about—”
    “Nope, we’re not going there.”
    “Hey, dickholes,” Margo cuts. “You can flirt all you want once I’m done, but until then, you shut the fuck up.”

    or the Magicians crew is a group of Magicians/con-artists Leverage style.
    or a heist goes sideways and Eliot needs to deal with his feelings.

    Summary

    “This is just like last time.” She admitted, her voice dropping an octave. She could hear her throat going. She walked away before Debbie could see the tears brimming in her eyes. It was Vegas '97 all over again.

    Debbie slowly turned so they were practically just short of touching lips.
    “Lou, I—"
    “You do not run a job in a job.”
    Debbie’s lips faltered, failing to make a coherent sentence. She watched Lou close her mouth abruptly as if trying to bite her own tongue before revealing something more. Lou slipped away headed towards the exit to the roof.

    Lou paused to pick up the scotch glass on the table by the door. Without turning around, in a low voice, she flatly said, “Don’t ever make me have this conversation with you again.”

    Summary

    Eccedentesiast is an English word formed from three Latin roots: ecce, I present; dentes, teeth (here, a smile); and iast, one who performs or entertains. Its derived meaning is that of an individual who hides pain or malcontent behind a smile. By combining these roots, the word’s literal meaning becomes the following: I present to you teeth as a performer.

    Summary

    '“Why do you have a gun?!”
    “I’m an ex-con artist living in L.A. of course I have a fucking gun! Why don’t you have a gun?”
    “Because I’m not a fucking psycho!” Shane gives him a look that suggests he feels that’s debatable. “And I don’t wanna kill anyone!”
    “Neither do I!” Shane glances apprehensively at the door “But it might be handy to shoot someone in the foot so they don’t shoot me in the head! Now. How. Many.”'

    They were partners in more than just crime once. A bad print job and a forged Degas later and Ryan has nowhere to turn but to the one man he swore he'd never see again, the man made all the more dangerous for the fact he had loved him once.

    Summary

    If there were three things to remember about Stiles Stilinski it was that he only deals in cash, he doesn’t belong to any Pack, and no one is allowed to touch. If Stiles were to remember three things it would be to always maintain eye contact, show a little skin, and let his reputation speak for itself.

    History will remember Stiles many different ways. The infamous Las Vegas mage. The man who put a price on peace of mind. The hungry kid who asked a simple question:

    Summary

    Five years ago, private investigator Viktor Nikiforov came to Detroit in search of one Yuri, but stayed for another. Now, an urgent letter from Moscow forces Viktor to face his past mistakes, and maybe even question facts he had long since determined to be true. Why is it that Yuuri, his Yuuri, won’t trust Viktor with more than a first name and the promise of tomorrow? And is it mere coincidence that Otabek Altin, an infamous black-market antiquities dealer, is back in town right before the opening of a much-anticipated Russian jewellery exhibit?

    And perhaps the most important question of all – is Yuri Plisetsky, heir to the Agape Estate as well as the entire Plisetsky family fortune, still alive after all?
