    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

    Victor first heard whispers of a con so good that they seemed mythical, when he was still studying in Quantico.

    The con-artist was like an invisible force of nature, almost magnetic, unable to be detected by itself, whose presence could only be seen by the negative space created by the surrounding chaos.

    Victor, who had traded in his childish fancies for a badge and a gun, was - despite himself - intrigued. The con and the frustratingly oblique tales of their existence had grabbed a hold of his mind and wouldn’t let go. While Victor theoretically knew that he shouldn’t believe the existence of something on faith alone...

     

    Yet…

    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

    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.
