    Summary

    I held a drabble game on Tumblr for reaching 1000 followers. I have 25 in total to complete so this will be updated as I post them. I tried to do a different AU for each drabble to see what I could write.

    Summary

    Noctis Caelum is a known art forger and con man. Agent Ignis Scientia works for the Lucis Bureau of Investigation, in white collar crimes.

    Both men are smart, but it is only a matter of time before a certain LBI agent catches up with Noctis. As it turns out, however, getting caught was part of Noctis' plan all along.

    Summary

    "We’re not doing this in bloody Mallorca,” Louis hisses over the line.

    “Louis, listen to me.”

    “No. Are you forgetting what I’ve told you? The richer people are, the more suspicious. They’re not going to let us get that close.”

     

    Or, a Heartbreakers AU with Louis and Zayn as the con artists and Harry as their mark. Kind of.

    Summary

    At the very back of The Roundelay, in a shadowed corner of one of the most famous venues in The Web, Forsoth's own entertainment district, one can find an eye-catching sight. A beautiful woman, donning exotic clothes, sits at a table talking to a white rabbit and drinking from a tall glass. A long, midnight blue cape and a squat top-hat of the same made and fabric frame her figure. She's a magician, a master of the elements she masterfully bends to serve her tricks and illusions, to stun and amaze her audience. She performs here, when the place is packed enough to be worth her while. Otherwise, she can lend her skills - for a price.
    "What's with the bunny, you ask? But why, she's my assistant!"

    But her story doesn't begin in Forsoth. It starts many years before, in a slow-moving, hard-working mining town of Northern Emera, during one stuffy afternoon that will change everything.

    Summary

    After months of planning, the Death Eaters are prepared to steal the Philosopher's Stone from the Magic Is Might artifact exhibition. However, before they can attend the exhibit, vengeful, cruel (and, frankly, idiotic) enemies appear from the fold.

    Sunnarized, Tonks and Hermione kick arse, Ron and Romilda snog, and Tom pretends he's more important than he is.

    Summary

    While Tyrone and Tandy are figuring themselves out in Earth-616, Earth-615 doesn't have the same time constraints.
    Or even the same Divine Pairing.

    Tyra Johnson and Tanner Bowen come from dramatically different backgrounds but both share a secret that they can never share with another soul.
    Once a priveleged boy, Tanner was powerless to stop a company accident from tearing his family apart. Now eight years older and world-weary, he's a conman with a silver tongue and a dangerous habit.
    Young Tyra had only ever wanted to be brave - just like her older brother, Billy but when a terrible incident tears her family apart and leaves her beliefs shaken, she learns that the world doesn't favor the brave. Closing herself off from the world, she doesn't expect much from Tanner and Tanner doesn't expect much from her.
    But they're all they (and the rest of New Orleans) have.

    Summary

    Whenever Taichi goes to work, he puts his mask on, and pretends to be someone else for his entire shift. An empty husk calling itself Taichi scams people for a couple hours a day, only to return at night in hopes of being reunited with its soul, but Taichi lost his soul the second Ryuuhei had him in a firm grip. Taichi slowly forgets who he really is, as he constantly has to change who he is in order to appease whoever he’s with or whatever he’s doing. At work, he puts on one mask. On his way home to Ryuuhei, he puts on another. Never once does he reveal his true face again, and soon enough, it becomes a habit.

    *

    All he wants is to die. Anything but this. Anything but having to continue to endure this shit from Ryuuhei, every day, every week. How has he lasted this long, how hasn’t Ryuuhei killed him yet? Accident or not, sometimes Taichi thinks the violence brought upon him should’ve ended his life. Maybe that’s the point. Ryuuhei wants him to think he’ll die, but Taichi won’t die. He can’t run, he can’t escape, he can’t die.

    --

    This is the story of how an earthquake sets a man free by killing him.

    Summary

    Prompt: Sam Wilson tells Steve Rogers that he’s found the best con artist/pickpocket in NYC, guy named Bucky Barnes. He’s an actor, off-Broadway, not too bad. Sam says that Steve should go check him out.

    Pairing: Steve/Bucky

    Author's Note: I love this original prompt with all the RL boys from the Marvel franchise.

    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?

    Summary

    In his normal world, Murphy would have dreamt of fire and of disease, of bruises and of blood. In this world, turned so freshly on its on head, and with this man that Murphy, quickly and inexplicably, trusts like he'd trust a lover with big brown eyes, he dreams of amulets and of velvet carpet, of freckles and of spelunking in caves.

    ☆。✼。★。✼。☆

    John Murphy is a con artist peddling pawn shop rejects as magic artifacts on the street. Bellamy Blake is a curator for a traveling magic antique show with a habit of taking in strays. When the curator takes off with an artifact that really works, Murphy will go to great lengths to get it back.

    The charming keeper and his eccentric family don't plan on making Murphy's heist an easy endeavor. Not at all.

    Summary

    웃유 ╾━╤デ╦︻ 웃

    "This lissome blonde will entertain men as told, albeit with little evidence of desire or sexual interest.
    In fact, there is hardly any evidence that she possesses strong emotions at all,
    yet she has the hegemonic power to make men think they are madly in love with her mind, throat, and soul.
    To be easily colonized by this woman is to end your own life."

    But is Westergaard's wife a coy victim or a cold villain? In a world where decadence is kinged by mafias, gamblers, Nazis, blondes, call girls, and burlesque dancers, a smutty thief attempts to pick both of their locks. Hers should've been left alone, though. Along with those sparkly sapphires, that disturbing diary, and the Holy Grail between her legs.

    Summary

    Best friends and roommates Harry, Hermione and Tonks each have special skills that make them perfect for the London crime scene. Harry, a student in criminology and fashion, is a master of disguise. Tonks, with street-skills and sticky fingers, is unashamed to use her body for what she calls 'The Greater Good'. And although Hermione is a rule-following perfectionist, she's likely the cleverest librarian assistant around, with an affiliation for gathering information of all sorts.

    In a story of revenge, star-crossed love, crime and passion, our dreadful trio cross the line between light and dark, juggling school work, friends and douche-bag ex-lovers. Not to mention Harry's current douche-bag lover, Tom Riddle; tall, dark, and running the largest con operation in Greater London.

    Summary

    Mimic Sour is a demon, a con artist, and right now, out of a job. Bored and restless, he finds a new racket by starting his own company, Kryptonite Advertising ("No Good Deed Goes Unnoticed, Always Replicated, Never Duplicated!") for the superheroes who can catch a speeding bullet but can't seem to catch the spotlight. Charming his way through, over, or around all obstacles, Mimic seems almost as invincible as his clientele before everything takes a turn for the apocalyptic. After all, behind every good con man is a good story, and possibly several small fires.
