    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.

There's one thing she didn't plan for though - meeting a Ms. Berenice Wolfe.

    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.

    This is a set of one shots that I will be gradually updating every 3 weeks or every month depending on my muse and how fast or how inspired I feel about the one shots.
    Each one shot is different and dedicated to someone, the person that gave me the prompt.
    I will try my best to update every month or so.

    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

    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.
