    Summary

    Nathan Wesninsky was dead. And so was Lola Malcolm. Romero Malcolm. They were all dead, their bodies scattered over the floors tainted with blood, with the prospect of peace. Baltimore could start healing.

    Nathan Wesninsky was dead, but his killer was smiling, and Andrew couldn't shake off the feeling that it wasn't the end of anything. The city thrived off crime, and the crime itself was so much bigger than a triple murder. So much more important in the bright white of the interrogation room.

    The killer was smiling. Andrew sat into a chair across him.

    Cameras stayed off.

    Summary

    The Fox Intelligence Agency’s latest recruit, Neil Josten, is showing great promise. The only problem’s that he can’t stand one of the agency’s best agents — Andrew Minyard. And apparently, the feeling’s mutual.

    When the feud between them almost costs the team a mission, Director Wymack decides that the best course of action would be to send the two on a bonding trip.

    That is, he assigns them a top-secret infiltration mission, where the only way for them to survive would be to learn to cooperate.

     

    A spy AU.

    Summary

    It has been ten years since Andrew Minyard last saw Neil Josten.
    Ten years since he last met those icy blue eyes, since he last touched those ragged scars, since he last kissed those vicious lips.
    It has been ten years since the Butcher of Baltimore kidnapped his son and tried to rip him apart with flames and knives.

    It has been ten years since he found a tattered duffel bag, a ring of keys, and a sloppily written letter telling him no for the first time.

    An AU where Stuart does manage to kill Nathan in time, but Neil is whisked off by the Moriyamas to train as the next Butcher instead of continuing as an exy player. Andrew knows Neil is alive, but is told that Nathaniel no longer wants to see him, and that it would be best for the goalie to just move on. And he tries to, until a candlelit dinner, a shootout, and a slew of messed-up morals throws Andrew and Neil into each other’s paths again.

    Summary

    Andrew is an actor and one of the stars of the hyped drama show “All for the game” about a fantasy sport. He likes the pay-check... and that’s about it. He dislikes the rest, especially selling himself for interviews and promotions.
    He gets the enthusiasm of their viewers even less - there are fans that run fan pages solely about the series, draw its actors or write fanfiction. Such a stupid waste of time!
    The gorgeous mouthy reporter might change his attitude, however. Unfortunately, the promising evening ends very different from what Andrew had in mind and his first aid skills are a bit rusty.

    Riko is an actor as well and makes life difficult for them as always. Mary lives (for the time being), but she and Neil split up for most of the time. Neil and a rescued Jean work as reporters, so Neil and Andrew meet at one of their interviews.
    After 10 days their exciting time together comes to an end as Neil is to work for the Mariyamas.
    Will they meet again?

    Summary

    Nathaniel has only ever known violence. The worst of which directly from his own father. Nathaniel is told he only has worth as an asset to the Moriyamas meaning his survival lies within his compliance. However, Nathaniel’s temper can only be suppressed for so long.
    ~~~~
    Excerpt:
    Nathaniel Abram Wesninski should have never been born. His father, Nathan, was a cruel man involved in an illegal business of sorts who wielded a sharp smile and an even sharper blade. His mother, Mary, was an icy woman who tried her best to shield her son from his father's rage, but oftentimes she was the one who ended up giving him faint bruises in an effort to keep him quiet and unnoticed. From the moment he was born, his life was destined to be one of suffering and pain.

    Summary

    His brother’s silence was telling in itself, but Neil’s skin was itching with anxiety already. He didn’t appreciate Ichirou being a drama queen right now.

    "The Russians."

    "What Russians now?" Neil whined. He was so done with goddamn Russia.

    "Mika Todorova. Ring a bell?"

    Neil's whole body tensed immediately at the mention of the name. Flashes of dyed black hair and blue eyes crowded his vision so he forced himself to close his eyes. "What about her?"

    Ichirou fell into a long silence, as though he was gathering his thoughts to articulate them properly, "You knew she was a daughter of an assassin," He started accusingly. "And yet, you still dared to sleep with her?"

    Or:
    Where Mary dies before they can escape and Nathaniel later turns out to be a scheming little bastard, who decides to befriend Ichirou and Riko Moriyama for their mutual benefit - he becomes an assassin.
    Which takes him to Andrew Doe and his current abusers.
    Oh, and the russian mafia. We can't forget the russian mafia.

    Summary

    Nathaniel watched the man be sliced and torn from limb to limb. The cries of sheer agony vibrated off the marble floors, echoing back as if to mock him. Pleas for it to cease, pleas for mercy, pleas for death, Nathaniel had heard it all before. There was no place left in his heart for pity, so he willed the numbness to take its place.

    Ichirou sat regal on a velvet chair, staring blankly at the scene before him. He glanced down at Nathaniel’s knelt form at his right. The man’s breaths had become short and labored. Ichirou reached down to trace his gloved finger over Nathaniel’s cheek, in an almost ghost of a touch. Nathaniel's gaze did not leave the man on the floor.

    “Finish it.” At Ichirou’s simple command, Nathaniel stood, pulling a silenced pistol from his waist band.

    “Yes, my Lord.”

    Nathaniel never acquired his father’s taste for the knife. No, he was not the Butcher, but the Reaper.

    Or

    Neil is never sold to the ravens. Instead, he is given to be raised up by Ichirou to be his right-hand man. So, when Kevin Day flees to South Carolina after a mysterious accident, Ichiro sends Nathaniel to investigate. He must decide whether to let him live or to finish what Riko started.

    Summary

    An AU where Mary never got Nathaniel out. Instead, he became too invaluable of an asset to be killed off or 'gifted' to Tetsuji. Instead, he's raised with Ichirou and Jean as a part of Ichirou's inner circle.

    He'd always had a knack for languages and lying and all the 'messy stuff' came easily enough when your father is called the Butcher of Baltimore. So Nathaniel became the Wraith. He was untraceable, unknowable, infalliable; a criminal fairytale.

    When Kevin Day leaves the Nest, there's no better person to send.

    ~

    "Who the hell are you?" Andrew demanded.

    He wasn't anyone, not really; not anymore. He hadn't really been anyone in years now. There'd been a time. Once. But there were entire lifetimes between who he could have been and what he'd become. He could taste it sometimes; blackberries and sand stinging his tongue like the iron branded on his shoulder.

    It was easier to pretend he'd never been anyone at all.

    "I'm nothing," he answered. the ghost of a smile pulled at his lips; sharp and cruel. "A wraith." The Wraith, he didn't say, but the shadows ran through Adnrew's eyes and he wondered if Andrew had heard it anyways.

    Summary

    The day Jean Moreau walked onto the court with a ‘4’ on his cheek side by side with Kevin Day’s ’2’ and Riko Moriyama’s ‘1,’ everyone had the same question: where was number three? And more importantly, who were they?

    where Nathaniel Wesninski never ran away and became exactly what he was meant to be, a boy marked by death in the shape of the number three.

    Summary

    Neil was a fugitive in the most literal sense of the word. He'd been running for as long as he could remember — his few moments of courage during childhood to protect his siblings didn't change what he was. He ran away from absolutely everything.
    From his father.
    From his people.
    From his kingdom.
    From his family.
    From his Anam.
    From himself.
    But running away wouldn't be an option forever, not when his fate seemed to bring him to the door of the people he ran to protect.
    At some point, Neil was going to have to stop running and face up to what he was created to do. At some point, Neil would have to accept who and what he was.
    And apparently, this moment had finally arrived.

    Summary

    There was little they could do, let alone see Neil's condition. He was desperate, lost and they could only tell he was alive by his breathing and his eyes.
    Because, as much as the life had gone out of his body, anger still gleamed in his eyes. It burned like the flames of hell itself.
    Andrew could be called a monster all they wanted, but right now…
    ...was Neil the one everyone trembled with with dread.

    Summary

    A hurricane traveling up the coast from Florida is set to touch down in Palmetto, a problem no one predicted would incur anything other than storm damages. But the foxes learn the hard way that hurricanes fuck with barometric pressure, which fucks with scar tissue, something Neil happens to have a lot of.

    So when he wakes up in excruciating pain, convinced that the past seven months after Baltimore weren’t real, he does the one thing he’d promised not to do anymore…

    He runs.

    Andrew isn’t far behind of course, but Neil is firm in his belief that he never actually left the car with Lola. There’s also a flash flood advisory to worry about, and he very much tore out of Fox Tower in nothing but a t-shirt and boxer shorts during a literal tropical storm.

    or

    Neil has a dissociative episode that sends him running and Andrew does a lot of feeling over it, begrudgingly, but still.

    Summary

    Nathaniel Wesninski has been asked by his dearest brother (no blood association), Ichirou Moriyama, to go play for the Foxes under the guise of Neil Josten, while his other brother (no blood association), Jean Moreau, is playing for the Ravens. All for the sole purpose of making sure that Riko Moriyama (the idiot) hasn't fucked things up for everyone.

    Summary

    Nathaniel can’t move a muscle and he doesn't even know if he would if he could. He’s in such a petrified state that he could barely even hear his father's words. All he can hear and feel is his heart beating in his chest. Lola giggles so loud Nathaniel knows she did it so he could hear her loud and clear. The screaming stopped a while ago. Nathaniel can’t really point out when. Perhaps it was when he started to go numb all over.

    A slab of skin lays at his fit. A thigh or part of a hip. Whatever it was Nathaniel could smell it. The smell of flesh is something Nathaniel has grown accustomed to living in The Butcher's house. It's a smell that wafts through the air and will probably always linger. Skin and human meat lay everywhere in the basement, just spread out every which way. The blood, oh fuck the blood. There are pools of it so that you can't walk anywhere in the basement without staining your shoes in it.
    -
    In which Nathaniel Wesninski never escaped and instead became Ichirou Moriyama's personal dog.

    Summary

    Natalie Shields's life was bad enough that she joined Detroit's Bloodhound gang in a desperate attempt at survival.

    Summary

    "Do you wanna fucking bet, you piece of shit?" Alex provoked almost yelling.

    "Do you wanna die?" Nathaniel raised an eyebrown, more amused than threatening.

    "Oww, shush" Andrew Wesninski said "Cockfights are illegal"

    "Can you stop making innuendos?" Abram asked with a blushed face and annoyed expression,

    "I literally meant roosters. What a dirty mind, Abram."

    . . . . . . . .

    Or, Neil and Andrew were scientists trying to figure out how the multiverse work so they could save Kevin, who got lost and couldn't find his own universe, but something went wrong and they ended up bringing five versions of themselves from different universes.

    Summary

    Neil Josten betritt das Nest für Andrew, bleibt jedoch für viel mehr.

    ~
    "Es tut mir leid, Coach", murmelte er.
    "Was, Junge?" Wymack rutschte auf seinem Sessel nach vorne. "Da musst du schon etwas genauer sein."

    Er sah den Kummer in Neils Augen, während ein Stoß Papier Hände wechselte. Er sah auf einen Vertrag mit den Edgar Allan Raven's herab.
    "Ich habe unterschrieben, Coach, es tut mir leid."

    ~

    Summary

    Neil Josten goes to the Nest for Andrew, but he stays for a lot more.

    ~

    "I'm sorry Coach," he muttered.

    "For what kid?" Wymack shifted. "You've got to give me something to work with here."

    Wymack watched the thin traces of sorrow as paper exchanged hands and he was looking down at a contract with the Edgar Allan Raven's.

    "I signed them Coach, I'm sorry."

    ~

    The one where Neil doesn't come back from Winter Break.
