    Summary

    Boston. 2080. A city with as many shady secrets as it can hold, and maybe even a few more. The wealth gap keeps widening, crime isn't cleaning itself up anytime soon, and dark conspiracies run through banned papers in underground speakeasies. As if the threat of the Chinese atom bomb isn't enough.

    A stray comes in from the rain, and R.J. MacCready is sucked into a twisting, sordid mystery that sinks to the depths of Boston's most well kept secrets, all centered around the last girl you'd ever expect to have so many monsters in her closet.

    But, as Nick Valentine likes to say, one should always expect the unexpected. And looks can be very, very deceiving.

    (Modern/noir AU) Fai Fluorite, successor to the Celes empire, is on an upward rise in the underworld when the mysterious Yuuko Ichihara, widow to Clow Reed, disappears. As rivaling families and new faces begin battling for control over her assets in the aftermath, and as Fai desperately tries to manage an increasingly dangerous workload, the line between enemy and ally blurs.

    “My phone, handsome,” Fai chides. “Give me your number.”

    Kurogane frowns. “We’re on opposing sides.”

    “So?” Fai asks. “It didn’t stop you from helping me.”

    Kurogane continues to stare. “This is stupid.”

    “Isn’t it?” Fai asks.

    Summary

    New York City, early 1930's
    Joseph "Rumblin' Joe" Lynch quits his underground boxing career under strange circumstances. Tony Zeppeli, a private detective and descendant of a family of vampire hunters, is sent to investigate, and the two strike an unlikely alliance in a city of violent gangs, bizarre happenings, and a new mob boss who has drawn Stand users as well as undead creatures to his side.

    This is an original part of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure taking place in a new timeline. Like with Parts 7 and 8, expect some familiar names or characters to pop up in new contexts.

    - Stands are named after classic movies
    - Undead and Hamon + Stand powers
    - This will probably be a long fic
    - Will add tags and (maybe) warnings as the fic progresses
    - Updates whenever I feel like it
