    Summary

    “Do you think she’s alone?” He looked at me with his lips pressed in a thin line. He was studying me; I don’t know what he saw, but he must have liked it fine.
    “No,” he finally said. “I don’t think she’s alone.”
    “You’re a special kind of husband, if you mind as little as you seem to,” I observed, and he laughed, a sharp, brittle thing.
    “You have no idea what kind of husband I am,” he said, and disappeared behind the frosted glass of the office door.
    He was right: I didn’t have any idea. But I knew I wanted to find out.

     

    When Peg Hunnicutt disappears without a trace, BJ is the prime suspect. He enlists hardboiled Hawkeye Pierce to track her down and clear his name, but how can Hawkeye be sure he's as innocent as he seems?

    Summary

    A little idea I had, it just came as a noir. Love the style, but haven't read much so just bear with me.

    First work, started a while back, finished during the pandemics. Had to let it go or else I'd be still rewriting it. It's complete and I think it's time to share it.

    Would love to hear what you guys think and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did writing it.

    NYC. Post-Great War, gloomy weather, fancy clothes, booze, a femme fatale, a P.I., and a mystery to solve.

    Summary

    Jedi Knight Richar Arten and his Padawan Calia Rayyah have been hard at work doing everything they can to make Level 1442 a safer place for the struggling beings of the underlevels. With the Clone Wars continuing unabated, forcing more and more refugees and other poor sentients into the underworld, opportunistic criminals are expanding further and further through the bowels of Coruscant.

    Now the Pirate Queen known only as Astera has set her sights on the little island of safety and security the two Jedi have worked so hard to build, determined to flood the streets with the bane of all life in the underworld, death sticks. A drug so dangerous and addictive it is known to cut off a being’s connection to the Force, driving them to commit terrible acts. Such as blinding a lost young boy for a handful of credits.

    With the stakes more personal than ever, the hunt is on! But who is the hunter and who is the hunted? As the Jedi are not only themselves under attack by Astera’s agents, but their friends throughout the 1442. Not all is as it seems however, and it will take all of Calia’s determination and Arten’s skill and to survive the Deathstick Gambit.

    Summary

    Light believes Kira has no more enemies. He has conquered and brought his usurpers to their knees. Kira's brand new world will thrive with L out of the picture. The Kira Task Force is a farce. But Light didn't count on someone stepping out of the shadows to challenge Kira with such boldness and tenacity, and who has a diabolic plan to seed his vengeance against Kira in such a way that Light's humiliation of L won't compare to what Light will suffer.

    It all starts on Light's birthday. A killer is challenging Kira and murdering people with a unique pattern. But who is 'Beyond Birthday' and why is he targeting Light? Is this about L? Attacked and targeted at every turn, Light must rise to the challenge of Beyond Birthday's machinations. Meanwhile, another threat looms on the horizon from a different source. He wants Kira defeated, but also Beyond Birthday humiliated and dead. History is about to catch up to them in separate ways, and they are thrown into a game of life and death that could be more than either one of them can handle.

    Summary

    Original Prompt:
    "Jensen is a private eye, Jared is a gorgeous "dame" that comes into his office with a case (for example, his sibling or significant other is dead/missing) and trouble.

    Turn the noir-y style in the writing up to eleven. This could be non-AU J2 roleplaying as well."

    More or less that.

    Summary

    It's been a year since the case of my missing brother was solved - and things haven't gotten any easier.

    It was supposed to be a relaxing time. A vacation to a ritzy hotel with free food sounds great, right? In this golden dining room, filled to the brim with strange characters, I had hoped my only worries would be dealing with day-to-day life.

    But the thing is, I’m Luigi, and I’m not allowed to relax.

    Someone’s stolen a precious artifact from Wario and we’re all trapped here until someone can figure out who did it.

    It certainly won’t be me!

    Summary

    An alternate take on the original game. A reimagining, if you will. I felt that the original game's story was a mess with its nonsensical twists and turns, as well as other things. So this is a retelling of the original game's story, but with elements from DtR2 and Retribution thrown in, as well as the comic book tie-in. I am also balancing things.

    Grant City cop Jack Slate sets out to find who killed his father, but is then framed for murder. He sets out to look for the people who did it. Are things what they seem?

Everyone has a secret. Everyone could have a motive. And if the case isn't solved, an innocent man might get the axe.

    Summary

    "If anyone ever asked the overly ambitious Manuel C. Calavera why he purchased the crumbling, derelict, pre-calamity building which resided at number 118 Bulevar Maravilla in Havana, Cuba, he would just laugh and say, 'It has good bones.'"

    In a world where a calamitous clash between warring deities has caused an apocalyptic "reset" in the reincarnation cycle, a now-living Manny Calavera is haunted by memories of a past life and death which no one else shares, and a powerful, secret supernatural "Touch" which threatens to drag his new life--and everyone else in it--into ruin. The consequences of a selfish and impulsive decision have invited tragedy and danger to Manny's doorstep, and now a debonair international spy investigating his involvement in the mystery is the only person that stands between Manny and the precipice of disaster.
