    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. 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?

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian and Lan Wangji are disgustingly in love and happily cohabitating six months after the events of "Pearls for a Funeral". But a vindictive power will not let them rest. Trouble is brewing at work for Detective Jiang Cheng, and just in time to create all kinds of problems for his sister's wedding (not to mention the invitation list!). A mysterious letter starts off a non-stop, wild, noir ride which takes our heroes from the foggy climes of San Francisco to the verdant hills of Napa Valley. Can Wangxian once again prevail over the powers of darkness and save their love as well as each other? I don't know, I don't know, I really don't know.

    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.

    The echo after the gun blast--that shaking in your ribs, screaming in your ears, the trill of your heart in your throat. Sometimes coming down from battle is worse than the fight itself.

    Summary

    The Krogans say that the only stories worth telling are those of love, sex, and war. Remix of the canon with OC and AU spanning ME1-3.

    Featuring an original past of a ‘survivor’ female Shepard as a drala'fa ('the ignored') from Omega. Once a druglord's slave, Jane met a strange drell one evening that changed her life. After enlisting in the Alliance and burying her past, Jane gained a reputation as a closed-off, mysterious paragade with secrets stemming from her checkered past, now struggling with changes from her visions caused by touching the beacon on Eden Prime. Her affinity for aliens, and one turian in particular, becomes a problem among human-centric politicians as humanity gains a foothold in the galaxy.

    The story explores multiple tones and motifs, including a deeper look at Drell beliefs, a character study of Thane, noir loss of innocence story for Garrus concerning his metamorphosis into Archangel, and a closer read of Liara's transformation into the Shadowbroker. Includes slips into the surreal with an emphasis on original expanded lore, symbolism, belief systems, language, and culture within the Mass Effect Universe.

    Summary

    The New Barovia Noir AU you did not know you need in your life... until you realized just how perfect all the desperation, darkness and Gothic horror will translate into a Noir film.

    Set in some misty lands, somewhere in our modern times. The dark streets of New Barovia are just as unforgiving as their medieval counterparts; ominous shadows are lurking in the dark alleys, sweet voices are promising pleasure and power, every sin for your money, stranger. But do not listen to them or you will find yourself selling your own children or your very soul for just a few grains of the Dark Gifts — the new drug in town, the one that promises fulfillment of your every wish...

    Tags, characters and rating will be successively updated for future chapters. Created with our PCs in mind, some chapters will follow their adventures, while the others will focus exclusively on the NPCs.

    Summary

    Hatchetfield, 1946

    After the Second World War has come to an end, the citizens of Hatchetfield move on in life, blissful in the presence of music and life and laughter.
    But when a major executive of a manufacturing company is found dead on the beach, murder most foul becomes the towns biggest story.
    Enter Paul Matthews, a mild-mannered reporter for the Hatchetfield Gazette who gets stuck with the story.
    In the wake of red-herrings, riots, and a trail of deaths that seems to lead to one killer, can Paul, with the help of the spunky barmaid, Emma, stop the killing?

    Basically, I got impatient and wrote a Noir Paulkins AU in the middle of writing Until it Sleeps, in spite of having a bunch of other WIP’s I need to finish

    Really hope you guys enjoy!!!
