    Summary

    “That's my mother's handwriting on the back,” [Oswald] said. “Did she give this to you at the station?”

    “The day she turned up looking for you,” Edward said, eyes drifting from the photo to Oswald.

     “Why was this under your bed?” Oswald asked, his exhausted amusement scarcely contained.

    Summary

    “Holy crap,” Bullock blurted, staring in glaze-eyed disbelief over Allen's shoulder.

    “Hello,” Oswald said, enjoying the assembly's consternation. “I am Oswald Cobblepot.”

    “You son of a bitch,” Bullock muttered, making a move toward Gordon. “You son of a—”

    “Harvey,” said Jim, his voice low with warning as colleagues stepped in to restrain them both.

    “You owe me an escort after all this trouble, Jim,” Oswald said primly. “Wouldn't you agree?”

    “I'm not sure I understand,” Jim replied, looking Oswald up and down. “You're walking fine.”

    Summary

    Edward climbed onto the bed and settled beside him, taking an eager bite of stew. “Do you mean it?”

    “Do I mean what?” Oswald asked, digging in. He'd missed his mother's cooking so much he could cry.

    “That you won't, you know,” Edward said pensively, pushing his food around, “sleep with just anyone.”

    Summary

    “You are private investigator by moonlight?” [Gertrud] quipped, her accent thickening with laughter.

    “I’d moonlight as one if I had the time,” Edward replied. “For now, I need part-time practice.”

    “Fair,” Gertrud said, straightening her spine as she rose from the chair, "but I cannot pay you.”

    “Payment’s in the pursuit,” said Edward, reassuringly. “Should we go somewhere else to talk?”

    Summary

    "I'm so sorry I was late," Ed said hurriedly, "I had to stay late at work--very complicated triple homicide. I'll tell you about it if you like, you might find some of the details amusing." He smiled nervously, and Oswald's heart almost skipped a beat when he saw the beautiful bouquet of flowers hidden poorly behind his back.

    Without thinking, he grinned back at him. Even if nearly no one showed up for his grand opening, his mother was becoming a bit of a handful, and he had waited for what felt like an eternity thinking Ed wasn't even going to show up...it was all worth it.

    Summary

    Edward rested his sticky cheek against Oswald's hip, sated. “I could sleep a little longer,” he said, “but since we only have seven days, we should...make the proper sacrifices. Visits...to.”

    “To?” Oswald asked, flopping back against the pillows, massaging Edward's scalp until he felt like mush.

    “Many cultures extol the virtues of appealing to one's beloved dead for success,” Edward replied lazily.

    “You just want an excuse to complain to my mother,” Oswald concluded, continuing to pet his hair.

    “For the club, Oswald,” Edward clarified, shamelessly relaxed. “We should leave flowers.”

    [Follows closely from themes in WYFIR, LON, and the last few DDO ficlets, Ghost Stories especially—but can be read as a stand-alone ghost story.]

    Summary

    “Let me see it,” Fish ordered, stepping closer to him, holding out her hand. “Your fabled knife.”

    Edward took it out of his pocket without blinking, flicking the blade open an inch from her eye.

    [Can be read as a stand-alone, but falls right in this sequence. For Day 2: Crossover/AU of Nygmobblepot Week.]

    Summary

    Edward swallowed hard, eyeing Bullock up and down. “But who's going to help? She's so...loud.”

    “Maybe you oughta make yourself useful,” Bullock suggested, shoving past him. “Calm her down.”

    [Readable as stand-alone or part of DDO/WYFIR 'Verse; set pre-canon. I blame this comment-thread brainstorming.]
