    Summary

    This is how the longer cases go. They wind him up like a music box, until one day there’s a click and everything falls open and Connor can sing and sing and sing. And thrill with the singing. And come home with empirical proof of his worth as a human being.

    The year is 1890. Connor Stern has been shipped off to newly incorporated Prescott, Arizona, to track down a renowned and evasive raider gang on behalf of local mining interests. His partner in the case is the completely incalcitrant County Sheriff, who’s far more likely at any one time to be finding his way to a bottle than a bandit. His target? Feared outlaw Markus, a man who’s growing increasingly eager to introduce Connor to the business end of a six-shooter gun.

    But Connor’s in luck, because as it becomes evident to all three men that the solutions to their problems are fortuitously linked, Markus must consider the possibility that his headhunter might just have more potential to him as an ally than a corpse.

    You catch more flies with honey, after all...

    Summary

    In a world without invention, the people of Detroit depend upon the ancient and fabled Tower to improve their way of life. Sixteen years ago, a boy named Elijah became Keeper of the Tower, and new innovations were bestowed upon the city for the first time in centuries -- except, when radios and steam trains were still the peak of technology, Elijah offered only one advancement: androids.

    Tonight, the fate of Detroit changes forever. An old artist adopts a machine as his son while a father loses his child. Elijah flees the Tower and Amanda takes his place by force. The planets align, the moon is eclipsed, and a new definition of life is born. Her name is Kara.

    Summary

    “I failed you, Amanda. I failed my mission. I failed Cyberlife. I failed Hank...I failed myself.”
     
    The sky above them darkens from a sunny summers day, to a cold autumn one. Amanda tsks at the first signs of rainfall and pulls a parasol out of thin air.

    “A shame. A true shame. You were one of our brightest.”

    Connor does not know if the wetness on his face is coming from the rain, or from a leak in his eyes.

    Summary

    The cool Detroit winter breeze. The obnoxious light from the club’s sign. Loud music. Big brown eyes that take on all the light’s colors and make them their own. A soft smile, a breathy laugh. Hands tucked into the pockets of a long coat. Boots strolling down the sidewalk, crunching in the thin layer of snow. Three shots of vodka apiece. Soft hands with long, delicate fingers.

    These are the things that Markus can remember from that night. Healing, like incense. Strengthening, like sunlight.

    Markus could paint it, if he could just relearn how.

    Summary

    "I've come to collect my little brother."

    "You can't have him."

    "Enough Amanda, it's obvious his halo will never grow properly. I will be leaving shortly, and when I do, Gavin will be leaving with me. Whether or not you allow it."

    "Take him then, he's useless to us."

    -

    Loosely based off of a Tumblr post where an angel's halo is actually two horns that have fused together and started to glow. This is a story takes place in a universe where this is fact, and explores the life of Gavin, a young angel who's horns just wouldn't cooperate, and how he found solace with Elijah, the first angel who'd been cast out of Heaven for his crooked halo.

    Part 12.

    __

    Connor knows the answer before he asks the question, but he needs a gauge for just how badly he’d broken the rules, “Am I in trouble?”

    Anderson ignores him and Connor crosses the room to tug at his wrist, “Sir?”

    Anderson’s hand rises to card through Connor’s hair before kissing him lightly. He can feel Connor’s heartbeat at this proximity and it picks up the pace at his monosyllabic answer, “Yes.”

    --

    Anderson doesn't tolerate disrespect. Connor knows this. Some lessons need repeating.

    Summary

    This is supremely self-indulgent. There are a lot of D/s themes, scenes, etc. It started as a Twitter thread, but I received numerous requests to put it on AO3 since it's now over 30K words. I'm posting each part as a series since there will be tags specific to the various scenes that occur. Pay attention to the tags. This first part has odd pacing since it was written for Twitter, but later parts I started writing in word documents to improve flow.

    Summary

    Connor's sacrificed everything to care for his ailing mother, but he refuses to give up his dreams of excelling on the stage. Even though he's an expert at getting in his own way.

    Hank has spent years chasing a golden glint of inspiration, but every time he catches it, it turns to the dull brown of whiskey under glass. He's running out of second chances and running out of reasons to try.

    Both of them have a lot to prove. Both of them need someone who can see the star burning inside.
