    Summary

    What happens when good collides with evil? The day Benoit Blanc unraveled the mystery forged a destiny between the two entwined in it. It was nothing magical, but both knew they weren't going to escape this spell.

    *Really, I just can't get these 2 out of my head since I saw the movie. This is a dark and twisted romance, which I will add tags and updates for as it unravels, but for now I wanted to test the waters to see if anyone might be interested in what's rattling around in my head.

    There will likely be spoilers for the movie, so don't read if you haven't seen.

    Summary

    Alana reaches for his wrist and he flinches before she guides his hand up to the space just below her chin. Like a reflex, his fingers creep toward the back of her neck until his palm is pressing into the front, fingers into the sides, and she finds herself trying a bit harder to breathe.
    “Convince me,” she whispers. Ransom tips his head.
    “Y’know, if my mom hadn’t called…” he sighs, “...I would’ve had you then. Right over there, up against that wall.” She swallows roughly and he smiles slyly in response.
    Shit.

    ---
    Ransom Drysdale is a man who always gets what he wants.
    On the surface, he's a trustfund playboy, letting his grandfather's massive book sales fund his expensive, careless lifestyle.
    Under the surface, however, lies a different story: one rather complex and convoluted, one that trips up anyone that tries to understand him.

    Summary

    Ransom and Olivia have been thorns in each other’s sides for fifteen years. They’ve tolerated one another, coaxed each other through major milestones, and trampled on one another’s hearts.

Their son is out of control, and the one person with the best chance of getting through to him wants absolutely nothing to do with the man.

    Summary

    Ransom reads something that will change his life, that will change him in ways that even his fundamental reversal of fortune had not. He begins scowling. Two pages in and he’s scoffing. Rodney waits him out. This is not the most impossible thing he has done for his employer within the week.

    Rodney knows exactly what page he’s on when he barks a laugh into the receiver, cradled in the crook of his shoulder. His body looks relaxed, but his mouth is strange. Tense, on a smile. 

    “Seriously?” 

    “Very.” Rodney said. To be honest, he was shocked himself. Miss Cabrera was lovely, and this proposition was unusual. Had anyone else had him write it, he might have called it cruel.

    Not her though. Anyone could tell from her eyes how kind she was.

    But, something about her threw him for a loop.

    Aida was something he knew he wanted.

    Summary

    It seems horribly fitting that when Marta’s soulbond arrives, it’s in the most absurdly ridiculous, horrible way imaginable. It involves the Thrombeys, so of course something that should be wonderful just ends up being terrible in the end.

    Summary

    Ransom sat in the beamer, the harsh head lights barely penetrating the enclosing darkness around the car, around him. His arms vibrated with the urge to swerve the car around and drive back to the house but something stopped him. Marta’s dark, soulful eyes in his head.
    He needed another plan, some other way to secure his fortune. He grinned...instead of breaking a heart, he could win it.
