    Summary

    Sweeney sighed. “Wednesday wanted your man for a job. The kind of job that takes a lot of commitment. You were an obstacle, he wanted you killed. I convinced him that it was better if - well, with enough humiliation, your man there really wouldn’t be hankering after getting back with you. Plus, it was a test of his mettle. If he could handle the news that his wife and friend were caught cheating by the fire department, the cops, all the rubberneckers on the highway, and the local paper, and put up with the shit from his prison buddies without hauling off and getting himself another three years, then he was the perfect man for the job.”

    Plus he’d figured she’d top herself and save them all the trouble. He’d seen the business with the hot tub.

    (What if Wednesday hadn't had Laura killed? And then what if he changed his mind?)

    Summary

    Mad Sweeney goes to therapy. Featuring God!Freud, because the way I read the lore, if people believe in it hard enough, there comes a god, right? And they sure do believe in old Sigmund. Sweeney? Not so much.

    Summary

    It was stupid, and probably wouldn’t work, Shadow had thought to himself as he sat on the rickety chair in his crappy apartment and stared at the cracked open window with the bowl of cream just sitting there.

    He was three weeks out of prison, two weeks since he found out Laura was cheating on him with his best friend, and one week in a shitty apartment, on the shitty sound of town, with shitty furniture and shitty job prospects.

    Shadow Moon justs want to live a life of anonymity after serving his three-year sentence in prison for robbing a bank at his wife's insistence but that changes when he finds out Laura cheated on him with his best friend. Now he's just trying to live day by day. Then the leprechaun showed up.

    Summary

    When Wednesday books an actual hotel room Shadow uses it as an opportunity to do something he never really had a chance to do. Take a bubble bath.

    Summary

    (FR Fanfiction)
    Une pensée la hantait de plus en plus, chaque jour. Si seulement elle avait eu le courage, si seulement elle avait su se défendre, si seulement elle n'avait pas quitté ce bar si tard ce jour-là...
    Se serait-elle tout de même retrouvée au beau milieu d'une guerre violente et sanguinaire entre Dieux ? Aurait-elle rencontré cet homme aux cheveux de feu, le regard brillant de malice avec ces pièces en or qu'il faisait apparaître et disparaître à sa guise ?
    Elle avait déjà tellement de soucis en ce moment, sa maladie reprenant souvent le dessus ces derniers jours suite au décès de son jeune frère. Ces pensées noires et ces envies de solitudes qui prenaient le dessus. Et que dire de ces angoisses nocturnes qui l'empêchaient de dormir ?

    Summary

    It is impossible to forget the first time he saw him.
    The first time he looked after him and saw these dark, kind eyes looking at Odin suspiciously, but still too fucking trusting.
    There was somethingh about him that immediately went under Seeny's skin.
    Not love at first sight, mind you, there was no such shit as love at first sight.
    But there definitely was something about him, about this poor fool that soon would be just another pawn in Odin's game.

    Summary

    She moved through death like she had moved through life: Believing in nothing, avoiding the truth.

    That was, until, she was faced with a truth that she couldn't avoid, and death, unlike life, took on a new meaning.

    Will Laura Moon finally choose the right path?

    Summary

    Mad Sweeney could not recall the last true believer he had. Sure, he’d been brought over as one of the Fair Folk, but it was different. A sliver of the truth, a dim shadow of what he was really owed. The belief of someone who followed traditions, not him.

    That changed when he arrived in Cairo.

    That changed when he laid eyes on you and he found that one didn’t have to believe in the myth to believe in the man.

    Summary

    Суини и в самом деле был высок. Его взгляд был ясен и зол, как блеск клинка. Он накинулся на Чарльза сразу, будто осатанев, но Чарльз ловко уходил от самых тяжёлых ударов, а более лёгкие блокировал. Первый раунд он держался хорошо. Во втором раунде бой стал жестче, и публика постепенно теряла сдержанность: джентльмены начали ругаться, как моряки, леди визжать, как шлюхи, а с галерки, где сгрудилась белая и цветная беднота, неслись громкие проклятия и крики поддержки:

    — Одинокий Волк!

    — Безумный Суини!

    Summary

    В то утро на горе Артур умер. Умер по-настоящему, не только телом, но и сердцем и душой, раскаиваясь во всём, что совершил, сломленный болезнью и предательством Датча, не желая ничего, кроме покоя. Но как раз покоя он и не получает. Неведомая сила возвращает его обратно в мир живых. И его воскрешение — лишь малая часть того безумия, которое постепенно просачивается в реальность.
