    Summary

    Him. 2D. I could see him even now, his goofy grin while holding the water gun like a hunting rifle, lining me down the sight. His hands ruffling my hair, one eye closed in a squint as if sizing me up, as if looking into the sun.

    ------------------------------

    The year is 2003. Five months have passed since Gorillaz ended things terribly in a rented Hollywood Hills mansion after their movie deal was dropped. 2D is working at his fathers funfair in Eastbourne, collecting ticket stubs when he's not out prowling the streets with newfound friends to find the next lucky lady he'll leave lonely after a one night stand.
    For Sloane McLeod, Tusspot Fairground is a chance for her and her brother Lou to start over after a run-in with the law back at home. Her plan is to lay low and turn up for work on time. Lou's the one who'll cover the wheeling and dealings, she's just gotta make sure she's around to keep him out of trouble, meaning no distractions. Especially not blue haired ones that come with black eyes and an adorably gap-toothed smile.

    Summary

    None of them heard a goddamn thing, except for Leo. 'Course he did. Apparently being blind had given him echolocation or magic powers or something.

    Set in a future in which the Foot took over the East Coast for over a decade. The three surviving turtles have finally killed Shredder, but remain bitter, jaded, scarred, and more than a little distrusting of humanity. Lots of hurt/comfort/psychology. Involves a baby.

    Summary

    Katya hated home. She hated how her pantry never had anything on the shelves, how easily screams and bottle shattering echoed through the narrow halls, and how few places there were to hide when things got scary. In fact, the only thing she didn't hate, was how close it was to her best friend, Trixie. Katya trusted Trixie more than anyone else in the word, and Trixie loved that Katya was the one person she could truly be herself with. The two had been inseparable for as long as they could remember, but they were starting to realize that the older they got, the more complicated things were going to be.

    Summary

    "'Death did not hold the name then that he holds now.'"

    In Mip's most notorious life prison, Death appears in a strange disguise.

    It had seemed for a while that the plan would work: a bold conspiracy by a group of idealistic prisoners and sympathetic guards to stop abuse at Mercy Prison. Then betrayal occurs, and Tyrrell finds himself in a new life prison, with new rules to be learned. No longer is he in a position of leadership; now he is surrounded by men who question his most fundamental values.

    He has new allies as well: fellow prisoners who like what they see in him, a healer who refuses to accept current conditions, and guards who may or may not provide the help that the prisoners desperately need. But Hell's messenger, Death, visits Compassion Prison, keeping his face hidden until it is almost too late for Tyrrell to recognize his touch.

    Boilerplate warning for all my stories.

    Summary

    A town by the shore, where the salty breeze blooms wildflowers and the mountains stand tall behind them. A town unlike any other, where its people lived with virtually no worry, where everyone was safe and well-pleased. The perfect society. A utopia.

    Or so they thought.

    The youth doesn't know, but one day they will, and it will destroy everything.

    Summary

    The ship rocked uneasily at the harbour. Sounds of crashing waves from oceans long passed fumbled into ears of passersby who would end up paying no mind to it in the end. With unsettled footing, the passengers of the ship began to exit the deck. People would emerge from their chambers, rubbing their eyes of exhaustion in their messy morning clothes only to re-enter, changing into marvelous gowns and fantastic suits.

    The quite obvious differences in societal status made Daniel feel as though he were an outlier, more so than he presumed himself to be when he had hastily boarded the ship only moments before it detached from harbours long passed.
