    Summary

    “What, no mockery?” Rafael asked, the tips of his ears burning red as he fumbled to return his phone to his pocket. “No snide comment about flirting with the NYPD equivalent of the pool boy?”

    Rita chose her words very, very carefully.

    “I mean, we’ve all been there,” she said blithely with an easy, unconcerned shrug. “And the NYPD equivalent of the pool boy is fine for a temporary distraction.” She paused and took a calculated sip of her martini. “But it’s not as if you’re planning anything long-term with him. After all, it wouldn’t be right.”

    Rafael frowned. “What do you mean?” he asked warily.

    Rita gave him her best, most condescending look. “Rafael, you’re a Harvard-educated lawyer who could have your pick of law firms if you’d just get off your moral high horse,” she said with patronizing patience. “Harvard-educated lawyers don’t date cops who graduated from, what, community college?”

    Summary

    His work rarely got the recognition it deserved since most people, especially those who were wealthy and arrogant, didn’t like to brag about the fact that they’d been burgled. But thanks to Rita Calhoun, who loved to antagonize everyone, including the police who were trying to help her, Rafael had his first bit of press in quite some time.

    He would have to cut out the article and add it to the scrapbook.

    It was with more enjoyment than necessary that he read the short article detailing the theft and NYPD’s ineptitude, but when he got to the name of the detective in charge of the case he paused, finding himself curious. Picking up his phone from where it rested next to his coffee cup, he did a quick search for Detective Sonny Carisi.

    Summary

    "There's just no point trying to corrupt human souls in Manhattan," Rafael complained to the closest thing he had to a friend, an angel he’d had a run in with over the centuries currently operating under the name Rita Calhoun.

    Rita was currently masquerading as a defense attorney; Barba's assignment was being an Assistant District Attorney.

    You might expect their positions to be reversed, for a demon to be in charge of defending the worst monsters humanity had to offer while an angel would be the one to send them to what sentence they deserved.

    You'd be wrong.

    Rita was the one in the business of redemption, after all.

    Rafael was more about punishment, of both the earthly and hellish variety.

    Summary

    “Hey, Barba,” Sonny called over the sound of his own fryer crackling, “I think they’re having all the fun.”

    Rita picked her head up, more than interested in the slight show of surprise that passed over Rafael’s expression. No one spoke to Rafael in these challenges and even if they did, he never answered. It was with the utmost amusement that she watched as Rafael looked back over his shoulders, let his eyes rest on the rookie greasy spoon cook for far longer than was necessary - even by television standards.

    “If you say so.”

    The words were delivered in a snide tone but Rafael’s lingering gaze didn’t lie.

    Summary

    Noir premise, obviously.

    Rafael Barba is a defense attorney on retainer for Mayor Alex Muñoz and his associates. Olivia Benson is the PI investigating the Mayor's office. She used to be a cop until she got kicked off the force, but despite widespread police corruption her squad is still loyal to her. She's got a decent rapport with ADA Dominick Carisi, too. As Benson forms an uneasy alliance with Barba, things start to get messy.

    Of the three fics in this series, this was the furthest along. I'm sad that there's almost no chance I'll ever finish it -- thanks for breaking my heart, canon -- but happy to share what I do have.

    I spent 30 minutes agonizing over a title before I decided that it doesn't matter.
