    Summary

    Life in Menzoberranzan is hard. That’s how it always has been, how it always will be. Natasha long ago accepted that the life of a drow is to kill or be killed. When she survives an attempt on her life that forces her up to the World Above, she finds a new set of challenges—and a new set of allies, maybe even friends.
    Sam is forced to make a snap decision about the drow he’s been called in to deal with. Can a half-elf and a drow be allies? Friends? What will happen when he vouches for her?
    Steve lost his partner to a drow raid years before. He also trusts Sam almost more than he trusts himself, even when he shows up in town with a drow in tow.
    Can a drow, a half-elf, and a human work together to stop a drow plot and save the unknown human thrall caught up in the middle of it all?

The Irishman snarled as he tossed the letter into the bin next to his desk and got up to investigate what all the noise was about.

    Summary

    A perfect child, friend, and boyfriend by day, Ricky Goldsworth transforms into a meticulous, ruthless, serial killer at night. C.C. Tinsley is on his case with no evidence, no motive, and no suspects. The only thing he has to go on is the calling card left at every crime scene, a small gray pearl. Ricky's secret begins to bleed into his normal life, leaving friends and family with a lot of unanswered questions and Ricky with a detective on his tail. Basically a really slow burn with a serial killer Ricky and a detective Tinsley with a whole lot of storyline in between.

Dean, the librarian, the charmer, the badass, is doing just perfectly fine on his own thank you very much until he meets this angelic guy, the son of his favourite author. This guy seems chill enough, right? Nope, Cas tears at Dean's heart strings, taking control of his soul and tugging him any way he wants - willingly, mind you. Cas, 26, turns out to be a run away, got the hell out of dodge the moment he turned 18, leaving behind his alcoholic, drug abusing father and his remaining siblings, Micheal and Gabe, since Lucifer had already left for greater things. He finally gathers the courage to talk to this cranberry of a man he noticed three years ago at his father's book signing in the library, and finds Dean is not just looks and swagger.

    Summary

    In the year 1899, the Wild West is dying. The way of life that many have called their own or have lead on for generations is coming to an end. With the century about to turn, the golden age of gunslingers and the lawless lands of America is now tarnished and scrapped, and the dawn of newfound civility and society comes upon the horizon.

    Reading through your eyes as a self-determined woman coined "Wolf," you will see how your life as a devoted daughter trying to save your ailing father is about to completely change. After taking upon a major debt from a gang for which you cannot repay, your launderer Leopold Strauss sends his best collector, an outlaw by the name of Arthur Morgan, your way.

    As the foothold of Arthur's gang remaining as one of the most notorious and imposing posses fades like a setting sun, you will quickly find yourself amidst a dying way of life, all while you fight for the chance to start another with the man who believes he can never change.

    (set to start before the infamous Blackwater heist. number of chapters may be subject to change.)

    Summary

    "Unsurprisingly, Wolfram and Hart is a terrible place to work. The food in the canteen is awful (no tacos!), the hours are long, the clients are evil, and our staff are most likely plotting against us. But all of that pales in comparison to the undoubtedly, by far and away, no contest, worst thing about working here: Her. With a capital H. She's evil, annoying, grating, evil, not half as clever as she thinks she is, duplicitous, evil, and clingy. And the most evil, wicked individual I've ever met, no matter what act she puts on, and she's somehow fooled Wesley completely!"

    What if it wasn't Fred who someone at Wolfram and Hart found charming, but Wesley? And how would Fred react? (Poorly - very, very poorly)

He moves his fingers under her chin and makes her tilt her head up so that she has no choice but to meet his gaze. “Good thing you and Lupita’s daughter are such good friends.”
