    Summary

    The look she gave me could have chilled a man — or laid him out on a morgue slab. “My father died three weeks ago; he left the clan and his seat on the High Table to me. With that seat comes certain responsibilities.”

    “I’m retired,” I said.

    “You were retired,” she said. “And while you were content to play house, or to drink yourself to death, or to drive around in your car wasting away — you were not my concern. But you chose to return to the board.”

    “Get out of my house,” I said.

    Gianna ignored me. “I do not want to be here, John. I came to call in a favor.”

    Summary

    Bored and in need of a vacation, Santino managed to whisk his dour new bodyguard away to Venice. He had convinced John pretty easily, so that was a plus. If he could convince the man to do other things, well, double plus.

    Set about fifteen years pre-canon, when John Wick worked for the D'Antonios.

    Summary

    The head of the Camorra, Santino D’Antonio, is known to have clever hands and a cleverer mind. In another life, he might have been a world-class thief, but in this one, he's the head of the Camorra and one of the stronger of the Twelve Families of the High Table, as slippery as a shadow in the dark and more vicious than any of the killers in his retinue. He's also more than a little insane, if rumor holds true to form. So when he shows up in Viggo's living room asking John to play a game, John agrees.

    And somehow, they never stop playing.

    AU in which: Santino was always head of the Camorra, Gianna is quite a bit younger, Gianna wants to steal the Camorra, and Gianna offers a Marker to John Wick to kill her brother (his lover) and uses a rather different proposition than the one made in canon.

    Summary

    Santino D'Antonio has spent his entire life controlled by the expectations of his family and the High Table. So it was no surprise to him that he was instantly drawn to a man like John Wick, one who defies all expectation.

    As he waits for John to track him down to the Continental, most likely to kill him, Santino decides to be honest for the first, and presumably last, time in his life.
