    Summary

    “Let me see if I’ve got it straight,” said Shadow. “So Abraham leaves, nine thousand dollars the richer, and in the parking lot by the train station he and Barrington meet up. They split the money, get into Barrington’s Model A Ford, and head for the next town. I guess in the trunk of that car they must have a box filled with hundred-dollar violins.”
    “I personally made it a point of honor never to pay more than five dollars for any of them,” said Wednesday.
    - Neil Gaiman, American Gods

    If there's anything Boyd can do well, it's play a fiddle and charm the pants off of anyone he meets. Ned wishes he could say the same about himself. In a diner in Atlanta, Georgia, the two partners in crime do their best to pull a fiddle grift, and it doesn't quite go the way either of them expect.

    Canon-compliant with The Moth Who Came In From The Cold.

    Summary

    " “What do you mean?!” Aubrey cries, throwing herself at Duck and covering him with her arms. “How can you not have watched Ghibli films? God, how have you survived?”

    “My parents were very Catholic and very racist,” Duck reminds her.

    Aubrey winces. “Yep, that would do it.” Her nose scrunches up, almost as if she’s disgusted just by imagining it. “How did you turn out like this?”

    “Rebel teen syndrome?” Duck jokes."/
    A story in which Duck is a very tired middle aged trans guy, and learns that being happy (and not just okay) is worth it./

    "Duck meets Ned Chicane in the back of an Arby’s parking lot, where all great friendships are born."

    Or: Susie plays Calvinball with Death.
