  3. Summary

    This series is a White Collar/Fallen London fusion co-written by Sholio and Frith-in-Thorns. Master lists sorted by both internal chronology and posting date are available at Frith's LJ. (The list below is ordered by internal chronology.)

    Fallen London (the game) is set in a Victorian-era alternate-history London sunk beneath the surface of the ground. And that's really all you need to know. Additional notes on pertinent game mechanics, plot, etc. are available in the notes for each story. Generally speaking the entire series is gen (with occasional hints of canon pairings: Peter/Elizabeth, Diana/Christie) but may occasionally be read in a P/E/N way as well.

    Three decades ago, London was stolen by bats. Dragged deep into the earth by the Echo Bazaar. The sun is gone. All we have is the gas-light of Mr Fires.

    But Londoners can get used to anything. And it's quiet down here with the devils and the darkness and the mushroom wine. Peaceful.

    So welcome. Delicious Friend.

    Summary

    Liu Sang can do this.

    He’s a professional, after all. That’s why the Iron Triangle brings him on these trips. He can map, and fight, and hold his own. Except now they've been separated from the others, and they're trapped, and Wu Xie's hurt, and their supplies are running low, and Liu Sang -

    Liu Sang can do this.

    He always has.

    Summary

    He ignores Wu Xie spluttering in the background and turns his attention back to Xiaoge, who is watching them both with fond amusement in his eyes.

    “Ignore him, Xiaoge. You’re a natural, just like I knew you would be. Hey, you never know, this might come in handy in a tomb some time.”

    Wu Xie snorts. “We had to dance our way out of a trap one time. What are the chances of that ever happening again?”

    Summary

    “I’ll cook your favourite,” Pangzi says. “I’m sick of the sight of hospital food, and I didn’t have to eat it. You need to be reminded what good food tastes like.”

    “Outside,” Xiaoge says.

    Wu Xie’s mouth twists into a sad smile. Of course Xiaoge wants to be outside. He was trapped underground for days, and has been in the hospital ever since. He hasn’t had any proper fresh air for weeks.

    Takes place after the events of Shaken

    Summary

    Wu Xie is fine, his lungs fixed by whatever happened in Thunder City. So when the hospital calls to ask if he'd undergo some tests against compensation to be used in scientific research, it's free money, right?
