    Summary

    Ooo is a land of magic. Nearly one thousand and thirty-seven years after the devastating Mushroom War set civilization back to the Stone Age and unleashed hell on Earth, and exactly seven years after another war, set to be even more devastating, was narrowly averted, the world seems to be at peace. All is not perfect, but it's pretty mathing good. The heroes of the Gum War have all moved on. In nine hundred and seventy years, their story will be told anew, to a pair of wasteland scamps thriving in a post-apocalypse of their own. But this is not that story. Not yet, at least.

    For now, this is the story of a little girl — an orphan of twelve years who wanted nothing more than to be a hero — and her best friend, and how this child who dreamed of adventure would find both it and a family in the last place they'd expect: a castle.

    Summary

    Yungmeng City is a place known for violence, that reputation rivaled only by the rumor that most of its criminal activity is funded directly by its government. Jiang Cheng is the fallen son of the Yungmeng Clan, a crime syndicate that has had its fingers in all parts of the city for years. Someone has tried to frame him for the death of his brother - Wei Wuxian - and he has made the tricky decision to get out from underneath Yungmeng's thumb. But his mother has other plans for him, and when she winds up dead, he runs into Lan Xichen again. Lan Xichen is the city's nicest cop, and even though Jiang Cheng sees very little good in himself, Lan Xichen sees something in him he deems worth saving.

    Summary

    “What’s your name?” Steve tries, his grip on Bucky’s throat loosening and even turning into a gentle stroke like Bucky needs to swallow something. Bucky couldn’t agree more. Bucky is going to tell him—he is. He’s resolved to give up the ruse: admit that despite his upbringing in the R-12, he speaks City just fine. That the drugs he’s just tongue fed a stranger in a club are stolen from Alexander Pierce’s private stash and Bucky has no idea what they are about to do. There’s just something about Steve that compels Bucky to press against him and speak. Something about the way Steve’s eyes shine brighter than the ultraviolet LED strips lining the floor that makes Steve seem both other-worldly and solid. Under the full spectrum of light, the crisp trim of his beard is almost too precise and the blonde in his hair bleaches white. Bucky’s whole world narrows—throbs.

    The stranger—Steve—is just the kind of wholesome and wholesale danger that Bucky lives for.

    Summary

    It's 1993 and the Stand users from the Dio incident are still scattered and in hiding. New York City is a big place, with lots of people, and its own group of Stand users. The only problem: where there are Stand users, there are usually Stand battles. The women of Informer Co. do their best to deal with all of the supernatural happenings in the area without hurting the general public. They're a small group, but they're willing to work as a team (most of the time).

    It's Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, just without a Jojo, and with lots more ladies. Yes, it will be ridiculous. No, we will not apologize.

    Summary

    Decided one day to write the same intro but in three different genres. I liked them all, even took a pole on Twitter to see which I should continue, however it ended up a threeway tie so it went nowhere.
    Feel free to comment if you'd like to see more of any of them, though the Noir Bar is the original and has some content already.
    Please enjoy.

    Summary

    Ignis does not take corporate cases as a matter of principle, and keeps well away from dealings in Insomnia's business and financial district. Background checks and cheating spouses are less complex, less interwoven in the fabric of Insomnia's high society, less fatal to people involved. But Noct is leaning forward slightly in his chair, fingers intertwined and resting on the edge of Ignis' desk, beautiful eyes intent beneath the soft fall of his hair. He has offered to pay very well. Work has been thin on the ground as of late.

    And something in Ignis wants to see this man again.

    Summary

    Daenerys Targaryen is a Private Investigator. Jon Snow is, well, a slightly different Jon Snow. You'll need to read to find out the rest. AH/AU.

    "The lust and attraction are often a given in a romance novel. I want to dig into the elements of true friendship that form a foundation for a solid, gonna-last-forever romantic relationship." - Suzanne Brockmann

    (A quick test to find out if this story is for you: “Who would you rather be? The pretty princess who waits for her knight in shining armor to save her; or the warrior woman who goes to slay the dragon?” If your answer is the latter, you’re in the right place.)
