    Summary

    V, from the world of opulence and corporate greed, believes she knows how to play the game. Make those above her bow down. Johnny, well aware of what making a deal with corps is like, warns her against taking Hanako's offer to no avail. Trapped in orbit, losing her sanity, only able to communicate with Johnny in her dreams, she needs to leave, but the layers of hurt, the drugs pumped into her by Arasaka, and her dwindling sense of self make this a far more difficult task than it should be.

    Summary

    Aidan was born to a brutal Nomad family; a pariah within the clan ever since she lost her hearing. Slight after slight, tragedy after tragedy and eventually she could take no more. She ran from the only family she'd known and sought to start anew. And in Night City, of all places, she found her slice of happiness. Not in it's grubby crime filled streets or her shoebox apartment, but in the company of the people she loves. For a moment, the sun peeked through the darkness as her new life began to take shape under its light. But a heist gone wrong threatens to destroy everything she's fought for and she's not sure how much fight she has left in her. Will she ever feel the sun again?

    Summary

    V enters Mikoshi, but she does not exit.

    Johnny is running out of time to find her. The moment he offhandedly commented on the fate of every runner being that they would fry themselves in their own chair was weighing on him heavily every day. Particularly now that two of the best Netrunners he has ever known are unreachable beyond the Blackwall, and trying to find V is like searching for a digitised needle in a virtual haystack.

    He was not wrong, every Netrunner eventually took it too far, burned too bright, and then they were gone. Even Alt.

    But this time, he needed to be wrong about V.

    Summary

    That was the closest they ever came to talking about it: sitting in the Hella, smoking a joint with the radio on. V remembered him in profile, wreathed in a haze of smoke, his nose as aquiline as in youth. “You seeing anyone?” Light flickered behind Jackie’s cupped hand.

    A sly, sideways look, meeting his gaze defiantly for four, five, six thundering heartbeats—and then V looked away because he felt too much in his chest. He constructed the architecture of a dozen potential conversations, all of them lost before they gained trajectory.

    ———

    On wanting, and hurt, and healing. An exploration of V’s mourning for Jackie, his friendship with Johnny, and his eventual relationship with Kerry.

    Summary

    Takemura had no one in Night City. He was hunted, and he was alone.

    He was also exhausted.

    V grew up on the streets of Night City, and knew all too well what it was like to try and survive in the urban wasteland. All Takemura needed was a friend, and she could do that.

    The best thing about small acts of kindness? Sometimes they gained momentum, and turned into something amazing.

    Summary

    V is dying, she knows it, Johnny is a constant reminder and yet she doesn't seem to care. Yes, she is trying to find a way to survive, but she also wouldn't mind if a car run her over one day. Apparently Night City only gives two options, die as a nobody or live long in history as a legend. V's mind is a mess and she doesn't know what she wants but hopefully getting to know a certain badge will clear her thoughts a little bit before meeting her fate.

    Summary

    Memories flow through him, warm smiles, a young girl laughing, the sound of an engine, excitement, curiosity, wonder. Running on a beach, once, the salty smell of water, the grains of sand between his toes. Waves crashing lazily on the shore in a slow rhythm, the warm light of the sun carressing his face, and then slapping him hard, red skin, burning and frustration, his features feeling tight and dry, cells flaking off his forehead, a cold, wet towel patting his face and soft hands applying lotion.

    It's faded and blurry but it's his, his memory to treasure and cherish and showcase in glass. He hasn't thought about it in years, since before everything, before Jackie, before things got out of control and Night City swallowed him whole.

    “Wanna go to the beach,” he says without opening his eyes. “Swim in the ocean.”

    Summary

    Because the Herculean burden of being human can’t be satisfied with being anything but the most heart-wrenching experience of your life. It demands empathy without any reward, forgiveness without any justice. Being human requires you to chug along and drive onwards, even when everything you are is screaming to stay behind. Being human means not only being able to accept change, but not fearing it, either.

    And “human” is something Johnny Silverhand is decidedly not. Not in a straightforward sense, at least.

    But if V can’t accept change, what does that make her?

    Summary

    [SEQUEL TO FEEDBACK LOOP]

    “Less talk, shitheel,” Johnny growls. “You’re gonna shut the fuck up and help me get V back.”

    Takemura’s eyes lock to Johnny, filled with hate, grief and anger spilling from every pore of his body as he hisses through his teeth. “What makes you think that I would even consider helping you?” He asks. “Either of you? V betrayed me, and you led her to that ruin--”

    “V made her own mind up, old man,” he snaps, pushing harder.

    “You are older than me."

    --------

    Johnny has found himself in V's body, and being stubborn as a mule, decides to fuck around and fix things with the help of those she helped during their time together. It's going to take a village to raise a legend from beyond the Blackwall -- and that includes Takemura.

    As for V -- she's found herself... somewhere. And while she doesn't remember how she got here, she knows something's wrong. She's meant to be... somewhere else. She's meant to be with someone. She can't remember, though. Why can't she remember?

    [You will need to have at least skimmed Feedback Loop to understand this fic.]

    Summary

    “Two job offers in one day hermana, I guess Night City might learn our names after all!” Jackie grabbed the bottle and poured two shots with practiced ease, handing one to V. “To getting filthy stinkin’ rich with the best buddy in all NC, cheers chica!” Their glasses clinked and she knocked back the warm liquid, feeling the burn in her throat as it travelled downwards. A pleasant warmth accompanied it, piercing through the cloud of dreariness that had persistently hung over her day thus far. Perhaps this was the break they needed since the move.
    -.-
    AU: V is a rising star in the BD industry looking for her big break. She and Jackie move to Kabuki for a fresh start and through a series of events meet Judy and the girls at Lizzie’s bar, one of the most popular up-and-coming BD clubs in Night City. But tensions are high and dangers lurk just around the corner. V and Judy endgame.

    Summary

    V was born on the streets of Night City, and unless she does something about it, she'll die there - a nobody, forgotten by the world as if she never existed.
    With her adopted brother and best friend, Jackie, they will take on the world and fight to become legends, forever immortalized in the memories of the people like Johnny Silverhand and Adam Jensin. But it's a long, uphill battle, and they aren't the only once scrabbling for glory.
    When the top fixer in town takes an interest in them, the path to success seems certain, until a job goes sour and a biochip finds it's way into V's brain, bringing with it an unwanted passenger.

    Marcus fought tooth and nail for his position at Arasaka. There was no price he wouldn't pay to get to the top. It's nature's purest law, survival of the fittest. But how long can he hold out in this world where everyone's out to stab you in the back, and the smallest mistake can lose you everything?

    Dodger's clan is no more, and a nomad without a clan is less than nothing. An outsider among outsiders. So she makes her way to Night City, the City of Dreams, and maybe she can make a new family there without giving up her freedom.

    (*Note: changed Lex to Dodger)
