  1. Summary

    It's kind of about fake dating and it's kind of about friendship and it's mostly about casual revelations that I spent time in Los Angeles, because that's my wheelhouse. Some day there will be a Sarchengsey installment, probably.

    The idea of Maura Sargent: mother made as much sense as Maura Sargent: pageant queen, or Maura Sargent: rogue Russian cosmonaut.

    But we are in love. She said so! It makes me want to do a little happy face, like this -- :)

    I can't though, because I'm a curtain. :(

    Summary

    Probably Declan should let Parrish know that he knew. That he watched Parrish watch him as he conversed breezily with Gansey. Shrewd eyes narrowed as he flirted with Ashley, leaning in close to whisper in her ear, relishing her shiver of anticipation.

     

    Five dollars for the show, kid. Leave the money on the nightstand.

     

    From the Declan/Adam Prompt Festival: When and how did Declan decide that Adam was a "creepily clever little fuck"?

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Declan recognized that brand of hunger, that wanting, the tell-tale sign of a smooth façade, flimsy as papier-mâché, hastily slapped over jagged, yawning, howling desperation. But with all that, the kid was doing pretty well for himself. So he clearly knew how to survive—another mark that made him dangerous. No one that concerned with their own survival was trustworthy.

    Summary

    The man who had rented the room before him had also been a PI, and so Detective Shane Madej’s door still read CC TINSLEY & ASSOCIATES, PRIVATE INVESTIGATORS in peeling gold letters.

    Along with the door, he’d inherited Tinsley’s desk, his reputation, and one badly-lit corridor’s worth of neighbors. These included a disreputable tattooist, an off-book accountant and, of course, The Mystic Oracle: Spirit Connexions and Communications.

    LA, 1927 – Shane’s a jaded Private Eye. Ryan’s a two-bit Spiritualist. Together, they’re going to solve a murder.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    “Oh no,” Shane said at once. “No. Nope. I’m not writing Shane Madej, Ghost Detective on my door. Absolutely not. You can do what you want with your half of it, but I am Shane Madej, Private Investigator, and I will remain that way.”

    “Technically, you’re CC Tinsley and Associates, Private Investigators,” Ryan said. “But sure.”

    Summary

    The silence swallowed his voice for a long time.

    “Ó Corra?”

    She gave him a look that said, you can’t pronounce your own name. Finally she said, “You have my name. It’s what they did when the father couldn’t be found.”

    “I’m not a good woman, Declan. Don’t make your father’s mistake. Don’t dream me into being one.”
