    Summary

    New York, 1946

    “At their smallest components, humans are indistinguishable from forest fires.” Logan Sul swirled his glass of scotch around idly, watching the ice clink together. “All it takes is the smallest spark to set them off.” He casually took a sip, amber eyes piercing each member of the assembled group.

    Virgil Avery, the paranoid security guard.

    Patton Parker, the far too-cheerful nightclub owner.

    Roman Torres, the high-strung star.

    Viper Salem, the obsessive widow.

    Dorian Arya, the mysterious ex-business partner

    “Any singular person is more than capable of being a murderer.” He set his glass down on the side table, dabbing at his mouth with his handkerchief. He turned back to the group and smiled viciously, a hunter with his sights set on prey. “And one of you is.”

    Summary

    "Did it help you?" Enjolras asked, his eyes suddenly intense. Joly felt uncomfortably exposed under that stare, which seemed to see through all of his pretenses and to a truth which he didn't think he knew himself.

    "I haven't had anyone to talk to," Joly said, trying not to let it get to him.

    "I'll tell you my story if you tell me yours."

    *

    After the war ended in 1945, Joly decided to keep those years in the past and dedicated himself to his new duties at the hospital. But when a former resistance leader with nothing but the name "Apollo" to go by is placed under his care, Joly is tasked with learning about his past and those of the people depicted in a certain cynic's sketchbook.

    Summary

    This is a collection of short fics I’ve written within the Shades of Magic universe for the August Writer’s Month prompts for 2020. These pieces have all ended up circulating around several AUs -- a modern AU, a 1940s AU, a Victorian AU where Antari are spirit mediums, and some extra pieces in the same Great War AU as Amid the Ruin -- plus a few odds and ends. This collection has everything: fluff, drama, angst, romance, some darkness at the edges to keep it interesting. Since a coherent order is not a thing, I’ll be marking each chapter with whatever storyline it is plus whatever characters appear in it. So you all can pick and choose whichever strikes your fancy!

    CW: I make no guarantees about the content of these chapters. I've outlined all of them, but am essentially writing on the fly. The rating I’ve given reflects the variety of content in here, including some pretty dark stuff and/or nsfw situations. Since the content varies greatly from chapter to chapter, I will be including individual warnings at the top of each chapter, as well as updating the tags as this project goes on! Stay safe and enjoy!

    Summary

    Childhood sweethearts torn apart to then be reunited on the opposite sides of the war between the crime families of New York.

    It is never easy to forget your first love.

    The wound could heal, the bleeding would stop but the scar tissue that covered it was thin and easily broken.

    ...

    Stark stumbled upon an orphaned girl, on the cold streets of Boston while visiting for business. She stood outside a restaurant singing with her enticing deep feminine drawl, which made him pause and stare, so he made her the star of his prised club.

    ...

    “Ya want revenge son?” he heard the man in a white three-piece suit suddenly speak, his voice deep like grovel with a gun in his hand and a cigarette hanging off his lips, breathing out smoke through his nose like the bull. His head tipped down, the hat he wore cast a dark shadow over his face, his eyes glinting in the dim light.

    “Yes”

    And just like that James had sealed his own fate.
