    Summary

    Eponine lived half her life at Cosette’s house when she was eighteen.

    Well. Not quite half. And not her life either, because her life wasn’t like Cosette’s life, with her floral print dresses and light, dizzying perfume, and her bedroom clean and neat, and a father who she saw everyday, who’d kiss her on the forehead, and give her twenty, thirty, fifty quid ‘in case anything bad happens’ and say ‘be safe, my dear’.

    “I do wonder where you go sometimes,” Cosette said, smiling at Eponine’s reflection. “You get so lost in your head.”

    Eponine blinked, and scowled at her bleach-blonde friend. She didn’t get too many moments like that.

    “Only when I’m around you,” she said, and Cosette laughed, all bubbly and delighted.

    Summary

    [ Part of the modern Brit AU for Thief and Dishonored ]

    Basso wishes he never took Garrett on this job. He wishes he never taught Garrett how to drive. Sometimes, he wishes Garrett would be less reckless but then again, his speed has saved their arses more than once, and although he'd never admit it, he wouldn’t change Garrett for the world.

    Birmingham, UK, January 2019.
    Garrett, 22, is a petty criminal, hacker, and on the wrong side of the law. Basso, 32, is a fence of stolen goods, safecracker, tattoo artist, and adoptive big brother of Garrett. Together they work to rob businesses of their expensive goodies and sell them off for cash. But even the best criminals can't be perfect. When the police are called on them during a job, they have to make a quick getaway. Even the most rigorous of plans have weaknesses, and Garrett finds this all too clear while escaping with Basso.

    Summary

    He leads her down a hallway, turns left and stops at a wooden door with a pane of glass obscured by blinds. He knocks twice, then steps away. Her shoes squeak on the floor causing a faint snort of amusement from Jughead. Betty’s nose twitches in annoyance as he looks down.

    “Just so you know I’m kind of the best Detective around here.” His laughter lines are gone, replaced by hardness that only means business.

    Betty squares up to him as the door opens, all her previous nervousness dissipating instantly. “You were.” She smiles, knowingly. Then disappears behind the door, leaving Jughead laughing manically.

    ---------------------------------------------

    Or Betty and Jughead are Detectives and they're trying to survive.

    Summary

    Summary

    The door to Bakugou’s room remains closed and unbroken into. The desire to see the hothead’s room is incredibly strong, so much so, they’ve gathered outside like vultures whilst he sleeps. Ashido leans between them, over their shoulders, to whisper.

    “A’s aba’t ya both go in? Makes it fair.”

     

    ----

    In which the author finds herself getting tired of deciding whether to use American or British language and spelling and is convinced to write a BNHA fic set in Britain by a fellow idiot to appease her stupid self-indulgence. Good luck.
