    Summary

    This fic is a noir detective story with Jughead as an LA private eye between the wars. Betty has a case for him.

    He found a shadowy booth and sat to wait for his mark to show. That was when, with a rustle of silk, she slid into his booth and into his life. “Mr Jones?” She said, her voice low and soft as a featherbed. She wore a picture hat, the brim casting a deep shadow over her eyes but she smelled good and her lips were as red and shiny as a showroom Cadillac. A lot of guys would have laid a hand on her leg or maybe more but Jughead knew she was no broad, this was a dame with class. He kept his hands to himself.

    Summary

    With a violent efficiency, he grabbed their shoulders and flipped them onto their back. They landed in the empty space in the bed next to where he had been sleeping. He could hear the air rush out of them and saw the surprise in their light blue eyes as he pinned them down. His leg crossed theirs to hold them in place and the wince that crossed their face was unpracticed and true. He looked down at them and swallowed. His heart was hammering so hard he thought it might crack his chest open.

    "So,” Beelzebub started, breathless and grimacing. “Not happy to see me then?”

    In the aftermath of his first intimate encounter with Beelzebub Prince, Detective Gabriel Bote struggles to move forward, each night plagued with the new and terrifying knowledge his body holds.

    Summary

    [«C’è questa cosa che fai» dice Alec, esasperato. «Questo potere che hai che ti fa sembrare indistruttibile».

    «Lo so» ribatte Alec. «Ma comunque… ci sono delle volte in cui non ne sono così sicuro».]

    1992, New York, una città che continua ad aggrapparsi a sentimenti venati dalle tensioni della Guerra Fredda. Alec Lightwood è un Corporate – un supereroe che lavora su commissione – cerca di barcamenarsi tra un’identità segreta, la necessità di aggrapparsi ad una parvenza di vita normale e il fatto che i vigilante continuano a comparire ammazzati nei bassifondi senza un’apparente spiegazione.
    Le cose non possono che peggiorare quando Magnus – un giornalista investigativo – inizia a rimuovere la maschera che Alec si è attentamente costruito… e poi c’è quel misterioso vigilante con il potere della psicocinesi che continua ad apparire ovunque Alec vada – Alec non riesce proprio a tirare il fiato.
    A Cold Night for Good Deeds è una AU sui superereoi, slow-burn e neonoir, che parla di identità, verità e innamorarsi senza conoscere il vero nome di una persona.
