    Summary

    “Do you think she’s alone?” He looked at me with his lips pressed in a thin line. He was studying me; I don’t know what he saw, but he must have liked it fine.
    “No,” he finally said. “I don’t think she’s alone.”
    “You’re a special kind of husband, if you mind as little as you seem to,” I observed, and he laughed, a sharp, brittle thing.
    “You have no idea what kind of husband I am,” he said, and disappeared behind the frosted glass of the office door.
    He was right: I didn’t have any idea. But I knew I wanted to find out.

     

    When Peg Hunnicutt disappears without a trace, BJ is the prime suspect. He enlists hardboiled Hawkeye Pierce to track her down and clear his name, but how can Hawkeye be sure he's as innocent as he seems?

    Summary

    A little idea I had, it just came as a noir. Love the style, but haven't read much so just bear with me.

    First work, started a while back, finished during the pandemics. Had to let it go or else I'd be still rewriting it. It's complete and I think it's time to share it.

    Would love to hear what you guys think and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did writing it.

    NYC. Post-Great War, gloomy weather, fancy clothes, booze, a femme fatale, a P.I., and a mystery to solve.

    Summary

    Light believes Kira has no more enemies. He has conquered and brought his usurpers to their knees. Kira's brand new world will thrive with L out of the picture. The Kira Task Force is a farce. But Light didn't count on someone stepping out of the shadows to challenge Kira with such boldness and tenacity, and who has a diabolic plan to seed his vengeance against Kira in such a way that Light's humiliation of L won't compare to what Light will suffer.

    It all starts on Light's birthday. A killer is challenging Kira and murdering people with a unique pattern. But who is 'Beyond Birthday' and why is he targeting Light? Is this about L? Attacked and targeted at every turn, Light must rise to the challenge of Beyond Birthday's machinations. Meanwhile, another threat looms on the horizon from a different source. He wants Kira defeated, but also Beyond Birthday humiliated and dead. History is about to catch up to them in separate ways, and they are thrown into a game of life and death that could be more than either one of them can handle.

    Summary

    Original Prompt:
    "Jensen is a private eye, Jared is a gorgeous "dame" that comes into his office with a case (for example, his sibling or significant other is dead/missing) and trouble.

    Turn the noir-y style in the writing up to eleven. This could be non-AU J2 roleplaying as well."

    More or less that.

    Summary

    It's been a year since the case of my missing brother was solved - and things haven't gotten any easier.

    It was supposed to be a relaxing time. A vacation to a ritzy hotel with free food sounds great, right? In this golden dining room, filled to the brim with strange characters, I had hoped my only worries would be dealing with day-to-day life.

    But the thing is, I’m Luigi, and I’m not allowed to relax.

    Someone’s stolen a precious artifact from Wario and we’re all trapped here until someone can figure out who did it.

    It certainly won’t be me!

    Summary

    "If anyone ever asked the overly ambitious Manuel C. Calavera why he purchased the crumbling, derelict, pre-calamity building which resided at number 118 Bulevar Maravilla in Havana, Cuba, he would just laugh and say, 'It has good bones.'"

    In a world where a calamitous clash between warring deities has caused an apocalyptic "reset" in the reincarnation cycle, a now-living Manny Calavera is haunted by memories of a past life and death which no one else shares, and a powerful, secret supernatural "Touch" which threatens to drag his new life--and everyone else in it--into ruin. The consequences of a selfish and impulsive decision have invited tragedy and danger to Manny's doorstep, and now a debonair international spy investigating his involvement in the mystery is the only person that stands between Manny and the precipice of disaster.

    Summary

    Oil and Vinegar is a offside passion project set outside the Zootopian Canon and the "In Cold Blood Universe".

    Set in a 1960's Zootopia, a young Nick Wilde is tasked as an Undercover Investigator. Typically his day job is nothing exciting, filing background checks or piles of paperwork, and a divided Zootopia means usually his only clients are carnivores. However, a young, optimistic, and nosy Judy Hopps seeks out the expertise of Nick Wilde to investigate a growing criminal organization, engineering a narcotic by the name of "NightHowlers". Nick, going against his best interests, will tear the division between Carnivores and Herbivores apart by taking on Judy's case. It quickly turns out that Nick and Judy both bit off more than they can chew. Sometimes, things are best left undisturbed, and now Nick is not only caught in a high-profile case tangled with sabotage, seduction, and murder, but also a new love interest, and of all things, a bunny.

    The first few chapters have been rewritten. Expect updates monthly.

    Summary

    “Tony, listen to me," said Steve. "This isn’t you. You’re not a PI, you’re a genius billionaire playboy philanthropist superhero. You and everyone else who lives in the tower have all been put under a spell, and you need to come with me to break it.”

    I suppose that’s what I get for saying I’ve heard it all before, thought Tony.

    ***

    Someone's cast a spell on Avengers Tower that has changed each floor into a different kind of story, and trapped the Avengers inside. Steve mounts a rescue mission, starting with Tony Stark, PI, a noir detective who's got a thing for blonde bombshells who bring trouble to his door.

    IMPORTANT: If you've turned off skins, you need to turn them on for this story.

    Also, actual word count for this fic is around 30-35k words, because many words are hidden visually to make this work accessible for assistive technology.

    Summary

    The man didn’t answer and he didn’t sit down; he just stood in the middle of the room like a fancy lamp. “I seem to have come into a bit of a problem,” he said. 'Come into', like coming into money, except the way he said ‘problem’ made it clear it wasn’t his usual inheritance.

    “What kind of problem?”

    “The kind that requires discretion.”

    Trevor took his hand away from the drawer and split into the lazy, well-worn grin he gave to clients. Because here was a client. “Then you’ve come to the right man.”

    Summary

    A Canadian raccoon private detective finds himself seeking asylum after blowing the lid wide open on the criminal underground back home. Finding himself in the metropolis of Zootopia, he encounters a trailblazing hare police officer who's starting to fall out of love with her line of work, and her partner (in more ways than one), a fox who quit the force out of a sense of spiritual urgency -- but who didn't have a backup plan. One fears their past, one their present, and one their future, and as a strange new threat comes upon the city, the three come together to try to solve the question: how do you help make the world a better place when you can't even help yourself?
