    Summary

    Another explosion sounds in the distance.

    “Really,” Santino says. “I understand making a statement, but after a certain point it becomes vulgar. Oh, you have a tank? How nice for you. No one is impressed.”

    Do a stolen car and a dead dog justify the murder of Viggo Tarasov’s only heir? The High Table believes not, and that means it’s open season on John Wick. Every enemy he’s ever made is invited to take their grievances to his door - and he’s made a lot of enemies. The only way out of this death sentence is to marry someone whose influence can protect him.

    It’s lucky Santino is available to make John an offer he very much can’t refuse.

    Summary

    “If I keep bringing you to restaurants, will you keep ordering steaks?” Santino asks.

    “You were curious about who I am,” John shoots back, this time a reply on the ready.

    Certainly, Santino is still curious about the man behind the legend. It seems that most times the monster is subdued. As much as Santino wants to see Baba Yaga in action, he has to admit that there has to be, at least in part, something to counterbalance it.

    “So what, you’re indulging me?”

    “Figured you’ll get bored sooner or later,” Jon replies, straight-faced. “I’m just here for the food.”

    In which Santino finally meets the Baba Yaga, asks him out to lunch, and then is surprised when their dates keep happening.

    Summary

    Beyond Helen, John was not used to lying. Until the day of her death, he had been grateful that she never asked deeper questions about his tattoos, about the way he habitually watched the shadows, about how he always chose to sit in a restaurant with his back to the wall and within view of the exits, about how he refused to travel. Because of his lies, they lived a staged life drawn in uneven acts.

    Summary

    People say that a brain in love is the closest to insanity.
    In Santino’s experience, that was true.

    Summary

    As far as plans go, John’s one mantra was always to plan for the unexpected. His plan to work for the D’Antonio family included the following expectations: a young bratty Camorra prince, multiple assassination attempts geared towards said young bratty Camorra prince, and a sizable income to make up for putting up with all of it. The unexpected element was the copious amount of thinly veiled flirting directed his way by his young ward.

    If John were any less disciplined about his work, he might even admit that the lingering glances the young Italian tended to reserve for him were not unwelcome.

    Summary

    “I thought we were friends,” Gianna said. She faced John down, unafraid and unbowed, her sheer dress flaking the light over her skin. Her hair was bound in a crown of gold and brown ringlets over her expressive face. She wore regret in the thin press of her lips, but also pity. The pity had always been there, the strangest thing that John had always remembered about Gianna.

    “We are.” John reversed his grip on the gun, holding it by the muzzle. Gianna straightened up as he walked to her, offering her the pistol.

    Summary

    -Unscheduled appointment at the door,- Ares signed.

    Santino frowned at the clock with a furious cat in hand. “It’s seven in the fucking morning. We’re not open. I don’t care if it’s the Manager or High Table or even an Adjudicator, they can make a goddamned appointment.”

    Ares didn’t budge. -It’s John Wick.-

    Summary

    Bored and in need of a vacation, Santino managed to whisk his dour new bodyguard away to Venice. He had convinced John pretty easily, so that was a plus. If he could convince the man to do other things, well, double plus.

    Set about fifteen years pre-canon, when John Wick worked for the D'Antonios.

    Summary

    A new performer at the Continental catches John Wick's eye.

    A handsome stranger at the bar earns the infatuation of the Continental's newest performer.

    Two attractive, closed-off people with more baggage than anyone should ever have - what could go wrong?

    A/N: I'll be making major edits to this story when I finish it at the end of this week. I'll probably trade the few smut scenes for more plot, but it'll be essentially the same story. Thanks for sticking with me through this story!

    Summary

    “Jonathan,” Winston said as John stared down the barrel of the gun at Santino. His aim was true and his finger was on the trigger. John knew exactly how much pressure to apply to get the weapon to fire. He was already braced for the recoil, for the noise, for the stench. Death had been John’s shadow for so long that he’d stopped noticing the weight it bore on his soul.

    Until Helen. John wavered. For the first time in his long career his aim shook, twisting fractionally to the side. Slouched in his chair, Santino smiled with the venomous pleasure of a man damned past caring. “You’re prepared to die,” John said, ignoring Winston.

    “Aren’t we all?” Santino stabbed another potato with his fork.

    Summary

    Santino D’Antonio arrived in New York City fully intent on forcing John’s hand against his sister and taking her seat at the High Table for himself. However, somewhere along the way there was a change of plan.

    If you don’t want to be stuck working under the Table and if even after getting a seat at the Table there’s still someone above you… you might as well consider setting a Table of your own.

    John had him convinced, now he just had to convince John.

    Summary

    The stranger at the bar was the most beautiful person John had ever seen. Lush curly hair, soft cheeks, wide dark eyes, graceful legs and narrow hips. He looked young, in his late twenties or thirties. Wealthy, with his expensive-looking watch and a charcoal grey suit that fit him like another skin. He also didn’t look like he was at the bar with anyone, drinking a glass of wine while checking his phone.

    Summary

    Luck, in their business, was a matter of debate. As much as they had those. Some swore by it, most called it bullshit.

    John Wick was one of those that knew luck existed, if only because his was so consistently shitty.

    Summary

    The look she gave me could have chilled a man — or laid him out on a morgue slab. “My father died three weeks ago; he left the clan and his seat on the High Table to me. With that seat comes certain responsibilities.”

    “I’m retired,” I said.

    “You were retired,” she said. “And while you were content to play house, or to drink yourself to death, or to drive around in your car wasting away — you were not my concern. But you chose to return to the board.”

    “Get out of my house,” I said.

    Gianna ignored me. “I do not want to be here, John. I came to call in a favor.”

    Summary

    “No. I just got this in the mail.” John hands Santino an envelope with an address based near Oklahoma and a plethora of stamps. There are some wrinkles near the corners as if someone tampered with it indecisively. The handwriting is illegible, which makes the sender anonymous to Santino.

    “You haven’t opened it yet?” Santino wonders.

    (John receives a letter from his sister with a reason to come back to Oklahoma and, more importantly, his family.)

    Summary

    John was efficient. Perhaps too efficient. The Serbs saw a chance for success in allying themselves with the Italians. John had been traded like common goods. Then the Italians lifted their paw and crushed the Serbs’ whole operation in one fell swoop. Two years into his contract with the Italians, John met Santino.
