    Summary

    “You told me to do what felt right, and if I did I would see a path open up for myself.”

    Laurent nodded, “I remember.”

    “Well, I don’t feel right. This case didn’t feel right.” He scoffed, “the only path that’s been opened for me has been trampled in.”

    Summary

    Edamura Makoto wants to do nothing more than use some of his well-earned con money to go on a lavish coffee adventure around the world, free of his criminal struggles from over the past few years, before settling down somewhere nice and quiet. Especially keeping away from a tenacious blonde bastard.

    But during a visit to a charming coffee shop in the outskirts of Taipei, Taiwan, he meets a rather captivating woman standing next door, tears rolling down her cheeks as she watches a cruel man take away her family's workplace and the entire neighborhood's as well to build a new factory for bubble tea distribution... or so he says. Edamura said he wouldn't go back to the con life, but what harm would it do to help out such a kind woman and her adoptive parents? But there's a nagging feeling in the back of his head that won't go away the more he learns about her and her troubling past. It doesn't help that he feels like he's seen the shiny ring glinting brightly on her finger before...

    Summary

    “…Do you like cats?” Suzaku asked with a straight face.

    Laurent faltered slightly at the question, caught off guard by the mundane question. “Excuse me?”

    Suzaku’s eyes narrowed. “I asked if you liked cats.”

    There's something strange going on behind the scenes of this case that Laurent can't quite put his finger on. First, it was the questions, then it was the strange "business meetings", and next thing Laurent knows, a box with a diamond ring in it is being shoved in his hands and he's down on one knee proposing to a stranger. Ah, well, he's not complaining.

    Or, the canon divergence au where Laurent Thierry is conned into a marriage with Edamura Makoto by a certain CEO, but he goes along with his plans anyways, his fiancé be damned.

    Summary

    It's the easiest thing in the world to pretend- most people go through their whole lives without ever saying anything true. But sometimes the reverse is accurate too. After all, what makes liars great is how honest they can be. It's with this philosophy in mind that Laurent sets about being two steps ahead of everyone, but always turning around to check if Edamura is matching his pace.

    (Or the 5 times Laurent gives Edamura a choice and the 1 time Edamura acts on it.)

    Summary

    Laurent Thierry is supposedly France’s greatest swindler. Together with his partner Thomas, they try to trick a Japanese tourist but unexpectedly get tricked instead. The Japanese man, whom they tried to swindle, turns out to be Makoto Edamura- a much higher-level ‘con man,’ in control of the mafias. Laurent is yet to find out what fate lies await for him, after having joined the Japanese man’s dirty jobs...!

    (Basically, Great Pretender but all the characters are swapped. Great Pretender does not belong to me; I only own the swap au, original I know...)

    Summary

    Their conversations happened in small spurts. They wouldn’t spend too long on a topic, and once they finished what they were talking about, they would sit in silence, taking in the view. The porchlights had turned on, so now they could see the grand backyard in all its glory. The flowerbed with all the daisies Akemi liked. The brick path that seemed to go on forever. The little planter boxes that held all the vegetable plants. To Edamura, the backyard has never looked quite this magical before.

    Summary

    The pain and pleasures of the past can often affect how we move forward in the future. For Laurent, he pretends he’s moving on with his life when he’s barely moved an inch ahead. But all it takes is that one outstretched hand and that angry voice shouting his name to give him the hope and courage to finally step forward.
