    Summary

    The New Barovia Noir AU you did not know you need in your life... until you realized just how perfect all the desperation, darkness and Gothic horror will translate into a Noir film.

    Set in some misty lands, somewhere in our modern times. The dark streets of New Barovia are just as unforgiving as their medieval counterparts; ominous shadows are lurking in the dark alleys, sweet voices are promising pleasure and power, every sin for your money, stranger. But do not listen to them or you will find yourself selling your own children or your very soul for just a few grains of the Dark Gifts — the new drug in town, the one that promises fulfillment of your every wish...

    Tags, characters and rating will be successively updated for future chapters. Created with our PCs in mind, some chapters will follow their adventures, while the others will focus exclusively on the NPCs.

    Summary

    Elderly Jedi Master Dooku was happily retired to his castle on Serenno when one of his former padawans, Asajj Ventress, starts getting threatening notes from someone who was involved in her sordid past. Wishing to keep the investigation in the family, he asks for Obi-Wan to handle it as his first mission back in the field after medical leave/ rehab. Things quickly spin out of control for Obi-Wan and his two shady lineage-aunts, as Asajj's past on Rattatak comes back to bite. It's up to BFFs Knight Siri Tachi and Duchess Satine to rescue Obi-Wan and help him uncover the truth while Mace Windu does some sleuthing on his own into what is going on with Anakin's training bond with his master.

    Prompt: Star Wars Noirs: The Big Sleep (1946).

    Summary

    Unconnected fills for the 3-Sentence Ficathon on Dreamwidth; though they contain a variety of pairings, they lean strongly towards Acatl/Teomitl. (And pretty much none of them have stuck to three sentences. Oops.)

    Summary

    There's a mysterious scandal afoot in the underbelly (and overbelly) of Coruscant, and Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi means to drag the *perfectly respectable* Senator Padme Amidala into the fray whether she's ready or not. FYI: She's ready. What she's NOT ready for: Master Obi-Wan Kenobi's infectious smiles. Also included: Padwan Anakin "tall, dark, and silly" Skywalker. AU-ish.

    Summary

    The Krogans say that the only stories worth telling are those of love, sex, and war. Remix and retelling of canon with original content and AU spanning ME1-3. A reinvention of the lore and origins of Jane Shepard and Garrus Vakarian before and during the Reaper War.

    Featuring an original past of a ‘survivor’ female Shepard as a drala'fa ('the ignored') from Omega. Jane is a closed-off, somewhat mysterious femme-fatale paragade with secrets stemming from her checkered past, struggling with changes from her visions caused by touching the beacon on Eden Prime.

    The story explores multiple tones, including a noir loss of innocence story for Garrus concerning his metamorphosis into Archangel. Detailed reflections from the perspectives of other characters and crew, including a deep exploration of Thane. Includes slips into the surreal with an emphasis on belief systems, lore, and culture within the Mass Effect Universe.

    This is the complete prose and plot rework of the unfinished original version posted to fanfiction.net from years back.

    Summary

    “Tony, listen to me," said Steve. "This isn’t you. You’re not a PI, you’re… 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: Turn on skins for this story!

    Summary

    Amesame Noir AU Oneshot!

    The blond-haired girl stood up, looking with pity and sadness at the poor murdered man’s body. Seized by a pang in the stomach, she looked away, finding once again the sea that surrounded that cursed city. The waves sounded so peaceful and serene. That noise was perhaps one of the few things that still kept her sane.

As the Jedi are not only themselves under attack by Astera’s agents, but their friends throughout the 1442.
