    Summary

    Hatchetfield, 1946

    After the Second World War has come to an end, the citizens of Hatchetfield move on in life, blissful in the presence of music and life and laughter.
    But when a major executive of a manufacturing company is found dead on the beach, murder most foul becomes the towns biggest story.
    Enter Paul Matthews, a mild-mannered reporter for the Hatchetfield Gazette who gets stuck with the story.
    In the wake of red-herrings, riots, and a trail of deaths that seems to lead to one killer, can Paul, with the help of the spunky barmaid, Emma, stop the killing?

    Basically, I got impatient and wrote a Noir Paulkins AU in the middle of writing Until it Sleeps, in spite of having a bunch of other WIP’s I need to finish

    Really hope you guys enjoy!!!

    Summary

    “There’s a faultline...right there.” Fyodor’s hand reached up slowly, fingers barely skimming the glass barrier between them. “It’s what separates bureaucracy from what is just. Tell me, Ango...do you think I’m a criminal?”

    Ango wasn’t sure what type of game this was. He wasn’t sure how Fyodor was manipulating his thoughts, burrowing so deep into his skull and clenching as if he owned every single one of them.

    “You already know what I think.”

    Fyodor’s mouth was slow to shift into a grin. The movement was languid, like an animal stretching on its hind legs. His canines flashed.

    Ango was under no illusion.

    Fyodor may have been the one behind bars, but ultimately -

    He was the one who was trapped.

    OR

    Ango's obsession with Fyodor intensifies when the man is imprisoned.

    Years of chasing have lead to this.

    Summary

    "No, I’ll come too,” Hanna says, “you never know with PIs.”

    “That's true. Do you remember the one in Trenton?” Spencer asks with a laugh. Hanna wrinkles her nose.

    “The greasy-looking one?” Hanna asks, “with the sauce in his beard?”

    “That one. It’s amazing he ever managed to investigate anything. Or find his own office,” Spencer says, shaking her head and scoffing.

    “But somehow, his hand managed to find your thigh,” Hanna says. She can picture that day in her mind so clearly. She can smell the stink of food, sweat, and cigars that had been overpowering in his office. She can see the lear in his eyes when he'd looked at Spencer. She can hear the satisfying yelp he’d made when she'd taken the framed picture of his wife off of his desk and jammed it into his lap.

    (Or: A noir-style AU featuring vigilante girlfriends Spencer and Hanna.)

    Summary

    It's a surprise to many, but not all, that Katarina is found dead in her bed in the early hours of the morning.

    ------------------------------

    VE: When would you say she passed?

    ML: Based on the contents of the late Lady Claes' stomach, and the amount of digested poison in her bloodstream, she must have passed at some time between midnight and three o'clock in the morning.

    VE: The morning of the fourth of November, 1629, correct?

    ML: Correct.

    -----------------------------------------

    "I have control of this case, Valer- may I call you Valer?"

    "Of course-"

    "And I will not allow Jeord to change that, no matter what. But the longer you take to produce results, the more pressure there will be for this investigation to change in some other way."

    Summary

    In the wake of World War II, Jane Shepard and her team take on a city investigation contract amidst significant social opposition. What they find seeping into their reality, however, overshadows all the city's current problems.

    This work is a retelling of the Mass Effect Trilogy, following my current playthrough of the Legendary Edition, adapted to a supernatural film noir setting. Updates will happen fairly sporadically as I work on other projects and find time to play the games. Some elements will have to be changed more than others to suit the setting and my own tastes.
