    All Saracen did was get drunk in a pub.
    Suddenly he’s being dragged off to save his friend from random British aristocrats by a girl with a gut instinct that’s always right.
    This is most definitely Dexter Vex’s fault.

    Summary

    The boys are back.... and hoping for the "normal" high school experience after the tragedies and drama of their sophomore year.

    But nothing is ever exactly normal, and there certainly isn't one way to grow up. Erskine Ravel isn't ready for the rollercoaster ride that becomes life, but, unfortunately, he's strapped in for the long ride.

    (At least he has his boyfriend to help him.)

    Summary

    " In 1850, all the members of the Dead Men were down in France, huddled in a field. They had been in that spot for 3 days, and all of them, excluding Skulduggery, were wet and hungry. On the third day, Larrikin decided that it was Anton's birthday. Although their targets were passing by, Larrikin insisted he sing Anton a happy birthday song. He then proceeded to hug Anton, which showed Anton not being a hugging person. The hugging lead into an intensely quiet wrestling match between the two. When Larrikin was in a choke hold, he pulled out a very crushed bun that he had been hiding for three days and put a candle in it, saying that it was Anton's cake. It was the only time that they had seen Anton smile while on a mission." ~ Skulpedia

    After the prank Anton goes to confront the other. There they have a nice talk and Larrikin tell him something that makes the other think.

    Summary

    Who is Skulduggery Pleasant? He's a wise-cracking detective, powerful sorcerer, master of dirty tricks and burglary (all in the name of the greater good, of course). And, oh yeah - he's dead.

    But once, he was just a boy with a stutter.

    This story covers the major events and changes in the life of Skulduggery Pleasant from that point to the present. Tags and archive warnings will be amended as they apply. This story also uses the headcanon material and original characters of both purplejabberwocky and myself, specifically with regards to the Dead Men.

    Summary

    The tales of the Dead Men as youths, and how they came to be as individuals and as sorcerers.

    First: The weaver. All Ailill wanted was a couple of werewolf pelts to make a cloak. Instead he got vampires and some old man who most definitely was not a faery.

    Second: The stray. Máenach knows he's unprepared for the world outside his monastery. He just hopes he can avoid tainting too many innocents with his unhallowed soul.

    Third: The shieldbearer. Damán is fairly sure family isn't meant to treat each other like this. He just doesn't understand why he's the one who's so different.

    Fourth: The wanderer. The problem with life is, sometimes, it's just not worth living. Tadgh has figured out a way around that, but he wonders if it actually helps.

    Fifth: The brother. With nine siblings to care for, the last thing Aodh needs is to fall ill. Getting possessed by a demon also wasn’t on the agenda.

     

    (NOTE: Spoilers for most recent books in the comments.)

    (NOTE: 'The weaver' and 'The stray' are transferred from 'Dead Men Talking'. 'The stray' has been renamed from 'The brother'.)

    (NOTE 2nd Sept 2014: Updated for canon compliance, no major spoilers.)

    Summary

    Skulduggery Pleasant is gone, sucked into a parallel dimension overrun by the Faceless Ones. If his bones haven't already been turned to dust, chances are he's insane, driven out of his mind by the horror of the ancient gods. There is no official plan to save him.

    But the Dead Men have never had much time for plans. The problem is that someone else has planned to stop them--and they're succeeding.

    Summary

    Victor Sullivan has something he's been hiding from Nate, but that time's about to come to an end.

    This is a crossover between the Uncharted video game series and the Skulduggery Pleasant book series - specifically purplejabberwocky's AU in which all the Dead Men survive the war. This was born from discussions of implausibility in the Uncharted universe, and is meant for light fluff and humour.

    (In other words, it won't be anywhere near as dark as most of the things I write.)

    Summary

    The Dead Men: Eight of the most powerful sorcerers in Mevolent's war. They're also eight of the craziest. It was a long and rocky road getting there ... but at least one thing never changed.

    Even in the beginning, they were crazy.

    Summary

    “They know, you know,” Donegan said in a low voice. “The Dead Men. All of them. They’ve got to. And they’re not telling anyone.”

    Lord Vile. One of the most feared personages in the war. But he's back--or so the world thinks. Now the Dead Men know better. All they have to do is pick up the pieces of that betrayal. Only Skulduggery has any idea how. The problem is that it means making the same mistake over again.

    And this time there'll be no coming back.
