    Summary

    The first thing he sees when his eyes have adjusted to the light is a man standing there – red hair down to the naked shoulders, slightly curled. Freckled face, grimacing. A scar stretching up from his lower abdomen, under his arm, down to his side.

    His fist strikes the mirror before he’s even properly comprehended the whole picture.

    (Post LSODM AU – Valkyrie disappeared in the Temple of the Brides of Blood Tears. After her performance at the Battle of Roarhaven, they can’t find Darquesse, either. Time passes and extreme measures are taken.)

    Summary

    “We’ve saved the world.”

    Skulduggery’s head moved a centimeter in her direction. “I’m sorry?”

    Valkyrie continued to gaze out of the car window, watching the man in the next car over pick his nose.

    “Well, it’s just that we’ve saved the world, Skulduggery. Everything.”

    The car inched forward, engine purring with impatience.

    “I... fail to see your point,” he admitted.

    “We’re in traffic.”

    “Yes.”

    Summary

    While he’s seen many disturbing and disgusting things, the deep sense of wrongness that pervades the room has every one of those persistent nerve endings on the back of his vertebrae on end; the feeling that he’s stepping towards something of malicious indifference and unknowable magnitudes.

    or;

    Fifty years after storing their secrets in metal gears, Detectives Cain and Pleasant investigate a break-in of the magical variety.

    Summary

    Between Caisson, Australia's continued difficulties, rumours of a Death Bringer, and Alice Edgley's insistence on taking matters into her own hands, things are stretched thin for the Arbiter Corp. ((This lack of summary is brought to you by the fact that I cannot summarise anything without spoiling the previous stories ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ))

    Summary

    “You can’t stay mad at me for long.” He said, voice soft and velvety. If this were any other situation, his voice would have made her melt, but she fought hard to hold on to her anger.

    Summary

    Valkyrie remembers music and waltzing; her partner is every bit of the talk he boasts about; his movements fluid as he leads her in an elegant routine. Meaning that she can be as terrible a dancer as she likes, and they will still be the most talked about couple for centuries.

    Summary

    At first, Skulduggery Pleasant is relieved to discover that his partner, Valkyrie Cain, is beginning to put more effort into things outside of hunting the intangible Abyssinia. At first, he assumes that the vampire contact she gained while tracking the Murder Skull is more helpful than harmful. As usual, presumptions are a dangerous thing.

    Summary

    Skulduggery Pleasant has heard her name before - who hasn't? Valkyrie Cain, the one who secrets into the Sanctuary for midnight meetings with the Grand Mage. Who is somehow on the edge of most criminal activity in the city, nearby but unlinkable. Who has friends in high places, and even more in the low ones. In spite of her questionable history, Valkyrie proves a quick and willing partner to him - even though Skulduggery still can't discern her motives for doing so.

    Summary

    He looked at her again, finally, his head slightly tilted. If he had breath, she imagined he would sigh. She wondered nonsensically what he would sound like, sighing.

    “Yeah. I know those types of days.”

    Summary

    Skulduggery walks in on Valkyrie having sex with his friends, one after the other. Clearly, it's Skulduggery she wants, she just needs him to see how badly.

     

    (Everyone is alive and nobody is evil, because porn, and also because I think denial is going to bring the emotional safety of early series back.)
