    AU.

    A city plagued by violence.

    A detective who can't resist temptation.

    Trusts that are broken and repaired with the turbulence of the mists of mako that hover above the city.

    Summary

    Please note I have the series marked as not complete, but each fic IS a complete story in itself. Currently working on Part 3: "Singularity." Chapter One should be posted by end of January 2021!

    The only thing this series has in common with the real Savage Starlight is the title of the works :) Follows Joel and Ellie from the "okay" at the end of the game to the start of their romance... and beyond. How far beyond has yet to be determined!

    So, yeah... this series is Joel/Ellie AND HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE LAST OF US PART 2 -- which means it's now AU. I may not even play that game (and the only trailer I've seen is the very first teaser from 2016). I at least won't be playing it until after I'm done writing the third installment, because I don't want to be influenced by it. Plus, I know I would struggle with trying to incorporate elements of the new canon into this world which is no longer canon-friendly :(

    Also -- yes, I know in canon Ellie is a lesbian. Please don't bother to leave comments, especially nasty ones, telling me this. In my stories, she is bi. "Don't like, don't read" applies here. Thank you!

    "She wanted to claw the poisonous hatred that had been festering for so long right out of her, wanted to bleed and bleed and bleed it all out until she was free again. It seemed insurmountable. It seemed inevitable."
