    Summary

    Jesper had gone into a casino three months ago. He’d only placed one bet, but one was enough.

    He’d come back to their then-hideout, bug-eyed, hands fiddling with anything they could reach. He told Inej that he’d had a relapse. She remembered how his mouth had looked as it formed the word, how painful it seemed to be to admit it. His hands wouldn’t stop shaking.

    In the last two years, Inej had learned to run on rooftops like they were high wires. She’d learned to slide her knives in the soft tenderness under ribs, to wear black so she could move in and out of buildings unnoticed. She’d learned how to plant her knee into a groin and how to bite back. And now her hands were shaking and her neck was stiff from sleeping in a corner after being too afraid of a bed.

    Relapse. The word was coppery in her mouth.

    Summary

    An AU in which Clint and Natasha meet for the first time as children, far before their futures have been fixed.

     

    So he sneaks down from the tree and creeps around the side of the house, where he lies in wait for half an hour before he hears the clatter of pans from the kitchen. Then he rolls his sleeves up, clenches his fists, puts on his best scary face, and when the girl opens the back door and steps out, Clint leaps right in front of her.

    Then his plan fails, because instead of running away from him, she looks as scary as he's trying to be and punches him in the nose.

    Summary

    Inej had had no plan when she ducked into the coffee shop. She had spotted Aart following her and thought only to get around more people in case he almost certainly started something. As she approached the door, she spied a man sitting near the door, apparently alone, with a textbook open in front of him, and made a split second decision to hope that he was a decent person and would help her out.

    “Hi,” she said, dropping into the seat across from him. He looked up at her, eyes wide. “Sorry, pretend to be my boyfriend?”

    Summary

    Because all of my books-verse fics take place in the same "headcanon" -- that just tends to be how I write -- I thought I'd gather them here so that readers can follow a sequence if they so choose.

    Summary

    A love song. Who the hell was listening to such whimsy, amongst the murderers and the thugs of the Barrel?
    (You are, and you’re the cruelest of them all.)
    Kaz scowled into the darkness of the room. It’s not like he had much choice, unless he opened the window and shot the singer.

    ---

    Most sensible people avoid the Barrel during major celebrations, out of a healthy sense of self-preservation and fondness for their limbs and wallets. Kaz, on the other hand, does not have the luxury of avoiding everyone else's good cheer. What he does have is a useless gang full of teenage idiots, an irritatingly persistent three-legged dog, a few memories he'd rather forget, and a time limit.
