    Summary

    “People like us,” Logan had once remarked to Virgil. “Are statistical anomalies.”

    (Almost) Everyone in the world has powers. As for those who don’t, well, they’re such a small part of the population - only 0.04% - why would anyone care about them?

    Ever since he realized what people mean when they call him Powerless, Virgil Sanders has tried to fight back against the system that oppresses people like him, Patton, and Logan. When Patton’s bakery is targeted in a hate crime, he finally snaps. With the help of a mysterious sponsor, Virgil becomes a villain, ready to remake a broken society. The only thing standing in his way is the world’s most Powerful (and infuriatingly charming) superhero: The Prince, who is hiding the fact that his gilded life isn’t as perfect as it may seem.

    Summary

    Coming to Patton’s café/bakery has become routine for detective Logan Sanders and his dorky partner Roman Prince. Patton makes all of them feel cared for and welcome, however Logan feels quite a bit more than comfort when gets to spend time with the cheerful man. Knowing he cannot have Patton is made less painful by the knowledge that his social awkwardness would have probably not allowed Logan to approach Patton about his feelings anyway. While being quite fearless and efficient when it comes to his job, Patton has an effect on him that leaves Logan a nervous mess. Thankfully the Pâtissier is the kindest person he knows. Also, Roman always has his back and is willing to offer cuddles and comfort whenever it is needed.

    Logan's comfortable routine is broken abruptly however, as he discovers bruises on Patton’s fair skin and slender wrists he could hardly have received from his customary clumsiness.

    Meanwhile his partner Roman has his own demon to fight, which comes in the form of a pretty little delinquent, who seemed to have been pulled into a street gang quite against his will. Roman is determined to help the strange young man. It would be so much easier though if he just stopped hissing at him!

    Summary

    Gerard's your typical college drop out.

    While Frank, on the other hand, isn't quite as average. He's a demon, hundreds of years old. He loves his job, really he does. He's on Hell's Guard, after all.

    So, how hard would the world shake if the two meet?
