    “Winchester, you’ll be working with Novak on this.”

    Dean reels, stunned. “What?” he says loudly. He can’t have heard him correctly.

    Brooklyn, New York. 1948. When a string of mysterious deaths hit the city, Private Paranormal Detective Dean Winchester is forced to team up with by-the-book police officer Corporal Castiel Novak on the case. With each new lead, their investigation takes them down a path that brings them closer to cracking a case that has haunted Dean personally for years — and closer to piecing together the puzzle buried at the heart of Castiel.

    Summary

    Boston. 2080. A city with as many shady secrets as it can hold, and maybe even a few more. The wealth gap keeps widening, crime isn't cleaning itself up anytime soon, and dark conspiracies run through banned papers in underground speakeasies. As if the threat of the Chinese atom bomb isn't enough.

    A stray comes in from the rain, and R.J. MacCready is sucked into a twisting, sordid mystery that sinks to the depths of Boston's most well kept secrets, all centered around the last girl you'd ever expect to have so many monsters in her closet.

    But, as Nick Valentine likes to say, one should always expect the unexpected. And looks can be very, very deceiving.

As rivaling families and new faces begin battling for control over her assets in the aftermath, and as Fai desperately tries to manage an increasingly dangerous workload, the line between enemy and ally blurs.

     

    Kurogane looks at him like he’s grown a few extra heads. “What is this?”

    “So?” Fai asks. “It didn’t stop you from helping me.”

    Kurogane continues to stare. “This is stupid.”

    “Isn’t it?” Fai asks.

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian picked up the fan as his eyes searched for any other evidence of someone entering his office while he had been out. Nothing else seemed out of place, save for a box of push pins that previously inhabited his drawer and now sat on the seat of a chair against the wall. Satisfied that he was truly alone, he turned his attention back to the familiar accessory in his hands. It truly was the same fan Nie Huaisang had used all those years ago. It still managed to look brand new; Wei Wuxian would never understand how his friend achieved such a feat. He turned it over in his hands a few times, examining the craftsmanship, before opening it. There, on the fine gold fabric, was a message written in black ink. I need your help. Meet tonight. 7 PM. Guanyin Temple. That was all. No other information and no signature, though Wei Wuxian didn’t need one. The fan was signature enough.

    Nie Mingjue missing, Juniors running away from home, and a man in white that brings equal amounts of heartache and comfort. Will Wei Wuxian ever get to the bottom of this mystery, or will the past he's desperately trying to run away from finally catch up to him?

    Summary

    Upon further inspection, there was a gleam in the stranger’s eyes. “Darling,” he purred, unrecognizable whether the lilt came from alcohol or interest, “I think you and I are of the same kind.”

    The same kind. The kind parents warned their children about, the kind that was deemed morally wrong. Already floating in the clouds – inebriated on liquor, nicotine and the man’s dazzling smile, Jongwoo could not bring himself to care about the implications.

    --

    Or: November of 1929. Yoon Jongwoo, cunning private detective encounters an enticing stranger, the rendez-vous leading into indecency quicker than expected. The morning after, letters upon letters arrive at his door step, invitations to work a case for somebody. For Seo Moonjo, notoriously ruthless criminal, for a person who couldn't be more dfferent to himself. At least that's what Jongwoo needed to believe.
