    Summary

    At some point the silence started to get to her. This was the longest she had ever hung out with a boy, even if it was one as crude as Denji, and the awkwardness forced Asa to stoop to horrid lengths; small-talk.

    “So who's Nayuta?” She asked, recalling the name from earlier.

    “My daughter.”

    Asa nearly crashed the car.

    Summary

    Alternate title: I Thought I Had Lost You (and I (Briefly) Went Insane)

     

    “I was no help at all but…” Yosano coughed. “You’re the world’s greatest detective. I’m sure this all will be… no problem.”

    “Don’t say that,” Ranpo protested. “You’re going to be fine. You’ll still be able to help me. You’ll be okay. You’ll… be okay.”

    She wasn’t okay. She’d never be okay again.

    —————

    Some might call it barbaric. Ranpo just called it strategic. A tactical move.

    Poe had only specified that he had to figure out the killer. If the killer was already dead… well. He’d meet the requirements either way, dead killer or alive. It was better to be safe than sorry after all.

    He slowly turned to the other people, still outside of the room, staring horrified at the scene.

    “It’s your turn now.”

    He had to admit, the screams they made next were somewhat funny.

     

    Or: Ranpo thinks Yosano has died for good in Poe’s novel and then maybe goes (just a little bit) crazy to avenge her

    Alternate summary: in which Ranpo goes through all the stages of grief but stays the longest in anger.

    (Bad summaries, I know. Just look at the tags if you’re interested)

    Zeus cannot help but wonder where Beryl Grace is in the underworld. Does he hope for something better for her? He'd never wanted her to suffer. Hades is no help. Poseidon is a rude awakening.

    Summary

    Cancer had taken Harlan's wife and his son, and money had taken the rest of them - that's how he used to put it. "Money is cancer," he'd finally landed upon, on one gloomy night up in the attic. "It's freedom in a cage, Marta. Practically speaking, it's power and it's influence - but if you're not careful, it'll get in your lungs and shrivel up your organs." He'd shuddered dramatically. "Disgusting stuff. I should give it all to UNESCO and move to a home."
