    Summary

    In a world where a calamitous clash between warring deities has caused an apocalyptic "reset" in the reincarnation cycle, a now-living Manny Calavera is haunted by memories of a past life and death which no one else shares, and a powerful, secret supernatural "Touch" which threatens to drag his new life--and everyone else in it--into ruin. The consequences of an impulsive decision have invited tragedy and danger to Manny's doorstep, and now a debonair international spy investigating his involvement in the mystery is the only person that stands between Manny and the precipice of disaster.

    Summary

    Oil and Vinegar is a offside passion project set outside the Zootopian Canon and the "In Cold Blood Universe".

    Set in a 1960's Zootopia, a young Nick Wilde is tasked as an Undercover Investigator. Typically his day job is nothing exciting, filing background checks or piles of paperwork, and a divided Zootopia means usually his only clients are carnivores. However, a young, optimistic, and nosy Judy Hopps seeks out the expertise of Nick Wilde to investigate a growing criminal organization, engineering a narcotic by the name of "NightHowlers". Nick, going against his best interests, will tear the division between Carnivores and Herbivores apart by taking on Judy's case. It quickly turns out that Nick and Judy both bit off more than they can chew. Sometimes, things are best left undisturbed, and now Nick is not only caught in a high-profile case tangled with sabotage, seduction, and murder, but also a new love interest, and of all things, a bunny.

    Summary

    “Meet your costar, kid…”

    And suddenly, in yet another cramped audition room, Ash was no longer nineteen, or eighteen, or any type of teenager for that matter. Suddenly he was just a boy, nestled between peeling theater seats, legs outstretched and eyes awed towards the Japanese film ahead of him. The subtitles flickered by with each shaky rerun. A baby-faced kid projected past the curtains.

    “…Eiji Okumura.”

    Suddenly, Ash Callenreese was starstruck.

    The trials and tribulations of acting with your muse; Hollywood, 1985.

    Summary

    Light believes Kira has no more enemies. He has conquered and brought his usurpers to their knees. Kira's brand new world will thrive with L out of the picture. The Kira Task Force is a farce. But Light didn't count on someone stepping out of the shadows to challenge Kira with such boldness and tenacity, and who has a diabolic plan to seed his vengeance against Kira in such a way that Light's humiliation of L won't compare to what Light will suffer.

    A killer is challenging Kira and murdering people in a unique pattern. During the LABB Murder Case, "Beyond Birthday" targeted L, now, after faking his death, he has his sights on Kira, and evokes his right to kill L's killer. Attacked and targeted at every turn, Light must rise to the challenge of Beyond Birthday's machinations, or everything in his brand new world will crumble!

    Meanwhile, another threat loons on the horizon from a different source. He wants Kira defeated, but also Beyond Birthday humiliated and dead. History is about to catch up to them in separate ways and they are thrown into a game of life and death—a series of deadly games—that could be more than they can handle alone!

    Summary

    A Canadian raccoon private detective finds himself seeking asylum after blowing the lid wide open on the criminal underground back home. Finding himself in the metropolis of Zootopia, he encounters a trailblazing hare police officer who's starting to fall out of love with her line of work, and her partner (in more ways than one), a fox who quit the force out of a sense of spiritual urgency -- but who didn't have a backup plan. One fears their past, one their present, and one their future, and as a strange new threat comes upon the city, the three come together to try to solve the question: how do you help make the world a better place when you can't even help yourself?

    Summary

    Pools of heinous blood and streaming rivers of pure water have nothing in common. Well, except for the fact that they maintain the lives of many, as well as being able to destroy those lives all at the same time.

    It’s the same with people.

    They’re able to comfort and soothe the soul, whilst still having the ability to desecrate and dismantle it.

    Which is why we shouldn’t mess with them.

    Why we shouldn’t mess with the smartest around.

    And there’s always someone like that wherever you go. Whether it be in the mafia where someone known as a demon prodigy lies, in the government where someone with exceptional knowledge can be found, or even in the streets of St. Petersburg where someone disguised as a normal citizen manipulates and exchanges information with empty shells.

    You can never be sure of who you’re dealing with, which is why you should watch your step, and be vigilant with those you choose to trust.

    Summary

    It's been a year since the case of my missing brother was solved - and things haven't gotten any easier.

    It was supposed to be a relaxing time. A vacation to a ritzy hotel with free food sounds great, right? In this golden dining room, filled to the brim with strange characters, I had hoped my only worries would be dealing with day-to-day life.

    But the thing is, I’m Luigi, and I’m not allowed to relax.

    A precious artifact has been stolen from Wario and we’re all trapped here until someone can figure out who did it.

    It certainly won’t be me!
