StringsClive swallowed the feelings of self-consciousness as he stood in the middle of the room. He doesn't find doing so particularly hard, given that acting had become a large part of his life up until now. Not that he was particularly brilliant at it, but he'd been... passable.Strings by SamCyberCat
Passable enough to fool Dimitri into thinking that he didn't hate him and also to be able to fool Layton into thinking he might have been “Future Luke” for a little while.

I am happy for my work to be featured in most groups that ask. However I do NOT want my work to be featured in anti groups (i.e. groups against a certain character, series or pairing) or groups that have anti-yaoi/yuri/het rules (or other rules in favour of prejudice). Thank you for understanding.
Please ask before taking any of my work to post on other websites. This includes for use on Tumblr. I have my own account there and would prefer to post my work myself. If there's anything here that you particularly want me to post on Tumblr then let me know and I will, since most of my older stuff isn't posted there.

Professor Layton Spoilers: My dA account will contain spoilers for almost all of the Professor Layton games, including PL6. These may be posted openly anywhere on my submissions, journals or in conversations in the comments section. So please tread with caution if you're avoiding spoilers for any of the games.
