Historically a Scary PlaceBeing a Black Raven was, for the most part, a lot of work. Everyone had their own job to do, their own thing that they were good at, which Crow specifically asked them to focus on. In Badger's case this was dressing up as the Black Raven itself, running across the rooftops to confuse potential customers who they might lure to the black market. This suited him just fine, because it meant that he could push his athletic prowess while also not have to talk to any of the strangers who came to find them. Badger hated talking to people he didn't know, it made him freeze up every time.Historically a Scary Place by SamCyberCat
But it can't all being speeding around in a costume, as some days it might be hours before a new customer turns up. And other days there weren't any new customers at all...
On those days, Badger would have to be banished to the roll of look-out. Which basically meant that Crow didn't have any idea what else he should be doing, so he might as well hang around to spot any potential customers or general new-comers
Slim ChancesDrake was 33% sure that he was getting out of London alive. That left roughly two thirds to account for the police tracking him down. Or worse than them, the Family.Slim Chances by SamCyberCat
He deemed his chances as slim, but not impossibly so. It's never easy to give two such large organisations the slip, but neither the police nor the Family were invincible. They had holes in their nets, holes that were just wide enough for someone as slim as Drake to fit through.
So, on such a small percentage, Drake managed to leave London and start a new life of his own.
That 33% figure would return when Drake was weighing up his chance of this life being successful. Perhaps he was not part of the Mafia any more, but people could sort of sense it about him. They saw his sharp appearance, his sly smirk, his narrow eyes, and they just knew. No one would give any chances to a man like him. They were too scared of what he might do to them. Part of Drake couldn't blame them.
But then, amongst the wandering doubt, he one day ca
Probably a Scary PlaceThe air grew much colder as the mist settled in. Gus swallowed his nerves, glancing around the dark streets and trying to make sense of where he was. Misthallery might be his home, but the fog had been getting worse since the spectre had started showing up, leaving him as lost as... as... well, something that was very lost. He'd never been good at drawing comparisons.Probably a Scary Place by SamCyberCat
...Or at talking to his friends.
He gave a loud sniff that had nothing to do with the chill, cursing how stupid he'd been earlier. It was all his fault – he could see that Marilyn had been busy and stressed dealing with the customers at her stall, but he'd hung around anyway. All he'd wanted to do was talk to her, he liked talking to Marilyn the most of all out of all the Black Ravens. But she'd been so caught up in selling stuff, she hadn't had time to talk. Even so, he'd kept trying, until she'd yelled at him. Then he got upset and ran off. It wasn't that he was scared or angry, just that he felt so stupid for mak
24th August 2014: Just a quick journal to say that I'm going away to Greece with my family next week, so I won't be around to reply to messages for a while. See you all when I get back. :3

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.
Also, I work away from home without Internet access from Friday-Monday almost every week. So I probably won't be around to answer messages during that time.
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.
