Baby's First Mobsterswitched

Never was the ‘Read More’ tool more useful. Last Friday I watched too much Law and Order SVU and looked at too much Mobsterswitched. Then I started writing. 

This story is the first piece of fan-fiction I’ve finished in years, and the first I’ve done for anything Hussie produced. It’s my take on a relationship between Deadeye and Innovator, but I break with the popular idea of a tea party because, well, it didn’t quite add up with my understanding of the characters. 

Ladies and gentlemen, enjoy this story about Deadeye Detective and Pernicious Innovator.

A few words about Mobsterswitched...

… before we get started.

I promise this will be the one and only authorial post in this fanadventure, and I am making it to just lay a few things on the line.

I have been in one fandom or another since I was 13 years old, and I have never ever been involved in something as amazing as the mobsterswitched phenomenon. It started with one drabble, and from that short little flash fic there have been so many amazing things; fics, art, headcanons, discussions, etc. It’s all really, really cool, and I have loved every minute of it.

I was a little nervous (okay, okay, I was panicking, and thank you to those of you that talked me through it lol) about starting this at all, because I was afraid that by posting this stuff I would kind of cramp that style; parts of this fanadventure are going to veer off the group-established “canon”, in some cases by quite a lot. The last thing I wanted to do was make waves or get in the way of what is going on there, and while the obvious option was to just keep my ideas locked away and proceed on the path forged by everyone else, or just shut this idea down completely, I wasn’t too enthusiastic about either one of those.

So I figured I’d make this post, to explain that there are some things in this that are going to be quite different, and that it’s just … just another way to see everything! I don’t want to change the awesome noir fanon (canon? what even do we call it, anyway?) that has sort of sprung up, because I love it so much. But I do plan on changing some things, and it’s not a big deal. Just another way of looking at things. :)

So please, those of you that are writing and drawing, keep doing what you’re doing. This is a really cool fan-created idea, and I don’t want to do anything at all to change it ever. I’m going to tell this story, and what happens is going to happen, but I don’t for one minute want it to dissuade anyone from doing something they were going to do, or feeling a certain way about a character or pairing, or anything.

And that is my Big Fat Disclaimer. Your regularly scheduled fan adventure will begin shortly. :)

Day at the Races

Inspired by Magical Crawdad’s Shades of a Steel Grey Morning. I really like that idea of the Mobsterswitched cast meeting their counterparts, especially the PS’s. 

In my head I thought they’d meet at the racetrack, talk each other into oblivion, rip up their tickets when their horse came in last, then go for drinks to make each other feel better.
