The resistance has started to swing upwards in strength as Azkadellia’s iron fist begins to rule down upon the land. Cain’s been running errands with the desperation of a man whose life is starting to slip away from him. He can barely keep Adora and Jeb in protections’ grasp any longer and he lives in fear for it.

He roams the streets of Central City and no longer knows who’s foe or friend, ally or enemy. He’s had information come through the pipeline about a genius who might have all the answers to stop this. That’s why he’s here in this dingy bar, stalking through the back halls in order to make progress and to find Ambrose, the man with all the answers.

“He’s this way,” some goon says with a lamentable tone. “Don’t know what you plan to get out of him, though.”

When they open for the door for Cain to see, it all clicks in a second-flat why Ambrose hasn’t got a single answer that can help them save the O.Z.

“Hi there! The name’s Glitch!” the dark-haired, zipper-headed man brightly chirps. “Wow! They really don’t lie about sending out for the good stuff, huh? What’s your name?”

Cain glances at the guard by the door, bowing his head low as hope starts to bleed from every pore of his body. “Where’d you find him?”

“They let him loose in the wild, hoping the vultures would pick at him.”

“Well, might as well do the same, he’s no good to us,” Cain grunts, trying not to look this Glitch straight in the eye seeing as he doesn’t know that he could stand to look and have his resolve flicker. “The whole goddamn realm’s gone to the wolves. And he’s no use. We have to keep looking for an answer.”

In retrospect, Cain will wish he looked harder under his nose, but at the time all he saw was a zipper and a lost man attached to it.

Rating: PG-13
Disclaimer: God, if they were mine, I'd have made this canon.
Summary: Ambrose never thought he could be so lucky to fall in love not once, but twice and be loved back twice as much. This does not last.

DG was the best bet because any of the other possibilities were just far too fond of guns and swords and enacting revenge in the name of family. )

This time, to avoid a questioning the likes he’d gotten after his date with Mara, he snuck in the bedroom window, some reversal of every teenager’s rebellious phase. )

Rating: PG-13
Disclaimer: If I did own them, they'd be pretty angry I did this, huh?
Summary: Cain's one mistake was never letting Ambrose live it down.
Notes: Yes, it's genderswitch, so if that's not your thing, you might want to shy away. This is a sequel to The first story, in which Ambrose was a woman and no one really noticed anything was different. You can find Part One here! [livejournal.com profile] kseda is a darling for looking this over!

Summary: The Witch won't rest until she has the O.Z. in darkness, no matter how she must do it, no matter how long it takes.
Rating: PG-13 to R.
Notes: This acts as an AU to the entire Tin Man series and hinges on just one question: "What if DG hadn't let go?" Fifteen annuals pass and while some things may remain the same, many is different.

Well, here we are with 50,000+ words, a hell of an adventure, and thank you to everyone who read. Your comments meant the world to me. Because I'm a sucker and can't bear to let it go, there is an offer for more within this 'verse at the end. I hope everyone enjoyed the ride as much as I did.

The Longest Battle 8/8

EXTREME thanks to [livejournal.com profile] blackletter for being a wonderful & efficient beta. Well, here we are, close to the end.

CHAPTER ONE: In which DG holds on, Zero takes matters into his own hands, Adora Cain is a casualty, Ambrose is given a lifetime of glitches, and Jeb Cain gets into Ambrose's bed before his father does.
CHAPTER TWO: In which the search for the Mystic Man begins, Cain makes failed attempts at bonding, Jeb hides well, and a tentative agreement is made between Ambrose and Cain.

And then Cain could only wonder at the timing and whether it was ‘goodbye’ in more words than one. )
