Mobsterswitched

Welcome to Metropolis Central, a gritty, dark city on the line between miles of yawning desert and nowhere, clustered around a dirty river that flows lazily through the city and pumps lifeblood throughout.

Welcome to Metropolis Central, where the Twilight Scoundrels run a bootlegging racket as crazy and cruel as their leader, Pernicious Innovator.

Welcome to Metropolis Central, where your team, the Meddlesome Company, are chasing down the Scoundrels and trying not to get killed in the process.

Your name is Dead-eyed Detective, and you and the Company need to pose as a team, because this is Metropolis Central, and shit just got real.

((So I am afraid this art post comes with a bit of sad news: Unfortunately, mobsterswitch has been discontinued. As such, I thought it was unfair to not post the guest art I received for the story, so here are the last 3 panels!

Page 20 was drawn by poposite, page 22 was drawn by Liz, and page 23 was drawn by selandrawscrap! They are all lovely pages, with great art, and I’m bummed that I can’t use them, however I didn’t think it fair to keep them hidden away on my harddrive forever.

Now, despite being “cancelled”, the author of this blog really enjoyed the story. In fact, that is the reason this blog has been cancelled: she was putting so much time and effort into the backstory and all that that it really started less resembling fanfiction/a fan project, and more resembling an original work! Soit just became an original work, which can be found here going forward, and under the tag “Faraldo City Private Investigators”.

Right now, act 1 has been taken down from broader reading to finish up the last round of proof-reads and edits before publication. When the book is finally published (to Kindle only, right now), it will be announced both on Liz Lucas’s blog, as well as this blog. That will be the final post for this blog.

Again, guys, I’m really sorry that this is what happened, but all things considered I think it might work out a little better for everyone! Thanks to all the readers, the artists, and the people who followed this and were interested - you all are great!))

DD: I think now might be a good time to go, Heavy.HB: C’mon, boss, maybe we’ll wait a while, take Scout with us. The four of us could go, even.DD: I hardly think Scout or I needs to attend for this case; it’s well within your and CD’s range of abilities.HB: Doesn’ feel right, splitting the team up for some stupid necklace.DD: It’s a brooch, and I appreciate the sentiment, but the day is young and I’d like to stay in the office in case of any calls.HB: … S’pose that makes some sense. Alright.

Anonymous asked: Please don't let this turn into a dead blog. Although I guess in some cases it can't be helped... I can't think of any commands to recommend and I can't really draw a guest picture, but I'd like to let you know I think this is an awesome idea.

((oh it will not! (un?)fortunately, i am nearing college graduation, so between job hunting and studying for boards and all of that, updates may come a little slowly for a while. hopefully i will pick the pace back up soon, though!

until then, for all your mobsterswitch needs, you can just track the ‘mobsterswitch’ tag on tumblr. there has been some great fanfic, and some wonderful art drawn recently. :) ))

==> CD: Make a tower out of doughnuts! 
Oh man, this is pretty much the best idea you have had all morning! You are an architect, like the kind that make buildings!
Look at those turrets!
You wonder if you might be able to fit cannons on those majestic pastry spires.

What time is it, 9:30? 10?
Waking up seems unlikely for Scout!
Guess you’re still CD then! Which isn’t a bad thing at all!
