FK Fanfic: "Cuts Deep"  

I wrote this story for pj1228 in the oldschoolfic winter 2011 event.  (This is the one with the Turkish bath, the blood supplier, and the teenage murder victim.)  Thanks to [personal profile] lastscorpion, [personal profile] skieswideopen and amilyn for beta-reading!  Thanks to [personal profile] celli and wiliqueen for brainstorming!

PJ is a Cousin, Dark Knightie and UFer who prefers "dark," so I found this assignment extremely challenging.  I aimed close to canon, hoping to achieve its openness to being read both ways; the crimes solved in this tale are more disturbing than my usual, and some may find them triggering, though all could have aired as written.

•  Title: "Cuts Deep" (also on AO3)
•  Length: ~11,000 words
•  Date: Oldschoolfic 02/02/11, FKFic-L 05/02/11
•  Rating: PG-13
•  Summary: Nick and Schanke solve a vicious murder that reminds Nick of a miscarriage of justice in 1885 London.
•  Characters:   Nick, Schanke, Natalie, Lacroix, Janette, Stonetree, Norma, Others
•  Quotation: "Schanke was right; Nick did know that feeling.  He took a deep breath of the clear spring night.  'We give the families closure, Schank.  And sometimes, with these high profile cases, the whole community needs that closure, too."
