Fanfictions by DragonDancer5150

 Stories in chronological order by canon timeline (to be added to as new titles are published)

MCF: Madame Fate (on FFnet) (on AO3)
Summary - Based on events of game #4 in the series. The Master Detective hadn't been assigned to, nor been looking for, a case. But he found one. And something found him.

In Her Majesty's Service (on FFnet) (on AO3)
Summary - In the wake of his case in Dire Grove, the Master Detective is approached about upgrading his "honorary" position with the Royal Agency to an official one. With a twist. Semi-spoilers for the bonus chapter of Ravenhearst Unlocked re: MCF's origins.

Aftermath (on FFnet) (on AO3)
Summary - Alister's defeated at last - case closed? Not quite. There's still the unnatural brand, the dead body, the woman trapped in a storage room, and an exhausted Master Detective who'll end up back at the lunatic asylum if someone doesn't ID and vouch for him first.

Bits and Bobs

Little things that don't fit anywhere else and aren't enough for their own post. To be added to as I find stuff.


Come out of this alive.
You’re more than
what keeps you up at night.
You’re more than
capable of triumph.
(credit unknown)


I creep in my petty pace today
On a stage where I've refused to play
But the curtain went up and I couldn't get away
And the part I play is a palindrome
'Cause I've doubled back and I'm heading home
And I'm wondering if the show will ever come down

Maybe Next Year by Eben Brooks

Character: Special Agent Darnell Barrett, Master Detective
Canon: Mystery Case Files (HOS/Adventure casual game series) - Link to Wikipedia page 
Version: NA – however please see NOTES below
Canon Point: Post Game #15: The Black Veil
Age: 32
Gender: Male
NOTES: The nature of the early games was such that there was no POV character, and the tagline of the series was “You be the detective!” However, as style and the mechanics of game play have evolved over the years (first game premiered in 2005, most recent just came out a month ago), the POV as an actual character, known simply as the Master Detective, became a stronger and stronger presence through written journal entries and POV comments across the top of the screen in reaction to specific events and/or the player clicking on items or areas. For most of the series, the Master Detective has been accepted as a character in his/her own right. By and large, though, the game developers have been very careful not to “prove” the Master Detective’s gender one way or another (continuing to allow the player to imagine him/her as they choose). Fandom in general seems to have “set” the character as being female, but I’ve always had a male take on the detective, myself. The name is one I chose for him, as none is ever given in canon – the rare times a name is used, the system pulls in the player’s profile name.
