"What do you want," Tommy asked, looking at the shadow with his eyes, watching it as it paused to a stop in front of him, its large black beak turning slightly to the side.
Its beak opened only a crack, and human screaming of men and women, children and infants, leaked out. Screaming, and sobbing, and maniacal laughing that all filled Tommy's ears with a rotten, disgusting feeling, and replacing the ticking of Toni's clock- loud enough to wake the whole neighborhood, yet only wrecking havoc upon Tommy.

For Camp NaNoWriMo, I had to write 10,000 words in 30 days. The result is two short stories in one. Here they are. Disappearance is a world class thief with ragdoll-like superpowers, and he has his eyes on the Nano Wrimo Diamond. Follow him as he encounters many world building...er, I mean, colorful distractions along the way, meeting up with basic characters that I'll flesh out in future stories...er...complex human beings who can't be boiled down to one or two character traits, and flop flop flop all the way to the bank (figuratively; the diamond is in a museum)! Just think of Disappearance as Male!Catwoman and you'll be all set.

This is the follow up to "A Fairy Out of Her Tale - Dear Diary". Can probably be read on its own, but it's not recommended.
Nessa is a fairy who lost her powers because she killed her step-father. Only, her tale is not so straight-forward as that. Demons are out there doing whatever they want and destroying the world because angels can't be bothered to stop them. So it's up to the fairies, dwarves, giants, shape-shifters and merefolk to do the right thing and fight the war nobody wanted or asked for. And then survive to tell the tale...
