Story RecapEdit

Before Tracy learns that Vachon survived "Fever", higher-ups assign her and and Nick to a case without a body.


Written as a gift for greerwatson in FK Fic Fest 2014 (released 18 August). The story was beta'd by skieswideopen. Length: 8447 words.

Written to the prompt: "Nick, his partner, their captain, other cops from canon. From a perspective other than Nick's: a police plot with vampire complications kept strictly on the side."


  • "Nick’s smile wiped a decade from an already-handsome face. Grinning, Toronto’s top homicide detective looked like one of Tracy’s younger cousins with cookies stuffed in his pockets. “If I never get the final ballistics data on the weapon Rita Scott used to murder R.H. Lo, I never have to finish the report, right?”"

Author's NotesEdit

  • "I read every “missing persons” article in the NYT digital archive from 1984 to 2014, and as many as the Toronto Star would share without a subscription. Apparently, the solved rate for missing persons cases skyrocketed spectacularly beginning in the ‘80s; here in 2014, it exceeds 99% in many jurisdictions."
  • Detectives Bollinger and Freeman come from “Love You to Death,” the case with the lingerie models. Carol Lewis is from “Curiouser and Curiouser,” where’s she’s a uniformed officer in reality and an Internal Affairs investigator in the delusion. Myra Schanke is arguably seen on screen in “Black Buddha, Part 1,” but exists mainly through off-screen references throughout the first two seasons, as Commissioner Richard Vetter does throughout third season.
  • The precinct has maintenance workers in the background in a number of third-season episodes, with particular references to a new coat of paint in “Black Buddha, Part 1” and plumbing in “Sons of Belial.” Metastasized metaphor?
