The hour of mysteries has struck. Along with it, the grand clock of time, which for centuries has relentlessly moved forward, crushing lives and futures with its long needle. That needle has turned a lot, bringing us to the end of the 19th century. Yes, the time for secrets has arrived.It arrived in the form of an envelope, a red envelope sealed with the pompous crest of a countess, yet delivered by a shabby postman to an equally shabby apartment where two self-proclaimed detectives reside. One, Lucy Moon, resonates with all the imagination the world has bestowed upon her, her eyes seeing nothing but mysteries to solve and truths to unearth from the depths where they have been buried. The other, Alistair de Saule, has eyes the color of a coal sky, gray, gray, gray, like the steel from which his heart seems to be made. His gaze is fixed on the past and the grand clock that has never stopped turning. Fixed on a past that has flown away, like a leaf in the wind. With this envelope, a great adventure is set to begin, taking them from dark and twisted corridors, under the sounds of the gears of an obscure machinery and broken hearts, to the streets of London and beyond. Far, very far into the clouds and the muck of this world. And as an inextricable web of puzzles weaves around them, leading them into a strange conspiracy, an eerie melody will commence. One of fallen angels, destroyed worlds, and monster hunters. But how far, how far will they go? To the end of time, to the brink of life.Until all the mysteries, finally, are solved.

When you first saw the offer to star in a reality show catered to your interests, you couldn't help but take it! However, when you arrive to the filming location by boat, nothing is as it was made out to seem. To make matters worse, there's 22 other people there that are just as angry as you, all being tricked with the same story. While surveying the rest of the teens, a certain someone with piercings, a skull t-shirt, and a lime green mohawk catches your eye, and not necessarily in a bad way...----------Yes, the writer of Chris x Chef is back with another TDI story! This seemed funny to me, so now it's yours to read. This is an x Reader story, so there will be usage of (y/n), as well as other stuff like that, which I'll make a key for. I'll be using they/them pronouns for this story because it makes it easier for you to imagine! Duncan may be scary, but he's not bigoted! Enjoy!!! DISCLAIMER: I DO NOT OWN ANY CHARACTERS EXCEPT THE ONE OF (Y/N). This book will follow the storyline, but other than that, this is my original work!
