Their third night in Rose Creek, Goody decides to tell that story. With whiskey taking the edge off impending doom for all of them, the two of them couldn't be more obvious and none of the others seem to care, Billy waits out Goody's exorcism of a ghost by outrageous story and makes up his mind on staying in Rose Creek no matter what.
- Part 1 of from the ashes
Getting married on a drunken dare made perfect sense when they'd gotten together over an equally drunken bet, especially when almost everyone that mattered, who knew about them, was there when Ian's brother issued the dare. They'd been to hell and back a few times, separately and together, they still had one more issue looming. Don and Alan have absolutely no clue they've even met let alone have been together for sixteen years. Oh and a serial sniper with a boatload of copycats to get out of the way first.
primarily aftermath, recovery and rebuilding of Rose Creek. Prone to being reordered as things get done.
Pairings: Goodnight/Billy, bits of Teddy/Red Harvest
A few prominent background OCs & some random orphans for propriety's sake eventually. Period typical attitudes/conventions present though not necessarily subscribed to by characters, awareness, workarounds, worry about present.
It was quick, distant, rough, they both came quickly and slept back to back, the whole thing felt deeply impersonal.
How Billy ended up sleeping with Goody and how it evolved from just being sex.
