    Summary

    As long as he could remember, Arthur had always known there were monsters living under his bed. He was barely able to talk the first time he’d seen a furry hand rising up—but he’d been capable enough to scream out for Mum before hiding his head under the covers and hoping it wouldn’t get him. Another day, he’d only heard scraping and scratching, but as his wails brought the sound of footsteps running towards his room, Arthur had peeked out of the covers enough to see something blue and sparkling dive back under the bed.

    (Based on an "adopt a fanfiction" prompt on the NaNoWriMo forums last year, posted by Cody_Thomas, starting "Imagine your OTP: One is an abused child, the other is the monster that lives under their bed." But I mixed it up a little, so it's not just one monster under the bed...]

    Summary

    Early summer, 1984. Everything seemed to be as normal as it can be in a newspaper office in an election year, until the arrival of a surpassingly pretty summer intern. Which might not have been a problem for Arthur Stuart, if said intern hadn't attached himself to Arthur's side and decided to be his new best friend. (Or possibly even more than that.) Still, the situation was far from permanent -- he'd have to leave again in the fall! -- so it didn't become intolerable until the two of them were ordered to go cover the Democratic National Convention...

    Summary

    Three versions of an AU in which the rooftop scene was merely Arthur's fantasy, and he has to accept that reality when he and Curt finally do meet in 1984.

    The first two were written to be a Yuletide treat, but I didn't feel like either version quite fit the request, so I didn't turn either one in. (The third was written much later, and is kind of over-the-top.) Further explanation provided in the notes.

    Summary

    Arthur had banished the ghosts of his past from his waking hours, had kept them at bay even through the fateful assignment that forced him to recall the life he'd left behind. He had fought to keep hold on the menial but clean existence he'd carved out for himself an ocean away. Until the moment he choked on the surprise slipped into his damn beer...

    Summary

    Rumors that Curt Wild has gotten involved with a teen heartthrob actor spur Arthur into starting work on a book about glam rock that will give him an excuse to go looking for Curt. Once he finds him, though, that's when things start getting complicated.

    This was the second "Velvet Goldmine" fic I wrote, right before I wrote "The Stars are Falling." It's just taken me a long time to get it polished up for posting.

    Summary

    Curt Wild will be performing live on New Year's Eve, 1979, but Arthur Stuart--still relatively new in New York--has a girlfriend and a fear of returning to his glam days, so he doesn't think he should go see his erstwhile idol. (But you know he will anyway!)

    Summary

    Just a few months after the tenth anniversary of the hoax in which Brian Slade appeared to be shot on stage, articles appear in newspapers across the world announcing that Brian has died of natural causes. Arthur Stuart isn't sure what to think of the story, until the morning news shows feature interviews reminiscing on the late singer's career, and one of those interviewed is Tommy Stone...

    (Yes, the "M" rating is just for language, btw.)

    Summary

    After a demented version of a "meet cute" outside the bar where he met up with Curt Wild, Arthur Stuart finds his world spiraling down into hell. He loses his job and his apartment, the girl he met on the street pretty much abducts him...and that's only the beginning. Eventually, all Arthur can do is wonder how in the world his life has taken this bizarre turn. It's like something in a film. Unfortunately, the film’s genre quickly went from ‘bad romantic comedy’ to ‘cheap bawdy comedy.’ But until it strays into ‘low budget psychological horror,’ he figures he'll be okay...

    Really, this is kind of nuts. I came up with it at the end of NaNoWriMo (first 8k words written during NaNo, in fact) thus it was the product of a fried brain. (Or a boiled one. I came up with it while in a bath that was too hot...)

    Whatever you do, please don't take it seriously.

    Summary

    As the 1984 election starts to swing into gear, President Reynolds is finally starting to be criticized for his administration's acts of censorship, and he brings in new foreign aides to help him deal with the situation. When Arthur Stuart goes to cover the president's speech, he is so outraged by the speech made by one of those aides that he asks a question that just might be the biggest mistake of his life...

    Summary

    After it was over, dozens upon dozens of books were written about the romance between Curt Wild and Brian Slade, some pretending to be fact, others barely fiction. Only one of those books tried to represent both men fairly, rather than demonizing one of them. Ten years after the end of the affair, the author is being pressed to write a sequel. But now that he knows what's happened to them since, Arthur Stuart doesn't want to write the sequel his editor wants....

    (I didn't originally intend this to be quite so centered around Arthur, but the story required it.)

    Summary

    Between and behind the scenes, a series of vignettes giving new glimpses into the life of Brian Slade, his lovers and his fans, even after his career dies. For the "Four Little Words" prompt challenge, a collection of 47 fics of 100, 200, 300, 400 and 500 words. Now complete!

    This is the first time I've tried actually writing for Brian; I hope I've been able to approach something resembling an accurate portrayal. I've only listed the four relationships represented in the most chapters, in descending order regarding number of chapters. Fics are in movie order, rather than chronological. After the movie, they continue to be out of chronological sequence, but hopefully it's easy to tell when each fic is taking place. (The "Suicide Attempt" tag is only for a single chapter. You can probably guess who and why.)

    Summary

    Curt Wild and Arthur Stuart have been living together for more than three years now in (relative) happiness. But after a particularly bad argument, Curt storms out of the apartment in a fit. When he returns the next morning, there's a note in his pocket that reads "Call about the boy." But Curt doesn't remember who the note came from, or what it's talking about...

    (Reminder: / is for romance, & is for friendship.)
