    Summary

    Phillip, a young writer with a magical gift for poetry, defies his bourgeois parents by moving to the bohemian underworld of New York. He is taken in by the whiskey-soaked artist Charles Stratton, whose party-hard life centers around the Barnum’s Circus, a world of sex, drugs, electricity and the shocking circus. Phillip falls into a passionate but ultimately doomed love affair with Anne, the Sparkling Diamond, the most beautiful courtesan in New York and star of Barnum’s Circus.

    or, a moulin rouge inspired story

    Summary

    In a society where families are divided by Higher and Lower classes, there's no guarantee they would remain separated. When socialite son, Phillip Carlyle, runs into Southern runaway, Anne Wheeler, he is struck with the realization that there's not much difference between them... apart from the color of their skin and the mass wealth that the Carlyle name brings. Deciding for himself about how he should be living his life and choosing the people he wishes to be associated with, he takes the leap and, much to his parents disapproval, starts to learn more about Anne and the life that she leads... even going as far as meeting her adoptive family, former high society associate, Charity Hallett and her outcast husband, Phineas Taylor Barnum.

    Summary

    "Impulsive and reckless is what I've come to expect from you." Phillip just dares to ghost his lips over the material of Barnum's shirt. This close to Barnum, the man's heartbeat a languid pulsing in his ears, his presence flooding Phillip's senses, Phillip finds Anne receding from his thoughts entirely.

    Barnum's laugh is humorless, more of an attempt to dislodge gravel from his windpipe than an expression of mirth. "I suppose I've given you no reason to expect any different."

    "Perhaps, but…" Phillip's fingers twine into the loose fabric on the back of Barnum's shirt. His chest swells, the topmost points of his jagged-edged anxiety slowly sanded down as he leans into the showman's body heat. "I seem to be taking after you, in that regard."

    Summary

    Boys are gross and things get a little out of hand.

    Inspired by one of the earliest forms of Biological Warfare, during the Middle Ages, victims of the bubonic plague were used for biological attacks, often by flinging fomites such as infected corpses and excrement over castle walls using catapults.

    Summary

    A sette anni, Phillip si era ritrovato rinchiuso in una lussuosa gabbia di restrizioni. Gli era stato negato ogni permesso di vivere la propria infanzia per, in cambio, aprirgli le porte di un regno che suo padre, sapeva, avrebbe apprezzato una volta cresciuto. Ma a sette anni, la curiosità è una colonia di tarli che scava buchi tra le regole degli adulti e apre passaggi segreti in cui un bambino finisce sempre per inciampare.

    Summary

    These are little fics inspired by dialogue prompts on tumblr. I will give credit to each list and their creator as they are written. If you'd like to request one, I ask that you do so on tumblr (anon is totally fine!) so that I can easily access them.

    Rating/warnings may change depending on the content as it all comes along. There will be warnings before each fic, if there are any at all.

    Summary

    Humans are like water glasses. The water, that most elusive of things, is made of memories--people, events, words--all of them negative. Most glasses are only filled halfway. Some lucky ones only sustain a drop or two. And the most unlucky of us--the Edgar Allen Poes and Vincent Van Goghs--are filled all the way to the top.
    But what happens, we wonder, when a glass overflows?

    ...

    And the circus came crumbling down.

    Summary

    It’s not as if this is the first time P.T.’s ever insisted on doing something monumentally stupid for the sake of livening up the circus before, but and it always ends the same way: P.T. scrapes by unscathed, the usual spring in his step and showman’s smile on his face, looking utterly invincible. And then—suddenly—he isn’t.

    Summary

    "Phillip." Barnum sighs. His voice adopts the soothing low tones that smooth out the frayed edges of Phillip's nerves, all traces of teasing and mischief dispelled. "It's nothing serious, I promise you. I hate seeing you get worked up like this."

    "And, I hate seeing you attempt to obfuscate and minimize the stress you put your body through for the sake of this show," Phillip fires back.
