    Summary

    Here you will find a collection of short stories following different characters as music gets them through their days before, during and after the Fury Road Revolution.

    Even though the world fell, life is still what happens while you are listening to music. What songs survive the apocalypse? What does a revolutionary hum to herself? What treasures await in a long buried box of records? What notes rise from the piano in the Vault?

    Summary

    Modern AU, small town physiotherapist clinic. Fury’s the physio, Max is a drifter with a gammy leg. Silly fluffy shippy nonsense with some sad bits and a pretty solid soundtrack. No car chases or shoot ‘em ups (all drama of that nature occurs off-stage).

    Kind of a follow on from The Shipping Forecast, but no prior reading necessary.

    Summary

    This is a story about women saving each other by helping each other survive.
    Stolen from her homeland, Furiosa must learn to survive as a captive wife of Immortan Joe. Her dreams of home will stay just that unless she can apply the lessons of her Mothers and learn to bond with her new teacher and fellow wives.
    Note: while sexual assault is obviously a theme of this work, all mentions of it are kept vague and focused on its impact on its victims. The intent of the work is show how Furiosa developed as a person during and as a result of her captivity and escape attempts. This fic is primarily gen. M rating is primarily for violence. F/F tag is primarily for Furiosa's mothers' romantic relationship in flashbacks.

    Summary

    Writer's meme asking for something before the beginning of my current fic. Since I was working on Contiguity, and that starts at the earliest things Furiosa remembers, I went to the very beginning.

    Every good sword needs heat and pressure to become flexible and strong. Furiosa was given more than enough to become the steel that would be known as "Bag of Nails," Immortan Joe's trusted Imperator... and betrayer.
