    Summary

    Arthur Stuart is given an assignment to investigate the disappearance of a fellow journalist. He quickly concludes that she disappeared because of something she learned as she worked on her own story, a retrospective on the most infamous defection in American history. But can he find out what she learned without meeting the same fate? And without ruining his still somewhat wobbly new relationship with Curt Wild, whose rock career is beginning to revive?

    It is quite crucial that you watch "Hail, Caesar!" before reading this if you ever intend to watch the movie at all. The very first chapter gives stuff away. Seriously, big spoilers. And it's streaming on Netflix right now, so there's no excuse, right? ;) The notes on the first chapter contain a link to the summary of the first part in this series, in case you skipped it due to its triggering content.

    Summary

    This series reviews recommended LGBTQ films. I have tried to structure the reviews so that they give the reader sufficient information about the type of content and possible presence of triggers without spoiling the film.

    Summary

    August 1965. At the Eel Pie Hotel, Mandy pierces Jack Fairy’s ears with a needle, and kisses him as a pearl of blood slips down his neck and sinks into the white lace collar of his blouse.

    Summary

    "If only you'd come back to me,
    If you laid at my side,
    Wouldn't need no mojo pin,
    To keep me satisfied."

    Curt Wild's life is a fragmented mess, and is best told in pieces. Set mainly in and around Berlin.

    Summary

    In the wake of a violent attack at a Curt Wild concert, Arthur Stuart quits his job at the Herald. He ends his final piece for the Herald (a first-hand, stream-of-consciousness column about the attack) with a plea to Brian Slade to contact Curt and ease his suffering. Arthur, of course, is also on hand to help Curt get through this tough time, but the more time passes, the more he wishes he hadn't quit his job after all, because there's so much about the attack that no one is writing about...

    (I was really hesitant to post this, for obvious reasons, but it's the start of a series, and I'm dying to post the second part, so I had to post it. I'll put up a summary (in a Google doc or something) of this along with part two for anyone who would be triggered by discussions of mass shootings.)

    Summary

    Teenage runaway Arthur Stuart is helped out by a mysterious woman calling herself "the Doctor" when his luggage is stolen. She also gives him a ride to a nearby planet where his idols, Brian Slade and Curt Wild, will soon be holding a major concert. There, they run into the Doctor's old friend, Ace McShane, and the two of them decide to linger awhile, because it seems as though much more is brewing than just a rock concert...

    As this is an AU for "Velvet Goldmine" wherein all characters were born in the far distant future on other worlds, no knowledge of "Velvet Goldmine" is necessary to follow the story. And as "Velvet Goldmine" is a very R-rated movie, the characters (well, mostly just Curt) swear a lot, and it would just be too OOC if they don't swear here, so please don't read if f-bombs bother you. (But I promise there's no swearing from the "Doctor Who" characters!)

    Summary

    Anno Domini 1415, towards the end of October, an army of miserable Englishmen trudges onwards through the fields of France. Among the boys with the baggage train is young Arthur, former squire to the late, lamented Falstaff. One evening, he is surprised to see that one of the king's soldiers is the handsome minstrel, Curt, whose antics had so appealed to him back in the taverns of London.

    (With many apologies to William Shakespeare.)

    Summary

    Just three short vignettes looking at our male leads* in the years before they arrived at the job in which we came to know and love them. Each one gets his own chapter, naturally.

    Inspired by the Police song whose title I borrowed for this fic. ;)

    *I didn't do one for Mandy because it was the late '60s, and societal expectations regarding women working were so different then. And also because her "job" is somewhat nebulous. (Wife of a rock star is not really a job, y'know?)

    Summary

    Arthur's never been the kind of guy who was well understood by those around him, and he can't speak his mind very well to clear up misconceptions. That just makes him all the more surprised when Curt Wild suddenly joins him for a drink...

     

    This is sort of a character study: every time I watch the movie, I'm more and more struck by how very awkward Arthur is in conversation, with the aching understanding that my own version of Arthur has never really shared that extreme social awkwardness. So this is just a short get together fic with a focus on Arthur's social awkwardness.

    He shows up at Arthur’s house three days later with a guitar case.

    AND THEN THEY GET. IT. ON. Seriously. That's all this is.
