    Summary

    Arthur learns his brother was killed in a traffic accident, and finds himself drawn back across the Atlantic to the country and the home he left behind.

    Completed and edited work, totals about 23k words. Will post chapters roughly every couple of days. (Because I'm too impatient to post only one a week!)

    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

    Ten years after the Maxwell Demon fake assassination stunt and the later disappearance of the star himself, Curt Wild releases an album that drudges up all multitude of ghosts of the past, and in a whirlwind of nostalgia and tugs at heart strings, he finds himself flung back in the orbit of a man he once knew quite well.

    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

    Curt Wild and Brian Slade dressed up as Bunny Manders and AJ Raffles for a costume ball. If you know what happens when these two drink champagne together, you might want to take cover; Curt looks like he could throw his glass any second.

    Summary

    Welcome to President Reynolds' America, AD 2017. It isn't a pretty picture. As bad as things were in 1984, they've gotten even worse. Take a tour of a 2017 even worse than the real one was, courtesy of a 40-something museum professional who stumbles across a letter addressed to Oscar Wilde inside an old book. As she explores the mystery of the letter (which, among other things, describes a UFO), she finds herself stumbling across some names familiar to us, but unknown to her, names like Curt Wild and Brian Slade....

    This was my July CampNaNo project from 2017. The first chapter opens with a lengthy Author's Note to explain a few important things about this fic in more detail. Please read that note before beginning to read the fic. (General advance warning, however: this is not my usual fluff. It is not, perhaps, as grim is it rightfully should be, but neither is it warm-and-fluffy.)

    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

    Arthur tries not to hear Curt sniffling on the other end of the line. He bites at a fingernail, reflecting that he’s supposed to leave with Ray and the Flaming Creatures any minute, though his plans may be changing, too. He can’t very well say no to Curt, not when Curt’s suffering like this - when Curt needs Arthur. No one has ever needed Arthur before...

    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

    Never trust what you hear through a door. Len and Gakupo need to learn this lesson. (Or someone should suggest that Miku and Rin need to be more careful what they say while squeeing.)

    I was trying to come up with a fic to fulfill the NaNo gift request for Yemi_HIkari when I was attacked by this plot bunny and had to write it down. ;)

    The odd thing is, until that plot bunny came along, I'd have called it practically sacrilege to combine these two fandoms...

    Summary

    Maybe that’s just what Arthur gets for seeing Curt without being high; maybe the whole glam scene doesn’t make much sense and can’t possibly be that satisfying if you’re too sober. He should have made sure to be on something, like he was the first time he slept with Curt. Or maybe it’s true what people say, and you should be very careful about meeting your heroes…

    Summary

    Mesmo após meses em tour com Brian, uma das muitas coisas que deixavam Curt estupefato eram todas as coisas extras e superficiais que os cercavam, em todos os momentos e de todos os jeitos possíveis.
