    Summary

    ANNOUNCEMENT, 6 May 2021: As many of you know, I made this work inaccessible months ago in order to expand it to novel length and seek publication both in light of your enthusiastic feedback over the years and in light of the fact that the original novel by Fitzgerald entered the public domain in January 2021. Now, I'm pleased to say that The Pursued and the Pursuing, in its new novel-length form, will be coming out later this year from the traditional publishing imprint of DartFrog Books (DartFrog Blue). I have therefore reduced the first four chapters of this work to brief teaser snippets and emptied the content of the latter two instead of deleting them so as to preserve the comments. As it is now more than double its original length, there will be a significant amount of content in the novel that you have not seen before. Watch this space (and my Tumblr).

    UPDATE, 7 October 2021: The book was released about a week ago, 9/28/21. Given that this is AO3, you will need to visit my Tumblr (tag: "the pursued and the pursuing") for ordering links!

    Summary

    Somebody broke me once, Love was a currency
    A shimmering balance act, I think that I laughed at that
    And I saw your face and hands, Coloured in sun and then
    I think I understand

    ~~**~~

    This was different. Those other times, love had burnt like an uncontrollable fire, consuming everything and everyone in its path and burning itself out in the process. It was all consuming, a fire they had lit under his skin that turned everything it touched to ash and ruin. But with V… with V it was different. It was…. Warmth

    Summary

    For V, loneliness is an insidious corruption, an endless sickness. For Johnny, loneliness is a way of life, a deliberate method of self preservation. In the aftermath of an unimaginable collision, two people with nothing left to lose find themselves clinging to one another for salvation. For them, deliverance and desire are two sides of the same coin; a coin they are both watching spin, waiting to see how it falls.
