FK Fanfic: "Guitars and Roses"

I wrote "Guitars and Roses" in the week between "Ashes to Ashes" and "Last Knight," and posted it to fkfic-l a few hours before I saw LK.  I had a Hamlet quotation in my signature line at the time, and with all the fannish grief in the air -- the story was written with someone mourning Vachon in mind -- many people naturally read the "sweet prince" as a reference to their own characters (well, the factions with male leads, anyway).  In rereading this piece, I was interested to rediscover that the story's Lacroix is convinced that Tracy was in love with Vachon; I've personally since been swayed to the position that she was not, or, at any rate, was doing her best to choose not to be.  Not that that makes her loss any less.  Or changes what Lacroix would have seen.

  • an old joke about the appeal of canon

    Years ago, to shorthand my fannish interpretations and preferences, I used to say: "I'm a canon-based lifeform." ;-) Many people love total AUs and…
