FK Fanfic: "Billets Doux"

This LJ retrospective on my FK fanfiction now comes to "Billets Doux," which is one of my few stories that have never yet appeared on FKFic-L, and one of a handful to which no one has ever responded.  I wrote it in the winter of 1996, and a friend kindly recruited it for the zine Tojours Lacroix, which came out in 1999.

There isn't much to "Billets Doux," beyond a neglected line of "Fallen Idol" -- Nick says Fleur wrote to him -- but while I'm inclined to make light of it, eleven years out, and supposedly long recovered from my LC phase, well . . . re-reading the story tonight brought tears to my eyes.  If it never pleases anyone else, I'm still glad I wrote it.

  •   Title: "Billets Doux"
  •   Length: ~1,200 words
  •   Date: Published in the charity fanzine Tojours Lacroix (1999)
  •   Rating: G
  •   Summary: Lacroix muses on his loss of Fleur and how it led to his loss of Nick.
  •   Setting: Indeterminate, looking back at 1229-1247 from many centuries later
  •   Characters:   Lacroix, Nick, Fleur
  •   Quotation: "He is what is left to me of her, and his hatred is what is left to me of himself."
