That's right, friends and neighbors, a month between the demise of one
computer and the rise of the next and I've worked on no less than *four*
separate stories! Time to start posting a bit of what I've done...
By FyrDrakken <FyrDrakken@...
Rating: R/NC17, for language, eventual smut, and nasty adult situations.
**WARNING**: This fic portrays an abusive relationship. Sensitive or
easily offended readers be advised.
Archive: Once completed, the whole thing goes up on my newly transferred
fic archive site at www.wolverineandrogue.com/fyrdrakken/ also to the
WR Fanfic Archive and X-Men Movie Fanfic Archive. Others just ask first
and permission will no doubt be given!
Classification: Angst, eventual smut. Logan/Marie, Marie/Remy,
Logan/female in no particular order.
Series: Unrelated to anything else Ive written or plan to write, and
once you get a few scenes into this youll be glad...
Disclaimer: Lots of corporations like Fox and Marvel, and people like
Bryan Singer and Hugh Jackman and Anna Paquin, hold more rights in the
characters and settings I'm playing with than I do. But I'm even more
broke than Marvel, so I'm not worth the time and trouble of suing... The
only "profit" I'm getting out of this is getting the demons out of my
head without resorting to my family's traditional substance abuse, serial
marriages and/or self-mutilation...
Feedback: Questions, comments and snide remarks directed to
> will receive guaranteed responses. Messages sent to
a list may go unnoticed indefinitely, me being on so many now that I've
had to go "no mail" on most of them. ;-) Constructive criticism always
welcome, since if there's a problem in something I've written I *really*
want to know about it so I can fix it!
Thanks: To all those whose feedback on my three prior stories (and
repeated requests and demands for sequels!) have given the incentive to
continue to lose sleep slaving over an overheating laptop! And again to
jenn for her betaing and AIM encouragement...
Soundtrack and quotations: To those who might be interested in such
things, I wrote part of the opening pages of this story while listening
to angry Swedish chicks (Drain S.T.H. _Horror Wrestling_), part while
listening to the best of Enya (_Paint the Sky With Stars_), and part
while listening to Danzig. Betcha cant tell where I switched CDs... ;-D
(I think I have proven to my own satisfaction that the music Im hearing
while writing doesnt do that much to affect the mood of the fic thus
produced.) With that being said, my quotes and lyrics collection is still
stuck on the hard drive of my defunct laptop, so my choice of
mood-setting quotes has been mostly limited to two albums. Tools
_Lateralus_ is beautifully layered with haunting lyrics sung through
clenched teeth, and Linkin Parks _Hybrid Theory_ is anger and pain
yowled into the radio waves. They fit the story lyrically, but dont feel
compelled to listen to either or both albums to provide an actual
"soundtrack" to this story. (Unless, of course, youre a nu-metal fan...)

and feeding bloody walls. I've done horrifying things with salad tongs.
It's really eaten into my social life."
