Title: I Wish - Chapter 1A - A Hardcore Morning, Innit? (5/20)
Pairing: Peter/Carl
Rating: PG...some language
Genre: Alternate realities: starts a few yers back (approx. 2008), then splits into two alternate timelines.
Summary: What would happen if both Peter and Carl were granted a wish that would change the reality of where they are, and who they are, in regards to each other.
Teaser: It had been the two of them, and things had gone a bit off. He’d gone and fallen asleep on that matters, and Peter, he’d come over, laid down next to him, wrestled about as he always does, his legs flailing about even in sleep.

Title: Coming Clean

Pairing: Peter/Carl

Genre: "Stalker fic" turned "Hostile work environment fic" turned "Twisted romance"... AU (quite obviously!)

Rating: No major warnings needed for this part, which - believe it or not - also happens to be the final part of this series. I feel accomplished now!

Beta/Encouragement: The very lovely and multi-talented M. I actually nicked the glass box metaphor in this chapter from her. Talent borrows, genius steals. ;-)

Notes: This part is dedicated to all my Libs friends, past and present, far and near. You continually restore my faith in love and music, and help me believe in the possibility of happy endings. Thank you. ♥
Credit goes to Nine Inch Nails for providing the soundtrack to this series. All chapter titles are lyrics taken from various NIN songs.
Coming Clean originally started out as a prompt. It was meant to be loosely based on "My Beautiful Laundrette", which just goes to show I'm not ever, ever, ever to be trusted with prompts, haha.
All comments are love and much appreciated.

Title: I Wish - Chapter 1B - Please, Carl (4/20)
Pairing: Peter/Carl
Rating: R, or above...
Genre: Alternate realities: starts a few yers back (approx. 2008), then splits into two alternate timelines.
Summary: What would happen if both Peter and Carl were granted a wish that would change the reality of where they are, and who they are, in regards to each other.
Teaser: Everything feels inside out and smashed together. It’s as if the world has collapsed into nothing beyond narrowing, unfamiliar walls, and all Peter can feel anymore is this pounding desire.

Title: I Wish - Chapter 1A - Wake Up, Peter (3/20)
Pairing: Peter/Carl
Rating: PG, but just about to change...
Genre: Alternate realities: starts a few yers back (approx. 2008), then splits into two alternate timelines.
Summary: What would happen if both Peter and Carl were granted a wish that would change the reality of where they are, and who they are, in regards to each other.
Teaser: It is then that he notices it, strangers and more surreal than the sight of that jacket thrown across the chair. He is shirtless, wearing only jeans and his pale skin. Something is missing though, a few somethings really. Ink marks are missing, of both band names – no Baby Shambles, and at a frantic glance, no Libertine on his arm either.

Title: I Wish - Prologue Part Two - Carl's Wish (2/20)
Pairing: Peter/Carl
Rating: PG, for now.
Genre: Alternate realities: starts a few yers back (approx. 2008), then splits into two alternate timelines.
Summary: What would happen if both Peter and Carl were granted a wish that would change the reality of where they are, and who they are, in regards to each other.
Teaser: Carl can still recall those late afternoons when they would wake up in that room together, the one that was always too warm inside. The murky residue of smoke and overturned bottles permeated the walls and had seeped into their clothing, their shared mattress, and the walls; turning everything sour. And yet, it was in that dank room that Carl had always felt most alive. He was loath to admit it now, even to himself, but it was those days with Peter, when they were nothing but buskers and beggars, that Carl catches himself longing for sometimes.

Title: I Wish - Prologue Part One - Peter's Wish (1/20)
Pairing: Peter/Carl
Rating: PG, for now.
Genre: Alternate realities: starts a few yers back (approx. 2008), then splits into two alternate timelines.
Summary: What would happen if both Peter and Carl were granted a wish that would change the reality of where they are, and who they are, in regards to each other.
Teaser: Peter still believed that all their were somehow, like stars, foreve aligned. Not that they had been orbiting anywhere close to each other, not for a good long while anyway.
Note: This fic was started back in 2008, and never finished. I am revising/rewriting, and yes, finishing it - thought I'd post it from the beginning, with the edits, here again.

Rating: Nothing explicit in this chapter
Previously: Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 | Part 5 | Part 6
Author's Note: Er, hello! I am back! And doing fic-y things! Maybe in the comments we can chat about my complex feelings about the Libs over the past couple of years and how I was pretty down for a while because 2010 didn't lead to anything else but now Peter is in rehab! There's an album deal! and I saw those pictures and the video from Thailand and suddenly I was very much back in, and I remembered there were some boys who had a story that needed finishing. This is not that finish, but it is that story.

Title: Coming Clean

Pairing: Peter/Carl

Genre: Hostile work environment fic - AU (obviously)

Rating: Rather tame, because real sadness leaves little room for sex or violence - or anything else, really.

Beta: This part has been kindly approved of by the wonderful yfli - thank you very much, love! :) dreams579 - if you are out there, I'd looooove to hear from you, too, but after this minor 2-year delay *cough*, I do understand, if you have finally given up on me. :P How the time flies, eh?

Notes: What can I say? I never really went away... "True love doesn't die, does it? It just hides in a shoebox for a couple of years." ♥ And that's all I can offer in way of an explanation. As always, comments are love and bring a smile to my face.

Dedication: I dedicate this chapter to the lovely and talented xpnsvesadness, who said the exactly right thing at the exactly right time - thank you so much for encouraging me to share the rest of this story on here.

Previous chapters: part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4

I can picture him, paint him from memory, his outline a piece of art that will live forever on the inside of my skull, painfully real but untouchable, silhouetted perfectly against the dark, reddish glow of my desire and shame.Collapse )

Hi!



(I'm afraid this might be against the rules, but there is no active community for this type of thing and I want it bad. So here goes.)

I need some help finding a fic that I read ages ago (back when Dirty Pretty Things were a thing). It was about DPT, mostly - I'm pretty sure it was around Didz/Stan.
There was a dramatic story about why Didz left The Cooper Temple Clause - he and Ben were lovers, and Ben did something bad to Didz, so he left. While the story is told, TCTC released their last album, and there were scenes of Didz listening to the CD by himself, with lots of lyrics quotes - "why did you trust me with your heart?" - and it was very emotional. There was also this cute thing, that TCTC band members all called each other "Cooper".

Please help me find this! :) Thank you ladies!
