Sick of Shadows )

[personal profile] stultiloquentia asked for a snippet of my North and South fic. As I find this extremely flattering and am pretty much a whore, here it is! Though I do seem to be in a rather bad habit these days of posting things only one person is going to read. Oh well.

Some context: This is a work in progress, but one of those I plan to try to post and finish some time this year. It's about 80,000 words at present, and it is also crack of the worst kind.

The premise is that Margaret married Thornton after the incident at the mill. He proposed and she said no, but then gossip negatively affected her family, Thornton quietly reproposed, and she accepted. For one thing I just don't think the gossip could have gotten that bad, and for another, I think Margaret is just too proud to cave. So heaven knows why I even started writing it, but I did, and it gets worse.

Thornton is aware Margaret married him just to preserve her family's reputation, and the thought of sleeping with her when she dislikes him so disturbs him! So of course they do not have sex, and Thornton suggests she come to him when she does want of the sex. Of course Margaret does not know what he means by "wanting sex" other than "wanting to do her duty" which she already wants to do, but that he seems to find disgusting. It's very confusing to her! They sleep in separate rooms, oh lord.

In this scene, they've been married for a little bit but not having sex. They're all going to London to the Great Exhibition together: Thornton, Margaret, Fanny and the Latimers. This is on the train to London.

Guys, I did something crazy! My computer was just broken for like almost a month. Er . . . so that's one reason I haven't been around. The other reason is I've been taking the crack pills. Apparently, because I just created this: [livejournal.com profile] 19thc_exchange. And then I posted the following message at like a bajillion places. Okay, like 5. But what is wrong with me? Why I am I doing this? Why can't there just be good North and South fanfiction without Mr. Thornton committing rape without yelling surprise, and without Margaret bursting into tears every other second? Why why why? Okay, here's the message I posted. I guess you guys can read it. ;o) :

[livejournal.com profile] 19thc_exchange is a fic exchange for fanfic based on period dramas. “Period dramas” includes literature written during the 19th century in any part of the world; movies, television shows, and mini-series based on that literature; and original movies, television shows, and mini-series set during that time. Here is an overview of the purpose of [livejournal.com profile] 19thc_exchange.

Exchanges will occur in rounds, and each round will have a theme. One theme may be an author; the fics exchanged will only be relevant to that author’s work. One theme may be young adult period literature and media. One theme may be non-English speaking countries. Etc etc.

The first round is Jane Austen. Read more about it here.

If you are interested in exchanging Jane Austen fic, or other period drama fic in the future, join the comm. The sign up post for Round One goes up March 23rd, 12:00 AM PST.

Please pass the word along to anyone you think might be interested. I am currently looking for people to make banners in order to advertise both [livejournal.com profile] 19thc_exchange and Round One. If you are interested, please contact me, or reply to a post at [livejournal.com profile] 19thc_exchange.
