    Summary

    It's somehow funny, in Henry's attempt to escape Bunny he has attached himself to him indefinitely. If there is such a thing as a soul, Henry's and Bunny's would be intertwined as murderer and victim, as best friends, as a quiet but inevitable "I will be the death of you".

    Summary

    I wasn’t quite sure what this could bring to the future but a little part of me hoped for something. Richard still looked dazed, I hoped his nerves wouldn’t get to him just him just yet.

    Summary

    i am a good person. i am a powerful person. i don’t believe in evil. i think that evil is an idea created by others to avoid dealing with their own nature. i understand my own nature. good and evil have nothing to do with it.

    ‘we don’t know what she’ll do,’ cameron says. ‘heather’s nervous.’
    ‘no idea why,’ frances mutters, voice dripping with sarcasm, ‘it isn’t like the statute for murder never expires.’
    ‘manslaughter,’ charlotte corrects- ‘it wasn’t premeditated.’
    cameron pushes his glasses up his nose and opens his mouth like he’s willing to debate the semantics, but frances dogears her page and says, ‘could we change the subject? it makes me feel sick.’

    Summary

    “You’re going to kill yourself,” Richard says, and the drugs struggle to take him under once more. 

     

    “We’re still on this, are we?” Henry asks archly. 

     

    “Never came off of it,” Richard says, and takes another drink. 

    ~

    Alternatively: Henry proposes the mushroom plan to take care of Bunny. Nothing is alright, ever.

    Summary

    A re-writing of Richard and Francis' summer in New York , right after Henry's death .

    I'm aware this fic isn't a literary masterpiece by any means - it's very self-indulgent and I wrote it because I was sad and needed some cheesy papenathy to cheer me up . I hope it'll cheer you up too :)

    Summary

    Yet another reason to dislike Richard Papen: the most embarrassing editorial oversight I've seen in a published work.

    But in this non-canonical scene, it makes his life turn out better, I guess?

    Summary

    based off me only noticing that charles and camilla return to virginia together immediately after the events at hampden during my second re-read!

    camilla-centric musings on henry, charles, and her life in virginia post-canon.

    there is nothing explicit in this, but all the usual warnings for vaguely referenced canon-compliant incest and discussions of suicide. low key inspired by "me and my husband" by mitski.
