1 Work in The Balladeer (Assassins)/Leon Czolgosz
The Carnival doesn't care who you are.
Whether a racist southern actor, a bumbling soccer mom, or a traumatized laborer, it will sing promises of a sweet victory but then drag you down, sucking the very life out of your lungs until you are left cold & barren & sinking into the abyss.
What happens when one man attempts to swim up?
A fic exploring the history of Leon Czolgosz, and his intense, desperate connection with a man he loved: as told through the eyes of The Balladeer. Written for someone who knew nothing of the show, so some scenes are detailed for context.
