Since Bowie's passing, I've become reobsessed with Velvet Goldmine, and I made some VG-inspired teas over at Adagio. Figured it might be worth mentioning here. :)

Title: The Basis for Optimism
Pairing: Curt Wild/Arthur Stuart
Part: 1/1
Words: ~4500
Rating: R
Notes/warnings: Many, many thanks to my beta reader, gonergone, for a much-needed second pair of eyes and a much-appreciated critique. Warnings, as well, for drug use, one instance of non-explicit rough sex and general angst.

A slightly unusual form of fan creativity, but hey, this movie deserves as many people as possible talking about it and creating whatever for it as much as possible: I recently did a post on contemporary outfit inspiration from Velvet Goldmine. Feel free to check it out, if there's still anyone looking at this comm besides me.

Fanfiction: Days in Summer, parts 4 and 5 on 5 [
Saturday; January 12; 2013<=LASTN_DATE_FORMAT]

wild_huntress
Title: Days in Summer
Pairing: Curt/Arthur
Part: 4/5
Words: ~ 3200
Rating: R (mentions of drug use, sex)
Warning(s): Very brief mentions of past drug abuse. Some angst as well, if that counts.
Author’s note(s): I am re-posting this part because I don’t think anyone saw it (I probably posted too close to the holidays); however, this is kind of the crux of the story.

(Part Four)

Part: 5/5
Words: ~3200
Rating: PG13 (language)
Warning(s): None for this part
Author’s notes: First, this follows immediately after the end of part four. Second, the title, which is dropped into the last line, is a reference to a line in The Picture of Dorian Gray; the lyric “I miss you – you’re beautiful” comes from David Bowie’s song Five Years. Third, I felt iffy about the epilogue but included it anyway for the sake of clarity; I guess you can think of it as "optional".

Fanfiction: Days in Summer, parts 3 and 4/5, rated R, Curt/Arthur [
Friday; December 14; 2012<=LASTN_DATE_FORMAT]

wild_huntress
Posting relatively early because I am close to done Days in Summer, and may even manage to complete the whole fic before I go on vacation on the 22nd. There's one part remaining after these two, incidentally. Also, I am posting Parts 3 and 4 because Part 3 was originally posted as a one off short ficlet Give and Take, and although I have tweaked it a bit I don't feel that merits reposting it separately.

Title: Days in Summer
Pairing: Curt/Arthur
Part: 3/5
Part 1 | Part 2
Words: ~1400
Rating: R (mentions of drug use, sex)
Warning(s): As noted above, mentions of past drug abuse.
Disclaimer: Velvet Goldmine and all associated characters and trademarks are the intellectual property of Todd Haynes and Miramax. This is a work of non-commercial fan fiction commentary on the film; no ownership is being claimed and no profit is being made.
Author’s note(s): In keeping with the liberal use of Oscar Wilde quotes in this movie, the quote about regretting the loss of one’s worst habits is a paraphrase from The Picture of Dorian Gray.

(Curt knows that just a few years ago, he would have destroyed someone like Arthur in about two months.)

Title: Days in Summer
Pairing: Curt/Arthur
Part: 4/5
Words: ~ 3200
Rating: R (mentions of drug use, sex)
Warning(s): Very brief mentions of past drug abuse. Some angst as well, if that counts.
Author’s note(s): In keeping with the unifying theme of Oscar Wilde references in this movie and this story, this part is peppered with several quotes/paraphrases from The Picture of Dorian Gray. (If you want the complete spotter's guide, just ask.) As well, this story has not been beta read, but feedback/concrit are absolutely treasured.

(Arthur has never meant anything to anyone in his life, but sometimes, he really thinks that's changing.)

Fanfiction: Days in Summer, part 2/? [Curt/Arthur, PG-13/R for this part] [
Friday; November 23; 2012<=LASTN_DATE_FORMAT]

wild_huntress
Title: Days in Summer
Pairing: Curt/Arthur
Part: 2/? (probably 2/4)
Words: ~2600
Rating: PG-13/R
Warnings: Blink-and-you’ll-miss-them mentions of past drug use, a few curse words and implied sex.
Disclaimer: Velvet Goldmine and all associated characters and trademarks are the intellectual property of Todd Haynes and Miramax. This is a work of non-commercial fan fiction commentary on the film; no ownership is being claimed and no profit is being made.
Author’s notes: Part one is posted here, if you missed it and are interested. This is a honeymoon-type interlude that follows soon after the first part. Also, the last couple lines of this part are an Oscar Wilde paraphrase. Finally, this has not been beta read, but any feedback/concrit/appreciation always absolutely makes my day.

("Maybe Curt has been alone for too long...")

This is probably a bad weekend to post; however, happy US Thanksgiving to anybody in the States.

I hope this will be okay to post here... I know it's not necessarily VG, but VG was based on Bowie so...

Fanfiction: Variations on a Theme [Velvet Goldmine, C/A, three interconnected vignettes] [

Variations on a Theme
Pairing: Curt/Arthur
Disclaimer: Velvet Goldmine and all associated characters, plots and trademarks are the intellectual property of Todd Haynes and Miramax. This is a work of non-commercial fan fiction commentary on the film; no ownership is being claimed and no profit is being made or sought.
Author’s notes: Here are three short, somewhat interconnected C/A vignettes all exploring the theme of reminiscence (and pillow talk, apparently). Atypically, I'm posting this directly here, not just linking to my journal, as that seemed more efficient with three really short pieces.


“Oh No Love, You’re Not Alone”
Words: ~420
Rating: PG
Warnings: Implied references to internalized homophobia/ self hate.
Author’s note: The title comes from a lyric in David Bowie’s Rock and Roll Suicide. The line sort of inspired this piece...

“Oh No Love, You’re Not Alone”Collapse )

“Look What They’ve Done to the Blues”
Words: ~360
Rating: R
Warnings: Do I need to warn for not particularly explicit m/m sex? Really?
Author’s note: The title comes from a line in the original Steve Harley version of Tumbling Down.

“What was it like, that day on the roof?”Collapse )

"Love That Doesn’t Know What It’s Dreaming Of”
Words: ~430
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Brief reference to past drug use
Author’s note: The title comes from an Iggy Pop song, Something Wild.
“You know I seriously considered taking you with me”Collapse )

fic: untitled Curt/Arthur smut sketch [
Wednesday; October 31; 2012<=LASTN_DATE_FORMAT]

01cheers
Saw the film this weekend, had mind blown by the rooftop scene, and three days later, my weird brain threw this at me and wouldn't let go until I'd typed it up in a kind of trance last night. And this morning I discovered this comm. It's probably been done lots of times here before, considering this fandom's age; I look forward to exploring the comm's fic trove soon, but for now, am posting my snippet.

Rooftop scene as per the film, blushing virgin!Arthur as the quasi-PoV character and confident seducer!Curt, about 2K words, as NC17 as it gets.  Sorry, don't have a VG icon ;)

Fanfiction: Days in Summer, part 1/? [Velvet Goldmine, Curt/Arthur, rated PG-13 for this part] [
Sunday; September 30; 2012<=LASTN_DATE_FORMAT]

wild_huntress
I am still working on getting all the plot bunnies I have for this movie out of my system, although it's been taking some time. Without further ado...

Title: Days in Summer
Pairing: Curt/Arthur
Part: 1/?
Words: ~ 3500 (primarily dialogue in this part)
Rating: PG-13 for this part, for language and implied sex
Warnings: None for this part
Disclaimer: Velvet Goldmine and all associated characters and trademarks are the intellectual property of Todd Haynes and Miramax. This is a work of non-commercial fan fiction commentary on the film; no ownership is being claimed and no profit is being made.
Author’s notes: 1) This has not been beta read, but feedback is absolutely priceless. 2) This piece, beginning immediately after the movie’s end, precedes the Curt/Arthur piece I posted a few weeks ago under the title “Give and Take” and which I will probably tweak and co-opt into this series of vignettes. 3) Finally, the title comes from a line in The Picture of Dorian Gray, and the piece is peppered with Oscar Wilde quotes which should be easily identifiable. If you want the complete spotter’s guide, just ask.

Fanfiction: Give and Take [Curt/Arthur, rated R] [
Friday; August 31; 2012<=LASTN_DATE_FORMAT]

wild_huntress
So, I had never written for this movie before, but rewatching it three times in the last month has spawned about twenty plot bunnies which I am trying to get out of my system. The recent flicker of activity here, particularly projectblu's encouraging new discussion and fic has also been inspiring. Without further ado...

Title: Give and Take
Pairing: Curt Wild/Arthur Stuart
Words: ~1400
Rating: R for mentions of past drug abuse, sexual content and language
Warnings: As noted above, mentions of past drug abuse.
Disclaimer: Velvet Goldmine and all associated characters, plots and trademarks are the intellectual property of Todd Haynes and Miramax. This is a work of non-commercial fan fiction commentary on the film; no ownership is being claimed and no profit is being made or sought.
Author’s notes: Not beta read, but feedback is much appreciated. Set a few months post movie, established Curt/Arthur relationship (well, getting established). I have a lot of ideas for this pairing now and although this piece makes sense alone, I may eventually co-opt it into a larger narrative. Finally, in keeping with the liberal use of Oscar Wilde quotes in this movie, the quote about regretting the loss of one’s worst habits is a paraphrase from The Picture of Dorian Gray.

I've been obsessed with VG since 1999 and it's impossible to find fellow fans! Too bad more fans can't get involved here. Hell, I can talk about this film 24/7--why can't others?! BTW, you have the best AVIs in the known universe! Hang in there and keep up the good work!

*Curt Wild: We set out to change the world and only ended up changing ourselves...

*Arthur StewartWhat's wrong with that?

*Curt Wild: Nothing. If you don't look at the world...

Wow, I feel sad seeing this community look so quiet - perhaps we can liven it up a bit? I know I recently pulled out Velvet Goldmine after 6 or so years of not having seen it (don't ask me how), and am now more obsessed with it than ever.

A couple points:
1) I am identifying with Arthur more than ever, and have actually used that quote about "money, future and a serious life" making me forget certain things in, like, real conversations. Am also wondering if anyone else thinks things are going to go rather better for Arthur as of the end of this movie? I certainly like to think so. I read an interview in which Todd Haynes said this is a movie about the flash in the pan glam rock movement that, ultimately, went nowhere and changed/did nothing (paraphrasing the interview - but this was his take more than mine), and yet I feel that the film ends on a hopeful note. The way Arthur says that last line about "a freedom you can allow yourself - or not" seems like he's learned... something. Plus, Curt has given him the Oscar Wilde pin, which has - at least more or less - 'mapped' onto queer triumph/ self-confidence/ pride, or something. I feel like the ending is a hopeful one and leaves open the possibility of progress - agree? Disagree? (Not to mention the spectacular choice of song in 2HB - but then again the whole soundtrack is spectacular and perfectly appropriate...)

2) OMG, the quotes. Seriously, I can't be the only one who finds quotes from this movie making their way into her everyday conversations, can I? Not even the Oscar Wilde ones, just there are so many Velvet Goldmine phrases and quotes that have made their way into my regular vocabulary - like "beaming like someone's mum," the "we set out to change the world" exchange (which I've worked into business settings, too, natch) and of course the "money, future and a serious life" thing that I mentioned before. I've even been tempted to start off letters with "Dear Sir or Madam or whomever else may be in the house this evening" (I didn't want to offend anybody with heteronormative categories) - please tell me I'm not the only one who does this with this or other movies, lol? ;)
