I drifted out of fandom the last few years, but then I watched Breaking Bad (late to the party, yes, tell me about it) and... wow. *flails*
It was glorious and perfect and I wouldn't change a single second of how it played out, but it DESTROYED me. I was thinking about how I would give my soul to be able to fix it, and save everyone, and give them all a happy ending... and then I remembered I could.
Because what's fanfic for,
if not to step in and turn a desperately heartbreaking tragedy into a screwball romantic comedy? :-)
This Epic Story of Forbidden Love - Walt/Jesse (R) - Humour/Crack/Romance - 14,136 wordsIt started out like the kind of true crime tragedy everyone’s heard a dozen times before: boy falls in with bad crowd, boy starts using, boy goes off the rails. But when they get to Act 2 — boy goes through traumatic gang initiation — things take an unexpected turn and suddenly they’re in a sex dungeon and instead of the gang boss telling the boy to go shoot someone in the face, he’s telling him to take his clothes off.
