Subject:Dark Shadows new movie
Time:08:57 am
Please consider boycotting the new 2012 DARK SHADOWS movie. It is terrible. Dan Curtis never wanted his show to be laughed at and said as much.

Subject:"Fatherhood" (PG-13, Classic Series One-Shot)
Time:05:54 pm

Title: Fatherhood

Author: Nvr_Sk_to_Tll

Rating: PG-13 (since it's mostly sweet fluff with a few bitter drops of angst
and family enmity)
 
A/N: A little something I had been working on for a while, but which seemed
appropriate to put out there now.  There are references to Parallel Time and
Main time, with all Parallel Time dates labeled as PT, of course.  Happy
Father's Day.
 
Summary: Glimpses at (mostly) happy moments between father's and their children
here and there throughout the history of the Collins clan (real and parallel time)

Subject:"When You Were Young" (Classic Series, rated R)
Time:05:55 am

Title: When You Were Young

Author: Nvr_Sk_to_Tll

Fandom: Dark Shadows

Rating/Warnings: R for the tiniest bit of implied violence, an implied quantity of blood, and some mild profanity ("damn" a few times)

A/N: It is fairly obvious from a rewatch of the 1840 storyline that Quentin and Samantha Collins both greatly loved their son Tad. This is just something that came to me in a dream.
A pair of daguerrotype (late-1830s/early-1840s photography) style photo manipulations I made to accompany this story can be found here at collinwood_fic   

Summary: After the events of 1840/41, Tad Collins reflects on his childhood and times good and bad that he spent with his parents.

______________________________________________

Tad remembered that, when he was a very small boy, he was surrounded by his family, and he loved them all.Collapse )

Subject:"In the Eyes of a Young Girl" (Classic Series, rated PG-13)
Time:03:46 pm

Title: In the Eyes of a Young Girl

Author: Nvr_Sk_to_Tell

Fandom: Dark Shadows

Rating/Warnings: PG-13 for some mentions of the dangers of life in the late 19th century...

A/N: Everybody, I suppose, has their own idea for the backstory of characters they liked who weren't fully explored in a show or film.

In Dark Shadows fandom, one question that seems to pop up among some fans is why Beth, who didn't seem to be of Hispanic descent, had a surname like Chavez which, though it was pronounced "sha-VEZ" on the show, is definitely, from the spelling, the old Spanish surname meaning "keys". I've seen many fan fiction explanations.
Anyway, here's my take on Beth's pre-Collinwood life, including the name issue. This is sort of a prequel to The World Trilogy, in that it takes place in the same version of the Dark Shadows universe.

Summary: Childhood should be a time of some joy; little did Beth know just how well her own tormented youth would prepare her for the agonies of adult life that lay ahead.

Subject:"In This World That We Know Now" (Classic Series, Mild R rating)
Time:11:55 am

Title: In This World That We Know Now

Author: Nvr_Sk_to_Tll

Fandom: Dark Shadows

Rating/Warnings: R, for mild angst, implied sex, and character death (some canon)

A/N: The final story in the trilogy that includes "

The Whole Wide World" and "A Private World". Quentin's side of things.

Summary: Quentin never meant to be a bad man; he simply didn't know which way he really wanted his life to go. It would take him what seemed like forever to learn that sometimes, when what you think you want most is the world at your feet, you really want the world that's made up of those who truly love you.

Subject:"A Private World" (Classic Series, Mild R rating)
Time:02:52 am

Title: A Private World

Author: Nvr_Sk_to_Tll

Fandom: Dark Shadows

Rating/Warnings: R, for massive angst, trauma, implied sex, indirect depiction of turn-of-the century abortion, "off-screen" putting an animal out of its misery, and character death (canon)

A/N: This is a companion piece to "The Whole Wide World". Beth's take on events.

Summary: As a servant, Beth learned to keep her thoughts and opinions to herself unless asked for them. They piled up in her mind and gave her a beautiful world of her own to live in. But sometimes a world, particularly a beautiful one, can be a fragile thing indeed, easily shattered by those we hold most dear

Subject:"The Whole Wide World" (Classic Series, Mild R Rating)
Time:12:02 am

Title: The Whole Wide World

Author: Nvr_Sk_to_Tll

Fandom: Dark Shadows

Rating/Warnings: R, for a loss of psychological and emotional innocence, an implied abortion, and the implied murder of an animal.

A/N: I was suddenly compelled to explore the bond between Jamison Collins and his Uncle Quentin. I don't know why. It's a subject that must have been explored a million times in stories. And then of course Beth came into matters a lot, so it became a sort of triangular study of the relationship of a young child with two adults he adores.

Summary: Jamison's Uncle Quentin was his whole world when he was young. But time goes by, and not all of our worlds are permanent.

When Jamison was born, his father, Edward, came into the nursery and looked at him and pronounced him a good, strong Collins son, then left.Collapse )

Subject:Forever is What You Make It (Classic Series crack!fic, rated R)
Time:07:22 pm

Title: Forever is What You Make It

Author: Nvr_Sk_to_Tll

Fandom: Dark Shadows

Pairing: Angelique/Joe

Rating/Warnings: R for vampiric biting and a little blood (more will probably appear when other DS fans beat me for this making no sense)

A/N: Watching some Dark Shadows minisodes over at YouTube, I noticed that the first time Angelique bites Joe, she afterward seems quite enamored of him. I know, I know, it's the whole vamp-thrall connections, blah blah. Anyway, this was born of the observation.
It's a bit crack!fic, a bit parallel time tale, a bit going-out-into-the-world micro-mini!saga, a bit love story...it's just odd, okay?

Summary: Nicholas Blair is defeated...perhaps too easily. In the aftermath, Angelique and Joe leave Collinsport far behind, not sure what lies ahead for them...
