ladynorbert: (Tarrant/Mirana)
Now that I've at least started the ficlets, I'm doing the week-overdue birthday gift I promised to [livejournal.com profile] likesthesilence. I offered to write any scene from either the Alice movie or my fic based thereon from the Hatter's POV, and she chose this one. SPOILERS, for the movie and moreso for my fic. Happy birthday, hon. Read more... )
ladynorbert: (Tarrant/Mirana)
Title: Queen's Gambit
Fandom: Alice in Wonderland (Tim Burton)
Pairing: Tarrant Hightopp/Mirana of Marmoreal; implications of possible Tarrant/Alice; mentions of Iracebeth/King of Hearts and Iracebeth/Stayne
Rating: PG-13 at worst
Notes: This was just supposed to have been a one-shot piece of Tarrant/Mirana fluff, because I wanted to know that there was at least one good story about that pairing. Instead it exploded into Mirana's entire biography. If there's anything you don't understand or would like explained (e.g. "where'd you get that idea?"), please feel free to leave comments as the story progresses; it's a habit of mine to present a bonus chapter at the end of my longer fics in which I provide references and stuff, and I'll answer any questions there. My brain has an annoying/awesome tendency to try to spackle plotholes no matter how small, so there's an absurd level of detail forthcoming. (Chapter one is here, although when the story is finished I'm considering going back and merging it with this chapter, since it seems oddly short compared with this one.)
Story Summary: When you have the power to make anyone love you, how do you know who loves you for who you really are? Mirana has been certain only once in her life.
Chapter Summary: Mirana gains a brother-in-law, a court of her own, and one particularly valuable courtier.

Chapter Summary: Even in their youth, Mirana began to realize that the elder sister she idolized would come to no very good end.

Dear Brain,

You have quite enough to be getting on with. Stop indulging this whimsy about writing Alice in Wonderland fic. Even if there isn't enough Tarrant/Mirana fic out there.

Love, Me

P.S. Why do I have a feeling this is going to be a losing battle?

For my own reference later (since I can't download this at work) and also for any of you who might be interested. If you have seen the movie and would like to read the original screenplay, it can be downloaded here. By original, I mean the early draft -- not what was actually filmed. Lots of stuff got cut. I am given to understand that SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER ).
