FIC: Seven Days to the Wolves (complete)

Post by c_nordlander » Sat Sep 12, 2015 10:36 pm

A story I wrote a while back to a request by Missy. Finished, but still on the editing stage, so by all means give constructive criticism or suggestions for improvement if you think it needs it.

Several years from now, Rusty and the Monarch are both dead in one last climactic battle. As the boys return to the Venture Compound for the funeral, painful feelings bubble up on all sides. Things go from bad to worse when the former henchman 21 decides to get revenge for the death of his erstwhile leader.

Set in the same continuity as my fic Raven Must Die, but the plots are unconnected. Note that this was written a while back, so some of the stuff in this story is now AU. Notably, the Venture Compound is still around, 21 hasn't been in the Monarch's service for a long time, and Dean doesn't know he's a clone.

Content warning: character death. Pretty dark.

Note: this was previously posted at Venture Industries. This version has an improved joke and I've fixed a couple of wonky sentences, but is essentially the same as the old one.

Are you really gonna take it like that?
Riding on the missile with a cowboy hat?

Oh, well the world is gonna end
So dance around the fire that we once believed in
Oh, wanna tear it down again, now
'Cause there's nothing left for us to bleed
Give it up, the sons of anarchy
So come around and have another round on me!

Loved it.

Scattered thoughts:
Great stuff, thanks for writing it.

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone’s fault. If it was Us, what did that make Me? After all, I’m one of Us. I must be. I’ve certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We’re always one of Us. It’s Them that do bad things. - Jingo, Terry Pratchett
