Fic: Gothic Romance

My fic is now a thing! It's very weird, I know, but hopefully also entertaining, and at last Count Scarlioni has fic. This involved having to rewatch City of Death for research, which, as you must admit, is about as good as research gets. (I also listened to the commentary and Julian Glover wanted to know about Scaroth's love life/lives, so I felt all vindicated for writing weird borderline-shippy fic. I mean, if Julian Glover asked for it, who am I to disoblige? ;-p)

Anyway, my entry for the Minor Characters Ficathon 2017:

Author: lost_spook
Title: Gothic Romance
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 7369 words
Characters/Pairings: Scaroth | Count Scarlioni/Clara Splinter, Great Intelligence Splinter (plus bonus guest appearances).
Notes/Warnings: For inevitable Clara splinter death, mainly, plus slight forced marriage of convenience dodginess. With many thanks to Persiflage for beta-ing it at short notice. Written for dw_guestfest 2017; also for the dw_allsorts prompt “love is done,” [community profile] trope_bingo square “fake relationship,” and hc_bingo square “tentacles.”
Summary: It is a fact universally acknowledged that any beings splintered in time will inevitably run into each other. No law says it has to end well, though…

Gothic Romance (on AO3) | at the Teaspoon (awaiting approval as yet).

Huh, I totally don't remember Count Scarlioni being given a first name in the dialogue, but your character list has it as Carlos. Is that from a novelization or other supplemental material, or was I not paying close enough attention/not remembering?

Great fic, btw.

It's actually from the serial - his wife calls him Carlos a couple of times when she's speaking to him. But if you weren't watching it, looking out for Scaroth information, you probably wouldn't remember! I hadn't noticed it before, either.

ETA: And thank you! *beams*

Clearly, it has been far too long since I last watched "City of Death".

(Would you believe that the region 1 DVD is out of print and going for $70 used on Amazon? I call BS.)

Wow, that is pretty rubbish - but then Amazon prices by robot & goes by rarity on its site and can get pretty weird about stuff. Maybe eBay or something???

(I like your appropriate icon.)
