For: tungwene on cg_flashfic, who requested Ougi/Villetta.
Comments: This fic should be better than it is. I have a completed draft of my first concept for the fic, which is where they meet at a restaurant, Villetta is cranky, Ougi is apologetic, they make up, etc., and I was going to post up this fic as an example of why sometimes you want to sit back and think and rewrite. In my head
there's a city at night this fic sounded really good. It was solid and beautiful. What happened? It even has a solid start, and then it just...falls apart. But I've tweaked it endlessly, and the problems aren't resolving themselves, and I sort of want to move on to my psychophonetics C.C.-centric AU plotfic, so I'm afraid this is as good as the fic is going to get.

"Lot's Wife," the poem halfway through and then again at the end, belongs to Anna Akhmatova, or maybe her heirs, because she is dead.
Summary: Seventeen years and seventeen miles from where it started, they meet again.
( It's not too late. You can still look / On the red towers of your mother Sodom, / On the square where you sang and spun, / On the barren windows of the home / Where you bore your dear husband children.Collapse )
