One Day We'll Look Back And...Pairing:
I am playing with other people's property for fun and no profit.Notes:
Written for the booshbattle
prompt years before the series, early twenties maybe, roadtrip
. They're a bit older than that here, though. Welcome to 1998.
My extreme thanks to the_reverand
(whose entire fault this is, really), silent_fields
, and beansidhe_baby
for their help with this, and also a large contingent of LJ and Twitter friends who peeled me off the ceiling more than they should've needed to. Any fail is all mine.
The Nabokov quotation that's mentioned is from this
, which has nothing to do with anything except that it's also sort of about a road trip, and what it references in turn is Laurence Sterne's Sentimenal Journey Through France and Italy
. There is also a James Joyce bit
but that's a spoiler. :) And the cartoon pirate thing is from Spartakus and the Sun Beneath the Sea
-- it hadn't been aired in Britain yet so Jones would have only seen the original French version.
This is a portion of the backstory to Someone Like You
, but neither depends on the other. Masterlist for this universe is here.( I didn't actually bring you a leek... )
