Pros drabble  
This was actually recced on a yahoo groups email list today - Zinelist - and I had to share it here. Only 100 words but they really pack a punch. Link here:

We Will Become Silhouettes.
The author Sarah K has warned for Major Character Death but.... (more spoilers below)

...........


...........

...........

I usually avoid deathfic but in this one they both go out together. Somehow that just seems right for the lads. While this little drabble packs a wallop it avoids the emotional wallow which is what I really struggle with in deathfic. Anyway I liked it.

Nice (sad) drabble, thanks for the rec... *g*

...but you do realise that by saying the author warned for major character death (in bold!) you've actually spoiled the people you tried to protect from spoilers in the next part of the sentence by using a spoiler cut...?!

I'm glad you enjoyed.

The reason for putting the author's warning in bold was so people who won't read deathfic under any circumstances were well warned. The spoiler cut was for those who were still prepared to read but didn't want any further info as to the content of the fic ie the fact that they both go out together.

Deathfic where they both die is somehow, to me, less upsetting, I guess because we don't have a grieving partner left behind.

See, that's the bit that I don't get though - what about the people who don't like being spoiled for stories under any circumstances? We lose out! People who want the warnings will look at the spoiler cut, but people who don't want the warnings don't have any choice when stuff's put outside a cut...

And yeah, I agree about deathfic when they both die - cos they're actually still together, even if it's sad...

It can be a no-win situation, can't it? Whether to warn, or not to warn. However I take your point, and will move my cut.

Thank you, on behalf of everyone who doesn't want to be spoiled! *g*

It's amazing, it's such a huge fandom and we're still stumbling over previously unseen stuff all the time.

Wow, this was fantastic! It's not something I've ever come across before but I loved it - and I'm someone who normally runs a mile from deathfic. This is a keeper, thank you so much.

(Hope you don't mind me commenting here)

It's different from most deathfic I think because there's no wallow, and it's just right for the lads - how I'd like to see them go, if they had to go at all. I'm glad you enjoyed it.
Of course no probs with you commenting here. :-)

This drabble is the very favourite of one of my Pros friends; I understand why.

It's just that good, I can see why it's her very favourite.
