Wasted Years - Casanova music vid  
Alright, so I haven't finished the next chapter yet. I've been working on a few other things instead, and as a peace offering to the lack of fic, I offer one of them.



It's just a straightforward tribute, pretty much, not anything related to Finding Me, other than the fact that it's the same sort of brooding, but. It's something!

Spoilers throughout the 2005 miniseries (but lacking any of the racy scenes)

This was not what I'd set out to make. I'd meant for something very differently toned, crossover, and quite possibly a different POV, but while unsuccessfully finding ANY song for what I wanted, I stumbled through this one and went "THIS. NOW." And so I did. First full-length in awhile, for the simple fact that this one managed to come out in effectively two sittings. (Primarily my problem is that my Vegas freezes eternally when trying to load most project files, so saving is only possible through rendering each step, and that is involving and can't account for regular crashes)

Anyway, the plot is pretty simply older!Giacomo's POV of his life, and the regrets he felt that led to his self-imposed exile. I made an effort to balance it between his disgust at what he became and his love for what he was, and most importantly, his constant, futile, pursuit of Henriette...which ultimately led to his downfall.

There's a bit of a recurring theme of Bellino, just because I think he's got quite a bit of guilt for pushing her down the path she eventually went, too.

The last line was meant more "It's not easy winning", he gets (nearly) everything he sought--money, fame, women, and someone undoubtedly willing to grant him pardon--but at a price he can't pay.

Perhaps if I make another, there'll be more of happytiems, Rocco, and Giac Jr? Not much special effects in this, because the more flashy I make it, the longer it takes, and thus...see above re: saving. It ends a second before I'd really like it to, but otherwise, I think it worked out well

Finding Me Chapter 3 (Doctor Who/Casanova PG-13)

Rating: PG-13
Spoilers: 4x13 Journey's End
Pairings: Rose/Ten.5, possible others in the future
Genre: Angst, Adventure, Romance
Summary: Sometimes things go terribly wrong, and sometimes everything falls apart. And sometimes, the universe expects you to pick up and keep on going anyway.

Disclaimer: Still not mine.

AN: This one took a bit longer, because I kept getting distracted it was sort of a complicated and awkward thing to write. Yet, it needed to be done, so we shall see where the story goes from here.



He'd mentioned to her once before, years ago, that his memories were sometimes confused after regenerating. )

Finding Me Chapter 2 (Doctor Who/Casanova PG-13)  
Title: Finding Me
Rating: PG-13
Spoilers: 4x13 Journey's End
Pairings: Rose/Ten.5, possible others in the future
Genre: Angst, Adventure, Romance
Summary: Sometimes things go terribly wrong, and sometimes everything falls apart. And sometimes, the universe expects you to pick up and keep on going anyway.

Disclaimer: Still not mine.

AN: Right, so I definitely had to get this chapter out quickly, because it's ridiculous to have a crossover fic in which there's not even a hint of the crossover. I will still count this as Rose/Ten.5 because, as of this moment, that's what it remains. There will be further notes after the chapter.

Finding Me (Doctor Who/Casanova 1/?)  
Title: Finding Me
Rating: PG-13
Spoilers: 4x13 Journey's End
Pairings: Rose/Ten.5, possible others in the future
Genre: Angst, Adventure, Romance
Summary: Sometimes things go terribly wrong, and sometimes everything falls apart. And sometimes, the universe expects you to pick up and keep on going anyway.

Disclaimer: Yeah nothing here is mine.

AN: So essentially I've had a plot bunny like this stuck in my head for awhile. It went through many phases as I sat around hoping to see someone write similar, or come across someone willing to RP an angle with it...and eventually, this is what we end up with when I get tired of waiting, apparently.



You could try t'be more polite. )
