[fic] Empire City (2012) § 10/13
misc • dark • empty
glitterati

Title: Empire City
Author: Vee
Rating: NC-17
Genre: Contemporary, Dark
Chapter: 10/13
Summary: This city is not without its secrets, from the sordid and personal to the sort of thing that would call down the wrath of God. Everyone's connected, whether they know it or not, and whether they like it or not. Where does the shiny surface end and the underbelly begin? Where do the respectable become the deplorable? Where is that place in between, where murderers, prostitutes, and drug dealers dictate their own class system, their own law? Well, that might just be here. 
Warnings: Sex, drugs, and more sex. :D 
POV: Joe

A/N: Eek, I went a few days without updating, and before I knew it, it was November 3rd! It's all right because I've already finished Chapter One of The Heights, which will be ready for posting just as soon as I've gotten Empire City all up and fly. This chapter features one of my favorite OT3s from the fandom that preceded it... *bites knuckle* yeah, sometimes the plotting in Empire City was done with the express purpose of driving certain characters into bed together. Read and enjoy!

Chapter: 09/13
Summary: This city is not without its secrets, from the sordid and personal to the sort of thing that would call down the wrath of God. Everyone's connected, whether they know it or not, and whether they like it or not. Where does the shiny surface end and the underbelly begin? Where do the respectable become the deplorable? Where is that place in between, where murderers, prostitutes, and drug dealers dictate their own class system, their own law? Well, that might just be here. 
Warnings: Allusions to prostitution and pederasty. Evan and Julian shared something of a psychologically - and then physically - abusive relationship. ymmv on how much of a warning that merits. Other than that, Evan keeps it classy. 

POV: Evan

A/N: So what's up between Evan and Julian that it could actually impact the inner workings of The Empire? What we desperately want to know about The Empire's most intriguing member can only be explained by the man who knows him in ways no one else can claim... as told to the man who only thinks he does. 

I like this chapter. I like Evan's voice. I like his classy ennui. I like that all roads lead to Evan, really. ALL ROADS. In so many ways this is the linchpin chapter. If you have your character relationship charts handy, you might get to fill in a few lines here. ;) The big reveal behind Alistair's history is forthcoming...!

Warnings: Sex and intrigue, some murder allusions.
POV: Cory and Kiki

A/N: Some of these names are really pleasing me, in their new forms. Julian Kendrick is among them, the name just sounds right. :3 Well, this one was interesting to edit because I had to finally add last names in places, considering The Empire's way of nettling each other with full names, etc. So that's why I'm focusing on the names in the A/N. Beyond that, though, take a look at some more foreshadowing about The Heights in here, ooo hoo hoo hoo!

Summary: This city is not without its secrets, from the sordid and personal to the sort of thing that would call down the wrath of God. Everyone's connected, whether they know it or not, and whether they like it or not. Where does the shiny surface end and the underbelly begin? Where do the respectable become the deplorable? Where is that place in between, where murderers, prostitutes, and drug dealers dictate their own class system, their own law? Well, that might just be here. 
Warnings: Huh, okay, let me think abou--oh yeah, cannibalism. Murder. Um, graphic violence. You know, normal stuff. 
POV: Christian

A/N: Looking back and remembering how much it exhausted me to write this chapter, I'm just giddy to look at it all grown up. XD I don't have much to say, really. I sort of love these two, honestly.

Warnings: Really just sex here. Yeah, Christopher and Alistair, you're just adorable 
POV: Christopher

A/N: LOL I realize now that Christopher must have been my prototype for Acclamation Dominic. In my mind these two even sort of look like Matt and Dom, truth be told. Except Christopher is markedly taller. Because they were based on Silver Pair. But Choutarou is already Dominic, tbh, 

I love Nate's cameo here. It's fun to write someone who obviously has no idea how a private investigator works. Awww babby.

Summary: This city is not without its secrets, from the sordid and personal to the sort of thing that would call down the wrath of God.

Warnings: Murder, dub con, allusions to underage sex, desecration of-- okay you know what just put "yeah a lot" here
POV: Julian

A/N: I'd be lying to say I'm not giddy about posting Julian's chapter, finally. Julian was based on my favorite character from the original fandom, which will be super obvious if you know the fandom. Julian disturbs me, but at the same time my psychological interest in him knows no bounds (looks ahead to sequel). Basically I've taken innocent canon personalities and said "what if I made these character flaws extremely sinister?" and let me tell you, it's unsettling how easy an analogue "murder" is for "middle school tennis" (to quote Tumblr: "how can you call something so dramatic tennis."). ANYWAY...

Another unifying theme of Empire City seems to be that so many main characters have a thing for younger guys. Yeah we haven't even gotten to Evan yet.

Anyone who's reading - thank you!!! This story is so exciting for me to rediscover and rework.

Everyone's connected, whether they know it or not, and whether they like it or not. Where does the shiny surface end and the underbelly begin? Where do the respectable become the deplorable?

Warnings: Allusion to underage prostitution, some generally thematic overtones.
POV: Nate

A/N: I’m going to try to post a chapter a day, and maybe two a day on the weekend coming up because I want this to be up by Halloween. Because reasons. Nate has the least offensive chapters of the whole story, truth be told. Which is fitting since Nate is just a ~*great guy*~, and one of the only ~*great guys*~ in this universe. The plot begins to thicken in this chapter. Get your relationship charts ready! :D

Warnings: Drug use, general criminal activity, ruminations on violence, pervasive language, and explicit sexual situations.

POV: Eugene

A/N: Posting Empire City in a reworked format has been something I've put off since 2008, when it was first completed. This story was born in fandom, but trust me that couldn't be farther from pertinent. If you know anything about the fandom there are a few little references good for a chuckle, but all in all it was the first A/U I wrote that really grew beyond the source inspiration alarmingly easily. I've finally gotten up the courage to say "fuck it" and post it here. It's been up in its original format on my old writing journal since the beginning, but here it is cleaned up and modified and submitted for your approval! I figured that Halloween was the perfect time to debut it all over again, and see how it holds up now.

I'll be honest, there are things in this story that sort of disturb me, looking back. I love it, and it was a fantastic challenge for myself to write. I was going through the darkest time ever when I wrote it, which may be obvious. I don't want anyone to feel the need to read if they may be triggered later by the events, so let me lay on the line some of the things that transpire as it progresses (just to touch on my laundry list of warnings): murder, dub-con, emotional manipulation, cannibalism, borderline-necrophilia, sibling incest, underage prostitution, oh god let me just stop there because yeah this is usually where I lose my nerve to post this.

If you do want to read, enjoy! Beyond all the elements that make me chuckle worryingly at myself, I have always and probably will always love this story and I'm really excited to share it. After five years I'm very pleased to see if it holds up!
