situation: what i'd like is a fic inspired by don mclean's crossroads. i've always loved this song. it's so sad, but hopeful, too, and the duo in my head for the last couple of years has been exactly that -- sad and yet hopeful. the setting is post-war. peace is a good thing, but it's also a big unknown thing that an ex-soldier can very easily get lost in. and sometimes even when you have somebody to save you, it's almost impossible to let yourself be saved. that's what this fic is about. it's about duo coming to the end of his rope (and by this i do not in any way mean that he's lost his sanity, just that he's reached the limit of what he is and knows he has to become more, to let things go) and reaching out to the one person he's truly let close (heero, natch) though he doesn't know how to ask or even what he's asking for. so. yeah. that's it in a nutshell. *rolls eyes* anybody think they can do something with this?
I've got nothing on my mind: Nothing to remember,
Nothing to forget. And I've got nothing to regret,
But I'm all tied up on the inside,
No one knows quite what I've got;
And I know that on the outside
What I used to be, I'm not anymore.
You know I've heard about people like me,
But I never made the connection.
They walk one road to set them free
And find they've gone the wrong direction.
But there's no need for turning back
'Cause all roads lead to where I stand.
And I believe I'll walk them all
No matter what I may have planned.
Can you remember who I was? Can you still feel it?
Can you find my pain? Can you heal it?
Then lay your hands upon me now
And cast this darkness from my soul.
You alone can light my way.
You alone can make me whole once again.
We've walked both sides of every street
Through all kinds of windy weather.
But that was never our defeat
As long as we could walk together.
So there's no need for turning back
'Cause all roads lead to where we stand.
And I believe we'll walk them all
No matter what we may have planned.
if i could figure out how to share an mp3, i'd have done it. >_< as it is, if you have the capacity to find this so you can listen to it... well, that'd be a good thing. or you can ask me for a copy. that i can do. heh...
