Burn the Forest, Leave the Trees
A Love’s the Burning Boy/In the Forests of the Night Heroes Fanmix Soundtrack


These are a few songs that motivated and inspired me over the past six months as I worked on this epic. Most of these songs served as the soundtrack for certain scenes in the story. I tend to think of my stories cinematically, hence why all the scenes have music under them in my head. I’ve listed the scene that each track goes with so you can listen as you read if you want! There are also two bonus tracks that are more traditionally fanmixy: they convey ideas and sentiments that meshed with a particular character’s state of mind.


WARNING: The descriptions for this fanmix contain spoilers for both stories. So read the stories first. Then go back and re-read with the soundtrack!

Okay. Whew. Here it is. This week seems like it's been nothing but writing, but I'm pretty happy with the result. I've been playing in this sandbox for more than six months now, and I want to say thank you to everyone who has commented thus far-- your encouragement helps keep me going! I'm sad to see the end of this story, but I'm excited to hear what ya'll think of it. So, without further ado:

And now, the exciting conclusion. )
brighteyedjill: Bones is pensive (Mylar: confrontation)
Is it really Friday? The exciting conclusion of In the Forests of the Night is coming out this weekend, never fear. It's just not coming out today. It's mostly written, but I want it to be the very best that it can be, and for that to happen, I need to be able to edit it. To give you a little perspective: most of the Burning Boy chapters had 3-4 scenes each. Some of the Forests chapters have up to nine scenes. This chapter has twenty-seven scenes. It's over 10,000 words. That's half a Big Boom story. So I promise there will be plenty to read when it comes out, I just need until Saturday or Sunday to polish it up for you. Deal?

In the meantime....


The missing smex from Chapter Nine. No, this time it's not Petrellis. )

It's Friday, and we all know what that means! Now that I've unlocked it, all you over-13-year-olds can read it.

All Gabriel could imagine was darkness: would they give him an injection, like putting an old cat to sleep, or would they simply shoot him out behind the barn? )

This chapter may have slapped me around a little, but I wrestled it into submission in time for my self-imposed Sunday deadline. Enjoy!

Rating: NC-17 overall (PG this chapter)

Summary: The line of Presidential succession goes into effect, Matt picks up some new clues about Hiro’s team, and Peter receives a gift.
Author’s note: Beta’d by the fabulous [livejournal.com profile] redandglenda. Remaining mistakes are mine. Oh, and as [livejournal.com profile] caelent pointed out last week, there was a criminal lack of Petrellis in the previous chapter. There are Petrellis this time.



Nathan had been born and bred for this opportunity, and he would not be weak now, would not show fear. )

And now... The sequel to my [livejournal.com profile] heroes_bigboom story begins! I hope to be able to post a new chapter each week. Let me know what you think!



Ttitle: In the Forests of the Night – Chapter One (of Ten)

Characters: Ensemble, Peter/Nathan in later chapters. Other slashiness if you squint.
Rating: NC-17 overall (PG this chapter)
Word Count: 3,000
Warnings: Violence, angst, adult situations, slash.

Summary: (This is the sequel to Love’s the Burning Boy. I suggest you read it first, but if you can’t, you can probably catch on pretty quickly.) If you can’t change the past, you have to live with the present and work toward a better future. Nathan attempts to lead, Peter finds a new path, and Mohinder has to decide what side he’s on. Hiro and his team try to bring all the pieces together while other special people are working towards a different end.


There was no one in the front room, no one guarding the door. Hiro exchanged an uneasy glance with Ando. )
