Heya :) I'm Goldie- as the username implies, I'm -still- Goldie1899, which was the AOL screen name I used to run around under- although only one of many, and only one nickname of many. I'd say I've been away from the fandom for a long time, but that isn't really true- I've been sort of fruitlessly searching for old friends, and enjoying that my roommate/boyfriend is also a newsies fan, and we RP newsies together. But I've sort of finally just come to the conclusion that I probably won't ever find my old gang of newsies fans, and maybe it might be time to meet some new ones. That said, I figured join a few communities, say hello, and present one of my favourite abstract fics while I'm at it? It's a few years old, but it's informed the writing style I still use for the short little bits of fic I write to for filler in the RPs I play with my boyfriend. Hope you enjoy.
Title: Going Back to Before
Genre: Not sure / Nostalgia?
Pairings/Characters: Unnamed OC/Unnamed Newsies
Synopsis: A lifetime before, she walked away everything she had as a newsie, all her friends, the love of her life. She's lived a lifetime, in the meantime, and now finds herself on the same old familiar streets, looking for something that is no longer there.
Comments: A one-shot, better called a ficlet then a proper fic. This came about a few years ago when I realized all the folks I used to write fic with when I was a teenager were long gone, and I would probably never find most of them again. I transferred that sense of...loneliness to my staple newsgirl, although she remains unnamed in the fic. It's set in the 1940's, although that's not really all that important.
