Pairing: Mark/Roger
Word Count: 2531
Rating: R
Genre: angst
Summary: Mark lies in the hospital after a suicide attempt, fully prepared for another attempt.

And uh, guys… y’all know, if you’re thinking of killing yourself, or if someone you know is, get help. Mark’s really lucky, in this story. Not everyone is.
Special Thanks: Greens, for giving 1-day challenges another chance.
Spoilers: Mark went to Brown
Warnings: suicide, swearing, maltreatment of children

 It's What You Hear
fadinglantern @ Title: It's What You Hear
Author: Sharp
Feedback: Always.
Pairing: Mark/Roger, Roger/Maureen
Word Count: 4,000
Rating: T
Genre: General
Summary: Suburban conditioning tells Mark that it's unnatural, it's strange, and it's wrong. And maybe he believes it a little too much.
Notes: Okay. Look. This probably has... extra words. As in, words it doesn't need. Why? Because I was going for seven typed pages (about four thousand words) on Microsoft Word, and as it turns out, seven pages is something ENTIRELY different for an eight-point font. So. Yeah, there are a lot of extra words that I could have avoided.
Spoilers: None.
Warnings: Um… underage smoking?
Disclaimer: Jonathan’s.

His arms are wrapped tightly enough around himself that if he were a balloon, there'd be colorful little bits of Mark scattered all over the room.Collapse )

 This Is Her Mistake
a_bit_of_wit @ TITLE: This Is Her Mistake
AUTHOR: AC
PAIRING: Highschool Roger/Maureen (-shiver-)
GENRE: Angst
PROMPT: Highschool Uncanon Pairing.
SUMMARY: Maureen knows she should have never been with him. She knows this so well that it hurts her, just looking at his hand entangled in hers makes her feel almost sick with herself. She knows he’s not holding it because he wants to, but because he has to, and he feels tied to her now, as they must drag one another around forever.
NOTES: I am both liberated and disgusted by this piece.

 Time To Change
jibus @ Title: Time To Change
Author: Jessica Dawn
Feedback: Please. I hope I did it justice
Pairing: Mark/Maureen, mentioned Roger/April, implied Joanne/Maureen
Word Count: 9, 160
Rating: I'm going to go with T Genre: Angst/Friendship
Summary: “I’d like a Roger withdrawal fic between Roger and Mark, where Roger does get abusive, but doesn’t come across as a baby wanting his bottle. I’d like real emotion to it, something that I can believe would happen. I’ve read a few on ff.net, and some authors get the idea, but most take on the evilRoger!bad! slant. I want abuse for a reason, and I want Mark to feel scared, have a healthy moment of doubt, then decide he’s going to stick it out with Roger and see him through. But Roger has to give him a good reason to stay. I’d prefer it stay gen., because slashing it is too easy.” – leenys
Notes: HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD! I'm also going to be editing tags. I'm posting with literally seconds to spare.
Special Thanks: Leenys. You gave me my inspiration back with this one.
Spoilers: None.
Warnings: Violence, Language...
Disclaimer: I don't own any of the characters following the tag.

 Challenge 288: If He Had Any Other Choice
l_stone @ Title: If He Had Any Other Choice
Author: L. Stone
Feedback: greatly appreciated
Pairing: Mark/Roger
Word Count: 3,470
Rating: PG-13
Genre: angst...angst is totally a genre
Summary: No one changes this quickly, this suddenly, this completely, and he knows its.  Pre-RENT.
Notes: Written for lexaprose, who requested a "ridiculously angsty" Mark/Roger, "in which one copes with something bad happening to him" and the other finds out, and eventually, after possibly becoming angry, comforts the first.  Also to include Collins.
     And as for the story itself: I liked the idea when I started, but then began to freak out toward the end that I didn't have the skillz to make it realistic, and there are, it's true, many, many plot holes and unrealistic aspects and etc.  Honestly, if I had had more time, this would be lot...better in various ways, and probably less confusing to read.  Otherwise, I must say that I've never written a request before, so I'm super-paranoid about that in particular.  Lexaprose, I hope that it fits the request to a tolerable degree, and that it has the proper amount of angst.  (Yeah, of all the things I could worry about with this, I worry about the angst.)
Special Thanks: To Greens, for getting me my assignment, and to whoever writes for me.
Spoilers: for the existence, and general character traits of, Mark, Roger, and Collins
Warnings: drug use, alcohol use, non-graphic violence, allusions to sex, and language.
Disclaimer: I do not own RENT, any of its characters, including and especially Mark, Roger, and Collins, or any of its settings.  I do own David, but he's just a prop so, nothing impressive there.

I do owe you a story. ;) Also it’s firegold/film-and-junk’s characters of Mark and 17!Roger used with full permission.
