Title: Paper Flowers
Warnings: Spoilers for Flowers in the Attic and Petals on the Wind. Obviously, given the books, heavy allusions to incest and child abuse. Also, there's quite of bit of cover art, so might take a moment to load.
Notes: Told mostly from the POVs of Cathy and Chris. I posted this to fanmix ages ago, but just joined up here so I thought I'd post. Enjoy!

The experience of survival is the key... to the gravity of love.

She was only taken aback once in her life and that was by a feeling so strange that at first she did not recognise it. Couldn't put a name to it, until she was forced to admit that it was love.

"Senhora" is a 19th century Brazilian novel about a young and poor girl (Aurélia) who is abandoned by her suitor (Fernando) in favor of a girl who has a good dowry. After she unexpectedly receives an inheritance and becomes rich, she decides to "buy" Fernando as her husband, making sure to inform him (on their wedding night no less) that she bought him because a husband is a necessary commodity for all respectable women. For the next eleven months they live estranged though they love each other, until Fernando finds the means to buy his freedom back.

Hello and welcome!

It has come to my attention that we have many, many, members but very few posts thus far. Thank you to those who have participated already, but for those who have not, feel no shame, as it takes time to establish the sort of community demand and supply necessary to get a community like this running.

With that said, it is clear some incentive is necessary to really get the ball rolling, so without further adieu I would like to present. . .

The Grand Opening of Bookwormusic FST Contest Extravaganza!

Here is how it works! I give you a theme, you make millions and millions of wonderful FSTs on novels that tackle that theme. Millions and millions of people download those FSTs at their leisure, deciding which ones they like best. At the end of December, I stop taking entries for the contest and then make a massive post sometime in early January in which people may vote for their favourite FSTs in various categories. Once we have a clear set of leading finalists in each category, I will make another post so that all members can determine who wins overall! At the end of it all, I make another post congratulating the winners of the various categories and rewarding them with the most glorious prize of all. . . internet cred! If I can scrape together the cash, I will also award the winner of Best FST Overall category with some manner of real, physical gift that you can actually hold in your hands! (OOH, AAH).

Since I have just written a paper on Celtic culture in the modern world, the theme of this contest is. . .:

Faith and Folklore
New perspectives on old stories

Faith and folklore can refer to anything that can be found on the The Encyclopedia Mythica that has been reworked or retold in a new way!

Some examples, just in case the premise isn't clear:
Native and Irish folklore in O.R. Melling's "The Book of Dreams"
Water-horses and the Loch Ness Monster in Diana Gabaldon's "Outlander"
Paganism in Neil Gaiman's "American Gods"
Christianity in Anne Rice's "Out of Egypt"

All FSTs must follow the usual rules of the community and should somehow relate to the contest's theme. Only members will be allowed to vote in winner's polls.

When posting a contest entry, follow the usual format of Author - Novel - FST Title but should now also include (Contest) at the end to denote an entry into the contest.

Example: Larissa Lai - Salt Fish Girl - Torn Clay (Contest)

Non-contest entry FSTs are still welcome to be posted throughout the month of December.

Any questions? Post 'em here!

Spread the word, upload your FSTs . . . and good luck to all entrants
