I don't know how anyone else reacted but I was completely shocked by Heath Ledger's death earlier today. I have always enjoyed him as an actor and I was eagerly anticipating his turn as the Joker in the newest Batman movie this coming summer. I actually had a story brewing in my head for some time with him imagined as one of the characters and with his death today, I wanted to post the idea for everyone to read. This story would be a one-shot or possibly a short multi-chaptered story. I was going to work on it after A Fairy Tale and The Wit of the Staircase but now, I am feeling inclined to work on it sooner rather than later.
The Wedding Party
At the wedding of Charlie Harlow and Tracey Crawford, the maid of honor, Nora Fleming, and the best man, Tim Dorman, are in the same room for the first time since their break-up two years earlier. As the reception stretches late into the night, Nora and Tim will both reminisce on their relationship that was once deemed perfect by everyone who knew them and try to make sense of their reasons for breaking up in the first place. Four best friends, one wedding, one night and one last chance.
