Well... it's very quiet. Is anyone around?
I've gone for a different focus and different style this time round, and strangely, I don't dislike Jeanine so much after writing it. How strange. Comments would be greatly appreciated on this one, even if they're critical.
Rating: 18 or R (depending on your side of the Atlantic) to be safe
Genre: Drama, romance, a bit of angst
Pairing: David/Nigel (implied), David/Jeanine, Nigel/Jeanine
Word Count: 3543
Warnings: Strong language, adult content (although not graphic), slash
Author's Notes: In the extended edition of This Is Spinal Tap, it's mentioned that Nigel once slept with Jeanine. The thought of what was going through their heads at the time (besides the obvious, of course) inspired me, so this focuses on Nigel and Jeanine’s relationship, from 1977 to 2000. Feedback’s always welcome obviously, but I’ve gone for a different, present-tense based style to what I normally use (which personally I quite like although I don’t know how well it comes across to others), so any comments would be especially useful for this - good or bad! Finally, most of the dates and locations were taken from SpinalTapFan.com's A to Z, without which this would have been very confusing to write indeed - I've tried to keep it as 'canon' as possible.
Summary: They’re very similar, David tells her, Nigel and Jeanine; long lost spiritual acquaintances even, and that of course they’ll both recognise the connection instantly. The reality is somewhat different.
