Notes:
Harley POV, This is AU, because it branches off from BMB canon from the time Mikhael finds out that an anonymous person kissed Harley at a party, and Harley failed to tell him about it, so Mik kicks him out. Some events have been changed to make it 'what if?', as well as some being added before a critical canon juncture. Apart from those little changes, it hopefully sticks to canon strips fairly well, and explains the situation regarding the Dean from Mik and Tybalt's past. This represented months of work, as I'm not terribly good at writing volume quickly. I hope you enjoy it!
Feedback: always welcome, as is constructive criticism. -- In my LJ I got some of the most wonderful, thoughtful, and personally satisfying (as an author) feedback I've ever gotten for something I've written. And I was lazy and I didn't always respond to it all. I'd like to take the opportunity to sincerely thank every single person that ever replied to this fic, it has been a personal favourite of mine for years, and to have had such an amazing response to it, still makes me very happy. I still go to the LJ pages listed below to read it because it makes me terribly thrilled and pleased.

Notes: The Santa photographer line is in there because I used to be one. :) One of the reasons these fics were so much fun to write was that I got to invent a whole lot of stuff, using a very basic framework to work from. This backstory of Mik's hadn't been explored in BMB, and I only knew it from talking to Sandra about it. With the basic ideas of what happened, it gave me a lot of flexibility to play with events. If we call C&C canon mik/ty before BMB started, it makes Tybalt missing out on seeing his parents at that juncture quite significant. This is explored in my WIP AU fic, Rewriting History.

Notes: A question was raised long ago as to why Tybalt in his occasionally unscrupulous way stop taking meds so as to comply with the track rules. For one, he would've been caught, and Tybalt getting caught is something he likes to avoid wherever possible. The other reason is that his track stuff has always been a point of personal pride -- a way to be better than everyone else. He'd consider it an affront to his talent to not compete purely under his own steam.

Notes: First in a series of 10 fics about Mikhael and Tybalt's relationship, pre-Harley. I always meant to cover the two years that they dated, including all that nonsense with the Dean, etc. I lost steam and got distracted by other projects along the way, so it currently sits only at 10 fics, all in chronological order (check summary for order), but in the last moment, I have resisted numbering them from 1-10 because I still have a few stray urges to go back and work into this more. It might not happen, but at least I won't mess up my system if I do. A lot of their break-up stuff ended up getting handled in my long one-shot All The King's Horses, and the ramifications are still being dealt with in my epically long (for me) WIP Rewriting History. Yes, even after about 7 years or some ridiculous amount of time, I'm still working on it! I just can't let it go.

Notes: While I think I'll always love Mik/Tybalt best, and the fan responses to potential Tybalt/Skids made me nutty, I didn't mind the idea of Tybalt and Gio ending up together. By the end of the comic, Gio had changed a lot, and definitely matured. Tybalt had realised he wasn't as infallible as he liked to think. They fit together much better than earlier on in the series, and while I'm not confident they could've kept the relationship alive, they would've had a good time while it lasted.

Notes: Harley POV. AU fic in which Harley hooked up with Tybalt instead of Mikhael. According to a conversation I had with the creator of BMB years ago, she said that when transplanting the cast from TiH to BMB, it was a 50/50 toss-up as to whether it was going to be Mik/Harl or Tybalt/Harl as that primary relationship. Mik/Harl obviously won, but I wondered what the flip-side might've been like. I maintain that the Harley in a relationship with Tybalt would have a few key differences in his makeup, being influenced by a different partner. For one, he'd be a lot better at manipulation.

My world was never the same, and neither was my BMB fic :) Very few people liked Tybalt at this stage of the game, and I actually remember being quite worried about backlash from Mik/Harl shippers at the time.

Notes: Tybalt POV. This completes the trifecta of Tybalt Torture Fics (tm), I think :) Again, not sure how I came up with half the stuff to write this... it's so not me! That and I have a mild aversion to knives... how on earth did I ever write Tybalt torture fics? This probably gave me my aversion. I don't remember having it before 2001 :D As always Tybalt is confident in what he does, but is always left wanting. I'm so glad he went to Utopia, where he could shag gods, and BMB, where he could.. er.. be a bitch and get his nose broken. Whoops.

Notes: Tybalt POV. It references situations of the incredibly short-lived vampire fandom (and precursor to bmb) This Is Home (hence the crossover of some characters). You don't have to know about it to know what's going on here, as it really is all about Tybalt being the losing party yet again. Poor guy, I love him, but in my fic he never wins, not emotionally. Schadenfreude to the extreme.
