Special Thanks: [livejournal.com profile] starletfallen - the example of April's suicide spawned a plot bunny that was very agreeable after a weekend of chocolate ^_^

Title: Dying Alone
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lexie_b
Characters: Mimi; periphiral ensemble.
Word Count: 814
Rating: PG
Genre: Angst, tragedy
Summary: When you’re in the hospital long enough, you’re going to wake up alone, eventually - you should probably just be happy to wake up at all.
Disclaimer: Rent and all recognizable characters, locations and scenarios belongs to the estate of Jonathon Larson, and I make no profit from this purely fan-based venture.
Spoilers: Musical and movie.
Warnings: Angsty; bizarre new writing style.
Notes: I've had writer's block for ages, and I was so sick of not writing, I forced this out of my unwilling muses for [livejournal.com profile] rentchallenge. Experimenting with style, it's influenced a little by the books I've been reading - Alice Sebold's The Lovely Bones, and Kevin Brockmeier's The Brief History of the Dead. ^_^ And I know most of my work lately has focused on Mimi - I have a nice long Roger fic coming soon, I promise :)

And I can't leave this bed, risk forgetting all that's been )
