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.

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 )

Title: One Art

Feedback: is beloved.
Pairing: none.
Word Count: 2 114.
Rating: PG
Genre: Angst, drama.
Summary: Mimi feels like a lost child for the first time, amongst the daring, the sick and the extraordinary.
Notes: The 4 challenges I used were challenges 45, 96, 124 and 165. The title is from Elizabeth Bishop's poem 'One Art', and I think the whole concept of the poem very much relates to Mimi.
The format is 14 150 ficlette 'chapters'. I'd like to do more with this, change it around a little, but I really wanted to enter something and this is the only opportunity I've got.
Special Thanks: To Greens. This is seriously the best and most fun writing challenge online, and I can only imagine how much time and work this takes. Thank you so, so much.
Spoilers: Mimi has HIV, oh noes!
Warnings: Pre-movie fic, strange formatting, slightly wonky because of exhaustion.
Disclaimer: Jonathan Larson owns Rent; I am merely a fan and make no profit from them. I own Mimi's family.

Special Thanks: My lovely mother who painstakingly taught me this particular life skill.
Spoilers: None. They're too little to have spoilers.
Warnings: Insane cuteness.
Disclaimer: Jonathan Larson owns Rent and all related thingy majigs.
